“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Bizarre Tyler Murder Included Possible Cannibalism

A Tyler man accused in the grisly mutilation killing of his girlfriend appeared in court Monday on a capital murder charge.

No plea was immediately entered for Christopher Lee McCuin, 25, in a case where the victim's body parts were found in a kitchen.

Sheriff officials were alerted Saturday morning after McCuin told his mother and her boyfriend to look in their garage. There, the couple saw the body of 21-year-old Jana Shearer, McCuin's girlfriend. McCuin's mother and her boyfriend fled the home and flagged down a police officer.

After they left, McCuin called 911 and told an emergency dispatcher he had killed his girlfriend and was boiling parts of her, said Smith County Sheriff J.B. Smith.

When authorities arrived at the home, they found Shearer's mutilated body, one ear boiling in a pot of water on the stove and some human flesh sitting on a plate with a fork on the kitchen table.

"I'm never shocked anymore, but I am surprised that human beings can actually do this kind of stuff to each other," Smith told the Tyler Morning Telegraph in a story on its Web site today. "You ask yourself how anyone could do anything like this to someone else. I just don't have an answer."

Shearer appeared to die from blunt trauma to her head, Smith said. Sheriff deputies said they believe she was abducted by McCuin from her home Friday night.

"That's the last time anyone saw her, and we feel she was taken against her will because she was not wearing any shoes. She didn't have her purse or her cell phone," Smith said.

Smith said McCuin then drove to his estranged wife's home, where he stabbed William Veasley, 42. Veasley remains in intensive care at a Tyler hospital.

McCuin was still in that home when deputies arrived, but he jumped into his car and escaped after a short chase, Smith said.

McCuin wasn't seen again until Saturday morning, when he arrived at his mother's home and called her into the garage so she could "come see what he had done," Smith said.

When sheriff deputies arrived, McCuin barricaded himself in the home for a short time before coming out. After he emerged, a tactical team entered and found Shearer's body, Sgt. Gary Middleton said.

After McCuin was arrested and placed in the back of a patrol car, he kicked out the vehicle's side window before being put in additional restraints, Middleton said.

Detectives were trying to determine where the murder happened. They think McCuin drove to his mother's home with the dead woman in the back seat of his extended-cab pickup, said Sheriff's Lt. Larry Wiginton.

"He didn't just kill her and that was it," Wiginton said. "This murder went on for a while and it was pretty brutal and there was some evidence of some really weird stuff."

McCuin has a criminal record that includes driving while intoxicated and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges, according to court records. When he was arrested, McCuin had an outstanding felony retaliation warrant.

Neighbors said they believed McCuin was on drugs and had acted strangely.

"He would stand in the roadway and wouldn't let people pass and he would talk to himself. He acted crazy," said next door neighbor Pam Hightower.

McCuin remains in the Smith County Jail on $2 million bond.

The judge also sealed the arrest and search warrants, plus issued a gag order in the case.

  2. Wonder of wonders
    Christopher Lee McCuin is neither a Mormon nor Muslim.

    Jana certainly did not have the luck of the Irish at her side

    Jana was 21, could have lived alone, with a roommate or at her parents place.

    Times I've come home and my 21 year old was not around, foul play was never the first thing to come to mind. Granted, he's a son, not a daughter, but even so.

    That this McCuin fellow was a wanted criminal, just shows how dangerous those whose ancestory is of county Longford, Ireland can be.

  5. Guess Jana's parents were loath to discuss the Irish problem with Jana, being from the Berwickshire area of Briain, they must have been hoping that the English and Irish could all just get along.

    Now, I'd bet, they're having a case of the multi-cultural blues

  6. One of the goals of the multi-cultural crowd was to claim the equivalence of all people, all races, all religions and all heritage. Read what Jana wrote on her Myspace:

    "Your Heritage: What?"

    From that question and answer I would reasonably assume this girl was indoctrinated into believing that heritage was almost a racist question. Her heritage and all that comes with it was not important, maybe even bad.

    I assume she was indoctrinated to be non-discriminatory and I will also assume she was not taught that that black males of his age group (14-40) represent 2-3% of the US population, yet commit 55-60% of the violent crimes, not to make her to be a racist , but to be cautious and smart.

    All males with multiple prior arrests statistically commit many crimes yet are caught for few. I assume that Jana had normal caution weaned out of her.

    Back to her profile:

    "Your Weakness: Too nice!"

    Her life experiences probably started telling her that being "too nice" can be a problem,

    Her cultural choices, by her own profile was determined by Music with Rap at the top of the list. Her choice in television was:

    " MTV, BET,The simple life, Deal or No Deal, Starting Over, Amaricans Next Top Modle (sic), all that good stuff!"

    The press, like her parents, do not think people should have all the facts about things of race and culture and heritage. I had to piece this together from five sources to see what the story was behind the salacious headlines of cannibalism. Television entertainment such as MTV and rap music, and other cultural garbage has indoctrinated millions of other simple young people into accepting the worse part of our culture as being normal, and created the non-discriminating mind.

  7. 'The non-discriminating mind'--good phrase, deuce.

  8. Are you kidding me? You're claiming family tree / ancestry has anything to do with this?? That's a joke, right? Especially since I highly doubt the founding father of the McCuin's you link was African American.

    What the hell are you guys talking about, anyway? Race and heritage and all that. Jana said, "What" because she is a mutt. All of us that grew up in Tyler are a million different blends of Heinz 57 and trying to fit any sort of ethnic explanation on this occurence is incredibly laughable.

  9. I comment each time I appreсiаte a post οn
