An 18-year-old male was found dead outside of his apartment building last Tuesday, according to People Magazine.
Dwight Grant was missing for a few days prior to his body being found. After a few days of investigation. three teenagers were arrested on suspicion of the crime. Those arrested consisted of a 17-year-old male, a 17-year-old female, and a 16-year-old female. Their names have not been released.
The report states that this was a crime fueled by jealousy, as Grant allegedly had a relationship with the ex-girlfriend of the male suspect. The suspects stabbed Grant multiple times and was badly beaten.
People Magazine reports that police “charged them with murder in the first degree, tampering with evidence and criminal conspiracy.”
Condolences were sent out from Grant’s high school on the school’s Twitter.
