A Lakeside man was jailed Friday in connection with the death of an El Capitan High School student, whose body was found on the Barona Indian Reservation in December. The 17-year-old victim, Christopher Carioscia, told his mother that he was going surfing Oct. 26. His burned-out car was found on the reservation the next day, and his body was found near San Vicente Reservoir Dec. 4.
The Sheriff's Department reports that 19-year-old Stanley Virgil Lloyd Jr. was taken into custody for Christopher's death at about 6:30 a.m. at his home on Quincy Canyon Road on Friday.
An autopsy showed Christopher had been shot with a .357-caliber pistol, most likely a revolver. A plastic bag containing the type of bullets that likely killed the teen was found near his body.
The Sheriff's Department did not disclose any relationship between the victim and suspect or a possible motive for the murder.
