Maria Gloria Vazquez-Mebo

A 35-year-old Frederick woman is charged with murder after Frederick police say she killed an 81-year-old woman. 

Officers arrested Maria Gloria Vazquez-Mebo Monday and charged her with first- and second-degree murder, according to a press release from the Frederick Police Department. Police are not releasing the victim's identity at the request of her family, the release said. 

Police initially reported to the 400 block of North Bentz Street Sunday evening after a 911 caller reported an elderly woman had fallen down the stairs. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the release.

Detectives and a crime scene technician opened a death investigation, during which they searched the house after obtaining a warrant. The woman suffered head trauma and there were other unusual circumstances surrounding her death, according to the release.

After an autopsy was completed Monday morning, detectives followed up again with a second search warrant and took Vazquez-Mebo into custody. She confessed to striking the victim multiple times with a blunt object, according to the release. 

At a hearing Tuesday, District Court Judge Earl W. Bartgis Jr. ordered Vazquez-Mebo be held without bail. Vazquez-Mebo remains at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center.

She got to be a sick huzzy to do some crap like that. Wonder who she worked for.

Lemmy

She’s here illegally.

KellyAlzan

That’s highly probable. But you don’t know her, so you don’t know for sure

chyandqt

Yes what the paper said too. Wonder if the rest of her family are here the same way. I heard she took a rolling pin to her an knocked her down the stairs where she died at

Seriously. Just discontinue the comments moving forward.

A person has passed away, and some of your trolls are doing what they do - trolling.

You obviously can’t handle managing the trolls.

Death story after death story. And they refuse to be behaved.

So what the Herald Mail does - no commenting available.

Starting now.

End the commenting.

vjhughes

Well, on the other hand, Kelly, you could show the way and stop commenting, yourself.

bosco

[thumbup], a troll complaining about trolls. That's precious.[lol][ninja]

phydeaux994

Yes, but not 50 times a day!!!!

KellyAlzan

How is Kelly a troll? I’m hardly on here lately, and when I am there is a difference between actively engaging and trolling

gabrielshorn2013

More spin on this than a front-loading washing machine. First, the "Lead Commenter" continually uses this forum as her private stage in her personal vendetta against the Sheriff, regardless of what the story is, making outlandish claims. It is her inappropriate comments and lies that get the responses from other commenters, not the articles themselves. If she would refrain from such postings, she would not get the responses she gets. She is provided with verifiable facts that refute her claims, with links to the information, yet the claims and lies continue. She continually violates the terms of use for this forum as stated below, yet gets bent out of shape when others call her on it. Victim? Hardly.

KellyAlzan

I don’t troll people. I comment my thoughts as I see how.

The other week there was a lengthily death article and I had to report a handful of posts. Which were removed quickly. Before most saw them. Has nothing to do with Kelly. Was just poor taste and insensitive.

Can’t manage the comments - then time to sunset them

KellyAlzan

GH - —-you can’t pass an opportunity to dwell on me.

Like I said couple months ago - ——-big age difference.big personality difference. I’m high on life.

If you meet me in person - you’ll never write a volume st me again, you’d feel embarrassed for all you have said. Because you’ll find I’m not at all what you think.

The trolling of other commenters by the small handful of guys needs to stop. Especially in the death stories. You don’t need to be right. It’s only cyberspace.

