Aiden Fucci, 16, the Florida teenager who admitted killing Tristyn Bailey, 13, by stabbing her 114 times before dumping her body in the woods over Mother’s Day weekend in 2021, has been sentenced to life in prison with a review of the sentence after 25 years.

“It was not an immature or brash type of crime,” Judge R. Lee Smith said. “It makes him unique, it makes him extraordinary. What is also very disturbing is that this crime had no motive. It was not done out of greed. It was not done in retaliation, retaliation or revenge. It wasn’t a crime of passion. It wasn’t a crime he committed because he felt rejected by her. It wasn’t done in a fit of uncontrollable anger. There was no reason. There was no goal.

“It was done for no other reason than to satisfy this defendant’s internal desire to feel what it was like to kill someone,” the judge continued. “It was committed in a cold, calculated and premeditated manner without any pretense of moral or legal justification. And it is heinous, atrocious and cruel. This factor and this factor alone makes this case and this defendant more than unique.
