SEATTLE, WA – Alicia Goemaat is facing murder charges after police say she kicked her boyfriend’s 17-month-old son to death.
According to reports, 26-year-old Goemaat was watching her toddler son along with Drue Lehto, the 17-month-old son of her boyfriend.
The toddlers got into an argument over a toy and, according to Goemaat’s own admission, she kicked Drue in the stomach. After the boy fell down, she kicked him again, causing fatal abdominal injuries.
One week before Drue was kicked to death, he was taken to Seattle Children’s Hospital to treat “bruises and scratches that did not appear to be normal for a toddler.”
According to the police report, Goemaat is a drug addict who would often scream at Drue. Friends of the couple also said Goematt “would become extremely agitated when the victim cried and would physically punish him by spanking him or ‘flicking’ him on his body when he cried.”
Goemaat’s ex-boyfriend said he was shocked at the news, stating he never saw Goemaat act aggressive towards his kids.…
URIE, WY — Joseph Richardson and Paulette Richardson are facing manslaughter charges after they let Paulette’s 16-year-old son drink until he died from alcohol poisoning.
According to court documents, Paulette’s son, Kendal Ball, had been expressing a desire to drink. Paulette would tell police that the boy’s biological father was an alcoholic and she was afraid her son would turn out like him.
In order to stop that from happening, the couple came up with a genius plan to let the kid drink. Joseph would explain later that he was told the best way to stop the boy from drinking would be to let him drink until he got sick.
So on the night July 6, Ball started drinking with his step-father and a family friend. How much the kid drank in a two hour time-span all depends on who you ask.
Paulette said her son drank a few shots of Fireball and a few shots of Jack Daniel’s. Joseph said his stepson drank a few ounces of Jack Daniel’s.…
PONTIAC, MI – Police have arrested 47-year-old Henry Michael for allegedly stabbing his son-in-law after the victim found Michael and his daughter, the victim’s wife, lying naked in bed together.
Police were called to the hospital where a 25-year-old man was brought in suffering from a non-life threatening stab wound to his back. The man would tell police that he had come home at around 3:30 a.m. and found his wife sleeping in the bed with her father, and both of them were completely nude.
When he woke up Micheal, an argument ensued that led to Michael stabbing his son-in-law before fleeing in the victim’s vehicle. After interviewing the victim, police located Michael’s 24-year-old daughter who told them that after going out drinking with her father, they returned home where she passed out.
She said she didn’t know what happened until her husband woke her up, but doesn’t believe her father sexually assaulted her. She was transported to the Haven START Program for an examination before being taken to a relative’s home.…
Howell called 911 last year to report her 17-month-old daughter, Jaslynn Mansfield, was not breathing. The baby was rushed to the hospital where she would later die of acute methadone toxicity.
After police found a baby bottle in Jaslynn’s room contained methadone, Howell would admit that on the day her daughter died, she had given the baby methadone to help her go to sleep.
What makes that fact so tragic is that had she told emergency workers this when her daughter was brought to the hospital, they very well could have saved her life.
According to the child’s grandmother, Howell knew the dangers of the drug as Jaslynn was born addicted to it and her father died from a methadone overdose a few months before she was born.
In July, Howell would plea guilty to second-degree manslaughter and causing a child to be exposed to a controlled substance.…
LINCOLN COUNTY, KY – Police in Kentucky have arrested 44-year-old Michael May after he was caught trying to dig up his father’s grave so he could argue with the dead man’s corpse.
Lincoln County constable Delbert Mitchell noticed a truck parked at the Pilot Baptist Church cemetery at around 10:30 p.m. Monday night and went to investigate. He would find May using a shovel and a pickaxe to dig up his father’s grave.
Mitchell said that when he asked May what in the hell he was doing, May began “hollering out verses” from the Bible and explained that he was trying to dig up his old man in order for his deceased father to go to heaven.
May’s father died more than three decades ago after being beaten to death at a sawmill while drinking with co-workers. According to Greg Haynes, the pastor of Pilot Baptist Church, May explained that his “Daddy didn’t do things right,” and he needed to be dug up in order to go to Heaven.
“He needs to be on the ground.…

One of Ferris’ neighbors called police at around 8 p.m. Saturday night to report she had found Ferris’ twin toddler sons playing in the rain near a lake. She took the 2-year-old’s back to their mother’s apartment, but no one was home.

Inside the apartment, all three bedrooms were locked, a bookshelf was toppled over in the middle of the family room, and an unlocked bathroom contained a pile of toys and some toxic toilet bowl cleaner.

TOULOUSE, FRANCE – Three French students have been accused of murdering a fellow student then, inspired by an episode of Breaking Bad, trying to dissolve her body in acid.
The three men, one 19 and the other two in their 20s, had recently began making their money by selling amphetamines to other students.
Last month, two of the three students went to the apartment of 23-year-old Eva Bourseau to collect approximately $6500 in drug money she owed them.
