Tucson Juggalos charged in grisly double homicide

Trio plotted another murder before killing elderly couple, police say:

Terry, Drattlo and Harding

Terry, Drattlo and Harding

I haven’t done a Juggalo story in a while. Leave it to the mimes to come back in brutal style. To answer your next question yes,the gentleman on the left is sporting a clown makeup face tattoo. More Juggalos should do that so it would be easier to spot them.

Anyway the trio of mimes are 23-year-old Edward Terry, 20-year-old Kyle Austin Drattlo, and 21-year-old Brianna Harding. They’ve been accused of the July double murder of Erskin and Mary Louise Fulgham, an elderly couple from Tucson. The 83-year-old Mrs. Fulgham was stabbed repeatedly to death while the 87-year-old Mr. Fulgham was stabbed, beaten and stomped to death. Mr. Fulgham also required the need of an oxygen tank. Just like Juggalos to pick victims who have little ability to fight back. Both Terry and Drattlo tip the scales at 200+ pounds.

After the trio was picked up in Nevada driving the Fulgham’s car they all started turning on each other. To make matters worse supposedly the Fulghams are Drattlo’s grandparents. So why murder them to begin with?

Harding said she and her fiance, Terry, met Drattlo in December 2012 and they had lived together in Drattlo’s apartment until June when they were evicted. She told detectives they all used Spice, a synthetic marijuana, smoking six bags a day at a cost of $20 per bag. Terry said he and Harding were homeless and made money panhandling.

Pathetic. Just some more drains on society who dare call themselves a family.

Juggalo in Utah ax attack has appeal denied

Utah Juggalo loses attempted murder appeal in battle ax case:

I’ve previously posted about this attack here, here and here.

In 2008 Juggalos Cody Jesse Augustine and Scott Tyler Stapley attacked Justin Ennis with a replica battle-ax and a knife that left Ennis with permanent injuries. The reason behind the attack was that because Augustine got an STD from his then girlfriend who allegedly got it from Ennis. Both Juggalos were sentenced to 3 to life on attempted murder charges.

Last week Augustine had his conviction upheld by the Utah Court of Appeals. Augustine’s lawyer tried arguing emotional distress saying that his client wasn’t in his right mind after finding out about his STD. Um..I don’t think that’s how the emotional distress defense works. I believe that’s called motive. If I understand correctly an emotional distress would be something like that the suspect was in a bad mental state because of a death in his family and the STD just sent him over the edge. I don’t think the direct cause of an attempted murder can be considered emotional distress. At least the Utah court of appeals says so. If the article didn’t have a picture of his lawyer I’d have to wonder if he was a Juggalo too.

How much do you want to bet the ax was bought a flea market and someone save up all his weed dealing money for it?

ICP sues FBI. WTF?

hatchetmanglow

The Insane Clown Posse Will Sue The FBI:

Last year the FBI named Juggalos as one of the most dangerous gangs in the country. Think about that for a second. The FBI, the nation’s law enforcement, supposedly the brightest minds in criminal investigation, have put Juggalos on the same threat level as Crips, Bloods and MS-13. Ninja please.

While it pains me to say this it takes brains and effort to run a large gang, something most Juggalos are severely lacking. While I have been down on the clowns as it were, having the feds classify them as a gang is an extreme waste of taxpayer money. While there are gangs of Juggalos not all Juggalos are gang members. For the most part they’re either suburban white kids with no taste in music or stoners who are so baked they don’t realize that painting your face like an idiot is for kids at birthday parties.

Having said that the band that started it all, Insane Clown Posse, are now suing the FBI to get their fans declassified as a gang. This isn’t a waste of the legal system at all. Not to mention do you really want to piss off the FBI? I’m not saying it’s right but they could make ICPs life a living hell if they wanted to.

Anyway the while situation is laughable. I would think that the FBI would have better things to do with their time like, oh I don’t know, fight human trafficking rather than picking a fight with a bunch of retarded mimes.

Whoever wins, we all lose.

