Watch: 15-year-old boy horribly murdered his 8-year-old neighbor

A 15-year-old boy lured an 8-year-old girl inside his apartment and killed her before hiding her body in a recycling bin.

Santa Cruz, California - An 8-year-old girl named Madyson “Maddy” Middleton was murdered by her neighbor.

Her body was found stashed in a dumpster on Monday.

The girl, who was last seen riding her Razor scooter on Sunday afternoon at the complex, was officially reported missing at 6:08 p.m. that evening. Video surveillance showed her riding about at 5:05 p.m.

Her disappearance prompted a frantic search, and FBI investigators went door-to-door looking for clues. The massive manhunt drew volunteers from among the dozens of printmakers, ceramacists and other artists who live in the housing complex.

Police Chief Kevin Vogel said the teen brought the girl to his apartment, where she went “willingly," before he "murdered her inside his apartment and carried her downstairs to the recycle bin." The teen was spotted very close to the dumpster bin when the body was found, Vogel added, and the girl's body was "concealed in a way that wasn't obvious or readily apparent." A police statement said the teen had gone to "great lengths" to hide and disguise the body.

"Maddy was an acquaintance to the suspect," he added. “She was lured to the suspect's apartment. She was not taken there against her will. She was eight years old and had a reasonable amount of trust in him.”

Adrian Jerry Gonzalez, 15, faces one count of murder with the special circumstance that he kidnapped, sexually assaulted and tied up Maddy before killing her, Santa Cruz County Dist. Atty. Jeffrey Rosell said Wednesday. He is also accused of lying in wait.

"He has also been charged with one count of kidnapping and four other sexual assault-related offenses, he said. If convicted of the charges, he faces life in prison," Rosell added.

Speaking at a news conference Tuesday morning, Rosell said his office is strongly considering charging the teen as an adult.

The video footage taken a few minutes before Maddy was killed.
