World Gone Bad: Man Kills Love Triangle Rival, Eats Heart with Fork and Knife

The woman at the centre of the love triangle told police that her former lover had visited the house where she was living with her current partner and they had chatted together before he gave her money to buy liquor and she left.

When she returned she found her partner, 62-year-old Mbuyiselo Manona, had been stabbed, Van Wyk said.

Neighbours alerted by the commotion said they had peered through the house windows to see the man cutting out Manona’s heart and eating it.

“The whole situation was crazy. We were shouting at him to stop, but he did not listen,” one neighbour said.

“Even when the police got here… the guys were scared to go in. They had to call for back-up.

“You can’t really blame them — how do you go into a room with someone dripping another person’s blood out of his mouth?”

Western Cape deputy police commissioner Sharon Jephta said the motive for the murder was “definitely a love triangle”.

World Gone Bad: Policeman’s Son Stabs, Kills 5 at House Party

The charges against de Grood came following the early-morning stabbing deaths of four men and a woman in the city’s Brentwood neighbourhood, just north of the University of Calgary campus. De Grood is the son of a veteran Calgary police officer, according to the chief of police.

…The stabbings happened around 1:20 a.m. MT on Tuesday at a house party celebrating the end of university classes, police said.

“This is the worst mass murder in Calgary’s history,” said [Calgary Police Services Chief Rick] Hanson at a news conference Tuesday.

…“The suspect arrived at the party, obtained a large knife and targeted the victims one by one, stabbing them,” said Hanson.

There is nothing to indicate that there was any incident that led up to the event, or that de Grood had consumed drugs or alcohol. It’s believed he came to the party directly from work, said Hanson.

…According to neighbours, the people at the house had been celebrating the last day of university classes with a fire in the backyard.

Bermuda Shorts Day festivities to mark the end of the University of Calgary’s winter semester have been a campus tradition since 1960.

Three people were pronounced dead at the scene. A female was found injured on the lawn, while two others were taken to hospital in critical, life-threatening condition, and later died, officials said.

One other person suffered minor injuries.

84-Year Old Kills Son over Not Buying Cable, Tries to Stab Self to Death

The suspect had just gotten off the phone with his pastor when he shot his son, according to a criminal complaint.

Police said the pastor told them Pang Se Vang was upset that his son would not pay to install cable television in the home, the complaint said.

Chue Vang responded that his father had the option to move out. Chue Vang had bought the house with his sister, See Vang Yang, according to an affidavit filed in support of a search warrant.

Pang Se Vang locked himself in a bedroom and claimed to have knives with him, the search warrant affidavit said. Maplewood police officer Kao Xiong called the defendant on the phone and talked with him in Hmong, the suspect’s native language. Kao Xiong told him to come out with his hands up.

“The defendant replied that he could not because he had stabbed himself in the chest and was on the bed,” the complaint said. “He said that he stabbed himself because he wanted to die.”

He and the dead son had argued, he said, and he grabbed his hunting shotgun.

“He admitted that he loaded it, pointed it at his son and shot him,” the complaint said.

He didn’t want to settle the issue in court, he told the officer. “He would settle the dispute with his son when they reached the afterlife,” the complaint said.

After a two-hour standoff, Pang Se Vang complied with the officer’s request to hold his hands up near a window so that police could locate him in the house.

A Ramsey County SWAT team moved in and found Pang Se Vang on the bed, “covered in blood on his chest, stomach and neck.” A large knife lay about 6 inches away. He was taken by ambulance to Regions Hospital, where he was treated for the self-inflicted wounds to his neck and abdomen, and was formally arrested Tuesday.

Pang Se Vang’s wife…said Pang Se Vang had been talking on the phone in the bedroom that morning with their pastor. He then came to the kitchen to eat.

“(The victim) told his father that if he had any worries, he should talk to his sons about it,” the complaint said. Pang Se Vang replied, “I’m not talking with you kids,” according to his wife.

He went back to the bedroom, and Chue Vang followed him.

That’s when Pang Se Vang’s wife heard a gunshot and saw their son fall backwards into the hallway.

She asked him why he shot their son.

“He said, ‘If you are not afraid of dying, then come in and bother me. If you are afraid of dying then you better run away,’ ” the wife recalled.

Maplewood police Chief Paul Schnell said the family described Pang Se Vang as being “very militaristic, very patriarchal … (a) my-way-or-the-highway kind of orientation …”

A family member said he had been a member of the Laotian military.

It was not a self-defense case, Schnell said. “This is murder stemming from a dispute that really would not be of unusual significance in anybody’s life. … It’s tremendously hard to wrap your head around.”

“[M]entally prepared” 14-Year Old Shoots Father, Hacks Brother 30 Times with Machete

Detectives say the teen charged with killing his father and brother in Coeur d’Alene told them he had “mentally prepared himself” for the alleged double homicide for eight months.

Eldon Samuel III, 14, was charged as an adult Tuesday in Kootenai County court. He faces two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of his father, Eldon G. Samuel, Jr., 46, and his younger brother, Jonathan Samuel, 13. Bail was set at $1 million.

Police records show the boy called in the report himself at 9:09 p.m. Monday and told the police dispatcher that he had shot and killed his brother and father.

…The report states that Samuel said his father, who “often beats him,” had been taking medication on Monday evening while “talking about zombies.” Samuel’s father allegedly fired a shot outside the home before going back into the house. Samuel told investigators that the two then began fighting inside the house, and after his father pushed him twice, he fired at the man’s stomach with a .45 caliber handgun.

Samuel told the investigator that he shot his father three more times, twice in the cheek and once in the “brain.” Still, he said, his father wasn’t dead.

According to the report, the father then attempted to crawl to Jonathan’s room. The 13-year-old boy, who Samuel allegedly said “he hated,” was hiding under a bed and refused to come out when Samuel ordered him out of the room. Samuel told investigators he then used a shotgun to shoot his hiding brother four times.

Samuel said he then set the weapon aside, picked up a “large knife” and stabbed Jonathan “numerous times.” Samuel told the detective that Jonathan still appeared to be alive after the stabbing, which prompted him to use a machete to strike Jonathan approximately 30 times.

The report said that Samuel briefly spoke to the detective about the popular video game “Grand Theft Auto V,” stating that out of the three character choices the game gives players, he always chooses “Trevor” – a character who “has anger issues and often shoots other characters in the game.”

“Eldon thinks Trevor is ‘kinda cool,'” the report states.

…Sgt. Christie Wood said in a press release that the Samuel family had recently relocated to Coeur d’Alene from California. The home on First Street where they were staying is owned by St. Vincent de Paul of North Idaho and used as an emergency shelter.

Jeff Conroy, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul North Idaho, told The Press Tuesday that the family moved into the house approximately three months ago and were in the process of moving out.
