CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Authorities are trying to determine whether a mutilated body found on a quiet residential street in an upscale Boston suburb is that of a missing Charlotte teenager.

Detectives from Milton, Mass., were in Charlotte Friday working with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, who are investigating the disappearance of North Mecklenburg High School sophomore Delvonte Tisdale.

A note with the name "Delvonte Tisdale" was found in the pants pocket of the man found dead in Milton Monday night. That note appears to be a hall pass. It also says "A lunch" and features a signature and the date 10/19/10.

The 16-year-old North Mecklenburg High School student was last seen in Charlotte on Sunday. His father filed a missing person report Monday, the day the unidentified body was found in Milton. The victim was not carrying identification.

An autopsy has not determined the cause of death. Police have found what may be one of the two cars witnesses saw in the area before the body was discovered. One vehicle, a white Audi A4, appears to have blood splattered in the wheel well of the car.
