13-Year-Old Boy Beats His 5-Year-Old Sister To Death With WWE Moves He Had Seen On TV


Viloude Louis suffered broken ribs, internal bleeding and a lacerated liver after Devalon Armstrong repeatedly slammed her on a bed, punched her in the stomach, jumped on her and struck her with his elbow several times, police said.
Deputies say they received a 911 call from the home in Terrytown, Louisiana on Sunday afternoon saying the girl had been found unconscious on the bathroom floor.
Paramedics found the girl unresponsive and she was pronounced dead a short time later.
Armstrong was arrested on Tuesday after a coroner investigation found the girl died of multiple injuries, two days after the death, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s spokesman Col. John Fortunato said.
Detectives initially spoke with the girl’s mother, Adlourdes Desvallons, 39, and found out that the teenager had been babysitting while she went to the store, Fortunato told had said.
Devalon told investigators the girl had a stomach ache and went upstairs to brush her teeth, and 30 minutes later he found her on the floor complaining her stomach still hurt, Fortunato added.
The teenager claimed he took the girl downstairs to the sofa and called 911 when he saw she was no longer breathing. Dispatchers told him to start CPR and paramedics arrived on the scene.
The coroner’s office said there did not appear to be any outward signs of injury and her death was left as unclassified, but on Monday, Devalon told detectives he had been practicing World Wrestling Entertainment-style moves on the girl.
He said that even when his little half-sister said she was in pain, he continued to carry out the moves on her. Detectives added that he appeared to be enjoying talking about the assault.

But his mother says her son apologized to her.
“I don’t know what he’s got in his mind, I don’t know if he’s done it on purpose or not,” said Desvallons.  “I really don’t know why  that’s my question. I don’t know why.”
Jefferson Parish authorities said it’s not the first time kids have tried to mimic violent television shows.
“We have to understand the maturity of our kids when we put them in the care and custody of other children,” said Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand.
The loss has devastated the entire neighborhood.
“I miss her so much,” said Bryance Joseph, 7, who used to play with Viloude.
“She was really kind, so intelligent, so smart,” said Desvallons.
The WWE issued the following statement in response to the incident:
“The death of Viloude Louis is a tragedy, and our condolences go out to her family.
WWE urges restraint in reporting this unfortunate incident as if it were the result of a WWE wrestling move. As in similar cases, criminal intent to harm and a lack of parental supervision have been the factors resulting in a tragic death.
Authorities have already charged the accused with second-degree murder and determined that this was not an accidental death due to a wrestling move.”
The Sheriff’s office has now classified her death as a homicide and Devalon was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and is being held at a juvenile detention center.
