The murder of Karen Perez: Teen romance turned into something horrifying

Texas teen Karen Perez suffered a horrifying death at the hands of someone she was supposed to trust. Police in Houston say that the girl's 15-year-old boyfriend is the culprit behind her untimely demise. The details surrounding this case are absolutely shocking, and the evidence against the teen's boyfriend is equally as disturbing as the circumstances that ended in the death of a 15-year-old high school freshman.

In May of this year, Karen Perez was reported missing by her parents when she didn't return home after leaving school on foot. It was known that she was supposed to meet up with her boyfriend that afternoon, and surveillance footage in the area showed her entering a Mexican food restaurant with at least one other teenager. Her parents knew to tell authorities to check with her 15-year-old boyfriend, which is exactly what they had intended.

Meanwhile, the father of Karen's boyfriend took his son out to search for the missing teen. It was during the drive around the city, in the area where she was last seen, that the unnamed teenage boy told his father to take him back home. He admitted to the man that Karen was "not alive anymore." It was thanks to the boy's father that the body of Karen Perez was found, because he immediately called the police and turned his son in on the suspicion that he murdered the 15-year-old girl.

Police say that suspicion was absolutely right. The 15-year-old unnamed boyfriend of the missing girl led authorities to the exact spot where her body had been hidden. Her body had been stuffed into a cabinet beneath a kitchen sink in an abandoned apartment, which was located next to the high school where she was a student. News of the discovery of her body went viral, due to the manner in which it was found. However, the truly shocking details behind how she got there have rocked people across the nation, and have destroyed at least two families.

Police say that the 15-year-old boyfriend of Karen Perez bullied her into meeting him for sex after school the afternoon she went missing. Text messages between the two indicated that her life was under direct threat if she had refused to meet the other teenager like he demanded. Giving in to his demands was a fatal mistake for Karen Perez, because when she did meet up with the unnamed boy, the two ended up in the abandoned apartment where he forced her to have sex with him. Shocking evidence of the crime includes a cellphone video, which authorities say clearly documents the rape and murder of 15-year-old Karen Perez. The video is reportedly blurry, but the 15-year-old girl can be heard pleading for her life, telling her boyfriend that she didn't "want to die," while he was reportedly strangling her. She could also be heard begging him to not have sex with her, but she was raped before the boy allegedly took her life in a violent manner.

When Karen Perez was dead, and when her killer was done having sex with her, he reportedly hid her body by stuffing it in the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. The teenage boy then went home in an attempt to go about his normal daily life. His facade of normalcy quickly crumbled when his father pushed him into searching for his missing girlfriend.

Karen Perez was robbed of her sexual rights and, ultimately, her life, in a truly humiliating and terrifying fashion. Her final moments were recorded for reasons unknown, but those final moments were filled with fear, suffering and emotions which are unfathomable to someone who has not experienced the same. Sadly, due to the age of the boy who has admitted to his actions, there will be no death penalty. Even if the death penalty was on the table, there doesn't seem to be a punishment fitting enough for this 15-year-old monster.
