half woman, half fish, entirely fatal; the sea sisters who lure men to their deaths with such beautiful grace they’re feared for their ability to be loved.
Our song will tear open your heart, and you will beg for more. It will tease you with your greatest desire till you grow mad. And this desire will eventually burn so fierce that you will drive yourself directly to us.
On December 30th, 2004 Kenneth Allen and his sister Kari fatally stabbed their mother, Sharon Allen, after she refused to help in the plot to murder her parents. On Jan. 3, Allen lured his 75-year-old grandmother, Betty Bradley, to his mother’s apartment and smothered her with a plastic bag. Later that day, Allen entered his grandparents’ Indianapolis home and lay in wait for his grandfather, Leander Bradley, 91, whom he bludgeoned to death with a hammer. Kenneth then used a saw to cut up the bodies of his mother and grandmother. He wrapped the remains in plastic and took them to the Bradleys’ Indianapolis home. There, he and his sister used a rented jackhammer and concrete mixer to dig a 6-foot-square hole in the floor of the basement where all three victims were entombed in concrete. Kenneth avoided the death penalty by pleading guilty in January 2010 to killing his mother and grandparents. He is serving life in prison without parole, plus 130 years. In April 2010, a judge sentenced Kari Allen to 38 years in prison, plus two years in community corrections programs.
