18 year-old Robert Bever and his 16 year-old brother Michael will be charged as adults for killing their parents and three of their siblings. The brothers stabbed their parents April and David to death as well as their siblings Daniel, 12, Christopher, 7, and Victoria, 5. Their 13 year-old sister Crystal is in serious condition at a local hospital, while 2 year-old sister Autumn was unharmed by the teens.
Robert and Michael were arrested after Crystal survived multiple stab wounds and told police her brothers were behind the gruesome killings. A coworker of Robert’s said he “didn’t have any friends outside of the family” and that he never said anything against any of his family members, just saying they were a close family because they were in their home in Broken Arrows, Oklahoma “all the time.”
The search for two 14 year-old boys who took an unsupervised fishing trip to the Bahamas and have been missing for three days took a tragic turn when their boat was found capsized. The boat was found 67 miles off Ponce de Leon inlet. There was no sign of either boy, with officials saying the search has now been “recalculated.”
Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen were last seen on Friday near Jupiter, Florida, after setting out to go fishing. The families expected the boys to come back in the afternoon, but when they didn’t, it was believed they had set out for the Bahamas. NFL legend Joe Namath, Cohen’s neighbor, joined the search and offered a $100,000 reward.
