13 year old ‘rapes’ and kills his mother over Call Of Duty

2 min read


Living in South Africa has many benefits but it also has that constant reminder of crime and the depths people will go for one reason or another. In a sense it has become hard to shock us as a collective but I have to say I feel a little queasy after reading this article in the Daily Mail.

It revolves around Noah Crooks, now 14, who is standing trial for the murder of his mother last year. Now a kid killing his mother is bad enough but the jury has just been played an audio recording of the 911 call that he made

I feel crazy and I know I’m not. I think I have some form of ADD,’ Crooks told the 911 operator. ‘I tried to rape her. I tried to rape her but I couldn’t do it.

‘Who tries to rape their own mom? My life is down the drain now.’

When the police arrived they found his mother riddled with bullets on the couch, her blouse had been ripped open and she was naked from the waist down.

So what made this lunatic kill and attempt to rape his own mother? Well apparently she had taken his Call of Duty away because he had received bad grades in class.

Let this be a lesson to all of us

  1. Raping your mother is bad… never thought I’d have to say that
  2. Giving your 13 year old Call of Duty is bad, it has an age restriction, dummy
  3. Buying your 11 year old a .22 rifle is not good parenting
  4. Keep a sick bag at hand when reading stories like this.

    No kid, you don’t have ADD, you’ve got crazy.

  • Trevor Davies

    No kid, you don’t have ADD, you’ve got crazy.

  • Styx ZA

    And all this happened because of CoD? Not because the child had some sort of mental issue?
    Yeah you are right, must be the games.

  • Deon Steyn

    This kid probably was spoiled more than Paris Hilton. Some parents just can’t discipline their kids. I went to Panarotis yesterday for lunch and to my horror it was kids below 12 eat free day. The little bastards were screaming and running all over the restaurant I really felt for the waiters one who is one of my friends and I later bought him a couple off shots at the pub.

    My point being that you can’t let your kids run wild and then suddenly oone day start to lay down the law.

    This is a horrible story.

    Very upsetting to hear things like this happen.

    • Sageville

      Ya no funny here, just sick

    This is a horrible story.

    This kind of stories just upsets me. I just dont see how one can bring themselves to doing such disgusting and crazy acts. I dont understand why parents gives there young kids these games to play anyway. Its not games, but more the parents at the end of the day. This boy needs 50years of intensive shock therapy to the brain.

    • oomjan

      yes agree. It’s not the games it’s Just that people don’t care about age restrictions on games and that makes me sad. I would say they must figure out a new way to restrict young kids from playing these games. I know of 8 year olds playing Battlefield3 and in my eyes that doesn’t seem right.

  • Mother [email protected]…nuff said

  • Admiral Chief Erwin


    I hope we have better news the rest of the day and week, else I retire NOW

    • Rince da Ref Lvl2

      Well, some good news, we are considering revoking your CoD ban, you may now vent.

      • Admiral Chief Erwin

        Tbh, after reading this, I’m not in the mood.

        (Secondly, you are in no position to allow or revoke, Admiral Chief rank overrules)

  • Worst story of the week….and it’s Monday Kids shouldn’t fucking play these games, what the hell are 12 year old doing playing COD, I see young kids playing all these violent game and parents complaining about their kids’ behavior. Here’s a nice solution for ya, stop spoiling your kids! they don’t need iPhones , they don’t need fancy things at that age. They should not be playing these games. Why are they on Xbox Live playing COD which is a cesspit of profane language and unruly behavior …. smack your kids upside the head , don’t give time outs or use your words …. WAKE UP BEFORE YOUR KIDS BECOMES PSYCHOS!!!

  • thats why there are age restrictions on games…

  • Rince da Ref Lvl2

    A sad story, but also an extreme example of why there are fucking age restrictions on games. They are there for a reason. So, when FOXHOUND reads this I hope you get there reason people take the piss out of you and your fucking retarded farther, who posts on your behalf when trying to defend a game that is ADULT in material. Play Pokemon, not ‘I’m going to sniper your head off form 100 yards’, saddens me when adults allow this, it’s god damn child abuse.

  • Dafuq did I just read?? Boy went full retard!

  • OVG OfflineVideoGamer

    I am an adult (man child with Peter Pan Syndrome) ;P BUT!!! even I can make decisions for myself. When I first watched the “No Russian” scene when it was causing a big stink on FOX NEWS I was shocked and felt a little sick inside that my hobby has become so SEEDY. I DONT PLAY THAT SHIT!!

    Yes!! during my teens I hung around the arcade trying to learn the moves of Sub Zeros spine rip. That was stylalised in a cartoon manners. The graphics today like GTAIV is starting to shock the hell out of me. If its the way the bodies now fly off the Bonnet or the way they hobble around after being shot… I felt a little sick. (I have 2 medals from peace keeping) so I have seen violence.


    This industry makes me sick and it is time the polichickens started banning this shit because The Parents still have no scooby doo that what they think is a kiddie past time is breeding evil.

    Would you let your 12 year old son watch HOSTEL for 12hours a day everyday for five years while a new snuff film is released every 6months???


  • oomjan

    Well I agree. It could be the games cause there’s an age restriction. 18+ and then 14 year old get to play this. Also spoiled kids tends to do stuff like this. I will never let my kids play a game like this until they at least 16 years old. But same goes for movies

  • foo

    Why is this posted on this website? This is horrible judgement.

    • oomjan

      My week is screwed now. Won’t be able to recover from this.

  • because….well it’s COD.. let the rants start!

  • Faeez Hendricks
  • It annoys the shit out of me when kids learn about actual mental and medical disorders and claim it as a response for when they get caught out at doing stupid things. That being said it does matter what shrink you go to, chances are after your first session you will be diagnosed with some or other “disorder”

    This child does not have ADD. He’s just a brat. Obviously with pretty shitty upbringing, who the hell gets their 13 year old a war simulator (yes Im being nice today) with an age restriction of 18. That is not parenting. Take away games because he got bad grades… wtf.. give the shit a hiding, thats it. problem solved.

    As for the attempted raping, that is unbelievably shocking. He might not have ADD, but he sure has a lot of access to deplorable behaviour. How it was even considered as a “fitting” punishment for his own mother for taking a game away leads me to believe there was a lot more going on than just a minor game being taken away.

  • Aussious

    To quote a great man “it is no measure of health to be we adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

  • Yateen Dayaram

    I feel more depressed for the human race

  • And that will add fuel to the fire in the Video Game causes violence debate.

  • Purple_Dragon

    The biggest problem is that the media and others jumping on this games causes violence thing never ever mention that the games are age restricted.

    Porn is age restricted but I don’t see anyone giving their kids porn. It’s the same concept, age restrictions are there for a reason.

  • Two things I noticed: A 13 year old had access to Call of Duty which is a M rated 17+ title, and he had access to a loaded firearm.

  • imafunguy

    The video games aren’t to blame that’s for sure. He was already screwy to begin with, the violent video games just didn’t help.
