The Child Abuse Murder of Eli Johnson

Eli Johnson, 3,  lived with his mother Tye N. Shafer Johnson and her boyfriend Eddie E. Valdez. Eli’s mom knew abuse was going on in the home but never did anything to prevent it. After all, if she tried to stop her man he might leave right? If he left who would keep her bed warm or pay the bills?

Perhaps I shouldn’t be so hard on mama, she did after all say that they had “talked” about how “rough” he was and told him she didn’t really like it much.

Before I go into the exact event that killed little Eli on that September day in 2009 I want to mention one of the departments that I’ve found to be involved in this family’s life. Oklahoma Department of Human Services. They came into contact with Tye and her children for the first time on November 6, 2008. 9 months before Eli was tortured and beaten to death, and maybe sexually abused. Those charges were never founded or admitted but how else do you explain pubic hair in a 3-year-olds underwear and on his genitals? I only found that mentioned in one document and it was never spoke of again.

When OKDHS received their first referral the complainant said Eli had multiple bruises on his bottom while in the care of his mother Tye. The person calling said the biological father took Eli to the hospital and the doctor told him to make a police report. The report was filed and pictures were taken.

It took 5 days for OKDHS to reach Tye and the kids because they were delaying contact with the agency. OKDHS interviewed Tye, the children’s father, the paternal grandmother and 3 witnesses and also observed the kids.

Eli had bruises that were nearly gone by this time on his behind, upper back and around his eye. They also stated in their report that the doctor noted seeing “what appears to be finger length projections extending onto the right buttock and another separate small yellow bruise over the right SI area” and a “small superficial laceration over the lateral left eyelid.”

After OKDHS finished their observation of the Johnson children they offered “Confirm-Services” and Tye agreed to accept help.

On December 11, 2008 OKDHS noted in their files that they had not received a referral to provide those services.

On January 7, 2009 there was a note that the case worker was working with Tye on anger-management for the last 3 weeks and the 8th was the last contact they had with Tye until after Eli was dead.

That note from the 8th stated that they recommended the father not to allow the kids to go back to the mother until she complete preventive services. OKDHS told her that she would have supervised visitation until she completed some of the preventative services, after that she would regain her regular custody schedule. Tye agreed and signed the voluntary services agreement.

On December 11th there was another note in OKDHS files that stated there was communications with the district attorney’s office, the current safety plan needed to be amended to comply with the court order granting visitation between Tye and the kids. The note also said Tye hadn’t started any preventative services to regain normal custody.

The amended safety plan allowed Eli and Candra to be with their mom during the day if an adult was in their presence, at night they went to their father’s. The kids mother and biological father agreed to the mother’s boyfriend, Eddie or his sister supervising the mother’s visits.

Tye told OKDHS she abused Eli, not Eddie.

Evelyn Johnson, the kids great-granddaughter told reporters that OKDHS gave the kids back to Tye after she took anger-management classes.

The next OKDHS complaint came after Eli was already dead.

Eli was 3-years-old on September 16, 2009 when he was brought into Itegris Southwest Medical Center. Baby Eli was covered in bruises on his arms, legs, upper stomach, face, forehead, and genitals and he had cuts and sores on his lips. Eli was pronounced dead within 20 minutes.

Eddie and Tye both were taken to the police station were Eddie told investigators that he beat Eli after becoming “enraged” at him for pottying in his pants and because Eli would not listen to him. He continuously punched Eli in the stomach with full force.

After punching Eli in the stomach he lost all control and began attacking him all over his body. He then sat him on the toilet and told him he’d better use the bathroom. Eddie then left the bathroom for a little bit leaving Eli to sit there, to let him think about his hideous behavior. 3-year-olds should not be having accidents and Eddie expected Eli to get that through his head.

When Eddie returned he was furious, little Eli was on the bathroom floor “playing”, not sitting on the toilet where he’d commanded him earlier. Eddie saw red and lost control again. In a police report he told an investigator that he “blacked out” and no longer had control over himself. He has no idea how many times he hit 3-year-old Eli Johnson. Eddie says he did not “come to” until he saw Eli’s head in the toilet.

Afterwards, Eddie imposed a time-out on Eli by forcing him to stand on his toes with his hands behind his back but Eli could not do this because he was too weak from his beatings so Eddie put him on a kitchen table and made him do it there. Eddie must have thought he would have more leverage there.

Eli’s choice was to stand on his toes, hands behind his back or fall on his face 4 feet to the ground. Eli fell, numerous times. This infuriated Eddie more, Eli was faking and Eddie wasn’t in the mood for a 3-year-olds games, Eddie picked him up by his arms, held him out and dropped him at least twice but it could have been more.

