Anthony Templet's house

This is the house where Anthony Templet shot his father, Burt Templet.

It is situated at 17652 Gray Moss Avenue in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The case gained worldwide attention after it was featured in the Netflix documentary series "I Just Killed My Dad", which premiered in August 2022.

In the early hours of June 3rd, 2019, Anthony Templet called 911 and told the operator that he had killed his father:

"Uh... I just uh... killed my dad. Um... What do I need to tell you?"

When police officers arrived at the scene, they handcuffed the 17-year-old and put him in the back of their vehicle. They then went inside the house, where they found Burt Templet lying motionless on the bathroom floor.

Although the 53-year-old initially survived the shooting and was transported to a nearby hospital, he died from his injuries a few days later.

During questioning, Anthony told detectives that his father had drunkenly barged into his room at around 3 a.m. At the time, Burt was reportedly incensed that his son had made contact with his former stepmother.

At some point during the argument, his father started acting aggressively. In response, Anthony ran into the master bedroom, locked the door behind him, and grabbed two revolvers. Meanwhile, his father started banging on the bedroom door and trying to force his way inside.

After locating the two guns, the teenager opened the door and shot his father, who stumbled backwards and then pleaded with him to stop. However, Anthony ignored his pleas and fired two more shots.

During the investigation, it emerged that Burt was a violent and controlling man who frequently abused his son and partners. He kept them under constant surveillance by putting up multiple surveillance cameras around the house and installing GPS trackers on their phones. He also isolated his son from the outside world by preventing him from going to school or attending dental appointments.

In another twist, it was revealed that Burt had essentially taken Anthony from his birth mother in 2007 and then moved to Louisiana. Anthony's birth mother, Teresa Thompson, did not have the financial resources to fight a custody battle in another state. As a result, Burt was able to gain sole custody of their son.

Although Anthony was initially charged with second-degree murder, his defense lawyer managed to strike a deal with the District Attorney, Hillar Moore.

After weighing up the strange circumstances surrounding the case, Moore eventually agreed to reduce the charge to negligent homicide.

As a result, Anthony Templet was given probation instead of a jail term.

Teresa Thompson is Anthony's birth mother. She met his father, Burt, while he was working for an oil company in Texas.

The pair quickly hit it off, and she eventually agreed to move to Houston with him.

Although everything seemed great in the beginning, it wasn't long before she started seeing red flags. Thompson said that he demanded her attention from morning to night. On one occasion, he became aggressive because she was too busy cooking and cleaning to turn her head and look at him.

On another occasion, he beat her so badly that she was in bed for a week.
