Although most children are harmless, innocent and cute, there are some kids out there who, for one reason or another, commit crimes so atrocious that they leave us stunned and speechless. When you think of a child, the last thing you think of is murder. Some notorious child murderers are:
- Mary Bell,
- Andrew Golden,
- Mitchell Johnson.
It’s hard to picture a child as anything less than innocent and harmless. The kids on this list will have you second guessing all that you may have thought about the innocence of children.
Here are the top 10 youngest murderers to have ever killed.
1. When Alyssa Bustamante was 15 years old, she murdered her half sister’s 9-year-old friend Elizabeth Olten. Alyssa led the little girl into the woods where she had dug two graves. She strangled the girl, slit her throat and wrists, and left her in the grave.
Alyssa later went home and talked about it in a diary entry, where she wrote: “It was amazing.”
2. Joshua Phillips was a 14-year-old boy from Jacksonville Florida. In 1998, he murdered his 8-year-old neighbor, Maddie Clifton.
Soon after Maddie Clifton went missing, Joshua’s mother spent a day cleaning her son’s room. She found a leak in Joshua’s waterbed, and upon taking a closer look she found the dead body of Maddie Clifton. The little girl had been stabbed and also suffered severe blunt force trauma to the head. Joshua Phillips was charged with murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
