In the last hearing, the family's lawyer had clearly told that Ryan had killed his 64-year-old mother on March 31, 2020. Ryan shot his mother in the head from behind while she was playing the piano. The legal authority has found evidence that Ryan had practiced several times before committing the murder, as well as video-recorded the entire process at the time of the murder.
