16-year-old Florida teenager, Kit Darrant, got angry with his mother and decided to kill her by stabbing her to death in her sleep. He then cleaned up her blood, put deodorizers and laundry detergent on her, wrapped her in bedsheets and left her in a room.
For the next 8 days, he stayed in the apartment with his 3-year-old little brother. 4 days after the stabbing, he threw a party while his mother decomposed in the next room.

Relatives kept calling, but he told them his mother couldn’t come to the phone.
Finally, his aunt, Rena Emile, stopped by the complex Wednesday night and discovered her sister’s body.
Police said she had been stabbed 14 times.
“He kept making excuses,” Rena Emile said.
According to the Miami-Dade arrest affidavit, Darrant and his mother quarreled about his late hours.
He said he was angry and decided to kill her when she went to bed. He waited, then attacked her by wrapping his hands around her bare neck and choking her until she lost consciousness, the police report said. But his mother, who was face down, would not go easily.
Realizing that she was still breathing, he went into the kitchen, grabbed a butcher knife, returned to the bedroom and stabbed her in the back of the neck, police said. She was still breathing, so Darrant turned her over and stabbed her repeatedly in the chest and arms until she was dead.
His baby brother was sleeping in the next room.
Afterward, Darrant wiped the blood from the knife, removed his soaked clothing and went to sleep, police said.
The next morning, he cleaned up the bedroom covered the body and tried to hide the smell as the body decomposed, authorities said.
Neighbors saw him coming and going with friends and driving his mother’s vehicle at all hours, which they say was odd, but no one said anything. His aunt was upset that no one said a word after his suspicious activity.
“The neighbors said they saw him coming and going and hanging with friends,” Emile said. “I can’t believe that people thought it was odd and never said anything.”
