Carter told police that he went out drinking on Father’s Day with friends and went home alone at 7 a.m. When he woke up on Monday at 4 p.m, he asked his mother and aunt if they had seen Leasia and they told him they thought she was with her older sister.
Carter left the house and walked up the street where he had parked his car and found Leasia unresponsive in the backseat, strapped in her car seat.
“He’s sitting there like, ‘Somebody’s dead, somebody’s dead,’ and we couldn’t make out what he was saying, but we know he was saying, ‘Somebody was dead,'” witness Bella Osbourne said.
Leasia was rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Investigators said that Leasia had been left in the car with the windows up for 16 hours, most of it during sunlight hours when the temperature neared 90 degrees.…
EL PASO, TX – Antonio Huerta, 62, and his wife Sandra Huerta, 55, were arrested in April for the sexual abuse of two foster children. Now it is being revealed the couple may have brought in over one-and-a-half million dollars of state funds for the care of something like 36 children over 14 years.
Wait. Decent money can be made kiddy diddling? Uh, I’m asking for a friend. Well, not really a friend. Someone I know through…Craigslist? Or was it Snapchat? Yes. That’s it. It probably was Snapchat.
Between 2005 to 2015, 16 complaints alleging abuse and neglect were filed against the Huertas. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services dismissed 14 of them due to lack of evidence (most recently this past January); a review of the information available online suggests the remaining two were not related to the arrest of the couple.
Instead, it looks like the two were arrested after certain allegations were presented to police last September about events said to have occurred between 2000 and 2002.…
AUSTIN, TX – Alvaro Benitez and Araceli Mata-Ortiz are facing felony child endangerment charges after police pulled over a vehicle for reported reckless driving to discover one set of drunk parents, a 13-year-old in the driver’s seat, and a 7-year-old girl who was not driving and apparently wasn’t drunk.
At some point after 11:00 p.m. Friday, police were called about a Chevy pickup that was running red lights, weaving back and forth, and driving 25-30 MPH below the posted 70 MPH limit on I-35. Another motorist claimed that the silver truck had almost caused at least three collisions.
According to authorities, the young driver reported that the family had been at Club Vongos, where she observed her parents were too inebriated to drive and suggested that she drive, since she felt that would be the safer option.
As drunk people tend to do, the girl’s parents made a stupid decision and later said something stupid about that decision: as to the former, the parents said they thought it was smart for them not to drive while intoxicated and thus elected to have their 13-year-old daughter (who had little experience operating a vehicle) take the wheel for the 30-something-minute drive home to Georgetown.…
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Dear 23-year-old Kiara Officer: You’ve been arrested for child neglect after allegedly leaving your five-year-old daughter and two-year-old son alone at home.
Yes, alone. No adult supervision. For nine hours. In conditions I wouldn’t leave a dog in. (Even a dog I disliked. Hell, even a dog who attacked me and tore my nose off.) If the allegations against you are true, Kiara, then you are a cunt of the first order. An extremely selfish cunt, as it turns out.
Dear Kiara: It seems that officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were sent to your residence at about 2:40 a.m. on June 17th for a child welfare check. Said officers knocked on the door, after which a five-year-old girl came to the window and told them she was alone with her two-year-old brother.
Dear Kiara: The five-year-old girl (presumably your daughter) let the officers into the residence, at which point they observed indications of marijuana use and a disgustingly filthy home: trash, food bags, dirty dishes, mold on the kitchen walls, and an entryway covered with bugs, both dead and alive.…
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Cody Feran-Baum, 17, has been arrested after police say he stomped his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter to death.
A neighbor said Feran-Baum ran to their house with Sophia O’Neill in his arms asking to use their phone. The neighbor said Sophia’s head “just bounced back and forth” and her eyes were unfocused. Sophia was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she was resuscitated twice before dying.
The medical examiner would find that Sophia died from multiple injuries, including a torn liver, kidney and pancreas, cuts to the inside of her stomach, a collapsed lung and eight broken ribs.
Sophia’s mother told police that her boyfriend of about a year, Feran-Baum, had watched Sophia the day before and that when she returned home she found Sophia had a fever and complained of pain whenever she was picked up or touched. Unaware her daughter was suffering from multiple organ failure, she thought she was just sick and put her in bed for the night.
When Feran-Baum was interviewed and presented with evidence that someone had beat the ever-living shit out of Sophia, the teen came clean and admitted he was responsible. …
Henrico County, VA — This is Laquanda Newby. She is a slow learner. This woman showed up at the courthouse to answer to accusations of leaving her child in a hot car last month, and left her children sitting in the car in the parking lot.
Just last month, the 25-year-old mother was accused of leaving her children, ages six and one, in the car while she shopped at Sam’s Club. Because the responding officer did not actually witness the alleged crime, a warrant was sworn and Newby was informed that she must turn herself in at some point.
Newby turned herself in Monday. And left her kids sitting in the car. Again. At the courthouse.
