Was a $500 loss and Carol’s death worth a lengthy prison sentence?

Reader “Cassandra” responds to Carol Thomas Kidnapped, Murdered in Missouri.

“Carol was a friend of mine, the first friend i had when i moved to
missouri.Yes she was involved with drugs and shes been ripping people
off for quite some time now, but she was supposd to have a life ahead
of her instead she was brutally beaten 3 people and then murdered over
500 dollars.

“I knew all the parties involved and none of them had their
head on straight, but nobody deserves to have their life taken over 500
dollars worth of dope. Didnt the convict ever think that they would
rather be out 500 dollars rather than spend the rest of ther life in
prison, because thats what they deserve, too bad missouri doesnt have
the death penalty…

Alex Martin

If you’re on the nominating committee for the Criminal Hall of Fame and are trolling for potential inductees, you’re in the wrong place, my friend. These are our Stupid Criminals of the Week.
5. Alex Martin
OK, kids, new rule, courtesy of a really dumb guy in Florida: When trying to pawn stuff you stole from a friend, go at least two counties over.
When Alex Martin walked into a Fort Myers pawn shop recently, he was shocked, and probably pretty bummed, to be greeted by his friend Keith Miller. It didn’t take long for Miller to notice his fishing rods — the ones that had recently gone missing from his garage — in Martin’s very red hands. “I said, hey, Alex how you doing?” Miller told a Florida TV station. “He looked at me like a deer in the headlights.”
After trying unsuccessfully to convince a chuckling store audience that he’d actually borrowed the rods from Miller, Martin ran for it. But, as you may have guessed, he wasn’t smart enough to elude police for long. He was arrested and charged with grand theft. Criminal justice experts believe Martin has no idea what any of these words mean.

Kate Waring vanished in June after dining with two friends

UPDATE: Police have made another arrest in the murder of Kate. See update after the jump…

After going to the gym, a drug store, and dinner at a Japanese steakhouse with friends, Kate Waring disappeared in the night of June 12. The well-to-do woman from Charleston, South Carolina had drug problems in the past, but this didn’t look like a relapse. Her mom said she’d vanished without her clothes or her daily medicine.

When her father Thomas Waring filed a missing persons report, he said something strange had happened between his daughter and two friends, Ethan Mack and Heather Kamp. She was scared of the pair, but dad didn’t say why.

Now it turns out that Mack and Kamp had dinner with her that night at the steakhouse. Though they claim to have dropped her off later in the evening, the evidence is starting to say otherwise…

“Little Japanese” did time in an American prison for extortion

​Vyacheslav Ivankov — aka “Little Japanese” — was leaving the Thai
Elephant in Moscow in July when a sniper shot him three times in the stomach. The 69-year-old Russian Mafia boss spent months in the hospital before succumbing to his wounds last week.

It was a fitting end for the Mafioso whose career spanned four decades, two continents, and even endured communist rule. Police believe he was murdered for trying to settle a beef between two warring Moscow crime factions.

During his career, Ivankov specialized in gun-running, racketeering, drug
trafficking and extortion, both in Russia and the U.S. He spent 11 years in a Russian prison on a robbery conviction in 1980. A year after he was released in 1991, he moved to America — but didn’t end his criminal ways…

Misty Croslin, a serious piece of work

UPDATE: See Ronald Cummings, Misty Croslin Arrested for Drug Trafficking.

The Haleigh Cummings case just gets weirder and weirder — at least for the players involved. Police in Palatka, Florida say Misty Croslin-Cummings, recently divorced from Haleigh’s father Ronald Cummings, was robbed Monday night in the parking lot of an apartment building.

According to the police report, “two or three black males
jumped on Cummings taking her purse and pulling her out of the
vehicle.” Croslin fought her way back into the car and the driver sped off. But a third woman who was with them chased after the men. Cops found a

“crushed pill bottle with unknown
pills inside” at the scene.

One of the women with Croslin told police that they’d come to the apartment building to buy drugs. No one was arrested, but this latest episode doesn’t bode well for the last person to see Haleigh before her disappearance. Croslin’s already failed a polygraph test, and two weeks ago she was stopped in a road rage incident. This week she was divorced from her husband of only seven months.
