Pastor Killed

Oklahoma Pastor Slain In “Horrific” Scene By Associated Press August 26, 2009 8:13 am The scene inside a small Pentecostal churchwhere a pastor was slain was “horrific,” an Oklahoma district attorneysaid Tuesday, calling it the most brutal he has seen in nearly 20 years as a prosecutor. Police have released scant information about the killing of 61-year-old Carol Daniels, whose body was found Sunday inside the Christ Holy Sanctified Church, a weather-beaten building on a rundown block near downtown Anadarko. A preliminary autopsy deemed Daniels’ death a homicide caused by “multiple sharp force injuries,” said Cherokee Ballard, spokeswoman for the state Medical Examiner’s office. She declined to discuss further details. “I’ve prosecuted over 50 murders,” District Attorney Bret Burns said. “This is the most horrific crime scene I’ve ever witnessed.” He declined to elaborate, saying he did not want to jeopardize the investigation. With little official word on the grisly killing, rumors in the town were swirling as people wondered what motivated the crime and who was responsible. Burns has called for a meeting of local pastors on Wednesday. State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown also would not say anything about the time of Daniels’ death, a possible motive or what evidence was collected at the scene. Authorities do not have any suspects, she said, and were offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. “Right now we have more questions than answers,” Brown said. “The few answers we do have, we want to hold on to. That might help us in the long run.” Daniels made the 60-mile trek from Oklahoma City every week to preach, even though the church had no regular congregation. Ezra Randle, Oklahoma overseer for the Christ Holy Sanctified Church, said Daniels had been traveling to Anadarko for four or five years and 85 percent of the time, she made the trip alone. “I tried to ask her why she kept doing it and she would say until God releases me, I will go down there,” said Randle, pastor of Grace Temple Christ Holy Sanctified Church in Elk City. Icey Simmons, 85, a resident of the Silver Crest Nursing Center, said she would see Daniels nearly every weekend when Simmons would go to the church for Sunday service or when Daniels would drop by. “She and I would just go down there and pray by ourselves,” she said. “I can’t believe it. “She was just as sweet as she could be, never did anything to hurt nobody.” Pastor Steve Palczynsky of the Cedar Hill Church of God in Anadarko said lack of official word is disconcerting and that he’s taken extra steps to make sure his church is secure. “The first thing I thought about, being human, was that maybe it was a serial killer and maybe he has something out for preachers, but the Lord takes care of us,” he said. Tracy Schumpert, pastor of the town’s First United Methodist Church, said members of the local clergy will meet Wednesday with Burns to discuss the case. “It’s still very new, and we don’t know what to think,” she said. “Anything that happens like that, it’s a community concern.”

Man took over $400,000 from two New York women

The used car salesman seemed just like the big shot teenager Rose Marie Anglade knew in Haiti.

Paul Francois owned his dealership and property in Miami’s Little Haiti, and he parked a fleet of flashy luxury cars in front of a suburban home worth half a million dollars. “I just need someone to get married to,” he crooned to Anglade when the old acquaintances from Port-au-Prince met again in 2007.

She thought their unexpected reunion was just what she needed: Someone to take care of her, as a single mother with a son in the Army and a daughter fresh out of high school.

Instead, police say, Francois took Anglade for everything she had — while he was swindling another Haitian immigrant he had also promised to marry. He allegedly stole some $400,000 from the two New York women.

Francois, 55, of Davie, was being held Thursday on $125,000 bond at the Broward County jail on fraud and theft charges. A lawsuit Anglade filed against Francois in September 2008 also is pending.

Anglade, 50, was overjoyed to see Francois’ mug shot posted online after his arrest Wednesday. His sweet talk had left her penniless and facing eviction from the Miramar house she had bought with him, she said in a phone interview Thursday.

The dental office assistant from the Astoria section of Queens in New York went to Florida on vacation in 2007 to celebrate her daughter’s graduation. She had left Haiti for New York 30 years earlier, and she wanted to see the cultural heart for Haitians in Miami. A stroll through the neighborhood brought her to Francois’ dealership, and she recognized him instantly.

