Two Soldiers Charged With Teen’s Slaying

SPRING LAKE, N.C., Aug. 19 (UPI) — Two soldiers were charged with murder and disposing of a corpse in the death of a Spring Lake, N.C., teen, whose body was found in a wooded area, police said.

Deputies from Harnett and Cumberland counties found the body of Vincent Carlisle Jr., 17, Thursday in the woods four days after he left home and did not return, WRAL-TV, Raleigh, reported Friday.

Suspects Christopher Roger Blackett and Sebastian Gamez, both based at Fort Bragg, were held Friday without bond at the Harnett County Detention Center, police said.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said an autopsy would be performed on Carlisle.

Melanie Stewart, principal of Johnathan’s House Christian School in Fuquay-Varina, said Carlisle transferred there after attending Overhills High in Spring Lake, where he was subjected to pressure from other students, WRAL said.

“The way he explained it to me … [was] that it wasn’t cool to do good in school,” she said.

Carlisle was looking forward to attending high school, graduating and moving forward, Stewart said.

“It’s important to me that people know that Vincent Carlisle was a very intelligent young man, and he had dreams and he had plans,” she said.
