    Angela "LaLa" Pettifer was found in her apartment raped, strangled and blinded by hot sauce which covered her face, head and sheets.

    Charged is a Registered Sex Offender who lived in her apartment building. Michael Benjamin. Witnesses said they saw Ms. Pettifer fumbling for her keys and apparently intoxicated when Benjamin approached and told them he was "unofficial security", and he proceeded to "help" Angela Pettifer. Later other witnesses saw Benjamin who was sweating and extremely nervous.

    Police found a bottle of Franks Hot Cayenne Pepper in the sex offender's apaprtment which was consistent with the sauce used to blind Ms. Pettifer. In the past benjamin assaulted a 7 year old girl he told to come in his apaprtment and help him plant a seed. Another child he took on a motorcycle and told her to watch him urinate. Offenses for grabbing young girls in a public swimming pool.

    OMG, horrible. And it's horrible that it could happen so quickly. It seems like a crime of opportunity. unfortunately, there's probably other women or kids.

    Another example of why RSOs should not be free! Had he been put away for life the first time, this young mother would still be alive.

    Prayers to her family.

    Senseless!!!!

    No mention of her kids in the news article, hopefully they were away for weekend. Am grateful they found DNA connection to this guy. RIP Angela

    newone, it was the father of Ms. Pettifer's 14 year old son who found her body.

    The story at this link is so sad. Angela Pettifer had been in an abusive relationship in 2008. Her sister urged her to move back home closer to family. She did that and her poor sister now says she guess she told her wrong. Very sad.

    Oh, well if his lawyer says his client is innocent, that's good enough for me. Benjamin couldn't possibly be guilty! :rolleyes:

    Funny how defense attorneys have this keen ability to find only innocent clients to defend.

    Perhaps they found DNA evidence elsewhere from his maturbatory activity. For instance, Rader (BTK) didn't rape some of the girls/women, he masturbated at the scene.
