I am amazed at how the simplest of things could lead to an absolute disaster. And not only that, but how it’s not just an isolated incident. (see…here…and…here.)
I mean how can one human being kill another because the dog defecated in his yard? When these words are put to paper it sounds absolutely unfathomable. It doesn’t sound real. Is having your neighbor’s dog take a crap in your yard upsetting? Yes. Is it worth taking a machete out and killing your neighbor and injuring his partner? Well, to Amado Lago, of West Palm Beach, Florida, that was the proper course of action.
Evidentially there was a tipping point between him and his neighbor, Mauro Londono. That breaking point occurred when Londono’s dog defecated in Lugo’s yard. An incident that was apparently a duplicate of one eight months prior (according to a neighbor). This most recent altercation ensued to the point where Lugo pulled his weapon of choice, a machete, and proceeded to to hack away until London was dead and his partner, Claudia Morales, was wounded.
Lago was later killed when he failed to comply with officers’ demands to drop the machete, instead lunging at an officer.
If I was to say that Omar Mark Pettigen had issues with his mother, I believe it would qualify for the understatement of the year.
Family members stated that Omar and his mother, Nahlia, were having difficulties, but I don’t think that anything could prepare them for culmination of that distress.
Police found that Nahlia was murdered in her room with a wound that extended from her neck to her cervix. She was for all intensive purposes ‘disemboweled’ by her son. This act of aggression followed being shot seven times and preceded his final act of masturbating over her remains. The latter act was described by Omar, as a ‘release’.
Omar’s defense? He was upset with his mother being addicted to oxycodone. Really? You were upset with her addiction and mutilated her body? The rationale is mind numbing. According to Omar, his mother pulled a gun on him, to which point he dislodged it from her hand and then took a tomahawk (yeah, who doesn’t keep one of those handy) and bashed his mother’s skull in.
This is obviously a crime of the utmost depravity where the sanctity of motherhood was violated in a most obscene way by her own offspring.
You have to be a pretty sick puppy to do what Fidel Lopez did to his girlfriend Maria Nemeth. Lopez became so enraged with Nemeth that he beat and sodomized her upon hearing her call out her ex-husband’s name during a drunken sex session. But what sets this story apart and it gives it a particular grotesque feel is that Lopez reached inside of Nemeth, up to his elbow, and began to disembowel her. I can’t even comprehend the brutish physicality of this act. It’s one of those things that make you shudder upon hearing it. It’s a level of disgusting that previously had not been written in this blog.
Lopez called the police after his half-hearted attempt to revive Nemeth failed. His first attempt at explaining the situation was that the pair were having ‘rough sex’ in the closet. That could be the grossest understatement of the year considering the crime scene.
