SPRING LAKE, N.C. -- Two soldiers in Fort Bragg's 82nd Airborne Division have been charged with killing a North Carolina teen and dumping his body.
Pvt. Sebastian Gamez and Spc. Christopher Blackett are both 20 years old. 82nd Airborne spokesman Staff Sgt. Andrew Alfano said Friday they're both truck drivers.
Both men are jailed on first-degree murder charges after authorities found the body of 17-year-old Vincent Carlisle Jr. in a wooded area north of his hometown of Spring Lake, just north of the Army post.
The body is being sent to the state medical examiner in Chapel Hill for an autopsy.
