BOSTON (AP) - A Massachusetts prosecutor says it's likely that a North Carolina teen whose mutilated body was found in a Boston suburb fell from the sky after stowing away in an airplane wheel well.

Norfolk District Attorney William Keating says police searched the area Friday in Milton where 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale was found last month, and they found sneakers and a shirt matching clothing his family said he'd worn.

He said the items were found along a path a Boston-bound plane would have taken while approaching the city.

Keating said authorities believe Tisdale hid in the airplane, in what Keating called a major breach of airport security.

Tisdale's body was found less than 24 hours after he was last seen in Charlotte, N.C.
