Woman Kills Lover’s Wife and Self on Interstate 20

It all began Wednesday afternoon when neighbors of Barnett said they spotted a black Dodge Durango outside of the teacher’s home. The neighbors became suspicious because Barnett had recently replaced the lock on her gate to her backyard after believing that someone had tampered with the latch.

Clayton County police said they believe that the girlfriend of Barnett’s husband was the kidnapper.

According to the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, deputies spotted the Durango around noon on Thursday at a truck stop on I-20 near the Waco exit, and a chase ensued.

The driver led officers heading west on Interstate 20 through Carroll and Haralson counties. When the chase crossed state lines, the Alabama State Patrol joined in.

The chase continued to mile marker 208 where the vehicle stopped suddenly while being pursued. According to Clayton County authorities, the suspect reached into the back of the car, retrieved a gun and shot Barnett before turning the gun on herself.

Man Chokes, Stabs Wife, Kills Her and Self with Chainsaw–Yes, a Chainsaw

A Montgomery County man killed his wife with a chainsaw before taking his own life inside their Lower Moreland home, the coroner said Wednesday.

Their bodies were found in the couple’s home on Country Lane Tuesday afternoon by their 14-year-old son.

County coroner Walter Hofman says 43-year-old Nicole Peppleman was murdered and 48-year-old Christopher Peppelman committed suicide.

Investigators say it appeared they both had been mutilated by a chainsaw.

The autopsy showed that Nicole died of a gaping wound to the abdomen.

She had also been choked and stabbed in the neck.

Dr. Hofman says Christopher Peppleman died of a self-inflicted gaping wound to the abdomen and right side.

It was the end of a contentious relationship that has stunned the community.

Nicole had been separated from her husband and had been living with the children at her parents’ house in Jenkintown.

It’s not clear why she met her estranged husband at their house Tuesday.

“My mom and dad have been shot”: Man Kills 7 in Small-Town Shooting Spree

Around 10:15 p.m. Thursday, a 15-year-old girl, wearing only a nightgown and no shoes in near-zero temperatures and with cuts on her legs from running through thickets and hardened snow, pounded on a neighbor’s door.

“She was crying so hard,” the neighbor, who declined to be identified out of concern for his safety, said. “I finally got out of her, ‘My mom and dad have been shot.'”

The girl called 911 from the neighbor’s home. Sigman said that as officers responded to that call, they received word of another shooting.

The victims at both addresses were related to each other, and to Aldridge. Authorities identified them as two couples, Garold Dee Aldridge, 52, and his wife, Julie Ann, 47; and Harold Wayne Aldridge, 50, and his wife, Janell Arlisa, 48. Both men were cousins of Joseph Aldridge, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Kinder.

At some point over the next few hours, Joseph Aldridge killed two more men and another woman at two different locations, Sigman said, and injured another woman. Names of those victims, and details about the woman’s injuries, were not released.

The case took another strange twist when authorities went to the home that Joseph Aldridge shared with his 74-year-old mother, Alice. She was found dead at the home, but apparently of natural causes, authorities said. An autopsy was planned to determine if her death was related to the shooting spree.

She had been under a doctor’s care and appeared to have been dead at least 24 hours, Texas County Coroner Tom Whittaker told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Whittaker speculated that the son “came home and found her deceased and then for whatever reason went on a rampage and started killing people.”

Sigman said many of the residents of Tyrone are Aldridges….

Around 5:30 a.m. Friday, in neighboring Shannon County, some 25 miles from Tyrone, Joseph Aldridge was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted wound inside a GMC pickup. Sigman said the truck was running and in the middle of a two-lane highway.

Around town, Aldridge was described as a recluse, and it was unclear what, if anything, he did for a living.

12-Year Old Survives Family Murder-Suicide, Calls 911

In the quiet of a pre-dawn Saturday on a dead-end street, a father came home and shot his family in their heads, leaving women in three generations dead and a wounded 12-year-old girl calling 911, police said.

“What I did, I cannot come back from,” Jonathon Walker told his brother by phone soon afterward, police said. And Walker did not come back – police said he killed himself in his car on a desolate street a few miles away, ending a burst of violence that stunned relatives who said the family hadn’t shown signs of trouble.

The 34-year-old security guard had killed his 7-year-old daughter, Kayla Walker; his 31-year-old girlfriend, Shantai Hale; and Hale’s mother, Viola Warren, 62. His and Hale’s older daughter, whom a relative identified as Christina Walker, was hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

The bloody scene unfolded suddenly and quickly – Walker showed up to the home at 5:38 a.m., and his 12-year-old daughter called 911 a few minutes afterward to report that her father had shot the family, Boyce said. When officers arrived three minutes later, Walker was gone.

They searched for his SUV and found it within hours, with Walker’s body and a .45-caliber gun inside, Boyce said.

The victims were found on the home’s floor, he said.

UPDATE: 6 Dead, 3 Wounded, Gunman AT LARGE in Pennsburg Area Found Dead

Bradley William Stone, a former Marine reservist, had been on the run since Monday’s slayings shook small communities north of Philadelphia.

His body was found in a wooded area about 1/2 mile from his home in Pennsburg, said Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman. It was not immediately clear how long the remains had been there.

Although a final report from the coroner is pending, Stone appears to have died from self-inflicted cutting wounds, in the center of his body, according to Ferman.

