NEWTON, IA – Tina Durant has been charged with child endangerment after police say the 37-year-old she allowed a 24-year-old friend have sex with her 11-year-old daughter, who is now pregnant.
Jacob White was arrested on July 17 and charged with third-degree sexual abuse after the 11-year-old turned up pregnant and after her parents read Facebook conversations between the girl and White.
But police ended up arresting Durant on Friday after witnesses came forward to report Durant was fully aware that White was having sex with her daughter.
According to witnesses who lived in the home, White slept in the same bed with the victim. They said they addressed it with Durant who did nothing to stop it. According to the police report, the girl was heard telling her mother, “I tried to tell you several times,” during a doctor’s appointment.
Because she failed to notify law enforcement, call the Department of Human Services or taking any action herself, Durant was charged with child endangerment. She’s since been released and will be back in court on Sept.9.…Continue Reading
DELTONA, FL - Montrell Brundidge got himself into some trouble after he got upset with a 6-year-old boy and punished him with a weed-whacker.
Police were called to a home on Monday on a report of someone being hit with a lawnmower. When they arrived, they spoke with the boy who told them that 25-year-old Brundidge had used a weed-whacker on his leg, then showed them injuries to his left leg and ankle area.
He said Brundidge purposefully hit him with the gardening tool on purpose as punished for not listening and accidentally hitting another child.
Deputies took pictures of the boy’s injuries, which did not require medical attention, then went to Brundidge’s home. He admitted to police that he “made a bad decision” when he got upset with the boy for not listening and used a weed-whacker for discipline.
Montrell Brundidge was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse. He’s currently reflecting on his corporal punishment methods in the Volusia County Branch Jail without bond. Department of Children and Families are now investigating.…Continue Reading
EDGEWATER, FL – Briana Buchanan is behind bars on meth manufacturing after her 7-year-old son turned her in.
Buchanan and her son lived with her boyfriend’s brother, Peter, who the boy considers an uncle. Peter said that the boy mentioned his mother had been “cooking something bad” and said he had something he wanted to show him.
The boy brought his uncle to his mother’s car and opened up the trunk. Inside the trunk was some of the boy’s toys and materials needed to use and manufacture meth. Peter immediately closed the trunk and called 911.
“Her son, who’s 7, just told me she keeps bad stuff in her car, and he opened up the trunk, and she has a meth lab in her trunk,” Peter told the 911 dispatcher.
After police arrived and found the drug paraphernalia inside the trunk, they arrested Buchanan on charges of child neglect, possession of chemicals, meth and paraphernalia, and manufacturing and delivery of meth.
Her son was placed in the custody of his grandmother, who plans on enrolling him into school this week.…Continue Reading
TAMPA, FL – Police have charged 24-year-old Austin Hamilton with first-degree murder after he admitted to using a belt to whip a 1-year-old to death because the boy peed on him during a diaper change.
On Saturday, the child’s mother went to work and left him and his 6-year-old brother with Hamilton in a room at the Motel 6 where she lived. Hamilton, who is not the father of either child, called 911 later that night to report the boy was having trouble breathing.
The child would die after being rushed to the hospital by paramedics who arrived and found him unresponsive on a bed. Hamilton initially claimed he didn’t hit or punish the boy in any way, and that the boy was not involved in any accidents.
That story would change after the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office report stated the child died as a result of blunt force trauma to the lower abdomen, and ruled his death a homicide.
When detectives confronted Hamilton with these findings, he changed his story and admitted he was responsible for the boy’s death.…Continue Reading
In the short time that the laundry detergent pod has been made available to the public, 20,000 cases of accidental ingestion have been reported.
Some of these accidental poisonings have been fatal, like the 1-year-old boy we reported on last year who died in a battered women’s shelter after eating a laundry detergent pod.
Of course people are blaming the packaging, stating they look too much like candy. In response, manufacturers have been changing the look of the pods to make them less attractive to toddlers whose parents have ensured kids can get their hands on them.
This latest incident was out of Minnesota where a baby thought one of the pods was a blueberry, like the ones she’d been eating earlier. The pod exploded in her mouth, sending caustic chemicals down her throat. She spent several days in ICU, but is now at home recovering.…Continue Reading
We reported on Clevenger earlier this year after her sexual relationship with the boy was discovered by the kid’s mom. The boy went on to describe the great time he had with Clevenger, including coming in her mouth after sex, and morning car blows.
Text messages and pictures sent between the two seemed to confirm what the kid was saying, and police would issue two felony warrants for rape and engaging children in sexually explicit conduct for use in a visual or print medium.
Last Thursday, Clevenger pleaded guilty to sexual assault and engaging in sexually explicit conduct with a minor. In return, she was sentenced to 10 years behind bars and will have to register as a sex offender.
Clevenger and her daughter were featured in two seasons of TLC’s “Cheer Perfection,” a forgettable reality show about a team of cheerleaders at Cheer Time Revolution in Sherwood.…Continue Reading
MERCER, PA – A courtroom burst into applause after a judge ordered the mother and grandparents of an 8-year-old boy found almost starved to death, jailed until their trial on attempted murder charges.
