Police were called to a residence in Amarillo early yesterday morning by a woman reporting her ex-boyfriend had entered her home and assaulted her. Police are not naming the woman at this time, but say she had been involved with the man for about a year and a half. The two had apparently separated at least 6 months prior to the alleged attack.
Police reports indicate that around 3 a.m., Christopher Mooney, 37, entered the woman’s residence and grabbed her by the throat and attempted to drag her out of the apartment.
The woman’s uncle, 52 year old William Martin, who lives in an apartment adjacent to the woman, heard her screams and came running. Luckily, the woman’s current boyfriend, who lives with her, also came to the rescue. When Mooney refused to free the woman, he grabbed the first weapon he could find and struck Mooney with it to get him to release the woman.…Continue Reading
The highway patrol investigator in charge of the case says many details are not available to give the public right now as the investigation is ongoing.
What they have stated is that before Richard Resnicoff fell of the car, he and his wife, 65 year old Lucille Horton, had some sort of domestic dispute. So far, it is unknown whether he hopped on the vehicle before she was in motion or if she was already roaring off.
The couple’s next-door neighbor, Bill Wescoski, reports he saw the car driving down the street and originally thought it was kids joyriding. At some point it struck him that it was, in fact, his neighbor Richard hanging onto the back.
“And I said, ‘Hey, that’s our neighbor.’ And as he goes down, and then the car sped up, you saw his feet up in the air,” described Wescoski.…Continue Reading
NOBLESVILLE, Ind. – New to the ever growing list of seriously depraved human beings is 30 year old Micah Harrison. He is currently sitting in jail on a murder charge for allegedly stabbing his 2-year-old son multiple times.
Micah was living in Alabama and had reportedly taken his three children, a 4 and 5-year-old girl and 2-year-old Michael, to Indiana for the day to visit relatives.
No specific motive has been listed in the killing but neighbors reported to police that the little boy had been outside playing with some other children and had fallen in the snow.

Wichita, KS – A 45-year-old woman and her brother got more than they bargained for when they were shot at by a fellow customer at a McDonald’s drive-through.
Deborah Bennington and her brother were in the drive-through line waiting to pick up her hot chocolate and a breakfast sandwich before going to work when a black Chevy Blazer with tinted windows wedged in between her and the vehicle in front of her. The man and woman inside the Blazer had received the wrong order and decided not to get into the back of the line.
Not wanting the Blazer to delay her rumble-guts, Bennington lurched forward in an attempt to keep the Blazer from getting in front of her, accidentally tapping it in the process. The Blazer’s female driver got out of her vehicle and she and Bennington engaged in a bit of name calling.
The woman got back into the Blazer and exchanged a bag of food at the drive-through window while Bennington memorized the Blazer’s license plate number. But once the Blazer’s occupants had received their correct order, they did not pull away.…Continue Reading
