Police said that a teenage girl killed her grandparents with the help of her boyfriend. Afterwards, they threw a party filled with drugs while the bodies were rotting in an adjacent room.
The shocking crime:
17-year-old Cassandra Bjorge and Johnny Rider, her 19-year-old boyfriend, killed 63-year-old Wendy and Randall Bjorge and stayed in their home in Lawrenceville, Georgia, US for days.
The couple opened the front of back doors of the house to air it and get rid of the house, according to local TV channel WSB-TV. They then had friends over and smoked cannabis.
The teenage couple beat the senior couple repeatedly with a hammer and a baseball bat, then slit their throats, as per the Gwinnett County Police.
“Johnny began to attack the grandmother. Bjorge then said she had a surge of energy. She then dragged her grandmother into her grandfather’s bedroom. She was duck taped.” detective Dave Brucz told the court:
Police entered the house and discovered the bodies on 8 April, they said that the couple had died a week earlier. Police stated that they were at the house responding to an assault, as the teenage couple attacked Rider’s sister and her boyfriend.
A string of prevented murders:
The teenage couple was charged with murder and aggravated assault, and supposedly Bjorge has confessed to the crime
Gwinnett County Police issued a statement saying: “This is a very unique and disturbing case on so many levels and detectives are still exploring motive. We may never find a scenario that makes sense to a reasonable person.”
According to a report by the Daily News, authorities stated that Bjorge and Rider murdered the elderly couple because they “basically had enough of them”. They added that the couple had also planned on killing more family members, Bjorge’s mother Amanda Sterling among them.
Sterling gave an interview to Channel 2 Action News, where she said: “In not a million years would I ever think something like this would ever happen. I need hope and strength for the days to come because it is going to be a long road.”