The boy was found by a caseworker in June after a neighbor called authorities to report seeing a “walking skeleton” at the home the boy shared with his mother, Mary Rader, 28; his grandmother, Deana Beighley, 48; and his step-grandfather, Dennis Beighley, 59; and three siblings.
The boy was taken to Greenville Medical Center where a doctor remarked that “the young man is so emaciated he looks like a Holocaust survivor.” Hospital staff noted the boy’s bones protruded so sharply that his skin broke open in some areas, and that he likely wouldn’t have lived for another month.
The boy told investigators that he was fed only small amounts of food so he would often eat bugs when he was allowed onto the back porch.
Rader and her parents claimed the boy wasn’t being neglected, but that he had a hormone problem.…Continue Reading
FULLERTON, CA — Before I get started with today’s terrible news, I thought I would provide you with some good news in the form of an update on Lester and Petra Huffmire.
In case you’ve forgotten, this is the couple who were arrested last year after it was discovered they’d been keeping two female relatives, ages 5 and 10, malnourished and locked inside a nasty trailer for three years while they played World of Warcraft.
The two girls stayed with the unemployed couple from May 21, 2010 to May 20, 2013, in their trailer at the Satellite Mobile Homes Estate. The girls were never allowed to go outside for any reason, and were not allowed to attend school.
Police visited the trailer after receiving multiple calls from concerned neighbors. What they found inside was a trailer full of filth. It was littered with stacks of trash, debris, mold, and feces. There were a pile of used condoms found under a stuffed teddy bear, the kitchen appliances were covered in mold and cobwebs, and the toilets did not work.…Continue Reading
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Briana Holland is facing a slew of charges, including attempted murder, after the 22-year-old admitted to stuffing her newborn baby inside a trash can and leaving it to die.
Last Friday night, an employee at United Technology Carrier Corporation called a maintenance worker to a bathroom because they thought they heard an animal in the bathroom’s trash can.
The maintenance worker looked inside the trash can and found a newborn baby wrapped in bags used to dispose of sanitary napkins. The “lower half of the baby was put in a brown paper bag” and the “baby’s head was inside in another brown paper bag.”
Even worse, after the bags were removed, the baby was found to have toilet paper tightly wrapped “approximately 15 times” around his neck, court documents said, and had tissue and a plastic tampon applicator in his mouth. The baby was purple, cold and gasping for air before he stopped breathing.
The maintenance worker quickly removed the items from the baby’s mouth, wrapped the baby in a shirt and used his hands to stop the bleeding umbilical cord.…Continue Reading
TALLAHASSEE, FL – Police have arrested 63-year-old Martha White after she was accused of stabbing her 7-year-old grandson to death because she was fed up with babysitting him and his brother.
Mason Rhinehart, 7, and his 8-year-old brother were playing video games when White walked and told them she had a surprise for them. She took Mason into the bathroom and locked the door behind her.
Mason’s older brother said he then heard Mason crying and begging for his life, saying: “I don’t want to die, please don’t kill me.”
The boy said he tried to open the door to help his brother, but was unsuccessful. Instead, he called the cops and his father before finding a hiding spot.
White eventually walked out of the bathroom covered in blood, then left the house with a bottle of wine. But before she walked out, she reportedly told the boy that she “had a surprise for him too.”
Police arrived at the home within five minutes and found Mason lying on the bathroom floor suffering from multiple stab wounds to the chest.…Continue Reading
LARAMIE, WY – WARNING! Midway into this article, I begin using the word “they”as a gender-neutral singular because the sex of the child is unknown, rather than as a plural pronoun. Going by the comments, this seems to have confused the hell out of people. I figured I’d warn some of you beforehand so you are not also stuck staring at your monitor in confusion, with drool pooling from your mouth. You’re welcome.
Jena Harman and Alexander Smith have been charged with child abuse and felonious restraint after they allegedly kept Harman’s 7-year-old child in an outdoor cage.
The couple were arrested after a neighbor discovered the child and contacted police. This wouldn;t be the first time police have been called regarding the child, as the Sheriff’s Office says they’ve received complaints of child abuse and requests for welfare checks since August.
When deputies got to the couple’s home on this latest trip, they found the kid inside a six feet square, five feet tall cage constructed of cattle paneling and wooden snow fence.…Continue Reading
EDGEWOOD, NM – Salvador Martinez has been accused of stabbing his girlfriend’s 9-month-old puppy to death with a screwdriver, then skinning the dog and marinating it in Italian dressing.
Torrance County deputies responded to the man’s home after receiving a call regarding the 46-year-old’s odd behavior. When they arrived, a woman told them that Martinez had killed the family dog, a 9-month-old black-and-white chiweenie named Onyx.
But that’s not all he did. After stabbing the dog to death with a screwdriver, he skinned and cut up the puppy before storing the meat in the fridge in an Italian dressing marinade.
