Known, violent teenager killed 13-year-old because of his Muslim faith

The perp, Corey Johnson

For over a year authorities were aware of this kid’s violent tendencies, including a stated desire to join ISIS. Investigations into his actions resulted in no charges/arrest.

From Fox News: A Florida teenager — who had previously been investigated for “alleged violent tendencies” — watched jihadist videos and read the Koran “to give him courage” before stabbing a 13-year-old boy to death and seriously injuring two others at a birthday sleepover Monday, cops said.

Corey Johnson, 17, was charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder after police said he confessed to the assault at the 13th birthday sleepover party at a BallenIsles Country Club home, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Jupiter Police, Palm Beach County School District police and the FBI previously received “intelligence gathering” on Johnson that prompted an investigation into his “alleged violent tendencies,” the Palm Beach Post reported.

Johnson reportedly told police he woke up at 4 a.m. Monday at Kyle Bancroft’s home and had an urge to kill Kyle’s mother, Elaine Simon; Kyle’s brother, 13-year-old Dane Bancroft; and Dane’s friend, 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra. The three victims were each asleep at the time, the Post reported.

“In his statement, Johnson advised he stabbed the victims because of his Muslim faith,” the affidavit stated.

Johnson and Kyle Bancroft allegedly watched violent jihadist videos the night before the 17-year-old carried out the deadly stabbing. Using a knife he brought to the home, Johnson stabbed Sierra multiple times before slitting his throat.

Simon, apparently hearing Sierra moaning in pain, began walking upstairs around 6 a.m. when Johnson allegedly lunged at her. Police say he stabbed her at least a dozen times before she fell down the stairs. Dane was stabbed 32 times while attempting to help his mother, according to the Palm Beach Post.

“He’s a hero,” the boy’s father said during a phone interview with the Post. “He saved his mom.”

Sierra was pronounced dead at the scene. Simon and Dane were taken to the hospital, where Simon remains in good condition as of Tuesday. Kyle Bancroft and Johnson were not harmed in the incident.

Police were alerted after Simon ran to a neighbor begging to call 911. “She rang my bell, she’s bleeding,” the neighbor said later. “Corey Johnson is out there with a knife. He’s a murderer. That’s all I know. They’re trying to help the kid the kids filled with blood.”

Johnson was taken into custody about 8 a.m. after briefly barricading himself in a room.

He later told authorities he was upset Sierra, who turned 13 on Monday, called celebrities “gods” because it went against his Muslim faith. Johnson also said Dane made fun of his Islamic faith. The teen told police he read the Koran before going to the sleepover “to give him courage to carry out his intentions,” according to an affidavit.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office received information prior to the stabbings that Johnson reached out to ISIS online and expressed his desire to join the terror group.

Law enforcement officials at the time investigated Johnson by tracking his social media accounts and movements and interviewing his family. The teen was also being investigated for several threats that prompted evacuations at a British school in October 2016.

Authorities had planned to file charges against Johnson for international school threats a week before the sleepover rampage, according to the report.

Johnson went to William T. Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, but recently withdrew, according to the report. Dane Bancroft and Jovanni Sierra were attending Watson B. Duncan Middle School.

    • pdmac58 . . . . Bravo! I could not have said it any better! It is just shocking that all these adults just did not follow the dots . . . and now we have one dead young person, and two people who have been maimed. What in Heaven’s name is wrong with law enforcement people?

      I would also say . . . . Why is a student from a “high school” invited to a sleep over party for “grade school” students?

      I think that if parent’s become aware that a young person is giving off vibes of being a “terrorist in the making,” that it is their responsibility to see to it that their child does not associate themselves with that said person.

      What can be done to shake up these law enforcement agencies so that they get off their butts, and actually take action when these types of disturbed people come up?

    Another failure of government, as in Parkland, FL.
    And yet, the Left and the snowflake generation want bigger and more government.

  4. How many crimes and threats does a person have to commit before something is done? The FBI dropped the ball again so they wouldn’t insult Islam. No other explanation makes sense. Who is giving out these commands? Someone needs to be held accountable, especially after finding out this is multi country offenses.

    • Glenn47 . . . . God Bless you for stating the obvious . . . “The FBI dropped the ball again so they WOULDN’T INSULT ISLAM.” Until our law enforcement agencies put on their big girl panties and start proceedings against perpetrators, regardless of what their religion, nationality, race, sex, color, etc. . . . we will remain a people who can expect these heinous tragedies to continue to happen. Personally, I think all this “PC” nonsense has caused our society to decline, and it will continue to decline as long as people are afraid to step up to the plate and do what is right. regardless of who get their little feelings hurt.

    I can completely understand authorities hesitating to make real arrests until an actual crime is committed, as I feel the only true deterrent to crime is swift punishment for all to witness. Murder being punished by public execution, with out the concern for painless death.

    • I thought the threatening of a school was a crime. The authorities planned to charge him…that sure showed him.

      They should go harder on juveniles, too. They barely get a slap on the wrists these days.

      • DCG . . . . I think you are right on target! There were crimes committed, yet the authorities failed to act. For whatever reason, they did not do their due diligence. It is am embarrassing fact that in our society, we give a pass to juveniles that are well old enough to understand right from wrong . . . this needs to change. If a young person is 13 years old, they damn sure know right from wrong (I don’t care if their brain has another 8 years to grow.) Until we start prosecuting young people, and holding them accountable for their wrong doing, we will continue to have these horrible slayings occur.

      • I think we all know the answer. It’s all a show. If it comports with “The Plan” it moves ahead. None of these “decisions” are based on any logic that we’re familiar with. In a real sense, doing these things is beneficial for their goal of destroying critical thinking.

        At a minimum, what it DOES show is that turning to government for “protection” is a non-starter.

    • Kevin . . . . I must admit, I am with you regarding “swift punishment for all to witness.” The powers that be stopped public execution, because they felt it was too gruesome for everyday folks to witness. Perhaps, that is exactly the impression that we need to instill in people, young and old in this country.

  6. My prayers go out to the family. Just another testimony to the evil that comes from satan and the religion he uses to exploit the human soul. So sad for this family. May the hand of God cover and heal them.

  7. Around 1990, FBI Deputy Director Oliver Revell and FBI Special Agent in Charge John P. O’Neill openly declared Islam a source of terrorism. O’Neill even went to Saudi Arabia to investigate but was blocked by the State Department. He became head of security, World Trade Center, and he died in its collapse, September 11, 2001. I don’t know why there was such a change in the understanding of Islam, a change so great that George W. Bush told America that it was a religion of peace.

    • the change has been orchestrated by the globalist elite in order to cause chaos on a massive scale – which then they propose to solve by bringing as their slogan (Freemason) says, “ordo ab chaos” (order from chaos) , their NWO – new world order – it’s on the US dollar bill for crying out loud for all to see

    • marblenecltr . . . . I for one would not put any stock in anything that George W. Bush said. Islam is only a religion of peace, if you discount what all the Jihadist fighters are doing.

    Another failure through our politically correct system – because we might be called a “racist” if you point out this 13-year old has joined the muslim faith and ISIS.
