This is just terrible. And sick.
15-year-old Alyssa Bustamante of Jefferson City, Missouri killed her 9-year-old neighbor Elizabeth Olten because "she wanted to know what it felt like."
Bustamante disturbingly described how she strangled the young girl, then stabbed her in the chest and slashed her throat at hearing today.
Ugh. It was so hard just type those words out.
Before a judge, Bustamante admitted to the Oct. 21, 2009 killing, replying, "Yes," when the judge asked her if she understood that she was giving up her right to a trial. Then, she was asked to describe what happened.
"I strangled her and stabbed her in the chest," she told the judge.
"Did you cut her throat too?” the judge asked.
"Yes," Bustamante responded.
After two days of searching by volunteers, Bustamante finally led the police to her body.
She pleaded guilt to second-degree murder and will be turning 18 on Jan. 28.
Absolutely terrible. We just have no words for something like this.
