Scott Guy

New Zealand Farmer Shot Dead on Farm

From Wikipedia :
Scott Guy was shot to death at the gate of the family farm in Feilding, New Zealand in July 2010. Six months later, his brother-in-law, Ewen Macdonald, was charged with the murder. Macdonald was married to Scott Guy's sister Anna and Scott was best man at their wedding. Both men used to manage the Guy's family farm and surrounding properties on Aorangi Rd a few miles from Feilding.

Macdonald was defended by high profile defense lawyer, Greg King. After a trial that captured the attention of the New Zealand media and public, Macdonald was found not guilty. King attributed the public's interest in the case to "unadulterated racism" as the victim and the accused were "good looking white people". Two months later, King himself was found dead in a suspected suicide.

Scott Guy was shot dead at the end of his driveway after he stopped to open a farm gate early in the morning of 8 July 2010. He died from shotgun wounds to his neck, face and arm. His body was discovered by a truck driver, David Berry at about 7.00am. Mr Berry called the police at 7.08am and then called his landlord, Bruce Johnstone. When Johnstone arrived, he took a quick look at the body and phoned Macdonald at 7.16am; two police cars soon arrived and Macdonald arrived on his quadbike shortly after that.  Macdonald immediately rang Scott's father at 7.21am sounding distressed and incoherent.

The police alleged that Macdonald had held a grudge against Scott after the latter returned from outback Australia in 2008 and said he wanted to inherit the farm. There was an on-going rivalry between the two. Because of the tension Bryan Guy, Scott's father called a number of family meetings to clear the air. Scott was given responsibility to raise the calves and grow the crops for the cows. Macdonald was given responsibility for the dairy side of the business. The tension appeared to have subsided and Bryan Guy reported that in the previous 12 months "everyone seemed to be getting along really well." Two weeks before the murder, MacDonald and Scott traveled to Invercargill together for a dairying conference. Nikki Guy, Scott's other sister, said the pair had a "fantastic time". At the trial, the Crown alleged Scott still wanted to take control of the farm and went to one particular family meeting with an agenda outlining his demands. The prosecutor claimed "this might as well have been his death warrant".

One of the Guy's former farm workers, Callum Boe, subsequently told police that he and Macdonald used to go on hunting trips they referred to as "missions". He told police that on one mission in October 2008, they torched an old home on Scott's section. In January, 2009 about 18 months before the murder, they vandalized a home being built by Scott and his wife, Kylee, causing $14,000 worth of damage. At the time no one knew that Macdonald was responsible.

Readers Account:
Scott Guy was shot from close range at the gate of his rural property 8th July 2010. in Feilding, New Zealand, believed to be between 4.45am and 5 am. His body was found by a neighbor at 7.05 am beside his truck. It was ascertained he'd been on his computer at 4.41am and was on his way to start work on his farm, milking cows, just along the road from his house. He would have got out of his truck to open the gate. His DOB is 21st Dec. 1978.

His brother-in-law who lived on the same family property and worked on the farm, Ewen McDonald was charged with his murder but found Not Guilty at trial. Ewen's date of birth is 5th June 1980. He was seen in the milking shed starting work at approx 5.03 am. when he deactivated the alarm. There was a history of competitiveness and some bad vibes between them but also good friendship. Some jealousy existed over their roles in the family farm business - Ewen believing he did more work than Scott who was the owner's son and more casual.

After the trial it became known that he was responsible for prior acts of vandalism against Scott and his wife's property, poaching neighbors animals, shooting neighbors deer, bashing to death some young calves owned by a neighbor etc. Acts that showed callous destruction and deception.  One of the unanswered mysteries in the case relate to 3 pure bred puppies owned by Scott's wife that went missing from a litter of 7, at the same time. They were noticed as missing the next day- last siting of them was 7th July 2010, the day before the murder. Neighbors testified to hearing 3 shots around 5 am , which would have made it impossible for Ewen to have done it and got to the cow shed on his bike , turn off the alarm ,without looking suspicious ( hot, sweaty, puffed etc on a winter's morning - also he would have had to dispose of the weapon.- and pups ).

The trial brought up lots of inconclusive evidence, but public opinion was that he would have been guilty, based on his "undercover" violent escapades. Wikipedia on google will have timeline and details, plus photos. I've not been able to figure out what to look for to represent the puppies! It's believed they could have been taken earlier as a way to make it look like it was linked to Scott's murder. The farm worker who arrived to milk the cows also saw on the road, 2 cars, around the time, but no one came forward and it's not known if they were significant.

