I originally posted about the brutal murder of Carina Saunders here. She was the 19-year-old girl from Bethany, Oklahoma whose decapitated and dismembered body was found in a duffel bag behind a grocery store in October. Originally investigators thought that she may have been killed by a couple of Juggalos. It turns out that it was something terrifyingly more sinister.
33-year-old Jimmy Lee Massey has been charged with Carina’s murder. He allegedly tortured and killed Carina to prove a point to someone else. Investigators say that Massey was involved with a drug and prostitution ring. They also say that Massey and 31-year-old Francisco Gomez grabbed a woman off the street, blindfolded her and made her watch the torture and death of Carina. The woman was told that if she didn’t cooperate with Massey’s prostitution ring that the same thing would happen to her.
And yet some people say that prostitution is a victimless crime. I would imagine that the friends and family of Carina Saunders would disagree.
Oklahoma does have the death penalty unfortunately the preferred method of execution is not a rusty wood chipper.
