Tragedy!! 13 yeàr old shoots his family and then kills himself

A 13-year-old boy killed his police officer parents as well as his grandmother and great-aunt
before spending a full day at school and then taking his own life.
Police believe Marcelo Pesseghini shot each victim in the head with a .40 caliber pistol early
Monday morning at the home in Sao Paulo, Brazil, before catching a lift into school with a
The father, Luiz Pesseghini, 40, a police sergeant with 19 years service was found in bed. The
mother, Andreia Pesseghini, 30, who had served in the military police for 16 years was found
on her knees in the bedroom. (Marcelo and his parents pictured above)
The grandmother, Benedita de Oliveira Bovo, 65, and great-aunt Bernadete Oliveira da Silva,
55, who lived in a different section of the house were both killed in bed.The teenager was
found dead from a gunshot to the left temple and his father's police-issue service revolver was
found nearby.
A second gun, a .32 caliber revolver, was found inside the
backpack the teenager took to
The teenager appears to have been inspired by the infamous Amityville killings of 1974 when a
man killed his parents, two bothers and two sisters at their home in Amityville, Long Island,
New York. All were found dead in their beds. On December, 9, 2012, Pesseghini posted a famous picture linked to the Amityville case on his Facebook page. CCTV footage taken from a security camera close to the property in the Brasilândia district in the northern part of São Paulo appears to show him casually walking back home after school. 'Everything seems to indicate that Marcelo (Pesseghini) killed his parents and relatives,' Itagiba Franco, of the Sao Paulo Civilian Police's homicide department, told a press conference. Franco said Pesseghini had told a friend he wanted to kill his parents and become a hitman.'He always told me he wanted to become a hired killer. He had a plan to kill his parents during
the night, so that no one would notice and escape in the parents' car and live in an
abandoned place,' police quoted the unidentified friend as saying.
Sao Paulo police commander Benedito Roberto Meira said there was no sign that someone had
broken into the house and ruled out 'an act of revenge by a criminal group' against the
teenager's father and mother.
Worryingly the teenager appears to have been inspired by the infamous Amityville killings with
the crimes bearing chilling similarities to the 1974 murders.
In the early hours of November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFeo Jr killed his parents-Ronald and Louise
and four siblings. All were found dead in their beds.
The Amityville killings later sparked rumours of the supernatural after it was claimed that the
house where they took place was haunted.
A famous picture known as the Amityville Ghost Boy which emerged in 1976 purports to show
the ghost of the youngest victim of the massacre.
In December last year Marcelo Pesseghini posted the Ghost Boy picture, on his Facebook
