In May 2021, a shocking crime took place in St. Johns County, Florida: a 13-year-old girl named Tristyn Bailey was found dead in a wooded area, apparently the victim of a brutal homicide. As investigators began to piece together what had happened, one name kept coming up: Aiden Fucci, a 14-year-old boy who was known to Tristyn and who had been seen with her shortly before her death. In June, Fucci was arrested and charged with second-degree murder

Aiden Fucci is a teenager who was born in 2006 and raised in St. Johns County, Florida. According to reports, he had a troubled past and had been in trouble with the law before. In 2019, he was arrested for battery and criminal mischief after allegedly attacking his mother. In 2020, he was charged with criminal mischief again after reportedly breaking into a construction site and causing damage.

After Tristyn Bailey’s body was found, investigators quickly focused on Aiden Fucci as a suspect. He had been seen with her the night before her death, and he was known to have a troubled history. As the investigation continued, more evidence began to point to Fucci: blood was found on his clothes and shoes, and his phone reportedly contained pictures of Tristyn’s body.

In early June, Fucci was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. He reportedly made statements to his friends indicating that he had killed Tristyn, and his DNA was found on her body. Fucci has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

As of this writing, Aiden Fucci’s trial has not yet taken place. However, he is being charged as an adult, which means that he could face serious consequences if convicted. If found guilty of second-degree murder, Fucci could be sentenced to life in prison.
