I originally posted about the shooting murder of Jesus Silva here. He was shot to death in New Britain, Connecticut, after responding to a craigslist ad for a car he was selling. Jesus Sierra, Joel Jaquez, and Idaliz Zavala-Burgos have been charged with his murder. Before I said that I did not have any information on the motive for the murder but now new warrants have been released that allege what the motive was.
Investigators believe that Silva was involved in the drug trade and was ordered to be executed after he allegedly came up short with the money he owed his supplier. So far it is unknown if the supplier is going to be charged. Silva was also said to have brokered car sales frequently and it appears that his assailants used that information to lure him to his death.
Murders have been solicited for on craigslist many times before but this is the first time I’ve heard of a victim of a contact killing being lured to his death through the online classifieds site. It seems that criminals of all forms have some kind of use for craigslist.
On December 30th of 2014 Jesus Silva of Meriden, Connecticut, was found shot to death in his car on the streets of New Britain, CT. Since his murder police have arrested Jesus Sierra, Joel Jaquez, and Idaliz Zavala-Burgos, all of Springfield, Mass., and have charged them with Silva’s murder.
Today in a court hearing it was revealed that the murder may have been a craigslist killing. Mr. Silva had an ad on craigslist selling his car. His family said that he was in phone contact with someone about his car the night of his death and police say records indicate that he was allegedly speaking to Sierra.
No word yet if the motive was robbery or something more sinister. I’ll post additional details as they become available.
Richard Lester Biggs
Back in December of 2014 52-year-old Richard Lester Biggs of Clackamas County, Oregon, allegedly placed a craigslist ad entitled “Older for younger” and that he had a fantasy of being with younger women. The ad gets creepier from there…
“I want to see if I can find a younger woman who maybe has always wanted to be with an older man, maybe a Daddy’s Girl.”
Biggs got a response to his ad from a 13-year-old girl whose house he showed up to with booze, lube, and a sex toy. The girl refused to leave the house and when Biggs pulled away he was stopped and arrested by Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies. The entire meeting was a police sting targeting possible craigslist predators.
Well, they caught one because recently Biggs pleaded guilty to child corruption charges and was sentenced to 30 days behind bars and 3 years probation. Biggs’ attorney had this to say prior to sentencing…
“My client is not a predator nor is there a substantial risk of recidivism,”
Right, because all sorts of normal people bring dildos and lube to a 13-year-old girl’s house.
Normally I don’t like to post stories where the suspects have not been named however this one is so horrid that it needs to be shared.
Recently a 56-year-old man from Marysville, Washington, allegedly admitted to advertising his 6-year-old daughter on craigslist for others to molest. He’s also accused of raping his stepdaughter as well and also faces child porn charges for allegedly recording his step-daughter being molested by someone else. Investigators say that the man may have posted 190 craigslist ads for the girl. One woman in Texas is said to have made arrangements with the man to molest the girl’s daughter.
Where was mom you ask? You should know better by now. Mom was allegedly in on it and is facing child rape and child porn charges as well. Investigators say she can be seen in one video playing on her phone while her daughter is being molested.
This is going on through craigslist all the time. For every one of these scumbags that are caught it makes me wonder how many are out there doing this with impunity. This jackhole allegedly posted close to 200 ads. It doesn’t sound like too many of them were flagged by craigslist community policing. Then again when you’re community consists of so many pedophiles how much policing is really getting done?
Jose Omar Ortiz
28-year-old Jose Omar Ortiz is a registered sex offender and is accused of multiple rapes in Washington County, Oregon. He met one of his victims on craigslist but not the way you might think.
The victim posted an ad looking for a room to rent. Ortiz allegedly picked her up and drove to a rural area where he s said to have raped her. The victim tried fighting back with a knife she brought from home but Ortiz allegedly told her “You don’t put an ad on Craigslist and expect this not to happen.” Like it’s this scumbags God-given right to rape women from craigslist, but this is the attitude that a lot of sexual predators have when it comes to craigslist. Like I’ve said before they think of it as their personal rape take-out menu and it doesn’t matter which section of craigslist you use.
Former middle school football coach Robert Lesnau, of the Detroit area, was arrested back in March for allegedly soliciting sex from a six-year-old girl through craigslist.
According to federal investigators Lesnau contacted a woman on craigslist for her ‘adult services’. Allegedly Lesnau heard the woman’s six-year-old daughter crying in the background and asked how much would it be to have sex with the girl. The woman ended the phone call and reported it to authorities. The FBI stepped in and had the woman call back saying that she was desperate for money and was willing to entertain Lesnau’s vile request.
Let’s top right there for a moment. I can already hear the perv patrol crying and gnashing their teeth while wailing claims of entrapment. This is not entrapment. If the reports are correct, which I’m going to assume they are, the suspect was the first person to approach the subject of having sex with her daughter. If law enforcement were the ones to first bring it up then it would be entrapment. Now back to our story.
Besides, after you read this I don’t think anyone would believe a claim of entrapment…
A series of texts were exchanged, during which Lesnau asked for topless photos of the mother and daughter to ensure they were “for real,” asked about the child’s prior sexual experience and offered to pay $200, the FBI says.
Conversation became more graphic in a phone call the following day, during which the FBI says Lesnau said he wanted to watch the mother and daughter “play around together” with adult toys.
