Creepy Interview With Teenage Tempe Murder Suspect Prior to Allegedly Murdering Homeless Man, Compliments of ABC 15

Allegedly murdering a homeless guy wasn't the only activity in which 14-year-old Javon Wilson participated on September 28 -- he also was interviewed by ABC 15 for a story about the economy.

It's creepy. The interview was reportedly conducted just hours before police say Wilson, and another homeless man, 23-year-old Ronald Alewine, murdered 48-year-old Casey Blackwood as he slept in an abandoned home in Tempe.

Alewine allegedly stabbed Blackwood with a knife provided by Wilson. The two then tossed his body in a dumpster near Tempe's Mill Avenue District.

In the video, Wilson, who goes by the street name "Twitchy," describes himself to ABC 15's Christina Boomer as a "happy hippy," before singing a love-themed song for the camera.

A few hours later, he allegedly murdered a guy and threw him into a dumpster.

Check out the video of Wilson -- along with some of Mill Avenue's finest panhandlers -- after the jump.
