Police Will Seek Murder Charges_56945987-159532

Search teams looking for a missing 16-year-old girl in Texas City have discovered a body believed to be Kirsten Fritch authorities say.

Kirsten Fritch had not been seen since her mother and sister were found shot to death in their Baytown home Tuesday.

Police arrested Fritch’s 21-year-old boyfriend Jesse Dobbs in a Texas City bar Tuesday night. That’s where Equisearch crews were looking for Fritch on Thursday.

Texas City police say Jesse Dobbs did not go easily when they confronted him inside the bar where he was on Tuesday night.

So far Dobbs is only charged with resisting arrest. Polk County Court records show Dobbs was sentenced to 30 days in jail earlier this year, for assaulting the mother of his two young children.
