Second teen detained in connection to death of 17-year-old in New Braunfels

The New Braunfels Police Department says that a second teen has been detained and charged with murder in connection to the death of 17-year-old Conrad Kuntz.

Detectives say a 16-year-old from New Braunfels was taken to the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center and charged with murder. Officials say because of the suspect's age his identity will not be released.

Another teen, a 15-year-old from Marion, has also been charged with murder and is in custody at the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center also.


Kuntz was found with a gunshot wound on June 17th in the 1500 block of Lahn Road at around 10 p.m. EMS attempted to save him but Kuntz succumbed to his injuries.

News of the second teen's detention comes as Kuntz's family has released information about a vigil and services.

A vigil is to be held tonight (6/21) at Prince Solms Park at the Tube Chute. It begins at 7:30 p.m. with a tree dedication, followed by a balloon release and then a candlelight vigil at 8:30 p.m.
