Mifflinburg Man will be Sentenced for Lying About Child Disappearance

Sentencing Next for Man Named in Corey Edkin Case


LEWISBURG – NorthcentralPA.com is reporting… A Mifflinburg man who was charged with obstruction for lying to police about the disappearance of 2-year-old Corey Edkin will be sentenced in March after he pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge.


55-year-old Henry Bush, entered the plea on Jan. 18 during a pre-trial conference with Union County Judge Michael Piecuch. A no contest plea means the defendant does not admit guilt but accepts that he may be found guilty by the court and can be sentenced. Bush’s sentencing in front of Piecuch is set for 8:30 a.m. March 14.


Bush had been a focus in the investigation since Edkin went missing from his New Columbia home on Oct. 13, 1986. State police at Milton filed the charge against Bush in August after a state grand jury recommended he be charged with misdemeanor obstruction of administration of law or other government services.
