    PA - Murray Seidman, 70, bludgeoned to death, Upper Darby, 12 Jan 2011

    John Thomas aged 28 of Upper Darby said the Bible made him do it.

    Thomas stoned to death 70 year old Murray Seidman because he claimed Mr. Seidman made a sexual advance towards him. Thomas told police he got a rock and put it in a sock and hit Mr. Seidman in the head probably about 10 times.

    O..K. I am calling bull on this Thomas said he spent every single day with Seidman. He is also the sole receipitant of Seidman's will. He knew how much money Seidman had. So all of the sudden he's mad the man made an advance towards him? This is the Christian thing to do even if that were true? It's premeditated as he beat the poor man in his own apartment. What did he just happen to have a rock lying around?

    I don't believe that defense is going to be recognized by the Court.

    Mr. Thomas will hopefully have plenty of time in a prison cell to read his Bible. Perhaps even memorize it!

    This is sickening. He wormed his way into the old man's life, wormed his way into the estate, whatever it is, and blames offing the poor old man on a pass. Even if one ocurred, which who knows if the perp is even telling the truth.

    Seems kinda hard to reconcile a man not put off by someone who was maybe into him but was put off so much by a supposed pass that he murdered him in a rage? Or is he suggesting the elderly man was phsyically assaulting and his only recourse was a rock in a sock?

    Mr. Seidman was developmentally challenged. He was a long time resient of Elwyn and worked out of Mercy Fitz hospital for many years in the linen department. I wonder when Mr. Seidman got his own place, and why? Elwyn has been around forever and has been used as a model for other places across the country that provide some fabulous services.

    John Joe Thomas? How did they meet? He was to be getting Baptized soon and Mr. Seidman was going to be his Godfather. Soooooooo you spend every single day with this man and you ask him to be your Godfather, and you're in his will and just now all the sudden he makes an advance? Who cares even if he did? You go out and find a dang rock and stone the man to death?

    Also Thomas was arrested in January for getting washed in a bathroom at Jiffy Lube or one of those type places. He ran out without his clothing naked and got arrested. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    RIP Mr. Seidman.

    Murdering idiots will say anything to escape punishment. Thank goodness it doesn't usually work, too bad they have to actually murder someone to realize it. Dumb ***.

    John Joe Thomas is schizophrenic. He's also a supposed Priest or brother in the Church of The Latter Day Saint's.

    It's doubtful the Prosecution could question his sanity because Thomas has been 302'd numerous times. Once for killing a cat he said had the devil in it.

    Another sad, senseless crime where someone couldn't get the help they needed. Now this leaves Mr. Seidman murdered.

    From February 2012:

    http://www.delcotimes.com/general-ne...y-pal-to-death

    A 29-year-old Upper Darby man pleaded guilty but mentally ill to the stoning death of his 70-year-old neighbor.

    John Joe Thomas was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in a state correctional facility for the Jan. 12, 2011 murder of Murray Seidman, who lived in the same Lansdowne Avenue apartment complex as his killer.
