17-year-old girl killed 30?

Brazilian serial killer 17-year-old girl latest details

Girl aged 17 knifes 30 men to death

This sounds too sensational to be true.

I saw the story this morning too. If it is true, it is beyond rare and should get more sensationalized coverage than the small mention it's getting now. Female serial killers are very rare. Teenage serial killers are even more rare. Put them together and it's either a once-in-a-lifetime occurance, or she's not being truthful. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. (For the record, I agree with Tricia - it sounds like a bit much to me.)

Good grief, and she's only 17!!

It is very very possible that it is true.
And nope, unfortunately not at all that rare... The only rare thing in here, is the fact that she is confessing the crimes. Most of them run loose, and the caught go to FEBEM (juvenile hall) for a year or two; at the most until they are 18. The penalty doesn't carry through adulthood, so if this girl goes in juvenile at 17, she will be out in a year, with a CLEAN criminal record.
Because of this, there are plenty of teens in Brasil (and kids too) that are hired to kill, as they can not be tried as adults, and the penalty is ridiculously low for them. This is something that as shameful as it is, it is very real.
There is also no death penalty in there, and the maximum sentence is 30 yrs... If it is a first time crime, that goes down to 6 years or so...
Yep, it is a mess... and yes, there are 10 yr olds with more murders than this girl... It sucks.

Wow. That is just unreal.

I guess I was putting in the context of a true (forensicly defined) serial killer, not as kids used as hired hitmen. How horrible and sad.

I know... It's awful!
Last time I was in vacation in there, there was this little boy on TV saying how he had over 60 murders under his belt, and he was 11 years old....
The majority are not serial killers - they are hired by gangs and drug lords as hit men.

That seems like a LOT of murders for a rather small teenage girl to carry out....Did anyone see the picture on the link of her talking to the investigator? It doesn't show her face, but you can tell that she's pretty petite.

Kinda seems like something's a bit off, but if it is true, damn!
