Man Dismembered Dad, Used Boxed Body Parts As TV Stand


A U.K. man is accused of killing and dismembering his father, then using a box full of the man’s body parts as a TV stand.

Crown court stockNathan Robinson, 28, admitted in Winchester Crown Court to killing his father, The Guardian reported Wednesday. However, Robinson’s lawyers argue that he is only guilty of manslaughter, not murder, because Robinson was experiencing “abnormality of mental function” when the killing occurred.

Prosecutors say Robinson fatally stabbed his father, 48-year-old William Spiller, in May 2013 at the apartment where they both lived in Dorset. He then dismembered the body and cut it into pieces before storing the remains of his 6’5”, 350-pound father in plastic boxes, with Spiller’s head in a filing cabinet, according to the BBC.

According to police, he was using the plastic boxes that held his father’s body parts to prop up a television.

A few hours after the killing allegedly took place, a downstairs neighbor noticed a “pink liquid” dripping through his ceiling, but when he went to ask Robinson about it, he was told nothing was wrong. Prosecutors now believe the liquid was Spiller’s blood, which had become diluted while Robinson was cleaning up.

Despite the neighbor’s observations, no one discovered Spiller’s remains until about a month later, after the man’s girlfriend reported him missing and law enforcement searched the apartment.

Widow takes husband’s ashes to T-Mobile after they refuse to cancel his plan


A grieving widow is speaking out about the agony that plagued her following her late husband’s death to cancer — not from his burial, but from trying to cancel his cell phone plan.

910-32-t-mobile-179276Weathered widow Maria Raybould, speaking to the Telegraph, said she did everything from produce her husband’s death certificate to carry his ashes to a T-Mobile store in Cardiff, Wales.

But despite her best efforts, the cell phone provider not only tried to penalize the 56-year-old with a cancellation fee but terrorized her with bill collectors.

“I’ve been up to the shop with the death certificate, with a letter from the crematorium, the funeral bills — even his ashes,” she told the paper of her late husband David, who passed away in August.

After one visit that left her having a panic attack outside the store, she was told that everything would be taken care of.

Fast forward several days later, she received yet another letter from bailiffs seeking payments on his £26-a-month contract — approximately $40.50.

“How dare they put me and my sons through this after all we have been through already,” she said. “I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what we have gone through over the last few months. It was easier for us to bury him than sort this out.”

T-Mobile, reached by the Telegraph for comment, has apologized to the widow while blaming their mistake on a delayed automatic process.

They said in a statement: “We apologize to Mrs. Raybould for any distress caused at this difficult time. We can confirm that the account has been closed and the balance cleared.”

Paul Fox Killed His 83yo Mom With A Sledgehammer Because He Was Ashamed Of Getting Another Dui


An alcoholic bludgeoned his mother to death with a sledgehammer because he could not live with the shame of getting a drink-drive ban.

axfxhvPaul Fox, 54, battered 83-year-old Yvonne Fox in the kitchen of their shared home days after police caught him driving his car while he was over the limit.

After murdering his mother, Fox walked to a nearby off licence to buy alcohol to fuel his addiction.

The bachelor was so ashamed at the probability of being convicted that he decided to kill his mother and then himself.

The day after Fox’s arrest, his mother’s body was found lying on the floor in a pool of blood.

She had numerous stab wounds and had suffered multiple blows to the head, believed to be caused by a sledgehammer.

When police officers entered the home in Alsager, near Crewe, on June 3, they found a note which said: ‘Better off without me.’

Fox was found seriously injured with self-inflicted wounds in his upstairs bedroom.

He told paramedics: ‘I’m sorry to put you through this, it can’t be pleasant.’

He said that he ‘couldn’t go on anymore’ and that he had killed his mother because she would not be able to cope without him.

He added: ‘I’m not an evil man.’

A knife and hammer used in the attack were found near her body and were seized and taken away for forensic examination.

During a police interview he admitted killing his mother due to the shame of his drinking and recent arrest just days before for drink driving. He claimed that he intended to take his own life and that of his mother’s as she would not be able to live without him.

