Media Hiding Horrific Homicide In Alabama

Five people, including a pregnant woman, were killed in Alabama and authorities have charged 27-year-old Derrick Dearman with their murders.

“In a 20-year career as a prosecutor, I have never seen a scene where there were five people brutally and viciously murdered. That’s what we have here,” Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich said, according to Mad World News.

The Mississippi man said he was in love with estranged girlfriend Laneta Lester and that drugs drove him to slaughter her family and abduct Lester and their child. Dearman said he was on crystal meth when he went on a killing spree at the rural home, according to AL.com.

Dearman murdered three men and two women, one who was pregnant.

"They were really good people. They'd call and check on you, ask if you want to come down and eat," said Madison McDaniel, 17, a relative of the family.

Dearman expressed remorse and said that he didn’t deserve to live, and urged others not to do drugs.

"Drugs (were) making me think things that's not really there," he said.

Dearman’s former landlord said he suspected Dearman of buying and/or selling drugs and of being physically abusive to Lester. Dearman was charged with six counts of capital murdering, which includes a count for the unborn child.