During Tye’s interview with investigators she says that she heard her man giving her baby boy a “spanking” for having an accident in his pants but she had taken a Lortab (prescription pain pill) and was chillin’ on the couch while her son was, in her words, “screaming and crying more than usual.” She then decided she would go and see what was up and that’s when she saw bumps, lumps and bruises all over Eli, especially his little head. She told Eddie that he was going to far. Tye said she loved Eddie and thought he would change.

They resumed their day as a loving couple. Eddie’s brother Robert Valdez was there the whole time, he chose to go about his routine to. There were other kids in the home to.

Eli began throwing up everywhere and wasn’t being his happy, normal self. This went on for 5 hours, Eli was becoming weaker, couldn’t walk, couldn’t eat, he wasn’t Eli anymore but Eddie and Tye both admittedly say they didn’t think to take him to the hospital or call 911. That would have been too much trouble and they couldn’t have that.

Finally, Eli collapses and Eddie and Tye realized they had no choice so they drove him to Integris Southwest Medical Center around 5:40PM. We know what happened next.

Eli’s younger sister Candra (Kandra depending on where you see it) Johnson was 2-years-old at the time. Eddie said on September 15, 2009 Candra was being a terror and not minding him. Eddie has a hard time getting toddlers to mind and controlling his temper. The officers found Candra and she was also covered in bruises, she was alive though, thank God.

Eddie admitted to having an “anger problem” and to causing the murder of Eli and abusing Candra. What a great guy for accepting responsibility. I can see why Tye loves him so much.

Previous to this incident Eddie beat Eli’s feet with a plastic baseball bat so bad that they were swollen and black because he had another potty-training accident. Tye took him to the hospital several days later and left Eddie for a very short period of time but went crawling back to him.

Tye was sentenced to life in prison by a Oklahoma county jury in May after being found guilty of first-degree murder, child neglect and enabling child abuse.

Eli’s maternal grandmother said Eddie had “mental control” over her and she should not be charged with Tye’s murder. “I do think that she needs to do time because she failed to protect him,” Kimberly Shepard explained.

Tye gave birth while in prison to a baby girl, she was placed for adoption and is with her new family.

Candra was placed in protective custody, allegedly with a family member and Tye’s parental rights have been terminated.

The OKDHS’s last statement was;

“The OKDHS overall finding was Confirm-Court Intervention Requested, with a determination of shocking and heinous, which included a recommendation by the OKDHS for termination of the biological mother’s parental rights to the younger sibling.”

Too little, to late.

Mugshot’s of both Johnson and Valdez (wish Johnson showed that much emotion while her own child was getting beaten to death.)

There were 7 other children removed from the home that same day, they belonged to Eddie and his brother Robert Valdez. Robert Valdez took a plea deal for neglect and was sentenced to 1 year in jail, he had to testify against Eddie and Tye.

Eddie Valdez pleaded guilty in March to first-degree murder and 2 counts of child abuse. He agreed to serve a life term without the possibility of parole.

The Lizzie Borden Legand

English: Lizzie Borden

English: Lizzie Borden (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

 

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
And when she saw what she had done,
She gave her father forty-one.

Photo of the Borden house on 92 Second Street in Fall River, Massachusetts

→ The Borden house that still stands on 92 Second Street may now be a bed and breakfast but on August 4, 1892 it was witness to one of the most brutal, unsolved murders in American history. We may never know what really happened that day.

The History
To start from the very beginning – Andrew Borden was one of the richest men in the city of Fall River, he was a self-made businessman with important titles such as President of Union Savings Bank, Durfee Safe Deposit and many others. He had two daughters with his first wife Sarah Morse. The eldest being Emma Borden who was born March 1st of 1851 and the youngest, Lizzie Borden born July 19th 1860. Lizzie would not grow to know her biological mother because in March of 1863 Sarah died of a hemorrhage. On January 18th 1865 Andrew was remarried to Abby Gray, a women that will be remembered due to her graphic departure from life.

It was close to 9am when Lizzie walked down the stairs of her home like many mornings since the family bought the home in 1872. She saw her Stepmother Abby dusting the dining room, Her father Andrew sitting in his large chair in the sitting room and Bridget – the maid who the Borden sister’s insisted on calling ‘Maggie’ which was the name of a pervious servant – was grabbing her pail of water and long pole with a brush to go wash the windows.

Although Bridget had cooked breakfast earlier Lizzie had said she was not hungry and instead had a cup of coffee, Her father had mentioned he might not go to the post office and mail a letter to Emma his eldest daughter who was in Fair Haven for two weeks visiting friends. Earlier that morning about 7am Lizzie’s Uncle John Morse who was the brother of Andrew’s first wife Sarah had left to go visit his nice and nephew. He made several visit’s a year from his home in Dartmouth to visit family and conduct business in Fall River.

