Jeffrey Harris, a Tampa Police Detective, was warning business owner Teresa Budd about car burglaries in the area when they noticed a neighbor’s 50-pound Boxer carrying something in its mouth.
As they approached the dog, they realized that the “something” was actually Michael Diaz, a 2-year-old boy. Harris yelled at the dog and got it to drop the boy before it ran off.
Budd knew the Diaz family and ran to their home to alert the boy’s mother, who became visibly distraught. Diaz was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital with serious injuries.
Budd said the dog belonged to the Diaz family and that she’d seen it earlier that day hanging around her loading dock. Another neighbor said the dog wanders the neighborhood, and that the the boy’s older brother once knocked on her door asking to come inside because he said the dog was trying to kill him.…
Sometime after Giancherio purchased some alcohol from a liquor store and returning home, a neighbor called police to report she just watched Giancherio drive off with her young daughter standing on the driver’s side running board.
The neighbor said the girl was yelling and banging on the window as her mother simply gazed at her daughter and continued driving. The girl eventually fell off the truck and landed in the road. Giancherio simply drove away.
“I went over to check on her and her knees are all cut up, she’s on the curb just crying, and the mom is already gone, just drove off, she didn’t stop or look down,” said the neighbor.
The girl begged the neighbor not to call police on her mother, but they did anyway. When officers arrived, Giancherio had already returned home and parked her truck in the garage.…
BIRMINGHAM, AL – Police have arrested 80-year-old Matthew Moore after he allegedly gunned down his daughter for not buying him alcohol.
The incident happened Friday night when Moore and his 47-year-old daughter, Chrystol Moore, got into an argument over alcohol – Matthew wanted some, and Chrystol refused to go get it.
This pissed the elderly man off so much that he pulled out a gun and shot his daughter multiple times. When police arrived at the home, they found Chrystol Moore dead and Matthew Moore sitting at the kitchen table nearby.
Chrystol’s 13-year-old daughter was in the home at the time of the shooting, but was not harmed. Physically, at least. Mathew Moore was arrested in the death of his daughter and placed in the Jefferson County Jail on a $40,000 bond.
Moore sure is one ornery old fella, but he ain’t got nothin’ on John Wesley Hardin — a man so mean he once shot a man just for snoring.…
ROCKFORD, IL – Roy Williams, Jr. has found himself facing some serious charges after the 56-year-old tried running down a group of children he believed were bullying his daughter.
Williams initially confronted the group of kids with a cane after his 13-year-old daughter got in a fight at a bus stop outside Nelson Elementary School.
Williams called police to report the fight, but before they could arrive, Williams decided to take matters into his own hands and drove his SUV towards the kids, jumping the curb in the process.
As you can see in the cellphone video that was taken by a bystander, Williams didn’t hit any of the kids but not because of a lack of trying. Williams stayed at the scene until police arrived and was arrested after they viewed the cellphone footage.
“He should have not taken matters into his own hand and we would have investigated that initial incident and tried to resolve it without there being any further violence,” says Assistant Deputy Chief Doug Pann.
Williams is now facing aggravated assault with a vehicle and assault with a deadly weapon charges.…
CLEVELAND, OH – James Blair got so angry over his neighbor cutting her grass at night that police say the 50-year-old shot her in the face and ran over her body with a push mower.
Last week, 62-year-old Linda Ciotto was cutting her small lawn at around 9 p.m. This upset Blair so badly that he walked to her house next door and shot her in the face at point-blank.
When police arrived at Ciotto’s home two hours later after receiving a call, they found her body in her yard. Aside from the gunshot wound to her face, police say it also looked as if someone had run over her body with a push mower.
Blair was arrested early the next day after a six-hour standoff with sheriff’s deputies and a SWAT that only ended after they fired tear gas canisters into the home he lives in with his 73-year-old mother.
Blair was taken into custody and charged with murder. He is being held in the Huron County Jail on a $1 million bond.…
POLK COUNTY, FL – Police have charged Cheyanne Jessie, 25, with the murder of her father and her 6-year-old daughter before hiding their bodies.
Mark Weekly, 50, and his granddaughter, Meredith Jessie, were reported missing by Cheyanne Jessie on Saturday. They were last seen on July 18 at Weekly’s home, where Weekly often cared for Meredith.
