Teenager Steals Her Parents' Debit Card And Pays To Have Them Killed

Teenager Steals Her Parents' Debit Card And Pays To Have Them Killed

A 17-year-old girl reportedly stole money from her parents and used it to pay two people to kill them, according to local police reports.

The teen, from Florida, took her parents' debit card and has subsequently been charged with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder, as her parents are thankfully still alive.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office said that Alyssa Michelle Hatcher was arrested on Monday (9 September). A young witness reported an incident to a school resource officer at Hatcher's high school. They disclosed that the accused had given one of their friends 'a lot of money' so that they would find someone to kill her mum and dad.

She was arrested by the Umatilla Police Department after the tip off.

An investigation quickly found that Hatcher had stolen the debit card. They then realised that she had taken out two separate amounts from their account. The first was for $503 (£407) and then the next was for $926.40 (£750).

It was then found that he funds were given to two individuals, according to the arrest affadivit (a written statement confirmed by oath or affirmation, for use as evidence in court).

Detective D. Causey then got in touch with Hatcher's boyfriend. He told authorities that Hatcher was last seen on Monday morning. She was at a known drug house and it was there that she told him she wanted her parents to be killed.

In an interview that was recorded after, Hatcher apparently admitted she had stolen her parents' debit card and confirmed she did make the two transactions.

She also revealed that $100 (£80) of the first transaction was used to buy cocaine and another $400 (£320) was given to her friend in return for them finding someone to kill her parents.

The act wasn't carried out by the first person, so Hatcher then reportedly gave $900 (£730) to an unnamed 'black male' to kill her parents.

The sheriff's office Sergeant Fred Jones said in a statement: "As the investigation progressed it was learned that the suspect Alyssa Hatcher solicited two different individuals to kill her parents.

"According to investigators the juvenile suspect stole her parents debit card and made two separate transactions withdrawing funds to pay the individuals to carry out the murder.

"The juvenile suspect was placed in custody and transported to the Lake County Jail where she was processed and turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice."

According to the report, Hatcher's parents are pressing criminal charges against their daughter.
