In Urbana, Ohio five Juggalos have been arrested for the murder of 21-year-old Jessica Rae Sacco. Those arrested were Matthew Puccio, 25, Christopher Wright, 37, Sharon Cook, 25, Kandis Forney, 25, and Andrew Forney, 26.
Puccio was Ms. Sacco’s on-again off-again boyfriend. At one point Sacco moved in with her then his freeloading Juggalo friends soon followed. Ms. Sacco was described as being outside the Juggalo circle.
Police believe that Puccio killed her by suffocating her. He also stabbed her in the abdomen but that wound was not fatal. They believe he did this while the others looked on.
His defense, if you can call it that, is said to be that he believed she was going to kill him before he killed her. That’s right kids, he’s claiming self-defense. Except that a self-defense killing usually isn’t done in the presence of onlookers. And did I mention that Ms. Sacco was dismembered and some of her remains were found in Kentucky? Yeah, that’s so not self-defense. This was nothing more than a thrill kill in my opinion.
Now once again one of the articles I linked to call the Juggalos a gang. I hate to break it to everyone but Juggalos aren’t motivated enough to form a gang but like I keep saying if the fans of ICP keep committing crimes like this my words will fall on deaf ears.
Also once again I have to address the theory did the music make them do this. I say no. The violent lyrics of ICP don’t influence people to kill. I believe that those Juggalos who do commit violent crimes already had the propensity to commit these atrocius acts long before they ever heard of ICP. But I will say that there are an inordinate amount of Juggalos who do commit violent crimes as compared to fans of other bands.
As I was getting ready to finish up this post I just noticed that one of the suspects is 37-years-old. If you’re 37 and still calling yourself a Juggalo you have not only failed at life but you have failed the universe and civilization as we know it.
UPDATE 4/12/2012: Puccio has now allegedly claimed that Ms. Sacco begged him to kill her.
“She was pleading with me to slash her throat and slash her wrist…do something. And I told her… No.. I can’t do that to you and she told me to stab her then. So I just held my hand above her stomach. She grabbed my wrist and pulled it into her stomach.”
Puccio also claims her last words were, “I still love you and I forgive you.”
Right. And four other people just standing around decided that was ok and that dismembering her body was also a proper response.
A friend of the victim claims that the possible real; motive behind the slaying was that Sacco had asked Puccio to move out. That makes a lot more sense than anything these brain-dead losers can come up with.
