.....if he found anyone in the house, he had to kill them.
PALM BAY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- Palm Bay Police have arrested 16-year-old Alan Michael Tanguay for stabbing a woman to death inside her bedroom late Thursday night.
The teen was arrested Monday morning after detectives and SWAT team members searched his home off Vin Rose Circle.
The incident began on Friday when officers found 58-year-old Patricia Kaliszeski murdered inside her home. Officers said the woman sustained multiple stab wounds, including an extremely deep cut across her throat.
Two witnesses came forward who told detectives that Tanguay told them he killed the woman, providing them with details of the murder.
Tanguay told the witnesses that he entered the home sometime between late Thursday night and early Friday morning with the intention to rob the place.
When he entered the home, Tanguay found the victim sitting on her bed. He told the witnesses he found a knife and approached the woman who attempted to defend herself against the attack.
The witnesses told police Tanguay made statements of having killed others and he had a rule that when he found someone inside the house during a burglary, he had to kill them.
"There's no doubt in my mind he would kill again," Chief Bill Berger said after Tanguay confessed to the crime. "This individual is a self proclaimed psychotic killer and what he did to this victim is beyond words. He needs to be locked up for the rest of his life," the chief added.
Police said the teen stole approximately $6 from the victim which he used to purchase beer
