“He said, ‘turn the camera on, turn the camera on, I want to show you something,’ ” Lagos told CBS. “He recorded videos for me, to see my parents dead. I can’t believe it. He’s a monster, that he can do that to two older people.”

Lagos said her oldest son discovered the badly beaten bodies of her parents while dropping off money at their West Palm Beach home.

CBS also reported that Silva attacked the boy with a knife and threatened to kill him.

The boy was able to fight back and subdue Silva until Palm Beach County deputies arrived at the murder scene.

Lagos’ father was found “laying on his back with severe blunt force trauma to his face,” the sheriff’s office told CBS. Her mother was “positioned on the bed nude on her knees with severe blunt force trauma on her torso, arms and face.”

Silva told investigators that he had been drinking the day of the slayings and did not recall killing the couple, who had recently celebrated their anniversary.

“65 years together. They have a beautiful family. Many grandchildren. Many great-grandchildren. They took him like a son. They gave him everything. I don’t know why he did that. There’s no explanation,” Lagos told CBS.
