FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – Tucker Cipriano and his friend, Mitchell Young, have confessed to attacking the Cipriano family with baseball bats on the morning of April 16 at the family's Farmington Hills home.
Now, Local 4 has the police report which details Tucker's haunting recollections of the attack. According to the police report, Tucker told police he wanted to talk more. It's all outlined in the report.
The 19-year-old has plenty of time to think about the attack as he sits in solitary confinement at the Oakland County Jail. He and Young face murder and attempted murder charges.

"Tucker stated that he had a dream last night in which he saw his mother and father," the April 18 police report reads. "That he was still traumatized with the sound of hearing his father being struck. Tucker stated he could still hear the sound played over and over in his head. Tucker said his father was his 'hero.'"
In contrast, when he spoke of his mother, Rose Cipriano, who was critically beaten, he had a different demeanor.
"His facial expressions changed and he mainly discussed arguments that he had with her," the report reads.
Later in the interview, Tucker told police he never struck his father and he did not recall ever striking his mother.
"Tucker indicated that he held onto his father as Young repeatedly struck him with a baseball bat," the report reads.
Still, when he was asked if he hit his mother, "Tucker stated that he may have," the report reads.
According to police, Tucker's 8-year-old sister, Isabella, came down from her bedroom and Tucker recalled what she said to him.
"I thought you loved me, why are you hitting mom?"
Tucker said his 17-year-old brother, Sal Cipriano, who also was critically beaten, came at him with a BB gun and that Tucker "had broken a BB gun on him."
Tucker fled to a friend's house in Keego Harbor where he told a friend his parents were dead, according to police. Then a group of five of them smoked spice.
The confessions are key evidence that will be in a court hearing on Friday.
