Micheal and Wiremu Curtis, Lisa Kuka, Micheal Pearson and Oriwa Kemp
You know how it is when you’re hanging out with your buddies, having a few drinks and a few laughs. You crack a few lame jokes and pull a few party tricks out of your hat. Some of the old favorites are “The Blue Flame” and “Spin the Bottle” or better yet “Shove the Baby in the Clothes Dryer until She Bleeds from the Head.” Oh and what about the one where you lift the baby up high and then drop her to the ground????
What’s that you say? You have never played that one? Not ever?
It was a favorite of Wiremu Curtis, 19 and Micheal Curtis, 22. They would play this game, and many, many others with little Nia Glassie, while her mum, 22 year old Lisa Kuka and her cousin, 20 year old Micheal Pearson and his partner, 18 year old Oriwa Kemp watched and laughed.
On August 3rd 2007 Nia Glassie was pronounced dead after lapsing into a coma 36 hours before as a result of bleeding between her skull and her brain.
The Curtis brothers, Kemp, Pearson and Lisa Kuka were soon questioned and arrested on charges relating to Nia’s death.
During their investigation, local police found that a number of adults, both family members and neighbors, were aware of the neglect and abuse Nia was subject to…but did nothing to stop it.
A child witness to Nia’s constant plight has told a jury that Nia Glassie’s tormentors would not let her rest because they liked to hurt her. She said that brothers Micheal and Wiremu kicked the little girl three times in the head in the hours before she died, stating that they kicked her, “hard as a rock” and that Nia “then started to fall asleep.”
Micheal Curtis denied kicking Nia, telling the court she had fallen from his shoulders and hit her head on the ground.
The child witness (who cannot be named) also stated that Nia was “smashed up” by the Curtis brothers’ every day. She was there to witness the clothes dryer incident and described it in detail. “They shoved her in there and turned it on. She went round and round until her head bled. She was stuffed in there and they turned it on for about five minutes, and then they turned it off and she was hot. Boiling hot.”
The one thing constant in little Nia’s life was torment. The “games” she endured and suffered through included:
* Being kicked in the face, causing her nose to bleed.
* Being hit and slapped punched and jumped on.
* Having objects such as shoes thrown at her.
* Being subjected to verbal insults, such as being told she was ugly and stupid.
* Being forced into a T.V cabinet drawer.
* Getting dragged through the sandpit half naked causing friction burns.
* Getting shoved into piles of rubbish.
* Being made to bathe in cold water in the middle of the harsh New Zealand winter.
* Being folded into a sofa bed and sat on.
* Getting flung against a wall.
* Being held high in the air and then dropped to the floor.
* Being used for adult wrestling moves, copied from a PS2 game.
* Being whirled rapidly on a rotary clothes line until she was flung off.
* Getting put into a tumble dryer and spun on high temperature.
* Having her head and feet dangled into the fire place…while it was lit.
* Being kicked repeatedly in the head because she was crying.
* Getting left dying in a coma for 36 hours while mum and her friends’ party and think up new “games” to play with Nia.
Thankfully, the jury didn’t like the games any more than Nia did, and Wiremu Curtis and Micheal Curtis were found guilty in Rotarua High Court, in New Zealand, of murder.
Nia’s mother, Lisa Kuka was found guilty of 2 manslaughter charges relating to lack of protection and failure to seek medical help for her critically injured daughter.
Nia’s cousin, Micheal Pearson and his partner Oriwa Kemp were found not guilty of manslaughter in relation to her death. They were however found guilty along with the Curtis brothers of numerous other charges against the child.
They are all awaiting sentencing.
Justice Judith Trotter broke down following the verdicts and offered the jury counseling.
Editor’s comment: You know it’s bad enough when an adult hurt a kid because the adult gets angry. It’s even worse when a child is molested by a pedophile, but if you look at it as part of the big picture, the son of a bitch is just doing what pedophiles do. But these bastards killed Nia Glassie because it was fun. Think about that for a second. These less than humans didn’t get pleasure from causing pain, like a sadist would, they got a good laugh. These deviant little shits tortured a three year old girl to death because they thought it was FUNNY. I was so mad the first time I read this story I snapped my damn Sharpie in half. How do you punish people like this, or maybe a better question would be, how do you create people like this? Garbage like this wasn’t born, it wasn’t even hatched. It was excreted from the mother-thing like some kind of human fecal matter, its stench befouling anyone and anything that dared to approach. And the only way to deal with it is to do what we always do with such things….Flush’em!
Do Micheal and Wiremu Curtis, Lisa Kuka, Micheal Pearson and Oriwa Kemp deserve Hell?
