ALTA VISTA, IA – An Alta Vista couple has been charged with murder after the maggot-riddled body of their severely neglected 4-month-old child was found in a baby swing at the family’s apartment in Iowa.

Zachary Paul Koehn, 28, and his girlfriend, 20-year-old Cheyanne Renae Harris, had the bracelets slapped on this past Wednesday when they were charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment.

According to court records, their son, Sterling Daniel Koehn, was found dead Aug. 30 after Zachary Koehn called 911 requesting an ambulance come to the couple’s home.

When Chickasaw County sheriff’s deputies and medics arrived, they found the deceased infant sitting in a powered baby swing, according to the criminal complaints. Sterling was found in a bedroom separate from where Koehn, Harris and their older child slept.

No report of whether the room had an Air Wick, though autopsy results suggest it must’ve been getting pretty ripe in there.

When deputies first arrived at the couple’s apartment, Koehn reportedly told them that Harris had fed Sterling that morning and, “he was fine.”

Koehn claimed that when Harris checked on their son a few hours later, he had died, according to the complaint.…

Ashley WeirLAGO VISTA, TX – When you get a call from your son saying that you need to go pick him and his sisters up from your ex-wife’s place, you know it’s going to be a rough day.

But when you find that your children have been tattooed, your ex is passed out drunk and won’t answer the door for cops, it can’t get any worse, right? Not for a Travis County man who got a call from his son on Monday, say Lago Vista police.

According to the arrest affidavit, the son told his dad that “they had a surprise for him and that he might not like it.” When the father showed up at his ex-wife’s house in Lago Vista, he found his kids-ages 13, 10 and 9-with “fresh tattoos on their ankles.

The children’s mother, 31-year-old Ashley Weir, was arrested, charged with allowing her boyfriend’s brother to ink the kids. Which is where it does get worse. The boyfriend’s brother? You guessed it: a registered sex offender.…

Eric WarfelMEDINA, OH – Police in Ohio say a cable TV installer working at a Medina apartment complex found the badly decomposed body of a young girl in a crib, resulting in her father’s arrest.

A cable installer arrived at the apartment of 34-year-old Eric Warfel’s at around 10 a.m. Wednesday and went inside. In one of the rooms he would find the badly decomposed body of a 24-month-old girl in a crib. The cable installer immediately called police.

“The gentleman that was here (Warfel) would never hook up with them. Finally he gave permission to come in today and he was gone last night, so actually the poor cable repairman was the one that discovered the child,” said Medina Police Chief Patrick Berarducci.

Warfel was arrested shortly after at Crocker Park in Westlake while he was with his 7-year-old daughter. Warfel remained jailed Thursday facing a felony charge of corpse abuse. A judge has set Warfel’s bond at $1 million and a police spokesperson said additional charges are expected. His daughter was placed with grandparents while investigators tried to find the mother of the deceased child.…

Juan Carlos SanchezWheelersburg, OH – A mother, stepfather and grandmother are in custody, accused of holding four young children prisoner in their southern Ohio home, binding them with ropes and chains, and torturing them both physically and sexually.

The Scioto County Sheriff’s department first learned about the abuse allegations on Jan. 30th, when a teacher at an online learning school said one of the girls emailed her and asked her to call 911. The victims all lived in the home together and were being home schooled via computer, authorities said.

That same computer enabled an 11-year-old girl to reach out for help via email, claiming she and her siblings were being held prisoner in their home and were being tortured. A Sheriff’s deputy, accompanied by county children’s services, went to the home and interviewed the siblings, and evidence of the alleged abuse was apparent.

“The children stated that they had been tied with ropes and chains to their beds for weeks at a time, sometimes longer (and were) only untied to do school work on the computer,” the sheriff’s department said.…

thugbabyOMAHA, NE – A Nebraska infant who gained fame in a viral video in which he swore, flipped the bird to the camera and repeated a string of vulgarities has been taken into protective custody, Omaha police announced on Wednesday. Three other children were also removed from the home, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

The child, wearing a diaper,  is told to repeat a number of obscenities and racial slurs by the adults taking the video. The infant, who is black, is shown knocking over a chair and at times taunts the adults back, calling one of them a bitch and telling her to shut up. The adults are heard laughing and encouraging him to keep going.