Around 9:15 Andrew Borden left and went downtown while Abby went upstairs to make the bed that John was staying in. At 9:30 Abby come downstairs only for a moment till she decided she needed fresh pillowcases and went back up. Bridget continued to wash the outside windows and stop for a few minutes to talk with the hired girl next door, around 10:30 she had gone inside to begin cleaning the inside windows. It’s said during this time Lizzie sat in the kitchen reading an old Harper’s magazine and eating a pear while she waited for the iron to heat up to press some handkerchiefs. Fifteen minutes later Andrew returned home, and was told by his daughter Lizzie, “Mrs. Borden has gone out – she had a note from someone who was sick. The Borden daughters would only address Abby as ‘Mrs. Borden’. He then went to lay down and take a nap in the sitting room, he was completely unaware that his wife was laying dead in the guestroom in a pool of her blood; he also didn’t know he was never to wake from his nap.

Bridget had gone up to her room in the attic to take a nap while Lizzie went to the barn looking for a lead sinker because she planned on going fishing the following Monday, she claimed she had been in the barn for twenty minutes while she ate some more pears she had picked off the pear tree. Afterwards she entered the house and went to the dining room to lay her hat down.

“Maggie, Come down!” Lizzie shouted from the stairs, abruptly waking Bridget from her restless sleep. “What is the matter?” Bridget shouted back as she slipped her shoes on and rushed down the staircase. “Come down quick!” Lizzie screamed out, “Father’s dead! Somebody’s come in and killed him!”

Crime scene photo of Andrew Jackson Borden, Lizzie claimed to have walked into the “sitting room” where she found her father’s murdered body.

Bridget found Lizzie by the back door, her face colorless. Bridget was stopped from entering the sitting room by Lizzie who ordered “Don’t go in there. Go and get the doctor. Run!” Dr. Bowen was a family friend and had only lived across the street, making Bridget’s run fast. Dr. Bowen wasn’t in but Mrs. Bowen was so Bridget told her that Andrew Borden had been killed; She ran back to the Borden house. “Where where you when this thing happened?”

She asked Lizzie “I was out in the yard, and I heard a groan and came in. The screen door was wide open.” Lizzie responded, she then sent Bridget to get the Borden Daughter’s friend, Miss Alice Russell who lived a few blocks away. The neighbors were starting to gather on Lizzie’s lawn, someone had called the police.

Her next door neighbor, Mrs. Adelaide Churchill came over to Lizzie who was still at the back entrance of the house and asked what was wrong, Lizzie responded,
“Oh Mrs. Churchill, someone has killed my father!”
“Where is your father?” she asked,
“In the sitting room.”
“Where were you when it happened?”
“I went to the barn to get a piece of iron.”
“Where is your mother?”

Lizzie said she didn’t know and that her stepmother had received a note asking her to respond to someone who was sick. Soon Dr. Bowen arrived and examined Andrew’s body, Dr. Bowen could not identify the body at first, seven large blows had gashed his face, his nose had been severed and one eye had been cut in half. Most of the blows had been within the area of the eyes, nose and ears. Blood still seeped from the wounds when he had a sheet cover Mr. Borden, but Abby was still unaccounted for. Lizzie had claimed she was sure Abby had come home and Bridget and Mrs. Churchill went upstairs to find Abby dead on the floor of the guestroom.

Above and below are both crime scene photos of Abby Borden at different angles. Lizzie claimed to have not known about her mothers murder until Bridget and Mrs. Churchill went up and discovered her.

 Mrs. Churchill would later say that she only “Looked like the form of a person.”, she like her husband had been beaten to death by an axe. Dr. Bowen noticed that Abby had been struck over a dozen times from the back of her head, in her autopsy it was revealed that there was nineteen blows to the head.

The axe used to murder Mr & Mrs Borden is now believed to be part of the Lizzie Borden museum located in Fall River, MA

Pictured above: Crime scene (close-up) of Andrew Borden’s butchered body.

The next hour or so at the Borden home was chaotic, people were all over the house sneaking looks at the gruesome state of the bodies and comforting Lizzie. All the people had destroyed any clues that could have been left behind; The reason being the annual picnic of the Fall River Department was hosted that day and only one officer had gone to the Borden house, George W. Allen, and after only being there a few moments he had ran the 400 yards back to the department to tell the city marshal the gruesome details.

On August 12th 1892 Lizzie was arrested for the murders of her father Andrew and stepmother Abby. The trial lasted from June 5th of ‘93 to June 19th. Although people had testified that only days earlier Lizzie tried to buy poison from a Smith‘s drug store, Miss Alice Russell said she had seen Lizzie burn a dress in the kitchen stove, and the fact that Lizzie’s story was barely believable because the barn she claimed to be in was dusty and untouched, the ‘letter’ Abby had supposedly received was never found and that her motive was clear because her father was going to rewrite his will leaving almost everything to Abby instead of his daughters, she was found not guilty on all counts by a jury of twelve middle-aged farmers and salesmen.

