The father of an Iowa teen accused of murdering his mother thought the text was a joke.
William Crooks, 41, testified on Friday about a text he received from his son on March 24, 2012 that said "Dad this is Noah. I killed Mom accidentally. I regret it. Come home now please."
Fourteen-year-old Noah Crooks faces charges of first-degree murder and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse for the death of Gretchen Crooks.

During the 911 call, Noah Crooks talked about playing the violent Call of Duty video game, and that his mother had recently taken it away from him because of his bad grades.
wow that is one screwed up kid
True, but what kind of man “jokes” with his son about the son murdering his wife?
How can you even wrap your brain around this?
The schools need to start teaching “the churldren” that when you’re raping your mother, you should not kill her accidentally. Maybe the jerk was out of school on that day.
Shooting someone over 20 times is not an accident. He’ll go to juvie and get out when he’s 18 and vote democrat.
Prayers up for the mother.
I posted that before I saw what his response was. A dysfunctional family for sure.
The is one person who should be locked up and NEVER allowed to leave.
There is so much that I can’t wrap my brain around these days - especially the murder of helpless babies and almost worse when the people in power call it “woman’s health” or a “woman’s right to choose”. What could be more outrageous??
To me that lack of moral gravitas equals a dead country. We look the other way while babies are flushed down the toilet and meanwhile our mortal enemies, the Muslims, are infiltrating us - with children intact - at an alarming rate. I just hold hope that we can swing the pendulum.
This is one person that should be killed. I'll even pay for the bullet.
With due process and all that, of course.
Tell dad it was supposed to be a slip knot, a joke.
One good joke deserves another.
He sounds troubled to me.
Who was on the phone the mother or the son?
Wouldn’t the dispatcher hear the ruckus if all this was happening while someone was on the phone?
And if he’s transferred to Minnesota, still in jail or not, he’ll be a loyal Al Franken voter.
Agree. No different than a rabid animal.
Any bets this demon wasn’t jacked up on all kinds of meds? Say, Ritalin for starters, and we can go from there.
As far as the dad is concerned, it would be really tough to believe your kid just killed his mom. He maybe really did believe it was a prank of some sort.
Who Knows? Not like we’ll ever find out.
“Any bets this demon wasnt jacked up on all kinds of meds? Say, Ritalin for starters, and we can go from there.”
Agreed, people just don’t seem to realize just how dangerous some of those meds are. Look back at most of the mass killings and you’ll find that all of them were on one sort or another. There’s a reason we didn’t have as many of these back before these drugs started to be prescribed.
I wouldn't be surprised.
Especially with that whole ‘I don’t know why I did it’ theme.
Schools don’t teach that, Churches do.
That is my question, what kind of dope is this kid on.
That’s some potent sheit.
I want to kill you.
I want tooooo........
all night long.
Weird song. Even weirder when a semblance of it happens for real.
“Prayers up for the mother.”
What does this mean? She’s dead.
A definite possibility, to be sure.
OTOH, wouldn't you expect somebody who was seriously screwed up in the head to be on some kind of meds?
Causation, correlation and all that.
People don’t stop praying for souls because the person is dead. The more prayers the better.
(shrug) Yeah, probably.
That's when there will be true justice, depending on whether the murdered mother has a brother or a father as psycho as, well, a lot of people.
In this case, prayers for everyone. What a sad nightmare all around.
Prayers for the rest of us when he's walking the streets in a few years. Talk about a bad seed. He won't be changed for the better.
Shh...that’s just what John Novetske said just before his “accident”.
“He sounds troubled to me.”
He probably wasn’t hugged enough as an infant. /s
First I’ve heard of this tragic story
This is just pure evil.
His worldview wasn’t formed by the game, that was just the immediate reason for his anger. Since the media and schools have taught him that he needs immediate gratification and his self-esteem was at stake he blamed mom.
Mom became an obstacle to his self-gratification, this violated everything he was ever taught. Planned Parenthood even tells those HIV-AIDS carrying youngsters not to let it stop them from sexual gratification, just don’t tell the other person/people you have the disease. (a felony in most states I believe)
His mom naturally became an enemy of the State of Noah. Until the real world dawned on him
Maybe he was on liberalism
And here comes Geronl from left field.
I'm guessing he responded to your "Schools don't teach that, churches do" comment.
What "church" are you talking about?
Church of Charlie Sheen?¿?
When you need a kook, Ol Geronl won’t let you down.
