There is some new information on the four Joliet, Ill., suspects who are facing first-degree murder charges for the strangulation deaths of two 22-year-old Black men who were allegedly robbed, killed, and partially dismembered in January. Police investigators have now learned that three of the accused murderers may have had sex on top of the corpses, reports the Joliet Patch.
The four young suspects, Alisa Massaro (pictured top right), 18; Bethany McKee (pictured bottom left), 18; Adam Landerman (pictured top left), 19 (his mother is a Joliet police sergeant); and Joshua Miner (pictured bottom right), 24, were charged with the gruesome killings of best friends Eric Glover, 22, and Terrence Rankin, 22, according to police.
The bodies of Glover and Rankins were discovered in Massaro’s home, and according to Joliet police, the two victims were allegedly lured to the home, robbed of their cash, strangled, and then partially dismembered.
Police were tipped off on January 10th about the two dead bodies in Massaro’s home. When officers arrived at the address on Hickory Street, they saw movement within the residence and proceeded to investigate.
Police state that Landerman, Massaro, and Miner were just sitting around obliviously playing video games when police barged in.
The two dead victims were lying face down and had plastic bags tied around their heads when police found them. One of the man’s hands had been bound, while it was apparent that the other body’s hands had been tied up at one point but later released.
The fourth suspect, McKee, had left the home before police arrived but was picked up by authorities in nearby Kankakee.
So far, police have not released any information as to who actually committed the brutal murders or the motives for the killings.
According to the most-recently released information regarding the sex-on-corpses allegations, though, a police report states that Minor remembered his girlfriend, Massaro’s, desire to have “sex with a dead guy.” So he allegedly asked the young woman if she would have intercourse with him on top of Glover’s and Rankins’ corpses.
When Massaro was asked to take part in the gruesome act, the police report states that she reportedly “made a smirk on her face” and refused. The report then further elaborates that when officers questioned Massaro further about the bizarre plan, she admitted that she and Minor did have sexual relations on top of the dead bodies.
McKee allegedly told police that she believes Landerman also joined in on the necrophilic fetish as well. The young woman allegedly told authorities it was Minor who concocted the idea for the bizarre sexual romp and blamed him for coming up with the idea to kill Glover and Rankin.
Police state that McKee provided them with the details on how the heinous sex romp had been carried out:
McKee related that during the night that Josh wanted to put the bodies together, which they did, side by side and they put something over the bodies, which was beige in color, and they were going to have sex on top of the bodies,” a report said. “McKee relates that she did not stick around for that ….
The police report went on to further state:
McKee relates that Alisa agreed with having sex on the bodies because she just wanted to go along with Josh and that they had been together a long time. McKee related during the whole interview that Josh was the one responsible for most of these actions and Adam had just followed along and had only known Josh for this past week but was more of the (follower) in this and Josh was more of the leader.
McKee, who has a 1-year-old child, also admitted to authorities that Minor “scared her.”
Minor has an extensive rap sheet: He previously pleaded guilty to unauthorized videotaping involving child pornography when he was 16. Three years ago, he was also convicted of a residential burglary and was ordered in to a state boot camp program.
The case is still being investigated by authorities.
