Texas Teen Claims He Killed His Family to Prevent Them from Eating Him

 Texas Teen Claims He Killed His Family to Prevent Them from Eating Him

Authorities in East Texas have arrested an 18-year-old man, Cesar Olalde, on capital murder charges for the shootings of his parents, sister, and brother. Police in Nash, Texas, responded to a report on Tuesday that a man had harmed his family and was threatening to kill himself. Upon arrival, officers found Olalde barricaded inside a home and were informed that multiple people were dead inside.

According to a probable cause affidavit by Nash Police Officer Craig Buster, Olalde later called the police and confessed to "pulling the trigger and shooting his family."

The officers convinced Olalde to surrender. Inside the home, they discovered the bodies of his parents, Reuben Olalde and Aida Garcia, his older sister, Lisbet Olalde, and his younger brother, Oliver Olalde, in a bathroom. The affidavit noted that the victims appeared to have been shot in various locations within the residence and then dragged to the bathroom. Multiple spent cartridge casings and blood spatter were found throughout the home.

The affidavit detailed that a co-worker of Lisbet Olalde had gone to the home after she failed to arrive at work. Accompanied by a family member, the co-worker forced entry into the house, where Cesar Olalde confronted them with a firearm. The co-worker informed police that Olalde claimed he had killed his family because they were cannibals and intended to eat him.

Bowie County court records show that Olalde is being held on a $10 million bond. His defense attorney has not yet responded to requests for comment. Nash is a small town with a population of about 3,800, located on the western edge of Texarkana near the Arkansas state line.

This incident is part of a disturbing trend of mass killings in the United States. A database maintained by The Associated Press, USA Today, and Northeastern University tracks mass killings involving four or more fatalities, excluding the perpetrator, using the same standards as the FBI.
