Eliza Jane Davis was a 15-year-old teenager from the small coal mining town of Collie, located in Western Australia. She was murdered by two of her ”best-friends” on June 18th, 2006, after going to a party with them the night before. It was reported that the trio took cannabis and methamphetamine at the party but not enough to affect their sense of right and wrong.
The two teens who were both 17-years-old at the time they committed the murders, were not named due to legal reasons but told police at the time, that they always wanted to kill somebody and one even practiced by killing two baby kittens. They said they don’t know why they did it and didn’t feel bad. They went on to say it just ”felt right.”
On Saturday night, June 18th, 2006, the three of them left a party and walked home and fell asleep. When the two killers woke up, they decided to kill Eliza and plotted on what they were going to do. They were going to wait but one of the girls had to return to Perth that afternoon and wanted a quick, ”non-messy” killing.
“Sunday morning me and (her) woke up, and we were just talking, and for some reason we just decided to kill her,” one of the girls would later tell police in an interview.
The girls planned their attack and changed into old clothes.

One of the girl’s snuck up behind Eliza as she was reading a book, wrapped speaker wire twice around her throat and quickly tightened it as the other held her down, trying to press a chemical soaked cloth into her mouth.

“She started not being able to get her breath,and we just kept going,” one of the girls said.

“She was just yelling at us `‘What the f**k, what are you doing.” `Oh you freaks, what’s wrong with you psychos.”

She begged her the people she thought were her ”friends” to stop but her plea’s fell on deaf ears.

The girl’s buried her in a shallow grave under her home and reported her missing. They acted as if nothing happened, even going as far as to help Eliza’s loved ones search for her.

They both turned themselves in several days later, walking into separate police stations and directing authorities to where they buried Eliza’s body. They were both interviewed and arrested. It isn’t really clear as to what made them turn themselves in.
We didn’t really expect to get away with it but were willing to take the risk.”
Asked why they did it, and if they felt bad. The teen’s went on to explain:

”We just did it because we felt like it, it is hard to explain,”

“I knew we had wanted to kill someone before. We knew it was wrong, but it didn’t feel wrong at all, it just felt right.”

“As our friend, we did not really want her to suffer,” one told police.

Both of them did however, regret the fuss that the killing brought, but didn’t regret murdering their ”friend” nor did they feel any remorse. “If she had died another way it probably would have bothered me, but it just did not,” one girl said.

The two teen’s appeared in Perth Children’s Court and again showed zero remorse. They were sentenced to serve a minimum of fifteen years to life. In 2008 both were moved to an adult prison and are currently serving their sentence for the cruel murder of their friend.

Texas executed its ninth prisoner of 2012 today

Cleve Foster speaking with visitor threw death-row phone

Texas executed its ninth prisoner of 2012 today after death row inmate Cleve Foster, 48, failed to obtain a last-minute stay from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Foster was convicted in 2002 of helping his roommate, Sheldon Ward, kill a Fort Worth, Texas, woman and hide her body in the woods. Ward, however, wrote a death-bed note before he died in prison saying that he’d acted alone, and Foster had nothing to do with the murder.

Foster has maintained his innocence, but didn’t mention that as he was executed. Instead, according to The Associated Press, he expressed love for his family and God before the drugs took effect, he began snoring and then he stopped breathing.

“When I close my eyes, I’ll be with the father,” he said. “God is everything. He’s my life. Tonight I’ll be with him.”

He turned to relatives of his victims and said, “I don’t know what you’re going to be feeling tonight. I pray we’ll all meet in Heaven.”

Foster has been scheduled to die four times over the past year but has received three stays of execution from the Texas Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Foster was hoping the country’s high court would step in and give him one more stay. But instead, it cleared the way for his execution with a brief decision just hours before the lethal injection was administered at 6:43 p.m. CT.