Afterwards, he went online to search for dog meat recipes (I find wedding style dog stew to be quite tasty) and to check if eating dog was illegal in New Mexico.
Martinez freely admitted to deputies what he’d done, claiming the couple didn’t have enough food for themselves and the grandkids that lived there. This claim was denied by his girlfriend, who told investigators there was plenty of food in the house.…Continue Reading
LONGMONT, CO — A Colorado mother jumped from the frying pan into the fire after she ran down a concerned couple who’d called police about her young boy being left in a hot car.
Shannon Dominguez, 43, and her boyfriend, Alan Mason, were leaving the Dollar Tree when they noticed a young boy alone in a locked car in the parking lot and called 911.
“All four windows were rolled up. And it was in the direct sun. It scares the heck out of me. It’s some innocent child might die,” said Dominguez.
As she was on the phone with police, the boy’s mother, 27-year-old Kristina Riddell, approached them and became very angry. She punched Mason before jumping in her car.
Riddell backed her Honda up, hitting Dominguez and running over her leg. She then hit Mason, who went over the hood of the car before grabbing on to Riddell’s door.
“She had her windows down, so I grabbed onto the door. She drug me about 20 feet. I realized she was not going to stop, so I let go.…Continue Reading
COLUSA, CA — Here’s a nice lesson for some of you parents out there: Never abduct a teenager to make him apologize for making your kid cry. A couple in California did it, and now they are facing kidnapping and false imprisonment charges.
Frances Sanapaw says her 13-year-old son, Nicholas, was playing near the river at Memorial Grove park with several other kids when he “accidentally” hurt the 6-year-old son of Rebecca and Jose Molina, making the young boy cry.
Witnesses say Rebecca Molina was not pleased with this. She reportedly snatched Nicholas by the shirt and started punching him before leaving the park to get her husband. When she and Jose returned, they chased Nicholas down and forced him into their minivan.
They then drove the teen to their home and forced him inside where they made him get on his knees and apologize to their 6-year-old for upsetting him. That’s about the time police showed up and took the couple into custody.
Rebecca and Jose are now in jail on kidnapping, false imprisonment and child cruelty charges.…Continue Reading
LAKE CHARLES, LA - You know, it’s probably time to re-evaluate your life if you find yourself in the same position as Princess Marks, the 25-year-old woman who was arrested for leaving her two young kids alone in a car so she could suck her boyfriend’s dick.
It was sometime after midnight when police responded to reports of two children alone in an a vehicle at a Lake Charles retail store. Officers would find an SUV with the windows rolled down and two children, ages 7 and 5, alone inside.
It didn’t take them long to locate Marks, the childrens’ mother, who admitted she had been in another vehicle performing oral sex on her boyfriend. She also admitted that she was unable to see her vehicle from her boyfriend’s car.
The report didn’t mention if this was because of where her boyfriend’s car was parked, or because Marks’ vision was being obscured by her boyfriend’s balls.
Marks was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on charges of child desertion.…Continue Reading
FLINT, MI – Back in 2011, 23-year-old Donovan Haynes beat his toddler to death in an attempt to turn her into a lesbian. On Monday, a judge sentenced Haynes to 18 years and nine months in prison.
Ti’Airra Woodward was rushed to the hospital after the 2-year-old was found unresponsive in her mother’s basement. A medical examiner’s report indicated she died of internal bleeding from a lacerated liver caused by blunt force trauma to the abdomen.
There were also adult human bite marks all over the girl’s body.
Haynes was quickly taken into custody and would tell police that he only bit his daughter in the leg because she wet the bed. However, a pre-sentence investigation report claimed that Haynes beat the girl in an attempt to toughen her up and to turn her gay so she would avoid men like him.
Facing life behind bars on charges of open murder, first-degree murder and torture, Haynes eventually pleaded no contest to second-degree murder to avoid a trail which could have netted him 31 years in prison.…Continue Reading
EDMOND, OK – Matthew Durham, 19, has been charged with four counts of traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with children after he was accused of committing sex acts with children while volunteering at a Kenyan orphanage.
The crimes were allegedly committed between April 30 to June 17, when Durham made his fourth visit to the Upendo Children’s Home in Nairobi and requested to stay at the orphanage. On his previous visits in June 2012, June 2013, and in December, he stayed with sponsor families offsite.
According to court documents, a Kenyan caretaker who lives at the orphanage noticed some of the children were acting strange and decided to question them. They would tell the caretaker that Durham had been sexually abusing them.
The founder of the children’s home, Eunice Menja, told the FBI that when Durham was confronted with the allegations that he admitted he’d sexually assaulting between four and ten children of both sexes between the ages of 4 and 10 – including one who is HIV-positive.…Continue Reading

Neighbors who live on the 7900 block of Bull Hill Rd. called police after they heard Munford’s children crying inside the car Friday morning.
When police arrived on the scene, they found Munford’s children in a car in the driveway with the windows rolled down. As for Munford, police found him 30 feet away, behind an apartment building where he was having sex with a woman against a wall.
