Serial Killer who chopped up his victims and sold their flesh to Chinese markets is finally executed

01/10/13, CHINA — A Chinese serial killer was finally executed today after spending six months in a Chinese jail for the murder and dismemberment of eleven Jinning County residents.

March, 2008 thru April, 2012, Zhang Yongming, 57, strangled eleven boys and young men, all residents of Jinning County. After murdering his victims, he would chopped them to pieces and then sell their flesh as ostrich meat at the local market. He would then burn any leftovers in an attempt to destroy evidence.

He was finally arrested in the beginning of May, 2012 in Nanmen village which is located in Yunnan province. He was investigated over the murder of one of his last victims, a 19-year-old man. When police searched his home they found the young man’s cellphone, credit card, etc, but the most gruesome discovery was numerous eyeballs being preserved in wine bottles. Which is a traditional practice in the Asian culture with snakes, to make “snake wine” and dried human meat.

After discovering the evidence, Zhang was immediately arrested and the following month he was sentenced to death by Kunming Intermediate People’s Court.

The court deemed his acts “extremely cruel” and that the consequences were going to be “extremely serious.” He was also denied his political rights for the rest of his (short) life.

This isn’t the first time Zhang was sentenced to death. He was given a death sentence with a two-year reprieve for homicide in 1979 when he was 24 years old. He was released in September 1997 at age 42 after receiving a number of several sentence reductions. But despite having his life saved and getting a plot of land and compensation from the government, Zhang continued to commit crimes.

In his village, Zhang was known as a “Cannibal Monter”. But despite the suspicion of other village goers, and the fact that he had already been sentenced to death and released, he was able to get away with multiple murders over a four-year time span.

The other villagers told a local reporter that they had witnessed what they believed to be white bones protruding from the top of green bags, which were hanging from Zhang’s home.

According to MailOnline, Beijing administration refuses to publish its execution statistics and is believed to have the highest rates in the world. The latest report from Amnesty International predicts ‘thousands’ every year, whilst U.S.-based advocacy group the Duihua foundation estimated that 4,000 prisoners were executed in 2011.

Disabled Child Decapitated: Dad was tired of caring for him

Disabled Child: Dad was tired of caring for him

Pictured: Jori Lirette was murdered on August 12th, 2011 by his father who then left his severed head on the front-yard.

THIBODAUX, LA. – A Louisiana man murdered his disabled 7-year-old son by bludgeoning, decapitating and dismembering him on August 12th, 2011. He then left the boy’s head near the street so the child’s mother would see it — a killing that brought seasoned police officers to tears, authorities said on August 13th, 2011.

Jeremiah Lee Wright, 30, of Thibodaux waived his right to an attorney and confessed to killing Jori Lirette within 30 minutes of being brought to the police station. Wright was booked with first-degree murder and held in lieu of $5 million bond.

He was in isolation due to the severity of the crime commited.

After news broke out about the horiffic crime, flowers, balloons and stuffed animals were left outside the house where Jori died. “He was maybe the best thing that ever happened to me,” his mother, Jesslyn Lirette said.

A preliminary autopsy found the boy was bludgeoned, decapitated and dismembered. Whatever hit him caused “excessive bleeding in the head.” Wright told Investigators “that he’d gotten to the point where he was tired of taking care” of the boy, who had cerebral palsy and heart problems, needed a feeding tube, had limited speech and was in a wheelchair.”

Wright also told Investigators “He said when he put his head out by the side of the road it was so the mother would see it when she came by,” Silverii said. He said Wright’s only explanation for doing so was “just that he wanted her to feel stupid when she saw the head.”

Jori’s feet and one hand also were cut off, recovered with the body in several white plastic garbage bags. The slaying was the first in Thibodaux since 2008.

The boy was decapitated over the kitchen sink, which was sent to the Louisiana State Police crime lab along with a box of tools found nearby. Wright told investigators he began killing the boy about 30 minutes after Lirette had left Sunday to repair her pickup truck so she could take Jori to a doctor appointment later that week.

It wasn’t the first Police have been called to the house. Last month when the couple had an argument about money, neither person brought charges. Wright had been arrested a few times previously, though he was never charged with violent crimes. Wright served 10 days for theft in 2005.

