ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — A father says a body found in a burned northwest Missouri home in a case that has led to charges against a 10-year-old and two other juveniles was that of his missing 14-year-old son.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that Joshua Satterley said his son, Cameron Satterley, ran away in February. A nearby home burned just days later, but Cameron’s body wasn’t found until last month.

Juvenile officials say the 10-year-old, along with an 11- and 15-year-old, are charged with abandonment of a corpse. Two of them also are charged with arson.

Satterly said one of the boys told him “they were just playing around and that he tried to wake Cameron up.” Satterley says he’s not sure what happened.

Police haven’t released the cause of death or other details.
