A Satan-obsessed boy sexually assaulted and murdered 14-year-old Ana Kriegel in an abandoned house in front of his 'voyeuristic' friend. The two boys, who are both 14, lured Kriegel to the building before brutally killing her and leaving her with more than 60 different kinds of injuries, reports the Sun.
Ana was announced missing on May 14, 2018, and was found three days later, lying naked with a ligature around her neck in the house in Dublin. According to a post mortem, she was violently sexually assaulted and the cause of death was given as blunt force trauma to the head and neck. Her killers named Boy A and Boy B were found guilty of murder recently and the first was also convicted of aggravated sexual assault.
Ana's parents- Patric and Geraldine Kriegel had adopted her from Russia when she was 2-years- old were seen hugging each other as the verdicts were read out. Boy B's father had stormed out of the court and then returned clapping and yelling, "An innocent child is going to prison." The jurors at the Dublin Central Criminal Court also heard how Ana who was eager to make friends and was often bullied was a vulnerable and an easy target.
She had gone out thinking she was meeting a boy she liked and was dead 45 minutes later. She had taken a 3km journey from home with Boy B to the house where Boy A was waiting.
As Boy A started the attack, Boy B stood by "voyeuristically" before he murdered and dumped her naked body.
Upon searching Boy A's home, the authorities found a book which had a "satanic pledge" and also a set of homework club rules which referred to a "satanic cult".
The jury in the trial were told that Boy A had searched for abandoned places in Lucan and the most gruesome torture methods in history. A total of 12,000 pornographic images were found on Boy A’s devices. Aside from those images, Boy A’s devices had internet searches for “child porn”.
One such rule stated "No talking about Jesus or God, only Satan" and Boy A tried to justify it by saying it was only for fun. Several blood colored objects were removed from the home and included a 92cm-long wooden stick with a nail sticking out of both ends as well as a concrete block. Officers also found blood on Ana's bra and more blood on her leggings and underwear. During the trial, both Boy A and Boy B tried to blame each other and Boy B claimed that he was "set up" by his friend.
During the six week trial, the jurors were able to see through the boys' claims and lies and they were convicted after 14 hours and 25 minutes of deliberation. Both Boy A and B have been kept in custody until July 15. While outside the court, Ana's father said that she was "our strength" and her mother added, "Ana was a dream come true for us, and she always will be. She’ll stay in our hearts forever loved and forever cherished. We love you, Ana."
