Family gathers to remember Armada teen

ARMADA, Mich. (WXYZ) - 7 Action News has learned the men arrested in a raid in connection with the murder investigation of April Millsap, will be held another night and likely will be arraigned Friday, on charges related to pot found in the home.

Their names will not be released until that arraignment.

They are being held at the St. Clair County Jail near Port Huron.

Police sources tell Action News the men did not say much, when interviewed, and the interview process is pretty much over.

Meanwhile, Action News re-visited the home Thursday, to see if others living there had a comment. An older woman was home but refused to talk.

Records show a 66 year old registered sex offender lives at the address of the home.

The FBI tells ABC News, phone records are proving key in the investigation into who killed the 14 year old.

Agents say multiple texts were sent from April's phone, recovered at the crime scene.

State police told Action News Thursday, no arrests have been made in the Millsap case, and people should not assume the killer has been located. They are still asking for tips from the public.

Meanwhile, April Millsap's parents and grandparents hugged outside an Armada funeral home Thursday, as they prepared for her visitation.

Her funeral will be held at 11 am Friday at St. Mary Mystical Rose Church, 24040 Armada Ridge Road in Armada.

Millsap's body was found July 24 by joggers who alerted police around 8:30 p.m. She was found in a wooded area after her dog led the joggers to her body.

She was taking her dog for a walk and never returned home, according to police.

A fund has been set up at Fifth Third Bank in April's name for her family. People can also donate on her family's GoFundMe page HERE. 

Anyone with information regarding her murder is asked to call 1-877-616-4677.