The pair talked by phone every night after Anglade returned to New York. She soon began flying back to Miami every two weeks to be with Francois.

“He told me, ‘I’m going to marry you, you won’t need to go to work,’ because he had the business,” she said. “It was, ‘Honey, honey, honey,’ every day.”

He persuaded her to sell her home and buy a house in Florida from his brother, who was behind on his mortgage, according to the arrest affidavit. Then they opened a joint account, where she deposited more than $287,000 — her savings plus the proceeds from the sale of her New York home.

When Anglade gave Francois a $17,500 check for the mortgage, he deposited it into his own account and then forged her signature on other checks as he emptied their joint account, police said. Anglade said she didn’t know Francois was stealing from her until she bounced a check in October 2007. The bank informed her that the joint account was overdrawn.

“He told me that he moved the money because he was afraid that I wouldn’t like Florida and would take the money back with me to New York,” Anglade said. “He never denied it.”

Anglade also didn’t know that while she was abandoning her life in New York to join Francois, he was wooing another woman.

“He had one week for me and then one week for her,” Anglade said. “He was engaged to both of us.”

Sheila Brissault of Elmont, N.Y., said she was introduced to Francois by his brother, a New York City cab driver, in June 2007. Brissault told authorities that over the phone, Francois claimed to be a real estate agent and persuaded the nurse from Jacmel, Haiti, to come to Florida with $50,000 for a down payment on a home.

When she visited Florida, Francois allegedly persuaded her to apply for a $50,000 line of credit on her New York home and open a joint account with him.

The 43-year-old Brissault, also a single mother with a daughter graduating high school, said she trusted Francois because he produced the right documents and told her he was looking for a wife.

“He kept talking,” she said by telephone from New York. “I thought I would never get married until my daughter graduated, and when I met this man was exactly when my daughter graduated.”

She discovered she had been swindled after Francois asked her to sell her Long Island home. She didn’t, but he had already cleaned out the joint account, according to the arrest affidavit.

Brissault and Anglade told authorities that Francois threatened them each with violence when they demanded he return their money. Anglade said Francois punched her in the face after one confrontation. Brissault said Francois threatened to kill her and her children.

“He’s nice until he gets the money, then immediately he turns into the werewolf,” said Joe Pappacoda, the attorney representing both women.

Francois’ attorney, Leonard Fenn, did not immediately return phone or e-mail messages Thursday.

Anglade and her 20-year-old daughter still live in their foreclosed Florida home, pawning belongings to pay the bills and relying on handouts for grocery money. Anglade is unemployed, and said Francois intended to leave her homeless with no way to support herself.

He sold cars, but he wouldn’t give her one to look for a job, she said.

“He said he loved me so much, he just didn’t want me to go anywhere by myself, so no car for me,” said Anglade . “He said, ‘Oh, honey, those people in Florida are no good.’ He just didn’t want me to talk to no one so I wouldn’t know what was going on with him.”

Another child has been injured. This time a little girl has been shot accidentally from a gun that was kept in her home. Her mom has been arrested and bail was set.  It seems that the child is doing better but we need to know how the other child got the weapon..if in fact that is how the child was shot.  No one seemed to know at the time of the accident..Please pray for the family and the children..

Arkeisha PerezThe mother of a 5-year-old girl who was shot accidentally at an Orlando apartment complex has been arrested, police said Wednesday.

Arkeisha Perez, 26, was charged with aggravated child abuse, allowing a minor access to a weapon with injury and unsafe storage of a firearm, police said. Her other children were placed with relatives.

Exactly what happened is unclear. The girl’s father, Jarvis Sims, told reporters that another child may have shot her. That could not be confirmed.

Jazyire Emery Sims, 5, who is in critical condition, was standing near the front door of her mother’s home at Willow Bend Apartments when a bullet pierced her body about 11 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

After the shooting, the girl’s mother and uncle began to drive her to the hospital. But after a few miles, they flagged down an Orange County deputy on Hiawassee Road at Ironwood Drive, police Lt. Darryl Braunskill said.