A gathering of Juggalos accused in grisly Ohio murder

urbanajuggalos

Forney, Cook, Puccio, Wright, Forney

5 arrested in slaying identify with ‘gang’:

Ohio landlord found dismembered body in bathtub:

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 atrocious 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.

Juggalo charged with MT home invasion stabbing

Dante Kirpal Kier

Dante Kirpal Kier

Gang Member Faces Attempted Murder Charge in Kalispell Stabbing:

Again, I think calling Juggalos a gang gives them way too much credit. And is it me or does this guy look like a clown even without the make up?

Anyway that’s 19-year-old Dante Kirpal Kier. He was arrested for allegedly breaking into a family’s home in Kalispell, Montana and trying to stab the homeowner to death with a steak knife. The victim received stab wounds to his arm and the inside of his mouth but was able to subdue Kier. The man’s wife and kids were home at the time as well. According to police not only did Kier admit to being a Juggalo but he also admitted wanting to kill because ‘it felt good’.

Yet another mime who can’t differentiate between a gimmick and reality. I say that because there are a lot of bands out there that have violent lyrics besides ICP but the majority of music fans know that those lyrics are just a gimmick. It just seems that the Juggalos have an inordinate number among them who try to live the gimmick. I’m not blaming the music just the individuals who take it too seriously.

Kier’s father says that Kier has mental illness and drug abuse issues and that he should stay in jail out of concern for the public’s safety as well as his son’s. The public may be kept safe from Kier for an awfully long time as he is looking at 110 years on attempted murder charges. Maybe more clowns will see this and think twice before thinking they’re such badasses.

Pa. Juggalos sentenced in slaying of ex-soldier

Two Sentenced to Life for Stabbing Death:

21-year-old Shawn Freemore, aka Skippy Critter, and 19-year-old Ian Seagraves, aka ThrOwT Stabba, were convicted back in September for the brutal murder of former soldier Michael Goucher. Goucher had been stabbed multiple times with a knives and the prerequisite meat cleaver. Today the pair of Juggalos from the Poconos learned their fate.

Both Freemore and Seagraves were sentenced to life without parole. The pair had claimed the killing was in self-defense and so have some of their defenders. However as I have said previously one does not stab someone with a partner 50 times in self-defense.

At the sentencing Skippy had this to say to the family of Michael Goucher…

“I apologize and I’m sorry for your loss. Don’t think I’m a monster. You don’t know the whole truth.”

Really? Then what is the truth? Does it have anything to do with the ‘poem’ that you wrote about the murder in great detail?

The truth is that you are a monster and this was nothing more than a thrill kill for the mimes.

Juggalo accused in the murder of Amanda Taylor

RonaldWeems

Ronald Weems

Police release more details on Amanda Taylor’s death:

No motive found in murder:

In Muscle Shoals, Alabama investigators recently discovered the remains of 32-year-old Amanda Taylor. The mother of three was strangled and her toes and fingers had been removed. Police have charged a Juggalo with her murder.

Police believe that Ms. Taylor was killed by 33-year-old Ronald Eugene Weems. According to his mother, Weems is a Juggalo. Not only that but he actually lives with his mother. No word on if he occupied the basement of his mother’s house.

Some reports say that Weems killed Taylor for stealing a child support check from his baby-mama, Laurel Ann Pruett. Pruett and Weems have a 4-year-old daughter together who is actually in the custody of Weems mother. Pruett was also arrested for allegedly supplying police with a false alibi for Weems. Also arrested was 21-year-old Matthew Richard Fox for allegedly coming up with the plan to cut off Taylor’s digits to avoid her body being identified.

Of course, the question is going to come up if the ‘music’ of ICP caused Weems to kill. As much as I deride Juggalos the music does not cause anyone to kill. It’s more of a case of people with violent tendencies being drawn to their music.

