Thirty-four-year-old Joseph Krahn has been charged with three counts of first degree murder for all three deaths.

Nineteen-year-old Shane Mays has been charged with two counts of first degree murder for the deaths of Fisher and Leavitt.

Thirty-three-year-old Brian Flowers and 30-year old Joseph Lowry have both been charged with one count of first degree murder for the death of Leavitt. They are both also charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Twenty-six-year-old Richard Folsom was initially arrested in connection to the crime, but a press release from Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay did not list him as being charged.

Investigators have been attempting to locate a 2006 Red Pontiac G6 in connection with the murders.  Police confirmed a red Pontiac found last Friday in the river is the vehicle they have been looking for.
