23 Year Old Courtney Cash, Great Nice of Legendary Country Singer Johnny Cash, Stabbed to Death in Tennessee … Wayne Masciarella Arrested & Charged With First Degree Murder
Great Niece of Johnny Cash stabbed to Death …
23 year old Courtney Cash, the great niece of the late legendary country singer Johnny Cash, has been stabbed to death at her home in Baxter, Tennessee. Courtney Cash was found stabbed to death and stuffed inside a large wooden box in her home on 8129 Rice Road on Wednesday morning. The man who lived with her, identified as William Austin Johnson, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with multiple stab wounds. Johnson was able to get out of the home with the couple’s young daughter and drive himself to a hospital in White County. The child was not hurt.
Andrews said the pair had gone out with a friend before an altercation took place in the house where Johnson and Cash lived with their young child. The friend, identified as Wayne Gary Masciarella, has been charged with first-degree murder.
Johnson escaped the attack and took the child with him before driving to the hospital, Andrews said. The scene inside the house was “somewhat bloody,” Andrews told reporters at a news conference.
“There was a struggle,” the sheriff said.
Wayne Masciarella of Cape May, NJ was arrested in Cookeville, TN and charged with first degree murder. Masciarella was booked and held without bond into the Putnam County Jail. He will have a preliminary hearing on April 21. Masciarella has been previously arrested more than 20 times in Putnam County. According to News Channel 5, Masciarella’s rap sheet includes charges for aggravated assault, possession and public intoxication.
A 27-year-old man has been charged with fatally stabbing the great niece of legendary country entertainer Johnny Cash.
Wayne Masciarella of Cape May, N.J. was charged with first-degree murder in the Wednesday death of 23-year-old Courtney Cash. He was also accused of stabbing her boyfriend, William Austin Johnson.
Putnam County Sheriff David Andrews said Masciarella had gotten into a dispute with Johnson and Cash at their Baxter home before he allegedly stabbed them both and fled. The three were believed to be friends, the sheriff said.
Tommy Cash, the brother of Johnny Cash and the grandfather of Courtney, issued a statement on the tragic event:
“We ask for your prayers for the Cash family at this time. Courtney and her boyfriend are beloved members of my family and like you we have a lot of questions and emotions that we are beginning to sort through today. We ask you to respect our privacy and appreciate all the support that the public and media has always offered me and my family, as we handle the loss of our grand-daughter. We are completely heartbroken.”
UPDATE I: According to local Sheriff David Andrews, the crime could have been a direct or indirect result of drugs.
Sheriff Andrews said he can’t comment on the murder weapon or a possible motive in the case, but he said it could be drug-related.
“This was a senseless, tragic death of a young lady whose life was probably taken as a direct or indirect result of drugs, and that’s just the world we live in. It’s just unfortunate that our people in our society lean so heavily on drugs to get through life,” Andrews said.

Tucker said the investigation is still that of a missing child rather than an abduction, but Tucker said everyone who came in contact with Myra the day she went missing is a suspect — even Myra’s mother, Erika Lewis.
Peter Lanza, the Father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza Gives First Interview: He Would have Killed Me ‘in a Heartbeat’ … “You Can’t Get Any More Evil” … “Wishes His Son Was Never Born”
Peter Lanza, the father of the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter Adam Lanza, gave his first interview since the horrendous mass murder in Newton, CT. Peter Lanza was interviewed by the New Yorker and stated, “With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance.” Peter also had a motive behind the reason why his son shot his mother multiple times; “The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me.” He would later say with regards to the mass killing of children and teachers at the school,”You can’t get any more evil.”
The father of the Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman Adam Lanza says he carries guilt about his son’s violent rampage and then says something that probably comes as one of the worst thing they can ever say as a parent, Peter Lanza “wishes his son had never been born”. I bet there are families of 26 victims from Sandy Hook that would say the same.
The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza said his son would have killed him if he’d had the opportunity.
“With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance,” Peter Lanza told New Yorker magazine in an interview that appears in the March 17 issue.
It’s the first time Peter Lanza has spoken publicly about his son.
“The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me,” he said.
The New Yorker: The Reckoning – The father of the Sandy Hook killer searches for answers. by Andrew Solomon
Peter hadn’t seen his son for two years at the time of the Sandy Hook killings, and, even with hindsight, he doesn’t think that the catastrophe could have been predicted. But he constantly thinks about what he could have done differently and wishes he had pushed harder to see Adam. “Any variation on what I did and how my relationship was had to be good, because no outcome could be worse,” he said. Another time, he said, “You can’t get any more evil,” and added, “How much do I beat up on myself about the fact that he’s my son? A lot.”
Depending on whom you ask, there were twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight victims in Newtown. It’s twenty-six if you count only those who were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School; twenty-seven if you include Nancy Lanza; twenty-eight if you judge Adam’s suicide a loss. There are twenty-six stars on the local firehouse roof. On the anniversary of the shootings, President Obama referred to “six dedicated school workers and twenty beautiful children” who had been killed, and the governor of Connecticut asked churches to ring their bells twenty-six times. Some churches in Newtown had previously commemorated the victims by ringing twenty-eight times, but a popular narrative had taken hold in which Nancy—a gun enthusiast who had taught Adam to shoot—was an accessory to the crime, rather than its victim. Emily Miller, an editor at the Washington Times, wrote, “We can’t blame lax gun-control laws, access to mental health treatment, prescription drugs or video games for Lanza’s terrible killing spree. We can point to a mother who should have been more aware of how sick her son had become and forced treatment.” (read the full story HERE)
Let us never forget the 20 precious angles that were killed that day and the six heroic adults who tried to protect them.

