Mother speaks out about son's murder
LAUDERDALE LAKES, Fla. (WSVN) -- Authorities are still investigating the murder of a teen who was found shot dead in the bathroom of his home.
Stephen Rutty, 18, was found shot to death by his stepfather at their home on the 3700 block of Northwest 27th Avenue on Monday. Investigators said the home was ransacked but showed no signs of forced entry. "They turned everything upside down to make it look like it's a burglary. I had $600 here in cash; it wasn't taken," said Simone Channer. "He didn't break into my home. He was invited into my home by my son."
Channer believes her son's murder stemmed from an incident that happened the day before he was shot.
