10 Brutal Acts Of Murder Committed By Children

Jesse Pomeroy

Jesse Pomeroy was quite an unusual looking kid with a cleft lip and one white eye. However, what separated him most from other children of his age was his tendency of sadism. Trapping, beating and stabbing 7 boys at the age of 11, Pomeroy was arrested, but was later released for good behavior when he was 15. Once free, Jesse not only returned to his life of brutality, but stepped up his game, this time killing two children. He further confessed of the killing of 27 others, making him one of the youngest serial killers to have ever existed in recorded history.

Carl Newton Mahan

One of the youngest killers of all time, Carl Newton Mahan killed his friend Cecil Van Hoose when he was just 6 years old. The reason? Cecil stole some of Carl’s scrap metal they’ve been collecting to earn some extra money.
