Kids who Kill: Austin Sigg: True Crime Press Series 1, Book 6
A brutal, callous, and shocking murder takes place in Westminster, CO. in October, 2012. The victim is ten-year-old Jessica Ridgeway.
A substantial manhunt gets underway to locate the missing girl, and then, when her dismembered body is discovered, justice is sought for Jessica.
Yet who could possibly be responsible for such a heinous crime?
A criminal profile is put together of the perpetrator based on the evidence they have. They are looking for a mature male sex offender who has definitely killed before. The crime, with few clues and no DNA left at the scene, is sophisticated and calculated.
Finally, there is a breakthrough in the case. They have a confession. There is one problem however; he does not match the criminal profile. He is just 17.
Is the confessor the murderer of Jessica Ridgeway, like he says he is, or is he making a false confession for his 5 minutes of fame?
