15-year-old Kipland 'Kip' Kinkel was tagged as someone who was "Most Likely to start WW3" in his middle school yearbook. So it comes as no surprise that he turned out to be a psychotic killer after he was expelled from school for possessing a loaded, stolen handgun.

Kip's obsession with guns and violence led his father to think that buying him a gun would re-channel his unhealthy fixation into a passive hobby. He could not have been more wrong. On May 20, 1998, Kip used a .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle and killed his parents in cold blood. 

The next morning, he made his way back to school with two hunting knives, his rifle, a 9x19mm Glock 19 pistol, and a .22-caliber Ruger MK II pistol with 1,127 rounds of ammunition. He fired 51 rounds in the cafeteria, killing two, and injuring 23 others. Kinkel is currently serving a 111-year sentence without the possibility of parole.

A sensitive and smart teenager, Esmie Tseng was under a lot of pressure from her parents to constantly perform well. Her success-driven Chinese parents were too much for her to handle and she often felt suffocated with their expectations.

In various blog postings, Esmie revealed how she was grounded for scoring 'just' a 96% on an exam.

She was told she would be moved to another school district to punish her because once, she got three B's on her report card. One day, when things got too much for her, she grabbed a knife and stabbed her mother to death.

One fateful night, the boys grabbed a shotgun and brutally killed their parents by pumping so many bullets into them, that it left the parents unrecognizable.

Their odd behavior and demeanor at their parents funeral was suspicious as was the fact that they blew up $1 million within the first six months of murdering their parents. After being charged with murder, their lawyer tried to frame the Menendez brothers' father for sexual assault that resulted in the shooting.

Luckily, the defense strategy did not work and both the brothers are now serving life in prison.

16-year-old Marie Robards was a great student and a 'perfect' daughter. She would have gotten away with the perfect crime as well, but she made the mistake of confessing her crime to a friend who reported it to the authorities. When her father died in 1993, autopsy revealed nothing out of the ordinary and people believed that he had died of natural causes. 

Marie had stolen barium acetate from the laboratory in school and laced her father's food with it. The equipment to detect the poison is extremely expensive, and the hospital, where he was admitted after he got gravely ill, overlooked it. Marie ended up confessing to one of her friends after over an year, while the two of them were reading Shakespeare's Hamlet (she felt guilty after reading the poisoning scene). 

The girl turned to the police, who ordered a test, and arrested Marie the moment they got the results. When asked why she killed her father, she calmly said that she wanted to live with her mother and not her father. She had decided that the only way she could do this was to remove him altogether. She claims that she never intended to kill him but to only make him sick. She was sentenced to 28 years in prison.

12-year-old Alex King and his older brother 13-year-old Derek King had extremely troubled youths and never had a stable home until they wound up living with their father in 2001. 

The boys struck up a friendship with an adult named Rick Chavis who was their father's friend. Alex and Rick went on to have a homosexual relationship, which led to Alex writing down notes like, "Before I met Rick, I was straight, but now I am gay." In fact, investigators also found a photograph of Alex placed over Chavis's bed. 

The brothers decided to plot to kill their father as neither of them liked him. In November 2001, firefighters responded to call which came from the King house and while putting out the blaze, they noticed 40-year-old Terry King dead on the couch. After many testimonies and multiple trials, it was still unknown who actually swung the bat that killed Terry. Alex was released from prison in 2008 and Derek in 2009.

Most would never have guessed that 18-year-old Lowell Lee Andrews would end up being a murderer. He looked more like a stamp collector and was a quiet boy. A newspaper from his hometown even labeled him as "The Nicest Boy in Wolcott". In  1958, he visited his family for Thanksgiving. On November 28, 1958, the zoology major was reading a novel upstairs in his bedroom while his mom, dad, and sister were watching TV downstairs.

Once he finished reading the novel, he shaved, put on a suit and went downstairs holding a revolver as well as a rifle. He shot his sister Jennie right between the eyes killing her in one shot. He proceeded to pump six bullets into his mother and seventeen in his father who died while trying to crawl to the kitchen for safety.

Feeling no remorse, Lowell went on to see a movie, discarded his guns in a river and returned home to notify the police that his parents had been shot. His emotionless behavior is what gave him away and a family minister persuaded Lowell to confess to the crime. He was executed by hanging in November. He said he had no reason to do it and does not know why he did.
