Siblings Arrested in Connection With Missing Andover Man
A brother and sister of a missing Andover man allegedly burnt his body in a bonfire following a dispute over an inheritance, and were arrested Friday, the Star Tribune reported.
Andrew T. Hawes, 36 and Elizabeth M. Hawes, 43, were held in Anoka County jail â€œon suspicion of second-degree murder,â€? according to the Star Tribune.
Edwin Charles Hawes, 46, was reported missing Thursday afternoon, by his roommate who had found blood in their driveway, according to the Pioneer Press.
Authorities found the brother and sister standing over a bonfire the following day â€œburning human remains believed to be those of Hawes,â€? the Pioneer Press reported. A charred torso found in the pit has not been officially identified yet, according to the Pioneer Press.
Edwin Hawes had been granted protection orders against his brother and sister following an incident on July 19. Andrew Hawes had â€œrammed his truck into his brotherâ€™s car,â€? and pushed it into oncoming traffic, the Pioneer Press reported.
The feud allegedly revolves around their 97- year- old grandmotherâ€™s property; Edwin Hawes had been named as conservator, according to the Star Tribune.
