Teen Stabs Grandma 100 Times, Shoots Her In Head With Crossbow
On Tuesday, 19-year-old Florida resident Jasper Aristotle Smiddie went to his father and confessed that he “did something stupid.”
That “something stupid” was stabbing his grandmother 100 times, hitting her in the face with a wrench, and shooting her in the head with a crossbow.
(Usually, when I say I “did something stupid,” I mean something like, I accidentally threw a red shirt in with a white load of laundry, or left the coffee maker on all day. Not, oops, I just murdered grandma.)
After Jasper Aristotle Smiddie (best name ever?) confessed his crime over the phone, his dad called the police, who then arrested the guy the following day.
While Smiddie told his father that he "blacked out and woke up 2 hours later with blood all over his hands and his grandmother," investigators contend that Smiddie knew exactly what he was doing.
They believe he originally planned to kill his uncle, whom he desperately hated for some unknown reason. Then he thought better of it, and decided that killing the man would let him off too easy. So he decided to kill his grandma, Gloria Helfrich, in order to make his uncle live with pain and sorrow.
That’s pretty much all we know for now. But rest assured, I’m sure the producers over at NBC’s Dateline are already planning to do a two hour special on this twisted case.
