Angry Krista-Rae Pike, 18, killed by fiance's ex-girlfriends' boyfriend

http://maderatribune.1871dev.com/new...w.asp?c=234917
Anatomy of a murder: Final minutes

Saturday, January 26, 2008

By John Rieping
In the last moments of her life on Jan. 14, 18-year-old Krista-Rae Pike was assaulted, slashed and beaten. As she lay in a pool of blood with her jeans near her head, her panties ripped off and her bra cut from her body, her attacker photographed her with a cell phone and sent the image to the person now charged with soliciting the murder.

This is the scenario police laid out in search warrants and affidavits filed Thursday with the court. Police say Pike was murdered in the home of her fiance (Thomas Hollier) by Dustin Gran, 19, and that he was abetted by Brittany Navarra, 16. Pike knew both of them.

who i would like to meet no famous people really as for relationship im into tallness, blond or black hair(long liked the most), colored eyes, great personality, i love a lil demonic side in a guy : ], funny, sweet (to me at least), not scared to take risks, loves the mountians... not much of a city boy : ]

Might want to try this for the Google cache of the "Silenced Crys" page:

http://snipurl.com/silencedcrys

Something weird happened when i tried to click that link above, TM.

Since it looks like fiance and girlfriend were singular, then you wrote "fiance's" correctly, but the other word should have been "girlfriend's." I can see why it might have been confusing, though.

Thanks,

Steve

There was a smiley emoticon mixed up in there, Steve. Hmm. I think sometimes characters in these url's transfer to emoticons here at WS.

Anyway, I edited my original comment using the short and sweet url you gave me. (I always forget about that site!)

Thank you!

Thank you, Taximom for all that information. Read them comments. I wonder if "Jen" actually is telling the truth? That's just all so sad and senseless.

These myspace accounts may actually help in convicting killers. Most of these people are beyond stupid.

What a terrible thing to happen to this sweet young girl. I was watching the slide show of her and her friends and I could hardly stand it. She was just such a cute girl and always looked so happy. I can't imagine how anyone could do this to another person.

How did that Navvero..sp..talk that Gran guy into doing this? It sounds like he was a loner and I just wonder if she didn't use him for this purpose. Get friendly with him...act like she liked him..talk him into commiting this horror.

Their lives have also ended except they are still breathing. Just so senseless.
I hope they both spend the rest of their lives in prison. That is where they both belong after doing something so horrific. In the end Satan got them.

I just watched the video... what in the world did they do to that poor child that it took extra HOURS just to finish the autopsy.

Ms. Pooh, I saw that first comment image, too... it gave me the shivers. What possesses these kids and young adults to do this stuff!!?!?!?!

And where are this Brittney girl's parents????? All that whining and snievling about losing her "love" - her mom should have been all over that - in my opinion, as it was totally excessive. Should have been a little talk about that "demonic side" too!

Children under 18 should not be allowed to have MySpace unless the parents enter into a contract to monitor what the child is doing and saying there. I think there were some real clues here as to this girl's state of mind and I would have been really worried about her if she would have been my child.

Prayers to Krista's family and friends. May they find peace. This was just so senseless.

Salem

Sounds like I am blaming MySpace - not what I mean. I just think if the B's parents would have been reading her MySpace, they may have had the good sense to talk to her about some of the things she was feeling with regard to the ex-boyfriend.

Salem, I ran across another less, scary myspace that belonged to Navarra. I forgot to link it but don't have time to find it right now. IIRC, maybe it was her "cover" myspace. Sometimes teens do that to show their parents that there's nothing to be concerned about. lol Well, not really "lol".

"He had a brain tumor removed about three years ago. Major brain surgery."
I wonder if this is true; it may explain Dustin's actions if there is a organic brain problem.

According to those posting on that link with the comments; Thomas' myspace was pretty satanic also.

"Lets just say that Gran’s and Navarra’s pages were not the only ones that were demonic and violent. I understand that in this country we have the freedom of religion…Hollier listed atheist….ok, under loves….his answer….killing things. And what just gave me a sick feeling in my stomach….under who do you want to meet….Hollier’s answer….the devil."

How did Krista get mixed up with those loosers? Was she into all of that stuff too? Kind of hard to believe that someone not mixed up in it would be with and hang out with those that are. The whole thing is really creepy. So far, the devil is winning with these kids. The boyfriend sounds just as creepy as the other two. Maybe he needs locked up to before he hurts someone.

This was a VICIOUS crime. Update:
http://abclocal.go.com/kfsn/story?se...cal&id=6083387
A judge ruled there is enough evidence to send 16-year-old Brittany Navarra to trial.
Navarra and 19-year-old Dustin Gran are accused of killing Krista Pike on January 14th.
A Madera Police Officer testified one of Navarra's friends said Navarra asked Gran to kill Krista as a Christmas present to her. Krista's fiance used to date Navarra.
Another detective read an apology letter he claims Navarra wrote shortly after Krista's murder. One portion of the note read, "Krista was a young beautiful girl, I'm very sorry I caused you to lose her. It started the day Tom left me. I became hurt and confused. I became to hate Krista more and more," the note went on to say, "You may not believe me, but I would give up my life to bring back hers. I so sorry, I never realized this would ever happen til it did."

I was wondering how a book could be out about the crime when it hasn't even gone to trial yet!

WR, I couldn't get the first link (willkern) to work. Can you try it and see if you get an error message? It might just be my pc. So what did this other Pike do? ETA: WOW, I just read the wiki article on the other Pike. How odd they are so similar!!!
