"Teen couple invited friends over to smoke weed and party after murdering girlfriend's grandparents and hiding their bodies in the house"

I think the headline speaks for itself. I know this isn't the first case of kids murdering their parents/grandparents but the details of this case are quite unique.

More life wasted

Cassandra, 17, and her boyfriend Johnny Rider, 18, stand accused of murdering her 63-year-old grandparents Wendy and Randall Bjorge, whose rotting corpses were found inside their suburban home they shared with the teen on April 8.

Good thing they were caught

Cassandra reportedly told officers after her arrest that she and her boyfriend planned the murder of her grandparents for days, and even planned to kill her mother, her stepfather and members of Rider's family.

Cold blooded

On the night of the murders, the teens are said to have staked out the home and waited until all the lights went out. Then they sneaked in and beat Bjorge's grandparents, using a tire iron, hammer and a baseball bat. 

'Johnny began to attack the grandmother,' Brucz said. 'Bjorge then said she had a surge of energy. She then dragged her grandmother into her grandfather's bedroom. She was duct taped.

They then sliced the elderly couple's throats using butcher knives.

No comment

After the murders, the teens stayed in the house for several days, smoking marijuana, Brucz said.

At one point, they even invited friends over to party.

By now it should be obvious that you #ed up big time

Meanwhile, the teens pretended that Cassandra's grandparents were still alive. Cassandra pretended to be her grandmother and texted worried friends and family that she was OK.

'She admitted after the murder she was texting family members because they were worried about them, and she was pretending to be Wendy,' Brucz said

Obviously a troubled life; be a positive role model in your children's lives folks.

Bjorge had gone missing 'multiple times' prior to her grandparents' murder, a police official told DailyMail.com.

She was a 'habitual runaway' who was known to the officers who found her grandparents' car, he added.



These are the exact faces I see when I work with troubled teens in my community and in almost every case, there is some form of mental illness and some form of abuse. I've heard all types of confessions and stories and never in a million years could I imagine one of them commiting a crime of this nature. So what drives a teen to do something like this? A perfect storm of events? Hmm..

Seems irrelevant to mention the weed smoking, unless the media wanna push "that sort" of narrative.


Couple of scumbags.

Agree 100%. What does smoking weed have to do with any of this? Were they also having pre-martial sex? Or even worse, drinking alcohol?? Did they squeeze in a couple packs of Marlboros??? What a waste of copy space.

Regarding the alleged crime, there's absolutely no excuse for this heinous act. Let's hope the 17-year old is tried and punished as an adult.

Is it more and more these types of cases, where murder of ones own family is happening, if more common place or is it media(including this site) sharing it. Sickening nonetheless.

Exactly, mj is not a cause. Teens smoke cigs and drink too and use a plethora of other drugs that may be more responsible, but the main responsibility lies on them. Throw away the key if anything.

There are people out there who don't like weed, and the federal government still views it as an evil thing too.

I'd consider it narrative-pushing in the given area, agenda-driven as well.

Otherwise, it is a data-point that most will over-look, as it is a side-note rather then a causation.

My thoughts exactly!
Cannabis consumption doesn't lower ones morals like the headline is trying to imply.
In fact if anything it has the opposite effect and makes most more morally accountable.

I suspect the cannabis is the grandparents.
Same with the prescription drugs, which is most likely what the kids were really after.
More victims and lives lost because of the opioid epidemic.
I wonder how many drug companies use the daily mail for advertisement?

So the girl quit school, spending her time running away and doing drugs of some sort.


Brucz says Cassandra decided to kill her grandparents because 'she had basically had enough'.


Had enough of what? The attempt to discipline her? Why were her parents unfit to raise her as the grandparents had custody of her?

This girl needed serious help and I didn't read anything of that ever happening.

Unfortunately The people who rally against it will see it as if it were written in enlarged bold text. It will further their agenda.

Yeah, if drug use was somehow a factor in this brutal murder, it's more likely meth or crack...
Very gruesome and disturbing....sending prayers to the traumatized family and friends of these people...

I'd be curious to know what medications the two were on, and for how long. To be this callous, one has to be cognitively impaired or just a bad seed. I don't believe any sort of short term high, wether by pot or some other controlled substance, would allow someone to kill one's grandparents and then remain in the home for days on end. If it were the result of a high, remorse would've set in at some point. However, if they were taught from an early age that negative feelings should just be medicated away, and had their brain chemistry changed as a result of prolonged medication, this could be the result, IMHO.

You know, that never once crossed my mind as I was reading it. I didn't get the sense they were pushing an agenda, I just thought they were detailing the nature of events. What if they didn't mention it, only to mention it later on out of nowhere? I'd assume some people would be like why wasn't it mentioned earlier?

I agree weed had nothing to do with the crime, just like the party has nothing to do with the crime, but I just saw it as details to the story.

Most of those are also ones who don't seem to acknowledge any potential benefit, as well as don't understand what exactly happens from smoking/ingestion of the drug..

Also depends on if it was laced with anything else.

Whenever I see something like this, so gruesome, so cold-blooded, makes me think there was heavy physical and/or sexual abuse growing up.

Meth or crack?

No.

Maybe PCP or bath salts.

Tie them up, throw em in a burlap sack full of rocks and find a bridge.
Of course I'm not 100% serious..a little bit though, and agree the MJ reference is irrelevant.

I have no idea really, something went really wrong with these two kids / monsters ? It's even more disturbing that they collaborated as a team.

I doubt they were high at all. Just lost souls..

Probably a product of many things stemming from their early years mixed with a lot of ignorance.
