Serial Killer Joseph Duncan Dead Full Details (What did he do?)
Duncan abducted a young boy and his sister by murdering four members of the Groene family.
He kept the children hostage for several weeks before taking the little girl to a Denny’s in Coeur d’Alene. Martinez’s body was discovered 15 days after he was abducted outside his home while playing.
Diana Martinez, Anthony Martinez’s mother, expressed her grief over Duncan’s death, “The sun is a little brighter today, My soul is lighter. The world is a more beautiful place without the evil that is Joseph Duncan.
“God chose to make his end a long-suffering and I believe that is fitting. The horror of his thoughts consumed him.”
Anthony’s father Ernesto said, “While I would’ve liked to witness his execution, knowing he is now standing before God being held accountable for what he has done, what he did to my son, and the horrible crimes he committed to others, that is the real justice.”
