Trey Zwicker, boy found dead at high school
LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) — A family still trying to find out why someone would kill a 14-year-old boy isn’t getting many answers from police. But close family friends are opening up to tell us more about the life of Trey Zwicker.
A wooded area behind a high school is the last place you would expect to find a 14-year-old’s body.
“The top part of his shoulders up was covered in blood and there was blood all over the ground and that he had never seen so much blood in his whole life,” says the mother of one of the boys who discovered Trey’s body. She wanted to remain anonymous. The Liberty High school students were walking outside behind the school when something caught his eye. “He saw something over by the creek and went over to it and realized it was a body.
The ditch then became the final spot where Trey’s dad Terry saw his son.
“As he explained to me, he just lost it and started rushing towards the crime tape,” says community activist Chris 2X. He talked with the grieving father Thursday morning. “They brought him closer to his son’s body and got pretty close, not totally up all the way on it and that time it sunk in it was his son laying in the ditch and he said he just almost collapsed out there.”
Police say someone murdered the teenager but have not named any suspects.
Regarding the students who found the body
“They were freshman. They were in the back of the school doing an activity as part of their lesson and they looked over in a ditch that runs adjacent to the school and they saw what appeared to be a body,” says Lauren Roberts, a spokesperson with Jefferson County Public Schools.
