JASPER, FL – Police have arrested a man who allegedly left his toddler outside overnight as Irma passed through the city.

The mother of the 19-month-old called police Sunday night to report her daughter was missing.

She said the girl’s father, 36-year-old Angelo Mitchell, left the house with the girl but returned a couple of hours later without her.

When questioned by police, an intoxicated Mitchell admitted he had been watching his daughter and had been drinking, but denied ever taking the girl out of the house. He said the girl was safe and probably with a family friend.

With Irma passing through the city, police dogs had problems locating the missing girl’s scent in the storm. It wouldn’t be until the next day that a neighbor found the girl lying in the yard of a home 400 to 500 yards away.

She was alive ( a rarity for this site) but her skin appeared purple and was covered in scratches and bug bites. Authorities believe the girl was left exposed to the storm’s rain and wind gusts the entire night.…

SACRAMENTO, CA – Police have arrested a man accused of killing three children in a Sacramento apartment during a domestic dispute.

There are a lot of unanswered questions regarding this story, but what I do know is that police were called to the Timbers Apartments on Wednesday night on a report of a domestic violence incident.

As police were on their way to the apartment, they received a second call informing them that there may be three dead children inside the apartment.

Once at the apartment, police found a woman who was “the victim of domestic abuse” and three of her children. Despite attempts by first-responders, all three of the children were pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman accused her husband, 33-year-old Robert Hodges, of murdering her children and that she was present when it happened.

Police immediately began searching Hodges, who had fled the scene on foot before police arrived. He was apprehended without incident a few hours later on I-80.

The manner in which the children died has not been released, but going by Sgt.…

WICHITA, KS – A couple have been arrested after the woman’s 3-year-old boy was found decomposing inside a block of concrete.

Miranda Miller, 36, and her boyfriend Stephen Bodine, 40, have been arrested after their ex-landlord found a cement structure inside the house they were evicted from that had a child’s body decomposing inside it.

Reports state that a landlord cleaning his property stumbled on what looked like a large cement coffin with a foul-smelling odor coming from it. He alerted police who had to bring in a forklift to remove it from the house.

Inside they would find the remains of what is, more than likely, 3-year-old Evan Brewer — who has been missing since July.

In March, Carlo Brewer contacted the Department of Children and Families claiming that his son was being abused by Miller. DCF opened an investigation and on July 6, the court had awarded a protection of abuse order for Carlo on his behalf of his son.

Incidentally, that is last day Evan was ever seen and Brewer has been trying to locate Evan ever since.…

ALLOWAY, NJ – A woman has been arrested after she passed out in the front seat of her car for hours and her 2-year-old daughter fatally injured herself while trying to escape her car seat.

Deanna Joseph, 39, called 911 around 9:45 p.m. to report her daughter was unresponsive. When police arrived at the scene they found the girl dead in her car seat in a car running in the driveway.

After questioning Joseph, police determined she had pulled into her driveway and passed out for hours with the car running and the heater running. During this time, her daughter struggled to get out of her car seat and may have accidentally hanged herself in the straps.

Salem County Prosecutor John T. Lenahan said the child had no obvious signs of blunt force trauma and the exact cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office. My guess it will be either asphyxiation, heat exhaustion or a combination of both.

Joseph was charged with second-degree child endangerment, charges that I am sure will be upgraded once an official cause of death is determined, and especially considering Joseph’s history of doing this exact, same thing multiple times in the past.…

GREENDALE, WI – A woman in Wisconsin has been arrested after she allegedly drugged her 10-year-old son before sexually assaulting him.

According to reports, the boy had stayed with his mother, 35-year-old Tara Gotovnik, for two nights in August.

When his father picked him up, the boy told his father he “never wanted to go back to Gotovnik’s residence again.”

When asked why, the boy told his father his mother had drugged and sexually assaulted him.

The boy’s father took him to police where he told investigators that after he drank a slushy made a friend of Gotovnik’s, he threw up. He said that’s when Gotovnik gave him a sleeping pill to help him go to sleep.

The pill had the opposite effect, the boy said, causing him to stay awake and feel sick. That’s when Gotovnik told him to come to the couch where she removed her shirt and had him perform a sex act.

According to the criminal complaint, Gotovnik then instructed the boy through the use of sex toys, telling him they could “go online and make money for doing it.”

A search warrant was executed at Gotovnik’s residence where police found sex toys and drugs. …

PHOENIX, AZ – This is a wonderful update to a story I first reported on back in 2011. One of the women responsible for the death of 10-year-old Ame Deal was just handed the death sentence.

For those of you who may not know of Ame and her horrific death, she was one of a dozen children living in a three-bedroom house with 10 adults.

These adults included Ame’s father, David Deal, her grandmother, Judith Deal, her aunt and legal guardian, Cynthia Stoltzmann,  Stoltzmann’s daughter, Sammantha, and Sammantha’s husband, John Allen.

