Danielle Sachs, Alleged Brutal Killer of Wendy's Man, a Beautiful Mother and Lover of Horoscopes
On December 15, the day Danielle Sachs and her boyfriend allegedly dined at a Fort Lauderdale Wendy's, met a man there, went back to his house, and suffocated him, Sachs' horoscope mood was "curious," and she was told to "keep an eagle eye out for new people."
Apparently, she did. According to police, Sachs, 33, and her boyfriend, Jonathan Forster, 27, met a 70-year-old Jeffrey Blaugrund at the fast-food eatery where the older man offered the young couple a place to stay for the night, which was the last time anyone saw Blaugrund alive.
On November 1, after investigating a terrible odor emanating from Blaugrund's apartment on Oaks Drive, his place was found "ransacked" and the old man's dead body inside. He'd been suffocated.
But this mystery goes deeper.
Sachs, who already had four drug felonies to her name, is also, if Facebook is any indication, a loving and beautiful mother.
Sachs, who'd attended Florida Atlantic University and Broward College, penned this as her bio: "I have a 3-year-old little baby girl named Sierra Skye. She is my world. She has changed my life and made me a better person." Every day, her profile is updated with a fresh Cancer horoscope.
Her favorite quotation? "Just for today, do good. And good will come to you. Everything happens for a reason. There's no such thing as coincidences. What doesn't kill you will make you stronger."
It also mentions that she's in a relationship with a man who, we can only imagine, is Jonathan Forster.
His bio states: "Just doin me, work hard and play harder," though it also mentions he's "self-employed." He has a slew of drug and theft felonies behind him as well and now faces first-degree murder charges along with Sachs.
Sachs, who appears to have a rather large support network in addition to her addiction problems, wrote this poem on August 25: "Love is like the life of a rose. It starts to bloom, then grows and grows. And then, my friend, as time goes by, that full-blossomed rose starts to die. Once it dies, one's heart will break -- and, pretty soon, yours too will ache."
That same day she also had another post thanking everyone who's been concerned about her. "Thanks for all the messages from everyone worried about me and checking on me," she wrote. "Love you guys ;)"
It was the same day she updated her profile picture.
