Teen sentenced to life without parole for killing his parents so he could throw a party
Sometimes, I wish I could just go into the woods, build myself a little house, and just live a peaceful, quiet, contemplative life, perhaps with some farming. Or at least stop reading the news, and be willfully ignorant of what goes on in the world.
After reading this article, I’m feeling the urge:
A man who was just 17 when he brutally beat his parents to death before throwing a party with their bodies still inside the house has been sentenced to life without parole.
Tyler Hadley beat his parents, Mary Jo and Blake Hadley, to death with a hammer at their St Lucie, Florida home in 2011, then spent three hours clearing up their blood so he could have a party.
In February, Hadley pleaded no contest in February to two counts of first-degree murder and on Friday Judge Robert R. Makemson handed Hadley two life sentences.
Hadley was unable to receive the death penalty because he was 17 when he committed the murders. The story details how he had a history of drug and alcohol use, and had been in legal trouble for arson. He took three ecstasy pills before killing his parents.
Inmates where Hadley is imprisoned indicate he enjoys some level of notoriety among his fellow prisoners.
What a sick young man. I hope he gets the help he clearly needs.
