A fourteen year old boy stabbed a thirteen year old girl 114 times, killing her in the process. He will be tried for first degree murder as an adult. Anyone who is that viscous should never be trusted to be loose on the streets again. The boy had posted on social media that he planned to kill someone. He said he planned to take them into the woods and stab them, which is exactly what he did to 13-year-old Tristyn Bailey.
The fourteen year old that committed the murder was originally charged with second degree murder but after taking all things into consideration, including the many times he stabbed his victim, the charges were upgraded to murder one. That also figured into their decision to try him as an adult.
State attorney R.J. Larizza said:
“It brings me no pleasure to be charging a 14-year-old as an adult with first-degree murder. But I can tell you, also, the executive team and I reviewed all the facts, all the circumstances, the applicable law, and it was not a difficult decision to make that he should be charged as an adult. It’s a sad decision, and a sad state of affairs.”
“Every time that arm went back and every time that arm went down, that was premeditation.”
“He didn’t say who that was, but he indicated to witnesses that he was going to kill someone by taking them in the woods and stabbing them, which are certainly the facts of this case.”
The young killer posted this question on social media, “Hey guys has inybody [sic] seen Tristyn lately[.]” That is the same day that her body was discovered. They found his DNA on her body.
A knife believed to belong to the suspect was discovered in a pond near Tristyn’s body, officials reported, and noted that the “tip of that blade was ‘broken off’ and ‘located by the medical examiner in the scalp of our victim.'”

In a statement, St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Commander Howard “Skip” Cole said, “It’s difficult to hear all that. We fully support the grand jury indictment.”
An attorney for the teen suspect did not immediately respond for comment on Thursday evening, the outlet reported.
