    IL - Samuel 'Sonny' Pierce arrested for 3 murders, taping attack

    I'm not seeing a thread on this guy. Please merge if one exists. My prayers go out to the families of these young women.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110421/...xtYW5hY2N1c2U-

    Ill. man accused of killing 3 women, taping attack

    "Prosecutors said Wednesday that a suburban Chicago man charged with killing three young women, including two whom he met on telephone chat lines and a neighborhood teen he's accused of having videotaped sex with after her death, may have more victims.

    Sonny Pierce, 27, of the Chicago suburb of Blue Island, faces three counts of first-degree murder. A judge ordered him held without bail during a court appearance Wednesday. A public defender who was in court with Pierce declined comment.

    Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez, in announcing the charges, pointed to a "pattern" of behavior that allegedly stretched for about a year before Pierce's arrest on another sexual assault. Authorities have not identified any victims besides the three at this time, but believe there could be more...."

    and

    "...Two of the young women were killed in August 2009. Prosecutors said Kiara Windom and Kimika Coleman, both 18, were slain within a span of about three weeks. Authorities allege Pierce lured both to his apartment, strangled them and dumped their bodies in alleys..."

    and

    "....Investigators made a chilling discovery when searching Pierce's home, according to court documents. They said they found a videotape believed to be from July 2, 2010, that shows Pierce having sex with the lifeless body of a young woman....."

    He was questioned in the disappearance of two of the women when they disappeared. He had been talking with them on the phone. But it wasn't until he was charged with raping a young neighborhood girl that they got his DNA. Looks like necrophilia might be an issue here.

    Mother of alleged serial killer: He’s not guilty

    On the day her son was charged with murdering three teenage girls, Esther Pierce is in her Blue Island apartment, trusting in God that he didn’t do it.

    “The devil is alive,” Pierce said, raising her arms over her head. “Hear the truth, world, we’re dealing with an injustice! Hear the truth!”

    Sonny Pierce, who is currently being held at the Cook County Jail on three first-degree murder charges, spoke to reporters via speakerphone at his mother's house.

    "The only thing I am guilty of is having consensual sex with too many women," he said.

    The Blue Island man charged with slaying three teenage women was investigated last summer but never charged in the May "death by neglect" of his girlfriend's toddler son.

    Well that makes four murders that he was investigated for but never charged. At least not until after he committed a sexual assault.

    According to the court documents, Pierce admitted having sex with Edwards "despite her cries for help" in his apartment while other men looked on. Investigators said he told them he and the other men beat Edwards to death, put her body in a garbage bag and dumped it.

    But authorities said Pierce has refused to say where the body was taken. No others have been charged.
    http://www.wect.com/story/14486748/i...-taping-attack

    I think his claim that he had sex in front of other men and they beat her afterwards is interesting. An effort to deflect blame maybe? Plus a way to deny that he was into necrophilia? Publicly he has denied killing the women and said all he did was have "consensual" sex with them. The same woman, Mariah Edwards, is who was identified as being on the video tape where she was "lifeless" and he was having sex with her.

    From the link above:

    "....According to the court documents, Pierce admitted having sex with Edwards "despite her cries for help" in his apartment while other men looked on...."

    Just who are these "other men"? Are they talking about men being physically present or the rape and murder being shown on a webcam? As one blog writer said, "And people say that snuff films are an urban legend."

    People disappear in Harvey.

    So when Kiara Windom was reported missing by her mother in August 2009, police didn’t seem concerned.

    “They said she was 18 and could do whatever she wanted,” said her mother, Hallena Johnson, who lived with her. “She had only been missing 24 hours, and they said she would probably turn up back home.
    http://www.suntimes.com/news/4937780...h-penalty.html

    She disappeared in Aug. of '09, was found in Aug. '09 (about the same time her family reported her missing) and her remains weren't identified until the next July.

    Blue Island church holds vigil for missing congregant

    Though it sounds less like a "vigil" and more like a prayer at a regular Easter service.

    A Blue Island man accused of killing three teenagers and raping a fourth has been moved to protective custody in the Cook County Jail, telling his attorney he felt threatened by the other inmates.
    http://www.suntimes.com/news/5073947...unty-jail.html


    Attorney Nicholas Albukerk on Thursday asked a judge to place Pierce into protective custody while he's being held without bail. Albukerk told the judge "people have been getting in his face."

    Another day of searching for the body of a teenage girl on the south side found no new evidence and authorities are questioning whether to continue on searching at this site.
    http://www.wgntv.com/news/wgntv-sout...,1080856.story

    Peloquin said Pierce gave them three locations where the body may have been located and that the 130th and Doty site was “the most logical one to search” but they also had checked the other locations and found nothing.

    I can't find any updates on Sonny Pierce after 2011. Was he ever prosecuted?
