A FOURTEEN-year-old died on Tuesday four days after she was left with horrific injuries from being beaten, strangled, and stabbed 25 times at a strip mall.
Daisy “Jupiter” Paulsen was reportedly skateboarding from her father’s house to her mother’s at around 7am on Friday morning when she was attacked.

Arthur Prince Kollie, 23, was arrested later that day after a garbage truck driver saw a man fitting his description at the scene.
Surveillance footage also later showed him stealing clothes from a Walmart to replace his bloodied white t-shirt.
Kollie has denied involvement, telling cops in Fargo, North Dakota, that he has a multiple personality disorder and had not slept since taking meth on the afternoon before the stabbing.
Yet he admitted to walking in the area at the time and police officers found fresh cuts to his hands.

Paulsen was rushed to hospital but was declared dead on Tuesday afternoon after doctors told her family that the damage caused to her brain when she was strangled was too severe.
According to court documents, Kollie reportedly stabbed Paulsen over the course of 20 minutes in an attack that was partially picked up on surveillance footage from a local store.
The garbage worker was driving by and saw a man in a white t-shirt and black pants leaning over Paulsen with one hand on her nose and another on her throat.
The suspect ran from the area but was tracked down to a Walmart a half a mile from the stabbing.
Kollie’s bloodied shoes and clothes were found in the changing room of the store.
Surveillance footage also showed him grabbing new clothes and putting them on in the changing room without paying.
Kollie, who has no permanent address, made his first court appearance on Monday and was charged with attempted murder, robbery, and aggravated assault.
However, Cass County prosecutors have said that his charges could now be upgraded to murder.

After being arrested, Kollie told cops that he could “not recall” when being questioned about the incident.
Yet when told his charges, he reportedly asked: “attempted murder, as is she alive? Or what? What does attempted murder mean?”
He is being held on a $1million cash-only bond.
