An Ohio dad accused of executing two of his sons before he “hunted” down and shot the third appears sitting calmly on his porch in bodycam video as responding deputies find the children’s bodies scattered around his lawn.
Chad Christopher Doerman, 32, is being held on $20 million bail for three charges of aggravated murder in the shooting deaths of his three boys, ages 3, 4 and 7.
The video shows deputies responding to 911 calls after 4 p.m. June 15, exiting their vehicles and seeking cover as they approach Doerman, who appears to ignore some of their commands but is taken into custody without additional violence.
Throughout the three videos authorities released, black bars obscure the screen where the boys’ bodies are laying on the grass. Immediately after Doerman is in cuffs, deputies attempt to render aid.

As medics tried to treat the victims, a deputy asks him what he was doing.

The deputy picks him up and another arrives to escort him to the back of a cruiser.
“Can you get the wallet out of my pocket?” Doerman can be heard asking a deputy as he’s led away in cuffs.
“Shut up, dude – you have the right to remain silent,” the disgusted officer replies. “F—ing use it.”
One tried to flee, according to authorities, but Doerman allegedly chased him, caught him, and dragged him home to be shot.
Doerman is due back in court on June 26.
