17-year-old arrested in connection with body found inside burned car

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a body found inside a burned car on the West Side, according to San Antonio police.

Police are not identifying the suspect because he is a juvenile. He turned himself in Thursday and has been charged with murder.

Sebastian Carpio, 17, was reported missing on Sept. 19. He had last been seen on the 5500 block of Burgate Farm, according to a flyer issued by police.

The following day, Carpio was found in the trunk of a burned vehicle in the 6600 block of Calle Duarte.

Officers with the San Antonio Police Department and Bexar County Sheriff’s Office found the car around 9 a.m., according to police.

The car was “completely burned” and “there appeared to be human skeletal remains inside,” police said in a statement. The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office assisted in the investigation.

The 17-year-old arrested Thursday has been transported to the the Bexar County Juvenile Detention Center.
