Police: Kin of Afghan slay suspect may live in Ohio

Posted:

EVENDALE, Ohio (WKOW) -- Police in a Cincinnati suburb say it may be home to a person related to a U.S. soldier accused of gunning down 16 Afghan civilians.

Authorities Friday night released a statement saying a relative of the soldier may live in Evendale, Ohio.

Police Chief Niel Korte asked reporters to refrain from identifying the resident out of worry the safety of that person and neighborhood would be jeopardized.

The suspect in the shootings has been identified as Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, who lives in Lake Tapps, Washington. He arrived Friday night at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth.
