  • Police in Philadelphia have arrested a 21-year-old woman who is accused of stabbing her 80-year-old grandfather 41 times and leaving his lifeless body lying naked in a pool of blood in their home.
    Patricia Diocson turned herself in to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Homicide Unit on Monday and was charged with murder in the grisly killing of Robert Girard last week.
    On November 15, Diocson called police saying she arrived at the house she and her grandfather shared in the 2500 block of East Lehigh Avenue at 9pm and found the octogenarian lying dead in the kitchen.

    There was a trail of blood leading to the man's second-floor bedroom and there were no signs of forced entry or any evidence of robbery.
    During the investigation, detectives reviewed surveillance footage from cameras overlooking Diocson's home and discovered that Patricia was the last person to enter the residence before police were summoned to the scene of the crime.
    In addition to murder, Diocson was also charged with possessing an instrument of crime.
    The 21-year-old woman lived with her grandfather and worked at a nearby grocery story.
    When interviewed by detectives, Dioscon reportedly claimed Girard was abusive towards her, but there was no word on the exact nature of the alleged abuse.

    1. He looks exactly the type.
      Yes, you can't judge a book by its cover but it usually takes a word, a sentence or two to understand EXACTLY what is the high and low probabilities.
      In this case the "GRANDFATHER" got off with an easy death. He should have gone to prison where he would have become someone's bitch. The poor girl now has to still live with an irrational world that will never understand what she had gone through.
