Adam fan killed – update!

Sad, sad story. Terri Sanvicente, also known as glitteraquarius on twitter, died on Christmas eve. The mother of three was beaten to death by her children’s father – while the children and a babysitter overheard the whole scene. For the newsarticle, go here.

Terri was a big fan of Adam, and her twitterpage was filled with comments aimed at Adam himself, his band as well as other fans. She seemed like a genuine and happy person, who was enjoying life and her three young children – as well as everything Adam related.

Adam took his twitter to express his sorrow at this heartless deed: “My thoughts are with the children and babysitter of Terri Sanvicent. Terri had so much joy to share. Light and love to her memory.”

No words can express the sadness and cruelty of the event. Why would someone be so driven by hate to feel as if they have the right to take some else’s life? And especially in this case, such a beautiful, happy person as Terri, mother of young children and someone who was enjoying life to the max.. Sad.

Hate is pointless; and violence is never the answer. Never!!!!!

A facebook group has been created in her honor, where messages can be left for the family. Click here.

R.I.P. Terri.. May your soul find peace..

EDIT: For those who would like to honor her memory, a fund can be made to the Woman Shelter as tweeted by Adam! This is the link.

    Rest in peace dear beautiful ADAM LAMBERT fan! ADAM & his band, Glambs, Glamberts, Glambrits, Lambskanks, everyone is thinking of you & your children. They will be loved & supported!
    What a beautiful lady , Terry! Love your ADAM pants, those ar soooo coooolll!!!!! I think she’ll want to be laid to rest with those pants on!

  11. It’s very sad when things like this happen. A few years back a member of a church that I belonged to was killed by her estranged husband (there was a restraining order but obviously that didn’t do anything to protect the wife) in front of her younger son. He shot her (I think) 6 times. So many lives were deeply affected – her sons, the inlaws who loved her, co-workers, church family, friends. There are so many factors – sometimes alcohol & drugs play a role (not making an excuse, just part of the explanation) but I also think that men are “socialized” to see violence as somewhat “normal”. With all due respect to the sport, look at football, our national sport. Violence doesn’t seem to cause much of an uproar while any kind of sexual demonstration (i.e. Adam’s AMA performance) does. Doesn’t make much sense. And unfortunately the perpetrators in domestic violence don’t tend to get sentences that are adequate in length. Maybe this guy will get a longer sentence because of the media attention caused by Terri’s being an Adam fan – we can only hope. I’m sorry that I didn’t know Terri well although I recognize her Twitter name. Sucks sucks sucks. She will be missed. All we can do now is try to surround her family, including her 3 children, with light & love and also try to be there for one another on a daily basis.

  12. Terri, I pray for your eternal rest in peace for your soul and may the perpetual light shine upon you. I don’t know you, but we share a common love for ADAM. And I pray for your children’s welfare. It’s so sad that Christmas will always be a sad memory for them. May they find love and peace in their hearts though you may be gone forever. Rest in Peace. GOD bless your soul.

  13. Dianne Hill says:

    I was so sorry to hear of this sad event. My heart goes out to Terri’s children and the babysitter who had to witness such a horrible thing. I hope the bastard rots in hell for what he has done.

  14. I worked with the victims AND perpetrators of domestic violence in the professional career from which I am partially retired ….. the children, friends, extended family, community. I will never understand how a person so tortured and destroyed themselves by whatever hateful things have been done to them, can then go on and destroy someone else in a manner even more vicious. It makes no sense on any level and the only response to horrendous violence is to lock him up and leave him alone with his tortured thoughts, forever. One solace in this awful moment is that Terri experienced many moments of happiness as she opened herself to our Adamazing whose name she painstaking sewed on her jeans so the world could see her new joy. He exemplifies many fine qualities that we are all seeking in ourselves and others and Terri knew it! UIMA You inspire so many of us. RIP, sweet Terri.

  15. RIP Terri……God Bless your children…………

  16. Namaste to her children… the word tragedy is not enough…

  17. Horrible tragedy . . . what kind of rage would drive a person to beat someone else to death? On a lighter note, I LOVE her pants!!

  18. Guys, if you are interested, go to AO http://www.adamunofficial.com/us/node/1113503#comment-1115673 you will find Adams tweet there, and they are trying to set up a trust fund for Terri’s children, they are also asking for help with funeral arrangements. They are also in the process of setting up a trust fund for the children, I am sure that we all want to know that the children have all the love and support they can get at this difficult time. It is tragic what has happened to Terri, but I am sure she wants her children to be loved and well looked after.

