Zack Rathwell, Josh Hunter, Jordan Segura, Lawrence Hong and Kaitlin Perras murdered in Calgary, Canada

A terrible tragedy unfolded in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, on April 14, 2014.

About 20 people were at a house party celebrating the end of the current term at the University of Calgary. The party was more of a gathering than a raunchy blow-out. There was no outrageous music and no people falling down drunk on the street. It was a relatively tame get-together for a group of that size.

Lawrence Hong; Zackariah Rathwell; Matthew de Grood


A young man, Matthew de Grood, age 22, was invited to the party. He showed up just after 1:00 a.m. straight from work at a local grocery store. He had some sort of weapon with him when he showed up.  He then got a large knife from within the house, presumably from the kitchen. Shortly after he arrived at the house, he methodically went after the victims one after another. 

He stabbed and killed the following people:

Zackariah Rathwell, age 23, a member of a local band called Zackariah and the Prophets. He is described as an esteemed first year student at the Alberta College of Art and Design. Friends called him Zack. He was a happy kid, just starting out in life.

Joshua Hunter, age 22, from Priddis, Alberta, a drummer with the local band called Zackariah and the Prophets. He was known as Josh to his friends. He is described as somewhat quiet, smiling and caring of others. He was studying accounting at the University of Calgary and planned to resume working at a local hotel after exams.

Jordan Segura, age 23, of Calgary. He was studying religion and history at the University of Calgary. He is remembered by his family for his ability to light up a room. He had a heart of gold and a passion for life and for knowledge. He made others smile. He had worked part time at a local funeral home. His coworkers there stated that he was well liked and pleasant to work with.

Lawrence Hong, age 27, an urban studies student at the University of Calgary. Friends describe him as genuine and kind. He was a free spirit.

Kaitlin Perras, age 23, from Calgary. She was known as Kaiti to her friends. She had attended Bishop Carroll Senior High School. She liked animals and liked to read.

All of the victims are described by the Police as good kids who
Angels of God, pray for Zack, Josh,
Jordan, Lawrence and Kaitlin.
Pray for their loved ones who have
lost them. 
had no criminal records. They weren't druggies or drug dealers or gang members.

There is no readily apparent motive for this tragic event.

Matthew de Grood has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder. He is a University of Calgary graduate and had completed a degree in psychology. He was recently accepted to the school’s law program for the Fall. His parents are devastated by his actions.

Obviously Matthew de Grood had a psychotic episode and will be found not guilty by reason of temporary insanity. However, Matthew de Grood can never be released into the general population again. He must be detained for the rest of his life. He has the demonstrated ability to slaughter bystanders and strangers, one after the other.

All of the victims of this tragedy are survived by many loving friends and family members who will forever mourn them. Oceans of tears will be shed for these young men and for this young woman.  The grief is palpable and so painful.

God save us from the Lost Ones who bring death to others.

Pray that Zack, Josh, Jordan, Lawrence and Kaitlin are in heaven. Pray that they are at peace and are with God. Amen.

Demonta Collins and Davon Jiggetts - two teens in Georgia killed while running away from Dogs

Demonta Collins
Demonta Collins, age 13, of Augusta, died on April 10, 2014, in Richmond County, Georgia.

Demonta was struck by a vehicle at about 6:30 p.m. He was transported to a local hospital but died within the hour.

He was struck by a vehicle because he was trying to run away from a dog that was running at large. It has been reported that the dog had gotten out of its yard and run loose on other occasions. The breed of dog is unknown to the authors of this blog.

Robyn Gledhill, the owner of the dog, named "Shadow", was issued a citation for a violation of Georgia's State Leash Law.

Davon Jiggetts, age 17, died on April 12, 2014, in Riverdale, near Atlanta, Georgia.

Davon was struck by a vehicle after he stepped off of a bus at 1:00 a.m. He ran into
Davon Jiggetts
traffic to escape an attacking large Pit Bull dog and was killed when a car struck him on Old National Highway. The dog was killed as well.

Davon was coming home from visiting his girlfriend's house. He was only one or two blocks from his own home.

The owner of the Pit Bull is unknown.

Where are the legislators of Georgia and Augusta and Riverdale? Wake up.

