Convicted teen killer Aiden Fucci grumbles that he misses his mom’s “lemon peper chicken” in a troubled letter of apology for the gruesome slaying of a 13-year-old cheerleader he stabbed over 100 times.
Fucci worried that he was losing good memories in the letter he sent to the judge, the family of young Tristyn Bailey, and the rest of the community.
“Mom, I miss your chicken with lemon and pepper. I miss hugging you. In the letter, which was posted on firstcoastnews.com, he wrote, “I miss you.” “The longer I stay here, the more memories I lose and the more I forget. I’ll never forget you love me.”
Fucci, who was 16 at the time, wrote the letter on March 12, weeks before he was sentenced for Bailey’s death in 2021.
The Florida teen apologized nine times for the brutal murder for which he pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison.
Judge Lee Smith of the St. Johns County Circuit Court said that the teen stabbed Bailey 114 times to “feel what it was like to kill someone.”
Then, he threw her body away somewhere near Jacksonville.
The news source said that Fucci’s mother was accused of changing evidence about Bailey’s murder.
Fucci’s letter, which was written on loose leaf paper and sent from jail, was reportedly made public the day before he was sentenced.
He began the letter by saying, “I’m sorry for all the pain I’ve caused the Baily family.”
He wrote, “I’m sorry to the friends, brothers, sisters, Mom, Dad, and other family members.” “It’s too bad you didn’t know her for that long.”
He went on to apologize to the community, writing: “i’m sorry and i know my apawlogy will not fix anything or bring her back but i hop it help in some way.”
Fucci also apologized to his siblings and dad, who he said “had a bad spot in work because of me,” adding about his family: “I miss the fun we had like fourwhelling, paintballing (sic), going on the long car trips. Dad you’re special because you made fun out of nothing.”
