After being taken into custody, the teenager allegedly posted a photo of his reflection in the police car, flashing a peace sign, with the caption: “Hey guys has inybody seen Tristyn lately”. [sic]

According to St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, they received a missing persons call at 10 AM Sunday morning; Bailey’s family told detectives they had not seen her since midnight Saturday.

Police immediately issued a missing persons report, asking for public assistance in locating her, telling local residents she was last seen wearing a white cheerleading skirt and a dark colored shirt.

But by 6 PM Sunday the worst was confirmed; a body was located in the woods by a volunteer, and identified.

According to the arrest report obtained by First Coast News, deputies discovered security footage that showed two teens walking together at around 1:45 AM Sunday morning; later footage showed one person walking alone shortly before 3:30 AM, holding a pair of shoes.

The report states that while being interviewed in the presence of his mother, she mentioned something about the video depicting him carrying his shoes, to which Fucci replied his feet hurt.

After obtaining a warrant, investigators said that among the evidence they found was an outfit that matched the one the suspect was wearing in the video; they also said some of the items seized tested positive for the presence of blood.

“First, we want to thank each of you for your continued efforts by sending in tips to us. We have gained valuable information and look into everything that is being sent,” they wrote.

“There are a number of accounts however that are using this case to try to gain fame and followers. Please know that these individuals had nothing to do with this incident.”

“At this time, the below accounts have already been investigated and no longer need to be forwarded to the Sheriff’s Office,” they added, listing a number of Instagram user names they had determined to be fakers.
