12-year old girl tries to poison her mom twice for taking away her iPhone

12-year old girl tries to poison her mom twice for taking away her iPhone
On Friday, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado placed a 12-year old girl at the Boulder Juvenile Center after being charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder. After a two week investigation, the cops believe that the pre-teen had twice tried to poison her mom because she had taken her daughter's iPhone away from her. The first attempt involved adding bleach into a smoothie that the mother started drinking. Luckily, the mother noticed the bleach smell which she figured came from poor rinsing of the glass by her daughter. When the mother once again noticed a bleach smell, this time wafting out from a water carafe, the jig was up.

Following the second poisoning attempt, the mother approached the daughter who admitted that she was trying to kill her because she had taken away her iPhone. While the mother did feel sick after the first attempt with the smoothie, the feeling eventually passed. She didn't drink any of the poisoned water that was offered to her during the second murder attempt.

Boulder resident Luciana Cordova, who is not involved in this case, has taken her teenagers' phones away as a punishment. "I have two teenagers that, I think as most teenagers this age, are kind of addicted to their phones," Cordova told a local news team. "I have done it on occasion and luckily they have reacted well about it."




Thanks for the tip!

Parents these days... *sigh* Who the bloody hell gives a friggin iPhone to a 12 year old?! I got my first smartphone (120$ cheapo) when I was 14 and only I know what it took to stop myself from being addicted to it. If it would have been an iPhone... I am not really surprised by this news.

You are underestimating them :) . My friend had Siemens M65 (10 year old pnone now) that had actual Worms on it! We played for hours in that thing and there were other games too. And even before that I had an old old motorola with Arcanoid on it that I beat so many times.

I got my first cell phone when I turned 18. Signed up myself. Paid for it myself. It was a flashy, state of the art Motorola Startek. I then got a Nokia 1260. I didn't get my first smartphone until I worked for Sprint as a National Retail rep for Best Buy and Costco. They gave us all the Mogul.

You missed the point. If you play cricket with a broken bat, you won't be as interested in playing it the next time around. The same way I couldn't properly use my Galaxy 5 because it was so damn slow, but I still spent a lot of time on it.

I don't have one of those. Try to troll harder.

Let's not bring in other users family members. It's disrespectful, unwarranted, and has absolutely no place here.

Well said bro, I wasn't going to stoop to his level though. This ain't about me, and it's not a joke issue either. +1

Indeed. We may all go at it from time to time here on PA, but being this disrespectful is just tasteless and has no place on a tech site.

Failed attempt at humor. Just give it up please.

That wasn't a "failed attempt at humor", it was a plain as day attempt to be disrespectful. Don't try to cover for him. Fanboys man, I swear lol.

I'm not covering for him. My comment was in response to his, not yours.

You're on the internet.... Clam down, it was funny, don't take the world so seriously

What, exactly, was funny about him talking about darkk's daughter? You clearly don't have any children, or you would find this reprehensible. If you do have children and condone this type of behavior, even on the internet, then something is seriously wrong with you.

Haha, i remember days when everybody else here including me was without no proper reason got a "dumbass" stamp etc from darkjedii - i never ever wrote bad word on his site even on Apples site - my only comments were how Apple is really cut on features for that money and everytime i got rude words from this asshole called DarkJedii. This is tech site - and this "dumbass darkjedii" is as techie as my dog is. (and my dog is smart enough not to call everybody else "dumbass" without no reason.)

dude, id be right ready to break someones neck for talking like that to my children or family members, Darkk's the kind of guy you try especially hard not to get into a fight with

Oh my word, guys, you are all a bunch of strangers to eachother. What people say on the internet is like a little fly throwing up on your window sill; who the hell cares. It was funny. Yeah, if someone you know says something bad about your family, go sort them out, but no one even has a clue if you have a family on here. Calm down. You all seem way too sensitive. He clearly said it as a joke, so shush. Grab your pick-it signs and go protest somewhere else

Dude, you shush. You have no idea how idiotic you "sound" right now. If you don't think it's that big of a deal, then why are you even responding to anything we post?

Mate, your crying cuz someone made a small joke about someone else who doesn't even have a daughter anyway, and you personally know neither of them, someone needs to pipe up and tell you to stop being a keyboard warrior

99. meanestgenius

Posts: 22043; Member since: May 28, 2014

I'm a "keyboard warrior" because I told someone, in a polite way mind you, that we should keep things "tech" and not include someone's family member? You're coming at me like a little girl with her training bra boobs all puffed out and I'm crying? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!! You're saying I'm doing all of this for someone I don't personally know, but aren't you doing the exact same thing you're accusing me of? Hypocrite, much? You need to get your head examined. What he said was wrong. Period. No two ways about it. I told him he was wrong. Period. I could care less whether you have a problem with that.