    For those who doesn’t have twitter.Adam tweet this
    adamlambert RT @jambajim: AI fans are donating to this Houston shelter tonight in memory of Terri Sanvincente starting at 5 CST http://bit.ly/8YLM9d

    • Great idea to send a donation to those who can provide help to others in Terri’s situation! Good way to channel our anger that such a thing could ever happen. Rest in peace Terri; we will certainly pray for your children!

  20. This kind of behavior is so unacceptable in what is supposed to be a civilized society. Violence is never the answer – why couldn’t this guy control himself, or walk away? Now their children have no parents to look after them. If only they could have gotten help before something so tragic happened.

    Even more sad to think this all happened so near my hometown.

    • The picture of Terri was taken outside the American Airlines Center in Dallas this past summer. I recognize the outside of the building from the tour this summer.

        Dallas show is the one I attended, it was nice until it rained some & it was muggy, That 1 had to have been a sold out show, there were al ot of people. Never did run into Terry. I did meet two Glamberts. it was one of the best shows cuz MASTER ADAM came out for the M&G.
        He was grat too, he wore his Elvis hair, & just simply amazing. I saw his buddy the “Willie Nelson” guy. Met Michael Sarver’s grandmother & his dad was near. Met Kris too, got his pic.
        Can’t wait for Master ADAM’s solo concert!
        You know Terry will be w/ MASTER ADAM on NYE in spirit, front row seat too. That’s just crazy we were at the same show. Well, I hope she knows this now. Terry you’ll always be with us in our hearts!

      • Yes, I thought I recognized the picture of Terri from the Dallas concert as well. My daughter and I got to the arena very early in hopes of getting autographs, etc. before the show. Unless there were others there with the same incredible pants on, I remember seeing Terri and admiring her handiwork. I myself had done a little “be-dazzling” on my t-shirt and I was in awe of how she had managed those fantastic pants! I’m very saddened by the tragedy that her family has suffered. My dear sister is married to a bi-polar man – loving one minute, crazy and abusive the next. From what I understand from Terri’s story, she had at least attempted a separation or divorce from this man. I’m sure that she had to put on a happy and brave face for her children many times when she truly felt sadness and fear. My prayers are with her and her children.

  21. SO SORRY THAT A YOUNG MOTHERS LIFE WAS TAKEN.MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH HER FAMILY.ABUSE OF WOMEN RUNS RAMPID IN THIS COUNTRY.MY DAUGHTER USED TO WORK AT AWOMENS CENTER WHERE WOMEN COULD COME WITH THIER CHILDREN AND BE SAFE.

  24. Helen/Canada says:

    I have no words…my heart is aching. RIP Terri.

  25. RIP Terri. A great tragedy that someone who obviously so loved life and her family should be taken in this horrendous way. My thoughts and prayers are with her children, immediate family and friends.

  26. What a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with her children, that they will be taken care of by someone who loves them and gives them a good life. May Terri rest in peace and be a protective angel from heaven watching over her children!
    Let justice be served by what happened here. Who knows what goes through peoples minds when they perform such an act of hatred. One life gone, 3 children are orphaned and the mad man lives.
    I wish the whole world could just love one another and all the hatred and ugliness would disappear.
    love & peace

  27. WHAT A TERRIBLE STORY….LET’S ALL PRAY FOR HER AND HER 3 CHILDREN THAT SHE MAKES IT THRU THIS TERRIBLE ORDEAL….HE’S JUST AN ANIMAL TO DO THAT IN FRONT OF HIS OWN CHILDREN….DISGRACEFUL.

    • OH MY GOD….I DIDN’T REALIZE SHE PASSED AWAY…..THOSE POOR LITTLE CHILDREN….LET’S KEEP THEM IN OUR PRAYERS…..

  28. AdamRocks! says:

    🙁

  29. Heart breaking. I do hope the children find a soft place to land that is filled with love and joy and can help them recover and find love in life. Adam fans are held together with love!

  30. waveridergal says:

    Heartbreaking.

  31. I am so sorry to hear that Terri passed away. My prayers go out to her children, her babysitter, and to her family!

    Her face was so happy in the photo…ADAM gave her joy and love. She was one of us…enjoying ADAM and making new friends through ADAM.

