I think I had only and maybe heard a blip about this case. I just watched a podcast of Linda - It's a Crime which I will share here. Tyson Draper asked her to cover it and I know Tyson spends time in AZ. Interestingly, when I did a quick internet search after watching Linda's podcast, I am not seeing much on this crime for news of any kind but I did not yet look in depth.
One key thing is there is a very, very clear photo of one of the alleged suspects right after the murder at a gas...

To start. I have always found Serial Killers fascinating. What makes them do what they do?. I know I am not the only one. This is the place to talk about it. I'll start. Who do you find the most fascinating and why?.
This is one of those child cases that are hard to read about. However, for some reason it is not getting much MSM coverage and little from Youtubers as well, I am unsure why since it certainly has, sadly, the elements to make it major news. It is not a new case but again, it is not getting a whole lot of coverage.
This article today is not the start of the case by any means. It does give a bit of a recap though. Read to the ending, the end says plenty about the two charged just with...

I have seen this a couple of times and I would suggest watching it as a very controversial case of the right to defend one's own property or self. Had the homeowner not recorded himself or done or went as far as he did, I think the outcome would have been far different. However, the fact remains had these teenagers stayed off of other people's property and not broken in, they would be alive today. I myself have varying opinions on it. It is an interesting case, I have watched it a few...
