NY/MD James David Martin AKA Snake
14 Years in an Unmarked Grave, and Finally an Arrest
Last winter, during a rape investigation by the Bronx district attorney’s office, advances in technology gathered more microscopic data out of those same swabs. There was a match: Marleny Cruz died, the police said, at the hands of a suspected serial killer.
JAMES DAVID MARTIN, 12 years older than Marleny, called himself “Snake.” When he was about 6, his mother beat his little sister to death, and he was sent to Maryland to live, Detective Reiman said. In 1989, when he was 17, he lured a 15-year-old boy into the woods, strangled him and, in a flourish that made the murder national news and put the case on the cover of Sports Illustrated, stole his Air Jordan sneakers. It was later revealed that the victim had been sodomized.

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?