In the following pages, take a closer look at 2012’s death row inmates — and their final statements of innocence, acceptance or praise for their beloved Texas Rangers baseball team. Their statements were recorded by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Article written and published last year on January 12th, 2011 – One day after Cleve Foster’s last-minute stay:

The former Army recruiter was suppose to be executed January 11th, 2011 but had received a last-minute stay of execution from the Supreme Court. Foster was arrested, convicted and sentenced to death-row for the rape and murder of a 30-year-old Sudanese woman in Fort Worth, TX nine years prior. He had always insisted that his friend and former roommate, Sheldon Ward, who was also condemned for the killing, acting alone in the murder of Nyaneur Pal, who was shot in the head and dumped in a ditch in Tarrant County. Ward died of cancer in prison May, 2010.

Foster’s attorneys had asked the Supreme Court to stop the execution on the grounds that trial attorneys failed to get testimony from a blood spatter expert to counter a detective’s testimony that Ward couldn’t have killed and moved Pal’s body by himself.

“The state of Texas is on the verge of executing an innocent man,” attorney Clint Broden told the court.

In the court’s brief order to halt the execution, two Justices indicated that they would have allowed the punishment to proceed.

More than 60 protesters were gathered at the Texas Capitol last night. They rejoiced when they heard the news of the of the stay of execution by phone call from other protesters gathered outside the prison in Huntsville where Texas does its killing.

Foster would have been the first person to be executed in Texas this year had the stay not been granted.

Teen Murdered Former Girlfriend For ”Bet And Free Lunch”

Actual murder took place in October, 2010.

 

Relaxing with his girlfriend, he looks the picture of innocence. Yet not long after this picture was taken with Rebecca Aylward, Joshua Davies battered her to death.

Davies, 16, lured his ex-girlfriend to a secluded spot where he killed her to win a bet over a free breakfast.

Rebecca, 15, and her mother Sonia had both been delighted when Davies, an academically gifted boy from a  churchgoing family, arranged to meet her again.

When her daughter failed to come home, Mrs Aylward’s reaction was to tell  her sister not to worry adding: ‘She’s safe, she’s with Josh’.

By that time Rebecca had been bludgeoned with a rock the size of a rugby  ball – and Davies was trying to cover his tracks on Facebook.

He failed – and was yesterday found guilty of murder.

The chilling case highlighted how he used the internet, text messages and an array of social networking sites to plot her death.

A few weeks before the murder, one of his friends had joked that he would ‘buy him breakfast’ if he carried out his threat.

Two days before he killed Rebecca, Davies told him: ‘You may have to buy me a breakfast.’

Mr Justice Lloyd  Jones lifted an order preventing the killer from being named and photographed, saying it was in the public interest that he should be  identified.

And Rebecca’s family issued a statement at Swansea Crown Court saying their lives had ‘stopped’ on the day in October 2010 when she was murdered.

‘Rebecca was killed in a senseless and barbaric act,’ they said. ‘She died at the hands of someone she loved and trusted.

‘We will never forget what he did to her or forgive him for destroying our family.’

Rebecca and Davies, from Aberkenfig,  near Bridgend, met at the age of 11 and began going out together in late 2009 but the relationship soured and was ended by Rebecca after three  months.

The following  October he asked to see her again. ‘Rebecca was quite happy to meet up  with him – she thought he was going to ask her back out,’ her mother  told the court.

‘She got up at 6am to get ready and to do her make-up. She put on her new clothes, bought the day before.  ‘Rebecca sounded really happy when she saw it was him coming down the hill towards her. ”I wanted to make sure it was him so I got Rebecca to say his full name twice.’

When the couple were alone, 6ft Davies repeatedly slammed a rock into Rebecca’s head before leaving her bloodied and battered body face-down on a wet forest floor.

He then took a friend, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to the scene to show him her body.

Davies told him: ‘Do you know how hard it is to break someone’s neck? She was facing away from me and I thought, “This is it, I’m going to go for it”.

‘I tried to break her neck. She was screaming so I picked up the rock and started to hit her with it. The worst part was feeling and seeing her skull give way.’

He then updated his Facebook page saying he was at home at the time of the murder, and after Rebecca had been reported missing even expressed his own fears for her welfare.  He then made plans to return to the forest near his home on the night of the murder to bury Rebecca’s body and even attempted to pin the blame on the friend he led to the scene, using it as his defence during the trial.