Also, the day before a dodgy stranger smelling of alcohol and cigarettes came to the house looking for Scott - he has not been identified or located either. Ewen, married to Scott's sister since they were very young, went to school with Scott, lived on family farm and treated as one of the family. Worked very hard, excellent farmer, hunter, into gardening, good at sport, running, karate, coached kids rugby team, community guy, asthmatic, quiet, bottled up emotions, didn't like small talk. Put everything into his farming.


This came to me from a reader and the account given was from this reader.  I edited out parts of her account that don't matter here.  I was intrigued, especially since there had been an arrest and a trial, with the suspect being found innocent.  Since then no other suspects have emerged.  So whodunnit?  I ran the charts and wait until you see what they say!

It is assumed that he was murdered between 4:30 and 5:00 am at the gate on the farm.  I always run charts for the previous hour or two to see what is in place before the victim is murdered.  There is usually something going on.  So the first chart I ran for this event was for 4 am.

The earlier chart usually helps with the seventh house reading.  The chart should show who the person is that is coming along, the person the victim is going to meet next.  Well, this chart clearly shows that this person is a destructive criminal.  Pluto rules the seventh and is sitting in the eighth, a clear marker for a dangerous person who lives a criminal life.  Mars also rules the seventh and you can see it in the fourth house, showing this dangerous person to already be on this man's property.  Mars is disposed of by Mercury in the second so this criminal is a thief.  Pluto in the eighth is disposed of by Saturn in the fourth so the purpose was to enter the property and cause the death of someone there.  Saturn rules the dead body and it is in the fourth, this while we know he was shot to death on his own farm.  Mars is also there, as already noted, showing that the bullet was fired on the home property.  Pluto is conjunct the node so it looks like this was planned out and not a random or accidental event.  This man was targeted and probably by this vicious criminal.

It's to be noted that this man ran a dairy farm. Virgo is on the fourth house cusp and Virgo is a marker for dairies.  In turn, the cusp is disposed of by Mercury in Cancer in the second house and Cancer is a marker for milk and lactating mothers.  Mercury is the merchant, the trader, the businessman.  The second house is how this  man made his living.  The charts fit.

Noting that the first house ruler is Venus and she is in the third house, you can see that he had just walked out of the gate off of his property and was near to the road.  The cusp to the fourth would be the gate to the property and Venus is into the third, not far, but far enough to show him off the property and close to the road.  Is it known that someone drove by and shot him?  Or did they walk up from behind?  The charts clearly show the killer to already be on the property.  At the same time, I see that Neptune rules the tenth house from the ninth, showing this person's home to be in the woods or on land without a structure.  Neptune means he is not easily seen, he is hidden away and the ninth house shows his home to be outdoors.  Was the "dodgy stranger" a homeless man?  If so, he may be the criminal they are looking for.

The thing about the 4:30 am chart is the death pattern.  It is almost completely emergent.  This tells me he died closer to 4:45 am than 5:00 am.  Although time is not the same on Earth as it is in space, it gives a general idea of the spatial time.  Here it appears closer to 4 than 5.  Anyways, you can see that the eighth house ruler is now Saturn and it is in the fourth house; the secondary chart ruler, the Moon, is in the twelfth house; the Moon is 3 degrees sinister to Caput Algol, a fixed star that describes murder.  The node is still in the eighth house, showing planning.  And Pluto has moved into the seventh house, a marker for violence.  In the seventh house, this may well describe the killer.  The interesting placement of Pluto in Capricorn would describe somebody who was older, thin, scraggly and dirty, living a simple life or a life of few means, in poverty.  But it would also describe somebody who lived outside of society, rebellious, upstart, somebody desiring change and willing to create chaos to achieve that desire.  Many people dismiss Pluto because it is no longer considered a planet but now a dwarf planet.  But I have found Pluto to be forceful and predictive in forensics.  Dwarf planet or not, it is definitely a predictor of violence, uprising and even destruction.  It is almost always a predictor of change.  It just makes me wonder how many other dwarf planets are out there and what effect they may have in these events.

