The town of Joliet, Illinois was shaken when news spread that Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins were allegedly heinously strangled to death, then hogtied by Joshua Miner, 24; Alisa Massaro, 18; Adam Landerman, 19 and Bethany McKee, 18. According to Miner, the twisted plan was sparked when Massaro revealed to him that she had always ‘wanted to have sex with a dead guy,’ and he attempted to fulfill her fantasy, reports the Daily Mail. McKee told police that Massaro was the ringleader and that she is the one who came up with the plan to kill Rankins and Glover.

McKee allegedly lured the victims into her friend’s Joliet home by promising them video games and sexual favors. While exact details surrounding the murders are still being investigated, police revealed the the bodies of the victims showed signs of strangling and attempted dismemberment. According to reports, following the killing of the men, Landerman is said to have jumped on their backs, attempting to ‘surf’ on the dead bodies. After a gasping sound was made by the corpses and final bowels were released, the suspects hogtied the victims with dirty articles of clothing and and electrical cords. Miner than piled the bodies of Terrence and Erica underneath a beige sheet so that he and Massaro could have sex on top of them.

“This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement. Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.” said Police Chief Mike Trafton of the murders.

“It’s demonic. This is evil,” said Terrence’s mother, Jamille Kent.

“It’s just senseless. It’s hard for me to say the words,” express Nicole Jones, mother of Eric Glover.

Massaro’s father revealed to the Herald-News that he was in total shock to learn that his daughter had anything to do with the crime.

“All I can say is it’s a terrible thing that happened, and I can’t believe my daughter had anything to do with it. I don’t know what happened. I just don’t know what to say. I can’t really talk about it. I’m too devastated, and I can’t talk about it.”

Although the victims were Black and all of the suspects are White, Charles Pelkie, spokesperson for the Wills County State’s Attorney’s Office say they are unsure if race was a factor in the murders. Bond for the suspects has been set at $10 million.

    And there are plenty of worse cases than this in the dependent classes that leech off of real, legal Americans.

  • DebNBrooklyn

    Tempted with the prospect of “sexual favours?” From those two females?! Dayaaaaam. Is it still really like that in 2013? Black males don’t get it yet?

  • This is gross and creepy….i am not easily freaked out but this has made me ill. I don’t think race has anything to do with it. I think it wrong place wrong ppl…

  • Ohson2me

    That’s a bunch of bull if they were black they would not have a bond and it will be considered a hate crime I hope they rot on hell

    • Do you think those kids can come up with the money for a 10 million dollar bond???? and I am with you on the rot in hell…..

  • Patricia

    They don’t deserve to get out of jail. They need to spend the rest of their entire life locked up.

  • moemiel

    i stopped reading bc it was sickening me. I keep thinking about those men. my mind cannot process the whys, hows of this situation.

  • JaneJane

    I don’t really care if the murders were on drugs…no excuse for this. Someone always wants to find the why when white kids murder! They are not the victims.

    • Exactly what I was thinking…who cares if they were on drugs?? The act was done and they should be charged for it.

  • jusFEDthaFup

    i just don`t know anymore. God help us……please help

  • Jolene

    They should all be stoned and be set on fire…alive.

  • These young people just do this kind of evil without giving a thought as to how they are ruining their lives, the victims, the victims families, and their own families! You can’t raise a person to be this way, this is an evil that has dominated their minds.

  • mac

    The stepfather crying was absolutely heartbreaking. I can only imagine if I lost one of my male family members this way. I literally think I’d go insane with a combination of grief and rage.

    Prayers go up for the family.

  • Kelli

    I’m normally against the death penalty, but there are a few cases that warrant it. This one of them.

    • me too Kelli! if any case warranted that sentencing, this is one. and they are all over 18. save some tax dollars.

  • Everybody knows white people don’t get much time for killing blacks.

    • Fair and Balanced

      Unfortunately this is true whether we want to face it or not. I have a MS in Criminal Justice and all one has to do is look at the statistics and the truth will jump out. Reality is painful but the truth is the truth and they will not get as much time if any as a black who kills a white.

