Florida Teen Allegedly Stole From Parents To Fund Murder Plot Against Them | Crime Time

Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Hatcher plotted to have her parents killed and used their debit card to finance the crime, deputies said.

The 17-year-old Florida teen was arrested and charged with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder on Monday (local time), Lake County Sheriff's Office said, Fox News reported.

Alyssa Hatcher, 17, was arrested Tuesday on two counts of criminal solicitation for murder after investigators say the teen stole her parents debit card and made two different transactions, withdrawing cash to pay two different people to kill them.

Bank statements from the card allegedly used by Hatcher to coordinate the killings showed a withdrawal of A$730 and another of A$1,300.

The affidavit added that Hatcher's boyfriend told investigators that he'd seen her "at a known drug house" Monday morning, where she told him that she wanted to kill her parents.

Per the affidavit, Alyssa then said she paid $900 to "a black man" to kill her parents when the first person didn't act.

Neither plots were successful.

Hatcher was then interviewed by police at her home.

"This is a sad case when you think about the family dynamics and everything", Sergeant Fred Jones with the Lake County Sheriff's Office said.

An incident report prepared by the Tavares High school resource deputy said the student who tipped her off to the plot told her the girl who accepted the $400 received a text from the suspect that "she was not mad that she took the money but did not carry out the request, she just wants it taken care of".

First, word of Hatcher's alleged plan started to spread around Umatilla High School.

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.

The affidavit says a witness contacted detectives to report Hatcher had given a mutual friend "a lot of money" to find someone to kill her mother and father.

"The parents did press charges", Sgt. Jones said.
