Indiana—Police have arrested three people in connection with the death of a Terre Haute radio personality Matt Luecking. Investigators say officers found Leucking’s body Monday at his apartment and soon knew they were dealing with a homicide. His cause of death hasn’t been released, and an autopsy has been scheduled for a later time. His vehicle was missing and authorities were later contacted about a man trying to use Luecking’s bank card at Walmart. Police tracked the man’s license plate to a Parke County address, and they found two men loading things into Luecking’s car. After interviewing the men at the scene, they arrested John Collins, 24, for his murder. Detectives made two more arrests in the case. Benjamin J. Selig, 28, of Rockville, faces a preliminary charge of assisting a criminal, a level 5 felony. Kathleen E. Featherstone, 25, of Terre Haute, faces preliminary charges of felony murder, robbery and burglary. Police say more arrests are possible. Leucking was well-known in the area, and he most recently worked for WFNB-FM (B 92.7).
