    Disturbing horrific new details emerge in murder of 91-year-old (White) man - (by worthless evil black demon)
black killerblack killerblack killerPaul MonchnikDETROIT - We’re learning disturbing new details about the murder of a 91-year-old man. Testimony is revealing just how awful his final moments alive may have been. A doctor told the judge today that accelerant was found inside the stomach of Paul Monchnik. Prosecutors say 17-year-old George Stewart IV murdered the retired TV repairman back in November. Monchnik was beaten and set on fire in his Detroit home. Stewart had just moved in with his grandparents, who lived next door to Monchnik. An assistant Wayne County Medical Examiner told a judge that he discovered about one-fifth of a cup of some type of accelerant inside the elderly man’s stomach. He said Monchnik may have been forced to drink the accelerant or it may have been forced into his throat. Members of Stewart’s family called police when they recognized his image from surveillance cameras at a nearby gas station – where he purchased gasoline the night of the murder. The judge did find there’s enough evidence to send the murder case to trial. - (Black-on-white) - (Burned Alive!)

    “She Couldn’t Breathe” – The Brutal Murder of 19 Year Old Jessica Lane Chambers…. (With Video)
Jessica Lane Chambers and friend19-Year-Old Jessica Lane Chambers was brutally murdered in Mississippi two nights ago. Unfortunately the details of her murder are so horrific to comprehend they make the current racial anxiety in the headlines seem small, yet also potentially more explosive. …When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire. […] They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose… Yes, Jessica was white; and no, by all accounts her killer(s) were not. She wasn’t just attacked, beaten, and burned alive – she was brutalized beyond all horrific imaginings. When you identify what took place, and contrast her horrific murder against the current national dialogue, you can also understand why the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI), and all Mississippi politicians, will most likely lead the media to bury this story as quick as possible. - (Black-on-white) - (Burned Alive!)

    "Crazy" homeless black woman responsible for burning four white people alive
Mary SmithJennifer CarlsonJoseph SchultzJerod PilgreenJason BowersCHICAGO - A woman suspected of starting a series of fires near Wrigley Field, including one that killed four people, was charged Monday with murder, authorities said.

Mary Smith, 43, was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated arson, the Cook County state's attorney office said.

Police identified Smith after witnesses reported seeing an unkempt woman, wearing clear plastic bags on her feet, near the scene of three small fires, said Edward O'Donnell, commander of the police department's bomb and arson unit.

The fourth fire, reported shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday within walking distance of the others, quickly spread through a three-story apartment building, killing four people inside a top-floor apartment, fire officials said.

Smith made a number of self-incriminating statements during questioning and witnesses identified her from "numerous" lineups, police said. She appeared coherent and calm, they said.

“There's some stuff that she knew too well, so she gave statements that would put her on the scene,” Area 3 Police Comdr. Thomas Byrne said.

Prosecutors: Negress Set Fatal Fire To Warm Up Cold Feet
The fire early Saturday at 3553 N. Fremont claimed the lives of single mother Jennifer Carlson, 24, her roommate Jason Bowers, 23, and two friends -- Jerod Pilgreen, 21, of Poplar Grove and Joseph Schultz of Belvidere. Carlson and Bowers rented a third-floor unit. A fifth person jumped from a third-floor window at the burning apartment building. The survivor might have inadvertently aided the fire’s spread, said police Bomb and Arson unit Cmdr. Ed O’Donnell. The man left his apartment door open, which “allowed superheated air and gases to enter,” O’Donnell said. At Smith’s bond hearing, Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Lacy said Smith set the fire in an interior stairwell at 3553 N. Fremont just before 7 a.m. Saturday. "She said she lost her shoes that night and her feet were cold," Lacy said. At the request of Smith’s lawyer, Assistant Public Defender Dayna Woodbury, Hyland sent Smith to Cook County’s Cermak Hospital instead of the jail. “All indications are she is seriously mentally ill,’’ said Woodbury. “She needs medication. She needs to see a doctor.’’ - (Newsroom) - (crime) - (Black-on-white) - (Burned Alive!)

Kate and William West
The 26-year-old African wife of a missing British pensioner is to be charged with murdering him after he was found to have been burned alive. Cops said the charred remains of tycoon William West, 76, were close to the couple’s luxury holiday beach home in Gambia. He vanished on July 3 while on a vacation with wife Kate. She claimed he disappeared after popping into a cigar store on a day trip to neighbouring Senegal. Mrs West was originally from Ghana but lived in Gambia with her Nigerian parents. She married Mr West six years ago — when she was 20 — after they met while he was on holiday in Gambia. Police are holding her in custody, along with a West African man. - (Newsroom) - (crime) - (Black-on-white) - (Burned Alive!) - (UK) - (Africa)

    5 Year-Old Lousiana Boy May Have Been Burned Alive by Ex-boyfriend in Vendetta Against His Mother
Terrence CarterCorinthian HoustonLa. — Investigators believe a 5-year-old boy was kidnapped in a "vendetta" against his mother and burned alive in an abandoned house, where police found his small body tied to a leather chair. Sheriff Johnny Ray Norman said Monday that 26-year-old Terrence Carter, arrested in connection with the kidnapping and killing, had been talking to investigators. Carter, who lived with his mother next door to the abandoned house, was arrested after the boy's body was found. Norman said investigators determined that the abduction and killing followed a dispute between Carter and the boy's mother. "It's a useless deal — just a vendetta, I guess you'd call it," Norman said. "He was trying to get back at his girlfriend." The boy, Corinthian Houston, was found tied to a leather chair. Norman said an electrical cord was wrapped around the child's neck, but he was not believed to have been strangled. An autopsy was pending. The boy's body was discovered by one of Carter's brothers, and their mother called police, Byron Carter, another of his brothers, told The Times of Shreveport. Terrence Carter and a co-worker, George Herring III of Coushatta, were arrested on kidnapping warrants Sunday, and Carter was booked on a count of first-degree murder, Natchitoches police Lt. Chris Stanfield said.  - (Newsroom)  - (crime) - (Burned Alive!) * Ex boyfriend accused of burning child to death
