2 min read

An arrest has been made in the November 5, 2018 kidnapping of an area teen.

According to sources, 34-year-old Michael Ray McLellan is the man responsible for the kidnapping of 13-year-old Hania Aguilar earlier this month.

Aguilar, who was getting ready to leave for school, was waiting on her family outside of their home in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park when she was forced into the family’s SUV shortly before 7 a.m.

A few days after she went missing, a witness came forward and told the FBI that they “saw a male subject dressed in all black and wearing a yellow bandanna force Hania into a relative’s vehicle that was parked in the driveway.”

Michael Ray McLellan, who has been in the custody of Robeson County Sheriff’s Office since November 13, was previously accused of kidnapping a woman outside of her home off Pittman Street, in Fairmont community, in Robeson County, according to the Fairmont Police Chief, Jon Edwards.

At the time of the unrelated incident, McLellan approached the woman wearing dark clothing with a mask on his face.

Sources tell The North Carolina Beat, that, while McLellan was in custody on the unrelated charge, he was interviewed by law enforcement officers and admitted to kidnapping, raping, and dumping Aguilar’s body near a pond on Wiregrass Road where he lived.

McLellan alleged confession is what sources say led police to the area around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, and upon their arrival, a body, believed to be that of 13-year-old Hania Aguilar, was discovered.

The North Carolina Beat spoke with McLellan’s mother, Carrie McLellan Tuesday night who confirmed that Michael lived with his father on Wiregrass Road in Lumberton, North Carolina.

Carrie said Michael was taken from her and given to his father when he was only 13-years-old and ever since, lived on Wiregrass Road.

Officials at Robeson County Sheriff’s Office said, McLellan, is in their custody under a $2 million bond on the charges of second-degree kidnapping and attempted armed robbery.

Detention officers at Robeson County Jail were told that they were not allowed to release information about McLellan charges or his connections to 13-year-old Hania Aguilar.

Officials have yet to release the identity of the body found Tuesday evening or a suspect in the case.

  1. This case reminds me of the unsolved murder of little 5 year Brittany Locklear, from Raeford, NC, who was also waiting on the school bus, and was stolen, only to be found several days later, raped,murdered, and thrown into a ditch, like a piece a garbage. Rest in peace little ones 🙁

      1. Her mom went in to go to bathroom when she got back outside her daughter was gone to this day it still bothers me. My husband and I said this was same thing that happened to Brittany 😭 There was other children out at bus stop with Brittany they told her mom when she got back outside a man took her

      2. Her mom went in to go to bathroom when she got back outside her daughter was gone to this day it still bothers me. My husband and I said this was same thing that happened to Brittany 😭 There was other children out at bus stop with Brittany they told her mom that a man took her

        1. That house was sittin back off the road there no way she was at that road because the house was off from the road .it was quit way off because I went to visit the family that baby was there by her self . There no way i let my went out there to that road unlesd i was there with her.dhe might stand on the porch but no way she walk back to her house o bathroom that fast .

      3. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ my daughter is 14 and I still walks with her to the bus stop with my 9mm, and my mom waits for her to get off the bus! So, a 5 year old at the bus stop alone bothers me

  2. This was posted BEFORE the press conference at 330 today (Thursday). The FBI said in conference that they do not have a suspect. How did this man confess and get arrested for Hania if they have no suspect???

    1. He was already arrested on unrelated charges. He was accused of committing another crime similar to this one so they questioned him when he was in custody and he admitted to the crime and told police where to find the body. That is how they found her body but they didn’t want to release this information to the public. Apparantly someone must have leaked the information any way. Read the article lol all this information was in the article.

  3. My brother Johnny Jones hit and run and was killed never found out who didn’t yet. But when judgement day come they will pay then and my mother was murder to went the court house in Lumberton talk to a judge or district attorney in 2003 but they don’t care so many people is murder kidnap ,robbers and drugs corruption , in the world not only in Robeson County or North Carolina or South Carolina Is all over the world .USA let everything come in the USA now people will have to pay for sin. Read the Bible found at yourself.

  4. If ,if,if as I say this mean old world would just come to a sudden hault and have a moment of silence just meditate stop,look,and listen at what’s going on we can make a better world ourselves starting with the Chief in the WhiteHousei.I think these people in jail are being treated better than the outsiders .They should have them cleaning these ditches, mowing these elders lawn raking and doing hard labor going back to the real chaingangwork. They don’t realize what it feels like to harm these little Angels. To God Be The Glory. I thought about the 5 year old also. My prayers are with you all.

  5. He was already arrested on unrelated charges. He was accused of committing another crime similar to this one so they questioned him when he was in custody and he admitted to the crime and told police where to find the body. That is how they found her body but they didn’t want to release this information to the public. Apparantly someone must have leaked the information any way. Read the article lol all this information was in the article.

  6. The whole time they have been holding back on information ok the shoes if those shoes was so distant why wasn’t they mentioned in the first time they gave the description of her and what she was wearing the same day these guy get arrested you don’t hear anything about the case but the next day you have dogs and drones in the same area you find Hania and all of a sudden the police find her. Two days before the laws supposed to be found her they posted a picture of her shoes saying they was looking for her shoes that who ever had taken her had her shoes. Ok if you hadn’t found that baby how did you know she didn’t have her shoes on smh stop with the bulls**t just be honest and stop telling people to stop spreading lies when your the one lieing and with holding information. In the article it states he is charged with second degree kidnappping 2 million dollar bond if he left the woman UMHARAMES why is he charged with second degree why ain’t it just kidnapping. Look up what second degree consist of rape holding a person against their will kidnapping is just holding them against their will and not harming them. You got to read between the lines smh. Just focus on taking these killer down.

  7. Why did mom let her go out in first place? Sources say she started the car at 13?/is that true?
    If this guy did it give him the highest punishment ever. Whatever held back from the public there is reason for that. Got him get rid of him.
