In a chilling phone call to 9-11 operators last week, 17-year-old Jake Evans admitted to shooting his mother and sister to death. The call, during which the young man said he had hoped to kill the two without putting them through any pain, opened with the youngster's startling admission.
"I just killed my mom and my sister," he said. "I shot them with a .22 revolver."
However, the details didn't end there. Evans went into the shocking factors surrounding the incident.
"I just thought it would be quick, you know," the teen told the dispatcher of the crime, which was committed in Annetta South, Texas. "I didn’t want them to feel any pain. That’s why I used a gun, but it was like everything went wrong."
The call was made on Thursday evening around 12:30 a.m., according to authorities. Rather than being shaken by his actions, the teen generally remained calm and detailed the crime in its entirety to 9-11 operators before police arrived on the scene. Evans was then arrested without incident and the bodies of Jami Evans, 48, and Mallory Evans, 15, were removed from the home, The Orange Leader reports.
Police don't currently have a motive for the murders, as Evans had no history of mental illness or substance abuse. In fact, the young man even told the dispatcher that he wasn't angry with his mother or his sister.
"I wasn't even really angry with them. It just kind of happened. I had been kind of planning on killing for a while now," Evans proclaimed, saying that he wanted to kill "pretty much anybody."
As his basis for wanting to commit murder, Evans ironically said that he didn't like the negative attitudes people generally have. He also explained that his family was suffocating him and then said that he is "evil." The teen also admitted that "this is really going to mess me up in the future."
Among the details he shared during the call, Evans recounted how he convinced his 15-year-old sister to leave her room before the shooting.
"See, my sister, I told my sister that my mom needed her. She was in her room, and she came out of her room, and I, uh, I, I shot her," he said. "She rolled down the stairs, and I shot her again. And then I went down, and I shot my mom about maybe three or four times."
The teenager also has two other sisters who were unharmed in the incident -- one who is away at college and another who lives across the street from the family home with his grandparents. His father, who also lived in the upscale home in a gated community, was away on business at the time.
Naturally, the local community is shocked.
