PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - New details from the state attorney's office have been released in the Tyler Hadley case; 911 recordings are among the loads of evidence.
The teen is accused of killing his parents then throwing a party afterwards with the bodies still in the house.
The 911 recordings are disturbing: shaken and concerned callers alluding to the first clues of what would become a gruesome scene.
Tipster: "He told me that the kid, Tyler, is f----d up. And he was like, he told me the gist of it; that he did something to his parents. I was like, bro, I don't want to know any details."
911 operator: "Did he say specifically he hurt them? Like, are they still alive?"
Tipster: "My understanding of it was that he killed them."
The tipster, apparently making the 911 calls, had just attended a party 17-year-old Tyler Hadley hosted in his parents' home after allegedly killing them last month.
Tipster: "His parents, the bodies are supposed to be at his house -- apparently. That's my understanding of it. It's all jumbled up. I'm really like scared, confused, you know."
Along with the audio recordings were loads of details on Hadley.
According to the documents, he had a large amount of cash the night of the crime.
Tipster: "I don't know if there's blood 100 percent. I think it's dead serious. I don't know if they're joking about it. The kid, Tyler, had a s------d of money. Like $5,000 out of nowhere. I don't know where he got it from."
Documents show Hadley didn't have any problems with conduct at Port St. Lucie High, but he was considered a habitual truant. He apparently was mainly a "B" and "C" student.
We also learned from court documents that two days before the party, Hadley told his best friend he "was going to kill his own parents and made three or four similar statements about killing them over the past several months".
Tyler Hadley has pleaded not guilty to the charges. He remains at the St. Lucie County Jail. His next court date is September 1.
