Seattle, WA – A possible dispute over property lines between neighbors turned dangerous and somewhat hysterical when a 51 year-old Barry Alan Swegle hopped in a bulldozer and started smashing into houses.
Swegle is reported to have a lengthy criminal history which includes public indecency, stalking and burglary. He is also known by his neighbors as the guy who digs random holes with his bulldozer late at night. It would seem it was simply a matter of time before Barry was featured here at the Dreamin’ Demon for something.
One of his neighbors, Barbara Porter, claims she knew this was coming. She states “We all said one of these days Barry is going to take that dang cat and he’s going to start tearing up people’s property and that’s what he did.” Well then. The rampage started sometime around noon on Friday, when Barry decided to play Blastcorps in real life. I hope Joe Lieberman doesn’t hear about this one.
Barry fired up an International Harvester TD-25 and took out his grumpies on his neighbors’ property.…
Ontario, Canada – Ontario police are asking for the public’s help in locating 32-year-old Timothy Bosma, who was last seen Monday after taking two men for a test drive in the pickup truck he was trying to sell online.
Bosma was reported missing by his wife Monday night after he never returned home from meeting two men interested in buying his black 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel pickup with the Ontario licence number 726 7ZW. On Thursday afternoon, police found Bosma’s cellphone in an industrial complex in west Brantford.
Police were able to track the cellphone they believed the suspects used to contact Bosma which led them to a man in Etobicoke. He told police he was also selling a truck and had met two men that he took on a test drive. He said the men were suspicious and he found it odd that they arrived at his business on foot. They did not buy the truck, and the man was not harmed.
“He thought it was odd, because of the size of the vehicle.…
CARY, NC — Police have charged 61-year-old Dottie Amtey with murder after they say she strangled her 77-year-old husband to death.
Police were dispatched to the home of Dottie and Shared after an unidentified woman called 911 Wednesday night. When police arrived at the home, they found Shared unconscious in an upstairs bedroom with someone on the phone with 911 trying to perform CPR in an unsuccessful attempt to revive him.
Police initially said Dottie would be charged with first-degree murder, but the Wake County District Attorney’s Office is considering charging her with second-degree murder.
The couple had been married for over 30 years and had five children together. Dottie was recently employed at UCB Pharma, and Shared was a research physicist, with career stops at universities and a massive government research project.
Cary officials say this is the first homicide they’ve had in their town in nearly two years.
While no motive has been released, there’s enough information in this article regarding the couple that makes it easy to speculate that this was probably some kind of mercy killing, and could also explain why prosecutors are considering the lesser murder charge.…
Sacramento, CA — A 31-year-old woman wants to quit smoking so badly, she allegedly bitch-slapped a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy earlier this week so she could go to jail, where smoking isn’t allowed. Makes perfect fucking sense.
According to the deputy involved, Matt Campoy, he was just minding his own business when he exited the main entrance of the main jail at the end of his watch Tuesday. The area outside the jail is apparently populated with people waiting around to see jailbirds and inmates recently released from custody, so Campoy didn’t think much of it when a woman stepped into his path.
“I stepped the left, she stepped to my left,” said Campoy. “I stepped to the right, she stepped to my right. I stepped to the left again and she suddenly stepped into me and slapped my face.”
Stunned, Campoy grabbed the woman’s hands and put her into a control hold and led her into the jail lobby. When he released the hold and placed her on a bench, she slapped his arm, he said.…
According to police, a 51-year-old man had been walking mid-block in the curb lane when Kristen Suggs plowed into him. Suggs then apparently fled the scene and called 911 to report that an “unknown suspect” threw an “unknown object” at her car, causing extensive damage.
By that time, medical personnel had responded to the scene of the “accident” and pronounced the man dead. His name has not yet been released.
When officers arrived to take Suggs’ report on the damage to her vehicle, they determined the damage was consistent with a recent vehicle/pedestrian collision, and she was placed under arrest.
