Sick. A t.v. report said that he covered the bodies with a blanket because he didn't want to look at them while he did laundry. Sick bastage.

TazDevil, thanks for the additional information. Wonder how come they were there, did he see them "out and about" and offer them a place to stay, did they know him beforehand, or what? Whatever - he killed them and just kept the bodies there? Disgusting. Something like this, I can almost bet the paycheck that he'll plead insanity, that "voices told him to do it," or something similar.

(Note to the nitpickers; yes, I know they haven't PROVED anything against this guy. If it turns out he didn't do anything and he's released, I'll change my comments. But for now, my comments are directed towards what's in the story)

My god. I grew up in Pottsville, left there in 1991 when I was 24. You never hear of stuff like this happening up there. What are people thinking?

Probably another sicko not taking his pills because he thinks he doesn't need them anymore. At least that is what the voices tell him. Time for my pills!!!

If you do a search on Myspace for Josh Yevak (under full name search) several options come up go to the one where Josh is kissing a girl and then click on pics. There are pictures of the man charged with Josh,(imo, looks like they are partying) and Josh refers to the man as "uncle Ed". Don't know if it really is his uncle or just a nickname. Just thought I would throw this info out there. Also it seems that the last time that Josh signed into the account was March 3

That the problem! All these sickos are known by there doctors to be dangerous, but they just figure if they take their medicine they will be okay, but the problem is they don't, so who controls that!

Did I read the artical correctly when it indicated the girl was missing for three weeks? I heard nothing of a missing teen from Port Carbon... God Bless the families. What a true waste of life.

Wow Ang, are you sure you aren't a detective?:0) Good work there! That guy is CREEPY looking, he's the kind of guy who would make me cross the street if he was walking my way, looks like he's definately not taking his lithium or something. But as an aside I'm shocked that this happened in Pottsville! I don't live there but I went to nursing school there and I never heard of something like this there! Just goes to show that no matter where you are you can't trust anyone or anything anymore sadly.

The Death Penalty needs to be re-instituted. The main reason why we have more and more heinous crimes is because people are not afraid to go to jail anymore. For most criminals going to jail is like going to college. Tell them they're going to face Ol' Sparky and see how quickly the coward in them comes out.
