Perpetrator: Fidel Lopez & Victim: Maria Nemeth
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.
Luis Ruiz was sending a message when he killed Carina Saunders brutally. The message was that he should not be trifled with and people ought to cooperate with him. See, Luis Ruiz was the proud owner of a human trafficking and drug ring, but before, believe it not, he was an elementary school teacher. He took Carina Saunders, he beat her in front of witnesses. He then took her to another room and proceeded to cut off her limbs while she was alive. He cut off her right foot and proceeded to cut off her left when the saw broke. How do we know so much detail about the incident? He video taped the incident with his cell phone so he could spread his ‘message’. Saunders body parts were found in a bag behind a grocery store.
This is like a sicker version of the television show, Breaking Bad. How a person’s moral compass strays so far is beyond me. And for a woman to have to endure so much pain in her last few moment is absolutely beyond comprehension. Ruiz and his associate Jimmy Massey aka “Country” are being charged with First Degree Murder for what it’s worth.
Apparently in Nebraska, three masked men broke into a woman’s home, destroyed her property, and tortured her by carving anti-gay slurs in her skin. They then poured gasoline over the home and attempted to burn her alive. She was found by police, naked and bleeding. I emphasize the word masked because I think it holds a dual purpose. One of anonymity and the other of cowardice. If you stand so vehemently behind your anti-gay and homophobic beliefs, why wear a mask? The only thing worse than a bigot is an anonymous one…
Regardless of your feelings regarding sexual orientation, does it ever even have to come close to the point that is mentioned in this story?
The human race is so disappointing. It’s disappointing in itself to know that we can’t let people be responsible for their choices in life. It’s disappointing we can’t accept people for who they are. It’s despicable that we can’t respect others and their person.
I know that this picture is gross and disgusting. The story is moreso. Having worked in optics for the last decade and a half, I am pretty sensitive when it comes to the eyes, so this story made me cringe a little.
Evidentially there are places in rural India that are like Salem, Massachusetts from the 15th Century. They blame their bad luck on the witches. Well, this time some people in the community were having a rough go of it and decided that something needed to be done. And what was their course of action? Ahhh yes, holding her down and putting scissors through her corneas (gulp).
Alas it gets worse, the husband, witnessing what is happening to his betrothed tried to intervene. And what does he get for his effort? He too has his eyes removed for his effort.
You will have to forgive me for my nonchalant way of describing the story but the event was horrifying enough without more morose verbiage.
These events are not merely isolated to rural India. We have seen equally disturbing things in the United States. Savagery itself is blind to all culture.
