Jim KarrCHICAGO, IL – Jim Karr, a well known figure in the specialty coffee community, died on Saturday after a commercial coffee machine he was taking down fell on top of him.

The 48-year-old was at an event at Grant Park dismantling the coffee machine when he lost his balance. Karr grabbed the machine to prevent from falling and the machine fell on top of his head and body, said police.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later from multiple crushing injuries to his head and chest. His death was ruled an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.

From what I can gather, Karr was kind of a big deal within the coffee community. He was a technician who installed, repaired and modified coffee brewing equipment, and considered by some as the best in the country. His company, SteamVolt, was dedicated to “advancing the mechanics of craft coffee.”

“In terms of the work Jim did, he was one of the very few in the country that was known as being a top expert at what he did,” said Nicholas Cho, of Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters.…

Chance WernerBARTOW COUNTY, GA – Authorities say 18-year-old Chance Werner drowned while playing a shopping cart game at Lake Allatoona.

A spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources says that Werner and some friends were playing a game at Holiday Harbor Marina Saturday night that involved being pushed off a dock while riding inside a shopping cart.

Normally, the cart is tied to a pole so the rider would “pop” out of the cart as it was forcefully pushed off the dock and the person would simply swim back to the dock. But when Werner took his turn, he opted to have the cart tied to his belt loop instead.

Sadly, things didn’t go quite as planned. The weight of the cart ended up pulling the teen 30 feet below the surface of the lake and he was unable to break free. I did a little checking, and it turns out that an average shopping cart weighs around 30 pounds.

Rescue teams wouldn’t recover Werner’s body until three hours later. When found, he was still tied to the cart.…

Taylor KellyHONEA PATH, SC – Police in South Carolina have arrested 18-year-old Taylor Kelly after they say she killed a man while testing out the effectiveness of a bulletproof vest.

You are reading this here, so you’ve probably guessed things didn’t work out too well.

Anderson County deputies received a call at 2:41 a.m. Wednesday morning from a home where eight to 10 friends had gathered. When they arrived on the scene, they found 26-year-old Blake Wardell lying in the garage with a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Police would learn that the shooting was no accident, and that Wardell was a willing participant. According to police, the people hanging out in the home came up with a great way to test the effectiveness of an old flak jacket.

Instead of putting the vest against a tree or something, Wardell decided to put it on and have Kelly fire a gun at him. Unfortunately for everyone involved, aside from the overall gene pool, Darwinism ensured the bullet passed through a seam in the vest and directly into Wardell’s chest.…

Jacqueline StackhouseELIMSPORT, PA – A man hosted a get-together at his cabin Friday night slept in his truck only to find the bodies the next morning when he woke up.

State police said that the deceased, Nathan Reese, 30; Jacqueline Stackhouse, 23; Austin Cousins, 3, Stackhouse’s son; Cadee Hawkins, 4; and Nariah Hawkins, 8, all had lethal amounts of carbon monoxide in their systems.

The source of the carbon monoxide came from an improperly ventialted propane heater located inside the 10-foot by 16-foot cabin.

The mother of the two girls left the cabin with another woman at around 5 a.m. that morning. Although alcohol was found inside the cabin, police say there is no evidence to support criminal charges against the mother.

Relatives of the victims watched near the cabin as authorities investigated, including the mother of the two girls. “It was a hysterical scene, especially for the parents of some of the victims,” State Police Capt. David Young.

Fir Chief Brett Ulrich said he wants to let people know how to use propane tanks properly to prevent another tragedy.…

bad fortune cookieHOUSTON, TX – We now have another horrific way to die at work to add to our growing list: falling into the dough mixing machine at a fortune cookie factory.

Investigators say that on Sunday, an employee at the Wonton Food Company found a co-worker, 26-year-old Oscar Barrera, inside an industrial dough mixer.

The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences would later state the cause of Barrera’s death was multiple blunt force injuries. Police do not believe foul play was involved and have ruled the death an accident.

Over the last 10 years, we have reported on the horrendous workplace deaths of many people who, like most of us, were just working for the weekend. But Barrera may have been one of the lucky ones.

Getting beat to death inside an industrial dough mixer seems a lot better than being pulled into an asphalt grinder, or being cooked to death in an industrial tuna steamer, or dying from an exploding beer keg, or falling into a wood chipper, or suffocating in a manure pit, or being crushed in an industrial paper rolling machine, or cooking to death in an industrial dryer, or suffocating in a pile of pinto beans, or dying in a vat of boiling chocolate, or falling into an industrial meat grinder.…

Courtney SandfordHIGH POINT, NC — Investigators say seconds before 32-year-old Courtney Sanford died in a head-on collision with a truck, she was posting on Facebook.

The collision happened Thursday morning on Business 85 when Sanford crossed the center median and hit a large commercial truck driven by 73-year-old John Wallace Thompson. The impact caused the truck to go off the road and hit a tree, while Sanford’s vehicle went off the road and caught fire. Thompson was not injured.

