David RenzCLAY, N.Y. –  David Renz, the 29-year-old man accused of killing a woman and raping her 10-year-old daughter, was beaten while in jail Friday night.

On Thursday night, Renz abducted 47-year-old Lori Bresnahan and her 10-year-old daughter as they were leaving gymnastic class at the Great Northern Mall. After he bound Bresnahan and her daughter, this piece of shit raped the little girl while her mother remained unable to do anything but listen, unable to protect her.

Afterwards, Renz drove the both victims to a rural road where the little girl got to witness Renz stab her mother to death. No one is clear how the little girl escaped from the car, but she did, and ran to the road where a passing motorist found her and summoned help.

Renz fled on foot into some nearby woods, but was quickly located and apprehended by police without a struggle. He immediately requested a lawyer and refused to answer any questions. David Renz was arrested and charged with murder, rape and kidnapping. He is being held in the Onondaga County Justice Center.

One of his supervisors at James Street Wegmans, where Renz has worked since he was a teen, says Renz was regarded as a “trusted” employee and was manager material. However, in January, Renz was charged with possession of child pornography after investigators found about 100 gigabytes of child porn on his personal computer. He was fired from his job and has been unemployed ever since.

Prosecutor’s requested an extension of the time required for grand jury action so investigators could continue going over “numerous items of electric media” for additional evidence. The judge granted the request and Renz was released after agreeing to stay at home at night with an electronic monitor and away from any place where he might encounter children.

Obviously, Renz removed the ankle monitor and investigators are looking into exactly how was able to do so, and how he got around an alert that was supposed to go off if the monitor was removed.

While in custody at the Onondaga County Justice Center Friday, Renz got into fight with other inmates and ended up with a swollen face and a broken nose. Sheriff Kevin Walsh says he will not be moved into another facility, but is now under guard and in protective custody at the jail.

Bresnahan, who did not know Renz, had been a librarian in the Liverpool School District, serving at Willow Field Elementary School, and previously at Chestnut Hill Elementary School. I cannot imagine what her friends and family are going through today, and couldn’t possibly fathom the terror Bresnaham went through at the hands of Renz, forced to listened to him rape her daughter before stabbing her to death.

    The inmates should’ve given him a swollen sac and a broken penis, instead.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    I just tried really hard to feel sorry for him. Instead I now have to take a dump.

  • crimenthusiast

    I don’t feel sorry for him and actually glad that he endured that beating. However, it was nowhere near enough of a punishment for what he did. Waste of a life!

  • I know I will read a lot of ways that this man should be killed here on DD and I don’t care which way you pick, just as long as it’s slow and painful!!!

  • JGo555

    And he is breathing why?

  • VietGrlTrippie

    Piece of shit should have been beaten to death.

  • One inmate should have held him down and another should have removed all of the above with a spork.

  • This is my neck of the woods,I feel so much rage it is undescribable.This motherfucker was out with a ankle bracelet for the possession of child porn,if you have a strong stomach go too News9 or the forums here and read the link I posted.He should of NEVER had the luxury of a free pass till he went too court,whoever the judge is should get thrown off the bench so fucking fast his/her head will be spinning.

    Things need too change in NY when it comes too the Vultures that prey on BABIES and CHILDREN! If this man had a bag of weed or coke he would be under the jail,but he had videos of a 6 and 5 year old getting RAPED anally and vaginally so hes cool give the bastard a ankle monitor and a slap on the wrist.

    I want too string this fucker upside down by his balls and set his ass on fire then I would cut his head off…He does not deserve ANY due justice and he condemned this girl too a lifetime of pain and heartache,a lifetime without here Mom and the theft of her innocence …Bring back HANGINGS I will be the first in line with a rope!

  • The inmate who laid hands on him is now on my christmas list.

  • Damn guards, that’s why they’ll say. But the truth of the matter they weren’t thinking when they were doing the beat down on ‘im.

  • Still no mug on this guy but here’s his high school yearbook photo. I’m sure the inmates were just trying to give him a much needed makeover.

  • I didn’t add that picture in the article because, at the time, it wasn’t verified that was him. Also, from the press conference, police say they are not releasing his picture yet because it would hinder their investigation.

