DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
A Texas teenager has been arrested after authorities say they found him driving through Nebraska with his mother’s body in the trunk of his car.
Michelle Roenz and her son Tyler Roenz, 17, were reported missing on Thursday. According to documents obtained by ABC-13, Tyler’s father contacted police after he found blood and a human tooth in the garage of their home in Humble, Texas.
Tyler’s father then followed a trail of blood into the primary bedroom, where he allegedly found four additional human teeth in a pool of blood.
Surveillance footage allegedly shows the family’s Mazda 3 leaving the house at 11:44 a.m. on Thursday.
According to court documents obtained by Click2Houston.com, Michelle Roenz’s credit card was used in Texas and Kansas, allegedly en route to Nebraska. The car’s license plate was also pinged on the radar near Dallas, Texas.
Based on the evidence, authorities figured out that the car was likely heading northbound. They alerted authorities in Nebraska to be on the lookout for the Mazda. When the Nebraska Highway Patrol spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop it, the driver allegedly fled.
After an ensuing car chase that reached 110 mph, the vehicle crashed into a semi-truck and a ditch. Authorities say that Tyler Roenz was behind the wheel and hospitalized in serious condition.
Michelle Roenz’s body was found in the trunk of the car. According to court documents, a preliminary investigation determined that she died of blunt force trauma and strangulation.
PEOPLE confirms that authorities have charged Tyler Roenz with unauthorized vehicle use. According to the Houston Chronicle, sources say that additional charges may follow.
