SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. — Authorities announced Wednesday they have arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with an 11-year-old Sampson County girl’s death last year, according to WTVD.

McKenzie Mae Sessoms, a student at Salemburg Elementary School, was found unresponsive on her living room couch by her father on Sept. 6.

Sheriff Jimmy Thornton said the male suspect was arrested Tuesday night after an eight-month investigation. The suspect’s name has not been released by officials.

An autopsy revealed Sessoms had been sexually assaulted and suffocated.

The suspect is currently being held in a detention center in New Hanover County.

    Justice can only be served if that 14yr old P.O.S. being tried as an adult. Unfortunately I have no faith in the judicial system, mass media has given us to many examples of that.

    Just my opinion but almost all serial rapists and serial killers start at a very young age and DO NOT stop til they are either locked up for life or dead, it is a very sad thing for this poor girls family, they can at least make sure he is never in a position to do it again to someone elses daughter

    I think heshould get the death penalty do to the fact that he raped her then killed her… i dont kno what goes on in peoples head to where they have to kill now thats inhumane, giving him the chair is fair because he took another life you got to think about what that little girl went through and to be honest i think he should get worse… he took that girls virginity then killed her you wanna talk about inhumane what he did was inhumane enough said … death is his only way out…
