I refrained on commenting on this crime before but the bizarre just get ever more so. Joshua Miner (the disheveled hombre on the bottom right) was told by his girlfriend Alisa Massaro that she fantasized of having sex on with a dead person. I don’t want to understand the logistics nor the rationale for that but what Miner decided to do next was incredibly more bizarre. Minor and his associates above lured Terrance Rankins and Eric Glover to his girlfriends home. They robbed them and then proceeded to kill them.
Now whether it was the fantasy that prompted this homicide or the motive of robbery is up in the air but what happened next leads me to believe the fantasy played a part. Minor invited Massarro to have sex with him on top of the dead bodies of Rankins and Glover. She initially rebuked his attempts but once he threw a sheet over the dead bodies, she relented. The two proceeded to copulate on their victims. It is also suggested that Landerman participated in the sexual romp on top to the bodies. After they had sex on top of the corpses and body surfed on top of them, they planned to keep the victim’s teeth as trophies. Now their is no proper decorum when it comes to murder but assuredly there is a way to make the atrocity worse and this was indeed the fashion.
The four individuals then attempted (I guess this means they failed) to dismember the bodies and continued to party while the two corpses remained in the house. When the police knocked on the door, three of the aggressors were playing video games.
This crime was both nonchalant and grotesque. Maybe it’s the fact that it was nonchalant that makes it grotesque.