Investigators set up a meeting place at a Rochester motel where Lesnau was arrested.
Lesnau’s attorney is saying that the criminal complaint is one-sided and Lesnau is looking forward to his day in court. I can’t imagine what he could possibly present that would exonerate him.
Anyway once again craigslist is the go to place for pedophiles to find their next victims and craigslist still refuses to do anything about it. I don’t ever remember the newspaper classifieds being used for child rape back in the day.
Lesnau’s former school says none of the students he coached have claimed to have been abused.
Back in September of last year 37-year-old Catherine Goins was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing 30-year-old Natalia Roberts. Reports say that Goins lured Ms. Roberts to her ex-boyfriend’s home in Ringold, Georgia, claiming she was selling baby clothes. Goins is then said to have shot Ms. Roberts in the back of the head with the intention of stealing Roberts’ 3-week-old child to pass off as her own. Goins had told her ex that she was pregnant and when he found out that she wasn’t she supposedly came up with this plan. She even allegedly tried telling police that she shot an intruder.
Let’s stop here for a moment. In the history of forever has this plan ever worked? It seems like whenever some crazy woman claims to be pregnant and tries to steal a baby, often times from the mother’s womb, that they’re always caught. It boggles my mind just thinking how selfish a person must be to go to such great lengths for attention no matter the consequences.
In a recent hearing prosecutors said that Roberts had responded to a craigslist ad for children’s clothes that Goins had posted. If this sounds familiar it’s because craigslist has been used before to lure unsuspecting mothers into violent situations. In 2009 Korena Roberts of Oregon murdered a pregnant Heather Snively and cut the baby from her womb. More recently Dynel Lane of Colorado stabbed Michelle Wilkins and cut her baby from her womb. Ms. Wilkins survived but her baby did not. Both suspects in these cases lured their victims through craigslist ads for baby clothes.
Something as innocuous as baby clothes have led to at least three deaths through craigslist. That should serve as a warning to how unsafe craigslist truly is.
Before we get started let me preface this post by saying that so far only The Arab American News is reporting that this was a ‘craigslist killing’. I’m not saying that you should doubt the veracity of the article, I’m just saying that they’re the only ones making the craigslist connection so far.
Anyway, on May 17th 24-year-old Hassan Deaibes of Dearborn, Michigan was shot and killed after responding to a craigslist ad for motorcycle parts in Detroit. The ‘sellers’ changed the location of the deal once Hassan and his uncle arrived at the meeting place. The suspects allegedly robbed Hassan of his money before one of the suspects shot Hassan in the head. Hos uncle was driving and was uninjured and was able to flag down an ambulance, Unfortunately Hassan succumbed to his injuries the next day.
Three suspects have been arrested but have not been named yet. Two of the suspects are only 16 while the third suspect is in his 20s. No word yet on which one was the gunman who fired the fatal shot.
My prayers and condolences go out to the friends and family of Hassan Deaibes.
Personally, as I’m sure you know, I would never recommend doing any kind of business on craigslist. However of you insist on not heeding my warning if anything feels wrong at anytime during a craigslist transaction get out of there as quickly as possible or don’t even go to the meeting. Also many police departments are offering their parking lot as supposed safe zones to make these transactions.
For some reason a lot of people care more about what happens to animals than what happens to people. For example more people hate football player Michael Vick for dog fighting than those who hate Aaron Hernandez who actually murdered a man in cold blood. So since a lot of you don’t really care about the children being abused on craigslist this story is for you.
52-year-old William Farrell Russell of Seeley Lake, Montana, was arrested for allegedly offering his male German Shepherd for sex on craigslist.
Under the section “casual encounters,” Russell allegedly posted “seeking girls knot looking for a good time 0m4w-38.”
Knot is not a typo. Knot is a not so clever code word for people wanting to have sex with dogs. K9 is another one.
This is nothing new for craigslist and has been going on for a very long time. So if you don’t care that craigslist has become a haven for predators looking to prey on children know that it’s also the place where dogs are being constantly violated.
Daniel Louis Symons
Real life Peter Griffin over there is Daniel Louis Symons of Chesaning, Michigan. He’s accused of allegedly kidnapping a woman he met on craigslist. Michigan State Police say that Symons posted an ad looking for a submissive partner. Remember that part because it becomes important later. A 22-year-old woman responded to the ad however, she claims that Symons was not the man in the picture he allegedly sent. Symons is said to have forced the woman into his car.
Police pulled Symons over because his car was swerving. The victim was kicking around in the back seat causing Symons to get pulled over on suspicion of DUI. Officers found the victim in the back seat with a bag over her head, duct tape on her mouth and her hands bound by zip ties.
For those of you unfamiliar the term submissive, or sub, is used by people in the BDSM lifestyle. Some in the BDSM community might say that this was not a kidnapping at all but some kind of sexual role play. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen this used as a defense. Here’s the problem with that supposition. Symons allegedly misrepresented himself to his victim. That leads me to believe that this incident was not consensual.
Now there was a previous incident where a woman claimed she was kidnapped and raped by a man she met of craigslist but that turned out to be false as that woman admitted to indulging in a rape fantasy. Could that also be the case here? Possibly, and if it is I’ll post as much however, until that happens, and I don’t think it will, yet another craigslist predator has been taken off the streets.
Symons is being held on $500K bond.
