PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — A 26-year-old man was held Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree murder and sexual battery after his father found a woman's body in his closet, authorities said.
Jason Shenfeld's parents noticed their son seemed nervous and was locking his bedroom door. When his father went into Shenfeld's room on Friday night, he found 18-year-old Amanda Buckley's body stuffed in his closet, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report.

Shenfeld told his father the teen had overdosed on drugs and he panicked, the report said.
However, investigators say they found duct tape in Buckley's hair, bruises on her body and evidence of rape, according to the report.
An autopsy revealed the girl was strangled, beaten and sexually abused.
