30-Year-Old Rich Kid Shoots His Father In the Head for Lowering His Allowance

A wealthy hedge-fund chief was shot and killed by his 30-year-old spoiled brat adult son after he threatened to cut his allowance by a $100 a week and stop paying his rent! Check out the details below…

Spoiled manchild Thomas Gilbert Jr., 30, flew into a murderous rage when he confronted his fed-up dad, Thomas Gilbert Sr., 70, over the downsizing of financial support, police said.

“He was on a stipend from the family. Looks like he was in debt,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said of the accused killer.

The freeloading son, a Princeton grad, shot his father once in the head with a .40-caliber Glock 22 handgun Sunday afternoon inside his parents’ multimillion-dollar Beekman Place apartment, police said.


He then callously staged the murder scene to appear as if it was a suicide, placing the gun on his father’s chest and putting the dead man’s left hand over it, Boyce said.

Gilberts parents recently told him they were cutting his $400 a week allowance by $100, a police source said. His parents also informed him they would no longer pay the rent on his apartment in a Chelsea building, where rents average $3,100 a month, the source said.

The mooching son showed up at his parents’ apartment about 3 p.m. Sunday and asked if he could have a word alone with his father, Boyce said.

His mother, Shelley, obliged and went out to buy her son a sandwich.

“About 15 minutes after that she had a bad feeling and decided to return,” Boyce said.

After finding her husband’s body, Shelley Gilbert called 911.

Following Gilbert’s arrest at 10:30 p.m. Sunday, police recovered two .40-caliber magazine clips matching the murder weapon, numerous loose rounds and a manufacturer’s box for the Glock 22.

The killer son refused to talk to detectives and requested a lawyer. – Via NYDailyNews
