Teenager charged with strangling, burying mother

Florida Teenager Charged With Strangling, Burying Mother

The teenager appeared in juvenile court on Sunday along with two 17-year-old co-defendants who were charged as accessories after the fact to first-degree premeditated murder.

Authorities said Gregory Ramos admitted to killing his mother, Gail Cleavenger, then burying her body and staging a burglary before calling 911.

Ramos is accused of strangling his mother Thursday night after she confronted him about a D he received in one of his classes.

He also implicated two friends, who he said helped him bury his mother and stage a burglary at his home.

Dawn Marie, a family friend, told Inside Edition Ramos is "not the monster they say he is", adding, "he was brought up in a loving home by loving parents".

The next morning, Ramos went to school and called police after he came home that afternoon to report that his mom was missing, the house had been ransacked and her van was still running in the driveway. The father was in Seattle on business.

Chitwood says he faces murder charges. That's when authorities said he proceeded to strangle her again, this time killing her.

Detectives ultimately found Cleavenger's body in her burial site at River City Church in the early-morning hours Saturday. He told the Daytona Beach News-Journal he agreed with the judge's decision that probable cause existed to detain his client on a murder charge.

"Then got home and made in his words a call to 911 to talk about this awful incident that did not really occur", Chitwood added.

"He went to school, left school early, which is where his story began to fall apart", Chitwood said. But rather than expressing guilt or remorse, Chitwood said he seemed proud.

The mother's body was located at the fire pit at River City Church by police on Saturday morning after the teen confessed, the press release stated.

The sheriff said the case has been one of the most disturbing and saddest he has encountered. I have a feeling this is a case we'll be hearing about for years. Chitwood said Ramos used his knowledge of crime scene analysis to disguise the scene where he had buried his mother's body.
