Grant Ruffin Hayes and his wife Amanda Perry Hayes were arrested Monday and charged with the grisly murder of Hayes' ex-girlfriend.

The partial remains of Laura Ackerson, 27, were found in a creek near Richmond, Texas, outside Houston. Police believe Grant Hayes, 32, and Amanda Hayes, 39, murdered Ackerson in Wake County on July 13, then drove her body to Texas where they hacked her to pieces and disposed of her remains in a creek.

Hayes was the father of Ackerson's two sons, Grant, 3, and 1-year-old Gentle. The children were the subjects of a tense custody battle dating back to 2010 when a judge granted Mr. Hayes temporary custody of the boys. Ackerson had the boys on the weekends.

The judge found Ackerson to be an unfit mother because she was unemployed and still lived with Mr. Hayes' parents. She was scheduled to attend a hearing on August 15, at which time she planned to ask for joint custody of her sons.

Friends say they last saw Ackerson on July 13, when she dropped her sons off at their father's home. Her business partner, Chevon Mathes, reported Ackerson missing when she failed to pick the boys up on Friday, July 15, for the weekend.

"She always had her little boys and she seemed like a great mother," Mathes told the News Observer.

The creek where Ackerson's remains were found is about 100 yards from Hayes’ sister’s home, according to Fort Bend County Chief Deputy Craig Brady. A machete and several coolers were recovered from a shed at the home.

Raleigh investigators were still at the scene searching the creek for the rest of Ackerson's body on Monday. High temperatures and hot, murky conditions of the water are hampering the search for Ackerson's remains.

Divers from the Richmond Fire Department scoured Oyster Creek on Sunday from about 4:30 p.m. to dusk, but didn’t find all of the remains. This morning they returned, joined by a dive team from the Houston police department.

It’s slow, hot work. The water in the creek is dark brown with silt, and the divers, clad in heat-trapping wetsuits, can’t see underwater at all so they’re using their hands and sonar devices in the search.

    That's just horrible. Those poor babies.

    Both of them LOOK crazy!

  • mirsmommy

    :wtf: is wrong with people?!?!?!? this guy got custody of his children because he felt she was "unfit", but then you kill her????? :wtf: times 2.

    RIP Laura. Sad that these two young boys now have to grow up without either of their parents.

  • renegadesince1985

  • blackdiamondthemodel

    People are sick ... My boyfriend child-hood bestfriend who just got out of jail doing 10 years just tried to commit the same crime with his girlfriend over a custody battle the same situation. Luckily the man didn't die but I hope they fry this couple as well as the couple we know here. Crazy part about it is they still won't get custody of the kids they will be in jail now for the rest of their lives ... So Stupid!

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    WHAT THE FUGG IS WRONG W/PEOPLE. FIRST, I'M SICK @ THE FACT THAT THE JUDGE FOUND THE MOM UNFIT BECAUSE SHE WAS UNEMPLOYED AND LIVED W/HIS PARENTS! If that's the case, thousands of parents are unfit becuase they are unemployed and live w/someone else. THAT'S BOGUS BULLCHIT WITHIN ITSELF! It cracks me up how wives feel like they are ENTITLED to the husbands ex-girlfriends children!

    Second, who the fugg agrees to help someone kill another person and then dismember them! It take a sick individual to dismember a person!

    Luscious, I agree, they better get those veins a' poppin!

  • mirsmommy

    They're from North Carolina, but dumped her body in Texas, so will they get charged in North Carolina? :shrugs:

    To continue my previous post, will they get charged in North Carolina if that's where they committed the crime???

    Ok there are a couple of things I don't understand.

    They said that the murdered mom lost custody because she was unemployed but later it stated that she had a business partner?

    And why the hell was she living with her babydaddy's parents?

    This entire situation is flucked from the floor up.

    And now these two children have neither parent and how are the grandparents going to explain that their father and stepmom murdered their mom?

    They should just send those two to hell. No.Excuse.Whatsoever!!

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    @MIRSM U RIGHT... DID THEY CHOP UP THE BODY IN TEXAS BUT KILLED HER IN NORTH CAROLINA?... I SAY LET TEXAS SWALOW THEY AZZ!!! :yes: <wife face!

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    @ MIRS....Morning, pumpkin. Yes, if they crime happened in North Carolina, that is where they will be charged!

    It was said that after she lost custody, she started her own marketing business, and was taking online courses at a community college.

    I'm thinking that she was living with his parents, because she either didn't have any relatives closeby, or she just doesn't deal with her family at all. :shrugs:

  • Mamacita

    @Tatted Well if she didn't have a job and didn't even have her own place I can see that as being unfit. How can she take care of her two children with no stable home and no income? If the husband had a job and a place of his own I can see why the judge ruled in his favor. The link says that she was working from home and taking classes. She was working on getting her life together and she never got her day in court to get joint custody. :(

    It takes a special type of sick individual to dismember a body!