    Let us all appreciate what we have, what we love, and all good things that we have in our lives.

    I am proud to be an ADAM fan…to see how we all gather together in this time of sorrow to comfort each other and to send our love to Terri.

  32. Hi Guys, this is a suggestion, I know how we are all thinking of how to raise funds for Terri’s children and other families in the same situation. One way would be to ask RCA Mangaement company to televise or live stream NYE Gridlock event, I know I would pay to watch especially if part of the money is going to a really good cause, I know that a lot of Adam’s fans, national and international will want. to watch this. RCA would raise enough funds to cover their costs as well as a really respectable fudn for Terri’s three children and for other families in the same situation. If you are in agreement with this suggestion why not go to http://www.adamunofficial.com/us/node/1113503#comment-1117865 and ask RCA to make arrangements, it is not too late.

  33. So sad. My heart goes out to her children and family, 🙁

  34. RIP

  35. staciegirlie says:

    Not going discuss the animal that did this to Terri. I’ll go off on a serious tangent. On another note, it’s great to donate to the shelter, but please don’t forget to donate to a fund that will be set up by her employers (Walgreen) later today.

  36. These 2 people once loved each other enough to get married and have a family.Therein lies the biggest tragedy. RIP Terry and love & light to the children.

  37. Heartfelt condolences to Terri’s family. What a tragedy!! This is just another beautiful woman our system has failed to protect. Laws need to be changed and for crap sakes, actually enforced! I hear so many stories of battered women that have to live their life on the run because of these sick bastards that stop at nothing to find them and hurt/kill them. No one should have to live in fear.
    Now these kids will have that final memory of their Mommy forever replaying in their minds. Christmas for kids should have been happy “Santa Clause” type memories but unfortunately for these kids that got taken away. God bless the little ones.

    She was a friend of mine and I miss her so much. This makes me sick.. I know she is watching over us but I cannot shake the wonder of what was going through her head in her last moments of that beating. I cannot sleep… I am devastated. I love you Terri and miss you so badly

  39. Kelly Craig says:

    OH, and the worst thing is, there is not any extended family.

  40. adamluv3r101 says:

    R.I.P Terri u will be missed but loved by all Adam Lambert will miss u and love u as well

  41. Jane Parker says:

    Yes, prayers for strength and peace!
    🙁

    In Texas, HE will NEVER see those children again!!
    THANK GOODNESS!

    RIP Terri

  42. Like Toni mentioned there is a lot going on on AO so I think we should keep an eye on that and all pull togtehr as a big loving community.

  43. Elizabeth Richter, Glamb#545 says:

    I am so saddened by Terri’s death as I start my day today. I was going online to get my Adam fix to cheer myself up and read the bad news. While I am not being physically attacked by my ex husband, he has dragged me through the court system for 3 and 1/2 years now. Today I have to write motions and check with the Court regarding my upcoming hearing in January 2010. So I relate to the how soul destroying these men are who attack their former wives and children either physically or through legal stalking in the Courts. I also have three children whom I have been able to protect for the better part, but all this legal manouevering means we have no money to live on, there is nothing set aside for college. It is all very tragic. But at least I have the happiness of listening to Adam and enjoying his free spirit.

  44. One of the things that means the most to me in all that Adam has brought into my life, is the relationships that have developed. To feel that sense of being really connected to each of you because of our shared love for Adam has touched my life deeply. Knowing that we have each other in times like these makes it easier to carry on. I am sure Terri knew that she was loved by so many and her kids will also have that support. Think of growing up without your Mom because your Dad killed her. What more selfish act could anyone commit. Whatever his punishment, the children are the one’s that will suffer for the rest of their lives. I hope they will join our group and realize that we are here for them. Let’s try to give them some glitter in their lives as Terri would have wanted.

