Woman accused of luring teenage boy to his death claims to be member of vampire cult

A Florida woman jailed in the slaying of a 16-year-old boy says she and her cohorts were members of a vampire cult and that she loves drinking blood.

The New York Daily News says

Stephanie Pistey, 18, is accused of luring Jacob Hendershot into a trap where he was beaten to death in July by a pack of four men in Parker, Fla.

While Pistey says she did not drink Hendershot’s blood, she believes she is a vampire and must quench her thirst.

“Since I was like 12 every fiber in my body, basically everything, I know this is going to be crazy, but I believe that I’m a vampire and part werewolf,” Pistey told WBBH-TV.

She says she has drunk the blood of her 25-year-old fiancé and co-defendant William Chase.

According to WBBH TV

Parker Police originally believed Hendershot was beaten to death because Stephanie Pistey accused him of raping her.

“Jacob didn’t deserve to die. I didn’t even know he was going to die, but I honestly knew that they were going to beat him up and in my opinion he deserved to get the s*** beat out of him. He didn’t deserve to die,” Pistey said in an interview Monday.

Investigators say a group of Pistey’s friends lured Herndershot to a house, killed him, then dumped his body in a concrete enclosure.

CBS News says

Five people so far, including Pistey, are charged in connection to the crime with either murder or accessory after the fact. […]

Pistey has admitted she was at the home where Hendershot was murdered, but says she was just a babysitter and was watching co-defendant Tammy Morris’ two children, reports WTSP. Morris was also charged with accessory to murder.

The 18-year-old denies drinking Hendershot’s blood after the murder, but reportedly claims she has drunk the blood of her fiance and co-defendant William Chase, 25.
