Javon Tyrek RogersPOUGHKEEPSIE, NY – A 20-year-old suspected serial burglar has been accused of murdering a 99-year-old woman in her home.

Late Friday night, police charged Javon Tyrek Rogers with the murder of Fannie Gumbinger. A home aid worker found Gumbinger dead inside her home early Wednesday.

Police have not released exactly how Gumbinger died, aside from saying that she suffered multiple injuries.

Investigators were on the scene for two days collecting evidence before finally homing in on Rogers. Turns out that Rogers may be connected to a string of burglaries in the area, including one that happened just hours after Gumbinger’s murder, a half-mile from her home.

Rogers has been charged with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary. He is being held without bond in the Dutchess County Jail.

Friends of Gumbinger called her “sharp as a tack”, whose only ailments were a bad leg and hip that kept her confined to her home and in need of home healthcare workers.

“I can’t imagine why people would have gone into that house, other than the fact that she was a defenseless old lady,” said Gumbinger’s niece. “She had a little jar on her table and in it she would have some 50 dollars, and some 20s, that’d be the most that she would have in the house.”

What a shame. Make it to 99-years-old with your mental capacities still intact, only to die in your own home at the hands of a petty thief who scored, at most, $100.

    Whoa, is he just a real tough guy! Way to pave the road to a great time behind closed bars.

  • rensuchan

    I agree, Morbid. Shame to live for 99 years and be murdered by some shitbag rather than being allowed to pass peacefully.

  • kcjosh

    If Obama had a son he would look like Javon.

  • LoKi4778

    Fannie Gumbinger is one of those “you know she has to be old” kind of names. Fucking animals, it’s sad… 2 world wars, the invention of the TV, computers, this woman lived through it all and she was killed by a cowardly shitbag… I hate people…

  • LoKi4778

    FUCK! I wish I would’ve thought of that!!! LOL.. but it’s not his fault, he’s a victim too, right?

  • nowitzki41

    yep, knew the guy was going to look like this.

  • Pyncky

    This lady was born during WWI. She was 17 years old when frakking Thomas Edison died. She watched men go to die in WWII, maybe friends and loved ones. This lady was a gateway to history if anyone thought to ask. So she had to die so some shit-stained wanna be tough guy could get some cash or something he could pawn for who knows what reason. I am not naive enough to think that just because he was arrested that he must be guilty, but if he is he deserves to have his skin ripped from him with pliers.

    My father-in-law just turned 90 and he is a font of historical information, a veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Thinking of some walking poster boy for abortion doing something like this makes my blood boil.

  • Danielle Vereen

    I knew this guy cause I dated his cousin.. He’s a shitstain of society.. Give him life, and then let Bubba kill em in the cell. No Mercy.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    Yet another treasure murdered by some waste of a young man who probably thought that he was entitled to her cash simply because she had some and he didn’t.

    That’s not how the world works, shitstain. You want money? You work for it. Unless you were born wealthy or have the mind and the will to make money hand over fist (and usually exploiting others), you won’t be able to get elected to Congress or become a Bank CEO and take people’s money while giving them nothing useful in return for it.

  • t0ofIy

    you wish you would have thought of that? this comment is used 100x a day. go read CNN or huffington post.

  • LoKi4778

    Why would I read those shitbag rags when I’ve got all the terrible news I need right here?

  • Really??? FFS…I cant even wrap my head around this shit…murdering grandma now…we’re doomed

  • Jeremy A Callaghan

    where is your fucking Al and Jesse now?? where is the outrage they should be showing for the poor old lady that was murdered? ohhh I forgot she is not black and he is not white..

  • itsknotme

    Kids, today’s lesson is on burglary.

    Lesson 1: If you have to buy “Burglary for Dummies.” then you instantly fail for semester. The course instructions advised you to acquire the book from non-traditional methods.

    Lesson 2: Burglary: Do not steal from old people. It’s impossible to sell: 13″ b&w tv’s that don’t have a remote. VCR’s. 8mm movie cameras. AT&T olive green kitchen phones. Tube Radios. Radio Shack Tandy 1000 computers.

  • t0ofIy

    you seemed to be amused by mindless, repetitive insults. it would be right up your alley.

