FULTON COUNTY, GA – Janna Thompson has been indicted on second-degree murder and child cruelty charges after a 3-year-old boy in her daycare accidentally hanged himself while playing on a slide.
On July 9, Thomas Stephens was being watched at Janna’s Daycare, a daycare Thompson ran out of her home. According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, Thompson took Stephens and two other toddlers outside to play, leaving two infants and another toddler inside her home.
At some point Janna went back inside to discipline another child.
“While the children were playing, one toddler began misbehaving,” court documents stated. “The Provider took this child inside leaving three children unsupervised on the playground. While inside, the Provider used the restroom, received a phone call and made a phone call.”
After an “undetermined amount of time,” Thompson went back outside and found Stephens laying flat on a slide with a piece of twine wrapped around his neck. The boy wasn’t breathing, so Thompson called 911 and attempted CPR. Unfortunately, Stephens would die in his mother’s arms at the hospital the following day.…Continue Reading
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Vicente Ridon and his wife, Dorma, have been sentenced to life behind bars after being found guilty of crimes related to the production of animal cruelty videos.
Two years ago, someone stumbled across videos of young girls torturing animals. For those of you who are unaware of these types of videos, let me ruin your morning a bit.
The videos this person found are called crush videos, and are created for people who get aroused by watching women crush things with their feet.
The videos often include women simply stepping on food or insects, but can also include women stepping on live animals like kittens, puppies, mice, reptiles, etc.
The videos the Ridons manufactured included crush-type scenes, but they also ramped up the animal abuse to horrific levels while forcing a 12-year-old girl to participate.
Their videos featured:
- a dog getting skinned alive
- rabbits flailing and screaming as their ears were cut off and as they were set on fire
- a dog getting burned with a flat iron
- a monkey and several dogs getting hit in the eyes with the sharp end of a stiletto heel
- puppies getting crushed until they vomited their own internal organs
If you want to get a taste of just how heinous these videos are, then watch the following news report.…Continue Reading
DALLAS, TX – Dallas police say Angel Sanches-Zenteno, 17, raped his 5-year-old cousin in an abandoned apartment before he strangled her to death then hanged her inside a closet.
Katherina Gonzalez was staying with her uncle at the Lake Highlands apartments earlier this month while her parents were at work. Police were called after the girl was reported missing, and would find her body hanging by a shirt in the closet of a vacant apartment.
Sanches-Zenteno would tell police that a man named “Carlos” forced him and Gonzales into the abandoned apartment. He said that Carlos stuffed him inside a closet for more than a half hour while his cousin was killed.
He would tell another investigator that he sexually assaulted the girl for “less than a minute” because Carlos forced him to do so at gunpoint. DNA samples collected from Gonzales would later be tested and matched DNA taken from Sanches-Zenteno.
Police have yet to find Carlos, because he doesn’t exist. A witness told police he watched Sanches-Zenteno lure Gonzalez into the abandoned apartment, telling the girl “Come on, come on.”
Sanches-Zenteno is being held in Dallas County jail on charges of capital murder and aggravated sexual assault.…Continue Reading

WEST MILFORD, NJ — In more “horrifying ways I never want to die” news, 22-year-old Daten Patel was possibly killed by a black bear while hiking with friends in New Jersey’s Apshawa Preserve.
Patel was with a group of five men hiking through the 576-acre wooded area when they were confronted by a 300-pound black bear. When the bear began stalking them, the group scattered in different directions.
Four of the men were able to regroup, but were unable to find Patel. Two hours after calling police, the West Milford Search and Rescue team found Patel’s body being guarded by the bear.
“Evidence at the scene indicated that the victim had been attacked by a bear,” West Milford Police Chief Timothy C. Storbeck said.
Multiple attempts were made to scare the bear away, but the bear had to be euthanized. The bear’s body was taken to a state lab where it will be examined for clues as to why it pursued the group.
Kelcey Burguess, principal biologist and leader of the state Division of Fish and Wildlife’s black bear project, said the bear could have been predisposed to attack but was probably just looking for food.…Continue Reading
ELPASO, TX – Police have arrested US army specialist Dartarious Graham after they say the 20-year-old beat his 2-year-old daughter to death for soiling her diaper.
Graham was at his apartment Saturday with his cousin, 19-year-old Robert Franklin, and his daughter, Peyton Graham when Graham became angry that his daughter had soiled her diaper.
So Graham did what a lot of parents do in that situation; he took the little girl in a bedroom so he could beat the shit out of her with a belt. Franklin observed this beating but instead of stopping it, he walked away while the beating was taking place.
Once he was done, Graham came out of the room with his daughter who proceeded to go limp and unresponsive. Graham called 911 and the girl was transported to the hospital where she would later die. Police were notified when injuries found on the child appeared to be suspicious, and some of them were indicative of past abuse.
