    As a 7th grader I can confirm that this act of violence wasn’t a misunderstanding he knew it exactly what he was doing and the fact that he kept making fun of the situation on social media is absolutely horrific. My heart goes out to the victim’s family. God bless them

    Stabbed 114 times?! That’s unreal! My heart goes out to Tristyn and may she rest easy💙 As for the suspect who slain her, may he be filled with regret for what he did.

    I remember when his and his friends instagram pages were still up. His friends posted things like “free him” and joking about her death. It’s obvious they feel no remorse for what they have done and given the opportunity they would do it again. I’m so happy he’s off the streets and she got her justice. RIP Tristyn.
  • 114 stab wounds!? Seriously!? This is just absolutely horrifying and disgusting, no child should have their life taken away, she was only 14 years old, she had her whole life in front of her, what a beautiful girl, this breaks my heart. Prayers go out to her grieving family 💔 RIP Tristyn, you will always be in our hearts 💕

    Stabbing someone 114 times and showing no regret at 14 really shows how evil some people can be. Its truly horrifying at what a young age a human can be formed to such an extent to do such thing.

    This why I tell people that there's a difference between Children biologically and Teenagers biologically. A big difference. A teenager can know very well what they're doing and therefore be irrefutably guilty of said crime. This is a good example here. A sentence given that's well deserved for him.

    I remember this! I was hoping his mom was charged too. She obviously knew what happened and helped hide evidence. The video of her running around their house helping wash his clothes and stuff was sickening. I know you never stop being a parent, but how can you sleep at night knowing your son, a psychopath, was under your roof?

    It's about time that the law actually worked! RIP Tristyn. Prayers for this family who I know is still going through horrible grief.

    Aiden's parents were not even worried about what he did to Tristyn they just were worried about him getting caught. That's how you know all crimes start with the family

    Anyone who has been through the school system knows how truly evil and despicable some teenagers can be.

    13 years old. Such a brief life. What a tragedy!! I have a 13 year old daughter and I couldn't imagine going through what this family is going through. My condolences to the family.

    His parents only concern was his social media post and not that he murdered!!!🤯
  • Tommy Brown
    That girl was loved very much by so many, especially her family. It's such a horrible thing to know that your loved one suffered immensely and then murdered

    114 stab wounds and 49 were defensive. She was fighting for her life. May you rest in peace Tristyn.

    I saw this 2 years ago, when her family was still trying to get justice for her. I'm so glad he's finally gotten what he deserved.

    how do you even manage to stab someone 114 times? why does someone even want to stab that many times for a non-personal reason?
  • angel91485
    I remember what I did when I was 14, even 12 or 13...yes he knew what he was doing...he deserved what he got, glad he wasn't treated as a minor.
