13 October 1998 – Jeremy Vargas Sagastegui
In a dire case of the babysitter from hell, Jeremy Vargas Sagastegui was executed in America for killing three people including a three-year-old boy.
Toddler Kievan Sarbacher was left in the so-called care of Sagastegui, along with his infant sister on the night of 18 November 1995 in Washington. While his mother was out, the helpless little boy was sexually abused, beaten, stabbed and finally drowned.
Sagastegui then lay in wait for the mother, Melissa Sarbacher, to return. When she did he shot her, plus her friend Lisa Vera-Acevedo, both 27.
Strangely he left the one-year-old girl untouched.
Old Jezza didn’t even attempt to defend his actions and was duly found guilty on three counts of murder and sentenced to death. He saw this sentence as a means of committing suicide because he’d accepted the death penalty without appeal. And sure enough Sagastegui was put to death by lethal injection, aged 27.
