Monsters Among Us: Timothy Gonzales killed Lora Beth Williamson because she refused to have any kind sex with him

Lora Beth WilliamsonFrom Timothy Gonzales’ appeal: The body of Lora Beth Williamson was found in a Kansas cornfield on August 17, 1986. Williamson was last seen alive by witnesses the evening before at the Finney County free fair. At the fair, Gonzales and Adam Flores (“Flores”) had been spending time “checking out the scenery and checking out the women.” After Flores and Gonzales noticed Williamson, Gonzales said “he was going to try to get it,” and approached her. The two started a conversation and walked together while Flores followed behind. When they reached the parking lot, Flores stopped following them because “three’s a crowd.” The fair was ending, and that was the last Flores saw of Gonzales and Williamson that night. The next morning, Williamson’s body was found.

Flores testified that he had been in Gonzales’s car a few weeks before the murder and noticed a lock-blade knife on the console of the car. He stated that Gonzales had the same knife in a leather pouch fixed to his belt the night of the fair. The doctor who performed the autopsy testified that the victim died of knife wounds inflicted by a single-edged blade with a minimum length of two inches.

Officer Abundio Munoz (“Munoz”) was on the night shift patrol when the victim was killed. Investigating a bonfire in close proximity to where the body was found, he noticed a car traveling in the area. Officer Munoz testified that his attention was drawn to the car because it was unusual to see any traffic in the area at that time of night. He followed the car, called in the license plates, and discovered that it was registered to Ernest Campos, Gonzales’s brother-in-law. Campos testified that Gonzales had possession of the car that night because he was in the process of purchasing it.

Munoz was personally acquainted with Campos. He noticed that it was not Campos driving the car, and described the driver as a wet or sweaty Hispanic male with no shirt. Munoz did not pull the car over because the driver was neither driving erratically nor in violation of a traffic law.

Williamson had been stabbed numerous times and her throat had been cut. Though the upper portion of the body was soaked with blood, it was relatively clean from the waist down. Police found a semen stain on the victim’s leg, which was collected and sent to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (“KBI”) for analysis. The semen was examined by KBI serologist Kelly Robbins (“Robbins”), who found no sperm in the sample. Robbins noted that a complete absence of sperm was somewhat unusual, and told investigators that one explanation for this might be if the murderer and attempted rapist had a vasectomy. The fact that there was no sperm evident in the sample was not disclosed to defense counsel and was not introduced by the State at trial. Gonzales has not had a vasectomy and has a normal sperm count.

Blood, hair, and saliva samples were taken from Gonzales. Robbins testified that based on the genetic markers in the saliva and blood, Gonzales could be the donor of the semen found on the victim’s leg. Within the group of potential donors, approximately 26% of the Hispanic population would have all of the serological markers found in the sample, and 24% of the Caucasian population would have these markers.

Gonzales’s car was searched and samples were taken. The tires were removed from the car and sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“F.B.I.”) in Washington, D.C. A tire tread expert testified that the tires from Gonzales’s car matched the tracks from the crime scene in size and design, and at least one of the tires matched the wear of the tracks at the scene.

Two fibers found on the victim’s jeans matched fibers from the seat of Gonzales’s car in color and microscopic characteristics. Additionally, investigators sprayed a substance called Luminol on the interior of the car to detect traces of blood not visible to the naked eye. Though the Luminol test indicated traces of blood, the source of the blood was inconclusive.

In November 1986, the police obtained a warrant and searched Gonzales’s home. Under his bed, officers found a box containing pornographic magazines and a Garden City Telegram newspaper from August 18, 1986. The front page article was about Williamson’s murder. When interviewed by a KBI agent, Gonzales explained that he had the paper in his room because his sister used newspaper to wrap her baby’s diapers. Though Gonzales lived in the house with his sister, there were no diapers or baby supplies found in the room.

