Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

posted by on October 28 at 17:08 PM


Detectives have arrested an Auburn woman accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill the father of her child, his wife and his parents by beating them to death with a piece of re-bar.

The motive, Auburn police believe, was the couple’s custody dispute.

It was probably cheaper than a lawyer.

Everyone knows that's an improper use of re-bar.

It's better to use it to stake down your tent at Burning Man.

Thank you for running one that didn't involve the graphic re-victimization of some poor child who was horribly abused by sick parents.

Guess who's got custody now?

I wonder why she was so specific about such a weird method of murder... what was her backup plan, shoving unbent paperclips under their toenails until they died of infection?

@5 - the re-bar?

In some places, re-bar is called re-rod...

I don't get the motivation for this post. First of all, if a single mother was in danger of losing custody because the father could offer "a mother and a father" that kind of defeats Dan's cause. Second of all, if she had succeeded and then went to prison, then the child would have been available for a gay couple to adopt -- right?
