True DetectiveSusan Fed Her Victims To The Pigs
She was a bit odd, her Oregon neighbours agreed. But nobody could say that Susan Monica, a 66-year-old pig farmer, neglected her animals. In fact, she valued her pigs more than she valued people, she was told at her trial for two murders.
A routine inquiry triggered the case. Susan Monica was trying to use food stamps issued to her handyman, a shopkeeper told the authorities.
The handyman was 56-year-old Bob Haney, the Oregon police learned, and he hadn’t been seen around for a while. So they went to Susan’s 20-acre farm at Rogue River, to begin digging. And on January 13th, 2014, they found the remains of two men.
Bob Haney was one of them, and the other was Steve Delicino, 59, who had worked for Susan two years earlier. Delicino had died in August 2012, Haney in September 2013. Both had been shot in the head and dismembered.
According to Susan, four of her pigs had dragged Delicino’s body into their adjacent pen, licking the blood from his head. She had left him for a couple of weeks while the pigs picked his bones clean. Then she had buried his skull and other bones.
She had stumbled across Haney’s body a year later, she said. Already disembowelled, he was being eaten alive by the pigs, so she went to get her gun. “That was the only thing I could think of to put him out of his misery,” she said.
Questioned by detectives, Susan admitted that she had fed both men to her pigs. “Pigs always need something to eat,” she said...Read the startling full report in True Detective September – out now! more »
True CrimeJodi Arias: Torrid Sex And A “Psycho” Bloodbath
Travis Alexander and his girlfriend Jodi Arias had a torrid love life. They exchanged a staggering 82,000 emails. That’s about 200 a day, every day including weekends, while the romance lasted. But it all swiftly degenerated, and when it was over Travis claimed that Jodi had stalked him and had slashed his car tyres twice.
In the final days before their volcano cooled, Alexander called her a “sociopath,” and “the worst thing that ever happened to me” He was afraid of her, he added.
All this was happening in Mesa, an Arizona city with a population of half a million The vortex of passion that transformed the lives of Travis Alexander and Jodi Arias was to catapult the city into all-American headlines after Travis was found dead in his shower, shot, stabbed 27 times, and with his throat slit. One of the stab wounds had penetrated so deeply into his neck that it almost decapitated him.
“I did it,” Jodi finally admitted after multiple denials. “It was self-defence...” Read the full case report in True Crime August – out now… more »
Master DetectiveFrom The Samaritans To The Electric Chair
He was a handsome student, charming, articulate and brimming with self-confidence. Success was his for the choosing, but the vocation Ted Bundy chose is not to be found in any careers book. While his fellow-students set their sights on becoming lawyers, architects, doctors and accountants, Bundy secretly devoted himself to something totally different.
Serial killing was what appealed to him, and the random nature of his murders would make him difficult to catch. In his four-year orgy of sex attacks committed right across the United States, he killed at least 23 women. The actual figure may be as high as 40, and Bundy boasted that the accurate total was “in three digits.”
When he went to the electric chair on January 24th, 1989, after some 10 years on Death Row, Americans celebrated by holding parties, wearing T-shirts emblazoned: “Burn, Bundy, Burn.” A local disc jockey urged listeners to turn off their coffee pots so that “Sparky can have more juice.”
And at the moment of Bundy’s death thousands of spectators outside the prison roared their approval, drivers hooting their horns, while a nearby bar served Bundy “fries” and Bundy “toast,” with a sign above reading: “Roast in Peace.” Read the full report and find out – in Master Detective September – on sale nowmore »
Murder Most FoulUnsolved: Who Killed TV’s Colonel Hogan?
Bob Crane had become a household name as Colonel Hogan, the wisecracking prisoner of war in TV’s Hogan’s Heroes. Although his career had gone into decline after the long series ended, even in 1978 he was still able to make $200,000 a year touring in plays. Now though, he was dead.
What was beyond dispute was that Bob Crane never knew what hit him. This was apparently a heavy blunt instrument such as a tyre lever, and the medical examiner said that the actor had been struck twice on the side of the head as he slept.
The pathologist added that the attack had taken place in the early hours of June 29th, and the depth of the skull-crushing wounds indicated that the killer was a man of considerable strength.
Detectives speculated that the killer had taken his time. The murder appeared to have been well-planned, with no sign of haste or frenzy. Bob Crane had received extensive skull fractures and brain damage, and to ensure the victim was dead the killer had tied a length of flex from a video camera in the room around the actor’s neck.
As the investigation progressed, this final touch with the video camera cord seemed symbolic. Nearly 50 videotapes were found in the apartment. They showed Crane having sex with a variety of women, and this prompted the suspicion that the killer was the husband or boyfriend of one of the females depicted…Read our report on this intriguing case in Murder Most Foul 97…
