Alyssa Bustamante


The story of what happened to 9 year old Elizabeth Olten on October 21 is still being pieced together, yet it grows more disturbing with every detail that comes to light. This week a Missouri Grand Jury not only charged 15 year old Alyssa Bustamante with the first degree murder of Elizabeth Olten, but certified her to stand trial as an adult.

The evidence presented by law enforcement shows that the Friday before Elizabeth disappeared, Alyssa Bustamante was digging two holes in the nearby woods that would eventually be where Elizabeth’s body was recovered on October 23, only 2 days after she disappeared. When Elizabeth Olten failed to arrive home by seven o’clock on October 21, her family became alarmed. The family did not hesitate in calling police to report the 9 year old missing.

Overnight into October 22 authorities were picking up a ping from Elizabeth’s cell phone in the wooded area near her home. Authorities focused their search on finding Elizabeth’s cell phone in hopes of finding Elizabeth. Sadly, the pinging stopped when the cell phone battery died. Yet at the time Elizabeth’s family maintained the little girl would not go into the woods by herself as she was afraid of the dark.

The search for Elizabeth Olten was slow and tedious due to the pouring rain and difficult wooded terrain in the area. On October 23 it was reported that police were talking with a 15 year old who led authorities to Elizabeth’s body buried in the woods. According to authorities Elizabeth Olten was strangled, stabbed and had her throat cut. The 15 year old girl has since been identified as Alyssa Bustamante and court records show that Alyssa told police she killed Elizabeth Olten because she “wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone”.

Does anyone else find it highly disturbing that a 15 year old kills a 9 year old “just to know what it feels like” and during the days before the killing took steps to make sure her plan would go smoothly by digging a grave in the woods. Kids are killing kids! There is simply no way to fully wrap my head around this story. Really, this is simply beyond disturbing!

Recently, Alyssa Bustamante was taken to Fulton State Mental Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation as ordered by the courts who have entered a not guilty plea for the 15 year old.
