Bradley Martin & Carolyn King

Bradley Martin (21) met Carolyn King(27), a married mother of 4, when he was working for a prison release program at a Candy Factory they both worked at. The 2 even had Conjugal visits. He was in prison for a parole violation. One day he went out on work release but never returned back to prison.

Guy Goodman

On September 25, 1993, police made a welfare check at the Lebanon County, Pennsylvania home of Guy Goodman, 74, a community-minded retired florist who’d not been seen in several days. Inside it smelt instantly of death. There was blood and pieces of broken glass all over the floor. In the basement the police discovered the decomposing body of Goodman. He had been strangled with extension cords and had a plastic bag tied around his head. He had been dead for over a week. There was no signs of a break in and 3 empty coffee cups on the kitchen table appearing like he had guests. His credit card and vehicle were missing. When police dusted the place for prints. A print of 21 year old Bradley Martin came up.

The police put out an APB for Martin and King not knowing if King had been kidnapped by Martin or left her family on her own will. When police questioned her husband he says he hadn’t spoke to his wife in weeks. Police also later found out that there was a connection between Martin and Goodman as Goodman mentored Martin in a program for troubled youth.

On September 27th, 1993 the police had found out that Goodman’s credit card was used in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and most recently South Dakota. The last point they found it used in was a hotel in Bismarck, North Dakota. At that place another person a tourist bus company worker named Donna Martz (59) went missing. When police found Goodman’s car abandoned authorities figured they were now using Donna Martz’s car.

On October 5th, 1993 A California Highway Patrol officer spotted a vehicle matching the description of Martz’s car outside of San Diego. When the officer got close enough to the vehicle he identified the people in the car as King and Martin. The chase ended when the car got into a little accident and the two were arrested. There was no sign of Donna Martz and neither of the suspects were talking. Later to save her own ass King of course claimed that she stayed with Martin as she feared for her life. Martin agreed with her and went along with her story. But police doubted she was unwilling as security footage showed her using the cards and checks by herself with plenty of time to escape or tell someone.

Eventually, Martin and King cooperated with police and drew a map of where Martz was shot. Her body was recovered and brought home to her family. What Martin and King did was lock Martz in her trunk while alive, then went shopping with her credit cards in Elko, Nevada, then drove her to the middle of the desert and shot her in the head.

Martin and King were both charged with kidnapping and two counts of first degree murder. They were brought back to Pennsylvania and awaited trial. On October 11, 1994 they were each found guilty and sentenced to death. Martin and King were later resentenced to life without parole.

Brown’s Chicken Massacre

Crime: The Brown’s Chicken Massacre was a sensless mass murder that occured in Palatine, Illinois (Chicago suburb) on January 8th, 1993. It went unsolved for almost 9 years until one of the cowards girlfriends came forward to police about information on the crime.
  2 men entered the restaurant and ate right before closing time and then robbed the store (stealing less than $2,000) and killed 7 employees. Shooting 6 and then stabbing 1. More than 2 dozen shots were fired at the employees. They had to empty their weapons and reload a couple of times.

James Degorski

Juan A Luna Jr. (Born February 16th, 1974): Luna was spared the death penalty due to one juror who held out. Which is total bullshit he should be shot in the back of the head (which  would be an easier punishment). Him and his acomplice James Degorski were high school classmates at Palatine’s William Fremd High School. Luna was actually a former employee at Brown’s Chicken.

James Degorski: Degorski a former handyman (whose former girlfriend turned them in) Was found guilty of all 7 count of murder on September 29th, 2009. There has also been alot of anger with some of the victims families as Degorski recently recieved punitive damages amounting to $451,000 for having a deputy kick his ass. But it is still unclear if Degorski will ever see any of the money.

The Capture: In March of 2002 James Degorski’s fomer girlfriend Anne Lockett came forward and told police about the horrific crime the sick fucks committed in 1993 A piece f chicken from the restaurant that was kept from the garbage can the night of the murders as evidence had Luna’s DNA on it.
Although Luna along with Degorski were taken into custody for the crime on May of 2002 Luna immediately admitted to it. Then lawyers later claimed he only admitted to it for fears of deportation.

  When the police arrived at the restaurant over 5 hours after the murders they discovered the rear door open. They found 7 bodies in a cooler and walk in refrigerator.
