"That car became a death chamber for those girls," Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in a news conference Thursday. The bodies of Dominique Battle, 16, Ashaunti Butler, 15, and Laniya Miller, 15, were found after the car drove into the pond around 4 a.m. EDT (0800 GMT) as the driver apparently was trying to evade police, Gualtieri said. The deputies were not actively chasing the car and did not have their emergency lights on, Gualtieri said. The car was stolen in St. Petersburg the night before, he said. The owner of the car told police a friend had borrowed it to give the girls a ride to a nearby park, the sheriff said. ' ' The three teens had, between them, seven arrests - most of them for grand theft auto, he said. "On the eighth time, they died," Gualtieri said.
