Lynn Hackett put flowers and a cross outside Gail Cleavenger's DeBary home on Monday, days after her longtime neighbor was killed and authorities arrested Cleavenger's 15-year-old son.

WFTV reported that Ramos allegedly strangled his mother and they got into a fight over a "D" grade he received in school.

Ramos confessed to using a wheelbarrow to move Gail's body into the family van and then drove to River City Church 1.5 miles away where he buried her in a fire pit. So he went back to strangle her again. Deputies say they helped him cover up the crime, after Ramos strangled his mother to death.

In this Reuters News video, Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood says a 15-year-old boy confessed to strangling his mother to death and shares some detail of the boys actions.

The two accused of being Ramos' accomplices - Dylan Ceglarek, 17, and Brian Porras, 17 - also students at the same high school in Orange City, were released and placed in home detention but ordered to wear ankle monitors.

Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted he might reunite with his former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney in the MLS. Unfortunately, the fairytale ended this week as Rooney missed a penalty in a 3-2 penalty shootout defeat to the Columbus Crew.

Chitwood said the three teens then went to a local Circle K to have a "celebratory soda" after burying the body. The boy said he came home from school and saw his mom was missing with her van still running in the driveway. "They helped him stage a burglary, and they helped hide all the electronics that w [ere] stolen from the house". He is a soulless individual, ' Chitwood said. Photos of Ramos showed markings on his face which the Sheriff's Office believes are from his mother fighting back, detectives said.

But Chitwood said detectives suspected the story from the start and brought Ramos in for questioning.

"The case we worked tonight was one of the most disturbing and saddest I've seen in my career".

"I have a feeling this is a case we'll be hearing about for years to come", he said. All our hearts break for this family. "Very proud of what he did".

The sheriff continued: 'We brought him out here (Friday) night to reenact the crime scene and you might have thought he was going on national television'.
