Mother Murders Children…By Placing Them In Oven…Video Chats Father

It’s distressing to think that there is this much mental illness in the world today. We are constantly bombarded, or I consistently find stories like the one I am about to describe in Lamora Williams.

Lamora was a 24 year old mother of three children. She was described as being mentally unstable by her family as a child. She was removed from public education because she could not keep up according to her mother. She was dealing with postpartum depression since the birth of sons Ja’Karter and Ke’Younte. And perhaps the last straw that broke her psyche was when her boyfriend and father of the children, Jameel Penn, left her.

It was the culmination of these events that lead Lamora Williams to place her 1 and 2 year old child into an oven, turn it on, and walk away until they roasted to death. These beautiful children died in an oven!!! These babies were cooked to death! I can’t imagine the horror and the torture that they endured. It is probably more than most of us will surmise in an entire lifetime. She then, in an act of spite, vengeance, or sickness Video Called her ex-boyfriend, and showed him the bodies of his lifeless children. I can’t comprehend the pain of this man and that of the family.

I break just a little bit every time I hear a story like this because the cruelty, even through sickness, is a little hard to bare. And again, this is not an isolated story, many mothers and fathers have killed their children this year alone, because the “devil told them to” or “it’s God’s will”. It’s a phenomenonm that is in all communities. And the only ones who can combat these atrocities is the vigilance of loved ones and family.

The Japanese Serial Killer: Takahiro Shiraishi

Sometimes a story comes along that is enough to shock humanity. These days, that takes a lot, but by now most of us have now heard the initial story of Takahiro Shiraishi. He is the 27 year old Japanese man who appears to be responsible for the deaths and dismemberment of nine individuals.

Apparently he dwelled in the dark recesses of life and the internet. Shiraishi skipped out on a grocery store job shortly after high school and then became a ‘Talent Scout’ in the sex industry, targeting young women for prostitution. He gained a poor reputation in this industry (which should speak volumes if you are known for nefarious dealings here).

Through the internet, on Twitter, he went by the name, ‘HangingPro’. From that account he attempted to recruit women who were in despair and wanted assistance in committing suicide. He established a connection base on empathy and helpfulness, but in the end it was his selfishness, depravity, and perhaps depression that drove him.

He used statements such as the following to lure and isolate his victims into comfort:

“I want to help people who are really in pain. Please DM me anytime.”

and…

“It is not good to tell friends, family members and social networking sites that you are going to die before committing suicide.”

He killed nine people over the course of two months, one man and eight women all of whom were young, from 17 to mid-20s in age. The man was killed as a witness to his girlfriends murder. The motives are still muddled and perhaps numerous. They include the desire to rape some women, though it unclear if they were indeed raped. He also is said to have robbed one of the victims of 3,400 Yen.

Friends and early acquaintances of Shiraishi as quiet but social and not a sense of the impending man he would become. He solicited murder and performed violence at uncommon and gruesome rate for Japan. Police found heads, limbs, and his bloody tools of the trade when he was arrested this passed Tuesday. I am sure we will here more of this story in the coming months.
