GRAFTON, ND – Police have accused 23-year-old Jordan Nelson of locking four young children in a dog cage in the basement of their home, and feeding one of the kids dog food.
Court documents say the children, ages 5 to 9, were being held under “terrorizing conditions.”
More specifically, Nelson, who is in a relationship with the children’s biological mother, would punish the children by placing them in the dog cage in the basement and turning off the light.
Nelson is also accused of making one of the kids eat dog food, which made him throw up. When police interviewed the children, one of them drew a picture of himself in the kennel with the words “help me.”
Police did not note if the child wanted help because they were in a kennel or because they were in North Dakota.
Nelson was arrested and has been charged with four counts of felony abuse and neglect of a child and felonious restraint. She’s since been released on bond and ordered to stay away from the children.…

A call to 911 by a passing FedEx driver alerted police to a woman who appeared to be giving a child CPR in the driveway of a home. The FedEx driver, Netha Preston, soon realized that woman was not trying to save the child when she witnessed the woman slamming the boy’s head onto the edge of the driveway.
“I thought she was giving him CPR, but then she started slamming his head on the edge of the concrete driveway. I turned so I could see, and she raised the knife and started stabbing the baby. She had to be sick, or on drugs,” said Preston. “It’s no way somebody could do their blood like that. There’s no way.”
When deputies arrived they found 23-year-old Jenea Mungia flipping her shit armed with a garden tool, naked from the waist up on top of her 4-year-old boy.…

GRANTS PASS, OR – Stephen Williams Jr., 26, and Amanda Hancock, 21, have been charged with starving their 7-week-old son to death while Hancock was busy self-lactating online for paying customers.
Last month, and ambulance was called to the couple’s home to treat an infant who’d stopped breathing. Data Hancock would die later, despite best efforts to revive him. The couple was arrested on murder charges on Tuesday after an autopsy revealed the infant had starved to death.
According to the charging documents, the couple showed “extreme indifference” to human life by failing to provide Data Hancock adequate food and medical care. The couple admitted that they never took Data to any doctor appointments and didn’t participate in any prenatal care before Data was born.
Williams told investigators the baby was fed milk a few times a day, but he did notice the baby was losing weight. He didn’t call the doctor “because that was Amanda’s responsibility.”
One reason why the infant may have went hungry was because Hancock’s breast milk was being sprayed out of her nips for the enjoyment of paying customers.…
NEWPORT, NH – Jerry Carrier is facing first degree assault charges after he shook his three-month-old baby again, the latest shaking the result of the 26-year-old man-child becoming upset at a video game.
In early January, police were called to a home after Carrier’s baby showed signs of distress. The child was taken to the hospital and released, only to return to the hospital the next day because he couldn’t keep food down. The infant remained in the hospital for a couple of days, police said.
Two weeks later, at a different home, a similar scenario played out. This time the infant was found by his mother and was described as limp with his eyes rolled back in its head, unresponsive, not breathing, and blue.
The baby was transported back to the hospital where it was determined that the infant’s injuries were the result of “non-accidental trauma” and were very similar to the injuries it had suffered two weeks prior while also under Carrier’s care.
Carrier, who has no fixed address, was on parole during these two instances for second degree assault, for an incident that did not involve a minor.…
LONDON – Police have been scouring the city looking for a woman who approached a mother and her one-year-old son in a Boots Pharmacy and apparently tried to choke the toddler.
The incident happened in January and was captured by in-store surveillance cameras. Police have now released the footage that shows the woman walking into the store and approaching a woman shopping with her 1-year-old inside a stroller.
The woman can then be seen reaching inside the baby’s buggy. The mother first thought the woman was just checking out her child, but quickly realized the stranger had her hand around her child’s throat.
The woman had such a grip on the child’s throat that you can see her pushing the buggy down the aisle while the boy’s mother frantically grabs at her hand in an attempt to stop her. The mother succeeded in stopping the woman from causing any injuries to her son, but admits she was terrified and traumatized by the incident.
A store security guard would intervene and escort the sexagenarian out of the store.…

The probation officer was at the man’s home over the weekend looking for Vasquez’s son, who is on probation for breaking and entering. His search led him to a shed behind the home where he found Vasquez in the act of raping a little girl.
“All I could focus on was getting him away from the little girl. Of course, other emotions, as a parent myself, you know, were flowing high,” said probation officer Jonathan Thomas. “All I wanted to do was get him out of that situation, away from her.”
Vasquez was arrested and charged with first degree rape of a child. He is currently in custody at the Pitt County Detention Center under $1 million bond.
Neighbors told police that several of the neighborhood children play outside Vasquez’s home, lured there by a large sandpit in the backyard.

