Authorities say they believe the suspect in last month’s slaying of a Spring Valley teenager met the girl online. A press conference was held yesterday on the slaying of 16-year-old Diamond Bradley of Spring Valley and Monday’s arrest of 26-year-old Richard A. Henderson of Standard. Putnam County Sheriff Kevin Doyle said investigators believe Henderson drove Bradley to a rural roadway in Granville Township on January 24th and killed her in the area where her stabbed body was found three days later. Henderson is charged with concealing the girl’s death. Doyle said more charges are expected and investigators are confident that Henderson killed the girl. Henderson is being held on $1 million bond.
