Sore Loser Wrongly Claims His Video Game Opponent Killed Sister, Mother at Long Island Home

Not everyone responds well to losing.

The FBI is searching for one sore loser who apparently was so upset when he lost in an online video game that he called authorities, pretending to be the teen who beat him in Call of Duty. The prank caller told police Tuesday that he was 18-year-old Rafael Castillo and that he had just killed his mother and brother, the New York Post reports.

The call prompted more than 70 heavily armed officers, along with ambulances and hostage negotiators, to swarm the innocent teen’s Long Island house.

When they arrived, the teen’s mother and sister were fine.

“I thought there was a fire at my house. I ran up and saw my mom running out. I didn’t know what was going on,” the brother, Jose, 21, told the Post.

Now the FBI is trying to figure out who made the call.
