WYLIE, Texas — Ask a simple question.

Police in Wylie, Texas, wanted to know what two teenagers were doing in the woods Saturday night.

“We are burying a body,” one of them said.

They weren’t kidding. When police looked in the woods they found the corpse of 17-year-old Ivan Mejia of Wylie. The two 16-year-olds were charged with murder.

Police first became interested when they checked out a suspicious, unoccupied vehicle backed up to the treeline, according to a department statement. Officers went into the woods and saw two suspects running from the area.

Police returned to the car and the 16-year-olds walked up and answered the question that set off bells, the statement said.

Mejia was killed behind Wylie East High School, where all three teenagers were students, and taken to the wooded area, police said. No motive has been released, but police say the killing was planned.

    It sounds like Ivan was hanging out with them – not enough time had gone by for the parents to become concerned, probably because he was 17 years old. They must have put him in the trunk immediately and drove to the woods.

    I agree with Valerie, that they probably would have killed again and again…

    Prayers for Ivan’s family.