An ambulance was called to the intersection and took the child to the hospital. She was taken into emergency surgery and was recovering Wednesday at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

When Jazyire is released, she will be placed in a foster home, Department of Children and Families spokeswoman Carrie Hoeppner said.

Perez was brought from the hospital to Orlando police headquarters, questioned for two hours and arrested about 4 p.m., police said. She was booked into the Orange County Jail with bail set at $2,700.

Few residents were outside at the complex Wednesday morning. Some men surveyed the door to the apartment where the child was shot, even as large cockroaches crawled on the walls and the pavement nearby.

“It’s too close to home,” said Alnisa Jackson, 22, who lives with her children and their father in the building next door to where the girl was shot. “It’s not safe.”

Jackson’s 3-year-old daughter often played with the injured child.

Another neighbor, Anthony Miles, sat outside his apartment smoking cigarettes. He was home Tuesday night when the police arrived but didn’t hear the gunshot.

“I was at home, and I heard the cops,” Miles said. “Then someone knocked on my door and said the baby’s been shot.”

Miles said the apartment complex is dangerous, and he tries not to go outside at night.

“Right now is the safest time to be outside,” he said. “I’m scared to come outside at night. It’s just a bad neighborhood.”

Investigators are trying to determine how many people were in the apartment when the shooting occurred. Jazyire has three siblings. A judge Wednesday ordered them placed with a relative, Hoeppner said. One of the children was home when Jazyire was shot. The other two were with a family member.

Witnesses at the apartment complex have not provided any leads in the case, Braunskill said.

“We don’t have any suspects,” Braunskill said. “You got people in the apartment complex and something happened. They have to have some sort of idea of what happened or saw what was going on at the apartment.”

He said the lack of cooperation from witnesses is frustrating.

“It hinders us from doing our job and puts the general public at risk,” Braunskill said. “We’ve got one or more subjects that has hit a 5-year-old girl with a bullet, and they are out there running around with a firearm.”

Dog eat your homework? Man claims his cat downloads porn

> Posted by Barbara Hijek on August 7, 2009 07:15 AM

We once worked with a guy who said he was late to work because his cat peed on his alarm clock and shorted it out.

But we like this cat story better.

Keith R. Griffin, 48, of Jensen Beach has a cat.

And you know what that pussy does?

Downloads porn!

So Griffin says.

But cops weren’t convinced.

Instead, they charged Griffin with 10 counts of possession of child pornography after a detective found more than 1,000 child pornographic images on his computer, reports TCPalm.com.

Griffin gave it a good shot.

He told detectives he would leave his computer on and his cat would jump on the keyboard.

And when he returned there will be strange material downloaded.

Griffin was in Martin County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.

Maybe the cat is now busy poking friends on Facebook.

This is what we call kitty porn.

Woman has ‘Keith’ on her crotch, cocaine in her ‘coochy’ > Posted by Barbara Hijek on August 7, 2009 06:30 AM If we had a chance to do our life over, we’d be cop reporters in the Panhandle. Honest. Just so we could write about a woman with ‘Keith’ on her crotch and cocaine in her ‘coochy.’

 

Yeah, we’re blogging about Niceville again. Police pulled Rahkia Marie Anderson, 18, of Fort Walton Beach, over when they noticed that she didn’t have tag lights on her 1987 Chevrolet truck, reports the Northwest Florida Daily News. She told the officer she knew one of her passengers had marijuana on him because she had smoked with him earlier. The officer found a cut green straw in Anderson’s purse — the kind that could be used to snort coke.

 

 Anderson — Miss Honesty — ‘fessed up. She told the officer the straw wouldn’t test positive for cocaine, but it would for Xanax. So the police busted her for possession of drug paraphernalia. Her arrest report noted she had some interesting tattoos. A butterfly on her left ear, five stars on her left hand and “Keith” on her crotch area. While Anderson was in the Niceville Police Department holding cell, she was overheard talking to one of the passengers who had been in her truck. She told the passenger that she “had cocaine” in her “coochy,” the report said. When officers questioned her about her statement, Anderson removed a clear plastic baggy from inside her underwear. Sure enough, the white powdery substance tested positive for cocaine. Anderson ‘fessed up some more and said her intention was to sell the drug. Better check that next batch of coke. You don’t know where it’s been. Photo: Rahkia Marie Anderson, Northwest Florida Daily News

GOMA, Congo — It was around 11 p.m. when armed men burst into Kazungu Ziwa’s hut, put a machete to his throat and yanked down his pants. Mr. Ziwa is a tiny man, about four feet, six inches tall. He tried to fight back, but said he was quickly beaten down.

