Moment Aiden Fucci learns he will spend the rest of life in prison for murder of Tristyn BaileyApr 06, 2023
I would say that this case is probably the most difficult and impactful that this county of St John's has faced in the 20 years that I have been practicing law, and in the 30 years that I have lived and worked all over the northeast of Florida, this case is one of the few that had this level and this type of impact on the community, this Court gives this factor Great weight as to the last two remaining factors, the effect if there is some immaturity, impetuosity or lack of appreciation of the risks and consequences of the defendant's participation in the crime and the effect of the crime, excuse me, thank you and the nature and circumstances of the crime committed by the defendant, these factors combine in some way 114 stab wounds 49 defensive wounds 35 wounds to the head and neck 29 to the back and shoulder and six fatal wounds this court has reviewed and seen more than its share of autopsy photos.
The autopsy photos in this particular case were particularly difficult. 49 defensive wounds indicate that Tristan Bailey was aware that he was conscious and that he was doing everything possible to defend himself from this attack. He suffered a painful and horrible death at the hands of someone he trusted. His screams were most likely muffled by his own suffocating lungs. He lured her to a secluded place in the woods near her home by a person she trusted and he took her there under false pretenses, there was a high level of premeditation in this case based on prior statements he made to her girlfriend and his friend, he indicated that he was going to kill.

Someone at that
momentdetermined that it was going to be Tristan Bailey. I don't know, but there was going to be a victim. He told him what he was going to do: he would take them to a wooded place where he would stab them, kill them, and then run away so he could continue killing. She told her best friend that she wanted to kill someone to see how she felt and she wanted to watch them bleed to death. This particular crime was committed with his weapon of choice as a knife which he nicknamed poker which required a type of up close and personal
murderthat is rare.
It's unique. The court accepts that in 2019 of all juvenile ar
rests only seven percent were violent and only one percent of them were homicides. is clearly an outlier and it was shocking and is shocking to the conscience. This court finds that the defendant's participation in this crime was not the result of immaturity or impetuosity. She understood the risks and consequences of his actions. He previously told his girlfriend that he was going to do this which clearly shows that he had been planning it, he tried to cover it up by getting rid of the
murderweapon and throwing it in a lake, then he tried to hide evidence by hiding his shoes, shirt and jeans taking a shower by sneaking into his house and then the actions immediately after with these Snapchat videos in the back of the police car and the story he made up about him pushing her and her hitting her head, which was clearly refuted by the video evidence in this case, all that shows and this court determines that this was not an immature or impetuous type of crime, it makes it unique, it makes it extraordinary, what is also very worrying is that this crime had no motive, it was not done out of greed, it was not done as retaliation. retribution or revenge it was not a crime of passion it was not a crime that was committed because he felt rejected by her it was not done in a fit of uncontrollable anger there was no reason there was no purpose it was done for no reason other than to satisfy the inner desire of this accused of feeling what it was like to kill someone, it was committed in a cold, calculated and premeditated manner without any pretense of moral or legal justification and it was heinous, atrocious and cruel, this factor and this factor alone makes this case and this accused is more than unique, it is for this reason and for all the reasons stated above that leads Discord to the conclusion that there is only one appropriate sentence in this case, Mr.
