A Picture Perfect Kid
Help promote this title
A teenage killer who strikes without warning. A victim who never saw it coming. A family divided by tragedy. What made 16 year old Joshua Allen Wolf kill Carol Jean Lindley, the grandmother who had raised him since early childhood? Joshua claimed mental illness, the authorities said greed. Once in custody, Joshua claims he can't remember the events of that Saturday afternoon when he walked out onto a balcony took aim and shot his grandmother as she watched television in the family room below. But the police think otherwise. They think he knew exactly what he was doing when he fired the shot. And they think he knew what he was doing when he took Carol Lindley's ATM card and raided her bank account over the next few days as she lay dead in the house, and when he doused the house and her body with gasoline and set a fire meant to destroy all evidence of his crime. Described by some as the picture perfect kid, Joshua had it all -- looks, personality, money and athletic ability. But, even that couldn't hide forever the darkness lurking just below the surface.