Minnesota High School Forces 14 Year Old Kayona Hagen-Tietz to Stand Outside in a Sopping Wet Swim Suit Because of a Fire Alarm, Gets Frost Bite
What happened to the Country I grew up in, public school edition: HAVE PUBLIC SCHOOLS COMPLETELY LOST ALL COMMON SENSE?
The brain surgeons at Como Park Senior High School in St. Paul, Minnesota forced 14 year old Kayona Hagen-Tietz to stand outside in the 5 degrees below zero weather with a windchill of 25 degrees below zero in a sopping wet swim suit because of a fire alarm. Kayona had been swimming in the school pool when a science experiment went wrong and set off the fire alarms. It is reported that school administrators would not let the female student retrieve her clothes, sit in a teachers car or wait inside another building. Guess what happened next … SHE SUFFERED FROSTBITE!!! The 14 year old girl had asked if she could wait inside an employee’s car, or at the elementary school across the street to get out of the cold; however, school administrators believed that this would violate official policy, and could get the school in trouble. So they opted to simply let the girl freeze. So basically, the school allowed 14 year old Kayona Hagen-Tietz to get frostbite so that the Como Park High School could conduct an unplanned fire drill without violating a school fraternization rule … Are these people insane!!!
A Minnesota public high school was so committed to obeying its fire drill policy to the exact letter of the law that it forced a female student–dressed only in a swimsuit, and sopping wet–to stand outside in the freezing cold for ten minutes. As a result, she suffered frostbite.
Administrators wouldn’t let the student retrieve her clothes, sit in a car or wait inside another building, according to WCCO.
The trouble began when a small science experiment triggered the fire alarm at Como Park Senior High School in St. Paul, Minnesota. Fourteen-year-old Kayona Hagen-Tietz was swimming in the school pool for health class at the time. Her clothes were in her locker, and a teacher told her that there was no time for her to change. Hagen-Tietz was rushed outside–still wet and dressed in only swimsuit.
These people are supposed to be the educators, right? I am sensing a well deserved lawsuit.
EXIT QUESTION: If it was a school policy not to go into a burning building and rescue of student from a fire, would school officials just let the student burn to death?
26 Year Old, Pregnant, St. Mary’s University Canadian Student, Loretta Saunders Missing Since 2/13/14 Has Been Found Dead in New Brunswick (Update: Blake Leggette & Victoria Lea Henneberry Previously Arrested, Now Charged with First Degree Murder)

Halifax police laid first-degree murder charges Thursday against Loretta Saunders’ two roommates, saying the Saint Mary’s University student was killed at her apartment the day she went missing.
The pregnant Saunders, 26, died at the 41 Cowie Hill Rd. apartment Feb. 13, Supt. Jim Perrin of the Halifax Regional Police-RCMP integrated criminal investigation division said at a news conference.
Saunders had gone that day to collect rent money from Blake Leggette, 25, and Victoria Lea Henneberry, 28, whom Saunders’ boyfriend called subletters rather than roommates.
Charges of first-degree murder mean that police believe the crime was premeditated. Perrin said he does not foresee further charges at this point.
Henneberry and her boyfriend Leggette are due to face the charges in Halifax provincial court this morning, regional police said late Thursday afternoon.
Where Are the Black Leaders on This … 72% of the Babies Aborted in Mississippi Are Black Between 1995 and 2010 … More Black Babies Aborted Than Born in NYC in 2012
Where is the outrage from Barack Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and other black political and religious leaders on the genocide of black babies?
As reported at CNS News, data published by the CDC, although whites far outnumbered blacks in Mississippi by a 2 to 1 margin, 71.67% of the babies aborted are black, while only 26.6% are white during the years of 1995 and 2010. The reports shows that in some years, the percentages were even higher, in 2009, for example, the percentage of black babies killed by abortion in Mississippi in relation to the total was 76.8%. In 2007, it was 77.8%; in 2005, 77.2% Protein Wisdom makes a startling but true and valid point, “It’s like ‘Mississippi Burning’, only instead of redneck Klan members (who were Democrats, let’s remember), we now have the “pro-woman” “choice” crowd pushing its agenda on a race Margaret Sanger …”.
Where is Barack Obama saying that he could have been that aborted baby as he did when he interjected himself into the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman murder trial? Where is the outrage of this genocide?
Although whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi by nearly 2-to-1, 71.67% of the babies aborted in Mississippi are black, while 26.6% are white.
Based on data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 39,052 black babies were killed by abortions in Mississippi between 1995 and 2010. During that same time period, 14,529 white babies were aborted in the Magnolia State.
The total number of abortions between 1995 and 2010 in Mississippi was 54,484. In addition to blacks and whites, that number also includes abortions among Hispanics, “Other” (meaning Asian and Native American), and “Unknown,” as published by the CDC.
The data from the CDC should make black leaders cringe, but instead they are silent. So who profits and who loses from Planned Parenthood?

But wait, it gets worse. Also reported by CNS News, more black babies were killed by abortion in New York City than born.
In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
