On Oct 17th, 44-year-old Reyes broke into the home of his his estranged wife who had recently filed for divorce. The couple married in 2009 and had three children together, but were no longer together.
The woman was able to flee the house with three of her children and her boyfriend, but Reyes took her 2-year-old daughter hostage. Reyes was not the father of the toddler and, over a course of three hours, repeatedly pointed a gun at police as well as the girl.
After negotiations with Reyes failed, an order was given to shoot Reyes in the head if presented with the opportunity. That opportunity came at around 3 a.m. as Reyes came out on a balcony holding the girl with one hand and a gun in the other.
Officer Jason Lawless took aim and shot Reyes in the head, dropping him instantly.…
Mary Gaspar admitted to police that she got angry with her boyfriend, FIU senior tight end Jonnu Smith, for not paying enough attention to her.
The two had been arguing all day and while “feeling extremely emotional and stressed,” she boiled the water and attacked him with it in his dorm. When Smith did not react the way she wanted, she began hitting him.
Smith was taken to the hospital suffering from severe burns to his head, neck, back, shoulder and arm. Not only do these injuries sideline Smith, a prospect in next year’s NFL Draft, they could very well end his promising career.
Smith made the mid-season John Mackey Award watch list in 2014 and 2015, and the pre-season Mackey Award watch list in 2015 and 2016. Early NFL Draft projections have Smith as a late-round pick or un-drafted free agent.…
Police responded to a residence on a domestic disturbance call last month to find 69-year-old Joyce Courson sitting in the hallway in a puddle of blood.
She was suffering from severe cuts and bruises to her face and more on her stomach and chest.
Courson told the officers that her grandson, Brougham, had flew into a rage because she’d taken his beer and wouldn’t tell him where she hid it.
She said he first punched several holes in the walls before shoving her to the floor. That’s when Brougham held her down and repeatedly punched her in the face, then started kicking her.
Another roommate in the house ran out of his room to investigate when he heard the woman yelling for help, but Brougham had already left the home.
Police would find the teen walking near the home and took him into custody. He told police that when he gets upset, “he blacks out in rage and does not remember what he does.”
Initially charged with aggravated battery, Brougham has now been charged with murder after Courson died from her injuries one week later.…
The incident happened Monday morning outside the county courthouse after the 60-year-old woman and her estranged husband had left the nearby Family Law Center.
A bailiff who was in the courtroom with the man and his wife during their divorce hearing said there were no outbursts during the proceeding that would have foreshadowed what happened next.
Surveillance footage showed the woman leaving the building, getting in her car and then positioning it.
As her estranged husband left the building and was crossing the street with his lawyer and a female friend, the woman accelerated towards them and mowed them down in the crosswalk.
As the three victims lay injured in the street, the woman reversed the vehicle and made a point to hit the female victim a second time.
Bystanders tried stopping the woman by breaking the driver-side window, but she sped off. She first tried driving her car off the Benicia Bridge by repeatedly driving into the barrier, but ended up parking the car and jumping off instead.…

The woman told responding police that the blow knocked her to the ground and rendered her unconscious for a short time.
Badgley told police he had been drinking earlier, but refused to give his side of the story.…
We first reported on Amber Hilberling back in 2011 after her she pushed her husband, Joshua, through a plate glass window. Police would charge her with murder after Joshua’s fall was stopped by a garage roof 17 floors below.
Hilberling was 19-years-old and seven months pregnant at the time, and went on the news circuit claiming her innocence. This included an appearance on “Dr. Phil” where she claimed her husband’s death was an accident — the result of self-defense and thin windows.
However, a conversation between her and her grandmother in a police interrogation room captured Hilberling calling herself a “horrible person” and asking what kind of person would push her husband out of a window. She also says her husband was messing with a television when she shoved him through the window.
There was also the fact that her husband had filed an emergency protective order against her before his death, claiming she was physically abusive towards him and had brained him so hard with a lamp that he had to get staples and stitches.…
Police spokesman Sam Clemens says 45-year-old Tony Ledbetter attacked his girlfriend during an argument about their relationship.
He allegedly punched the 39-year-old woman, slammed her head on the ground and tried to get her to stop screaming by choking her with his forearm and shoving a blanket in her mouth.
Not quite finished, police say he then retrieved a pair of scissors and sat on her before using the scissors to cut off the woman’s nipples. The woman was able to break free and run outside of the home for help.
The woman was taken to the hospital, while Ledbetter was taken to jail on 8 counts of aggravated assault/domestic abuse. He was in court on Thursday where a judge ordered him held on a $250,000 cash-only bond.
“We believe that sort of brutality that was involved with this particular offense warranted a much higher cash bond than we would normally see in an aggravated assault case,” said Thomas Wollman, Lincoln County’s State’s Attorney.…
According to police, Monord admitted she was pissed at her sleeping boyfriend over some “infidelity issues” and decided to give him an “abrupt awakening.”
