Clearwater, FL – Samantha Broadhead, 11, and her boyfriend, 15-year-old Jack Ault, are in a heap ‘o trouble, Demonites. The pair allegedly plotted to kill Samantha’s mother with fire. It is being reported that early Tuesday morning, the day before Nancy Broadhead’s 48th birthday, Samantha and Jack poured gasoline on Nancy’s bed and floor as she slept. After setting the fire, the two fled in Nancy’s car. At about 1:00 a.m., Nancy was awakened by a smoke alarm. She was able to escape the home, but sustained serious burns and suffered from smoke inhalation. The house is now uninhabitable. According to police spokeswoman Beth Watts, a preliminary investigation shows the motive to be “your typical teenage angst.” Watts went on to say that tension escalated “when the mom confronted the daughter about stealing some of her cigarettes.” Teenage angst? Nah – I’ve seen teenage angst and that ain’t fucking it. Samantha later returned to the scene and agreed to be taken in for questioning – her partner in crime was picked up at a friend’s house. Both kids are going to be charged with attempted murder and arson – Jack will be looking at an extra charge of grand theft. Jack was taken to juvie and Samantha is being detained under the Baker Act. But, that’s not the end of this crazy little love story….
Seems Jack has been causing trouble for years – his very first arrest, for battery, was at the ripe old age of 8. He was arrested a total of five times just this year, the charges ranging from domestic battery to probation violations to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Nice kid, huh? And the victim, Nancy Broadhead, has had her share of trouble as well. A spokesperson for DCF stated that there is an “extensive family history” of cases involving both Samantha and Jack, but no open cases. It is being reported that the police have been called to the home at least 7 times in the past year on domestic disturbance complaints. Nancy has been arrested several times and convicted of child neglect, DUI, indecent exposure, and resisting an officer. In 2005, she faced charges of child abuse and battery, but the charges were dropped. Heh…dysfunction at it’s finest. I think there’s a couple of gene pools out there that could have used some serious chlorination a long, long time ago.