When police checked Weekly’s home, they found blood splatter all over the house and detected a foul odor that Cheyanne said was a raccoon that had died under the house. After interviewing Cheyanne and other friends and family members, they learned that Cheyanne had told at least seven different stories regarding her daughter’s whereabouts.
When confronted with these allegations, Cheyanne admitted that she and her father got into an argument at his home regarding her new boyfriend. She claims Weekly brandished a knife and began swinging it around, accidentally stabbing and his granddaughter. Cheyanne said she was able to get the upper-hand and kill her father in self-defense.
Even if any of that were true, which evidence points to it all being a crock of shit, it doesn’t explain what Cheyanne admitted to doing next.…
GAITHERSBURG, MD – Police have charged 33-year-old Narges Shafeirad with the murder of her son after they say she forced the boy to overdose on allergy medicine before staging a fiery car crash.
On June 16, 5-year-old Daniel Dana was found trapped inside a burning car off Route 370. Shafeirad was face-down on the ground outside the driver’s door, screaming in pain.
Emergency crews tried to save Daniel, but he later died. Shafeirad was transported to the hospital to treat second and third degree burns to 40 percent of her body.
Shafeirad would tell Montgomery County police that the crash was an accident caused by her car catching fire, but investigators would quickly become suspicious.
For starters, fire marshals and a reconstruction team found that the fire started in the front-seat area and the car reeked of gasoline in and around the vehicle. They would later rule out a mechanical malfunction, including the fuel lines and fuel tank. But Shafeirad’s version of events really fell apart after Daniel’s toxicology results revealed the boy had died from Diphenhydramine intoxication.…
DEFOREST, WI – Theodore Peterson, 47, killed his disabled, teenage son before shooting himself in the head with a nail gun at Token Creek County Park.
On July 21, Peterson sent his wife a text saying he was at the park taking their 16-year-old son Maxwell for a walk. Maxwell suffered from Angelman syndrome, a rare neuro-genetic disorder that requires lifelong care.
While there, Peterson killed Maxwell by slitting his throat with a knife, then used a nail gun to shoot himself in the head. Peterson didn’t do as good of a job on himself as he did with his son, as he was still alive when a woman riding a horse found the pair lying on a trail.
Peterson was flown by helicopter to University of Wisconsin hospital where he was charged with the murder of his son before dying of his injuries a day or so later. No official word on a motive behind Peterson’s actions, but his wife told police that a respite care provider for Maxwell was no longer allowing a female worker into the Peterson home because of something posted on Facebook.…
PRYOR, MT – Jesus Mendoza, 18, has been accused of shooting and killing a couple after they stopped to help him after he became stranded on the side of the road.
Tana Shane, 50, was driving on Pryor Gap Road when she saw Mendoza was stranded on the side of the road. Tana continued home and picked up her husband, 52-year-old Jason Shane, and her daughter, 24-year-old Jorah Shane, with intentions of returning to help Mendoza.
The three first stopped at a nearby corner store to buy gasoline, but found the store was closed. They then went back to where Mendoza was stranded and found out the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished.
Instead of accepting their help, Mendoza opened fire on the family, killing Tana and Jason. He also shot Jorah, but the bullet grazed her head and she was able to run to a nearby school for help. She returned to the scene with family members before being transported to the hospital.
Law enforcement from the FBI, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Big Horn County Sheriff’s Department and the Montana Highway Patrol responded to the scene and immediately began searching for Mendoza who’d fled the scene in Tana’s car.…

On July 1, a woman called police to report that Schlinke and an underage girl were engaged in a sexual relationship. The woman said the sexual activity was happening in Schlinke’s home as well as her own.
When police interviewed the teen, she informed them that she’d had at least 70 encounters with Schinke over the last eight months. Police arrested Schlinke on Tuesday, one day after she resigned from her position with Valley Brook Police. Schlinke had been a police officer for only four months and was still attending the police academy, Valley Brook Police Chief Michael Stamp said.

The incident happened Sunday night when witnesses heard Rizk screaming for help. Stanton Boothby happened to be driving by and saw Rizk being dragged around by her husband’s pit bull.
Boothby got out of his car and ran to help, using the first item he could get his hands on – a guitar stand.
“When I saw this happening, I grabbed it out of the back of the car and went to the dog and I said, ‘Dog, off!’ and I just pushed like this. I never hit the dog, he just looked up and when he saw it coming he backed up.”
