Teenager Alyssa Hatcher used her parents' credit card to withdraw money on two separate occasions to pay for a hitman to kill them, police have alleged.
Hatcher was arrested Monday on two counts of criminal solicitation for murder.
Detectives said they were contacted by another juvenile who said Hatcher had paid one of her friends "a lot of money" to find someone to kill her parents, according to the arrest affidavit. Detectives do not believe her parents are in danger now.
Hatcher's boyfriend told investigators he'd seen Hatcher early Monday morning at a "known drug house" where she told him she wanted to murder her mom and stepdad, the affidavit says.
Since the act wasn't carried out by the first person, Hatcher reportedly gave $900 to a "black male" to kill her parents. The first transaction, according to the affidavit, was split into two parts: $100 was for cocaine while the remaining $400 was given to a friend to find someone willing to kill her parents.
Neither plots were successful.
She later found it and a piece of paper with her bank account information written on it in her daughter's room, according to the report.
Hatcher was placed in custody and transported to the Lake County Jail, where she was processed and later turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
In a recorded interview, Hatcher shared that she had stolen her parents' debit card and admitted to making the two transaction. "When it comes to something like that I can not imagine the shock you would be in as a parent knowing that this is my daughter ... what my daughter meant to do".
In her report, the deputy said the suspect sent a second text to the girl saying, "I found someone to do it and it's going to happen tonight".
"The parents did press charges", Sgt. Jones said.
Plotting to have your parents killed is just cold.
