Top 10 Kids Who Have Committed Horrific Murders

When people think of horrific crimes, they don't usually think of children as the accused. Here are chilling crimes committed by the following real-life children.
The Top Ten
1 Jon Venables and Robert Thompson

In 1993, 2-year-old James Bulger was snatched from his mother at a shopping center by a pair of 10-year-olds, leading him to nearby train tracks, where he was dropped on his head, beaten with an iron bar, sexually assaulted, and was left there to die. He was mutilated so badly, his autopsy couldn't reveal his actual cause of death.

Two decades later, Venables is still a massive POS, and in addition to never showing remorse about Bulger, also indulges in looking child pornography. The guy has to be a psychopath.

A baby killed by 10 year old children? What in the hell has this world come to?

I heard of this before. I also heard they sexually assaulted James

2 Mary Bell

On the day before her 11th birthday, in May 1968, Mary Bell strangled four-year-old boy Martin Brown in an abandoned house, and then broke into an orphanage and vandalized it a short time later, leaving notes claiming responsibility for Brown's slaying. The police just assumed it was a prank.
Then, a month later joined by a friend, the pair took and terminated a three-year-old boy named Brian Howe in the same area as the first killing, and returned the body - but not before carving an “M” into his stomach, as well as scratching his legs and mutilating his private parts.
Mary was convicted of manslaughter and was held until the age of 23. She was granted to have her own anonymity, which has also been extended to protect the identity of her daughter. As a result, any court order that permanently protects someone's identity is known as a "Mary Bell order".

Why kill an innocent 4 year old?

Well, she, the killer, was psychopathic. Her past may have also been the reason why she is the way she is.

She killed a 12 year old in Ohio

I can’t believe even kids would commit murders. Their parents should’ve probably isolated them.

Their parents may be the reason these kids got like this in the first place.

3 Sandra and Beth Andersen (The Bathtub Girls)

Discontented, sisters "Sandra," 16, and "Beth," 15, scoured the Internet, looking for advice on how the get rid of their mother. They believed that by killing their mother, they would be entitled to insurance money and would get 68 thousand dollars each. They got their mom drunk, gave her six Tylenol 3 tablets, and, when their mother is finally sedated, they prepared the warm bath and got her in the bathtub. The older sister then forced her head under the water and did not let go until she was lifeless.

After having killed their mother, the siblings, along with their friends, celebrated at a nearby restaurant. Later that night, Sandra and Beth called 9-1-1 and informed them that they had found their mother lying in the bathtub. They were told by the operator to perform CPR, but the girls refused to cooperate. The victim's death was officially considered to be accidental, until a young male told police that one of the defendants had confessed to him at a party that she and her ...more

This is the most horrifying list I've read on this site yet.

4 Jesse Pomeroy

Jesse Pomeroy is alleged to have killed nine people, and he began to torture other children when he was only 11 years old. He was eventually caught, but once he was released, he took his beatings too far and killed a girl named Katie Curran, and threw her body in the basement of his mom's dress shop where it was later found.

5 Cindy Collier and Shirley Wolf

It was June 1983, and teenagers Cindy, 15, and Shirley, 14, were full of anger. Cindy was raped before her tenth birthday, while Shirley was raped by her father when she was just a child. As soon as they met, they formed a strong bond.
After only a few hours from meeting, the pair decided to knock from door to door at Collier’s condominium development in Auburn, California, hoping that someone will come enter. Many senior citizens were not fooled and felt suspicious when they met the girls, but unfortunately Anna Brackett, 85 years old, wanted to help these two girls who asked to use her phone and allowed them to enter, unaware that it would cost her her life. Thinking that the time has come to act, the pair attacked the lady, with Wolf grabbing Brackett by the throat and throwing her to the floor, and repeatedly stabbing her neck for around 28 times. After the murder, the pair went to Cindy's house where Shirley wrote in her diary:
"Today we killed an old lady. It was ...more

Well, having a traumatic thing happen to you still doesn’t justify committing a horrific crime.

6 Josh Phillips

The event happened when Phillips, who was 14 years old at the time, was home alone and Maddie came to his house inviting him to come outside and play with her. Even though he wasn't allowed to have friends over while his parents weren't home, Phillips agreed. As the pair were playing baseball, Phillips accidentally caused the ball to hit Maddie’s eye and caused it to bleed. She began crying and screaming, and, knowing that his father would be home soon, he decided to drag Maddie into his house and take her to his room, where he attempted to take her down with a phone cord for approximately 15 minutes. Thereafter, he hit her again with the baseball bat and stuffed her under the base of his bed, and after discovering that Maddie was still alive, he proceeded to remove the mattress and stab her 11 times, killing her. After a week, Maddie's body was found when Phillips's mom noticed a strange smell coming from his room. Phillips was later arrested and is now serving a life sentence.