Five weeks after the trial had ended Lizzie (Who at this point went by ‘Lizbeth’ instead) and her sister Emma bought a thirteen bedroom Victorian house at 306 French St. on ‘The Hill’ which was the most fashionable area of the city. Lizzie had the name of her new home carved into the top step leading to the front door, this house was dubbed ‘Maplecroft’. In 1904 Lizzie befriended a young actress, Nance O’Neil who was rumored to be having an affair with Lizzie, She would often throw parties for her new friend at Maplecroft. In 1905 Emma and Lizzie got into a fight of an unknown subject and Emma moved away, the two never spoke again.

On June 1st 1927 Lizzie died after a long illness from complications of gall bladder surgery. Strangely enough Emma died only a few days later on June 10th after falling down the stairs at her home. They were buried in plots next to Andrew and Abby.

Many theories still float around as to what went down that day, but who ever had killed Andrew and Abby has brought their secret to the grave with them, all that is left is spirits who will never rest until this mystery is solved.

Encounters
You looking for a place to rest your head and go home with creepy stories? Thrill seekers, Ghost hunters and people who want to be spooked alike can now stay in the Borden house that is now a bed and breakfast designed to make you feel like your back in 1892.

Bizarre Love Triangle With A Surprising Ending

Brian Barrett

Pictured: Brian Barrett a.k.a “beefcake”

On Friday, September 15, 2006, just outside Buffalo, N.Y., Brian Barrett’s shift at the Dynabrade power tool plant ended at 10 p.m. He climbed into his truck to head home, but before he could slip his key into the ignition, someone shot him at close range with a .30-caliber rifle. Three bullets passed through his driver’s side window, hitting him in the arm and neck.

He died almost instantly, but it would be two days before a coworker would notice his body still in the truck in the parking lot on Monday morning.

Erie County Sheriff’s deputies dispatched to the scene at 8989 Sheridan Drive in the Buffalo suburb of Clarence talked to locals. They reported hearing gunshots and seeing a man wearing camouflage and a ski mask. Near Barrett’s truck officers found a peach pit and a leather cartridge case covered with what was later determined to be dog hair.

Once the investigators talked to a few coworkers at the factory where Barrett had been working part-time for the last four years, the outline of a likely scenario quickly came into focus. The 22-year-old seemed to have become the victim of a bizarre love triangle: He was likely killed by a man pretending to be someone he was not, obsessed with a woman pretending to be someone she was not.

And almost all of it, until the bloody final act, had happened online.

Daniel Barrett still does not understand how his son ended up a victim. The death of young Brian Barrett certainly shocked his family and friends.

Barrett had been a good kid and a star athlete. He had been on the football team too, but baseball was his game. The former third baseman still holds his high school’s record for the longest home run. His old coach, Starpoint High School Athletic Director Tom Sarkovics, says he never heard anyone say a negative word about the guy.

After high school, Barrett played ball in the Midget League and was voted Most Valuable Player. But by then it was just a game for him: He went to work at a machine shop as soon as he graduated in June 2002. He saved up enough money to buy his Ford Ranger, but then in December he was laid off.

That disappointment prompted him to reconsider college. He enrolled at Erie Community College, and found a job at Dynabrade at the same time. Once he got his two-year associate degree, he transferred to Buffalo State College, where he was studying to become an industrial arts teacher at the time of his murder.

Erie Community College

His life was just starting. Barrett still lived with his parents, Dan and Deb Barrett, on Minnick Road in nearby Lockport, in the childhood room decorated with his sports trophies, posters and photos of him with his younger brothers, Daniel and Richard.

His grandfather, Harry Barrett called him Lurch. Barrett was tall and strong, but shy, just finding his footing in the world. He’d started camping and traveling, seeing a little of the world outside the Buffalo area. Earlier in 2006, he’d gone to North Carolina on a camping trip. While there, he tried sky diving for the first time, he told his parents about this only after the jump, afraid that they’d worry about him if they knew.

But it turned out that the mortal danger would come from one of Barrett’s coworkers, Thomas Montgomery.

“Tommy” Montgomery was an 18-year-old Marine about to be deployed to Iraq. He described himself online as 6’2, 180 pounds. He said he had a black belt in karate and that he already sported an array of battle scars.

He met a 17-year-old girl from West Virginia, Jessi, on the game site Pogo.com in the spring of 2005. He told her his mom had died of cancer when he was twelve. She sympathized, and he opened up. He had raped a cheerleader in high school, he said, but then had turned himself around and followed his dad, Tommy Sr., into the Marines.

