“Demon” Teen Sentenced to Life In Prison For Dragging 73-Year-Old Woman During Carjacking

The “demon” Louisiana teen who brutally carjacked and dragged a 73-year-old woman was handed down his sentencing on Friday, life in prison, tearing her arm and clothes off when she became stuck in the seatbelt and later died, learned his fate Friday.

John Honore, 18, was sentenced to life in prison for his involvement in the carjacking and death of Linda Frickey in 2022. Authorities say that Honore carjacked the grandmother, he tore her arm and clothes off after she became stuck in the seatbelt.

“There is no remorse, he got what he deserved. He did it,” Frickey’s sister Jinnylynn Griffin told reporters following the court victory. “We don’t care what happened before March 21, 2022, that’s the day we worry about.”

“He’s a little jerk, he’s a little punk, and he deserves to go where he is going. He is a demon, and God saw that demon that day, and that’s how Linda’s arm got severed. We put away the demons now. And the future demons, they better look out because the DA’s office is not playing anymore.”

In March 2022,  Frickey  was loading up her car outside a business in New Orleans’ Mid-City neighborhood when she was approached and carjacked by four teens, the new York Post reported.

Authorities say Honore “jumped in and kicked her out,” and that is when “she got caught in the wheel well.”

Frickey was dragged almost a block down the road before her arm was severed by a utility pole and clothes ripped off her body, NOLA.compreviously reported. She suffered a torn aorta, fractured collarbone, ribs and vertebrae during the incident.

She died lying in the middle of the road, naked.

A jury found Honore guilty following a seven-hour-long trial on Nov. 27, 2023.

In a handwritten letter to the victim’s family, Honore called the carjacking the “biggest mistake of my life.”

“I am John and I am so sorry and I apologize for you having to go through what you are going through,” Honore said. “No persons family should have to, go through that type of hurt. I made the biggest mistake of my life that day. I think about what you, and the family may be goin through everyday.

“I have wanted to write you all a letter for a long time but I didn’t know what to say, and I still don’t know what to say. I just want you to know sincerely that I am sorry, and I know words may change how you feel but I want you to know that I’m aware of how serious this is and I am trying as I think I am doing the right thing.”

Honore could have a chance at parole in 25 years since he was only 17 years old at the time of the crime. He was not eligible for the death penalty since the US Supreme Court banned the execution of minors in 2005, the outlet reported.

Honore’s sentencing was the last of four involved in Frickey’s death after the three girls who were with him during the carjacking accepted a plea deal.
