Oklahoma Teen Admits To Killing Family, Instagrams Himself Staying At Ritz-Carlton: Police

An Oklahoma teen allegedly admitted to shooting his father, mother and younger sister last week and then spending the weekend with friends at the Dallas Ritz-Carlton.

Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford says 19-year-old Alan Hruby, of Norman, confessed to killing his father, 50-year-old John Hruby, publisher of the Marlow Review newspaper; his mother, 48-year-old Tinker; and his sister, 17-year-old Katherine.

Their bodies were found in their home Monday. KSWO reported that the family was shot to death, but investigators haven’t confirmed that information, according to KFOR.

Alan Hruby allegedly confessed while in jail on a probation violation. Ford says he was notified of the confession around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said the teen made a point of repeatedly mentioning on Twitter and Instagram that he was at his dorm at the University of Oklahoma Thursday night, possibly to distance himself from the murder.

“College wouldn't be half as great with out these two peaches,” Alan wrote on Instagram under a photo of two friends lying on a bed. The image location says The Ritz-Carlton.

The bodies of his family members were found Monday morning by their housekeeper.

Alan pleaded guilty earlier this year to opening a credit card account in his grandmother’s name and spending nearly $5,000 during a trip to Europe.
