  • Florida Teenager Charged With Strangling, Burying Mother

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

"Apparently there was a dispute about [grading] marks with his mother, and after an argument that occurred around 11 o'clock, around 12:30 he went into her room and woke her up and began to strangle her until he killed her", he said.

Ramos confessed to using a wheelbarrow to move Gail's body into the family van and then drove to River City Church 1.5 miles away where he buried her in a fire pit.

He and his cronies are then accused of ransacking his home to make it look like it had been burgled, with Ramos abducted, before going to buy drinks.

In his police confession, Ramos told how he had argued with his mother on Thursday evening after getting a D grade at school.

"There was no sign of remorse whatsoever".

Chitwood said Ramos is one of the "top three sociopaths" he has ever encountered. Ramos was a member of the Orange City Police Explorers and took criminal justice classes in which he studied crime scenes, reported the Orlando Sentinel.

Volusia County sheriff's detectives are investigating the suspicious disappearance of a DeBary woman who went missing Friday and is considered endangered.


On Sunday, a judge ordered Ramos to remain in juvenile detention for the next 21 days until a further court order, WFTV reported.

Gregory Ramos of Volusia County is charged with the murder of his mother, Gail Cleavenger.

"The case we worked on tonight was one of the most disturbing and saddest I've seen in my career", Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said in the statement.

Sgt. A.J. Pagliari, with the Sheriff's Major Case Unit, said at a press conference that the teen confessed to the crime after his two friends came clean, which led to them being charged with accessory to first-degree murder.

Assistant State Attorney Tammy Jacques said after the hearing that prosecutors are working on whether Ramos will be charged as an adult.

The two 17-year-old friends face multiple charges.

Sheriff's officials said Ramos enlisted the help of two friends to stage a burglary at the home on Alicante.
