Joseph Vignola Jr. admits attacking woman he met on Craigslist:

Angry looking little bastard isn’t he?

Anyway this is one of those stories that I don’t know how the hell I missed it when it happened. Back in 2008 Philadelphia police arrested Joseph C. Vignola Jr. for slashing the throat of an 18-year-old woman that he ‘met’ on the then erotic services section of craigslist.

The pair met at a hotel where they had sex then argued about something (money?) and Vignola punched her in the throat, sat on top of her until she passed out then slit her throat. And in true GTA style he took the money that he gave her.

To make matters worse Vignola tried blaming the assault on a ‘light skinned black man’ that supposedly broke in while they were having sex.

Last week the now 21-year-old son of a former Philly city councilman pleaded guilty to the brutal assault. He’s looking at 30 years but his equally slimy lawyer is trying to get him 4 1/2-7.

Vignola should be touted as the poster boy of the kind of scum that used to troll the erotic services and adult services section and that probably still trolls the casual encounters section and currently trolling the erotic services sections outside the US. A guy like this is also probably trolling the adult sections of backpage as well.

No monitoring means the inmates are running the asylum and this guy is the prototype.
