“I hacked them to death with a machete”: Man Kills 19-Year Old over “witchcraft”

A 21-year-old Stillwater man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of an area college student who, according to police, was nearly decapitated.

Isaiah Zoar Marin, 21,  is accused of using a “long knife or sword” to kill 19-year-old Jacob Andrew Crockett at an apartment in the 400 block of S. Oakdale in Stillwater.

Police say the two men were “acquaintances” and Crockett was attending class at Northern Oklahoma College, but was planning to transfer to OSU.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers say they received a 911 call from Marin, saying he had just killed someone.

According to an arrest affidavit, Marin told police, “I murdered someone.”

According to the affidavit, he began “rambling about sacrificing and magic.”

Officers found him walking along State Highway 51 in western Stillwater, covered in blood and carrying a knife.

Court records show that after police approached Marin, he said, “I hacked them to death with a machete.”

Marin’s brother, Samuel Marin, told police he and Isaiah were playing a card game and the victim was in the room with them.

The report says Samuel stated Isaiah had been watching YouTube videos related to his Christian beliefs.

During the card game, the affidavit claims Isaiah picked up a large black sword and began swinging it.

Samuel stated he heard a noise “described as the sound of someone getting stabbed. He stated he looked up and saw Jacob stand up and blood gushing from his chest.”

Samuel told police that Isaiah was still holding the knife.

At that point, the witness says he ran from the apartment.

He says Isaiah followed him, trying to calm him down and “would explain why he killed Jacob from letters he would write while he was in prison.”

Samuel told police Crockett and Isaiah had disagreements in the past.

He said Jacob Crockett and his brother, Jesse, “were practicing witchcraft and Isaiah had strong Christian beliefs.”

Man Stabs Aunt, Kills Her 6-Month Old, Shot Dead by Police

A six-month old baby died and his mother was in critical condition after a family member stabbed them both on Thursday in a Sacramento suburb, police said.

The 20-year-old alleged assailant, the woman’s nephew, was shot by police and also died, Folsom police spokesman Andrew Bates said.

“The first officer to arrive contacted a male in his early 20′s who was covered in blood and advanced on the officer,” Bates said. “The suspect had just stabbed his aunt and her 6-month old son.”

The officer shot the man once, Bates said. The man, his aunt and the baby were all sent to hospitals, and the baby and the assailant were later pronounced dead, he said.

Their identities were not released on Thursday.

Bates said that investigator were looking into whether the assailant intended to commit “suicide by cop,” Bates said, based on information from witnesses.

World Gone Bad: Woman Stabs Teacher to Death in Front of Children

“This morning, a mother showed up with a knife and stabbed a 34-year-old teacher in front of her students, for reasons that will be determined by the investigation,” Albi [France] prosecutor Claude Derens told AFP.

“When I arrived at the scene they were trying to revive her. She was in cardiac arrest in her classroom,” he said.

The stabbing took place as morning classes began at Albi’s Edouard Herriot primary school, which is attended by 284 students aged from three to 11.

No further details were immediately available…

A spokesman for [Education Minister Benoit] Hamon said he was on his way to the school to show his support, saying the education minister “is deeply shocked by this crime, which plunges the end of the school year into mourning.”

“This tragedy confirms there is a need to fight against violence in and around schools, to protect schools, teachers and students.”

The incident comes amid concerns in France over assaults by parents on teachers, with a study released in April saying nearly half of primary school principals had been verbally or physically abused by parents.

Bullied 14-Year Old Stabs Ex-Friend to Death in Front of Middle School

The 14-year-old suspect struck back after incessant mental and physical torment from his middle-school peers, including Crump, led to a botched May suicide try with a belt, neighbors said.

His parents’ desperate attempts to win their son a “safety transfer” from Intermediate School 117 failed — as did his dad’s last-ditch plea to the principal on the night before the stabbing.

When Crump began throwing unprovoked punches at Estevez, the latest in an unrelenting avalanche of abuse, the eighth-grader finally snapped Wednesday afternoon.

…Fellow student Raven Spencer, who was standing 3 feet away from the stabbing, said Estevez pulled a 12-inch blade as he stood on the sidewalk outside the Bronx school.

Crump was fatally gashed in the chest before Estevez was grabbed by school safety agents.

“The kid kept hitting me with his fist, so I kept stabbing him four or five times,” a Bronx prosecutor quoted Estevez as telling police.

…Estevez’s tormentors mocked him with homophobic taunts, hacked away his hair, pushed him down stairs and scrawled crude messages on his apartment door, said another neighbor.

“They would say his mama’s a crackhead,” said Erica Jones, 33. “They would say, ‘You’re stupid, you should just kill yourself.’ If he didn’t have that knife, he would have been dead.”

A building employee said the assailants urinated on the family’s apartment door at least a half-dozen times.

…“At one point, Timothy and Noel, they were best friends,” said family friend Milagros Arroyo.

The friendship soon crumbled as Estevez went from pal to pariah. Neighbors said the teen, who feared for his life, tried to hang himself in a closet last month.

…Arroyo said the boy’s mother told her that he worried the bullies were going to kill him.

“They would call the apartment, they would come to the apartment, write on the door. They would constantly harass him,” Arroyo recounted.

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.
