Police previously asked the public for assistance in locating Blackmon, who was believed to be in danger, after the body of 17-year-old Michael Beasley’s body was found Monday morning in the 1000 block of North Ash. His death is being investigated as a criminal homicide.

The investigation is ongoing. Police have not said how Blackmon died.
