Killers at 13/14/15: What Do They Deserve?

Victims: Hollins (13), Milam (13), & Davis (88)

Autumn Maire Wood: 

Crime: At 15 she killed Brooklyn Ann Hollins during an unsupervised house party. Pinning Hollins down, she alledgely beat the 13 year-old girl with her fists before reaching for a kitchen knife and stabbing her in the chest. Wood fled the scene, but turned herself in later that night. Autumn Wood is out on bail and living with family members.

Extenuating circumstances: Wood's father's whereabouts are unknown. Her mother has drug and prostitution convictions. Wood was being home schooled and had little supervision or guidance

Dakota Holt:

Crime: At 13 he killed Dylan Milam, also 13, during an overnight stay. Shooting Milam with a rifle he was using for target practice, Holt initially stated the gun fired accidentally and ostensibly showed remorse. He confessed only after being confronted by authorities over contradictory forsenic evidence. Released from juvenile detention, Dakota Holt is now living with family members and awaiting trial.

Extenuating circumstances: Holt lived with his mother and her boyfriend, a convicted drug dealer. Father was marginal figure.

John Doe:

Crime: At 14 he reportedly killed 88 year-old Elbert Farley Davis Jr. Davis died from a fractured skull and neurological injury due to as yet unpublished circumstances. Killer attended Deshler High School. Reports indicate teachers recognized the youth as being at risk and had tried to intervene. The youth is reportedly in juvenile custody.

Extenuating circumstances: Unknown at this time. We don't believe he will prove to be the child of professional parents who were active members of a local church.


If convicted, the three teen-age killers will be incarcerated until they reach the age of 21. What then?

Pen N Sword is following the Davis case and broke the story of the arrest. Related article: 



  1. Drugs are a problem and in many cases the cause of unsupervised kids getting into trouble themselves.

    I would like to see Shoalanda interview Li'l Stevie stores owner as to the motivation to continue selling these substances that are killing people.

    1. We've gotten several complaints about stores in general selling synthetic least until they're officially banned. This would seem to demand an investigation by a professional. We're giving this info to Trader of Pen N Sword; he's a retired LEO and has the right contacts.

  2. I can only imagine how the teach at Deshler feels right now. Asking what else could I have done to prevent this.

  3. Mr. Davis' murder was an unspeakable tragedy. Great work by Pen-N-Sword, btw.
