Alleged: Four Young Adults — One the Son of a Police Sergeant — Lured Two Friends to a House, Robbed and Strangled Them and then Played Video Games

January 12th, 2013

Update: Tip?

Who called this in?

Via: Joliet Patch:

Police learned about the homicides at about 4 p.m. Thursday, when they received a tip that they would find two dead bodies at the Hickory Street address. When officers arrived, they found the victims and then heard noise indicating there were other people in the house, Cmdr. Brian Benton said.

“I would say they were very much surprised (by the arrival of the police),” he said.

Police say four young adults — one the son of a Joliet police sergeant — lured two friends to a house, robbed and strangled them and then played video games until police arrived.

After attempting to dismember the bodies Thursday afternoon, the suspects “continued the party atmosphere,” Police Chief Mike Trafton said.

“This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,” Trafton said Friday. “Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.”

Adam M. Landerman, 19; Alisa R. Massaro, 18; Bethany L. McKee, 18; and Joshua F. Miner, 24, were charged about 4 p.m. Friday with six counts of first-degree murder for the Thursday deaths of Eric Glover, 22, and Terrence O. Rankins, 22, at Massaro’s house, 1121 N. Hickory St. All four are being held in lieu of $10 million bail.

Police were notified about 4 p.m. Thursday about two dead bodies at the house, and officers noticed movement inside the house so they went in, Trafton said. He said Landerman, Massaro and Miner were playing video games and were “very much surprised” when police came in. McKee had left before police arrived but was picked up by authorities in Kankakee, police said.

Autopsies performed Friday by the Will County coroner’s office determined that Glover and Rankins were strangled. Police would not say who is suspected of physically killing them.

    Found out yesterday that a friend was just busted for posession with intent to distribute heroin and crack and is under investigation for involvement in a double homicide along with her boyfriend, who was on the phone with the victims when they were killed by a third individual. She is 27 & had a decent job working at a major corporation. What the hell is wrong with people that they think nobody will come looking for them?

    This fusion of sick and surreal resonates with a strange book I read years ago; Gerry Reith’s Neutron Gun. And yet, not quite. So many of these atrocities just feel synthetic, with reasonable explanations just out of reach.

    Public massacres by the driven insane to news blips such as these – the details often don’t add up. Is it the recognition of a misplaced expression? The forced tear or an unlikely tone? That odd snapshot in time – a reputed perpetrator looking like a victim. The autonomic system transmits signals until it doesn’t. The revelation that the residents were “very much surprised” when police came in. It means something, something very wrong. But which wrong?

    Crime blotter type material has to be pretty far out for me to pay any attention at all anymore. When one person snaps… who knows…

    Four people supposedly killed the victims and then played video games?

    Man, that’s a weird one, even by Cryptogon standards.