For years, eastern Congo has been a reservoir of atrocities. More Photos >

“Then they raped me,” he said. “It was horrible, physically. I was dizzy. My thoughts just left me.”

For years, the thickly forested hills and clear, deep lakes of eastern Congo have been a reservoir of atrocities. Now, it seems, there is another growing problem: men raping men.

According to Oxfam, Human Rights Watch, United Nations officials and several Congolese aid organizations, the number of men who have been raped has risen sharply in recent months, a consequence of joint Congo-Rwanda military operations against rebels that have uncapped an appalling level of violence against civilians.

Aid workers struggle to explain the sudden spike in male rape cases. The best answer, they say, is that the sexual violence against men is yet another way for armed groups to humiliate and demoralize Congolese communities into submission.

The United Nations already considers eastern Congo the rape capital of the world, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to hear from survivors on her visit to the country next week. Hundreds of thousands of women have been sexually assaulted by the various warring militias haunting these hills, and right now this area is going through one of its bloodiest periods in years.

The joint military operations that began in January between Rwanda and Congo, David and Goliath neighbors who were recently bitter enemies, were supposed to end the murderous rebel problem along the border and usher in a new epoch of cooperation and peace. Hopes soared after the quick capture of a renegade general who had routed government troops and threatened to march across the country.

But aid organizations say that the military maneuvers have provoked horrific revenge attacks, with more than 500,000 people driven from their homes, dozens of villages burned and hundreds of villagers massacred, including toddlers thrown into open fires.

And it is not just the rebels being blamed. According to human rights groups, soldiers from the Congolese Army are executing civilians, raping women and conscripting villagers to lug their food, ammunition and gear into the jungle. It is often a death march through one of Africa’s lushest, most stunning tropical landscapes, which has also been the scene of a devastatingly complicated war for more than a decade.

“From a humanitarian and human rights perspective, the joint operations are disastrous,” said Anneke Van Woudenberg, a researcher for Human Rights Watch.

The male rape cases span several hundred miles and possibly include hundreds of victims. The American Bar Association, which runs a sexual violence legal clinic in Goma, said that more than 10 percent of its cases in June were men.

Brandi Walker, an aid worker at Panzi hospital in nearby Bukavu, said, “Everywhere we go, people say men are getting raped, too.”

But nobody knows the exact number. Men here, like anywhere, are reluctant to come forward. Several who did said they instantly became castaways in their villages, lonely, ridiculed figures, derisively referred to as “bush wives.”

Since being raped several weeks ago, Mr. Ziwa, 53, has not shown much interest in practicing animal medicine, his trade for years. He limps around (his left leg was crushed in the attack) in a soiled white lab coat with “veterinaire” printed on it in red pen, carrying a few biscuit-size pills for dogs and sheep.

“Just thinking about what happened to me makes me tired,” he said.

The same is true for Tupapo Mukuli, who said he was pinned down on his stomach and gang-raped in his cassava patch seven months ago. Mr. Mukuli is now the lone man in the rape ward at Panzi hospital, which is filled with hundreds of women recovering from rape-related injuries. Many knit clothes and weave baskets to make a little money while their bodies heal.

But Mr. Mukuli is left out.

“I don’t know how to make baskets,” he said. So he spends his days sitting on a bench, by himself.

The male rape cases are still just a fraction of those against women. But for the men involved, aid workers say, it is even harder to bounce back.

“Men’s identity is so connected to power and control,” Ms. Walker said.

And in a place where homosexuality is so taboo, the rapes carry an extra dose of shame.

