Girl stabs stepmom to please creepy clown ‘Laughing Jack’

Like the Slenderman case from 2014

A 12-year-old Indiana girl who fatally stabbed her stepmother said an online horror story clown named “Laughing Jack” told her to do it, according to reports.

The Elkhart girl set her family’s apartment on fire and stabbed Maria Torres “at the direction of a fictional character found on the CreepyPasta website known as ‘Laughing Jack,’” according to court documents filed Tuesday and cited by WSBT-TV.

As before: The character is fiction, but the spirit that impersonated it is not.

Triple Homicide in Kentucky

This tragedy makes no sense outside the existence of intelligent evil:

A 16-year-old boy killed in a shootout Saturday with police in Maryland prompted the search of his home over 500 miles away in Kentucky, where authorities found the bodies of his parents and younger sister.

Friends and relatives of Jason Hendrix were struggling to understand how the boy, a faithful churchgoer who was baptized just two months ago, could end up as the suspect in the slayings.

Hendrix, a Kentucky high school ROTC student and active church member, was angry at his parents for taking away his computer privileges when he’s suspected of killing his family execution-style before fleeing to Maryland, where he died in a shootout with police, the town’s police chief said Sunday.

Influence of the rulers, authorities, cosmic powers over this present darkness, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Washington mother arrested after stabbing her 3 children

The Fallen seem to love this kind of story.

Christina Booth, 28, called 9-1-1 early Sunday morning after she tried to kill her 2-year-old daughter and 6-month-old twins with a knife while her husband was home, police said. The children were bleeding from their necks when officers arrived at the couple’s home and found the children upstairs, police added.

We see something like this in the news far too often. Two, maybe three generations damaged in one fell swoop.

Evil with a sharp blade:

Police say they have charged a man with first-degree murder after he decapitated his mother on New Year’s Eve.

Florida officials said that 23-year-old Christian Gomez killed his mother with an axe on Wednesday. Officers found the body of Maria Suarez-Cassagne outside the family home in Oldsmar, Pinellas County.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said on Thursday that Mr Gomez had been upset with his mother for asking him to move some boxes and because he was jealous of the attention she paid to his brother.

Paradise Township man charged with cutting, axing wife to death – LancasterOnline

According to LancasterOnline, “A man killed his wife during an argument Christmas Eve, then took their two children to celebrate Christmas at his parents before calling police to confess.” Why would this seemingly ‘level-headed’ husband and father suddenly bash his wife’s face in and then murder her with an ax?

Human sin and spiritual wickedness. A family is destroyed, two children will be forever scarred, and a woman has lost her life. We pray the Lord will help these two children.
