Vy Ngoc Bao-Pham, a teen who went missing in Houston, prompting an Amber Alert, was found dead.

Police say that her boyfriend Luan Hoang Vu, 19, killed her.

He’s facing a capital murder charge in the death of the 17-year-old.

“He drew a map to where he put the body. Then he brought us to the bayou and pointed her out,” Fil Waters, a detective, told the Houston Chronicle.

Police said the motive is that Bao-Pham met someone else, upsetting Vu.

She told him “I’m done talking,” after he confronted her about it, and shortly after he killed her.
