I am writing a past story as a narrative in the present tense.

The first part goes as follows:

"On 6 May, 1993, three eight year-old boys are found dead in a drainage ditch in West Memphis, Arkansas"

I need some advice on the second part, please. Is the following correct?

"The boys are naked and hogtied. All have been badly beaten. One boy's sexual organs are mutilated"

Thank you kindly!