Why the heck would you kill someone because you accidentally broke their eye? Wouldn't it make more sense to just suffer the consequences for disobeying than to commit murder?

His father was abusive, and he feared what his father might do to him when he finds out. Some kids here turned out this way because of their parents, apparently. You do have a point there, though.

7 Barry Dale Loukaitis

In February 1996, 14-year-old Barry Dale Loukaitis walked into his algebra classroom dressed as though he was from the Wild West, where he shot and took down two students and his Algebra teacher. He then held the class hostage for an hour until a gym teacher showed up, wrestling Loukaitis to the ground until police arrived.

Man, some kid went and shout up his school thinking it was the Wild West? That’s like committing the mass murder of a 100 people thinking you’re in the Iraq War.

8 Eric Smith

In 1993, Eric Smith rode his bike to a summer day camp in a local park where he saw 4-year-old Derrick Robie walking alone to that same camp. Because he was being bullied by older children at school, he took his rage out on the kid by convincing the boy to follow him into a nearby wooded area, where he strangled him, smashed his head in with a large rock, undressed his body, and sodomized him with a tree limb. The cause of death was determined to be blunt trauma to the head with contributing asphyxia.

This kid grew up and he's really changed. What he did was a nightmare but now he deserves to be free.

9 Daniel Bartlam

In 2011, when he was 15 years old, Bartlam killed his own mom while she was sleeping by beating her with a hammer and then setting the house on fire. Initially, he claimed that a burglar had committed the crime, but as investigators searched through his computer, things like ‘how to get away with murder’ and other related topics were found on his search history. Because of the crime, he had been arrested and tried subsequently, and was sentenced to 16 years in a juvenile detention facility.

10 Alyssa Bustamante

In October 2009, 15-year-old Alyssa Bustamante had brutally killed her 9-year-old neighbor, Elizabeth Olten; she repeatedly stabbed her in the chest and sliced her on the throat. She left the body under a pile of leaves in a nearby forest, and later wrote in her diary:

"I just...killed someone...I don't know how to feel atm.It was ahmazing. As soon as you get over the 'ohmygawd I can't do this' feeling, it's pretty enjoyable. I'm kinda nervous and shaky though right now. Kay, I gotta go to church now...lol."

It was later revealed that Bustamonte dug two graves, which suggested that her twin brothers may have been the initial target.

She claimed her depression was the reason she did it

The Contenders
11 Mitchell Johnson and Andrew Golden

They were two middle schoolers who killed 5 people in their middle school in Arkansas in 1998. This was like what I consider Columbine before Columbine.

12 Eric Harris

What a loser this kid was

Eric or Dylan shouldn’t be on this list. They were 18 when they committed their murders.

13 Brenda Spencer

One of the first "school shooters", it's a miracle only 2 were killed. She opened fire on a playground full of children form her apartment across the street. "I don't like Mondays".

This was some girl who killed 2 people at some San Diego elementary school in like 1979.

Her quote "Mondays are hard" will haunt me forever

14 Peter Woodcock

He was 17 when he did murder in Toronto, ON and went on to be a child rapist

15 Dedrick Owens

This guy was 6 years old when he killed one of his classmates in a Michigan elementary school in 2000. Since he was too young, he hasn’t been charged for committing this act.

16 Nikolas Cruz Nikolas Jacob Cruz (born September 24, 1998) is an American mass murderer who committed the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018. 17 people were killed in the massacre, while 17 others were injured. It surpassed the 1999 Columbine High School shooting as the deadliest high school ...read more.

I feel sorry for the innocent lives that has been taken away from that Florida High School. Which happened on Valentine's Day 2018.

Autistic or not, it doesn't give this boy as an excuse to kill anyone!

Even though he shouldn’t be on this list, I’ll discuss about him anyway. So, what he did was kill 17 innocent people with a firearm as heartlessly as possible. I’m glad he’s suffering in jail. I hope he gets the death penalty.

18-19 year olds AREN'T kids!

17 Peter Kurten

Even before his killing spree as an adult, Kurten had already killed two boys when he was 9/10 via drowning them when they were on a river trip.

18 Dylan Klebold Dylan Bennet Klebold was an American mass murderer. He was one of the Columbine High School shooters, along with Eric Harris.

Was 17 when he and Eric Harris shot up Columbine High school

Shouldn’t be on this list
