Teen who killed family just learned the hard truth about stepmom

A 14-year-old boy has confessed to fatally shooting five family members––including his 6-month-old brother––in their Alabama home Monday night, the local sheriff’s office said.

The Alabama teen accused of killing his five family members in Elkmont on Monday had been exhibiting some worrisome behavior, says his cousin in an interview with WAFF.

On Tuesday, Limestone County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Stephen Young confirmed that the teen was charged with five counts of juvenile murder and is currently being held in a juvenile detention center.

Young said the teen could potentially face adult charges, including capital murder.

According to Young, at 11:00 p.m. on Monday night the unidentified teen called 911 and summoned sheriff’s deputies to his home in Elkmont, Ala.––about 25 miles northwest of Huntsville.

Daisy McCarty is the niece of the boy’s father, John Sisk, who was murdered along with his wife Mary and his three other children, ages 6, 5, and six months. She says her uncle and his wife told her they had been having issues with the teen for nearly a year.

McCarty described the boy as having burned live animals and broken into his school. She didn’t feel like the parents took action.

“I think they didn’t talk to him enough to know what was really going on with him.”

As far as his parents go, Mary Sisk was his stepmom, not his biological mom, a fact McCarty says the boy only learned last week.

“He didn’t know any different of who his mom was,” she explains. “His biological mom was Karina. And they just recently told him, and I think that’s really what triggered the little boy, to be honest with you.”
