Florida Teenager Charged With Strangling, Burying Mother

Florida Teenager Charged With Strangling, Burying Mother”

After killing her, authorities say Ramos called two school friends, who allegedly helped him bury his mom, Gail Cleavenger, in a fire pit near a church.

Chitwood said Ramos confessed to murdering his mother all over a fight about his bad grades.

Jacques argued that the two need to be held in secure detention because they will no longer be under their parents supervision once they both turn 18 years old in December.

But Chitwood said detectives suspected the story from the start and brought Ramos in for questioning.

The trio kicked in a door and removed items such as a computer, rifle and Playstation, before driving to a nearby church where they buried Gail's body underneath a fire pit.

Deputies with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Gregory Logan Ramos confessed to the crime after originally trying to trick investigators into thinking his home had been burglarized while he was in school. "No sign of remorse whatsoever".

Two 17-year-olds who Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said helped the boy hide the crime were released Sunday into home detention, where they'll wear ankle monitors.

"He believed he was the smartest person in the room and he continued to tell us his theories of what he believed and why: what happened to his mom and where we should be focusing our attention", Chitwood said. "I have a feeling this is a case we'll be hearing about for years to come".

The attack took place early Friday morning after Cleavenger called her husband - the boy's stepfather - who was on a business trip in Washington State, and informed him about her son's D grade and the subsequent argument, according to police. All our hearts break for this family.

Authorities said Ramos wasn't emotional in his confession.

Ramos is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in the death of his mother, Gail Cleavenger, 46, at their home at 35 Alicante Road.

None of the defendants entered any pleas and it wasn't immediately clear if they would be tried as adults. He elaborated that he'd thought he had killed her early Friday morning and went outside to grab a wheelbarrow but saw she was still alive when he returned.