  • sweekymom

    To the inmates who beat the shit out of David Renz: Please finish the job.

  • AliceinChainsman =]

    swollen ass and broken neck.. oh wait thats round 5….Gee he was Management material..Let that one Soak in Folks…

  • AliceinChainsman =]

    it wont be the

  • AliceinChainsman =]

    Make sure you get them Stocking Stuffers!

  • AliceinChainsman =]

    because they wanna reward him for getting the ankle bracelet off..

  • I don’t usually get upset reading these but I’m actually crying for that poor woman and her daughter.

  • Denise williams

    That’s a HS yearbook photo. Fuck. Looks like he’s is 40+ years old in this photo. Hopefully the inmates finish this worthless raping piece of dogshit.

  • Chinchillazilla

    I disagree. That little girl should have the right to face this man someday if that will help her move on.

    But I don’t mind if they want to keep beating him up in the meantime.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Quarters & bars of soap would work…

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Then he’d have had access to normally restricted personal info on applicants… Ages, numbers of children, he’d know when parents would be home. All kinds of info to forward his crimes against kids.

  • sean g

    I think we should all put our money together and give it to the next inmate they can get ahold of this mother fucker and cut his cock off and shove it down his own throatbut make sure and take a blowtorch and cauterized the wond so he does not bleed out then put him on a parade float and shove American flag up his ass on a pole so that every 1 of you sick mother fuckers out there like this guy will no what is coming for you if you even think of taking some little girls innocence from her. After that toss your ass in the lion cage at the new york zoo after not feedimg them for a few days with nothing in your hand but I picture of that poor little girl that you robbed of her life even if you did not kill her and a picture of her mom in the other hand and screm as your ass gets ripped apart piece by piece and eaten to death slow and suffer as long as possible.. and it should be free to the public to come witness this display of justice and that little girl if she should choose have a front row seat and be the one to open the gates to let the loins in to surve you up some tax free justice…scum bag

  • Chixdigme

    The first of many to come, I’m sure.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    It’s a shame he wasn’t beaten to death. Hopefully the other inmates can get another chance and finish the job.

  • Aussie Sabbath

    Don’t forget cigarettes and things that can be made into shivs!

  • JustBrowsingLife

    The inmate justice system failed to bring execution of this POS? Damn it all to hell! I really have slept better knowing that the prisoner justice system was more expedient and exacting than the liberal bleeding hearts that make up our criminal justice system. Rats! Foiled again. Better luck next time fellas. I hope that the prisoners get a second sentencing opportunity. I would type out every cuss word I knew to describe how I feel if I thought I wouldn’t get kicked off disqus by the site monitors.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Yeah. Like some smoldering, salami sized, jagged volcanic rocks that could be inserted in any orifice of Santa’s choosing.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    It will never never never mitigate the irreparable harm this POS inflicted upon her. Emotionally and no doubt physically. We can only hope he pleads guilty to avoid her having to testify or better yet hope he never makes it to trial at all. Next time the convict code may just save her little soul from further damage. One can hope! Can’t one?

  • JustBrowsingLife

    That’s 29? I don’t feel that bad about my last birthday photos now.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Bleeding heart bastards. Hinder investigation my butt! These inmates have TV. They were trying to avoid convict justice. Too bad, so sad, it didn’t work. Thanks for the beautiful editorials on this one Morbid.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Ugh! Now I might just start vomit……*running to toilet!*

  • JustBrowsingLife

    What did the lion do to deserve pus infused poop for dinner?

  • bethied

    I disagree. I’ve been made a victim of some effed up shit in my life and because I know that the justice system will never serve justice, it would give me great pleasure to learn that the person responsible for the trauma I endured was beaten to death. Nothing would give me a greater sense of closure. He got his and he will never again hurt another person or ruin another life.