    I am just so horrified about this! I just cannot understand the ignorance of someone who could do something like this!!! I hope he get’s his just due. Either life in prison with out possibility of parole , Or hopefully the DEATH penalty! How could someone beat a poor woman to death with a tire iron. May God Bless this poor woman. And may he Bless and see over her children. Things like this are just getting to common these days. It is disgusting! Just think of how the poor woman must have suffered. Hang the bastard! Sorry, but things like this just blow me away! Sherry K

    I hate know there are people in this world that have so much hate in them. It broke my heart to know that them kid had to go through that. It make me so sick to just think about the kids. My god help them sweet angel through all the rough road ahead of them. And please give this kids a safe loving home. I have cried so much about this and funny thing I don’t even know this person. But Adam has make us want to love everyone and everything. That one thing that means alot to Adam . There is No Hate !! That is the way god wanted it to be. But I know Terri is looking down from heaven on her kids and us. And she know she was love by alot of people. Now people can see the power of Adam has put into each and everyone of us. A family that is very strong and will be there for each to the end. My heart go out to the family and the kids. Terri we love you. R.I.P TERRI You will be missed!!!

  48. heart breaking news…rip terri…justice will prevail…my sympathy to the family, most to her children…?

  49. i went to terri’s twitter page and it was gloomy with dark tree, but the word GOD was printed in all caps…terri in GOD’s hand…RIP?

  50. RIP dear Terri, Maybe as an angle you can keep an eye on Adam from above.. I saw the three pictures that Adam signed for Terri.. She was such a huge fan. I’m so sad for her and her children.. May her light and spirit find peace… RIP

    • Sherrylx…I love the thought of Terri as an angel, watching over ADAM. She loved him so much that she would do a wonderful job of being his guardian angel!

  51. So sorry to hear about Terri. I wish the best to the family. Thank you Terri for supporting Adam Lambert and his music.

  52. OhSweetOne says:

    No here is what should happen to him. Take him and chain him to a tall pole then strip him of his clothes. Put honey all over his, umm yeah down there. Then put red fire ants on his privates. Let the ants at him for a while. He will pay slowly I hope. Mary Glamb #534

  53. i had no idea who she was and when i found out i was so sad…. imagine how adam must feel! i feel so bad for her kids… hopefully they grow up loving adam.

  54. Such a sad story…This would be the perfect time for Adam, Rhianna, Gaga and other celebs to come forward and do a benefit concert where money would go to stop domestic abuse…The sadder thing is this happens on a daily basis…women and children are beaten every day because they are weaker and can not defend themselves…Adam if you are reading…sorry for the loss of a great fan…
    You songs are right…all we need is love ….love….

  55. Terri, or Mrs. S, was my manager, and was an absolutely AMAZING person, no mater how you look at it.
    I’m not sure if any of y’all know about this – since she was our store’s die-hard adam fan, but she left all her money to her children, so there’s basically no money for her funeral.

    IN her honor, Walgreen’s decided to put together a Benefit for her and we’ve been passing out flyers. They’re taking donations not only for her to have a proper funeral but also to start trust funds for her three children.

    I have personally met, her three amazing children, and her babysitter. I am so honored that the babysitter tried to help, but also realized that the children needed to be kept safe.

    If any of you would like to make donations – Im sure, not only Terri, but all of us at Walgreens that considered her family would appreciate it.

    The directinos say to send donations to:
    Walgreens
    Attn: THe Terri Sanvicente FUneral and CHild Benefit Fund
    2808 North Gessner
    Houston, TX 77080
    USA
    checks should be mae out to: The Terri Sanvicente Funeral and Child Benefit Fund.

    theres also a website for donations : http://www.worldasiderseeit.com/home/a-tribute-to-terri-sanvincente.html

    I’m still devastated by this… no one desesrves this, and Jason better get what he deserves, because I don’t want to see him try to get custody over his children no matter how many years from now. He shouldn’t be allowed near them.

    Sincerely,
    Chino~

  56. I DIDN’T KNOW TERRI BUT THE FACT STILL REMAINS THAT THIS IS A SAD SITUATION WHEN THEY MADE SUCH A BIG DEAL ABOUT ADAM KISSING ANOTHER BOY AND THIS HORRIFIC CRIME ONLY MERITS A SMALL AD. IT GOES TO SHOW YOU HOW MESSED UP SOCIETY IS.

    R.I.P. TERRI. MAY GOD SHINE LOVE AND LIGHT ON YOU , YOUR CHILDREN AND THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY.

    ADAM FANS WILL STICK TOGETHER IN THIS TIME OF SORROW AND BRING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH TERRI IN OUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS. WE WILL ALL BE GLAMBERTS FOREVER.

    MANY PRAYERS AND LOVE TO TERRI AND HER FAMILY.

    LIGHT AND LOVE,
    MRS. M
