On May 10, 2021, Mother's day, 13-year-old was found dead in the woods at the end of a cul-de-sac near her house in St. Johns, Jacksonville, Florida. Aiden Fucci, 14, who grew up in the same neighborhood and went to the same private school was arrested. Fucci's arrest went viral after he took a selfie in the backseat of a patrol car flashing a peace sign. Fucci was initially charged with second-degree murder in connection with Bailey's death.

In early May, Aiden Fucci, 14, met up with Tristyn Bailey, 13, his classmate from school. No one knew why but them.

They were together long after midnight and were seen together at around 1:45 in the morning, walking down Saddlestone Drive in their town of Jacksonville, Florida.

About two hours later, at 3:27, only one returned and held an extra pair of shoes. No one knew what happened until the following day when Tristyn was reported as missing.

Tristyn was stabbed 114 times across her body with a buck knife.

Forty-nine of her wounds were defensive – meaning she tried using her arms and hands to stop it initially, but after enough effort, the blade made contact with her face and penetrated her skull where the lethal blow and all subsequent attacks were made.

The stabbing was so intense that part of the blade broke off in her head and was discarded in the pond nearby.

The Florida teen was arrested the day after Mother's Day for the murder of his 13-year-old classmate, Tristyn Bailey. Now Fucci's mother has also been arrested in connection with the case and is being accused of tampering with evidence.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office released a statement on Crystal Smith's arrest. It said, in part, that the 35-year-old surrendered herself and "was subsequently booked into the St. Johns County Sheriff's Detention Center for tampering with evidence." Smith is currently being held on a $25,000 bond.
