An Iowa teenager named Noah Crooks has shot dead his mom, the younger teenager who committed the crime on the 24th of March 2012 was 13yr old when he attempt raping his own mother and eventually shot her dead cause she took away his cult of his duty video game because he got bad grades in school.
Crooks, who is now 14, was charged with first-degree murder and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse in the March 24, 2012, slaying of his mother, 37-year-old Gretchen Crooks.
In the 911 recording made on the night of the murder at the family’s Osage home, Noah Crooks could be heard telling dispatcher Barb Michael: ‘I’m not joking at all. She’s dead. I’m scared. I killed my mom with my .22. I don’t know why I did it.’
During the conversation, which lasted about 10 minutes, the boy repeated his confession several times The Global Gazette reported.
‘I feel crazy and I know I’m not. I think I have some form of ADD,’ Crooks told the 911 operator. ‘I tried to rape her. I tried to rape her but I couldn’t do it.
‘Who tries to rape their own mom? My life is down the drain now.’
As Michael placed a call to deputies and sent an ambulance to the Crooks’ home, Noah told him that his weapon is empty and appeared concerned that the officers might shoot him.
‘I just wish it was a dream so I could wake up and I could kiss her and hug her,’ then-13-year-old Crooks said.
Noah rambled on about his mother making him homemade doughnuts earlier that night and expressed disbelief that he killed her after she did that for him.
He then revealed that Gretchen Crooks had taken away his ‘Call of Duty’ video game because he got bad grades in school, and that is when he snapped.
‘Something just came over me,’ he told the dispatcher.
On Friday, Noah’s father, William Crooks, 41, testified that on the day of his wife’s murder, he was at a going-away party for his boss when he got a text message from his son that read: ‘Dad this is Noah. I killed Mom accidentally, I egret it. Come home now please.’
Crooks was certain that his son was kidding and responded in kind: ‘OK. Just throw her in the grove. We’ll take care of her later.’
About 20 minutes later, a sheriff’s deputy called Mr Crooks and told him that he needed to come home because an accident had taken place.
Crooks pulled up to the house at around 8.20pm on March 24. In court Friday, he described the scene inside his home as ‘chaos.’
The father explained o the jury that his was was the disciplinarian in the family, and had a stormy but loving relationship with their son.
Mr Crooks added that the mother and son would fight often, but later make up and play games together. She was the one who bought the .22 caliber Ruger as a present for Noah in 2010 when he was about 11 years old.(WHY?)
The father said that his son did once say that he wanted to kill his mother, but he didn’t take the threat seriously.
There was no history of domestic abuse or criminal records associated with any Crooks family members.
On March 24, 2012, Crooks is believed to have fired a .22 caliber at his mother at their rural home. The teen was said to be calm and emotionless when he called 911 reporting the shooting.
