Michael Bargo will be executed in Florida, just like Trayvon Martin. The 21 year old is Florida’s youngest death row inmate. Circuit Judge David Eddy gave the kid the death penalty.
Bargo was 18 when he was charged with beating and shooting 15-year-old Seath Jackson to death and burning his body in a fire pit.
Jackson’s remains – ashes and bone fragments – were then dumped in 5-gallon paint buckets and hidden, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office records.
The killing was a brutal one. Jackson was lured by his girlfriend to a home in the Marion County community of Summerfield, where Bargo and two other attackers began hitting him with pieces of wood. Bargo shot him several times with a .22-caliber revolver, but Jackson managed to make an escape attempt, and he was tackled and shot again.
The killers placed his body in a bathtub, intending to break his knees so he would better fit into a bag only to discover that he was still alive, so Bargo shot him again.
Jackson’s body was then burned in a backyard fire pit, and the killers used a shovel to scoop up his remains and place them into paint buckets.
