Curwensville, PA – Nearly 8 months after the death of Chase Anderson, a teenager from Curwensville, three people are now facing charges related to his murder.
22-year-old Kenja Tew of Clearfield and 38-year-old Denny Bailey of Woodland both face criminal homicide charges. 26-year-old Chantell Demi faces charges of criminal conspiracy.
19-year-old Chase Anderson’s body was found on Aug. 26 in the woods in Pike Township, Clearfield County.
Although police had taken suspects into custody in August as they were investigating the murder, charges weren’t actually filed until April 3.
Anderson had reportedly been working for Bailey and was delivering meth and other drugs from Pittsburgh.
After multiple interviews with the suspects and witnesses, Bailey and Tew eventually took responsibility for Anderson’s murder. They allegedly stabbed him multiple times before setting fire to his body.
Tew, Bailey, and Demi were incarcerated on parole violations shortly after the investigation began.
Police are still searching for another man, 38-year-old Joseph Ralston of Curwensville, who they say was involved in destroying evidence. Ralston and Demi were allegedly told by Bailey to set fire to a vehicle owned by Bailey’s mother.
A warrant was issued for Ralston’s arrest. If you know where he might be, please call State Police in Clearfield at 814-857-3800.
Preliminary hearings for Tew, Bailey, and Demi are scheduled for April 11.
