World shocked as Texas teen brutally kills entire family

The shocking incident happened in the small town of Nash, where police responded to a report of a man threatening to harm his family and harm himself. Cesar Olald was found barricaded inside the home, and officers later found the bodies of his family members in the bathroom. According to an affidavit, Olalde claimed he killed his family because he believed they were scavengers and were planning to eat him.
The affidavit revealed a horrific scene as the victims were shot in different areas of the house and dragged into the bathroom. Multiple spent cartridge casings and blood spatters were found throughout the residence. Lisbet Olalde’s older sister, a co-worker, went home when she failed to show up for work. He was confronted by Cesar Olalde, who pointed a firearm at him. The co-worker later informed the police that Olalde confessed to killing his family because he believed they were fakes.
