Earthly bodies located and identified; Joshua Fredrick Wetzer and Tommy Dean Welch - Clemmons, North Carolina

CLEMMONS, N.C. — Two families received the kind of news Monday they never wanted to hear — that the skeletal remains of two men missing for five years had been found in shallow graves in the backyard of a house in Clemmons.

Authorities positively identified the remains as belonging to Joshua Fredrick Wetzler and Tommy Dean Welch. Both men were reported missing in 2009 and, according to search warrants, they were killed that same year and buried.

Forsyth County Sheriff's investigators executed a search warrant Oct. 5 at 2749 Knob Hill Drive and unearthed the skeletal remains.

Pazuzu Algarad, 35, and Amber Nicole Burch, 24, who lived at the house, have each been charged with first-degree murder and accessory after the fact of first-degree murder.

Krystal Nicole Matlock, 28, has been charged with accessory after the fact of first-degree murder.