After questioning Graham and Franklin, they were arrested and charged with murder.…Continue Reading
Two hours after classes ended on Friday, Nash approached his teacher and put his arm around her. When she rebuked his advances, Nash body-slammed her to the ground, choked her until she was unconscious, then raped her.
By the time the teacher regained consciousness and called police, Nash had already left the scene. He’d also put a used condom in her purse, threw her cell phone in the trash and took her car keys.
Police would locate him five hours later driving the teacher’s car. Once in custody, Nash admitted he sexually assaulted the teacher. Nash has been charged with attempted first degree murder, sexual battery, robbery and grand theft.
Nash’s father, Victor Marshall Nash Sr., said that he was ‘shocked’ to hear his son had been accused of raping his teacher, adding that he and his mother “tried to raise him as both loving parents.” Nash Sr.…Continue Reading
CHANDLER, AZ — A man trimming trees at a car dealership was decapitated when he somehow fell headfirst into an industrial wood chipper.
According to the Chandler Police Department, the unidentified man worked for Phoenix Trim-A-Tree LLCA and was part of a small crew trimming trees at Freeway Chevrolet at about 10:15 a.m. Thursday.
He was reportedly standing on the wood chipper when he suddenly slipped and fell in. To make matters worse, two of the workers with him when it happened were his two sons.
The man’s family arrived on the scene and described the victim to reporters as a happy, family man who took pride in his work and had been employed by the landscaping company for years.
The state Occupational Safety and Health Administration will probably conduct their own investigation, said Chandler police spokesperson Sgt. Seth Tyler.
If there’s a silver lining to this man’s horrific death, it’s the fact that he went in with his head. I’m sure it was pretty quick. Aside from being eaten alive by an animal, I cannot think of a more terrifying way to die than to get pulled feet first through a goddamn wood chipper.…Continue Reading
GEORGETOWN, TX – Police say 18-year-old Papa Murphy’s employee, Austin Symonds, admitted he rubbed his balls on a customer’s pizza because he’d ordered it right before closing time.
On Sept 2, a man called a Papa Murphy’s just before closing time to order a family size stuffed pizza with Canadian bacon, pineapple and extra cheese. Symonds was not happy with the timing of the order, so he decided to add some of his scrotum to the pizza’s toppings free of charge.
Unfortunately for Symonds, his timing could not have been worse. The customer walked in and witnessed Symonds adding his nuts to the pizza, potentially saving him and his family unknowingly chowing down on some tainted pubes.
Symonds apologized after he was confronted by the customer, who asked Symonds his age. When Symonds responded that he was 18, the customer stated, “So you are old enough to know better than to put your balls on someone’s pizza.”
The customer said he watched as Symonds talked to the store’s manager over the phone and that Symonds apologized again.…Continue Reading
ALASKA — Immediately after KTVA reporter Charlo Greene reported on a medical marijuana business during a live 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, she revealed she was the owner of the business and declared, “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
It’s worth watching, not just for her quitting, but also for her shocked co-anchor’s hilarious attempt at a recovery.
Greene was reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club, reportedly Alaska’s only legal medical marijuana resource that helps connect medical marijuana cardholders with local growers.
Greene is also the president and CEO of the organization. She says she quit her job as a reporter so she could redirect all of her energy toward helping end “a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.” Amen.
She chose to quit in the way that she did in order to draw attention to the issue of medical marijuana and Ballot Measure 2, the initiative to regulate marijuana in Alaska like alcohol. She says KTVA had no idea she was connected to the Alaska Cannabis Club or that she was going to quit on the air.…Continue Reading
MILWAUKEE, WI — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee fraternity investigated over sexual assault claims last year, has been suspended after accusations of using a potential date rape drug at a party full of underage kids.
Last Friday, Tau Kappa Epsilon held a party at their off-campus frat house. For $8 you could also receive an access card that would allow you to get free drinks. The catch, according to one girl at the party who ended up at the hospital, “you have to be hot” to get one.
A few hours into the party, campus police responded to reports of people at the party being so drunk that they were unable to walk and were vomiting. Police would find 42 kids under the age of 21 in the basement with either red or black X’s marked on their hands. The fraternity would not explain to police what the X’s meant.
Three women and a male at the party would end up taking a trip to the hospital where, according to a search warrant, one of the girls told police that after consuming some of a drink given to her by a frat member “she had a weird feeling and sensation prior to blacking out which she had never felt before.”
Another girl said she blacked out 30 minutes after someone poured her a drink then moved “the cup under the bar out of sight; after a few moments the male pulled the cup back on top of the bar and gave her the mixed drink.”
