Teens Nicholas Presha, Jeremy Stewart Executed Over Drug Deal

In Orlando, Florida, Orange County sheriff's deputies identified two bodies found burning along a popular bike trail as 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart. They were apparently shot execution style over a possible drug deal gone bad. Authorities believe the pair owed $500.

The bodies were reportedly found early Sunday morning just off Cady Way Trail near Full Sail University. In a 911 call released by police, a caller says: "I can't tell if there is two mannequins or two people burning."

Police say Presha and Stewart were arrested in January on charges of grand theft of a motor vehicle and resisting arrest.

According to WKMG-TV, Nicholas is the son of Bernie Presha, an investigator for the state attorney's office and former Orange County sheriff's deputy. Both teens attended Winter Park High School in the Orlando area.

Deputies said a charred area near a storage unit at the nearby Sun Bay Apartments complex is somehow related to the deaths.
