What A Psychopath Looks Like

What A Psychopath Looks Like
i never want to hurt my sister i just want to protect her from that's it but if you want to hear uh how she died i don't know was she laying on the ground yes and so you told her to lay down right and she was fully conscious and she was talking to me during it if i tell you this down i mean you're recording this i don't have to say it in court or anything right i i don't know that's for sure i mean i really don't want to talk about this that much eighteen-year-old keith randylich made a short but harrowing call to 9-1-1 on may 22nd 2009. when the dispatcher answered keith said simply come over quick and hung up a few minutes later he called back and this time said get over here before he once again put down the phone keith was urgently calling for help because his little sister lay dying in the basement after calling he stood looking out the windows of the home where he lived with his mother stepfather two brothers and little sister anxiously waiting for the emergency services to arrive when he didn't see any flashing lights he made a third call to call was even more chilling than the previous two when the police arrived at 7 54 pm keith was standing at the front door to greet them he was covered in blood it was all over his pants socks sweatshirt as well as his face and hands when police struggled to find the injured little girl they asked keith where she was and he quickly told them in the basement keith's 16 year old brother had been playing video games upstairs in his room he had no idea that a horrific incident had just occurred in the home that is until he saw the flashing lights from the police cars as they pulled up he then came down and asked

what

was going on officers ordered both boys to get on the ground and they were handcuffed and searched for weapons neither had any on them but keith told the police that it's in the room with her the child four-year-old sabrina clement was found lying on her back in a pool of blood on the basement floor with wounds to her throat the blood saturated into the carpet below her a household steak knife was on the ground lying between her legs and feet covered in

what

appeared to be blood she was wearing a multicolored shirt that was pulled up around her chest with pink shorts and socks the emergency responders checked for any signs of life but they were far too late the house was searched and on the ground level investigators also found seven red stains on the kitchen floor the sink and the counter the spots were already dry they found a wall-mounted telephone covered in blood as well the blood droplets were on the carpet and stairs leading down to the basement the two teen boys keith and his brother were taken into custody to the will county sheriff's office keith was quiet on the ride over not speaking to any of the officers at the station keith's brother was questioned first once officers determined he had no helpful knowledge about what happened he was escorted from the station but now keith was ready to talk and no one was prepared for the chilling and disturbing story he was about to tell due to the unsubstantiated nature of some of the accusations seen in this interrogation portions have been omitted and summarized the following interrogation has been analyzed by a qualified team including a licensed attorney and a licensed clinical psychologist the will county investigation office downtown julia here yes you've been moving from the mokina police department here uh i have to ask you once again did any police officers ever talk to you about dancing that happened today so far ask any questions on what happened okay wait yes i forgot to mention this right when i win the car the first time okay uh not the police officer in that car but another police officer just said what was in your blank was going through your blank mind okay right off the bat keith is cooperative with officers he maintains eye contact and speaks clearly with them his choice to not cuss in front of the officers could be a sign that he is compliant and feels a level of respect towards them but that's that's as much as that's all that that's all that was asked so they didn't answer any particulars or anything like that correct correct okay do you need a water no no bathroom breaks no you're all good yes okay okay very good these initial gentle words and actions are done to build some level of trust and rapport with keith in anticipation of the coming interrogation yeah okay cool we'll be back in one second okay okay although some dismiss body language analysis as pseudoscience it's used by the fbi and cia during interrogations when the cia is interrogating an individual they look for clusters of three or more indicators that occur in either quick succession or all at once these indicators can be signs of discomfort or uncertainty in what the individual is stating rather than indicators of deception it's extremely important to note that you cannot detect deception through body language analysis alone the way he holds his arms around his body like he's hugging himself is a self-soothing technique in a protective position and could be an indication that keith is uncomfortable either with his current situation or with what has just occurred he seems to be unintentionally trying to make himself look small or insignificant this could be a defense mechanism of trying to appear innocent if he is smaller and talks softly it is hard to imagine he could commit a horrific crime the officers leave keith alone in the interrogation room for over 11 minutes the entire time he remains almost totally motionless staring