New Posts Confirm Teens on Hunt to Kill

New posts online to social media by one of the three teens in Oklahoma suspected of senselessly murdering  Australian exchange student Chris Lane bring some background to who these youngsters are. CNN's Randi Kaye reports.

Fifteen-year-old James Edwards and 16-year-old Chancey Luna have been charged as adults with felony first degree murder. Michael Jones, 17, is being charged as an accessory.

Just three days before the shooting Edwards, the youngest of the three, tweeted that he and his friends were ready to take some lives.

Back in April, he posted the following:

"Ninety percent of white people are nasty."

In a Vine video Edwards posted in May, the young man shows off an assault rifle.

However, it was Jones, the oldest suspect, who told police their twisted motive for murder was simply boredom.
