The Origins of Her Lust for Blood

Born in 1560 or 61 to Baron George VI Báthory of the Ecsed in Transylvania. Her family included kings, judges and cardinals. This of course contributed to why she got away with what she did for so long. Elizabeth lived most of her life at the Esced castle in Hungary, where it still stands today. A child of inbreeding, Elizabeth suffered from epilepsy “the falling illness” which caused several injuries from her falls throughout childhood.

It is believed that her fascination with blood stemmed from the treatment of her epilepsy, which was to rub the blood of someone who did not have epilepsy on her lips. Another treatment was to give her a mix of a human skull and human blood as her seizures subsided. These frequent and totally useless remedies contributed to her bloodlust and desire for suffering, as well as her superstitious belief that blood would keep her young..

Married at only 15, her husband constructed a torture chamber to her specification in the Csejthe Castle.

Her Unfortunate Victims

Because of the rumours of servant girls being mutilated by the Countess spread across the country, people began to notice.

In this castle, it is reported that she killed over 600 human beings in violent and depraved rituals. Although the tales of her bathing in blood were recorded many years after her death, it is not inconceivable that she would have entertained the idea.

She tortured local peasant girls that she would hire as servants.  After her husband died in early 1600, her impulses were unrestrained. Her cruelty knew no bounds. With her former nurse and the witch for the village, Elizabeth lured and killed over 600 women.

Jamming pins under the nails of the girls was just one of the ways she would torture her victims. Smearing women with honey and leaving them to be eating by nature. She often bit chunks of flesh from the women. Some she would force to cook and eat their flesh.

Bathory believed that human blood would keep her young.

Elizabeth was eventually stopped by her family and convicted of 80 murders. Only Elizabeth escaped execution. Her sentence was to spend the rest of her life in Csejthe Castle, where she died at the age of 54.

Man arrested almost a year after mom of 5 was killed on Maryland hiking trail

HARFORD COUNTY, Md. (TCN) -- A man accused of killing a 37-year-old mother of five on a popular hiking trail was arrested this week after almost a year on the run.

Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler announced in a press conference June 15 that investigators apprehended and arrested Victor Antonio Martinez Hernandez in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on charges of rape and murder in connection with the death of Rachel Morin.

Morin’s boyfriend reported her missing at around 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 5, 2023, after she failed to return home from a hike at the Ma and Pa Trail in Bel Air. She reportedly left for the trail at around 6 p.m. Harford County deputies went to the trailhead and located her vehicle, but Morin was nowhere to be found. Morin’s body was discovered off the trail Aug. 6, 2023, just before 1:10 p.m.

Her cause of death was not released.

Later that month, investigators shared a photo of a man they believed was the suspect in Morin’s killing, but they did not know his identity.

Detectives caught a break in the case on May 30 using DNA evidence that connected the suspect to a March 2023 assault and home invasion in Los Angeles. Gahler said, "On May 20, on what should have been Rachel’s 38th birthday, a poetic coincidence, or perhaps Rachel’s own divine assistance, our investigators uncovered a lead that led us to this day."

According to Gahler, Martinez Hernandez is from El Salvador and came to the United States illegally in February 2023 after allegedly killing a woman there in January 2023.

"We suspect Rachel was not his first victim," Gahler said.

There is a warrant for his arrest in El Salvador, and he also is facing charges in Tulsa.

Martinez Hernandez will be extradited to Maryland from Oklahoma.

Gahler said at the press conference, "Hopefully, he will never have the opportunity to walk free again."

New York man found guilty of killing his neighbor and hiding his body

SANDY CREEK, N.Y. (TCN) -- Prosecutors recently announced the conviction of a 64-year-old man who fatally shot his neighbor amid a dispute and tried to conceal his body under piles of clothing.

According to a June 11 news release from the Cayuga County District Attorney’s Office, a jury found Alva Parsons guilty of the second-degree murder in the death of Charles "Chuckie" Rothenburg, as well as second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, tampering with physical evidence, and first-degree coercion. Parsons faces up to 25 years to life in prison and is expected to be sentenced on Aug. 2.