  • mirsmommy

    @Tatted & Lakes, I think it said that they rented a UHaul, and bought ice to transport the body, so I think they did kill her in North Carolina. :sad: Either way, I hope they bury these grimy flucks under the jail!

    Mamacita, All I'm saying is that thousands of mothers should be unfit then! THAT'S ALL!

    @ MIRS....Whew, this chit right here! Back when I was 17, my ex boyfriend (yes I dated boys at one time) tried to kidnap me because I didn't wanna be with him anymore. Come to find out, his mother, who is/was a deputy sheriff was in on the plan!

  • Crickett

    I wonder if she has family, I read another post and it quoted the paternal grandmother and paternal aunt. I don't blame the family, but I think they knew that the father was crazy and she might be in harm's way.

  • Mamacita

    @Tatted That same thing happened to a girl I went to college with. The girl was dating this guy who was a busive and she broke it off. Her friends noticed that they hadn't seen her for a few days. When they tried to contact her to see where she was they couldn't reach her. THey called around and no one knew where she was and they reported her missing.

    Come to find out she had left with her ex from campus and that was the last tiem anyone saw her. The police questioned him and he admitted to killing her, cutting her up, and disposing of her body across town.

  • cheeks8683

    So apparently I need to figure out what type of air these folks these days are breathing because I'm not trying to catch the crazy thats going around...

    Wow!!!! Crazy as hell. I remember you said you dated men at one point. :lol: You would be surprised how many family members and friends will help fools do crazy, sick chit. SMH.

    Your old bf's moms probably came up with the plan.

  • http://youtu.be/8A2Mfu0Yc5Q chibytex

    I guess I'm unfit mother too...cause if me and my hubby split, I'd be up in Chicago alone with no job and no family.....

    THIS is where the state should step in and help mothers out with things like welfare and Section 8...not Keisha with 5 kids and 6 baby daddies (cause you know she got one on the way)

    The fukking court system is all fukk up...

  • StillASassyOne

    Well...I hope they charge both of their crazy azzes in goold ole' Texas!! Go ahead and get that operating table out and strapped up and get ole "Pointy" ready cause that's surely what's going to end up happening anyway.

    I say off em both now and be done with it.

  • AirForceGirl

    Everyday I wake and read the news and lose faith in Humanity. I try to give it a second chance everyday, and everyday is the same ol bullchit! This is sooo sad. Those poor babies! God bless this cruel world we are living in.

  • Tatted Diva AKA The Makeup Maven

    @ Mamacita & MIRS......I stop dating men when I was 23 and I held out that long out of fear of what people would say! BUT YES, I never saw the signs of him being crazy and as a matter of fact, I still wanted to date him @ the time but he broke it off with me. Once I started going on w/my life, that is when he wanted to PLAY CRAZY and chit!

    Ok, Did his family know that he was attempting to murder her?

    Was his family on her side in the custody issue?

    There just seems to be a lot of conflicts of interest in this situation.

    Hey Brown!!! :waves:

    I guess its true that everyone has the capacity to be crazy u just have to find someone what is your equal. See there is sane crazy (like I might go off on u and I may pour some bleach on ur work clothes if it gets to that point, u would have to do some real gutter stuff for me to even do that) and there is insane crazy (the story above). I wonder if crazy folks can scout out an equally crazy individual? Like some type of radar? Cause if I was dating a dude and he told me to help him to kill his ex ummmmm...he would have to kill me in the process because I'm to cute to go to prison. Shoot even if he is watching me and says I better not call the police I would text somebody and tell them to get me out of there. They need to come up with a 9-1-1 texting system for that very reason...

    Can we have like 5-7 straight days with no posts on people slicing, macing, punching, biting, kicking, shooting, & pinching someone else?
    I feel for all of those involved. Especially those children.
    I had an old classmate whose father killed his mother in front of him. & that classmate was then raised by his mom's twin sister. To say as an adult that boy has ISSUES would be an understatement.
    I can only imagine what the two little G's are going to go through.

    Just a sad sad story . Both they arses need to be fired dyed and layed to the side. The system needs to do to them what they did to the children's mother...dump they arses in a creek somewhere...so appalled by this and he probably would have done the same thing to his now wife had the same thing occurred. So :(!!!!

  • pointhimout

    wow, these stories are getting so crazy. Immediately, I think about the well educated, Emory grad who drove his kids to his sisters house, went to his estranged wife's place and killed her then killed himself.

    On paper, people lives look great, but man the reality or whats truly in a person's head washing all of that away.

They need to let her die slow so she can think about how she let a man take her under!!! Cute little boys...

    You have to be a very sick individual to cut up human flesh like that and furthermore drive for miles to dump it on the side of the road, they both deserve one another.
