I vote this guy the biggest loser of the year so far (and if you read JT regularly there are quite a few of them). Killing his father and robbing 50.000 this has got to be a new low!!!

Obviously didn't love his father, only loved himself. So common.

Now, did he murder him for A reason and then rob him after the fact, or was it all for a measly $500?