Pictured: “Jessi” a.k.a “Tallhotblond”

Tommy and Jessi spent more and more time chatting online on Pogo, MySpace and Yahoo. They even scheduled 10-minute phone conversations each day, before and after Tommy’s military duties. When Tommy was in Iraq, his father passed messages and photos between the two, through his Marine contacts.

Tommy got jealous when he started suspecting that Jessi was sending her photos to other men online too. To make it up to him, she sent him one of her thongs and a silver chain. Tommy calmed down and forgave herbut Tommy Sr. stepped in and sternly warned her not to hurt his sensitive, inexperienced son.

 Still, he kept relaying their messages. When Tommy considered suicide in Iraq, Jessi kept him going. He said she was the best thing that ever happened to him. She sent him some custom-made dogtags. He tattooed her name on his arm.

And on Christmas Day, 2005, Tommy asked Jessi to marry him. She said yes. They’d never even met.

If they had, Jessi and Tommy would both have realized that nearly everything that they had told each other was a lie.

Man Strangles Fiancee’s Daughter, 24, After Fantasizing About Having Sex With Her DEAD Body Then Helped Her Son, 3, Get Ready For Halloween

11/02/12 MICHIGAN — A pastor accused of beating and strangling a neighbor to fulfill a sexual fantasy was engaged to the victim’s mother and had asked church members to pray for the young woman before police found her body, a friend said on Friday.

Ex-convict John D. White, from Michigan, told investigators that after killing 24-year-old Rebekah Gay in her trailer in rural Isabella County early on Wednesday, he hid her body in nearby woods then returned to the trailer to dress her three-year-old son in a Halloween costume, ready for the boy’s father to pick him up.

White told investigators he repeatedly struck Gay’s head with a mallet then strangled her with a zip tie, according to the Isabella County sheriff’s office.

He said he stripped her but does not remember if he carried out his fantasy of having sex with Gay’s dead body.

‘We are all absolutely floored,’ said Donna Houghton, 76, who had a role in hiring White to be pastor at the 14-member Christ Community Fellowship three years ago. 

She said she protested his innocence until she heard he had confessed.

‘Then he had no leg to stand on,’ she told The Associated Press.

White led investigators to Gay’s body in a wooded area a half-mile away from the trailer park and later Wednesday was charged with first-degree murder. He remained jailed without bond on Friday.

Gay and White lived in the same trailer park in Broomfield Township, 85 miles northwest of Lansing, and White was engaged to Gay’s mother who was a regular at his Sunday sermons, Houghton said. She said the pastor often watched Gay’s son while she was at work.

White ‘really liked this young man,’ Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski said.

Houghton said that before White was arrested he had called her to ask that she contact other church members and start a prayer chain for Gay, who was still missing at the time.

‘He was pretty shook up. He said the police were giving him a hard time,’ Houghton said.

She said the tiny congregation was aware of White’s criminal past when he joined the church.

He was released from prison in 2007 after serving nearly 12 years for manslaughter in the death of a 26-year-old woman in Kalamazoo County, according to the state Corrections Department.

 
Confession: Wearing a 'suicide prevention suit', White confessed to hiding Gay's naked body after beating her to death but says he cannot remember whether he acted out his fantasy of having sex with her body

White also was sentenced to probation for choking and stabbing a 17-year-old Battle Creek girl in 1981.

‘He was absolutely contrite,’ Houghton said. ‘All kinds of people turn around and meet the Lord and they are a different person. 

‘He was doing a lot of good in the community… He was doing a lot of good and Satan did not want him doing good, and Satan got to him.’

NYC: Fury over Facebook campaign to prove innocence of New York nanny who ‘murdered two children in bath-tub’

Update – 11/09/12 – NYC — Fury over Facebook campaign to prove innocence of New York nanny who ‘murdered two children in bath-tub’

  • Facebook page set up in support of Yoselyn Ortega has caused a massive backlash on the social networking site
  • ‘Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega’ believes that the nanny was not responsible for the killings of six-year-old Lucia and two-year-old Leo
  • Mother Marina Krim, found her children dead the bathtub in Upper West Side apartment on October 25th

A Facebook campaign which claims alleged killer nanny Yoselyn Ortega was not responsible for the deaths of two children in her care has provoked outrage.

The page ‘Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega’ – set up by an anonymous group – is pleading for any information ‘that could help bring the real killer or killers to be arrested.’

And since the page was launched on October 29th – four days after the brutal stabbings of Lucia Krim and brother Leo in their Manhattan home – it has sparked fury from people who believe that Ortega, 50,  should ‘rot in hell’, be ‘put to death’ to those who think it is plain ‘disgusting’.

‘We believe she did not do this crime and she deserves to have her day in court to defend against the charges to prove her case in a not guilty verdict,’ said the administrators to Radaronline.com – who are now facing calls for them to shut down the page.

While the family nanny has admitted to harming the two children in her care on the Upper West Side, police sources have told the New York Daily News that she has not confessed to the double murder.

