Authorities received a tip Thursday that the 16-year-old suspect could be linked to the death.

The boy has not been identified, and authorities said a murder weapon has not yet been recovered. "The suspect joined the father in searching for the victim, and it was the suspect who found the body, and he then called the dad and said, 'Hey, he's over here.' So it's kind of unusual". Cops became dubious of the now-suspect after conducting interviews with Jeremy's friends and family. Corina said investigators aren't sure if there was an argument or problem with their friendship that led the 16-year-old to allegedly kill Sanchez. "It is nearly like he was trying to throw everyone off". He was a beloved, natural leader on our campus and his death is nothing short of devastating, ' the school wrote.

Briana Amigon, Sanchez's cousin, set up by a GoFundMe page to help cover his funeral expenses. He said he thinks Sanchez was killed early Wednesday morning. He was on the varsity football team and also on the wrestling team.

A 17-year-old who investigators say was fatally stabbed by his teenage friend is being remembered as a gregarious high school sports star who loved to joke with friends.

Sanchez's varsity football coach, Frank Gallardo, told Los Angeles Times that "was a little guy", at just 5 feet 6 or 5 feet 7, weighing about 130 pounds.
