Where Is Haleigh Cummings?

February 11, 2009 at 4:07 pm by  

Putnam County, FL – I usually deal with fear and disgust by hiding behind humour, it works well for me most of the time. As I read about missing Florida girl, Haleigh Cummings, I feel a chill that no humour can mask. This makes writing far more difficult for me, no emotional buffers. At approximately 3:30 am yesterday morning, 5 year old Haleigh Cummings of Hermit’s Cove, FL was not in her bed when her father’s girlfriend checked on her shortly before her father arrived home from work.  In fact, she was nowhere to be found at all.  By 11:00 am an Amber Alert had been issued by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.…

Richard Fowler Makes Bad Decisions

February 11, 2009 at 9:05 am by  


There is a video here. If you cannot see it, your workplace is strict!

Seattle, WA – I got an email about this interesting hit and run story out of Seattle. Richard Fowler, 39, has found himself a good bit down the wrong path and has hit a crossroads. Up until now, Fowler’s drug addiction has had him making decisions that have gotten him into a bit of trouble. Last week his craptacular decision making skills garnered him possible hit and run and kidnapping charges. The story almost sounds like an episode of My Name is Earl, if Earl was a drug addict, and the item on his list went:

Number 43: Once kidnapped a little girl after I hit her in the face with my car, dropped her off at a convenience store…

Charlie W. Myers

Dayton, OH – Jennifer Nelson, 29, was a young married mother, putting her four-year-old son to bed on Friday night.  Jenny’s husband Eddie was working at one of his three jobs – jobs he worked so that Jenny could stay home with little William.  As Jenny put Will to bed, evil broke into the Nelson home.  Charlie W. Myers, 22, shot and killed Jennifer Nelson in front of her little boy.  He then stole two computers – and Will.…

Danny Platt Said “No” to Child Support

January 4, 2009 at 1:03 am by  

Ja'Shawn Powell at dreamindemon.comJa’ Shawn Powell

New Orleans, LA – Two and a half years ago, a woman gave birth to a little boy and named him Ja’ Shawn. Ja’ Shawn’s father didn’t seem to show much interest in being a daddy, as he never visited him. Of course, the courts expect fathers to help with the raising of their children at least financially, even when the extent of their parental involvement was a single sperm donation, and recently Danny Platt was ordered to pay child support. Apparently this caused Platt to cogitate on his hopes, dreams, desires, and the course of his future, and Friday, for the first time ever, the 22-year-old picked up Ja’ Shawn for a weekend visit. You might guess that Platt had decided it was time to step up to the plate, get to know his son, and be a good father to him, but guess what? You’d be completely wrong.…

CANDLER, N.C. — I had been following a story over the New Years holiday in which a man had allegedly shot and killed his ex-wife, two neighbors and then abducted his two young children. The last I had checked before crashing last night, was that police were still looking for him driving a white Toyota Tundra. I woke up this morning to see that the three had been located at a residence, and that a standoff was live and in progress.…

The Murder of Rowan Ford… One Year Later

November 3, 2008 at 8:45 am by  

Stella, MO – One year ago today, on November 3, 2007, nine-year-old Rowan Damia Ford was brutally raped and murdered by her mother’s best friend, Chris Collings, and her stepfather, David Wesley Spears. One year ago today, Rowan was dumped in a sinkhole and left to rot while her mother looked for her and her stepfather said she’d gone over to a friend’s house. One year ago today, Rowan’s life ended – but her story had just begun. When a child dies, people use words like “angel” and “legacy”. When a child goes missing, people suddenly have a clarity of memory they never had before. In Rowan’s case, she was reported missing just before 7:00 p.m. on Saturday evening, November 3 – by which time she’d been dead over twelve hours. Rowan had taken to sleeping in the back of her mother’s car some time before. Colleen Spears worked the overnight shift at Wal-Mart, and Rowan, the youngest of Colleen’s children and the only one still living at home, was uncomfortable in the house with her stepfather David Spears, 25.…

Farwell, Mich – Justin Gaskill, 27, cut the screen window of a home in the town of Farwell, slipped inside and forced an 11-year-old, who at first thought it was a prank, out of her bed at knifepoint. He then made the girl walk with him almost two miles to his home where he sexually assaulted her. He then let the girl go the next morning, warning her not to tell anyone what had happened. By time the girl made her way back home, the mother had already reported her missing and was outside talking with police. The little girl ran to her mother and told them what had happened. Based on her descriptions, Gaskill was located and arrested.…

UPDATE 10/26/08 – Paige and Levi have been found and their parents are en route to pick them up in Council Bluffs, Iowa, where they were spotted under an overpass. The car Levi had stolen from his parents was abandoned in Omaha, Nebraska, and the pair had only sleeping bags for shelter.  They have been taken to juvie, where they are awaiting their parents.  I’m guessing that somebody’s gonna get grounded.  We at the Demon are always happy for a happy ending – and a safe recovery is very happy indeed.   Score another one for the D’D Amber Alert tradition, and good lookin’ out to the person who spotted them.  Yay!

What Happened To Jennifer Lee Hampton?

September 22, 2008 at 10:23 pm by  

UPDATE 10/01/08 – Valentino Vasquez Miranda, 19, has been charged with first-degree felony murder in connection with the disappearance and death of Jennifer Lee Hampton. Hotel key card records showed that Miranda, a Days Inn employee, used his passkey to enter Jennifer’s room, where he then sexually assaulted and strangled her. Both Miranda and Rogelio Melchor, 38, are illegal immigrants who were arrested on forgery charges earlier in the investigation. Melchor has not been charged, but is considered a person of interest in Jennifer Hampton’s murder.  Authorities say more charges for both men may be forthcoming.  I’ll update as more details become available.

Knoxville, TN and Florence, AL – Jennifer Lee Hampton was only in town for a business trip.