down at the floor or at the red stains covering his pants thank you i know i introduced myself back at the station but if you didn't remember i'm detective wolfman all right and i'm with the mokina police department and if you want to throughout the interview coming jason if you wanted jay that's fine okay you like to be called keith yeah okay this is detective i'm detective trachea i'm with the sheriff's office that's why we came here okay so okay you go to lincoln lake yes okay uh east east okay what do you see here getting ready to graduate was you guys when the school line uh the last day is like june 1st june 1st okay are you doing school i was going gonna graduate i mean i had all a's one c in english but yeah it's cool i i was i was fine you know the officers start out with small talk trying to build a rapport and comfort level with keith these kinds of easy questions can get a suspect to feel more comfortable talking before the officers move on to the more important questions already keith is using past tense when describing how he was going to graduate you taking classes or sports or anything no but i mean yeah i had a future you know i didn't do this for no reason keith immediately acknowledges that he's done something without any denial this shows that he's aware there will be consequences for his actions keith continues speaking in a respectful clear and cooperative manner none of these behaviors typically align with

psychopath

y although it's important to note that some

psychopath

s can present this way at first well we want to we want to talk to you about what occurred yeah okay so i'm but i'm going to read you your constitutional rights before we do that okay okay keith takes responsibility for the incident right away however even though he may appear to be admitting some level of guilt this is technically not an admission because there weren't enough specifics about the crime in his response or in the question he was asked so why don't we just do this keith why don't we just start did you have school today yeah okay i want you to start with how your day went well when you got out of school what you did was just like take us through your job right after i went out of school or before no when you got when you left school you got a school 2 45 or 2 30 right uh went home yeah um the interrogators are establishing a timeline of his day this sort of information is basic background but it starts to help officers develop elements of the alleged crime motive opportunity means access and so on i talked to my mom about moving out she said that i could stay but i mean she said that she had she i just told her that um i said that i wanted to move out and uh to a friend's house but i i really want to do that it's only now that keith starts to show signs that he's uncomfortable before he was able to keep himself still but as soon as he starts talking he begins wringing his hands he also

looks

down at his hands and hesitates all which are signs of anxiety i got a firearm permit last week and i want to buy a firearm and she said i couldn't do that so i was lying and saying i would move to a friend's house if she wouldn't let me buy it keith emphasizes that he lied to his mother and his tone indicates that this is not only something he is aware of but something that is meaningful to him this could be evidence that keith is a rule follower or maybe a bit rigid in his personal concept of right and wrong he's an 18 year old adult so technically he's not lying to his mother when he threatens to move out however he considers this a lie which could be an indication of a very strict adherence to what he believes is right and wrong this will become very important later okay and i want to use this because i'm my little sister keith alleges to the officers that he believed his four-year-old sister was being assaulted by a family member he claims that because he couldn't kill her abuser he killed his half-sister instead in order to protect her the allegations the keith makes have never been proven and the police have not found any evidence of the claims being true i would tell my parents and they would never do anything about it and i would say don't snitch and things like that this is another piece of evidence which indicates that keith has a rigidity and strict adherence to acting morally or what he believes to be correctly so that happens you confronted your parents about multiple occasions for like the past two years and the third call keith made to 9-1-1 that night he told the dispatcher that he had murdered his sister with a knife as soon as he answered the door to the responding emergency services he told officers without hesitation but in a soft voice it was me the blood covering much of his clothing already appeared to be dry by the time the police got to the home i i killed my sister um he had nothing to do with it he was in his room i told him he was watching her because my parents were at his dance he was watching her i said i would watch her so he went up to his room i took her down to my room which is the basement and we just watched splashbob and she said she wanted to paint with me so i took out a knife and it's very disturbing i would never did it but i just want to protect my little sister from my keith is very uncomfortable as he speaks he struggles to describe killing a sister becoming fidgety and continues to wring his hands his voice changes and becomes shaky and takes on an emotional tone though the officers remain quiet and do not indicate any judgment with their body language in the hopes that keith will continue giving them details about the crime he struggles to make eye contact that is until he begins to justify his actions he

