Jessica Sacco Murder: Down with the Clown

I will NEVER understand this subculture no matter how hard I try. For those who are not familiar with the clown-faced degenerates, they are “Juggalos” who are fans of the very untalented rap group Insane Clown Posse or ICP.  The band is the self-proclaimed “most hated band” ever and their fans are maniacal in their support of the band.  I write about them because of a murder that took place in Urbana, Ohio almost 2 weeks ago by a  “Juggalo”.  This isn’t the first time a Juggalo has killed, and the FBI has recently classified them  in their 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment as a “fast-growing, violent gang.”  Google Juggalos and you’ll see just how bizarre their movement is.  The reason I mention Juggalos/Juggalette is because of the murder of Jessica Rae Sacco of Urbana, Ohio.  She and her friends were all part of the Juggalo subsect and her murderer, Matthew Puccio, had threatened a group on Facebook because of their ill feelings towards Juggalos.  Jessica had also posted on her wall about a “hit” against her by Puccio’s ex-girlfriend, as well as a “hit” against Juggalo members.

Matthew Puccio and friends were at the home of his on again/off again girlfriend Jessica Rae Sacco on March 22nd as that appears to be Jessica’s last Facebook entry.  The details of exactly what precipitated the crime have not been released, but Puccio stabbed and strangled her and then his friend, Andrew Forney assisted in dismembering her in the bathtub while three other friends stood by.  Edited to add WLWT in Cincinnati is claiming that Puccio thought Sacco had put a “hit” on him.

Puccio posted on a Facebook group recently:

Police say Matthew Puccio stabbed and suffocated the 21-year-old last Thursday inside of her apartment in Urbana, Ohio, which is 17 miles north of Springfield.

Police say Puccio and Andrew Forney then dismembered her body inside of a bathtub.

Police say three other people were inside of the apartment during the murder, but they did nothing to stop it. Instead, investigators say Kandis Forney, Christopher Wright and Sharon Cook helped to cover up the crime.

The group later drove to Hamilton and then Covington, disposing of Sacco’s remains, according to police.

Police arrested Puccio, Andrew Forney and Kandis Forney on Saturday in Hamilton. They were booked into the Butler County Jail.

If you read the comments in the news article from Channel 12 Cincinnati, you can see where these two ladies are being tied in with this bunch.  Not sure in what capacity, but there was something on Candice’s wall about Matt Puccio that is of interest.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the above plays out.

Author edit:  WLWT Cincinnati posted this:

Two women who asked not to be identified — S and her daughter L — said they are friends of Puccio. They told News 5’s Karin Johnson that Puccio told them he killed his girlfriend because she put a hit out on him.

The women said Puccio showed them the bag that the body parts were in, but both thought he was just pulling their leg.They also told Johnson that Puccio went with them to Covington and they saw him toss the bag out of the car.”

He opened up the side door and he just threw it up into the air, and like I said, it went down slow so I didn’t expect it to be a human body,” S said.

But later, they said, Puccio told them precisely what was in the bag.

“Two legs, an arm and fingertips,” S said.

“There was nine fingertips, the right arm and both of her legs from the knee down,” L said.

The women said Andrew Forney told them about the role he played in Sacco’s death.”He said, ‘I’m the one that took the fingertips with pliers,'” the women said. “We didn’t feel nothing, I didn’t feel nothing,” the women said Andrew Forney told them.

    I noticed the article says he killed her “Last Thursday” The article was written on March 31st. That would make “last Thursday” March 29. I think it was the week before on March 22 as that is the last time she posted on her FB page. She seemed to have posted everyday with out fail so it’s odd if he killed her on the 29th, that she didn’t post after the 22nd.

    Here’s Jessica’s FB page…

    Found this interesting too….
    One of Matthew’s comments on his FB page…

    Wonder if that’s the knife he killed her with. Why would he feel the need to carry so many weapons? Unless of course he was looking for trouble! Also, he seems to like signing his post as “Ring Master” Thinks real highly of himself or, he is pretty much the leader of their gang?

