Teen Kidnapping Suspects Had Prior Run-Ins with the Law

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Two of the teens charged with the aggravated kidnapping of an 11-year old girl back on Thursday had already had run-ins with the law.

Jacob Musich and Colton Visor were star athletes at Carroll High School, but now, both sit in the Nueces County Jail on $1 million bonds.

Musich was on the swim team at Carroll. Earlier this year, he had qualified for the state meet in Austin. Meanwhile, Visor ran track for the Tigers, and was friends with Musich and the other defendant in this case, Eric Dimick.

Dimick is still a student at Carroll while the other two had left school.

Visor had enrolled at the Richard Milburn Academy and was learning to weld, but he had already run into trouble with the law back on October after he was charged with theft. Five days later, he was facing five charges of burglary of a vehicle.

Musich had been charged with possession of marijuana last year, and then on Oct. 18 he was charged with theft.

All three of them ended up in jail after police say they abducted an 11-year old girl who was riding her bike down her street on Thursday. She was found an hour later on Padre Island.

Teresa Castillo lives three houses from the Musich home on Tangled Ridge. She was shocked by the allegation because she thought Musich was a good kid.

"I'm shocked, when I saw it. My daughter goes to Carroll, too. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. He is a good kid as far as we knew. I mean, obviously, the things say differently," Castillo said. "I was just shocked. I mean, we allowed him into our home. I mean, not inside. He mowed our lawns."

Neighbors said that Musich had told them at one time that he had worked for the City of Corpus Christi as a lifeguard, and had also worked at our waterpark in town.

The parents of the teens had no comment on the incident.

One defendant, Eric Dimick, has a court appointed attorney. Vincent Gonzalez has asked Judge Tom Greenwell to lower his bail. No hearing date has been set on that request.
