12-year-old Texas girl in alleged murder pact with second girl to kill their families

A 12-year-old girl from Texas shot her father and then turned the gun on herself in an alleged murder pact planned with a second girl to kill their families and pets.


As reported on the official Facebook page of the Parker County Sheriff’s Office in Texas, a 12-year-old girl allegedly shot herself and her father in an alleged murder pact. The incident occurred in the city of Weatherford on Tuesday, September 20.


It is believed that the girl made a pact with her friend to murder their families and pets. The second girl did not go through with it though apparently.

Sheriff Authier reported that his deputies responded to a call at around 11:30m on Tuesday. On arrival, they located a 12-year-old female lying in the street with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head. The girl’s 38-year-old father was then found inside the family’s residence with a gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Both victims were immediately transported to local hospitals by air ambulance. The investigators said the girl is believed to have shot her father, fled the scene, and later shot herself. A handgun was located lying underneath the juvenile suspect.

Sheriff’s CID members discovered during their investigation that the young suspect had planned for several weeks to murder her family and pets and had been in contact with another young female from Lufkin, Texas, regarding the murder plot.

The other juvenile female had also planned to murder her father but did not go through with the plan. They had then planned for the Weatherford girl to drive to Lufkin, pick up the second juvenile suspect and run away together to Georgia.

Lufkin Police are also investigating the incident. Parker County Sheriff’s investigators have charged the Lufkin girl with criminal conspiracy in the planning of the murder plot. As the sheriff’s office does not identify juvenile suspects they have not released the adults’ names in order to protect their identities.

Sheriff Authier said the case is in its early stages and is under active investigation. “Due to the injuries, the age of the juveniles, and the sensitive case matter, information released regarding this case will be limited”, he said.
