Authorities in Ohio said they have arrested a 15-year-old boy they claim is responsible for the shooting death of a girl described as a “habitual runaway.”

On Jan. 5, the parents of DeAsia Green contacted authorities to report her missing after they grew concerned, the Toledo Police Department told WTVG.

The parents, police said, received information about their daughter, which helped officers locate Green’s body in an alleyway on Jan. 9.

“I drove around, I drove around here, searching, and just so happened. The police were actually doing their job. They were doing their job. And that’s how I found her,” the victim’s mother, Teairia Autman, told WTVG.

The teenager, who Autman said she last saw on Dec. 31, had been shot in the head, according to the station.


The juvenile boy accused of killing Green was arrested on Jan. 13 and has been charged with murder and felonious assault.

“My baby doesn’t deserve to be in an alley,” said the victim’s stepfather, Andre Autman. “We just want justice for her.”

According to investigators, in 2010, when Green was 3 years old, her father, DeAndre Green, was fatally shot inside his car. The case remains unsolved.
