Joel Guy Jr, the Louisiana man accused of stabbing and dismembering his parents over the Thanksgiving weekend in Tennessee four years ago, made very detailed plans for the heinous crimes.
The depravity is revealed in his meticulous hand written notes detailing steps for the slaughter and disposal of his victims before hand, a jury heard Tuesday.
The 31-year-old appeared in Knoxville court on Tuesday for the second day of testimony in his two count first-degree murder trial in the November 2016 death and dismemberment of his father Joel Michael Guy Sr, 61, and his 55-year-old mother, Lisa Guy.

The motive was financial because Guy Jr’s parents had been planning to stop supporting him so they could retire comfortably, prosecutors said

The killer allegedly, then dismembered his parents bodies, tried to dissolve some of the remains and boiled his mother’s head in a pot.
One incriminating evidence the prosecution is presenting at trial is that before carrying out the heinous crime, the suspect meticulously plotted his every move in a notebook, detailing at great length a step-by-step manual on how he would kill his parents, including how he would dispose of their remains: ‘Douse killing rooms (kitchen?) with bleach,’ one of the bullet points discovered in the notebook reads.
‘Flush chunks down toilet, not garbage disposal … don’t have to get rid of body if no forensic evidence,’ it further states.

Before allegedly carrying out the heinous crime, Guy Jr, a medical student, meticulously plotted his every murderous move in a notebook, first detailing at great length how he would kill his mother and father, then how he would dispose of their remains, step-by-step

Reinforcing with police’s theory that Guy Sr died first, the notes instructs,
‘kill him with the knife… clean up mess from him before she get home.’
The corresponding bullet point reads ‘kill her with a knife’, before instructions to place ‘her’ – to which the police interpret to be Lisa Guy – in the shower and ‘turn on hot water and point at her to get rid of forensics’.
The notes then detail how Guy Jr. allegedly sought to place his father’s body in a plastic bin and use it to haul him into the shower alongside his mother’s body to wash away evidence.
The explicit murder instruction fuerther adds, ‘Cut off his arm and plant flesh under her fingernails,’ the scrawl, written in blue ink, reads on the page.
‘Use sodium hydroxide to destroy his soft tissue and soften bones for transport. Baste once every hour to accelerate,’ it states.

A reminder to send a text from ‘her phone to send to me… late Sunday’ is also specified. The author details that such a ruse would ‘prove that I was in [Baton Rouge] and she was alive.’

Guy was reportedly studying to be a plastic surgeon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and had been in college for nine years while his parents supported him.
The perennial student’s motive was financial because his parents had been planning to stop giving him money, prosecutors said.
The couple, both engineers, were ready to retire and stop providing their son with financial assistance.
In anticipation the Guys had just sold their house and were in the process of moving into another home belonging to Guy Sr’s deceased mother, which they had recently purchased.
The Kingsport Times-News quotes Guy Sr’s sister, Rene Charles, stating that her brother and his wife had planned to retire in Surgoinsville, Tenn.

Leading to the savage murders, the suspect arrived at his parents’ home in Knoxville on Wednesday Nov 23, spent Thanksgiving with his parents and three sisters, and returned to Baton Rouge on Sunday.
When Lisa failed to show up for work on Monday Nov. 28, her supervisor, Jennifer Whitehead, made multiple attempts to reach her by phone, but she did not pick up.
Concerned for her safety, Whitehead told jurors she called the authorities and asked them to perform a welfare check, leading to the gruesome discoveries that were described by investigators as ‘horrific.’
Deputies performing a welfare check entered the Guys’ home in West Knox County that Monday and ‘discovered body parts strewn throughout’ the  residence.

One of the attending officers, Detective Jeremy McCord testified Tuesday that he had an ‘ominous feeling’ when he arrived first on-scene at the home.
He recounted his foreboding entering the property through a garage door: ‘As soon as that garage door opened, we immediately felt heat,’ said McCord. ‘Walking through the downstairs of the house, nothing made sense to me.’
The detective detailed how groceries had not been put away properly and he spotted two people’s wallets next to one another on the table.
McCord said after he saw what he believed to be blood on the wall, he instructed all officers present to put gloves on.
‘You can see straight down the hall and I saw hands… not connected to a body. At that point, the other officers held the hallway and we started doing standard building clearing.
‘I will never get those smells out of my head or my dreams,’ he said.
Jurors saw the aftermath of the grisly crime when Knox County Sheriff’s officer Sandy Campbell took the witness stand yesterday and narrated a 30-minute video showing her walking through the crime scene.
The graphic video shows blood stains on the carpet throughout the house, piles of bloodied, shredded clothing belonging to the victims, and a severed human hand resting on the floor in the couple’s blood-spattered home gym.
The recording also shows the kitchen, with a large metal stockpot covered with a lid containing Lisa Guy’s head boiling on the stove.

Knox County prosecutor Leslie Nassios on Monday detailed the full roster of the horrific injuries sustained by the victims.
Guy Sr was stabbed and slashed 42 times, with some of the blows severing his ribs and puncturing his liver, lungs and kidneys.
Autopsy showed that his hands were cut off at the wrists, his arms were severed at the shoulder blade, his legs were sawed off at the hip and his right foot was removed at the ankle.
Nassios said the evidence indicated the father fought for his life.
Lisa Guy was stabbed 31 times and had nine of her ribs severed. Her legs were cut off below the knee and her arms were removed at the shoulder.
Guy Jr was apprehended at his apartment in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a day after the discoveries as he tried to get flee in his 2006 Hyundai Sonata.
Joel Guy Jr.’s sister and half-sister also took the stand and said they knew Joel Guy Sr. and Lisa Guy planned to financially cut off their brother.
They planned to tell him during the Christmas holiday, where the family planned to be together at the family’s new home in Surgoinsville.
The defendant’s half-sister Angela told the court Lisa Guy “only worked to give her paycheck” to Joel Guy Jr.
Their father told his wife it “was time for Joel Michael to stand on his own two feet.”
In her own testimony the defendant’s sister Michelle Tyler, said said she thought it was odd that Joel Guy Jr. who rarely talked to the family was talking to her kids and showing them old toys during the 2016 Thanksgiving holiday. She also recalled seeing blue containers in her brother’s car on Thanksgiving. The containers match the description of the containers found containing the human remains.
Another family member Robin White, testified on Monday afternoon that her brother, Joel Guy Sr. told her he was planning to retire, move and cut his son off financially.
While killing and dismembering his parents Nov. 26, 2016, the state believes Guy suffered his own wounds.
Investigators found evidence that he tried to treat himself, but ultimately elected to drive back to Baton Rouge on Sunday, Nov. 27, 2016 to get treatment for his hands.
The state is not seeking the death penalty against Guy Jr.  
The murder trial is expected to last a week.
