LAKE COUNTY (CNN) – A central Florida teen was arrested on charges of attempting to have her parents killed.
Alyssa Michelle Hatcher is accused of stealing nearly $1,500 from her parents’ bank account while trying to carry out her murder-for-hire plot, according to a police affidavit. She used $400 to pay a friend to have her parents killed, the document says, and when the act was not carried out, the 17-year-old paid another person $900 to do it.
The girl’s boyfriend told investigators he had seen her at “a known drug house” where she reportedly told him she wanted to kill her parents.
When she was interviewed by an investigator at her home, Hatcher said that in addition to paying two people to kill her parents, she also used money she had stolen from her parents to buy cocaine, the affidavit says.
Hatcher’s parents were not injured and told investigators they wanted to press charges against their daughter. She has been charged as a juvenile with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder.
