An innocent face like that of an angel and evil deeds like that of a devil. These killer kids didn't play with dolls or other toys in their childhood but shot other kids with guns or slashed with knives.
We always believe children are the little angels and a god’s beautiful creation. These sweet, innocent beings are a blessing who spread moments of joy wherever they are. But they can even turn into true devils if they have abusive parents or they experience extreme mental torture or they witness something horrendous in their tender years of childhood. They can become so mentally deficient that they can brutally stab and shoot other kids to death.
Let’s know about some of the most evil kids in history.
Jesse Pomeroy was a 14-year-old boy who was convicted of brutally murdering a 4-year-old boy in 1874. He stabbed and slashed his victim to death and his body was found in a nearby swamp.
And that wasn’t the beginning of his atrocities, he had even tortured many boys three years ago for which he was even tried and sentenced to reform school. Getting an early release, he then kidnapped, mutilated and killed the 10-year-old girl who visited his mother’s store. He buried her in his mother’s basement.
And, he was aptly nicknamed as ‘The Boston Boy Fiend’, ‘The Boy Torturer’, ‘The Demon’ and ‘The Red Devil’.
Mary Bell (nicknamed as The Tyneside Strangler) was convicted of manslaughter and had strangled 4-year-old Martin Brown and 3-year-old Brian Howe in a house in 1968. One day before her 11the birthday on 25 May 1968, she committed her first crime and the second on 31 July, 1968.
According to the police reports, she mutilated him and even carved an “M” into the victim’s stomach. She was sentenced to 12-year imprisonment on 17 December, 1968. The court-appointed psychiatrists reported that she displayed “classic signs of psychopathy”.
Joshua Phillips is an American murderer who was convicted of killing his 8-year-old neighbour Maddie Clifton when he was a 14-year-old kid. In November 1988, he stabbed his victim to death using a baseball bat and knife. Supposedly, Josh’s such behavior was because of his abusive father.
Currently serving a sentence of lifetime imprisonment without parole, Clifton’s heinous killing was featured in Season 2 premiere episode “Foul Ball & Framed” of Killer Kids. Also, this murder became the subject of national TV coverage and a documentary on 48 Hours entitled "Why did Josh Kill?" was also made on it.
At the age of 15, Kipland Kenkel was an evicted school student who murdered his own parents at first and was even involved in the school shooting at Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon. Two students Ben Walker and Mikael Nickolauson were shot dead and 25 others were left wounded. He displayed signs of paranoid schizophrenia which became clear only after his trial. He is currently serving a 111-year sentence without the possibility of parole.
His classmates used to describe him as strange, morbid, psychotic and schizoid. Once on a trip to Disneyland, he said that he wanted to “punch Mickey Mouse in the nose”. He even gave a “how to” speech on bomb making in his class.
Michael Carneal was the 14-year-old child perpetrator of the Heath High School shooting in Kentucky. On 1 December 1997, he reached school at 7.45 AM with various rifles in his backpack. Firing 8 rounds in fast succession on a group of praying students, he killed 3 girls and caused 5 non-fatal injuries. In October 1998, his plea of guilty (due to mental condition) was accepted on the condition that he would receive a life sentence with possibility of parole in 25 years.