“I’m laughed at,” Mr. Mukuli said. “The people in my village say: ‘You’re no longer a man. Those men in the bush made you their wife.’ ”

Aid workers here say the humiliation is often so severe that male rape victims come forward only if they have urgent health problems, like stomach swelling or continuous bleeding. Sometimes even that is not enough. Ms. Van Woudenberg said that two men whose penises were cinched with rope died a few days later because they were too embarrassed to seek help. Castrations also seem to be increasing, with more butchered men showing up at major hospitals.

Last year, Congo’s rape epidemic appeared to be easing a bit, with fewer cases reported and some rapists jailed. But today, it seems like that thin veneer of law and order has been stripped away. The way villagers describe it, it is open season on civilians.

Muhindo Mwamurabagiro, a tall, graceful woman with long, strong arms, explained how she was walking to the market with friends when they were suddenly surrounded by a group of naked men.

“They grabbed us by the throat and threw us down and raped us,” she said.

Worse, she said, one of the rapists was from her village.

“I yelled, ‘Father of Kondo, I know you, how can you do this?’ ”

One mother said a United Nations peacekeeper raped her 12-year-old boy. A United Nations spokesman said that he had not heard that specific case but that there were indeed a number of new sexual abuse allegations against peacekeepers in Congo and that a team was sent in late July to investigate.

Congolese health professionals are becoming exasperated. Many argue for a political solution, not a military one, and say Western powers should put more pressure on Rwanda, which is widely accused of preserving its own stability by keeping the violence on the other side of the border.

“I understand the world feels guilty about what happened in Rwanda in 1994,” said Denis Mukwege, the lead doctor at Panzi Hospital, referring to Rwanda’s genocide. “But shouldn’t the world feel guilty about what’s happening in Congo today?”

Every Christian’s Favorite Secret Sin

By Stuart McDonald August 6, 2009 9:30 am

379367_7377

{Authors Note: This was an intensely personal post for me to write. This is something I have struggled for over 13 years. I feel this topic is taboo in the church but needs to be addressed. This will undoubtedly hit a lot of people the wrong way, but that’s fine. I feel it entirely necessary to share. Be warned, this is a mature topic.}

Christian men and women do it. Some nearly every day. So do teenagers. Singles enjoy it. Married folks do it as well. The elders of the church and pastors might even do it. Yet no one wants to talk about it. Most won’t admit to it. The church rarely addresses it.

I’m talking about masturbation. Yes, that’s right… Christians masturbate. Whether we use a dildo, a blow up doll, a vibrator, or your left and right hand, the result is the same. Anytime we cause ourselves to orgasm in a manner outside of God’s original intent, we sin. This sin, masturbation, has turned into the Christian’s dirty little secret.

Our hands were designed by God to build. But we’ve perverted that purpose to bring us a temporal pleasure. Our hands were not made to beat our bodies or to stimulate ourselves to the point of orgasm, where, as men, we spill our seed, our future family. When we ejaculate, we put our future family in the toilet, on a towel or tissue, or in our pants. In doing so, we say to God,”I don’t value the ability you’ve given me to perpetuate a Godly legacy.” We fail realize there are children who will never have been born all because we wanted to pleasure ourselves.

Most view masturbation as a private sin, done where no one can see. However, as believers, God dwells inside each one of us. Our bodies become His temple. Do you think the Holy Spirit turns a blind eye when we decide to gratify our fleshly urges, lusts, and desires?  Do you think God “takes 5” when we decide to take our 5 fingers and bring ourselves to an orgasm? Absolutely not! He is forced to sit and watch while we sin! Can you imagine how that breaks his heart?

In the Old Testament, you would either die or be cut off from the Presence of God if the sacrifice you presented was damaged or unacceptable. While we no longer bring sacrifices in that manner, because Jesus Christ was the ultimate sacrifice and atonement for our sins, the principle remains the same. We are to “offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, dedicated to God and pleasing to Him.” We’d be foolish to expect God to accept our sacrifice when we’ve chosen to pervert God’s design by violating our own bodies.

And yet, day after day, week after week, we offer the sacrifice of praise and worship with clapping and lifting of our hands. We lay our hands on others during prayer. We hold our Bibles & turn the pages of His Word. We pat, dap, hug & shake hands with our friends; blessing and encouraging them in the Lord. Then we leave our churches, our small group meetings, and go home and pleasure ourselves with those very same hands!

“Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? Who shall stand in his holy presence? He who has CLEAN HANDS and a pure heart.” How can we have clean hands when they’ve been used to beat ourselves, to defile and demean our own bodies? Our bodies, His dwelling place, are no longer clean. We say our hearts & minds are set towards God, yet behind closed doors, it’s a different story.

The good news is, like every temptation we face, God has made a way of escape. You have to examine when you’re most likely to fall into the trap and avoid those situations at all cost. Identify both your emotional and circumstantial triggers. It could be when you’re lonely, tired, angry, or sad. Maybe it’s late at night flipping through the channels, or surfing the net, when you’re bored. Perhaps it’s after you’ve had a fight with a friend or a long day at work. Whatever the case, it’s crucial to recognize when you’re vulnerable. You need to find accountability with another person of the same sex. You are not the only person facing this issue. If you need to get some software, XXX Church, based in Las Vegas has incredible resources.

Do whatever it takes! You can never fall off the edge if you don’t get close. If you see your emotional and circumstantial triggers arise, quickly turn in the other direction. Please know I am not condemning anyone. I have been there, done that. Literally. It’s only by the grace of God, day by day, that I don’t fall. I am making myself an open book to you.

I have been pondering the same thing.  This peace submitted by one of my close friends is an interesting topic. LOVE..I must be honest and share that I think I have been chasing it all of my adult life. LOVE..someone to hold me when I am scare..someone to caress me when I am lonely..someone to assure me that all will be well when I am uncertain..someone to be amazed by every inch of me..adoring the very dimples on even my thighs..(I am a big girl) smile..

I have hoped that one day a man will enter my life and be the missing link but until then I live..to the fullest..not down trotten..not angry..not forgetting to every breath as a gift from God. I will live everyday to the absolute fullest..if that MAN never arrives..I will have lived everyday to the absolute extreme..AND Love should it tarry will be a welcome guess in my home…

For now the LOVE of GOD is usual and eternal. He never stops loving us even when we forget that He is there..

What is True Love?

Posted on August 6, 2009 by theoraclemag

love canvasWhat we could use in the world today more then anything else is love. True love, real love. If mankind had authentic love for one another, war, world hunger, homelessness, abuse, crime and so on would all come to an end. Love begins and ends with GOD. He is the author. It was created by him and out of his nature. When we, as Christians were filled with the Holy Spirit, he gave us the spirit of love as a gift. It is his desire that we share this gift with all that we come in contact with. We are most like GOD when we show love. In truth The Bible records the greatest love story ever written, GOD’s unconditional love for his that sent his “Sun” to die on the cross (John 3:16; 1 John 4:10).

Love is more then attribute of GOD. It is in fact apart of his nature (Dueut. 7:7-8). According to the Bible “GOD is love,” that is he is the personification of love (1 Jn 4:8, 16). This type of love out reaches human understanding (Eph. 3:19). The love of GOD is everlasting (Jer. 31:3), free (Hos. 14:4) sacrificial (Jn 3:16), and enduring to the end (Jn 13:1).

In GOD’s Word there are two different Greek words that mean “to love.” The word phileo means “to have ardent affection and feeling,” a brotherly love. This is why Phillidphia is known as “the city of brotherly love.” The word “agapao” means “to have esteem or high regard”

GOD blessed Each of us with spiritual gifts. Shamefully many of us use these gifts to glorify ourselves. According to 1 Corinthians 13:2 this has nothing to do with love. But then in verse 3 of the same chapter Paul teaches that giving with out true love is pointless. If we give to feed our pride, we are giving in vain!

