Jasmyn Tully Stabbed to Death by her Friend who had the Urge to Hurt Someone

A teenage girl was stabbed to death at her friend's house - because he allegedly wanted to hurt someone after smoking synthetic marijuana.

Jasmyn Tully, 17, was found at the apartment in Tukwila, Washington, early Saturday, unconscious and bleeding from stab wounds.

A 17-year-old youth arrested in the stabbing has been ordered held in detention for investigation of second-degree murder.

The young man told police he had 'felt an urge to hurt someone'.

The Seattle Times says an uncle reports that the young man, whose name has not been released, had smoked synthetic marijuana, known by its street name, Spice.

Rage has been considered a side-effect of the drug, which is sold at smoke shops in the area.

Investigators say the 17-year-old suspect was staying in the apartment at the 11600 block of 42nd Avenue South in Tukwila when he stabbed Jasmyn.

Police say they found the suspect wandering the streets nearby with a gash in his arm, claiming he had been stabbed but chased his attacker away.

The suspect appeared in juvenile court, his wrist bandaged from a self-inflicted wound, on Monday afternoon, where the families were both present. Read More