Pluto appears to be a director in this case.  As a descriptor for our killer, it describes a rough person who has strong desires and will resort to violence and chaos to achieve his means.  The position of Pluto in the eighth house early on shows us that this person is also a criminal, someone unafraid to break rules and lives outside of society.  In all cases I have seen this position describes somebody who cannot be trusted; somebody dangerous.  I think this describes the unknown stranger who has been described as "dodgy".  None the less, the killer was someone who lived in the woods by simple, hardscrabble means and was likely homeless.  In the chart for 4:30 am, the seventh house ruler, now Jupiter, is in the tenth house.  This shows the killer in retreat, as the tenth house shows his "home" or the place he calls his own.  This "home" described by the tenth house ruler, Neptune, which is in the ninth.  So he has run to the woods to hide.  Neptune is all about secrets and mysteries and this "home" in the woods is his hideout.  He used it effectively on this occasion as no one saw him retreat nor did they look for him in the woods.  He got away.

Saturn in the fourth house shows us the body in the grave. We know he wasn't buried but the fourth house indicates the body is at the home.  And we know he was killed on his own property.  Saturn is disposed of by Mercury in the second so the killing was done for money.  Perhaps there was something this man wanted, as Mercury can describe a thief.  But it also describes the merchant, the businessman and has an affinity with dairy farms.  There is a documented feud within the family over the farm and the money it made, with some people feeling cheated.  Feeling cheated is a feeling connected to Neptune, where one feels someone is "sneaking around".  There is no doubt that this murder was the result of someone sneaking around but was it connected to family?  Was this planned murder committed by a dirty stranger but paid for by a family member?  With the tenth house and fourth house so prominent, there are strong markers toward family business and what can only be described as secrets or things hidden.  The tenth house ruler is disposed of by Uranus in Aries, also in the tenth house.  Uranus is closely aligned with Jupiter, which rules the seventh but is also in the tenth.  There is a possibility that this was a paid hit.  That this dirty criminal that showed up there and shot this man did so at someone's elses behalf.  Both Uranus and Jupiter are disposed of by Mars and at the time of death, Mars was the bullet.  Mars, in turn, is disposed of by Mercury, which describes thievery but also clearly describes the family dairy farm.  So was someone stealing from the farm?  Was that the reason this man was shot?  I cannot tell for sure but the indicators do exist.

The 5 am chart does not show much else but it does show me that the gun was disposed of near the scene.  Saturn at the fourth house cusp shows the body right at the gate.  Jupiter, the seventh house ruler, is in the tenth, still showing the killer to be in his "own place" or home.  Jupiter is disposed of by Mars, which is in the third.  The gun was tossed in the woods but not far from the road.  It would have been left nearby but not directly at the scene.  This man felt safe tossing it in the woods, even close to the roadway, because he knew that nobody would connect him to it and perhaps even that no one was aware that he lived in those woods.  His presence was as thin as smoke.  Neptune kept him well hidden.  Uranus in Aries describes an outlaw and also a place where outlaws hide out.  He was hiding somewhere nearby but in a place not easily seen.  Both Mars, the  marker for the gun, and Saturn, the marker for the body, are disposed of by Mercury, which is the marker for a thief.  I believe the chart shows that the gun was stolen and he disposed of it where it might be found to frame somebody else for this.  Mercury also rules the first, so this person he was trying to frame would have been connected somehow to the victim.  If there were any guns missing from the property, this could point to the actions of the killer.

Mars in Virgo describes a small  handgun.  Moon in Taurus disposed of by Venus in Leo in the third describes a neighborhood belief that this victim was wealthy and had more than most.  In fact, his own relatives believed he had more than they did.  In general, people may have thought of the family as show offs or people who were self indulgent and overly proud.  There could have been a lot of envy.  Female members of the family may have behaved like princesses. I won't write that in stone but Venus is in Leo.  But public perception of this family was as if they were royalty.  And there was infighting inside the family over money; possibly some people were stealing.  People may have been taking more than their share and feeling entitled to it.  With Cancer on the second house cusp, there is no doubt that this farm supported everybody in the family and everybody in the family felt it was theirs.  I think it's fascinating that the Moon rules the second house and it is in the sign Taurus, which rules bulls and cows.