Remember we said “GOD is love” and love is his nature. 1 Cor. 13: 4-7 list the Characteristics of love which so happen to be the characteristics of GOD. Love “is patient,” meaning it suffers long with people.; no matter the evil and the injury done by a person; no matter the neglect from a loved one, without anger. Love “is kind,” meaning it is good, helpful and giving. It does not hurt. Love does not envy; it does not get Jealous. Love does not boast; does not brag or seek honor or recognition. Love is not proud or arrogant and conceited. It’s not about thinking your better then others. Love is not rude. It is full of order and control. It does not shame itself. Love is not self seeking, meaning its not selfish. It seeks to serve. Love is not easily angered, not ready to take offense. Not “touchy.” Love keeps no record of wrongs, does not consider the wrong suffered. It suffers the evil done to it and forgets it Love does not delight in evil or take pleasure of the sin of others Love rejoices when the truth is rooted and grounded in a person and among all people. Love Protects and bears all things. The Word protects or bears means both to cover all things and to bear up under all things. Love always trusts. It is completely trusting. It accepts and believes the very best about a person Love always hopes; it never stops hoping. It expects the good to eventfully triumph. Love always preserves. The word preserves is a military word meaning to stand against the attack of an enemy. Love is strong and full of fight.

But are you full of Love?

In Fla. Newlywed Arrested In Alleged Plot To Murder Husband on August 7, 2009 at 5:37 am

Well ladies this is one case that should have ended in divorce.  The bride is going to spend the rest of her life in prison(probably). I can’t imagine why she would want her husband dead accept for money or maybe he was abusive.  Neither of those two reasons seem to be mentioned below.  I can honestly state that there were times in the last marriage that I wished my ex husband would have died . However, I didn’t have the evil within me to see someone to kill him. 

 

Please pray for her and him(her husband).  He will need much support to trust again.  She will need prayer to heal what ever is wrong on the inside of her that pushed her to desire to kill her husband.

Newlywed Murder Plot

A South Florida woman was arrested Wednesday for allegedly hiring an undercover police officer to kill her husband of six months, authorities said.

Dalia Dippolito, 26, was charged with solicitation to commit first-degree murder and taken to the Palm Beach County jailBoynton Beach Police Department spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said. Bond had not yet been set and it was unclear if she had an attorney.

Dippolito gave an informant pictures of her husband, 38-year-old Michael Dippolito, and $1,200 for a hit man to purchase a handgun, according to a probable cause affidavit. She also offered to create an alibi for herself and detailed her husband’s daily schedule.

An undercover officer posing as a hit man called Dippolito on Monday afternoon and arranged a meeting. The officer asked for $3,000 in cash and a key to the couple’s home. The undercover officer later met Dippolito in a pharmacy parking lot and asked if she was sure she wanted her husband killed.

She laughed, according to the according to the affidavit, and said: “I will be very happy.”

Dippolito discussed getaway routes, her home’s security system, the location of her husband on Wednesday and the fee for the task, and the officer again asked if the woman was sure.

“I’m not going to change my mind,” she responded, according to the documents. “I am 5,000 percent sure I want it done. When I set my mind to something, I get it done.”

Authorities staged an elaborate crime scene outside the Dippolito home on Wednesday morning, complete with yellow crime tape and several police vehicles.

“The bottom line is, we wanted her to believe without question that when she arrived that her husband was dead,” Slater said.

Officers then contacted Dippolito at her gym and told her to come to the house. When an officer told Dippolito that her husband was dead, she broke down in tears, a video of the operation shows.

Dippolito was then taken to the Boynton Beach Police Department, where she was told of the investigation and arrested. Michael Dippolito, who was informed of the case Wednesday morning, was also at the police department, as was the undercover officer who Dalia Dippolito believed was going to kill her husband, according to a police news release.

A call to a telephone number listed for Michael Dippolito connected with a signal that sounded like a fax machine. A call to a cell phone number for Dalia Dippolito was unanswered and a message was not immediately returned.

“It seems like it just hasn’t hit him yet,” Slater said of Michael Dippolito. “But the more he thinks about it, the more things that have happened over the past couple months are starting to make sense to him.”

In Sandstone Woman Charged with Murdering Daughter, Uncategorized on August 6, 2009 at 11:04 am
This mom wins the worst mom of the year award. This story is so un-nerving that a mother could kill her own child.  I now see why men frequently compare women to dogs; female dogs sometime kill their own young. 
 
