Wrongful death lawsuit filed by family of teen who was killed

The family of a teenager that was killed last month have now filed a wrongful death lawsuit against another teenager that has been charged for the crime.

A 17-year-old boy is being held in Traverse County jail on a murder charge at this time. The family stated that they are suffering financially since their 16-year-old daughter went missing.

She disappeared on June 2 and was later found dead on June 14. The cause of death was a stab wound.

Our deepest condolences are with the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