    Ohh and I found this interesting also. Regarding Candice…

    Andrew became friends with Candice Janevski.
    March 28

    She became friends with Andrew after the murder!

    Oh and she has this posted on her FB page…

    Candice Janevski

      Yeah, I thought that was interesting, too — friends with them AFTER the murder. Off to find these Juggalo Holocaust videos Puccio was talking about. Check out the comments on Jessica’s page. Interesting.

          These kids are NOT intelligent at all. Doing some reading about this Juggalo Holocaust thing and it is done for nothing more than trolling them, yet they think that there are real hitmen out there – as shown by the above post. Wow…just wow. Here’s a link to a blog I found. I just don’t know what to say.

    “We believe that he stabbed her and subsequently suffocated her by placing a bag over her head until she couldn’t breathe anymore,” said Urbana Police Chief Matt Lingrell told WDTN-TV.

    He faces numerous charges including murder, assault, and abuse of a corpse.

    The other four people in custody are accused of being at the home when it happened, discovering the murder, and helping to cover it up.

    “After Matthew Puccio murdered Ms. Saccio the other members had a part in coming up with a game plan to try and conceal the crime by dismembering the victim,” Lingrell told WDTN-TV.

      I don’t understand the culture. Maybe you can explain it and help us understand – what IS it about and why does the FBI consider Juggalos a “gang”? From everything I have seen, and this is not meant as an insult, but it seems like a bunch of kids/adults who otherwise don’t fit into “mainstream”. It seems to be people who were probably bullied and weren’t very socially adept prior to meeting their “family”.

      I don’t believe for one second that this was self-defense. This was a violent person who obviously has a history of violence. The fact that he was going on about Juggalo Holocaust hits, etc. just makes this case even more intriguing. I don’t understand why he hasn’t been charged with the death of the child either. Maybe they are still getting their case together, but either way ALL of these clowns need to pay for what they did. Linda and Suzette are equally at fault for KNOWINGLY keeping information about a murder to themselves. That makes them complicit, IMO.

        Urbana police Chief Matt Lingrell has said that Puccio and Sacco recently met the Forneys online and that the members of the group were “loose friends.” He wouldn’t specify how some of the couples may have met online.

      Of course ICP didn’t make any of them kill. No one has said that. Yes Puccio was a Juggalo and everyone he is in contact with are also Juggalos. Does it make all Juggalos murderers? Not at all.

      Sorry if you find this offensive but, I have yet to see, or read any thing regarding these Juggalos and those who hung out with them as anything other than lowest common denominators in life. They are all white trash! Again I am talking about these people and those they are friends with.

        That guy is an extreme dirt bag. I’m watching the video of his confession to WHIO TV and at one point he is near GLOWING while talking about the murder. So, who else was complicit in setting this up? I don’t buy for one second that there weren’t others who didn’t know what happened or didn’t know what was going to happen. This group have loose lips and are about as dumb as a box of rocks.

        I’m pretty sure Linda J is the one who identified him as a “Juggalo” to the media and that’s how that ball got started rolling.

        Anonymous person/Linda Does repeating how much he loved her and didn’t want to do it, make you believe it more? Cause it sure doesn’t make anyone else believe it. How does someone do something they don’t want to do? Care to explain that? How do you know he didn’t want to do it where you there? I now you and your sorry excuse for a mother were there when he disposed of the body and never told anyone but, were you there when he killed her and chopped her up to know he didn’t want to do it? Or are you just trying to cover the ass of the piece of shit you love?

    And yet Linda J claims that Puccio has known Forney all his life, that their parents were friends and they grew up together. Jessica had Puccio living with her and shortly there after the landlord said she asked if the Forney’s could stay for a week or so too.

