'Friends' torture, kill disabled woman

No horror writer could even write much less imagine the following:

A mentally disabled woman was fed vegetable oil, spices, detergent, urine and medications, then forced to write a suicide note, stabbed to death, wrapped in plastic, put in a garbage can and dumped in a school parking lot …

Her head had been shaved, and she had been bound with Christmas decorations and clothing; she also was hit with a towel rack, vacuum cleaner hose and a crutch

Sadly this is not fiction. Five adults and one youth are all charged with criminal homicide and kidnapping, and being held without bond in the Westmoreland County, PA prison.

Jennifer Daugherty had become involved in a community center in Greensburg, PA where she met several people whose names she had mentioned to her family as ‘friends’ - including several whose first names share those of some of the suspects.

Jennifer Daugherty rest in peace.

  1. so sad; hope they all get the death penalty.


  2. Your right this was more horrifying than any horror I've ever read. These people are monsters wearing the skin of humanity. I can't even respond, this was so senseless and inhumane. To think this kind soul knew this kind of cruelty in her last hours...I hope they pay dearly for their actions. (Hugs)Indigo
