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.
