FORT PIERCE, Fla. - The 911 tapes in the Tyler Hadley case have just been released. Hadley is the 17 year old accused of beating to death his parents last month with a hammer and then hosting a party at their home.
The first caller on the 911 audio tapes is a female. On the 911 recording, she can be heard saying, "It's not an emergency. Someone had a party tonight and someone reported that this kid had killed their parents."
The second recording is of a male who claims he was at Tyler Hadley's party.
He can be heard saying that a mutual friend confided in him and said, "He told me that the kid, Tyler, is f----d up and he was like--he told me--he told me that the gist of it-that he did something to his parents. I was like, bro, I don't want to know any details. He said he already called and reported everything to CrimeStoppers. I was just calling cause I felt I needed to."
911 operator: "Did he say specifically he hurt them? Like, are they still alive?" Tipster: "My understanding of it was that he killed them."
The caller seems shaken and concerned.
Tipster: "His parents--the bodies are supposed to be at his house. Apparently. That's my understanding of it. It's all jumbled up. I'm really like scared, confused, you know."
Tipster: "I don't know if there's blood 100 percent. I think it's dead serious. I don't know if they're joking about it. The kid, tyler, had a s------d of money. Like $5000 out of nowhere. I don't know where he got it from."
But that wasn't the only call police got. The state attorney's office confirms that someone called Crimeline in Orlando to report the Port St. Lucie crime. The Orlando Crimeline Call Center turned around and reported the tip to local authorities.
Call center: He's claiming that he killed his parents at about 5 o'clock last night.
Call center: I guess they were constantly fighting and they're supposed to be in their bedroom.
Back to the partygoer we heard from on the 911 audio recordings. He says, "I don't think anyone would be this serious about - take it this far. I don't think it's a joke. I really think he needs help."
Not only were 911 recordings released. But so was evidence regarding witnesses, a large amount of cash Hadley allegedly had that night, plus what kind of student Hadley allegedly was in school.
Documents show Tyler Hadley didn't have any problems with conduct at Port St. Lucie High -- but he was considered a habitual truant. He apparently was mainly a "B" and "C" student.
We also learned from examining court documents who's on the witness list, as well as information that he divulged to his best friend.
The document says that 2 days before the party, Hadley told his best friend he "...was going to kill his own parents. It goes on to say he had made... "three or four similar statements about killing his parents over the past several months."
Tyler Hadley remains at the St. Lucie County Jail. Hadley's attorney says Hadley is pleading not guilty. Hadley's next scheduled court date is September 1st.