looks

clearly at the officer in black when he says he had to do it to protect his sister by making eye contact at this point it could indicate that it matters to keith that the officer understands his reasoning or that this is the part of what he is saying that he feels sure about and therefore can look up when he says it so did you guys ever start painting painting you said she wanted a painting right no i told her that she had to lie down and i would paint with her that's what happened when i took out the knife you have the knife downstairs already where was where was the knife right here you had it inside your hoodie yes how long have you been carrying the knife around like five minutes before i asked let me watch her why did you want how come you asked to to let you watch her so that i could uh kill my sister okay when did when did you start thinking about that when my parents said that i couldn't buy my firearm i knew that i couldn't kill but i never want to hurt my sister i just want to protect it that's it but if you want to hear how she died i don't know was she laying on the ground yes and uh so you told her to lay down right and she was fully conscious and she was talking to me during it if i tell you this down i mean you're recording this i don't have to say it in chord or anything right though his body language the fidgeting shows that he's uncomfortable or anxious about what he's saying keith uses a rather flat and matter-of-fact tone when describing how he killed his sister yet his concern about having to speak publicly in court could be an indication of shame for his actions i don't know that's for sure i mean i really don't want to talk about this that much the autopsy would later reveal that the 40-pound little girl suffered from numerous and massive stab wounds to her neck the disturbing reality of the crime as a stark contrast to the soft tone of voice keith uses to describe it he was upstairs okay he was watching tv with her in the living room first okay then i went in there and said let me watch her so he went upstairs to his room and then i took her downstairs to my room did you have the knife at that point uh here's what happened uh i came out from my room i did the dishes real quick then i just took a knife put in my hoodie right away and i walked right in there and said that so where did you get the knife kitchen cabinet did you have any conversation with her that she was alert she was she was talking to me during it and uh i was just trying to do it as quick as possible okay yeah but she she was in a lot of pain okay could you you know it's tough yeah we'll get you through this could you describe to me how you how you did it let's let's back up a minute could you could you tell me what kind of knife it was just it wasn't a butter knife it had like edges to it like a steak knife type right what kind of handle just brown it was like big would you say how big would you say the handle or the blade the whole the whole night oh the whole knife was maybe like this okay was it one of those knives that you would find in your drawer with all your other forks and knives and spoons it was just like a statement it wasn't anything like a weapon or anything this is a noteworthy phrase since anything can be a weapon depending on how it's used this sounds like some sort of psychological distancing from the means of the crime as well as from the crime itself wooden handle or something i think it would i think it was wooden and then you said you you had her lay down on the ground yeah i told her to do that this was in my room your room which is the basement the basement okay did you tell her that you were gonna do this no i just said i love her and then i took out the knife and she she smiled and i made just a little cut neck i i went through back so i was afraid as she screamed and grabbed me and then she said no stop but i just kept i started doing it again and then she started talking to me and she was still conscious and said why are you killing me so that i started on the right side she was she didn't talk anymore but she was still breathing and had her eyes open so i just ran upstairs and called the police then when i came back down it looked like she died now he becomes very emotional and his attention darts around as he struggles to make eye contact which is an indication that he may feel remorse it could also show that he is shameful about what he's done or fears judgment from the officers the officers maintain their calm and understanding tone with a suspect who is timid like keith appears to be this is the approach most officers will use as being aggressive and confrontational will likely make him shut down and less likely to talk when you ran upstairs did you tell did you find your brother did your brother find you no he was in his room the living room i mean we had a family phone in the kitchen so i went to the family room i dialed the police i just said come here i hung it up went back downstairs checked on her and i went back up i didn't hear any police cars so i called again i said like come here again i hung it up then i like looked outside for more i was like waiting so then the police called back so i picked it up i said there was a murder and i was just explaining to them that i did it where did you put today well it was right next to her you just dropped it yes okay did where were you when the police came i was waiting for them at the front door because the lady said do you see the police outside i said no so i hung up the phone and i walked to the front door and the police