Home Invasion: 2 days later on January 3rd, 2006 at 7pm Dandridge, Gray, and Baskerville entered an elderly couples home owned by the Gollsbys in Chesterfield, Virginia. They entered the house by pretending to ask for directions. Once inside they stole several items including a computer, television, DVD player, and $800 in cash.

cleaners. It is unknown if Ashley was forced into the house or thought of killing and robbing her mother and step father. Although Dandridge and Gray did say in confessions that she was willingly pretending to be bound to pretend like she was a victim also. She thought they would let her live. Then Gray said he got tired of her and decided to kill her and steal her parents car. Either way all 3 were ended up dead. Purcyell and Mary were found with their throats slashed and had plastic bags duct taped around their heads. Ashley was found with a plastic bag duct taped around her head.
  Percyell and Ashley were also found with socks stuffed into their mouths.

Captures: One day after the Baskerville-Tucker murders on January 7th, 2006. Dandridge and Gray were arrested in Philadelphia. They were arrested at Dandridges fathers house.
  Right after being arrested Dandridge confessed to the Baskerville-Tucker murders. Then 12 hours later Gray asked to talk to a detective and provided him with a 3 page long confession on how he killed the Harvey’s with a knife and a claw hammer. He then admitted to a 2005 murder of his wife Treva who was killed while Dandridge held her down.

Dandridge held Treva down while Gray beat her with a pipe. She was married to Gray whom she knew was a former convict and lived in a home that her family owned with her husband Gray and Dandridge.
  Police questioned Gray and Dandridge about Trevas death but did not consider them suspects at the time. Trevas parents said that the police did a horrible job with investigating their daughters death even going as far as to say that she died of a drug overdose. A homicide investigation was not even launched into Trevas death until Gray’s confession.
  Then a little more than a month later Sheryl Warner a 37 year old legal secretary and mother of 3 was found dead. She was found shot and hanging by an electrical cord while her house was on fire in the town of Reva, Virginia. She was on the phone with her father and left telling him that there was a motorist outside having car problems.

Gage Park Murders

On February 4th, 2016 in the Gage Park suburbs of Chicago Illinois 6 bodies were discovered in a home by police. One victim was shot and the other 5 were stabbed. The police had been called to the house for a welfare check on Noe Martinez Jr, who had not showed up for work for the last few days. The victims were Maria Martinez, her two sons Leonardo and Alexi, her parents(Noe Sr. and Rosauru), and her brother Noe Martinez Jr. The police at first thought that the incident may of been a murder suicide. They ruled that out and then thought it may of been multiple attackers as bodies were in rooms all over the house.

On February 2nd, 2016 Diego Uribe who is the nephew of Maria Martinez’s ex-husband arrived at the Martinez’s household that afternoon. Uribe’s main goal was to rob the whole family. Diego Uribe had been to the house often and was also close with Maria’s 2 sons.

What happened next apparently is that Uribe went upstairs and started to argue with Maria Martinez. He then hit her in the head four times. Noe Jr (Maria’s brother) ran upstairs after hearing gun fire. Instead of shooting Noe Jr, Uribe beat him to death with his gun. When Rosauru Martinez (Maria’s mother) came up the stairs to help, Uribe pushed her down the stairs. Then when she lay on the ground Uribe went into the kitchen and acquired some knives. He then stabbed Rosaura several times. He then forced the 2 boys to collect cash for him and grab their Xbox, and what ever other valuables they had. Uribe then led the younger boy Alexis (10) downstairs and stabbed him to death. Then he returned upstairs and stabbed the older boy to death. The older boy Leo (13) begged for his life, but Uribe didn’t care and stabbed him to death anyway. After all that killing Uribe still sat around the house and waited for Noe Sr to come home, which he did with tamales and hot chocolate. When he did Uribe stabbed and beat him to death.

Uribe along with his girlfriend Jafeth Ramos got an Xbox and $550 in cash and a bunch of jewelry they only got $150 for at the pawn shop. Although Ramos is believed to have not participated in any murders, she is still considered to be an active participant in the massacre. Uribe and Ramos had a child together and lived together. Uribe had a clean record prior to the massacre. Ramos was arrested for shoplifting a year ealier. She claimed it was for food and diapers. ?

Police did not ever believe that the killings were random and always believed that the family was specifically targeted, with Maria Martinez most likely being the primary target as she was shot rather than stabbed. On May 19, 2016, Chicago police announced that they had arrested 22-year-old Diego Uribe and his 19-year-old girlfriend, Jafeth Ramos. The best break in the case is when DNA discovered under Maria’s fingernails matched Uribe. Phone records also matched him to that vicinity at the time of the murder.

Uribe and Ramos have both confessed to the murders and are both being charged with first-degree murder and held without bail. Together the 2 are charged with 493 counts, including first-degree murder and felony murder during a residential burglary.

Flint Serial Slasher

Crime: In the spring and summer of 2010 a mad man went on a stabbing spree of random victims mainly in the city of Flint. He tended to attack at night and the men were mainly smaller framed non muscular men. At one point some said that the attacks were racially motivated but if you know the demographics of Flint the city is mainly black. Also not that safe of a city for a white man to be walking alone late at night there.

  18 stabbings total occurred which resulted in 5 deaths. The culprit would drive around late at night in his Chevy Trailblazer and approach men walking alone and ask them for directions or help fixing his vehicle. Then he would stab them in the chest or stomach. Police later on also connected crimes in Leesburg, Virginia and Toledo, Ohio to the same ones happening in Flint. Along with the crimes committed in the US the culprit is also suspected of stabbing a man in the face with a screwdriver in his home town of Ramala in Israel.

Culprit Elias Abuelazam (Born August 28th, 1976) is an Arab-Israeli born Christian. He was a large man standing 6’5 and weighing 280 lbs. He later moved to the United States where he aquired a green card but was never an American citizen. He use to work at as a mental health technician in a psychiatric facility in Leesburg, Virginia.

  Abuelazam was married for a brief period in 2004-2007 to Jessica Hirth whos family was shocked that he committed the crimes.

Capture: While living in Flint Abuelazam worked at a place called The Kingwater Market. His blazer was caught on video in an attack he committed in Virginia. Once the image of his vehicle was released to the public another employee notified police. She said that a man that worked there drove the same vehicle and matched the description and ironically enough just came back from Virginia.

  Abuelazam had left the store and the owner and workers only knew him as Eli as he was paid in cash. But with another stroke of luck an officer wrote him a ticket a few weeks before for selling alchol to minors. Then they realized he was no where to be found.
A shoelace from one of the victims Frank Kellybrew was found in Abuelazam’s SUV and murder victim Arnold Minor’s blood was found in his SUV also.

  The police were able to acquire his cell phone number and pinged him to a tower near the Louisville, Kentucky airport. When they called the airport they found out he was going to Atlanta and then boarding a plane to Tel Aviv, Israel. Right before he could board the plane he was apprahended at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International airport.

Previous Arrests: In August 5th of 2010 he was arrested in Arlington, Virginia for a traffic violation and had a warrant for his arrest on an assault charge. Then was released shortly after. Federal authorities have not yet responded to his complaint.

Incarceration: Abuelazam was only charged with 3 counts of murder and 6 counts of attempted murder. He is currently housed in Genesee County Jail in solitary confinment. Locked up for 23 hours a day.

Lawsuit for deportation:  Abuelazam filed a lawsuit against the federal government asking to be deported back to his native Israel to stand trial for attempted murder there he did back in 2009. The law suit claims that Abuelazam be deported back to his native Israel so he can be convicted of attempted murder.
