Man held in student’s murder


Police have charged a Kentucky man with murder in the disappearance of an 18-year-old college student from Indiana.

Louisville Metro Police say 40-year-old Gregory O’Bryan was arrested early Tuesday and charged in the death of Andrew Compton of Carmel, Ind. Compton was a culinary student at Sullivan University in Louisville who was last seen Oct. 28.

Police say a search of Compton’s computer found e-mails between him and O’Bryan.

O’Bryan originally told detectives that he met Compton on Oct. 28, and the younger man left his apartment on foot after the two had sex.

WLKY-TV cites arrest records in reporting that O’Bryan told officers Compton died during sex and he disposed of the body.