ran the doorbell i opened the door and then uh they just said like get down they told my brother who came downstairs because he saw the police from his room he said what are they doing here they told him to get down too and my brother was in shock because he said why did what did you do to my baby how do you think she knew what happened he saw the blood and at first he didn't know it was my sister but like someone one of the police officers said like who died i said my sister and i said he said where's she at i said the basement then got hysterical and he said what did you do to my sister or something so what was your sister what was she what would she wear what she wear um just a t-shirt pants i don't i can't really tell you the color or anything i wasn't paying attention after she died though i i gave her a kiss and i said i'm sorry i had to do this but i just i really love my sister when did you do when did you do that if you came back downstairs first time yeah i only went down one more time like right after i called the police i went back down and that's when i did that it looked like she was dead psychopaths sometimes demonstrate this bizarre dichotomy where they will portray an image of themselves where they have the utmost morals and values and enjoy feeling superior to others as a result but then they will commit horrific acts and then justify those acts keith has clearly justified his actions by saying that it was to protect his sister and that he apologized to her could you just describe for me how you did it i mean like when you say the side i guess yeah i mean were you behind her you know no i was in front of her like she was lying down like right there i just was nailing and i just did it like like that just to her neck's like right here in here did you need him on top of her on the side right in front of her right in front of her okay so at first she thought you guys were playing around or yeah yeah i told her that we were gonna paint keith doesn't appear to be distancing himself from the crime here he even shows on his own body where he cut his sister's neck the only real indication that he's uncomfortable is his nervous laugh right when my mom told me that she wouldn't let me use any of my money to buy a firearm and that would have been when you got first got home from school around three o'clock three thirty like three yeah two the officers are trying to establish if the crime was premeditated notice that keith holds his chin as though he's deep in thought not only does he appear comfortable answering this question but he also wants to get the exact time correct that's her name sabrina up until today when you had the discussion with your mom about the firearm yeah you stated that you wanted the firearm to right to shoot and that was it this is the first time keith mentioned his sister's name out loud he may have been referring to her as my sister prior to this as a way to assert his relationship to her if keith is a psychopath this phrasing could be an indication that he may have felt like he had ownership over sabrina which could work to justify his actions to himself in contrast he could also have been distancing himself from her and the crime by not actually using her name until now after he's discussed killing her once he's used her name you will see that he's more comfortable using it going forward yeah that was all i would have used it for so you never thought about killing sabrina up until that point in time never it wasn't until your mom said no you're not getting a firearm she said i had to like go out and work for it but he was he was tormenting my sister like worse and worse every day why did you choose her neck area i uh i thought it'd be the fastest way to kill sabrina just as quick as possible without as much pain did you ever see this anywhere i mean no i don't think i mean i've heard about it like there's like people who strangle people i don't want to do that to her because but i mean she wasn't an extreme amount of pain though i'll tell you that she was screaming and crying and trying to fight me but she can't fight back so did you ever think at some point in time you you could have stopped i i did right after i cut her neck the first time i made a little cut and then i stopped i was she grabbed her duck but i i just kept going did you ever do any any research or looking into not just about doing anything like this before on on the internet or any books or anything no did you talk to my parents at all okay you all right yeah also i just like to say real quick that my my mom and my stepfather are pretty good people keith's comments about his parents are a form of deflection but it seems out of place since he's accepting blame for the crime yeah i don't know if you want to drink it or not but it's just water all right yeah i know all right thanks all right hang in there we'll get you through this all right all right the interrogators left the room leaving keith alone for about 20 minutes he remains almost motionless the entire time once again holding himself with his arms around his waist the fact that an officer returns with water for keith is interesting because he previously declined any there may be a sense of shock and pity on the part of the investigators the friendly gesture could also help to build rapport and trust with keith after the officer leaves the room again keith will be left sitting by himself for another 50 minutes this is interesting because often the police do not leave suspects sitting by themselves for long periods of time unless there is a purpose to it such as their own need to regain emotional composure to verify the