Michael Redfearn also revealed that he lost his wife the same week as his son. She died of a bacterial infection, he said.

"Both my son and my wife were cremated and I'm going to take them with me on a road trip," he said. "Just have some time with them and let this all sink in."

After breaking in, the three teenagers were shot dead by the homeowner's son, 23-year-old Zach Peters. Authorities say Peters was defending his home and will not face charges.

"It's hard to swallow," Redfearn said, "but at the same time it was expected. We live in Oklahoma. We have a 'stand my ground' law."

Redfearn said he "wholeheartedly" believes the driver of the teenagers' getaway car, Elizabeth Rodriguez, was the one who came up with the crime.

"She was definitely the ringleader," he told Inside Edition. "She's the one who set this whole thing up."
