Missing NC teen's body found mutilated in Massachusetts


MILTON, MA (AP) -- Authorities have confirmed that the mutilated body of a young man found dead on a suburban Boston street is that of a missing North Carolina teenager.

Norfolk District Attorney William Keating said in a statement Sunday that fingerprint analysis has confirmed that the body found Nov. 15 in Milton is 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale of Charlotte.

Massachusetts state police detectives and officers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg County police matched the body's fingerprints with a print found on one of Tisdale's personal items.

Authorities have not released additional details on how Tisdale died or what he was doing in the Boston area. Officials had previously said the body suffered "massive trauma." The death remains under investigation.

I read on another website

I read on another website that they think he may have fallen from a plane. This is such a gruesome and sad story. I hope this boys' family finds peace and that whoever is responsible is found and brought to justice.

Missing NC teen's body found

Another TV's web site reported that "Folks living near where his remains were found say they were scattered over several properties." I can't help but think how Zahra Baker's (the little Hickory girl) body was also scattered in severa areas, Could it be that whoever killed her killed this young man to throw investigators "off track"?