When they found out she did not have the money, they beat her to death with a crowbar and brass knuckles. In order to get rid of the body they decided to dissolve it in a plastic bin full of acid. One of the accused would later tell police they got the idea from watching Breaking Bad.
Figuring her body would dissolve in a few days, the geniuses bought a plastic bin, stuffed Bourseau’s body in it, then poured acid over her corpse. They would revisit the woman’s apartment over the next couple of days to check on the progress of their Soupe au Bourseau, steal some items, and replace air fresheners they were using to mask the smell of their work.…
NAMPA, ID – Regina Dilworth, 22, was arrested after she got high on bath salts then tried baptizing her baby in an irrigation ditch because God told her it was possessed.
After injecting herself with a cocktail of bath salts and Dilaudid, Dilworth woke up the next morning and walked out of the house carrying her infant and followed by her 4-year-old.
She told detectives that she was “following the light” when God began speaking to her. Instead of telling her to clean her house, keep her legs closed and become a productive member of society, God told her that her children were possessed and that she needed to baptize her infant.
After walking to an intersection a mile from her home in an attempt to rid her children of demons, Dilworth tried giving her 4-year-old daughter to a stranger, saying “save my girl.” She then jumped into a nearby canal with her baby while her 4-year-old stood crying on the bank.
Although the ditch is only 3 feet wide and 10 inches deep, Dilworth was fully submerged in the water and her baby was submerged up to her neck when two witnesses arrived to pull them both out. …
TRAFFORD, AL – Police have arrested 23-year-old Misty Wright and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Johnathon Talley, after Wright’s 3-year-old daughter was found unconscious in a pool of her own vomit.
On Monday, Wright and Talley called 911 after finding Jettie Adams laying in a pool of vomit on a mattress on the porch of their trailer. Paramedics rushed the girl to the hospital where she would be pronounced dead.
An autopsy would reveal the girl died from severe internal injuries – the result of being repeatedly struck in the chest, abdomen and head.
“She was hit was such force her intestines were damaged,” said Chief Deputy Randy Christian, adding that she likely suffered a long, painful death all alone after going out to the porch to lie down on the mattress where she stayed all night. “It’s the saddest case I can recall.”
Several children found living in the trailer were placed into the custody of the Department of Human Resources. Neighbors say they didn’t know the family well, but the law is very familiar with Talley.…
Sometime after Giancherio purchased some alcohol from a liquor store and returning home, a neighbor called police to report she just watched Giancherio drive off with her young daughter standing on the driver’s side running board.
The neighbor said the girl was yelling and banging on the window as her mother simply gazed at her daughter and continued driving. The girl eventually fell off the truck and landed in the road. Giancherio simply drove away.
“I went over to check on her and her knees are all cut up, she’s on the curb just crying, and the mom is already gone, just drove off, she didn’t stop or look down,” said the neighbor.
The girl begged the neighbor not to call police on her mother, but they did anyway. When officers arrived, Giancherio had already returned home and parked her truck in the garage.…
BIRMINGHAM, AL – Police have arrested 80-year-old Matthew Moore after he allegedly gunned down his daughter for not buying him alcohol.
The incident happened Friday night when Moore and his 47-year-old daughter, Chrystol Moore, got into an argument over alcohol – Matthew wanted some, and Chrystol refused to go get it.
This pissed the elderly man off so much that he pulled out a gun and shot his daughter multiple times. When police arrived at the home, they found Chrystol Moore dead and Matthew Moore sitting at the kitchen table nearby.
Chrystol’s 13-year-old daughter was in the home at the time of the shooting, but was not harmed. Physically, at least. Mathew Moore was arrested in the death of his daughter and placed in the Jefferson County Jail on a $40,000 bond.
Moore sure is one ornery old fella, but he ain’t got nothin’ on John Wesley Hardin — a man so mean he once shot a man just for snoring.…
HILLSBOROUGH, NC — Chandler Kania, 20, has been charged with three counts of second-degree murder after his drunk ass drove the wrong way on the interstate and killed three people in a head-on collision.
According to prosecutors, Kania went to at least two different bars the night of the crash, and used a fake ID that allowed him to buy alcohol. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student got so hammered that five people tried to stop him from getting behind the wheel of his Jeep Wrangler.
This led to a physical confrontation with one person being knocked to the ground. They were only able to get his cell phone, but they figured this would keep him from leaving – but they were wrong. Kania ended up driving his Jeep on the wrong side of I-85 for at least 6 miles before colliding with a Suzuki driven by 49-year-old Felecia Harris.
Harris, 46-year-old Darlene McGee, and Harris’ granddaughter, 6-year-old Jahnice Baird, were all killed in the crash. Harris’ daughter, 9-year-old Jahnia King, was seriously injured but has since been released from the hospital.…
AUGUSTA, GA – Tabathia Grooms helped bolster a few stereotypes regarding Georgians after she attacked her boyfriend, Carlos Grace, because he declined to have sex with her.
