The heir to a €50 million fortune confessed to killing his father with a spiked bat he claims was inspired by a weapon he had used in Dead Rising 2, according to this Kotaku report. The crime is making headlines in Spain and has other ties to video gaming, according to several Spanish papers. The brutal June 30 slaying of Andreu Bennasar Coll.

Andreu Tur Coll, 18, and his friend Francisco Zaragoza Abbas Rodriguez, 20, committed the gruesome act with a weapon fashioned out of a baseball bat and four-inch nails, inspired by one of Coll’s favorite games, Dead Rising 2. On June 30 the duo used the spiked bat, a vase, a hammer, and a large speaker to bludgeon Coll's father to death. Police say the victim was struck by the spiked bat at least 40 times. The motive for the crime was the money which Coll was the sole heir to. The two had apparently plotted the elder Coll's death for some time, at one point trying to slip a huge dosage of sleeping pills into a cake.

Shortly after the funeral both were arrested. The duo had tried to make the murder look like a robbery gone wrong and even attempted to clean up much of the evidence. Police still found traces of blood at the elder Coll's residence.
