Internet: SERIOUS F***ING BUSINESS
‘Spam King’ escapes from federal prison
Edward “Eddie” Davidson, a notorious e-mail spammer who was sentenced to jail time in April
, has escaped from a federal prison camp in Florence, Colorado.[/left]
Davidson, also known as the “Spam King, made a run for it when his wife visited him last Sunday and is now officially listed in “escape” status, according to a statement
from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He was last seen in Lakewood, CO.
The FBI, IRS, and the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force are helping the U.S. Marshals in the search for Davidson.
Davidson was housed in a minimum security facility. Minimum security institutions, also known as Federal Prison Camps (FPCs), have dormitory housing, a relatively low staff-to-inmate ratio, and are work and program-oriented. FPCs are generally located adjacent to larger institutions, where inmates help serve the labor needs of the larger institution.
'Spam King' one of 3 dead in apparent murder-suicide
The man who escaped from a federal prison in Florence after being convicted for sending spam e-mail killed his wife and one of their children before killing himself in an apparent murder-suicide on Thursday.
Apparently, to spammers, Internet is SERIOUS F***ING BUSINESS.
Eddie Davidson, 35, was serving a 21-month sentence for illegally sending spam over the Internet and escaped from a minimum security prison in Florence on July 20.
9Wants to Know learned Davidson was involved earlier on Thursday and the U.S. Attorney's office confirmed it again on Thursday evening.
At around 11:15 a.m. Thursday, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department received a report of shots fired in the area of East Arkansas Place.
Around the same time, according to the sheriff's department, a female teenager arrived at a neighbor's house with a gunshot wound to the neck. She was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
When sheriff's deputies arrived at the house, located in the 43000 block of East Arkansas Place, they found a dead woman and a dead man lying next to a silver Toyota Sequoia in the driveway. They also found a dead 3-year-old girl inside the SUV.
The U.S. Attorney's office says the man, Davidson, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The U.S. Attorney's office says Davidson's wife and 3-year-old child were the other two who were killed and they both died from gunshot wounds.
An infant boy, about 7 to 8 months old, was found unharmed inside the back of the SUV still in a car seat. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for dehydration.
All of the deceased suffered from gunshot wounds, as did the teenage girl.
This is the sort of thing you'd never expect to read... The dude was only sentenced for 21 months and $715,000... I can MAYBE understand suicide, but killing your FAMILY?! Overkill.
