Boy kills classmate who refused to give him biscuit


A 16-year-old student, Daniel Stroud, has been accused of stabbing his schoolmate through the heart in a row about biscuits in the corridor of Cults Academy, Aberdeen.

Daniel, who was a part-time worker with McDonald’s, said he was constantly teased about being fat and took weapons to school to try and impress the other kids.

In an interview with policemen, which was played to the jury, he said: “I never fitted in. I was just trying to be cool.”

During the interview, filmed hours after his victim, Bailey Gwynne, was killed, Stroud burst into tears as he spoke about family problems.

He told how he contacted his parents and told them he loved them as he waited for policemen to come and take him from the school.

Sixteen-year-old Bailey and Stroud clashed during their lunch break at the top state school in October 2015.

Friends said Bailey, who dreamed of becoming a marine, refused to give Stroud a biscuit. And the pair squared up when someone called Bailey’s mum Kate “fat.”

SUN Online reports that moments later, Stroud stabbed Bailey with an eight-inch pen knife and he collapsed moments later in front of horrified teachers and kids.

Experts said Bailey was doomed because his injuries were so severe. Stroud smirked as he sat in the dock when he was cleared of murder. He was later given a nine-year jail sentence for killing Bailey and carrying weapons in school.
