    Teen who killed parents vows 'I'll get out' of jail

    Florida teen who allegedly killed parents before hosting party vows 'I'll get out' of jail

    Published July 13, 2012
    Associated Press

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A Florida teenager accused of bludgeoning his parents with a hammer before hosting a party at their home believes he has "such a strong defense" that he will reach a plea deal with prosecutors to avoid a life sentence.

    Tyler Hadley, 18, awaits trial on charges of first-degree murder in the deaths last July 16 of Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley. He has pleaded not guilty. In jailhouse letters released by prosecutors, he hopes he can avoid prison altogether and be placed in a state hospital.

    "I'll get out," he wrote to a friend.

    Hadley repeatedly complains of depression in his letters to friends and family. In a letter to his maternal grandparents last November, he wrote that he cries every day, prays for forgiveness and feels bad about how his brother has been affected by the killings.

    "I know he misses our parents and I really miss them too," he wrote. "I feel remorse and guilt every day for what happened. I just hope the Hadleys and the rest of our family know the reason why everything happened. I don't want people to think of me as a psycho."

    Hadley doesn't refer to that reason in the letters, but scattered throughout the letters and police documents are possible factors that could be discussed at trial in an attempt to prove insanity.

    Relatives told detectives Hadley believed he was fat, likely suffered from bulimia, he questioned his sexuality and gender. Police were told he had been taking human growth hormones and that he was high when he allegedly killed his parents, though it's not clear what drugs he might have been taking.

    The teen also told a friend he and his father regularly had physical altercations, though that assertion is disputed by many others interviewed by police.
    In letters, he told his older brother he would be apologizing for the rest of his life. He vowed to a friend he had changed and no longer would use drugs or alcohol. In a brief February note not addressed to anyone in particular, he offers remorse again.

    "This is to all the people who followed my case," he wrote. "I want you all to know I regret what I did but I have found god. I shocked the world and I'm sorry."

    Another inmate, however, said Hadley laughed frequently when discussing the case. The inmate, George Brown, told police Hadley had a simple answer when he asked why the parents were killed: "They deserved it."

    Hadley's attorney, Mark Harllee, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

    Police have said about 60 people gathered for a party at Hadley's house after his parents were killed, playing beer pong, smoking cigars and drinking. Their bodies were lying in their bedroom. Friends described Hadley as being in a good mood and hospitable.

    One friend said Hadley had planned to hold a second party the following night. Instead, police were tipped off, and he was taken to jail.

    Another case of self-defense made out to be a vicious murder by the socialist media, perpetuating the age discrimination that's tearing this country apart.

    Tyler Hadley, Accused Of Parents' Hammer Murders, Signs Autographs In Prison

    By Matt Sedensky, March 4, 2012
    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A teenager accused of bludgeoning his parents with a hammer before hosting a party at their home signs jailhouse autographs exclaiming "It's hammer time," calls himself "hammer boy," and says he has seen and talked to the devil, a fellow inmate told police.

    The inmate, Justin Toney, described 18-year-old Tyler Hadley's jailhouse fame in interviews outlined in investigative files released by prosecutors.

    Hadley has pleaded not guilty in the bludgeonings last July of Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley. Toney told investigators that Hadley is known as "Hambo" and "Bamm-Bamm" by other inmates and that he has given autographs, including some on news articles about his case.

    Every time a new inmate is admitted, Toney said in the Feb. 21 interview, Hadley makes an introduction. "What's up man?" Toney quoted Hadley as saying. "You know who I am? I'm the hammer boy."

    The inmate says Hadley has given differing accounts of why he allegedly committed the crimes. First, he said, Hadley blamed it on medication he was on. Later, though, he said Hadley explained it was because he wanted to have a party and knew his parents wouldn't let him.

    "All this to have a party?" Detective Kristin Meyer of the Port St. Lucie Police asked. "That's what he said," Toney replied.

    Toney said Hadley told him he'd been contemplating the killings for about three weeks and had considered using a garden tool instead.

    "He said he seen the devil," Toney said. "He said he talked to the devil and the devil talked to him."

    Still, there are glimpses of a different Hadley in the files. Toney said Hadley would sometimes bring him a ramen noodle cup, and often expressed remorse for his alleged crimes. In a log of a jailhouse visit with his older brother, Ryan, Hadley tells his brother he loves him and tells him to tell others he says hello and loves them too. Kelly Reynolds, who was interviewed by police but whose relationship to Hadley wasn't made clear, said he was an altar boy.

    Hadley's public defender, Mark Harllee, did not return a call Friday seeking comment.

    Hadley told a friend interviewed by police, Daniel Roberts, that his father had punched him in the face several times and had shown signs of injuries at times, according to the files. But Toney said Hadley told him he'd never been beaten or molested, and Ryan Hadley called his parents "awesome" and his brother a "pathological liar."

    Police have said about 60 people gathered for a party at Hadley's house after his parents were killed, playing beer pong, smoking cigars and drinking. Friends described Hadley as being in a good mood and hospitable.

    Toney said Hadley claimed to have spent $2,000 on drugs and alcohol for the party, describing it as "so much fun." He said Hadley knew he had "shocked the world" and realized something about his parents as he allegedly attacked them with a hammer.

    "I said, `Did they try to stop you?'" Toney asked about the attack. "And he was like, `No, that's how I knew that they really loved me.'"

    This kid is clearly a psychopath who should be locked away from society forever. I am just workin on my trolling techniques. This is, in fact, the lion's den of IM after all. I feel very strongly about the other thread though. That man would die in prison if it were up to me.
