A SON wrote chilling details in a notebook about how he was planning to chop up and kill his parents, flush chunks down the toilet and melt their fingerprints.
Joel Guy Jr, 32, allegedly butchered his mom Lisa, 55, and dad Joel Snr, 61, to get his hands on $500,000 life insurance – and he detailed his murderous plot in a notebook.
Before the alleged heinous crime, Guy Jr. meticulously plotted his murderous moves in a notebook, detailing the steps he would take.
Bullet points in the notebook read: "Douse killing rooms (kitchen?) with bleach.
"Flush chunks down toilet, not garbage disposal … don’t have to get rid of body if no forensic evidence.
"Turn heaters up to 90C to melt fingerprints and dry everything."
The notebook was reportedly found in a backpack in the guest bedroom where he had been staying, a court heard.
Not only did the notes explain how Guy Jr. was allegedly going to kill the couple, but also how he was going to cover up and eradicate any evidence.
It read: "Kill him with the knife, clean up mess from him before she gets home.
"Kill her with knife…place her in shower. Turn on hot water and point at her to get rid of forensics."
The notes then detail how Guy Jr. allegedly sought to place his father’s body in a plastic bin and use it to haul him into the shower alongside his mother’s body to wash away evidence.
The notebook then continues: "Cut off his arm and plant flesh under her fingernails.
"Use sodium hydroxide to destroy his soft tissue and soften bones for transport. Baste once every hour to accelerate."
The notes then even show the 32-year-old's alleged attempt to create an alibi for himself, writing: "Set her phone to send me a text message late Sunday to prove that I was in BR (Baton Rogue) and she was alive."
Another page in the notebook shows details of the "assets" which Lisa Guy owned, including a $500,000 life insurance policy that lists Guy Jr as a beneficiary.
The page said: "$500,000 would be all mine."
"With him missing/dead, I get the whole thing."
The layabout student is accused of murdering his parents when he returned home to Knoxville, Tennessee, for the Thanksgiving holiday in 2016.
Prosecutors say he knifed his dad 40 times while his mom was out grocery shopping, and when she returned he stabbed her 30 times.
Prosecutor Leslie Nassos described in horrifying detail how he separated their limbs from their torsos, and snapped Lisa's skull from the topmost vertebra in her spine.
He then boiled her head in a pot on the stove while other parts were soaked in acid in blue plastic containers, the court heard.
Knox County Sheriff’s Office detective Jeremy McCord described the carnage he found inside the Guys’ home as “the most horrific thing I’ve ever encountered in police work – in my life.”
He said he could feel heat emanating from the home and chemicals permeating the air as he walked into the garage.
Inside, there was blood all down the hallway on the walls and floor, with scissors and clothing that appeared to have been cut from a body, and a large knife.
His parents, who worked as engineers, were supporting Guy Jr. while he was studying to be a plastic surgeon in Baton Rouge, and had been in college for nine years.
His parents were set to retire and stop supporting him.
Lisa's colleagues raised the alarm when she failed to show up for work the following Monday.
By then Joel Jr. had gone back to his apartment in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
He is said to have initially confessed to the killings, but now denies murder.
Last week Guy bizarrely pleaded with the court to execute him if he is found guilty.
But prosecutors said they are not seeking the death penalty in his case.
The trial continues.