Police were alerted to the killing after one of Davies’s friends told his parents and led officers to the body.

Other friends told detectives that  Davies was a ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ character who was ‘fixated’ on murder and would threaten to kill anyone who crossed him.

They said that most of the time, Davies, who lived with his shop assistant  mother Hayley and mechanic father Steven, was a confident and outgoing  schoolboy in all the top sets who dreamed of becoming Prime Minister.

But he also had a ‘dark and sinister’ side that would surface when he fell out with people and was extremely ‘jealous and possessive’ of Rebecca.

Shortly after she ended their relationship he began spreading vicious rumours  about her having an abortion and trying to get pregnant to keep him following the break-up.

He would share his threats and scheming with his friends on social  networking sites and over text messaging, using textspeak to communicate.

The jury were given a list of text sayings and symbols to help them understand the conversations between the teenagers.

Davies was obsessed with violent films and his Bebo page lists his favourites, including ‘There Will Be Blood,’ in which Daniel Day-Lewis bludgeons a  man to death with a bowling pin.

 

He also told friends he was going to drown Rebecca in a river or throw her off a cliff and dump her body in a hole, inspired by the violent Spartan fantasy film 300.

He said: ‘Wouldn’t it be easier if she wasn’t here? I am going to kill her – it would be real easy.’

He even bought a toxic foxglove concoction that he said he was going to put in her drink so she would ‘die in her own filth’.

But despite all the warning signs, none of his friends believed he would actually carry out his threats.

Lifting an order preventing Davies being named and pictured because of his age, Mr Justice Lloyd Jones said: ‘This is a crime in a small and closely-knit community and it’s right that the public should know there has been a conviction and who has been convicted.

‘I accept that the weight given to the welfare of the boy changes now he has been convicted of a very serious offence.’

What would you do if I DID kill her… teenage murderer’s chilling text message to friend

Joshua Davies and his teenage friends inhabited their own online world in which the line between fiction and reality often became blurred.

They would use textspeak, jargon and symbols in a language so impenetrable that the jury had to be given translations.

The apparently playful way in which the schoolchildren communicated – in sentences peppered with smiley faces and symbols – belied the sinister nature of Davies’s intentions.

Rebecca even bought new clothes for the 'date' unaware Davies had been boasting to his friends how easy it would be to kill her.

In the months and weeks leading up to Rebecca’s murder, he would post messages on social networking sites including Facebook, MSN Messenger and Bebo, saying he wanted to kill Rebecca.

His friends would respond to these  sickening threats in jest, often egging him  on in the mistaken belief that he was  messing around.

But Davies was deadly serious and continued sending the messages until just days before he battered her to death in a woodland clearing.

Before he left to meet his ex-girlfriend on the day of the murder he told one friend: ‘The time has come.’

He also goes on to say: ‘What would you do if I actually did kill her?’

The friend replies: ‘Oh, I would buy you breakfast.’

Two days before the brutal murder Davies says: ‘Don’t say anything but you may just owe me a breakfast.’

His friend replies: ‘Best text I have ever had mate. Seriously, if it is true I am happy to pay for a breakfast. I want all the details. You sadistic bastard.’

The text finishes with a smiley face symbol.

The friend, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said in court that he did not believe Davies and had not known how his texts would be taken, suggesting an extraordinary disconnect between the online world and reality.

‘I didn’t mean I wanted him to kill her,’ he said. ‘I thought he was only joking so I was messing about with him.

‘I honestly didn’t think he was going to do it – I was just playing along.’

Davies posted Facebook updates saying he was ‘just chilling with my two friends’ while watching Strictly Come Dancing to imply he was at home at the time the murder took place.

He later posted the Facebook status update: ‘I enjoyed a rather good day and a lovely breakfast’, in a clear reference to the bet he had made with his friend.

And he posted his own concerned messages on Facebook after Rebecca was reported missing, suggesting he was  genuinely worried and giving her family no cause to suspect he was involved.

