Phil Spector Apparently Quite Weird On Murder Night May 14, 2007

Posted by iniquity in Legal News, True Crime.

So far all the Phil Spector murder trial has really taught us is that Phil Spector likes to wave guns in people’s faces, Phil Spector’s lawyer has been a bit ill and Phil Spector is the finest connoisseur of practical lesbian-styled wigs in the land.But one question had been left unanswered – what was Phil Spector like on the night that B-movie actress Lana Clarkson died from a gunshot to the mouth? That question was neatly answered in part yesterday by Rommie Davis, a friend of Phil Spector who was out with the music producer on the evening that Lana Clarkson died. According to Rommie Davis, Phil Spector was combing alcohol and medication that night or, as she termed it, “a lethal combination.” Reports that the utterance of word “lethal” was accompanied in court by a lightning strike and a burst of sinister-sounding organ music are still unconfirmed.

Steven BranchWEST MEMPHIS, AR–This week marks the 14th anniversary of the West Memphis Three. It’s a case that captured the attention of millions when three young boys from West Memphis were found brutally murdered.

Three men now sit behind bars, one on death row for the crimes. Meanwhile the victims’ families are still looking for closure.

Stevie Branch was an honor roll student who won awards in math and science. He had an active imagination and loved to sing.

PLAINFIELD, Ill. (Crime Library) — The search for a missing mother of two is now in its second week. Friends and family members have plastered missing persons posters throughout town, and, as of Friday, they took have taken their search to the web in hopes that someone might recognize her photo.

Lisa Stebic, 37, was last seen at about 6 p.m. on April 30 at her home, 13244 Red Star Drive. The following day, one of Lisa’s neighbors reported her missing. When investigators went to her home, they discovered that her car was in the garage, but her cell phone and purse were missing.

Lisa and her husband, Craig, 41, have been married for 14 years, and have a 12-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son together. However, in recent months, the couple filed for divorce. Despite the turmoil in their relationship, they continued to live together. Police were recently called to the residence to settle a heated argument, the details of which are not yet known. The Tribune recently reported that Craig has a criminal record, which includes two felony counts from 1995, for unlawful use of a weapon.


Old-school gentleman or gun-toting sadist? Both, say Spector’s women. May 13, 2007

Inside the diminutive body of Phil Spector reside two men, according to witnesses at his murder trial.One is a sweet, courtly gentleman whose bygone-era approach to wooing women includes dates arranged by his secretary, long-stemmed roses and pleasant evenings that end with a kiss on the cheek.

The other is a nasty drunk with a filthy mouth and a habit of sticking guns in the faces of women who refuse to spend the night with him.
This portrait of a music industry Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde emerged over the past two weeks as a string of women who dated Spector in the 1980s and 1990s recounted the rise and fall of their relationships with him.

The witnesses described their reactions to his gun threats as equal parts terror and astonishment because, they said, the threat came from a man as well-known to them for his chivalrous kindness as he was for producing stars such as The Beatles and Tina Turner.

Pressing her index finger to her cheek to mimic a gun barrel, a former assistant to Phil Spector testified Monday the famous music producer and murder defendant threatened to shoot her in 1989.

“He put it all over me,” Dianne Ogden, on the verge of tears, said as she moved her finger from her right cheek to her nose to her forehead.

Spector, she said, ordered her to the bedroom of his home, then in Pasadena, because, Ogden said, “he wanted to rape me.”

Spector, the producer of records for the Beatles, Ike and Tina Turner and the Righteous Brothers, is charged with murdering actress Lana Clarkson, who was shot in the mouth at his Alhambra mansion Feb. 3, 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on $1 million bail.

Ogden, who said she had been a friend and part-time assistant to Spector, is the second woman to testify that the music producer threatened her with a gun when she tried to leave his home.

A man cut off his own head with a chainsaw after stabbing his 70-year-old father to death in their apartment in the German city of Cologne, police said.

The body of the offender, 24, was found headless when police raced to the apartment after an emergency call, apparently from the dying father, had been broken off in mid-sentence.


Home Invasion Gone Wrong for 2 Criminals May 2, 2007

Posted by iniquity in News, True Crime.

From LibertyPost.org–Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez 23 and Enrico Garza 26, probably believed they would easily overpower a home alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two story home.

It seems the two crooks never learned two things, they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father’s room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buck shot from the 11 year olds knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals. When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.

It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. The victim, 50 year old David Burien, was not so lucky as he died from stab wounds to the chest.
