It was like a old office lake converted into a living space but it wasn't very big It wasn't very big if you look at the pictures compound because of the subject matter probably okay so anyways there's this heated heated dispute going on between these two the people inside and the people outside and police are called night.

Saga alicia knew that marcus's surviving victims. Were in trouble. Following his arrest they had endured unimaginable trauma. After the murders marcus's sons. Were still calling him a great father. It took a long time for them to understand who he really was. But alicia was more concerned with the girls and women that were left behind. She interviewed elisabeth. Marcus's first and only legal wife. She was inside the house during the march twelfth killings and was wracked with guilt that she couldn't save her children and grandchildren. Elizabeth had been tormented for decades. When she married marcus who was an adult at the time she was only fifteen years old.

Abuser that he was the women alicia took into her home. Were also able to rebuild their identities by september. Two thousand nine. Elizabeth was fifty years old and finally filing divorce papers against her husband. Although she still mourned her loss children she learned to stay strong for the family.

America had its eye on chief. Deputy district attorney lisa gamal. The case she was arguing was one of the deadliest. Mass shootings in fresno's history. But the killings were only the frightening climax to a vast and disturbing family saga. Though the crimes were decades in the making the i caught the public's attention on march twelfth two thousand four that afternoon to women stood outside a small fresno home demanding that their children who they claimed were being held captive were returned to them concern. Neighbors eventually called the police standing between them and blocking the doorway when authorities arrived was three hundred. Pound marcus wesson. Marcus was cooperative and calm. Even as the situation grew ugly as officer e loyola's guerrino tried to make sense of the. The two women warned that the people inside the home had a gun and plan to harm their children. Detectives called in a swat team and negotiator to de escalate. The situation that was when marcus announced he was going to say goodbye to the children. He disappeared inside the house and shut the door. S guerrino and the other officers were unprepared for the situation and had no warrant to andrew. The house they waited outside for the swat team. The only suspicious sound they heard from inside was an infant crying but a neighbor said that at three thirty. She heard gunshots from inside westerns home. One of the mothers outside the house screamed for her children. Marcus emerged a few minutes later. His shirt and pants covered in blood. S go rhino. Drew his weapon and charged into the house calling for the children to come out when he yanked the door open to a back room. He found a nightmarish scene. That would haunt him for the rest of his life. Nine bodies were piled on top of each other. Most of them children. They were laid from youngest to oldest each had been killed with a single bullet through the i. The body on top was twenty five year old. Sabrina a twenty. Two caliber pistol was tucked under her arm. S carino's fellow officers had to pull him outside the room screaming. Meanwhile marcus calmly knelt on the ground instructing police to use three handcuffs to accommodate his massive wrists a year later. Marcus lawyer told the jury. He didn't deny the darkest elements of the story. The two eldest victims. Sabrina and seventeen year old. Lisa were marcus's daughters. The seven others the oldest being nine and the youngest only thirteen months old. Were also his children. Marcus wesson had raped and impregnated his own underage daughters and nieces public defender. Ralph torres claimed that marcus was a monster. but he wasn't directly responsible for the deaths. Sabrina had been the killer executing the children her younger sister and then herself the district attorney's office on the other hand believed that marcus should still be held responsible for every death that day. She told the jury hell. Marcus raised his children in his own personal cult. He told the kids. That jesus christ was a literal vampire and that marcus himself was god and god was to be feared he savagely beat his family for any perceived slight to keep them in line. He sent his sons away when they turned eighteen when the daughters turned thirteen he wanted them to himself in a bedroom ceremony. Marcus told the family that nothing could ever separate them. It was better to die than to let police or child welfare. Tear them apart. He repeatedly asked his kids if they were ready to die for him. It might be impossible to know if marcus was the one who eventually pulled the trigger. That awful day. But lisa good moignan believed that the years of manipulation brainwashing and abuse led to those nine deaths. The jury agreed they found marcus. Wesson guilty of nine first degree murders. Along with fourteen counts of rape and molestation. He was sentenced to death. Plus one hundred. Two years in prison. As guards led away. Fifty eight-year-old marcus. His surviving family was left deeply divided. While some breathed a sigh of relief others.

