How can a 14 year old enter a murder contract with a friend, to murder his family for $1,200, and then say it was a joke?!
Adults, parents inclusive, shouldn’t let age of children deceive them. Children these days should be treated as mini-adults, if not real adults…they can ‘do’ and ‘undo’ these days!
The 14-year-old, arrested in Port St. Lucie in Florida, tried to ‘hire’ a friend to carry out the killings and make the crime look like a burglary gone wrong, police said.
The boy’s father found the handwritten note along with a folding knife in his bag, according to a charging document.
The note said:
‘I (name redacted) – will be hitman for hire for (defendant’s name redacted) to murder (names redacted) and (name redacted).
‘I am aware that if I do not go through with it I will not get paid. Money in question we agreed upon was 1200 dollars. I will leave in an hour or two within the murder.’
