Furry Murder Plot (Yeah, it sounds exactly what you're probably thinking)

22 July 2009 - 05:51 PM


Son 'in plot to kill his parents'
21 July 2009

By Jenny Simpson

A man plotted to kill his adoptive parents with the help of a friend he met on the internet, a court has heard.
Christopher Monks, 24, wanted Shaun Skarnes to murder his parents Christopher and Elizabeth Monks while they slept and then perform an extreme sex act on him, Preston Crown Court was told.

The bisexual pair are alleged to have hatched the plot after meeting on an internet site about "Furries" – people who pretend to be animal characters and share sexual role-playing fantasies.

Skarnes, 19, visited Monks' family home in Preston Road, Clayton-le-Woods, near Chorley, in February after weeks of chatting to him online.

The two played computer games before Skarnes left, telling Mr and Mrs Monks he was getting the train home to Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, and thanking them for having him round.

Monks then watched a DVD with his parents while Skarnes waited for hours in a playpark nearby until he received a text from his friend, telling him the couple were asleep in the four-bedroom house they shared with their son.

Mr Monks woke in the early hours of the morning to find Skarnes beside his bed, clutching a kitchen knife.

He grappled with the intruder and yelled for help from his wife, who was sleeping downstairs.

Dad-of-three Mr Monks told the court: "I thought he was trying to kill me. My wife tried to hit him with a stick but it broke.

"She then began to talk to him in a calming way. At that point, his manner changed completely."

The couple went downstairs to find a police officer on the doorstep, who had responded to Mrs Monks' 999 call.

Mr Monks was left with bruised arms, a cut palm and bite marks.

Monks, who was downstairs during the attack, was initially treated as a witness but then later arrested.

Prosecutor Dennis Watson QC told the court that while Skarnes carried out the attack, ex-Runshaw College student Monks stayed downstairs, deleting "incriminating" text messages.

Mr Watson said Monks had talked about his sexual desire for his penis to be bitten off in online chatroom discussions.

He told the jury: "It may seem extreme that he wanted his penis bitten off, but there is ample evidence from websites he visited and conversations with Shaun Skarnes that this was a deeply held interest and one he found sexually stimulating.

"It seems that Skarnes was to receive no money for killing Mr and Mrs Monks but the prospect of biting off Monks' penis. This was the climactic act of the conspiracy."

Elizabeth Monks told the court that her adopted son was a quiet boy who never lost his temper and did well at his temping job at an educational training centre, where she also works.

Her husband added: "We have no doubt that (Christopher) did not intend to go to this extreme.There is no-one in our closest circle of friends who is not shocked at what has happened."

Skarnes, of Sutton Way, Ellesmere Port, and Monks both deny conspiracy to murder Mr and Mrs Monks.

If the murder plot was true, then...

USB KVM switch suggestions

Anyone have experience dealing w/ these things? I need to hook up 3 servers to it so they can all be accessed by one station. I typically use one computer at any given time so this is new to me. Any helpful suggestions appreciated.

Build My Desktop PC

08 January 2009 - 03:08 AM

Ok, my desktop bit the dust thanksgiving weekend and I've been alternately busy w/ work & lazy to build a new one until now. Since I had a work laptop, I could make do for basic internet functions. But now that I have some free time/motivation to build one but I haven't kept up w/ the pace of technology so I'm a bit behind the times. So this is where CAG comes in. Ideally, I'd like a desktop suitable for gaming, p2p downloading, and the occasional graphic rendering. My budget is $1000 (give or take). This doesn't include a monitor (which I'm getting two 22 in. Acer monitors I've had my eye on). This does include a cpu, mobo, video card(s), sound card, SATA hard drive(s), optical drives (one for burning, one for reading/source drive for burner), and case. A few things I think I'm solid on (unless you can effectively argue otherwise) are the video card (gtx 260 core 216) and the cpu (quad-core Q9550 Yorkfield). Now I know the i7 920 is cheaper, however, considering what other things are needed to support the cpu, I think it'll be more expensive overall and would cut into my bottom line. I'm planning on have more than 4gig in the future but will wait for Win7 instead of going for Vista64 so I'll settle for 3gig right now and XP Pro. So, any suggestions? Fire away.* Help me Obi-wan CAGobi, you're (one of) my only hope(s)!

*if I don't reply right away, it's cuz I don't visit CAG as often as I'd like anymore but I WILL reply... eventually.
