Cahokia, IL - Mario Hunt, a 35-year-old coach and teacher’s aide for special needs students at Cahokia High School, is currently behind bars after being accused of sexually abusing a male student and knowingly exposing him to HIV.
Initially, the school received complaints about Hunt making inappropriate posts on Myspace. Not having been on Myspace for years, I decided to do a little investigative journalism and find these alleged pictures/postings.
But, after 10 minutes of not being able to successfully navigate the “new” Myspace, I was left feeling old and angry. So, I will have to leave it to your terrifying imagination, my dear reader.
The allegations against Hunt quickly escalated about 10 days ago when a student and his mother asked police to investigate the conduct between the suspect and other young boys.
It was discovered that Hunt had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy from January-June 2011 and knowingly exposed the boy to HIV. The relationship with the teen has not been released, but charges say that Hunt “holds a position of trust authority or supervision” in relation to the minor.…Continue Reading
Santa Fe, NM - An 18-year-old high school student claims he was raped by his horticulture teacher, 31-year-old Jennifer Vigil, in her classroom at Pojoaque Valley High School.
The student states Vigil pressured him into sex acts when he turned in an assignment to her after school. She allegedly locked the classroom door and said, ”You’re not leaving until I get something from you.” He initially refused, but Vigil agreed to let him leave if he let her perform a sex act on him.
Vigil admits having sex with him in her classroom, but insists the sex was consensual. However the student told police that the idea of sex with her was “disgusting.” Harsh. Vigil claims he requested oral sex from her and that led to intercourse, and he again requested to have sex with her at a later date and she agreed. He took a picture with his cellphone of her blowing him and showed it to police.
These stories are now a dime a dozen; male teenage student, attractive-ish married female teacher, sex, everybody gasps thinking a woman would know better, men everywhere ask, “Where were these teachers when I was a student?” and the overwhelming response is, “You were too ugly” .…Continue Reading
Redford Township, MI - Police have arrested 64-year-old Dennis McCauley after it was discovered that he had been living with the corpse of 72-year-old Ann Marquis since November.
Dennis McCauley had been living with Mrs. Marquis in her mobile home at Long’s Mobile Home Court just outside of Detroit for about three years. When her rent hadn’t been paid for 6 months, the manager came to her home to evict her. When he knocked on the door, Dennis McCauley answered, and was apparently pretty nonchalant considering there was a rotting corpse laid out on the pull out sofa within easy view of the front door.
McCauley let an officer into the trailer and “the officer noted a pungent smell of decay and observed a corpse in the room immediately to the right of the front door,” states Redford Township Sgt. Kevin Crittenden. “The corpse had obviously been deceased for some time and was partially dried out.” I can’t help but imagine a comically short conversation between the officer and McCauley. Is that a dead body on the couch? Why, yes, officer.…Continue Reading
Carlsbad, NM - Courtney Hutchins, 22, was arrested for child endangerment after climbing over a barricade with her 3 year old son, Ethan, to get a closer look at a bobcat. Apparently she got a little too close as the bobcat was able to scratch the boy’s head badly enough to require 8 skull staples.
Hutchins, her brother LeeVon, and her son were at Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park when they decided to climb over a 40-inch high railing. Once over the outer barrier, they coaxed the cats to the inner fence and pet them. A bobcat reached through the chainlink, grabbed the boy’s head and pulled him towards it, inflicting serious head wounds on the 3 year old.
Hutchins told police she did not see any of the many signs warning against being dangerously stupid. She also said she did not know the word “barrier” before she heard police use it.
Feelings of anger and/or homicidal ideations are a natural first reaction to learning how careless and unconcerned for her own child’s welfare this woman could be. A little snooping on her Facebook, however, reveals a lot.…Continue Reading
Sacramento, CA - Craig Fugate, a 30-year-old graffiti artist, accidentally asphyxiated himself while allegedly attempting to graffiti a Sacramento high-rise.
Apparently, Fugate entered the 1201 K Tower on Sunday, got onto the roof, and then used rope left by window washers to crudely fashion a harness to lower himself off a 17th floor landing on the east side of the office building. The rope ended up looped around his chest and legs, squeezing him into a fetal position as the rope cinched around him.
Police and fire responded to a call for help at 7:44 am Monday morning, when Fugate’s body was discovered dangling from the building. Emergency crews rappelled down the building and confirmed Fugate was dead and, since is body wasn’t retrieved until around 9 am, a lot of people got to see a dead body hanging 160 feet in the air. Markers, glass etching tools, spray paint and a stencil were also found at the scene.
Fugate’s uncle, Joseph Fugate, stated, “I have never known for him to do that before. He is an artist. I know that.” Craig Fugate had been living in Vancouver, WA and had told his uncle he was planning on moving to Sacramento.…Continue Reading
Cascade Township, MI - Massage therapist, 49-year-old Lawrence Urban, was arrested on charges of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct after a female customer reported that he touched her inappropriately during a massage.
