Sometimes at BB, we forget that adult children can be the victims of piss-poor parenting. We tend to get caught up with the little cuties that can’t defend themselves, sometimes forgetting that adult children usually don’t expect their parents to go apeshit and attack them.
Police say that Eugene Maraventano (64), of Goodyear AZ, killed his wife Janet (63) because he thought she might have caught HIV/AIDS from him. He then went on to kill his adult son Bryan (27) because he was concerned about what would become of him because he had no job and no girlfriend. He then tried to kill himself, but failed miserably.
Investigators in court said that the slimeball thought his wife had caught cancer or AIDS off of him. He thought he had AIDS because he frequented prostitutes when he worked on the railway. So instead of going to the doctor’s for a confidential HIV/AIDS test and STI test, his solution was to stab his wife to death. After he disposed of his wife, the slimeball wondered what would become of his son, who was 27, had no job and no girlfriend, and spent all day playing video games. What was he to do? Did he say, “Son, it’s time you got up off your bum and get a job?” Did he sell the gaming console and all the games? Did he kick him out? NO!! He stabbed him to death too!
According to the police record, the slimeball got a 14 inch knife from the kitchen, went upstairs and stabbed his sleeping wife to death. Then he knocked on his son’s door and when he answered, he stabbed him too. The knife ended up on the master bedroom bedside table after he unsuccessfully tried to kill himself. The slimeball was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries (why bother?) and is now being held in jail on a $2 million bond. It’s not known whether he has an attorney or whether his wife did indeed have HIV/AIDS or cancer. The slimeball told police that he and his wife weren’t fighting the night of the killing.
Rest in Peace, Janet and Bryan. There was no excuse to kill you, none at all. Bryan needed some serious discipline to get a job and stop playing video games. The slime ball was too cowardly to fess up to his wife about his concerns and too lazy to help his son. Once a bad breeder, always a bad breeder.
Thanks to Shellee for the tip. This story was so “WTF” that it couldn’t not go on BB.
