A converted Muslim teenager in South Florida confesses to going on a fatal stabbing spree while at a sleepover.
On Tuesday, 17-year-old Corey Johnson told police his religious beliefs motivated him to attack.
Authorities say the teen stabbed his friend’s mother and brother more than a dozen times each at their Palm Beach Gardens residence after killing a 13-year-old guest while he slept.
Johnson was investigated by the FBI last year for displaying ‘”violent tendencies,” and was known to watch Jihadist videos online that called for the death of non-believers.
He’s charged with one-count of murder and two-counts of attempted murder, and is being held in a juvenile detention center.