And users of the social networking site have responded with fury to some of the more outrageous allegations made on the page that are aimed at providing evidence for Ortega’s innocence.

‘This is absolutely disgusting,’ wrote one Facebook user.

‘I hope you burn in hell along with Yoselyn you piece of cr*p. You need a psych evaluation because it’s obvious you’re attention seeking.’

Claiming to represent the family of Yoselyn Ortega, the page has only received 16 ‘likes’ since its launch almost two weeks ago and asks readers to pray for her freedom.

Update – 11/02/12 – NEW YORK CITY — ‘I’m paid to watch the children, not to clean’: Manhattan killer nanny tells police she was angry at family because they asked her to do housework:

The nanny accused of stabbing two young children to death at their home before slitting her own throat told police when she woke up from her coma that she was angry because the family wanted her to clean as well as look after the children.

Dominican Republic native Yoselyn Ortega was questioned by police after allegedly butchered six-year-old Lucia and two-year-old Leo while they were under her care at an Upper West Side, Manhattan, apartment last week.

Law enforcement officials told the New York Post that Mr and Mrs Krim asked their financially-strapped nanny to do simple housework as a way to earn money, thinking they were doing her a good turn. All this did was enrage her.

‘She said something like, “I’m paid to watch the children, not clean up and do housework”,’ a law-enforcement source said of Yoselyn Ortega’s statements to police after she woke up from a medically-induced coma on Sunday.

‘There was friction between her and the family.’

In Ortega’s brief statement to police, she said her employers had arranged to give her an extra five hours a week in housekeeping work to help her make more money, law-enforcement sources told the Post.

‘They were asking her to clean and do housework and she was unhappy because it interfered with her doctor’s appointments.’

It was also revealed today that Marina and Kevin Krim were worried about Ortega’s job performance in the weeks leading up to the October 25 slaying and had told her that if she didn’t improve her job performance they might need to replace her.

A law-enforcement source told the Post: ‘She was told that if she didn’t improve her work, she would be let go.’

Last week, the mother of CNBC executive Kevin Krim said that the young family treated Ortega, as they would one of their own, ‘bending over backwards’ to help her and even buying plane tickets so she could fly to the Dominican Republic with them.

Oretega allegedly repaid this kindness by murdering her children before trying to kill herself. Marina Krim discovered her son and daughter, Leo and Lulu, in a pool of blood in a bathtub, each with multiple stab wounds.

She was due to meet Ortega and her other two children at the local swimming pool with her now only surviving child Nessie, three. But when they failed to show up, she returned to her three-bedroom, $10,000-a-month pre-war apartment at West 75th Street and found it dark, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

When she went into the bedroom, she discovered her children in a pool of blood and a bleeding Ortega.

The nanny, who had slit her wrists, then plunged a kitchen knife into her own neck as the horrified mother walked into the grisly scene, police said. She stabbed herself with such force that she fractured a vertebra in her neck, police said.

Though she looked after the children for two years and was treated like part of the family, the 50-year-old did not ask about them when she woke from her coma, asking instead about her own family before falling back under sedation. Police plan on questioning her again. Charges have yet to be filed.

Ortega’s sister Miladys said she spoke to her sister in the days leading up to the massacre and she gave her no indication anything was wrong.

But the nanny’s neighbors said she appeared in troubled in the weeks leading up to the murders and she had been struggling with money issues – which is why the Krims offered her more work.

Ortega remains at nearby New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Toxicology tests performed on Ortega came back negative.

Neighbor Rima Starr, 63, recalls the moment she heard Mrs Krim make the grisly discovery.: ‘I heard blood curdling screams and I went down to the lobby and there was the mother screaming, hunched over the three year old.

‘At time she was screaming things like: “I’ll never speak to her again”, repeating that over and over again, then “it’s all right, you’ll be all right, you’ll be alright” to the child.

‘Then she would get waves of the reality of what just happened and then she’d go into just plain bloodcurdling screams with her arms flailing out to the sides.’

One neighbor revealed the superintendent of the apartment block went into the apartment and questioned Ortega, demanding: ‘So you cut her throat? So you stabbed her in the neck?’

His wife then came out to assist and told horrified neighbours who had heard the screams: ‘Two babies, in the bath, nanny’ and made a cutting sign across her throat.

Mrs Friedman added: ‘At that point I knew the nanny had something to do with it’.

Neighbours dialed 911 and, although Lulu and Leo reportedly appeared to be breathing when medics arrived, they were pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.

Ortega was unresponsive but was taken to New York-Cornell Hospital in a critical but stable condition. She was in a stable condition on Friday morning and police sources say she may have also taken pills.

Mrs Krim and Nessie, who had not witnessed the grisly scene, were also taken to hospital for treatment, and Mrs Krim was sedated.

