Yahoo – WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy is accused of bludgeoning his parents with a hammer, then hosting dozens of friends for a party while their bodies lay in the bedroom, police said Monday.
Tyler Hadley of Port St. Lucie is charged with twin counts of first-degree murder in the deaths, which authorities say happened Saturday. He is being held without bond at a juvenile detention center in Fort Pierce and it’s not immediately known whether he has an attorney. The parents — Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley — were believed to have been struck with the hammer in their heads and torsos sometime after their son posted on Facebook around 1:15 p.m. Saturday alerting friends to an evening party at his house, about 50 miles north of West Palm Beach. Investigators believe the parents were attacked outside their master bedroom and the bodies were moved into the bedroom and the door locked.
As many as 60 people attended the party that night, according to Port St. Lucie Police spokesman Tom Nichols. They were loud enough to prompt a noise complaint and a visit by police officers. When they arrived at 1:30 a.m. Sunday to warn about the noise, the party was already breaking up, Nichols said.
Then, police said, they received a tip that murder may have taken place. They returned to the home at 4:20 a.m., finding the bodies covered with towels, files, books and other household items, and the hammer between them.
The mother, 47, was an elementary school teacher. The father, 54, worked for Florida Power and Light. Autopsies were underway, but police said they believed they died of blunt-force trauma. Hadley had attended St. Lucie West Centennial High School, according to police, but had not graduated. They said they did not know what the motive was.
They did not know what the motive was?! I got your motive right here. “Mom…Dad…Tell me I can’t have a house party one more time.” “You cannot have a house party, I don’t care if you already posted it on Facebook.” “Fine, have it your way. I’m going to the garage. I’ll be right back.” Boom. Motive. I’m no murder investigator, but you’re welcome police…crime solved. I’m no lawyer either, but this kid won’t spend a second in jail. This has text book insanity written all over it…mental hospital, prepare yourselves for Tyler Hadley. I could convince any 12 people on the planet that this kid is insane in about 28 seconds. “Hello Jury, Meet Tyler Hadley, his folks said he couldn’t have a party so he killed them both with a hammer, dragged them in a room, covered them up with towels, files, books and other household items… locked the door, and had 60 of his closest Facebook friends over for a party. Then he told some of them because that is obviously how the police got a tip that ‘murder may have taken place’.” Done and Done. 28 seconds. Insanity confirmed. (Side note: Casey Anthony’s 12 person jury were not included in my arrogant ‘any 12 people on the planet’ statement. No chance I could convince them of anything.)
thanks to b.caster for lobbin’ this nut job up.