suspect's statements or as a tactic to unsettle the suspect or give them time to reflect on their own answers to questions often interrogators do not want to give the suspect too much time on their own because they may use it to concoct a story that they will then stick to but in keith's case he appeared very truthful forthcoming and fully cooperative during the interrogation so far though he may have paused at times he answered every question he was asked once again keith remains almost motionless for nearly an hour barely shifting in a seat how you doing how are you the interrogators return in order to clarify some of the details with keith they focus on trying to understand his motive and clarify his confession though a motive isn't something that must be proven in court often a jury can struggle to imagine a suspect willingly choosing to kill someone as close to them as a sibling knowing keith's motive will help a jury to imagine the reason the crime occurred keith just want to go over a few more things with you ask you a few more questions uh we have interviewed and spoke to some other family members so we have a better idea of what was going on yeah within your family so keith begins to give the interrogators more details about the alleged assaults which he claims sabrina suffered he detailed specific instances where he began to believe that sabrina was suffering once again his strict personal moral code comes into play here he appears to felt compelled to do what he believed was right even if it meant taking such extreme measures as to kill his own sister but i think he doesn't consider his actions as extreme he seems to have a laser focus on just making things right that he is completely blinded to the fact that he is committing a murder he seems to severely lack common sense in seeing how horrific his solution is keith reiterates his claim that he was trying to protect his sister by killing her this is crucial as it appears to be his motive or at least the motive he's stating whether or not that is actually the case is another thing at this point keith has said twice that he is 99 sure an assault had occurred but as he tells the story for the second time he also clarifies that he isn't completely sure that they did take place this is of course a contradiction it appears that he believes his statement but he waivers when he admits he doesn't have proof did you consider sabrina your sister and your blood absolutely you never wanted to disclose her from the family never you ever have any ill feelings or discontent about her being born because it was with a different father i don't know why my mom said that okay the investigators are not necessarily discounting keith's motive of protecting the victim from abuse but from a rational perspective it does not make sense they are fishing for other motives more logical ones and might help make sense of the crime the interrogators offer him other motives ones that they seem to think make more sense such as resenting his little sister being born but keith is adam meant that this is untrue on the surface it appears that keith had genuine familial affection for his little sister which makes this all the more unusual in terms of motive sabrina was always part of my family the problem i have yeah that we both have is how how do you how how could you be protecting sabrina by doing what happened tonight yeah doing that i mean it's i'm not i'm not proud of that there's no excuse for it i knew what i was doing it was premeditated you could say uh looking back i just want to stop you real quick when you say premeditated what do you mean it it can be pre-meditated well like the language definition thought out i thought about it like at 3 30 i did it like a couple hours later so it was not time for her insanity the fact that keith speaks clearly and with understanding about his crime being premeditated and that the act was not the result of temporary insanity show that he is intelligent and indicates that he likely did some research before the murder looking into what his consequences would be no but what would put you in this what at 3 30 made you start thinking that you wanted to do this to her i mean okay something must have happened and that's what we're trying to figure out because keith you're not telling us the whole story all right i told you what happened my mom said i can't hold true she said i couldn't buy a firearm i wasn't going to get this firearm and just killed right away i was never going to do that that was just an option i wanted to have in case anything ever ever happened where he got out of control with my sister but she said there's no way you're getting this and bigger than me he's taller than me he's a lot stronger than me i would rather have got crying all the way than my sister to be honest but you didn't he got rid of your only sister right and she was the person i loved the most in that family she was my best friend why did you love her the most okay uh it's not that i ain't like specifically love my parents it's just that uh me and her were always close we were we spent more time together than anyone else well i mean she spent the most time with her mom but i spent the most time with her than anyone else the interrogators begin putting more pressure on keith in implying that he is intentionally lying to them or not being honest to himself about his motive because the motive doesn't make sense the investigators feel they must probe for a motive that does the problem is that it looks like both are discounting the possibility that keith's reasons may be internally consistent to himself even if externally they are wholly