Murder Of Oklahoma Baseball Player Was Blamed On Boredom

There are some sick individuals out there commiting heinous crimes, but the motive behind the murder of an Australian attending an Oklahoma college on a baseball scholarship may just take the cake this week.

After 22-year-old Christopher Lane was found dead on Friday, the search for his killer began. It ended when a trio of teenagers aged 15, 16 and 17 were taken into custody and confessed to the crime.

It's amazing that this band of psychopaths found each other at such a young age. When asked why they shot and killed Lane, these heartless teenagers basically blamed a slow summer.


"They saw Christopher go by, and one of them said: 'There's our target,'" Ford said. "The boy who has talked to us said: 'We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody.'"

"They followed him in the car to that area, shot him in the back and drove off," Ford said.

Ford told the television station KOCO in Oklahoma City that one of the teens said they shot Lane for "the fun of it."
