Sida OsmanFORT WORTH, TX — The 13-year-old who used a bowling ball to kill a 5-year-old boy pleaded guilty to capital murder this morning in exchange for 23 years behind bars.

The trial for the unidentified teen, now 14-years-old, was scheduled to start this morning, but prosecutors were able to reach a deal with the teen’s lawyers.

Back in June, Sida Oswan went missing after going out to ride his bike. Within 24 hours, his dead body was discovered inside a fenced backyard of a vacant house. A day later, the teen was arrested on suspicion of the boy’s murder.

He was identified after two teens told police that they found the suspect crying and that he took them to see Sida’s body while admitting that he’d killed the boy. After he was taken into custody, it was revealed that the teen used a bowling ball to strike Sida in the head multiple times.

The teen told police that he was angry with Sida because the boy kept “pestering” him about taking him to the store. So he took the boy in the backyard of the vacant home and struck him in the head with the bowling ball. After Sida fell to the ground, the teen said that he straddled Sida and struck him in the head again, “similar to a football player spiking a football,” crushing the little boy’s skull.

The teen was not eligible to be certified as an adult because of his young age, but prosecutors asked the grand jury to let them seek “determinate sentencing” against the teen, which would expand the punishment range the teen would face if convicted. The grand jury allowed it.

With the new sentencing guidelines in place, the teen faced up to 40 years behind bars. As part of the plea agreement, the teen was sentenced to 23 years and can be transferred to an adult prison after his 16th birthday.

The teen did make a statement in court at the conclusion of the hearing. As he stood crying, he faced the the courtroom gallery and said, “I just want the family to know I”m sorry.”

    My 5 year old daughter is a huge pest- but i would never hit her, hand or bowling ball.
    Yall need to learn to walk away! (I usually find solace in the shower lol)

  • come_and_see

    It’s amazing the horrible things humans can do to each other regardless of age.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Why.The.Fuck???

  • Malodorous

    So he took the boy in the backyard of the vacant home and struck him in the head with the bowling ball. After Sida fell to the ground, the teen said that he straddled Sida and struck him in the head again…

    So would this be considered a Spare?

  • Buffettgirl

    You got the up-tick because it was too funny… oh so wrong, but funny as hell in a dark and twisted way!

  • Buffettgirl

    The only thing I wanted to murder at 13 was a bag of potato chips… damn! I had a not so great childhood and killing someone never crossed my mind!

  • Lena60

    No, cuz the kid was not spared 🙁

  • Leasha

    So who the fuck was this older kid, the 5 year old’s brother? Baby sitter? Nice to know Sida’s life was only worth 23 years. Might as well let this murderer roam the streets and continue killing now so he doesn’t have to be dealt with later. No hope or “rehabilitation” for sick fucks like this. Are child killers on the bottom of the food chain in prison, or is that only child rapists? I REALLY hope they hate child killers just as much.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    His head’s a bit bowling ball shaped…

  • Shawna Muldoon

    that was my question, this poor baby is robbed of his life- but his killer is out before 40?! That’s fucked up

  • Delaney3030

    there were definitely multiple strikes involved.

  • mean birch

    Ok thank you. I really wanted to post that comment but was spared.

  • FrikkenFrak

    I’m all for a good laugh at a stupid perp, but lame humor at the manner of death for an innocent 5 year-old? A new low by all.

    Good thing I’m not his mom. I’d go vigilante. And I’m very adroit at uncovering identities.

    Yeah, I’m a kill joy. Sometimes someone has to be the voice of sanity.

  • Malodorous

    What I don’t get is, when I make a serious comment about something, I inevitably end up with down-votes galore – but I go blatantly fishing for them like this, and no fucking bites? Not a goddamn single one. WTF people? This was a down-vote lightning rod.

    In my defense, I did carefully avoid mocking the child… I merely made a bad pun over the manner of the crime. There’s nothing funny at all about some 5yo being brained to death because he wanted to visit the store. And I feel badly for the perp, though not nearly as badly as I do for the murdered child or their families. This kid was crying in court over what I did, and I doubt he was faking it. His life isn’t over, but it sort of is too.

    Uncovering my identity? LOL. Just PM me your Facebook account in the forums, and await the impending Friend Add Request… Some forty-something Demonites already know more about me than they’d really care to. Fuck, you could probably even find out where I live from @LeaveMeBe:disqus – just threaten clowns and she’ll likely spill the beans.

