MICHIGAN CITY: Police say boy thought his dad was ‘evil’

MICHIGAN CITY | A teenager passing through the area with his father concluded his father was “evil” and had to die, so he stabbed him several times while both were in the parking lot of Crazy D’s Truck Stop in Michigan City, police said.

The teenager, 18-year-old Dane Hoover, was arrested Tuesday morning on an attempted murder charge. His father, 54-year-old Tom Hoover, was taken to St. Anthony Memorial in Michigan City for treatment of multiple stab wounds to the face and chest, police said. No condition report was available. Both are long-haul truckers from Sandy, Utah.

“They have a statement from the son that he’d been reading The Book of Mormon, and somewhere along the line he said he had an epiphany that his father was evil and that he needed to kill him — and that’s what he attempted to do,” said LaPorte County police Major Gary Broling.

The stabbing occurred shortly before 3 a.m. Tuesday at Crazy D’s on U.S. 421, just south of Interstate 94.

Broling said the younger Hoover was jailed on a felony attempted murder charge. The teen, ordered held without bond, is scheduled to appear Friday in LaPorte Circuit Court. He faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted of the charge.

Broling said the Hoovers were en route to Bronx, N.Y.
