Investigators continue to search an Indiana landfill for missing Sullivan University student Andrew Compton, who disappeared nearly two weeks ago.

Gregory M. O'Bryan, 40, has been charged with Compton's murder. According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, O'Bryan and Compton met through an online dating service:

O'Bryan said he'd picked up Compton at Sullivan's Gardiner Point Residence Hall, bought alcohol and had sex with him at his apartment before Compton left, according to O'Bryan's arrest citation.

But when police questioned O'Bryan a second time, he allegedly admitted that Compton died while they were having sex, according to the arrest report. He said he then had sex with the corpse.

O'Bryan also told police he dumped the body in a garbage bin near his apartment, said Lt. Vince Robison, an assistant police chief.

The Associated Press reports that O'Bryan initially told investigators that Compton left his residence after their sexual encounter.

Investigators have narrowed their search to a south Indiana landfill. O'Bryan is being held on $1 million bond.
