Van Breda murder trial hears horrific evidence

Marli van Breda, the former Perth schoolgirl who survived a horrific family massacre, put up a big fight against the axe-wielding culprit, judging by the defensive wounds she suffered, a pathologist told a South African court.

Harrowing evidence emerged this week in the Western Cape High Court, including that it likely took nearly three hours for Marli’s oldest brother Rudi van Breda to succumb to his massive injuries.

Their other sibling, Henri van Breda, is standing trial, after pleading not guilty to murdering their parents Martin, 54, and Teresa, 55 and his 22-year-old brother Rudi as well as attempting to murder then-16-year-old Marli in the family’s home in the exclusive De Zalze estate in Stellenbosch in January 2015.

Forensic pathologist Dr Daphne Anthony said Marli had suffered multiple defensive wounds on her hands and

NY officer’s body camera reveals horrific crime scene in murder-for-hire plot aftermath

Courtesy Collene Rose(NEW YORK) — Two police officers in Steuben County, New York, responded to a frantic 911 call just after midnight in September 2015 and ended up walking through a grisly crime scene.

One of the officers wearing a body camera captured something that seemed too horrific to be real. The victim was 35-year-old Kelley Clayton, a beautiful wife and loving mother of two small children. She had been bludgeoned to death in her own home.

“She’s been beat to death,” Deputy Dean Swan said. “I got a body cam on to show where we went … it is extremely bloody.”

Kelley Clayton’s husband, Thomas Clayton, was the one who had called 911 after he said he had returned home from a poker game and found her body on the kitchen floor.

Investigators began piecing together what happened and trying to make sense

Mother and sons killed in ‘horrific’ quadruple Gentilly shooting; daughter, 12, in serious condition

Residents on a quiet Gentilly street awoke Friday to a gruesome scene — a quadruple shooting that left a young mother and her two sons dead, with her 12-year-old daughter in serious condition at the hospital.

The shooting occurred before dawn, when New Orleans police officers were dispatched to a tan brick home in the 4200 block of Touro Street.

Though some neighbors said they didn’t hear any gunshots, officers who arrived at the home shortly after 4 a.m. found Monique Smith, 30, and her sons Jumyrin Smith, 6, and Justin Simms, 10, shot to death inside the house.

Also wounded by gunfire was Monique Smith’s 12-year-old daughter, A’Miya Smith, who was rushed to a hospital.

Smith and her two sons were all shot in the head, according to sources cited by WWL-TV. Police would not confirm how severely A’Miya was injured but said the girl was in serious condition.

Within hours, family members arrived

Gentilly family’s home scene of ‘horrific’ crime scene: 3 dead, 1 injured, NOPD says

Three people were killed and another person was injured Friday morning in Gentilly, New Orleans police said.

According to a police log, officers responding to a shooting found one victim with a gunshot wound and “three other victims who had expired.”

Police Superintendent Michael Harrison and investigators were on the scene at the corner of Touro and Mandolin streets. The incident was initially reported around 5 a.m.

Harrison at one point said “children were involved.” He later said he could not confirm that children were among those killed or injured.

At one point Friday morning, a crying man rushed toward the tan brick house, yelling “That’s my daughter! Those are my grandkids!” But he was held back by officers.

A group of about six people gathered around a woman who collapsed