He said the drink driving incident had upset his mother as he had bought a new car and started a new job. He said Mrs Fox thought he was making a fresh start after a previous drink driving conviction.

Fox was today jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years and nine months after pleading guilty to his mother’s murder at Chester Crown Court.

Speaking after the sentencing, Detective Inspector Simon Blackwell of Cheshire Police said: ‘Paul Fox’s actions were despicable. He killed his elderly mother in the home they had shared for many years.

‘The injuries sustained by Yvonne were severe and showed that she had tried to fight off her son as he launched his brutal attack.

‘Alcohol was clearly a catalyst for his behaviour that day – he had battled with alcohol problems for many years and had refused any sort of help from family, friends or support services.

‘After being arrested for drink driving he decided that he could not handle the shame and decided to take his own life and that of his mother.

‘He consumed alcohol before he killed her and left the property and bought further alcohol after he attacked her – showing the real depths of his addiction.’

He added: ‘The pair had lived in the family home together for many years and Yvonne was a much-loved and well-respected member of the local community.

‘What happened that day was truly shocking and those living in this close knit community are still trying to come to terms with what happened. Paul Fox’s actions have had far reaching consequence for everyone involved – including him.

‘He is now behind bars for a long time where I hope he will be able to reflect upon his actions and the consequences of them.’

Richard Riley, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said: ‘This is a tragic case for all concerned. By all accounts, Paul Fox was loving son and had enjoyed a good relationship with his mother in the past.

‘He’d become addicted to drink and that had blighted his recent years and alcohol no doubt played a large part in this tragedy. Fox seemed unable to rid himself of his addiction and another drink-driving conviction was pending.

‘He seems to have become gripped by shame and self-loathing but we may never really know why a formerly good son took his mother’s life in this brutal way.’

In a statement, Mrs Fox’s family said: ‘We cannot believe that Yvonne has been taken from us in such a cruel way. It is difficult to come to terms with what happened but, as a family, we hope that the conclusion of the case at court today will allow us some closure as we try to move on with our lives.’

Brazil Cannibal Sect Makes Human-Filled Empanadas


Three people accused of killing at least three women in the northeastern Brazilian state of Pernambuco said they ate some of their victims’ flesh and also used it to make the empanadas they sold to their neighbors, police said Friday.

empanadas twoThe accused, a man and two women, were arrested Wednesday in Garanhuns, 234 kilometers (145 miles) from Recife, the state capital, and said they belonged to a sect that received orders from a “voice” to do away with women they considered evil.

The suspects confessed to the homicides, cannibalism and grisly rituals during police interrogations, some details of which were released at a press conference Friday by the officer leading the investigation, Democrito de Oliveira.

Police found the mortal remains of the two women in the patio of the suspects’ house, which was burned down Thursday by their enraged neighbors.

Investigations of the three began last month after Jorge Beltrao Negromonte da Silveira, 51, identified himself as the author of a 2009 book, “Revelations of a Schizophrenic,” in which he reveals details of the supposed sect’s activities.

Along with Da Silveira, police arrested his wife, Isabel Cristina Oliveira da Silva, and his 25-year-old mistress Bruna Cristina Oliveira da Silva, who lived with the couple.

Also living at their house was a 5-year-old girl, suspected to be the daughter of Jessica, a 17-year-old murdered in 2008 in the Recife suburb of Olinda.

Jessica’s death is described in detail in Da Silveira’s book.

“Looking at the now lifeless body of the evil adolescent, I feel relieved. I grabbed some sheet metal and begin to remove all the skin and then I divide her up…we dine on the flesh of evil as a purification ritual. We bury the remainder in the patio,” one chapter in the book reads.

Besides Jessica and the two women found buried in the patio where the accused lived, police are investigating the three for their possible guilt in at least five other homicides in Pernambuco.

Two Teen Girls Accused Of Trying To Have Man Murdered For $2000


Two Oakland County teenagers are facing life in prison after they allegedly offered undercover agents $2,000 to kill a Flint man.


