AA Member Corey Dean Thomas and multi convicted violent felon murdered a woman after meeting her at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. This man was court mandated to attend AA meetings and on probation at the time he strangled and stuffed her body into a crawl space at her apartment. This is similar to the Karla Brada murder by a man she also met at an AA meeting. Karla Brada’s parents are suing Alcoholics Anonymous World Services.
Thomas had four violent felonies to his name when mandated to AA meetings!
He was released from prison in June. He pleaded guilty in Ramsey County District Court in 2009 to two counts of second-degree assault. According to those charges: Thomas had been drinking and argued with his then-girlfriend, who was trying to break up with him. He punched her in the head and body a few times and pushed her to the floor.
The girlfriend’s stepfather tried to pull Thomas away. Thomas pulled a box cutter and cut the man and the girlfriend on their heads, the complaint said.
Thomas threatened to murder everyone in the house and chased a 14-year-old with the box cutter, court documents show. He later told police that although he had no memory of committing the acts, voices in his head told him to do it.
This is the demographic that attend AA, yet they are campaigning teens to go to the same meetings with no one in charge, or professionally trained. In fact many Teen Drug Courts are mandating minors to attend as well. When is this madness going to end?
