Too Much Love, Fame and Hatred

Extracts from this document...


TOO MUCH LOVE, FAME AND HATRED "In major news today leading American All-star baseballer, Joshua McKendry has been found dead in his Seattle home this morning. McKendry's extravagant life of girls on the go, fast cars and stories of heavy drinking and drugs have seen his life come to an abrupt end. At the moment police have limited suspects, but a police spokesman said today that there would be a serious inquest into the cause of the death." There was the news. Champion baseballer Josh McKendry found dead in his flat. The world was in shock, as he was a major American idol; not only to baseball fans but to sports fans in general. There were rumors that McKendry had links with drugs and binge drinking, none that had serious facts towards them. The world was in mourning, demanding answers; yet no answers were there. Inquests, autopsies and forensic tests were carried out into McKendry's death; and found a series of clues that were seen to be a pivotal point in the finding of the cause of his sudden death. Explicit drugs were found in his body, seen as a drug cocktail of ecstasy, cocaine and a bunch of amphetamines, a deadly dose according to experts. Detectives on the case believed that in pre-examination of the case, that the cause of the death of McKendry was suicide. ...read more.


Eventually Josephine Molloy was arrested and charged with manslaughter, which gave surprise to her as she was devastated about the death of her ex-lover and the fact that she could go to jail for something that she believed she didn't do. During the case in court there was a significant revelation in that one of Kessiah Moran's friends had confessed to police that she was approached by Moran to help her get rid of McKendry because he had 'ruined her life and she wanted his money'. The case was suspended for an indefinite amount of time; yet Molloy was kept in custody. All along while keeping to her word that she was innocent and had no part in the murder. Molloy shockingly came out and confessed that she was forced by Moran to feed the cocktail of drugs to McKendry, otherwise she would kill her. The reason describing a still open gash in her head, due to telling Moran that she would not do it. With a long sharp piercing needle, Moran jabbed and stabbed into the arm of Molloy, twice, and then pushing the contents of heroin that slowly seemed to fill her head with depression. Molloy lost control of her body and became uncoordinated and in a state of sexual frustration where she would do anything that she was told. ...read more.


"Remember bitch, you killed him! You killed him!" Kessiah reminded Josephine with a snicker. Josephine stood there dismayed and what she was looking at. Heroin was trickling through her veins. A feeling that she had never felt before; it was unexplainable. She stood there for realistically a minute or two; too limp to move. Finally as she gathered her thoughts of what she had just done she felt so insecure, lonely, depressed and scared that she just ran. Josephine ran for kilometers until she finally reached her destination. It was not the police station but her home. She cried herself to sleep that night, with two new feelings. The feelings that she was feeling were that of heroin floating through her and the fact that she had just killed someone. The contrasts of feeling were great. While lying in bed, two girls were thinking the totally opposite thoughts. One was scared stiff and did not know what to do; and another had felt like she had just completed an achievement, a goal of some sort. Josephine Molloy was acquitted of the murder of Joshua McKendry; after her confession was seen to a defense to the murder. Josephine testified against the woman she feared to look into her eyes. Vividly she can recall the terror and rage from that night that has temporarily stopped her life. Nightmares are a reoccurrence and daily depression is just anticipated. Kessiah Moran was sentenced to 25 years in prison for her wrongdoings on the night that caused three lives to be deteriorated. ...read more.