Later that day, investigators were contacted by Sanford’s friends and family who told them Sanford had been posting on Facebook right around the time of the crash. Turns out Sanford’s last post to Facebook was right before the accident and was about liking Pharrell’s hit song “Happy”.

“The Facebook text happened at 8:33 a.m. We got the call on the wreck at 8:34 a.m.,” said Lt. Chris Weisner, with the High Point Police Department. Investigators say the Facebook post read: “The happy song makes me HAPPY.” Her posting activity also revealed Sanford had been posting selfies as she drove down the road.…

rotten eggKnoxville, TN – A woman having an Easter egg hunt in her backyard with her 4-year-old discovered the decomposing corpse of a homeless man under her deck.

Tara Hanouskova said she’d noticed a foul odor in her backyard for several days but had been unable to locate the source. When a man came to cut her grass, she asked if he could find the source but he was unable to as well.

It wasn’t until Wednesday evening, during an Easter egg hunt with her son that Hanouskova was able topinpoint the source of the bad smell. While hunting for eggs, she saw a pair of tennis shoes under her deck.

The tennis shoes were attached to the decomposing body of 29-year-old Joshua Grubb, a homeless man who apparently crawled up under her deck and died.

Officials believe Grubb died under the deck two weeks ago of natural causes, but they are still waiting on autopsy results. Police believe Grubb’s body went unnoticed for so long because Hanouskova’s deck is large, and the area where Grubb was found is dark and narrow.…

Keane Grace Wallis-BennettEdinburgh – On Tuesday, 12-year-old Keane Wallis-Bennett was killed when an internal wall inside the gym at Liberton High School collapsed on top of her.

Keane suffered major upper-body injuries when a wall next to the showers in the gym collapsed on top of her as she changed for PE. Witnesses stated she screamed that she could hear something falling, but she was unable to get out of the way.

Staff and emergency services were unable to save her and Keane was pronounced dead at the scene. Police and health and safety officials have began investigating the circumstances surrounding Keane’s death and how the wall, built as a partition, collapsed.

The school had been surveyed by Edinburgh City Council and found to need ‘significant’ work. The local authorities did not have the money needed to fix all the problems found with all of their schools at once, so they adopted a “prioritization” scheme. This led to Liberton High being placed behind other schools needing work.

The wall that collapsed was not identified as a problem when the school was surveyed, but students said the wall had been “wobbly” for months and that they’d warned teachers about it.…

Jenna BettiMartinez, CA – I can not imagine what the friends and family of 14-year-old Jenna Betti are going through today after the teen was struck and killed by a train while trying to retrieve a cell phone she’d dropped on the tracks.

According to the girl’s mother, Jenna had been sitting on the tracks with her boyfriend Sunday afternoon when a train approached. Her boyfriend jumped off on one side of the tracks, Jenna on the other.

‘Today my beautiful daughter kissed us goodbye. She was tragically killed today by a train,” Jenna’s mother wrote on Facebook. “She was sitting on the train tracks with her boyfriend… Why they made such a horrible decision we’ll never know.”

Jenna’s second horrible decision was apparently going back to retrieve her cell phone she’d dropped when she jumped off the tracks. “She didn’t judge the approach, and the train creates a vacuum, we were told, and it sucks you in,” her mother posted. Jenna was killed after being struck by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway freight train.…

Andrew NorrisWilloughby Hills, OH – Last Thursday, 19-year-old Andrew Norris was found dead and frozen inside his pickup truck parked in his parents’ driveway.

Norris was last seen by his parents on Tuesday, but they thought he was staying with a friend. On Thursday afternoon, his stepmother found him slumped over in the front seat of his pickup truck parked in the driveway. According to reports, it was hard to see him inside the truck from the outside.

Police are waiting on autopsy results to find out exactly how Norris died and how long he may been in the truck. There was no evidence of foul play and no signs of drugs or alcohol being involved. His family said Norris frequently spent long periods of time inside the truck using his cell phone to talk with friends.

Ohio is one of many states experiencing freezing temperatures lately and on the day he was found, temperatures in the area had dropped in the low zero degrees. I guess it’s possible he went to the truck to use his phone and wait for his friend to get him, and succumbed to the cold.…

QueefCOWANSVILLE, PA – Every now and then a story comes along with enough wtf that there is little I need to do but report the facts. This story about a teen who “expelled wind from the vulva during coitus” inside a school bus is one of those stories. Enjoy!

An 18-year-old girl was cited for harassment after she allegedly elbowed a 13-year-old boy in the nuts inside a Pennsylvania school bus. She was angry with the boy because he laughed at her for queefing while she had sex with another student at the back of the bus.

According to Trooper Jordan’s original report:

“Both the victim and the accused were riding school bus. The accused expelled wind from the vulva during coitus while at the back of the bus. The victim began to laugh and chuckled at the accused for her actions. The accused approached the victim and elbowed him in the testicles. Accused was cited for harassment.”

