OTTAWA, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The search for three missing boys that ended with two of them dead and the third charged with their murder began with a frantic 911 call made by Shellie Grothause on the afternoon of May 9, 2013.
"We have three children that are missing," Grothause told the dispatcher.
Grothause went on to tell dispatchers she had returned to her Ottawa home that Thursday afternoon because she had been unable to get in contact with her 17-year-old son, Blake Romes. Blake was scheduled to leave on a school field trip to Washington D.C. that day. When Grothause learned he had not boarded the bus, she began to call his cell phone. When Blake did not answer, she returned home to investigate.
"There's blood in my house, and there's a gun in my house. My car is missing," she told a 911 dispatcher.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert for Blake, his 14-year-old brother Blaine and 17-year-old Michael Aaron Fay, who also lived in the North Perry Street home. Police announced the three may have been in Grothause's 2006 Chevy HHR.
The Amber Alert was canceled hours later when Fay was found with the vehicle in the Columbus area, more than 100 miles from Ottawa's El Crest manufactured home community where the three were last seen.
Later that evening, the bodies of Blake and Blaine Romes were found in a ditch along Road 7 just outside of Ottawa.
Fay was held on Grand Theft Auto charges for more than a week before being charged with the brothers' murders on May 17. The same day, prosecutors filed a motion to transfer Fay's case to Putnam County Common Pleas Court, meaning they intend to try him as an adult.
Although the murder charges Fay faces could bring the death penalty for someone over the age of 18, Fay's age at the time of the alleged crimes means the maximum penalty he could face is life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Family members, friends and classmates were shocked, horrified and saddened to learn of the boys' deaths.
"They always had a smile on their face, they were always happy," said their uncle Brent Romes. "They never met a stranger. They were always best friends by the end of the conversation."
"I miss them both," said Roman Osborn. "They were both good friends of mine, and I want them back."