After Gonzales’s arrest, he was placed in custody in the county jail. He was held in the same cell as Jack Spears, who was incarcerated for another crime but was also under suspicion for the Williamson murder. During the investigation of Gonzales’s case, the KBI discovered that Spears had written a letter to another inmate alleging that Gonzales had confessed to killing Williamson. At trial, the letter was admitted into evidence before the State called Spears to testify and without objection by Gonzales’s defense counsel, Dennis Bahr (“Bahr”). Because Spears invoked his Fifth Amendment right and refused to testify, Bahr was unable to question him about Gonzales’s alleged confession. Spears testified at a hearing held after the trial that the letter was untrue, and that he wrote it to deflect suspicion for the crime away from himself.

A jury convicted Gonzales of one count of felony murder and one count of attempted rape. Gonzales was sentenced to life imprisonment on the felony murder charge, and, pursuant to the Habitual Criminal Act, Kan. Stat. Ann. 21-4504, ten to forty years on the attempted rape. The sentences were ordered to run consecutively. A motion to modify the sentence was denied, and Gonzales appealed.

In December 1989, the Kansas Supreme Court affirmed Gonzales’s convictions. See State v. Gonzales, 783 P.2d 1239 (Kan. 1989). In August 1992, Gonzales filed a motion for state habeas relief pursuant to Kan. Stat. Ann. 60-1507 in state district court in Kansas. In January 1994, the state district court denied him relief. In December 1994, the Kansas Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s denial of the 60-1507 motion. Gonzales v. State, No. 71,217 (Kan. Ct. App. Dec. 30, 1994) (unpublished opinion). Review was denied by the Kansas Supreme Court in March 1995.

In April 1997, Gonzales sought federal habeas relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 2254 in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. In November 1999, the district court denied Gonzales habeas relief as well as a certificate of appealability. Gonzales v. McKune, 76 F. Supp. 2d. 1222, 1229 (D. Kan. 1999). In December 1999, Gonzales filed notice of appeal seeking review by this court.

Psycho For Love: Daniel Keith Stewart killed his wife, Kathy; Sentenced to 25 years in prison

remembering the victimsFrom Daniel Stewart’s appeal: Kathy and Defendant fought frequently, and he described his marriage as “very bad.”   Defendant told others that he and Kathy had been pretending and that his marriage to Kathy was a lie.   At various times, Defendant described Kathy as cold, indifferent and cruel.   Defendant said that he wanted to leave Kathy, but he wasn’t sure how he would get along on his own because everything was in her name.

May 12, 2003 was a Monday.   That evening, Kathy and Defendant had a loud argument in the family home.   The couple argued so loudly that their children heard it from the second and third floors of the house.   Sometime during the night, Alex saw Kathy’s van leave the house with its headlights off.   Alex did not have a clock in his room, so he was unsure what time he saw the van leave.   His estimates of the time varied from as early as 10:30 p.m. to as late as 3:00 a.m. the next morning.

On Tuesday morning, Defendant went to a gas station between 6:00 and 8:00 a.m. The attendant noticed that Defendant had a black smudge on his face.   He told the attendant that he had been mowing.   Sometime after Defendant left the gas station, one of his children called to say that Kathy wasn’t around and to let Defendant know they needed a ride to school.   On the way to school, Defendant and the children stopped at a supermarket.   An employee noticed that Defendant had a black streak on the right side of his face, which hid the skin underneath it.   When the employee spoke to Defendant, she noted that Defendant seemed to be talking too fast.   Defendant told the clerk that he had been mowing that morning.

