FLORIDA — Last weekend, 17-year-old Tyler Hadley beat his parents to death with a large hammer and hid their corpses in a bedroom. Then he threw a huge party for dozens of his friends.
Police say Hadley sent party invitations to his Facebook friends just before he beat his parents in their heads and torsos with a 22-inch framing hammer. The police have no motive, but a partygoer told a local news station that Hadley killed his parents simply because they wouldn’t let him have the party.
The victims, Blake and Mary Jo Hadley, were killed outside of the master bedroom, and then dragged inside the room and covered with numerous household items ranging from books to towels.
As many as 60 people showed up to Hadley’s party that night — an impressive turnout for a psycho. I heard it was quite a “bash.” Soon, a rumor was circulating at the party that he had killed his parents.
Dumbass teen #1: “Hey, did you hear Tyler killed his parents and’s havin’ a party?”
Dumbass teen #2: “No, I didn’t, but that’s SWEET! We should totally go.”
Despite the rumor, nobody told the cops that Hadley may have killed his parents until after the party. The police arrived at his house shortly after 4 AM to investigate. Hadley answered the door looking nervous. He told officers that his parents were out of town, but they doubted him and entered the home.
There were signs of a recent party: Empty cups and alcohol containers, dirty footprints everywhere, and two dead bodies locked in a bedroom. The corpses of Mr. and Mrs. Hadley were quickly discovered in the bedroom with the suspected murder weapon laying on the ground between them.
Hadley was arrested, but he wouldn’t speak to detectives at the police station. He’s currently being held in a juvenile detention center and will be charged as an adult for two counts of first degree murder.
When looking at Tyler Hadley’s mugshot, it’s hard to imagine him brutally bludgeoning his family with a hammer. For a moment, I almost contemplated his innocence, but then I looked closer into his eyes.
One of his eyes looks significantly more evil than the other. Plus, there is definitely a tiny bright green dot glowing in his iris. Oops, never mind — that was just a dead pixel on my monitor… unless you see it.
