Teen Arrested For Murdering and Burning His Family in El Dorado Cnty.

Oct 2, 2015

The weeks-long missing persons mystery in El Dorado has been solved by the arrest of a teen boy -- accused of killing his three family members last month and burning their remains in a remote cabin. 

Nolan Buchanan was taken into custody at his high school yesterday, after investigators determined he was the missing link in the odd disappearances of his father, stepmother, and their 8-year-old son earlier in September.

The 16-year-old has been charged as an adult for the triple homicide as well as for arson in setting ablaze a vacation home with his three victims’ bodies hidden inside.

The juvenile suspect now faces three separate counts of murder in the shooting deaths of 38-year-old Adam Buchanan, 37-year-old Molly McAfee, and the couple’s young son Gavin Buchanan.

Police have not provided a motive in this latest case of parricide.
