Wisconsin man murders former co-worker who spurned his advances. Telling police it was "easy" to kill her.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

A Wisconsin man who killed a co-worker after she spurned his advances told police he held off killing her for a day so he could practice with his newly purchased gun. 

Christopher O’Kroley, 26, was taken into custody after killing grocery store co-worker, Caroline Nosal, 24, after her harassment complaint led to O’Kroley’s suspension and eventual firing. 

O’Kroley shot Nosal three times Tuesday in the parking lot of the Madison grocery store after getting former co-workers to share her work schedule, reports WKOW. 

Questioned by detectives, O’Kroley said “it was easy to kill” Nosal who had turned him down because “she had ruined my life” when she complained about his harassment which led to his job loss. 

O’Kroley admitted that he had purchased the gun right after he was fired, but held off killing Nosal immediately so he could practice using the firearm since he had never fired one before.

O'Kroley claimed that he was going to kill himself as well, but apparently that wasn't as easy so he was arrested by local police after a gun battle in a mall.

And that kids is why mandatory background checks, and a waiting period are so important, before purchasing a firearm.

    Wait a minute, he was arrested after a gun battle in the mall? So he walked away with his life intact? Oh that's right, he's white... My bad.

      Yep, the police take white people alive, but a person of color will get the death penalty on the spot, (EVEN when they are unarmed).

      And sometimes before they commit a crime...

    Unfortunately, unless the guy has a record, or unless he casually mentioned WHY he was buying a gun, how would a background check have stopped him? I am for more checks, but in this case, I doubt he would have been stopped from buying the gun.

      Sally, did you miss this part?

      "...and a waiting period are so important...."

      Gee, if they'd just waited another day, or week, or month, or ..... she'd still be alive. Because of course he'd never think of a blunt object. Or of strangling. Or of ... well, you get my point.

    G, he probably went through the background check and waiting period. It all points to state of mind. Problem is his work actions never got to the law enforcement level.

    Margaret Atwood once said, "Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them." The woman in this case did everything right--told the man flat-out that she didn't want to date him, reported his escalating harassment to management...and he still killed her because men are entitled to the hottest chicks, amirite?

      Women know that confronting a batterer, harasser, rapist, etc. is a possible death sentence. There is no "did everything right" here. You put your life on your line when you dare to deny a potentially lethal male.

      Don't forget that some of these guys harbor their fury for months and years. You aren't safe just because he didn't kill you in the first week.

    2. To me, that should be the focus of the article.

      We know how easy it is to get a gun. We know all that shit.

      What really needs to be hammered home is the number of these killings. Men are killing women who refuse to go out with them.

      It is no longer about battered wives or girlfriends. Now every women is in danger if she turns down any man.

      What kind of world is this when men think they are entitled to own women as property. Because that is what this is. Women are not allowed to say no. They are not allowed to have a differing opinion, refuse a man or act differently than what he had decided she should. He wants to go out with her so she had to go out with him or die.

      This is simply sick.

      It's not an isolated incident. Look it up. It's happening more and more.

      It's not enough men have to control a woman's right to choose. Now they have to control a woman's right to CHOOSE.

    Fucking fuck! That pathetic piece of shit gets to handle rejection in such a way? SHE ruined HIS life, so he takes hers? I hope that co-worker gets charged as an accomplice, why would you share her schedule when she feared and avoided that man-child?

      I had a job several years ago that I had to quit because my foolish coworkers thought nothing of giving out my work schedule to whomever called or asked. I work in a retail setting so dealing with the public is a day to day thing, but the idiots I worked with as well as my (male) boss thought there was nothing wrong with giving out schedules. Amazing, isn't it?

    I hope they bring a 1st degree murder charge, because he showed premeditated purpose by asking co-workers for her schedule

    This guy reminds me of selfish narcissistic bullies like Trump who just have to have their way, especially with women.

    What a sad loss of a beautiful young woman

    Another white priveldge headline

    Instead of saying mentally ill stalker kills an ex coworker, they add in words like "spurned" to make it seem like there was a relationship of some kind.

    1. Anonymous8:11 AM

      It also puts some of the blame on the woman who "spurned" him. If only she's been nicer and more compliant, she wouldn't have been killed.

    2. Goes to motive.

      This is the third time I've read of a woman being killed for refusing to date or go out with a man in the last few weeks.

      It's happening a LOT.

      I think it is an indication of the sickness in this country where women are being considered sex objects and they rights to choose or have an opinion on anything are considered to be against the patriarchy or whatever men are thinking they are.

      They make all the decisions and if you cross them you pay with your life?

      Isn't that what happens in the Middle East and India?

      Is this some sort of new Talibangelical fundamentalist American spin on honor killing?

    Women and girls are afraid to confront potential murderers. Astonishing isn't it? Why are they so wimpy. Maybe it's because if they complain or confront harassment, the guy might just be the kind that murders over a little thing like that. Gun, knife, vehicle homicide, arson, whatever, the guy can pick his weapon. You just end up dead. This happens every day in the USA. Women and girls don't want to die. Imagine that!

    Every news story about a man murdering a "spurned" female tells women what the "safer" choice is.

    Another good guy with a gun...opps, pulled the trigger, now a bad guy with a gun. This is getting so embarrassing for our country, i am ashamed when i travel to fessing up to being american because of this idiotic problem with guns and short penis's

    Part of my job description is to show people to the door, instruct women where and how to fill out harassment complaints, and when need be, file restraining order forms with the police that aren't worth the paper they're written on.
    I've made it a point NOT to be alone with the person when I terminate their employment, I make crystal clear it's their work performance or lack there of that's caused it to happen, that it's business and not personal, etc etc etc. So far, so good, nothing this horrendous has happened, but it could at anytime,
    Am I aware of my surroundings? Change my route to work from day to day? Not publish everyone's hours where they can be seen by anyone, etc. I've never felt the need for a gun, but it does bother me just knowing these people are out there, and no one knows who's armed, where they live, etc.
    I agree with the poster upthread, if the race was different, the terminology WOULD change.
    Why does a waiting list and tighter gun control become a big deal to these people? Wouldn't they feel safer if the folks in their well regulated militias were of sound mind and had no criminal gun charges?

      "...instruct women where and how to fill out harassment complaints, and when need be, file restraining order forms with the police that aren't worth the paper they're written on..."

      Many women rightly believe that getting a restraining order is the equivalent of suicide given that they know the man will attempt to murder them. Of course, the man might kill them without the restraining order. But sometimes the restraining order is just enough to send the man over the edge into murderous rage.

    I would be willing to be the very first thing his lawyer will do is demand a competency test and then plead not guilty by reason of insanity.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
