    NC - Delvonte Tisdale-Missing NC teen found mutilated outside Boston

    I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere. A 16 year old teen went missing outside of Charlotte last week and his body was discovered 900 miles away in Milton,MA just outside of Boston. It was said he had massive trauma to his body.

    I have provided some links, this is a scary case.

    Our local newspaper just posted something that says they think he may have stowed away in the wheel wells of an airplane and fell out when they opened the doors upon approach for landing.

    Very very horrible situation, but may be a great explanation for how he made it so far so quickly. I feel horrible for the family, and for this kid if he was so desperate to get back "home" that he felt this was his best or only option.

    Well that certaintly would explain the trauma to the body. You would think that is would be fairly easy to tell if someone was placed there or if they fell 300+ feet, probably much more off of an airplane.

    Hopefully they are able to come to a conclusion for the families sake, and to put fears to rest that there is another killer on the loose.

    Massachusetts authorities identified the mutilated body found last week in Milton, Mass., as 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale, a North Mecklenburg High School student missing since last Sunday.

    Authorities used a fingerprint analysis to identify Delvonte, according to a news release from Norfolk District Attorney William Keating.
    He has been identified. Rest in Peace.

    oh my. How very awful for his family. Prayers for them.

    Poor young man, if he did indeed fall from a great height how frightened he must have been. I hope his passing was quick.

    The place where he was found is directly under the landing pattern for Logan Airport, so if he fell when the landing gear came down, they probably weren't very high up. And if he was trying to smuggle himself in the wheel well, he was likely still unconscious from lack of oxygen at the higher altitudes.

    I want to know how they arrived at the theory that he fell from a plane - seems awfully random as a cause of death. Several comments to the Charlotte Observer said that he would have been immediately compacted by the wheel's landing gear retracting upon takeoff, or would have died of hypothermia before he fell. Very, very weird case.

    The only thing I can think of is that his horrific injuries must have come from a fall from a great height. To cause such severe breaks to both arms and both legs, he had to have been moving fast. If there are no tall buildings around to have fallen from, a plane would be the next to investigate.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    No, he was found in a quiet residential street -- they are looking at a couple of vehicles also, to see whether it might have been a traffic accident. Initially they thought it might have been hit and run.

    Wonder what moment he realized what a terrible idea it was if he stowed away?

    He might not ever have known. The local expert who was on the TV news yesterday speculated that he would have passed out from lack of oxygen after only a few minutes -- temps in the wheel well were probably -40F -- so he wasn't conscious when he fell.

    Let me go see if they put that interview on line.

    eta: couldn't find the video, but here's an article that says the same thing: http://www.thebostonchannel.com/news...47/detail.html. I have to correct myself; the expert didn't say he would have died. I grew up where temps occasionally reach -40F and I concluded that on a flight of more than, say, 20 minutes, he would have died.

    Sources: Dead Teen Had Stowed Away On Plane

    <snip>

    Law enforcement sources are nearly certain Delvonte Tisdale stowed away on a plane and that is how he got from his home in North Carolina to Massachusetts.

    NewsCenter 5 has learned that the 16-year-old had industrial aviation grease on his pants.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
