Son Charged with Homicide in Shooting Deaths of Parents in Columbia County
Updated at 02:11PM, January 31, 2020

ORANGE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A mother and father were found shot to death inside their home in Columbia County.

Police say their shooter is the couple's 18-year-old adopted son, who called police afterward.

Shock and grief rocked a rural community near Millville after a husband and wife were found shot to death in their home.

The person charged with their murders, the couple's adoptive son, 18-year-old Carl Kressler.

Troopers were sent to the home on Hartman Hollow Road around 10 p.m. Thursday.

Court papers say Carl called 911 and told dispatchers that his parents were “gone."

Police say Carl finally admitted to shooting his parents because, in part, they made disparaging remarks about their decision to adopt him.

In court papers filed at the magistrate's office in Millville, Carl told investigators he tried to make it look like his parents were shot and killed during a burglary.

Police say Carl had disabled the security system and hid some of his mother’s jewelry.

After the shooting, police say carl left to toss the gun off a bridge into a river then returned home and made that call to police.


Cousin: Columbia County homicide victims "were wonderful people, hardworking"

ORANGE TWP., COLUMBIA CO. (WOLF) — The quiet, small town of Orange Township is eerie today.

A population of just 1200- devastated.

All because of a horrific double murder inside a Hartman Hollow Road home Thursday night.

Police say the gunman is 18-year-old Carl Kressler- in prison for allegedly shooting his parents- Flint and Sharon Kressler- in the head.

"(Carl was) always in trouble... Flint and Sharon did everything for him and it wasn't good enough," Sharon's cousin Kim Moccia said.

Moccia is still in shock, outside the scene Friday to take care of Sharon's mother- almost 90 years old- who lives across the street from the house her daughter was killed in.

Other family members Friday tell us Carl was adopted as a baby- and over the years was getting into trouble.

"He just didn't follow the rules," Moccia said. "Like just bad things, bad things. He just didn't follow the rules and listen."

State police say once Kressler shot and killed his parents- he called the police and tried to stage the crime scene like a robbery. Then when police interviewed him- he admitted to the killings.

Police even said Carl changed his clothes and texted his mother's phone to make it seem like he wasn't involved. He also confessed to throwing the gun in a river, according to a criminal complaint.

This tight knit community is now remembering Flint Kressler- 51 and Sharon- 60.

"They were wonderful people," Moccia said. "Hardworking. They would do anything for anyone."


Flint Kressler, age 51
