Katie, aged 7 was stabbed to death in the street.

I know someone has been arrested (and that's not for discussion)

I just feel so horrendously sad for this little girls family. 7 years old and such a brutal death.

Heartbreaking.

Horrid

This is dreadful. That poor girl.

Where did this happen?

Potnoodlewilld0 Tue 10-Jan-17 18:43:15

I've just watched it. It was very upsetting.

Why is the teenager that has been arrested not up for discussion?

PixieMiss Tue 10-Jan-17 18:43:18

Such a sweet looking girl.

Awful sad

CondensedMilkSarnies Tue 10-Jan-17 18:44:12

Saw it in the news . Those poor families.

Unimaginable that her Mam saw her too.

I used to live in York and it always seemed such a safe place!! Horrifying and i heard it was another child who who did it? What an awful tragedy :-(

7 years old. Shes just a baby. Her poor parents and family. It just doesn't bare thinking about. I have to second why is the fact that someone has been arrested for this murder not for discussion.
Sleep Peacefully With the angels, Katie.

We don't know that a 15yo has done anything.

God this has made me feel so hideously uncomfortable. That poor, poor little baby sad

katienana Tue 10-Jan-17 18:55:30

Saw this on local news earlier, I can't process this at all. It's truly horrifying. Rest in peace little angel.

Who said she was stabbed? That hasn't been reported on any of the news bulletins I've seen?

Unsurechicken Tue 10-Jan-17 19:02:39

Who saod she was stabbed?

bibbitybobbityyhat Tue 10-Jan-17 19:05:33

Horrific. But unlikely to be random.

pontynan Tue 10-Jan-17 19:05:48

It's horrific and impossible to imagine what her parents are going through. But I'm with OP - the papers have reported that a 15 year old has been arrested. She is innocent until charged, tried and found guilty. None of those things have happened and I'm really unhappy with jumping the gun and discussing her possible involvement. How do we know that if she is charged one of the jurors isn't on MN?

orangepudding Tue 10-Jan-17 19:07:49

It's disgusting that anyone could do something so horrific to a child. Poor, poor girl.

HappyFlappy Tue 10-Jan-17 19:09:53

Horrible! Just horrible!

We'd seen the news but they didn't release any details other than that a 7 year old had been killed and a 15 year old girl arrested.

Unbelievably sad and dreadfully shocking.

MycatsaPirate Tue 10-Jan-17 19:11:05

Early reports I read online today said she had been stabbed twice. However, I'm not going to link to anything as it's mainly reporting on the 15 year old. I don't think anyone should be discussing that part, she hasn't been charged, we don't know what happened or who did it. So the reasons pontypan have given are the reasons I agree with.

I just can't get my head round it. Just 7 years old. Seemingly she was in the field/park behind where she lived. It's just bloody awful. Her poor parents.

UserOne Tue 10-Jan-17 19:11:43

My first reaction was shock a 15 year old would do that. But really, pontynan and PossumInAPearTree are very right.
Many people have been arrested and had no charges at all. Many people have been charged but have gone to court and evidence has shown they're innocent.
We should not judge.
It is supposed to be innocent til proven guilty, but most of the time in society it's guilty til proven innocent. Usually I do remind myself of that too. I think I just got caught up in how horrific it is that somebody, a child, has been murdered.
