Last Tuesday, the Philadelphia police found 15-year old Sabriya McLean dead under a pile of leaves. The police said she was stabbed about 80 times and set on fire.
The night before, Sabriya invited a 23-year-old man named Cole Swaringer-Herring to her apartment. They met on facebook. The man stabbed her, set her on fire and hid her body in a nearby alley. The next morning, the killer’s parents immediately called the police after they said that he confessed.
The police would arrest him and have charged him with murder, arson, abuse of a corpse among others. Cole, the killer, has a criminal history of robbery and violence. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Sabriya’s family.
