True Crime Update 3/27/08

Here’s a True Crime post and we do one of the more difficult tasks in this genre. For it’s one thing to report a crime, the location of the body, updates on the investigation. It’s heartbreaking to learn the horrific details of the victim’s last hours as despair and hopelessness fill their final seconds of life.

The murderer of Meredith Emerson, the pretty hiker who left on a trip with her dog and met up with Gary Hilton, has revealed the details of Meredith’s last days. He says he couldn’t bring himself to kill her dog, such a fine man.

Also, how about that fine Detroit lying sack of crap Mayor? The story of a brave prosecutor whose going to bring this creep to justice.

Plus they let this former terrorist out of jail a bit too early, a man accidentally kills his wife while installing a satellite, a man kills his entire family in insane despair over his embezzlement charges and an update on that fine Drew Peterson whose wives keep disappearing all around him.

Meredith Hilton Fought Hard for Her Life

Emerson and Hilton, Hilton killed Emerson?

The murder of Meredith Hilton was covered on this Blog HERE and HERE.

As they struggled near the Appalachian Trail, Meredith Emerson disarmed her attacker of a knife and baton.

Hilton eventually subdued Emerson, kidnapped her and later killed her. She did not make it easy for him, according to interviews Hilton gave to investigators that were obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

I admit to a fascination with the True Crime genre, as should any yon reader currently perusing this post.

I once taught an adult school evening writing course. One of my students was a pretty liberal girl. As part of my teaching methodology I referred those students to my Blog and as, since I’ve been blogging since 2004, True Crime posts were part and parcel of my Blog writings, the sensitive liberal girl chanced upon one of my True Crime posts. My plan was for the entire class to have a Blog of its own where they could share their writings with each other. Which they did and which was successful and which they all enjoyed, but I digress.

She told me she got upset reading my True Crime posts and wouldn’t be able to use my Blog as a learning tool and, in fact, would have to drop out of my class.

Well I felt like crap, frankly. First, I didn’t want to lose a student like that and second I sure didn’t want to hurt her tender, sensitive liberal feelings as she was obviously a better human being than us dregs of society who are so insensitive as to read and write about true crime.

If I sound sarcastic about this liberal lass it’s because I am. That incident was a couple of years ago and if I chanced across this fine female sensitive piece of humanity today I’d slap her silly.

True Crime happens! It happens because, as this liberal lass obviously was unaware, there are bad people in the world.

And there’s certainly no problem with avoiding stories of bad people and the crimes they commit, no problem at all.

But folks learn a lot from reading or otherwise hearing the details of a true crime. Citizens can help to capture the bad guys if they learn descriptions and other identifying details. One of the major markers of success in Iraq was when the local citizenry became secure enough to report their bomb-making neighbors. In fact there’s a weekly show every week devoted to just that, informing the public of criminals on the loose and information about them that is known. It’s called “America’s Most Wanted” although I’m sure this fine liberal lass wouldn’t stoop to watching such a thing lest her sensitive self get upset.

Citizens, parents and caregivers also learn how to avoid being the victim of a crime, how to spot child abuse in their surround, where the bad people might be and how to avoid them. True Crime is reported in every newspaper in the country and often on the front page although this fine liberal lass likely averts her sensitive eyeballs.

At any rate, it’s a liberal thing. Liberals live in a world of love and joy and evidently one way they manage to do this, besides all the pot smoking, is to avoid true tales of life’s bad parts while impressing us all to hell with their sensitivity compared to our cretin selves. Liberals are frequently victims of true crimes, in fact, and this is nature’s way of culling out the stupid amongst us.

All that being said and rant now complete, I really do suffer when reading an account of a true crime as told by the victim through the criminal who did the bad deed. For often the reporting of a crime, either in a newspaper or on this humble Blog read by two to three people every day, involves type of crime, name of victim, location of deed…just the facts ma’am.

But should a criminal give the details of his or her crime, often they include scary and heartbreaking information about the last minutes of life of the victim and this information does tend to upset even I, the cretin who dares to write about life’s True Crimes.

And so it is with Meredith Emerson, a pretty, petite 24-year old woman who loved to hike with her dog and who had a great, big wide and vibrant life in front of her. Her killer, a worthless piece of garbage, Gary Hilton, proudly told detectives of Meredith’s last days on earth and that poor young woman suffered terribly.

Hilton met Meredith as she hiked and for a while they walked along together with their dogs. Then Hilton produced a knife and demanded Meredith’s ATM card. Before that Hilton had to beat and bludgeon Meredith so badly that her eyes were blackened and her nose broken.

Meredith gave Hilton bad PIN numbers in an attempt to remain alive and according to Hilton, it worked. But he had to restrain her and the first night he raped her and restrained her with a chain. Over the next couple of days, as Meredith continued to give Hilton wrong PIN numbers, she was forced to lay next to her tormenter with a noose tied around her neck and the other end tethered to Hilton lest she try to escape. This in the freezing cold and with her beaten, bloodied and sexually abused.

