BOSTON, MA – Michelle Carter, 18, is facing involuntary manslaughter charges after investigators say she encouraged 18-year-old Conrad Roy to commit suicide last year.
Roy was found dead inside his truck behind a K-Mart last year. The teen had decided to kill himself and did so via carbon monoxide poisoning. After a lengthy investigation, it was revealed that Carter had “strongly influenced” Roy to kill himself.
After his body was found, police searched the teen’s cell phone and found thousands of text messages between him and Carter in the days leading to his death. The text messages continued up until the moments before he died.
“It is alleged that Ms. Carter had firsthand knowledge of Roy’s suicidal thoughts,” the district attorney’s office said. “Instead of attempting to assist him or notify his family or school officials, Ms. Carter is alleged to have strongly influenced his decision to take his own life, encouraged him to commit suicide and guided him in his engagement of activities which led to his death.”
And by encouraging Roy, they mean she basically instructed him to. …

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.

“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.”

Police responded to a Tulsa hospital early Thursday morning, where they spoke to a man who claimed his girlfriend, Amber Ellis, attacked him while he slept.
After an evening of imbibing, the two began arguing about how “needy” she had become in recent weeks. (PSA, fellas — the word “needy” is a trigger in the craziest of psycho bitches. So is “suffocating” and “smothering.” And may your lord help you if you start in on the whole “I need a little breather” spiel).
The verbal argument continued when the couple reached their apartment, and seemingly ended when Ellis stormed into the bedroom and slammed the door. The victim, believing he was safe, fell asleep on the couch. With both eyes closed. Silly man.
He told police he woke to find Ellis chewing on his dick. When he tried to fight her off, he said, she hit him in the head with a laptop.…

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.…
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL – Jason Rios, a paranoid schizophrenic, used a crowbar to beat his family, killing his disabled mother and 9-year-old niece.
Ernesto and Angela Rios were trying to keep their four grandchildren together after they’d been removed from their mother for substance abuse and placed in foster homes.
To makes matters even more difficult, Angela was wheelchair bound after losing her legs to diabetes. Also living in the home was their son, Rios, who family say suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.
On the morning of Feb 5, Ernesto woke his four grandchildren, Jenica Randazzo, 9; La’nyla Heater, 7; Chancellor Rios, 4; and Dominic Putnam, 13, for to school and hopped in the shower.
Soon after he entered the bathroom, Ernesto heard screaming. He rushed into his granddaughter’s room only to find La’nyla bloodied with severe head injuries and Jason on top of her with a crowbar. Ernesto was able to take the weapon from his son then forced him outside of the house.
The two boys, who were uninjured, fled down the street to the home of a retired police officer who went to assist the family, while his wife stayed with the children and called 911.…
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.…
FRANKLIN, TN – Kristi Clark, 34, and her 10-year-old son, Carter Oakley, were both killed Monday night after being struck by a semi on Interstate 65 while trying to help another family involved in a crash.
According to police, an SUV flipped after hitting some black ice just after 9:15 p.m. Kristi Clark and her son witnessed the accident and stopped to help the five people inside the SUV.

After Reyes went missing, anonymous postings began showing up on social media that taunted Reyes’ family by telling them that Reyes was dead and giving them gruesome clues as to where his body could be found.
Eventually they posted the address of a vacant house where they said the boy’s body could be found. Turns out they were telling the truth. Reyes body was found under the floorboards of that vacant home on Sunday.
“It was a particularly cruel way to tell his mother and father what they had done but they made a game of it,” said Commissario Tirse Diaz.
On Tuesday night, police arrested four teenagers, aged 15, 16, 16, and 17, in connection with the brutal slaying. Because of their ages, the boys will be tried for the grisly murder in juvenile court.

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.…