A neighbour told the Wall Street Journal the woman had left the building ‘inconsolable, hysterical, frantic’.

Her husband, Kevin Krim, had been on a business trip and was met by police at the airport when he returned to New York. Officers recounted the horror to him and he was escorted to the hospital.

Mr and Mrs Krim remained at St. Luke’s hospital last night with Mrs Krim’s sister. Police said the shocked mother was unable to communicate.

On Friday, neighbour Charlotte Friedman said she believes she was the last one to see the children alive and that the nanny had looked ‘cold’ just half an hour before the murders.

She said that she was in the elevator with Ortega, who had a ‘poker face’ and appeared unemotional despite Lulu and Leo playing around.

‘I was playing with the children in the elevator,’ Friedman said. ‘The girl looked so delightful. I asked her if she was going on a play date or something and she said she was going home.

‘I said, “What did you do,” and she said, “Dancing.” And that was it – they were only on the second floor so they left.

‘She was smiling, happy, happy happy. The nanny just smiled – and nothing. The nanny was a colder type from most nannies that I have encountered.

‘She was poker faced. She wasn’t the warmest person. I never saw her as the warmest nanny.’

Ortega’s niece, Katherine Garcia, added that her aunt had been ‘acting kind of nervous lately’ but insisted that she had loved the children.

Friends said she had lost her apartment in the Bronx and was forced to move in her sister in Harlem. Police added that her family said she may have visited a psychologist recently.

Police said there were no immediate explanations for the murders and suicide attempt. Paul J. Browne, from the police department, told the New York Times he did not know a note had been left.

The family had moved to New York from San Francisco within the last few years, and Mr Krim was named general manager of CNBC’s digital media division in March.

He is a Harvard graduate and has recently worked at Bloomberg and Yahoo, according to his LinkedIn profile.

The children’s grandmother on their father’s side, Karen Krim, told said that the family hired Ortega a year ago, until which time Mrs Krim had been a stay-at-home mother.

When Leo was born, they searched for a nanny. They even spent nine days with her family in the Dominican Republic, as documented on Mrs Krim’s online journal.

‘They just bent over backwards being nice to this woman,’ Karen Kim told the New York Daily News. ‘They were always doing things that were just fabulous for her. I’m just astounded, and I have no idea why something like this would happen.’

She added: ‘We’re just having a really, really hard time here. It’s the worst nightmare any parent could ever have.’

Mrs Krim, who teaches weekly art lessons to children, kept an online journal entitled ‘Life with the Krim Kids’, which she had last updated just three hours before the murders.

She had written: ‘Leo speaks in the most adorable way possible.’

The online journal paints a tender picture of her life with her husband and their beloved children, and gives an insight into the horrendous loss that has befallen the family.

She documents trips to pick apples, visits to pumpkin patches and playdates. Photographs show the children playing happily together around the home and on their first days of school.

‘One of the best parts of my day is after I drop both girls off at school and have 3 precious hours with little Lito all to myself,’ she wrote. ‘Ok, I’m near getting cheesy I adore this boy so much!!!’

She added how he loved to play with toy cars and trucks, and would set up his own ‘kitchen’ in the living room where he would pretend to make bacon.

‘Lito, I must say, is a very clever little boy,’ she wrote. ‘He is super talkative and just has a million thoughts running through his brain and can express himself amazingly well for an almost-2 year old.  I’m thinking he could be a Mini-Kevin.’

The family lives in one of the city’s most idyllic neighborhoods, just a block from Central Park and a few more from the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

It is home to many affluent families, and seeing children accompanied by nannies is an everyday part of life there, making the idea of such violence even more disturbing to residents.

Mrs Friedman added that the Krims are a quiet, nice friendly’ family.

She said: ‘They were sweet people. They had two large dogs they used to walk, they were greyhounds I think. The children were full of life.’

All morning a steady stream of passers by stopped off at the apartment block to lay flowers, some of whom were in tears.

Among the tributes was a card on some flowers which read: ‘Dear Krim Family. We weep with you at your horrible loss. There are no words that can express our sadness. We pray for you and your beautiful children.

‘Every mother and father weeps with you and your family during this dark time’.

Police officers could be seen taking bags of evidence out of the building and at one point removed what appeared to be a long piece of wood which was about 12ft long.

‘LIFE WITH THE KRIM KIDS’: DOCUMENTING A HAPPY FAMILY

Marina Krim’s online journal, Life with the Krim Kids, paints a tender picture of life with her husband and their children – and gives an insight into the horrendous loss that has befallen the family.

Consisting of mostly photographs, the blog documents trips to pick apples, visits to pumpkin patches and playdates. Images show the children playing happily together around the home, on their first days of school and at ballet recitals

‘One of the best parts of my day is after I drop both girls off at school and have 3 precious hours with little Lito all to myself,’ she wrote. ‘Ok, I’m near getting cheesy I adore this boy so much!!!’

