He was found in the 13000 block of Jeb Stuart Square in Centreville, Virginia, Wednesday morning.

A delivery truck driver called police after seeing a body laying in the street near Centreville Farms Community Association.

Police arrived to find the victim had sustained upper body trauma. They found no weapons nearby.

Unable to identify him Wednesday, investigators released an image of a distinctive sweatshirt the juvenile was wearing, in the hope someone might recognize the skull and snake design.
