This is a guest article from our good friend, T.J.Hart from TheSky97.3 out of Gainesville, Florida.

When I read this story, I was heartbroken. What made a group of teens along with a young girl, so determined to kill someone else? Making matters worst the boy they killed was only 15 years old. What could this boy have done that was so bad that triggered this group off to go as far as plan something as violent as this? I do pray for the family of young Seath Jackson. I am sure they will have more questions about why this happened. I pray they get their answers and the ones responsible for his death pays dearly. – Jan Barrett

Here is TJ’s story:

A group of older teens and an ex-girlfriend lured a 15-year-old boy to a Florida house, where they carried out a plan by beating him, shooting him dead and burning his body, police said.

Marion County Sherriff’s investigators made six arrests Tuesday night in connection with death of 15-year old Seath Jackson of Summerfield.

Jackson was reported missing Monday by his mother.

According to Marion county Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jennifer Lowe, on Tuesday, a woman told deputies her 16-year-old son had witnessed Jackson’s murder. The teen, who has been charged with murder, told detectives how the group plotted and carried out the crime.

Investigators also arrested a 15-year-old girl, 18-year-old Charlie Kay Ely, 18-year-old Michael Shane Bargo, 20-year-old Justin Solo and 37-year-old James Young Havens III. Havens is the step-father of the 15-year-old and the boy who talked to investigators.

Lowe told the SKY Havens assisted the young people with hiding the remains and also drove the shooter to Starke to allude authorities.
