In 2012, Jake Evans phoned a 911 operator and calmly told her how he shot dead his mum and sister.

The 17-year-old stole his grandfather's .22-calibre revolver to kill his 48-year-old mother, Jamie Evans, and his 15-year-old sister, Mallory, in their $500,000 home in Aledo, Texas.

Evans did not give a specific reason for the killings, but said that he didn't "really like people's attitudes" and said people were "verbally rude to each other."

"I guess this is really selfish to say, but to me, I felt like they were just suffocating me in a way," he said calmly. "I don't know.Obviously, you know, I'm pretty, I guess, evil."

He told the operator that he told his sister that his mother needed to see her. When his sister came out of her room, Evan said he shot her. She rolled down the stairs and he shot her again, he said.

"I'll never forget this. My sister, she came down the stairs and she was screaming and I was telling her that I'm sorry but to just hold still--that, you know, I was just going to make it go away," he said. "But she just kept on freaking out, but finally she she fell down, and I got her in the head about, probably, three times."

"Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone. I'm going to be messed up," he told the operator. "I'm really worried about nightmares and stuff like that. Are there any type of medications for that and stuff?"

"I don't mean to sound like a wimp or anything, but this is, wow, I've never, like, done anything violent in my whole life," he added.

When police arrived at the home, Evans was standing outside with his hands in the air and was arrested without incident, according to police. Authorities believe Evans' father was out of town on a business trip when the shootings occurred.

Jake spoke calmly about the crimes he'd committed and it makes for very eerie listening.

Earlier this year, Jake Evans pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and was sentenced to a 45-year prison term.  He will serve at least 22 and a half years in prison before becoming eligible for parole.
