Police were called to the home on Thursday after someone reported there were bodies inside. Once inside, police reported that the teens were playing video games as the rotting, dismembered bodies were in the home.
“This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,” Joliet Police Chief Mike Trafton said. “Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.”
Adam M. Landerman, 19; Alisa R. Massaro, 18; Bethany L. McKee, 18; and Joshua F. Miner, 24, were charged with first-degree murder and are being held on $10 million bail.
Worse: the teens were friends of the victims; worst: Adam M. Landerman is the son of the Joliet police Sgt. Julie Larson, who has not participated in the investigation.
Friends and family of the victims have vowed to attend every court hearing to seek justice for their loved ones. The next court date for the accused murderers is in early February.
