DA: Pa. teen found dead after abduction was shot

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Authorities are searching for suspects in the killing of a teenager whose body was found shot in the back on the side of a road shortly after he had been abducted from his Philadelphia-area home.

Investigators say 19-year-old Kareem Ali Borowy was taken from the home in West Pottsgrove at gunpoint Sunday afternoon. His body was found in a grassy area along a road a short time later.

Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele says an autopsy conducted Monday determined Borowy died from a gunshot wound to the back.

Authorities say multiple suspects armed with handguns stormed into Borowy's home Sunday, demanded money and then took the teen. Investigators don't believe it was a random act.
