Horrifying saga of multiple predators, sexually abused children and murder

After all these years of running Lovefraud, at times I am still shocked by some people’s level of depravity.

Sara Packer, of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, worked as an adoption supervisor and, along with her husband, David Packer, fostered 30 children.

In 2004, Sara and David Packer adopted Grace Packer and her brother when Grace was three years old. David Packer was later convicted of sexually abusing Grace and a learning-disabled foster child. He went to prison.

Sara Packer took up with a new boyfriend Jacob Sullivan.

Grace Packer disappeared in July 2016. She was 14 years old.

Now authorities say Sullivan beat, raped and murdered Grace, while Sara Packer watched.

There’s more. This story is unbelievable.

Kelly Cochran, of Caspian, Michigan, began an affair with a co-worker, Chris Regan. But when Kelly’s husband, Jason Cochran, found out, he was furious, and threatened to kill Regan.

Instead, the Cochrans allegedly hatched a plot to kill Regan together. Then they dismembered his body.

But Kelly Cochran was angry, and 16 months later, she allegedly killed her husband, making the death look like a heroin overdose.

Kelly told a police detective that she wouldn’t lose sleep over her husband’s death. “You feel (emotion),” she said, according to DetroitNews.com, “and I can’t.”

Rafael Robb was convicted of murdering his wife (AP).

Rafael Robb was convicted of murdering his wife (AP).

Ten years ago, on Dec. 22, 2006, Rafael Robb, of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, bludgeoned his wife, Ellen Gregory Robb, to death as she wrapped Christmas presents. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Robb, a former University of Pennsylvania economics professor and an expert in game theory, was supposed to be released in January. A civil suit awarded $124.26 million to the couple’s daughter, who was 12 when her mother was killed.

Robb listed assets of approximately $3 million in the civil lawsuit. This week, Robb petitioned the court for $100,000 of his  assets to set up a new life after prison. But in a hearing, he mentioned an account in France, which he had not disclosed during the civil suit.

The Montgomery County District Attorney may consider perjury charges against Robb.

Prosecutors in Orange County, California, started calling him “Jaws” because he was such a vicious predator. Last week, Steven Dean Gordon, 47, was convicted of abducting and killing four random women in Santa Ana, between 2013 and 2014.

Gordon was already a convicted sex offender. His partner in crime, Franc Cano, was also a sex offender. Cano will be tried separately.

Both men were under supervision after being convicted in separate cases of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14.

Both men were wearing GPS tracking devices. In fact, it was the data from the tracking devices that connected them to the disappearances of the four women, who were all prostitutes.

After their arrests, prosecutors found their text messages to each other about killing the fourth victim, Jarrae Estepp. Gordon didn’t want to do it, but Cano said it was his turn.

To better protect victims, UK strengthens stalking laws

Jealous Woman Stalking Couple Of LoversFour years ago, a new stalking law enabled prosecutors in England and Wales to charge offenders with stalking, even when their behavior falls short of creating a fear of violence in the victim. The idea was to stop stalking behavior, especially in domestic violence cases, before it escalated.

Authorities have announced new orders that extends the law so that it protects people who are being stalked by strangers.

Police can apply to the courts for orders to make stalkers stay away from their victims, before the stalker has been convicted, or even arrested.

This is perhaps the most brazen con artist story I’ve seen in awhile. Marcus Elliot, 26, of Lincolnshire, England, leased shipping containers, promising to pay the monthly rental, and then sold them on eBay.

He scammed a total of £250,000, fled to South America with a hooker, and blew the money on expensive cigars, a Playboy membership, and a speedboat — which he crashed.

He was convicted and sentenced to almost four years in prison.

It’s like a bad movie script — except that the people he scammed got hurt.

Student fights for a year to bring the man who raped her to justice

Daniel Drill-Mellum

Daniel Drill-Mellum pleaded guilty to rape.

Right off the bat, something about Daniel Drill-Mellum didn’t feel right.

Two years ago, when Abby Honold was a 19-year-old student at the University of Minesota, she met Drill-Mellum, 22, at a party. He asked her to help him get more alcohol at his apartment across the street, and she didn’t feel safe. But she went anyway.

The man raped her. Then, two of his fraternity brothers tricked her into saying the sex was consensual while they recorded the call.

Her claims weren’t taken seriously — until the case was reopened by a University of Minnesota police officer. Eventually, more victims of the same man came forward, and Drill-Mellum pleaded guilty.
