2 Texas Teens Arrested While Burying Slain 17-Year-Old Boy
Police in Wylie, Texas, wanted to know what two teenagers were doing in the woods Saturday night.
“We are burying a body,” one of them said.
They weren’t kidding. When police looked in the woods northeast of Dallas they found the corpse of 17-year-old Ivan Mejia of Wylie. The two 16-year-olds were charged with murder.
Police first became interested when they checked out a suspicious, unoccupied vehicle backed up to the treeline, according to a department statement. Officers went into the woods and saw two suspects running from the area.
Police returned to the car and the 16-year-olds walked up and answered the question that set off bells, the statement said.
