Missing Texas teen found dead, boyfriend suspected of killing her and 2 relatives

- Searchers found the body of a missing Houston-area 16-year-old Thursday afternoon not far from the bar where her boyfriend was arrested days earlier.

The Baytown Police Department said a volunteer on an ATV discovered the remains of Kirsten Fritch in a wooded area just north of the Shenanigan's bar in Texas City.

Fritch's boyfriend, 21-year-old Jesse Dobbs, had been arrested by police Tuesday night after he walked into the bar barefoot and requested a glass of water.

Authorities had issued an Amber Alert for Fritch after her mother, 37-year-old Cynthia Morris, and Morris' 13-year-old daughter Breanna Pavlicek were found shot to death in their Baytown home Monday morning.

Dobbs was initially charged with resisting arrest. However, Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steven Dorris said murder charges would likely be brought against him in Fritch's death.
