Saw Marks Found on Slain Girl

Eric tipped me off this morning to a story I (hopefully) would’ve missed otherwise. If you have a weak stomach, or are currently eating/drinking, don’t click this link or read any farther. The Washington Post story gets pretty gruesome with details.

“Regarding a potential motive, this appears to have been part of a plan to kidnap a person, rape them, torture them, kill them, cut off their head, drain the body of blood, rape the corpse, eat the corpse, then dispose of the organs and bones,” the police chief said.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents seized a decorative dagger, a hack saw, duct tape, meat tenderizer, barbecue skewers, a duffel bag, the cutting board, a computer, and a videotape about a serial killer, Tompkins said.

Not surprisingly, the prosecution has said that they plan to seek the death penalty. One picture of the back of the girl’s neck, showing the hacksaw marks, should convince the jury pretty easily.
