Florida teen tries to hire someone to kill her parents, deputies say

Alyssa Hatcher 17 allegedly stole her parents’ debit card and used it to pay two people to kill them

The Umatilla teen is accused of stealing her parents' debit card and making two transactions: One for $503 and the other for $926.40, according to an arrest affidavit from the Lake County Sheriff's Office. Hatcher's boyfriend also told police that he saw her on Monday when she revealed her plan to him.

The girl was arrested Monday night and charged with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder.

She said that she used $100 to buy cocaine and gave $400 to her friend to give to someone to kill her parents, authorities stated in the affidavit. The witness was to then find someone to kill her parents.

On Tuesday, Hatcher was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Ocala, Florida, Lake County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Fred Jones said. "I couldn't even imagine something like that". She later found it and a piece of paper with her bank account information written on it in her daughter's room, according to the report.

Police said Hatcher's motive as to why she wanted her parents dead is still unclear."The parents are good people, outstanding citizens".

"There were people who were saying on social media how much she hates her parents", Jones said.

Her parents intend to prosecute.

In a statement, Clermont police said: "This is an important example of how "see something, say something" plays a major role in preventing crime and protecting people in our community".

In an arrest affidavit, a sheriff's detective reported that the teen's friend told a school resource officer that Hatcher had given a mutual acquaintance "a lot of money" to find someone to kill her parents.
