WELLINGTON, KS – Police have arrested 33-year-old Lindsey Blansett after she allegedly beat and stabbed her son to death because he “would be better off in Heaven.”
On Sunday night, police say Blansett went into her 10-year-old son’s bedroom while he was sleeping. She allegedly hit the boy with a rock before using a knife to stab him several times in the chest. She then called 911.
A portion of the 911 call can be heard here, but here’s an excerpt.
Blansett: Hi, this is Nicole Blansett. I just stabbed my son.
Dispatch: I’m sorry?
Blansett: I just stabbed my son. I thought somebody was coming in to get us.

Back in 2012, the daughter of Kristopher Speigner and Joy Lynn Speigner died after ingesting a dish washing detergent tablet. They did not call for help until the following morning because, according to police, they were “too high and too drunk” to do anything to save her.
Almost a year later, they were both arrested and charged with negligent homicide and ordered held on $6000 bond. They made bail, but failed to appear for their bench trial in September and a judge issued a warrant for their arrest.
“Last time we had a court date, we continued it, but they were still required to be here and they didn’t show up at that time,” explained ADA Jason Scully-Clemmons. “I felt it had to do with the fact they knew it was gonna be continued, and so that was not much of a big deal.…
According to reports, the 28-year-old mother became enraged after learning that her 9-year-old daughter had been called a curse word by an 11-year-old boy at Eccleston Elementary.
Instead of going to the school, or talking to the boy’s parents, Rivera went to the school and waited for the boy to exit. When the boy got on his bike, Rivera walked up to him and lost her fucking mind. After throwing the boy off his bike, she physically assaulted him.
“She slammed me into the wall and then she came behind me and started choking me and hitting me on the head,” the boy said. All of this was captured on school surveillance video.
If that weren’t enough, she also threw the boy’s bike in her van and forced him to get inside. “She told me ‘tell me the instructions to your house or I’ll kill you,'” he said.…
McCabe is the mother of three children with a criminal history that includes attempted endangerment of a child or elderly adult, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a couple of probation violations.
Over the last few years, the courts have ordered her to undergo drug and parenting classes, as well as mental health evaluations. I do not know the results of that last one, but with the latest allegations, it’s apparent the first two didn’t stick.
Her recent legal woes started in March, after a a relative found nude images of McCabe’s 5-year-old daughter on the child’s Nintendo DSI. The relative reported their findings and the child was interviewed by the Division of Child and Family Services a few days later.
The girl would tell a caseworker that her mother had taken “loads” of pictures of her “without any clothes on.” She would also tell a caseworker that her mother “would then show the pictures to men,” and “printed the pictures and sold them to people for $100.”
The Nintendo DSI was handed over to police who would later find 19 pornographic images of the girl.…

Earlier this month, someone tipped off County Animal Control that they had received a video on a social networking site that showed two teens feeding a cat to two large dogs while the teens could be heard in the background encouraging the dogs.
Animal Control staff reviewed the video, which was recorded over the summer, and then contacted the Kern County Sheriff’s Office to request an investigation. Detectives were eventually able to identify the teen who posted the video online, then later identify the two teens in the video – a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old boy.
Both teens were arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall. They are now facing animal cruelty charges. Police are asking that anyone with any further information on this case to call the Sheriff’s Office at 661-861-3110, or Secret Witness at 661-322-4040.
I’ve said it before, but I am so glad that we did not have the ability to easily record stupid shit we did as teenagers.…

According to Furfest organizers, at around 12:45 AM on Sunday, the Hyatt Regency O’Hare received a complaint of a chemical odor spreading across the ninth floor.
