Last Thursday, Gregory Logan Ramos had an argument with his mother Gail Cleavenger over a bad grade he’d gotten at school. Cleavenger proceeded to call the teenager’s father about it.


Later on, Ramos retaliated by strangling her to death and then burying her body. The next day, after school, he called 911 and pretended there was a burglary at their house and his mother was missing.

Florida resident Gregory Logan Ramos, 15, confessed to killing his mother, Gail Cleavenger, 46, at their home in DeBary. Ramos killed his mother during the early hours of Friday morning after he got a D grade.

He then enlisted the help of his two friends, Dylan Ceglarek and Brian Porras, both 17, to help him get rid of her body. Ramos used a wheelbarrow to transport her body to her car.

Then with the help of his two friends, Ramos staged a burglary at his home. Reports state that the teenager later confessed to killing his mother and implicated his friends.

When Sergeant A.J. Pagliari des described Ramos’ confession:


“Wasn’t very emotional about it at all. He used some expletives and said, ‘I’ll tell you what happened.’ Very cold, calculated and very proud of what he did.”

At around 3:52 p.m. on Friday, Ramos called 911 and reported a burglary which he supposedly discovered when he came home from school. He said his mother was missing and that her van was still running in the driveway.

In his confession, the suspect revealed that he’d strangled his mother twice before he could kill her. After strangling her the first time, he went to get the wheelbarrow and realized she was still alive.


According to his confession, it took him 30 minutes of strangling her with his hands to kill her and the murder was called a “pre-emptive strike.” Investigators found no evidence that Ramos was abused at the home.


Porras and Ceglarek have been charged as accessories to first-degree murder. They appeared before a judge on Sunday. Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood called Ramos one of the “top three sociopaths” he has ever met.

He said the teenager was a “soulless individual.”

In a similar case, police were called to a $1, 3 million converted chapel in Crowborough, East Sussex. There they found the body of Fiona Fisher, 51, a manager for a multi-million beauty brand.


The police arrested her son, Thomas, 22, who answered the door and let the police in. He was arrested on the suspicion of murder.

Appearing at Lewes Crown Court, he denied a charge of murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter due to diminished responsibility. He was sentenced on November 1.
