A schoolgirl, Pearl Moen has described how she knifed a stranger 21 times. She was only 17 when she performed the horrible act on the victim, a nurse. She, however, survived the onslaught.

Moen who has now been jailed, ambushed the victim in front of her home, Austin Texas. Narrating how she had “taken a life”, Moen wrote in her diary which was later discovered by the police in her bedroom after an invitation by her mother that:

“So, okay, I’ll start with the exciting bit. “I stabbed an innocent woman to death earlier today. (Technically yesterday since it’s 1 am). “It was absolutely fantastic. “Murder gives me a high unlike any other. “It feels like this crisp unreality, flashing and sparkling, adrenaline and shock. Fight or flight mode. “How do I even go about describing it. The whole thing was unreal.” “I’m so proud of myself. I stabbed her like 20 times. “Maybe more. I wasn’t counting. “She screamed & grabbed at me saying ‘What the f***?! Help. Leave’.”

Moen further wrote: “I’m a homicidal psychopath. I have a deep hatred towards people right now.”

The teenager was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment last week after appearing in court and admitting to the charge of attempted murder. The victim during an interview, showed the scars she still has on her arms and shoulder and has required months of rehab.

She said: “I always thought she would walk around with guilt, but knowing she had this joy and this pride is very unsettling.”