"Him lead. Yes yes wow. We're really getting away from story because I just. I just because prisoners ship. Oh no what are the prison dicks fucking. Nope you need a horse. Exactly you need a horse or song. There's plenty horses around here. Big Is this round of this will make plants bigger than that. Okay then was Charlie Ward Cup. That's about like that. That is giant. This one right here the Super Cup. That's big enough this about seven inches around if you believe that. Okay so moving on now. Moving out now for most of the members of Marcus's family. This way of life was all that they had ever known but two of his Nieces Ruby Ortis and Safina. Solorio WANTED OUT OKAY. But their sister. Rosa solorio remained loyal to Marcus. Marcus eventually agreed that they could go but only if they left their children. Jonathan and Aviv behind home. Desperate to escape the two agreed and got the hill out Yup but as they adjusted to the world outside of Marcus's tight control. They started to understand that what he did to them. What he was still doing to the rest of the family was abusive. See I don't know anything different. So on March twelfth two thousand and four well no one said he was the smartest Jesus in the world. Dude let them go. They're going to figure out that is abusive and call the law. Okay well I'll march twelfth two thousand and four. They gathered several relatives for support and they went back to the Western home against rescued their children. Who are both now seven years old? None of this would have happened if those police would have went inside. None of it knowing nothing would have happened. No there'd be like seemed okay to us. The kids would have been alive really. Do you think away. Oh you talking about the the policeman at the beginning. Yeah Okay yes I agree. None of this would've happened. Yes but it seems like this is too awfully case from ever comes to law enforcement and stuff like that off but I do feel an hour and a half of saying goodbyes. Just a little too much. It should never happen. That's the thing like you don't wait at a person's door for an hour and a half in half while you're there to check on the king kids. Oh okay. Well that's when the shouting match broke out. Marcus remained calm but refused to let ruby or Safina come inside the house to get their children. The women of the household shouted at Them Calling Them Judas horse and bitches and commanding them to bow down to your master Jesus as for Ruby in so fina. They knew they had to get their children out of the house immediately. They were fully aware of the suicide pact. That the family had made yet when the police arrive? They ignored the women's pleased that he was going to hurt the children and they also ignored one of Marcus's son telling them that his father owned a gun. First off the is the did you just far now I did. I don't know I saw you. That is euphoric you did for I. His grandkids are they not. Who's crank it? Marcus yeah okay. We'll some a lot. Almost all of them are nieces daughters and children because remember he had sex. He was having babies by all the nieces and delivers exactly some of grandkids boiled. They would also be his children. He would be grain debt that is also true he would be Granddad and Dan. He's actually. Wow Yeah that's what I'm saying like those were light did the did they not tell the the police that that. Like on the child of Marcus. He has macho. I don't think they went through all of that but still yet. I don't care that they didn't go through all that they have listened to what those people were telling them exactly anyway. So the warnings want work considered enough evidence of a threat to the children's safety for them to force entry to the house bullshit and when the shots rang out. The police said they didn't hear them back. Although many other neighbors did so who you think telling the truth. I don't think so Publi neighbors or till I'm pretty sure if you're standing right outside the door you would hear gunshot even with a silencer. Exactly and I don't think Marcus had a silencer. The case was considered the worst mass murder in Fresno history and the officers who encountered the bloody pile of children's bodies were so traumatized that of course they had to seek counseling. The first on children killed when Marcus Wesson appear to stand trial a year? Later he was different manner entirely. The man who once ruled over. His family like a tyrant wasn't shackles. Once he was a fucking large intimidating man but now without a horrible of women to cater to his every whim he dropped half his weight his dreadlocks. Once were passed US WASTE. Now they were cut to Xeres. He was charged with nine counts of first degree. Murder and fourteen counts of molestation and rape as members of his family testified. Many of whom were still very loyal to the jury came to learn of the horrors. Marcus had impeded on his family. Marcus defense was to claim the heating kill. Anyone can kill anyone that Sabrina had absolutely pulled the trigger murdering the children and then herself the evidence was inconclusive. There were no prints on the gun. But guess what Sabrina. Dna was her body was on top of all the others and the murder weapon. A twenty two Ruger M K to was found underneath. Or how would it be underneath her? She shot herself however it's not known if she lay where she failed or if she was placed. There almost just say. I'm just go along with him here. This is a third party here. I'M GONNA say did She replaced their well. That's brilliant and the same could be said about the gun. The gunshot wound to in. Her head was inconclusive as well. I don't see a woman shooting all those children in the eye anyway. The gunshot wound in. Her head was inconclusive. As well while consistent with a self inflicted wound a shot at close range couldn't be ruled out either and I'm saying he had a fucking hour and a half. So how many gunshots were there? Quite a mini in the police sitting here any bull shit. Ruby and Safina's testimony show that Marcus had complete control over the family and the he had commanded them to commit this at remember all this time they were supposed to suicide. Yeah I feel like maybe not suicide but maybe I'm shoot all Yuma fuck masks. Yes just I you know if the police ever tried to interfere but if he had Sabrina now some remember were very oil. If having Sabrina Kill the children then herself would fit with this pattern of having a woman. Do the hard work. Because he's a shitty ass while he walks away on the other ham family now laters usually kill their families then attempt to blame the crime the WHO mother in the end. It didn't matter to the jury who actually pulled the trigger. Thank give a Shit Marcus. Wesson was found guilty on all counts and on June. Twenty seven. Two Thousand and five. He was sentenced to a hundred and two years for the rape and molestation charges just for the and molestation for the murder of his children and grandchildren. He received the. I'm not GONNA say that. Say The damn death penalty the DP. He was sent to San Quentin prison. Loose which is the nation's largest death-row there. Guess what he was in company of such infamous murderers as Rodney Alcala. The dating name killer Charles in you got. We did a podcast on that. Your member. Richard Davidson Scott Peterson. Who I think we all know emaar then. California Governor Gavin newsom signed Moratorium on the death penalty sparing Marcus Westerns life. Because you know he bear because he felt so bad and spared. All these kids live. You wouldn't have gotten killed. No way still been death. I know but thankfully he will never be eligible for parole. He got tough imprisoned because now not on death row because guess what I would think I would rather him be in regular prison. You know why okay. Yes yes after this. But I'm saying he was on death row in you know what I would rather the death throes be in regular population you know why because they give the because on death row. Are they not in a single sale? They have their own sale to their self correct and they don't have to see the other. They are in the silver twenty three hours a day. I think so men are they getting asked for. When are they didn't beat the hell up there? Not because they're protected. And you know what screw that ship? But Elizabeth and the surviving children are now grown and they have come to see how brainwashed they had been and how delusional psychotic enor- cystic narcissistic drew. Marcus was.

