Body of Missing Texas Teen Found, Amber Alert Discontinued

Three days after a statewide Amber Alert was issued for a missing Texas teen, police say they have found her body.

Baytown police said the body of 16-year-old Kristen Fritch was found on Thursday in a wooded area behind a bar in Texas City, which is about 25 miles from Baytown.

Fritch was reported missing Tuesday after her mother, Cynthia Morris, 37, and her 13-year-old sister, Breanna Pavilicek, were found shot to death in their Baytown home.

Fritch's 21-year-old boyfriend, Jesse Dobbs, who is a person of interest in the shootings, was taken into custody at a bar in Texas City on Monday. Police say he abducted Fritch.

Surveillance video shows officers barge into the bar, struggle with Dobbs, then fall to the ground before arresting him.

Dobbs was transported to Galveston County jail and charged with resisting arrest. Police said they will also be seeking murder charges against him. His bond has been set at $50,000.
