Default Edward Zakrzewski

This was on "fugitive hotline" segment. This man was a technical sargent for the U.S Air Force. He met his wife whilst stationed in South Korea. He was transferred to Florida and moved there with his wife however after 3 months she asked for a divcorce.

On June 13 1994 Zakrzewski failed to turn up to duty and later that day the bodies of his children and his wife were found.

Didn't know there was an update to this case. He is currently on death row in Florida.

I remember that one. Thanks for the update, so glad he was caught. He definitely deserves to die...attacking and murdering his young children with a machete.

No worries, I searched for him in the forums and he wasn't listed. I'm sure though he has another page somewhere.

He certainly deserves to die, such a crude, horrific crime. Can't believe he has fought it for so long.

Well, I don't think anyone deserves to die. In any event, Zakrzewski remains on Florida's death row. Although for all you death penalty fans, his appeals are out, so need to worry, Zakrewski will be getting his appointment with the needle sooner rather than later. Zakrewski is out of appeals, so thus, his death warrant could be signed as soon as next year.

Looking at the case, Zakrewski's jury was not really entirely sold on the fact that he should have even got the death penalty. Only by the slimmest of majorities, 7 to 5 did they recommend that he get the death penalty for murdering his wife Sylvia and for the murder of his son Edward Zakrewski III, they recommended life for the murder of his daughter Anna although the trial judge later overrode that recommendation.

Now, the details of the murders are as such: Zakrewski and his wife had been experiencing marital problems in the months before the murders. Zakrewski had told more than one person that he would kill his entire family rather than subject to them to a divorce. On June 9th, 1994, Zakrewski's son, Edward III then age 7 called his dad at work at Eglin Air Force Base and said said his mom was talking about divorce, upon finishing the conversation with his son, Zakrewski went on his lunch break and while on that lunch break purchased a machete. He completed his shift, then returned home where he killed his family one after the other that evening, after the murders he then drove from Eglin Air Force Base to Orlando and flew from Orlando to Honolulu, Hawaii.

After being arrested, Zakrzewski was returned to Florida, in 1996 he pled guilty to all three murders but had his sentencing phase before an Okalossa County, Florida Jury. In Florida, for the jury to have a death penalty recommendation at least 7 of the jurors have to vote for it. The jury recommended death for the murders of Zakrzewski's wife and son by a vote of 7 to 5 but recommended 25 years to life for the murder of Zakrzewski's daughter. THe trial judge later sentenced Zakrzewski to two death sentences as recommended and overrode the jury's life recommendation for the death of Zakrzewski's daughter and sentenced Zakreski to death on that charge to death on that charge too, that was on April 19th, 1996.

To me, at least from a defense point of view, the bigger problem was Zakrewski pleading guilty, which you NEVER do in any case, especially a Capital Murder case, without a prior plea agreement in place. That is why his case has sped along a lot faster than most appeals in Florida would, it is because he pled guilty, so his guilt phase stuff is settled, the only question is, his punishment?

Anyone who commits murder on their own family and especially their children deserves the ultimate punishment.

Interesting he ran off to Hawaii after the murders and hid out in a religious commune. He gave himself up after a promotion for unsolved mysteries aired in Hawaii.

Absoultely amazing the lengths he has gone to appeal his conviction.

Zakrzewski reportedly commented to a neighbor that he would rather kill his family than subject them to a divorce.

There is nothing sane nor rational about that comment, if he indeed made it.

Isn't that what Robert Fisher said also? That's weird...

Yes, that's right. What crazy men! By the way, may I ask who your avatar is of? I feel I should know but it seems like a case I haven't seen in a long while.

My avatar is of Monica Libao as a teen. Monica is searching for her birth family and true identity and believes that her 'parents' abducted her as an infant.
Sadly, Monica's case remains unsolved.

Watched this segment for the first time recently. It was originally aired as part the fugitive hotline segment of UM. Did they ever capture the other 2 fugitives who were part of this segment: Alan Verl Sneed and Nasario Calderon?

Alan Verl Sneed was later arrested and died in 2006.
I found this article about Nasario Calderon from 1998:
http://articles.latimes.com/1998/dec/14/local/me-53919
It mentions the Unsolved Mysteries broadcast, and says he is still on the run.
However, I cannot find anything after 1998, so I don't know if he is a fugitive or his in jail.

I'd say that the Zakrzewski murder case was probably too brutal to have a longer segment for.

I posted on this site a couple of years ago about a guy I thought was Nasario Calderon Palacios. The guy was going by the name Oscar Simon on FB, now by the name Oscar Nomis (Simon backwards) and he's living in Toronto. Like Nasario he is 5'7, the right age, and I think they look very similar. I met him in 2003/2004 and he said he was from Columbia originally but never elaborated. The first time I saw the segment was about 10 years after meeting this guy, but the hairs on the back of my neck stood up immediately. I thought it was my UM obsession taking over but I'm still not sure.