Hilton said he heard that police were looking for Meredith on his van’s radio and eventually he killed her because of fear he would be caught. So this young woman suffered horribly at the hands of a nothing nobody who brought zero worth to humankind.

It’s a story that makes me want to sob in the despair of Meredith’s suffering, the horror those four days must have been for her, how sadly her time ran out and despite all her suffering she was killed anyway.

Hilton killed Emerson by tying her to a tree than repeatedly hitting her with a tire jack. Such a fine man.

He told the investigators that he worried about Meredith’s dog and that it might match up with him someway, but there was no way he could kill the dog. Such a fine man.

He said it wasn’t easy to kill the young woman but he remarked, this worthless piece of human garbage, that the two of them had a couple of good days together. Yeah, right, I’m sure Meredith was having the time of her life.

So my own sensitive self does get upset to read these details of the victim’s suffering after the fact. It makes me angry at the worthlessness of humans who do such things, the unfairness that Gary Hilton lives and will not get the death penalty as the deal was he would not if he showed police where her body was.

I’m no lily-livered liberal here but the story of Meredith’s last few days of her life will give me cold chills for many days to come.

Man Kills Wife, Four Children In Despair Over HIS Crime

When it was first reported, as it was HERE, the story was that a female and four children were found shot and killed in their Iowa home. Later that same day, Steven Sueppel was found dead in his van on a nearby Interstate. The home and family killed was owned by Sueppel, who had also been charged with embezzling money from the bank where he worked.

But it got worse.

From Daily Iowan:
Sheryl Sueppel and her four children suffered blunt-force trauma, and husband and father Steven Sueppel is probably their killer, officials said Tuesday at a press conference.

Evidently the fine Mr. Sueppel killed his entire family with a baseball bat!

It’s one thing to take a gun, point it at your child and pull the trigger. It’s quite another to beat your own child to death, FOUR of them, with a baseball bat.

Later that day Steve Sueppel did the world a favor and intentionally wrecked his van on the Interstate, killed his fine self so he could go straight to hell where the devil awaited.

Why on earth did this man have to kill his wife and his four innocent children?

May those children rest in the arms of a loving Jesus and be happy in His peaceful heaven.

Drew Peterson Update

We like to keep up on the investigation of the very fine and lovable Drew Peterson, a former cop who seems to have no luck with wives. One of his four wives managed to die by slipping in a bathtub and his current wife, Stacey, has been missing since before Christmas. I follow the fine Peterson’s case on this Blog read by two to three people every day because who knows, maybe me and the two to three people who read this thing might form some kind of angry posse and take this man down our own selves. Whoever’s in charge in Illinois seems to think this guy should be allowed the murder of one, maybe two wives.

I ponder the fine Illinois cops who let this fellow get off on the murder of one wife only to be terribly embarrassed when another wife strangely disappeared, leaving her two young children behind. The fine Drew says Stacey rant off with another man, sure she did.

Now Drew would like his guns back and I’ve no doubt the Illinois police will fight that their comrade should have his guns back for God’s sake!

Only there’s a little delay before Drew will get them back and before he does I’d like to softly suggest to Illinois investigators that they might want to consider the public relations damage if this fine, fine fellow is given a whole slew of guns back although I know it’s not likely he’ll kill anyone with them soon with all the public scrutiny.


From the Chicago Tribune:
Drew Peterson will have to wait a few more weeks to learn whether his guns will be returned, due to postponement until April of a hearing that had been set for Tuesday.

And if denying the man return of his guns isn’t bad enough for this fine, innocent fellow, now we learn that the media insists on making Drew Peterson into some sort of sinister fellow when he’s only a hard-working guy whose wives either die by bathtub falls or run off leaving him with children to raise by his own fine self.

BOLINGBROOK, Ill. — Jobless and with no prospects, Drew Peterson spends his days taking care of his four children: cooking meals, washing clothes, helping with homework. All the while, he does so knowing that most of the world believes he killed his last two wives.

Of course it could be because he insists that the missing Stacy took off leaving her two young children behind. We are to believe that this young woman, who’d repeatedly warned many around her that she feared for her life at the hands of the fine, fine Drew, is currently holed up in a motel room with her lover, eating popcorn, making love and watching TV stories of her disappearance.

Further tales of Drew’s lack of romance in his life and his snarky comments about his wife’s menstrual cycles, well hey, far be I to suggest that this may be why the public doesn’t like Drew Peterson all that much.

That and his two dead wives.

These things do great damage to a fine man’s reputation.

Female Icon of My Youth Let Out of Jail a Year Too Soon

Sarah Olson

The state announced later Monday afternoon it's launching an investigation into how former Symbionese Liberation Army member Sara Jane Olson was released from prison at least a year early.

She looks for all the world like an everyday housewife.

But I remember the fine Sara Olson very well. I also remember fondly her fine organization, the Symbionese Liberation Army.

