12/20/2013 Jamaica’s assistant police commissioner Derrick Knight said Saturday that detectives have seized two vehicles in connection with the double homicides. They have also identified someone whom they believe knows something about the crimes and have urged him to turn himself in. 19-year-old Franciena Johnson of Brooklyn and her 18-year-old cousin Nadia Fearon were shot and killed while visiting relatives in Jamaica, just one day after they arrived. Johnson’s heartbroken mother never imagined it might be the last time she would see her child when she sent her off for winter break to stay with her grandmother. But now Suzette Clarke-Grose, of Canarsie, is dealing with unimaginable pain. After Franciena and Nadia vanished, police found their bodies far from the resort areas, floating in a salt marsh near May Pen on the country’s south coast. Then Franciena’s grandmother made the terrible phone call. “She said, ‘Brace yourself, because your daughter is dead,’” Clarke-Grose said through tears. “I asked what happened, and she don’t know, she just never came home Friday night. She and Nadia left the house to go to May Pen, and she didn’t return home.” Police tell the family they are putting together bits and pieces of evidence to help find the killer. Someone heard gunshots, which led them to the bodies. “I was told it appears they kidnapped them in a car, and the area where they took them was very lonely,” Clarke-Grose said. “Nobody really knows what happened. They only know that they found them with gunshot wounds to the body.” Clarke-Grose spoke to Eyewitness News while sorting through hundreds of pictures of her photogenic daughter, who was studying to be a nurse at Kingsboro College. She was born in Jamaica and moved to the US as a child, and her mother can’t understand why anyone would hurt her.
12/15/2013 Heartbroken friends and family gathered in Manhattan Thursday morning to bid a final farewell to a 3-year-old boy who was thrown to his death off an Upper West Side high-rise by his father. Officials believe a bitter custody battle drove Kirill’s father, 35-year-old Dmitriy Kanarikov, to toss the boy from the top of the 52nd-story apartment building before jumping to his own death. Kirill’s mother, Svetlana Kanarikov, said in a statement that she had been nervous about her son’s visits with his father, and she initially wanted them to be supervised. But she relented after a December 5 court appearance. “The father never did anything violent against the child before,” Kanarikov said of the two previous visits in a statement issued Monday night through a lawyer. “Both times, Kirill was happy after seeing his dad. Skype calls were also going well.” He had picked up Kirill at 10 a.m. Sunday at a Manhattan police precinct – a neutral site negotiated in advance by the parents – to spend time with him for the first time unsupervised. The couple had been married four years and separated in August, and Svetlana Kanarikov said she had taken action after a domestic violence incident. Their split was acrimonious. She left their Brooklyn apartment and moved in with her family in Fair Lawn, N.J., enrolling her son in school. In addition to Kirill, Dmitriy Kanarikov had wanted their house and other property, too, Svetlana Kanarikov said. “He said he would take the child away and I will ‘shoot myself from grief,’” she said. “This was his sick way to take Kirill away from me.” Officers responding to an emergency call reporting two jumpers from the building near Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center found Kanarikov and the boy on the lower rooftops of two separate nearby buildings. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and Kirill was pronounced dead at a hospital, police said. A witness said the boy was wearing Christmas pajamas. “Kirill was a very sweet, wonderful child, who was loved very much,” his mother said. “He will forever live on in my heart.”

