FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police say a 17-year-old girl was found dead near the back door of a home in Fort Worth.
The Tarrant County medical examiner's office says Claudia Hidic of Fort Worth had been shot in the head.
Samira Hidic, her older sister, says the family doesn't know what happened but they are grieving for the youth she described as "bighearted and beautiful."
The younger Hidic had recently completed her junior year at Trinity High School in Euless.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/O3wXWP) reports that a man who lives at the house called 911 when he found Hidic's body Thursday night. He told police he did not know her.
Police say the body was facedown near the back door, which appeared to have been kicked in.
