Teen wanted in Fla. after grandmother found dead caught at Canadian border

Teen wanted in Fla. after grandmother found dead caught at Canadian border

The boy was detained Friday night after he made a U-turn in a 2015 Dodge Dart on the Peace Bridge in Buffalo, New York, said Aaron Bowker, a spokesman for the Buffalo field office of US Customs and Border Protection. The boy was believed to have taken a week's supply of medicine, and also stolen his grandmother's vehicle and driven hundreds of miles north to Pennsylvania, where a surveillance camera had spotted him the previous day.

"Logan Mott, 15 years old, is wanted for auto theft and is a person of interest in the death of Kristina French, his grandmother", the post said.

A body believed to be of Logan's 53-year-old grandmother, Kristina French, was found by police on Friday in a shallow grave.

Just as Campbell-Mott could not have imagined French hurting her son, she also could not believe that Logan would harm or intentionally kill his grandmother.

Logan Mott's mother, Carrie Campbell-Mott, told First Coast News that the boy has had some has had trouble adjusting in recent months after transferring away from his friends at Fletcher Middle School and entering Sandalwood High School.

"We are relieved he is safe and in custody and we just ask for everyone to give us time to sort out what happened".




Mott was in the care of his grandmother, while his father - a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office corrections officer- was on vacation with his girlfriend, reported the Florida Times Union.

Authorities emphasized Mott is only a person of interest in the case - not a suspect - and they're looking to "talk to him about what happened at the house".

"We have no idea", she wrote on Facebook after the news conference, as reported by Action News Jax. "Logan is our child and we love him and are standing by him to help in any way". When they didn't show up, the couple took an Uber back to their Neptune Beach home to find it ransacked with the door open and guns missing from a gun safe, CBS affiliate WJAX reports.

She said a Jacksonville detective will fly to meet Logan on Saturday.

Authorities have yet to say what may have led to the teen's possible involvement, directly or indirectly with his grandmother death and whether there had been prior episodes between grandmother and grandson?