I continue to advocate for safety nets for children of parents of mental illness. When my children were younger I would get upset and not see the good in the social workers that hovered over me.  They were already mothers and had children of their own. They knew how difficult it would be and they were trying to prepare me for the bumps in the road.  I recieved their and now I try to carry the torch to other young mothers. offering advice and support.
 
Please contact your Congressman and tell them Social workers need more funding.  We need them to be able to counsel and support the mothers that maybe in crisis. It is a difficult thing to have to admit that you need help with your child.  It makes a mom feel like a failure.  I know, I felt that way and it was difficult to become confident in my craft(mothering).

Sandstone Woman Charged with Murdering Daughter

by Mike Gainor

Three years after the death of 10-year-old Lakesha Victor, Pine County investigators have mounted a murder case against her mother.

A Sandstone woman Ludusky Sue Hotchkiss, 29, of Sandstone, formerly of Hinckley, has been charged with second-degree murder and three counts of second-degree manslaughter in the death of her 10-year-old daughter on Aug. 20, 2006

Hotchkiss was accused of felony neglect and endangerment for failing to provide her severely-disabled daughter with proper nutrition, health care or supervision, which led directly to her death.

Charges were filed against Hotchkiss in Pine County District Court on July 15.

According to police reports, Pine County Sheriff’s Department deputies were dispatched to a home in Hinckley on the night of Aug. 20, 2006 on a report that a child was not breathing. In the residence, Victor’s body was lying on the sofa next to Hotchkiss. Her arms and legs were stiff, and blood had pooled in the lowest parts of her body, indicating that she had been deceased for some time. Hotchkiss went out to the front lawn where she was “crying and vomiting on the ground,” and told a deputy that her home had been broken into the night before, and now felt “like she was raped too.”

She asked a deputy to take pictures of bruises on her body. When the deputy replied that they had to complete the death investigation first, Hotchkiss left the premises and did not return.

In the Hotchkiss residence

Police determined that four other children, ages ranging from 2 to 11, lived on the premises with Hotchkiss. No other adults lived there.

They learned that Victor had suffered from cerebral palsy, seizure disorder, autism, and had used a feeding tube since 2005. She was not able to talk, and was very limited in other forms of communication.

In the girl’s room, deputies found two bare mattresses on the floor, which was strewn with clothes, dirty dishes and other items. In an autopsy, medical examiners determined that the child had been suffering from pneumonia, malnutrition and dehydration.

They also found a bottle of seizure medication, dated March 18, 2005, with 24 pills inside. Victor was supposed to be receiving this medication twice a day.

Medical records also showed that when the girl was last seen by a doctor on May 9, 2006 she weighed 47 pounds. At the time of her death on Aug. 20, she weighed 31 pounds, a 34-percent weight loss.

Victor was prescribed eight cans of Pediasure a day to maintain her nutrition. Records showed that 116 cases of 24 cans of Peidasure were delivered to the Hotchkiss residence between March 17, 2005 and April 12, 2006, enough for 348 days. However, no Pediasure was ordered or delivered to the Hotchkiss residence in May or June of 2006. Eight cases of Peidasure – enough for 24 days – were delivered on July 7. No Pediasure was delivered in August.

A personal care attendant was supposed to be looking after Victor on the night of her death, but though his timesheet recorded he was working at that time, he admitted he was not there that day. Hotchkiss’ son told police that the attendant was rarely at the house, though the attendant had submitted timesheets purportedly showing he had been working most days. A neighbor reported to police that Hotchkiss had said that she signed off on the attendant’s timesheets, and then she and he split the money he received.

An assessor from Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals visited Hotchkiss and her daughter on Aug. 17 and noted that the girl was dressed in jeans and a sweatshirt even though the weather was hot. Hotchkiss has repeatedly told investigators that Victor “was fine” on that date, three days before her daughter’s death.

The maximum penalty for second-degree murder is 40 years in prison. The maximum penalty for each of the three second-degree manslaughter charges is 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, or both.

Hotchkiss is not in custody at this time. Her first appearance in Pine County Court is scheduled for Sept.29 at 9 a.m.
