Beal was picked up in Marrero, Louisiana by U.S. Marshals at approximately 6:45 am Wednesday. U.S. Marshals said he was picked up on the 800 Block of Avenue F. Marrero is a suburb of New Orleans.
The arrest was related to Sunday's discovery of human remains. State Police identified the remains as missing Somerset County teen Justine Jackson. Jackson was last seen in September near Meyersdale. Authorities confirm Jackson was strangled, then buried in a shallow grave near a hiking trail.
A criminal complaint states Beal made numerous statements to people that he killed and buried Jackson near the trail. It also states that he has a violent history toward women. The relationship between Beal and the victim was not released, but family members said Justine told them she was pregnant with his child.
