An Oklahoma man will spend the rest of his life behind bars after he pleaded guilty to committing three gruesome murders that took the lives of his neighbors, uncle, and his uncle’s granddaughter.
Back in 2021, Lawerence Paul Anderson, 44, went to his neighbor Andrea Lynn Blakenship’s house and stabbed her to death, cut her heart out, and took it back to his house to feed his aunt and uncle, Delsie Pye and Leon Pye.
Anderson cooked Andrea’s heart and served it with potatoes to reportedly “release the demons” before he fatally stabbed his uncle and his 4-year-old granddaughter Kaeos Yates and severely injured his aunt by stabbing her in both eyes.
Delsie survived the attack, but is now blind in one eye and deaf on one side. During sentencing, she said she is heartbroken that a family member would commit such a crime.
“Family means everything to me, as my nephew I don’t love you but I don’t hate you – even though I can’t judge you, God will,” she added.
Quindessa Flowers, another granddaughter of the Pyes, shouted in court: “You’re not sad at all! Don’t shed no fake as** tears!” During her impact letter, she screamed:
“I hope you rot from the inside out. You ain’t no family of ours, and I hate you for everything you’ve done to us.”
Tasha Yates, the mother of Kaeos, cursed Anderson before rushing out of the courtroom. “Who kills a baby… who does that?”Yates yelled. During her impact letter, she said: ‘I pray you hear my baby girl as she told you that she loves you and that she didn’t want to die, too!”