Pluto in Capricorn disposed of by Saturn shows a singular purpose in the execution.  Jupiter in Aries disposed of by Mars shows the killer came armed.  This criminal came there to murder this man.  Gemini on the first house cusp at the time of death may mean that there was actually more than one target.  Mercury is in Cancer disposed of by the Moon in the twelfth and this makes it feel like a secret plot; a scheme.  Neptune ruling the tenth also hints at deception and secret scheming.  The person who did this is best described by Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Aries.  So this describes what we have already discussed: a seedy individual who lived a hardscrabble life and had no qualms about committing crimes and living outside of society.  This person, as so many other criminal minds, lived (lives) outside of the law.  So the murder of this man was no big deal to the killer.  My only question is why.  Money seems to be a big player in the chart, giving me pause, especially with the markers for secrets and scheming.  It is possible that this was a paid hit.  I cannot find any ties in the charts that bring this man together with the family.  I do not see any family members connected to the murder.  So I have no idea who would have hired this killer.  In fact, it generally looks like this man worked alone.  Saturn in Virgo disposed of by Mercury in Cancer points to robbery.  Is it possible that this man just thought the victim would have money in his pockets?  At this time in the morning, getting ready to milk the cows?  It's possible but it seems sort of stupid.  I mean, would somebody kill this man in order to steal whatever coins he might have in work jeans?  Or are the money indicators telling us that he was paid to do this in advance?  This is all just conjecture however because the charts do not show motive other than theft.  Only those who know the finest details of this case will know if anything was stolen or if anyone was stealing on a regular basis and was seeking a way to cover it up.  But the charts clearly show a thief.

And the only markers that describe this man, Jupiter in Aries conjoined Uranus, describe a criminal.  An outlaw who may have spent time in prison, may even be on probation because he is living in the woods in a hideout, as if he were being looked for.  So it is possible that this wanton criminal was already in trouble.  But whether he went to jail for another crime in the meantime is hard to decipher.  So without searching those woods myself, all I can do is suggest that somebody should.

David Micheal Grubbs

Young Man Decapitated On Short Walk Home

From Daily Tidings :

Ashland residents are shaken by what police describe as a violent murder that took place on the Central Ashland Bike Path Saturday afternoon."It's just really scary," said Susan Berry, 62, whose home sits a few hundred feet away from where the crime took place."We bike together frequently on the path," she said, looking down and clutching the hand of her young adopted daughter, whom she did not want to be named.The body of 23-year-old David Michael Grubbs, of Ashland, was found near Hunter Park by someone using the popular walking and biking trail at about 5:35 p.m. Saturday. Grubbs' body was bloody and lying in the middle of the path, said Ashland Police Sgt. Tighe O'Meara.Police have declined to say what weapon was used in the attack, except that it was a "large, sharp-edged object," and that Grubbs' fatal wounds were inflicted to his neck and head. Initial reports that Grubbs might have been a gunshot victim proved false once investigators were able to examine his body.

O'Meara said police believe Grubbs was dead less than 30 minutes before his body was found."It's just so unfortunate that nobody saw it happen," said another Ashland resident, who did not want to be named because she was afraid of revealing herself to a killer who was still on the loose. "I think we are all a little distressed. It's kind of odd to have something like this happen here."Her home also is a few hundred feet away from where Grubbs' body was found.Berry, who has lived in Ashland for just three months, said she was surprised by residents' attitude that they live in an oasis."People aren't on guard here," she said. "They all think they are safe."The last murder in Ashland took place about seven years ago, in late 2004. There were two murders within the city limits that year. The first was the bludgeoning death of predatory sex offender David Evan Rice, 68, of Ashland, and the other was the stabbing death of Samuel Rath, 23, of Ashland. Both victims knew their attackers.

Police said at this point in their investigation, they do not believe there was any connection between Grubbs and his killer.Working in conjunction with the Jackson County Sheriff's Department and police from Medford, Phoenix and Talent, Ashland police will bolster its presence on the bike path, said O'Meara."We'll be performing extra patrols and performing some high-visibility patrols," he said, "both to further the investigation and provide a visible presence."Police on Monday stopped passers-by around Hunter Park, seeking any information about Saturday's attack.Police are requesting anyone with information to call 541-482-5211. To leave an anonymous tip, call 541-552-2333.