  • sweekymom

    To add my own thoughts to what JBL and bethied had to say: I don’t see this guy pleading guilty to spare this poor child the trauma of a trial. Not at all. He’s going away to some filthy little hole for the rest of his life and he knows it.
    But before he leaves he wants just a smidgen more fantasy material. And what could be better than to carry away from the courtroom the memory of his wee victim having to sit in a chair and recount, for his pleasure and delectation, everything he did to her and her mother that horrible night? She’s a ten-year-old girl, only time and a shitload of therapy will enable her to move on, facing him in the “halls of justice” is only going to scare her. God willing, she’ll be able to testify from a chair in another room, via CCTV, so she doesn’t actually have to look at his hideous face.
    At this point, I think the best thing for this little girl would be to have her father come home one day and say, “Sweetie, the bad man who hurt you and killed your mommy will never hurt anyone ever again because he is dead. You don’t ever have to worry about him again.”
    Then, when she’s older and better able to cope, she can track down his grave and empty the contents of a mason jar full of piss on it.

  • abbys_mom

    Watch the Black Mirror episode “White Bear”. THAT is exactly what should happen to this man, for the rest of his life.

  • Chinchillazilla

    I was unclear and that’s totally on me. I don’t mean facing him in court. I agree with you that the trial is going to fuck her up too, and the dude is likely not going to want to plead guilty (although I guarantee no matter who his lawyer is, they will not want to try this case and they will try really hard to get him to plead).

    But I think many victims would want (eventually) the ability to come back in another ten or fifteen years, visit him in jail, sit on the other side of that barrier, and tell him to go fuck himself. THEN he could be beaten to death, and then the mason jar of piss.

    I don’t think I was ever abused, but I have several family members who were, by another family member. When their abuser died suddenly, all of them were devastated. Not that he was gone, but that they didn’t get the chance to face him on the topic. None of them ever got to say “Fuck you, you pathetic child-abusing piece of shit.” They wanted more closure than they ever got. So that’s where I’m coming from.

    I don’t mean to belittle anyone else’s opinions or experiences, I just don’t think the other prisoners should take the option to face him away from the victim. It’s not their choice to make.

  • Chinchillazilla

    Lions kill their prey relatively quickly. If we’re talking a slow death, may I suggest death by Komodo dragon? They’ll bite you with their highly bacteria-infested teeth, then fall back and trail you for several days until you finally succumb to gangrene or whatever lovely diseases they’ve given you. Then, when you are too weak to fight back, they move in.

  • Fucking Good! I am glad this was his end!

  • Suzy Sears

    I hate to be the one to say this but once he gets to prison they’ll put him in seg with all the other child rapist this may have been the only chance to kill him. I’d like to thank the prisoners that beat him thanks for trying

  • These are the stories that make me want to go all Dexter on people.

  • techsupp0rt

    Not his end, he’s still alive.

  • Women should be the ones in charge of punishments for sex-crimes against children anyways. We birth them. I’ll be the executioner, I have the stomach for it; along with the clean conscience needed. Fuck the ‘Strong-Male’ persona that is always assumed to be relevant in times of hard crimes/punishments.
    Hell, women/girls/females are the ones that seem to be the ones that deal with the most heinous of all sex crimes; not that boys/(some) men don’t have a few horror stories of their own to share. However, a few public hangings to show that this shit isn’t a fucking game might help make an impact on the mentality that it’s “ok” to just take it from us.
    Why not implement a few of the torture devices from the Spanish Inquisition just for shits and giggles? When we’re done we could put the ‘left-overs’ on public display to show the rest of the little sissy bitches that are getting any ideas that if they are getting an itch to take what they want, they could end up a piece of some annoyed (and employed) woman’s public display of punishment of how not to cross the line with what we consider sacred?

  • Not only that but I’m sending my sister Natalie to haunt his every waking moment. He’s not really going to be very stoked I’m afraid…

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Since he likes forcing his dick into children (and I pray that it’s a teeny, tiny dick for his victim’s sake), I think we should make him dig a nice, deep trench and see how he likes being forcibly violated by a cannonball or ten.

  • hookerpie

    Too bad he didn’t end up with a swollen brain and a broken neck. Them jail boys getting soft. They can do better than that. This man should be tied up and killed by tooth picking.

  • Yeah….I see this now, derp. I wish it had been his end….piece of shit.

  • sweekymom

    The female of the species is deadlier than the male.

