9. Joshua Phillips
Joshua Earl Patrick “Josh” Phillips was fourteen years old when he killed his neighbor Maddie Clifton who was only 8-years-old at the time. It appears that Joshua and Maddie were playing one afternoon when Joshua accidentally hit his neighbor with a baseball causing him to bleed and cry. Joshua had an abusive father with a violent temper which caused Joshua to panic and killed the boy to escape his father’s temper. Josh was sent to life imprisonment without any possibility of parole.
