JEFFERSON CITY — New details have emerged about the teen suspect in the slaying of a 9-year-old mid-Missouri girl, but many facts about the case remain under wraps.
Fifteen-year-old Alyssa Bustamante is charged as an adult with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the death of Elizabeth Olten. Authorities say she confessed to digging two holes and to killing Elizabeth five days later because she wanted to know what it felt like.
But police and prosecutors have declined to say why two holes were dug and whether Elizabeth was found in one of them. They also have not elaborated on the "written evidence" that helped lead them to Bustamante.
On a YouTube profile, Bustamante had listed her hobbies as "killing people" and "cutting."
