Florida Teen Allegedly Strangled His Mom Over Bad Grade: 'A Soulless Individual'

Florida Teen Allegedly Strangled His Mom Over Bad Grade: 'A Soulless Individual'

Early Friday, the teen put his mother's body in a wheelbarrow in order to load her into a van, which he drove to River City Church, approximately one mile from the home, police said.

Ramos ultimately told detectives that he got two friends to help him stage the burglary - 17-year-olds Dylan Ceglarek and Brian Porras, who police say are also facing multiple criminal charges.

Deputies with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Gregory Logan Ramos confessed to the crime after originally trying to trick investigators into thinking his home had been burglarized while he was in school.

A 15-year-old Florida boy accused of killing his mother and enlisting his friends to help hide her body was still in custody Monday morning.

Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said the boy killed his mom during a fight over a "D" he had received in school, but the boy, Chitwood said, expressed no remorse for the killing.

Chitwood said investigators spent hours talking with the teen, as he told them his mother was killed in a burglary.

The father was on a business trip in Seattle, WA, during the incident.

"Then got home and made in his words a call to 911 to talk about this frightful incident that did not really occur", Chitwood added.

Authorities found the door to the house kicked down, the house ransacked and Cleavenger's truck running in the driveway after the teen reported the burglary to police on Friday afternoon.

"He went to school, left school early, which is where his story began to fall apart", Chitwood said. "By all accounts she was an incredible human being", Chitwood said.

Chitwood said Ramos allegedly believed his mother was dead and went to get a wheel barrow to retrieve her body, but when he returned he noticed she was still alive and strangled her again.

Chitwood added that this was "one of the most disturbing and saddest I've seen in my career".

A judge on Sunday ordered a 15-year-old DeBary teenager, whom authorities said confessed to strangling his mother, to remain in juvenile detention until the next hearing in the case, according to a local state attorney's office.
