Janet Tyburski Ohio


Janet Tyburski murdered her own daughter, 26 year old Rachele Tyburski, and then dumped her body in a field where she was found in March of 2015. Authorities say she suffocated Rachele in their home in Lakewood on March 13th. 

Her body was located by the landowner who called police. Police issued information on the body to the public in hopes someone could recognize her. Janet actually called the hotline to say she believed the body to be her daughters. 

Rachele's father died in 1999. Her mother was left to raise three children alone. Rachele had bipolar disorder and was often violent and destructive. Rachele's grandmother described the mother/daughter relationship as contentious. 

Janet is being held on a 2 million dollar bond. No other information is available.


Heather Birden Connecticut

Holly Aeschlimann
Holly Aeschlimann, 19 was murdered in Connecticut in April of 2015. This case is amazingly close to that of Rachel Wade. Holly and her killer, Heather Birden, 20, had a longstanding dislike for each other. Heather had stabbed another girl, a juvenile, once before in 2014. She was held in Niantic Correctional Facility for next three months before the murder as a result of a violation of her probation, and was then released to an in-patient substance abuse rehabilitation facility.

Reports state that Birden asked her boyfriend for his knife and then left his house to find Holly stating "I have to end this tonight." Witnesses say Heather arrived and the two began to fight, ending in Holly being stabbed in the head and neck at a crosswalk outside an apartment complex in Torrington, CT.  Her friends rushed her to the hospital where she died. 

Heather was hiding under a vehicle a short distance away and feigned confusion when police found her. She spent the next several hours under investigation alternately crying and showing confusion before eventually admitting to stabbing Holly.

Witnesses and friends of the two girls say they had never gotten along and bickered and fought all through high school. News reports stated this particular fight was over a boy Holly was dating and Heather was friends with. 

A witness captured the fight on cell phone video. Police say it was Holly who threw the first punch and can be seen clearly pummeling Heather who is under her at one point. From her position under Holly, she swings the knife and slices Holly's throat. Holly stand up and holds her throat. Blood is seen escaping through her fingers and she screams for someone to take her to the hospital. 

She was officially charged with murder in on May 1, 2015 and is in jail on a $1.2 million bond.

Elita Maldonado's Sister Calls Out a Commentor

I wrote about the curious case of Elita "Gaby" Maldonado back in February. She is the mentally challenged woman who heard the voices of her children while servicing a john in Nevada back in May of 2014. She killed him by beating him with a 40 lb barbell and stabbing him. She did some things that made her seem very NOT crazy. Like, carrying empty boxes to the car in an attempt to make her presence seem normal. She was know for being and acting crazy, however, and was seen more than once rambling along the road, talking to herself. She was sentenced to 28 years to life in April of 2015.

A few weeks ago I received a rather strange and rambling letter from Elita's sister, Gloria Maldonado. In it she said she had no issue with my blog post on her sister saying "it is what it is" but she found great issue with the comment from Jay Bald.
..the comment of Jay Bald is total fraud and false Information. Yes, Elita did have a rough life BUT she had those around her who tried to help her but she was held captive by drugs and alcohol issues and also mentally unstable growing up.  You can't force a person to change unless they want to change themselves! 

Oddly enough, she asked me if I have to check each commenters mental health before I allow them to comment. Um, no. She claims that she does indeed know Mr. Bald and that he himself is mentally unstable and has terrorized her family for years after another of her sisters divorced him for abuse.

Just know that he is not a person of right mind. He continues to hurt this family no matter which way possible and has now gone to the extreme of commenting false information. We are already suffering enough with the incarceration of my sister and separation of our nieces that we DO NOT need people putting negative comments about what they assume or make the family out to be! Jay Bald will continue to hurt this family no matter what extent because he has never gotten over the fact that his wife divorced him (for safety and sanity reasons)! 
She then encouraged me to look him up on the Wisconsin Courts website.  I did and found nothing. She claims he harasses the family at every turn and purposely tracks down articles about Elita to hurt the family. SO, theres that,

The jury rejected her insanity plea and found her guilty of first-degree murder and robbery in the death of William Sanford. When her attorneys spoke for her they talked of a lifetime of methamphetamine use and how that had changed her brain forever. That isn't exactly the same as a mental disability.

