LUTZ, Fla. - Police said a Florida teenager is accused of killing his grandmother inside her home at a nudist community and driving around with the body for nearly five hours.
Police said a neighbor called authorities early Monday after seeing the teen drag what appeared to be a body into a minivan. Deputies tried to pull over Machetto, but he kept driving.
Authorities said he ended up back at the Paradise Lakes community where his grandmother, 74-year-old Sylvia Schmitt, lived.
Machetto is being held without bail on a first-degree murder charge. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
Friends said Machetto suffered a brain injury several years ago.
