Greenville,PA - Ronny Machado and Krystle Weaver were waiting for Heather Turk to come home. Weaver, 20, had called Heather from the apartment the three had been sharing. Heather, her two small children, and her father Thomas Lorigan were out grocery shopping. While Machado and Weaver waited, they unscrewed light bulbs to darken the rooms. They got out their knives. And when Lorigan came in with his daughter and grandchildren, Machado and Weaver struck.
Heather Turk’sapartment was covered with blood last Tuesday morning when police arrived.Dispatchers had gotten a domestic disturbance call to the home at about12:43 a.m. The 911 dispatcher lost the caller, but reported that he or she had heard a female voice andsomeone screaming.
At 12:46 a.m., police foundThomas Lorigan, 44, deadinsidehis daughter’sapartment. He had been repeatedly stabbed. Nearby, Heather Turk was lying bloodyon the kitchen floor. Shehad been stabbedin the rear part of her skull, the knife wound deep into her brain. She was not responsive, but was alive – barely. Her one and two year old babies were in the home, alive andunharmed. A television was missing – as was Heather Turk’s purse, which had contained $440 and her children’s identification cards.
Investigators found out that Machado, 21,and Weaver, 20,had been stayingat Heather Turk’s apartment. But oddly enough, neither Machado or Weaver was present when police arrived at almost one in the morning. More oddly still, the pair had been seen loading their stuff into Krystle Weaver’s Chevy Lumina just before midnight. Oh, and there was thefemalevoice on the 911 call: “Heather, Heather, did you call the police?!” Then just the screams, as Heather was stabbed.
Police arrested the couple on Thursday in Trumbull County, Ohio. Krystle Weaver rolled on her man immediately, at first saying she was in the yard smoking and left when she heard screams. But then she admitted going inside – especially after all her clothes and shoes had blood on them. She admitted that it had been her voice on the 911 tape.
Machado, for his part, spilled. He told police that both he and Weaver had knives, that they had killed Lorigan together and tried to murder Heather Turk, and that Krystle Weaver herself had stabbed Heather in the back of the head. The motive is still under investigation. Theories have ranged from Heather kicking the pair out, toMachado and Weaver needing drug money, to a love triangle, to just plain evil.
We won’t know what Machado’s motive was. OnSaturday night, Ronald Victor Machado saved the cost of a jury trial when he hung himself in the Trumbull County Jail. Machado was awaiting extradition to Mercer County, Pennsylvaniato face multiple charges: one parole violation and multiple felonies in connection with the murder of Thomas Lorigan and the attempted murder of Heather Turk.
Heather Turk remains critical but stable. Her stab wound punctured her cerebellum, so she faces a long rehabilitation if she survives. Her children were placed in emergency temporary custody pending placement with relatives.
Krystle S. Weaveris charged with homicide, attempted homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide and burglary. She remains held without bail in theTrumbull County Jail, awaiting extradition to Pennsylvania. One wonders if she wouldn’t do better to imitate her boyfriend.