Though the conduct is disgusting, that didn’t stop the baby’s mother, 16-year-old Ennisha  Devers, from speaking out in defense of her child-rearing skills and taking up for her two-year-old son, after claiming that her brother shot the video-while she was in another room.

“He had a clean diaper, the house was clean and like they said, kids curse, every kid does it,” Devers said. …

Kyle HandleyNEWPORT BEACH, CA –  Four rather inventive, albeit clueless, people in California were arrested and accused of kidnapping a man and going medieval on his ass. The kidnappers allegedly used a blowtorch on the victim before chopping off his penis in an attempt to make the man reveal the location of money they erroneously believed he’d buried in the desert.

According to prosecutors, the unidentified victim is a prosperous medical marijuana dispensary owner who took some of his pot suppliers, including Kyle Handley (pictured), on a pricey Las Vegas trip last year. After returning from the trip, Handley allegedly told friends that the victim was loaded, setting into motion a scheme to kidnap and rob the man.

Four weeks prior to the kidnapping, the dick-snippers started following the dispensary owner during his frequent trips into the desert outside of Palm Springs. The four had it in their heads that their target was driving there “to bury large amounts of cash,” according to the statement. In actuality, he was making the trips to the desert to discuss a possible investment deal.…

Jose Cristobal VelandriaSUNNYVALE, CA – Police arrested a 68-year-old man on suspicion of sexually assaulting multiple children at an in-home childcare where he lived.

Jose Cristobal Velandria has been charged with five felony counts of lewd and lascivious acts by force, with the known victims being between the ages of 5 and 8 years old,  said a Superior Court clerk at the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.

“The children are between 5- and 8-years old; elementary-aged children,” confirmed Deputy District Attorney Murat Ozgur. “The touching that was made was a sexual type of touching.” Ozgur went on to say, “We are concerned because this individual may have had access to other children that were there, and there may be other children who were inappropriately touched by this individual.”

Sunnyvale police first got a report concerning the alleged molestation from the parents of one of the victims, a girl, on September 30th, and began an investigation. They obtained an arrest warrant for Velandria, said police Captain Dave Pitts. Police learned that Velandria was living at the day care center, and that he is a relative of the facility’s owner and operator, Pitts said.…

bullet holeHAYWARD, CA –  A 10-year-old girl’s parents didn’t report that their daughter had been shot in the ass until hours later — believing the girl’s bleeding was actually her period.

According to police Sgt. Mark Ormsby, the girl was sleeping in her home around 2 a.m. Friday morning when a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting wounded her in the buttocks. When the girl woke up bleeding and in pain, her parents found no indication she’d been shot. and  believed her symptoms were consistent with starting menstruation.

When she woke up in the morning for school, she was still in pain. Her parents checked her bed and found several bullet holes. When they inspected the girl’s body more closely, they located the bullet entry wound and called 911 more than five hours after she’d been shot.

The girl’s doctor told investigators that the entry wound was small and could have been easily overlooked if the family thought she was getting a visit from Aunt Flow. Personally, if my kid was bleeding, I’d have checked them out thoroughly before introducing the Playtex.…

Judge Dean MattoonWATERLOO, NY – A judge in upstate New York was assaulted Friday night, beaten and choked with the lid from a discarded toilet, authorities say.

Judge Dean Mattoon told WSTM that Judge Roger Barto was assaulted as he locked up the court right around 10:00 pm. Waterloo police say Barto was attacked from behind by an assailant who used a toilet tank lid from a nearby garbage container. The toilet had recently been removed during building renovations. Bet inmates in Seneca County are having a field day with that particular tid bit.

Police officers found the judge lying near the front door of the entrance to the courtroom. Barto was transported to Rochester and treated at Strong Memorial Hospital, where he remained on Wednesday, five days after the attack. According to police, he’s listed in guarded condition. It wasn’t immediately known if there were any witnesses to the crime, but if you see a guy running around carrying half a shitter, Waterloo Police would like to hear from you.