If you want to get a more in-depth overview of Ame’s fucked up family dynamics, I suggest checking out the Wikipedia article on her murder. Honestly, it’s too much of a mess for me to type out and not the point of this article.

Anyway, all of the kids in the home were abused and neglected in some fashion, but Ame reportedly took the brunt of it. She was beaten, forced to crush aluminum cans barefoot, drink hot sauce, and was even once forced to eat dog shit.…

UPPER MARLBORO, MD – A 32-year-old Maryland man has plead guilty to punching his 2-month-old son to death then driving him around in his hearse for two days before burying him in the woods.

According to officials, 32-year-old Antione Petty is one impatient motherfucker. They say he became so upset over his baby’s crying last September that he punched him in the face until he was dead.

With blood streaming from his dead son’s nose and mouth, this clown abortion then tossed the boy’s dead body in the back of his 1998 Hearse.

He left him there for at least 24 hours before he and the boy’s mother, 24-year-old Geneice Petty, drove to a wooded area near Parkdale High School and buried him in a shallow grave.

The boy’s body remained there for a month before family members filed a formal missing person report. After being questioned, the couple lead detectives to the baby’s body.

On Wednesday, Petty pleaded guilty to first-degree child abuse resulting in the death of his son.…

YOUNGSTOWN, OH – A Ohio man has been accused of killing, dismembering and stashing his live-in girlfriends body in a freezer before moving in a new girl to take her place.

Arturo Novoa, 31, asked his landlord if he could store a freezer in his basement since his power was turned off and he “didn’t want his freezer full of meat to spoil.

A few days after, the landlord’s wife, short on ground meat for spaghetti and meatballs, thought it wouldn’t hurt to borrow some meat from Novoa’s fridge and return it later.

She removed 3 small screws that held a padlock and opened the freezer door. After seeing the freezer contained black garbage bags, she immediately closed the freezer and called her husband because she had “a funny feeling about it.”

The husband returned home, opened one of the bags and called police after finding the bag contained a frozen, human foot.

The coroner would later confirm the foot belonged to 28-year-old Shannon Graves, Novoa’s live-in girlfriend who was last seen in February but not reported missing until June 22nd.…

CHINLE, AZ – The 23-year-old woman who killed her 17-month-old daughter by stranding her in the desert will spend the next 20 years in prison.

Last September, Ashley Attson placed her daughter in a stroller, then pushed her into the desert on the Navajo Reservation. Attson left the poor girl there for four days and nights.

During those days  and nights that her daughter died alone in an absolutely horrendous fashion, Attson stayed busy.

“Over the next few days, she met friends for ice cream and posted pictures of herself on Facebook,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona. “When she returned, the child was dead.”

Two days after finding her daughter dead, Attson returned and buried the girl’s body in an animal hole.

What’s worse is that Attson only gained custody of the girl two months before she killed her. Her daughter had been in the care of tribal social services for most of her life after being born with meth in her system.

While handing her a 20 year prison sentence, Judge Campbell called the girl’s death an “intentional, cold-hearted, horrendous killing of an innocent child.”…

WYOMING, MI – Police have arrested a woman after they say she starved her infant to death as he sat strapped in a car seat inside her apartment.

On July 19, 22-year-old Lovily Johnson showed up at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital with the corpse of her six-month-old son, Noah Johnson.

“Upon arrival, Noah was clearly deceased and had been for some time,” Wyoming Detective Robert Meredith wrote in a probable cause affidavit.

Meredith also wrote that Johnson admitted to intentionally depriving Noah of food and left him strapped in a car seat for several days on the upper floor of her apartment with no air conditioning.

Johnson was arrested several hours later and charged with felony murder and first-degree child abuse. Both charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison. She is being held without bond until her probable cause hearing on Aug. 2.

Johnson also as a 2-year-old daughter who has been placed under the supervision of the state.

If an infant starving to death while strapped in a car seat sounds familiar, you may be thinking of a similar case we reported on back in 2008.…

MARION COUNTY, FL – Police have arrested a woman on Saturday after she reportedly used 2-year-old boy as a punching bag in a grocery store parking lot.

Marion County Deputies were called to an Aldi’s Supermarket after several people witnessed 60-year-old Cindy Wood abusing a young boy.

They told deputies that they saw Wood pick up the boy by his hair in the parking lot and then punch him in the face several times with a closed fist.

She then threw the kid in the backseat of her car before driving off. Unfortunately for Wood, one of those witnesses was able to get her license plate number and give it to police.

Officers went to Wood’s home that same day and placed her under arrest on one count of child abuse. She was released from the Marion County Jail the following day on $2,000 bond.

The boy was found to be in good health aside from a small bruise on his cheek. The Department of Children and Families were notified and are investigating.…

TUCKER, GA – Police have arrested a 25-year-old woman after she left her one-year-old daughter in a hot car for six hours while she was getting her hair done.

