Standing face to face, staring directly into Dr. Oziel's eyes, Erik took a deep breath and said, "We killed our parents."
Thirty years ago, a serious murder happened in Beverly Hills (California, USA). Billionaire couple Jose Menendez and Kitty Menendez were brutally murdered in their own luxurious mansion on the night of August 20, 1989. After investigating the efforts, the veil of secrets about the bloodthirsty villain is also revealed in the astonishment of many people.
Lyle and Erik brothers on trial for their crimes.
Plan of two assassins
Erik said the moment before the massacre occurred, the two brothers got together and talked about being threatened with an offense from the list of inheritances. Over the years, Lyle and Erik had to live according to the will and control of their father, growing almost without childhood. Now both are at risk.
After discussing this, Lyle and Erik teamed up to work together to fight their father. However, the problem is that both will definitely be identified by their mothers. In the end, although they did not want to hurt their mother, these children decided not to get involved in any dangerous situation.
The weapon the brothers used was purchased in San Diego the next day. According to calculations, although the scene has many fingerprints of both, but will not say anything, because this is your home so that it can be everywhere. Upon completion of the preparation, Lyle decides that the time for deliveries will be Sunday night, when many neighbors are not home.
After committing the crime, the two brothers fled and stopped in the middle of the road, waiting for the cars to pass and then throwing guns in a nearby ravine. After that, they went to a gas station and changed their clothes, went home and told the police.
Knowing that his brother had said everything, Lyle was furious and constantly threatened to kill Dr. Oziel if he accused him. So Oziel set the tape recorder every time the two brothers arrive and tries to find out why Lyle and Erik can work so cruelly with their own parents.
Detective Zoeller finally found a store that sold guns to the Lyle and Erik store – Big 5 on Convoy Street. The owner confirmed that he had sold two 12-gauge Mossberg guns for almost $ 200 each on August 18, 1989.
Arms sales documents were signed with Donovan Jay Goodreau with the address in San Diego. However, the signature on the receipt with Donovan's actual signature did not match. The examiner was invited to give the signature on the receipt with the writing of the Menendez brothers. The results show that they belong to the same person.
The secret curtain was completely revealed. From that evidence, police arrested two suspects.
On June 20, 1993, the first formal trial occurred. The brothers Lyle and Erik are very calm, even smiling and raising their hands to greet the participants. With allegations of murdering biological parents, defense lawyers and two suspects categorically refused.
When referring to the purchase of two pistols at San Diago, Erik said: "At the time, my father often beat us, so maybe he was so angry that we intended to buy weapons, but because of the time. gun for a long time, so we do not buy any more. "With other allegations, the two brothers together argued and made reasonable words to prove they were not to blame.
On August 21, 1995, the second trial began. 64 witnesses were called to the trial to testify and the trial should last 23 weeks. In the following days, the remaining witnesses went to court to test the Menendez brothers for the final indictment.
