By Roger Weeder First Coast News MIDDLEBURG, FL -- A teenage bride and her friend have been found shot to death in a home in Middleburg. The victims have been identified as Chelsea Rohn, 16, and Matthew Brumbaugh, 21. Rohn married last September, but recently separated from her husband. "Matt and Chelsea were my two best friends in the entire world," said Micah Rohn. Chelsea's husband told First Coast News they separated to figure out what was going on. "I knew her forever," Micah said. Investigators say the teenager lived with Brumbaugh at the home on Jean Court. "They were simply roommates sharing this home," said Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler. A third roommate discovered the bodies when he came home from work. The roommate, who did not reveal his name, told investigators he found the front door unlocked. Sheriff Beseler says leads are being generated but investigators do not have any suspects at the moment. Beseler says he's not ready to discuss a motive either in the double murder. "If anyone at all knows anything, just call," said Micah Rohn. "Someone please, please please." Call our partner First Coast Crime Stoppers if you have information that could lead to an arrest. You'll remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward up to $1000. The Middleburg murders are the fourth and fifth homicides of the year in Clay County. The county had six in all of last year.