On Tuesday afternoon, Defendant filed a missing person report.   During discussions with police, however, Defendant said Kathy would often leave for days at a time without telling anyone where she was.   Defendant told police that, the last time he had seen Kathy, she was wearing her shirt and her underwear.   That same afternoon, several witnesses observed a large scratch on the right side of Defendant’s face.   Defendant gave differing explanations of how he got scratched.   In one version, Defendant said he was struck by a wire while mowing.   In a second version, Defendant said he was scratched by a limb while mowing.   In a third version, Defendant said he was scratched by a branch.   In giving these explanations, Defendant often volunteered the information without anyone having asked him how he got scratched.   Defendant stated that the scratch looked bad because Kathy was missing, and that he looked “guilty as sin.”   During an interview conducted after Kathy was reported missing, Alex stated that the scratch was present when he saw Defendant Tuesday morning before school.   Defendant claimed he did not receive the scratch until after he had taken the children to school.
Kathy and Defendant mainly drove separate vehicles.   Kathy had a van, and Defendant had a truck.   One of Kathy’s co-workers, Angela Ewing (Ewing), found Kathy’s van in a park on Tuesday evening.   Ewing drove to the Stewart home to tell Defendant that she had found the van.   Defendant refused to go with Ewing to look at the van and said he did not want to be around the vehicle.   Three of Defendant’s hairs were later found on a rug in the van.   On Wednesday morning, Ewing saw Defendant again in the school.   At that time, Ewing noticed several scratches on Defendant’s neck.

On either Wednesday or Thursday of that same week, Defendant went to a local tire shop to have a lawn mower repaired.   Several employees of the tire shop noticed that Defendant’s right hand was swollen.   Although Defendant claimed that he injured his hand while helping the employees unload the mower, there was testimony that Defendant’s hand was swollen before he touched the mower.   Defendant also had an injury to his right forearm.   He told an acquaintance that Kathy had inflicted the injury on him during their fight on Monday night.   Multiple witnesses also noticed scratches on Defendant’s neck.

Thereafter, the police took photographs of the scratches on Defendant’s face, neck, right forearm, and of the injury to Defendant’s right hand.   An officer visited the site where Defendant claimed he had hit a wire while mowing, but no wire was found.   The Stewart residence also was searched.   Inside, officers found a towel with a drop of blood on it and a drop of blood on the utility room floor.   Both drops of blood were matched to Defendant.   Additionally, officers observed a streak about as wide as a body across one of the floors in the home.   In the hallway of the house, a plate was knocked over inside a china cabinet.   The house had a strong odor of bleach.

In Defendant’s presence, Kathy’s brother said he could forgive Defendant if he had anything to do with Kathy’s disappearance or if she was killed.   Defendant did not respond to that accusation.   Throughout the investigation into Kathy’s disappearance and the ongoing search for her, Defendant did not appear to be concerned about whether any progress was being made to find his wife.   Instead, he appeared more concerned about law enforcement’s focus on his relationship with Kathy and with the questions he was being asked by police.   Defendant did not participate in any of the searches for Kathy.   Neither did he put out any missing person fliers.   At one point in the investigation, and before Kathy’s body had been found, Defendant referred to Kathy in the past tense, stating, “Why would I kill her, I loved her, I mean I love her.”   Around that same time, Defendant also said, “You know, I know something bad’s happened this time.”   When a police officer tried to reassure Defendant, Defendant responded that, “No, it’s different this time, I know something bad’s happened to her.”

On Saturday, a search party consisting of over 100 volunteers and law enforcement officers was formed to look for Kathy.   Defendant did not participate in the search.   Several members of the party found Kathy’s body by Cowskin Creek, approximately three and one-half miles away from Ava. The body was naked except for a pair of underwear on one leg.   A shirt was found several feet from the body.   One of Kathy’s fingernails was broken, but the State was unable to find any DNA under her fingernails due to the body’s decomposition.   The pathologist who performed the autopsy determined that the manner of death was homicide, and Kathy’s cause of death was listed as asphyxiation due to suffocation.

Defendant received a $15,000 death benefit from Kathy’s employer and $1,700 per month from Kathy’s retirement benefits.   He also made a claim on another $15,000 life insurance policy.

