Panama City, Florida -- Police in Panama City believed 16-year-old Jacob Hendershot was beaten to death because Stephanie Pistey, 18, accused him of raping her.
Investigators say back in July, a group of Pistey's friends lured Hendershot to a house, killed him, then dumped his body in a storm drain. Five people, including Pistey, are charged with either murder or accessory after the fact.
But it's the lifestyles of some of the suspects that has taken this case in an entirely new direction.
In a jailhouse interview, Pistey tells TV station WJHG, "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."
Police had previously stated the murder suspects may have been involved in a vampire cult. Pistey's comments from jail appear to give credence to that claim.
Pistey admits she was at the home where Hendershot was murdered, but says she was watching co-defendant Tammy Morris' two children. Morris was also charged with accessory to murder.
"I was the babysitter," Pistey says.
She denies drinking Hendershot's blood after the murder, but claims she has drunken her fiance's blood before.
Although she has not yet been convicted, Pistey expects to be behind bars for a long time.
"Now that I'm here, I'm pretty much figuring out that I'm just going to stay here the rest of my life."