Early Monday morning, a hangup call to 911 first tipped off police to the bloodshed, directing them to Lansdale, 28 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

When police arrived, they found two slain women: Stone’s former mother-in-law and former grandmother-in-law, Ferman said.

A short time later, a neighbor of Stone’s ex-wife called 911, the prosecutor explained. Police went to an apartment in Lower Salford and found 33-year-old Nicole Stone dead.

“I heard three or four gunshots and I heard the kids yelling, saying, ‘Mommy, no. No, mommy, no.’ And he just said, ‘Let’s go. We gotta go,'” a neighbor who did not want to be identified told CNN affiliate WFMZ. “I heard him say, ‘Let’s go. We gotta get in the car.'”

“They didn’t have any coats on or anything,” the neighbor said. “They just had their pajamas on, and he just said, ‘We gotta go.’ He was like, ‘She’s hurt. She’s hurt pretty bad. We have to leave.’ And just got in the car and sped off.”

But Stone didn’t harm his two daughters, who were living with his former wife. At about 5:30 a.m., he brought them to a neighbor’s residence in Pennsburg, according to Ferman.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office said police are looking for 35-year-old Bradley William Stone, of Pennsburg, in the killings. Three others were seriously wounded, officials said.

All of the victims have a “familial relationship” to Stone, prosecutors said. The victims were not identified further.

The hunt for Stone has moved to Pennsburg after a siege in Souderton ended without taking a suspect into custody.

Montgomery County court records also show Stone had been entangled in protracted divorce proceedings with his wife, Nicole A. Stone, since early 2009. The divorce was finalized in December 2012. Less than two weeks ago, he filed an emergency motion for custody.

UPDATE: Man Shoots Woman, Kills Self at Chicago Nordstrom’s

Now it’s murder-suicide.

Nordstrom shooting victim dies day after her birthday. Chicago Tribune, 11/30/2014.

[Nadia] Ezaldein’s family said she and her relatives had been tormented by the gunman, the victim’s ex-boyfriend, who sought her out Friday night before shooting her in the head and neck area about 8:30 p.m.

Ezaldein [22] began dating [Marcus] Dee [31] in August 2012 after meeting him through her older sister’s roommate, they said. Dee physically abused and beat the woman throughout the relationship, and in December 2013, threatened her by inserting a handgun into her mouth, the victim’s family said. The incident resulted in a hospital visit and the victim ending the relationship.

In the year since, Dee had harassed both the woman and her family members by making threatening calls to her father and siblings, family members said. The victim changed her number three times as a result, they said.

Ezaldein also tried to request an order of protection but backed out of the request when Dee threatened to kill himself if she went through with it, family members said. Relatives said the woman was also hesitant to report abuse or harassment because Dee’s parents were police officers.

“She thought his parents could cover it up,” a sister said.

Law enforcement sources said Dee’s parents are both Chicago police officers.

Earlier post:

The 31-year-old man was targeting his “girlfriend or ex-girlfriend,” who was a seasonal employee at the department store, said John Escalante, chief of detectives for the Chicago Police Department.

“She was working up on the second floor when he approached her, fired one shot, which struck her,” Escalante said on the scene. “He then turned the gun to himself and shot and killed himself.”

According to a police report, the shooter, identified as Marcus Dee, approached the woman at the store and they spoke with each other. He took out a gun, and as the woman walked away from him, he shot her in the head/neck area before shooting himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 10:23 p.m., the report said.

UPDATES: Man Beheads Woman, Throws Self in Front of Train: Murder-Suicide

UPDATES:

Patricia Ward of Farmingdale was a 28-year veteran faculty member who taught language arts, said Patrick Calabria, vice president of institutional advancement at the college.

“We are in shock,” he told The Post. “The staff in her department is teary-eyed. We are providing counseling to the staff who need it. It’s a very sad day. A lot of people are taking it very hard.”

Ward was beheaded by her son, a source said. He dragged her body out of the Farmingdale apartment and into the street where he kicked her severed head about 20 feet, Nassau County cops and witnesses said.

He then jumped in front of an LIRR train, his body was found about a mile from the murder scene, cops said.

Some of the horrified neighbors initially thought the headless body was a Halloween prank, only finding out it was real when they tried to lift the lifeless body, witnesses said.

The body of the female victim, wearing only a bra and pants, was lying on one side of the street and her head was on the other, said witness Jack Imperial, 41, of Briarwood, Queens, who was taking a taxi to a meeting when he came across the grisly scene.

“The body’s feet were at the curb, the shoulders were at the middle of the street. The head was across the street,” said Imperial. “I’ve seen some gruesome stuff in my years of living … but nothing like this. I didn’t expect to see something like this, especially not out here.”

Just 20 minutes after finding the corpse, MTA police confirmed a man in his 30s, identified by law enforcement sources as possibly the woman’s son, stepped in front of a Ronkonkoma-bound Long Island Rail Road train near the Clinton St. crossing.

The woman’s head may have been kicked across the street after the murder, a police source said.

It was not immediately clear if the killing occurred outside or in the apartment building. The identities of the dead man and woman were not immediately released.

Nick Gordon, who said he lived across the hall from the woman, said she moved in a few months ago and had a small white dog.

He speculated that the murder occurred inside the building. “When I came out the door, I saw the blood on the tile. It was all over, as if someone could’ve been pulling a body. You could see the smears going down the stairs.”
