Local Teen Killed

From the AJC:

The teen whose body was found in a Clarkston trash bin apparently was choked to death by her boyfriend, Clarkston Police Chief Tony Scipio said Friday.

Scipio said Shannon Cade, 17, has been charged with murdering Britney Wells, also 17, in his apartment on Smith Street. The Clarkston High student’s body was found in the bin outside Cade’s apartment early Thursday.

Police believe Wells went to Cade’s apartment voluntarily but then was held against her will, Scipio said.

Cade remained jailed without bond Friday. A 14-year-old, whose name was withheld because of his age, has been charged with concealing Wells’ death.
This tragedy hits us especially hard because Clarkston is right in our back yard. We have made ourselves available to Clarkston High School to speak with the students and faculty, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the Wells family for this horrible loss.
