Johnsonburg Man Jailed for Killing Teenager

A Johnsonburg man has been charged with criminal homicide for killing a teenager in the borough.

22-year-old Nicholas Martin is accused of killing 18-year-old Alyssa Forsyth in Johnsonburg, but police actually found the body in Ridgway.

Police say a tip led them to Forsyth’s body.

Besides criminal homicide, Martin is charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault, as well as abuse of a corpse.

He is in Elk County Jail without bail. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for April 3 in front of District Judge Tony King.