Eighteen-year-old Mia Rae Buscemi and 19-year-old Dallys Emery Vogel are due in court Thursday to face charges of solicitation to commit murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Authorities say the whole thing began back in October, when the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office received information that the Waterford Township teens were attempting find a hitman to kill a Flint man.

Undercover detectives made contact with the girls and set up a meeting on Nov. 4 at a location in Waterford Township. During the meeting, police say the girls specified that they wanted a man killed and even told the detectives how they wanted it done, before offering a payment of $2,000.

After the meeting, the teens were arrested and taken to the Oakland County Jail. Police have not yet indicated why the teens wanted the man killed.

Buscemi and Vogel were arraigned Nov. 6. Both are being held on  $100,000 cash surety, no 10 percent, bonds.

Catherine Pileggi Accused Of Shooting , Slashing Throat & Bashing Head Of Her Multimillionaire Love


Jurors in the Catherine Pileggi murder trial deliberated for more than eight hours yesterday without reaching a verdict over the killing.

jsybk5Pileggi, 58, is accused of second-degree murder in the June 27, 2011, death of her long-time boyfriend, multimillionaire Ronald Vinci, in Fort Lauderdale.

According to Pileggi’s defense, Vinci, 70, had a long history of abusing Pileggi verbally, physically and sexually throughout their tumultuous relationship.

Her lawyer Bruce Udolf told the court the killing was in self-defence and portrayed Pileggi as a ‘battered spouse’.

Earlier on the night Pileggi admitted killing her partner, she claimed that Vinci held a gun to her head and told her she didn’t deserve to live, the Sun-sentinel reported.

Somewhere between 10 and 11 pm that night, as he lay in bed with a head wound from a fall down the stairs, Pileggi said she shot him, stabbed him repeatedly, slit his throat and hit him on the head with a hammer.

Prosecutor Brian Cavanagh told jurors Pileggi illegally took the law into her own hands, killing Vinci while he was unconscious and posed no threat to anyone.

Vinci was found dead in the $3 million waterfront mansion he had only moved into two weeks earlier.

Neighbours had reported hearing screams coming from the house during the early hours of the morning on the day of the incident.

Before the case went to court, Pileggi’s stepmother, who declined to give her name, had said she wouldn’t ‘hurt a fly’.

‘In all honesty, she wouldn’t even say anything that would hurt somebody’s feelings.’

Police had previously said Pileggi’s relationship with Vinci had soured before his death.

Detective Travis Mandell said: ‘We believe there was some sort of argument that ensued because Mr. Vinci had been trying to get Mrs. Pileggi out of his life.’

‘Vinci had recently moved to Florida from Rancho Santa Fe to retire and spend time with his son Kerry and his grandson.

The self-made millionaire started as a Honda motorcycle dealer in San Diego before building up a successful car dealership spread across southern California and Las Vegas.

Pileggi faces life in prison if convicted.

Deliberations will resume tomorrow.

Fishermen find human head and leg inside belly of massive shark, proclaim confidently, “This was no boating accident”


A group of Philippines fishermen said they found a partially digested human head and a leg inside the belly of a massive tiger shark.

Fishermen-say-they-found-human-head-inside-sharkBodoy Gorgod, 48, said he and four others were fishing Oct. 5 between Bohol and Camiguin islands when they reeled in the large tiger shark, which Gorgood estimated weighed more than 650 pounds.

The fisherman and his colleagues opened up the shark and found a partially digested human head and a human leg.

“It was so disgusting. We can’t bear the awful smell,” Gorgood told Minda News.

Gorgood said the group decided to keep the shark’s jaws and fins and they threw the rest, including the human remains, back into the water so as not to incur “bad luck.”

Some locals speculated the remains could have been from one of the missing passengers from the M/V Maharlika 2 ferry, which sank Sept. 13 in rough waters brought about by a tropical storm. The vessel was carrying a total of 84 people when it went down off Southern Leyte. Two male passengers remain missing.
