  • A 15-year-old Florida teen is in custody at the U.S.-Canada border, hours after police discovered the body of a woman believed to be his missing grandmother in a shallow grave near the boy’s home, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reported. Logan Tyler Mott was detained by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as he tried to enter Canada from Buffalo, New York, sheriff’s deputies said. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office had called Mott “armed and dangerous” and a person of interest in the death of his grandmother, 53-year-old Kristina June French. Mott was being watched by French at her Neptune Beach home while his father, a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office corrections officer, was on vacation. Mott’s mother, Carrie Campbell-Mott, said the boy’s father, Eric Mott, was on vacation with his girlfriend. Eric Mott took an Uber home from the airport Wednesday after French never showed up to get them, Campbell-Mott said. When they got home, the door to their home was open and the house was ransacked, Campbell-Mott said. Eric Mott's guns were missing from a gun safe, Campbell-Mott said. French’s home in the Mayport area also was ransacked. Her weapons were gone, along with her Dodge Dart. Mott and French were reported missing after Logan didn't show up to high school on Monday or Tuesday. French also didn't show up for work Monday or Tuesday. A warrant was issued for his arrest Thursday on a charge of auto theft, deputies said. Originally, deputies believed that Tyler Mott and French may have been traveling together in the Dodge Dart. A missing child alert was issued by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The teen and the missing vehicle were spotted Thursday on surveillance video in south central Pennsylvania, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office reported. In a statement, Campbell-Mott she was “relieved” that her son was in custody. “We just ask for everyone to give us time to sort out what happened,” Campbell-Mott said. “That no matter what, Logan is our child and we love him and are standing by him to help in any way. We want to find out what happened to Kristina and we need time for that to happen.” Campbell-Mott said a sheriff’s detective will fly to meet Logan on Saturday. In a statement, the May Institute, a nonprofit organization that employed French, said it was “truly devastated” to learn of her death. “Kristina was a friend and a role model to so many people. … She was a true champion for people with disabilities and advocated tirelessly for human rights. “We have lost a beautiful person and she will be dearly missed. It is a very sad day.”
  • “The War on I-4 did not disappoint!” said an exhausted and exhilarated ESPN broadcaster after UCF defeated USF, 49-42, at Spectrum Stadium to gain a berth in the American Athletic Conference title game and complete a perfect 11-0 regular season. Two years ago, UCF lost every game. The turnaround is the quickest in NCAA Division I football history. Viewers went to social media to call tonight’s game one of the best of the college football season. #USFvsUCF USF, trailing by a point, was able to score a touchdown on an 83-yard pass from Quinton Flowers to Darnell Salomon and a tying two-point conversion with less than two minutes remaining when Flowers found D’Ernest Johnson in the endzone. UCF’s Mike Hughes then ran back the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown to regain the lead before an electrified sellout crowd. Seconds later, a fumble by a USF receiver sealed the victory for the Knights. The victory could prove to be bittersweet for UCF’s football program. Unconfirmed reports say that head coach Scott Frost  is either headed to Nebraska or will interview for the Florida head coaching job soon. Frost said after the game that he is giving his “100 percent” to the team, which prepares to host the conference title game against Memphis.

  • Well-known Orlando-based attorney John Morgan tweeted Friday that he cannot “muster the enthusiasm to run for the nomination” for Florida governor. The tweet also said that it was “amazing to be leading the polls for Governor without being a candidate.” And I can’t muster enthusiasm for any of today’s politicians. They are all the same. Both parties. I plan to register as an Independent and when I vote, vote for the lesser of two evils. And if I ever ran, run as an Independent. #ForThePeople — John Morgan (@JohnMorganESQ) November 24, 2017 Gov. Rick Scott is leaving office due to term limits.
