Gruesome Family Crime: Mother Enlists Children to Relocate Dismembered Remains of Husband


A woman had murdered her husband before asking her children for assistance in moving his dismembered corpse, which she had hacked with an axe. Thessalonica Allen, 36, was judged guilty of murdering Randy Allen. Allen murdered her spouse while her two children under the age of 16 were present in their La Porte, Indiana, residence. Allen was convicted of eight charges, including homicide, abuse of a corpse, altering a crime scene, and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

 Allen and her husband were arguing over a social media post he saw while assisting one of their children with schoolwork, the court heard. The 16-year-old child of the couple testified in court that the post prompted the father to accuse Allen of infidelity, resulting in a domestic dispute. According to both children, they heard a loud bang before rushing into their bedroom. The jury was informed that Randy was found with a bullet wound to his arm, the projectile having entered the right side of his body, striking his spinal cord, and leaving him paralyzed.

According to WSBT, the children persuaded their mother to dial 911, while Thessalonica Allen instructed them to disregard their dying father’s pleas for help. Thessalonica Allen awoke her two children later that evening and instructed them to assist her in dragging their father’s corpse outside to get into a car. However, the body was too weighty, so Thessalonica resorted to horrifyingly extreme measures to dismember it.

Her children went on to tell the court that their mother left the house the following day to purchase an axe, which she subsequently used to dismember Randy’s corpse before requesting their assistance in placing his body parts in a bag. Thessalonica notified the children that she planned to convey their father’s body to a location in South Bend where it would then be burned.

Thessalonica then asked her ex-partner and the father of one of the children to assist with the disposal, but he refused and contacted the police. Her attorney argued that Thessalonica had acted in self-defense, but prosecutors claimed she had lied to obtain a protective order against Randy Allen and that there were notes indicating she had planned to kill her spouse. During a subsequent search of the apartment, police discovered a note containing a list of tasks presumably related to disposing of her husband’s body.
