NEW DETAILS EMERGE IN CRAIGSLIST HORROR..

There was a shocking crime reported yesterday by local stations in Colorado.. A grisly crime as well. Michelle Wilkins, 26, was seven months pregnant. She went to a home of a person she found on Craigslist who was selling baby clothes.. Instead, the woman, Dynel Lane, 34, cut the baby out of Wilkins' stomach. The baby died.. the woman was rushed to the hospital..

The TRIBUNE NEWS WIRE dispatches this graphic information:
Lane is accused of stabbing Wilkins and removing the fetus.

The fetus died, but the mother survived and has a “very optimistic” prognosis, authorities said Thursday.

Authorities’ version of events was unlike anything the local district attorney has seen in his 32 years practicing law.

‘I’m pregnant’

Stabbed in the stomach and bleeding, the victim called 911.

“She cut me,” she told the operator.

“Who cut you?” the operator asked.

“I don’t know,” the victim said.

Then came the revelation.

“She cut you in your stomach?” the operator asked.

“Uh-huh. I’m pregnant,” the victim said.

Even more, again graphic:
Searching the split-level home, police found several bloody towels being laundered in the washing machine.

David Ridley, the 35-year-old husband of Dynel Lane, told police he had returned home earlier after leaving work to meet his wife.

As the husband walked downstairs toward the basement, his wife walked around the corner “covered in blood,” the police report said.

“She told David she just miscarried and the baby was in the bathtub upstairs,” the police report said.

MORE:

After Ridley saw his bloody wife, he ran to the bathroom and found “a small baby lying in the bathtub,” the police report said.

“He rubbed the baby slightly then rolled it over to … see it take a gasping breath,” the report said.

Ridley wrapped the baby in a towel, and apparently unaware that its mother was still bleeding inside the house, drove the baby and his wife to the emergency room of Longmont United Hospital, police said.

There is more information.. grisly, graphic.. and disturbing. This is worse than a horror movie.. This is horror on a scale unseen in Colorado before.. Police are now asking for information from anyone else who may have traveled to "D's" house for baby clothes as a result of the Craigslist ad..

This website has said many times over, true horror is much worse than any works of fiction. The reality of this crime, this Craigslist shocker, is still sinking in..

Another thing worth noting--and let this sink in:
Under Colorado law, essentially, there’s no way murder charges can be brought if it’s not established that the fetus lived as a child outside the body of the mother for some period of time,” Garnett said during the media conference. “I don’t know yet whether that can be established, what our facts are here"

Let that sink in..
True horror hits Colorado. And it's a town that may never get over the shock of the Craigslist Killer.

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round..
