Neighbor Lured 8-Year-Old To Her Death, Police Say

Adrian Jerry Gonzalez, the 15-year-old boy charged as an adult in the death of 8-year-old Madyson Middleton, was known in his neighborhood as a quiet kid who played with a yo-yo. But his Instagram presence portrayed a young man complaining of loneliness and anxiety.

On the day Madyson disappeared, he posted a video of himself playing “Mad World” on the piano and captioned it with the lyrics “The Dreams in which I’m Dying are the Best I’ve ever had,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

Madyson was lured by the boy, who lived in the same complex, into his apartment, where she was killed, Santa Cruz Police Chief Kevin Vogel said Tuesday at a news conference.

The teen carried Madyson’s body downstairs, placed her body in a blue recycling bin and concealed her, he said.
