    Burning Body Found on Side of Attleboro Road

    Police in Attleboro, Massachusetts, are investigating after a man's dead body was found burning on the side of Prescott Street.

    (Published Tuesday, July 18, 2017)

    A 17-year-old and his mother have been indicted in Rhode Island for the death of his mother's boyfriend.

    The man's burning body was found last year in a wooded area of Massachusetts.

    Xavier Vidot has been charged as an adult with one count of murder and using a firearm while committing a crime of violence. His mother, 36-year-old Melonie Perez, has been charged with compounding a felony, failing to report a death and misprision of a felony.

    Police say Vidot told officers he shot 24-year-old Valdez Loiseau in Cranston after the man got into an altercation with the boy's mother. Authorities say Perez told officers she helped her son move the body.

    Police found Loiseau's burned body in Attleboro, Massachusetts in July 2017.
