GAITHERSBURG, MD – Police have charged 33-year-old Narges Shafeirad with the murder of her son after they say she forced the boy to overdose on allergy medicine before staging a fiery car crash.
On June 16, 5-year-old Daniel Dana was found trapped inside a burning car off Route 370. Shafeirad was face-down on the ground outside the driver’s door, screaming in pain.
Emergency crews tried to save Daniel, but he later died. Shafeirad was transported to the hospital to treat second and third degree burns to 40 percent of her body.
Shafeirad would tell Montgomery County police that the crash was an accident caused by her car catching fire, but investigators would quickly become suspicious.
For starters, fire marshals and a reconstruction team found that the fire started in the front-seat area and the car reeked of gasoline in and around the vehicle. They would later rule out a mechanical malfunction, including the fuel lines and fuel tank. But Shafeirad’s version of events really fell apart after Daniel’s toxicology results revealed the boy had died from Diphenhydramine intoxication.…
DEFOREST, WI – Theodore Peterson, 47, killed his disabled, teenage son before shooting himself in the head with a nail gun at Token Creek County Park.
On July 21, Peterson sent his wife a text saying he was at the park taking their 16-year-old son Maxwell for a walk. Maxwell suffered from Angelman syndrome, a rare neuro-genetic disorder that requires lifelong care.
While there, Peterson killed Maxwell by slitting his throat with a knife, then used a nail gun to shoot himself in the head. Peterson didn’t do as good of a job on himself as he did with his son, as he was still alive when a woman riding a horse found the pair lying on a trail.
Peterson was flown by helicopter to University of Wisconsin hospital where he was charged with the murder of his son before dying of his injuries a day or so later. No official word on a motive behind Peterson’s actions, but his wife told police that a respite care provider for Maxwell was no longer allowing a female worker into the Peterson home because of something posted on Facebook.…
A cable installer arrived at the apartment of 34-year-old Eric Warfel’s at around 10 a.m. Wednesday and went inside. In one of the rooms he would find the badly decomposed body of a 24-month-old girl in a crib. The cable installer immediately called police.
“The gentleman that was here (Warfel) would never hook up with them. Finally he gave permission to come in today and he was gone last night, so actually the poor cable repairman was the one that discovered the child,” said Medina Police Chief Patrick Berarducci.
Warfel was arrested shortly after at Crocker Park in Westlake while he was with his 7-year-old daughter. Warfel remained jailed Thursday facing a felony charge of corpse abuse. A judge has set Warfel’s bond at $1 million and a police spokesperson said additional charges are expected. His daughter was placed with grandparents while investigators tried to find the mother of the deceased child.…
PRYOR, MT – Jesus Mendoza, 18, has been accused of shooting and killing a couple after they stopped to help him after he became stranded on the side of the road.
Tana Shane, 50, was driving on Pryor Gap Road when she saw Mendoza was stranded on the side of the road. Tana continued home and picked up her husband, 52-year-old Jason Shane, and her daughter, 24-year-old Jorah Shane, with intentions of returning to help Mendoza.
The three first stopped at a nearby corner store to buy gasoline, but found the store was closed. They then went back to where Mendoza was stranded and found out the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished.
Instead of accepting their help, Mendoza opened fire on the family, killing Tana and Jason. He also shot Jorah, but the bullet grazed her head and she was able to run to a nearby school for help. She returned to the scene with family members before being transported to the hospital.
Law enforcement from the FBI, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Big Horn County Sheriff’s Department and the Montana Highway Patrol responded to the scene and immediately began searching for Mendoza who’d fled the scene in Tana’s car.…

