Officers Horrified When Teen Reveals Why He Executed Mother

A teenage boy from Wheatfield Township, Michigan, has been accused of fatally shooting his mother, Lisa Marie Willson, because she did not allow him to own a puppy. The 19-year-old named Andrew has been arrested and charged with felony firearm possession and murder.

According to the Lansing State Journal, Andrew used a family firearm, a .22 Magnum rifle, to shoot his mother in the head while she slept during the early hours of the morning.

Lansing authorities have reported that Andrew called 9-11 shortly after he shot and killed his mother, whereupon he told local police that he had arrived home and discovered his mother dead in bed. When deputy sheriffs and police officers arrived at the boy’s house, located in 200 block of Linn Road, they quickly determined that the boy’s mother had been fatally shot in the back of the head.

Charles Buckland, a detective for Ingham County Sheriff’s Department, has told the DailyMail that there were no other people who entered the Willson residence the night Ms. Willson was murdered. According to Mr. Buckland, the incident that triggered Andrew’s violent behavior was his mother’s demand that her son leave a young puppy – that he allegedly found abandoned in the neighborhood – at his father’s Dansville home.

Andrew found the puppy several weeks before murdering his mother and arguments about the dog’s future became a frequent event in the Willson home.    

Despite Andrew’s misleading tale, Ingham County police officers quickly realized that the boy’s story didn’t make any sense. For starters, veteran investigators noticed that Andrew’s description of events kept changing.

When authorities located the murder weapon, firearm analysts determined that a spent shell casing and live round were still loaded in the Magnum rifle.

Judge Mark Blumer oversaw Andrew’s arraignment in the 55th District Court, where he was denied bond and scheduled for a Court appearance in September.

The online response to this incident has reignited the perpetual debate on gun violence in America. One Fox News commenter, named ‘v3ngence’, highlighted the problem and blamed Republicans for the high rates of gun-related violence, sarcastically writing:

“But not a gun problem right? How would a good guy with a gun have worked here? Mom should have been packing heat right? You RepubliCons still love getting killed by your guns more than joining us in the middle class!”

Another user has denied that gun laws are relevant to this incident, writing:

“After a life time of getting what he wanted, never having to face his misdeeds, gold stars in government schools for occasionally being in his seat, the poor snowflake was not prepared for rejection.  Our laws are enabling this behavior.”

This view was supported by ‘realist304’, who blamed the incident on the soft upbringing of modern American teenagers. “Maybe, at 19, he should have moved out of mommy's house, then he could have all the dogs he wanted.  Spoiled little brats!” emphasized the outraged commenter.