      Linda is a little liar she is in love with Matt that’s why she’s saying all this and in her interview with one of the news stations she is wearing Jessica’s pants! Trying to mock her or what I don’t know she is a delusional child who needs to be in jail with the rest of them! Jessica is from my hometown in Cali we were friends and this whole “putting a hit on Matt” thing is bull because she didn’t even know anyone out there! And aside from that she was one of the sweetest most friendly people you could meet who just wanted everyone to be her friend she was not violent or hateful at all! Shame on Linda really for lying on somebody just because Jess is not here to speak for herself! I hope all these sickos are haunted For the rest of their meaningless lives. They deserve to die a slow and painful death straight up disgraces to humanity

        From reading her Facebook, she did seem like all she wanted to do was make friends, and sadly — she met these dirtbags. So, Linda has her pants on? UNREAL! Matt made a confession – have you seen the video? He’s really REALLY sick, and I ask again — why hasn’t Linda been arrested? They said they were with him when he threw the bag over the bridge. They didn’t turn him into law enforcement. Normal people just do not behave this way.

        Thanks yeah I’ve been busy so haven’t had a chance to watch it but read about some of what was said he’s sick and twisted saying he wanted to end their relationship because she turned to witchcraft? I was texting her about a week before this happened and she had very strong faith in god. I don’t know what his angle is telling these lies trying to look cool or something idk but I want to smack that smug look in his mugshot off of his face! And this was premeditated because in a closed group honoring her that I belong to a few people have said this was mentioned and it was a plan idk why nobody said anything they “thought he was kidding” but I encouraged those who know something to speak up now I’m friends of Jessica’s sister and a lot of people cared about her and it’s bad enough that this happened but now all these lies they are telling is just ridiculous and the media seems to love reporting on it! I sent them a message to contact one of us who knew her because it’s not fair that these low-life’s are getting any attention at all and all they are doing is telling lies about what kind of person she was…

        Which just goes to show that Puccio is lying even over something as simple as how long he has known Forney. I read he is trying to convince the judge he is insane. Bet he tries to use that as a defense. Won’t work though.

          I bet he’s working on an insanity defense, too. WHERE is his attorney at? Why is his attorney allowing him to make all of these admissions to the media? He literally makes me ill when I read or see his interviews. There is something TERRIBLY wrong with him. He emits evil.

    Valerie, please call Law Enforcement and give them names of the people who have told you that they heard it was planned. This needs to be known and if they are part of a group honoring Jessica then they should do what’s right for her and speak up.

    I don’t know Jessica or anyone involved but from reading all their Facebook pages, I can not for one minute understand why LE has not arrested both Linda and her mother! I will even be willing to bet, Candice was there too that weekend while Puccio was there as she was going to see her kids along with her mother.

    http://oi41.tinypic.com/b3wm02.jpg

    Notice the date that was posted? 4 days after the murder and notice both Linda and Matthew Puccio were tagged in this picture. Also take note of the fact that prior to the murder, RC did not tag Puccio in any of his pictures yet, after the murder he tagged not only Puccio but also Linda in several of the same pictures. I believe there were many more people involved in the murder and cover up.

        I’ve wrote to almost every news station as well asking them write something about my friend that wasn’t lies from her enemies side of the story because it’s bad enough what happened and most of her friends&family are in Cali so hard to get things done and now we all have to read these ridiculous lies these people are telling it’s very upsetting all I want is for them to write something to honor Jessica instead of giving all these sickos attention because they probably like it

        Yeah that would be cool I read the other one that’s how I found this one of my friends posted your other article 🙂 I got mad at another site for sharing that thread of comments my friend was kind of upset to have all of her information shared because she didn’t know her page wasnt private but the other people were saying rude things and being disrespectful. I just want people to know that Jessica was sometimes bullied, but was the type of person to forgive no matter what and not hold anything harsh you may have said against you. She just wanted to fit in and have friends, we didn’t talk much about her relationship with Matt but it seemed like she was always trying to please him and trying to become a better person. She was definately a people pleaser. She is one of those people who will always see the good in someone and be there to be your friend and support you no matter what…Jessica is the one who couldn’t hurt a fly she was a very docile person not violent or hateful at all. She always had a positive attitude and a smile even through the worst situations, especially recently with Matt she just didn’t seem happy I don’t think he treated her very well. This is gonna make me cry ;( she just didn’t deserve this, all those evil people, just took advantage of her kindness and good heart