According to reports, the 35-year-old came home around 11:30 p.m. after a night of drinking. She was still fuming because, earlier in the day, Grace had refused to kiss that colostomy bag she calls a mouth.
As Grace sat on a couch, Grooms informed him that she’d went out and “fucked everyone else because he would not fuck her,” then physically attacked him. During the assault, Grooms allegedly scratched Grace on the face, head and neck and bit him on the arm before he was able to lock himself in the bathroom and call 911.
When police arrived, they reported that Grooms was “highly intoxicated” and refused to explain what had happened. She did admit to drinking and threatened to run a deputy over with a baby stroller if he did not move out of her way.
While at the residence, Grooms’ 66-year-old mother took one of the officers aside and told them that her daughter had punched her in the face during her tirade.…
CALAIS, ME — Devon Staples was killed while celebrating Fourth of July with friends after he tried to launch a firework off the top of his head.
The 22-year-old was drinking with friends in the backyard of a home Saturday night, when he got the bright idea to launch a reloadable fireworks mortar tube from the top of his head.
Despite his friends’ warnings not to do something so goddamn stupid and irresponsible, Staples did it anyway. According to Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety, Staples was killed instantly when the firework exploded.
Staples’ brother was only a few feet away when the firework exploded and said there was nothing they could do to help Staples afterwards.
“There was no rushing him to the hospital. There was no Devon left when I got there,” said Cody Staples.
Aside from the Darwin Award nomination, Staples is also the first fireworks fatality in Maine since they legalized them on Jan. 1, 2012. Until that day, fireworks had been illegal in Maine for over 50 years.…
On Friday night, Small was with friends drinking around a rock-lined fire pit in his backyard. By 2 a.m. Saturday, he was alone and somehow managed to fall into the fire.
Although he suffered serious burns to 60 percent of his body, Smalls didn’t think it was worth seeking medical treatment.
““Small managed to stagger into his home, refused medical attention and went to bed,” according to Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland. His friends ended up calling an ambulance for him several hours later.
Small was taken to the Maine Medical Center in Portland before being transferred to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He would die there Sunday evening.
This brings up one of the most horrifying stories I have ever written on the site, from five years ago. It happened in Arizona where a 45-year-old man and his cousin were drinking while preparing a 3-foot deep fire pit to roast a pig.…
SALEM, OR – Rudi Espinoza, 24, has been arrested for working out any issues he had with his mother’s cat by lopping off its head.
According to reports Espinoza knocked on his neighbor’s door at midnight, dressed only in boxers, covered in scratches and blood. The neighbor called 911. When the police arrived Espinoza answered the door still covered in blood in his boxers acting strangely as if he were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Officers would note that Espinoza was covered in claw and bite marks. Upon further investigation the headless body of his mother’s cat would be found inside his residence. It was noted the cat’s tail was also broken. A kitchen knife found at the scene is believed to be the weapon he used to kill the cat.
When questioned, Espinoza told deputies that he had killed the cat, “…because it was evil and nosy.” It has been alleged that his motivation for killing the cat was to cause his mother pain, which I’m positive he succeeding in doing.…
WESTLAKE, OH – Alexandria Mauer and Kenneth Gillespie were arrested this weekend after police found the classy duo tooling around town drunk and naked.
Police were called at 12:22 a.m. Saturday after the two were spotted standing naked outside their vehicle. The caller reported that the couple had returned to the car and driven away, running over a curb and across a lawn in the process.
Police found 24-year-old Mauer in the driver’s seat, naked, drunk, and holding a piece of pizza, while the passenger’s seat was occupied by 33-year-old Gillespie, who also was drunk and naked. He had an open beer between his feet. She’s facing a drunk driving charge; Gillespie is looking at disorderly conduct while intoxicated, open container, and public indecency charges.
Proving himself to be a bit of a cliché, Gillespie pissed in the back seat of the cruiser on the way to the police station.
Mauer was released to a family member but was found wandering down a road (partially dressed this time) after arguing with her ride, leading to yet another arrest and a disorderly conduct charge.…
AUSTIN, TX – Alvaro Benitez and Araceli Mata-Ortiz are facing felony child endangerment charges after police pulled over a vehicle for reported reckless driving to discover one set of drunk parents, a 13-year-old in the driver’s seat, and a 7-year-old girl who was not driving and apparently wasn’t drunk.
At some point after 11:00 p.m. Friday, police were called about a Chevy pickup that was running red lights, weaving back and forth, and driving 25-30 MPH below the posted 70 MPH limit on I-35. Another motorist claimed that the silver truck had almost caused at least three collisions.
According to authorities, the young driver reported that the family had been at Club Vongos, where she observed her parents were too inebriated to drive and suggested that she drive, since she felt that would be the safer option.
As drunk people tend to do, the girl’s parents made a stupid decision and later said something stupid about that decision: as to the former, the parents said they thought it was smart for them not to drive while intoxicated and thus elected to have their 13-year-old daughter (who had little experience operating a vehicle) take the wheel for the 30-something-minute drive home to Georgetown.…
