Trevor Reese, deadly stabbing suspect, to be tried as an adult

There are 421 comments on the story from Jun 11, 2010, titled Trevor Reese, deadly stabbing suspect, to be tried as an adult. In it, reports that:

A 16-year-old boy accused of stabbing an 8-year-old boy to death Thursday should be tried as an adult, a state district court judge ruled today.

Trevor Reese, 16, 13700 Sunrise Way in The Bluffs, was arrested Thursday and booked on first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Jackson Attuso, of Clinton, West Feliciana Parish Sheriff J. Austin Daniel said today.

District Judge William G. Carmichael ruled in a juvenile hearing today that probable cause exists to prosecute Reese as an adult.

Attuso was stabbed repeatedly in the front and back of his body and had his throat cut, Daniel has said.

District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla said Carmichael ordered Reese held without bail and set a June 16 hearing on whether bail should be granted in the case.

D’Aquilla said the judge’s reasons for transferring the case from juvenile court included severity of the crime and the age of the suspect, who will be 17 on July 31.

A grand jury is slated to consider the case Thursday, D’Aquilla said.

Thursday’s attack occurred on a wooded trail in The Bluffs on Thompson Creek, Daniel has said.

If as so many want to think, both families truly lost a child, then it wont bother anyone if Trevor is killed in jail, because according to so many the Reese's already lost him. I have to beleive someone will mourn then whether the monster deserves it or not, until then they have not truly lost their child or come near experiencing the grief that Jack's loved ones feel. Even then they will have 17 years of holidays and birthdays and memories to draw from. They will remember a 10th birthday, teaching him to drive, his 1st dance with a girl. The memories forever lost to Jack's family. I find it incomprehensible to think the losses are comparable

Some children get isolated, are allowed to watch T. V. shows that they shouldn't, like that show "Dexter" to work up the "courage" to kill, due to inner aggression. It is all such a tragedy. The poor little boy that was killed had a twin. He was ambushed in the woods while riding a bike with his mom and twin brother, and brutally stabbed and cut up. Remember that song, poor babes in the woods? I used to play it on the guitar. Poor babes in the woods.

I loved him so much. I never saw this coming... It's been seven months and it is still affecting me. I still think about him and pray for his family. The Attuso's family is in my prayers, as well, but I knew Trevor, and it feels like a bigger lose to me.
We had a connection. I knew him so well, or so I thought.
We talked all the time, and hung out, and he meant so much to me.
We talked for the last time two days before this happened...the day I was supposed to hang out with him.
It was my last chance to tell him how I felt.
I miss him.
I miss the Trevor I thought I knew.

Sick to your stomach? It pisses me off!
They need to have to look at the photos of how Trevor slaughtered a happy child, hear how he was happy when he unexpectedly found construction workers in the building he intended to change clothes in and then by all means, please explain it to Jack's brothers and friends why the guy that did this deserves an opportunity of free life. He admitted it and all the DNA and evidence matches to no other possible conclusion
Anyone who sees the photos will be haunted for life, if you can live with those images in your memory and say with a clear conscience he deserves to be free, something's seriously wrong with you. This wasn't and accidental shooting or a panicked single stab wound, this was a planned and executed butchering of an innocent child who put up a hell of a struggle before dying in his mothers arms and covering everyone there in blood of an innocent. If this is something any of today's youth is OK with I fear the future of us all

I don't believe that you live within the walls of the Reese home either. Kthanks.
You don't seem to understand what they are saying. Maybe you're too young and naive, but since you don't seem to understand it you shouldn't be commenting on it until you figure it out. Trevor is a cold blooded killer he slaughtered a small child not a small animal a child. Their had to be some sort of signs and the parents should have noticed it. When something was wrong with me my parents noticed it and did something about it, I'm not saying his parents are completely at fault but they are somewhat at fault here. You claim to be his friend why didn't you see it coming? His parents were too naive to think that their kid could actually have some sort of problem when he did something wrong in school they just thought that he was smarter than the other kids so he was acting out. Maybe they were just too concerned about their reputation to admit that their child had a problem and get him help. Trevor needs more than just mental help he deserves to be punished for what he did. Personally I think that he should get death because the innocent 8 year old boy got death but Trevor was 16 about to be 17 and he knew what he did was wrong and that their would be consequences. I hope that Jackson and his family gets the justice that they deserve.

I find it hard to belive this is the first time this kid has done something like this, maybe not to this degree but mentally ill children have history. I blame parents for not being attentive to this child, they are partly to blame they should have seen flags and diverted this act. Prevention is the best defense. I dont care how sweet good nice or saint like you are if you dont know you kid, and obviously these parents dont or they would have done something, then your not worthy of parenting. I know that these parents are probably so in shock but there should have been signs. I am just saying!
Irregardless of what you find hard to believe, before this occurred there were not indications for anyone to have seen. Parents were attentive to all of their children and there were were no outward signs. Deal with the fact that the switch flipped and he went off with no "previous warning". It is possible and it does happen. Sorry if this disturbs all of the folks that live in their safe little town. Just because you think it is safe,don't expect it to be safe.

Maybe some money could be put to better use in dealing with the consequences of these actions and where we are right now. Gotta be better use of resources than paying a lawyer with exhorbant fees trying to prolong the case and put off Trevor paying consequences for his actions. Children witnessed this and will need help all the way through to adulthood as they process while becoming adults. Every crime you see reported is leaving someone's world shattered and those people need support that the state is no longer providing.

Hopefully Trevor's siblings are getting some counseling too. It can't be easy to be an adolescent knowing you're so closely related to someone capable of commiting such an autrocity. Gaining healthy self-image growing up is hard enough

Enough already with the "pray for..." stuff.
This is MAN MADE. God does not prevent men from harming men. And God will not prevent the suffering that man inflicts upon others. There is nothing in this to pray about.
I believe in God, but God will NOT come to the aid of man. He watches and judges - he does not interfere.
how about praying for comfort? for support? for love and encouragement?
You "believe" in God, but obviously you're not spiritual enough to feel God, to know Him, and to truly understand His love.

I knew Trevor and his family years ago. In fact, I believe Trevor was around 8, Jackson's age.
Derek and Lisa are kind people who reach out to others. Unfortunately, it was sometimes at the expense of their children. Multiple times I heard one or the other of them say "Oh Trevor will do that" whatever that was. It was obvious Trevor did not want to do "it" but would comply. They did not seem to acknowledge his feelings. I also witnessed Trevor being ugly to Tyler, his younger brother. Derek and Lisa seemed to think it was just sibling rivalry.
One time we went on a day trip and my dad was present. Derek nor Lisa were there. I don't know what happened, my dad never really explained. I know it was an altercation between Trevor and his younger brother Tyler. However, what my dad said to me was if somebody didn't do something with that kid soon (meaning Trevor), there was going to be BIG trouble!
My dad is elderly and from the old school. He didn't share the specific details. It was the FIRST time he had ever laid eyes on Trevor. Since this tragedy involving Trevor has occurred, my dad's voice has echoed in my mind many times.
All involved continue to be in my prayers.
