Georgia authorities arrested two teenagers after discovering the body of 18-year-old Sam Ross who was reported missing four days ago.

Perry Police charged 18-year-old Brandon Warren and 17 -year-old Dakota White, with the murder of Sam Poss, who was discovered in a wooded area following an intense search.

The three teens attended Perry High School together. An arrest warrant obtained by The Macon Telegraph autopsy results determined the cause of death was by “strangulation, suffocation, or stabbing.”

Investigators suspect Poss’s killing had probably occurred early Saturday morning. The victim’s father said the high school graduate went to White’s house to repair a computer and was last witnessed leaving on foot around 1:30 a.m. after refusing a ride home, WMAZ reported.

When he failed to return home, his family contacted Police, according to the Telegraph.

Authorities immediately launched an extensive search of a 200-acre heavily wooded area in Houston County involving a specialized unit of firefighters, cadaver dogs, and state Police helicopter.

Police took White into custody late Wednesday night before discovering the body. Officers arrest Warren around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning.

A Houston County judge denied both suspects bail during a court hearing on Thursday.
