Austin, TX - A man is in a medically-induced coma in a hospital burn unit after his wife allegedly used a ruse of giving him a “hot oil massage” to douse him in gasoline and light him up. Police identified multiple ways that they believe she attempted to keep him from getting aid.
On Tuesday night, police responded to a disturbance call at the apartment that Shriya Biman Patel, 25, shared with her husband. Police say they found a naked man lying on the floor screaming in pain with severe burns over 70% of his body. Patel was also in the apartment when they arrived.
According to the victim, he had undressed and gotten into the bathtub under the guise of a promise by his wife to give him a hot oil massage. Investigators found candles placed around the bathroom presumably to create a romantic ambiance. The victim said, then – when he entered the tub – Patel poured what the man believed to be oil on him. He told investigators the next thing he knew, he was on fire.…Continue Reading
Wangaratta, Australia – Two years ago, Kerry Anne McNiven, 44, got drunk at a party and passed out. Gary Stewart, who was reported to have been a friend of McNiven for 10 years, took unfortunate advantage of the situation and touched her breasts ‘inappropriately.’ According to testimony, this act was witnessed by McNiven’s partner and three other people. McNiven’s partner, Ray Fleming, told the other three not to tell her because he knew she would be ‘upset.‘ A week later, the same crew was partying again. It was then that one of the three witnesses to the groping told McNiven about what Stewart had done.
Did she get upset? You decide…
According to court records, after mother-of-three McNiven was told of Stewart’s actions, she filled a container with a gasoline-oil mixture and placed it inside a shopping bag she was carrying. She then invited Stewart, pictured on the right, to walk to a nearby river. When they reached the river, they sat down at a boat ramp and continued to talk and drink.…Continue Reading
WAYNE COUNTY, Indiana — I was just about to write up the lame story regarding EquuSearch suing Casey Anthony when I noticed a much more interesting story in a sidebar. A woman in Indiana has been charged with murder after admitting to burning her father alive.
Court records show 30-year-old Nina Holbrook intentionally set her 50-year-old father on fire and admitted to doing it. She told investigators that she called Carl Holbrook to her bedroom where she splashed a cup of camper fuel into his face, then shoved a lit candle into his chest. After setting her father on fire, she climbed out her bedroom window, crossed a field and began walking down the road.
A person who was to meet Carl at the house found him with most of his clothes burned off and suffering burns to most of his body. He would be taken to the hospital, but would later die from his injuries. Carl was able to tell people that it was his daughter who set him on fire, but it really wasn’t necessary.…Continue Reading
