On Monday, a student told a school resource deputy that one her friends had been paid a lot of money find a hit man to kill Hatcher's parents.

Teenager Alyssa Hatcher used her parents' credit card to withdraw money on two separate occasions to pay for a hitman to kill them, police have alleged. He told investigators at the Lake County Sheriff's Office she confided in him she wanted her parents dead after he saw her at a notorious drug house Monday morning.

When confronted by authorities at her home, the teen admitted to the allegations made against her.

Financial records showed that Hatcher, an Umatilla High School student, recently used her parents' stolen debit card to withdraw $500 from an ATM and send $926.40 to someone on PayPal. She later found it and a piece of paper with her bank account information written on it in her daughter's room, according to the report.

The girl's parents "advised their intent to prosecute for the charge of criminal solicitation for murder ...", stated the affidavit. She has been charged as a juvenile with two counts of criminal solicitation for murder. Hatcher then said she paid "a black male" $900 for the murder because the first "act was never carried out".

On Tuesday, Hatcher was transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Ocala, Florida, Lake County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Fred Jones said.

"There were people who were saying on social media how much she hates her parents", Jones said. "When it comes to something like that I can not imagine the shock you would be in as a parent knowing that this is my daughter-what my daughter meant to do", he added.
