Yeah, that was my first thought. Doesn’t this kid have parents? How easy is it for a 16-yr-old boy to hide his knife collection, absinthe, and S&M gay porn lifestyle from his folks? Scary...

Just guessing, but one of the factors that leads people to become gay is the absence of a father or male authority figure. What causes people to become gay is much disputed, but this is pretty certainly one factor.

So, probably a welfare mother, no father, and maybe already out of the house earning his living at 16. Or a mother who doesn't much care what he does.

Or, I guess these parents never checked the kid's computer use. It seems so many of these sex related murders (and recently the girl who hung herself because nude pics she sent on her cell phone ended up on the Internet), are connected with Internet and cell phone-texting use. Are all parents ignoring what their kids are doing with today's technology devices?

As to the journalist - it is frightening to discover how many seemingly "normal" people are out there prowling for weird sex thrills behind their doors. But he contacted his murderer for the specific reason of violent sex, and that is what he got.

The families of these two must be hurting, and that is a real shame. But, when you have kids, you must be a good parent and not let your children have complete freedom from your watching eye.

It would not surprise me if his parent(s) were gang members. I doubt he grew up in an Archie Bunker type household.
