The Posture of a Mother and Wife Accused of Killing Her Family: All Smiles and A Double Thumbs Up!

Isabel Martinez, we shudder to think what you believe you are mimicking here.*“What prompts a person to take the life of such innocent children and her spouse is something we may never understand,” is the statement that came from the Gwinnett County Police Department on Thursday.

It’s spot on.

“This is a horrendous crime not only for the victims but for the extended family, neighborhood and community,” it concludes. The statement is in response to the crime committed by 33-year-old Isabel Martinez, who is charged with  five counts of malice murder, five counts of murder and six counts of aggravated assault in the stabbing deaths of her children: 10-year-old Isabela Martinez, 7-year-old Dacota Romero, 4-year-old Dillan Romero, 2-year-old Axel Romero; and their dad, 33-year-old Martin Romero. One child, Diana Romero, the 9-year-old daughter of the woman, survived the attack, but she is hospitalized in serious condition.

The bodies of the deceased was found in the Emory Lane home after an unidentified woman called 911 from inside to report a stabbing on Thursday at 4:47 a.m. ET. Continue reading

Woman Who Does Nothing as Maggots Eat Away at Body of Disabled Husband, Only Gets 4 Years in Jail (Watch)

*It’s as if a Black life means nothing. I wasn’t in the courtroom, so I don’t know what transpired between the judge, jury, defendant and even the court transcriber. But what I know is for some reason everybody walked out of that courtroom knowing that a wife who let her husband’s paralyzed body get consumed by maggots will go to jail…for four years.

People abusing animals have received harsher sentences.

Now yeah, I know, jail is not always the answer. And yes, there could have been extenuating circumstances.

Like maybe the wife was…is…mentally disturbed.

She’d have to be. But then again, she could just be heartless.

Reports say 37-year-old Dormanica Lawson was arrested after police were called to the house only to find her husband of 12 years, Mark Fulgham, close to death on a dirty mattress on the floor.

Man Murders Wife Because He Couldn’t Afford Her Pain Meds

Williams & Carolyn Hager
Williams & Carolyn Hager

*This story, oddly enough, prompted me to call my 77-year-old mom, just to check in, tell her I love her, and make sure she was ok. The guy I’m about to tell you about clearly was not.

William Hager, 86, fatally shot his wife of more than 50 years, Carolyn, 78, in the head while she slept, because they couldn’t afford her medication.

They’d been living their lives out, after raising children together, in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Clearly, the family was close. Hager called his daughters to tell them what happened, before he called 911.

The first question that came to mind as I learned of this story was “Where were the Hagers’ daughters as the elderly couple struggled with their bills?”

A police report offers chilling details: Continue reading

Man Pleaded Guilty to Fatally Shooting Ex, Now Wants to Take it Back (Graphic Video)

Boyfriend wants to change plea

*After 10 months of being behind bars following a guilty plea of fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend because he couldn’t accept the fact that she wanted to break up with him, one man has had a change of heart, so to speak, and is now asking to recant that plea.

Video was recently released (scroll down) showing Donald Bricker describing to detectives how he fatally shot his ex-girlfriend, Miriam “Shade” Adebayo, in a Target parking lot last year in Germantown, Md. At the time of his admission, Bricker was hospitalized. He had attempted to flee the crime scene, crashed his truck in the process and was taken to the hospital — where the video was made.

Bricker had sent thousands of text messages to Shade — a beautiful, accomplished woman, as she tried to pull away. Now, in an lengthy, rambling request from his Montgomery County jailcell, the Maryland man wants to renege on that plea claiming his lawyer did not fully explain the consequences of a guilty plea.

He also claims that he was high on prescription drugs when he admitted to the murder, and now, 10 months later, has had trouble thinking clearly.

OK. But she is still dead…Are you trying to say you DIDN’T kill her or just admit you didn’t realize the consequences of admitting to it?

Good Samaritan in N. C. Shot & Killed By Driver He Tried to Help


*Damn. Damn. Damn! This is exactly the kind of stuff that makes people apprehensive about helping a stranger.

The scene: A car had slid off the highway in Catawba, North Carolina on Friday and a group of good Samaritans got out of their cars to assist the driver. And when they felt they needed even more assistance, they called the sheriff’s office.

Big mistake.

The authorities say that when the driver of the troubled vehicle caught wind of this, he went berserk and started shooting at the people; who at this time began running to their cars. Continue reading

*Here we go again. What an eff’d up way to start the week. News that is becoming way too much of a trend reveals a Phoenix woman who allegedly drowned her 2-year-old twin boys because, as she told police, “no one loved them or her.” This according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press on Monday.

The mother, 22-year-old Mireya Alejandra Lopez, was arrested on Sunday at her Avondale home and after a judge ordered her to be jailed, he charged her with two counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Attempted Murder (she also tried to drown a third child, read on).

Her bail has been set at $2 million dollars. Continue reading

Sicko: Teen Kills Mother, Throws Party With Body in House

Teen kills mother

*I’m just gonna say it: This is the kind of sick mess that makes you want to grab somebody and whip the living sh*t out of them. That somebody being the 16-year-old that couldn’t hold his temper long enough to think of any better way to settle an argument with his  35-year-old mother than to strangle and stab her 100 times.

According to police, this is what Kit Darrant did.

Then, this same sicko, covered his dead mother’s body in sheets and blankets and kept it lying on the floor of her bedroom for eight days; dousing it periodically with Gain detergent to cover the smell.

The 16-year-old student who attended school at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School in North Miami-Dade County, lived it up in the meantime: playing hookie, using money he took from his mother’s purse to go shopping, and even throwing a party; all while caring for his then 3-year-old brother.

In court more than three years later, he had the bold-faced audacity to stand before a judge and say, “The man that I am now is not the boy that I used to be. Actions speak louder than words, and I intend to prove that to you.”

Really? And what may I ask, caused this change for the better? 

Gag me. You’re the same lowlife asshole now as you were then. And any judge needs to throw the book at you for life.

Unfortunately, Darrant got off with 28 years. Continue reading
