There are still a lot of unanswered questions and concerns in this close-knit community as
arrests have not yet been made.
This all began early Tuesday morning when the bodies of 18-year-old Hunter Mock and 16-year-old Angelito Caraballo were found in a wooded area on Ferndale Road about a mile east of Route 209 in New Philadelphia.
Mock went missing on Monday afternoon from his home in New Philadelphia. Caraballo also went missing Sunday night from his home in New Philadelphia.

The coroner ruled their deaths homicides but had not released how they were killed. People in this close-knit community want answers.
“I feel bad for the parents who lost them. Kind of scary in a way but shocking in New Philadelphia though. I hear kids screaming you think they are having a party. But not this no,” said Kindle Manley, of New Philadelphia.

State police have not officially released Caraballo’s name. Anyone with information about the deaths is urged to call State Police at Frackville.
