    I should have posted this is the Missing forum when I first learned about it...I guess I thought someone else would. Remember when the little girl in Houston was killed after her family's car was carjacked last week? Well, there was a rash of carjackings in Houston...and these two missing young people were the victims of another. It's turned out bad, too.

    This link takes you to where they have been declared missing:

    This link is about the outcome:

    Authorities have "multiple" suspects in custody and are looking for a few others in connection with the decomposing bodies discovered in northeast Houston Friday that may be two young friends who disappeared last Sunday.

    What is wrong in the world? So many senseless murders. The apparent suspects killed these two young people, but let other victims go. I wonder why.

    In their quest for easy money and cars, police said the small band of killers, robbers and thieves showed no mercy to those they encountered during a month-long crime spree...4 dead...
    Emotions ran high at a preliminary hearing Monday when Aparece's uncle, Arvin Aparece, suddenly vaulted over a rail and lunged at Johnson after another suspect claimed he sexually assaulted the woman just before the couple's deaths...

    In know in a case like this with so much evidence and their own words, I would have no problem at all with the Uncle being allowed to beat them to death with his own hands. I would offer ot assist if I were in the area. What useless useless scum and some attorney is going to get in the courtroom and put on a big show to defend them....his mother didn't breast feed him enough or tried to potty train him too early so feel sorry for him.

    A teen found guilty of murder in a deadly crime spree in Fort Bend County lunges towards one of the murder victim's family after he was sentenced to death, MyFoxHouston.com reported Wednesday.
    Immediately after the verdict was read, 19-year-old Dexter Johnson knocked over a computer monitor on the defense table and he lunged toward the victim's family. Harris County court deputies tackled him to the ground and he was dragged out of court.
    Johnson's mother started crying out after the verdict was read and members of his family tried to approach him and the deputies. Johnson's family was escorted out of the courtroom.
    • Click here to view video report from MyFoxHouston.com.
    The victims' families remained inside the courtroom following the incident.
    Jurors took about four hours to reach the verdict.
    Johnson was found guilty last week for his part in a string of crimes during Father's Day weekend of 2006.




    Investigators found the bodies of Maria Aparece and Huy Ngo in a field near the 10400 block of Gateway Drive in northeast Houston on June 23, 2006. Police believed Aparece and Ngo were carjacked and murdered.
    Several suspects, including Johnson, were arrested.




    I did a search for the names mentioned but didn't find anything here. does anyone know or recall this?

    ETa: Found some articles that give a bit of background info on what happened.

    that link made me physically ill, his mother is making any excuse possible for him heres an excerpt if you don't want to click!

    Johnson's mother told the jury that her son's father was never a part of his life. She said her boyfriends verbally and physically abused her son and two daughters.
    She told the jury that she was very poor when raising her children and once tried to give them away.

    Prosecutors said Johnson robbed, kidnapped, shot and raped Aparece. Johnson's attorneys claimed he was not the shooter.





    hmm, so raping, kidnapping, and robbing isn't that bad? he didn't shoot them so it's ok?

    is this the new phenomenon? We can call it the missing dad syndrome. makes people do all kinds of F$$$## up sickening things, all because they didn't have a daddy growing up. AND the people that don't turn out like that are in secret studies that alter their brain pattern or something.

    I AM SO SICK of this. When the hell are people going to grow up and take responsibility for what they have done and stop blaming it on everyone and everything else?

    Poor little Dexter. His daddy wasn't around and mommy couldn't find nobody to have sex with but thugs. So he grows up and kidnaps, rapes and murders. Don't you see? He couldn't help it! He's just misunderstood.

    :sick: :sick: :sick:

    He deserves every bit of what he got. There are many other people who were raised without a father in their life and they don't go out committing crimes. They lead decent lives.

    Instead of worrying about getting some, his momma should have been concerned with teaching him right from wrong. She could have found help and bettered the situation for herself and her offspring. It would have been extremely hard but other women do it daily.

    Adios, Dexter.

