Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's fangirls

Those brown eyes, that curly hair, that "Rolling Stone" cover photo. The startling and icky phenom had girls and women clamoring online that the surviving brother-suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was "too beautiful" to go to prison, "too beautiful" to be guilty. We haven't heard as much from them since the case has moved along, and since Tsarnaev's dead brother has been linked to the 2011 triple murder of some friends. Even Richard Ramirez, the serial-killer Night Stalker, who obliged the world by dying this year, had swooning female fans. And a 25-year-old girl vows that she's affianced to 79-year-old serial killer Charles Manson. Love conquers all -- all good judgment.
