A Louisiana man is accused of decapitating and dismembering his disabled 7-year-old son and leaving the boy's head near the street so the child's mother would see it -- a killing that brought seasoned police officers to tears, authorities said Monday.
A stuffed bear and a handwritten note are seen outside the home where seven year old Jori Lirette, who was disabled and wheelchair bound from cerebral palsy, was found decapitated and left on the street in Thibodaux, Monday, Aug. 15, 2011.
Jeremiah Lee Wright, 30, of Thibodaux has confessed to killing Jori Lirette, Police Chief Scott Silverii said. He said Wright was booked with first-degree murder and was held Monday in lieu of $5 million bond.

Would we even have been reading this if he was a Moose-Limb?
The POS isn’t worth the syringe that he will get.
Although not sad enough to stop me from deliberately misunderstanding the headline, and slandering a similarly named person far and wide.
If he makes it that far.
“He said when he put his head out by the side of the road it was so the mother would see it when she came by,” Silverii said. He said Wright’s only explanation for doing so was “just that he wanted her to feel stupid when she saw the head.”
And then what was your plan?
this guy is a little low on the IQ scale.
That is a high probability. Angola doesn’t have the reputation it does for nothing.
The Ponderosa is nowhere I’d want to be.
Just to make it abundantly clear, this Jeremiah Wright has nothing to do with, and no connection at all to, the famous Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church in Chicago.
“Just to make it abundantly clear, this Jeremiah Wright has nothing to do with, and no connection at all to, the famous Jeremiah Wright of Trinity United Church in Chicago.”
Too late. It makes too great of a sound-bite to let it go...
How will Obama explain Jeremiah Wright cutting off his son’s head?...Details at 11.
We play into the hands of those who want to paint us as crazed nutballs when we pussyfoot with stories like this.
Yes, deplore this because the criminal is a depraved monster. But the fact that he happens to be named Jeremian Wright is completely irrelevant.
As another poster has said, Angola awaits. This monster will wish he were never born. I don’t even give him a week. They’ll know what to do.
Yep. One of my favorite examples is Joel Durham, the 18-year-old from Metairie who shot and killed a McDonalds manager.
Convicted of first-degree murder, Durham was killed by Angola guards during an escape attempt in 1999. In the five years or so that he spent at Angola, Durham was apparently raped mercilessly - the story around the Jefferson Parish courthouse was that he had to wear adult diapars. Someone there had seen a copy of a prison medical report in '98 or so, and word just sort of got around.
That precious angel is in the arms of Jesus. His killer will get his in prison (please Lord).

“The POS isnt worth the syringe that he will get.”
We will get it too. Louisiana has several capital homicide offenses, but about the only one ever applied is with respect to a child victim.
This bastard will end up dead, the usual Louisiana professional bleeding heart class notwithstanding.
I am just sick about this. I can not immagine the little boys horor in his last few minutes of life.
Rope. Reusable and more painful.
To be followed by more evil:
The people who will try to ‘explain and excuse’ him.
The LAWYERS who will DEFEND him.
As a woman I am also appalled by women who mate with, and stay with, men they know to be evil.
NO WAY I believe anger and evil like this in a person could not have been known by the mother.

“The people who will try to explain and excuse him.
The LAWYERS who will DEFEND him.”
The system would break-down without defense lawyers who are willing to represent those accused of horrendous crimes.
Those guys are not evil, they are simply doing their job.
Not to cast aspersions on the officers involved in the photo, but the look on the faces of all three of them seem to say, “If I could get away with it, I’d kill you myself, you POS.”
Utterly contemptible individual.
I’ve heard stories about Angola: none of them very nice.
Enjoy your time there, buddy.
Note the vest the perp is wearing. Taking precautions by the officers I assume.
I understand lawyers defending people who claim innocence. I do NOT understand a human being who tries to get someone free who ADMITS guilt.
People who defend the admittedly guilty aren’t interested in justice-IMO- they are engaging in a mental ‘game’. Who is the slickest attorney, who can manipulate the law the best. Also- high-profile cases like heinous murder are great for attention.
Somewhere in there, the actual crime is IRRELEVANT.
I don’t know how any attorney, who defends someone he KNOWS is guilty, can live with themselves.
Maybe the ‘system’ should be changed so the ADMITTEDLY guilty condemn themselves-bypassing the expenses incurred defending them against facts. My opinion.

