    Oh wow... I wonder what happened. Did she know the girl, or was this a random thrill-kill?

    Seems the little girl was called Katie.

    The youngster was discovered in a grassy alleyway in an affluent suburb of York and later died in hospital. A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said officers arrested a teenage girl following the incident, which happened close to a property in Alness Drive, York - a cul-de-sac lined with detached houses.

    Can't see anything hinting at that now? Has it been removed/edited?

    Interesting, yes it was in both the headline and the article, but was in " " each time.

    So.... either it was totally wrong information, or we're about to hear that the teenager can't be identified for legal reasons.

    My guess is the latter. It sounds like Katies mom was first on the scene, perhaps the 15 year old told her what happened.

    Awful, any way you look at it.

    This just makes no sense at all. Hope we get some info explaining some of this.

    I read the earlier telegraph piece too which said they were sisters. It would make sense given the time of day, perhaps coming home from school. I used to live in woodthorpe. It's not an affluent area as stated in the press but more an average seventies estate of semi detached homes but surrounded by several large council estates. The kids play on the fields at the back
