Neighbors: Elizabeth's friends' home was searched

We’re learning more about the 15 year old suspect, who is reportedly a girl, accused of killing 9 year old Elizabeth Olten. KMIZ is reporting that the home searched shortly after the body was found is the same home where the teen suspect lives. Yesterday we learned from neighbors that police searched the home of Elizabeth’s friend she was last seen playing with. So what’s the connection? Police won’t say, but some reports, including one from Good Morning America and ABC news, suggest that the teen suspect is actually the big sister of Elizabeth’s friend.

Cops will not reveal how Elizabeth was killed, but are seeking first degree murder charges against the teen. A hearing was held this morning where a juvenile court judge was scheduled to hear arguments as to why the teen suspect should be allowed to go home until the next hearing in the case in November.

Nancy Grace Cold Cases: Sneak Preview!

12-year-old Johnny Gosch disappeared on his newspaper delivery route early Sunday morning on September 5, 1982. Johnny’s story is full of twists and turns.

We Want Justice: Burned Alive Over a Video Game?

ALT TEXT

Just a few days ago, Michael Brewer was a normal 15 year old boy who loved video games and hanging out with his friends. But now, he’s gone from innocent middle school student to a young boy fighting for his life in a Florida hospital, after being burned over 80% of his body. The horrific crime allegedly set in motion after Brewer borrowed video game money from a friend and didn’t return it. According to cops, as payback, Brewer’s 15 year old friend steals a suped-up custom bike, owned by Brewer’s father. The alleged 15 year old thief is arrested when Brewer calls the cops to report the bike stolen. The arrest spreads like melting butter across Deerfield Beach Middle school. And that’s when things quickly turn sour.

On Monday, October 12, Brewer waits for friends in the parking lot of the Lime Tree apartment complex in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Fearful of retaliation, Brewer misses school that day. But cutting classes does him no good. He’s suddenly blindsided and cornered by a mob of 5 young boys, his own school mates. The alleged mastermind, fresh out of jail, throws out words like “snitch” and “pour it on him”. Moments later, Brewer is showered with rubbing alcohol and a lighter thrown in his direction…instantly the helpless 15 year old is on fire. Police say all five heartless suspects just stand there and watch! A quick thinking Brewer manages to rip off his shirt and dive into a nearby pool and a terrified neighbor runs out with a fire extinguisher to help put out the flames.
