LAWRENCE, Mass (WWLP) – A Massachusetts Teen is facing murder charges after being accused of beheading a classmate. 16-year-old Matthew Borges is accused of brutally killing his classmate, Lee Viloria Paulino. Viloria Paulino was reported missing after he was last seen leaving his grandmother’s house on November 18th.
His decapitated body was found along the Merrimack River earlier this week, and his grieving family is demanding answers.
Parents of the victim told 22News “Nothing you can do now is going to return our kid.”
Both of the teens were sophomore at Lawrence High School. The district attorney says Borges is being charged as an adult, and will appear in court on Monday.
