American homicide, the older of two boys who stabbed two Dartmouth professors to death, Half and Susanne Zantop, found in their home on 1/27/2001 at 6:30 PM by another couple who had been invited over for dinner. Robert Tulloch and James Parker were later identified by fingerprints and footprints in and outside the house. They both fled, buying bus tickets to "somewhere warm." They were eventually caught in Spiceland, Indiana at a truck stop at c. 3:45 AM on 2/19/2001.
Parker is a juvenile and copped a plea bargain in exchange for evidence; he had agreed to testify at the trial of Tullock, which begins in April 2002. Both boys will be tried in adult court even though Parker was only 16 at the time of the murder. No motive has been determined for the crime. The two boys had no connection to the victims but did have a history of burglaries. The court case ended on 4/04/2002 with both youths sentenced to long prison terms, bringing an end to a case shocking in its savagery and senselessness.
