Per the affidavit, Alyssa then said she paid $900 to "a black man" to kill her parents when the first person didn't act. Hatcher was arrested Tuesday on two counts of solicitation of murder, according to the Tampa Bay Times. She'll get her next court date from that location, he added.

Bank statements from the card allegedly used by Hatcher to coordinate the killings showed a withdrawal of A$730 and another of A$1,300.

Detectives interviewed Hatcher's boyfriend, who told them he had seen her at a well-known drug house on the morning of September 9, where she informed him of her plan to have her parents murdered.

She also revealed that $100 (£80) of the first transaction was used to buy cocaine and another $400 (£320) was given to her friend in return for them finding someone to kill her parents.

Neither plots were successful.

Hatcher's social media profiles indicate that she was a cheerleader at Umatilla High School.

The Swoop aircraft's pilot announced an emergency landing would have to be made and the plane returned to Abbotsford Airport. In a tweet, it thanked the captain and crew for ensuring the safety of everyone on the flight.

Sgt. Fred Jones of the Lake County Sheriff's Office said investigators were trying to figure out a motive.

After Hatcher was arrested, she was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.

Umatilla police also arrested the girl on theft charges, according to the report.

Confirming that Hatcher's parents wanted to press charges, Jones told local station WOFL-TV, "When it comes to something like that, I can not imagine the shock you would be in as a parent knowing that this is my daughter - what my daughter meant to do".

Hatcher's parents called police after they noticed they were missing a portion of their money.

In her report, the deputy said the suspect sent a second text to the girl saying, "I found someone to do it and it's going to happen tonight". "This was just somebody, who for whatever reason, just didn't want her parents around", Jones told WFTV.
