Police say the California teen who helped find his missing friend may have actually been his killer.
The unnamed 16 year old male suspect was arrested on Thursday in connection with the murder of 17-year-old Jeremy Sanchez. Authorities say the duo were close friends and may have been romantically involved. But when Sanchez decided to end the relationship, officials believe the suspect fatally stabbed him out of vengeance.
“Once we talked to that young man, we searched his home and came up with some evidence and some statements that lead us to end up arresting him and booking him for the murder,” said Lt. John Corina of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Sanchez was a student at South El Monte High School. His father reported him missing after learning the teen failed to show up at school Wednesday morning. A search team made up of family members and friends discovered his body along the San Gabriel River around 4:00 p.m. the same day.
Police have yet to recover a murder weapon, but don’t believe there are any additional persons involved in Sanchez’s death.
The suspect will be arraigned on Monday.
