TEEN IN US ILLEGALLY DECAPITATES HIS MOTHER …
18 year old Oliver Mauricio Funes Machada is being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge after Franklin County deputies say he decapitated his mother at their home on Morgan Drive near Stonehill Drive in Franklin County, North Carolina. Deputies said they found 35-year-old Yesenia Funez Beatriz Machado dead inside the home, two young girls found in the home were unharmed and a fourth child was at school when the incident happened. According to accounts, the first deputy on scene “observed a male exit the house carrying a knife in one hand and a severed human head in the other.” As per court documents, Machada took four different medications for psychosis and schizophrenia.
It also appears that the Honduran national was living in the United States illegally.
The Franklin County District Attorney said Tuesday that 18-year-old Oliver Mauricio Funes Machada will be moved to Central Prison because it’s “more appropriate for any special needs he may have.”
Machada is being held without bond on a first-degree murder charge after deputies say he decapitated his mother at their home on Morgan Drive near Stonehill Drive just south of U.S. Highway 64 Monday afternoon. The area is east of Zebulon – near the Wake County line.
At a a preliminary hearing Tuesday, both the prosecution and defense said they expect mental health to be an issue in the case. According to court documents, Machada took four different medications for psychosis and schizophrenia.
Federal officials also said Tuesday that Machada is in the country illegally and they’ve issued an immigration detainer for him.
“ICE is focused on identifying, arresting and removing public safety threats, such as convicted criminal aliens and gang members, as well as individuals who have violated our nation’s immigration laws,” a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson told ABC11.
As per WNCN, the Zebulon 18-year-old accused of beheading his mother Monday afternoon told dispatchers he had killed her “because I felt like it,” according to an investigator’s sworn statement.
The investigator made the statement as he sought a search warrant to go through the Morgan Drive home where the 35-year-old mother was killed.
Oliver Mauricio Funes-Machado also told a dispatcher that “he stabbed her ‘like 8 times’ and left the knife in her mouth,” according to the sworn statement by Det. A.R. Roberts of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office
A DEATH SENTENCE WELL DESERVED!!!
Dylann Roof has been sentenced to death in connection with the murder of 9 individuals in the 2015 shooting massacre at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Roof was convicted last month of 33 counts of federal hate crimes. It was the same jury that found him guilty on all counts last month that deliberated Tuesday. In just under three hours the jury came back with their decision … death penalty!
Twelve federal jurors said Tuesday that Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine people in a 2015 massacre at a historically black Charleston, South Carolina, church, should be put to death.
The 10 women and two men recommended the death penalty for all 18 counts that carried that as a possible sentence.
Roof will become the first federal hate crime defendant to be sentenced to death, a Justice Department spokesman said.
Judge Richard Gergel will formally sentence Roof on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. ET. Roof, who represented himself during the penalty phase, told Gergel he wanted to file a motion for new lawyers. Gergel said Roof can argue that on Wednesday but he is not inclined to let that happen.
A group of defense attorneys and others who worked on Roof’s behalf issued a statement, saying the death penalty decision means the case will not be over for a “very long time.”
“We are sorry that, despite our best efforts, the legal proceedings have shed so little light on the reasons for this tragedy,” the statement said.
“I think it’s safe to say nobody in their mind wants to go into a church and kill people,” he began. Then he contradicted other confession statements in which he said he had to do what he did. “In my [FBI confession] tape, I told them I had to do it. .?.?. Obviously that’s not true. Nobody made me do it. What I meant when I said that was I felt like I had to do it, and I still feel like I had to do it.”
FBI Says … Fort Lauderdale Airport Suspect Esteban Santiago ‘Came Here Specifically’ to Attack (VIDEO)
NOTE TO FBI … THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER SERVED IF YOU HAD TOLD ALL OF THIS BEFORE THE SUSPECT GOT ON THE PLANE.
According to the FBI, the suspect in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport shootings that left 5 people dead and many more injured came to Florida specifically to attack. How do they know this, the suspect reportedly told them during the investigation. However, this is not the first time that the suspect and the FBI have crossed paths. The FBI still is not saying whether this was terror related. Hmm, even though they say the motive is unclear or whether this may or may not be terror related, doesn’t the FBI usually error on the side of it was not terror? Not in this case as the FBI has egg on their face and a lot of explaining to do.
Esteban Santiago went to baggage claim and picked up his one piece of checked luggage.
There were no other bags, just a case with a handgun inside.
Santiago allegedly took the 9 mm handgun out of its case and fired at other travelers Friday afternoon, killing five people at the Fort Lauderdale airport. On Saturday, authorities revised the number of wounded to six after earlier saying eight.
A few months earlier he reportedly had a mental evaluation after a bizarre visit to an FBI office in Alaska.
Friday’s shooting sent the airport terminal into chaos, with people running for cover. They started running again when rumors of more gunshots and a possible second shooter spread through the busy airport. Almost 40 others would get hurt in the rushed evacuation after the attack. Some suffered sprains and bruises; others had broken bones.

Dylann Roof Found Guilty on All Counts in the Emanuel AME Church Massacre Trial in Charleston, South Carolina
GUILTY AS SIN!!!
Dylann Roof has been found guilty on all 33 counts in his trial in connection with the Mother Emanuel church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina that left 9 black parishioners dead. It took a 12-person panel a little over two hours to convict Roof on all 33 counts, including two dozen that fall under federal hate crime statutes. The jury will break for Christmas and return after the holidays on January 3, 2017 to begin debating whether the 22-year-old mass killer spends the rest of his life in prison, or is given the death penalty.
After nearly a week of painful testimony that vividly re-created the massacre at this city’s famed Mother Emanuel church, it took jurors about two hours Thursday to convict Dylann Roof in his federal hate crimes trial.
Roof was charged with 33 counts in his federal indictment. He was found guilty on every single one. Family members of the nine parishioners gunned down last year nodded silently as each charge was read aloud. Some held hands, their eyes shut tightly, as each guilty verdict was announced in the courtroom just a mile from the church.
With Roof’s guilt effectively unquestioned, this verdict was seen as likely, and the trial largely hinged on what happens next. Mirroring what happened during the Boston Marathon bombing trial last year — the last case that saw the Justice Department obtain a rare federal death sentence — there was no real question about guilt. Prosecutors played video footage of Roof admitting his guilt to FBI agents, and Roof’s attorneys did not argue that he was innocent.
Instead, the larger question surrounding the trial has focused on the next portion of the case, which will deal with whether Roof is sentenced to death or life in prison.
