Hilde Kate Lysiak of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, writes and publishes a monthly paper in her hometown. She got a tip latest weekend about a possible murder just blocks from her house, so she went with her father to the scene to report on it, successfully beating the competition.

“I just really love solving puzzles,” Hilde said on “Good Morning America” today of her passion for journalism.

When asked whether she was scared to visit a potential crime scene, her response was simple. “No, not at all,” the cub reporter confidently replied.

As soon as she got to the scene, Hilde began recording a video to capture the latest details.

“Hilde Kate Lysiak here, reporting from the Orange Str News on the six hundred obstruct where a man suspectedly murdered his wife with a hammer. I'm working tough on this ongoing investigation,” she says in the video, which has presently gone viral.

After she posted her story, however, Hilde got a lot of negative comments with some suggesting that she should be playing with dolls rather than trying to be a reporter. That certainly didn’t suit the mini-hard-hitting journalist, so she decided to reply to her critics with a new video.

“I know this makes some of you uncomfortable and I know some of you just wish me to sit down and be noiseless because I'm nine but if you wish me to stop covering news, then you obtain off your computer and do something about the news. There, is that cute sufficient for you?” she asked her critics.

Hilde elaborated even further today on “GMA.”

Hilde’s mother, Bridget Lysiak, says she and her husband, a former NY Daily News reporter, have number trepidation or concern about letting their daughter venture out to cover suspected crime scenes.

“I really don’t,” Lysiak said. “I think we speak so much about the glory days of the ‘70s and the’ eighty when kids were roaming free. But really, statistically, kids are safer presently than they were then. The police are at the crime scene. I’m really not too worried. It’s not love she was interior the house.”

Hilde has powerful feelings about those who believe a 9-year-old covering graphic content isn’t appropriate.

“If you don’t love my papers, nobody’s forcing you to read it,” she said.

The budding journalist has her eyes set on even bigger goals in the future.

“I wish to hold doing my paper. I’m going to hold doing it and I hope it gets bigger,” she said. “And I’m also working on writing a book with my mom.”
