Chelsea teen has bond revoked after being named a murder suspect

Posted: Updated:
SHELBY COUNTY, AL -

A Chelsea teen had his bond revoked earlier this week after becoming a suspect in a murder investigation.

Court documents filed Monday say the teen was the last known person to see a suspected murder victim alive on or about March 6. The document says he told his father March 10 that he had "messed up." He said the victim had been shot, and that he "helped get rid of him."

The unnamed teen's bond was revoked because committing new criminal offenses would be a violation of his bail on second-degree burglary and third-degree criminal mischief charges. He had been released from jail Jan. 25 on $5,500 bail.

The name of the teen is being withheld until criminal charges are filed.  

Meanwhile, law enforcement officials are not confirming if this case is the murder case of Shelby County teenager Cameron McGlothan.

Family and friends of Cameron McGlothan want justice for the murdered teen after he disappeared and his was body found fatally shot in Talladega County.

"To just come up missing and end up dead like that. I mean everybody has their ways, but nobody deserves it, especially not Cameron," said Lyndsey Steele, a friend of Cameron's.

 The 19-year-old's friends describe him as a person who would light up a room with his humor.

"He was very funny. Like he always had us laughing whenever he would come to work with his stories," said Brechey White, another friend of Cameron's.

The Talladega County Sheriff's Office is leading the homicide investigation.

Chief Deputy Jimmy Kilgore and the District Attorney, Steven Giddens didn't provide any further information Friday after several attempts.

Those closest to Cameron are now grappling with why someone would want to hurt him.

"It makes anybody wonder who would have the heart to just do that to somebody, who was just such as sociable person," Steele said.

 As friends, family, and strangers leave messages of condolences for the McGlothan family on a Facebook memorial page for the young man, Cameron's friends urge the person(s) responsible or anyone who may know something to step forward.

"Hopefully they you know their conscience is really beating them up and they come out and they confess," White said.

"If it was somebody that you knew you would want somebody to come forward with any information that had about it," Steele said.
