Santa Maria teen found dead had troubled past

It appears the Santa Maria teenager whose burned body was found in Santa Margarita last week had a troubled past.

On Friday, the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department identified the body as that of 15 year-old Dystiny Myers.

Myers lived with her grandmother in Santa Maria. She was a member of Pacific Christian Church in Santa Maria.

Pastor Rick Bloom tells KSBY News she was full of energy and loved to sing and perform. Bloom also says in the last year Myers had gotten off track and had lost her way.

We'll take a closer look at what might have led the teenager down the wrong path. Watch KSBY News tonight at 5 and 6 for more on this developing story.
