    17-year-old murder suspect inspired by ‘Halloween’ slasher flick

    Jake Evans fatally shot his mother and sister after watching the horror film numerous times. Evans wrote he was ‘amazed at how at ease the boy was during the murders and how little remorse he had afterward’ in a confession to police.

          

    After over an hour of nervous pacing, Evans knocked on his 15-year-old sister Mallory's door and said their mother Jami needed her.

    "She came out and out of the corner of her eye she saw me pointing the gun at her," he said. "She thought I was joking and told me that I was freaking her out. I shot her in the back and then the head. I ran down to the study and shot my mom three times."

      

    Though Evans is not known to have been suffering from any mental illness at the time, he writes that after the shooting, 'in shock I ran into my room and screamed at the top of my lungs that I am really messed up and that I killed my mom and sister'.

    'I then spent probably over an hour walking nervously around the house thinking how life will never be the same and how I would never see them again,' he wrote.

    'Thoughts of causing her pain kept entering my mind and were really bothering me,' he wrote. 'But then I'd think about the times she hurt my feelings or really pissed me off.'

    TWENTY MINUTES OF TERROR: SELECTED TRANSCRIPT BETWEEN JAKE EVANS AND 911 DISPATCH OPERATOR 

    911 Dispatch: Parker County 911, where is your emergency?

    Jake Evans: Uh, my house.

    911: What’s the emergency?

    Evans: Uh, I just killed my mom and my sister.

    911: What? How did you do that?

    Evans: Uh, I shot them with a .22 revolver.

    911: Are you sure they’re dead?

    Evans: They’re dead.

    911: Okay, I want you to stay on the phone with me. Are you alright?

    Evans: Yeah, I’m alright. (The gun) is on the kitchen counter.

    911: Jake, are you on any medication?

    Evans: Uh, no. I’ve been going to the allergist, I’m on allergy medication. Other than Zyrtec and Advil and Pseudoephedrine, I don’t take anything else.

    911: Is there any reason that you were so angry at your mother and your sister?

    Evans: I don’t know. … It’s weird. I wasn’t even really angry with them. It just kind of happened. I’ve been kind of, uh, planning on, uh, killing for a while now.

    911: The two of ‘em, or just anybody?

    Evans: Pretty much anybody.

    911: Why?

    Evans: I don’t know. I don’t really like, uh, people’s, uh, attitude. … I think it’s kind of, very, like, you know, emotional. They’re verbally rude to each other and stuff like that. I don’t know. It’s just my family is just kind of really I guess this is really selfish to say, but I felt they were just suffocating me in a way. I don’t know, I’m pretty, I guess, evil…Whatever, I’m sorry.

    911: Were your mom and sister in their beds?

    Evans: I don’t know. This is going to really mess me up in the future. I told my sister that my mom needed her. She was in her room, and she came out of her room, and I shot her. And she rolled down the stairs and I shot her again. And then I went down and I shot my mom maybe three or four times, but I’ll never forget this. My sister, she came downstairs and she was screaming and I was telling her that I’m sorry but just to hold still – that, you know, I was just going to make it go away. But she kept on freaking out, but she finally fell down and I shot her in the head about, probably, three or four times.

    911: Are you in the kitchen?

    Evans: Yes.

    911: Where’s your dad?

    Evans: He’s out of town. Washington, D.C. And, uh, I guess for future reference, I don’t really want to see any of my family members, like visiting or whatever. I just don’t want any type of visitors.

    911: You don’t want to hurt yourself, do you?

    Evans: Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone. (Sighs) I’m going to be messed up.

    911: You just take a deep breath. We have deputies coming, and they’re going to help you. Just to let you know, we’re going to help you, we’re not going to hurt you.

    Evans: I understand if ya’ll want to. 

    911: No, we’re there to help you, Jake. Everybody thinks we want to do bad things, but right or wrong, we want to help people, and we’re gonna help you. Do you understand that, Jake?

    Evans: Yes.

    911: Is it a gated community? Is there a gate?

    Evans: Uh, yes. You want the password? (He gives her the password)

    911: It’s going to be alright, it really is. They’ll be there shortly, won’t be long now. Jake, would you mind turning any of the porch lights on?

    Evans: I have turned the front lights on. (pauses) I was thinking of my sister. She was 15. 

    911: How long ago did (the shootings) happen?

    Evans: About, uh, 30 minutes ago. (breathes heavily)

    911: You’ll be alright, Jake. 

    Evans: I’m really worried about, like, nightmares and stuff like that. Are there any times of medications, and stuff?

