The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”

Missouri mother Rachel Kinsella was found guilty of covertly poisoning her 9-year-old son over the course of a year with prescription drugs. The jury decided that Kinsella had deliberately misled doctors about the medicine she was administering to her child.
According to STL Today, Kinsella’s son Patrick was removed from his mother’s care after a hospital visit in 2015. In 2014, Patrick had seizures at school and was hospitalized for upwards of ten months.
Kinsella had purchased medicine from pharmacies in the area, despite having received the appropriate drugs from the hospital. She did not tell doctors and pharmicists that her son was already getting treatment.
Doctors were perplexed by Patrick’s symptoms which included seizures, hallucinations, and problems walking and breathing. He was given dozens of blood treatments and surgeries while experts attempted to figure out what was wrong. Now living with his grandparents, Patrick now has no major health problems.
A Beaverton, Oregon man suspected of throwing semen on unsuspecting women was arrested Thursday in the parking lot of a store where a previous attack occurred. Portland’s KOIN reports detectives were conducting a follow-up investigation at a local Safeway store when they noticed a man fitting the suspect’s description sitting in a car similar to the one described by victims. They arrested 47-year-old Manuel Banuelos-Alcala at the scene and charged him with two counts of third-degree sexual abuse.
Portland police released photos of the suspect and his car last week following a semen-throwing incident in the same store that Wednesday. A police spokesman said Banuelos-Alcala is suspected of similar behavior at three other area grocery stores, according to The Oregonian newspaper. In fact, they even fear he may have spread his bodily fluid on another unsuspecting victim in that same Safeway, mere moments before his arrest.
