Florida Teen Murders His Mom, A Beloved Local Teacher, On Christmas Eve

Categories: Crime

Police say the two had been arguing since September but that a particularly heated argument caused a Florida teen to murder his mother Christmas Eve. Brandon and Sharon Aydelott had apparently spent several hours in a war of words before the stabbing occurred.

Brandon Aydelott loved baseball. He was a varsity player at Gulf Breeze High School who also played in the Golden Gloves competition circuit, which regularly saw scouts from Division 1 schools. The 17-year-old senior could throw a 99 mph fastball -- although he averaged about 80 -- and also played shortstop. Police say a baseball bat played a part in the murder.

Sharon was a Pensacola native and a single mom. She attended high school and college in Alabama and moved back to become a beloved comprehensive science teacher at Holley-Navarre Middle School. Her body was found around 6 p.m. Tuesday by a friend who stopped by the house on 1119 Crane Cove Blvd. in Gulf Breeze. The visitor first noticed a front door that was open and smeared with blood before coming across the deceased.

Brandon was found at a nearby home, where he had been staying on and off for several months because of his tumultuous home life. The 6'3", 200-pound athlete peacefully surrendered and confessed to police how he beat his mom with a bat, cut her throat, and ultimately stabbed her in the eye. It is unclear what their final argument was about.

Brandon has been charged with first-degree murder by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office and is being held without bond.

Sharon's former students are in shock about her tragic death. They remember an impeccable sense of humor and a willingness to offer guidance to any student who needed it.

"This is just so sad. She was my favourite teacher and helped me so much. I can't believe the son she loved so much and always talked about could do this," Selina Franklin commented on an article from the Navarre Press. "She will be greatly missed."

Crazy... he threw 99mph at 17 years old. Impressive. When he gets out of prison in 10 years or so probably can go to D.R and get a passport that says he's 19 and still play in the majors.

It's stupid that people blame the mom, dad, video games, etc... so many ppl who are abused as children who grow up to be success stories, ppl with horrible crack head mothers or in foster care system. Kids who play video games with killing but wouldn't hurt a fly. My grandmother used to say that if you were born to be bad nothing you are taught will change that and same goes if you were born to be good. The kid was evil no matter what. Stop trying to blame everything else people!

Where's the racial undertones which are so prevalent on the comment section of Black stories? Are we gonna act like this sort of evil isn't indigenous to the white race? I hate all non-blacks, I like to punch them in the mouth.......it makes their heads feel hollow. It's actually a good feeling, kill all gentiles......

...probably not many, Guillermo. There's very little evidence to support a direct connection between virtual violence and real life violence.

Really sad. But I would like to know how many hours a day that kid spend on the Play Station or similar killing people.

Would be very helpful if someone could publish what it was that threw this teen into a rage.

Thin line, VERY thin line, between LOVE and HATE, sad story I'm sure once details of their relationship are revealed. Where is his father, any scoop on that yet?

The only way i could see this being the moms fault is if she told him to kill her.

@natiboy256 Appreciate your racist candidness 


[presuming  you are not  a white racist just seeking to make blacks look more racist and obnoxious than most really are] . 


If you are really black,  sorry for you that there is not more white perp black victim violent crime for you to froth about


as you ignore [if not applaud]  the much more common black perp white victim violent crime.

@jwp_jwp@natiboy256Blacks commit survival crimes That's what happens when you're expected to adopt the ways of your enemies to be considered employable, but you're too loyal to your people to mimic a group a people that you recognize as enemies and treat as enemy combatants. 


Blacks practice reactive racism, whites practice proactive racism. We wouldn't hate any race if the initial hatred toward us wasn't there in the first place. Only a partial neanderthal would believe we're supposed to allow other races to be racist toward us without returning the racism back to the proactive racists.


With all of the atrocities perpetrated onto people of color throughout the ages, a little revenge brings a smile onto my face. Although I hate to see violence brought upon innocent people of any race, I've declared most whites exempt from all forms of decency which marks them as being incapable of innocence. Therefore, when I applaud the black street soldiers for putting in work against the beasts, I know that most of the beasts deserved what they got.

@jwp_jwp@natiboy256My thinking pattern is opposite of a white supremacist's thinking pattern. My supposed racism is a direct derivative of my vengeful personality, white supremacists are just stupid sociopathic b**ches with entitlement issues. Now, I'm not a racist, I have no issues whatsoever with any normal person of any race. I hate racists and I don't mind killing every last one of them, or at least quarantining them from the rest of the population.

@natiboy256@jwp_jwp Appreciate your racist candidness.   Under the skin, you and the most vile of White racist bigots are brothers.   Same twisted double standard/collective guilt thinking.    Complete oblviousness to the concept of color blind "right and wrong"  in regard to  personal morality.  As all criminals do,  you really think you have a "right to do wrong."
