(NaturalNews) Now-18-year-old Alyssa Bustamante of St. Martins, Mo., recently apologized before a court for viciously murdering then-nine-year-old Elizabeth Olten, her neighbor, back in 2009 simply for the thrill of it. According to reports, Bustamante, who regularly attended a Mormon church with her legal guardians, had received an upped dosage for the depression drug Prozac just two weeks before she decided to strangle, stab, and slit the throat of young Elizabeth in the woods near her house.

It is the type of case that makes you cringe in disgust and horror over what depraved humanity is capable of, and yet at the same time is one that points to the extreme and dangerous nature of prescription drugs in potentially triggering such violent behavior. Though she pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and armed criminal action, which will likely earn her life in prison, Alyssa is said by at least one defense psychiatrist to have been significantly influenced by the medication to commit the atrocity.

In a similar case, a 15-year-old boy in Canada decided to murder one of his best friends with a kitchen knife last year after beginning a Prozac regimen prescribed him as treatment for an illicit drug addition. The boy reportedly had no violent tendencies prior to taking the Prozac, including even during the time he was supposedly experimenting with illegal drugs like cocaine -- but once he started Prozac, his whole personality changed, which is what led the Canadian judge that presided over the case to declare that antidepressant drugs like Prozac can cause children to commit suicide or murder their loved ones (http://www.naturalnews.com/034433_SSRI_drugs_children_murder.html).

And back in 2009, a young boy from the U.K. beat his father to death after taking both citalopram, another depression drug, and Prozac. In that case, it was revealed that the boy had been illegally prescribed citalopram while he was under the age of 18, as well as high doses of Prozac, both of which reportedly made him feel like he was in a "dream-like state" where there would be no consequences for his violent actions (http://www.naturalnews.com/News_000720_Prozac_SSRIs_violence.html).

The fact that Prozac and various other antidepressants were linked to each of these murders does not detract, of course, from the fact that each of the individuals who committed these heinous crimes is still responsible for committing them. But they do clearly illustrate that the drug industry is responsible for helping to at least partially induce these crimes with its drug offerings, and yet it is not being held even a little bit responsible for such crimes when they occur.
