Teen girl charged with eight felonies for “kill list” found on her phone

On Thursday, Florida authorities said they arrested a 14-year-old girl at a Port St. Lucie school and charged her with eight felony counts of written threats. The girl had a “kill list” containing eight names saved on her phone.

Brian Hester, the chief deputy sheriff, explained, “After an anonymous tip on Tuesday afternoon, school faculty notified deputies of a list of eight juveniles’ names on [her] phone that she had labeled as a ‘kill list.’ The parents of these juveniles have been contacted.”

Hester stated that no firearms were discovered at the child’s residence. However, the situation was regarded as “deplorable.”

According to police, cocaine and drug paraphernalia were in plain sight. After a check of the home, the teen’s mother, 40, was arrested and charged with child neglect, possession of cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hester said, “We are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our children and continue to work diligently with St. Lucie Public Schools to do so. It is also imperative for parents to provide a safe home environment for their children and to talk to their children about the dangers of written and verbal threats in school settings as well as the consequences of their actions.”

According to investigators, the girl was a student at West Gate K-8 School in Port St. Lucie, which is about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach. She was taken to a juvenile justice department and processed. Her mother was arrested and taken to the county prison, where she was detained on a $6,250 bond, police said.

The family of the accused could not be reached for comment.
