Rodrick Shonte Dantzler

Rodney Shonte Dantzler (b-March th, 1977) was a “building technician” from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He was a heavy drinker and a cocaine addict which is strange for a guy who claimed to be a fitness freak. He was also bi-polar. Dantzler’s mother booted him out of her house when he was 18 and filed a protection order against him. But she wasn’t the only person that had a protection order against him. Three other women had filed orders against him for threating to harm them. Dantzler was convicted of domestic violence in 1977 Then in 2000 he was in a road rage incident where he shot someone. He was sentenced to 3-10 years in prison. He was released in 2005. He also got a year stint in 2010 for assault and battery.

On July 7th, 2011 Rodney Shonte Dantzler entered his ex girlfriends home on Plainfield Avenue NE in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a Glock 9. While inside he shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, her sister, and her sisters 10 year old daughter. Then he entered the home of his estranged wife’s parents on Bryant Cres. in Grand Rapids. He shot and killed his estranged wife, his daughter, and her parents. In a total killing 7, just days after he took his estranged wife and daughter to Muskegon’s Michigan’s Adventure.

The police found out about the shootings at about 2:30pm, then about half an hour later Dantzler shot and wounded a man in a road rage incident.

From World’s Wildest Police Chases This Case Made The Show.

At about 7 pm that night police received a call from a female friend of Dantzler’s. She told them that he was following her car and shooting at her vehicle. The police persued him and he eventually stopped after police rammed his vehicle in downtown Grand Rapids. After exchanging gun fire with the police Dantzler barricaded himself in a residential home with three hostage who were unknown to him. He negotiated with cops. The police even gave him Gatorade and cigarettes.

By 11:30 at night Dantzler released all the hostages and then took his own life by shooting himself in the head. Thats what it has said in most reports I have read then you see the video and claims he killed himself right there. Probably didn’t want to make the cops bad as he got to escape to a house.

Shooting Time Line

Shelly Andre Brooks

Shelly Andre Brooks (b-January 22, 1969) spent the last 10 free years of his life homeless on the streets or sleeping in his cousins basement.

Between August of 2001 and June 5th, 2006 7 bodies of women are discovered in the Detroit east side. All were black prostitutes, ranged in age from 30-53, with a history of drug abuse, and attacked with rocks, bricks, and table legs. All of the victims were found in abandoned buildings or vacant fields. He left all the victims in a spread eagle position.

Then in July of 2006 a 45 year old prostitute was violently attacked and left to die. But she survived. When she came threw she gave the police a description which matched that of Shelly Brooks plus she identified him as her attacker and he was tall and went by the name “E”. When his DNA was tested it matched to the 7 unsolved murdered women. When Brooks was confronted with the DNA evidence he confessed.

He is in jail for life. Sadly Michigan has no death penalty..

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.
