Malabar, FL–Our fellow member, SoUncool, originally posted the story about Dianne Parker in our forums on February 13. Since then, I’ve been digging up more and more information on the batshit crazy psycho.
You see, Dianne Parker, 55, is being accused of killing retired police officer Paul Cadigan. She shot him 6 times, cut up his body with kitchen knives, stuffed the parts in plastic Wal-Mart bags and scattered them in rural Osceola County.
Some call 62-year-old Paul Cadigan a hero. A 20-year veteran of the Hingham Police Department in Massachusetts, he retired with the rank of lieutenant and went on to do private security and investigative work in Massachusetts and Florida. He moved to Palm Bay in 2004 because of health reasons. He had been cited for his police work by the National Association of Police Chiefs in 1981, after he rescued three boys who had been kidnapped from a Cohasset skating rink. He enjoyed boating and spending time with his grandchildren.
Cadigan disappeared on February 1. He had made plans to watch the Superbowl with a friend, but when the friend arrived, he noticed a crock-pot filled with chili simmering in the kitchen, but Cadigan was nowhere to be found. His girlfriend reported him missing on February 5.
Cadigan’s dismembered body was found on February 8. His head, arms and legs had been removed from his body. One of his legs was cut in two. It’s not clear whether all of the parts have been accounted for.
Through cell phone records, detectives in Osceola County tracked down who Cadigan met the day of his disappearance and were led to Dianne Parker’s secluded home in Malabar. Parker is a professional masseuse and it is thought that Cadigan went to her house for a massage on Super Bowl Sunday. Investigators revealed that Cadigan was shot six times before he was dismembered near her massage table. They believe she cut him up because she couldn’t move him any other way. This is where things get tricky. Motive.
What reason did she have? Authorities speculate that Cadigan owed her money. Parker hints that Cadigan came on to her so she emptied her Glock into him. Looking at her mug, I would think she would appreciate it. Hell, that may have been a once in a life-time offer. Whatever the reason, Parker sure as hell tried to cover it up. The home had been cleaned of blood and other matter, but not quite clean enough. Hellloooo? Watch CSI much? Duh. The bullets were recovered from patched holes in the massage room of Parker’s home.
When authorities arrived at her home with a search warrant, Parker said, ‘Arrest me and get it done. Obviously, it happened. Obviously, I’m here. This is profoundly horrid. I can’t live with it; I don’t want to live with it.’ She claims to have multiple personalities and claims she doesn’t remember anything. Maybe they should draw out all the personalities until they find one with a good memory. Dianne Parker is being held without bond, facing charges of first-degree murder, and is said to be on suicide watch. Quick, someone slip her a blade!
Dianne Parker is an odd duck. Neighbors say that she is unstable and has bad mental problems. They said Parker took in the homeless, performed massage services in her home, and practiced the Wiccan religion. Her mother says she hasn’t spoken to her in a decade. Seems they had an argument over Parker allowing pigeons to fly freely through her home. Dianne Parker has a website where she is trying to hawk her Christian music recordings. And, get this, she even started a website called How To Get Even With Your Favorite Perp. Hehhhh….Tags: dismemberment, first-degree murder, Florida
