A seventeen year old boy is dead and police believe he was lured and killed by one of his teenage friends. The deceased has been identified as Teakettle resident Ernest Wiltshire who was reported missing last Tuesday.
He was last seen alive by his mother at around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 28 when he went to a nearby river with his friends. Shortly after midday on Friday he was found about a mile behind Teakettle Village through the Arizona Road dead with a large chop wound to his head. He was already in a state of advanced decomposition.
According to police reports a post-mortem examination conducted on his body certified the cause of his death was “Craneoucednalic traumatic injuries” due to the multiple chop wounds to the head.
Wiltshire’s family told the media that they don’t know why anyone would want Wiltshire dead as he was not a troublesome person. His family believes that he was killed because of jealousy. They recalled that the deceased had previously told some friends that there was a young man that told him he, Wiltshire, should die. However, Wiltshire never took that threat seriously or even made a police report.
Police have charged his friend from Teakettle, Shemar Santos, 18, in connection with his murder.