It is unknown exactly how long the children were in the car, but surveillance video apparently shows it had been for more than an hour. The temperature hit 90 that day, and the windows were rolled up, but police say the kids seemed to be ok — just sweaty and hot. They were hydrated, fed, and released to their father.…
Investigators were called to St. Francis Hospital last Wednesday after receiving a report about an accidental shooting. Upon making contact with Adam Hirtle, however, they learned the horrible truth — it wasn’t an accident.*dundunduuuun*
Hirtle apparently informed the responding officers that he had intentionally shot himself in the foot. He told police he walked into his garage that evening and, for whatever reason, removed his boot and shot it with a .22. He then returned the boot to his foot and pulled the trigger again, injuring himself. Kinda. I mean, it was a .22.
He’s been arrested on suspicion of a prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment and child abuse. The last charge had me scratching my head for a minute — I’m assuming there were young ‘ens somewhere in the vicinity.
Stupid may not hurt a lot, but I’m guessing it stings a little….…
ID – Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office arrested 23-year-old Shariah Whitney after she crashed a car containing herself, her 5-year-old daughter, and a 15-year-old family friend, thus ending an alleged incident of drunken street racing.
As KXLY reports, witnesses reported two vehicles driving side-by-side 70 to 80 miles an hour down a residential road Sunday night.
The so-called street race was terminated when Whitney’s car went off the road, ran over a stop sign, hit the parked car belonging to Rex Hyatt’s in-laws, and came to rest on the lawn of Hyatt’s home.
All the makings of senseless tragedy right here: not just drunken driving but high-speed drunken driving and a car crash. Color me SMH in wonder, because no one was injured.
Whitney’s husband Nathan is disputing the version of events offered by law enforcement, however, claiming that the crash was caused not by street racing but by Shariah attempting to pass a car on a road unfamiliar to her. He further indicated that his wife didn’t have more than two drinks on Sunday.…
The video has everything I look for: white trash, women fighting, Walmart shoppers, yoga pants, tattoos, motorized scooters, profanity, violence, child endangerment, and a little boy pouring chemicals in the face of a pinned-down adult.
The incident was captured on video last Thursday by a fellow shopper who was recording an argument between a woman in a motorized scooter and a store employee over carts in the aisle.
When a woman with her 6-year-old son decided to defend the Walmart employee, the two women got into an argument that turned physical when the woman in the motorized scooter suddenly jumped up and knocked the other woman into the shampoo aisle.
With shampoos falling off the shelves and spilling on to the floor, the two women begin scrapping and, at one point, the woman with the child begins screaming “Johnny, punch her in her fucking face!…
SILVER SPRING SHORES, FL – Tayvon Alexander and his girlfriend have been arrested after a 3-year-old boy was found with possible rib and facial fractures, as well as severe bruising to his face and torso.
With his arrest on Sunday in Marion County for charges of aggravated child abuse after his alleged treatment of a three-year-old child, I’m thinking 23-year-old Tayon L. Alexander has used up his 15 minutes of fame. (And God help us all: Florida? AGAIN?)
Based on Alexander’s many Facebook selfies and the subsequently unsubstantiated report that “Well loox like i got the part az a model forreal. they payin 4 the flight up 2 new york and i can make a retainer of $10,000 a month. loox like im gonna b livin it the fukk up now!!!!!!”(Translation: “Well, it looks like I got the part as a model. They’re paying for the flight up to New York, and I can make a retainer of $10,000 a month. Looks like I’m going to be living a nice lifestyle!”), I’m guessing Alexander believes his supposed 5’6″ 138-pound physique alone (c’mon, we have to rule out his writing abilities, don’t we?) is going to shoot him into the Kardashian-ist stratosphere.…
According to reports, the victim went to police this month to report what had happened to her. She said that she got pregnant after being raped raped by a family member in August 2012. She did not report the crime at the time because she was ’embarrassed’.
Five months later her family could see that she was pregnant. They feared other children in the home would be removed if CPS investigated the details surrounding the girl’s pregnancy, so they decided to hide the crime.
Plan A involved 45-year-old Sharon Jones reportedly giving the girl multiple doses of birth control pills, emergency contraception pills and cinnamon tablets. When none of these methods killed the baby, the family went to Plan B; beat the baby out of her.
The girl, along with a witness who went to the police station with her, told police that in the living room of Jones’ house, 25-year-old Cecilia McDonald held her arms down while Lonnell McDonald kicked and bounced up and down on her stomach.…
AUBURN, ME – Three decades ago, 66-year-old John Lane was convicted of killing his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter by cooking her in an oven. Now a federal judge says that Lane should seek a new trial.
On the night of October 27, 1984, John Lane, then 37, was living with 30-year-old Cynthia Palmer and Palmer’s two daughters. 4-year-old Angela Palmer and 5-year-old Sarah.
That night, Lane beat and tortured Angela before forcing her into an oven and wedged a chair against the door so she could not get out. Lane then turned the heat up as high as it could go as Angela screamed, “Let me out, Daddy, let me out!”
It was the smell and smoke of Angela’s cooked body that eventually led police to the apartment and discover Angela’s smoldering body after tracing the source of the smoke and opening the oven.