  • Buffettgirl

    Sending Sniper Boyfriend to Poughkeepsie now… gonna save the taxpayers some money. This grand lady was 4 years older than my father would be. I can’t STAND thinking that fucked up thug wanna-bees are out there killing these amazing people. First in Spokane last week and now this? Truly makes me ill…

  • Malodorous

    I can’t, in good conscience, down vote either of you, considering my modus operandi basically consists of endlessly recycling unfunny jokes. But come on, the “if Obama had a son he would look like ____” is about as played out as the “We need to ban assault ____!” jokes. Even I have tired of posting those.

  • True

    Some animal raped the 88 year old lady next door to me one night. It was dark, so she couldn’t identify him. He dumped her purse and took all the cash she had. I didn’t hear a thing. I’ve always wanted to find him, take him to the woods and tie him to a tree. I’m a good shot, so it should take a while, but I could always use the practice. Worthless waste of space. These assholes are breathing our air!
    Bless this lady’s heart. I hope someone catches and convicts him soon!

    Sad 🙁

  • LoKi4778

    I don’t generally read news sites other than this one (if, indeed I can be so bold as to call this a news site), and when I do I don’t waste my time reading the comments of those sites, most especially if I find myself on HuffPo or the like because a) 3 kids and a 15 credit semester in networking technology don’t leave me much leisure time to surf the interwebs in search of the next funniest comment and b) I don’t like all the political bullshit that gets slung around. In this case, the President said something stupid… they all do at some point… and I thought the comment was funny. BTW… we need to ban assault comments…

  • Christopher Howard

    I share not only your outrage, but for the same reasons. It reminds me a lot of the WWII vet who got killed the other day. I always get particularly upset when the victim is helpless or if it was someone who was making a real positive mark on the world. There are people in our society who never give or do anything positive, but whose only purpose seems to be to do damage. Give him the fair trial he deserves and, if he’s guilty, punish him to the fullest extent of the law.

  • Christopher Howard

    If the police told the killer to not worry about it and just go home, you might have a point of comparison.

  • LoKi4778

    Sometimes I am… so what of it? Some jokes are funny no matter how many times you read/hear them. (…and I said wrecked ’em?!? Damn near killed ’em!) I just would rather insult kiddie diddlers and animal fuckers than get into political shit-slinging on a site like HuffPo or CNN. I enjoy this site because political commentary is generally frowned upon. I liked the comment because the President said something stupid and it has become his punchline (think Bush’s “can’t get fooled again” flub).

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    Too easy man! That line may as well be this site’s friggin’ URL!

  • kcjosh

    Yeah I know. Honestly if his name would have been anything that didn’t sound exactly like Trayvon I wouldn’t have posted it. It just struck me as funny at the time.

  • CT

    Well then sir, you are much luckier than me because my 93 year old Grannie can only seem to focus on the fact that I lived in sin with my husband before we got married.

  • Wanda Bates Syko

    What a wuss. Hope Bubba and friends kick his ass to pieces in jail.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    And you shall burn in hell for it.

  • CT

    Granny, I thought Mom took away your computer?

  • 18th40

    That’s right dear she did…now put down the crow bar and take off that lovely “Like A Virgin” baseball hat…and come talk to the nurse…It’s all good.

  • CT

    You can’t stay away from me, can you? I’m gonna try to take it as a compliment.

  • 18th40

    Well sure….that works…

    How bout them Seahawks though right ? What a ballgame…..

  • CT

    I got stuck watching the Redskins and I am not a fan of either team. 😛

  • Where’s a clown picture when a girl needs one? Not a fan of either team. Geez.

  • CT

    You’ve gone to the dark side, Athena, why? No clowns, no clownssssss.

  • Perhaps you don’t realize that Morbid met me at and recruited me from a website called Bloody-Disgusing.com? I’ve been a long-time resident of the dark side, my fair lady.

    And I didn’t post a picture. See? I still love you, even if, apparently, you like shitty football teams. 😉

  • 18th40

    “My fair lady” ? Fancy inflection this early ?

  • CT

    No, no! I don’t like the Redskins or Tampa Bay!

  • lol. Tampa Bay. I would say so much but, then again, it’s Tampa Bay, and they really don’t deserve the effort.

    The Redskins were my mom’s team. I am bound by sentiment.

  • I see the dresses this woman buys. There’s no time CT doesn’t deserve fancy inflection.

  • brian

    piece of shit
