UPDATE: Court Documents Reveal 2 Suspects Confess to Murder

LEBANON -- A young man with dreams of enlisting in the Navy was brutally murdered at his home in Wayne Township. On Thursday, the suspected killers faced a judge in Warren County.

Justin Back, 18, was found dead Wednesday in Preble County. He had been beaten, stabbed and shot.

Court documents show two 19-year-old men have confessed to killing him. Austin Myers and Timothy Mosley are charged with aggravated murder. 

Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims says Myers and Mosley went to Back's home to rob him, but investigators found evidence of a brutal attack.

Back's stepfather called 911 to report his safe and his gun were missing, and told the dispatcher he and his wife were concerned because they could not find Justin.

ABC 22 and FOX 45 spoke Thursday with Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell. He says this case kept him awake Wednesday night, and added that only three people know why Mosley and Myers killed Back in his Corwin Road home. They'll be back in court next week.

Justin Back attended the Warren County Career Center, where staff and students are mourning his death.

In a statement, Career Center Superintendent Maggie Hess states: "Our hearts go out to his family and friends. He was a good student when he was here."

Wayne Local School Superintendent Pat Dubbs stated: "We are mourning the loss of a life so full of potential."

WAYNESVILLE -- Two 19-year-old men are behind bars for aggravated murder after the mutilated body of of an 18 year old was found.

Investigators say this was a brutal murder and it was personal. The victim and one of the men arresting for killing him both went to Waynesville High School together.

Eighteen-year-old Waynesville High graduate Justin Back was headed to the Navy next month. But before he had the opportunity to serve our country, deputies say he was shot, choked and stabbed to death by 19-year-olds Timothy Mosley of Clayton and a homeless Austin Myers.

"There is some indication that this may have even been preplanned to cause the death of Justin Back," Warren County Sheriff Larry Sims said in a press conference.

Justin's parents reported their home in the 5300 block of Corwin Road had been burglarized and their son was missing. When deputies arrived, it was clear more than a just a robbery had taken place.

The two suspects were at the home with Justin on Monday.

"There was indication of blood in the residence, there was other indications of violence, there was some evidence that things had been ransacked," Sheriff Sims explained. "Visiting, talking [and] quite honestly it could've been to scope about the place, case the place."

Justin's body was found in an undisclosed location in Preble County at noon Wednesday. Mosley and Myers were arrested in Clayton and are charged with aggravated murder.

Investigators say a safe and gun stolen from the home was recovered. The suspects, who have a criminal history, are expected to be arraigned Thursday.