Jesslyn Lirette and Jeremiah Wright had been together for 10 years, but according to Jesslyn, she had planned on leaving Wright for sometime. “I didn’t get out fast enough,” she said.

A friend of Jeremiah Wright, Mark Chatagnier, told a media that Wright was unemployed and that Lirette often left him to care for Jori, even when she was not working. “She would take off and totally expect Jerry to do everything,” Chatagnier said.

Lirette denied that. She said she cared for another disabled person to pay household bills and was still around to care for her son, who had been born three months premature, could say only a few words and weighed no more than 50 pounds when he died.

“He was my star. No matter what people think or say, he was always top priority in my life,” Lirette said through tears during a news conference. “I’ve done everything I can for him.”

When Lirette returned from fixing the truck, she found her home blocked by police tape.

When she identified herself,  they told her what happened. “These are experienced men. They came out of there in tears. Just absolutely in tears.”

Grief counselors from the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office also spent time with Jesslyn.

South Thibodaux Elementary School, where Jori was a second-grader, was “a very somber place” Monday, Aug 13th, 2011, the day after Jori was murdered. Counselors were on hand there and at other schools where people knew Jori, he said. The school has 560 students, including 84 second-graders and 18 in special education across all grades.

Jori had attended South Thibodaux since pre-kindergarten, principal Diane Smith said. “Everyone loved him. Even though he could not express in words his feelings to us, he did it with his smile,” she said.

Lirette, who began her statement with a plea for privacy, ended with a message to her son:

“In Heaven I believe you’re a beautiful star and you will always shine bright inside my heart, inside everybody’s heart. If I could go back and change yesterday, I would. But I can’t.

“You will be missed and loved by everyone and we will pray every day in your honor. Love you, Mom.”

Woman Tortured, Raped, Killed and Dismembered By Friend She Trusted

Brittany Killgore

Brittany Killgore (Pictured) Was Murdered On April 13th By A ”Friend” She Trusted

Brittany Killgore, age 22, from Fallbrook, California was A wife of U.S Marine Lance Corporal Cory Killgore who was deployed in Afghanistan, filed divorce three days before her murder in April, 2012. She was planning on moving back to her parents who lived in Missouri and had already packed all her belongings.

On April 13th, 2012 Louis Perez, 46, came to her home unexpectedly and told her he wanted to take her out on a surprise dinner-cruise. Brittany knew Louis as a friend and trusted him and willingly went along. Little did she know, she was about to become a victim in his sadistic fantasy.

Louis was angry at Brittany, unbeknownst to her, for refusing to participate in a sex-bondage ‘game’ with him and his two sex-partners, Dorothy Maraglino and Jessica Lynn Lopez, whom he shared a house with. The group was in a master sex-slave ring unbeknownst to Brittany who had no idea that the man she trusted was about to forcefully make her a ‘slave’ in part of his sick act.

Perez lured Brittany to his car under the pretense of ”helping her pack”. She willingly got in his car, not thinking that her ”friend” had a secret life that he was about to forcefully expose to her.

She was then brought to his house, kept against her will, tied up, and had duct-tape placed on her mouth to muffle her screams. What happened next was horrific and cruel.

The group violently raped her in what one would call a ‘sadomasochistic torture session’. They used S&M sex-‘toys’ including whips and a stun-gun which Police would later find at the house the three resided in. Police also said Brittany’s blood and hair were found on numerous S&M items located in Perez’s home. Also located was a handbook titled ”Sex Rules” which listed some of the sadistic things they do and expect their victim to do.

During the torture session the group also mutilated Brittany, when they were done they killed her, dismembered her and placed her remains in a Ditch In San Diego, CA.

Articles written back in April made false assumptions claiming Brittany willingly participated in the sex-game, not knowing it would get out of hand. Those rumors are false. Brittany was not into S&M sex and would park-take in such an act.

After hearing about the disappearance of his wife, Lance Killgore flew back from Afghanistan. I’m not sure if he knew at the time that Brittany Killgore had just filed for divorce three-days prior.
