'''''[[Jeff The Killer]]''''' is one of the classic stories in creepypastas. The story is about a 13-year-old child named "Jeffery Woods," who had recently moved into a new neighborhood with his brother Liu and his parents. On his first day of school, he was bullied by a group of three bullies and threatened with being killed with knives. He was then arrested after his brother Liu took the blame for it, resulting in him becoming very depressed and stressed. His parents forced him to go to the party, where he was attacked by the bullies again. Jeff killed one of them, but he was doused with alcohol and set on fire.<ref name="Screen Rant">Cotter, P.
