    Huerta’s mother, Sylvia Fernandez, said Wednesday that her son ran away from the family apartment on Washington Street, and she wanted police to help. Fernandez, who doesn’t speak English, asked her daughter to call police.

    In a recording of the 911 call, the sister told the call-taker they were worried because the teen was using drugs and once tried to take his own life. But the family said Wednesday Huerta never tried to kill himself.

    So we have the 911 call that the news station WRAL has heard where the sister told the dispatcher Huerta had tried to kill himself before.  Then the next day the family claims Huerta had never tried to kill himself.

    One of these statements cannot be true.
