WAYNESVILLE, N.C. – A North Carolina woman pleaded guilty Monday to shooting her father while he was napping and later moving her friends into his house for parties, reports the Asheville Citizen-Times. According to the newspaper, Crystal Brooke Howell, now 20, was convicted of first-degree murder in the Feb. 24, 2014 death of Michael Joseph Howell, 50. She was 17 at the time of the crime. CBS affiliate WRDW reports that according to the prosecutors, Howell hid her father’s body inside a plastic container in the family’s storage shed. About a month after his death, authorities were called to the home after guests found his body.
Well, that’s one way to do it… No more father and all the parties you want. What a fucked up world that we live in. Though I will say she went about killing him the smartest way. Killing someone while they are asleep or on the shitter is foolproof, though it doesn’t happen all that often. Unless you are Tyrion Lannister.
“Miss Howell had previously told her friends that her father had killed himself,” Assistant District Attorney Jeff Jones said, according to the Citizen-Times. “She then started to drive his car and spend his money. She had her friends move in, had a drug-fueled party and even had a stripper pole installed in the kitchen.”
And then to tell people your father killed himself…Meanwhile she’s out spending his cash and living like a rock star in his home. She executed the murder perfectly but didn’t properly execute the rest of the plan. She was probably to busy greasing up the stripper pole for personal dances in the kitchen.
It appears all that partying also rewarded her a hickey? A little Pro Active would also be helpful while in the pen.
