There has been a break in the case of two Westland teens found murdered in Detroit this past summer.  We first showed you police raiding a home Tuesday night on the city's east side.  The victims' mothers are now talking to us about the new developments.

"I lost my only child," says Virgie Kudla.  "To lose him in such a traumatic way."

"I want to get up one day and it be tolerable," says Carrie Bobbish.

Two mothers share an unbreakable bond under unimaginable circumstances.  Their sons, 17-year-old Jourdan Bobbish and 18-year-old Jake Kudla of Westland, were found dead in a field last July shot execution style.

Now we're learning more about the moments that led up to their murders.  It involves a house on Algonac Street that was raided Tuesday night.  Police discovered blood inside.

"One of the speculative stories that we were told was that the boys were at a house in that neighborhood, so when there was the raid on that house, it kind of came together," says Kudla.

That house happens to be a block away from Jake's uncle's house on Beland where the teens started their fateful night.

Sources say Bobbish and Kudla left there and met up with some men, who brought them back the house on Algonac, part of a drug deal that went terribly wrong.

The men forced the teens into a car, drove them to the end of Lyford Street, walked into a field and shot them to death.  Their bodies were discovered days later.

"I do have anger moments like what were you thinking, you knew better," says Bobbish.

"I have his ashes on my dresser.  He is not going to be put to rest until whoever did this to him suffers.  They have to pay for their crime," Kudla says.

Sources say the two men police believe are responsible for killing Bobbish and Kudla are already behind bars, arrested on other charges.

The 21-year-old, who was arrested during the raid Tuesday is considered a witness.

This is a complicated case.  We've discovered there are several players connected to this crime, several behind bars already who've been linked to other Detroit crimes.

"I'm glad they're off the streets so no other mother feels this way," says Bobbish.

As they wait for complete closure on this case, one thing these mothers say they haven't yet been able to do is thank the man who discovered their sons' bodies.  They say he could've just looked the other way, but instead he did the right thing and called police.
