A Florida teenager charged with accessory to the murder of a 16-year-old boy claims that she's a vampire, fueling police suspicion that the alleged killers were involved in a vampire cult. In an inverview, Stephanie Pistey, 18, told a local news station, "Since I was like, 12...I know this is going to be crazy, but I believe that I'm a vampire. Part of a vampire and part of a werewolf."

In July, 2011, police say Pistey's friends and codefendants lured Jacob Hendershot to a house where Pistey was babysitting, killed him, and dumped his body in a storm drain. Police suspect Hendershot was killed because Pistey had accused him of raping her.

While Pistey denies involvement with the killing, she reportedly claims that she has drunk the blood of her 25-year-old fiance and codefendant, William Chase.