Houston this household three weeks three weenies well on the big ears a little wing. I know right. I'm the one that made you okay. Well anyways I think that we're going to go hit and jump on into these stories. Well you go first. It's Tom because okay. Well mine is all Marcus West. Alka Nath Road. I'm still horses to take. I'm going to have to take a drink of course because my throat so Gupta I heard comes good for your throat. But I'm not trying wildwood anybody. He'd be no that that's what I was told all right. I'm GONNA DO Marcus Wesson. And he's known as the Vampire King of Fresno the date March twelfth. Two thousand four this. He looks a mess picture. This officers are called to a scene. A West Hammond Avenue in Fresno California where a heated argument over custody breaking out. Once they're officer speak to Ruby Ortis and SOFINA Solorio along with some family members who are with them. They are worried to the point of panic. Claiming their children are being held captive inside the rundown office building. They are adamant that the man inside their uncle Marcus Wesson. It's going to hurt their children. So the police knock on the door to speak to Wesson and try to resolve the issue. A titanic which means a big motherfucker of a man with grain dreadlocks down to his waist. Nappy answers the door. How much you weigh fo o about wandered about the bat right? Turn not a follower what he say whenever they answered the door. Well you do miss. He was calm and cooperative. He agreed to turn over the children but he wants to tell him goodbye. I So we asked the officers to wait right there. White Rot there. Let me go us on Google car and closed the door. Nope well the neighbors later. Say that they heard gunshots. But but but the police deny hearing anything or whatever warrants without a warrant or any indication that there's a safety issue. The police don't have the authority to enter the Western House. So they wait however let me tell you they wait for nearly an hour and a fucking half. I think so. I don't care if I hear anything. It don't take an hour and a half to say Gerber no give. He was taking okay. They came to take the children. They came there and check out because people were frantic that he was going to hurt that. You Okay and they go and not to take children there. They were there to check on it. Okay take children or whatever but they not on the door. He answers looking like a fucking mess with dreadlocks down. Conway's loot like he's on crack right as a I'll turn or let me go by and then shut the door. They're like okay less. He can't go back an hour and a half later. They really that makes no sense. Some police officers are stupid whenever they're in training and have to endure the whole tasers test. I think it does something to their brain. Oh so I think so. Okay at least these author because we're tired after nearly an hour and a half full. Wesson walks out the front door but his clothes were covered in blood as he surrenders to the arresting officers. Other officers rush inside the House Am I. I think if it was an hour and a half now definitely you just hope. I'm maybe the Dory I don't care if I would have gotten if you would have gotten in any trouble. They love to make up stuff like some love to make up things about what happens in order for them to search a car or go into a household but yeah something about police insertion a call. This we'd way this what you always talkin. Oh but yeah this time. They can't make up. I don't like this. I can't see they can't make up a fricken story for them to go in and search the Damn House and the neighbors they did he that they heard gunshot and -opoly that but the police didn't hear none whatever their full shit anyway inside despite the sunny afternoon they just kill them children. That's what they did. They killed them. The building is dark and silent against one wall. Several coffins are stacked up then. They enter a back room inside that back room. Covered in blood is a pile of bodies. M- the vessel in any horror. Movie You've learnt never enter evacuating some of which are children each had been shot through the APP but because the bodies were in such a tangle it took many hours before the police could even determine how many victims there were and it was several days before they were all identified. Once they were these were the victims. That were stacked one on top of each other..
