‘I didn’t even mean to hurt them’: Moment boy, 14, burst into tears in the back of a police car minutes after killing parents

A teenager who was sentenced to 20 years in  prison for shooting dead both his parents regretted his actions immediately  after and said he ‘didn’t even mean to hurt them’.

Alex Crain, now 15, from Naples, Florida, was  arrested at his home in December 2010 for the slayings and has never spoken  publicly or given any reason as to why he killed them.

Now a video has been released of a  14-year-old Crain sitting in the back of a police cruiser, wailing and crying to  himself and shouting things like ‘I swear I didn’t mean to kill them’, ‘I’m  sorry’ and ‘I didn’t mean to hurt them’.

Crain’s admissions, recorded on a dashboard  camera tape, are the first – and only – insights into the former Palmetto Ridge  High School student’s state of mind after he shot his parents, Thomas and Kelly,  in their bed in December 2010.

Throughout his court case, Crain never gave a  reason as to why he shot his parents and has never explained his actions to  anyone.

Slain: The bodies of Thomas and Kelly Crain were found in the master bedroom of their Florida home around 9am in December 2010

In April, the teen was charged as an  adult  and pleaded no contest to two charges of manslaughter before being handed down  the 20-year sentence.

In the video, Crain can be seen banging his  head against the car window  and shouting: ‘I shouldn’t have done it. What the  f*** is wrong with me? I shot my own parents for no f***ing reason.’

He twice shouts at the police who are  standing outside the vehicle before  lying down and remaining silent for a  prolonged period of time.

Another tape supposedly shows Crain in the  interview room, according to NaplesNews.

When he is being fingerprinted he is heard  asking: ‘You’re testing for gunshot residue, aren’t you?’

Other than that he is said to have shown no  emotion.

Crain is currently serving out his sentence  at the Department of Corrections’ Reception and Medical Center but will be  transferred to another prison soon.
