Tyler Hadley said to have been on Ecstacy prior to his parents' murder. Close friend Michael Mandel speaks out. (COURT VIDEO included as well)

This is a follow-up to the brutal murder of Mary Jo Hadley, 47, and 54-year-old Blake Hadley by their own 17-year-old son. Last Saturday, Port St. Lucie resident, Tyler Hadley, reportedly became upset that his parents would not let him have a party. As a result, he allegedly beat them to death with a hammer, and proceded to have his party anyways, while they lay dead in his Florida home.

This was an interview by WPTV News Channel 5, with Hadley's best friend Michael Mandell. Here we can see that Hadley had confessed the murder to Mandell, prior to his arrest, and when he saw blood in the house, the confession was confirmed.
This is Mandell and Hadley during the party, AFTER the murder.
"I opened the door. I saw bloody sheets piled everywhere. I saw broken pictures with blood on them and I looked down and I saw his dad's leg there," said Mandell in an interview with the Sun Sentinal.

Mandell claims to be "in shock" about the whole situation, and says he feels like he doesn't even know Hadley, who he has been best friends with "forever."

The fact that Tyler murdered his parents is disturbing in itself. But what is the most disturbing to me is his ability to maintain his composure. After the murder, Mandell said that "Tyler was having a fun time himself, he was acting like nothing had happened."

Meanwhile, his deceased parents were rotting away in their locked bedroom.

Mandell said that Hadley's reasoning behind the murder was that, "the devil possessed him." He said the Hadleys were having financial problems and, according to Mandell, that along with rap music and fights with his parents influenced his actions, according to the Sun Sentinal.

Hadley was denied of bail and is currently charged with second degree murder charges. The state is trying to bump those charges up to first degree murder charges. Supposedly, he is not up for the death penalty.

Personally, I hope he rots in jail.
