Kenneth ‘Ken’ Manzanares: Death Cruise Full Of Mystery, Murder, And Laughter Aboard Alaskan Ship

Kenneth ‘Ken’ Manzanares took his wife, Kristy Manzanares, aboard the Emerald Princess cruise ship to celebrate their almost-20-year wedding anniversary. It turned out to be a family-cruise nightmare. Cruise ship passengers thought it was a murder mystery dinner event, but Kristy Manzanares was no actress. The Utah ‘princess’ wife was dead, and her husband, Kenneth Manzanares, was the killer.

 

TV Crime Sky brought you the story of the Emerald Princess cruise tragedy days ago after it was revealed that a Utah woman had died aboard the luxury ship.

 

That woman was identified as thirty-nine-year-old Kristy Manzanares, a real estate agent in Utah. The latest investigation reveals her husband, Kenneth Manzanares, killed her because she laughed at him. Law enforcement officials arrested the man.

 

Passengers aboard the lavish Alaskan cruise said they heard the piercing screams, and nothing about the screams seemed normal, a witness told investigators.

Some passengers believed the events were part of

October 23 2005 in Ocilla, Georgia, and former-beauty queen Tara Grinstead attends a local pageant where she is coaching contestants and then heads to a barbecue.

The next day she fails to show up for work and her co-workers phone the police who head to her house. There they find her unlocked car outside but her purse and keys are missing.

The case was highlighted by a CBS News

They Are Wrong Again, This Time About Shiva

The author, who asked the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh to study the Tamil Saivite texts, should have done it herself. Had she done it, she would have found that in the Sangam literature itself (300 BCE to 300 CE) Shiva appears as a great god with all the characteristics with which he is venerated today.

If one is to make a compilation of all the attributes of Shiva as presented in Sangam literature, then this is the picture we get: he sits under the banyan tree imparting Vedic wisdom; from his mouth emanates the four Vedas; he has three eyes and a blue throat; he lives in the Himalayas with his consort Uma and tamed Ravana when the demon tried lifting the Himalayas; he is an archer with fiery arrows who destroyed the three demonic worlds with the Himalayas as the bow and the cosmic serpent as his bow string;

Review: ‘King Kirby’ at Off the Quill, Performing at Greenbelt Arts Center

Print Friendly, PDF  Email

Who could guess that a play about the life of the renowned comic book artist, Jack Kirby (August 28, 1917 – February 6, 1994), would be filled with so much humor, pathos and fact-dropping narrative? The play, written by comic book artist Fred Van Lente and playwright Crystal Skillman, is so new, its Kickstarter page is still up. With stunningly real performances and clever direction by Keith Cassidy, King Kirby is top shelf stage art about the world of comics. Kapow!

Ellen Snyder claims to have shot her husband during an argument

This week American Monster examines the disappearance and murder of Mike Snyder, who’s killer was very close to home indeed.

Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 2002 and 43-year-old Mike Snyder has a good job and has married, despite having to battle multiple sclerosis.

However, he suddenly disappears and his wife Ellen Snyder tells investigators that he was abusive, possibly gay and that he is still alive.

This does not fit well with his friends or family but the cops turn up no leads.

Eight years later and Ellen’s son from previous marriage tells a friend about what really happened. This leads the police to dig up the back garden where they unearth Mike’s body.

Turns out that his wife shot him, left his body in the house a few day and then hired a backhoe to
