Police were called to an apartment complex Wednesday morning on a report of a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they found the dead body of 10-year-old Victoria MArtens.
According to police, the girl’s mother, 35-year-old Michelle Martens; Martens’ boyfriend, 31-year-old Fabian Gonzales; and 31-year-old Jessica Kelley, injected the girl with meth so they could sexually assault her.
According to the criminal complaint (WARNING: Very graphic), Gonzales drugged the girl so he could have sex with her. After Gonzalez choked the girl, Kelley held her hand over Victoria’s mouth and stabbed her in the stomach.
Once she was dead, the three tried to dispose of Victoria’s body by dismembering it and setting it on fire. When police arrived at the apartment, one officer found the girl’s body in a bathtub, rolled up in a blanket that had been set on fire.…
Alayna Ertl was reported missing Saturday morning when her mother woke up to find her gone. Also missing was Anderson, who had stayed the night at the family’s home, and a truck belonging to Ertl’s father.
“[Anderson] is a family friend, co-worker of the victim’s father, and was staying the night up in Watkins last night,” Meeker County Sheriff Brian Cruze said. “He had previously been to that residence and spent a night here and there, so he’s not a stranger and not new to the residence.”
Four hours after authorities issued a statewide Amber Alert, Anderson’s father called authorities to tell them his son had called earlier that day and asked to use the family’s cabin 80 miles away.
When police went to investigate, they found the truck parked outside the cabin. Inside they would find a shotgun and a bloody suicide note, but no sign of Anderson or Alayna.…

On Saturday, Morris was babysitting 4-month-old Emersyn Morris while his girlfriend, Jenny Anderson, was at work.
Anderson tried to contact Morris multiple times throughout the day but no one would hear from Morris until almost 5 pm when he called Anderson and his mother.
Morris told them both that he was going to jail because he had done something to the baby. They both told him to call 911.
When paramedics arrived at the home, Emersyn was unconscious and Morris was covered in blood and had a swollen hand. Emersyn was rushed to the hospital where she died from blunt force trauma.
Morris told police that he had been watching television when his daughter started making noises. He said he took the girl out of her swing, carried her into her bedroom and placed her on a changing table.
When Emersyn continued making noises, he attempted to quiet her by punching her approximately 15 times in the face and 7 times in the chest with a closed fist. …
The couple called 911 on August 1 to report Kamonie was making a “loud gurgling noise” and that when they checked on her they found her unresponsive. The girl’s mother, Shavone Whitehead, performed CPR on her daughter until paramedics arrived.
Kamonie was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston Hospital, where doctors would find the baby suffering from injuries to her legs, buttocks, chin and arms, multiple rib fractures and a possible skull fracture.
Sadly, after being on life support for the last two weeks, Kamonie was pronounced dead Saturday night.
When police questioned Whitehead about the girl’s injuries, she initially denied she was responsible, but later admitted the couple would beat her baby with a belt to punish her.
Just how bad could this baby have been? With the injuries she suffered its like she routinely set the house on fire, stole the family car for drug-fueled parties in downtown Atlanta, and was dealing crack to the neighbors from her crib.…
Steele has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child after she went to a cellphone store to have her phone repaired, leaving her 6 and 3-year-old son alone inside her minivan with their 13-day-old sister.
When the baby girl started crying, her older brother killed her by beating the ever-living crap out of her. But before I get into those details, let’s discuss the events that lead up to them. Besides, I’m sure some of you have already asked yourselves why a 62-year-old woman has a newborn.
Back in 2009, Steele and her late husband, Philip, was featured on the reality show I’m Pregnant and 55 Years Old. She explained that she worked as a broker, putting in 60-80 hours a week, when she met her husband in her 40s.
The couple tried for 12 years to conceive a child via vitro fertilization, and Steele finally became pregnant in 2009 at the age of 55.…
According to reports, 35-year-old Travis Martin called police at about 1:16 a.m. Sunday to let them know that he was shot at by some young boys in an SUV.
Martin, who is homeless, said he did not want to press charges and just wanted police to know what happened. However, Martin called back to say the SUV had returned and the kids had shot at him again while yelling vulgarities.
When an officer arrived at the location, Martin flagged them down and pointed out the SUV. The officer stopped the SUV, driven by 36-year-old Amina El-Zayat, and had her and her three juvenile sons get out of the vehicle.