The incident happened Sunday night when witnesses heard Rizk screaming for help. Stanton Boothby happened to be driving by and saw Rizk being dragged around by her husband’s pit bull.
Boothby got out of his car and ran to help, using the first item he could get his hands on – a guitar stand.
“When I saw this happening, I grabbed it out of the back of the car and went to the dog and I said, ‘Dog, off!’ and I just pushed like this. I never hit the dog, he just looked up and when he saw it coming he backed up.”
Neighbors had already called 911 by this time, and responding officers arrived and distracted the dog while another applied a tourniquet to Rizk’s “shredded” arm that was damaged almost up to her armpit. A tourniquet was also applied to Rizk’s legs, where she had more injuries.…
PALATKA, FL – Police have charged an 11-year-old boy with battery after they say he choked a 4-year-old child who is currently hospitalized in critical condition.
Police responded to a home at the Westover Mobile Home Park after receiving a 911 call around 4 a.m. regarding a 4-year-old child who was not breathing.
The responding officer performed CPR on the boy until paramedics arrived and transported him to the hospital.
Police noticed the injured child had strangulation marks on his neck, so they began interviewing the 12 people who lived in the home – six adults and six children eleven years old and under – and eventually determined that an 11-year-old boy was responsible for choking the toddler.
Police arrested the boy in the presence of his mother and placed him in a juvenile detention center on a charge of aggravated battery resulting in serious damage.
Capt. Dick Schauland of the Sheriff’s Office said the 11-year-old had only been back in the home a short time after returning from a Miami rehab program.…
CHARLESTON, WV – A prostitute in West Virginia shot and killed 45-year-old Neal Falls with his own gun after he tried to kill her, and may have very well stopped a serial killer’s cross-country murder spree.
According to “Heather” she had arranged a hookup with Falls via her online ad on Backpage that described her as a “sexy, red-headed sweetheart.”
But things turned bad real quick when Falls burst into Heather’s apartment brandishing a gun and asked, “live or die?”
Falls then grabbed Heather by the throat and tried to choke the life out of her. But Falls underestimated the 5-foot-6-inch, 130-pound Heather, who had no intentions of dying that day.
“When he strangled me, I grabbed my rake, and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I shot him,” Heather said. “I grabbed the gun and shot behind me I knew he was there to kill me.”
Heather, suffering from a separated shoulder and a broken vertebrae, ran to a neighbor’s apartment and called 911.…
NASHVILLE, TN — Police have arrested 37-year-old Michael Delk for the sexual exploitation of his three-month-old daughter.
Police first started investigating Delk after getting a call that he’d smacked his wife around at the Roadway Inn motel where they both lived with their baby.
Delk was arrested and during a follow-up investigation, police were told that there were some images on Delk’s cellphone that they may be interested in.
What police found on the phone, aside from over 30 images of children engaged in sexual activity, was images of Delk having some sexy time with his baby daughter.
Delk is now in jail on $76,000 bond on charges of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual exploitation of minors. Police say additional charges against Delk are anticipated.
If the allegations are true, maybe we can also anticipate fellow inmates stomping Delk’s head into mush. Or Delk’s limbs twitching against his cell floor after he hangs himself with his shirt. One can dream.…
Lewis was with Christopher Lynch, 21, and a man that she had just met, Clayton Webb Jr., 21, when they went to the home of a man selling a Ruger .22 caliber rifle that Webb was interested in purchasing.
The seller was not home, but he had left the rifle in his truck so they could check it out. According to Catawba County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Joel Fish, Lewis suggested they take a picture of the rifle.
Webb told officers that he didn’t realize that there was a magazine in the rifle, and everyone figured it out the hard way when he accidentally fired the rifle and hit Lewis in the chest as she was taking a picture of him. Lewis was rushed to a nearby hospital, but died before she could be flown to a Charlotte hospital.
No charges have been filed against Webb or Lynch at this time, but the sheriff’s office is continuing their investigation into the incident.…

According to police, the girl got into an argument with her stepmother, 50-year-old Maria Torres, that led to the girl starting a small fire in her bedroom. When Torres confronted the girl about the fire, the girl stabbed her.

The incident happened on July 7 when Garcia and another man were lighting off fireworks in an alley. Their activity attracted the attention of a neighbor’s pit bull.

CITRUS COUNTY, FL – Robert Doyle, 51, has been charged with murder after shooting 41-year-old Candelerio Gonzalez to death in front of his family during a road rage incident.
What do you get when you put two men with anger issues in the same place, at the same time, if one of them also happens to be armed with a gun? If you guessed one man dead in the middle of a neighborhood street and the other man charged with murder, you would be correct.
Doyle was with his wife in one vehicle, while Gonzalez was in another with his wife, daughter and grandchild. No word on what happened, exactly, but Doyle did something on the road that really, really pissed Gonzalez off. So much so that Gonzalez decided to follow Doyle home to get an address for police.
So while Doyle was being chased home by Gonzalez, both parties were on the phone with 911 reporting the other. You can listen to portions of the 911 calls in the video below, but basically it entailed Doyle telling 911 he was being followed to his home by an unknown individual who he was going to “shoot in the head” with the gun he had “cocked, locked and ready to go.”
Gonzalez’ wife was also talking with 911, explaining they were following an “idiot” who had been driving like a moron and who someone needed to “smack the crap out of.” Despite the dispatcher telling them to disengage and to let the police handle it from there, hot heads prevailed and Doyle pulled in front of his house with Gonzalez pulling up behind him.…
