    NY - Vinessa Hoera, 23, Westhampton Beach, 27 Feb 2004

    There is great concern over the disappearance of a young mother in Suffolk County. Vinessa Hoera, 23, was last seen at work on Friday, and her burned-out car was found a day later. Adding to the mystery, a hospitalized co-worker's car was also torched.

    The two burning cars were found hours apart Saturday morning, one in Ronkonkoma, the other in Southampton.

    Each belonged to an employee of a small East End seafood store. Neither car had license plates. And, both had been parked on the side of roads far from where their owners lived.

    Man admits to murder of single mom

    Hi Sleuthers-

    Trying to help keep this forum active with new (though sad) stories.



    Guilty plea in killing
    Man admits to murder of single mom and gives details of crime at hearing as grieving family listens

    February 16, 2005
    With his victim's family watching through tears in a Riverhead courtroom, Faustino Chavez described in new detail yesterday how he raped, suffocated and slashed the throat of Mastic Beach single mother Vinessa Hoera.

    As part of an impromptu agreement, Chavez, 26, pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree murder for killing Hoera, 23, a co-worker at a Westhampton seafood store.

    In exchange, Acting State Supreme Court Judge Michael Mullen promised to sentence Chavez to 22 years to life in prison on March 15. If found guilty at a trial, Chavez could have been sentenced to life without parole. Pretrial hearings had been scheduled to begin yesterday.

    "If I had my choice, the man would never see the light of day," said Hoera's mother, Donna Monti, of Flanders. "[But] if I had to go through a trial, I don't think I would have been able to handle it."

    All of these stories are sad, bbmcrae. Unfortunately they are all true though.
    Thanks for posting it.
    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?