unreasonable and illogical you seem like a good kid and i believe in a lot of what you're saying yeah but i'm not believing everything okay i mean if you have something let me clarify i will well here's what i don't want to happen i mean obviously there's a death here yeah your sister is gone i know tomorrow or whenever we go through a process where we just determine the cause of death and when we do that it's a full examination of a body yeah it's an autopsy absolutely yeah and my concern is that are we going to discover any anything else that could have happened yeah where maybe it may have happened and sabrina said no and that's why this whole thing happened because sabrina is growing up now wait she said no to what that's why i'm just asking i mean did anything take place where sabrina was fighting with you and said no absolutely not she was completely innocent i saw her i we were watching spongebob she said let's paint so i just said lie down and that's when that she she's not to blame for this i wouldn't say she's to blame for this i mean that's not where what i'm what i'm trying to figure out you're saying like did she like instigate me or anything did she instigate you or did you maybe get excited or get aggressive to her or anything no no i was absolutely not like that sir have you ever no i like i said i i think at least there was that one time for sure but i i was i'm not like a child i don't like little children even when the interrogator is probing to see if keith ever had an inappropriate relationship with his little sister it takes him a while to understand the implication he still refers to the officer as sir remaining both calm and respectful geez he made numerous statements of how beautiful sabrina was and yeah how much you loved her how could you hurt something so beautiful what would what could make you do that you can see that one of the interrogators body language has changed he's no longer sitting back with his chest open but is hunched over and he frequently rubs his forehead and face this could be because he's feeling frustrated that he can't seem to get the answers he's looking for from keith the officer is no longer trying to establish a rapport or sense of trust with keith but his tone remains calm despite outward signs that he may be frustrated abuse of her was getting worse and worse like i said my original plan was if clinton got offline i would just take care of him and then i'd be here just about a 14 year old instead of a four-year-old i didn't want to do that but keith you know right from wrong i yes i do you're you're a man right yeah the interrogators have consistently been implying or outright saying that there is something more here a missing piece that can potentially explain more about what compelled keith to commit this murder okay what would you do you're so mad it for what he's doing you turn around and do something worse than what you was doing all right if it was sexual i disagree with that i'm not saying but what you did tonight i mean it's well i had it took about four minutes but she's not in any more pain anymore she's uh she's not like every day having someone torment her he seems to have rationalized that killing her in four minutes is better than her continuing to suffer this is another example of how he has very rigid thinking and very strict ideals of right and wrong did you ever talk to a school counselor or going to the police and telling them what was going on at home or i mean there's options of when there's abuse taking place right i mean there's department of dcfs department child family services i mean there's did you ever think about any of those things i've told my parents and they just like clapped at me and they said don't be a snitch and whatever uh i didn't have the dcfs number keith deflects here once again rationalizing his decision i'm not a parent so i really wouldn't know about that stuff i mean i've heard about it but i mean it i didn't remember any of it at that time i just want to make sure that we're not leaving anything out because you know like i said before we want to put this behind us and move on okay deal with what we have to deal with yeah but i'm concerned that maybe there is still more that's not that we haven't talked about and we haven't figured out i just want to make sure that i mean and if you're if you're if you feel fine and you don't want to talk about it that's none of my business then none of our business but i think there's more there that we need to get out and clarify because i can tell just i mean i don't know you i just met you today but you just don't seem like you're comfortable like there's something more that maybe you don't trust us to talk about yet i completely trust you i trust the police that's why i called them i have nothing to hide i didn't change my clothes and hide them i didn't frame anyone i admitted it right away keith is a complex case he's been forthcoming and cooperative the entire interrogation and even before when he immediately called the police after killing his sister but it could be said that he likely has anti-social personality disorder with narcissistic features since he felt he had the right to make such a horrible decision and in the life of his sister however there are really no observable indications of significant antisocial or narcissistic traits during his interrogation there are no indications of a god complex nor any overt evidence that he has a lack of remorse keith doesn't appear to be enjoying the attention he's receiving from committing the murder and being involved in the interrogation as many psychopaths do i'm just trying to get