Boyfriend Of A Missing Teen Is Person Of Interest In Her Death And Deaths Of Her Mother, Sister
A missing teenager from the Houston area was found dead on Thursday and authorities believed that her boyfriend was responsible for the teen's deaths, as well as of her mother and her sister. The boyfriend was arrested by police officials and the missing teenager's body was found close to where he was apprehended.
New York Daily News reported that the missing teenager was identified as 16-year-old Kirsten Fritch. The boyfriend was identified as Jesse Dobbs, 21 years old. Dobbs was arrested on Wednesday and the body of Fritch was discovered near. It was believed that Dobbs was hiding information about the death of Fritch, as well as the death of her mother, identified as Cynthia Morris, and her younger sister, identified as Breanna Pavilicek.
Baytown police said in a statement that Dobbs did not provide them information about the death of Fritch, as well as her mother and her sister. They also said that they struggled to detain Dobbs because he refused to go with arresting officials. He was at Shenanigan's Bar at the time of the arrest.
The bar is located near Texas City. Dobbs is only identified as a person if interest and not a suspect.
Officials said that they have notified the relatives and loved ones of Fritch regarding her body's discovery. They did not provide any other details on the condition of the body when it was found and what the probable cause of death was.
Officers were also able to locate the missing PT Cruiser that belonged to Morris. The mother of Morris was the one who asked officials to check on the welfare of Morris and Pavilicek, noting that she could not contact them. When officials went to check on them, the door in their home was unlocked and the two victims each died from at least one gunshot wounds.
According to sources, Fritch started to date Dobbs after they met online. Dobbs eventually moved in with the family. People reported that Dobbs has a former girlfriend, who is the mother of his children. The said woman reportedly hopes the family gets justice.
