Autumn Pasquale, 12, was found in a recycling bin this week in Clayton, New Jersey after she was reported missing on Saturday evening. Just 24 hours after her body was discovered, police took two teenage boys–brothers–into custody for her murder.

The boys, 15 and 17–whose names have not been released because they are underage–are charged with first degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, tampering with evidence, theft, and disposing of a body. The younger boy is also charged with luring, as he allegedly got Autumn to come into his house, where the murder took place. Police say the marks on her body indicate she was strangled; no sexual assault is suspected. The motive is shocking: the boys are said to have wanted her beloved BMX bike, which she was riding at the time.

Pasquale’s body was found not long after an exhaustive search of the area by a party of volunteers turned up nothing; a tip from the boy’s mother, who said she saw something suspicious on her sons’ Facebook pages, led police to her door.

“Everyone who’s been involved from the start has a right to know what happened. We’re going to find that out. But I think today we need to remember a young girl, and law enforcement will continue to do it’s job so we can get the answers we’re all looking for,” said prosecutor Sean Dalton.

Dalton said they are considering taking the boys to adult court, regardless of their ages.

“Today we mourn the loss of a young girl … whose life was cut short before it really began. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her parents, her family. It is my hope that the arrests today provide a measure of closure, that the individuals responsible for their daughter’s death will be held responsible,” he said.

    As a mother of a baby girl that shares a name with the beautiful lil Angel that was stolen from God and the world and as an Auntie to another beautiful lil girl that is about the same age this story was close to my heart and I prayed and am crying now that those prayers weren’t enough to bring her home.

    THIS SENSELESS KILLING OF INNOCENT LIVES IS NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL WE TEACH EVERY LIVING HUMAN BEING IN THIS COUNTRY AND ON THIS PLANET THAT EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. A MICROSCOPIC BODY THAT HAS A BEATING HEART AND IS LIVING IN IT’S MOTHERS WOMB TO A WORN AND WRINKLED BODY THAT HAS LIVED MANY YEARS ON THIS EARTH.

    AND THERE NEEDS TO BE A PUNISHMENT THAT WILL HELP DETER ANYONE FROM TAKING ANOTHER’S LIFE! PERIOD!

    I AM SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THESE BABIES BEING STOLEN AND MURDERED!!

    it is just a ruthless thing anymore that these “kids” in our socity are raised up well, and they this kinda of stuff happens. It would have been better to work for something instead of taking a life for a little thing like a bike. I hope these boys find out real quick what are justice system is realy like on the inside!!!

    After hearing this news my 10 year old daughter started flipping out. She drew a picture of the boys. She then scribbled the picture of the boys out so bad there were holes in the paper. She then took the paper and ripped it up and stomped on it. After calming her down she went right back and ripped the paper up more and stomped it again. It took an hour to calm her down. When we went to eat dinner ever one was dishing food out and talking she had her head down and hands to pray oblivious to everyone else. We stopped and held hands and she said grace. She asked god to hold Autumn tight and take care of her. After dinner she apologized to the poor little piece of paper. She was up well past bed time upset and unable to understand how someone could do that to a little girl. If you wanted her bike just push her down and take the bike.

    I am sorry the boys mom had to turn them in that had to be hard, but I am glad she found a way to face it.

    This earth has become a rotten place that is no longer safe. We need to fix that.

    My daughter wanted people to know how what happened to Autumn made her feel.

    I wish I had words of comfort for Autumn’s family and friends, but there are none and there is no way to make sense of what happened.

    I can’t believe it. I just can’t believe it. This innocent child has had her life stolen from her. A beautiful family has had their child stolen from them ALL FOR A BIKE!? Why? Just.. Why?

  • tim

    These two monsters should be immediately given to autumns family to be tortured and disposed of however they see fit- without any trial whatsoever. They have forfeited their right to share this earth. This will not bring autumn back but swift justice is the least that can be done. These worthless pieces of garbage need to be disposed of as quickly and horribly possible, regardless of their age or background.

  • Juanita

    these two monsters who took a little girls life all for a bike hand them over to an all mans prison let them get tortured day after day let them get strangled to the point of passing out dont let them slip away fast torture until the point of begging and then let them look into autumms parents faces as they slip into an eternal hell which they will go to…
