New details in arrest of Upper Darby students

    The Associated Press reports details surrounding the arrest of a group of Upper Darby High School students have changed a bit.

    Contrary to initial reports, Upper Darby police confirm six students have been arrested and authorities are looking for a seventh suspect — all ages 13 to 17.

    The 13-year-old victim was kidnapped on his way home from school Jan. 11, dragged through the snow and hanged by his jacket on a 7-foot high fence post.