this you know over with whatever my punishment is it is i'm fine with that i'm nothing to hide i mean if you have any more questions i mean i'll discuss them with you but i'm not hiding anything okay was there anything uh that you were afraid sabrina could could say about you were you threatened by anything i told you i had no relationship with my little sister here he reverts back to referring to sabrina as my little sister perhaps feeling the need to once again distance himself from using her name as you'll see the interrogators are still fishing for a motive that makes more sense to them they cannot seem to accept his irrational explanation that killing his sister was a way to protect her i'm not talking i'm saying did she know about something or oh no no she did not only thing was when i pulled off the knife i i knew right then i had to kill my little sister because she's she saw it and there was no going back at that point keith mentioned that once sabrina saw the knife he knew there was no turning back that he had to kill her because she knew his intentions at that point this is strange because he turned himself in and confessed to her murder so why would he care that she would have maybe seen the knife and suspected he planned to harm her me and my mom had a fight about the firearm thing so she she would not leave me and trump she wasn't just friendly towards me like she brought me dinner but she she wouldn't leave me in charge like with sabrina at that time how'd that make you feel uh we talked about she asked me originally last week she's like you want to babysit for 6.50 sabrina i said yeah i'll babysitter for that day then we got in a fight and then um she just said it's gonna be sick that that had nothing to do with why i did what i did though the only reason she didn't let me babysit was because me and her had a fight and how did that make you feel that you weren't babysitting uh well i mean okay you have to understand this so she was in my room before that though like before they left when she was getting them she guys taco bell before they left she was in my room like playing with me and stuff so it wasn't like i couldn't see her you know my mom knew that we were playing together and whatnot so but you first first earlier you said you first thought about doing this at 3 30 yeah around there yeah so then she came down into your room yeah after that and i played with her yeah the implied motive that maybe keith killed sabrina to get a sort of revenge against his mother for not being allowed to babysit is a weak motive but it's one that fits better into the police's understanding of a motive that was around maybe four five four to five like four thirty to five something so if you're already at 3 30 had it set in your mind that you were going to do this how come you didn't do it at that time because my mom was coming home and my stepfather was still home so i didn't want one of them to stop me before i finished it i knew that once i started like brenda would be horribly disfigured and have like breathing problems the rest of her life if she didn't like die at that time so it's clear that keith put some thought into the crime and his possible outcomes were you worried about being home no uh he did i know he'd just go in his room i mean he had nothing to do with it but why did you think he would just go in his room he listens to music that's his thing he didn't know anything though you know what what would you say if he told us otherwise you could ask him but he's not i don't know what he would say because all i know is the truth he didn't know i had a knife right here when i asked him to let me watch brina you could interview him i never talked to him i think i'm gonna cut green his throat today i never said that to him or anyone i didn't even know about it till it's 3 30 so before 3 30 today it never crossed your mind that you wanted to end sabrina's life harm her in any way i was thinking if i had to do a tiny one i would have to do it why do it at all because uh could not be stopped his parent his mom spoils him and he has a sugar problem where he can't control himself when he has any amount of sugar wouldn't you worry about you know he's getting bigger stronger yeah well he was bigger and stronger than me i wasn't worried about it it's just that's why i didn't attack him with a knife because i couldn't he he's a lot stronger than me keith appears to not want to risk himself because he says that the alleged assailant is bigger and stronger than him which is why he needed the firearm it could also mean that he knew the person would be able to retaliate against him if he did anything keith was able to logically understand this and therefore referring from targeting the alleged assailant in order to actually protect himself from harm however he was willing to sacrifice sabrina because he still felt compelled to right the wrong and you knew your parents were going out this evening so that's yes well okay like i said i knew that they were going out but i only thought of that plan at 3 30. did you ever have anybody try to take advantage of you at any time when you were little oh okay no sorry i just yeah make sure okay i can't i can't crawl into your mind he can't crawl into your mind but we we're we just want to make sure that we get it you know that we can understand sure yeah we have a job to do i know i know and you know there's going to be a lot of questions asked of us right so yeah you got to be able to bring closure to your brothers to your loved dad i understand you know what closure means comfort condolences reason try to help them understand why yes well i didn't