Aiden Fucci Update: Tristyn Bailey Case Looking at Accused's Snapchat Videos

The State Attorney's Office in Florida has released a list of the witnesses and evidence collected for the murder investigation into 14-year-old Aiden Fucci, who has been accused of killing 13-year-old Tristyn Bailey by stabbing her 114 times.

On Thursday, the office of State Attorney R.J. Larizza for Florida's Seventh Judicial Circuit, announced the list, also known as discovery, which includes 154 potential witnesses and several different types of evidence, including Snapchat videos, according to Action News Jax.

The witness list includes the St. Johns County medical examiner Predrag Bulic, officials from the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office and Florida Department of Law Enforcement analysts.

Fucci's mother Crystal Smith, who is facing a charge of alleged evidence tampering in connection to the murder, is also included on the witness list. Smith is set to appear in court on July 26 on the charge after turning herself to police on June 5.

The state's discovery lists several different types of evidence collected for the case, including Fucci's school records, surveillance clips from the 14-year-old's residence and videos from five different cameras in his neighborhood.

T-shirts and shoes collected from Fucci are also included on the list alongside Snapchat videos, content from the phones of Smith's and the 14-year-old's father Jason Fucci as well as audio recordings of them all.

Fucci pleaded not guilty in Bailey's murder on Thursday June 3, which moved his scheduled arraignment in St. John's County Court from June 10 to July 28.

The 14-year-old was arrested on May 10, just a day after Bailey's dead body was discovered in a wooded area near St. Johns, Florida.

Fucci was taken into custody by officers after Bailey's body was discovered and following statements the 14-year-old made "during questioning," according to a press release from the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

Police confirmed that they were investigating posts made by Fucci on social media, including a photo he took of himself in the back of a deputy's vehicle, where he wrote: "Hey guys has inybody (sic) seen Tristyn lately."

The State Attorney's Office announced on May 27 that it had filed a motion to charge Fucci as an adult with first-degree premeditated murder, which could see the 14-year-old sentenced to life in prison.

Speaking about the motion, Larizza said: "It's a sad decision, and a sad state of affairs. But it was clear to us after we looked at what happened, that it was not only appropriate to charge the defendant as an adult, but it was really the only choice that we can make."

Larizza said that she hopes that "parents will learn something from this, this vicious and brutal murder, and that is that you need to know what your kids are doing and what they are saying.

"Because while we might not be able to stop these brutal and vicious murders from happening, we ought to at least try."

Newsweek has contacted Larizza's office for comment.