The victim says she received a massage from Urban (*gag*) on March 15th at the Therapeutic Stress Free Massage Center that will probably leave her compulsively showering for the rest of her life after she claims Urban touched her genital area (*dry retch*) and asked her “if she wanted to orgasm.” Oh God, here it comes… (*baaarf*)
After the victim said, “no,” Urban allegedly told her, “your body is telling me one thing, but you are telling me another.” Urban admitted to police he’d touched the woman’s genital area without her consent while she was laying face-down on the massaging table. He explained that he was given every indication through the woman’s body language, and the way her muscles felt, that she wanted to be pleased sexually.
Urban is currently free on bond while awaiting arraignment. He is being charged as a second-time felony offender due to a 1981 conviction for delivering marijuana to Texas. Police are asking for any other victims to please contact them. Fellas, until vaginas learn to speak for themselves, you really ought to just take the woman’s word for it.…Continue Reading
Springdale, AR - Here’s not one, but TWO dead babies to ruin your day. Travis Fox is accused of shaking two of his babies to death a year and a half apart.
Last Wednesday, Fox’s 7 month old baby, William, was brought to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The doctors found the injuries suspicious and Fox, 24, confessed to investigators that he violently shook the child for an extended amount of time because the child was “fussing.’”
Horrifying, sickening, enraging, but not unheard of. That’s why there’s such a thing as dontshakeyourbaby.com. But here’s where it gets mind-blowingly awful.
Investigators then found out that Travis Fox was under investigation for the September 2011 death of his 6 month old baby boy, Travis II, in another county.
In the most recent infanctide, Fox “admitted that he shook his six-month-old son for 30-45 seconds because he was ‘fussing’ . . . Mr. Fox said he was angered and tired because he was up for two days without sleep.” He also admitted drinking five beers before killing his baby.…Continue Reading
Everett, WA - A guard at Snohomish County Jail has been charged with custodial misconduct after he allegedly traded cookies for sex with an inmate.
Abner Canda, 58, has been accused of giving a 22-year-old female inmate homemade cookies in exchange for sexual favors. The woman went to police in January saying she felt guilty about what she had participated in. “I’m sorry,” she told police. “I’m trying to change and be a better person now. I’m ashamed for my actions. That’s why I’m saying something.”
The female, only identified as “C.D.”, told police that she willingly showed Canda her breasts in exchange for some food last May. She was released from jail, but once again found herself as an inmate in October 2012. She states on November 19th, Canda “came into my room behind me and kissed me and touched my breasts and also put his hand down my pants and placed his finger inside of [my vagina].” Then, in January, she states Canda performed oral sex on her and gave her homemade chocolate chip cookies in return for the sexual favors.…Continue Reading
But that’s not all. The cockroach in the ear incident happened way back in September. The neglect was observed by the boy’s school over and over again during the school year. The 9 year old boy regularly showed up to school reeking of cat urine, wearing the same Pull-ups and in need of medication. Another time, cockroaches were seen crawling out of his backpack.
Robert, 33 and Christina, 32, denied their child needed medication, according to the school. Their home was in “deplorable conditions” and they also denied their son sufficient food. Teachers would give him food and clean him. He is in alternative care now and his parents are in jail on $5,000 bond.
A 9 year old boy in Pull-ups? In need of medication? Nothing specifically states the boy was special needs, but those two clues have got to make one wonder. The only thing to ruin your day faster than a story about an abused child is a story about an abused special needs child. You’re welcome.…Continue Reading
Kansas City, MO - An emaciated, developmentally disabled 17 year old boy was discovered handcuffed to a steel pole in a basement Monday where he had apparently been since being pulled out of school by his father last September.
Police responded to the home on Monday on a tip made from a neighbor on a child abuse hotline. A woman answered the door when police arrived and stated she lived there with her husband and 17 year old stepson. When asked where the stepson was, she said he was downstairs sleeping in his room. She offered to go get him, but the officers requested to go down there themselves.
Their first clue that shit was terribly, terribly wrong was that as soon as their footsteps echoed on the basement stairs, they heard a voice from the basement saying, “I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything,” according to Officer Jonathan Stone’s report. The report continues, “. . . I turned on the lights. I then observed a thin frail looking male getting out of the fetal position on the concrete floor around a steal [sic] support pole .…Continue Reading
Vero Beach, FL - Brenda Schumann reportedly found her estranged husband in bed with his naked girlfriend and did what any scorned woman would do in the same circumstances; she took a shit on the kitchen floor.
According to police, late last month, Brenda Shumann, 51, barged into her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s bedroom at 2:30 am carrying a rifle and threatening to kill him and his lover. Her husband was able to get the gun away from her. Not to be defeated that easily, she then urinated on the carpet outside the bedroom then proceeded to the kitchen where she defecated on the floor. She then found a second rifle and vandalized the house with it, smashing mirrors, pictures and Christmas decorations.
