November 30, 2017

UPDATED (7:12 p.m.): A 23-year-old West Philly resident has been charged in the murder of a teenager whose body was found in an alley on the 200 block of South 49th Street earlier this week.

Police say Cole Herring led them to the body of 15-year-old Sabriyah McLean on Tuesday morning. Herring’s parents convinced him to turn himself in to police after he told them about the alleged murder. McLean, who turned 15 in October, was from Delaware, and her parents had reported her missing, according to police.

Herring, who lives in an apartment building near where McLean’s body was found, reportedly met her online. 

He has been charged with murder, arson and abuse of a corpse, according to court documents. Police say he set McLean’s body on fire after he stabbed her nearly 50 times.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 20 in courtroom 306 of the Juanita Kidd Stout Center for Criminal Justice.
