According to law enforcement, a teenaged boy in Florida has been arrested for beating another teenager to death over a girl.

Diaz would not come out of the woods alive. His body was found on Monday; he had suffered blunt force trauma.

According to text messages obtained by law enforcement and local media, Murray asked Diaz to join him in the woods in order to smoke marijuana. Investigators also state that Murray claimed he just wanted to “play” with Diaz. Diaz agreed to hang out with Murray, so the two spent time together in the wooded area. While the two young men were in the woods together, Diaz brought up a young woman with whom he had been involved romantically.source

Murray ended up learning that Diaz had “relations” with a girl that Murray had once liked and who had spurned his advances. As a result, Murray was angry and jealous. Judd said that Murray believed himself to be “in love” with the young woman—who actually did not like him at all.

Murray allegedly became so outraged as a result of the topic coming up that he started to hit Diaz with an aluminum bat. According to the sheriff, the force of the blows were quite severe—so much so that the tee-ball bat was actually dented and also covered with blood. Diaz was hit at least nine times in the head and face.

The teen was charged with one count of possessing marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia—as well as one count of first-degree murder.

Family set up a GoFundMe account to help out with expenses.
