Ocenaside, CA – Tim Lambesis, the 32-year-old lead singer for the
jumbo shrimp Christian metal band As I Lay Dying, has been arrested and accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife.
Police received information last Thursday that Lambesis was “soliciting another individual” to kill his wife, Meggan, who filed for divorce last September. She currently lives in Encinitas with three Ethiopian children the couple had adopted.
According to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, “The Encinitas Detectives, The San Diego Fugitive Task Force and the Sheriff’s Special Investigation Division investigators immediately initiated an investigation. The investigation culminated this afternoon [Tuesday], when Lambesis solicited an undercover detective to kill his wife.”
In his defense, while the Bible is pretty clear that you should not kill anyone, it’s a bit hazy when it comes to hiring someone else to do it for you. Lambesis was arrested without incident, then booked into the Vista Detention Facility. His next court appearance should be today or tomorrow.
I’ve never listened to As I Lay Dying, or any religious themed band that doesn’t worship the devil, so I have no idea if they are any good or not.…Continue Reading
HOOVER, AL – Hoover detectives say they arrested 82-year-old Sue Hutchison for trying to arrange for three of her relatives to be killed.
Police were first contacted on April 15th, and information was provided that suggested Hutchison was attempting to hire a hitman to off three of her relatives, allegedly over concerns about who might inherit her husband’s estate. Hutchison set up three meetings with a man she believed was a middle-man who knew a 3rd party who was willing and capable of carrying out the murders.
During one of the meetings, Hutchison insisted that they not use the word “killed” but instead should refer to what she wanted done as “eliminated”. Probably after scratching ‘iced’ and ‘whacked’ off her list as being too Sopranos. At two of the alleged meetings, money exchanged hands, along with some dry skin. On April 18th, Hutchison was taken into custody in the Lee Branch shopping center parking lot.
When interviewed, the old biddy admitted to detectives to orchestrating the plot. She believed the murders would be carried out on Wednesday night, and told police that she’d watched the local news Thursday morning to see if there was a story about the murders.…Continue Reading
Janet Strickland, 64, was charged with one count each of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm after her husband, William Strickland, 72, was killed in a hail of bullets in front of their home by his 19-year-old grandson, whose name is also William Strickland.
Janet Strickland, who knows about doing things the Chicago way, was not present at her bond hearing on Saturday. She was being held at a local hospital where she was being treated for lung disease and high blood pressure, according to the Chicago Tribune. Her bail was set at $500,000.
In full-on Capone mode, granny Strickland plotted with her teenage grandson, an admitted member of the Black P. Stones street gang, to kill her husband because she was “sick” of Strickland and wanted him dead, said Assistant State’s Attorney Jacqueline Kwilos.
“They discussed on numerous occasions killing the victim,” Kwilos said during the hearing.…Continue Reading
Houston, TX – Brittany Martinez, a 24-year-old emergency medical technician, has been charged with solicitation of capital murder after prosecutors say she paid a man to kill her firefighter husband.
According to court documents, she got caught after the man she hired to help her husband, a restaurant manager at Casa Ole, went to police. He told them that Martinez confided she was having marital issues and she wanted him to kill her husband. She would pay him $500 up front and then $1000 to $2000 once the job was done.
The manager told her he didn’t want to kill her husband, but he’d find someone who would. Two weeks later, on Sunday, Martinez gave the manager $500, her husband’s work schedule along with a photo of her husband — all to be relayed to the would-be killer. She needed the job done quickly, before her husband noticed the missing funds.
