Joliet, Ill Double Murder by Two Young Couples
Young people who murder trip us out because we all have that belief that the young are innocent and sweet; our future. Then we remember evil comes from somewhere, it doesn't just spring up from the soul like a pop tart.
Alisa Massaro, 18; Bethany McKee, 18; Adam Landerman, 19 (son of a Joliet police sergeant) and Joshua Miner, 24, were the Joliet party crew and they were out of cigarettes, which is never a good thing if you're the party crew. They cook up a scheme to lure and rob people to keep their party going. Those somebodies turned out to be two 22-year-old males, Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins.
The victims and suspects were friends. They came to the house on the 1100 block of North Hickory Street to drink, smoke, play video games and party but instead were strangled and robbed.
After the murders McKee and Miner had sex atop the dead boys' bodies and played video games before going with the others to put gas in McKee's car and buy cigarettes and party supplies.
KcKee has been found guilty. McKee's sentencing date has been set for Oct. 16. Joshua Miner is to go on trial for the murders on Sept. 22. A trial date for suspect Adam Landerman, 21, of Joliet, has not been set.
Alisa Massaro, 20, pleaded guilty to charges of robbery and concealing a homicide in exchange for a 10-year prison term and her agreement to testify against McKee, Miner and Landerman.
