The last thing you would be wondering when you are fifteen is what it feels like to kill, right? Evidently not for Alyssa Bustamante, she’s pleaded guilty to murdering her 9 year old neighbor Elizabeth Olten in 2009. Bustamante from Missouri strangled, stabbed and then cut the girl’s throat because she wanted to know how it felt. She told the judge yesterday she was knew what she was doing when she murdered Elizabeth. Hmm, that was pretty evident by the fact Bustamante had dug a grave a week before the killing, in preparation.
Psst If Bustamante hadn’t pleaded guilty and the case went to trial she could have been facing life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted. This way she is facing 10-30 or life with the possibility of parole.
Thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the killer tornado which hit Missouri yesterday. Many of our regulars have family and friends in those towns, including Sekan Blunt Delivery and Mel. The number of injured has climbed to 1200 with the fear the death toll will exceed 120 with many believed still trapped under the rubble . The worst hit was Joplin where the tornado cut a path that was nearly six miles long & half a mile wide through the heart of the town destroying everything in its wake. The hospital took a direct hit and has been forced to close.
Psst For those who would like to help, please send donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, or call 1-800-REDCROSS.
OK, no need to panic people, but if you happen to live in Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois or Wisconsin you’re pretty damn lucky that big friggin meteor didn’t clean knock you off your porch. It lit up the night sky like a Christmas tree and rattled rooftops before breaking up into tiny, weeny pieces (we hope!).
