Air Force investigators to interview local family members of airman charged in son’s murder


Air Force investigators will be turning their attention to the family and friends of the Indiana airman accused of killing his 15-month old son, to learn more about what may have led to the tragedy.

Matthew Theurer of Portland, Ind., was arrested after the body of his baby, Matthew, was discovered in a bag on the side of a highway about 100 miles away from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina.

Theurer, senior airman at the military base, is charged with voluntary manslaughter, negligent homicide and murder.

An Air Force spokesperson said investigators would soon be in touch with loved ones here in Indiana to learn more about the suspect.

“They will be in touch with family in Indiana and others who know him,” said Linda Card from the Air Force, Office of Special Investigations.

“Everybody’s basically praying for them,” said neighbor Justin Winters. “It leaves everybody speechless.”