The Ashland School District sent an email Monday morning to parents of students at Walker Elementary, John Muir and Ashland Middle schools, warning them to exercise caution on the way to and from school, Superintendent Juli Di Chiro said.Grubbs' body was found only a few hundred feet away from the playground at Walker Elementary, and just a few hundred yards down the bike path from the middle school."Police are calling this a random act of violence," said Di Chiro. "That definitely heightened my level of concern around the safety issues with our students walking and biking to school."While she stressed that the schools are safe, her message to parents advised students to walk to school in pairs or groups and avoid the bike path if possible. Elementary school students should be accompanied by an adult on the path and shouldn't walk any route alone, the email said."That goes for all students ... the older students should be walking in pairs or groups, and keeping their cellphones handy," said Di Chiro. "He (Grubbs) was just a kid walking home from work."Di Chiro said that until police can identify a suspect, those precautions will remain in place.

On Sunday, Southern Oregon University public safety officials sent out an email to its students as well, asking them to stay alert in the wake of the attack."Please be aware of your surroundings when you are out and about," the email from Rich Walsh, SOU campus public safety co-director, read. "We recommend if you use the bike path to travel in pairs or groups."The email also recommended students inform others before they use the bike path, and to carry a flashlight, whistle and cellphone if traveling at night.Grubbs, who lived on California Street and worked at the local Shop'n Kart, was believed to be walking home from work, said some of his fellow employees and friends.Store manager Vernon Hull said Grubbs walked to and from work on the bike path frequently."He was just a great kid," said Hull, turning away before becoming too emotional. "I don't think there is anything left to say."Andrea Venenable of Ashland works at Shop'n Kart and was a good friend of Grubbs', she said.On Monday, she knelt down sobbing beside the still visible stain of blood left on the bike bath where her friend was killed."I just can't believe someone would do this to him," she said. "He was too good of a kid for this to happen."If there is any truth behind what they say about only the good dying young," she said, "then David was one of them."After about 15 minutes kneeling beside where Grubbs died, Venenable rose to her feet."What a sick criminal."Reach reporter Sam Wheeler at 541-499-1470 or email


This case was suggested to me by a reader and once I looked at it, it just grabbed me.  This is one of the most violent, outrageous and unjust murders I have ever heard about.  I mean, he is walking home from work and somebody chops his head off with a sword or an ax?  Right out in the open, on a bike path, in daylight?  Wow.  That's incredibly gutsy on the part of some lunatic.  This person had to be highly motivated, right?  But then why is everyone saying that no one hated David, he had no enemies, no one to fear?  If this is true, then this is a random murder and how scary is that?  I mean, somebody is brave enough to do this to a total stranger?  All of these questions just had my head spinning and I had to look at the charts.  I had to see what they would say.

Ok, I know the cops say he died about a half an hour before he was found and he was found at 5:35 pm.  So they believe he was killed around 5:00.  I am not going to argue the timeline but I am going to say that the chart to show me his death was one I drew for 4:30 pm.  As I've said a thousand times before, there are disparities between time on Earth and time in the heavens.  It can be variable and hard to pin down.  But take a look at this chart for 4:30 and you will see the death pattern emerging.  This does not mean he died at 4:30, it simply means that the factors leading to his death were already in play at that time.

David's marker, the first house ruler, is Venus and she is in the eighth house.  Big marker for death.  Combined with Pluto, also in the eighth, the markers describe a violent death.  Pluto, a violent descriptor in forensic charts, is disposed of by  Saturn, which rules the bones and the dead body.  So the purpose of the violence was death; this was no accident and contrary to general belief at this time, he may have been targeted.  Because the death pattern appears in an earlier chart, I run a chart for 4 pm, as well, to see if conditions are appearing that point to this event.

The first thing I notice is that the tenth house ruler is Saturn and it is in the sixth house.  This would be an indicator for his current location and we can see he is still at work.  But also note that the seventh house ruler is still Scorpio and Pluto is in the ninth house.  This person who killed him is already outdoors, on that path.  This is way ahead of his arrival we can assume since he is still at work.  Mars, co ruler of this attacker, is in the fifth house.  So we can assume the person is also in an area where people play and exercise.  We know the playground was only a few hundred yards away and that many people used the path to run and jog as well as ride bikes.  So the fifth house here makes total sense.  Notice the Moon is there, as well, predicting that David would be found on the path soon. Both of these planets are disposed of by Mercury which describes children (as well as the fifth) and we know the elementary school was close as well.  In fact, there were children nearby when it occurred.

