Default Boy, 8, accused of intentionally killing 87-year-old woman in Louisiana

It just keeps getting crazier:

Quote:
An 8-year-old boy intentionally shot and killed an 87-year-old woman at their home in Slaughter, La., authorities said Friday.

"Although the juvenile initially told investigators that he accidentally shot the victim while playing with a firearm, the investigation has led investigators to believe that the 8-year-old intentionally shot Mrs. Smothers in the back of the head as she sat in her living room watching television," sheriff's officials said in a statement.

The old lady was his primary care giver, but the kid goes back to his parents. Sounds kinda fishy to me. Why weren't his parents raising him?

Also, he is so young he will never see the inside of a prison, so we will have a killer on the loose until he is of age. I would almost bet that before he is 18 he will kill again.

Then again somebody might end his life and do everyone a favor.

Some people are already jumpin' on the "violent video game" bandwagon because earlier in the day the kid was plain' Grand Theft Auto IV.