Suggs was booked into jail and charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident. Police have reason to believe she was intoxicated at the time of the collision and DUI charges are pending.
I see a meme in this woman’s future.…
DARLINGTON, WI – Jaren Kuester, a 31-year-old man with a history of mental problems, has been arrested and charged with beating three elderly people to death with a fireplace poker.
According to reports, Kuester was arrested after threatening staff members at a Waukesha County animal shelter. Staff there said Kuester demanded that the dead dog he’d dropped off a few weeks earlier be returned to him alive. He told them they would pay with their lives when they did not oblige.
After making bail, he got in his vehicle and started driving, feeling as if his life was “crashing and burning” around him. After driving three counties away, he felt as if he was being followed, so he abandoned his vehicle, stripped off his clothes, and ran into the woods.
He ended up getting cold and broke into the farmhouse of Gary Thoreson, 70, and Chloe Thoreson, 66, who were not at home. After getting clothes, food, and searching for valuables, Kuester went to sleep on a bedroom floor.…
DALLAS, TX – Marlena Mints, a sex ed teacher and coach at Bessie Coleman Middle School, was arrested Wednesday morning after the 31-year-old was accused of having a sexual relationship with two of her students.
According to an arrest warrant, a 13-year-old student told another coach at the school that he’d had sexual contact with Mints. He said he was texting Mints one day and told her there was something wrong with his dick. Mints told him she would have to see it to know what was wrong with it, so he met Mints at the school where she examined the boy’s penis with her mouth.
The student would later tell police he has been allowed to touch her tits and ass on numerous occasions in her classroom in the presence of other students who were also allowed to do the same. Looking at her picture, I can just imagine these kids pawing on her as she excitedly exclaimed, “Ah ab godda ta neecho boke ooh neetah!”
A second student was also interviewed and he claimed he and Mints exchanged multiple messages via phone and the chat application Voxer, including Mints asking him if he liked white girls and initiating their first sexual encounter at her home in Cedar Hill.…
MOUNT HOPKINS, AZ – Lord knows I have reported on just about every horrifying death imaginable, but every now and then one comes around that has me thinking about the victim and muttering, “You poor, poor son of a bitch.”
On Monday, 55-year-old Steven Johnson was found dead in the Santa Rita Mountains hanging from his rappelling gear and covered in bee stings. The dog Johnson often took with him was also found dead and covered in bee stings on the cliff Johnson had rappelled from.
Johnson, an experienced hiker and mountain climber, was reportedly working an area of Mount Hopkins on Friday to prepare it for future climbers. Sheriff’s deputies went to search the site after he failed to show up for work on Monday.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine actual cause of death, but Santa Cruz County’s Lt. Raoul Rodriguez believes that Johnson may have disturbed a bees’ nest while hammering his ropes into the cliff. Some comments state that this is a terrible time of year in regards to bees, and some mentioned that the bees that attacked Johnson and his dog were probably the dreaded Africanized Honey Bee, aka the true Killer Bee.…
Oklahoma – Per a reader request that we report on more dildos, Ralph Polnicky says that after getting into an argument with a Tractor Supply Company employee, he received a large dildo in the mail with the words “Tractor Supply. Don’t Come Back,” and “Ralph is a Dick,” written in black.
Polnicky says that last year he went to the Tractor Supply Company in October of last year to complain about how long it took them to order a spool of bungee cord he’d ordered. An argument ensued between him and an employee inside the store and Polnicky claims that as he was leaving, a female employee shouted at him, “Don’t come back.”
Four months later, Polnicky gets a package in the mail that contained an 8-inch dildo with the words “Ralph Is A Dick,” “From the Tractor Supply,” and “Don’t Come Back” written on the sides. “We were aghast, I mean, we were absolutely shocked by what’s in this box,” Polnicky said about himself and his wife.
While it’s not a crime to send a sex toy in the mail, it could be possible to sue employer Tractor Supply for emotional damages.…
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – We just reported on the Florida father accused of slapping and spitting on his son’s alleged bully, now we have a father out of Colorado who has been accused of pepper spraying a group of teens who may have bullied his son.
