Alyssa Hatcher, 17, was arrested Monday and has been charged with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
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. Financial records indicated that Hatcher used the stolen debit card in two separate transactions, one for $503 and the other for $926.40.
The affidavit added that Hatcher’s boyfriend told investigators that he’d seen her “at a known drug house” Monday morning, where she told him that she wanted to kill her parents.
When investigators tracked down Hatcher, she allegedly admitted that she had paid one person $400 to kill her parents and gave another person $900 when the first person she paid did not carry the act out.
Investigators said Hatcher also used $100 to buy cocaine before spending the rest on the murder-for-hire plot, which ultimately failed.
She was reportedly arrested on Monday.
