Michael Thornton and Janeen Snyder

Michael Thornton and Janeen Snyder

Michael ForrestThornton (born 1955): was a business man who owned hair salons in Rialto, California. Thornton was accused of molesting a 6 year old girl. He has a son from a previous marriage. And a daughter with his second wife Pamela. Thornton was physically abusive towards Pamela often strangling her and even putting a gun to her head and threatening to kill her. He was also abusive to his son and his daughter.

Janeen Marie Snyder (born: Sept 26th,1979):  Janeen Snyder was a run away prostitute meth addict. Her mother kicked her out of her house when she was 15 for sleeping with her boyfriend.

Crimes:  Thornton and Snyder met in 1996 when Thornton's daughter (then 16) wanted a friend (Snyder) to move in with them as she had nowhere to go as she was a meth addicted prostitute. Which worked out perfect for Michael as he loved meth and sex with young girls.
 They targeted young girls as to Michael's sick sexual fantasies. Janeen was used as bait to lure the girls in so they could both sexual exploit them, rape them, then kill them.
Murder of Jesse Kay Peters
  On March 26th, 1996 the first murder occurs. Jesse Peters is the daughter of Cheryl Peters, who worked for Michael Peters in a hair salon that he owned. One day in a heated argument with Michael Thornton Cheryl Peters quit her job on the spot taking other hair dresses along with her. Angered by the event Thornton scopes out the Peters house and gets Janeen to lure Jesse out of the house, into the car, and then over to his house.
  Once they got Jesse to the house Thornton handcuffed her to the bed and raped her as Janeen watched. He then took her to the bathtub and drowned her. Then hacked her up into containers and then hucked her body into the Pacific Ocean. Thornton's wife even testified against him saying that he had heard him say he had killed a young girl and dumped her remains in the Pacific Ocean.
  Thornton and Snyder have never been charged in the death of Jesse Peters. Jesse Peters Charly Project.

Murder of Michelle Curran
  In 2001 5 years after the murder of Jesse Peters the duo heads to Las Vegas, NV and finds Michelle Curran. Janeen talks to Michelle gains her trust and tells her to come into a vehicle where she can not leave as Thornton tells her he has a gun. They kept her for several weeks molesting her. After awhile they felt she had to go. They found a horse ranch in Ribidioux, California. They found a room with ropes and tied her up. Then Janeen shot and killed Michelle. Her nude body was discovered almost a week later with a bullet hole in the head.

Other Notes: This is just beyond me. This woman is on death row and they allow her to have a dating profile let alone use a computer? Beyond me. I found this profile while googling her name.http://www.cowtowninfo.com/personals/f078/f07-866.htm

    1. They both should already be dead. Fucking death row, what a waste of our tax money?! What's the point if having it if they r still alive and obviously guilty

  2. Learn the facts before you condemn Janeen. She was manipulated by men at a very young age and essentially Brian washed by Thornton. In a sense, she is a victim herself. He should be on death row, not her.

    1. That was a proven to be untrue in court. She knew exactly what she was doing. You are a psychopath yourself to even speak of word of good about these scum balls.

    2. I do not agree with you.She is a psychopath herself, do not let her looks fool you!

    3. They are both where they belong - on Death Row. I understand about being manipulated etc. but it was Janeen herself who fired the bullet into Michelle's head. She participated in two murders and numerous sexual assaults. It is pretty hard to feel sorry for her. I'll feel sorry for the victims and their families instead.

    4. Um...I actually KNEW her personally. Here is what gets me..you are defending someone blindly. She was mean. Really mean. She enjoyed hurting people. She was proud of what she did and even confessed to it. She is not a good person and deserves to be where she is. Don't be fooled.

  4. Actually that is not a dating site and inmates are not allow to use the internet. You should really try not to let your emotions overrule your sensibilities... especially when you are writing an article. It is a website for pen pals. People can correspond with inmates via snail mail.

  5. I could have been their victim. I knew her briefly back in 1995 and she tried to get me into the vehicle with the tinted windows and I said no way! I'm so glad I didn't because I wouldn't be here today.

  6. I love it when the worst of the worst are properly punished. And just being on death row is the punishment to me, not the actual execution. And California keeps on piling them in and letting them languish - Good. The crime this duo was convicted of was BRUTAL - violent rape and torture over "several weeks" ending with the poor girl being shot in the head while strung up naked with ropes on some horse ranch. RIP

    And please, somebody said Janeen Snyder was also a victim in this. Okay, maybe at the time of the "first" murder in 1996 when she was 17 (meth addict, prostitute, dysfunctional upbringing, blah blah blah) that could be kinda true. But not at age 22, for the murder she's convicted of. Some people need to grow up and quit being so naive. God only knows what these 2 were doing during the 5 years in between.

    1. So he's guilty of being old or just being white? I imagine morons who adopt the casual racism of 'white trash' would be mortally offended by any reference to the black variety, an idiom which - purely coincidentally of course - doesn't appear to exist. Cretinous swill.

  13. FYI Thornton has 2 sons. Not one. At least some information on here is not correct.

  14. There are no computers for the inmates on death row. They send their information to the pen pal agency by third-party.

  15. I am Jessie Peters aunt. Her abduction, torture and murder has altered my life. I grieve for her to this day. I cried for 10 years every day. Yes that was her story in Wicked Attraction and that was my sister who worked at his salon. She was a child of 14 and was still wearing braces on her teeth. They enjoyed hurting people. They just had their 32nd appeal for "time served". They deserve death immediately. He had a lot of money maybe that helps delay the sentance. My niece was brutalized and chopped up. How can someone who loved her get over that? Anyone who pities those killers is just stupid. Pity misplaced. If it was someone you loved try to pity them then! They had planned to get girls pregnant and sell the babies to other pedophiles. Thank God they were caught before that could happen.

    1. I agree with you 100%. Bullets should of been put in their brains years ago. I feel horrible for your loss.

  16. For one thing you're wrong he has 2 sons from his first marriage not just one. If you did your homework you would have known that. Now don't get me wrong they should get death. But he tried to take the wrap for that crazy psycho. His sentence was pled down to life in prison. Now for whatever he did I believe in an eye for an eye especially with Family.. And I'll treat him as such.

    1. Who cares about the number of sons. This is an outrage! YOU are mistaken. It is not pled down. They both got death. I hear from the courts regularily.

  17. It's the victims who should be pitied, and NOT these two twisted murderers. I read "Beauty Killers", and I watched the "Wicked Attraction" episode about Snyder and Thorton - I was horrified
    by their sick crimes. They are truly evil and deserve to be on death row. Their endless appeals are a source of cruel torment for the families of Jessie Peters and Michelle Curran.