When Elita took the stand she talked of flying cars, Big Brother, Big Bertha and forgiveness.

“This man’s blood is going to be on my hands the rest of my life, and I’m never going to forget what I’ve done — ever,” she said. “No matter what kind of medication I take or what kind of therapy I go under.”

She talked of being in prison, where “Big Bertha punks me out, and I’m all the sudden her bitch,”

“Big Brother, the eye in sky, is going to be more intense,” she said of the time when she could possible get parolled. “By the time I’m 60, I hope cars will be flying. I have a dream I’ll be hovering around in spacecraft with my family.”

She isn't mentally disabled. She's an addict and they still have to pay for their crimes. It would be ideal if she could get the help she needs in prison but sadly, we know she will not. Gloria is right about one thing, however. Drug addiction is a terrible thing and you cannot help someone who doesn't want to be helped.

Ohio 11 Year Old Kills Baby

This one is just baffling me, folks. Can you believe this? An eleven year old girl in Ohio took the 2 month old baby her mom was babysitting to a room upstairs in her home and beat her to death while her mother was sleeping.

The girl has yet to be identified but the babies name was Zuri Whitehead.
Trina Whitehead, her 31 year old mother told the New York Daily News that she is very close to the girl's mother and that she had insisted on taking the two month old for the night to give her some rest. Trina also has two other daughters ages 7 and 8 who she had let spend the night there previously and says she has never noticed any signs of strange behavior from the girl.

Reports say the mother, daughter and baby Zuri fell asleep on a couch in the downstairs area of their home. After the mother fell asleep the daughter took the baby upstairs and beat her to death. She came back down with the baby in distress about 45 minutes later and woke her mother. Zuri late died at the hospital from her multiple wounds including blunt impact injuries to the head, neck, body, arms and legs and liver lacerations.

The 11 year old was charged with murder on Monday.

Amanda Taylor Virginia

Can we just take a moment and say WTF?
If any woman has ever just went completely batshit, it is Amanda Barbara Nichole Taylor and is so often the case, it didn't have to happen. The people who loved her tried with all their might to stop her madness and the people they turned to for help dropped the ball. Now there is death and destruction to deal with and it is Amanda who will be punished for it.
Charles & Rex Taylor
Amanda and her husband Rex had a torrid love affair marked with drug abuse. Rex hung himself in August of 2014 and Amanda was left a widow with two children at the ripe old age of 24. A short time after his death, Amanda found some letters he had left for her detailing life long, horrific abuse by his father. She had suffered from personality issues her entire life and like most, self-medicated with drugs and alcohol. When Rex hung himself, things grew worse for Amanda. The fact that his father, Charles, had started him on drugs when he was 15 was on a running loop in her head, repaying over and over the fact that he was gone and his father had started the madness.

Sean Ball
She stayed off and on with her mother and her friend Mariah Roebuck before finally committing herself to a mental facility after a suicidal rampage at Rex's grave on the couples shared birthday. She simply lost her mind. Roebuck and her mother expected her to be kept there for quite a while. Her antics and thought processes obviously askew. Surprisingly, she was released three days later on her own recognizance. Thats when she stabbed her father in law to death on April 4th as he lay on the couch in his home.

While staying with her friend Mariah, she began palling around with Sean Ball, another sometime couch-surfer of the Roebuck's. She packed up a folder with strange items like gothic drawings and letters from serial killers her and her husband had written too, all wrapped up with sparkly ink and a picture of her and Rex. Once she was released from the mental institution, things seemed to escalate with her unstable personality issues and Mariah and her husband refused to let her stay with them again and also kicked out Mr. Ball, who had fallen in love and deep infatuation with Amanda. The two became inseparable and he was present when she killed her father-in-law. The pair then went on the run.

Amanda had no intention of going without punishment for her crimes, she planned to punish herself in the ultimate. Nor did she seek to keep her deed a secret. Soon after taking to the road with Mr. Ball, she began to make social media posts claiming responsibility for the murder and explaining that she did it for her husband. Eventually, somewhere down the road they were running on, she tried to kill Mr. Ball and left him bleeding on the side of the road from a gunshot wound.

Shes now in a Virginia jail awaiting her June 19 court date to review mental evaluations and set a hearing.
