And my entire extended family wonders why I wont come back to that area after getting the hell out the moment I graduated high school.

/Chose to be homeless in the winter of 2001/2002 when I got evicted after my business folded in the economic crash after 9/11 rather than to go back to the Johnstown suburbs and live with them.

You guys need to chill out with the jokes. An innocent person died, and you all are making fun.  That's really cold. Try being ice to people for once.

/but seriously, fark that guy with a crushed glass dildo.

I know Fark is for snark, but this story really got to me. What a senseless farking thing to kill a person over. And he just let her body lie there. She was reported missing on Monday, they found her body in his apartment on Tuesday.

That poor woman, her poor boyfriend, her poor family. What a horrible thing.

That's why the local PD has a space for meeting the potential psychos you're buying stuff from online.

I'm currently building an online marketplace and this has inspired a new tagline for me.

"Flog NZ: You probably won't get stabbed to death during a trade, unlike those OTHER marketplaces"

I've sold things on Marketplace and refuse to give my address and phone number.  If you want the item, we meet in a mall 5 minutes away.  If you need to contact me message me on the app.

Jesus.  How much cash could she have been carrying to buy a used fridge?  A couple hundred bucks?  So he killed her for a week's rent.

Given the location, I'd be shocked if it wasn't drugs.  Lots and lots of drugs.

Does this kind of thing happen to men and I'm just not remembering those stories? If it doesn't, is that just because we're generally bigger and stronger? (But then you'd expect to see short, wimpy men getting murdered a lot more.) It seems like there's something sexual and misogynistic behind this, or am I reading into it?

Williams was found Tuesday with multiple stab wounds in Gorgone's apartment located at 206 Old Scalp Ave.

following an argument over the cost of the refrigerator, according to charging documents.


My experience dealing with men during used goods sales is establishment of the price early on, and to not view for lower cost goods, to minimise hassle and time wastage. Viewing first is usually only reserved for highly specialised equipment, or big ticket items like cars and property.

It's the standard trope of, "In and out" when shopping. Undoubtedly a lot of women will do this as well, but they don't get stabbed so you don't hear about them.

Not sure on the size of the refrigerator (or of there was one to begin with). But any selling or buying I do, is in public.

That's sad.

Also, that's a stupid picture but a really good 54.

Leonard Lake and Charles Ng were serial killers here in California. They found victims via a 'for sale' ad. I hope the police investigate this as possibly more than a one time thing.

It is a sick world when a woman can't even buy something on line. I would never go to some strangers home to buy something alone. It is actually nothing new. It's just that we here everything from close and far.

Even if they don't have a space set aside, if police have video surveillance in their public parking lot, that can be a good place to suggest a transaction, letting the other person know you'll both be on camera. But this fridge killer may have been so mentally incapacitated that nothing would have deterred him.

I just never buy things or sell things via Facebook or Craigslist. Life is longer that way.

Yes, men are robbed and murdered at a higher rate than women.
No, you aren't not remembering them, they're just generally unreported except locally since it's uninteresting.

It's an "all kidnapping victims are attractive young women" thing.

The murderer is at the age where Schizophrenia starts becoming pronounced. This is not the actions of a sane man. Also look at his mugshoot. He's nuts.

With all my listening to murder podcasts, one thing that sticks out is that stabbing people to death is even more psychotic than just a plain ol gunshot. its one of those personal things that gets the killer closer to his/her victim.

It may have seemed like a cunning plan in his head but I don't think there is much going on in there to start.
