A teenage love story with a tragic ending. A 21-year-old man may be connected with the disappearance of his teenage girlfriend and the murder of her family.
According to Inside Edition, Kirsten Nicole Fritch, 16, has been missing since last Tuesday in Baytown, Texas. Police found her mother, Cynthia Morris, and her 13-year-old sister, Breanna Pavilicek, shot and killed inside their home. Investigators are concerned about Fritch's whereabouts and think that her boyfriend Jesse Dobbs may have something to do with the crime.
“Detectives are considering Mr. Dobbs a person of interest at this time and are concerned about the welfare of the 16-year-old,” police said.
Dobbs started dating the teenager after they met online, according to Fritch's grandmother Barbara DeRamus. "He just seemed like a lowlife," she said, per KHOU. "I thought what was Kirsten doing with this idiot." DeRamus is sure that Dobbs is behind the brutal murders. "I believe he murdered my daughter and my innocent 13-year-old granddaughter. I hope he rots in hell."
Police have not officially charged Dobbs with the murders. He was arrested Wednesday and is being held in Texas City jail on charges of resisting arrest.
There is currently an Amber Alert out for Fritch. She is a white female; five foot one and 135 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.
