Florida teen wanted in connection with grandmother's death captured at Canadian border

An image released by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office of Logan Mott and Kristina French

A body believed to be of Logan's 53-year-old grandmother, Kristina French, was found by police on Friday in a shallow grave.

"The burial site was excavated today and human remains were located".

When he got home, he discovered what deputies said was "evidence of foul play" and "potential criminal violence", including a damaged safe that contained firearms.

Logan Mott, 15, has been captured late Friday night by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CDP) as he tried to enter Canada from Buffalo, New York, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

At a Friday press conference, police did not describe Logan Mott as a suspect, instead saying: "We need to talk to him about what happened in the house", a police representative said.

The teen was spotted on surveillance video in Pennsylvania driving the missing auto on Thursday.

Just as Campbell-Mott could not have imagined French hurting her son, she also could not believe that Logan would harm or intentionally kill his grandmother. Detectives with the Neptune Beach Police Department, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, the FDLE and the FBI are investigating the case.

It wasn't immediately clear how Logan's grandmother came to die and why for that matter the woman was buried in the boy's backyard and what caused the teen to flee.

Mott's mother Carrie Campbell-Mott released the following statement after learning her son was in custody, CBS affiliate WJAX reports: "We are relieved he is safe and in custody and we just ask for everyone to give us time to sort out what happened. We want to find out what happened to Kristina and we need time for that to happen". Please call me. I will help you.

She said a Jacksonville detective will fly to meet Logan on Saturday. His dad, Eric Mott, a former Guns N' Hoses boxer, was on vacation with a girlfriend. Sources tell Action News Jax that Logan, the guns and the Dodge Dart are still missing.

Eyewitness News is working to get more details on the story.

Campbell-Mott said she last spoke to Logan on Sunday and that he seemed to be in a good mood.

"A big thank you to all for sharing and allowing us to quickly stop Logan Mott".
