South Florida teen kills parents with a hammer then has a party

Tyler Hadley, 17 of Port St. Lucie, FL, was arrested on Sunday for allegedly beating his parents, 54-year-old Blake Hadley and 47-year-old Mary-Jo Hadley, to death with a hammer. What makes this story even more sickening, was that he threw a party with at least 60 people in attendance following the brutal murder. Yes, the corpses were still in the house, but covered with various household items.

At around 1:15pm the Saturday before his arrest, Hadley reportedly sent out a Facebook invite about a party at his house that night.

According to the Local 10 news of Broward County, Hadley killed his parents because they wouldn't let him throw a party.

After the police had already shown up once for a noise complaint around 1:30 a.m., they returned to the Port St. Lucie home after receiving a tip that a murder had taken place.

According to The Associated Press, police found the bodies covered with towels, files, books and other household items, and the hammer between them.

The location of the hammer and the trauma to the heads and torsos of both victims led police to believe that the hammer was used to murder them.

Hadley is currently awaiting trial and charged with two counts of murder. "He is being held without bond at a juvenile detention center in Fort Pierce and it's not immediately known whether he has an attorney," according to Fox News.
