Stephanie Pistey, 18, is one of five people who have been charged with either murder or accessory to murder in the killing of 16-year-old Jacob Hendershot in Parker, Florida.
She also told a local TV station in a jailhouse interview that she became aware at age 12 that she's a vampire with a bit of werewolf mixed in.
According to Parker police, some of Pistey's friends told Hendershot to come over back in August, and when he showed up, they beat him to death and dumped him in a concrete storm drain.
Pistey is said to be the babysitter of one of the alleged murderers, Tammy Morris, and was watching her two kids in the same house where Hendershot was allegedly being killed.
In Pistey's interview with WBBH-TV, she decided to start off by saying that although Hendershot "deserved to get the shit beat out of him," he still didn't deserve to die.
There's no context in the interview as to why she decided to tell the TV station she believed she was a vampire with a touch of werewolf, but she said it with a smile:
"Since I was like 12, every fiber in my body, basically everything -- I know this is going to be crazy -- but I believe that I'm a vampire and part werewolf," she said.
Pistey then denied drinking Hendershot's blood to the news folks but readily admitted to drinking the blood of 25-year-old William Chase, her fiancé/codefendant, at some point in the past.
Then there's what Pistey said about the crime on her Facebook page:
Pistey told WBBH-TV she plans on staying in jail for the rest of her life. Her bond is currently set at $120,000.
