12-year-old brother charged in stabbing death of 8-year-old California girl

Posted by   + Show Post

I just saw this sad update. :(

Did you suspect he might be involved from when the initial reports came out? Or find this to be a total shock?

Either way, it's just really awful for the family. I can't imagine what the parents are going through.

This, exactly.

What a little monster. I feel for the parents.


Quoting DestinyHLewis:

Sadly I thought he was the culprit from the begining. I honestly thought authorities said he wasn't a suspect to make sure they could get any information out of him, and make sure he nor his greiving parents, didn't go on guard.

Same here.

Quoting popomill:

That's so messed up. I'm assuming this has been going on for a while? I've been out of touch with the news world lately.

I can't imagine the pain and agony the parents are going through right now.  What the hell happened here?  This boy is 12 years old.  We have no details at this point, but even if he were fighting with his sister, how does it escalate into grabbing a knife and stabbing her to death?  A boy that age knows right from wrong and that a knife can cause death.  I'm at a loss.

I'm not surprised in the least. When I saw the original report I just had a feeling that the brother might have had something to do with it. I don't know why it was just one of those weird feelings.

honestly, it didn't occur to me in the beginning. Then I spoke with a few friends who live in that area, and that was their first thought. Nothing else added up. They just wondered how he would have cleaned up so fast- I guess we'll find out. They must have had some evidence to arrest him, I suppose. The news just said he'd been arrested.
