Teen kills young neighbor, claims it was "ahmazing"

OMG.  I didn't even hear about this story - a 15 year old girl killed her 9 year old neighbor, just to see what it was like.  Of course, she was publicly falling apart for months before this heinous crime.  My question is the same as it always is - where were the adults in this girl's life? Parents? Teachers? She says she went to church - didn't her pastor or youth adviser notice how troubled she was? I'm not excusing her horrible crime, of course, I'm just wondering wtf is wrong with adults these days, that they let the children that they are responsible for deteriorate before their eyes while they do nothing to intervene. They are culpable too!!!

Journal read during sentencing phase of Alyssa Bustamante trial 
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- A Missouri teenager who admitted stabbing, strangling and slitting the throat of a young neighbor girl wrote in her journal on the night of the killing that it was an "ahmazing" and "pretty enjoyable" experience - then headed off to church with a laugh.
The words written by Alyssa Bustamante were read aloud in court Monday as part of a sentencing hearing to determine whether she should get life in prison or something less for the October 2009 murder of her neighbor, 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten, in a small town west of Jefferson City.
