Kansas City, MO–Until I joined the Dreamin’ Demon, I had no idea how creative people could get when killing children…whether it be their own or someone elses. It’s mind-boggling, really. I guess suffocation is really nothing new, but Lakeesha Brown’s manner of suffocation is.…Continue Reading

In fact, he didn’t wake up until cops slapped handcuffs on him.

I know! How about you drag your drunk ass over to the nearest TA truck stop, knock on the door of the first semi you come across, and offer up some good lovin’ in exchange for a ride? Yeah. And, while you’re at it, how about you drag your 10-year-old son along with you for the ride? And what do ya know, that’s exactly what she did!
Harrisonville, MO–The baby in the cooler was wrapped in a blue blanket…clothed in dark blue pants, a blue turtle neck, white socks, and a stocking cap. There was a stuffed teddy bear and a toy car alongside him in his makeshift coffin. Another cooler, sealed with silicone, held yet another tiny body, this one wrapped in a thin blanket. There is another cooler, buried somewhere in Oklahoma, that holds yet another dead baby. The babies were fathered by their own grandfather, Danial Rinehart.…Continue Reading
Seminole County, FL–Julinia Moreno’s nomination for Mother of the Year has just been ripped to pieces, set on fire, stomped on, and flushed down the toilet. So, don’t be looking for her at the award ceremony.

She placed her 1-year-old son, Jamir Worgs, into his car seat, went to the party, left the car running, and left him alone in the car. He sat out there alone, for hours…while she partied. That’s only the beginning of this twisted tale of tardism.…Continue Reading

Lehigh Acres, FL - Some days, nothing goes right and you just wish you had stayed in bed. It seems Ladwaina Barron had one of those days on Thursday, as she plopped her 7-month-old in her car seat, but didn’t buckle her in, put the car seat in the car, in the FRONT seat and didn’t buckle that in either, and then drove into a school bus. Uh huh, should have stayed in bed.…Continue Reading

Gastonia, NC– It reportedly happened on a fairly regular basis for about 3 months… Jessica Pack, 31, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Jackie Nanney, would shoot at her three children with a BB gun. It wasn’t necessarily a form of punishment, it was mainly for shits and giggles. Hey, asshats, really… get a new hobby.
The children, ages 4, 5, and 7, were apparently shot at for sport. In the bathtub, riding their bikes, playing in the yard, etc. Hey, they were fair game. At one point, Nanney had the 7-year-old trapped behind a door and then shot at him through the crack. The BB’s left welts and bruises and occasionally, the BB’s would draw blood.
When the pair made their first appearance in court on Wednesday, Pack told the court she did shoot the 4-year-old, and that she allowed Nanney to shoot all three of the children. But Nanney says, ‘I don’t shoot no children! I shoot cans and stuff.’
Nanney cried to judge, begging for a lower bail.…Continue Reading

Problem is, Camille didn’t die of natural causes. Her heart muscle was literally torn by blunt force trauma. And Daniel Lamborn has now been arrested and charged with Camille’s death.…Continue Reading
