Last month, residents of a toney burb, about 7 miles from the center of downtown Boston, woke up to find a horribly mutilated body lying in the middle of their private way. This neighborhood is only 3 miles away from some of Boston's worst gang activity.

They were able to ID him. His name was Dalante West.

He was a 16 year old from North Carolina who had been reported missing only 12 hours earlier. He was last seen in NC the previous morning.

The cops are still working on a theory; a bizarre and specific theory.

If you know, don't tell. Let's go, Sherlock(s)!

I don't know if it's fair because I do so many of these things. I've never heard this specific one, but it has elements I've seen/heard before. I think the key is something I saw on Burn Notice.

Maybe I'll just put out some initial guesses.

Was he reported missing because he ran away from home?

Is the mutilation in a fashion that would occur after a fall from a great height?

Was there a trail of clothing between NC & Boston?

Were the wounds consistent with that of a Stihl hedge trimmer?

Sounds like one of those stories about hiding in a planes landing gear hold and then falling out once the doors opened.

That's what I was thinking. Next, I was going to ask if the site where he was found was on the approach to the airport.

If he didn't run away, I don't know what the story is for him climbing into the landing gear, then. Unless he worked at the airport as a mechanic.

I don't know what a toney burb is.

Isn't Delonte West one of the Boston Celtics?
