Let’s say you murdered someone. How would you get rid of the body?


A Florida mom convicted of cooking her neighbor after stabbing, strangling and dismembering him following an apparent money has been sentenced to life in prison.

Angela Stoldt, 42, will now die behind behind bars after being sentenced in Volusia County on Friday, but showed no remorse as the decision was handed down.

Authorities say Stoldt tried to cremate 36-year-old James Sheaffer’s body in April 2013 by putting several body parts in an oven and in pots on the stove, including a foot, a leg and both arms.

When that didn’t work, she put his body parts in bags and had her teenage children help her scatter them in different places near their home in Deltona, telling them she was trying to dispose of a deer she had hit with the car.

The prosecution say Stoldt drugged her neighbor Sheaffer before driving him to Osteen Cemetery in Deltona, stabbing him in both eyes with an ice pick, and choking him with a cord.

If she does get out of prison, I don’t think she’ll have anyone joining her for dinner.

On the morning of April 3, 2013, Stoldt, with her two children in tow, picked up her neighbor from his work at Blue Diamond Limousines and drove to her home on Horseshoe Terrace, where the two drank vodka and peach schnapps cocktails.

But according to court filings, the mother of two spiked her neighbor’s beverage with a prescription pain medication, which she had stolen from her father knowing that it causes drowsiness, especially when mixed with alcohol.

Stoldt then allegedly loaded the drugged man into her car and drove to the Osteen Cemetery after dropping the kids off at her parents’.

Will said Stoldt then drove to her home and parked in the garage, where she cut up Sheaffer’s body using a knife and a saw.

She then moved the body parts one by one into her kitchen.

‘She took him into the house piece by piece. … The very same house she shares with her two teenage children and she cooked him in her oven and stove. She started with the oven but when the smoke and smell became unbearable she realized that she might get caught,’ Will told the court.

Thats when Stoldt allegedly began boiling some parts on the stove.

Sheaffer’s head and torso were not found, testified Dr. Marie Herrmann, the medical examiner for Volusia County.

However a soup pot was recovered that contained Sheaffer’s thigh bone, knee cap and some soft tissue.

I have no idea what she thought making a stew would accomplish.  It doesn’t seem like she thought this whole murder lark through from end to end.

    Ok who have you topped, the Aussie pest, KDC, Fisher, Hager, Winnie, Little ??

    • phronesis

      Winnie is pretty much the walking dead all ready so special measures will be required. Not to mention that natural decomposition is out as he is completely pickled in alcohol.

    • Reaper

      You would need a pretty big oven for KDC.

  • Where is Mr Wu and his pigs when you need him?

      Reminds me of a story one of my SAS mates related from a deep incursion in Vietnam. Following rustling noises and subsequent silenced rounds going in, a wild pig was discovered deceased. It was agreed that the pig should be consumed until my mate pointed out “they eat the dead bodies, don’t you know”. The pig was buried and the unit moved on.

    I always thought chop the body up and put the pieces wrapped in plastic into a recycle bin. And then let the council dispose of it (I mean even with Len Brown as Mayor they still have to be useful for *something*).

    • caochladh

      Far too messy. Just put the feet in a big bucket, fill with ready mix, then dump it out past the three mile limit – job done!

    I would buy them a membership of the Labour Party… they’d soon be a part of the missing million.

    Or maybe a crayfish pot without a buoy… seal off the entry with extra wire… a few extra rocks… deep water…

      On the money JS, as a commercial crayfisherman I must concur with your method.
      We once tried using a whole chicken as bait, all that remained in the bait holder was an egg.

  • Yeah, right, whatever…

    I reckon Bricktop has it sussed. To quote him on the subject:

    “You’re always gonna have problems lifting a body in one piece.
    Apparently the best thing to do is cut up a corpse into six pieces and pile it
    all together.
    And when you got your six pieces, you gotta get rid of them, because it’s no
    good leaving it in the deep freeze for your mum to discover, now is it?
    Then I hear the best thing to do is feed them to pigs. You got to starve the pigs for
    a few days, then the sight of a chopped-up body will look like curry to a
    You gotta shave the heads of your victims, and pull the teeth out for
    the sake of the piggies’ digestion. You could do this afterwards, of course,
    but you don’t want to go sievin’ through [redacted], now do you?
    They will go through bone like butter. You need at least sixteen pigs to finish the job in one sitting, so be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm. They will go through a
    body that weighs 200 pounds in about eight minutes. That means that a single
    pig can consume two pounds of uncooked flesh every minute. Hence the
    expression, “as greedy as a pig”.”

      We really didn’t need to know about this.

    • Sunshine

      How do you know this gruesome stuff?

  • Reaper

    I believe the traditional method in this country of disposing of your murdered neighbours is know as a hangi.

  • terrynaki

    Easier way to get rid of a body, put him on the Labour list he will disappear every three years never to be seen again,

    unless they are looking for a leader.

  • LisaGinNZ

    Oh my… well at least she can get a prison inmate job…
    ….(wait for it)…
    in the kitchen of course….

    It’s hard to beat Victor the Cleaner’s acid bath in The Assassin (Harvey Keitel/ Bridget Fonda) also copied in Breaking Bad.

    How about in Len’s lair?
