Authorities are trying to determine whether a mutilated body found on a quiet residential street in an upscale Boston suburb is that of a missing North Carolina teenager, MyFoxBoston.com reports.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police spokesman Robert Fey said Friday that detectives are working with police in Milton, Mass., to verify whether the victim is 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale, according to the station.
The North Mecklenburg High School student was reportedly last seen in Charlotte, N.C., on Sunday. A missing person report was filed Monday, the same day the unidentified body was found in Milton.
The victim was not carrying identification.
Milton police began to investigate the link after a call from North Carolina authorities. Police have reportedly found what may be one of the two cars witnesses saw in the area before the body was discovered.
