A 14-year-old TikTok sensation has been charged with stabbing to death her disabled older sister, hours after her video went viral.
A 14-year-old girl who police accuse of stabbing her disabled sister to death posted a now-viral TikTok video before the alleged murder, according to reports.
Pennsylvania teen Claire Miller’s TikTok account has been shut down by the video-sharing app over a post she made the day before she allegedly stabbed her 19-year-old sister, Helen Miller, who had cerebral palsy and used a wheelchair.
Miller’s account, which is believed to be @spiritsandsuchconsulting, was flagged for violating the app’s “community guidelines”, which forbid users who “promote or are engaged in violence,” according to Business Insider.
It wasn’t immediately clear what the teen’s problematic TikTok video depicted, but screen shots from the time period reportedly show Miller venting about her father.
Miller was “hysterical” when she called police about 1am on Monday, local time, allegedly confessing “I stabbed my sister,” according to police documents.
Police said officers rushed to the home and allegedly found Miller in bloodstained pants as she tried to wash her hands in the snow.
The teen then directed officers to a bedroom where they found Helen Miller, 19, with a fatal stab wound to her neck. Helen was pronounced dead at 4.13am.
Miller is now being charged as an adult for murder. A police official said a motive has not yet been determined.
Miller had amassed 22,000 followers on TikTok before her account was taken down, though it was unclear if news of her arrest had boosted her numbers.
TikTok did not immediately return a request for comment.