want to do it but the main reason why i did it was just because it was getting just too he was getting worse and worse as the days went by how do you feel now that you did it and it's over i feel that if i could go back i would try and do it to not hurt maybe i would get a job and work so i could just take her instead of my little sister i mean that was it was a waste of life if i could went to the police and proved anything about christian i definitely would have did that but i didn't have any proof pretty much cover everything then yeah okay yes yes sir yeah i just feel like when i'm talking to you you don't want to like look at me like um do you know what sometimes that means when people don't want to look at you look at you when they're talking to you right sometimes it means that they're not telling you everything i mean i just want to get out of these pants so you know okay we'll get you out of those well you want more water uh no i mean well all right yes please yes i'll get you another cup so am i staying here tonight and well we're gonna take a quick break real quick and we'll be back in okay give you some water we're gonna work on the close thing yeah and we're gonna get you out of those yeah anything else you need i don't know just to so close i'll get you some water an officer and an evidence technician will now come to photograph keith and collect all of his clothing this is standard procedure the soiled evidence will be placed in paper bags prior to analysis all right keith i've got some clothing for you to wear okay because we need to take the clothing that you have on okay uh we're gonna do it on the offshoot of camera so you because you have to strip down with everything that you have and give it to our evidence technician and then we'll go ahead and we got close for you to put on okay throughout the interrogation keith maintains his story without deviating nothing about this case makes sense though in the final disposition it appears that the story keith tells is the truthful one the next day keith's mother and his stepfather were brought in for a short interview at 9 10 p.m the previous night while keith was in custody they along with their youngest son had returned to their home to find a crime scene the investigators at the scene told them what had happened and that both of their other sons were in custody during their brief interview keith's stepfather told police that he had been acting strangely lately but that he was a quiet kid who mostly kept to himself and didn't have a lot of friends however he was certain everyone got along okay in the family except for a few normal arguments in contrast keith's mother and clement had a very different story to tell keep in mind that they just learned the day before that their young daughter had been killed by their son what she said was revealed in police documents which state that this is not verbatim she claimed that keith actually didn't get along with or like anyone in the family except for sabrina and was often ungrateful disrespectful and said hurtful things to his family members there were even a few incidents of physical violence between keith and his mother and sometimes with one of his brothers before they left the sheriff's office she also made it clear that she never saw any evidence of abuse or assault after the interrogation investigators took a closer look at the home they found what was described as disturbing writings in journal entries created by a family member most appeared to be stories or song lyrics and eerily some reference to violent imagery in a child being killed by having their throat cut one read i left another body in the street choked her clothes blood soaked and the attack was unprovoked i'm the reincarnation of elizabeth bathory there ain't one inch in my house that ain't gory mutilating and bathing in the blood of female preteens and babies the blood of the innocent shall grant me immortality while another read i enjoy it when someone i'm about to kill screams and cries the police concluded that keith hadn't written the notes nor had the family member who keith accused of assaulting sabrina the family member who wrote the journal entry said they were lyrics to eminem songs and it was determined that they were unrelated to the crime keith was eventually determined to be psychologically fit to stand trial the psychiatrist found in their report that keith has a personality disorder but it didn't specify what disorder keith ended up entering a blind plea of guilty to first-degree murder for the slaying of his four-year-old sister sabrina clement a blind plea is where a suspect pleads guilty in court before any agreement is in place it's called a blind plea because there are no guarantees and the sentence is all up to the judge in 2011 none of keith's family members or friends attended his sentencing though he was just as soft-spoken as he had been earlier keith spoke directly to the judge and once again kept to the same story that he told officers during his interrogation he also claimed that the state attorney shouldn't quote even be allowed to judge him because they didn't grow up in a situation similar to his own the prosecutors had requested a life sentence or a 60 to 100-year term that way keith would be in prison for the rest of his life however in april 2011 he was sentenced to 40 years of straight time in prison meaning that he must serve the 40 years and will not receive a reduction in his sentence for good behavior keith randallich is currently at the pontiac correctional center his projected parole date is may 21st 2049. he will be 58 years old by the time he is released
