Monsters Among Us: David Kevin Hocker killed his boss, Jerry Wayne Robinson to get money for crack; Executed 9/30/2004

remembering the victimsFrom Hocker’s appeal: The victim, Jerry Wayne Robinson, owned a small business in Houston County, Alabama.   The Defendant David Kevin Hocker worked for Mr. Robinson.   They were together on March 21, 1998 and were seen by the victim’s wife at West Building Supply in Dothan, Alabama. That would be the last time she saw her husband alive.   The next time she saw him was at the funeral home when she identified his body.

“Sergeant Donald Valenza of the Houston County Sheriff’s Department received a call from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department informing him that Mobile had the Defendant Hocker in custody.   He had confessed to Mobile authorities that he had murdered Jerry Robinson.   Sergeant Valenza went to Mobile and took a statement from Hocker at which time Hocker admitted to killing Jerry Robinson by stating that he had broken a knife off in his chest.   Sergeant Valenza transported Hocker back to Houston County, Alabama, and made arrangements with the Headland Police Department to locate the body.   Hocker took the officers to the body which was located in Henry County, Alabama.   The body contained a single stab wound to the chest with the ․ blade imbedded in Jerry Robinson’s chest.   There were numerous cuts, abrasions and other injuries.

“Upon further investigation and the Defendant’s statement it was learned that Jerry Robinson and Hocker had gone to West Building Supply to purchase materials to build a fence.   Hocker later dumped the building materials in a ditch.   He had intended to kill Jerry Robinson at his office but a co-owner was present.   By ruse, Hocker talked Jerry Robinson into going with him to Henry County to pick up a microwave oven.   While in the truck Hocker stabbed Jerry Robinson in the chest, drove to a remote area and dragged Jerry Robinson from the vehicle.   Hocker then proceeded to beat and stomp Jerry Robinson causing over thirty contusions, scrapes and cuts.   Jerry Robinson’s Adam’s apple was broken.   There was a fracture of the thyroid cartilage.   According to the forensic pathologist, Dr. Parades, Jerry Robinson remained alive during this vicious beating and was able to feel pain.   However, the stab wound to the chest was the lethal wound.

“Hocker stole Jerry Robinson’s green truck, ATM card and cash.   After several withdrawals through the victim’s ATM card Hocker purchased $400.00 in crack cocaine and then drove to Mobile, Alabama. While on crack he believed the police were chasing him and he abandoned the truck and ran through the woods causing numerous scratches to his face.   Hocker later rented a motel room in Mobile and called 911 to turn himself in.   He subsequently gave statements to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department and Sergeant Valenza confessing to the crime.

“In his statements Hocker claimed that the victim made sexual advances towards him which caused him to stab the victim.   However, three witnesses testified that Jerry Robinson was not homosexual.   He was a married man with two children.”

Monsters Among Us: Anthony Carcione beat 78-year-old Jean Schwarzkopf to death; Sentenced to LWOP

Jean SchwarzkopfFrom Anthony Carcione’s appeal: The facts giving rise to this matter arose out of the home invasion, robbery, and murder of a wealthy 78 year old woman, Jean Schwarzkopf, who resided in New Port Richey, Florida.   In late 1996 or early 1997, Ottavio Volpe made the acquaintance of Mrs. Schwarzkopf, who resided in a subdivision located near a bakery that he owned.   Realizing her wealth, he formulated a plan to rob Mrs. Schwarzkopf of her jewelry.   At first, although Volpe was aided by a local co-conspirator, the plan failed.   Volpe then decided to enlist the assistance of friends and acquaintances in Chicago to complete the robbery.

In August 1997, Volpe contacted Camillo Gigliotti in Chicago, and attempted to persuade him to come to Florida to rob Mrs. Schwarzkopf.   Gigliotti refused to do so personally, but proceeded to contact Faris Rafidi, a Chicago restauranteur, to inquire who might be willing to travel to Florida to accomplish the robbery.   Rafidi suggested to Gigliotti that he contact Appellant.

