Alabama teen has no reaction to judge sentencing him to life for killing five family members, including baby | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey


The teenager who killed five of his family members reportedly showed no reaction when he was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

18-year-old Mason Sisk was 14 when he gunned down his mother, father, and three siblings on 2 September, 2019, in Elkmont, Alabama.

In April, Sisk was convicted on four counts of capital murder over the shooting deaths of his father John Sisk, 38, mother Mary Sisk, 35, and siblings Kane, six, Rorrie, four, and Colson, six months.

On Thursday (7 September), County Circuit Judge Chad Wise called the crimes ‘ghastly, disturbing, and draped in unmitigated evil’.

“I’ve prosecuted a lot of people in my career,” Limestone County District Attorney Brian C.T. Jones said in a written statement.

”And I can tell you that out of all of those people, only four out of five people scare the hell out of me and he’s at the top of my list.

“Mason Sisk is clearly one of the most dangerous people who will ever be sentenced in Limestone County.

“With this sentence today, Judge Wise has ensured that Mason Sisk will NEVER threaten another child’s safety and wellbeing.”

According to WHNT, Sisk reportedly showed no visible reaction to his sentencing.

Members of the jury were previewed video footage of Sisk admitting to the killings because he was ‘fed up of all the fighting’ in his family, reports Alabama Local.

Douglas Prater, the brother of Mary Sisk, provided a victim’s impact statement in July.

“My family has suffered so much. We haven’t been able to rest for years because of what you did,” he wrote.

“You were accepted into our family. Since you were 4.

“You’re in our family photos and that’s all we have left to remember our family by.

“A whole family has been lost. I lost my sister Mary. She loved you, and you killed her.”

“Mary was about to start a Ph.D. with four kids,” added Mary Sisk’s sister Katie.

“[Our] first time meeting [baby Colson] was in a casket.

“I do not know if I will ever forgive you, but I do grieve the loss of you.

“The child Mason that I knew died the day you murdered them.”

The killer’s attorney, Shay Golden, told WAFF in April: “It’s difficult, he emotes in his way, [and] he doesn’t have anyone really to help him with that… We’re confident we’re solid on the ground for appeal It just feels like this inevitably will have to be tried again.”

Sisk is ineligible for the death penalty because he was aged 14 when he committed the murders.
