Family of 10 y.o. boy who murdered 90 y.o. woman doesn't want him back

Tristen Kurilla
American society is breeding psychopaths.
The angelic-looking boy in the pic above is one of them.
He is Tristen Kurilla, age 10.
On Oct. 14, 2014, the AP and Daily Mail report that 10-year-old Tristen Kurilla from Pennsylvania has been charged as an adult in the beating death of a 90-year-old woman, Helen Novak.
Novak was in the care of Tristen’s grandfather, Anthony Virbitsky, on Sky Lake Road in Damascus Township, Pennsylvania.

Prosecutors in Wayne County said that on Oct. 11, county emergency responders got a call reporting the death of an elderly woman, Helen Novak.

District Attorney Janine Edwards said in a statement that Tristen’s mother, Martha Virbitsky, had brought the boy in to the state police barracks at Honesdale the same afternoon and reported that her son had told her that he had gone into the woman’s room to ask her a question and she yelled at him. So “he got mad, lost his temper and grabbed a cane and put it around Novak’s throat,” police said.

When Tristen was advised of his rights and interviewed by a trooper, the boy said he “pulled Novak down on the bed and held the cane on her throat and then punched her numerous times.” Tristen then went to his grandfather and first told him that the woman was “bleeding from her mouth” but denied he had harmed her.

Later, the boy admitted that he had punched the woman and put a cane around her neck. He described how he had pushed the cane into Novak’s throat for several seconds and then punched her five times in the throat and the stomach. “I was only trying to hurt her,” Kurilla told detectives.

Police said an autopsy performed at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Honesdale indicated blunt force trauma to the victim’s neck, and the death was ruled a homicide. Dr. Gary Ross also said the boy’s account to police “was consistent with the injuries he observed.”

Tristen was charged as an adult with criminal homicide and aggravated assault, with the prosecutor’s office noting that the crime of homicide “is specifically excluded from the juvenile act” and therefore “a juvenile who commits the crime of homicide is charged as an adult.” Kurilla is being held without bail pending an October 22 preliminary hearing.

According to court documents cited by WFMZ, the boy’s mother, Martha Virbitsky, told police she “has had a lot of trouble with Tristen and that he has had some mental difficulties.”

Here is another pic of Kurilla making the I-love-you devil’s horns sign:tristen-kurillaAccording to Ericka Sóuter of CafeMom, Oct. 16, 2014:

Tristen’s “parents don’t want him back. They reportedly would rather have the poor, troubled child behind bars awaiting trial than with them. […]
Since being taken into custody, he has been held at jail in a private cell. Originally, the family’s attorney had petitioned to have the boy returned to his father or moved to a juvenile detention center. But that request has been rescinded. The juvenile facility is over 90 miles away, making it too hard to visit. As for the other option — they don’t want him back under their roof. His parents, apparently, are an ’emotional wreck’ and don’t feel comfortable having him in their care. […] So they want him to stay just where he is. They believe he is being treated well and is allowed to color and play. […] Tristen may see things differently. Detectives found a piece of paper in his cell with ‘How to Escape’ written on it.”

I think I would be afraid to spend one day in a house with this kid, he is truly evil.

We live in a time, when too many want to term “evil” as having mental difficulties. Psychopaths are beyond rehabilitation and are essentially “satan’s spawns”. The kid looks evil; especially flashing the devil’s hand-sign. If truth be totally known, the little spawn has probably tortured animals and killed other things worthy of living. I grew up in a era when “childhood innocence” was still in our civilization, and children knew “right from wrong”. Evil is not created; it’s born through spawning. The Jonesboro, Arkansas shooters were about 11 years old, Jeffery Dhamer perpetuated his evil by torturing animals, when he… Read more »

I wonder what was going on that home, he may have the genetic predisposition to become a sociopath but I wonder if there were parent/child attachment issues in the family. Those two are never a good combination.
How sad for him and how frightening that such a young child is capable of this kind of evil.

I have felt this growing more and more since the 60’s escalating ever faster over the years. The Marxist educational system and entertainment targeted at kids has also been a big contributor but there are probably more factors. The power elite have made sure that childhood innocence has been strangled and drown, a fit sacrifice to their god Satan More and more western society has rejected traditional mores, everything that was once taboo or an abomination to God is now normal and promoted. As time goes on God will pull his protective grace more and more, and evil is more… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post. This is extremely frightening as are the pictures of the boy.

Obviously, this is not one of Obama’s children!

He’s ten. Someone taught him all that behavior, including the devil sign, and most likely it came from his parents. With religious instruction, which he’s probably never had, he could probably be saved.

I wondered about that . Many parents these days are raising kids that will tend to be like this one,because of being overly permissive,not teaching them the difference between right and wrong,and furthering the “I,Me,My” thought process. Most of today’s youth are of the opinion that what’s good or right isn’t as important as getting what THEY want,regardless of what that does to those around them. Thus-the “ME,ME,ME” Generation.

Who would allow this demon seed with “mental difficulties” around the poor 90 year old victim? I think the boy was tired from killing animals and decided to go after someone who was weak and defenseless. My heart aches for poor Helen…I hope she had Jesus in her heart as her Lord and Savior and I pray Tristen finds and accepts the love of Jesus to heal his dark heart.

Those of us who live in PA don’t want him on the loose either.
His actions may well be the product of violent videos and games
that could inure kids to the pain they inflict.

I am against trying children as adults, because they’re not chronological adults! Be that as it may, I cannot fathom this level of evil, and I’m sure Tristan can’t, either. It could have been motivated by video games, porn or family violence witnessed and unreported. Or he could be possessed. Only God knows at this point. One thing is for sure: Although it is not mentioned in this case, we as a society must resist any and all efforts and attempts to sexualize our children. We’ve failed at that, corporately, and the results are beginning to crop up. When children… Read more »

I think it’s very possible he’s possessed. Just look at what TV and video games offer our children. I’m beginning to wonder if society even knows the difference between good and evil anymore. When someone does do something worthy s/he is pilloried. We have come upon even more evil times!

Steven Broiles: For the most part, I’m in agreement with your take on this evil piece of kid. There are a lot of people who were brutalized, sexualized and had the most horrid childhoods, that never killed anyone, tortured animals or beat frail old women and men to death. I sincerely believe that some people are evil because they are owned by Satan. Some are pathologically and spiritually evil. If it is mental illness, that many say it is; then why not do kind and loving things for others, instead of evil? For an example; the Mitchell boy, who was… Read more »

Hello, FOTM, ツ
I’ve been lurking your fine site, and decided to pipe up on this one.
I don’t trust ANY of these fear porn “news” stories any more.
If I just 100% deny all of them, my odds of being wrong are much less than if I believe even some of them.
Just sayin’…

So, who’s up for arguing that “kids aren’t any different today than in years past?” They ARE different. Ask a teacher. One example: We dropped a beginning piano elective at our middle school because of a few key reasons..like, no funding for much schooling let alone ELECTIVES/cultural education…&, no one cares about art, music, drama, dance, choral music. Every hire these days is a job-for-life math teacher…& yet, we STILL can’t “do” math–nor do most of us CARE about the hypotenuse in real life. Want to discuss the life-cycle of a right angle at a casual gathering or a business… Read more »
