Missing 15-year-old Sanaa Amenhotep was found dead in a wooded area in South Carolina Thursday morning.
Richland County police arrested one suspect, and the other is still on the loose. Investigators believe Amenhotep left with the two suspects voluntarily, and that things turned sour. They believe the suspects held her against her will and murdered her.
According to WLTX, Amenhotep left her home April 5. Her mother reported her missing, and officers had a bad feeling a few days later. She was then discovered off Interstate 20. The suspect in custody is a juvenile and has been charged with kidnapping. The second suspect, Treveon Nelson, will also face charges of kidnapping and murder.
Sheriff Leon Lott believes there is gang-related activity in the case, according to WIS News.