Inside the vehicle the officer would find two air soft rifles, both replicas of M4 assault rifles, and one of which was fully automatic that could fire 15 pellets at a time.…
According to police, at around 2:30 in the morning, a concerned citizen notified them that there was a vehicle stopped in the road with someone passed out inside.
Police would find 35-year-old Melissa Tomesh passed out in her truck, facing the wrong way on the road. Ever the multitasker, Tomesh was breastfeeding her daughter at the same time.
“When the officers arrived they had to wake up the driver and after talking to her, they realized she was under the influence of something, possible drugs, or a combination of different medications,” said officer Lisa Holland.
Tomesh was taken into custody and is facing a list of charges, including DUI and child endangerment for transmitting drugs to her toddler through her breast milk. Her child was placed with relatives but CPS has been notified of the incident.
“We have contacted child protective custody. We have a detective working with them on the case to make arrangements for a safer environment for the child to be in,” Holland said.…
According to reports, 25-year-old Sean Flowers was at a family party on Saturday when he got into an argument with his son’s mother.
Flowers grabbed his son and left the apartment, wading into a nearby storm water pond while the boy’s mother and family pleaded with him to stop.
Instead, Flowers sat down in the water up to his chest while holding his son beneath the surface.
“It was the most evil thing I’ve ever seen,” said a witness who watched the scene unfold from his window. “That baby cried all the way out into the water, then the crying stopped.”
Another witness followed Flowers into the pond in an unsuccessful attempt to get the baby.
“I saw a baby floating in the water. I grabbed it. I tried to swim away with it. He lunged at me and took the baby again and swam farther, deeper,” the witness said.…

According to the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived to find the boy screaming and crying while attempting to get back into his home. The boy was dirty, barefoot and wearing only a diaper and a T-shirt.
The officers found that the house was unlocked and went inside to see if there were any adults home. No one was home, but they did find a phone number for Brent Daley.
Police called Brent to tell him they were at his home with his toddler and, according to Sheriff Paul Babeu, Brent’s response was “Whatever” before hanging up.
A little while later Brianna and Brent arrived at the home and allegedly admitted they left their son at home so they could go play Pokemon Go in nearby neighborhoods.…
In June 2002, Wright removed the racks out of an oven, turned it to broil and waited for it to heat up. She then placed her 14-month-old daughter, Ashley Smith, head first into the oven.
Ashley was rescued by her father who heard her screams and found her inside the oven. While Smith was only in the oven for a short amount of time, she suffered third-degree burns to over 30 percent of her body.
Despite claiming voices told her to put her daughter in the oven, Wright would plead guilty to attempted murder, and be sentenced to 25 years in prison. On Tuesday, after having serving 13 years and 9 months of her sentence, Wright stood before the parole board in hopes of an early release.
Smith was also there to ask the board that her mother remain in prison.…
Bert Franklin, 35, lived in a $1.3 million home with his wife and four children. When the successful dentist was not spending time with his family or work, he spent it with his mistress of two years and her 19-month-old son, Lincoln Von Henry Lewis.
Neither his girlfriend or his wife knew of each other and, according to investigators, Franklin had been living a double life. That is until July 17. On that day, Franklin was at his girlfriend’s house in an upstairs room with Lewis.
The boy’s mother, Roxanne Lewis-Randall, said she was downstairs when she heard a loud “thud” that Franklin explained was just him throwing a ball to a puppy. The next morning, Lewis-Randall went to check on her son and found him unconscious.
The boy was rushed to the hospital where doctors would find the boy’s head had pinpoints of blood in the skin near the right rear of his skull, hemorrhaging in both eyes and severe swelling and trauma to his brain.…
CINCINNATI, OH – A judge has sentenced April Corcoran to 51-years-to-life in prison for letting her drug dealer have sex with her 11-year-old daughter in exchange for heroin, calling it one of the worst cases she’s ever seen.
In June, Corcoran pleaded guilty to complicity to rape, trafficking in persons and corrupting another with drugs.
Corcoran admitted that on four separate occasions in 2014, she gave her daughter to 42-year-old Shandell Willingham for sex in exchange for heroin.
