Millennial Charged With Murder of Parents Who Booted Him From Home Over $200K Porn ‘Girlfriend’

“He didn’t think they were fair because he felt that the Bulgarian female was his girlfriend.”

A 29-year-old Florida man was charged Monday with first-degree murder for allegedly killing his parents and brother after he was kicked out of the family home over his pricey relationship with a cam girl.

Grant Amato was arrested and held without bail. He faced three counts of first-degree murder.

Seminole County Sheriff’s Office deputies found the bodies of parents, Chad and Margaret Ann Amato, and brother Cody Amato in their house in Chuluota Friday. A coworker had reported that the brother had not shown up to work.

Grant Amato had stolen $60,000 and guns from Cody Amato to talk to a Bulgarian porn star he met online, the brother’s girlfriend said, according to an affidavit reported on by the Orlando Sentinel. She also said Grant Amato had recently been kicked out of nurse anesthetist school. and that Cody Amato feared his brother “would kill everyone.”

A surviving brother Jason Amato, said Grant Amato had stolen another $150,000 from their father.

In an interview with investigators, Grant Amato said he had argued with his parents over his relationship with the porn star, who performed at the “Cam Girls” website. His parents demanded he cut off contact with her and complete a 60-day internet- and sex-addiction treatment program in Fort Lauderdale if he wanted to stay at home, he said.

Amato consented but ultimately dropped out of the program and got back in touch with the woman “because he felt that the Bulgarian female was his girlfriend and they had a relationship,” the affidavit said.

In response to seeing crime-scene pictures of his dead parents and brother, Amato said “his family had been blaming him for months for ruining their lives … so he might as well be blamed for this, too,” according to the affidavit.


Authorities had twice responded to calls about Amato’s behavior, The Sentinel reported.

In June, Orlando police were called to AdventHealth Orlando, where Amato worked as a nurse, about a report of a suicidal person. Officers said Amato did not meet the criteria to be held for observation as a danger to himself or others, but he was arrested on a grand theft charge for allegedly stealing vials of Propofol, a powerful sedative.

Amato explained at the time that he had taken the drug to give to patients who were not “adequately relaxed by doctor-ordered medication,” according to a police report. Prosecutors did not press charges.

On Dec. 20, Amato’s mother and brother Cody Amato reported that Amato was missing, depressed, and possibly suicidal after losing his job and failing out of school. They also told deputies that he had access to guns.

Compared to previous generations, millennials have been more likely than previous generations to live at home with their parents well into adulthood. Liberals tend to attribute the trend to a decline in wages and employment for less-educated young people, whereas conservatives have pointed to social factors, including the decline of marriage and the rise of porn.

Meanwhile, female streamers have their own controversial place in the culture wars, mostly in relation to gaming. A number of women have built highly lucrative businesses by playing video games, often scantily clad, or doing sexy cosplay live in exchange for money. Male gamers been critical of the women, accusing them of being exploitative posers, and in some cases bombarding them with sexist abuse.

Actual female gamers have in some cases been tarred with the same brush as the streamers.

It is that abuse, rather than the larger phenomenon, that has often been picked up by the press, leaving many in the gaming community frustrated by what they see a feminist culture that is too quick to vilify men.