According to reports, the girl called Whitehead’s mother, Tina, Friday evening and asked if she wanted her to watch the infant to give her a break.
Tina, who has three other children, took her up on the offer. She had no reservations regarding the girl watching after Zuri because the girl’s mother, Tina’s best friend for the last five years. would also be at the home.
Police say the 11-year-old was with her mother and Zuri on a couch until around 3 a.m. , until her mother fell asleep. That’s when the girl allegedly carried Zuri upstairs and beat the shit out of her. She carried Zuri’s bloody body back downstairs thirty minutes later and woke her mother.
Zuri was alive, but barely. She could barely open her eyes and was having a hard time breathing. She was rushed to the hospital but would die of internal injuries at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland.…
Damian Fletcher, 32, was charged Monday after allegedly trying to lure a couple of little girls onto the city bus with offers of free candy.
Police claim Fletcher approached the girls, ages 9 and 11, Saturday afternoon and said, “Come with me on the bus and we’ll go get some candy together and then I can take you places, come on.”
Thankfully, the girls were too smart to fall for it — all kids know that the best free candy only comes from white, windowless vans. They told police they didn’t know Fletcher, and got a little scared when he asked them for a hug.
During the booking process, deputies overheard Fletcher say he just wanted to have sexual contact with the girls. I, for one, am shocked.
Fletcher was charged with trying to lure or entice a child under 12, a misdemeanor, but bond was increased to $150,000.…
SEQUOYAH COUNTY, OK – An 8-year-old boy has died after his uncle placed an explosive on a stove and then shot it with a high-powered rifle.
According to Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart, the boy’s 30-year-old uncle was experimenting with some Tannerite and placed some inside a metal pot on a stove in the yard.
For those of you unaware and too lazy to use Google. Tannerite is a substance sold in gun stores that’s often used for making exploding targets for firearms practice. Or taking down barns. Or blowing up feral hogs.
After the man shot the pot, metal shrapnel from the resulting explosion hit the boy and a 22-year-old man who were standing about 30 yards away. The boy was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition but would die overnight. The 22-year-old remains in the hospital.
The boy’s uncle was taken into custody on child abuse charges, but could be looking at upgraded charges since the boy has died. Another male and female are in custody on charges of providing false information during an investigation.…
According to police, the boy’s aunt, Denise Kroutil, asked co-worker Nathan Firoved to help her family teach her nephew a lesson. She and other relatives felt that the boy was “too nice to people” and felt the only way to fix that was to abduct and terrorize him.
Firoved agreed that was a great idea, as did Elizabeth Hupp, the boy’s mother, and the boy’s grandmother, Rose Brewer. So they all put their heads together and came up with a plan that they carried out on Monday as the boy was walking home from his school bus.
That’s when Firoved lured the boy into his truck and told him he would “never see his mommy again” and that he would be “nailed to the wall of a shed.” When the boy started to cry, Firoved showed the boy a gun and told him to stop crying or he would hurt him.…
Police say 30-year-old Guadalupe Diaz’s son got into a fight with another boy at their school that ended with both boys being suspended.
According to the Harris County Precinct 6 Constable’s Office, Diaz allegedly confronted the other boy as he walked home from school. No details on that initial confrontation, but it lead to the boy running from her and into a nearby cellphone store looking for help.
Investigators say surveillance footage from the store shows Diaz following the boy in the store where she chokes him and tries to pull him outside before fleeing the scene in a red SUV.
A warrant was issued for Diaz after the altercation, and she was picked up after an officer saw her standing at an intersection. Diaz has been charged with injury to a child under 15, a third-degree felony.…
OCALA, FL — Police have arrested 24-year-old Larry Floyd after they say he used a kitchen knife to try and circumcise his 20-month-old nephew.
According to police, Floyd was staying at his sister’s house where the child and his siblings were being babysat. The babysitter stated they heard the baby crying in another room and then witnessed Floyd leaving the room with a bloody knife.
The child’s father arrived home shortly after and found his son bleeding then immediately rushed him to the hospital non-life-threatening injuries to his genitals. According to Sgt. Michael Sommer, Floyd told the father he was trying to circumcise the boy with a kitchen knife.
Floyd was arrested and charged with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He has not given a reason why he decided to carry out the procedure on his nephew. Doctors say the boy is expected to recover.
By looking at Floyd’s picture, it’s hard to imagine he’s had run-ins with the law before, but he has served jail time for petty theft, drug possession and domestic battery.…
Dunnedin, Fl – Daniel Adams and his girlfriend were arrested after police say the couple took their child to kill a dog owned by Adams’ parents, then tried covering up the killing by staging a robbery.
Adams, 34, drove to his parent’s home with the intentions of handling his parent’s dog, Daisy, a 4-year-old Labrador they felt was a danger to others. Along for the ride were his girlfriend Lauren Curran, 28, and their son.
According to the couple, Daisy had been demonstrating aggressive behavior, including snapping at another family dog, that left the couple and their son fearful of the dog. To fix that issue, they decided to kill it.
Investigators say Curran “killed the dog with an intravenous needle filled with an unknown medication.” When the deed was done, the couple tried to cover their tracks by making it appear like the death was the result of a burglary inside the home by stealing an iPad.
Their fool-proof plan to kill the dog and cover it up by stealing an Apple product – that can be tracked once turned on – was thwarted after what can no doubt be a very short investigation.…
EASTPOINTE, MI – Angela Alexie is behind bars after police say the 24-year-old gave birth to a baby that she let starve to death in an unheated garage.
On Jan 14th, employees at a Roseville recycling center found a dead newborn on a sorting conveyor and contacted police. The resulting investigation lead police to Alexie, who is homeless, and she would admit to them that the baby was hers.
According to Alexie, she gave birth to the baby boy on Dec 22 at a home she had been living at, possibly with her boyfriend. Instead of calling for help or dropping the baby off at the nearest fire station, Alexie put the baby in the home’s unheated garage until it died several days later.
“She left the house and then back out to the garage to check on the baby every few hours,” said Roseville Police Detective Brad McKenzie. “Then the baby finally passed away on the 24th of December.”
McKenzie went on to say that the dead baby was placed in a recycling can by “some unknown person” weeks later.…
