Some Crimes Are Just Different

...such as kidnaping a 94 year old man to get at his money, and then killing him when you've gotten what you can from him.
(And hacking off his hand after his death, perhaps to convince loved ones to part with money?)

Darrell Edwin Nance; Bruce Clark Whaley Jr., 38; Jessica Leann Lane, you can all be proud of yourselves: you have participated in a crime that will cause revulsion in absolutely anybody and everybody who learns of your acts.

Knoxville News-Sentinel with the grisly details:

RIP John Stewart

Member of the Kingston Trio back in the day, and a solo artist who had a nice little hit with "Gold" in the late 70s, John Stewart has moved on to t he next phase of existence. He was 68.

The WashPost obit seems to think that his biggest claim to fame was writing "Daydream Believer" for the Monkees. Whatever.
