Three Florida Teens Charged With Murder After Stabbing 18-Year-Old Classmate With Sword and Hiding His Body in Bushes

A trio of teenagers were arrested on suspicion of murder in Florida after an 18-year-old high school student was found dead.

Dwight “DJ” Grant was missing for multiple days before his body was found last Tuesday in bushes by his apartment building, according to the Associated Press. Later that week, police arrested three teens in connection to the death — a 17-year-old boy and girl, plus a 16-year-old girl — and charged them with murder in the first degree, tampering with evidence and criminal conspiracy, the outlet reported.

Last Tuesday, Miramar High School principal Maria Formoso tweeted, “May our forever Patriot Rest In Peace. Please pray for Dwight Grant’s family, friends and our community. I spoke with Ms. Grant to offer our condolences on behalf of the Patriot family. We will have grief counselors available on Thursday & Friday. We are here for you.”

Police told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Sunday that part of the security cameras in the area “captured certain aspects of the crime,” which helped in the investigation.
