A 19-year-old, Alan Hruby, has killed all the members of his family because he wanted to inherit the family fortune.
Hruby murdered his 48-year-old mother, Tinker Hruby, 17-year-old Katherine, and 50-year-old father, John Hruby, on 9 October, in their family home in Oklahoma, with a 9mm pistol he found in his father’s truck.
According to the court documents, the teenager needed $3,000 to pay a loan shark, and he thought he could inherit enough money to pay the loan, after killing his parents and sister.
The District Attorney Jason Hicks, of Stephens County, said, “He felt like if he murdered his mother, his father and his sister, he would be the only one, the only heir, to their estate.”
Hruby initially appeared shaken when police told him about his family’s murder, a day after their bodies were found by a housekeeper, but investigators could tell that his tears were superficial.
Hicks said, “The only remorse we’ve seen is because he got caught. Any tears that he shed, they were crocodile tears. It wasn’t remorse because “I’ve lost my mom, my dad and my sister,” — it’s remorse because he knows that his life is basically over. It was completely planned out, this kid is an evil person.”
The University of Oklahoma freshman has been charged with the triple murders after he confessed to the killings.
