    MissIzzy - sadly it seems that dismembering a body is just not so uncommon any more...I don't know that it's as much related to worshipping Satan, as just doing his Evil works.

    Just as I think there are people who are good w/o worshipping a Higher Power, I think there are *bad* people who aren't devil worshippers.

    It's just getting unreal how many *bad* people there are -- everywhere!!

    The dismemberment always gets me, though. I fully realize that many people can be driven to a crime of passion or act while under the influence. However, cutting up a body is another whole issue. I have no idea what this guy's plan was but I can't ever ignore those dates. Might be nothing but I sure as heck don't want it minimized as it was in East St. Louis with Zachary Irvin's death on the Solstice. That boy was raped, bound, shot, dismembered, and set on fire. I just want LE to closely examine the motive and precipitating factors.

    Autopsy Confirms Denver Teen Shot, Dismembered

    <snip>

    The autopsy report released Friday contains gruesome details about how the girl's body was dismembered and large sections of her skin cut off. The report also states some body parts were never found.

    The pathologist found that Martinez died from gunshot wounds and her body was cut apart after she was dead.

    twisted and evil - IDK, maybe Missizzy's onto something w/ the satanic worship angle.

    or drugs.

    I was watching a true crime / forensics show this week, and they said the most common reason for dismemberment is to get a body to fit inside a box, bag, etc.

    But cutting the flesh off is something altogether - it raises evil to another level, IMO.

    Oh Dear God!

    I try really hard to think that freaks like this are a aberration, not so sure anymore. I am losing faith in the entire human race.

    Oh for Pete's sake, I am in the middle of wrapping Christmas gifts. If something doesn't fit in a box, I GET A BIGGER BOX!!!!

    IMO It shows a complete and total disconnect from other human beings, a complete lack of remorse, and a psychopathic mind at work.

    Only a hint of a motive, from Romero's trial, January 2013:

    http://denver.cbslocal.com/2013/01/2...over-up-crime/

    Romero’s friend, Manny Gonzales, testified that Romero came into the house just after the murder and told him, “I killed Alicia. She got out of line and I had to kill her.”

    Gonzales also testified he was initially ordered to leave the garage where they were all hanging out so Romero could hit on her.

    [A] woman, who prosecutors said took Martinez to the party where the crime happened, pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Jacque Perea said she left the teen at the party after a few hours.
    From March 2013:

    http://www.denverpost.com/ci_2282321...-dismemberment

    Edward Timothy Romero will spend the rest of his life in prison, without the possibility of parole, for the murder and dismemberment of a 16-year-old Denver girl...

    Speaking directly to Romero, Robbins said putting a pistol in a pillow, putting that pillow against the teenager's face and firing twice was "brutal enough." "But the things you did to Alicia Martinez after that horrible act were completely unspeakable," he said...

    That girlfriend, Francesca Pagliosotti, testified that Romero forced her to help as he cut up Alicia's body, even putting parts of it in a blender and flushing other parts down the toilet in the basement of the home, where they lived with their two young children... Pagliosotti is serving a 10-year sentence for her role in trying to cover up the crime.
