A heinous crime was committed last year by two young men in Salt Lake City, Utah. Colter Peterson and Jayzon Decker plotted to kill a fellow student, Desirae Turner.
It’s hard to imagine what could have been going through the minds of these two 16-year-old ’s that was enough to attempt to murder anyone, but it gets worse. The reason they wanted her gone?
She was “annoying.” Peterson kept getting messages and snap chats from Deserae, so the two boys casually chatted about how to eliminate her while playing video games.
The plan against Deserae, was to lure her to an abandoned location and shoot her in the back of the head.
I can’t believe it but it gets worse. They didn’t panic or regret their actions in the slightest. Instead, they left the girl for dead and went to buy some snacks.
Miraculously, Deserae, 14 at the time survived. She still suffers from setbacks because of the bullet lodged in her brain.
At Peterson’s hearing last month, Turner and her family had some choice words for the would-be murderer, who could be seen crying during her speech.
Not one to back down from this opportunity, Turner faced Peterson directly and spoke from her wheelchair.
“There are times I wish I could give the gun back to Colter. And tell him to try again and put me out of my misery,” Deserae said.
The six words that she told Peterson rings true “I am tougher than a bullet.”
