Woman almost killed in a domestic abuse incident in Roaring Creek

Steven Gentle

Alry Rose Sardido was murdered on Saturday, and later that night another woman from Roaring Creek narrowly escaped the same fate. Just after ten that night Police were called to a house where they observed bloodstains on the front steps. Their investigation led them to the Western Regional Hospital where they found Joanna Longsworth fighting for her life. The woman claims that she was attacked while sleeping by a man she should have been able to trust. Longsworth could not talk because she received stab and cut wounds to her neck. But by writing on a piece of paper she indicated to Police that she woke up to hear her two daughters screaming and her common-law husband, Steven Gentle, stabbing her in the throat.

She was attending to both children when she was assaulted by this person she was going out with. We have already picked him up and he has been charged for Attempted Murder.”

  2. Steve Gentle is a coward who beats women says:

    what is it about roaring creek?

    They had a nut case murderer a few months ago trying to kill the police.

    A few years ago a UB student & former beauty queen becomes best friends with a women to steal her baby, chops up the mother with four local men helping her (body never found), so she can claim the baby is from her ex boyfriend so he will marry her.

    what is it about roaring creek?
    something in the water? inbred? way they are raised?
    They seem to lack of human values.
    can’t be that many people living there.
    Somebody living there should write a book about the world of Roaring Creek.
