Over 100 items seized connected to Aprina Paul's disappearance

Posted:

JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Court records released Friday show investigators seized more than one hundred items, including marijuana and possible human teeth, from an Evansville home in connection with the disappearance of 18-year old Aprina Paul of Fitchburg.

An affidavit for a search warrant for the property states authorities suspect the man renting the home, 29-year old Nathan Middleton, of first degree intentional homicide.

Authorities say Middleton has told detectives Paul answered his online ad seeking sex, and after taking Paul to his home, they had sex and used drugs, and Middleton discovered Paul unresponsive the next morning. Authorities say Middleton said he burned Paul's body in a burn pit he dug on the property.

Search warrant records state officers seized a chainsaw, tools, women's makeup, fixtures, material from the burn pit, sixteen possible teeth, a bag of marijuana and many other items.

Middleton remains in the Rock County jail on a probation hold. Middleton was convicted in 2005 of armed burglary. Court records show a burglary accomplice told a detective Middleton talked about wanting to kill people.
