Los Angeles – Man-Ling Williams, who is in her 20s, came home from grocery shopping Wednesday morning she found her husband Neal Williams, 27, dead of multiple stab wounds. Her two sons Devon, 7, and Ian, 3, were both found strangled in their bunk beds. The house had been ransacked.
Here is why I think the mother knows more than she is saying.
- There was nothing to suggest that an intruder was responsible for the deaths, because nothing had been stolen.
- The mother told police she had just came back from an early morning grocery run, but told a neighbor she was returning from a drive she started at around 10 or 11 pm the night before to “to cool off her head”.
- She is not the one who found her kids, but rather had a neighbor check the room they were found in.
- Some neighbors said they often heard the couple arguing at night.
But I guess we will see where the police go with this. Neal’s Myspace page had an interesting blurb that stated “About me: I’m an easy going guy, who loves icecream.…Continue Reading
POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. – Jane Kuria, 47, and her two daughters Isabel Kuria, 19, and Annabell Kuria were found dead Wednesday morning, in what police believe was a triple homicide. Two boys, Jeremy Kuria,8, and another boy who was not identified, were apparently beaten and found unconscious in the home. Neighbors said the woman who lived in the home was a nurse who had moved to the neighborhood about two years ago.
Investigators said there was no sign of forced entry into the home and the home did not appear to have been burglarized or ransacked. Authorities did not have a suspect in custody by Wednesday afternoon and do not suspect the deaths were a murder-suicide.
Now this gets even more interesting…
The murdered family had sought political asylum.
Seems that the mother, Jane Kuria, 46, had fled Kenya in 2001 after the death of her husband and her home was destroyed. According to her political asylum application, the couple was targeted in Kenya because of their opposition to female genital mutilation.…Continue Reading

In a nutshell, when Jasmine Richardson was 12, she and her boyfriend, 23-year-old Jeremy Steinke, murdered her mother and father along with her 8-year-old brother after the girls father forbid her to see Steinke any longer. The case was reported pretty heavily for a multitude of reasons, her age, his age, the callousness of their actions before, during and after the murders, plus the fact taht the girl was a “goth” girl who frequented nextopia.com as well as vampirefreaks.com. During her trial, she stuck with the story that she was being controlled and afraid of her boyfriend and did what he told her.