‘Lito, I must say, is a very clever little boy. He is super talkative and just has a million thoughts running through his brain and can express himself amazingly well for an almost-2 year old.  I’m thinking he could be a Mini-Kevin.’

Hours before his death, she wrote: ‘Leo speaks in the most adorable way possible.’

Of her eldest daughter Lulu, who was also killed on Thursday, she joked: ‘Lulu is in love. His name is Joakim, he’s 1/2 British, 1/2 Swedish.  He lives in our apartment building and speaks with a British accent, is a total hipster and we love his parents. She gets totally giddy around him. Not sure Lulu knows this but Joakim has 2 other girlfriends as well…’

She later added: ‘Lulu has another boyfriend — When I picked her up from school yesterday, she told me that Martin (pronounced ‘Mar-teen’, he’s half-french, half-peruvian) is her boyfriend and her valentine.  Apparently, she kissed him twice.’

Last year, she wrote: ‘When I ask Lulu what she wants to be when she grows up, she always says she wants to be a Mama. And she is going to be a really good one.’

In February, she added photos from the family’s trip to the Dominican Republic, where they saw the family of their nanny.

‘It was wonderful,’ she wrote. ‘And we met Josie’s amazing family! The Dominican Republic is a wonderful country!!’

South Dakota’s First Execution In FIVE YEARS Tonight! Last Meal? Moose Track Ice Cream

Published on 10/15/12 by Dailymail.co.uk — South Dakota’s first execution in five years – and only the second in more than half a century – is scheduled for Monday  night.

At 10 p.m. this evening, Eric Robert, 50, is  scheduled to die by lethal injection at the State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls.  Last April, he pleaded guilty to killing a prison guard Ronald Johnson during a  failed escape attempt.

For religious reasons, Roberts is spending  his final 40 hours fasting and as a result his last meal was on Saturday night  when he ate Moose Track ice cream – vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cups  and Moose Track Fudge.

Eric Robert is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on Monday evening

Eric Robert is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on Monday evening.

According to his lawyer, Mark Kadi, the fast  is religious in nature with 40 hours serving as a metaphor for the 40 day fast  of Christ in the Bible.

Opponents of the death penalty are expected  to begin a vigil outside the prison at eight p.m. Any last-minute appeal or stay  of execution is unlikely, as Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced last week that he  would not intervene.

Warden Doug Weber will accompany Robert into the execution chamber this evening, ask him for his last words and then give the signal to the execution team. The Minnehaha County coroner will be present to declare Robert dead.

None of Robert’s friends or family are  scheduled to attend, said Kadi.

‘He’s been very calm,’ Kadi told UPI.com.  ‘I’ve seen him angry and stressed out, and that’s not what he is right  now.’

Robert was serving an 80-year sentence for a  kidnapping conviction when he and Rodney Berget, 50, tried to escape from Sioux  Falls prison. The two men attacked prison guard Ronald Johnson with a pipe and  covered his mouth with plastic wrap.

Wearing Johnson’s uniform, Robert approached  the prison’s west gate pushing a cart loaded with Berget hidden in a  box.

As the men approached the gate, the  guards  became suspicious. There was a struggle, Robert beat one guard;  other guards  then quickly arrived and detained both inmates.

Johnson’s body was found on the floor in a  Pheasantland Industries building,  where inmates worked on upholstery, signs,  custom furniture and other  projects. Johnson was killed on his 63rd  birthday.

Months later, Robert told a judge that his  only regret was that he hadn’t  killed more guards. He then asked to be put to  death, saying he would  kill again.

Robert never appealed his sentence and even  tried to bypass a mandatory state review in hopes of expediting his  death.

Berget also pleaded guilty in the killing,  but has appealed his death sentence. A third inmate, Michael Nordman, 47, was  given a life sentence for providing materials used in the murder.

South Dakota’s last execution took place in  2007, and that had been the first in the state for 60 years. Only five inmates  are currently on death row, including Robert and Donald Moeller, 60, who is  expected to be executed later this month after he asked for appeals on his  behalf to be dropped.

‘You have few people on death row,  few  executions, and then you have this coincidence of cases coming all  at once,’  said Richard Dieter, executive director of the nonprofit Death Penalty  Information Center. ‘When people waive appeals, their cases  start to move more  quickly.’

Moeller is scheduled to be put to death the  week of Oct. 28 for the 1990  kidnapping, rape and murder of a nine-year-old  girl. Robert has been on  death row only for about a year, Moeller has been  there for more than  two decades.

A judge last week granted Moeller’s request  that appeals to stay his  execution be dropped. ‘I killed,’ Moeller said. ‘I  deserve to be  killed.’
