Anyone know anything about the girl from Elida that stabbed her mom and sister? I've heard some pretty gruesome stuff.

Yes, she was high as a kite on bath salts at the time. She is in critical condition at St Ritas and claims she recalls nothing.

Think Hannibal Lechter from the movies. I'm serious. No joke. It's real bad. Very bad details.

All I can say is I feel sorry for the little 4 year old girl who lost her life because some idiots made a "new" drug. Its a tragedy and I hope with time this family can understand what happened and I also hope that more young adults and habitual drug users see what can happen while using this drug. Just a shame that these parents have lost both of their daughters. May God be with them.

Comments posted on Lima website about this article indicate this is a Bath Salts incident.

Linda Darnell Jackson enjoyed taking trips to Chuck E. Cheese, the McDonald's Playland and flying in airplanes. She was also best friends with her elder sister, Kenyada D. Vorise-Jackson, according to her obituary.

For Jackson, 4, however, there will be no more fun-filled trips.

The young girl with the bright smile died at her home, 1913 Burch Ave., early Tuesday from multiple stab wounds. Police investigators said it was her sister best friend, Vorise-Jackson, 19, who attacked and killed the young girl during a domestic disturbance at the home.

The girls' mother, Latamangela Jackson, 44, was also stabbed multiple times during the incident, investigators said. The mother, who had been listed in serious condition at St. Rita's Medical Center since the incident, was released Thursday, a nursing supervisor said.

Investigators have remained tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding the double stabbing.

“There's nothing really new to release,” said Lt. Jim Baker, of the Lima Police Department.

Vorise-Jackson was released Thursday into police custody from St. Rita's Medical Center, where she had been treated since Tuesday, Baker said. Vorise-Jackson was being held on a charge of murder, according to Baker and Lima Municipal Court records. She had yet to make an initial appearance on the charge.

Baker said Wednesday Vorise-Jackson is likely to face additional charges down the road.

Sunday, which was supposed to be a day of celebration for the family with Vorise-Jackson's graduation from Elida High School, will now be a day of mourning. Linda's visitation is scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday at Jones-Clark Funeral Home. The girl's funeral will be Monday afternoon.

Linda's obituary also said she enjoyed Nick Jr. on the computer after she finished the “My Baby Can Read” program.

School officials on Tuesday said there will be no changes to the Elida graduation ceremony despite the tragedy. Vorise-Jackson's last day at the school was May 27.

While authorities have not said exactly what happened at the Burch Avenue home around 1:40 a.m. Tuesday, Baker has said at least part of the confrontation between Vorise-Jackson and her mother took place in the front yard of the house.

A neighbor, who declined to be identified, said at one point the mother managed to free herself and ran to neighboring houses screaming for help, blood staining one neighbor's front door.
