Oklahoma police teen killed parents believing they were Satanists
Younger brother called 91q1
EDMOND, Okla — Police say a 19-year-old Oklahoma man told his younger brother that he fatally shot their parents because they were communicating with him telepathically and were Satan worshippers.
Investigators say in an affidavit released Tuesday that the younger brother called police about 2:30 a.m. Monday after waking up to his mother’s screams and the sound of gunshots. They say the 17-year-old told officers that his brother said everything would be OK and that he would bury the bodies.
Police found the bodies of 50-year-old Michael Logan Walker and 44-year-old Rachel Walker inside the home in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond and arrested their older son, Michael Elijah Walker, on first-degree murder charges.
According to the affidavit, the defendant said he shot his father “anywhere I could hit him” after his father “tackled” him. He said he then chased and shot his mother several times as she tried to flee down a hallway. He said he returned to his room to reload and shoot his mother again because he thought she was still alive, and to get a pillow that he placed over the back of her head “and shot once or twice through the pillow because the gun was very loud, indicating the noise from the gunfire was hurting his ears.”
