A Georgia woman who was found dead in the trunk of her car was most likely lured by teenagers, her family said.

Toni Abad’s body was found Friday morning after employees at a Waffle House in South Fulton County alerted police to a suspicious vehicle behind the restaurant.


De’asia Page and Jared Kemp, both 18, were arrested and charged with murder.

According to WSB-TV, surveillance video showed that Abad had been flagged down by a woman, believed to be Page, late Thursday as she was leaving work at Publix.


The teens allegedly stole Christmas gifts Abad had bought for her grandchildren and then beat her before abandoning her car, her family said.


Kemp and Page, who investigators believe were homeless, are being held at the Fulton County Jail on murder charges. They have a scheduled court appearance on Jan. 9.