‘I feel sorry for her mother,’ the murderer wrote on Facebook.

When asked why, he replied: ‘Well if I was a parent I’d be worried if my daughter was missing.’

RIDICULOUS CRIME; Kidnapper Sues Victims for Not Hiding Him From Police

Jesse Dimmick (pictured above) attempted to seek $235,000 in damages from Jared and Lindsay Rowley of Kansas over what he says is a ”breach of contract.” He claims that the newlyweds, whom he held hostage at knife point during a home invasion in 2009 at the couples Topeka home, had agreed to hide him from police (who wanted him over a murder charge in Colorado) in return for a sum of money. Dimmick was eating the couples food and watching Patch Adams he fell asleep, and the couple used that moment to escape and call police.

Dimmick’s defense was that he and the couple had an ”oral agreement” and the couple broke that agreement.

In a notarized legal document, Dimmick claims that the pair did not deliver on their promises:

Later, the Rowleys reneged on said oral contract, resulting in my being shot in
the back by authorities.

He described the physical and financial hardships that he faced as a result of their alleged failure to hold up their end of the bargain:

As a result of the plaintiffs breech (sic) of contract, I, the defendant suffered a gunshot to my back, which almost killed me. The hospital bills alone are in excess of $160,000, which I have no way to pay.

Dimmick was charged with and convicted of four felonies, including kidnapping.
He is currently also being held on one charge of murder.

The couple has stated that they never accepted any money from Dimmick.

Dimmick was charged with and convicted of four felonies, including kidnapping.
He has also been sentenced to 11 years in connection to the September, 2009 beating death of a Colorado man.

Mother Who Tortured And Killed Daughter, Nine, Sentenced 15 Years To Life In Prison

A year and a half ago Elizabeth Holloway, moved in with her mother, her mother’s boyfriend and half sister and brother.  A year and a half ago, Elizabeth began being abused by her mother.  A year and a half ago, Elizabeth was 7 and ½ years old and had no idea that by 9-years-old she’d be telling her younger sister she was dying…. and would.

Pictured; Elizabeth Holloway, Nine.

Imagine you are 7 and ½ years old and you are moving in with your mother and siblings, exciting right?  It’s a new start that includes a sister and a brother, what could be bad about that?  I’ll tell you what could be bad about that… a mother that reportedly begins to beat you as soon as you move in.

According to police reports Elizabeth lived with her father until 17 months ago when she moved in with her mother Crystal Cardenas (25).  At which time it appears she became her mother’s personal punching bag enduring numerous incidents of abuse.  In the 17 months she lived with her mother she was reportedly choked, punched, kicked, burned and thrown to the ground.  Poor thing, I just want to hug her so bad!  A few days before her death on January 17th, Crystal reportedly punched and kicked Elizabeth, causing a bruised pancreas and transection of her intestines. These injuries would have resulted in Elizabeth dying “a very slow and painful death,” according to prosecutors.  Elizabeth experienced vomiting and loss of feeling in her lower extremities.  She told her 7-year-old half sister she felt like she was going to die.  Now that statement right there just does it for me, I can not imagine the fear she must have felt at 9-years-old and literally thinking she was going to die and having NO ONE to go to.  This little girl knew she was dying… it breaks my heart!

 Pictured; Crystal Cardenas, 25, setenced to 15 month’s to life in prison.

On January 17th San Diego Police were called at approximately 10:00 pm with a report of a child not breathing.  Paramedics arrived and took Elizabeth to the trauma center; she died at 11:56 pm.  The SDPD child abuse unit was originally handling her case, but the autopsy showed she died from blunt force trauma and the case was handed over to homicide.

After a thorough investigation, that included interviewing the family, extended family, neighbors, former neighbors and people at the school Elizabeth attended, the DA’s office and SDPD concluded that Elizabeth’s mother Crystal was the one who inflicted the abuse and caused the death of her daughter.

Cardenas’ other two children are under the care of CPS.

Cardenas faces 25 years to life, if convicted of murder.  The preliminary hearing is set for February 16th.