    I think the punishment fits the crime! two people were killed and assaulted. whether or not he actually pulled the trigger doesnt matter he was there he could have stopped what was going on if he didnt want it to happen.
    He NEEDs to die just like his victims!!!
    All this violence....I really wish we could go back to hard labor prison. maybe people would think a little harder before making wrong decisions.

    While I've never been a fan of Dr. Laura, I remember her once telling an unmarried mother that her first responsibility was to her child, and if she had little or no social life, well, so be it.

    At the time, I thought Dr. Laura's response was unfair to the woman, but the more cases like this that I see, the more I think Dr. Laura was right. Dexter's mother raised (or didn't raise) this monster. Her lifestyle and **** boyfriends contributed to his demise. IMO, she should feel some responsibility that he turned out like this.

    YES! YES! YES! And I am so glad the jury saw him lunge at the victims families. Makes them feel like they did the right thing immediately.

    I agree 100% with what Dr.Laura says. I raise my kids this way. They come first and always will as a matter of fact I have lost some friends along the way because I refuse to go have dinner ''with no kids'' with them or go out for drinks etc etc.. eventually they just stopped calling. I don't care. When my kids are grown I can then have my life back or whatever but for now I dedicate my every minute to them.

    You're doing the right thing. My two sons are now through college and have respectable jobs. They both live near and have remained close. All the effort will reward you in the end.

    Hi mygirlsadie,

    Not trying to be argumentative here - just curious. Do you really never do anything without your kids? It makes me a happier person and a better Mom to have dinner with my friends or a date night with my husband on a regular basis without the kids around.

    Thanks, SCM

    It is so sad that yet another young person is going to die as a result of his choices that night. I wonder what happened with the other 3 involved in this crime. Did they plead out? If so, they probably got life.

    I always think it's pertinent to hear what a defendant's life was like - to know some of the causes that could have led them to such a dark place. I don't perceive it as excusing their behavior - I see it as trying to show a full picture of a person to the strangers who will be determining that person's fate.

    I am grateful we have defense attorneys willing and skilled at doing this. It is a vital part of our justice system.

    I agree. I think it is very important that we have research done on criminals and their lives prior. I am truly interested in what leads people to a life of crime. I am not looking to make excuses for people, but understanding their lives and their circumstances helps us as a society know how to identify warning signs, etc. The man in this story was raised surrounded by violence. I want to understand what triggers him to snap and continue this violence, while others are able to escape that cycle and make a normal life for themself. For us to shrug our shoulders and just say who cares, lock him up and throw away the key, is ignorant and dangerous, IMO. Wouldn't we better off trying to learn why this happened and how can we prevent someone else from living such a life?

    I was just about to post the exact same thing. I don't think going out every once in a while for dinner with friends is putting my kids second at all. It relaxes me and makes me a happier better person to be around.

    Thanks for that, teonspaleprincess. I'd go NUTS without mommy breaks every now and then - and I feel like my kids need them too. I was thinking that perhaps mygirlsadie doesn't have people she's comfortable leaving her kids with or something like that....maybe she will come back and tell us.

    learning about their environment, their way of life etc, is one thing, hell, we do that with foreign cultures, and the life that some of these people choose to live is as foreign as foreign can be to me..

    however, my issue with the mother and the attorney in this case is that they were IMO making excuses - IF his dad were around, this wouldn't have happened, BECAUSE he seen his mother break down, he had a bad day and chose to lunge at those present, well hell, at least he still has the ability to see his mother and vice versa, what about those that he participated in the losing of their lives? do they not count to him..well wait..obviously not :doh:

    learning about ones upbringing can sometimes be one of the best tools used for those trying to help, something about the thought process, i'm not explaining it the right way, but hopefully someone can step in and help! but making excuses because of what one willfully chose to do, is sickening. there are plenty that have had similiar upbringings to his and i'm sure much worse, and not every single one of them decides to do what he CHOSE to do.

    getting repetitive so stepping down now!