  • You need no defense. FF makes some brilliant posts but, quite frankly, I think she’s forgotten where she is.

    Dark humor is officially condoned, here. I want to feel dubious and awkward about laughing at your jokes. If you’re not pushing the envelope, you’re just not trying hard enough.

  • “…and can be transferred to an adult prison after his 16th birthday.”

    Fucked up. Did he do something unimaginably heinous? Of course, and for this he should be monitored indefinitely. But this is some bullshit. Housing minors in adult prisons should be unconstitutional. They are at dramatically increased risk for assault and rape. And if you don’t mind that, you’re an animal.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Sorry, but great minds think alike 🙂

  • Aussie Sabbath

    It looks like I caught one of your downvotes with my comparison of the kid’s head to a bowling ball. I’ll pay it forward and tip you one 🙂

  • Malodorous

    That’s the spirit!

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    Kid’s gonna get raped, no question. On one hand, you’re basically a kid, on the other.. you killed a baby with a bowling ball..

  • GracieW

    Hey 13 year old killer–you’re THIRTEEN. Teenagers are by their very nature…pests. Aren’t you glad no one ever took a bowling ball to your brain matter?

  • Jessie

    ‘Pests’ is putting it mildly… More like assholes.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Oooh. If you’re looking for new FB friends, I might take you up on that. :p

  • Cheeseburger Sanchez

    He was a neighbor. Sida’s mother had just told him to come in the house, and he hopped on his bike and ran off. He caught up with this boy, and that was when he was killed. It was just a few days after a little girl on the other side of town was found dead, in the middle of the road in her neighborhood. It was a very tense, scary time in this city.

  • Malodorous

    I’m still newstarshipsmell in the forums. (I’m still newstarshipsmell on Disqus, too – I just changed my display name as a joke, and am too lazy to go change it back.)

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    It’s okay Tarsh–we all know what a stinky bastard you are.

    As for my forum name, it’s a secret to everybody. 😉

    ETA: Everybody but the mods, that is.

  • Malodorous

    That’s no fun.

  • LuvsHorror

    Sounds more like a split.

  • I thought this was you.

  • Der Mac

    Unfortunately, 98% of the country has lost the ability to empathize with this in the brave new millennium. That, and crooked judges make way too much money off these things nowadays. The hate merely feeds the violence…

  • Malodorous

    Braving the FP again, eh?

  • Lena60

    I did too, thats 3 for 3

  • Plague78

    I’m betting the only reason the teen said he was sorry is because he got caught and is getting sent to prison. Just my opinion, but the prosecutors should not have gone for a plea deal and tried to send that little shit to prison for the full 40 years.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I don’t know which is more horrifying: a kid killing another kid -or- a bunch of adults sentencing a kid to a life of hell… Wait… A life of hell equates to torture and group forethought… yeah that one. SSSSoooommme ones going to get promoted in the DA’s office. No offense to the one good lawyer out there, but you soulless assholes suck when you create and perpetuate your bullshit punishing guidelines.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Head in the toilet water with the slamming lid noise is a riot!

  • JohnQknowitall

    WHAT THE FLYING FUCK… HOW THE FLYING FUCK CAN ANYONE THINK THIS IS JUSTICE!!!?

  • CT

    All of this yelling is giving me a headache. But I will say I agree.

  • CT

    40 something? Excuse me son but who are you calling out as 40 somethings? OH WAIT, you mean 40 something people know your name – not 40 somethings.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I’m sorry. Here is a pill and since we are on DD don’t ask what it is.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Wear your down votes as badges of honor! You at least made someone think for a second.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    I’m fairly certain the dead kid’s mother and family know the killer kid’s name and probably where his family resides.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    He confessed to his friends prior to being arrested by the police. I am not sure “caught” is the correct term.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    I agree.

  • Texas Ranger

    Well Daphne was a teenager catching spooks on TV when I was a kid… I’m in the 40’s….so you must be 50 something by my mathing.

  • Texas Ranger

    I read somewhere they gave prisoners condoms….so not all bad….

  • CT

    Screw you hippie, I have not fallen over that cliff yet.

