COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Fourteen year old Jorge Saavedra will stay at the Collier County Juvenile Detention Center for the next 21 days. He's being charged with manslaughter in the bus stop stabbing death of 16-year-old Dylan Nuno. Brand new details from witnesses lay out exactly what they saw Monday.
Over at Nuno’s house, where he lived with his father, there’s a full driveway of cars. Nuno's aunt tells WINK News the pain is too new for them to talk about their loss yet.
Students from Palmetto Ridge High School still on the bus when the stabbing occurred say Nuno and Saavedra were talking about a fight before ever getting off the bus.
They say Nuno threw the first punch, and then believed Saavedra was hitting Nuno in the stomach, until they realized it was much more serious than that.
According to Saavedra’s arrest report it reads “as Mr. Nuno fell to the ground he was heard saying something about being stabbed. Witnesses saw Mr. Saavedra run across the street and stoop down for a moment. As he stooped down he’s seen with a knife and blood on his hands. At that time, the witnesses realized that Mr. Saavedra was not punching Mr. Nuno, Mr. Nuno was being stabbed.”
After a foot chase, deputies caught Saavedra. The weapon deputies think he used to kill Nuno still has not been found at this time.
In the meantime, friends are taking to You Tube to remember their classmate.
The school district says deputies have been on campus Tuesday questioning students.
Saavedra, 14-years-old, is being charged with manslaughter. When the State Attorney’s office gets this case, they will decide if he will be tried as an adult.
