Teen kills 43-year-old boyfriend during sex & it only gets weirder
Jessica Burlew is 16 years old. The teen was in her mother's home in Arizona with 43-year-old Jason Ash, who she refers to as her boyfriend. There is nothing boyish about a 43-year-old man dating a 16-year-old, but I digress. Over the weekend, on Saturday, Burlew claims to have accidentally strangled Ash while they were having consensual sex. Again, I'm not sure a 16-year-old can legally have consensual sex with a grown man, I believe the age of consent in Arizona is 18, but again, I digress. The accidental strangulation appears to have been part of "sex games" the couple was playing and Ash didn't use the "safe word." It just gets weirder and weirder from here...

Burlew was using electrical wire to strangle Ash during sex, when he passed out. In an effort to revive him, I suppose, Burlew cut him with a razor. When that didn't work, she started cutting herself with the razor. Then she called her mother, Tracey Woodside, and told her what had happened.
When Woodside got to the home she called 911. Ash was pronounced dead at 5:45 p.m. Woodside told police that her daughter has both schitzophrenia and autism.
Burlew fled the home before police got there and was found at a neighbor's home wearing a burka. She admitted to killing ash by "consensual strangulation." She will be tried as an adult and is charged with second degree murder.
This story is upsetting on quite a few different levels, but I have to say that there is a part of me that wonders how the heck this teenager ended up in such a situation. I feel like she has somehow been failed. She obviously has got some serious mental issues going on.
