Teen accused of killing his classmate

Harris County deputies have made an arrest in the murder of a Katy girl. The suspect is a classmate of Bridgett Frisbie's. In fact, he was at her home and met her father just three weeks ago. A witness who came forward led sheriff's investigators to Alexander Olivieri, 18, who was arrested at his Katy home early Thursday morning. It's a difficult pill to swallow for students at Raines High School, after what has already been a very difficult week.

Bridgett's father Bob Frisbie said, "It's just hard to see her gone, just hard."

A father is left heartbroken and full of questions after sheriff's investigators arrested a teen they believe murdered his 17-year-old daughter.

Frisbie said, "I had no inkling that he was capable of anything like this."

Olivieri and Bridgett Frisbie were acquaintances who both went to Raines High School. The 18-year-old murder suspect gave a nod and a smirk to the camera as authorities led him away in handcuffs to jail.

Olivieri is accused of fatally shooting Frisbie in the head. Some teenagers riding four wheelers found her body in a wooded area in Katy on Sunday.

A woman in Olivieri's house told Eyewitness News, "We're not interested in speaking with anyone right now, but thank you for coming by."

No one inside the home would talk, but we know from the Olivieri's Facebook page that he was very much interested in the military. Frisbie's father, who met Olivieri three weeks ago, says he talked about joining the army.

"He had a future," Frisbie said. "He had career plans."

So how does a teenager who professed his love for his country become an accused killer? The motive for murder remains unclear and investigators have asked Frisbie's father to refrain from talking about one.

He said, "If he's capable of this at such a young age, it's time he's off the street."

Olivieri remains behind bars at the Harris County Jail.

Funeral services for Bridgett Frisbie will be held this Saturday at 2:30pm at the Schmidt Funeral Home in Katy.
