TESSA MAJORS’ SUSPECTED KILLER, 14, JUMPS FROM CAR, SPARKING MANHUNT

Majors, 18, was attacked and knifed to death on Dec. 11 in Morningside Park.

A 13-year-old boy accused of attacking the murdered freshman testified in court last Friday that he handed a knife to his friend, who then stabbed Majors so brutally he saw “feathers come out of her jacket.” The 13-year-old, whose name is not being used by Fox News, has been charged with second-degree murder, first and second-degree robbery and criminal possession of a weapon and was ordered held without bail by New York Family Court Judge Karen Lupuloff.

On Monday, the New York Post reported that a 14-year-old boy jumped out of a moving car and fled into the streets of Harlem while he and an adult were en route to meet with police in connection with the case. That suspect is believed to be the teen who fatally stabbed Majors.

A third suspect was arrested last week but was released hours later as police sought to build their case against him.
