BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — A Morgan County man accused of murdering then dumping the body of a 15 year-old girl in 2019 has been indicted on new charges.

Andy McCauley

Andy McCauley, Jr, 41 of Berkeley Springs, was arrested in May for the murder of Riley Crossman.

She was reported missing on May 8 by her family after they received a notification from her school that she was marked absent.

A community search consisting of law enforcement, community leaders and residents lasted nearly a week.

Crossman’s body was found on May 16 by law enforcement in Berkeley County. Her body was located over an embankment in the 5500 block of Tuscarora Pike, west of Martinsburg.

After a complex investigation between multiple agencies, West Virginia State Police arrested McCauley on May 16.

Morgan County Prosecuting Attorney Dan James said a grand jury met Tuesday to indict McCauley on charges of first degree murder and concealment of a deceased human body.

McCauley will be arraigned in front of a Morgan County Circuit Judge later in January.
