Police received a call around 9:30 that night about a suspicious vehicle near Highway 78. Upon arrival, they spotted an unoccupied vehicle matching the call description, just sitting there all suspicious-like. The officers headed off into a wooded area near where the car was sitting to investigate and saw the two 16-year-old boys hightailing it out of the woods. Assuming the kids were heading for the car, the officers headed back up to the vehicle and waited.
When the boys approached the car, one of the officers asked what they were up to. That was when the dumber half of the stupid pair opened his mouth.
Officers detained the boys and called for backup. A search of the area led to the discovery of a very dead teen boy — police have identified him as 17-year-old Ivan Mejia.
Police say all three teens attended the same school, Wylie East High School, and have reason to believe the alleged murder occurred behind the school.
Investigators have yet to disclose a motive or the manner in which Mejia was killed.
Both teens are being held at Collin County Juvenile Detention Facility.Tags: Ivan Mejia, Kids Who Kill, Murder, Texas, Wylie
