A young boy has reportedly murdered his father, mother and his 5-year-old younger brother after which he abandoned their remains and fled the house.
The 19-year-old, Isaac Tiharihondi, whose slain father was a pastor committed the act in their home earlier this week.
Tiharihondi from Houston, Texas, was fished out by police officials from his hideout in a hotel in Jackson, Mississippi, at about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 4, 2015.
He was immediately arrested two days after the bodies of his parents and his 5-year-old brother were found inside their home.
The victims were identified as Reverend Dr. Israel Ahimbisibwe, his wife Dorcus, and their son, Israel Jr.
Isaac Tiharihondi is accused of using items including a bat, a hammer and a lamp, to beat his father to death, while his younger brother was stabbed with a kitchen knife, according to the criminal complaint, Worldwide Weird News reports
Police disclosed that Tiharihondi had earlier told friends and relatives that he had joined the Marines, and that he was leaving at the end of the month.
His deceased parents didn’t take him seriously and were planning to confront him about it before they were discovered dead.
Meanwhile, recruiters could not find any document stating that Tiharihondi was actually enlisted to join the Marines.
