Tyler Hadley Killed Parents With a Hammer So He Could Throw a Facebook Party, Police Say

As long as parents have been putting a stop to house parties, teenagers have been finding ways to throw them anyway. But if police are right about Tyler Hadley, never before has a thwarted kegger led to this kind of horrific solution.

Port St. Lucie cops this morning say the 17-year-old brutally murdered his mom and dad with a hammer a few hours before hosting a wild party advertised on Facebook. While 50 or so friends got drunk downstairs, Hadley's parents' bloody corpses lie hidden under a comforter in the master bedroom.

Police say Tyler might have murdered Mary Jo and Blake Hadley in a rage when they refused to let him host a party Saturday. Around 1:30 that afternoon, he posted a Facebook note inviting friends over to drink.

But his parents "wouldn't let him throw a party," a friend tells WOKV, a local news station.

Sometime after the invite went out, Hadley killed Mary Jo, who was 47, and then 54-year-old Blake with hammer blows to the head, detectives say. Hadley's friends showed up a few hours later for the party.

Neighbors called police around 2:30 a.m. because of the noise, but it wasn't until a tip came in the next day about the murders that detectives returned to search the house.

They found Tyler "nervous and panicky" and the house strewn with plastic beer cups and garbage, they said. And when they opened a locked master bedroom, they found the elder Hadleys' bodies under a pile of sheets, "books, files, and towels," police say, with a bloody hammer between them.

They arrested Hadley, who had recently dropped out of high school and faced a civil lawsuit after injuring a child while driving, according to the Daily Mail. He'll likely be charged as an adult.

Hot on the heels of the Casey Anthony trial, the case is not helping Florida's reputation as America's prime exporter of soul-crushing crime. Newspapers from London to Mumbai have picked up the Hadley story this morning, and Facebook pages decrying the homicide are amassing followers.

On one Facebook group, a young European man named Deividas Cirvinskij probably sums up the world's feelings with a question posed to a neighbor of Hadley's: "Florida is Scary town?" Cirvinskij asks.

Yes, Deividas. Florida is Scary town.

Maybe he can share a cell with the loser in Pembroke Pines who killed his stepmom on Sunday.  You just can't teach kids anything today, huh?  I'm glad my kids are dogs.  The worst they ever do is puke on the carpet....and they're even sorry afterwards.

THE POWER OF SUGGESTION AT IT'S BEST:"They found Tyler "nervous and panicky" and the house strewn with plastic beer cups and garbage, they said. And when they opened a locked master bedroom, they found the elder Hadleys' bodies under a pile of sheets, "books, files, and towels," police say, with a bloody hammer between them."a)these things probably didn't happen in this order

b)any underage kid throwing a house kegger party would be "nervous and panicky" to cops knocking on his door. pretty normal reaction if you ask me.

c)why would he open the door and invite the cops in

I'm not defending this kid. Attempting to undo a bias article, so that we can read the news and come up with our own opinions independently...

...And yes I understand the facts don't sell.

Why do they have to title it as being specifically a "Facebook party"??? Wrong use of words writer!!! Just because he announced it on Fb doesn't mean it was a fb party. Whatever, anyways...the kid deserves to rot in jail. You think the state will be able to prove "reasonable doubt" on this one, with blatant evidence???

can i be the first one to start with the forced-sodomy jokes? "yeah, he is gonna have plenty of facebook parties in prison, sorry, I meant face@#@## parties

Okay sharia law...relax a little.. I think prison is hellish enough. Considering he is 17, spending 50 years or whatever he has left of his natural life is enough. Some might even argue that spending more than 30 years in jail is cruel and unusual punishment.. but since this is a double homicide... screw it..let him rot

He is a high school drop-out. Did you expect a master criminal here? I'm wondering just how badly he incriminated himself after he was read his rights and before he asked for a lawyer. Or is it different when you have a minor involved?

there is far more evidence on this case. fresher evidence... trust me... he is going down
