* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyle_and_Erik_Menendez The Menendez brothers]] killed both their parents with shotguns and gained their considerable wealth in August 1989, attempting to pass it off as organized crime. The investigation didn't focus on them for several months, only getting a break when the former girlfriend of the psychologist of one of the brothers informed police about his confession during therapy. A dispute over police access to the session tapes went all the way to the Supreme Court (which ruled that some where he threatened the psychologist could be used, but not the confession tape), before the murder case itself finally went to trial in 1992. The brothers claimed hideous abuse as a FreudianExcuse, but were sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

* One of Marvels ''WhatIf'' stories is set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture where an aging ComicBook/CaptainAmerica has a final confrontation with a now decrepit and elderly RedSkull, who has kidnapped Cap's wife and children as leverage and trapped them with a bomb connected to a deadmans switch hooked to the Skulls vital signs. He then reveals that during his absence, he has sired and raised a son of his own as the new Red Skull, and when their plan falls apart, the son shoots and kills his father to activate the bomb and distract Cap long enough for him to escape and fight another day. True to form, [[SoProudOfYou the Red Skull is proud of his son for being as ruthless and calculating as him]].
