    From the article you linked, it appears that this girl has a troubled history:

    Possibly this girl may have some similarities to Alyssa Bustamante (the teen who murdered Elizabeth Olten)?

    Then again, with her being found 'walking down the street nearby covered in blood', it seems entirely possible she had some kind of break with reality. Hard to say at this point.

    Is it possible that none of the kids ever told the grandmother about the knife? Hard to believe, but I guess you never know.

    Also from your link:

    Yeah, they need to do a mental health evaluation on this girl before they make any decisions on how to proceed in court. Sounds to me like she might be a good candidate for a lifelong stay at a mental health facility.

    It's amazing really what kids will keep to themselves until after it's too late. (Heck, adults too for that matter)

    I couldn't figure out if the neighbor was saying they looked at her and got the lost look after the stabbing or before?
