Suspected Serial Killer Accused Of Killing 9 People In Just 3 Weeks

A suspected serial killer is accused of murdering nine people in just three weeks, including his own mother and stepfather. Cleophus Cooksey Jr., of Phoenix, Arizona, was originally arrested for shooting his parents, 56-year-old Rene Cooksey and 54-year-old Edward Nunn, in their home on December 17.

“Our detectives didn’t stop there, they kept digging,” Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said during a Thursday press conference, according to the New York Daily News.

Now, police have tied him to an additional seven murders, all of which are believed to have taken place between November 27 and December 17 in the Phoenix area. All were shot, reported NBC News.

Police were able to link Cooksey, 35, to the victims through the gun he used. Because the killings did not follow any discernible modus operandi, police did not realize that they had a serial killer on their hands until they arrested Cooksey for

Video Shows Suspected Murderers’ ‘Rehearsed’ Reactions To Finding Out Woman’s Ex Is Dead

Valerie McDaniel and Leon Jacob were arrested earlier this year after their involvement in a failed murder-for-hire plot was discovered by police, according to People. Now, newly released footage of the couple being told about the death of McDaniel’s ex shows the pair’s suspected staged reactions.

“Oh my God,” says Jacob on camera. “We have been here all night. We were here all day with their daughter and we were watching movies. I never met him except for once.”

Police found Jacob’s insistence on immediately establishing an alibi suspicious: “What he wants to do is … let us know right away it is not him,” said Houston detective Frank Quinn. “And then feigns that surprise. It was all rehearsed in my opinion.”

McDaniel would later be released from arrest on $55,000 bail. The day before she was scheduled to appear in court, she jumped from the seventh floor of a building and

Woman Accused Of Giving Fake Butt Implants Is Murdered In Suspected Revenge Attack

A Brazilian woman accused of giving illegal buttock augmentation procedures has been murdered in Rio de Janeiro. Marcilene Soares Gama, 49, was facing legal action over allegations that she posed as a doctor at the time of her murder on Saturday, according to the BBC.

A man was recorded on surveillance video entering Gama’s apartment before he tied her up, shot her in the face and dumped her body on a roadside. Police believe her murder was an act of revenge, according to TIME. At least 10 women have accused Gama of malpractice and impersonating a doctor.

“She never said she was a surgeon. People knew the risks, but they went ahead anyway,” Gama’s brother-in-law, Daniel Mofacto told O Dia. “But I do believe that she was murdered by a vengeful client.”

Gama had two children and was preparing to soon become a grandmother.

Buttock enhancements are one of the most popular plastic surgeries
