The family of a Mooresville teen who was found dead Saturday said they have few answers about the circumstances of his death.
They hope to find some closure in the medical examiners report early this week, said the teens aunt, who did not give her name. She said the teen did not have any known medical conditions.
Police have identified the teen as Aaron Michael Willis.
His mother, Anna Willis, cried as she remembered her sons love for athletics. He was a student at Lake Norman High School.
Mooresville Police Capt. Joseph Cooke said the body of the 15-year-old was found on Saturday afternoon in a wooded area next to Montibello Drive, in the Morrison Plantation community. The sidewalk-lined community is near the Lowes YMCA and Hope Park.
Cooke said the autopsy was expected to be performed Monday, which will help police determine the cause of death.
The teens parents thought he was spending the night at a friends house in the area, Cook said. When the teen didnt come home the next day, they started looking for him.
At 5:03 p.m. Saturday, police received a call that neighbors had found the boy unresponsive in the woods.
Im in the woods behind the houses, said the sons father on an emotional 911 call released by police on Monday. I found my son dead.