Trooper Jordan said that while his original report was accurate, his superiors deemed it a bit too detailed and had him modify it.…

Jessica BurlewGLENDALE, AZ – Police have accused 16-year-old Jessica Burlew of killing her 43-year-old boyfriend during some kinky foreplay that included strangulation.

According to Burlew, she and Jason Ash liked to engage in strangulation and cutting during sex, but she took things a little too far last Saturday. Everything was going ok until she wrapped some electrical wire around Ash’s neck and choked him for a tad too long, killing the guy.

At first Burlew though Ash had simply passed out, so she tried to get him to wake up by cutting him with a razor. When that didn’t work, she did the next best thing and used the razor to start cutting herself. Eventually Burlew realized that also wasn’t working, and called her mother to inform her Ash was dead.

When her mother arrived at the apartment, she found Ash dead on the bed with a cord around his neck. He was fully clothed but his pants were unbuttoned. Able to handle stressful situations better than her daughter, she called 911 and tried performing CPR instead of conducting an interpretive dance and punching Ash in the crotch.…

Shortly after midnight, 26-year-old Ken Hoang of dropped his cell phone as he and two friends walked along Water Street near McClurg Court. The phone ended up in the partially frozen Chicago River and Hoang jumped a fence in an attempt to retrieve it.

hope chestFranklin, MA – A brother and sister, both under 10-years-old, have died after trapping themselves inside a hope chest while playing inside their home.

Investigators believe Lexi, 8, and Sean Munroe, 7, climbed into the chest on their own and didn’t realize that it could only be opened from the outside. Although other family members were inside the home at the time, including three older siblings, the chest was located in a room where a television was on.

“Several family members were home at the time of the incident,” said David Traub, a spokesman for the Norfolk District Attorney’s office. “The hope chest was in relatively close proximity to a television that was apparently on with a substantial volume at the time.”

By time the boy and girl were found inside the chest, they were unconscious. Both were rushed to the hospital but would later be pronounced dead. Neighbors comforted the victims’ three siblings after the bodies were found. “They were in bad shape,” a neighbor told reporters.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the deaths, but believe this is just a tragic accident.…

Aura GarciaBOSTON, MA – A 43-year-old mother of two was crushed to death on New Year’s Eve as she walked across a Boston drawbridge.

Aura Garcia was on her way to a doctor’s appointment as she walked across the Meridian Street bridge, a drawbridge that crosses over the Chelsea River, when it began to rise to let a boat pass underneath. According to police spokesman David Estrada, Garcia “was probably halfway across the bridge when it started to open. She was in a blind spot where (the operator) could not see her.”

Another pedestrian told investigators that before the bridge began to rise she heard a loud foghorn and saw the bridge’s blinking lights before hearing Garcia screaming over and over again. The bridge operator heard her screams as well, and immediately began lowering the bridge back in place.

What the operator didn’t know was that Garcia’s lower body had slipped through the gap made at the lower hinge of the bridge, and she was holding on to a handrail to keep from falling into the river below.

Darrin Spivey, 35, and his 15-year-old son  Dillon SanchezTAMPA, FL – A father and his teenage son drowned on Christmas day while doing some cave diving with some new diving gear they had received as presents.

Deputies got a call from 35-year-old Darrin Spivey’s fiancee at around 3 p.m. after he and his 15-year-old son, Dillon Sanchez, did not return home from a cave dive as scheduled.

Spivey and his son had went out to the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Refuge earlier that morning to test out some new diving equipment inside an underwater cave known as the Eagle’s Nest Sink – an underwater cave that can reach depths of 300-feet.

She ended up driving out to the location and called police when she found Spivey’s car still in the parking lot but could find no sign of the pair, and Spivey would not answer his cell phone. A hunter told police he’d seen the pair suiting up to dive at around 11 a.m., but did not see them at anytime afterwards.

Divers went into the cave to search for the father and son,  and found their bodies in the main cavern area.…

Anthony Gambale and Gabriella KatanovBrooklyn, NY – A teenage couple suffered serious burns after they attempted to make a potent form of marijuana but only ended up blowing themselves up inside a garage.

Anthony Gambale, 19, and Gabriella Katanov, 17, were making their stash 80 percent stronger by creating what is called “ear wax,” “dabs,” “honey oil,” or “butter.” The names are derived from the final product’s yellowish color and gooey consistency. 

There are many how-to videos available online showing people how they can turn their herb into ear wax if you want to try it yourself, but one of the main steps includes soaking your marijuana in butane.

This couple had already finished that step, using a 30-gallon tub to cover some cannabis, and were in the process of evaporating the gas when one of the morons decided that was the perfect time to light up a cigarette.

The resulting explosion woke up the neighbors, who reported hearing the couple screaming for help from inside the burning garage. Gambale and Katanov were both transported to Staten Island University Hospital in serious condition, suffering from second- and third-degree burns.…
