Texas Teenager Sentenced In Fatal Beating of 5-Year-Old with a Bowling Ball

What's Going On

by Barry Burch Jr.

Children need protecting from just about everything.  We can now add teenagers with bowling bαlls to the list.  A teenager in Texas was sentenced today to 23 years in prison for his role in the brutal beating and death of a 5 year-old.  He kιlled the boy with a bowling ball by battering him with it “like a football player spiking a football.”

5-year-old Sida Osman had been riding his bike until he ran into the older boy, who beαt him badly around the head.  The teenager was allegedly angry because young Osman had been nagging him about accompanying him to the store.   The weαpon of choice for the disturbed boy was a bowling ball, which he through at Osman with a force worthy of knocking him to the ground.  He then jumped on top of Osman and bashed the ball into his skull repeatedly, crushing it. 

Almost a full day following the mμrder, no one had heard anything.  The teen eventually showed Osman’s deαd body to three friends.  They were naturally shocked and demanded that he call for help, but he declined.  He also lied to Osman’s distraught mother who asked him if he had seen her son. 

The cries could be heard from outside of the court room as the teen pleaded guilty to the gruesome mμrder of his young neighbor, and accepted the plea deal of 23 years.

The teen looked back at the family of Sida and said, “‘I just want the family to know I’m sorry.”

This is a horrific, horrific case,” said Assistant District Attorney Riley Shaw.  “There were tears all over that courtroom.”

According to Mail Online, the teen’s defense attorney Ray Hall Jr. characterized the teen as one “suffering from mental illness growing up without a father who is currently in prison.”
