15yr old Alyssa Bustamante Indicted for 1st Degree Murder of 9yr old Elizabeth Olten


After weeks of rumors and speculation, the name and face of the person who murdered 9 yr old Elizabeth Olten in cold blood is announced to the world.


Alyssa Bustamante: portrait of a troubled teen

Alyssa Bustamante will stand trial as an adult for the murder of Elizabeth Olten. Court documents said that Bustamante allegedly strangled, stabbed and cut Olten’s throat on Oct. 21 — the day Elizabeth went missing. She also is charged with armed criminal action for using a knife in the attack.

It was probably the crime blogs worst kept secret as it had been speculated from the minute that Elizabeth Olten’s body was found and that an unnamed 15 year old was charged with the crime.  Alyssa Bustamante’s name came on the radar as an obvious suspect in the crime of first missing, then murdered Elizabeth Olten. No one wanted to publically say any thing as she was a minor.



But there is also a troubled side to this teen.

Her You Tube page lists her hobbies as “killing people and cutting.”

In fact, juvenile court says they have had to trim her fingernails because she was using them to cut-up her arms.

She also tried to commit suicide in September 2007 and was hospitalized. Alyssa then received intense, sometimes daily therapy since that incident.

She has also been taking Prozac to combat her depression.

Alyssa’s Twitter page shows what some call “dark” postings, talking about bad decisions and be buried.

Juvenile court officials said during Wednesday’s hearing that Alyssa went through a short gothic phase, dressing in all black clothes, last year while attending Simonsen Ninth Grade Center.

      WHAT THE ?????????????? I am outraged. WHERE, DEAR LORD-were this Girl’s parents? Jesus! Help us! If this is an example and product of today’s youth (while not typical) that is one bad reflection upon the way some adults are parenting their offspring these days.

      WHERE WAS HER MOTHER OR FATHER—any ADULT while she was posting her insanity and vile images all over the web on her MySpace or Facebook pages????

      PLEASE TELL ME—-WHAT kind of PARENT overlooks the obvious signs of a teenager like this sending out all the warning signs and clues that she is FAR FROM NORMAL.

      WAKE UP AMERICA! While any child from a good home can definetly “go wrong” I can tell you this—I would sure as hell know WHAT (I snoop! YES THANK YOU, I DO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) my Son or Daughter is up to when they are in my home—or how they are acting WHEN THEY ARE NOT!

      WHERE WAS THIS GIRLS MOTHER??? What does she have to say about not intervening before an innocent CHILD’s life had to be sacrificed at the hands of this deranged Adolescent. I am so mad at this story. If I were the victims Mother- I would show up at every legal process/trial/hearing whatever! AND I WOULD BE BREATHING DOWN THIS MONSTER’s FAMILIES THROAT AND ASKING:

      “WHAT COULD YOU HAVE DONE TO AVOID THIS!” This is just unbelievable.

      RIP another innocent child! Damn! Makes you want to punch a wall!

      One child lost tragically; one child tragically lost.

      [...] year old Alyssa Bustamante has been indicted for 1st degree murder of 9 year old Elizabeth Olten. Why type of dark individual plots such an act and then follows [...]

      #3= Good! Sounds like that is where they belong. Is what you are trying to convey —-is that this teenager was a product of being brought up in a bad environment?? Ok. Let’s say that is the case then.

      WHERE IS THE HUMAN COMPASSION these days? You mean to tell me that there was not one decent role model available in this teen’s life to pick up on those obvious warning signs? SICK TO DEATH of adults who know something is wrong who stick their heads in the sand and do NOTHING. Oh,, Well—you say—they are afraid to speak up and go to the proper authorities because they don’t want a potential lawsuit ??? BS!



      This pisses me off to no end that not ONE PERSON could have simply picked up a phone, made an anonyomus call as a concerned citizen?

      This henious crime PERHAPS could have been avoided had someone, somewhere had the intestinal fortitude to DO THE RIGHT THING.

      If one bleeding heart Moonbat Lib comes on here and tries to come to the defense of this deranged Teenager-you leave yourself open to written attack from others. This kind of act is inexcusable.

      RIP….another child lost to a violent crime in America—at the hands of a demon of our own society! I would love to find out more about the losers who are her parents, too. If I find out what prison they are incarcerated in and I am in the middle of a bad day with a little extra time on my hands—think I will put some words down on paper to let them know they really, truly should take some blame and responsibility for the POOR JOB THEY DID RAISING THEIR OWN CHILD. In the end, and IMO—it all begins in the home.

      There is something seriously wrong with our society when this kind of thing happens. As NewGirlBoston posted above. Where are the parents of these children? What is going on with parental supervision or in this case, the lack thereof.

      All of this makes me angry. It does not have to be this way. People, pay attention to what your child/children are doing and saying. This is not normal behavior. I have two teenagers (a boy & a girl) and neither one of them behave in this manner. I pay close attention to what they are doing and who they are associating with. I know there are kids like this girl.

      It’s really disturbing that a 15 year old would take the life of a 9 year old or anybody for that matter.

      Two lives & two families destroyed unnecessarily.

      Could the 2 graves been for the twin bros? May have already been topic, sorry. The videos have been with the brothers…just a thought.

      Surprise, surprise. Another adolescent person on a black box anti depressant who commits inter-family/friend murder. I am NOT excusing this! I am just saying, Google it. This girl was crazy, drugs or no drugs, I’m sure. But the correlation is stunning.
