Paris Bennett's house

This is the house where Paris Bennett murdered his four-year-old sister, Ella.

It is situated at 817 Davis Drive in Abilene, Texas.

The case received worldwide notoriety after Paris was interviewed in the documentary "Psychopath with Piers Morgan."

In the early hours of September 5th, 2007, 13-year-old Paris Bennett convinced his babysitter to leave. At the time, his mother, Charity Lee, was working late at a local bar.

Once the babysitter had left, the teenager decided to beat, strangle, and sexually assault his younger sister, Ella, who was asleep in her bed.

Shortly afterwards, he grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the young girl more than 15 times.

After murdering his sister, Paris called 911 and told them that he had accidentally killed someone. However, he quickly changed his story when he realized that the authorities were never going to believe that he had accidentally stabbed his sister multiple times.

Following his arrest, he claimed that he had suffered a hallucination and that he was "messed up". During questioning, he concocted a story about how he had hallucinated that Ella was a demonic entity.

Although he initially tried to convince everyone that he had lost his mind, he eventually came clean and admitted that it was a premeditated crime.

In reality, there was no demon. Instead, Paris brutally murdered his own sister just so he could inflict emotional trauma on his mother.

Charity was a recovering heroin addict who had been clean for more than a decade. However, one year before the murder took place, she relapsed and started using cocaine.

This caused a huge amount of friction between her and her son.

By 2007, Paris reportedly hated his mother so much that he was planning on killing her. However, he reasoned that murdering her would be much more difficult. As a result, he decided to punish her by targeting Ella instead.

During his confession, Paris calmly and coldly described the crime in great detail.

In September 2012, he was sentenced to 40 years in prison for capital murder.

The diagnosed psychopath, who is now in his late twenties, will be eligible for parole in February 2027.

Although his mother, Charity, has forgiven him and visits him regularly, she has admitted that she would fear for her safety if he were ever released on parole.

She would also fear for the safety of her younger daughter, whom she gave birth to after Paris was sent to prison.

If Paris Bennett is forced to serve the entirety of his prison sentence, he will not be released until 2047. By then, he will be 53 years old.
