2001-11-14 11:12:53 AM  
I have a splitting headache! Literally!

"He then completed the killing by strangling her with a telephone cord,"

Now that is what is meant by finishing what you started.

Stupid things always always happen in San Deigo. Too much sun.

Sounds like a bad line from a Schwarzenegger movie.

Police crack case immediately when autopsy shows no pain killers in womans stomach

I'm proud to say that I sacrificed getting a boobies and took the time to read the article. Maybe I should have taken the opportunity to grab the boobies.

What's sad is she had a 13-year-old daughter.
2001-11-14 11:19:26 AM  
god damn, Peter Gabriel certainly never meant for something like THIS to happen!

2001-11-14 11:19:56 AM  
Rabb, that killed me. Metaphorically.
2001-11-14 11:20:11 AM  
Not only will he never get the girl, he'll be someone's girlfriend in prison!! hahahaha
2001-11-14 11:21:40 AM  
"Police contend defendant had homicide in mind"

So did the victim, apparently.

2001-11-14 11:21:46 AM  
This should have a 'sick' tag....
2001-11-14 11:22:15 AM  
Londongirl:thank you, thank you

2001-11-14 11:25:47 AM  
Doctor,my brain hurts !
2001-11-14 11:26:45 AM  
surely it was just a brainfreeze from all the ice cream she ate *before* the sledgehammer....
2001-11-14 11:26:50 AM  
"Police said it was a deadly combination: homicidal notions and a sledgehammer hidden under his clothes."

Hey Buttslammer, Here's your new cellmate Mr. Sledgehammer!

Hey Sledge, you'll get to do a lot of talking to buttslammer's gun
in here! HAHAHAHA!!!!
2001-11-14 11:28:31 AM  
He killed her because she disrespected him. How nice. But I guess it is amazing these people have a word as long as disrespected in their vocabulary at all.
2001-11-14 11:29:24 AM  
I love how the police just profess their immense detective work on this...

Polie Captain: Sarge, what the hell happened here?

Sarge: Well sir, we THINK it was the sledghammer and this guy may have had an issue with her, not sure yet.

Police Captain: keep up the good work!


2001-11-14 11:29:43 AM  
I wonder if he torched her car too. You know, to prove his love to her.
2001-11-14 11:44:47 AM  
Well, I mean...come ON!
She dissed him! She had it coming!
2001-11-14 11:47:40 AM  
Those demented killers! They've got the best sense of humor!
2001-11-14 11:56:00 AM  
He also ripped off her leg and told police he thinks she may be suffering from a charlie horse.
2001-11-14 11:59:48 AM  
Off topic, but what is the origin behind Americans calling what we Brits call "cramp" a "Charlie Horse"?
2001-11-14 12:01:35 PM  
Maybe it was just an accident. He was trying to kill a bee that landed on her head. Then knowing that she was allergic to bee stings, he applied a tourniquet to the neck to stop the flow of the stings poison. Perfectly Logical...

You all have turned into a bunch of alarmists.
2001-11-14 12:04:42 PM  
The article neglects to say that after the crime, he went off dancing in the Woods looking for a one armed shoe-salesman and asking everyone for the Black Lodge, all the while enjoying cherry pie and a cup of coffee.
2001-11-14 12:08:30 PM  
If Fb doesn't comment on this one, then the terrorists have already won.
2001-11-14 12:11:54 PM  
Yeah and after cutting out her heart and setting it on fire he called back and said she had a severe case of heartburn too.
2001-11-14 12:31:25 PM
2001-11-14 12:42:58 PM  
well, it;s all fun and games until...awww never mind

2001-11-14 12:47:24 PM  
This was a 29 year old guy and a 40 year old woman. I just wanted to point that out. Surprised no one else did by now. Yup...29 and 40....ok bye.
2001-11-14 01:02:29 PM  
I weep for the future.
2001-11-14 01:06:39 PM  
How do you conceal a sledgehammer under your clothes? Was he wearing those new jeans with a "pouch"?
2001-11-14 01:13:11 PM  
We say "Insane Diego".

Now you know why.
2001-11-14 01:24:18 PM  
He took his therapists advice to hammer out their issues literally.
2001-11-14 01:27:19 PM  
Yo, Bradway got dissed. That hizzo be all unresponsive and shiat to Bradway slidin' all up in that shiat. the bizatch got hers.
2001-11-14 01:38:58 PM  
<insensitive remark>

Damn, I've had headaches where I said it felt like I got hit with a sledgehammer but I guess I need to rethink that one.

</insensitive remark>
2001-11-14 01:39:44 PM  
I feel crappy after reading that.
2001-11-14 01:51:11 PM  
Dissed? Pager?? Hmmmmmmm. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
2001-11-14 01:57:48 PM  
that guy should have focused his attention on sledge-hammering this guy:

[image from too old to be available]
sorry, i just had to do it
2001-11-14 02:38:34 PM  
Flamebait & Oompaloompa I resent those remarks, I live in San Diego and its not that crazy here. There are tons of cops but its all good. You only start worrying when you dont hear police sirens.
2001-11-14 02:41:44 PM  
Actually I might have even seen that aftermath of that killing, I remember driving through that area and seeing tons of police cars parked on the street. But thats not very unsual here, the police routinely call for backup if someone cuts themself shaving.

From Gerard Joannes in France; a related question came from Edmund Matthews in the UK: "Have you ever heard of a charley horse? Where does this phrase come from?"

It's American, dating from the 1880s, and was originally baseball slang. It refers to a painful involuntary cramp in an arm or leg muscle, usually that of an athlete, as a result of a muscular strain or a blow. We're not sure where it comes from, but there are lots of theories. There's a persistent story that the original Charley was a lame horse of that name that pulled the roller at the White Sox ballpark in Chicago near the end of last century. The American Dialect Society's archives reproduces a story that was printed in the Washington Post in 1907, long enough after the event that people were trying to explain something already mysterious. This piece said it referred to the pitcher Charley Radbourne, nicknamed Old Hoss, who suffered this problem during a game in the 1880s; the condition was then named by putting together his first name and the second half of his nickname. The first recorded use, again from the ADS archives, is from the Sporting Life of 1886; that and other citations suggest it was coined not long before.

What's there to comment on an article like this one? That the murderer also had a sick sense of humor when he called the police reporting that the woman was suffering from a migraine headache?
2001-11-14 03:36:44 PM  
That is the funniest article I have ever read! LOL!!!
2001-11-14 03:46:50 PM  
Can't believe it hasn't been done yet (prolly shouldn't be)

"I have a headache this big, and it has sludgehammer written all over it."
2001-11-14 04:34:26 PM  
Hey 'Sparks' - I get it! "Dissed" + a pager = he was black (aka: one of 'them') Man, thank God we white folk have mental giants like you representing us. I suppose all that's left from the equation is a curb-feelers and a couple of fuzzy dice. Next time I'll just drop a dime to Huggy Bear and we'll take down some 40 ouncers while we chill which our homies...

Damn I hate dipshiat white rednecks. You set us all back about 20 years. If the asshole was white, would that have had ANY inpact (no pun) on the story/incident. I mean, it's a bad enough situation without you bringing race into it. White people do plenty of sick shiat too. Anyway, you and David Duke have a nice day burning crosses.

"After Kelin was dead, Bradway peeled off his bloody clothes and dressed himself in some of Kelin's clothes, then called the Fire Department."

Hahahahaha! For his sake, I hope he wasn't limited to a dress!

Heels are murder on my feet!