That “army” was just a bunch of worthless liberals out to cause havoc and chaos in the world. This was back in the 70’s when terrorists like Sara were put in jail when caught, not beloved by presidential candidates. Sara and her fine army attempted to bomb two police cars and they were directly involved in the death of a bank customer as this fine radical group robbed a bank to gain funds for its very important operations.

Somehow this fine woman actually got parole a whole year too soon and it was only by quick action that she was picked up at an airport where she was leaving town toot de sweet.

California. Home of radicals. California. Where radical Sara Olson got out of jail a year too soon.

We’ll be checking on how this happened.

The Bigger Question About This “Crime”…Whether to Laugh or Cry

So this fellow is trying to cut a hole in his home’s exterior wall in order to run a wire inside for a new satellite system. If a professional does this they usually use some sort of HUGE electric drill thing and it works.

Only Ronald Long evidently didn’t have the required tool or whatever and he resorted to trying to shoot a hole through the exterior wall. Only a bullet from his gun somehow hit his wife who had been standing nearby. Patsy Long died from the bullet to her chest.

From Kansas
SEDALIA, Mo. | Officials are trying to determine whether to file charges against a man who fatally shot his wife while trying to install a satellite television system in their home.

Patsy D. Long, 34, of Deepwater, was pronounced dead early Saturday evening after being shot in the chest with a .22-caliber handgun. Her husband, Ronald Long, fired the shot from the inside of their home after several unsuccessful efforts to punch a hole through the exterior wall using other means.

The article linked is a bit scant on details. It seems prosecutors are trying to determine how this thing happened and by me I’d sure consider that maybe Ron Long INTENTIONALLY killed his wife.

As I’m sure they are but it seems that the incident, at least as best as I can ascertain, was a horrible accident. In which case Ronald Long should certainly be charged with manslaughter. The article isn’t clear what will happen next.

The Longs had two children according to a comment below the linked article.

How terribly tragic.

Fine Detroit Mayor Kilpatrick Charged With Twelve Felony Counts

First let me admit I’m not at all sure under what circumstances the fine Mayor of Detroit Kwame Kilpatrick allegedly lied and obstructed justice but it was during a civil case as I ascertain. I will be reading more on this case in the future and this Blog will follow it closely.

Second, big kudos to Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy who decided to prosecute the fine Mayor for his outrageous lies and her wonderful speech that so moved me to tears.

For it would seem that Mayor Kilpatrick thought his fine self to be above such trivial matters as telling the truth under oath and so he denied having a romantic relationship with his Aide, Christine Beatty, ALSO charged with these crimes.

Because after Kilpatrick, evidently following the lead of our first black President Clinton, lied under oath in a civil trial, hundreds and hundreds of steamy text messages to his aide were published by the Detroit Free Press.

So he had NO romantic relationship with his Aide yet he’d been sending these often x-rated text messages to the same woman he’d denied having an affair with?

Kwame Kilpatrick

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and former aide Christine Beatty have pleaded not guilty to charges they commited perjury about a romantic relationship between them during a court case last year. Kilpatrick and Beatty, who have been released on bail, are facing 12 felony charges related to the alleged lying under oath.

Hey, lying sack of crap Mayor Kilpatrick, everybody has a point and even the city of Detroit has a point. You’ve spent millions of taxpayer dollars entertaining yourself and your lover, ordering Detroit cops to help cover your romantic trysts and flipping that city the bird. And it’s no mind that your mother is head of the Congressional Black Caucus. Everybody has a point where it’s time to pull down an arrogant son of a bitch who doesn’t have enough sense to keep a low profile.

Thank you Kym Worthy. Your speech about the value of justice and the cost when one, especially one with so much power, flaunts its destruction, was precious.

We’ll be keeping up with this case Kym. Don’t let us down.

Minnesota Dept. of Homeland Security Office Full of Poop

We end with this “True Crime” although we’re not sure if pooping in a government office is a crime. Such an act might be considered by some to be an act of heroism.

ST. PAUL, Minn., March 19 (UPI) -- Someone with an urge to purge took it out on the Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management office in downtown St. Paul, police said.

An unknown man defecated in several rooms Friday afternoon and left on foot before an officer arrived, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Tuesday. Based on the suspect's description, he appeared to be homeless, a police spokesman said.

The more telling detail about this story is the fact that this taxpayer paid office was left completely unlocked, open to anyone who wanted to enter.

Your gubmint in action.

FOCUS ON Stacy Peterson

His third wife died in the bathtub, a healthy woman in a dried tub, her hair covered in blood and bruises covering her body. The Illinois state cops called it an accident! Now Savio's body is due to be exhumed because, as it would turn out, the fine Drew Peterson had yet ANOTHER missing wife! He tells us she phoned him to tell him she's leaving for another man. Yet she left her two young children behind?

And no one's yet been able to find Drew Peterson's first two wives as of this writing.

Who's been letting Drew Patterson get away with murder?
