The top 10 most evil Killer Kids
1. Mary Bell
Mary Bell was a little girl who came from a very bad home. Her mother was an alcoholic and her father was mostly absent. She was abused and neglected for most of her life. When she was 11 years old, she strangled a little boy named Martin Brown to death and left his body on a patch of wasteland.
Not long afterwards, she broke into a school with her friend Norma and the two girls left anonymous notes with bizarre messages like “I murder so that I may come back” and “We murder. Watch out… There are murders about. We murdered Martin brown”.
A few months later, Mary strangled another little boy to death. Norma was probably involved as well. They carved the letter “M” on his stomach. Mary turned up at the boy’s house and asked his mother if she could see him in his coffin and started laughing at his funeral.
The police grew suspicious and arrested the two girls. Mary wouldn’t admit to anything, but Norma told the police what she knew. The two girls were tried for murder. Mary Bell was found guilty and went to prison.
At the age of 23, she was released and the police gave her a new identity. Since then, she has lived a normal life and has children of her own.
2. Nevada Tan
Nevada Tan is the nickname of an 11-year old Japanese girl who murdered her classmate. Her real identity is supposed to be kept secret. She had some sort of disagreement with a girl in her class, so during lunch break, she brought the girl into an empty room and cut her throat with a knife. Afterwards, she went back to her classroom covered in bloodstains. Her classmates flew into a panic and her teacher called the police.
She was arrested and when the police asked her why she had done such a horrible thing, Nevada Tan said the dead girl had posted messages on her website saying she was overweight and calling her a goody-two-shoes. According to reports, Nevada Tan’s website was based on the Japanese urban legend “The Red Room”. Nevada Tan was sent to prison. She was probably released in 2013.
3. Jasmine Richardson
Jasmine Richardson was a normal 12-year old girl from Alberta, Canada. She got involved in the goth scene, started dressing in black and wearing garish makeup. On the internet, Jasmine used the nickname “runawaydevil” and her profile said, “Welcome to my tragic end.”
She became an out-of-control tween, sneaking out to go to concerts without her parents’ knowledge. She also had a boyfriend who was 23 years old and he told people he was a 300-year-old werewolf. When her parents found out, they grounded her and forbid her from seeing him.
One night, while her parents were asleep, she let her boyfriend into her house. He stabbed her parents to death while she murdered her 8-year old brother. Afterwards, they tried to flee, but the police found the pair the next day and arrested them. While they were in custody, Steinke asked Jasmine to marry him via text message and she accepted.
Jasmine was found guilty and sentenced to ten years in prison. Her boyfriend was given three life sentences. Since then, Jasmine has been released and has expressed remorse for her crimes.
4. Graham Young
Graham Young had always been interested in Chemistry. He was especially fascinated by poisons. By the time he was 14, he knew more about chemistry than a college graduate and he had learned it all from reading library books.
What did Graham do with all this knowledge? He began poisoning his own family. His father and sister became extremely sick and his stepmother died. A teacher searched his locker and, after finding a bottle of poison and various writings about killing people, called the police.
Graham was sent to a maximum security mental hospital, but even that wasn’t enough to stop him. He began posioning the staff and his fellow inmates. At the age of 23, the doctors said he was cured and released him. He went to live with his sister and got a job.
Did Graham turn his life around and become a productive member of society? Of course not. He began posioning his co-workers. Eventually, he was caught and sent back to prison where he died of a heart attack. The newspapers gave him the nickname, “The Teacup Poisoner”. There is a great movie about him called “The Young Poisoner’s Handbook”.
5. Daniel Petry
This happened in Brazil. Daniel Petry was 16 years old and his friend Gabriel Kuhn was 12. The boys were both fans of an online role-playing game called “Tibia”.
Gabriel wanted to progress in his game but he was short on game money so he asked his buddy Daniel Petry if he could borrow 20,000 Tibia money from his account. Daniel transferred the requested funds to Gabriel’s account but said he wanted it back later. This is where the story becomes pretty messed up.
Gabriel refused to pay him back and Daniel got very upset. He went to his friend’s house amd ended up strangling him to death. Daniel wanted to cover up the crime and decided to hide the body in the attic. However, it was too heavy to lift, so he fetched a saw and cut the boy’s body in two. This proved to be very messy and it was still too heavy to lift. He didn’t have time to clean up, so Daniel just left.
Later that day, when Gabriel’s mother came home, she walked into the hallway and found her son’s body cut in half and lying in a pool of blood.
Daniel was arrested and he claimed that the online game had driven him crazy and made him commit the murder. He was sent to prison.
6. Robert Thompson and Jon Venables
Robert Thompson and Jon Venables were 10 years old. One morning, they both ditched school and went to a shopping center. They wanted to cause trouble so they kidnapped a little boy named James Bulger. They brought him to a deserted area where they threw bricks at him and beat him repeatedly with a metal bar. They left his body on a train tracks.
When the little boy’s body was found, it had been run over by a train and cut in half. The community was outraged and the police started a nationwide search for his murderers. The boys had been captured on CCTV kidnapping Jamie and the police eventually tracked them down and arrested them. Under questioning, the boys tried to lie, but eventually they confessed to their crime.
They were tried as adults and sentenced to life in prison. As of today, one of them has been released and the other is still in prison.
7. Brenda Spencer
Brenda Spencer had always been a bit of a misfit. She was small, thin, unattractive and had a lot of discipline problems. She lived across the road from her school.
One Monday morning, she took a gun and started shooting at the children who were standing outside the school. She injured 8 children and killed two adults who were trying to help them.
She barricaded herself in her house and told police she was going to come out shooting. When journalists asked her why she had committed the crime, she replied, “I Don’t Like Mondays”. Eventually, Brenda Spencer gave up and was arrested by police. She was sent to prison and will probably never be released.
Afterwards, Bob Geldof wrote a hit song about her called “I Don’t Like Mondays”.
“And nobody’s gonna go to school today,
She’s going to make them stay at home.
And daddy doesn’t understand it,
He always said she was as good as gold.
And he can see no reasons
‘Cos there are no reasons
What reason do you need to be shown?
Tell me why. I don’t like Mondays.
Tell me why. I don’t like Mondays.
Tell me why. I don’t like Mondays.
I want to shoot the whole day down.”
8. Joshua Phillips
Joshua Phillips seemed like a normal 14-year old boy. One day, he was playing with an 8-year old girl named Maddie who lived on his street. For some reason, he beat her with his baseball bat, dragged her up to his bedroom and stabbed her to death. Then, he stuffed her body under his bed.
The police combed the area, looking for the missing girl. Neighbors helped in the search. Joshua even pretended to search for her. The search ended when his mother was cleaning his room one morning. She noticed something under his bed. When she pulled it out, she realized it was Maddie’s dead body.
His mother immediately called the police and Josh was arrested. He was tried as an adult and sentenced to life in prison. There are no plans to ever release him.
