** "''Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks, and when she saw what she had done she gave her father forty-one''"
* In [[http://www.ghostinmysuitcase.com/places/savannah/index.htm Savannah, Georgia]], a girl named Lottie was raised by her aunt Louisa and her uncle Aaron and got along well with Anna, her stepmom's sister. [[YourCheatingHeart She once caught Anna kissing her uncle/dad]]; after an HeroicBSOD, she killed Anna by lacing her tea with poison to "protect" her family. It turned out that Anna was her long-lost mother, [[TeenPregnancy who had her as a teen]] [[GiveHimANormalLife and left her in the care of her sister and brother-in-law]], [[SecretKeeper asking them to not tell the truth]]. [[IronicHell Whoops.]] (Lotti was acquitted, but [[GoMadFromTheRevelation soon she totally lost it]] and was commited to an asylum for the rest of her life. Her ghost supposedly haunts the house she lived in, now a hostel named Forsyth Park, once featured in ''Haunted Houses''.)

* A rather infamous one in Amityville, Long Island, New York. Ronnie [=DeFeo=] shot and killed his parents and four siblings in bed November 13, 1974 at 3:15 am. The hauntings the book and movies based off of the book implies aren't real, though, just the crime.

* One that changed (a small part of) history: One fine summer evening in Nepal, Crown Prince Dipendra walked into a family dinner and shot the whole place up, killing his father, King Birendra, his mother, Queen Aishwarya, two of his siblings, and five other relatives, before killing himself (although he would then take a few days to die). As a result, his uncle Gyanendra took the throne. Through a long series of events, this massacre leads to the abolition of the Nepalese monarchy in 2008.
** That's the official version, anyway. Many in Nepal accused Gyanendra of being an EvilUncle who arranged the massacre (in collaboration with Chinese spies) and framing Dipendra, [[KlingonPromotion so that he could have the throne for himself.]] Fueling this theory is the claim that the right-handed Dipendra was "shot himself" in the left side of his head, which is a relatively unlikely suicide.

** Treated in a bizarrely humorous way after Wesley shoots his father because his father was threatening Fred [[spoiler: though it was actually a robot shapeshifter. Wesley was sure it was him, though, and that he would really do such a thing]]. Angel tries to comfort him, but [[StopHelpingMe it doesn't help]]. The characters bring up both Angelus killing his parents as a vampire and Spike killing his mother.

* In ''WebComic/GirlGenius'', Anevka Sturmvoraus shoots her father in the back; she never shows the slightest regret, but then, it's his fault that she's a BrainInAJar controlling a robot body. [[spoiler: Or rather, a robot that only thinks she's the real Anevka, but she doesn't know that.]] The second novelization strongly implies that she killed her mother as well, though it doesn't give any context.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Dio Brando kills his father Dario with a slow-acting poison, making it look like Dario is dying of a disease. He hated his father for being abusive to his mother, [[EvenBadMenloveTheirMamas whom he loved dearly.]] He tries to do it again (using the same method, no less!) to his adoptive father George Joestar (for the money), and [[YouMeddlingKids would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for that meddling Jonathan]]!
