THE eerie cause of death of two teenage runaways discovered in a water basin has been revealed.

A dog walker discovered the bodies of Sitlalli Avelar, 17, and Kamryn Meyers, 15, two weeks after they went missing in Mesa, Arizona.

Before the man made the grisly discovery in a water retention basin, the girls had vanished from their group home in the city on January 7.

Police were perplexed by the case because the bodies appeared to have been in the water for some time.

The dog walker who called cops said he initially thought one of the victims’ bodies was a mannequin.

The second teen was found lying just 10 feet away from her friend after emergency services arrived.

The medical examiner’s office has now released the cause of death for Sitalli and Kamryn, which was listed as accidental.

The teens drowned while “acutely” intoxicated with alcohol, it was determined.

Kamryn is also said to have had marijuana traces in her system, implying she used it shortly before her death.

Investigators said there doesn’t appear to be any signs of foul play but called on the public to get in touch with any more information.

Details about the mysterious case are scarce, and detectives are still trying to figure out why the couple fled.

According to KPHO, their group home, which opened in October, is one of several run by Powerhouse Youth Facility Inc.

Brad Miller, a facility lawyer, previously stated that both teens had a history of leaving the facility.

According to state law, workers at the centre cannot force children to stay there.

He claimed staff had tried to stop the girls from leaving the home on January 6 and they notified authorities when Sitlalli and Kamryn failed to return the following day.

One of Kamryn’s close friends described how he learned of her death after receiving a text message from a mutual friend.

Keith Plummer, who met her in 2021 at a programme for at-risk young women, called her “a really good person.”

The two stayed in touch and became friends, communicating via social media.

Keith explained that they were in the same group chat and checked in on each other on a regular basis.

He told KPNX-TV: “I got a text message on the group chat saying, ‘Guys, Kamryn’s dead.’

“Her death was a total surprise to all of us, which makes it hurt the worst. She was only 15.

“She was entertaining; she was hilarious; she always put a smile on my face. She didn’t deserve this. It’s absolutely messed up.”
