    Girl who killed baby at daycare heard demon's voice, court file says
    By Lynn Moore | lmoore8@mlive.com | Updated on August 17, 2017 at 12:03 PM | Posted on August 17, 2017 at 8:57 AM

    MUSKEGON, MI - An 8-year-old girl who killed a toddler at a Muskegon daycare home earlier this year suffers from "serious mental health" issues that include hearing the voice of a demon, according to court documents.

    (. . .)

    The petition asks the court to make the girl a temporary ward of the state and to "make an appropriate decision regarding placement of (the girl) that protects her brother and other children." The best placement is "Hawthorne Child Psychiatric Hospital," the petition states. Hawthorn Center is a state-run residential psychiatric facility in Northville that treats children and adolescents.

    (. . .)

    The girl told investigators that "she hears a white demon talking to her and telling her to do something and a white guy telling her not to do something," the petition states.

    "She indicates she sees these figures and hears them frequently. She also reports hearing a 'red voice' that tells her to do bad things like pinch or bite her brother."

    (. . .)

    Mmmmmphf -- This could actually be the real thing on the part of this 8-year-old. Although this type of psychosis does not often manifest itself so soon and so violently in young children, her case could be a severe one. And, IMO, she does need immediate and intensive treatment from a staff who is good at this kind of sickness, and the sooner the better. She is suffering (if this is real) and so are so many others around her. I wonder if she had been at the daycare long enuff for someone to notice her sickness. Oh, this is a bad situation for everyone.

    Form of synesthesia?

    Fascinatingly tragic. For so many people. Talk about ripples with this one...

    From the above article:

    Following Korey's death, the girl lit a couch on fire in her home - something she said the "red demon" told her to do, the petition states.

    She has had numerous suspensions from school for such activity as hitting a lunch aide, fighting, using a chair to hurt another student, stealing and intentionally making herself vomit, the petition states. The school provided her with intensive services, the petition says.

    Her mother reports the girl "is destructive at home and has intentionally broken furniture and other objects in the home" and that her "anger is very rapid and she becomes physically aggressive."

    She had been "acting out" at daycare and picking on the younger children, the petition states.

    It sounds like there were signs. It's sad it had to get this far.
