Sinister and disturbing crimes occur each day. There are always new stories about crimes and abuse from every part of the country. The media grabs hold of these stories because, unfortunately, tragedy sells better than happiness. What is really worrying is that young individuals are involved. You could even say that a substantial number of kids nowadays are at all not the little angels they should be. For example, take the case of James Bulger, who was only three years old, when two ten-year olds abducted and brutally killed him in 1993. People all over the world were horrified by the savage act and did not understand how such a thing could happen.
In fact, stories like these are nothing new – history remembers a lot of similar cases.
Most recent shootings in schools were committed by kids. In fact, there are similar stories all through history.
Such as Mary Bell fifty years ago, Jesse Pomeroy a century and half ago, and even in the mid-18th century there was a ten-year old murderer by the name of William York.
You can bet there were some even before that, and there will certainly be more to come in future. Kids killing and committing shocking crimes. Let’s check out 15 of the worst child crimes below.
