32-year-old Brandon O’Quinn Rasberry was found dead in an RV park in Nixon, Texas. The young boy, who was just shy of 8 years old at the time, detailed the shooting during an interview at a child advocacy center.

He described taking a 9 mm pistol from his grandfather's truck, entering Rasberry's RV, and firing the fatal shots before returning the gun. Shockingly, the boy had no prior connection to Rasberry and offered no motive for the killing.

Investigators began to make a connection between the child and the crime while they were examining a separate crime. While they were investigating the boy, after he threatened to assault and kill another student, they learned he had made statements about killing someone 2 years prior.

Investigators were able to trace the pistol to a pawn shop and match shell casings found at the scene to the weapon. Despite the confession, the boy cannot face charges under Texas law due to his age at the time of the crime.