Prosecutors argued Parsons fatally shot Rothenburg on the morning of June 27, 2022. According to Syracuse.com, the victim and his girlfriend lived in a camping trailer next to Parsons’ home. Rothenburg and Parsons allegedly got into a dispute in the defendant’s home, during which Parsons shot him in the neck. The district attorney’s office said the "bullet lodged in the victim’s brain, killing him."

Following the victim’s death, Parsons reportedly dragged Rothenburg’s body into a bedroom and hid him underneath a pile of clothes. Prosecutors said Parsons also "threatened an eyewitness with physical injury to prevent her from leaving his residence."

An individual requested a welfare check on Rothenburg, and investigators reportedly searched for two days until receiving a tip that he might be in the defendant’s home.

During the trial, prosecutors said they presented evidence, including photographs, text messages from Parsons’ phone, DNA evidence, and police officer testimony. Eyewitnesses also provided statements in court.

The victim reportedly leaves behind three children.

Elderly woman with head trauma found dead in condo buried under a pile of household items

NORTHAMPTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (TCN) -- A 49-year-old man in custody in Washington, D.C., on suspicion of assaulting an officer reportedly confessed to authorities that he killed his mother in Pennsylvania.

According to the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, on June 16, Washington, D.C., Metro Police requested a welfare check on 82-year-old Dolores Ingram. Metro Police had taken her son, William Ingram, into custody for allegedly assaulting an officer and damaging a police vehicle, during which he told authorities he had killed his mother.

Northampton Police responded to a condominium on Beacon Hill Drive, where they found Dolores Ingram deceased. Prosecutors said officers noticed blood on a windowsill, the walls, window, and floor. The furniture in the home "appeared in disarray," according to the district attorney’s office.

Police forced entry into the home, where they observed the living room had been cleared out except for a pile of clothes, towels, linens, furniture, and other similar household items to the side. Prosecutors said police removed the items and couch, and an officer noticed a foot, "which felt cold to the touch." The officer reportedly "noted that there appeared to be no signs of life."

Investigators identified the victim buried underneath the items as Dolores Ingram and determined she had suffered severe head trauma.

According to the district attorney’s office, a witness said they awoke to loud banging at around 1 a.m. on Saturday, June 15. The witness reviewed her home camera system shortly after 1:40 a.m., which reportedly showed "William Ingram running out of the condo shirtless." He allegedly went back to the condo a minute later before eventually leaving at approximately 10 a.m. wearing a shirt and carrying a duffel bag. The witness said she had not seen him since.

Police found William Ingram’s car in the condominium parking lot, but they noticed the victim’s vehicle was missing, prosecutors said. Investigators used license plate readers and determined Dolores Ingram’s vehicle had been driven from the home. According to the district attorney’s office, police found the key fob for William Ingram’s car near the victim’s body.

William Ingram remains in custody in Washington, D.C., and officials charged him on suspicion of stealing his mother’s vehicle. Prosecutors said additional charges will be filed.

12-year-old girl found dead in Houston bayou after sneaking out of her house

HOUSTON (TCN) -- Homicide detectives are conducting an investigation after a 12-year-old girl was found deceased in a shallow waterway after she reportedly snuck out of her house.

According to Houston Police Lt. Stephen Hope, on Monday, June 17, at around 6 a.m., a passerby called 911 to report finding a body in the bayou near Rankin Road. Houston Police Department detectives and a dive team arrived at the scene and recovered the girl’s body. The Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy to positively identify her and determine cause and manner of death.

Hope said although the positive identification is pending, investigators "do believe it’s going to be a 12-year-old female that snuck out of her residence late last night and ended up in the waterway."

Detectives obtained surveillance footage but are still working to follow up on leads and new information about what led to the girl’s death.

The victim reportedly left her home at around 10 p.m. and her family allegedly had no idea.

According to Hope, the girl was not reported missing.

Detectives are still working to uncover details about her death, but Hope said this is considered a homicide investigation because a "12-year-old found in a waterway is suspicious."

Houston Police Chief Larry Satterwhite said the girl’s mother is "devastated," adding, "Her little girl is gone."
