If You Have To Google The Best Way To Murder Somebody Then You Probably Weren't Meant To Murder Anybody
Metro- David Russell, 25, met Maricar Benedicto, 19, online in 2009 over their mutual love of heavy metal.
Miss Benedicto flew to the UK from California to meet Russell, but the night before she arrived he searched for ‘hand-to-hand contact’, ‘ways to kill someone with your bare hands’, ‘how to kill someone and get away with it’, ‘best knife to kill someone’ and ‘how to knock someone unconscious’.
He lured her to woodland saying he had a present for her, told her to put her head back and hold out her palms, then slit her throat with a bread knife.
When she pulled away, Russell throttled her and screamed ‘Why won’t you die? You’ve ruined my life forever.’
Poor guy. He wanted nothing more than to kill someone, but he just wasn't gifted with the natural ability to do so. He had the look of a murderer, the musical tastes of a murderer, the will of a murderer, and literally none of the instincts necessary to achieve his goal. Say what you want about the kid's mental health and moral compass, but he had a dream and he did everything he could to achieve it. Unfortunately, the second he had to take to the internet to educate himself on the most simple aspects of homicide he should have realized that manslaughter wasn't in the cards. I can understand Googling the best places to rid yourself of a dead body, but 'ways to kill someone with your bare hands'? 'Best knife to kill someone with'? 'How to knock someone unconscious'? I've never had a thirst for blood in my life, and I could give educated answers to all those questions.
You don't become a feared executioner if you can't figure out on your own that the most deadly knife is the sharpest one. That's like LeBron James picking up his first basketball and needing a 'How-To' guide to make a lay-up. He would have never made it to the NBA without that most basic of intuition. No one taught Bill Gates how to turn on a computer or Jenna Jameson how to suck dick. Some people are just born with certain skills and some are not. The guy that clearly can't follow search results and used a bread knife to try to slit someone's throat? Probably meant to be more of a lover than a slayer, regardless of the maniacal thoughts constantly rummaging through his head.