Her rage and her bowels finally empty, she vacated the premises, leaving the rifle behind.
Brenda was located at her nearby home later, resisted arrest, which almost never works, and is now charged with aggravated assault/domestic violence, battery and resisting arrest.
She is quoted as saying to her arresting deputies, “I found him in bed with a naked chick. What was I supposed to do?” Excellent question, Brenda. I’m not one to admonish a scorned woman for acting a tad irrationally in matters of the heart, but I do wonder this; was the poop premeditated? Did she save it all day for that confrontation? Or was it more a matter of her getting so angry it made her have to poop? Well, I think I’ve given us all plenty to ponder for now.…Continue Reading
Malverne, NY – The parents of a 17-year-old boy who crashed his car and killed four of his friends back in October are now being charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle for allowing him to drive without a valid driver’s license.
On October 8th, 17 year old Joseph Beer was driving with his four 17-18 year old friends as passengers. Around 3:40 am, he was doing about 110 mph when he lost control of his vehicle on a stretch of road called “Dead Man’s Curve.” The car flew into the woods and split in two after hitting a tree. Chris Khan, Peter Kanhai and Darian Ramnarine, all 18, and Neal Rajapa, 17, were all killed in the crash, none of whome were wearing their seatbelt. Joseph was wearing a seat belt and survived.
He is now facing 25 years in prison after being charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated vehicular homicide, vehicular manslaughter in the first degree, four counts of manslaughter in the second degree, and a whole host of other charges that are just different configurations of the words manslaughter, degree and reckless. The driving while intoxicated charge is creating a bit of a stir because he had not been drinking, but did have marijuana in his system.…Continue Reading
Boise, ID - Michael Watkins was arrested Monday on charges of felony burglary and grand theft after he broke into the Zoo Boise and beating a monkey to death.
Saturday morning around 4:30 am, a security guard at the zoo observed two males in dark clothing outside the fence near the primate exhibit. They fled and police were unable to find them. Just before dawn, Zoo Boise Director Steve Burns was searching the zoo and heard a groan that he first thought was human. The sounds were actually coming from a Patas monkey who had been beaten and was barely moving. The zoo’s veterinarian was called but the monkey died as a result of blunt force trauma to its head and neck.
Police discovered a hat with a distinctive skull design near the site that was thought to have been left by one of the intruders. Turned out to be a pretty good clue because it led police to 22 year old Michael Watkins. “I speak for many of us in the police department and the community who were angered and outraged over this senseless crime,” said Boise Police Chief Michael Masterson. “As usual, it was a combination of a citizen tip and good police work that led us to the arrest in this case.”
What kind of horrendous douchebag would beat to death a 30 lb monkey unable to escape its zoo enclosure? You’re probably not going to be surprised, but it turns out to be the same kind of douchebag that takes horrible douchebaggy pictures of himself and slathers them all over any and all social media.…Continue Reading
Police were called to the home of 47-year-old William Lewallen by a neighbor who had found a 4-year-old boy naked and locked outside in 40 degree weather. Inside the residence, the officers also discovered a 16-month-old girl covered in feces and locked inside a dog crate. A third naked child was found in bed with their passed out father.
Mr. Lewallen’s neighbors told investigators they heard a child crying Sunday night and went to investigate. The two men walked through a wooded area behind Lewallen’s home and discovered someone had thrown out a perfectly good white boy. According to the neighbor, they saw a naked 4-year-old boy in Lewallen’s backyard crying, “Daddy, let me in! I’m cold!”
The men gave the boy a jacket and knocked on Lewallen’s door but, when no one answered, one of the men took the boy home and called police. ”When officers arrived, they spoke with the neighbor and investigated further,” said Officer Leland Ashley of Tulsa PD. “As they approached the house, they could hear screaming and crying coming from inside.”
When officers looked through a small window, they saw a naked toddler locked inside a metal dog crate. With nobody answering the door, they broke into the home and were “immediately hit with the overwhelming stench of feces,” according to Officer Ashley. Police removed the 16-month-old girl from her cage and discovered she was partly responsible for the smell,as she was covered in her own filth.…Continue Reading
Denver, CO – The family of a man who collapsed and died on his front porch say a mailman walked by the dead man but did not call for help because he thought it was a Halloween decoration.
On Nov 2nd, 46-year-old Dale Porch returned home from his graveyard shift but never made it inside. His body was found on the porch by his adult son around noon. His family noted that the mail had been delivered and presumed the mailman must have seen Porch, who had collapsed just a few feet away from the mailbox.
Turns out the mailman did, in fact, see Porch laying on the ground that day. In fact, he walked right by his body to deliver the man’s mail. But before anyone starts berating the mailman over his dedication to his job and lack of compassion, he has a pretty good excuse.
He states he thought the unconscious Mr. Porch was actually a mannequin set out as a Halloween decoration. While the post office is defending the mailman’s actions, calling it an unfortunate situation, they did take him off his route while they investigate.…Continue Reading