The little girl was sodomized, raped, forced to perform oral sex and frequently videotaped by Willingham. Corcoran would reward her daughter by forcing her to take small doses of heroin that caused her to vomit each time.
“I made selfish, horrible choices that will affect her for the rest of her life,” Corcoran said in court before she was sentenced. “I am consumed by guilt and shame every day.”
Judge Ghiz said she was full of shit, pointing out that Corcoran has yet to offer any kind of apology to her daughter.…
GLOUCESTER, NJ – Here’s an infuriating story to start off your week. Prosecutors allege 22-year-old Michael Disporto sexually assaulted his new girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter before she died of blunt force trauma to the head. Be warned, the following details are pretty horrific.
According to Christine Shah of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office, 26-year-old Amber Bobo picked up her 2-year-old daughter, Ariana, from her father’s home Saturday evening and went home.
Disporto, her boyfriend of two weeks, took Ariana to the park to “get to her know her better” and then to a firework show across the street. Bobo did not accompany them because she was too tired to go.
When they got back, Bobo put Ariana to bed in her bedroom and watched television with Disporto before going to bed at around 11 p.m., leaving Disporto to sleep on the couch. When Bobo woke up the following morning, she found Ariana on the couch wrapped in a blanket and her boyfriend outside smoking a cigarette.
Two hours later, at around 9 a.m., Bobo unwrapped her daughter to find she was not in the same clothes as the ones she had on when she put her to bed and, more alarmingly, she had two bruises on both sides of her forehead.…
Police were called to a beach in Daytona Beach on Monday afternoon where they found 18-year-old Tatyana Allen had used the child to batter her boyfriend after the couple got into an argument.
According to witnesses, Allen was angry with her boyfriend because he would not walk with her to the bathroom. In response, Allen reportedly punched the man several times in the face before grabbing her son by the ankles and swinging him like a baseball bat at the man’s direction.
Allen then dropped the baby face-down in the sand and the boyfriend picked him up. Witnesses said Allen had been rough with the baby and at one point as she walked up the steps to the boardwalk, the baby’s head struck the railing.
Family members corroborated what witnesses told investigators, but refused to provide written statements. Surprisingly, the toddler was not injured, but was taken to a local hospital just in case.…
Holifield was a top pitcher for the Plano Senior High School Wildcats who had verbally committed to Oklahoma State University on a baseball scholarship. Those college plans are now on hold after his arrest on June 20.
According to police, Holifield was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child by sexual contact. He allegedly sexually abused two children at his mother’s in-home day care. One of the victims is reportedly 5-years-old.
The scouting site MaxPreps listed the 6-foot-7, 240-pound teen as the No. 45 high school prospect in Texas. He’s now being held at the Collin County Jail on $600,000 bond.
Holifield joins a long list of teenage boys who have sampled the goods at their mother’s day care. Some featured on this site recently include:
On April 22, 2015, Weaver gave birth to a baby girl in a bathroom at the Delta Gamma Theta sorority at Muskingum University. Weaver put the infant in a trash bag and left her outside where the newborn would die of asphyxiation.
After the body was found by Weaver’s fellow sorority sisters, Weaver was arrested and later charged with aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. Instead of owning up to what she did, Weaver would plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
During her trial, prosecutors would show that Weaver never had any intention of keeping the baby. They told the jurors that Weaver drank alcohol, smoked marijuana and played sports during her pregnancy.
Even more damning was the fact that hours after she gave birth, but before the baby’s body was found, she sent a text to the boy she believed to be the father that read: “No more baby,” and “taken care of.”
Weaver’s defense was that she was in denial about the pregnancy and thought her daughter was dead when she put her in the trash.…
According to reports, the girl’s 30-year-old mother left the baby girl on a couch for only a few seconds while she went to use the bathroom.
It was at this time that the two dogs, believed to be Shar Pei-pit bull mixes, came into the home through an open door and attacked the baby. The infant was rushed to the Community Regional Medical Center where she was later died.
The woman told police the dogs belonged to her brother and that she thought they were chained up outside when she left the door open because it was hot. She also informed police that one of the dogs is aggressive.
Sgt. Dan Macias said that at this point the baby’s death seemed like an unfortunate accident, but that the investigation is ongoing and that charges haven’t been ruled out.
The dogs are currently in the custody of the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals where they will both be euthanized.…
