Man dismembers girlfriend in (French) Quarter; cooks body parts
suicide note in the pocket of a man who jumped off the Omni Royal Orleans Hotel late Tuesday led police to the grisly scene of his girlfriends murder, where they found her charred head in a pot on the stove, her legs and feet baked in the oven and the rest of her dismembered body in trash bag in the refrigerator, according to police and the couples landlord.

The man, Zackery Bowen, a tall man in his mid 20s with long blond hair, claimed in the note to have killed his girlfriend, Adrian Addie Hall, on Oct. 5, according to police. Hall was also in her mid 20s.

In the five-page note, Bowen claimed he strangled Hall in the bathtub, then dismembered her body before taking it in pieces to the kitchen, police said. An autopsy conducted today shows that Hall was in fact manually strangled, police said. It also appears that Halls body was cut up after she died, police said.

--snip---

Bowen was from Los Angeles, but apparently had lived in the New Orleans area for quite a while, police said. Friends said he served in the military in Iraq and Afghanistan and displayed both pride and bitterness over that experience.

1. The Iraq War claims another one.
And I understand Afghanistan ain't no picnic either.

How do we undamage the people we have caused to endure this? Or do we just send out flatbed trucks to pick up the suicides every morning......a little like they did in the plague?

12. Undamage them?
As I recall, their brothers in arms can help, as well as wives and children. The former are able to listen with understanding as all the fear and rage and shame are talked out and the latter keep them grounded.

That's what I saw saving Vietnam vets. They will always be damaged, but the above can help them manage the rest of their lives.

8. Another shot...


Addie Hall and Zackery Bowen prepared dinner on Wednesday evening in Ms. Hall's darkened apartment in the French Quarter. Both Ms. Hall and Mr. Bowen, who work in the area, stayed as Hurricane Katrina approached New Orleans. They have neither a car nor any plans to evacuate despite a mandatory order to leave.

She certainly had a joi de vivre: Some holdouts seem intent on keeping alive the distinct and wild spirit of this city. In the French Quarter, Addie Hall and Zackery Bowen found a unusual way to make sure that police officers regularly patrolled their house. Ms. Hall, 28, a bartender, flashed her breasts at the police vehicles that passed by, ensuring a regular flow of traffic.

6. War does NOT make you cook your girlfriend.
This guy was a frigging kook, and probably was a kook before he joined the service (if that's even verified to be true).

I'm reminded, rather horrifically, of that line from FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE WHISTLE STOP CAFE (a work of genius by Fannie Flagg) :

"The secret's in the sauce..."

13. Thank god she was cute. Now Nancy Grace and Rita Cosby will cover this!
Edited on Wed Oct-18-06 03:31 PM by IanDB1
If she was ugly, it woudln't be news now, would it?

That's the difference between tragedy and today's brand of tragedy-porn.

17. But they're BOTH dead, no fun for Nancy or Rita
You have to have a live person to beat the living shit out of, they've got to try and convict before the gavel is ever pounded...to dog mercilessly through the investigative, arrest, detainment, and trial phases, to cheer if the accused is convicted, to prance and strut if they get the death penalty, and to finagle a seat with the family of the murdered girl to witness the execution...!

This will get a short cut on their shows, but I'll bet they're pissed that guy took a dive off the hotel....

19. You Are Right, Sadly.
Unattractive victims just don't make the news. There is no justice for "lesser" people.

15. Rove did it!
The DoD has been implanting remote mind control devices in select troops' brains, allowing the White House to take direct control of them if the need arises. It looks like Karl decided the nation needs a new sensational news item to distract from Republican scandals and the Iraq bloodbath. Really. The wino who sleeps behind my building told me all about it.