Lane would end up charged with murder while Angela’s mother would be charged with manslaughter. She would later be acquitted because, according to her, she had overdosed the night of Angela’s murder and was not aware of what had happened.…
Police responded to a 911 call from the little girl’s uncle. When they arrived they found the dead body of the child covered in bruises and weighing only 15lbs.
A thorough examination of the girl’s body revealed cuts and bruises all over her body in various stages of healing, a 1-inch laceration to her head that exposed her skull, a broken knee and evidence that she had been sexually assaulted.
The parents both deny causing the injuries, although Velazco does admit to punishing her with a belt but only using “measured strength” as to not knock down the child.
During an interview with Cruz, who only speaks Spanish, he denied any knowledge about Alexandra’s other injuries telling investigators to, “ask his wife” and “not knowing the truth” about how they happened. Cruz did admit that the daughter’s weight loss was concerning and started after she had a fall in the tub. …
ATHENS, PA – Police have charged Anthony Rockwell with two felony counts after he allegedly sexually assaulted two boys, ages 5 and 6, inside a church restroom and stuck a pill in each of their anuses.
According to reports, Rockwell approached three children playing at the His Majesty Church playground. Two women were outside the church at the time, painting the church exterior.
Although one of the women knew Rockwell from church, the other became concerned when she noticed Rockwell and the children were missing. When she went inside the church to look for them, she found that she was unable to open the restroom door.
Rockwell walked out when she was able to enter, and she saw one boy crying and another bent over naked. Her son told her that Rockwell had hurt him and the other boy. During her examination of the boys, she found a white pill in each of their asses and removed them.
Police were called and the two boys were taken to the hospital for treatment.…
MT MORRIS, MI — Police have arrested 30-year-old Michael Porter after authorities claim he waterboarded his girlfriend’s 5-year-old son.
Police were notified after school officials noticed the boy acting differently. When questioned, he told them of the torture technique Porter allegedly employed on him, and the abuse Porter reportedly doled out on his 12-year-old brother.
When questioned by detectives, Porter admitted that on May 12 he’d punished the boy because he’d ripped his backpack. He decided to waterboard him after seeing it performed in a movie.
According to Mt. Morris Police Chief Keith Becker. Porter “tied the 5-year-old’s hands up with a belt down by his sides, put a garment over his head down below his nose, laid him on a footstool on his back and poured water over his throat, face and mouth.”
Detectives also learned Porter allegedly tortured the boy’s 12-year-old brother by tying the older boy’s arms, forcing him to his knees and prodding him in the chest and throat with a knife. The incident lasted for roughly three hours, Becker said.…
According to police, they were called to a local hospital after the girl was brought in with severe burns on both her hands and numerous marks all over her body.
The girl told detectives that Clofer was the person responsible, claiming the woman held her hands over the open flame of a gas stove as punishment for eating a snack without permission.
She also told detectives that the marks on her body came from Clofer beating her with a belt and a metal clothes hanger.
According to the girl, whose relationship to Clofer has not been released, she was not allowed to eat for days, and was handcuffed and tied to the legs of a bed whenever Clofer slept or went to work.
Clofer arrested and charged with 2nd degree cruelty to a juvenile, and false imprisonment. She is currently in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on $700,00 bond.…
WHITE CLOUD, MI – Matthew Bradley, 27, has been arrested for concealing the death of his 4-month-old daughter after police found her body hidden in her grandmother’s basement.
The baby, Natallya Rich, was last seen alive Saturday with Bradley when he was to be caring for her while her mother, Brittany Rich, worked. When Rich came home, he told her the baby was sleeping.
He then said Natallya was at a babysitter’s house before claiming she was in the care of his sister, Stephanie Wert. Bradley assured Rich by having his sister cover for him and say that Natallya was with her.
Bradley’s sister claims that he came to her on Tuesday asking her to say she had her because he and Rich were fighting. Wert said that nothing seemed out of the norm with Bradley other than he was a little upset about his relationship issues.
Four days after Natallya went missing, police took Bradley and Rich in for questioning and Bradley finally revealed the location of Natallya – she was dead in her car seat, hidden in a crawlspace in his mother’s basement.…
DEMOTTE, IN – Alicia Keir has admitted to giving birth to a baby girl on a Carnival cruise then leaving the baby to die underneath her bed.
According to reports, the then 20-year-old woman boarded a Caribbean cruise ship in 2011 to celebrate her friend’s birthday. Unbeknownst to anyone but Keir, she was pregnant.
On the second day of the cruise, Keir gave birth to a baby girl by herself in her stateroom. She claims the full term baby was not moving or making a sound when she wrapped the baby in a towel and placed her underneath the bed.
It wasn’t until the next day, at the port of St. Maarten, that a cleaning crew found the baby dead underneath the bed. A doctor would later determine that the infant was born without any defects or diseases, and had died from exposure and lack of care.
By this time, Keir had already boarded a plane back home. I’m not sure why it has taken so long for this case to reach its conclusion, but I am pretty sure it had a lot to do with where the crime was committed.…
