Hammer Killings of Two Women

Police tape background

In May 2019, a Michigan man murdered 32-year-old Julie Ann Mooney of Williamston and 26-year-old Kaylee Ann Brock of Holt.  The man admitted to the authorities that he had murdered both using a hammer. The really shocking part is the man was on his way to kill two more women using the hammer.


At the time of the murders, the Michigan man had taken pictures of the bodies and had sent crazy messages to his ex-girlfriend letting her know he was getting rid of some of his dear friends.

According to the AP, the man said that "he loved her so he spared her, and she would know what that meant soon."
