I am a little bit of a real crime junkie, however I first realized of Billy Chemirmir not too long ago, although he alleged killed eighteen folks earlier than 2018. Sadly, it might be as a result of he (allegedly) preyed on a phase of society that’s sometimes neglected and simply forgotten- the aged.
Sure, I am being cautious to be clear with my “allegedly-s” as a result of he has but to go to trial. After a delay, his trial has been set to start on November 12 in Dallas County, the identical county that a few of the murders(?) occurred. I’d have sought a venue change if it was me, however I am no lawyer. Or serial killer, for that matter. Chemirmir has been in jail since his 2018 arrest.
Lots of the victims had been thought to have died of pure causes, however after taking a deeper look, it seems that 17 ladies and 1 man had been smothered to loss of life. The thought that an aged particular person’s murder loss of life could possibly be neglected so simply sends chills up my backbone. Would a assassin of the aged be capable to get away with it in the event that they stopped earlier than 18 folks?
If TV and films are proper, serial killers all the time have a motive that is both 1) sexual or 2) arty? or one thing? or 3) the response to some type of trauma. I am afraid the motive in these instances could also be far more pedestrian than that. It seems that they had been all murdered in order to be extra simply robbed of their jewellery and different valuables. Once more, how had been these smothering deaths almost missed?
Aged ladies and one man ranging in age from 75 to 94 years previous residing alone in properties or in senior facilities.
They had been all suffocated and robbed of valuables till Billy Chemirmir was arrested in 2018.
Many of the deaths had been believed to pure causes till authorities used expertise to put Chemirmir on the scene of them.
Initially, prosecutors had been going to hunt the loss of life penalty, however have since declined to take action, probably as a result of excessive expense of pursuing the loss of life penalty for an African-born suspect. However that is speculation, albeit educated:
Felony Legislation Legal professional Toby Shook says the choice in all probability needed to do with the prices concerned in pursuing the loss of life penalty in opposition to the Kenyan born suspect.
“Protection attorneys would file for motions to have an investigator and themselves interview folks in Africa, retrieve data in Africa and that will finally get very very costly,” stated Shook. “You ask for many cash to go to Africa after which should you discover mitigation proof how do you get these witnesses again over to the US to testify?”
Relations of the victims are pushing for extra legal guidelines to guard the aged in unbiased residing services. The laws appear quite common sense to me, and are “budget-neutral”:
The payments embrace requiring services to report all crimes on their property and carry out enhanced background checks on workers.
One other invoice would power Money for Gold shops to maintain data of who they do enterprise with.
Truthfully, I am shocked that Money for Gold locations do not have to do this already.
Billy Chemirmir has been beforehand arrested for drunk driving and domestic assault.
