7. He was a child that killed other children.

“One of my grandmother’s cousins on my mom’s side was a child killer. And I mean he was a child that killed other children. He was about 6-7 for his first victim which was a little boy that died from a mysterious gun accident. For his second victim he was about 10, and it was a little girl. He tied her to a tree and set her on fire. I feel like there was a third victim but I can’t quite remember for sure. Anyway, a few years later (he was 13 I believe) he was walking home after dark and he was hit by a car and died.”