The first house ruler, Venus, is already in the eighth even in this early chart.  It is disposed of by Jupiter in the twelfth and these planets are also in mutual reception.  Mutual reception and translation of light are two factors that bring things to pass.  The eighth house ruler in mutual reception with the first house ruler tells us that his death would come to pass; circumstances would allow it.  So in using these two charts, for the hour before the murder, we are able to determine viability as they do reflect the facts as we know them.

The next chart, for the time of death as reported by the coroner, we see other factors emerging.  In fact, it starts looking like David Grubbs knew his killer and that there was a personal reason for his killing.  I will show you what I see and you can determine this for yourself.

Notice that at the recorded time of death, Mercury rules the first house and it is in the seventh.  Notice also that it is close to the node.  By their placement in the seventh in Sagittarius, they are disposed of by  Jupiter, the seventh house ruler.  This looks an awful lot like he had planned to meet somebody along the way.  Or, at the very least, the person who attacked him knew he would be there at this time.  Either way, it suggests they knew each other.  Jupiter also is disposed of by Venus, which rules (in this chart and the earlier ones) the fifth house.  The fifth house suggests romance as does Venus.  Jupiter in Taurus is a feminine placement and Venus is a traditional ruler of women.  Has anybody considered that this was done by a woman?  That she may have been romantically involved with David?  Or, at the least, infatuated and possibly jealous?  Mercury as his marker shows him to be younger than her and possibly not interested or only seeing her as a friend.  But Mercury is also disposed of by Jupiter and sitting in the seventh, so it might be that his purpose in being where he was at that time was to meet up with her.  I'm going to pretend I'm on Criminal Minds right now and ask who it was who found the body. Was it a woman?

This is the time that police believe he actually died.  However, this chart is beyond the death pattern shown in the previous charts so maybe their timing is a little off.  Pluto remains in the eighth but it no longer rules an angle.  It does dispose of the fourth house ruler, however.  The other ruler of the fourth, Mars, is actually in the fourth.  So this brings the Sun into play.  And since it rules the fourth house, we are looking at an event that occurred very near to David's home and probably involved a neighbor.  This is underscored by the rulership of the Moon over the third house.  I realize that David used this path to walk home everyday so this makes it a "neighborhood" location and because of this, there were people who knew he used the path, especially people from the local area.  So this brings some things to mind.  We know this attacker did not work where he did because he was at work and this person was shown to be on the path already.  We also have a good idea that the attacker may have been a woman and someone either involved with or interested in David.  Jupiter in Taurus can describe a larger woman and we know she was older (his marker being Mercury).  I know it's not but it kind of looks like his mother from here.  Fourth house ruler at play with the Moon and Venus.  I do not think that is what's it's saying actually but that the woman is older and perhaps large in size and is either interested in him and jealous or just outright angry at him, perhaps for a snide remark or a rejection.  Mercury in Sagittarius is quite capable of jokes and snide remarks.

This last chart is for the time he was found.  I am not a psychic but I have a feeling that this woman either "found" his body or was hanging around nearby when they did.  Jupiter in Taurus disposed of by Venus with Venus closely aligned with Mercury, David's marker, just makes it seem to me that she never left the area after the attack.  She hung around to see what happened next.  And here's the reason I think she pretended to find him there.  Not only is Jupiter in Taurus disposed of by Venus with Venus close to Mercury, Saturn in Libra, the marker for the body, is disposed of by the same Venus.  Saturn in Libra, interestingly enough, is in the fifth house, which shows it laid out in the "playground" or "exercise area".  Libra also describes areas where people meet and hang out.  A body in this house could never be hidden or buried.  In fact, I am sure she wanted it found and she was maybe the one who "found" it.  I do not believe that anyone would put this woman together with David but she knew him somehow. Perhaps she shopped in the grocery store and he bagged her stuff.

Neptune in Aquarius is rising into the angular tenth house and describes all too well the confusion the authorities felt at the find.  They had no idea what happened or why.  In fact, they still don't.  Neptune is disposed of by Uranus in Aries, which rules the tenth house.  Murders are rare in this part of the woods, as reported in the facts, and something like this just took them by surprise.  They had no idea what to do with it because they had so little experience with brutal murders.  This is a part of the reason they are unable to solve it and they are clinging to false beliefs.  Neptune can do this.  But this was not a random attack, it wasn't some "crazy" stranger.  This woman (yes, I think it was a woman) knew this young man and had a reason, however ridiculous, to kill him this way.  I am not sure they will ever find her.
