NEW MILFORD, NJ – A 7-year-old boy was killed inside Berkley Street Elementary School when a folding table attached to a wall fell on his head during a recreational soccer practice.
The accident happened on Wednesday evening inside the school’s gym, which also acts as the school’s cafeteria. When not being used as a cafeteria, fold-down lunch tables and benches, constructed of wood and steel and weighing 100 pounds, are folded into the wall and anchored.
Brendan Jordan was playing with a soccer ball with six of his teammates when he approached one of these recessed benches. For reasons currently unknown, the bench fell out of the wall and struck Jordan in the side of his head. He immediately collapsed and a soccer coach, New Milford police officer Bryan Mone, began administrating CPR.
Despite his attempts, and the attempts of responding emergency services personnel, Jordan would be pronounced dead a short time later after being transported to Hackensack Medical Center.
It is not known if Jordan was messing with the bench before it fell, and School Superintendent Michael Polizzi admitted he didn’t know if the table had been locked properly.…
ELBA, NY – Police say a group of fourth-graders at Elba Elementary School planned on killing their teacher by exposing her to hand sanitizer.
Three students were involved with the alleged plot that was foiled in December before winter break. Their plan was to coat her personal belongings with anti-bacterial products because they knew she is highly allergic to them.
The plot was uncovered, as the usually are, because one or all of the kids involved talked too much. Word of their plans reached another student who also happens to have a parent on the school board. That parent contacted police.
Youth officers questioned the students the day before they were questioned by Elba School Superintendent Jerome Piwko, School Principal Scott Kapperman and a school counselor. During that meeting, with their parents present, one student stated that her teacher “yells at us and that the class has problems with her.” They also
The principal and school counselor told police the students contradicted themselves because their stories were different than what they said during their meeting with the youth officers.…
BAIA MARE, ROMANIA – I don’t normally post stories from other countries, but this one was too messed up to pass up. It’s out of Romania, where a man has been accused of attacking his teen girlfriend, cutting out her tongue and gouging out one of her eyeballs.
Evangelino Colon, 32, flew into a rage when his 17-year-old girlfriend, Filis Orellana, said she wanted to take their six-month-old baby and three-year-old daughter back to her mother’s home. Orellana had moved to her mother’s a few days earlier after Colon beat her inside the couple’s makeshift hut.
Colon allegedly hit Orellana over the head with an ax before repeatedly punching her in the face as she was on the floor. He then used a knife to slice off her tongue and gouge out one of her eyeballs. He did all of this in front of their children.
Police responded to the scene after neighbors heard screaming. Neighbour Alina Medrea said: “I heard this screaming coming from her and then when that stopped I could still hear the kids, and when I ran out to see what was happening I saw him running off with an axe.…

PORTLAND, OR – A 25-year-old child molestation victim has been ordered to register as a sex offender after admitting to having a baby with her mentally disabled, teenage brother.
The woman pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree sexual abuse as part of a plea deal that would have her avoiding prison time. The judge took into account the fact that the woman is a sexual assault victim herself.
From the ages of 8 to 11, the woman was raped by her mother’s boyfriend. That man is currently serving a 20 year prison sentence.
After her arrest last August, the woman would admit that she had sex with her developmentally disabled brother 10 times between 2013 and 2014 while he was living with her. Even worse, she would go on to give birth to his baby.
He was under 18 at the time and has an IQ of 54, according to a probable cause affidavit. He is currently living with his mother, but there is no word on who currently has custody of the baby.…
NEBRASKA – Timothy DeFoggi, the former acting director of cyber security at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for child pornography charges.
Last year we reported on 56-year-old DeFoggi, known online as PTasseater, after he was convicted as part of an ongoing investigation that targeted three child porn websites.
All three of the websites were being run by a single administrator, 31-year-old Aaron McGrath, who felt his activities were being operated and visited anonymously through TOR.
The FBI eventually found McGrath’s child porn sites and began monitoring them after they initiated “Operation Torpedo” in 2012. This program scoured TOR websites to determine if they were related to illegal activity.
By time they were done, investigators had enough info to identify and indict two dozen people, including DeFoggi. When agents arrived at his home, he was in the process of downloading a child porn video from a Tor website called Onion Pedo Video Archive.
According to their evidence, DeFoggi accessed child pornography, solicited child pornography from other members, and exchanged private messages with other members where he expressed an interest in the violent rape and murder of children.…
