Wheelersburg, OH – A mother, stepfather and grandmother are in custody, accused of holding four young children prisoner in their southern Ohio home, binding them with ropes and chains, and torturing them both physically and sexually.
The Scioto County Sheriff’s department first learned about the abuse allegations on Jan. 30th, when a teacher at an online learning school said one of the girls emailed her and asked her to call 911. The victims all lived in the home together and were being home schooled via computer, authorities said.
That same computer enabled an 11-year-old girl to reach out for help via email, claiming she and her siblings were being held prisoner in their home and were being tortured. A Sheriff’s deputy, accompanied by county children’s services, went to the home and interviewed the siblings, and evidence of the alleged abuse was apparent.
“The children stated that they had been tied with ropes and chains to their beds for weeks at a time, sometimes longer (and were) only untied to do school work on the computer,” the sheriff’s department said.…Continue Reading
Anyway, police were called to the couple’s home Monday and found Ashley Marie Prenovost nekkid, bloody and drunk. It is alleged that after the boyfriend refused coitus, Prenovost went on a rampage. Police say she punched a couple of holes in the bedroom wall and smashed a picture frame, causing injuries to both of her hands.
Then, for whatever reason, Prenovost picked up the four-month-old child she shares with her boyfriend, and began carrying her around the house, yelling and screaming and bleeding all over the place. At some point during the alleged tirade, the child’s head met a dresser.…Continue Reading
Cleveland, OH — The totally sane lookin’ fella to the right is Daniel Roman — police say he aimed a gun at his 9-year-old daughter and threatened to pull the trigger last month after the girl stepped on his dog’s tail.
The child, along with her siblings, were apparently visiting Roman for the weekend when the alleged incident occurred. It is unclear whether the child was purposely mistreating the dog, but according to police, Roman threatened her with, “Step on the dog’s tail again, and I will pull the trigger.”
Roman’s grandmother, who claims to have been at the home that particular weekend, told 19 Action News that her grandson did not make any threats towards the child. Police say, however, Roman also threatened his younger children, 7-year-old twins, with bodily harm if they breathed a word to anyone.
The children’s stepfather, when contacted by 19 Action News, had this to say to a reporter:
“He called us denying it so I knew there had to be some truth in it.…Continue Reading
Jonesboro, GA — Darrika Driver, 31, was taken into custody earlier this week for allowing her boyfriend, a man convicted for molesting her two daughters, to move back into her home. And if that isn’t shitty enough, police allege that upon his release from prison, the fucker molested Driver’s 14-year-old daughter, AGAIN, and captured the act on his cellphone.
Mays, who was on probation, was not on the property when authorities visited Driver to inquire about his whereabouts. Driver reportedly lied to police, claiming she had no idea where Mays lived. Bullshit was called. When the police returned to the woman’s home, they learned the two had beat feet and disappeared. Fortunately, their freedom was short-lived…. cops caught up with them a few days later and placed both under arrest.
Driver is being held without bond, charged with child cruelty and harboring a sex offender.…Continue Reading
KISSIMMEE, FL – Police have arrested 41-year-old Letina Smith after she was accused of subjecting three children under the age of 10 to a punishment called “the electric chair” that included zaps from a pink stun gun.
The alleged practice came to light after one of the kids got into trouble at school and pleaded with her teacher not to call her home and tell she’d misbehaved in class. The girl explained that she and her two brothers lived with her aunt and she was afraid of being punished with Letina’s electric chair.
“(She) explained that the punishment was to get touched with a ‘taser,’” the arrest report stated. “The electric chair consists of the child who is in trouble holding themselves… with their back on the wall and their legs forming a chair. They have to stay there for an hour and if they speak or move Letina will come up to them with the electrical weapon, “taser,” and activate and touch them with it.”
Police interviewed all three children separately and were given similar stories involving Letina and her pink stun gun.…Continue Reading
Napa, CA – Police have arrested Sara Krueger and Scott Warner, the couple who were being sought in connection to the death of Krueger’s 3-year-old daughter, after someone recognized them inside a restaurant.
Police were looking for Krueger and Warner after Krueger’s daughter, Kayleigh Slusher, was found dead on Saturday. The little girl was discovered by police conducting a welfare check at the couple’s apartment based on an anonymous phone tip.