The male said he got sick shortly after taking sips from a drink given to one of the girls.…Continue Reading
That’s bad enough. But the kicker is that the girl had been sent to the bathroom as bait in a sting orchestrated by a teacher trying to catch the boy in the act.
First, here’s a bit of background. Teachers at Sparkman Middle School were having a lot of problems dealing with a 16-year-old boy at the school. The kid wasn’t demonstrating your standard juvenile hijinks; he was violent and sexually aggressive towards female students.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the issues school administration has had with the teen, starting after a 2008 suspension for hitting a student:
Feb 2009 – Suspended for “sexual harassment.”
Apr 2009 – Received in-school suspension for disrespecting a teacher.
Sep 2009 – Suspended for trying to pay another student to beat up a girl
Oct 2009 – Banned from school bus for 10 days and given three days in-school suspension for telling off school bus driver.…
BELL, FL – Police say Don Spirit wiped out 2% of a small town’s population after the 51-year-old fatally shot his daughter and six grandchildren before killing himself.
On Thursday, Spirit is said to have gunned down his daughter and her six children before killing himself at a home in Bell, Florida, a town of only 350 people. The Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office said the seven victims were found “all over on the property,” and included a 10-week-old baby.
The victims have been identified as Sarah Lorraine Spirit, 28, and her daughters Alanna Stewart, 2½ months, Brandon Stewart, 4, Destiny Stewart, 5, and Kylie Kuhlmann, 9, and sons Johnathon Kuhlmann, 8, and Kaleb Kuhlmann, 11.
This wasn’t the first time Spirit has shot and killed a family member. In 2001, Spirit “accidentally” shot and killed his eight-year-old son, Kyle, while hunting together. Before that incident, Spirit had convictions for depriving a child of food and shelter, battery, and felony possession of marijuana.
Just as the trial was to begin for the shooting death of his son, Spirit pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and received the minimum sentence of three years behind bars.…Continue Reading
GWINNETT COUNTY, GA – Police have charged 23-year-old Diamond Mason with the stabbing death of his stepfather during an argument over a puppy.
According to reports, Mason lived with his stepfather and brought a puppy into the home about a week ago.
His stepfather, 51-year-old Joseph Kollie, was not happy with the arrangement and asked Mason several times to get rid of the dog.
Kollie’s requests often ended with the two getting into heated arguments and the dog remaining inside the home.
But around 1.a.m. Wednesday, an argument about the dog turned fatal when Mason grabbed a couple of large knives, reportedly a large dagger and a machete, to stab Kollie to death in his bedroom.
Mason was arrested and taken to the Gwinnett County Jail. He’s being held without bond on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault.
Watch the following video and tell if you get a strange vibe off one of the people that lived in the home. He’s the one telling the reporter he saw Mason holding a machete.…Continue Reading

While loading his truck, Ruffin noticed Wilson had taken a black bag out of a garbage can and was trying to put it in a metal bucket.
Ruffin’s watched in horror as the bag ripped open and a man’s head spilled out along with two human hands.
“I’m like, man, what the hell you got going on, bro? He said something like he didn’t mean to kill him. I said, kill who brother? I don’t want to know who that is, I don’t want to know. You don’t got to tell me,” Ruffin said to Wilson.
Ruffin wasn’t taking part in any of of it. He was already on parole and wanted to make sure he wasn’t attached to whatever happened to the man with the missing head and hands.–so he went straight to the police to report what he’d seen.…Continue Reading
ATLANTA, GA – The Fulton County district attorney’s office has announced they will be charging a 16-year-old girl as an adult after she allegedly killed a man while trying to steal his Playstation.
On Friday, 28-year-old Daniel Zeitz went to meet a couple posing as potential buyers of the Playstation 4 he’d listed on Craigslist. Once at the meeting place, an apartment complex parking lot, Zeitz met 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian (pictured) and his 16-year-old girlfriend. The couple were in their car and had no intentions of paying for the gaming console.
When Vivian tried pulling the Playstation into the car, Zeitz fought back. Police say that’s when the 16-year-old, who was sitting in the passenger seat, pulled out a .25 caliber handgun and fired a shot at Zietz. The bullet ended up passing through Vivian’s hand before striking Zeitz in the chest, killing him.
Police say the teen’s 16-month-old baby was in the backseat at the time. The couple were arrested later after they went to the hospital to have Vivian’s gunshot wound treated.…Continue Reading

According to reports, police responding to a 911 call arrived at a home at around 3 a.m. Monday and heard a female inside screaming, “Please, 911, please.” They also heard a male voice inside the home respond, “Shhh, what do you want, us both to go to jail?”

“The victim described the feeling of not being able to breath,” reads the police report. …Continue Reading
