Tyler Hadley: The Facebook Party Murders In Photos

by | 20th, July 2011

TYLER Hadley, 17, of Port St Lucie, Florida, is the teenager accused of killing his parents and then having a party at the family house. He’s been charged with two counts of murder. He remains in jail on a suicide watch.

While he partied, mum and dad’s bodies were still inside the master bedroom.

A hammer was found lying between their bodies. The corpses had been hidden under linen, books, picture frames, towels and more. The door to the bedroom had been locked.

Hadley arranged the do via Facebook. The party started at around 9pm and went on until around 3am. Around 50 people were there. Yes, indeed – at a teenage party no-one found bodies…in the bedroom?!

Did Tyler do it? Dunno. But a source tells media that his parents “wouldn’t let him throw a party”. To a 17-year-old that might be reason enough.

But Hadley has other issues. He dropped out of his high school. In June 2010, he hit and a child while driving a car registered to his father.

And… Well, that’s it. Finding a behaviour pattern leading up the alleged brutal murder of mum and dad is not easy. Did he take  three ecstasy tablets? Did he cite rap music and financial problems as motive? Is he possessed by the devil?

Hadley allegedly told best friend Michael Mandell that he did it. Says Mandell:

“He asked me to stay there until after everyone left to see them and I didn’t want to. I went in there and checked for myself. 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.”


“He took three ecstasy pills before he did this. He said he couldn’t do it sober.”

Expect lots of news in the coming weeks about how Tyler never did get that Care Bear when he was six.

Maybe he did it because he just could?