Do you want the bickering in an article about the death of your aunt?

gabrielshorn2013

No, not embarassed at all Pb. I respond with facts to your false claims. Simply put, you lie, I reply. You may be an absolutely wonderful person outside this forum, but that is irrelevant. The only persona we see here is what you display. "You don't need to be right, it's only cyberspace" So, truth does not matter to you? Besmirching someones name and reputation is OK? You're right. We are very different. And no, I wouldn't want bickering in a story about my aunt. So why do you continually do it? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. Matthew 7:5

phydeaux994

I disagree gab, Kelly isn’t a troll and she doesn’t lie. I disagree with many things she says but I agree with more of what she says. She is a straight shooter in my opinion and you are just a RRR(RadicalRightRepublican)/BTT(BullyTagTeam) Trump Defender. There is no Defense for Trump anymore. Did you see him last night on the Town Meeting with George S last night? Pitiful. Race problems in America? “I hope not, I love all races, except the “THUGS” of the BLM Movement and Hispanics and Muslim Terrorists.

gabrielshorn2013

Well that's your opinion, and you are entitled to it. If you think what Pb says is the truth, you need to follow up on the references I posted in my replies. You even agreed that her assessment of the 287g program was wrong. As for the rest of your ramble, I didn't vote for Trump last time, and will not this time. Or is that your addled attempt at an insult?

KellyAlzan

Gabe - you have a hard one for me. You are determined to hate me. And I don’t care. I have great kids. We have community friends. And we are an active family. We sit down together every night and break bread. I don’t care about anyone on the Internet.

You say I’m a troll.

But, your only point you try to make is about 287. My opinion, my knowledge, my thoughts on 287 is not trolling.

You don’t know what’s in my mind about 287, or even H2B. I don’t owe you any explanations. You’re insignificant to me!

I post my thoughts. And I move on. I’m not here to score friends or points!

I live for my kids. They’re good kids. My life is complete.

KellyAlzan

And again - this story is about someone’s mother, grandmother,

Sister, someone’s aunt, being selfishly killed. Look at all the comments prior to the time that I ordered FNP to remove commenting.

You people, whether you like me or not, look at yourselves. You should be ashamed.

gabrielshorn2013

Kelly, where above did I say you were a troll? As for your life, I'm happy for you.

C.D.Reid

Plumbum, you may say that your thoughts on 287 aren't trolling and, in your own wee mind, you might seriously believe that. But, the comments you post here about Sheriff Jenkins over and over and over and over and over again are trolling. Just because the sheriff doesn't participate in this forum doesn't mean they aren't, by any means.

You say "The trolling of other commenters by the small handful of guys needs to stop," huh? Well, the best I can say is maybe you should think about getting that hair you have up your @$$ for the sheriff out of it, grow up, and quit posting all the redundant crap you do like saying he made Santos a "multi millionaire," and that "every morning when he leaves his house in Lewistown he HAS to think about how much he cost the taxpayers of the county with the lawsuit he caused her to bring against the county," and all your crap about the sheriff saying, when he ran for the office, that he would "go after the gangs," and him having an extra marital affair with a woman in W.V., etc,. etc,. etc.

Get my point, Plumbum?

KellyAlzan

GH (you know what GH stands for) will be driving and will see me comment. And GH is all like “euu euu, Kelly Commented, I must reply, I must set Kelly straight, I’m pulling over on the shoulder, I can’t let this go”

gabrielshorn2013

No, I don't know what GH stands for. Why don't you tell us? My initials are G S anyway. Caught in another false statement, you now deflect. I never said you were a troll.

C.D.Reid

You "ordered FNP to remove commenting," Plumbum? And just who gave you the authority to "order" them to do so? Not that it makes any difference, though, as you can obviously see that they ignored your "order."

dancing donna

I wish the 81 y.o. had means to protect herself and was able to use it swiftly. This would be an entirely different story. One of justice. There will be never be justice for brutally killing a person and certainly an elderly one.

dtwigg

She confessed. Really?

threecents

DTW, Curious post. Why did you ask that?

bosco

If she confessed without a lawyer present, it could get thrown out and she gets a walk. Hopefully they followed proper procedures.

[ninja]

threecents

Why wouldn't they have followed proper procedures??

TomWheatley

Seems pretty clear to me as in "can and will be used". Here is the full text of what one hears on any TV or movie as someone is being arrested. The last 2-3 sentences usually get cut off on shows.

http://www.mirandawarning.org/whatareyourmirandarights.html#:~:text=%E2%80%9CYou%20have%20the%20right%20to,will%20be%20provided%20for%20you.

