Luc Tieman Shot And Buried Wife Valerie In The Backyard | Crime …

It took a jury minutes to convict a Maine man of murder on Monday for killing his wife and burying her body behind his parents house – in a shallow grave along with a note signed with his nick-name, a wedding band, flowers, a bag of potato chips, a box of SweeTarts and bottle of Gucci women’s perfume called Guilty.

Luc Tieman, 34, a former Army paratrooper who saw combat in Iraq, according to his lawyer, was convicted of murder for shooting his wife, Valerie, twice in the head with .45 caliber pistol in August, 2016. He now faces 25 years in prison, according to CentralMaine.com, a news website.

Police and prosecutors believe Tieman killed his wife on August 25, 2016, a day before he moved in with another woman he met at a pool party and referred to as his “rebound girl,” according to prosecutors.

Valerie Tieman’s mother, Sarajean Harmon, last spoke to

Unarmed Black Man Carrying Cell Phone Shot And Killed By Police In His Own Backyard

A 22-year-old black man was fatally shot by Sacramento police in his own back yard on Sunday night. Now officers are clarifying that he was carrying a cell phone, not a “tool bar” as previously thought. 

Stephon Clark was killed in the backyard of the home he shared with his grandmother, grandfather, and some siblings, his 25-year-old brother Stevante Clark said to The Sacramento Bee on Monday.

The Sunday night incident began with officers responding to a call of a person breaking car windows nearby, the police department said. Police believed that Clark was armed with a gun. Though no firearm was found at the scene, police claimed to have seen Clark with an “object” that he “extended in front of him” as he approached the two officers. 

An earlier 911 call reported a man breaking into parked vehicles in the neighborhood and the caller told police that the suspect had been

Mom Arrested After Police Find Baby Dead In Backyard With Umbilical Cord Still Attached

The body of a dead infant, with its umbilical cord still attached, was discovered in a backyard. The naked newborn’s remains were discovered on Tuesday behind a home in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, according to the Denver Post.

The alleged mother, Camille Wasinger-Konrad, 23, was arrested on first-degree murder charges. She was renting out a room in the area where the baby was found, according to the Denver Channel. A witness called police after making the horrendous discovery. The exact cause of death has not yet been determined. 

Wasinger-Konrad is being held without bond. It is unclear at this time if she has a lawyer who can speak on her behalf. Her grandfather told 9 News that in recent months, she looked pregnant and had rapidly gained weight, but when he allegedly confronted Wasinger-Konrad about the possibility of her being pregnant, she denied it. 

Sheriff Tony Spurlock stated in a news

The Gun Used In Tupac’s Murder Was Allegedly Found In Compton Backyard In 1998

A bombshell allegation has surfaced this week about Tupac Shakur’s 1996 murder. The gun used to kill the beloved rapper in an unsolved drive-by shooting in Las Vegas was allegedly found in a man’s Compton, California backyard in 1998.

Producers of the new AE docu-series “Who Killed Tupac?” found a police document that allegedly states that an unidentified man discovered the .40-caliber Glock in his backyard. He called the police to report the weapon, but now, police allegedly have no idea where that gun is.

Law enforcement, however, may have an idea of who may have had it.

In 2006, a Sheriff’s deputy discovered that the address where it was found once belonged to a high-ranking Crips gang member’s girlfriend. The deputy who connected those dots was working on another major unsolved murder of another rap legend from the ’90s: the 1997 slaying of Biggie Smalls. Shakur was fighting with an alleged Crips member

Neighbors Find Naked 22-Year-Old Covered In Blood And Mud In Backyard: ‘Help Me…I Murdered 4 People’

Wagner Alcocer was on his computer Friday evening when he heard someone calling for help outside his home in Groton, Massachusetts. From his backdoor he could see a tall young man, blotches of blood and mud on his naked body.  “Help me please, help me please,” he said. “I murdered four people.”

NBC Boston reports police later identified the young man as 22-year-old Orion Krause. He was a recent graduate of Ohio’s prestigious Oberlin College Conservatory.

At a press conference Friday night, Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan said Krause had been arrested for the murders of three women and a man at a home in Groton. They died from blunt-force trauma. Ryan said Krause knew his victims, and called the quadruple homicide, “a situation of tragic family violence.”

According to Boston’s WCBV, Krause may have used a baseball bat to beat the life out of his four

Man Kills Himself And Leaves Note Saying He Buried Wife In The Backyard

A Florida man killed himself, leaving behind a suicide note saying he had buried his wife in the backyard, mere hours after police performed a welfare check on the elderly couple. A concerned relative had asked authorities to look in on them after receiving a “disturbing package in the mail from 75-year-old Laurence Caulfield,” according to the official police report. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports human remains were found on the Caulfield’s property as of late Wednesday, however, they have yet to be identified.

Killer who had lover buried in backyard tried to flee prison by forging Dallas judge’s signature

Harris hired a 13-year-old and his uncle to dig Giles’ grave under the ruse that she was installing a pond, then got a man to pour a 3-by-15-foot concrete slab on top.

She posed as Giles in emails and texts, telling his family he was in New Mexico and needed some time away. Prosecutors say she even had a new boyfriend pretend to be Giles, dressed up in bandages after a supposed car accident, so she could gain access to Giles’ financial accounts.

Authorities excavated Giles’ body from his own backyard in 2007.

Garland police arrested Harris, but while out on bond she paid a teenager to confess to the crime, authorities say.

Police didn’t buy it. Neither did prosecutors, who took her to trial in 2009. Harris ended up taking a plea deal for 50 years in prison.

“It’s the craziest case I ever tried in my life,” said Healy, the former prosecutor now
