Oklahoma Death Row Inmate Executed Tuesday For The Murder of Three People

Steven Ray Thacker, now 42, was sentenced to death for the murders of three people during the Holiday Season in 1999. He was put to death by lethal injection Yesterday, March 12, 2013 at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary, after sitting on death row for 13 years.

Victim #1: On December 23, 1999 Laci Dawn Griffin Hill, 25, from Bixby, OK. Hill had placed a classified ad in the local newspaper in an attempt to sell her pool table. Thacker spotted the ad and figured it was a good opportunity so he answered the ad and made his way to Hill’s home where he raped, murdered and robbed her. Hill’s body was discovered in an abandoned cabin on December 29, 1999, just two days before the New Years Day 2000. Thacker used the items and money he had stolen from Hill and purchased presents for his wife and her two children. His would claim the lives of two more people until his capture on January 2, 2000.

Authorities soon identified Thacker on surveillance camera using Hill’s debit card but by then he had already made his way to his next victim in the neighboring state of Missouri, approximately 200 miles from Bixby.

Victim #2: On New Years Day 2000 Thacker stabbed Forrest Reed Boyd, 25, after Boyd walked in on Thacker burglarizing his Aldrich, MO home. He stole Boyd’s vehicle and made his way down to Dyersburg, Tennessee.

Victim #3: Ray Patterson, 52, was a tow truck driver Dyersburg, TN. It just so happens that he was working at the time Thacker’s stolen vehicle broke down.  He contacted the tow service and when Patterson noticed the credit card used to pay for the service was stolen, he was stabbed to death.

Thacker received two death sentences for the murders of Hill and Paterson. He received life without parole for pleading guilty to killing Boyd.

According to reports, he had a personality disorder but refused medication which would have helped his mood swings.

When asked if he had any last words he went on to apologize for his actions.

“”I would like to apologize sincerely to the families of Laci Hill, Forrest Boyd and Ray Patterson. I don’t deserve it, but as God has forgiven me, I hope you will forgive me for the pain I’ve caused.”

Thacker then winked at his stepfather, Donald Johnston, who silently nodded back at him. He was administered the lethal cocktails moments later at 6:03PM. He was pronounced dead at 6:10PM

When the execution was over, Nikki Hodgson, a friend of Hill’s, spoke about the experience saying it brought “a little bit of closure,” but that she didn’t believe the punishment was just.

“It is so humane,” she said of lethal injection. Thacker is “just going to sleep. It’s nothing like what the victims endured.”

“When something like this happens … you never truly move on. You just survive. It never leaves you, and this won’t make it leave you,” Marnie Reed, Hill’s best friend said after the execution.

According to the Death Penalty Information Website, last year there were 43 people on Oklahoma’s death row. Six were put to death bringing the toll down to 37, and Thacker is the first to be put to death this year which brings the toll to 36. He was the fifth death row inmate to have been put to death in the United States this year.

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.

In St Martin, Missouri nine year old girl Elizabeth Olten innocently playing at her best  friends house not even 1000 ft from her own home was murdered and hidden by her best friends 15 year old sister. From my understanding the 15 year old did not  only murder but had pre-meditated the brutal attack. The child 9 year old Elizabeth Olter  was at her friends house and started heading home before her curfew. Alyssa Bustamante, the older sister of Elizabeth’s best friend, lured her to a nearby wooded area, where she  murdered the young girl by stabbing and choking her, then finally slitting her throat. She then went through great lengths to conceal her body, she already had two shallow graves dugged up, she placed the nine year old in one of them. The body was hidden just feet away from where police found  Elizabeth’s cell phone. There was a huge search for the missing girl and many feared that adult predator was on the loose. Police started combing the neiborhood and going door to door. They also made it a point to question local sex offenders living within so many miles of the neiborhood where the young girl went missing. It took police 3 days to find the culprit, who then led police to the young girls grave.

Alyssa was a disturbed young teen. With both parents in jail for seperate crimes, she was living with her grandparents who raised her in a loving, religious household. They tried getting her involved in Church, but Alyssa was going threw, what they thought, was a ”rebel” stage. She dressed goth and was described as depressed. At the time of the murder, she had a youtube account which listed ”killing” as one of her hobbies. It also had videos, showing the young laughing as her two younger brothers touched a fench that gave them a ”shock” of electricity. In the video, in which Alyssa was taping, you could hear the teenager laughing and egging them on, she then touches the fence herself.

A best friend of Alyssa stated to Police, after the teens arrest, that she (Alyssa) would always speak of death and drugs, she also asked her if she ever thought about killing someone. The friend was taken aback, and according to her, started slowly distancing herself from Alyssa.

Alyssa had a diary in which she talked about the murders. and she even had a photo that she drew of two graves. Police wondered why she dug two graves and if they were originally intended for her younger brothers.

It didn’t take long for police to question and arrest Alyssa. She confessed rather quickly and lead Investigators to the grave. It was an emotional time for the family, friends and community. Such a thing never happened in town.

Alyssa has pleaded ‘Not Guilty’ for the Murder of Elizabeth Olten.
