Aiden Fucci Wiki – Aiden Fucci Bio
Aiden Fucci has been charged with first-degree murder charges in the homicide of his 13-year-old schoolmate, Tristyn Bailey, after reviewing all of the evidence showing the young victim suffered a “horrific” attack before her death.
Bailey’s body was found in a wooded area in Durbin Crossing Township, about 20 miles south of Jacksonville, on May 9, just hours after her family reported it.
He is 14 years old.
Tristyn Bailey Murder
Bailey, a student at Patriot Oaks Academy, was found dead on May 9 in a wooded area near her home in northwest St. Johns County, near Jacksonville.
Clothing with traces of blood was found in Fucci’s home. The presumed weapon, a buck knife typically used for hunting, was recovered in a pond near the crime scene.

Since his arrest, Fucci, who has been held at a juvenile detention center, was in the process of being transferred to an adult facility on Thursday, Larizza said. As a minor, however, he will be separated from the adult population.
Bailey’s Family Statement
The Bailey family released a statement after Thursday’s news conference, recognizing the work of the sheriff’s office and state attorney’s office while thanking people in the community for their support.
In announcing that Aiden Fucci would be charged as an adult, R.J. Larizza, state attorney for the 7th Circuit, described a premeditated act during a news conference at the St. Johns County courthouse.
“At least 49 of those stab wounds were to the hands, arms, and the head. They were defensive in nature,” Larizza said.
He added, “The bottom line is that premeditation could be inferred certainly from just the sheer number of stab wounds that Tristyn Bailey had to suffer. Every time that arm went back, and every time that arm went down, that was premeditation.”
Because Fucci has been charged as an adult, the USA TODAY Network names him even though he is a juvenile.
Premeditation was also indicated by statements Fucci reportedly made to witnesses in the weeks leading up to the murder that he “intended to kill someone by taking them in the woods and stabbing them,” Larizza said.
Asked if Fucci was suffering from mental health issues or receiving counseling, Larizza said no.
