Lafayette, LA - A woman kidnapped by her violent ex-boyfriend was rescued by family members after they shot and killed her captor.
Last Wednesday, Bethany Arceneaux, 29, was abducted by her estranged boyfriend, Scott Thomas, who is also the father of their 2 year old son. The kidnapping took place in a daycare parking lot as she was picking up their son. A witness observed Bethany screaming, honking the horn and trying to fight off Thomas and begging someone to take the boy. The witness, Derrimetrie Robinson, was able to take the child as Thomas shoved Bethany into his car and sped away.
That evening, police found Thomas’ white Buick near a field with one of Bethany’s shoes in it, but, other than that, there were no new leads and no sign of Bethany, until Friday. That’s when police and family were searching for her in the fields near where Thomas’ Buick was left, and residents gave the family members a tip about an abandoned house in a field nearby. …
San Francisco, CA - A woman who went missing from her hospital room was found dead 17 days later in one of the hospital’s stairwells.
On September 19th, 57-year-old Lynne Spaulding was admitted to San Francisco General Hospital, apparently for complications from a bladder infection. Her family says she was frail and thin when admitted, and were worried about her condition. Hospital staff were supposedly checking on Spaulding every 15 minutes due to her “frail condition and confused mental state,” which sounds a bit more serious than a simple bladder infection. Although, some sources are saying the medication the hospital had her on was making her disoriented.
The hospital said they last saw Spaulding in her fifth floor room at 10:15 am on September 21st, and that her condition had improved. A nurse checked on her fifteen minutes later and she was gone. When her boyfriend and two friends came to visit Spaulding shortly after, they were told she’d gone missing. Her family filed a missing persons report after the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department and hospital staff conducted, what they believed to be, a thorough search of the hospital.…
Chandler, AZ - Christopher Jackson has been arrested after allegedly branding his initials onto his girlfriend’s vaginal area.
The incident occurred back in May, but the victim only recently reported it to police. According to her, Jackson, 49, wanted to go out dancing after a baseball game. The girlfriend said she was too tired, so he gave her some pills to help her stay awake. They did not.
In fact, she passed out and awoke later with extreme pain in her special lady parts and the initials, “CJ” seared into them. The girlfriend states that Jackson had bragged about branding previous girlfriends and wanted to brand her as well because “her vagina was his.”
Police found Jackson’s butane torch and branding tool inside his home. Jackson was booked into jail on aggravated assault with serious physical injury.
I found a Chris Jackson on Facebook who really likes dancing. I have a vagina (please, hold your applause) and the thought of some guy branding it is bad enough, but knowing my genitalia was mutilated by a guy who dances in pleather pants would just be adding salt to the gash.…
Lauderhill, FL - Two police officers turned themselves in last week amid allegations that they pressured two female DUI suspects into giving them sexual favors in return for not arresting them. One officer allegedly ordered one of the women to punch him in the nuts because it turned him on.
Police officer Thomas Merenda, 34, and his partner, Franklin Hartley, 33, pulled over two intoxicated women around 4 am at a Taco Bell. The women allege that Hartley told them he could arrest them, but then told them to drive behind a strip mall where Merenda was waiting.
Hartley followed them and once there, began to “kiss and touch” the passenger’s breasts “while reminding her she could be arrested.” Then he reportedly ordered her to have sex with him, which she did.
At the same time, Merenda gave the other female a very thorough “pat down” and then asked her to punch him in the “nuts” and “reassured her that this was ok and this turned him on.” His ever-helpful partner encouraged the woman to do so by saying that he “really enjoys this” and the woman kicked Merenda in the balls.…
Anaconda, MT - Jeremy Brent Cramer, 38, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to stabbing and beating his 3 year old son to death and leaving his body in a field in southwestern Montana.
On July 8th, Cramer’s wife, Nataliya, called police in their hometown of Lacey, WA to report that her husband had left with their son and now she could not get a hold of him. She was alarmed to discover that he had used his gas card to fill up in Moses Lake, about 3 1/2 hours away from their home, but she did not think her son was in danger, so no Amber Alert was issued. There was a missing person report and a “be on the lookout” for Cramer and his son.
Later that same day in Montana, Cramer was discovered in a bathroom by a convenience store clerk, washing blood from his clothes and minus a son. Apparently, he had hitched a short ride there and the man who gave Cramer a ride asked him about the blood on his clothes, to which Cramer responded, “I had a traumatic experience and no one is dead.” Liar. …
Upper Darby, PA - A couple in Pennsylvania were at the wrong place at the wrong time when they got caught having sex in a public park by 25 police officers on bicycles.
The officers were doing some bicycle training in Naylor’s Run Park when they encountered 37-year-old Richard McBride giving the business to a 41-year-old potato, called a Jennifer Harvey, near a baseball field.
“There they are, on the first base line. There’s a bench, she is bent over the bench and our friend is behind her with his pants down to his ankle, banging away,” said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood while gagging.
Police approached the pair and charged them both with lewdness and disorderly conduct. “Imagine being arrested by 25 cops,” Chitwood said. “They were as shocked as the police were.”
Despite having sex in the open in broad daylight, police say they’re the only ones that will need years of therapy as no one else was in the vicinity.
Investigators say they don’t know if the two were dating, but don’t suspect prostitution. …
Back in January, Carie Charlesworth had to call police three times in one weekend due to harassment issues involving her ex-husband, Martin Charlesworth. On Monday morning, when she went to work, she advised the principal of the situation and asked that police be called if he showed up at the school. Not deterred by the restraining order he had just been served, he showed up at the school.
The school went on lockdown, and Martin Charlesworth was arrested on two felony counts. After that incident, Carie was put on indefinite leave with pay and her four children who were attending the school were also banned.
Finally, in April, she received a letter from Holy Trinity School advising her that because of her ex-husband’s threatening and menacing behavior, her presence at the school posed a safety risk to the students and that she would not be receiving a teaching agreement for the next school year. …
Chicago, IL - DD’s most talked-about victimizer, the dreaded pit bull, seems to be suffering a bit of karma lately at the hands of the human penis. We just posted about a pit bull getting sexed up by a man in an alley, now we have Gerardo Perez. The 50-year-old was arrested after he sexually assaulted a pit bull in a Chicago animal shelter. Oh, how the mighty pit bull has fallen.
Perez was on a group tour of the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility when he broke off from the group and was found by an employee going into a restricted area. The employee told him he needed to leave, but returned later to find Perez had not left. Or more specifically, the employee found Perez had not left and was inside a kennel, on his hands and knees, next to a grey and white pit bull. Apparently, he was just “finishing up.”
Perez made “inculpatory statements” regarding his having sexual conduct with the dog to several employees, police said. …
West Point, UT - A 15-year-old boy in Utah has been arrested in connection with the stabbing deaths of his younger brothers, aged 4 and 10.
Last Wednesday, 15-year-old Aza Vidinhar was babysitting his two adopted brothers while his mother took the family’s three other children to a dance recital. When his mother returned at 7:35, she found the 4 year old dead and called 911. Presumably already overwhelmed at that point, she did not realize that her 10 year old was also dead in the home and thought he was also missing with the 15 year old. When officers arrived, they found the 10 year old dead in another part of the house.
Unable to find the 15 year old, police did not know if he was another victim or a suspect. He was found walking about five miles away from the home later that night with blood stains on his shirt. Once picked up, he was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and apparently he spoke “pretty bluntly” to investigators. …
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.…
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” .…
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? …
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. …
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. …
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. …
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.…
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.…
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. …