>> guilty condemn themselves-bypassing the expenses incurred >> defending them against facts. My opinion.
I understand your emotions. However, there is a reason for our system and the due process.
There was a time and a place in history where “ADMITTEDLY guilty condemned themselves” to death, spectacularly, in front of a staged “judges” and court “audience”.
They condemned themselves because they were coerced to by mental physical torture, and or torture, or threat of torture to their family members.
That place was Stalin’s USSR.
Which is why we have a due process for even the most heinous, confessed criminals.
It used to be that justice was swift in these cases. He would be fried within a few weeks if this was a few years ago. He confessed. The British papers have the gory details that our pussified papers refuse to share.
If the name matched any well known conservative you can bet your @ss it would be plastered in the headlines of every paper in the nation the next day.
Mr. Martel, nice little fib there. My father Peter Mule Sr was housed with joel in fact they worked in the woodshop together. but you did not tell the whole story. First of all that leo Kern, the REAL reason he was killed is because his father was another Bernie Manoff. He stole alot of money from alot of different investors for Robert Harvey,an atty in new orleans. Joe Joe’s orders was to make it look like a robbery. The reason Harry Lee got so involved was to protect Mr. Daniel Oppenihiemer who was the brains behind the whole scam in which, after he could not pass his bar exam, used the money to build what is now State Farm Acceptance. A
I am a bit intrigued by this "rest of the story" though; despite cellmate stories not being trusted sources of information. I know that part of your father's information is correct: there is indeed a Daniel A. Oppenheimer involved with American Thrift & Finance Plan, the successor of State Farm Acceptance. Hmm.
More info is needed. Do you happen to know the full name of the scam artist (the elder Kern)? Also, who is "Joe Joe"? That sounds familiar, but it's been some years since I lived in that area. I can't quite place the nickname.
There was always something about that murder that didn't seem to add up - but if the robbery was just for show, it was certainly successful. The one part that really doesn't fit is the victim. Why was the son of a wealthy con artist working his butt off as a McDonald's manager?
If you have more details, please reply by private message. Don't need to hijack this thread any further.
I just found this thread and am infuriated by the previous poster. I am Leo Kern’s brother, Tim. My father, also named Leo, is a retired pharmacist, not a Ponzi Scheme operator. My father worked for over fifty years and retired at the age of 75. My brother was killed by an individual that was pure evil. At young age Durahm began his psychopathic adventures by torturing animals. He graduated to humans and the result is that my brother is dead.
I invite the previous poster to write me. I would gladly meet with and explain the circumstances that lead to the murder of my brother.
First of all little pete started a story,he is upset because bobby jindal won’t sign his father’s pardon and if he does not I will expose both Jindal and the late Harry Lee for what they really are. it’s true but let allow me to finish it. Yes that Kern kid was killed because of stolen money, that Durham guy also “hit” a woman (Patricia Rupp) at 208 Perrin Dr. in Arabi on wednesday novemeber 6th 1991, it was very cold that morning I remember. That was related to this case because Patricia Rupp was a book keeper that helped Danny and Kern steal the money, this is why she was targeted, the pipe bomb used had a mercury switch, it was placed in a box with mardi gras beads and the saints logo on it, this is information that was never released to the public and if you worked at the court house in jefferson parish what I am about to talk about will blow your mind. I am not sure why the kid worked at mcdonalds, maybe he wanted to own a franchise or not be a thief like his father’s friends. If you remember (I won’t say the judge’s name) but he had a typist by the name of “Joelle” who had a son who always got in some kind of petty trouble and she would have the judge fix it, ok, now your starting to see who “joe joe” is, also there was a red head girl who “dated” the kern boy, she was suppose to bring him to City Park the day before or that thursday if I remember. The kid was suppose to be killed in city park. The hit was moved because Harry Lee wanted to control the investigation, so the red head girl went in there to get that kern boy to leave the store but he choose to stay and work, so Joel went in and killed him there. Gurd and Danny Oppenheimer played a huge role in this but I won’t go any further. I will say with my old age I do regret most of my past, it’s a shame lots of people got both hurt and killed by pardoned inmates who “worked” for Edward Edwards and Harry Lee, one of them got arrested for another murder about a year ago but the name of ROy Garland, Roy use to live in kenner, he’s in the jefferson parish jail last I heard for another murder, maybe you should talk to him .......
Tim... I did not know your brother but I am sorry for what happen, I also can tell you that your father did dabble in investments but he was not a crook, he was used by some evil people. again I am sorry for your lost
just follow the dots... Harry Lee announced that he “wanted to be there when they stuck him” right after that Burl Cain became warden, this was to keep that Durham kid silent, Harry Lee and Burl Cain was real close, this is Louisiana Politics, not hard to believe, I can go on and on about the Kern murder and other murders (one involving Weiner Cort furniture) by a Drago....
