Alyssa Hatcher 17 allegedly stole her parents’ debit card and used it to pay two people to kill them

The Lake County Sheriff's Office says that a witness told police that Hatcher gave her friend "a lot of money" to find someone to kill her parents, according to an arrest affidavit.

The teen, from Florida, took her parents' debit card and has subsequently been charged with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder, as her parents are thankfully still alive.

A 17-year-old girl used her parents' stolen debit card in an attempt to pay someone to kill her mother and father, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office. The first transaction, according to the affidavit, was split into two parts: $100 was for cocaine while the remaining $400 was given to a friend to find someone willing to kill her parents.

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. He told investigators that he saw his high school girlfriend the morning of September 9 at a "known drug house," where she told him of the alleged plot.

She went on to say that "since the act was never carried out, she gave the other $900 to a black male to kill her parents", the affidavit says.

Neither plots were successful.

While being interviewed by police, Hatcher admitted to stealing the card and making the transactions.

Sergeant Fred Jones, public information officer for the Lake County Sheriff's Office, didn't respond to Oxygen.com's request for comment.

A Florida nurse and her police lieutenant husband are pressing charges against the woman's daughter after she allegedly paid money to have them murdered. "This was just somebody who, for whatever reason, just didn't want her parents around".

First, word of Hatcher's alleged plan started to spread around Umatilla High School.

Hatcher was transferred Tuesday morning from the Lake County Jail to the juvenile jail in Ocala.

"There were people who were saying on social media how much she hates her parents", Jones said.