Kayleigh was found lying on a bed and appeared to have suffered blunt force trauma, said Napa police Lt. Debbie Peecook, adding, “There is also preliminary evidence of a sexual assault.”
Neighbors told police they had seen Krueger and Warner leaving the apartment several hours earlier, carrying luggage. Napa police reached out to the public to help find the couple so they could be questioned, and it didn’t take long before someone gave them a call.
On Sunday, someone saw the couple 30 miles away at a restaurant near a Bay Area Rapid Transit station in El Cerrito.…Continue Reading
NEW STRAITSVILLE, OH – Police have accused a woman of abusing her two granddaughters in a variety of ways, including forcing one girl to put some shit-stained underwear in her mouth.
Investigators got involved after they received a complaint that 54-year-old Karen Sharpe was abusing her two granddaughters, ages 11 and 13. They were given cellphone video taken by the older girl that contained “the most disgusting, heinous child abuse I’ve ever seen,” according to Sheriff’s Office Detective Sgt. Ed Downs.
The video allegedly shows Sharpe stuffing a dirty pair of men’s underwear in the 11-year-old’s mouth, then taping her mouth shut. After the girl ends up vomiting because the underwear was soiled with shit, Sharpe tells the girl to “swallow it”. This particular abuse was the result of the young girl accidentally stepping on Sharpe’s injured foot.
Sharpe was also accused of hitting the older girl in the face, a girl who already has a steel plate in her head from past abuse at the hands of another adult, causing a large amount of bruising. …Continue Reading
FORT WAYNE, ID – Ashley Ann-Marie Walton, 28, is facing battery and neglect charges after admitting she threw her baby against a wall when she could not get the infant to stop crying.
On January 10, Walton called 911 to report her baby girl was lethargic and her face was swollen. She said she woke up to her infant’s cries and found the baby lying on the bedroom floor with her three-year-old daughter standing nearby saying, “ut oh”. Walton sad she thought her older daughter had accidentally dropped the infant on her head.
Walton’s baby was rushed to the hospital in critical condition suffering from a skull fracture and brain bleeding. I’m assuming the injuries were more severe than being dropped on her head, so police decided to interview Walton at the police station. Walton stuck to her original story that she’d called 911 at 12:03 pm, immediately after finding her daughter injured.
Police confiscated Walton’s cell phone to verify her story, and found Walton was more concerned about getting drugs than she was about her injured infant. …Continue Reading
HERNANDO COUNTY, FL – Police have accused Cody Marrone, a 21-year-old corrections officer, of punishing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son by repeatedly burning his genitals with a hair dryer.
Meghan Sherron said it was routine for her to leave for work while her longtime, live-in boyfriend would take him to daycare. But last Friday, Marrone called her at work to inform her that her son’s genitals were swollen.
She had Marrone come to her work so she could see what he was talking about and found that her son’s genitals were swollen to the size of a softball. She also noticed burn marks to his thigh, buttocks and chest.
“When I saw the marks on his behind, I thought, that looks like my blow dryer,” she said. When she asked Marrone what the hell happened to her kid’s junk, he went through several different stories including; he woke up and found him that way, he blacked out and doesn’t remember, and that he simply snapped.
The boy was rushed to Tampa General Hospital where doctors would find the boy was suffering from second-degree burns.…Continue Reading
OKEECHOBEE, FL — Bryan Adams, 31, is looking at some serious time in jail, along with a re-arranged face, after he abducted his son he believed was possessed by demons.
According to the police report, Adams showed up at his ex-wife’s workplace demanding her car keys. He told her he wanted their 11-year-old son and that he was seeing demons. She denied his request, and later told police she’d left Adams because of his heavy crystal meth usage.
Not taking no for an answer, Adams abducted his 11-year-old son from his bed at around 3 a.m. that morning and dragged him into some nearby woods. Adams told his son, who was clad only in his pajamas and a t-shirt, that he was possessed by a demon. ”You are the demon.” Adams informed his son. “You know what I must do with you.”
Before anyone could find out exactly what Adams had in mind, police arrived with a K-9 unit and were able to quickly locate Adams and his son lying on the ground in the woods.…Continue Reading
WOODLAND, WA – Teresa Hernandez is facing two counts of child abuse after the 35-year-old admitted to using a clothes iron to burn the hand of her boyfriend’s 3-year-old, then pushing him down a flight of stairs two days later.
