Teen Who Killed Parents Charged as Adult

The Florida teen who bludgeoned his parents to death with a roofing hammer then threw a party in their house for his Facebook friends has been charged as an adult in the case. Tyler Hadley, of Port St. Lucie, will face first-degree murder charges in the death of his parents, Mary Jo and Blake Hadley. Because Tyler is 17 and a juvenile, he cannot face the death penalty.
Investigation into the deaths revealed that Tyler Hadley was high on ecstasy pills when he killed his parents. He confessed to his best friend, Mike Mandell, that he had killed them and that Tyler showed him the bodies of his parents during the party that followed the murders.
Parents Found Dead in Bedroom
Neighbors complained about noise from the house party. Police drove by the location but did not see anything unusual and did not investigate further. Later in the night, authorities received an anonymous tip that the couple had been killed.
When officers returned to the house Hadley told them his parents were out of town, but he appeared to be "nervous and panicky," police reports said. They found the couple dead in their bedroom around 4:20 a.m. Sunday.
Port Saint Lucie Police Capt. Don Kryak said Tyler Hadley remains on suicide watch at the county jail. His case will likely be presented to a grand jury in August, Kryak said.
