    ID/CA - Joseph Edward Duncan III

    The U.S Supreme Court rejected a petition Tuesday to hear the competency case of a convicted serial killer whose victims include a 10-year-old Beaumont boy.

    Duncan has a whole forum in the archives, mostly found in the Trials thread. I really wouldn't mind if it stayed buried.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Joseph Duncan Scheduled For A Court Hearing Friday Morning

    Convicted murderer Joseph Duncan is back in the state of Idaho for a court hearing scheduled Friday morning.

    [snip]

    Duncan passed these tests before and if he passes this latest test, his death penalty will stand. if he fails that could mean prosecutors may have to retry him.

    I'm in shock about this. There's a possibility he could be re tried for the murder of Dylan?

    If that happens, it just can't happen.

    Now that he went back to court, he decided to appeal his death sentence!?!?!


    Ugh. It's way past time for this beast to be killed!

    Jazzy likes attention. He must not feel he is getting enough on Death Row.

    He made his deals. I think when he agreed to plead guilty that he thought someone would think that makes him worthwhile. But it didn't. Now he wants attention, and he has had time to think about his decisions. And besides that it is in his nature to rebel from society. To me saying I didn't mean to plead guilty means about as much as saying yeah I kidnapped that kid and killed him and I am sorry. Sorry is just too late. And the same goes with saying I didn't mean to plead guilty. Too late.

    If they would just inject him we wouldn't have him filing all these appeals.

He makes a passing comment about causing harm to others and then dives right back into the pain his mother has suffered and how devoted she is to him. His appeal hearing was set for January 12, 2011 and this slimy letter to consider his endorsement of the appeals is dated December 8, 2010. With Duncan it is always about control.
    I'd forgotten all about the above post, which was posted back on 12-15-10.

    Now, it's all coming back to me ..... unfortunately.
    Damn! Here we go again!

    My heart goes out to Steve and Shasta, and family. I'll be keeping them in my thoughts and prayers. I just hate that they have to keep having this evil demon resurface in their lives!

    Found a couple more articles.

    Duncan changes mind, says he now wants to appeal his death sentence
    May 18, 2012 3:14 p.m. • 1 comment


    Notorious multiple murderer Joseph Duncan was back in a Boise courtroom this morning, as lawyers and a federal judge wrangled over setting a date for a new hearing into whether Duncan was mentally competent when he waived appeals of his triple death sentence for torturing and murdering a 9-year-old North Idaho boy.

    Duncan alters course on sentence appeal
    Citing concern for his mother, murderer wrote to ask judge for defense attorneys

    May 19, 2012 in Idaho


    “It would be utterly cruel, and indeed, inhuman, for me not to consider my mother’s love when deciding what to do in regard to my own life,” Duncan advised U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge. “So I hereby inform you, and any others concerned, that I withdraw my waiver of appeal and consent fully to all efforts and advice given by my attorneys to appeal.

    “I love my mother, and if I could only regret one thing, it would be how I have hurt her. I am the biggest fool that I know.”

    What a total waste of time and taxpayer's money!
    (Notice he didn't regret killing four people (make that 5 counting Anthony) and kidnapping Shasta and making her witness such horror!)

    I really don't understand what there is to review.

    Typical Duncan up to his old tricks. My question is if the review upholds that he was competent to defend himself at the sentencing phase and the death penalty stands, does that end his appeals and we can get on with his execution?

    Strange how he seems to think. He hasn't seemed sorry for torturing kids. But I guess that didn't hurt his Mom. He doesn't seem remorseful for killing a family. But maybe Mom ddn't care about that. He is no longer even showing an appearance of remorse for the abduction of two children and for torturing them and killing one. Or for the damage he caused the survivor. Maybe Mom wasn't concerned about that either. But now for not fighting the death penalty, a penalty he was legally and justly given IMO, now that he has dcided to fight on his mother's behalf? Maybe he needs to think about giving his mother some closure, by continuing with the death penalty without appeal. Then Mom can begin mourning for him and finally put him behind her.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This is just another of Duncan's attempts to look human. His brother has been dead for nearly five years even before his trial in Boise when he wasn't the least bit concerned about his mother's needs. He is hiding behind his mother like he hid/hides behind Shasta. Duncan just enjoys jerking us all around. He is a master maniplulator and, incredibly, he still has friends that will help him out. As long as he lives, he will be whining he is the victim and accusing and abusing everyone else.

    Wasn't sure where to put this, as I don't think we have a general thread just for the Groene case anymore. But I thought it needed to be posted.


    We thought it could never happen here

    Seven years ago today one of the most brutal crimes ever to take place in our community claimed the lives of Brenda Groene, her middle-school aged son Slade and her fiance Mark McKenzie. Brenda's two youngest children, Dylan, 9 and Shasta, 7 had been kidnapped by the murderer.

    BOISE – A court hearing on whether condemned murderer Joseph Duncan was mentally competent when he waived his right to appeal his death sentence has been set for Jan. 8, 2013.
    “There will be no extension,” U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge said Monday as he set the hearing.
