Two teens missing from Pleasantville Cottage School charged in BX murder
Two teens missing from the Pleasantville Cottage School in Mount Pleasant have been found and charged with a murder in the Bronx. Police say 18-year-old Raynell Poole and 16-year-old Dashawn Harris are behind bars for the murder of 26-year-old Monique Hattan of the Bronx. Her body was found on the roof of her Bronx apartment building last Tuesday night. She had been missing for two weeks. Police say she was raped, stabbed to death and stuffed into a garbage can. The Pleasantville Cottage School is a residence for troubled youth. School officials say they notified the authorities the boys were missing. It appears the boys ended up in the Bronx and befriended Meek Hall, the boyfriend of the victim. Police say he invited Poole and Harris to move into their apartment.
