EXCLUSIVE: The Hossencofft video you've never seen...

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

Diazien Hossencofft during 1994 Caribbean Cruise

(April 13, 2008) The back story: Prior to this Caribbean cruise, Diazien Hossencofft went on an Alaskan cruise. During the Alaskan cruise, he met two women (sisters).

A few years ago, I corresponded with one of those women. She told me Hossencofft was traveling with a much older woman in Alaska. I believe Hossencofft's traveling companion was the woman identified as "Sunny Blake" in my book, September Sacrifice.

Blake was very much Hossencofft's meal ticket, providing him with about $25,000 a month for "medical treatment" for the breast cancer that would ultimately claim her life.

While on the cruise in Alaska, "Dr. Hossencofft" learned that the two sisters would later be on a Caribbean cruise. Hossencofft made a point of making sure he'd be on that cruise, too.

And he was. You see some of it here.

This video was given to me by the woman I corresponded with a few years ago (one of the sisters on both cruises). I was also provided with a diary of sorts of concerning time spent on this cruise.

What you'll see here are a few scenes from the video. I've edited the video so that you cannot identify the sister who appears on camera. I've also bleeped-out a couple of moments when a woman's name is heard on the original footage.

Oh, and it's worth mentioning. Hossencofft was married to Girly Chew Hossencofft at the time of both cruises. While I cannot say it with certainty, it is quite likely that Diazien Hossencofft had told his wife that he had to leave town to go save a life with his cutting-edge science/medical abilities. Or maybe told Girly he had to give a lecture to some group of doctors out of state. Something along those lines...

 Snapped to feature Linda Henning

 *UPDATED* April 5, 2008


Convicted murderer Linda Henning is the focus of an upcoming episode of the Oxygen Network's program "Snapped."

"Snapped" producer Elizabeth Gibson tells me that the Henning episode is now scheduled to air April 13, 2008. The episode previously had been scheduled to air April 6, 2008.

Among the people interviewed for Snapped's Henning episode:

  • Steve Zachary, Henning's former boyriend and longtime friend
  • Felissa Garcia Kelley, Diazien Hossencofft's divorce attorney. She's also reportedly writing a trilogy about the case
  • "Pamela Hutton" (an alias used in September Sacrifice), member of two doll clubs also attended by Henning
  • Dave Pfeffer, private investigator hired by Henning's attorney
  • Mark Horner, author of September Sacrifice
  • Joline Gutierrez Krueger, reporter for Albuquerque Tribune


Court upholds woman's conviction for murder of Girly Chew Hossencofft

April 29, 2006

SANTA FE (AP) - The state Supreme Court has upheld the murder and kidnapping convictions of a woman for killing her ex-boyfriend's wife, whose body has never been found.

Linda Henning was sentenced to life in

prison for murdering Girly Chew Hossencofft, who disappeared in September 1999.

The Supreme Court, in an unanimous ruling issued Tuesday, overturned Henning's convictions on four counts of perjury but affirmed all other convictions, including felony murder, kidnapping, conspiracy to kidnap and tampering with evidence.

A jury convicted Henning in 2003, but spared her the death penalty. She was sentenced to life plus 43 1/2 years in prison.

Girly's husband, Diazien Hossencofft, was sentenced to a life prison term for her murder. He pleaded guilty in January 2002.

The Malaysian-born victim was reported missing by co-workers at an Albuquerque bank where she had worked as a teller. She had told co-workers that she was involved in a bitter separation from her husband and that if she did not show up for work, they should expect the worst.


Mark Horner discusses September Sacrifice in the following podcasts:


 Praise for September Sacrifice

"Horner, an Albuquerque television journalist, followed the case for almost
five years. He brings it to life with painstaking organization, chronicling the story with impeccable research and following
important characters and background.
It is a riveting read."

-New Mexico Magazine

"If there is a better story in the annals of true crime, I haven't seen it yet. Deftly told
by journalist Mark Horner, September Sacrifice is a stunning account of an
over-the-top sociopath that makes Bundy look like a Boy Scout and a charm
school dropout. An addictive and heart
pounding read."

Gregg Olsen
New York Times Bestselling Author of If Loving You is Wrong

"Mark Horner tells this incredible story of the life and death of Girly Chew Hossencofft
with the vivaciousness of a seasoned pro . . .
laying out detail after detail with fine
journalistic skill. September Sacrifice is one of the better true crime books to come out
this year--a true page-turner that has my literary (and criminal!) seal of approval. I promise you this true crime fans: you will not
forget Diazien Hossencofft, one of the most evil, vile, yet memorable, monsters to stomp his way through true crime pages in a long while."

-Investigative Journalist M. William Phelps, author of Perfect Poison and Lethal

"Horner skillfully compiles facts and recites dialogue from thousands of
pages of police supplemental files, court transcripts, and personal interviews."

-Weekly Alibi (Albuquerque)

"Mark Horner's September Sacrifice is masterful."

"Connoisseurs of true crime and students of narcissism will not be disappointed in
September Sacrifice. It is more fascinating than any three expensive Reganbook hardbacks combined, and for a fraction of the price. Horner distills the intricate details of the years-long investigation of Girly’s murder, the result of dedicated law enforcement, a philosophical district attorney, and complex forensic science, and exposes the myriad layers of Chavez’s convoluted parallel life of deception and debauchery."
