Alan Hruby, the 19-year-old accused of killing all three members of his family last month, described himself on Facebook as “an up and comer from Oklahoma. Striving for the best life has to offer.”
That and other clues are revealed in a newly disclosed search warrant as investigators in Duncan, Oklahoma, look to Hruby’s social media accounts to help build their case.
On Oct. 14 a judge granted permission for Stephens County District Attorney’s investigator Justin Scott to collect data from two Facebook pages – one public and one private – created by Hruby, a University of Oklahoma freshman charged with the Oct. 9 murders at home of his father, newspaper publisher John Hruby, 50; his mother, Joy “Tinker” Hruby, 48; and sister Katherine, 17.
“Duncan police officers have received information that Alan Hruby had posted comments on his Facebook that indicated a dislike of his family,” Scott wrote, reports the The Duncan Banner. “This information was provided to Duncan police officers that Alan Hruby’s comments were directed at harming Alan’s family members.”
Also revealed on a Facebook page, according to NewsOK.com, were Alan Hruby’s claims that he was “represented” by a public relations company and a modeling agency, both in Oklahoma City.
Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks previously said money was the motive that drove Alan Hruby, who is accused in documents obtained by PEOPLE of stealing his father’s 9 mm pistol, then lying in wait to kill each member of his family in their upscale Duncan home.
Known for his free-spending ways – Alan Hruby wrote on one blog, “Being a shopaholic is not a bad thing” – he’d been cut off financially by his family after being charged with credit card fraud, and told investigators that he owned $3,000 to a loan shark.
After the murders, which went undiscovered for four days, police said Alan Hruby went to Dallas and stayed at the Ritz-Carlton hotel to party during the weekend of the Oklahoma-Texas football game. Hruby later confessed to the killings.
