Chicago woman stabbed to death by "enraged male friend" over missing bag of Halloween candy


A Chicago woman died Saturday night after being stabbed multiple times on Halloween, allegedly by a male friend who was angry about a bag of missing candy.

Maria Adams, 49, was stabbed with "several steak knives" Monday afternoon in the home of Ledell Peoples on the South Side, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Peoples, 55, was charged with attempted first degree murder and aggravated domestic battery, but first-degree murder charges are expected to be filed following Adams' autopsy, NBC Chicago reports.

Peoples allegedly "became so enraged over a missing bag of Halloween candy" that he stabbed Adams multiple times, police told NBC. He apparently thought Adams took the candy.

2. What an ignorant shithead.
After age 11 or so, one needs to get over the whole "Halloween candy" thing. Go buy some more, ya putz--it's on sale now.

He won't be doing much trick-or-treating in his jail cell, I'm guessing.

3. Lot of stories lately about insane irrational stabbings.
Last week there was one about a lady who stabbed her boyfriend to death because she thought he was cheating at Monopoly.

That said, statistically speaking it's highly likely that there hasn't been an actual INCREASE in these sorts of incidents, just in their reporting. See "summer of the shark."

4. What the hell is going on with people????
So many acts of senseless violence lately. Is life so cheap that a bag of candy warrants a murderous rage?????