    • mac

      the “degree holders” are out in full force today *rolls eyes*

      • chanela

        LMAO! i seriously thought i was the only one who noticed that.lol

    • Do blacks that kill black get much time….seems these days no one gets a lot of time for murder anymore ……that is what is wrong with ppl;….

  • realadulttalk

    WTF is wrong with people?!?!?! That’s some really sick ish I just read…may they all first rot in prison (no death penalties please, let them effing rot while being scared poopless everyday) and then may they rot in h e l l

  • Miss D

    Wow… I don’t live far from Joliet either. People like this don’t deserve a second chance. I imagine that the family is devastated, but how do you not know your child is troubled enough to something so sick? To a complete stranger ?

  • Its crazy…i hear too much crazy things happening in Joliet, Illinois …Mostly racist stories…RIP those and i HOPE those demons rot!

  • FromUR2UB

    How do twisted people find each other? It always amazes me when people who think like that, find others who think like that.

  • Nikki

    Death Penalty?

  • Vic

    Typical white behavior.

    • honey brown

      this not typical behavior of any RACE, This behavior is a definite sign of mental disease. Mental Health Diseases, and Disorders,cross all boundries, of race, religion, and creed. I am African-American, and your comment was out of line, and trust i am no UNCLE TOM. JUST sick of all the ignorance being spewed, about white, black,asian, and middle eastern,any description meant to divide, NOT ANY OF US IS GETTING OUT OF LIFE ALIVE, so we must learn to live, and enjoy our differences, as well as the similarities.

      • Kelli

        You’re right Honey Brown. I have a BA in Criminology, and this IS NOT typical behavior for any race. As a matter of fact, I believe this would not have happened if any one of them had been by themselves. This is pack mentality.

        • maggie

          So you with your BA, you don’t know that professional profilers would most definitely list young whites at the top of the list for necrophilia? Patterns do exist with some things–its the ugly truth.

          • SMHgurl24

            Source? A creditable one too

      • mac

        look, I’m sorry but he’s somewhat correct. Some of the most heinous crimes you hear on the news are committed by whites.

        Are they more depraved than others, who knows. But one can’t deny that there’s a pattern.

        • The news reports what it wants to report…. Does not mean things like this do not happen in other cultures or with other races… Smh

          • mac

            Not sure anyone said they didn’t. We’re talking prevalence.

            And I’m wondering since when did the media ever “choose” to portray whites in a bad light.

        • hmmmmmm…let’s weigh the 2…..black crime and white crime….you only see what you want…..you see white crime and that is all you can talk about…..but if you talked about black crime it is all you would have time to talk about…..and most of it is black on black……talk about that…….truth is crime is crime….and people are people stop making everything racial…..unless that is what makes you feel good….

    • Bring race into it….evil is evil…..so when those black guys tortured the white couple in Tenn for hours raped over and over then killed them …should I say typical black behavior???? they should all get fried……

      • Vic

        No , they were still acting out typical white behavior patterns.

  • Sagittarius81

    Sick f**ks! Illinois need to bring back the death penalty just for these sick f**king pieces of crapp!

  • sammi_lu

    I don’t know if I’d even be able to look at my child if I were their parents, I’d have to relocate.

    • mac

      disownment, off top. I don’t care. I’d be too disturbed and ashamed that I raised such a depraved monster.

  • StuckInDaMatrix

    This sounds like an occult ritual and they got caught!

  • JaneDoe

    I done seen and heard it all.. This is some sick ish right here.. Who thinks like that?

  • IllyPhilly

    WTF??? Damn. Souls must be hard to come by nowadays.

  • Tj

    I say burn these fuckers. Seriously.

  • rzakia

    I’m just glad that the four of them were over 18 so they can be tried and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. People like them belong in prison for life. They obviously have to regard for human life.

  • Mrs.A

    Demons roaming the earth!

  • DeepThinker

    Beyond sick! Reminds me of the Knoxville TN murders that happened a few years ago. I hope these losers never see light of day again.
