A teenage girl in Florida was arrested this week on charges of attempting to have her parents killed, according to a police affidavit.
Alyssa Michelle Hatcher is accused of stealing nearly $1,500 from her parents’ bank account to pay for the murder-for-hire plot. According to the affidavit, Hatcher used $400 to pay a friend to have her parents killed, and when the friend failed to carry out the attack, the 17-year-old paid another person $900 to do it.
According to CNN, the girl’s boyfriend reported to investigators that he had seen her at “a known drug house” where she told him she wanted to kill her parents, according to the affidavit.
When an investigator at her home interviewed her, Hatcher said that in addition to paying two people to kill her parents, she also used the money she had stolen from her parents to buy cocaine, the affidavit said.
Hatcher’s parents were not injured, but when notified by investigators they agreed to press charges against their daughter.
Hatcher has since been charged as a juvenile with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder.
