Being the boss here at BB comes with one major disadvantage. When there’s a story that no one else can handle becuase it’s so disturbing it falls to me to post. Why? Well, I think it has something to do with that I’ve been blogging about stories like this for so long that I’ve unfortunately have become kind of numb to some of the horrors that find their way into our inbox. This is one of those stories but it even affected my cold black heart so I can only imagine how it affected the other writers here at BB.
I’ve been sitting on this story for a couple of days now knowing that it’s been sitting in my inbox. I used the excuse that I had other posts for my other blogs to write but I still knew that it was sitting in there waiting for its turn to be posted. When I finally cleared the other e-mails and it became time to post this story for the first time in a long time I just didn’t want to do it.
For the past 9 hours I’ve been trying to type out the words to what happened but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I kept staring at the blank white empty space within WordPress trying to think of something to say that would do this story justice. I kept getting up from my desk to take way too many cigarette breaks in order to organize my thoughts. Eventually I gave up and laid down for what I thought was only going to be 30 minutes. That turned into 3 hours. It seems that my body shut itself down over the anxiety of posting this story.
I even thought about passing on this story but so many people sent in tips that there was no way I couldn’t do this story. Even now I’m still hesitant to do so but it is unfortunately a story that needs to be known to show that there are people who are purely evil living among us.
The evil in question is one 30-year-old Jeremiah Lee Wright of Thibodaux, Louisiana. He’s been charged with and allegedly confessed to the brutal murder of his 7-year-old son, Jori Lirette. Jori had cerebral palsy, was confined to a wheelchair and required the use of a feeding tube. Wright had sometimes referred to his sin as an ‘inanimate object’.
Police say that Wright bludgeoned his son before decapitating him. Family members have said that Wright used a meat cleaver and decapitated his son over the kitchen sink. Jori’s mother had left the house to get her vehicle repaired. Wight allegedly left Jori’s head in the driveway so she would see it and ‘feel stupid’ but gave no further explanation about that.
A passerby saw Jori’s head in the driveway and called police. When authorities arrived Wright tried telling them that Jori’s dismembered body was a CPR dummy and part of a joke. Shortly thereafter police say that he confessed to killing his son. Jori’s body was found nearby in a white trash bag. His feet and a hand had also been severed from his body. Wright is also believed to have said that he was tired of taking care of Jori.
I couldn’t possibly understand what it must be like to take care of a child that requires such attention as Jori did but I do know this. You love your children no matter what their medical faults may be. There is absolutely no reason for what happened other than pure selfishness. What could Jori have possibly prevented this lowlife from doing except for possibly drinking a case of Old Milwaukee on the porch?
Prosecutors have not said yet whether or not they will seek the death penalty but with this being Louisiana and the brutality of the crime I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t.
As y wife is fond of saying the death penalty is too easy for a scumbag like this. You feel a pin prick and then you go to sleep. Even though that sleep is forever that’s still not good enough for what this jackhole did.
If it was up to me ‘they’ would decapitate the bastard but not in a quick way like a guillotine. The way I would have ‘them’ do it is to put the top of his shiny dead on a deli slicer and then just keep slicing off layer after layer of his diseased skull until his neck was a bloody stump.
Some may say that I’m just as sick as Wright for wishing that kind of violence on him. Maybe I am but Jori committed no crime but was brutally executed anyway. Why should his killer be treated any better.
Thanks to everyone who sent in tips.
