IN MEMORY VIDEO FOR KELLI O’LAUGHLIN
Late Thursday night, police investigators announced the capture of a murder suspect, for the recent home invasion and stabbing death of 14-year-old Kelli O’Laughlin.
About one week ago, the Indian Lakes teen surprised a burglar when arriving home. The suspect, 38-year-old John Wilson, Jr., allegedly stabbed her to death and then hailed a cab after the crime. Police say DNA evidence links the suspect to the crime and that they found her blood on his clothing. Even more shocking, he supposedly used her stolen cell phone to call her home afterwards. Wilson is reported to be a “gang banger” on probation, with a long criminal record.
Authorities are confident they have the killer and early today charged him with murder. It’s good to hear they have someone in custody and he appears to be the killer.
This was a senseless loss of life and if they have the right man, let’s hope he pays dearly for this horrific murder. May Kelli O’Laughlin rest in peace…gone too soon.
