MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police ends the search for the body of murdered Milwaukee rapper Evon Young. Police were searching a landfill in Menomonee Falls after the suspects admitted to dumping Young's body in a garbage dumpster.

Young was killed by a group of gang members on New Year's Day. The group tortured and killed Young, because they believed Young allowed the residence he shared with Billy Griffin to be burglarized. Five men, including Young's roommate have been charged with first degree homicide.

Police worked with the personnel at the landfill, a local excavating company and dog handlers to conduct the weeks long search. We're told tons of garbage was moved during this search.

The Milwaukee Police Department reports that their investigation has produced enough physical evidence to corroborate the charges issued by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office.