Neighbors had already called 911 by this time, and responding officers arrived and distracted the dog while another applied a tourniquet to Rizk’s “shredded” arm that was damaged almost up to her armpit. A tourniquet was also applied to Rizk’s legs, where she had more injuries.…
PALATKA, FL – Police have charged an 11-year-old boy with battery after they say he choked a 4-year-old child who is currently hospitalized in critical condition.
Police responded to a home at the Westover Mobile Home Park after receiving a 911 call around 4 a.m. regarding a 4-year-old child who was not breathing.
The responding officer performed CPR on the boy until paramedics arrived and transported him to the hospital.
Police noticed the injured child had strangulation marks on his neck, so they began interviewing the 12 people who lived in the home – six adults and six children eleven years old and under – and eventually determined that an 11-year-old boy was responsible for choking the toddler.
Police arrested the boy in the presence of his mother and placed him in a juvenile detention center on a charge of aggravated battery resulting in serious damage.
Capt. Dick Schauland of the Sheriff’s Office said the 11-year-old had only been back in the home a short time after returning from a Miami rehab program.…
CHARLESTON, WV – A prostitute in West Virginia shot and killed 45-year-old Neal Falls with his own gun after he tried to kill her, and may have very well stopped a serial killer’s cross-country murder spree.
According to “Heather” she had arranged a hookup with Falls via her online ad on Backpage that described her as a “sexy, red-headed sweetheart.”
But things turned bad real quick when Falls burst into Heather’s apartment brandishing a gun and asked, “live or die?”
Falls then grabbed Heather by the throat and tried to choke the life out of her. But Falls underestimated the 5-foot-6-inch, 130-pound Heather, who had no intentions of dying that day.
“When he strangled me, I grabbed my rake, and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I shot him,” Heather said. “I grabbed the gun and shot behind me I knew he was there to kill me.”
Heather, suffering from a separated shoulder and a broken vertebrae, ran to a neighbor’s apartment and called 911.…
NASHVILLE, TN — Police have arrested 37-year-old Michael Delk for the sexual exploitation of his three-month-old daughter.
Police first started investigating Delk after getting a call that he’d smacked his wife around at the Roadway Inn motel where they both lived with their baby.
Delk was arrested and during a follow-up investigation, police were told that there were some images on Delk’s cellphone that they may be interested in.
What police found on the phone, aside from over 30 images of children engaged in sexual activity, was images of Delk having some sexy time with his baby daughter.
Delk is now in jail on $76,000 bond on charges of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual exploitation of minors. Police say additional charges against Delk are anticipated.
If the allegations are true, maybe we can also anticipate fellow inmates stomping Delk’s head into mush. Or Delk’s limbs twitching against his cell floor after he hangs himself with his shirt. One can dream.…
Lewis was with Christopher Lynch, 21, and a man that she had just met, Clayton Webb Jr., 21, when they went to the home of a man selling a Ruger .22 caliber rifle that Webb was interested in purchasing.
The seller was not home, but he had left the rifle in his truck so they could check it out. According to Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Joel Fish, Lewis suggested they take a picture of the rifle.
Webb told officers that he didn’t realize that there was a magazine in the rifle, and everyone figured it out the hard way when he accidentally fired the rifle and hit Lewis in the chest as she was taking a picture of him. Lewis was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died before she could be flown to a Charlotte hospital.
No charges have been filed against Webb or Lynch at this time, but the sheriff’s office is continuing their investigation into the incident.…
WICHITA, KS – Police say Damion Looney has been charged with attempted murder and is also the person responsible for posting a video online of himself repeatedly throwing his girlfriend’s kitten against a wall, killing it.
The 27-year-old man was initially arrested after he pepper-sprayed his 23-year-old girlfriend at a nightclub. Later, at his girlfriend’s home, he fired a couple of shots into the floor. Instead of calling police, the girlfriend contacted four male friends.
When those men showed up at the home, Looney pistol-whipped a 21-year-old man on the head and then shot a 24-year-old man through the door, striking him in the head.
Looney fled the scene on foot and was arrested Friday morning on one count of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated kidnapping, and one count of robbery and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Here’s where things get real nasty. Looney used his girlfriend’s Snapchat account to post a video of himself repeatedly throwing the woman’s 16-week-old kitten into a wall.…