"marcus wesson" Discussed on GSMC Weird News Podcast
"And welcome back to the GMC Weird News. PODCAST has now before the break. We were talking about strange unusual. End Weird cults now right before the break. We were talking about colts. They're actually still active in one way or another to this day. Now I wanNA talk about something. That kind of borders the line between Colt in just horrible fair warning. This is a lot so I just I just WANNA put it out there. This is a little bit much. It's Kinda gruesome in. Just just WANNA put that out there. So let's talk about the vampire king. Now I read about this while doing research urge for this podcast in mind blown that this was a thing and I've never heard of it before so this happened in two thousand four. At least the end of this was two thousand and four There was a man named Marcus Wesson fifty seven years old at the time and he believed that Jesus was a vampire and he kind of followed religion of Christianity. Christianity and Vampirism Vampirism Pampers Emperor of Vampirism. I'm not sure But he also thought the Times would be upon them and he had followers but also a lot out of his followers were his children and grandchildren. Now this was very incestuous. It's kind of hard to follow when it comes to that because there were followers followers were also family members because they I don't know he it's a little difficult so so first off he would control them by manipulation and physical abuse. He kept his his daughters and sons. I'm using air quotes. You can't see them but I am his daughters and son separate four. He was worried that they would grow romantic relationships with one another now what He. He did marry his daughters a long time ago. That was the first time I married his daughter like his actual daughter then as it kept going knowing his daughters to him were his future wives so he just kept marrying his daughters I think starting with his actual daughter like it's really messed up and he would come about to have fathered eighteen children through different women about five of whom were young girls. Now this is just this is a lot but I had to throw this in here it because I I'm mind blown that I had never heard of this guy before this is so horrific and I've never heard of it. Just what what. Anyway he wanted to move all the members to Washington and when he said that some some of them rebelled being members that were not family and family They rebelled against him and actually called the police. The police showed up and a man runs out covered in blood. That's him and then it. Just it goes Downhill Hill from there. he ends up killing nine of them When the police when when he found out the police were called and when they arrived nine of them were dead but at least the police were able to get him like this is the big thing is the police were able to get him and he was found guilty on nine counts of murder and several counts of sexual assault? And he's currently on death. Throw now this is a lot to unpack. This is a lot to unpack now. I wanted to throw him in here because he's not your traditional Colt Colt. When you're thinking like the Manson family or some of the ones we talked about earlier where it's large group of people from all over kind of worshipping being one person but it does technically fall into the Colt category? I guess you'd say because he he is. He was basically just controlling these people. And having these people believe that. You Know Christianity and Vampirism. Here ISM was the thing. Jesus Vampire and the in times were coming and all this in and I just feel so bad I feel so bad for anybody who was involved with this and I feel so bad for all of the children including the ones that did not make it and it was a lot of young uh-huh children because they were. It was incestuous so they were constantly having children with him at least the the wives or daughters I as he called them. We're constantly having children with him and it just became this big thing and I do. I do call that a Colt because a lot of colts are that that kind of way there the way that I actually skipped over a lot of colts in this podcast because they are very well known in a lot of them are Dr. You've got the one man leading the group. And he takes all the women as his wives and wants to father children with all the women and that's why it falls within the Colt Line category. I keep saying line but I mean category every time but but I just I looked over a lot of those and did not put a lot of those in here because there were so many that the same. The only reason that I'm putting the vampire king in here is because it's horrific just like the rest of them but I've never heard of him and I honestly think if I brought this up to people that I knew like hey. Have you ever heard about the vampire. King like in Colt fashion and he. They would not know what he is and I really thought it was interesting and we should bring to light that there are people like this out there. I mean there's terrible people out there but there's also great people you guys agree people and I care so much about everything saying that you do and you should always just come. Come come have a conversation with me on twitter or the facebook at GMC GMC underscore weird news. FACEBOOK is GMC. Weird News and I will have straight up conversations with you because you guys armies in people But but I did want to bring to light that this. This guy is a thing but at least he's on death row and Look into get executed. Which I'm very excited excited about like I mean that's house really terrible? Oh I'm so excited about an execution but This this guy was a horrific man and this wasn't even that long ago this was two thousand four. A lot of these were back in the seventies and the eighties. But this is two thousand and four and I just I just wanted to kind of bring to light that this was the thing and I. I'm still GONNA pass up a lot of our other colts that are very similar to this in and the way that there's the man who wants to have children with all the women that he calls his wife's if you ever meet him and he's got a million wives and he wanted to be one of I would just say stay away just high till you're but in the opposite direction because they're guys going to have to be a no-go that's a no from me like for real now. This has been in a little bit of a heavy sediment and we'll move onto some. I mean all colts are heavy. Let's just let's just put that out there. All of this is pretty terrible. But before before keep just like rambling about this empire King Guy I wanNA move on and take a quick break. Take a breather. But you take a breather and we. We'll come back and listen to listen and talk about some different cults. That are not like this one..
