SEBASTOPOL (CBS/AP) — The father of a Sebastopol teen has raised more than $8,000 to bring his son’s body back from Peru, where police said the 18-year-old was buried by a shaman after he drank a brew made with a hallucinogenic plant.

Sean Nolan told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat he thinks his son was murdered. He said more than 80 people have donated money to bring the teen’s body home for a second autopsy.