The wording used when a person is read the Miranda Warning, also known as being ‘Mirandized,’ is clear and direct:

“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”

shiftless88

bosco; they do not need to have a lawyer present. If they ask for one and are not allowed one, then it is a problem. As Tom points out, haven't you ever watched a TV show?

TomWheatley

Looks my cut and paste of a long URL killed the text wrap feature. Ah well, you get the basic idea.

KellyAlzan

It appears the subject is Latino. I’m speculating that she may not have fully understand what the Miranda rights mean.

But on the other hand, maybe she decided it’s best to cooperate and just do the right thing.

Greg F

If they read her the Miranda rights, a confession will stand.

bosco

shiftless sez...."haven't you ever watched a TV show?"......TV show lawyers. Great source for legal training. Spend a little time on the Innocence Project's website and see what you think about confessions and tactics cops use to get a confession from someone who may not know any better even after being advised of their rights.

[ninja]

shiftless88

Oh, I understand fully. But heck, people confess with a lawyer present and get off. Some lawyers, especially the free ones, are absolutely horrible. So basically you just drew a line and it was a nonsensical line.

bosco

Shiftless, I did not intend to draw a line. I was just pointing out the pitfalls if the confession doesn't hold. I am glad for anyone to take a look at the Innocence Project and the work they do. ✌️

[ninja]

Burgessdr

Kelly. Really dude. She is Latino so she probably doesn't understand English very well?

C.D.Reid

I'm surprised fido didn't call Kelly a racist for her comment. He must not have seen it yet.

bosco

I'm waiting to see how Fido can twist my posts to call me a racist. He may want to pass on this one. He's probably still trying to find a post where I bragged about wearing "colors".[lol][ninja]

C.D.Reid

Yeah, that's pretty sad. What's even sadder is he says I don't have a life, when he's the one digging through the archives here trying to find comments I posted years ago that match his racist agenda. Pitiful.

KellyAlzan

Nice twist burge. Now, since you’re so smart, I’m sure you paid attention to my wording, right?

KellyAlzan

Cd - pot meet kettle.

C.D.Reid

You want a hint, fido? Ok, here's one;

PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP HAS MADE MY LIFE MORE SATISFYING AND POSITIVE!

Ok now?

C.D.Reid

Hey fido, since when do I, or anyone else for that matter, have to "prove" to you what kind of life I have? Just because you don't have one doesn't mean that nobody else does either.

C.D.Reid

Hey Pb, I forgot, how many millions of dollars did Santos get? [lol][lol][lol]

bosco

Fido, if you are still monitoring this thread to keep track of my posting hours and number of posts, take a look at today's Dilbert cartoon to see what a joke constant cries of racism have become. That card is worn our and dog-eared.[lol][ninja]

Whatsup

How refreshing to receive a confession. I guess some people will take responsibility for their actions. Hope this helps the family. Sorry for their loss.

Greg F

Really? Killing an 81yr old...how courageous...🙄. Toss away your life...good job. People are not nice.

Dwasserba

People are innocent until proven guilty too....

KellyAlzan

That is correct. However, not usually when there is a confession.

”She confessed to striking the victim multiple times with a blunt object, according to the release”

shiftless88

All sorts of things can come up. Look at Flynn!

Dwasserba

True. But this is still America, no?

KellyAlzan

Agree. What have we become??

alicemz328

Nothing new.. Cain supposedly killed his brother Abel out of jealosy. Killing is Dawn of Time stuff, unfortunately.

threecents

Yah, I have never been particularly impressed with human nature. We are lucky that this is the exception, rather than the rule.

bosco

Agreed threecents. [thumbup][ninja]

Greg F

That’s fiction...as in “I saw one unicorn kill another unicorn.