Some law enforcement agencies classify Juggalos as a gang. To me, that’s a misnomer because a gang signifies some kind of national organization. Most Juggalos don’t have the mental capacity to tie their own shoes let alone organize a gang. There may be pockets of Juggalos who act like a gang but they should not be classified as a gang on the level of something like the Crips. In my opinion, they are more like a trailer trash cult who somewhere along the way forgot the fact that ICP’s violent lyrics are just a gimmick. But back to the matter at hand.

If you’re 33 and you still consider yourself a Juggalo you’ve obviously failed at life.

UPDATE 5/16/2013: Pruett, Fox and a third person, 26-year-old Ashley Greenhill, were all convicted of abuse of a corpse and sentenced to 10 years. Weems was convicted last month and is looking at life.

Juggalos convicted in murder of former soldier

Men Found Guilty of Monroe County Murder:

Jury convicts pair of 1st degree murder in deadly stabbing:

Two found guilty of murder in Monroe County:

21-year-old Michael Goucher of Stroudsburg, PA served in the military, volunteered in his community, and strived to become a police officer. In 2009 his life was cut short by a pair of worthless Juggalos.

This week 21-year-old Shawn Freemore, aka Skippy Critter, and 19-year-old Ian Seagraves, aka ThrOwT Stabba, were convicted in Goucher’s murder.

The pair had stabbed Goucher over 50 times with a knife and the standard Juggalo weapon of choice, a meat cleaver. Goucher was gay and Freemore lured him to his death by posing as someone romantically attracted to Goucher. Freemore tried to claim self-defense but since when do you need a buddy to help you stab someone over 50 times? Unless the guy was Jason Voorhees that defense is not going to fly. The pair even wrote a rap song about the murder.

Seagraves was 17 at the time of murder and was charged as an adult.

Both are looking at mandatory life sentences. No word on a sentencing date yet.

Do Juggalos actually contribute anything to society except helping to keep prisons filled and putting money into the pockets of their local weed dealers and ICP?

AZ Juggalo charged as Facebook kiddie toucher

timothylowemug

Timothy Lowe

Timothy Lowe Arrested for Sexual Exploitation of a Minor:

To me, there are two kinds of Juggalo criminals. There are the ones who are actual gang members committing violent crimes and then there are guys like 22-year-old Timothy Lowe of Arizona City, Arizona. Lowe has been arrested for allegedly having sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl and got her to send him explicit pictures through Facebook. The age of consent in AZ is 18 and did I mention that the girl is a special needs child?

Lowe supposedly told police that not only did he know the girl’s age but that he also had sex (child rape) with two other underage girls that he met on Facebook.

I found out that he’s a Juggalo by a stroke of luck. I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I actually went to his Facebook profile. I won’t post a link to it because I don’t think his family and friends should be harassed for something he may or may not have done. Anyway, while there I came across this picture.

TimothyLowe

Just one of many of him in full Juggalo regalia.

I think I know why some Juggalos go for underage girls. I think it’s because of most ICP fans probably grow out of the face painting in crap by the time they reach 18 so they can get women their own age. The ones who don’t grow up need to go after little girls who still think it’s cool.

Seattle Juggalo pleads guilty to beating mentally ill man to death

Steven Bauder

Steven Bauder

Two transients plead guilty in fatal beating of mentally ill man:

I originally posted about Juggalo Steven Bauder and his non-juggalo friend Marcus Dennis here. They were both in trial for the hours long beating death of 25-year-old Noel Lopez.

Dennis believed that Lopez raped a 15-year-old female friend of his. Police say that Lopez liked the girl but the two never had any kind of sexual relationship. Bauder, considering himself a ‘street enforcer’ assisted Dennis with beating Lopez to death.

Two weeks after the trial started the pair have pleaded guilty to Noel Lopez’s death. In the terms of the plea they are facing a max of 26 years. If they would have been convicted of first degree murder they were looking at life sentences. The pair will be sentenced in early 2012.

Bauder also considered himself part of a group called Downtown Juggalos. Again, if you don’t want police to consider you a gang don’t all dress alike and have the same haircuts and commit murder. That’s what gangs do.
