A 22-year-old pregnant woman due to give birth in July was savagely killed by her ex-boyfriend, who then cut off her head and threw it in a dumpster!
The family of Liese Dodd is now preparing for a funeral instead of a baby shower.
Authorities in Alton, Illinois, have charged her ex-boyfriend, Deundrea Holloway, with murder in connection with Dodd’s brutal death.
In an emotional video posted to Facebook, Alton Police Chief Marcos Pulido called Holloway, 22, “a monster” who “savagely killed” the pregnant woman with whom he’d had a two-year on-again, off-again relationship.
Pulido called Dodd’s killing “beyond reprehensible.”
“It’s abominable,” he said. “It is completely terrible what happened to her.”
Pulido said in the video that Dodd was due to deliver her first child in July, and her baby shower was scheduled for the end of this month.
Dodd’s mother, Pulido noted, was the person who found her headless body in her home when she went to check on her after not hearing from her for “a few days.”
Her decapitated head was found later in a nearby dumpster. Police did not disclose how long she had been dead when she had been found.
Authorities told local affiliate KMOV that Dodd was decapitated, and that her head was later placed in a dumpster.
In addition to two counts of first-degree murder, Holloway faces two counts of intentional homicide of an unborn child, one count of dismembering a human body, concealment of homicidal death and a several motor vehicle charges.
Pleas have not been entered, either by Holloway or on his behalf. It was unclear as of publication if he has a lawyer.
KMOV spoke to Heidi Noel, Dodd’s mother.
“She was just a bright light that cared for everyone,” Noel told the station. “She had a big heart.
She’d do anything for anyone. She’d go out of her way to help people.”
Dodd grew up in Illinois.
“She had attended college and was planning on going into the medical field,” Noel said. “I’m a nurse, and, so, she was toying with heading in that direction.”
Added the grieving mom, “I just wish she would’ve known how loved she was. That she wouldn’t have ever been alone, [and] that she could’ve gotten out of this relationship and had a full life.”
It has not been disclosed if Holloway was the father of the unborn child, but it is believed that he is not. His family says he is “not a monster” and has had a long term struggle with mental illness and paranoia.
He was arrested in Gillespie, Illinois, police say. He is being held at the Alton police department on a $2 million bond. It is yet to be determined if he is mentally fit to stand trial.
Holloway was Black and Dodd was white.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WHITE GIRLS LAY DOWN WITH DARKIES !!!
A shame to happen to a young girl! Should know better to cross into unknown territory! But you pay the price messed with outside your tribe!

I must be banned my comments are not being put on this page thank God for freedom of speech just not here
PEOPLE!!!!! COLOR AND POLITICS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS. One crazy idiot killed his girlfriend and his own child…..period, full stop, This was a disgusting, evil act, perpetrated by an ugly, morally corrupt, evil person. Who care what color either party was. Any person who behaves this way, does this to another person or even an animal needs to be put away for a long long time, where this would get political is if District Atty.‘s and judges won’t/don’t uphold the law.
Doesn’t matter what race was involved, just know that the world is filled with the righteous and the unrighteous. White, Black, Asian, etc all do the same shit. Just be righteous and do the right thing. I’m sorry that this happened and feel bad for the families involved. Try to put yourself in others perspective. Watch what you say this is someone’s family member.
HIS FAMILY MAY NOT THINK HE IS A MONSTER HE IS AN EVIL MONSTER AND NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE I SEE A LOT OF JEALOUSY IN THIS RELATIONSHIP HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING
SAD FOR THIS YOUNG GIRL HER CHILD AND HER FAMILY MY CONDOLENCES HE IS ALSO A COWARD TO DO THIS TO THIS GIRL RIP MOM AND CHILD
If Jeffrey Dahmer is mentally fit to stand trial so is this psychopath!
Simply horrifying so sad for the young mom to be parents! and I’m angry with the parents of the murderer because they’re justifying their sons right to kill & in such a horrific way!! It’s becoming a cop out to say people are mentally unstable I think their son deserves the same death that he gave the mother to be!
Mixed race relationships they never work there’s always that tension between the races and a black guy doesn’t have the balls to be a man when he loses his white girl and when a white girl goes black she’s not welcome back