The boy’s father was not at home during these assaults, but Hernandez explained to him that the burn on the boy’s hand came from him touching a hot iron after she had left the room. The boy’s father accepted this explanation, but took his son to the hospital two days later after noticing he was walking unsteadily.
Emergency room staff at Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital called police when they saw the third-degree burn on the back of the boy’s hand and found he was suffering from a severe head injury. The boy was taken to Randall Children’s Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery to treat his brain injury. As of Thursday morning, the boy was listed in fair condition.
When interviewed by police, Hernandez first repeated the “touched the iron” story she’d given the boy’s father.…Continue Reading
New Port Richey, FL – Police have charged 30-year-old Kayla Shavers with child neglect after she left her 9-year-old and 8-month-old in a freezing car while she went hog hunting.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, they received a call from the 9-year-old at around 7 a.m. Thursday morning. He told them that he and his baby sister had been in a car for 30 minutes, and the car was off.
Since it was 38 degrees outside, the boy told police he was freezing and called 911 because he figured “a police car would be warmer.” Deputies were dispatched and found the boy and his sister in a car parked on the side of a dark, isolated road.
They waited for nearly 40 minutes before Shavers finally emerged from the woods dressed in camouflage. She told police that she was hunting hogs that have been tearing up her property. She defended leaving the children in the car, explaining she stayed in close proximity and had showed the boy how to crank the vehicle if it got cold.…Continue Reading
GERMANTOWN, MD - Police have accused a woman of stabbing her two young children to death while performing an exorcism.
Police responded to the home of 28-year-old Zakieya Avery Friday morning after neighbors called to report a car outside of her house with its door open and a knife on the sidewalk. When police arrived at the home, they forced their way inside the home after seeing blood inside the car.
Inside the home they found two of Avery’s children dead, and two of them injured. Police say 1-year-old Norell Harris and his 2-year-old sister Zyana, were both found stabbed to death in their beds. Taniya Harris, 5, and Martello Harris, 8, were alive but taken to Children’s Hospital suffering from stab wounds.
Avery tried running from the scene but was quickly apprehended. She’s been charged with two counts of first degree murder and two counts of attempted first degree murder. Facing the same charges is Avery’s roommate, 21-year-old Monifa Sanford. She was first admitted to the hospital before being placed in jail without bond.…Continue Reading
Manassas, VA – A 22-year-old woman was sentenced Monday to 50 years in prison, with all but five years suspended, for the 2012 killing of a toddler left in her care. If it makes ya feel any better, she has been ordered to send a check of at least one dollar to a charity of her choosing on the date of Elijah’s death every year after her release.
Jessica Fraraccio pleaded guilty in October to killing 23-month-old Elijah Nealey because he wouldn’t stop crying.
Needless to say, Elijah’s parents, Mark and Jennifer Nealey, are a bit shocked.
“His (the judge’s) decision shows no respect whatsoever for me, my family, or the life of my son,” said Mark Nealey. “To me, it’s a total failure of our justice system. I want everyone to know what the judge thought my son’s life was worth…which is pretty much nothing, according to him.”
The Nealey’s, who both took the stand at Fraraccio’s sentencing hearing, begged the judge to punish Fraraccio “to the fullest extent the law will allow.”
In response, Judge J.…Continue Reading
Rustburg, VA – Three dumbass adults have been charged with malicious wounding and child abuse after police learned a woman’s two children were tattooed. It gets better… one of the three dumbasses arrested actually attempted to remove the tats with a heated razor blade.
The asshole allegedly responsible for tatting the kids in the first place is 20-year-old Alexander Edwards. The children, both of unknown age at this point, were apparently left in his care on December 22. Police say he gave the kiddos tattoos without their consent or their parent’s consent.
When mom, 35-year-old Melissa Derp, sorry…. Delp, and her boyfriend, 32-year-old Daniel Janney, discovered the ink, Janney had the brilliant idea of removing the tattoos with a hot razor blade, causing further scarring and pain, I’m sure.
In addition to the malicious wounding and child abuse charges, Edwards has also been charged with abduction. No bond amounts or any other information at this time.