01/13/2014 Religious violence in the Central African Republic has reached a new extreme with an act of cannibalism in the capital, Bangui. The BBC’s Paul Wood has heard a graphic first-person account, which some might find upsetting. The buses throwing up clouds of red clay dust had yet to rub out the ugly bloodstain in the dirt. A Muslim man had been murdered here a few days ago, by Christians. His limbs were hacked off. Then one of the crowd ate the flesh in a public demonstration of cannibalism. We were filming nearby when a young man in a yellow T-shirt came up to talk to me. “I am the naughty one,” he said in broken French. Puzzled, I shook his hand and was trying to ease past him when I noticed the machete tucked into his skinny jeans. “I am the naughty one,” he repeated. Start Quote I ate his leg, the whole thing right down to the bone – with bread. That’s why people call me Mad Dog.” Ouandja Magloire Camera phones had captured the crime. The pictures show a charred and dismembered body being dragged through the street by a screaming mob. A man held a severed leg and bit down into it. The same, slightly built figure was standing in front of me. He was even wearing the same yellow T-shirt as in the video. A few minutes earlier, I had spoken to a horrified witness, Ghislein Nzoto. He said it began when the Muslim man was dragged from a bus. “People started attacking him, kicking him. They smashed a rock against his head. They kept going even after he was dead.” He went on: “They set the body on fire. There were about 20 youths. They cut a whole leg off. Then one of them started to eat it. He bit into it four times and swallowed. It was raw, not burned. “This was right in front of the Burundian peacekeepers. One of the soldiers vomited. Then he chased people away with his gun. “I swore revenge’ The cannibal’s name was Ouandja Magloire – though he told me he was now known as “Mad Dog”. There was a busy market either side of the street, people hawking brightly coloured cloth, skin-whitening creams, and piles of fresh loaves.

01/30/2014 Police in eastern India have arrested the husband and parents-in-law of a young woman for allegedly burning her and her baby girl alive. The primary motive behind January 30 the attack is suspected to be dowry-related, as alleged by the parents of the dead woman, Jharkhand state police superintendent N.K. Mishra said. The three suspects poured kerosene on Annu Devi, 22, and the baby girl at their village home in the state’s Dumka district and set them on fire, Mishra said. The 1-year-old child died instantly, and the mother later succumbed to her injuries in a hospital, police said. A court has sent the three suspects to jail to await trial, Mishra told CNN.

Her family has said in their complaint she was harassed for money and other things.” Devi married three years ago, Mishra said. Dowry is banned in India, but giving expensive “gifts” to the grooms and their relatives at weddings hosted by the brides’ families remains a common practice in the country. Police across India registered 8,233 murders of women as dowry deaths in 2012, according to national crime data.

This list names the 154 women killed in 2003 and gives brief accounts of their deaths. We learn of these women from a combination of records including Texas Department of Public Safety data, media reports and law enforcement records. There are undoubtedly other victims of domestic homicide who remain uncounted. The list below reflects the most accurate information available to TCFV researchers at the time of compilation. We also update our records annually, or as media coverage alerts us to developments. Unknown victims are those unnamed women whose deaths are noted in law enforcement records, often without details such as hometown, age or date of death. TCFV uses media reports to match the incident data with names for most of these victims; however, if there is no media coverage, a name often cannot be discovered.

07/16/2010 DeFarra Gaymon was shot to death in Newark’s Branch Brook Park on July 16, 2010.The killing occurred in Newark’s Branch Brook Park on July 16, 2010. In 2011, an Essex County grand jury declined to indict Esposito on any criminal charges. The Gaymon family sued Esposito, the county, the sheriff’s office, and two senior officers in that office in 2011. The amended complaint names additional sheriff’s officers. In a 2011 statement, the Essex County prosecutor’s office said the chase led to the pond, with Gaymon repeatedly threatening Esposito, and that Gaymon “then lunged at and attempted to disarm the officer while reaching into his own pocket. Fearing for his life, the officer discharged his service weapon, hitting Mr. Gaymon once.” Esposito and his partner were in plainclothes and conducting a public sex sting. Just prior to the shooting, they fought with another man and Esposito lost his handcuffs. After that first man was secured, Esposito went back into the park to retrieve his handcuffs when he encountered Gaymon, who was “who was engaged in a sex act at the time,” according to the prosecutor’s statement. Esposito is the sole witness to the killing. In 2009, Esposito was involved in three public sex arrests that also turned violent. Resisting arrest was charged in another two Esposito arrests that year. Gaymon was the head of an Atlanta credit union and was in Newark to attend his high school reunion. He was married with four children. These new facts make the circumstances of the killing murkier. None of the parties in the lawsuit responded to emails seeking an explanation or comment. The prosecutor’s office referred questions to the attorney representing the county.
