True Crime

bookcover
Author: Robert Remington Sherri Zickefoose

On April 26, 2006 the bodies of Marc and Debra along with their 8 year old son, Jacob were found with multiple stab wounds. Where was their 12 year old daughter, JR? Investigators found out that JR had a disturbing alter ego online and called herself, Runaway Devil. The 12 year old had a 23 year old boyfriend and together they enjoyed a fondness for the dark side and the Goth culture. Shocking evidence in the girl's school locker led police to discover that she manipulated her boyfriend into killing her family and was the one who killed her own little brother. The final chapters told readers of the trial and how the jury did not believe the girl's story. 12 year old JR was the youngest person ever convicted of murder in Canada.
