Saddest News Of The Day: 4-Year-Old Boy Stabbed 36 Times By An Intruder

What a terrible tragedy. A pregnant mother tried to fend of an attacker who brutally murdered her 4-year-old son in a home invasion.

This is the most awful news we have heard in a long time. A 4-year-old boy, Dakota Lane, died on Tuesday night (Nov. 9), after he was stabbed 36 times with a pair of scissors by an intruder in his Muskogee, OK, home. Dakota and his 6-year old brother were sleeping when the intruder came in and brutally attacked him. His mother, Stephanie Lane, who is 8 months pregnant, tried to fend off the attacker, but was unable to do so. Her 6-year-old was unharmed and she ended up with minor injuries while her innocent son was pronounced dead at a hospital in Tulsa. “In my entire career, I’ve never seen anything like this,” Muskogee police corporal Pedro Zardeneta told Kansas City’s KMBC. “It’s sad.”

Stephanie says she did not know the attacker, but was able to give police a very detailed description. They arrested Aaron Laconsello, 18, on suspicion of first-degree murder, first-degree burglary and assault with a deadly weapon after he was found on the campus of Bacone College, approximately three miles from the crime scene. He had apparently been living in a house on the Lanes’ street for the past few weeks with his cousin, Colt Hooper, 19, after he was kicked out of his home in nearby Tahlequah. The accused teen had no known connection to Dakota and his family, and there appears to be no reason for the senseless attack.

“In a criminal action, you usually have some answers,” said Muskogee County district attorney Larry Moore. “It may not be something that someone likes, but you usually have some answers. We don’t have any answers to that. It’s a horrible, horrible tragic incident.”

The Muskogee community has embraced the Lane family and is raising money in support of the family. Bank accounts were opened for the family at First National Bank and BancFirst, both accepting donations to the Dakota Lane Benefit accounts. “When your grandson is brutally murdered, and the people come to help you out, it really influences your thoughts of the community itself,” said Dakota’s grandfather Jack Bumgarner. “I’m glad I live here.” He added that Stephanie and her family are probably going to move to a new home. “I’m pretty certain my daughter does not want to go back,” he said. “Wherever they go, it will have a security system, I guarantee you.” Our hearts go out to the Lane family.

For his punishment I think they should stab him but don’t kill him instantly let him suffer first! As in why would you do such a thing?

I had to click on this story because i thought it was a typo or something. who in the hell would do this to a beautiful angel, much less attack a pregnant woman ? this devil lived down the street until his cousin kicked him out, so why didn’t he Attack the his cousin ? People, people we need to Pray at night before going to bed and pray over the kids ! also, barricade your house and have a exit plan , educate the kids on what to do if something or someone attacks and have your Baseball bat, gun, pepper spray handy. God bless this family and baby’s soul. this woman’s holidays will never be the same .

Wow, how vicious! Usually when you hear of such viciousness, it points to someone who knew the victim. Wow, just a casual neighbor? And a poor innocent 4 year old. I hope this guy burns in hell for this one. Glad the mother and other kids were ok.

Let me rephrase that, I know the mom and kids will never again be “ok”, but I am glad they survived.

Yes I would have a security system, plus a gun and a watchdog. The poor family will never be the same.

when you hear about stories like this it makes me think there is more to it than meets the eye…Like something supernatural. Or Preseved as supernatural… People…even messed up in the head people don’t randomly enter houses and stab children…There is more to this story, ether in the normal realm of things or the supernatural realm of things. I know it sounds stupid…but really? No one does this.

I agree with you on this. I personally think he was possessed by some entity. He had been drinking, so he was an easy target already for a vengeful soul. I bet even he doesn’t know why he did this horrendous act.

They don’t need a security system, that won’t help. They should invest in a good shotgun and this will never happen to them again.

when people do such things, they forgot that they will have to bear its result too.
so in return that brutel persons soul will also face brutel death in current or next births.
even if u give small amount of money to street begger then that begger will have to pay that amount of money back to that donner with interest in current or next birth.
similarly a child gets money from parents only due to previous birth account with interest. thats why some times even after taking birth in rich family child does not get good financial supports from rich families due to limited previous birth account.

if u plant mango tree then surely u will get mango in future. and if u plant cactus then u will have cactus in future.
so god only gives u what u dreserve, and whether u deserve good or bad its upon u. cuz god has given u intllect to judge and mind to think and body to action.

u may think that killing somebody is crime, but actually even to think about killing a person, or to abusing a person in thinking is also crime.

see when the world bank was hitted by airplane, it was an instant shock. but the seed of that shock the first thought of doing this. everything begins by thought.
and so god says that the criminal thoughts are also crime.
as to keep bad lusty eyes on somebody is also crime under criminal eyes category.
