Authorities in Missouri say a 15-year-old murder suspect engaged in some disturbing behavior before allegedly shooting her parents at their Kansas City home earlier this year.
According to WDAF, Daejona M. Holmes wrote violent rap lyrics related to a desire to see her father killed, according to investigators. She is also accused of performing web searches on her cellphone for topics including “scary movies where kids kill parents.”
The incident occurred on April 9 at a home on Belmeade Road, according to police. The suspect’s parents, 37-year-old Kinderly Holmes and 38-year-old Brian Starr, were found dead from gunshot wounds inside the residence.
Police reports indicate that Daejona M. Holmes called authorities from a secondary location to report a violent robbery. In a later version of events, investigators say she claimed she shot her father after witnessing him shoot her mother.
In addition to the disturbing rap lyrics and web searches, police say they found a video of the suspect brandishing a firearm inside of her bedroom.
She also allegedly drew several stick figures with violent themes, including one depicting her shooting a representation of her father.
The suspect reportedly met an acquaintance at a nearby McDonald’s and explained that her parents had been shot. The witness later told investigators that he encouraged the girl to contact police.
Phone logs show the girl called nine numbers using her mother’s phone before calling authorities about an hour later.
Days later, her story allegedly changed to include her claim that she entered the home twice after the shooting to retrieve her phone and her mother’s phone, respectively.
Daejona Holmes is expected to face charges as an adult including second-degree murder. As of the latest reports available, prosecutors were seeking a $150,000 bond to be issued in the case.
