Being holiday, Tamara Mason decided to spend some time with her three sons at their home in Alberta, Minnesota. She wanted them to play a game of Yahtzee. But the teens were either morally opposed to board games. They were freaked out and decided to kill their own mother.
17-year-old Jacob Cobb decided to put a plastic bag over Tamara’s head, then choked her to death with a belt. His brothers simply watched, and did nothing.
Afterward, they argued on how to get rid of her body. As it was winter in Minnesota, the ground was too cold to dig a grave. So they dumped her in a trash can and put her body in a storage shed until the soil thawed.
They likely would have gotten away with it, except the Cobb boys are not only huge shitbags; they’re also morons. ?The oldest brother, Dylan, decided to ask a friend for advice on how to dispose of a dead body. The friend was presumably much smarter than the Cobb boys. He put two-and-two together, seeing as how the query came from a guy whose mother just happened to be missing.
Police finally discovered Tamara’s backyard grave last week. Jacob has been charged with murder, and is expected to be tried as an adult. 18-year-old Andrew Cobb has been charged as an accessory, since he helped dispose of the body.
Dylan has also been charged, since he watched his younger brother kill his mom, then joined the discussion on how to decompose her body.
