I think these people need to be put down.

Clearly there is something fundamentally wrong here.

What's terrifying is that Joliet is just the next town over from where I live.

This was all over the news here in Chicago when it happened.  The police chief's son being involved was the big thing.

I just can't grasp how people's minds can work in this way.

Thankfully, the overwhelming majority of people on this planet feel the same way.

I must be living in a cave.  I live about 1 1/2 to 2 hours south of there and I don't remember hearing about this.

Hey, when you were young wouldn't you have planned a robbery for some drugs and maybe $100, only you really wanted to kill them and then have three way sex over their zombiefied bodies?

Talk about dirty and smelly sex.......... icon_eek

Reading the description (where the bodies released bowels, etc) is just ... :_shudder_:

It makes horror flicks a little more real, because crap like this should NEVER happen.

EVER.

Eughh. All of the people with the exception of the victims look like they were scraped from the bottom of the humanity barrel too.

These are the same people that think setting a pet on fire is "hilarious".  Every generation looks at the one coming up and wonders if they were this bad...but I'm sure of this as I am anything else in my life - the generations coming after mine are a thing of horror.  I'm sure that doesn't apply to all of them, but this sort of thing just didn't seem to happen as often 20 years ago, did it?

There was no internet to spread these stories 20 years ago. I can tell you that this wasn't covered on NBC news that airs in the evening, so I wouldn't have heard of it.

I initially read that as "I didn't make national headlines 20 years ago" which put a WHOLE different spin on your reply.  Thank god I was wrong!

Yes, things like this happened.  In fact, one of the various "Crimes of the Century" was the Leopold and Loeb case where two teens just decided to kill some people because they figured they could get away with it, and it would be an interesting mental challenge.  IIRC, there was some deviance involved, though that may have been the "shocking" inference that the boys may have been homosexuals.

With the 24 hour news cycle, there is a need to fill it and get viewers.  Consequently, if something seems to catch, they will both milk it to death and report on similar stories.  This is why, when a kid falls down a well, there seem to be a rash of kids falling down wells.

In the old days, things were on the news and you might get a follow up story (or in the paper, depending on how far back you want to go).  Or you'd hear second hand stories, and they spiral and grow over time, but they get told like they just happened and are much worse (this actually still happens, obviously).  This is why, every Halloween, parents methodically go through their kids' candy for razor blades or poison, fearing that some stranger has done something horrible, despite the fact that the only real reported case of anything like this happened in the 70s when a father replaced his own kid's Pixie Stick with Drano and then slipped a couple more into other bags to throw off suspicion.
