11 yr old Jr. Blk Belt Jamie Cates with her throat slit was able to crawl to a phone and call 911. Her mother lay dead in another room.

Jamie is a Jr. Blk Belt at Mont Vernon Karate Studio, an EP Kenpo school in Mont Vernon, NH. Her instructor is Jim Peacock of the Steve White, Lee Wedlake lineage.

With NH current laws, these animals will NOT face the death penalty.

Jamie and her father are in need of prayer. At the bottom of the below article is information for making donations. Also their Kenpo school will be holding a fund raiser on Nov. 7th. You can get details visiting their home page @ www.mvkarate.com

Please join me in starting a prayer chain for one of our own. Teej


Kimberly Cates Machete Slaying Causes Uproar in Small New Hampshire Town

October 22, 2009

All is not baseball and apple pie lately in Mont Vernon, New Hampshire. The residents of this small, quaint New England town of about 2,000 people are in an uproar over the recent random attack of nurse Kimberly Cates, 42, and her 11-year-old daughter, Jaime, in an unprovoked incident believed to have been carried out sometime prior to 4 a.m. on Sunday, October 4, 2009.
The plan to rob a home at random was purportedly hatched the night before when a group of four teenagers got together at the home of William Marks, 18, one of the alleged planners. The other three teens included Steven Spader, 17, Christopher Gribble, 19, and Quinn Glover, 17. One of the teens, Gribble, described by friends and acquaintances as a home-schooled Mormon with aspirations to do missionary work, apparently told friends that he saw himself as a "destroying angel." He also allegedly told a friend that he hated his father and wanted to kill him, and once told someone that the most difficult of the Ten Commandments to follow was "Thou shalt not kill."

Link to more of the story.

Its amazing that Jamie survived the attack, but she is going to have a very long, painful, and difficult rehab ahead of her.

You can also send a message to Jamie here:

One more reason to remember that suicidal impulses are just homicidal ones turned inside out. As I was told by a psychotherapist, "Anyone who says he wants to kill himself is just as likely to try to kill you." Threats of suicide should never be brushed off the way these were.

What a brave, strong little girl. I'm so sad for what happened to her and her family.

This is one of those situations where the punishment should fit the crime. Truly tragic that one simple, senseless act will now haunt all the families from now on.

A chilling report :(.

We can only imagine how the families of all those involved feel and it is hard not to give way to unbridled anger at the perpetrators of such a vile act.

Young Jaimie Cates has spoken to our local paper for the first time. She came home from Mass General yesterday.

As positive as this news was, I'm writing it with a heavy heart. When I went to the Nashua Telegraph to get the link for the story, one of the headlines from today was that there was a murder-suicide in not just one, but two New Hampshire towns over the last two days. Both killings left orphaned children.

New Hampshire has the lowest violent crime rate per capita of any state in the nation...and we're also a small state of just over a million people.

We are certainly not immune to problems, but when something like this happens, it feels like losing a neighbour, even if one has no personal connection to the families suffering the loss. :(

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and I will contribute what I can.

I have a family and I don't know how I would feel if someone hurt them but there is a special place in hell for scum like these.

It would be a shame if, after finding out where they live and where they will be, that someone was prepared and with their own murderous intent sent them off this mortal coil earlier than planned; regardless of how NH feels about it.

Those wastes of dna should be shot.

In the knee caps first, then the elbows, then left alone for many, many hours, in the hot sun, on a gravel road....

I could mention salt and various other nasty stuff, but I won't.

I think of my daughter when i read "stuff" like that...and it just rips my heart out...

Like I said in another thread, "What the f*** is wrong with some people?"

My condolences :( These people need to be treated for the crimes that they commited. There's no reason someone like that should be allowed back in functoning society. They should be removed.
