Grant Amato Allegedly Murdered Parents and Brother After Stealing $200K to send to a Bulgarian webcam girl.
A male nurse murdered his parents and brother after stealing $200,000 to send to a Bulgarian webcam girl, it was reported.
Grant Amato, 29, has been charged with shooting his mother Margaret Amato, 61 and 59-year-old dad Chad Amato, 59 along with his brother.
Police found the bodies in the garage, kitchen and in an office in the property on Friday and Amato was arrested on Monday.
He appeared in court on Monday and is currently being held in custody.
Alleged porn addict Amato was kicked out of his parents’ home a day before their deaths when they discovered he had broken his promise about cutting off contact with the woman, Fox32 reported.
Detectives said he admitted that he signed a contract with his parents in which he said he would adhere to certain rules.
They also told him to undergo a 60-day internet sex and sex addiction rehabilitation program.
But his father caught him communicating with her via Twitter, investigators said.
They told sheriff’s deputies their son was suffering from depression, had access to firearms and they were “100 percent convinced he will try to harm himself”, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
The girlfriend of Cody Amato told investigators that Grant had stolen around $50,500 from his brother and sold his guns without permission.
Another one brother Jason Amato, said Grant had stolen another $150,000 from their father and took out a loan against the value of their parents’ home.
Jason also told police that his brother spent $150,000 on the online website Camgirls.com in just three months.
“There’s some issues there, I think we have some mental health issues,” said Jeffery Dowdy, Amato’s lawyer.
“A few months ago…he had checked himself into an internet sex addiction facility in Fort Lauderdale. He had walked off there.”
In June, Amato was fired from his nursing job and arrested for stealing drugs and dropped out of graduate school.
