Still no arrests in triple homicide in my town :(

14 replies • Last post

I shared this sad news with LM, and now I am sharing with all of you, because these senseless murders so disturbed me. I am hoping everyone can send out positive thoughts that this cold-blooded killer will be caught.

A local day-care provider and her elderly parents, who she has JUST moved here to be with her ONE WEEK before the murders (from St. Louis) were murdered in cold blood at a little after 6 o'clock in the morning on April 8th or 9th.

This woman asked the neighbor to teach her how to mow the lawn after her husband passed away, she went through knee surgery and a double masectomy, and she had a ramp built onto her home so her father, who wass in a wheelchair, could have access to her home. According to everyone, she had a big heart, and cared for her parents and many children.

Read more about this tragic story here:

There was another homicide the very next day, bringing the fourth homicide of the year in my suburb of Minneapolis in just two days, and they did catch that person, but the one who killed the daycare provider is still at large.

Completely senseless and very sad and tragic.

Very sad. I feel they will catch this person sooner or later. The reward money is too tempting for someone not to turn him in.

Wow, that is horrible. I cannot understand WHY anyone would want to kill someone else.

Senseless really.

I watched a documentary last night called "Into the Abyss", which is about two teens that killed a woman for her Camaro and then two other boys just so they could get into the gated community to get access to the lady's house.

So dumb.

I have heard cops say they have seen killings for candy bars, two dollars, tennis shoes, and on and on, and I will NEVER understand it either, 'Slim. I don't know how anyone can be so desensitized as to take another person's life.

I am afraid my suburb is getting more violent, and many people are talking about moving, but really it can happen anywhere.

I am SO hoping someone will turn this guy in for the reward.

I think tv and games and movies have desensitized kids to violence. It seems so many people are so influenced by what they see. Have you ever noticed how if a "star" wears a particular brand of clothing, or says a particular saying that a ton of people mimic them? I can remember when Paris Hilton had a little dog. That breed of dog became so popular and lots of people started carrying dogs around as if they were accessories. I also think that with two parents working full time or even overtime, kids have way too much time to be influenced by others.

It seems if people will kill for a candybar or $2, someone will certainly be greedy enough to call for the reward. The only think that would stop them would be if they are afraid of being found out and killed themselves.

LM, I agree about the trends and society trying to copy the movie stars, etc. Just look at the young girls who try to starve themselves and think their "thighs are fat" when they are of a perfect weight. There is a ton of, not only peer pressure, but societal pressure, on young people these days, and yes, it is difficult for parents, too.

So far, nothing.

An arrest has been made in the triple homicide. I am SO grateful for the family of these victims!!! Earlier in the month, during a community meeting, the police said that they knew this was not a random killing, and I did not believe them. However, they obviously knew what they were talking about. How this all happened is as sickening as the deaths themselves. This person should have never been out roaming the streets in the first place. He drove all the way from St. Louis, Missouri, to my town. He is now in jail in another county where I used to live before I came here (you will read why).

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, Mosley was charged with murder in 2003 in Missouri, but prosecutors dismissed the case two years later.

Maybe he got away with it once (above) and thought he could get away with it again. Sad story. Glad they got him finally.

Yes, that part really made me sick. He also had drug charges against him and other warrants I think. So, he was set free to murder again, and three beautiful, elderly people. What a coward. I sometimes wish we had the death penalty, even though I have mixed feelings about the death penalty.

I don't see the purpose in killing those people other than they could identify him. I guess if they saw him though and he didn't kill them, but the girl who accused him of rape was killed, then the police would suspect him.

I don't think people like that even think. I have no idea what he would think he gained by those senseless killings, in relation to the rape case, but people like that are so unpredictable and impulsive, which is what makes them so frightening.

My heart just still aches for the victims and the family of the victims for this very senseless crime. That poor woman just wanted to take care of all the children AND her parents. Such a caretaker and GOOD person. She was found covering her father's body. Absolutely heart breaking.

It makes no sense. I agree that it is heartbreaking.

Some prison cells only have a little slit for a window. I've seen on tv where some prison cells have a door now, no bars.
