Her little body was found stuffed in a recycle bin…SMH.
And two teenage brother’s, age 15 and 17, are being held by Police and face multiple charges including murder, conspiracy to commit murder, disposing of a body, theft, and tampering with a body. All of this was over their dumb azz scheme to steal parts from her BMX bike.
The boys’ Mom helped Police and turned in evidence from one of her son’s Facebook pages.
According to The Daily Mail:
Two teenage brothers were charged with murdering 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale after luring her into their house so they could steal parts from her BMX bicycle, authorities said today.
Autumn, whose body was found stuffed in a household recycling bin late Monday night after she vanished over the weekend, was promised parts for her bike by the two, authorities said, but the teenagers were really plotting to steal parts from her model.
The stunning development in the case came after the boys’ own mother turned them in when she noticed a suspicious posting on one of her son’s Facebook pages, Gloucester County prosecutor Sean Dalton said at a news conference.
Police also revealed they believe Autumn was killed by strangulation, and there were no signs of sexual assault. Dalton added Autumn, who was riding her bike at the time she disappeared was lured to the boys’ house, where belongings including her bicycle were found.
Three teenage brothers live at the home, neighboring teens told the Associated Press. Neither of the two arrested were named by Dalton.
The house was a place where teens frequently hung out and had parties, some neighbors said, and one of the brothers often bought and sold BMX bicycle parts, the teenagers said.
Autumn’s body was found around 10 p.m. Monday in the bin just blocks from her house and from Borough Hall, where thousands of people gathered earlier in the evening for a tearful candlelight vigil to pray for her safe return.
An autopsy released today revealed that Autumn died from ‘blunt force trauma, consistent with strangulation,’ Dalton said.
Autumn, whose 13th birthday would have been next Monday, was last seen around 12.30pm on Saturday pedaling her white bicycle away from the Clayton home where she lives with her father, her two siblings, her father’s girlfriend, and the girlfriend’s children.
A life for bike parts? We hope they both get life for taking this girl too soon.