  • NY_Mommy

    This happened in my town. I shop at the Wegmans he was fired from. I saw him there tons of times. Of course now I think he was eyeballing my daughter as pedo candy. Kudos to Sheriff Kevin Walsh for getting him the broken nose ass beating he should have gotten from the arresting officers. He said, I’m not sure how he ended up in a cell with another inmate. Usually people with these kind of charges are put alone. I know how Sheriff, thank you. I hope it was the 1st beating of many.

  • Buffettgirl

    Can I break one of the spork tines first?

  • Buffettgirl

    I read this on the news on Friday just before I went out of town. It broke me down. I’m not a cryer, but this one had me undone. While I ache for what the Mother must have endured before her death, that poor baby girl and what she’s going through and will for the rest of her life is killing me. In addition to the sick bastard that did this to them, I blame the Onondaga County Court System… they failed so miserably it’s epic. How in the FUCK did they let this monster out? On an ankle bracelet? Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME??? There is a special circle of hell for the people that are supposed to protect when they turn a blind eye to the danger, shuck common sense and babies get destroyed in the process… and it just got a lot hotter…

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    I can’t stop crying, it’s just so terrible.

  • Buffettgirl

    I so agree with you… I would love nothing more than to have a conversation with my former step-bastard, let him know that he didn’t get away with it, that the people that need to know what he did to me DO know what he did to me… the problem has always been that the fucker is “connected” via Milwaukee to the Chicago “underworld”, he threatened to have my Mom taken out if I ever said a word…(and yes, the connected is real, I’ve done the research on the ones I met) Now that it’s 30+ years later, and I’m not a terrified 8 year old maybe Sniper Boyfriend and I need to mosey on down south to where his geriatric ass is moldering and have a little chit-chat. I might feel WORLDS better after that…

  • Buffettgirl

    You’re right, and it’s a level of OMFG I’ve never even considered… Gack! I’ll bet they DO do shit like that huh? Fucking sick POS’s! Ugh – I feel dirty now, I want another shower and my last one was 3 hours ago!

  • To bad the beating wasn’t fatal.

  • Athena

    We have the highest incarceration rate and numbers in the world and, generally speaking, the harshest sentencing in the Western world… and you think our justice system is filled with “liberal bleeding hearts”?

  • geez and that was what he looked like before the beating.

  • I prefer that you show the “left overs” to the death row inmates waiting their turn for such monstrous crimes.

  • Goat Meat

    I cannot even begin to imagine the terror that mother faced while tied up in that car as her young daughter was being attacked, it makes me sick to my stomach. Have you seen the picture of the guy? He’s on other pages…looks like a retard.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    You are correct when touting those impressive numbers. However, the sheer volume has only recently been escalated by nonviolent drug offenders being rounded up in droves. The incarceration rates of violent offenders are a travesty. I believe that if we would adopt an accountability system of justice by adhering to a sentencing mandate, eliminate all plea bargains, endless appeals processe and more stringent parole requirements, criminals would think twice before breaking the law let alone repeating their crimes. We could als close the gaping loop holes that the really bad guys seem to escape justice. I would bet my last thin dime that this was not this pig of a man’s first attempt or success in this type of crime. Most of these types of heathens have previous experiences with the justice system and are not deterred by the previous treatment or sentences they experiences at the hands of our justice system.

  • JustBrowsingLife

    Amen! I like your thinking.

  • The perfect punishment…let him go free…after plucking his eyes out,and snatching his testicles off ….with out rendering medical care or aide .

  • Firecat

    Picture a woman who spent 16 years, doing all sorts of really nasty stuff for our Uncle Sam, coupled with extensive training in martial arts (since the age of 3), neurotoxins, weaponry & espionage. Her daughter is assaulted by a man she’d known since childhood. The young man’s mother is very close with local law enforcement and they do little to “protect and serve” the daughter of the woman. It’s almost 3 years later, the young man meets a woman he’d never seen before. Off they went to some secluded little place, where no one would bother them. In fact, the accepted belief was it was his idea. The reality of his situation hit him when his ordeal male the male antagonist of the movie, “Hard Candy,” seem as the man in the movie was enjoying a pleasant picnic. Yes, that young man – who is still alive – will NEVER touch another woman again – especially since his hands where burnt beyond any recognizable form of usage – Then again, his sexual desires are sure to be at an all-time low, given his additional – not quite so surgical, or voluntary – orchiectomy.

