Police initially responded to a report of suspicious activity in 8000 block of McKinney Road this past November.

“When officers arrived at the scene, they found the teen unresponsive in a pond. Frisco Police said after a months-long investigation, detectives gathered enough evidence that led to Tashman’s role in aiding the suicide,” NBC 5 News wrote.

“Authorities secured a warrant for Tashman’s arrest and took him into custody on Sunday, Feb. 18. His bond was set at $10,000.”

The incident occurred at Frisco Commons Park, the outlet added.
