Reads more like a gang or Wiccan initiation.
Some methods of advancement in Satanic ritualism involves human sacrifice and at least a blood letting. A 14-yr old girl would be a ripe initiate for that type of crime.
I wish that were true. Here’s a few quick sources for you.
Elizabeth Morton, aged fifteen, was hanged at Gallows Hill, Nottingham on the 8th of April 1763 for the murder of the two year old child of her employer, John Oliver.
Sarah Shenston, an eighteen year old, was hanged at Moor Heath on the outskirts of Shrewsbury in Shropshire on Thursday, the 22nd of March 1792. She suffered for the murder of her illegitimate male child whose throat she had cut immediately after birth, on the 30th of September 1791.
Ann Mead, aged sixteen was found guilty of the murder of Charles Proctor, aged sixteen months, by feeding him a spoonful of arsenic at Royston in Hertfordshire. She expiated her crime on the New Drop gallows outside Hertford prison on Thursday the 31st of July 1800, watched by a large crowd.
David Duffield, aged 17,was hanged at the Bowling Green, Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire on the 6th of April 1801 for the murder of 11 year old Anne Morgan. Duffield was afterwards hanged in chains at Tavernspite. He was the last juvenile to suffer this fate in the 19th century. His execution and gibbeting cost Pembrokeshire £20 7s & 4d.
Mary Voce was hanged at Gallows Hill, Nottingham on Tuesday, the 16th of March 1802 for poisoning her child. It is thought that she was born in 1788, which would make her only fourteen. It is interesting that the newspapers of the day found little noteworthy in the execution of fourteen year old girl and gave her story very little coverage.
Seventeen year old Mary Morgan was hanged at Presteigne in Radnorshire in 1805 for the murder of her illegitimate child. She had become pregnant after being seduced by a member of the local gentry in Presteigne and then abandoned by him. She was found guilty of the killing and sentenced to death on Thursday, the 11th of April, her execution taking place two days later on Saturday the 13th, as was required by law at the time, with her body to be dissected afterwards. There are two memorial stones to her in the churchyard at Presteigne.
On the 6th of May 1806, 15 year old Peter Atkinson suffered at York Castle for cutting and maiming Elizabeth Stockton.
Sarah Fletcher, aged 19, was hanged on the roof of Horsemonger Lane Gaol in Surrey on the 5th of April 1813 for child murder.
On the 22nd of March 1819, 16 year old Hannah Bocking became probably the youngest girl to be executed in the 19th century when she was publicly hanged outside Derbys Friar Gate Gaol for the murder, by poisoning, of Jane Grant.
