15-Year-Old Faces Murder Charge Over Social Media Feud Stabbing

(DailyVantage.com) – An online dispute between two teenage girls turned deadly in real life after one of the girls stabbed the other, leaving her to bleed out to death inside the courtyard of a residential building in the Bronx, New York.

A 15-year-old girl has been charged with the murder of 17-year-old Emery Mizell over what others who knew them say was an online feud. Police are not releasing the name of the suspect, due to her status as a minor.

Witnesses who live in the residential building told police that Mizell was surrounded by a group of around ten kids, who then fled and left the girl to bleed to death. Residents attempted to help, but Mizell died in the arms of one of the neighbors who was attempting to stop the bleeding. The murder weapon – a small bloody kitchen knife — was found beside the victim.

“I just held her wound,” said the 47-year-old good Samaritan who held the victim as she died. “I seen that she passed away,” he added, saying that Mizell had stopped breathing before the arrival of first responders. He declined to provide his name.

Nevertheless, the victim was still rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where she was officially declared dead on arrival.

The superintendent of the residential building said that the suspect also lived in the building. He said that what began apparently as a fistfight between the two became deadly when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim.

The suspect was identified as a foster child – her foster parent related that on the day of the stabbing, her foster daughter rushed into the apartment, crying, saying that “something bad happened.”

The foster mother, who also declined to provide her name, said that her foster daughter was always feeling “scared and threatened.”

However, Tony Mizell, the victim’s father, described his daughter as a “beautiful child,” while friends of the victim said that she was a “reliable friend” who wrote rap songs as a hobby, while others described her as “sweet” and someone who “put everyone before herself.”
