(Mirror Daily, United States) – Recently, the Lawrenceville community has been turned upside down by a series of grisly events, which claimed the lives of an elderly couple. According to a Gwinnett County Police Department spokesperson, Cassie Bjorge (17) and Johnny Rider (19), two Lawrenceville teens, has recently been taken into custody and charged with the murder of Bjorge’s grandparents and for their attempt to kill the boy’s older sister as well as her boyfriend.
The details of the Georgia couple’s murders are horrific, for lack of another term. According to the authorities, Cassie Bjorge was living with Wendy and Randall Bjorge, her maternal grandparents. On more than one occasion, the teen complained about the couple being too strict. And so, the teen together with Johnny Rider, her boyfriend, devised a plan to eliminate the girl’s grandparents.
Elderly Couple Slaughtered in Their Own House
With no remorse, Cassie and Johnny butchered the elderly couple and hid their bodies inside the house. According to the authorities, Wendy and Randall Bjorge suffered an excruciating death at the hands of the teen couple. The two used baseball bats, several knives, a hammer, and even a tire iron in order to kill the two individuals.
However, what came after that is even more terrifying. Allegedly, after killing Cassie’s grandparents, the two of them dumped the bodies in a room and placed rags under the door to prevent the rotten smell from spreading to other areas of the house. Moreover, right after murdering the elderly couple, the two teens smoked marijuana inside the house.
According to their testimonies, they’ve shared the same house with the bodies for several days, and they’ve even thrown a party inside the house. However, the Georgia couple had bigger plans. After murdering Cassie’s grandparents, the couple decided that they should also kill Rider’s family members.
The authorities declared that they tried to murder Rider’s sister and boyfriend, but, fortunately, their attempt ended in failure.
Authorities Tracked Down the Georgia Couple Helped by Rider’s Sister
A Gwinnett County Police Department spokesperson declared that the bodies of Wendy and Randall Bjorge were discovered during a welfare check. Subsequently, the authorities were able to identify, track down, and arrest Cassie Bjorge and Johnny Rider after the boy’s sister told them about their murder attempt.
Given the gravity of the murders, the authorities requested the assistance of a SWAT team to apprehend the Georgia couple. The two were tracked down to an apartment complex, where the authorities managed to place them in custody.