    Here’s a side note to all you sick perverted guys out there… Not all women are easy to manhandle. There are some you will regret ever knowing. This woman was one example. I know several others.

    beat the fucker ever day ten times a day.

  • David Renz, a 29-year-old accused of stabbing a school librarian to death and raping a 10-year-old girl has been indicted on first-degree murder charges by a grand jury in Onondaga County.

    He is facing a 37-count indictment with charges including first-and second-degree murder, first-and second-degree kidnapping, predatory sexual assault, predatory sexual assault against a child, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree menacing, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth-degree and possessing a sexual performance by a child.

    Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick said at a news conference this morning he will seek a maximum penalty of life without parole for Renz.

    District Attorney William Fitzpatrick says the grand jury found that Renz approached Bresnahan and the ten-year-old child in the mall parking lot, threatening them with an air gun. Fitzpatrick says Renz forced them into Bresnahan’s car, and forced her to drive to a remote part of the parking lot. At that point, Renz allegedly bound both with plastic ties and sexually assaulted the ten-year-old girl.

    Investigators say Renz then drove Bresnahan’s car to Verplank Road in Clay, where he pulled over, and got caught in the snow. When he attempted to tie Bresnahan to the passenger seat head rest, Fitzpatrick says she created a diversion so that the ten-year-old could escape the car. The DA says there is no doubt that without her courageous battle against Renz, she and the child would be both dead.

    “The one thing that I did take away from it is that, Lori died really saving Jane Doe. There’s no question that she attempted to distract Renz so that little Jane could get away,” said William Fitzpatrick, Onondaga County District Attorney.

    We also learned that police found child pornography inside Renz’s home that they say he based this attack on, and they intend to prove at trial that this was an intentional murder. The District Attorney was firm in saying that his office will accept nothing less than life in prison for Renz’s alleged crimes.–kidnapping–and-rape-charges/

  • Why put this scum in protective custody?? Let the other inmates finish the job. Set some mood lighting and put on some Barry White so they can all get in the mood. Maybe they will save the tax payers some money and rape this piece of shit to death like he so desperately deserves.

  • Renz pleads guilty… for now

    David Renz has been promised a lifetime in prison after admitting today to the murder of Liverpool school librarian Lori Bresnahan and the sexual abuse of a 10-year-old girl.

    But that plea could be withdrawn if federal prosecutors decide to seek the death penalty against Renz for the fatal carjacking, said County Court Judge Thomas J. Miller.

    Renz, 29, admitted raping the girl after using a knife to cut off her clothing. He also admitted stabbing Bresnahan multiple times and attempting to strangle her.

    Renz said in a prepared statement he did not know what caused him to commit such savagery.

    “I’m truly sorry for my actions and I’m prepared to accept the consequences for them,” Renz said.

    Renz pleaded guilty this morning to first-degree murder and predatory sexual assault against a child. He was promised a sentence of life in prison without parole on the murder conviction and 25 years to life as a sex offender for the assault charge.

    Both sentences will run concurrently, or at the same time, Miller said.

    “Under this agreement, you would never be released from prison,” the judge told Renz.

    One motivation for Renz to plead guilty was the hope that it would get federal prosecutors to back off on possibly pursuing the death penalty, said Federal Public Defender Lisa Peebles, who was in court for the plea.

    In May, the U.S. Attorney’s Office notified Renz’s lawyers that they were considering indicting him on a federal carjacking charge and whether to pursue the death penalty against him.

    “It was a big reason why he pled,” Peebles said. “There were other reasons too – he wanted closure. But we felt this was the best way to avoid the death penalty.”

    Bresnahan’s family has said they wanted today’s guilty plea to be the final disposition of the murder and sexual abuse charges, Peebles said.

    Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney John Duncan wouldn’t comment on the impact Renz’s plea might have on the death penalty decision.