Police say that on Sunday afternoon, the unidentified man pulled up next to four 13-year-old boys then sprayed them with pepper spray before driving away. Reportedly, this attack was in retaliation for the boys possibly physically assaulting his 8-year-old son.
Police said the man’s son claims he was assaulted by the kids in the apartment complex playground, and that they had tried to steal his skateboard. When he informed his father, the man jumped in his car and caught up with the boys a few blocks away and gave them the business.
Police have interviewed the father and plan on seeing if the teens can identify him from a photo lineup. The man has not been charged at this time, but authorities are considering he be charged with misdemeanor child abuse.…
MARION, ID – On Monday, 14-year-old Braylee Rice hanged herself with a necktie on the bleachers located behind McCulloch Junior High School.
School officials said around 9:00 am Monday morning, Rice snuck away from the gym during a break from ISTEP testing, then used a necktie she regularly wore to hang herself on the bleachers near the track.
Some reports state no one saw Rice commit suicide, but Jennifer Smith says her seventh grade son was walking around the track with other students and a teacher when they saw her jump from the bleachers.
“They heard a noise and looked over at the bleachers and she had jumped,” said Smith, who also said Braylee came to school Monday with a piece of paper taped over her mouth with a smiley face drawn on the tape.
Police are still investigating a motive, but as is usually the case whenever a teen kills themselves, allegations of school bullying immediately reared its ugly head. Police and school officials have said it is too early in the investigation to pinpoint bullying as a factor in Rice’s death.…
Ocenaside, CA – Tim Lambesis, the 32-year-old lead singer for the
jumbo shrimp Christian metal band As I Lay Dying, has been arrested and accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife.
Police received information last Thursday that Lambesis was “soliciting another individual” to kill his wife, Meggan, who filed for divorce last September. She currently lives in Encinitas with three Ethiopian children the couple had adopted.
According to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, “The Encinitas Detectives, The San Diego Fugitive Task Force and the Sheriff’s Special Investigation Division investigators immediately initiated an investigation. The investigation culminated this afternoon [Tuesday], when Lambesis solicited an undercover detective to kill his wife.”
In his defense, while the Bible is pretty clear that you should not kill anyone, it’s a bit hazy when it comes to hiring someone else to do it for you. Lambesis was arrested without incident, then booked into the Vista Detention Facility. His next court appearance should be today or tomorrow.
I’ve never listened to As I Lay Dying, or any religious themed band that doesn’t worship the devil, so I have no idea if they are any good or not.…
CASSELBERRY, FL — Allen Banyacksi is facing child abuse charges after he allegedly slapped one of his son’s bullies and spit in his face.
Banyacksi would not comment on the charges against him, but did go on camera to say that his son is being incessantly bullied at Helm Way West and that he feels helpless.
“I feel horrible that I can’t do more. That I can’t be at school every day to watch over him. To walk him through the hallways,” Banyacksi said. “I have four kids and he’s my youngest. He’s my baby. And we’ve watched him get bullied since the 4th grade. And when does it stop?”
According to a police report, Banyacksi confronted the two kids who were bullying his son as they walked home from school last Thursday. The boys told police Banyacksi pulled up along side them in his car and threatened to kill them.
One of the boys responded to Banyacksi’s threats by giving him the middle finger. Banyacksi allegedly responded by spitting in the boy’s face.…
Santa Fe, NM - An 18-year-old high school student claims he was raped by his horticulture teacher, 31-year-old Jennifer Vigil, in her classroom at Pojoaque Valley High School.
The student states Vigil pressured him into sex acts when he turned in an assignment to her after school. She allegedly locked the classroom door and said, “You’re not leaving until I get something from you.” He initially refused, but Vigil agreed to let him leave if he let her perform a sex act on him.