After she left, the manager called her back and recorded the phone call. In the recording, Martinez gave instructions that the hit man should kill her husband in the back parking lot of the fire station where he works in order to avoid security cameras positioned across the street.…Continue Reading
Steger, IL – Robert J. Deja, 45, was back in court on a second sexual assault charge. …and judging by the now $12 million bail, prosecutors are clearly not amused. If you are near a dry erase board, it may come in handy on this one…
Deja’s legal woes began in July after authorities reportedly learned of allegations that he had been sexually abusing his adopted daughter for approximately four years. Police then learned the young woman has a 3-year-old child fathered by Deja. Police reports say Deja became upset when he found out that his now 20-year-old daughter had a new boyfriend. This reportedly prompted Deja to kick his daughter out of the house. Deja then attempted to hire his brother as a hit man to kill his daughter and her boyfriend. It is believed that the brother – who is, of course, the woman’s uncle – tipped off authorities.
On October 12, Deja was arrested and held on $7 million bail on charges of solicitation to commit murder and criminal sexual assault.…Continue Reading
MILWAUKEE, Wisonsin – A man waiting in jail on sex assault charges just added a couple more felonies under his belt after trying to hire another inmate to kill his victim so they could not testify. Sunil Singh was accused of getting a 14-year-old drunk back in March before raping and beating her in the basement of an apartment building. While awaiting trial, police say that Singh enlisted the help of another prisoner in an effort to win his case — by killing the teen victim. Investigators have recordings of Singh telling the other inmate to “kill her, throw her in the garbage.” He explains that without the witness to testify against him, “I win my case.” As payment, Singh gave the man the combination to a safe located in the gas station where he used to work. Singh now adds two more felony charges under his belt and the possible addition of 18 years in prison.…Continue Reading
Denver, CO - Back in April, TheMorningStar posted a story in our forums about Bill Jordan – the man who had to have his pinky removed at the first knuckle because of some punk-ass loser thug. Jordan had just purchased an iPad at the mall and was walking toward the parking garage when the thug approached him and tried to rip the Apple bag out of Jordan’s hands. Unfortunately, Jordan had the shopping bag cord wrapped tightly around his fingers. “He was almost sitting on the ground he was pulling so hard and it was still tied around my fingers; and it wouldn’t come off and then finally he gave it one big jerk; and that’s when he stripped the skin off my pinky and it went right down to the bone,” Jordan later told reporters. The kid grabbed the iPad and took off. Jordan’s finger was mangled so badly, amputation was necessary. Through video surveillance, authorities were able to identify the suspect in the robbery – Brandon Smith. The 21-year-old has been sitting in jail awaiting his fate since being picked up just days after assaulting Jordan.…Continue Reading
Portland, OR – In last week’s update, I wrote that Kaine Horman took the child he has with Terri Horman and moved out of the house before filing for a divorce and a restraining order. Now we may know why. According to an article published by the Oregonian on Sunday, a landscaper who worked for Kyron’s family told detectives that Terri offered to pay him “a lot of money” to kill Kaine. The unnamed landscaper said Terri approached him with the murder-for-hire plot about six or seven months before Kyron disappeared. She described being in a bad marriage and claimed that Kaine had been unfaithful. The landscaper said he had no intentions of going through with the hit, but he truly believed Terri was dead serious. On June 26th, the landscaper, who is fully cooperating with authorities, was wired and a meeting with Terri and an undercover officer was set up. Unfortunately, Terri ended the conversation before anything incriminating was said. Later that same day, Kaine was informed of the plot and he wisely got the hell outta Dodge.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles – I had no real intentions of posting this guy and I was hesitant in even placing this story in the celebrity category, but he did have his own television show, so screw it. Juan-Carlos Cruz, the host of “Calorie Commando” on the Food Network in 2004, has pleaded not guilty to the charges of attempted murder and solicitation of murder. This comes after a homeless man told Santa Monica Police Department’s homeless liaison officers that Cruz had been trying to recruit him and another man to kill his wife, Jennifer Campbell. He told them that Cruz had given one of the men a weapon and a cellphone as well as instructing them how to bypass his security system. He wanted her throat cut, but later asked that they simply strangle her. But luckily his plans were thwarted and he is now sitting in jail. The reason for me posting this? Cruz’s motive. It’s as dumb as it is ballsy.…Continue Reading
