    Ugly: Man Douses 2 Women With Gasoline, Sets Them on Fire During Robbery, Police Say

    I originally saw this being reported this morning on CNN but my subsequent search for the story cam e up with the following...

    As reported via Fox News:

    Man Douses 2 Women With Gasoline, Sets Them on Fire During Robbery, Police Say

    Friday, December 14, 2007

    LAKE WALES, Fla. — A man set fire to two women, including a pregnant one, and shot a man who tried to help them during a robbery attempt Thursday at an insurance business, police said.

    Leon Davis Jr., whose 30th birthday is Friday, walked into the Nationwide Insurance office shortly after 3:30 p.m. and demanded money from two female employees, Police Chief Herbert Gillis said. Davis was not satisfied with the amount of money he was given, threw gasoline on the women and set them on fire, Gillis told The Ledger of Lakeland.

    Davis then allegedly shot Brandon Griessman, 33, in the nose after he tried to help the women. The suspect fled leading authorities on a manhunt until he turned himself in at a Polk County Sheriff's Office substation about 7 p.m.

    Yvonne Bustamonte, 26, Jane Luciono, 23, who was six-months pregnant, were flown to Orlando hospitals in critical condition, Gillis said.

    Luciono underwent an emergency Caesarean section delivery, Gillis told the newspaper. The condition of the baby was not immediately known.

    "I've worked in this business for thirteen years and not seen or heard of anything like this in my career here," Capt. Troy Schulze said. "I've never seen anything come close to this, violence-wise. It was heartless, absolutely heartless, for someone to do something like this."

    Scott Headley, the owner of the Nationwide office, said Bustamonte has worked for him for nine years, and Luciono has worked for him for two years.

    "I can't imagine someone can do something so cruel," Headley said.

    Griessman was expected to undergo corrective surgery.

    Davis, an Eagle Lake city employee, was suspended from his job after a Nov. 30 arrest on larceny charges, police said. It was not known what he did for the city. Davis had been on probation a July 6 grand theft conviction, according to the Florida Department of Corrections Web site.

    Charges had not been filed as of Thursday night, but Gillis said he expected Davis to be charged with three counts of attempted murder and arson. It was not know if Davis had an attorney.

    Prayers for recovery for all of the victims have gone up.


    I'm awaiting for the Brady people to say how this crime proves that we need more gun control, BTW.

    Justice would be to give Leon Davis Jr a tast of his own medicine. Burn him to death.

    Good news - the assailant is in custody. He is also accused of the murder of two gas station employees last week.

    "I can't imagine someone can do something so cruel," Headley said.
    Time to start. Any number of people can do that, and worse. It's getting tougher to belive that living in a cloud is so fine.

    I don't know that I'm a fan of cruel and unusual punishment. But, like-for-like has a certain appeal, in such cases. He likes fire? He should be obliged.

    Normally I'm not a fan of cruel and unusual punishment either. But when someone like this makes an effort to increase his victims suffering, then perhaps he should suffer the same fate.

    makes you wish someone would have put a tracer round through the gascan while he was holding it.

    The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the child that pregnant woman who was burned was carrying has died.

    It's too bad real justice cannot be done here - a quick, scrupulously fair trial, followed by a public execution on the courthouse steps.

    I'm not going to use the words to describe my feelings on this case. This is, after all, a family-friendly forum.

    Horrible. Absolutely horrible. Setting two innocent women on fire, one of them pregnant? This guy is a monster. Burning him alive would be suitable punishment.
