NBC reported that D'Amico and McClure turned themselves in to authorities Wednesday, but Bobbitt's whereabouts were unknown.

Net proceeds for Ms McClure and Mr D'Amico amounted to more than $367,000 (£287,000) and was spent on a auto, holidays, high-end handbags and casino gambling.

But prosecutor Scott Coffina was not done. In any case, Bobbitt may have a hard time spending it, because as of November 15, he sits in jail with conspiracy and theft by deception charges against him. A message was left with a previous attorney of Bobbitt's.

This development comes after the couple and Bobbitt embarked on a legal battle after the ex-Marine said the couple did not give him all the money from the GoFundMe campaign made to benefit him. "I wasn't expecting anything in return", Bobbitt, 34, told "Good Morning America".

Bobbitt's lawyer says he has been told the money is gone.

The couple bought a BMW, took a New Year's trip to Las Vegas and bought high-end handbags, among other items.

"Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn't repay him at that moment because I didn't have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks", McClure explained in her initial GoFundMe post.

The Burlington County Prosecutor's office is expected to make an announcement in the case Thursday, according to multiple reports.

"During one text exchange in March 2018, McClure lamented that the pair had less than $10,000 remaining", said Coffina.

Investigators said the three deliberately prevented donors from gaining information "that would affect their judgment about solicited contribution to that fundraising effort", according to the news station.

It found McClure and D'Amico had conspired with Bobbitt to concoct an elaborate ruse to con unsuspecting donors moved by their fictional feel-good story, according to a complaint obtained by NBC Philadelphia. Their attorney said they have no comment.

GoFundMe released a statement saying all donors who contributed to the campaign will be refunded in the coming days.

Burlington County prosecutors outlined the allegations against Mark D'Amico, Katelyn McClure and Johnny Bobbitt on Thursday.

Instead D'Amico pitched a title that would encompass the controversy: No Good Deed.

The feel-good tale suffered its first upset when Bobbitt claimed that the couple used the GoFundMe money as a "personal piggy bank", and sued the couple in August for mismanaging his money. "We are fully cooperating and assisting law enforcement officials to recover every dollar withdrawn by Ms. McClure and Mr. D'Amico".