Police say Dijanelle Fowler arrived at her hair appointment at 10:04AM on June 15, and left her daughter, Skylar, in the car with the air conditioning on.

A short time after entering the salon, her car died and Skylar would slowly cook to death as the temperatures outside reached 90 degrees.

At no time during the six hours Fowler was in the salon did she ever come out and check on her daughter.

Now here’s where things get even worse. After arriving at her car and finding her daughter dead, police believe she hid her daughter’s body with clothes and got a man from inside the salon to help her get her car started.

She then texted Skylar’s godfather and informed him she was going to go to the hospital because she was suffering severe headaches. During this time, Fowler was also Googling “seizure symptoms”.…

MERIDIAN, MS – A man admitted he beat his 3-year-old daughter to death because she failed a math lesson and soiled her pants.

On Friday, police were called by a local hospital to report the suspicious injuries found on a 3-year-old girl in their care.

Bailey Salovich had a swollen abdomen, bruises and lacerations on her legs and buttocks as well as a head wound.

Despite efforts to save her, the toddler would die from her injuries the following day. An official cause of death has not been released, but local police were told by the hospital that the girl had also suffered a brain bleed, a possible detached retina and that her lungs were filled with blood.

When police interviewed the girl’s father, 25-year-old Joshua Salovich, he admitted that “it was all his fault.” According to Salovich, he had been teaching the girl numbers when he got angry at the toddler.

“She apparently did not want to participate and get the correct numbers,” Meridian Police Detective Kevin Boyd said. “He said he would pop her with his hands on her butt and legs when she got a wrong answer… (he said he) backhanded her several times in the stomach because she kept getting it wrong.”

After the girl soiled herself, Salovich removed her clothes and began beating her with a bamboo rod until it broke.…

ORLANDO, FL – Police say a 3-year-old boy was beaten to death with a plastic rod because made the grievous mistake of drinking milk from a jug.

The incident happened early Friday inside a Pine Hills apartment after 3-year-old Xavier Mokarzel-Satchel drank milk from a jug and ate some yogurt.

This angered 58-year-old Callene Barton, who lived in the apartment, so she began yelling at the boy.

Barton’s daughter, 28-year-old Lakesha Lewis, didn’t feel this was an adequate punishment, so she began beating the boy with a plastic rod used to operate blinds. She reportedly beat the poor kid until it broke.

Awakened by the commotion, the boy’s mother ran out, grabbed her son and ran back to her bedroom. Barton wasn’t having it and came after them. She grabbed the boy by his arm and leg and tossed him down the hallway.

That’s when the boy began having seizures.

Realizing they messed up, Barton and Lewis tried reviving him by splashing water on his face. When the boy’s mother tried to call 911, Barton slapped the phone out of her hand.…

WEST MEMPHIS, AR – A 5-year-old boy with development issues died after being left in a van for eight hours at a children’s health clinic.

At 6:40 a.m. Monday, a van from Ascent Children’s Health Services picked up 5-year-old Christopher Gardner Jr. from his family’s home.

Gardner, whose had two heart surgeries and suffers from development issues, has been going to the facility for the last four years.

According to the facility’s website, they provide “quality outpatient and day treatment services to children and their families that are in need of mental health or developmental care.”

After arriving at the facility at 7:15 a.m., two adults on the van signed Gardner and the other children into the Ascent facility.

So imagine everyone’s surprise when Gardner was found dead inside the van eight hours later, still sitting in his booster seat.

Temperatures hit 80 degrees that day, which means the temperature in the van to rise to at least 114 degrees after only 30 minutes of Gardner being in the van.…

MOORHEAD, MN – Police have accused a man of abusing his 2-month-old daughter, including choking her and rubbing hot sauce in her eyes.

Police began investigating after the child’s mother brought the girl to the hospital with dark bruises over both eyes and her shoulder, as well as red marks on her back.

The woman told police that the girl had been in the care of her father, 31-year-old Shawn Foltz, and that he claimed the injuries came from her 3-year-old brother hitting her with a toy gun.

But when interviewed by police, Foltz eventually admitted that he was the one responsible for his daughter’s injuries after becoming frustrated with her crying.

The abuse reportedly occurred from April until the end of May, and included Foltz rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper in her eyes, blocking her airway until she turned blue, snapping her in the face with a towel, spraying her with hot water and throwing fireworks in her face.

Foltz also told police that he would sit at work and daydream about other ways to abuse his daughter.…

The incident happened around 6 p.m. Thursday after Susannah Murray was left alone in her bouncer inside a home as several adults were on the front porch.

When one of the adults went inside the home to check on her, they found she was suffering from bite marks, and the family’s pit bull was nearby with blood around its mouth.

Susannah was rushed to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital where she underwent emergency surgery. Unfortunately, she would die the following morning.

Three pit bulls were removed from the home and taken to the Kent County Animal Shelter where they are under quarantine.