 Defendant argues that the evidence favorable to the State, coupled with all reasonable inferences which can be drawn therefrom, is insufficient to support a conviction for second-degree murder.   This Court disagrees.   Murder in the second degree is committed when a person “[k]nowingly causes the death of another person or, with the purpose of causing serious physical injury to another person, causes the death of another person[.]” § 565.021. It is irrelevant that the State’s case was largely based on circumstantial evidence.  “When reviewing for sufficiency of the evidence, circumstantial evidence is afforded the same weight as direct evidence.”  State v. Brooks, 158 S.W.3d 841, 847 (Mo.App.2005).   The relevant issue before this Court is whether a reasonable juror could find each of the elements of the charged crime beyond a reasonable doubt.  State v. Mishler, 908 S.W.2d 888, 893 (Mo.App.1995).

 Defendant’s challenge to the sufficiency of the evidence does not specifically advise this Court which element of the crime of second-degree murder has not been adequately proven.   Therefore, the point is best analyzed by resorting to the corpus delicti of the crime.   See State v. Applegate, 668 S.W.2d 624, 627-28 (Mo.App.1984).   The corpus delicti of a homicide consists of two portions:  (1) the death of a human being;  and (2) the criminal agency of another causing the death.  Id. at 628;  see State v. Williams, 897 S.W.2d 631, 634 (Mo.App.1995).   These elements cannot be met unless the State has shown that the death was not accidental, self-inflicted or due to natural causes.  Applegate, 668 S.W.2d at 628.   After these elements have been met, the State must further show the defendant’s criminal act was a cause of the victim’s death.  Williams, 897 S.W.2d at 634.

The State met its burden in proving the two elements of the corpus delicti.   Kathy’s body was recovered and identified, and a pathologist determined that her death was a homicide by strangulation.   The State also presented sufficient evidence from which a reasonable juror could find that Defendant’s criminal act was a cause of Kathy’s death.   Defendant had a loud argument with Kathy the night she disappeared.   One of the children saw Kathy’s van leaving the house without the vehicle’s headlights illuminated late Monday evening or early Tuesday morning.   After Kathy’s disappearance, Defendant had multiple scratches on his face, neck and arm and had sustained an injury to his hand.   Defendant gave varying accounts as to how he received these injuries.   For example, Defendant claimed that he injured his hand while unloading his mower, but there was testimony that the injury existed before Defendant made any attempt to unload the machine.   The jury was presented with evidence that Defendant was unhappy with his marriage, fought frequently with Kathy and had a motive for killing her.   It would have been financially difficult for Defendant to divorce Kathy since the majority of the couple’s property was in her name, and Defendant’s business was producing little or no income.   Defendant filed a missing person report on Tuesday, even though he also told police that Kathy often left for days at a time without telling anyone where she went.   Defendant also said that, when he last saw Kathy at home, she was only wearing a shirt and underwear.   The same type of clothing was found on or near Kathy’s body when it was discovered.   Defendant made a number of odd and suspicious statements to witnesses and police after Kathy disappeared.   For example, Defendant referred to Kathy in the past tense before she was found, and Defendant did not respond to a rather direct accusation that he was involved in Kathy’s disappearance.   Her body was found to have a broken fingernail.   The jurors could reasonably infer that this injury occurred while Kathy resisted an attack from Defendant and that Defendant’s scratches and hand injury were sustained while he strangled his wife.   The jury could further infer that Kathy’s van had been used to haul away her body.   Viewed in a light most favorable to the verdict, the evidence and reasonable inferences derived therefrom are sufficient to sustain Defendant’s conviction for second-degree murder.

Parents Gone Wild! Convicted sex offender and father of Josiah, Terry Patterson is charged with killing his 3-year-old son

Say NO to Child Abuse

Why did the “father” allegedly do this? Because this 3-year-old angel spit food on the couch. Patterson has admitted that he hit his son several times with a belt and his fists. Another curious thing is that he is a convicted sex offender, but he got visitation with his son, and not supervised visits. I do hope that whoever decided this will have to take responsibility for this. A 3-year-old child paid the ultimate price for this huge mistake.