On September 18, 1997, Appellant flew from Chicago to Tampa.   Volpe picked him up, and they drove to Volpe’s bakery in New Port Richey.   The next morning, after buying flowers, gloves, and duct tape, Appellant approached Mrs. Schwarzkopf’s door posing as a flower delivery man.   After the door was opened, Appellant forced himself into Mrs. Schwarzkopf’s home, and hit her in the face.   Throughout the ordeal, Appellant broke Mrs. Schwarzkopf’s nose, fractured her cheekbone, neck and rib, and caused multiple bruises throughout the rest of her body.   He then bound Mrs. Schwarzkopf with duct tape from head to toe.   Before he taped her mouth shut, he stuffed a silk flower down her throat, causing hemorrhaging at the base of her tongue.   Mrs. Schwarzkopf suffocated from the bleeding caused by the injuries to her nose and mouth.

After the robbery, Volpe picked up Appellant about one block from Mrs. Schwarzkopf’s home.   Appellant had taken Mrs. Schwarzkopf’s purse, her wallet and its contents, and her jewelry, including a seven and one-half carat diamond ring, a strand of pearls, a diamond and platinum tennis bracelet, and a sapphire tennis bracelet.   Later that same day, Appellant admitted to Volpe that he had killed Mrs. Schwarzkopf, and threatened Volpe not to say anything or he would kill Volpe and his girlfriend.   That evening, Volpe contacted Gigliotti and told him to come to Florida to come pick up Appellant.

Gigliotti agreed to pick up Appellant in Florida, but later called Volpe from Valdosta, Georgia, and told him that he would not drive any further south.   On September 20, 1997, Volpe (along with an unwitting employee of Volpe’s) drove Appellant from New Port Richey, Florida, to Valdosta Georgia, where they met Gigliotti.   Gigliotti then drove Appellant back to Chicago along with the items taken from Mrs. Schwarzkopf in the robbery.

When Gigliotti and Appellant arrived in Chicago, they went to Farris Rafidi’s restaurant and met in his office.   Gigliotti then decided to dispose of all of the jewelry except the diamond ring because he believed the rest of the jewelry was worthless.   The diamond ring was eventually purchased by Rafidi for $22,000.   The money was divided among the co-conspirators.   Appellant’s cut was $10,000, Gigliotti’s was $8000, and Volpe’s was $4000.

Monsters Among Us: Norman Cadmus killed Kevin Beam and Linda Arnold in their Linglestown, PA home; Sentenced to life in prison

remembering the victimsFrom Norman Cadmus’ appeal: This case arises out of a brutal double murder that took place in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, 14 years ago, in March of 1996. On March 6, 1996, police and fire officials responded to a suspicious fire inside a residence at 1052 North Mountain Road, in Lower Paxton Township. Inside the home first responders uncovered a grisly scene-a man and a woman, dead, both victims of homicide. One of the victims of this killing, Kevin Beam, had been beaten about the head and strangled, and had died as a result of manual strangulation and blunt force trauma. The second victim, a woman, Linda Arnold, had been shot in the head. Police determined that, following this double murder, a fire had been deliberately set at the residence, in an apparent effort to mask the brutal killing of these two victims.

Acting on this grisly discovery, police then launched a five-year investigation into this double murder. In the course of this investigation, police identified the Petitioner, Norman Cadmus as a possible suspect and in January 2001 questioned Cadmus, a casual acquaintance of the Arnold family, regarding his knowledge of this dual homicide. Under police questioning Cadmus confessed to involvement in these murders. According to Cadmus’ confession, on March 6, 1996, he accompanied another man, William Stephens, also known as Billy Lightfeather, to the home of Linda Arnold, 1052 North Mountain Road, to collect a debt Arnold owed Stephens.

Cadmus claimed that he initially remained inside the car while Stephens entered the home, but then heard the sounds of a violent confrontation inside the residence. Entering the home, Cadmus stated that he came upon one of the victims, Kevin Beam, locked in a violent struggle with Stephens, who was wielding a knife. Cadmus acknowledged to police that he joined in that struggle, grabbing a bottle and striking Beam repeatedly on the head and upper torso with the broken bottle as Stephens slashed his victim with a knife. After Beam collapsed unconscious, Cadmus related that Stephens wrapped a plastic bag around Beam’s head and asphyxiated him. According to Cadmus’ confession, Stephens then sought out Linda Arnold, and killed her, shooting her in the head. Having participated in this fashion in the double murder of Arnold and Beam, Cadmus then watched as Stephens poured kerosene and paint thinner throughout the house, and set it ablaze in an effort to conceal this killing.
