Kids who Kill: Joshua Phillips: True Crime Press Series 1, Book 1
"We taught our girls to pray every day. What we didn't know was that the devil himself had moved in right across the street."
Maddie Clifton is dead. Her killer is a young teenage neighbor, Joshua Phillips, who beats her with a baseball bat and stabs her multiple times. He then stuffs her body under his waterbed that he sleeps on for a week. With a lingering smell coming from the decomposing body, Joshua's mother finally makes the gruesome discovery.
How is it possible Josh can hide her body under his bed for that length of time without either of his parents noticing the distinct smell of decomposing flesh?
Who is the real Joshua Phillips? There is a dark side to this young teenager that shocks the community to the core. He is a burglar, a thief, a destroyer of property, a possible sexual deviant and a murderer.
