Autumn Pasquale had a conversation on Facebook with one of the teen brothers accused of killing her just days before she died. The discussion, which is pictured below, involves a bicycle she had taken interest in for parts for her own "beloved" BMX bike. The 12-year-old girl had a love of motocross and extreme bicycling that allegedly led her straight into a trap.
The murdered New Jersey girl is asked by her accused killer to come over to his home over their discussion about his bike in the exchange displayed to the left. The 12-year-old girl was last seen on Saturday afternoon, but was later found dead in a recycling bin. She had been strangled to death and the two teen brothers reportedly admitted to killing her. They stole her bike and were presumably planning on keeping the parts. Earlier reports of Justin and Dante Robinson claim that the two are known in their neighborhood for stealing bikes and breaking them down for parts.
Her love of BMX bikes led to her demise, but it is in no way to blame. What should be blamed is the suspects of her death -- if they are guilty.
