“This homicide is the most gruesome act of evil I have ever seen in my career,” Eden said Thursday. “A complete disregard of human life.”
Think of the most horrific murder you can imagine. Now multiply by ten. That will STILL fall short of what you will read next.
What makes a bad crime into a horrible crime?
Special circumstances for the victim. Check. This victim was a little girl.
Acts of unusual cruelty and prolonged violence. You couldn’t possibly imagine.
An act of betrayal that makes it worse. This was a mother’s violence against her own daughter.
…ON HER TENTH BIRTHDAY!
Now you’re ready to proceed… if you can stomach it. This is NOT for the faint of heart.
On the day Victoria Martens was going to celebrate her 10th birthday, she was found dead in her family’s apartment by Albuquerque police officers, her dismembered remains wrapped in a burning blanket.
Details of what New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and law enforcement officials described as an unspeakable crime emerged Thursday in a criminal complaint made public and filed against the girl’s mother, her boyfriend and his cousin. The three were taken into custody late Wednesday night.
Police say Victoria was injected with methamphetamine, sexually assaulted, strangled and stabbed before being dismembered.
Everyone who calls for “justice” for somebody will need to look at a case like this to even understand the term.
Justice is when the innocent goes free. And the guilty truly pay a price.
The price paid by these three should be proportional to their crime. THAT is what justice REALLY looks like.
