Mom Pens Chilling Note Month Before Ex Murders Her Over Brutal Custody Battle

“He was smooth and had me fearing everything he said would come true,” wrote Debra Morgan, an Oklahoma woman, shortly before being murdered in 2016 following a long custody battle with her ex.

Richard Spaulding and Sonia Weidenfelder, Spaulding’s fiancé, now face first-degree murder charges, according to Fox.

On the day Morgan had been killed, records show that a court of appeals had filed in her favor pertaining to child support over offspring she had with Spaulding. Spaulding was going to have to pay over tens of thousands in legal fees. The child at the center of the argument has since been put into DHS custody and may eventually go to live with a family member.

Morgan’s aforementioned note contained extensive information about the physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of Spaulding. 

“If I end up dead, go find Rick [Spaulding],” she even told a coworker, according to The

On the night of August 9, 1969, Charles Manson ordered central Manson Family member Charles “Tex” Watson to take three other members, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, and Patricia Krenwinkel to the home of Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate’s house. Manson told the three women to do as Watson directed them. The three women were instructed to “totally destroy everyone in [the house], as gruesome as you can.”

They also killed three friends who were visiting Tate: her former lover and hairstylist Jay Sebring, Polanski’s friend and aspiring screenwriter Wojciech Frykowski, and Frykowski’s girlfriend Abigail Folger, heiress to the Folger coffee fortune. Stephen Parent, who was visiting the caretaker of the home, was also murdered.

Mom Murders 11-Year-Old Daughter, Then Takes 700-Mile, Cross-Country Road Trip With Dead Body In Trunk

A mother has been charged with concealment of a deceased human body after her daughter’s body was found near a highway in West Virginia.

According to the Pocahontas Times, Erica Newsome, of Jacksonville, Florida, struck a guardrail when a couple saw her removing and disposing a body from her car. It belonged to her daughter, 11-year-old Kaye-lea Plummer.

Authorities found the woman and the body of her daughter on a road. “It was obvious that the 11-year-old did not die from injuries from the accident,” State Police Sergeant Herby Barlow said. “Her injuries were non-motor vehicle injuries.” 

According to authorities, Newsome told police that she had killed her daughter and was abusive to her.

She shared that the child’s father lived in Buffalo, New York and that’s where she was driving toward. The father says that he hasn’t seen his daughter since 2014 after the couple separated.

Man Murders Step-Grandfather After He Catches Him ‘Having Sex’ With His Mom

A man from England murdered his step-grandfather after witnessing him “appearing to have sex” with his mother, BBC reports. Michael McDonald, 25, claimed he lost control of himself when he saw his mother, Terri Hurry, 42, “having sex” with her 78-year-old father-in-law, Brian Hurry.

According to The Telegraph, Hurry was killed after being hit repeatedly with the metal bar of a dumbbell at his home last summer. McDonald reportedly lured him into a bathroom, where he attacked him.

“I walked to the bedroom, opened the door and I saw my mum with her top and bra off sitting on top of my grandad with my grandad’s hands on her waist,” McDonald told the court during his murder trial, according to Essex Live. “I was used to it so it wasn’t anything new. I have seen it most of my life. The first time I saw it was with

Details Emerge In Pennsylvania Farm Murders: The Victims Were Shot, Put In Pig Roaster

All four bodies have now been identified on the Pennsylvania farm owned by the Cosmo DiNardo’s family. DiNardo, 20, has confessed to killing all four young men. His cousin Sean Kratz, 20, has been charged in three of the killings.

In affidavits from the Bucks County prosecutor’s office and at a press conference Friday afternoon, District Attorney Matthew Weintraub described the murders. All four men were shot — one on July 5 and three on July 7. One of them was run over with a backhoe. DiNardo said he tried to burn three of the bodies by putting them into a metal tank he called a  “pig roaster.” He then poured in gas and lit a fire. He buried that tank using a backhoe in a 12.5 foot hole. The fourth body was buried in a separate, 6-foot deep grave. The single “grave” belonged to Jimi Patrick, 19.

Police Use DNA In Spit To Link Man To Murders of Two Young Women

Authorities used DNA from spit on a sidewalk to link a man to two 2011 slayings in Los Angeles.

According to the Associated Press, a man already suspected of sexually assaulting and killing two young women was tied to the crime after police analyzed the spit.

Geovanni Borjas, 32, was identified as a suspect in the killings of Michelle Lozano, 17, and Bree’Anna Guzman, 22, after Los Angeles investigators used a DNA testing technique known as familial DNA testing.  This technique is considered controversial. It allowed investigators to compare forensic evidence from the victims to law enforcement databases to identify likely relatives of the person who committed the crime. This particular search resulted in a match to Borjas’ father, whose DNA was on file from a prior arrest.

Detectives began following Borjas and after he spit on a sidewalk, they collected his DNA. That sample matched the DNA that was collected