Houston, TX – When 43-year-old Tabassum Khan was found stabbed to death in the early morning hours on November 25th, authorities suspected her 17-year-old son, Danish Minhas, may have had something to do with it – at the time, though, they just couldn’t prove it. Danish, who discovered the body, told investigators he’d spent the entire night away from home and discovered his mother’s body when he returned home that morning. Which was weird, because Khan ran a tight ship and was rather strict with her son when it came to curfew. Six weeks after Khan’s death, one of Danish’s friends was busted for selling drugs on school grounds, and oddly enough, his fingerprints matched those found in Khan’s home. Police hauled in 18-year-old Nur Mohamed for questioning. It was then revealed that Danish had placed a $4,000 bounty on his mother’s head and Nur took the bait – he confessed to stabbing Khan nearly 50 times while Danish stood as look-out. …Continue Reading
Gallatin County, ILL- Residents were surprised when small town Sheriff Raymond Martin was arrested on drug charges; the 20 year policeman was caught in a large scale marijuana distribution ring, where him and his “source” were selling about 20lbs of weed on a biweekly basis. However, that surprise pales in comparison to the community’s shock when Martin’s wife, Kristina Martin, and son, Cody Martin, were arrested while visiting him in prison. The charge? Murder-For-Hire! The entire family got in on this cop’s corruption when they collaborated with two men, “identified as Kevin B. and Thomas H.”, to plot murder- and the victims were to be witnesses in Daddy’s drug trial! Now all three are locked up with a bond of one million bucks each, set to appear in court today (Tuesday). Interestingly enough, Martin remains sheriff and continues to draw on his $40,000 a year salary. Gallatin County is on top of it, though – they have written Martin a letter, urging him to resign.…Continue Reading
CLAYTON COUNTY, Georgia – Marcia Killebrew told reporters that her 16-year-old son was called out of the classroom by his substitute math teacher, Randolph Forde. Her son says that Forde asked if he was gay. This angered her son, and the next day he and Forde got into a verbal argument. Some time later, the Mundy’s Mill high school teacher told a student that he had a hit on someone and needed him to take care of it. When the student asked who it was, “the teacher held a piece of paper up with the victim’s name on it,” said Otis Willis III of the Clayton County Police Department. Killebrew’s son became alarmed and immediately told her. “He says, ‘Ma, you’re not going to believe this but Mr. Forde offered another student money to kill me,’” she said. The student told administrators about Forde’s questioning of his sexuality and the following argument, but nothing was done. It wasn’t until now that Forde was placed on paid administrative leave.…Continue Reading
Tulsa, OK- Stephen Bowen, 55, is just a greedy old fart. After being married to the same woman for 17 years, he just couldn’t bear the thought of parting with his assets and half the parking lot striping business he owned in a divorce. So what did Stingy Steve do? He tried to hire a hit-man to kill his wife, of course. The details in this one are pretty telling about what kind of man Stephen is and where his priorities lie. If I were his wife, I’d be filing for divorce and buying a gun quicker than you can say O. J. in a white Bronco. It all began when Bowen tried to offer the dirty deed to one of his former employees.…Continue Reading

NEWARK, Del – Wilbur was really pissed at his 44-year-old ex son-in-law. So mad in fact, that he wanted him hurt very badly. Now, after a bad decision and a chain of stupidity, he has been charged and arrested for offering someone $1,200 to assault the man. He even added a bit of an incentive. An extra $3000 if he cut off the man’s genitals and brought them back. …Continue Reading
Auburn, WA – Elizabeth Beimer has been involved in some ongoing custody issues with the father of her 6-year-old daughter. Let’s face it, any kind of custody battle sucks donkey dicks.

Nikita hired two hitmen to kill his mother so he could sell her car and empty her bank account.…Continue Reading
Litchfield, Poston, O’Conner
S.C. - My favorite story of the week.

So they set up a nice sting that got all three men arrested before anyone got hurt. But before we get to that portion of the story, here is a bit of background.…Continue Reading