After boiling some water in a pot normally used to sterilize their son’s bottles, she tossed the water on 23-year-old Winsky Perpignan as he was in bed under the covers. He ended up suffering significant burns to his right arm, upper torso, stomach, back and face.
What Monord did not realize, for some reason, was that her boyfriend was not alone in the bed. Their son was sleeping beside him and was also doused with the boiling water. The baby ended suffering second-degree burns to his chest and left arm that could require skin grafting.
After initially denying purposefully pouring the water on her boyfriend, she finally admitted the truth.
“In the beginning of the investigation, she said it was an accident, but we found some inconsistencies in the story there and started digging a little deeper, and that’s when we were able to determine it was an intentional act and that she had done it on purpose,” Gainesville Police Department spokesman Officer Ben Tobias said.…
On Thursday, officers visited 23-year-old Davie Dauzat and his 21-year-old wife, Natasha, at their mobile home after Duazat’s brother-in-law called and asked them to perform a welfare check.
According to police, the brother explained that he wasn’t sure if Dauzat’s “weird statements” and “funny questions” were drug related.
Police spoke with the couple outside of their mobile home and left after finding nothing apparently wrong.
“There was no indication from Natasha or Davie that either of them was in distress or in need of police intervention at that time. They both appeared calm and expressed their curiosity why the police were there,” according to police.
Two hours later, Dauzat’s brother-in-law called police again to report Duazat had killed Natasha. When officers arrived back at the couple’s home they found Dauzat barricaded inside with his two toddlers, ages 1 and 2.
A hostage negotiator was brought in and Dauzat eventually came out of the trailer, covered in blood, and taken into custody.…
Police say they received a 911 call from the residence Saturday night after someone there said 27-year-old Derrick Dearman was trespassing on their property.
Dearman was on the property because his girlfriend, Laneta Lester, had gone to the house to stay with her sister in order to get away from Dearman and their “abusive relationship.”
Police arrived on the scene but were unable to locate Dearman and left. Hours later, police say Dearman returned to the home and used multiple weapons, including a gun, to attack the occupants as they were sleeping.
When he was done, Dearman had brutally murdered five people. The victims are Robert Lee Brown, 26; Chelsea Marie Reed, 22, who was five months pregnant; Justin Kaleb Reed, 23; Joseph Adam Turner, 26; Shannon Melissa Randall, 35.
Dearman then kidnapped Lester and a three-month-old infant and drove them to his father’s house in Mississippi.…
Police were called to an apartment early Wednesday morning after 20-year-old Milina Harris threw boiling water on her sleeping mother before stabbing her multiple times.
Harris’ mom, 47-year-old Tamara Joyner, was rushed to Vidant Medical Center with life-threatening injuries where she would die later that afternoon.
Harris, who was initially charged with attempted first degree murder, has been charged with first-degree murder. She is currently in the Pitt County Detention Center on a $2 million bond.
When Harris made her first appearance before a judge, she wore chains, handcuffs and a padded green cover up used for people who are at risk of suicide.
A motive isn’t known at this time and the investigation is still ongoing. Whatever the reasoning, you got to really, really hate someone to pour boiling water on them while they are sleeping and then start stabbing them.

According to reports, 42-year-old Patrick Thompson became upset with a shirt that his teen daughter was wearing because he felt it was Satanic.
Thompson, the owner of Raging Cajun Smoking Barbecue, instructed his daughter to take off the shirt and bring it to a traveling BBQ trailer he had parked outside the home.
After burning the shirt in the smoker, Thompson instructed his family that God had commanded he now sacrifice a male.
Since God didn’t specify what species of male needed to be sacrificed, and Thompson didn’t want to sacrifice himself or his 6-year-old son, he decided to sacrifice the family’s 15 pound poodle.
As his family pleaded with him not to harm the dog, Thompson broke the dog’s neck. But this wasn’t to God’s satisfaction, Thompson would later tell police. The dog needed to be put in a “lake of fire.” That’s when he put the dog in the smoker.…
Now that more details have come out, a clearer picture of events has emerged that shows why a Fort Hood soldier has been charged with the shooting death of a Good Samaritan in a Walgreens’ parking lot.
Quinisha Jones said she was surprised to see her husband of two months, 22-year-old Ricci Bradden, show up outside the Walgreens where she worked because he was supposed to be at Fort Hood. Turns out her husband was angry over a selfie she had posted on Facebook and had come to her work to confront her about it.
“He was just saying I was tripping, and I wanted attention from other people and attention from my husband just wasn’t enough,” Johnson said. “And I was trying to explain it to him, that I married you. You’re all the attention that I needed. And I could feel that he was getting mad, so I tried to walk off, and that’s when I heard him pull the gun out.”
Bradden fired two shots at her feet — the second shot hitting her ankle.…
