Ex-Boyfriend Allegedly Murders Woman Days After Her Younger Sister Is Killed In Tragic Car Accident

It is an overwhelming tragedy for one family. Just one day after a woman died in a horrific car accident along with four other people, her sister was allegedly murdered by her ex-boyfriend.

The family knew something was wrong when 21-year-old Karen Garcia didn’t show up to her sister Jessica’s vigil. According to KCRA, Garcia’s body was found in a Woodland, California parking lot. Police have called her death a homicide.

She was last seen on the morning of January 8, after telling a friend she was going to go to a mall to try to clear her head after her sister’s tragic accident. Jessica Garcia and four friends died after they were struck by a wrong-way driver.

Nearly a week later, on Sunday, Karen’s body was found inside a car parked by the department store Marshall’s.

Police subsequently accused Salvador Garcia, Jr., Karen’s ex-boyfriend and father of their 2-year-old daughter,

More information is coming out in the case of a 16-year-old New Jersey boy who allegedly killed his parents, sister, and a friend shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve in their family home, CBS News reported.

Attorney: Murder Charge Of Sister Accused Of Driving Off Cliff To Kill Twin Should Be Dropped

Alexandria Duval (nee Alison Dadow) is being accused of killing her twin sister after a car in which both of them drove off a cliff. Alexandria survived the crash with minor injuries; her lawyers are now arguing that the charges against her should be dropped.

According to People, the defense is attempting to argue that testimony given by a detective in a grand jury hearing was incorrect. Duval’s lawyers claim that a witness to the crash said that he saw the passenger pulling the driver’s hair with both hands, but a detective testified that the witness had said the passenger had stopped pulling the driver’s hair by the time the vehicle was jolting over the cliff’s edge.

Before the crash, Alexandria and her sister Anastasia Duval (nee Ann Dadow) had owned and operated a chain of yoga studios in Florida. The two had moved and changed their names after going bankrupt.

“They were very well

Sister Of Missing Woman Robyn Gardner Thinks Human Bone Found In Natalee Holloway Search Could Be Hers

A human bone found in Aruba during an investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway was tested and does not belong to the 18-year-old who went missing in 2005 — but a new DNA test may link the bone to missing Maryland woman Robyn Gardner.

Gardner’s sister, Danielle Colson-Unglesbee, said she will be submitting her DNA for tests to determine if the bone could be a match for Gardner. “I’m going to submit my DNA in the next few days to see if there’s a match,” she told Huffington Post. 

The bone belongs to “a single individual” believed to be “a Caucasian European,” according to a former forensic laboratory director Jason Kolowski.

Gardner was 35 years old when she went missing in 2011 on vacation with a man she met through an online dating site, People reports. He told police Gardner

8-Year-Old Boy Beaten To Death By Mom’s Ex-BF For Protecting His Little Sister From Assault

An 8-year-old boy was beaten to death with a hammer while trying to defend his sister from being molested.

According to WSFA, Dante Daniels, 8, caught his mother’s ex-boyfriend trying to commit a lewd act on his 7-year-old sister, Danae. That prompted 23-year-old Deandre Chaney Jr. to attack Dante, Danae and their 28-year-old mother Elizabeth Salone.

Police say that Chaney Jr. used a knife, a hammer and lighter fluid in the attack. Dante was injured the most. He was declared brain dead and died six days after the incident.

“Trying to save his sister from this child molester, and that’s why he was beat the worst,” Dante’s grandmother, Monique Brown, told WSFA.

Salone and Danae survived, but they have been badly hurt. Brown said Salone will likely never see out of her left eye again. She added that her granddaughter will need a lot of