  • Texas Ranger

    Well damn….I was wondering where you disappeared to…..figured you were either in Zihuatanejo…or doing Off-the-books Wet Ops in Afghanistan again. I will try to remember Mal “oderous” = newstarship “Smell” are the same. I feel so stupid not catching that sooner.

  • Texas Ranger

    Hippie? No, no, no. Shaggy & Scooby were the hippies. It was You and Fred that wore the shocks out on the Mystery van….

  • 18th40

    Living on the edge today ?

  • Texas Ranger

    Yeah…. I gotta drive to Dallas and pick up some furniture from my sister at 6 am tomorrow….and I was hoping CT would kill me before then.

  • 18th40

    Send her a couple of clown pictures.

  • Leasha

    I’d say beating a kindergartener with a fucking bowling ball just because he got easily annoyed is heinous. The victim was still practically a toddler. I hope his murderer gets beaten to death by adult inmates. Hell, even the young ones, as long as he’s gone and ceases to waste tax payers’ money.

  • DeadlockVictim

    Anyone else curious where the hell he got a bowling ball? Hammerspace?

  • shanshanity

    What a totally random murdering tool.Are Bowling Balls just laying round collecting dust in vacant lots these days?

  • Lena60

    I have, well actually I was pushed.

  • Lena60

    You live close by Dallas area? I live in Grandprairie.I prefer Fortworth over Dallas any day.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I promised I would never ever give your address to anyone and I keep my promises. I’ve also promised to hunt you down and maim you for some of the shit you’ve pulled on me and I’ve promised that visit will be a surprise. Now please explain why my age had to be dragged into this.

  • LeaveMeBe

    She aims to maim, not kill. Just FYI.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I’ve always had issues with having a definition for a child (under the age of 18) yet when it comes to criminal charges of any kind you are automatically charged as an adult at the age of 17 and CAN be charged as adult at other ages. I agree that sending him to adult prison at 16 is wrong. Wait until he is legally an adult, at that means 18 years old. Period.

  • Malodorous

    Who said anything about age? I was giving a rough estimate of the number of Demonites I’ve friended on FB. Way to out yourself as a 40-something-year-old.

  • Texas Ranger

    couple hours away. Ft worth is more my style too. Dallas is very….plastic and bleachy….

  • FrikkenFrak

    I have a response, but it is a from the gut response which is NEVER a good approach for me.

    I’m going to contemplate this. It could be that this is the wrong environment for me. I am a victim advocate/ball crusher of evil. I could be posting to the wrong type of site.

  • LeaveMeBe

    Meh. I’ve never hidden my age, it was just an opportunity to harass you.

  • VenusDoom3

    This bastard’s sorry sucks my ass. Torture and death to this degenerate little fucking maggot. FUCK, this pisses me off. Having a 5-year-old boy at home might have something to do with it, but goddammit.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Ok, so i took a step back (which I needed to) and have concluded you are right. I sometimes get carried away with my emotions. (sigh).

    No one is being bullied and people are engaging in dark humor about death. Which has it’s place. It’s a way of coping sometimes, or sometimes we just have to laugh. It’s not my place to chastise anyone, though I admit it’s sometimes hard for me when the humor is at the victim and not the perp.

    I’m not sure what happened to me….I came here years ago to read crime stories and have a few laughs. I think after years of these stories, I changed. Not that it’s a bad thing. It’s actually a very GOOD thing. I’ve turned into this….I don’t know what..someone deeply moved and very aware.

    But you are RIGHT, I have to remember where I am.

    I love the DD community and your always thoughtful ways of looking at things, Athena. You are as grounded as I am passionate. Your presence on here has always been given me equilibrium. I am grateful for you. So very grateful!

  • Malodorous

    Hey Frik, your original reply to me was perfectly valid. I’ve always enjoyed your commentary, even (as in this case) when it’s simply reining in my notoriously pushing-the-limits-of-just-barely-this-side-of-the-pale sense of humor. My filter works poorly at best, and my judgement of what’s acceptable to others, well… maybe I should speak of my lack of judgement, rather.

    I would feel awful if you felt compelled to leave in part over something stupid I said – I’d much rather you speak up than slink away. For the record, none of your down-votes came from my corner.

  • CT

    WAIT, I am just seeing this NOW? Missed opportunities, the story of my life.
