This story breaks my heart because I am from Decatur, Georgia.
Meet Tyasia Jackson.
This 13 year-old young lady’s beautiful smile hides the heart of a killer.
Jackson is accused of stabbing her little two year-old, step-sister, Sasha Ray, seven(7) times in the heart on Monday afternoon.
She then disposed of the little girl by throwing her off the balcony of her family’s condo on Waldrop Trail, Decatur, Georgia.
Apparently she was angry over an incident that occurred earlier that day.
School is out for the Thanksgiving holidays for the students in Dekalb County, which is where Decatur is located. On Monday, Jackson was commissioned by her mother and step-father to babysit her siblings while they were out.
While babysitting, she decided to have over a few friends.
A concerned neighbor, seeing the shenanigans, called the parents to give them a heads up on the happenings at their abode.
The parents were not overwhelmed by the news and asked the neighbor to go investigate.
The neighbor went over to the family’s condo and and asked if the friends were still there. Jackson denied that anyone was there, but upon further investigation, the neighbor found the friends and a young man in a closet. The neighbor asked the the boy and the friends to leave.
After they left, Tyasia asked for her siblings to go upstairs and kept Sasha downstairs.
The teen then took Sasha towards the back door of the home and stabbed her seven times in the chest.
She then threw Sasha’s body over the balcony.
In my opinion, I think she stabbed the little girl and threw here over the balcony, in hopes that the body would be found in the neighbor’s yard.
She probably hoped the neighbor would be blamed and then sent away.
All of this happened because the neighbor stopped Jackson’s plans with her friends.
The girl’s stepfather, Shelton Ray says, “She called my wife and told her Sasha was missing. She actually tried to blame it on the neighbor. She said she thought the neighbor took Sasha with her”.
Ray said they rushed home to help look for the girl. They eventually found Sasha in the backyard.
“I picked her up and immediately came to the front and got in the car. We were going to take her to the hospital and she died in my arms at the entrance of the community,” Ray said.
Jackson made her first court appearance Tuesday.
Jackson was escorted into the DeKalb County Court Tuesday morning by jail guards, wearing a blue prison jumpsuit.
Detectives decided to charge Jackson as an adult in the case.
And I think that it’s a good idea.
There’s no telling what else this child is capable of.
Sasha Ray caught Jackson having sex with the boy found in the closet.
This may be the reason for Jackson’s violent act.
