PORT ST. LUCIE, FL (WFLX) - Prosecutors released more than 200 pages of documents and over 900 crime scene photos Monday in the case surrounding Tyler Hadley.
Hadley is the 17-year-old Port St. Lucie teenager charged with beating his parents to death with a hammer back in July. This case gained national attention because Hadley then threw a party in the home while his parents bodies were still inside.
In many of the photos, you see the telltale signs of a party. There are open beer bottles and liquor bottles around the home. But the real eye opener is in the back bedroom where Blake and Mary Jo Hadley were discovered. The room is in complete disarray. Blake Hadley was found underneath a chair, his wife underneath a calendar.
Police say the bedroom was locked while the party was taking place, but Hadley did confess to at least one person that he had killed someone. One party goer told Fox 29 back in July he saw a leg sticking out from underneath the pile.
Hadley promoted his party through his Facebook account. At 1:15 pm Saturday, July 16 he wrote, "party at my crib tonight... maybe". By 8:15 that night he wrote "party at my house hmu" followed by his phone number. "HMU" stands for "hit me up."
In the Medical Examiner's report on Blake Hadley, it revealed he suffered 65 bruises from the attack at the hands of his son.
A grand jury indicted Hadley last week on two counts of first degree murder.