Michael Mucklow, co-owner of a tattoo removal shop, has stepped up and offered to have the tats removed safely, using a non-invasive procedure that uses lasers to break down the pigment of a tattoo.…Continue Reading
The unidentified woman to the left entered the store at about 7:00 Wednesday evening, with two children in tow. The source article states the children, ages 1 and 7, were the women’s children, but police have yet to determine whether that’s fact.
While the woman was wandering through the store, placing items in her cart, a store clerk glanced over and watched as the woman removed a sale sticker from her purse and placed it on a toy.
At the register, the woman learned the item she placed the sticker on wasn’t on sale, and she declined the purchase. She then apparently walked out of the store with a bunch of crap in her basket that she hadn’t paid for.
The clerk, who I am sure makes minimum wage, therefore, shouldn’t give a flying fuck whether someone walked out of the damn store with half the inventory, followed. …Continue Reading
Authorities learned of the alleged abuse after the child was taken to an area hospital by her mother, Nancy Esmeralda Colomo-Gonzalez, because of possible head injuries. Doctors found that the girl had an untreated fracture in her arm, and was currently suffering from a skull fracture, hemorrhaging, and a brain injury severe enough to cause blindness.
When investigators spoke with Martinez, he had no problem laying out a timeline for the injuries.
He said that he would “rock” the baby to get her to go to sleep and that maybe in September he rocked her too hard causing the child to vomit and have seizures. The mother did take the child into the hospital for that incident, but lied about what had happened. No word on what story she used.
The arm fracture was probably from the time in October when he allegedly grabbed her arm and swung her away.…Continue Reading
Farmington, ME – Meet 43 year old Robert Parker Jr., the man with a face I dearly want to punch with some especially nasty brass knuckles. If his face alone doesn’t inspire the same in you, allow me to add some details that will surely push you there, if not further.
On September 25, 2013, Mr. Please-Throat-Punch-Me-Repeatedly, was arrested two days after Deputy Kevin Hartley of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, was sent to investigate a complaint regarding his handing out cigarettes to two girls under the age of 15. (Can you say, “grooming”? I bet you can!) One source indicates that he forced each of the girls to smoke around 50 cigarettes, which just seems like a waste of cigarettes to me.
After being arraigned, he was released on a pretrial contract that same day. I bet he was really relieved, but not for long.
The following day, Deputy Hartley received a new complaint. The ever charming Mr. Parker was apparently sending some rather impolite messages to the family of one of the girls involved in the cigarette charges, threatening to kill her if she told anyone about his disgusting, pervy ways.…Continue Reading
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Police have accused 25-year-old Nidia Alvarado of strangling her newborn to death and then tossing his body inside a dumpster.
Alvarado used a fake name when she gave birth to the boy at an area on Dec. 20. Relatives say that immediately after, Alvarado was telling them the baby boy was very ill and would probably die.
On Dec. 23, an employee working the trash line at an East Side waste management recycling center discovered the boy’s body inside a blue duffel bag. The plant stopped operations and notified police.
With the help of the recycling center, detectives were able to figure out which truck had brought the duffel bag and the truck’s route. This, combined with hospital surveillance footage, helped detectives locate Alvarado.
Once questioned, Alvarado admitted to officers she had killed her son. She told them she tried to get someone to teach her how to perform a self-abortion, but that didn’t work out. After she delivered the boy, she took him home and strangled the baby to death.…Continue Reading
SHERWOOD, AR - Andrea Clevenger, the 34-year-old mother featured on TLC’s “Cheer Perfection,” has been arrested on suspicion of raping a 13-year-old boy.
Like practically every story we’ve featured on D’D regarding a woman having sex with a minor, she got busted after the victim’s parents found sexually explicit pics and text messages on their son’s phone and contacted police.
The boy’s mother contacted Clevenger to inform her that she was aware of what she’d been doing with her son. Clevenger apologized and said she would go to rehabilitation, but also made the comment that the boy “didn’t act 13.”
When interviewed by police, the boy told investigators that he was at Clevenger’s home in November when she started making sexual advances towards him. At one point she instructed him to sit on the couch and remove his pants, which he did. He said Clevenger then straddled him and the two had sex.
He told investigators that Clevenger told him to notify her before he ejaculated. When he did, he said Clevenger got off him and let him come in her mouth. …Continue Reading