    911: Well, I think there is. I don’t know, I’m not a doctor but … I’m sure your family will get you the support you need.

    Evans: I don’t mean to sound like a wimp or anything, but this is, wow, I’ve never, like, done anything violent in my whole life.

    911: You don’t sound like a violent person. But um, help will be provided for you. Medical and psychological. That will be provided, so you don’t have to worry about that right now. Take deep breaths for me now, you’re doing fine. In through your nose, and out through your mouth so you don’t hyperventilate, okay?

    Evans: (breathing)

    911: Good, you sound a lot calmer right now. 

    Evans: I didn’t want them to feel pain, that’s why I used a gun, but it’s like everything went wrong.

    911: Jake, my officers are almost there, would you be willing to walk out on your own?

    Evans: Um, yes, I forgot to say before I called, I put the gun on the counter, it’s still loaded.

    911: Okay, that’s fine. I’ll stay on the phone until it’s time for you to walk out. Are you on your home phone? Is it cordless? 

    Evans: Yes.

    911: Jake, what I want you do to is walk outside, but when you’re walking outside, stay visible, don’t walk behind any furniture. When you open the front door, put your hands up in the air, just walk very slowly, and walk outside, and keep your hands visible, alright, sweetie? I’ll talk to you later.

    Evans: Thank you (puts phone down)

    911: You’re welcome.

    It happened again! Some rich kid kills family for no reason, again!

    If you remembered this thread before, I asked about the question, 'WHY???' Well, I guess I got my answer. The kid says it himself

    I don’t know. I don’t really like, uh, people’s, uh, attitude. … I think it’s kind of, very, like, you know, emotional. They’re verbally rude to each other and stuff like that. I don’t know. It’s just my family is just kind of really I guess this is really selfish to say, but I felt they were just suffocating me in a way. I don’t know, I’m pretty, I guess, evil…Whatever, I’m sorry.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

    I suppose it's the fact that there is so much recorded information about his feelings and his perspective about what he's done that I feel so much sympathy for him. It also might be that many of us share similar feelings of frustration? Or that we are of a common age and empathize? This kid knows he's fucked and is apologetic but that doesn't excuse his actions.

    The little things he does like saying that he "didn’t want them to feel pain, that’s why [he] used a gun" and that he cooperated so willingly makes me so conflicted about how to feel about him. Almost everything he says in the call and his tone of voice contributes to me questioning whether this kid was moral or not, as @Peter_Kirkland said. I keep having to remind myself that what he did was immoral.

    In an Ethics course I was taking, I was forced to participate in a debate that defended terrorism, morally. It is reminding me of the current feelings I have.

    This kid is a sicko no doubt but what could lead to such actions? If he is so easily effected by movies he would have surely shown symptoms and weird behavior. He would have probably tried to harm or kill someone before like a class mate or family member at a much earlier age. And as he said he planned this so did he not have anything against his father? Why did he only kill this mother and sister or was he just trying to kill someone and knew that with his father home there was a smaller chance of him succeeding .

    I didn't watch that movie so I don't know what actually happened and/or whether he was just trying to mimic the steps of a character in the movie

    @BigBoss This kid would make a horrible soldier. He would probably just go nuts in the middle of a conflict or battle or whatever they are called now and just kill anyone he sees in his path then randomly suicide or something. The only feeling a soldier is supposed to have is patriotism towards his country. Not even hatred towards the enemy.

    An example of a kid who has never once been in a fight or slapped by his parents...

    Spineless twerp... There are some things you just don't experiment with. Like other people's lives. He's trying to justify what he did when he was asked "Why'd you do it" and it sounds so weird... Mainly because he did it on a whim basically, and without any particular reason...

    And how stupid must you be, to shoot someone point blank and not kill them with one shot...

    He said he went back into his bedroom to empty the shells on his bed and heard his sister making noises outside his room. He reloaded the gun and hurried back to his sister to kill her before returning to his mother's body to shoot her once more to make sure she was dead, Evans claimed.

    From the short article, but HOLY, he shot her in the back first, and then in the head....

    She was freaking out

    of course she's freaking out, she's being shot at by a maniac, standing in front of her, holding a gun telling her it's going to be okay...

    The story in the article, what he wrote and what he's saying have a lot of inconsistencies... It'd make a lot more sense if you could look around the place, could probably explain what exactly happened...

    EDIT:

    'I know now though that I'm done with killing. It's the most dreadful and terrifying thing I will ever experience. And what happened last night will haunt me forever.'

    Shit, I coulda told him that.... And without killing my family....