Authorities say that Barto had been presiding over an arraignment concerning serious traffic violations, but they aren’t saying that the arraignment is linked to the beating.…

kid driverPHOENIX, AZ –  A panic-stricken mom who thought her children had been kidnapped got an even worse surprise when she discovered her 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter had taken her car on a joyride – before getting into an accident in which the little girl was killed.

Half an hour after giving her son and daughter a bath and putting them to bed, the woman noticed that they were missing, along with  her 2010 Hyundai Elantra. Her front door was open, as well. She began knocking on her neighbors’ doors and called police.

As it turned out, police received at least two 911 calls just a few minutes earlier from witnesses who reported seeing the car driving in the area. One caller told police that the car had struck a fence, then driven off. Another said it looked like the car was being driven by a child. Responding officers spotted the vehicle “almost instantly” after police turned on their emergency lights, Sgt. Steve Martos said.

The police cars did not have their sirens on, he said. …

Michael Paul PerryASHLAND, WV – Sheriff’s deputies say they arrested a pair of McDowell County parents after they found the couples’ young children living in filth, being held in a room where they were handling and eating human excrement. Yum.

According to WVVA, Michael Paul Perry, 28, and Crystal Sidney Perry, 19, were arrested and charged with child abuse creating substantial risk of injury. Not to mention bad breath.

Martin West, the McDowell County Sheriff, told WVVA TV that detectives responded to a call from Child Protective Services employees who were trying to remove the kids from the home in the Ashland area on Thursday afternoon. Not surprisingly, the parents weren’t eager to cooperate and the employees told police they felt threatened.

Officers say that when they entered the residence, they found two toddlers, ages 1 and 2, being kept in a room where they were eating human waste. A criminal complaint filed in McDowell County Magistrate Court said the children were ‘filthy’, and worse.

“The room in which the children were being held had human excrement on the floor and that the children had been eating the excrement,” the complaint said.…

Andrew GoodmanBROOKLYN, NY – A convicted kiddie diddler who’s facing new charges of sexually molesting a teen boy asked a court to dismiss the case. The reason? He claims that under Jewish law he was married to the victim. Oy vey!

In 2012, Andrew Goodman, 28, was convicted of sexually abusing the victim over a period of several years beginning when the boy was 12. For systematic sexual abuse of a child, he got – ready for this? – a whopping two years behind bars.

The teen called the judge’s decision to hand down little more than a slap on the wrist to Goodman (over prosecutors’ objections) “a very grave mistake.” Hope this kid’s got law school in his future.

In October of last year, however, additional charges were filed by the feds because evidence surfaced that Goodman had taken the boy across state lines to abuse him. At the time, the kid was only 15. Goodman took him to Atlantic City, according to an article in the New York Daily News.…

Harry BainsLINDEN, NJ – The owner of a New Jersey delicatessen thwarted a would-be robber by dousing the man in hot oil.

According to a police report, the armed robber entered Cos’s Corner Deli on East Elizabeth Ave around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon. He was wearing a hooded windbreaker pulled up to cover his face, and brandishing a gun.

The suspect, described as a dark-skinned man in his 20s, signaled for the store owner, 46-year-old Harry Bains, to be quiet. Bains stayed quiet all right, slipping into the back while the thief began trying to pull the register from it’s cubby-hole.

“The pan was there. I put on the fryer, and put the hot oil on and threw it at him,” Bains said. “And that’s when he got a little surprised, and he ran out right away.”

Bains estimated that the oil was about 400 degrees.

“To tell you, frankly, I don’t know what was going inside my mind at that time,” he said. “I just did it.”

Officers canvassed the area, but were unable to locate the suspect.…

David HasselhoffSHELTON, CT – A convenience store clerk was critically injured on the job while trying to stop the theft of two David Hasselhoff signs. No, I’m not kidding.

The 36-year-old clerk, who works at a Cumberland Farms store, has not been identified. Police say at around 1:15 a.m., he saw a black SUV pull up and its occupants get out and begin to cut down the Hasselhoff signs from a light pole.

When he approached the vehicle to get the signs back, he somehow got hooked to the thief’s SUV as it drove away. Cue the Knight Rider theme.

