Man convicted in Craigslist murder of Navy wife:

In July of last year 20-year-old David Sparre was arrested for the brutal stabbing death of Tiara Pool in Jacksonville, Florida. The pair had met on craigslist either through the personals or casual encounters. Today justice was served as Sparre was convicted of first-degree murder.

Tiara Pool was a 21-year-old mother of two who was married to a man serving in the Navy but they were having marital problems. She met Sparre through craigslist and during their encounter Sparre stabbed her 89 times with part of the blade breaking off in her skull. Sparre also stole some of her possessions including her car, a Playstation, and a wireless router.

Sparre’s attorney admitted that Sparre killed Tiara but tried arguing that Sparre blacked out upon finding out that Tiara was married. Does this actually happen outside of soap operas? Thankfully the jury didn’t buy it and handed down a guilty verdict.

Sparre is more than eligible for the death penalty. The sentencing phase is set to take place starting December 13th.

Is it me or does it look like he’s taken well to prison life? Compare his mugshot to the picture above from his trial. He’s got the teardrop tattoos and the Vanilla Ice eyebrows.

Hopefully, his stay in prison before a date with the needle will be a short one.

  1. I remember his sister on here proclaiming his innocence and blaming the victim.  I wonder if she’ll be back.  She was amusing.


      1. I’m sure she graduated Magna Cum Laude.  Or, do correspondence courses not have that?

        Her brother sure is getting an education in Criminal Justice!
