On October 5th at around 12:30am, 911 received a very calm sounding call from 17-year-old Jake Evans, claiming he killed his 48-year-old mother and his 15-year-old sister with a .22 revolver. A family of six reduced to a family of four.
The suspect’s father was away on a business and his two other sisters were not at home at the time of the killing in Aledo, Texas.
When the suspect called 911 he said:
“I am pretty, I guess, evil…whatever,”
He was asked why he did it while on the phone with the dispatcher, he mentioned that he wasn’t really mad at them, but he did kind-of-sort-of plan on killing them. In the end, Evan explains he didn’t like their attitudes.
“I don’t know…it’s weird,”
“I wasn’t even really angry with them. It just kind of happened. I’ve been kind of planning on killing for a while now.”
“I don’t really like people’s attitude. They’re … verbally rude to each other and stuff like that”
The biggest concern Evans expressed seems to be the nightmares he might have. He asked the dispatcher if she could inform him of any medications that prevent “nightmares and stuff like that”.
“I’m really worried about, like, nightmares and stuff like that,”
“I don’t mean to sound like a wimp or anything, but this is, wow, I’ve never, like, done anything violent in my whole life.”
After a 25 minutes on the phone with 911 dispatch, Jake Evans was arrested and is charged with capital murder on no bail.
