This teenage girl who loved horror films has handed herself into cops after allegedly drowning a six-year-old boy and putting his body in a wardrobe.
Drawings of horror characters such as Slender Man, a fictional character which originated as a meme, were found in the girl’s bedroom along with sentences such as “all the good girls go to hell” and “I’m the teen that couldn’t control her emotions”.
Yusri Yunus, the local Chief Commissioner of Police, also said it had been reported that the suspect liked to watch horror films including Chucky.
Local media report the 15-year-old girl, who has been named in reports as N.F., drowned the six-year-old boy in his bathroom before putting his body in a wardrobe and handing herself in to the Jakarta Central Police in the Indonesian capital.
Reports state she had been playing with the boy, who has not been named, in his home before she asked him to go into the bathroom where he was killed.
The relationship between the pair is unclear and reports say the girl showed no regret when handing herself into cops.
Local media report the girl had been known to torture small animals, including stabbing frogs with forks and dropping cats from tower blocks.
She also reportedly did artwork and diaries that have since been sent to a psychiatric department to be analysed further.
Reports state the suspect is undergoing psychiatric examinations in order to determine if she is suffering from a mental illness.
The case is ongoing.