Shelton Police Lt. Bob Kozlowsky told reporters that, “He ended up flipping backwards, falling on his head.” The clerk was reportedly in critical condition at Bridgeport Hospital, sources said.

Shelton Police are reviewing surveillance footage from a security camera at the River Road store to try and identify the suspects.

The clerk was trying to get back two display signs from the people in the SUV, according to police. The signs advertise Farmhouse Blend iced coffee, making the theft even more questionable.…

sexy goatWILTSHIRE, UK – A 23-year-old British man has been banned from every farm in England after getting it on with a goat, says a report in the London Evening Standard.

On Monday, Robert Newman, the goat-fucker in question, pled guilty to the bestiality in North West Wiltshire Magistrates Court in Chippenham. The incident allegedly occurred in April on a farm in Wiltshire.

Newman had initially denied having sex with the animal, but confessed shortly before his trial was set to begin. Wonder what made him change his mind. I mean, it wasn’t like the victim was going to testify.

Newman, of Devizes, is currently out on bail, but conditions of his bond prohibit him from being on any property where farm animals are kept, reported SWNS. Newman also has a curfew, which should keep him from livestock-diddling between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. His sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 12.

Stories regarding people having sex with animals are quite frequent on this site, but this is the first time a goat has made an appearance.…

Regina BennettPHILADELPHIA, PA – A Pennsylvania woman is facing a slew of charges after a handicapped woman was found by police, tied to a urine-soaked bed in the basement of her Philadelphia home, suffering from sores, multiple wounds, and living in “unsuitable conditions,” according to an arrest report.

As if living in Philadelphia wasn’t bad enough.

Regina Bennett, 46, was arrested and charged with kidnapping, assault, unlawful restraint, terroristic threats, public drunkenness and other offences on Sunday after getting into a scrap with a neighbor.

Officers were called to a home on Linton Street to break up a fight between Bennett and a neighbor, identified as Liza Figueroa. While they were there, they were informed that a child may have been in the house. Though police found no signs of children living in the home, they did find the 36-year-old victim, bound to a bed. She was described as “extremely thin,” in the police report, and “appeared to be special needs and has a limited vocabulary.”

Figueroa told NBC-affiliate WCAU, “I would of never imagined that the police officers yesterday, resulting from the altercation that I had with her, [would discover] that she had someone tied up in her basement.”

The unidentified victim was taken to Einstein Hospital for evaluation.…

Brian WilsonFORT MYERS, FL – A Fort Myers man short on Father-of-the-Year street cred was taken into custody after a neighbor saw him speeding around town on an ATV-with a toddler in his lap.

The wanna-be daredevil, 24-year-old Brian Wilson, was videotaped while driving the ATV by a neighbor. A deputy called to the scene also witnessed Wilson recklessly tooling around. After the deputy made contact with him, Wilson led police on a fairly high-speed chase for a man fleeing on an ATV.

Officials from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office say Wilson was going as fast as 40 mph on Staley Road in Fort Myers when he was spotted. Wilson’s daughter, who authorities believe is around three years old, was sitting in front of Wilson, without any head gear. Florida law states it is illegal to operate an ATV on a paved road and for a child under 16 to ride an ATV without a helmet.

The concerned neighbor, James Williams, took the video and posted it to YouTube because he feared for the child’s safety.…

Jared RemyWALTHAM, MA – Looks like the only strike zone Jared Remy could find was the one on women he abused, as the son of iconic Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy was arrested Thursday, accused of stabbing his 27-year-old girlfriend to death.

Jared Remy reportedly murdered Jennifer Martel Thursday night in the couples’ apartment. He’s scheduled to be arraigned sometime today on murder and domestic assault charges with a weapon after appearing in court earlier this week for allegedly assaulting Martel.

Remy was released on personal recognizance Wednesday, a day before he killed Martel. According to a statement by Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan, the bail recommendation made by her office was based, in part, on a conversation with the victim. “The bail recommendation was based on a totality of circumstances,” Ryan said.

Police received multiple 911 calls from the Windsor Village apartment complex in Waltham around 9 p.m. Thursday night. Witnesses described seeing Remy “on top of Miss Martel stabbing her repeatedly with the knife.’’ They tried to intervene but stopped when Remy slashed at them.…
