'I’m going to destroy you' - Woman kills mother for leaving her out of will
The woman also confessed to ransacking her mother's home and smashing picture frames before she admitted that she beat up her 85-year-old mother
A woman from Florida is accused of beating up her elderly mother to death with her bare hands no less.
According to reports, this all happened because the mother did not put the daughter in her will and gave everything to her other children instead. 53-year-old Gabriela Perero allegedly lost it on July 12 at Luisa Perero, her mother's, condo in Fort Lauderdale when she found out that her siblings would be getting her share of the family inheritance as well. Perero later told detectives that she got very angry at her mom and told her: “You destroyed my life, so I’m going to destroy you,” before she beat her into a coma. The woman also confessed to ransacking her mother's home and smashing picture frames before she admitted that she beat up her 85-year-old mother.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, Perero told the investigators that she started by shoving her mom to the floor and then proceeded to yank her arms, "rip her skin off" and finally squeezing her by the neck. After that, she told the investigators that she washed off her mother's blood and arranged her on the bed before calling 911. It was reported that she told the authorities she did not want her mother to die.
The 85-year-old women spent an entire day in the hospital in a coma. She finally died at the Broward Health Medical Center later on. Perero has been charged with premeditated murder and aggravated battery on a person who is 65 years of age or older.
In another case associated with inheritances, court files that were unsealed in June showed how a man fatally shot his father and critically wounded his mother just so that he could get his inheritance at a quicker pace. 25-year-old Duong Jimmy Trung Luu is being held at the Santa Clara Mail Jail, without bail, on suspicion of murder and attempted murder in the gruesome attack that took place on May 20 at a mobile home park on Senter Road. 27-year-old Madison Muong, his roommate and alleged accomplice to the crime, was also held on the same charges.
San Jose Police Sergeant John Barg wrote in a report that a mutual acquaintance of the two men told investigators that they had "separately confessed... that they killed Jimmy Luu's parents." The acquaintance also told the authorities that both the suspects had individually given details about the crime they had committed and that only someone who had been involved in it, like them, would know the specifics. Barg wrote: "Jimmy Luu and Madison Muong also told the associate that the motive behind the crime was financial. They hatched a plan to murder Jimmy Luu’s parents in order to collect and split his inheritance."
On May 20, at around 3:15 a.m., the authorities were called to the Spanish Cove Mobile Home Park after they received reports of a shooting. They went inside the home and found the 68-year-old mother on a couch with a gunshot wound to her face. She was immediately rushed to a hospital nearby and was listed as being in critical condition at the time. Officers discovered the body of 70-year-old Thao Quoc Luu in the rear bedroom. He died from a gunshot wound to his chest. Both the parents had been shot once each and cops recovered two 9 mm shell casings from the scene.
Initially, the police thought that the incident was a murder-suicide but then when the investigation progressed, new information along with information from the acquaintance, pointed to the two suspects who both lived in an apartment in San Jose. The SJPD Covert Response Unit went to the apartment with a warrant two days later and found a handgun that was believed to have been used in the shooting along with clothes and other evidence that connected the men to the crime.