Vigil admits having sex with him in her classroom, but insists the sex was consensual. However the student told police that the idea of sex with her was “disgusting.” Harsh. Vigil claims he requested oral sex from her and that led to intercourse, and he again requested to have sex with her at a later date and she agreed. He took a picture with his cellphone of her blowing him and showed it to police.
These stories are now a dime a dozen; male teenage student, attractive-ish married female teacher, sex, everybody gasps thinking a woman would know better, men everywhere ask, “Where were these teachers when I was a student?” and the overwhelming response is, “You were too ugly” .…
KANSAS CITY, KS – On the same night five women burned to death inside a limo while celebrating a bachelorette party in California, Jamie Frecks died after falling out of a party bus while celebrating a bachelorette party in Kansas.
Frecks and 15 girlfriends were riding in the Midnight Express Party Bus when Frecks somehow fell out the emergency door and landed on I-35. Three vehicles then hit Fecks, two of which drove away from the scene. The 26-year-old, who just gave birth to her daughter six weeks ago, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger in the second car that struck Frecks said there just wasn’t enough time to avoid hitting Frecks’ body. Highway patrol are investigating how the vehicle’s emergency door opened, and are also looking for the drivers of the two vehicles that hit Frecks but drove off. If you have any information about the two drivers who left, call them or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
Frecks’ friends and family are holding a fundraiser on Wednesday in Loose Park.…
Chicago, IL – A 14-year-old boy was pepper sprayed and robbed after he arranged a sexual encounter with 22-year-old Dareka Brooks.
On Wednesday, the teen had the house to himself and decided this was a perfect time to hire himself a prostitute. So he went online and used a website often frequented for people trying to setup sexual encounters, and met Brooks.
After agreeing to the terms of their meeting, Brooks showed up at his home and instructed the teen to go to the bedroom and take off his pants. Once the teen was nekkid, Brooks entered the room and slaughtered the kid’s boner by allegedly pepper spraying him in the face.
She then made off with an iPad, a jar full of money, and the teen’s piggybank. The teen called police to report the robbery and gave them the description of Brooks’ car. Police were able to locate Brooks at a local motel after she turned on the iPad. The stolen items were recovered and returned to the teen.
Dareka Brooks was arrested and has been charged with one count of armed robbery.…
Newport News, VA - Carl Cottee Jr., 23, has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter, according to police.
Police were called to a home where Cottee had been caring for Madyson Van Cleave Hook while her mother was out. There they found the girl in a bedroom not breathing and showing signs of trauma to her body, according to police spokesperson Holly McPherson.
The child was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead from blunt head trauma. Madyson’s grandmother was initially told the girl’s death was an accident, and that Madyson got dizzy after taking a bath, passed out and then hit her head.
But that does not explain the bruises and multiple skull fractures the family would later learn the girl had suffered. “It’s horrible I just can’t imagine her going through that pain,” her grandmother said. “I can hear her saying, ‘I love my Nan Nan.'”
Want to hear something infuriating? Madyson’s grandmother also said there was suspicion the girl was being abused after Madyson complained of being locked in a dresser and being left alone.…
California – Just when I thought I’ve covered just about every horrible death imaginable, five women died inside a burning limo while out celebrating the upcoming wedding of one of the victim, 31-year-old Neriza Fojas.
While crossing the San Mateo-Hayward bridge Saturday night, the white stretch Lincoln caught on fire. The driver, 46-year-old Orville Brown, pulled over when the women got his attention, thinking the women were asking him to stop so they could smoke.
“She said, ‘No smoke – smoke smoke…pull over pull over pull over,'” Brown recalled. “I saw the smoke, pulled over, by the time I was getting out the car there was a lady coming over the partition.”
He said he helped three other women escape the fiery limo, but was unable to help the bride-to-be and four other women. They ended up trapped inside and were all killed in the fire.
Police would later say that the victims were burned beyond recognition and had to be identified by their dental records. County coroner Robert Foucrault told NBC that the victims were found lying on top of each other, with one dying while trying to climb through the partition that separates the passenger compartment from the driver’s.…