Firstly, Pit Bull dogs should be banned from your jurisdictions. Many other towns, cities, provinces, and states ban these dogs outright. Pit Bulls are vicious and unpredictable dogs. They were bred 200 years ago for bull baiting, bear baiting and dog fighting. They were never intended to be family pets. They have proven that they can kill people both young and old.
A Pit Bull on the loose
Secondly, what good are leash laws if they are not rigidly enforced? After someone has died because of a dog running loose, what good is it to say: "Sorry, the dog just escaped."

God save us from this stupidity.  God save us from those who value dogs more than children.

Demonta Collins and Davon Jiggetts are survived by many loving friends and family members.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

Pray that Demonta is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Pray that Davon is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Angels of God, pray for Eduardo, for Anapaula and for

man with a giving heart. He was always willing to help anybody. A week or so before his death he had stopped to help a man who had crashed his car into a tree. Stopping to help those in distress is just something that Eduardo would do.

Eduardo's father and Eduardo's 8 year old son were in the vehicle with him when he stopped to help the girls.  A father witnessed his son's death and a son witnessed his father's death, thereby compounding the tragedy.

Eduardo had been an employee of the City of Coral Gables since 1994. He was the Maintenance Collections Supervisor in the Parking department.

Eduardo is survived by many loving friends and family members including but not limited to his father; his wife, Fatima; and his three children.

Ross McMakin - Arrested for Drunk driving in Oregon

Ross and his T-shirt
Ross McMakin, age 21, of Philomath, Oregon, was arrested on April 6, 2014.

He had reportedly driven his Ford Ranger pickup truck onto a sidewalk and hit a parked car. He is also alleged to have tried to strangle his girlfriend when she attempted to take the vehicle's keys away from him. He was apprehended by the Police sometime after 3:30 in the morning. His blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

It has been reported that Ross McMakin has been charged with drunk driving, reckless endangerment, harassment and strangulation.

The T-Shirt he was wearing at the time of his arrest stated "Drunk As Shit". Ross is as happy as a clam in his booking photo.

No doubt Ross and his buddies think this entire episode is one for the record books. It's a hoot and they will all laugh about this for decades to come. At a barbecue 20 years from now it'll be: "Do you remember the time when Ross got caught by the cops and he was pissed to the gills and he was wearing that T-shirt?".

We don't want to humiliate Ross further, but Ross isn't a kid. Many 21 year old men are
It is better to crawl home
on your hands and knees
than it is to kill or cripple
someone because
you are wasted
responsible adults, have real jobs, are married and already have children of their own.

There is nothing funny about driving wasted from booze or street drugs or prescription drugs. Innocent people die every single day from doing this. This blog is full of photos of men and women who have died from impaired drivers crashing into them and killing them.

To All Drivers: If you find that you are drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

Regret can last a lifetime.

John Harvard - a 5 year old killed by a pit bull dog in Alabama

John Harvard
John Harvard, age 5, of Riverside, Alabama, died on April 6, 2014, at a nearby hospital.

John was playing outside his home between 3:00 and 3:30 p.m. when a neighbor's pit bull dog, which was running at large, attacked the boy.

John's brother, Bradley, age 9, tried to fight off the dog and then ran to get their father for help. The father shot at the dog several times, grazing its ears.

The attacking dog weighs between 80 and 100 pounds and as of this date is being
a Pit Bull
held in an animal shelter.

Riverside is a town in St. Clair County, in northern Alabama. The town has no law requiring dogs to be leashed.

Firstly, the dog in question should be put down without question.  Secondly, the Town of Riverside needs to re-examine the entire issue of a leash law in its jurisdiction. Thirdly, Riverside should ban pit bulls and related dog breeds from within the town limits.

Pit bulls are vicious and unpredictable dogs. They were bred 200 years ago for bull baiting, bear baiting and dog fighting. They were never intended to be family pets. They have proven that they can kill people both young and old. Many towns and cities do not allow pit bulls and related breeds within their jurisdictions.

Death by dog is not acceptable in a civilized country.

John is survived by many loving family members and well-wishers, who will forever mourn him.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.


We know that John is playing in the fields of Heaven.
