    John (38) and Mary Sisk (35) and their 3 children were murdered by John's 14 year old son

    His 6-month-old brother was the youngest victim of a teenage boy who admitted killing his father, stepmother and two other siblings at the family's Alabama home, authorities said Tuesday.

    The suspect, who is 14 and is not being identified, is being held in a juvenile detention facility on five counts of murder, and he could be charged as an adult, according to the Limestone County Sheriff's Office.

    The victims were identified by officials Tuesday as the teen's father, John Sisk, 38; his stepmother, Mary Sisk, 35; his 6-month-old brother, his 5-year-old sister and his 6-year-old brother. The names of the siblings have not been released.

    "We are facing a tragedy that we aren't used to in Limestone County," said a statement from the sheriff's office. "This will have a ripple effect among the family, the community and county. It affects us all."

    The suspect called 911 at about 11 p.m. Monday to report the shooting at his home in Elkmont, on the northern Alabama border. The teen met deputies in his driveway and told them he was downstairs when he heard shots fired upstairs, Limestone County Sheriff's Office Lt. Stephen Young said during a news conference Tuesday.

    But his story was full of inconsistencies, so he was brought to the sheriff's office to be interviewed, at which point he admitted to shooting his entire family, Young said.

    He later led investigators to where he said he tossed the handgun on the side of the road near the house. Young said the gun was in the home illegally.

    The teen's cousin, Daisy McCarty, who is John Sisk's niece, told NBC affiliate WAFF that the 14-year-old was a well-behaved boy until he started acting out about a year ago. She said he had broken into and vandalized his school and was in the habit of burning animals alive.

    She said Mary and John told him last week that Mary was not his biological mother.

    ?I think he?s been having problems. ... That?s what bothers me because they?d seen it but they didn?t do anything about it really," McCarty said. "I think they didn?t talk to him enough to know what was really going on with him."

    Mary Sisk, who was a special education teacher at Mountain Gap Middle School in Huntsville, wrote in her faculty profile that she was "happily married with a great husband and four beautiful children." She said she had been working in education for a decade.

    Welp this kid was a budding psychopath. I don’t know what the cousin is talking about, no amount of “talking” to this kid would have helped. He shot a six month old baby!

    The attorney for the Limestone County teen accused of killing his family in 2019 is asking for a speedy trial.

    That’s according to a motion filed today.

    Mason Sisk was charged as an adult in the shooting deaths of his father, stepmother, and three siblings at their home in Elkmont in 2019.

    Investigators say Sisk shot all five family members in the head, including his 6-month-old brother.

    A judge said Sisk can not be disciplined in Juvenile Court.

    The case was sent to a grand jury.

    Yeah, he changed his major - he was on track to be a serial killer but switched to mass murder instead. This one should probably never get out of prison.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
