This is bizarre news about a Huffington Post blogger. It reads like an episode of CSI:

BOYNTON BEACH -- A woman who lived with her ex-partner on the city's south side stabbed her former lover more than 200 times with a Phillips-head screwdriver and then tried to conceal the killing, police said.

After committing the crime, Carol Anne Burger, 57, a writer who friends described as engaged and eager to move on with life, reported her old flame missing and then, a day later, shot herself to death in her backyard, police said.

The revelation at a news conference this morning marked the final chapter of the gruesome murder mystery, which began last Thursday with Burger's phone call and the grim discovery that followed.

A bloodied Jessica Kalish, 56, a successful software executive, was found stuffed in the backseat of her gunmetal BMW, which was parked behind 2300 S. Congress Ave.

She had been stabbed 220 times, with the wounds concentrated in the back of her head, back, arms and face, said Lt. Gary Chapman. The majority of the wounds were between an inch and an inch-and-a-half deep.

A blow to Kalish's neck likely killed her, Chapman said.

On Kalish's car, blood was splashed around the rear end and on the rear undercarriage, as if Burger had tried to load Kalish into the trunk before putting her in the backseat. Kalish's driver-side window was shattered and her keys and wallet were later found discarded on Gateway Boulevard.

As investigators studied the case, several telltale signs pointed to Burger, they said, including the ferocity and personal nature of the killing.

Detectives said Kalish exercised at LA Fitness on Wednesday night before returning home by 9:30 p.m. She was probably dead by midnight, Chapman said. After the crime, police said Burger put Kalish in the BMW and drove her to the Congress Avenue site before walking home, a distance of about 2 1/2 miles.

Burger cleaned up the garage and apparently used the washing machine and bathroom sink, where traces of Kalish's blood was later detected. She got into her Toyota Celica, drove to 548 E. Gateway Blvd. and tossed out Kalish's keys and wallet, police said.

On Tuesday, detectives searched the former couple's house, at 3300 Churchill Drive, and used Luminol, a chemical agent that causes blood traces to fluoresce under ultraviolet light, to uncover a "tremendous amount of blood" in the garage. It was there investigators said Burger attacked Kalish.

The Luminol also revealed Burger's glowing sneaker prints on the garage floor, "indicative of her walking through the blood," police said.

"We believe the process of killing Jessica was pretty lengthy, in and out of the car," Chapman said. "She obviously was out of her mind."

Burger's friends refused to believe she was capable of such savagery.

Hey Brian, little fellow, for examples of hatred on a daily basis all you need to do is look to your right on this page,under every WizBang Blue heading.

You may have thought you were making clever satire when saying that, but there's the truth about never ending daily hatred brought to you by liberals. Hard to deny for any sane person.

How can you take anything this deeply disturbed "blogger" has ever written as even close to being the truth, she was a "Crazed Obama Supporter".
