Natural Born Killers

Natural Born Killers

Last year, four young men, on a pre-dawn joyride, brutally murdered a young mother and seriously injured her eleven-year-old daughter. The boys-at the time 17, 18 and 19 years-old-planned their crime, set out that night with the express purpose of killing innocent people. The driver carried a machete, another boy a four-inch foldable knife. When the teens broke into the house, selected at random, their victims lay asleep in their beds.

‘It was just a game,’ the ringleader, now on trial for first-degree murder, told a friend afterward. ‘It was fun.’
