A shocking story of how a young boy in Florida murdered two women in cold blood has surfaced on the internet.
The teenager, 19-year-old Sage Curry was arrested and charged with two murder counts of first-degree murder and breaking into an apartment where he killed two women while they were sleeping.
The victims were not identified, but neighbours told the station a mother and daughter lived together in the home.
Police said Curry confessed to breaking in through a bedroom window, grabbing a sharp kitchen knife, and attacking the women.
The teen allegedly stabbed the first woman multiple times in the chest while she slept, and then turned the knife on the second woman when she came to defend the sleeping victim, according to the report.
Police said Curry was injured by the second victim and asked a neighbour for help with his wounds, the station said.
Friends and acquaintances of the teen told the station they were shocked to hear of his alleged murders.
“Just shock overall, I’d never think someone like this could do something like that. So just shocked right now,” said former co-worker Jordan Martin, who reportedly described Curry as “nice” and “quiet.”
“It’s breathtaking and I had to do a doubletake and say is that the same kid I knew,” said Josh Estremera, a Pinellas County Minster and Community Advocate.
The teen was appointed a public defender Tuesday as he awaits trial in the Pinellas County Jail, the report said.
