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.…
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, OH – A naked 17-year-old, was shot with a shotgun after attempting to break into homes looking for women to rape – keeps jerking it while being arrested.
The teen was seen attempting to break into several houses by witnesses, screaming obscenities, before successfully breaking into the house of an unnamed married couple. The husband held the bare-assed teen at gunpoint while his wife called 911 for help.
She was heard by 911 operators pleading with him to keep his distance repeatedly. “I never said you were gay, honey. I believe you, I believe you. Stay away from me. Stay away from me. Please, please.” She warned him that he would be shot if he didn’t keep his distance.
He reached for her throat at which point her husband shot him in the back, hitting his wife in the eye and shoulder in the process. Propelled as if shot out of a pinball machine, he began running around bouncing off of walls. The husband ran for towels to help control the bleeding, when he returned he found the weirdo had retreated to his porch to teach his dick a lesson while simultaneously bleeding out.…
ID – Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office arrested 23-year-old Shariah Whitney after she crashed a car containing herself, her 5-year-old daughter, and a 15-year-old family friend, thus ending an alleged incident of drunken street racing.
As KXLY reports, witnesses reported two vehicles driving side-by-side 70 to 80 miles an hour down a residential road Sunday night.
The so-called street race was terminated when Whitney’s car went off the road, ran over a stop sign, hit the parked car belonging to Rex Hyatt’s in-laws, and came to rest on the lawn of Hyatt’s home.
All the makings of senseless tragedy right here: not just drunken driving but high-speed drunken driving and a car crash. Color me SMH in wonder, because no one was injured.
Whitney’s husband Nathan is disputing the version of events offered by law enforcement, however, claiming that the crash was caused not by street racing but by Shariah attempting to pass a car on a road unfamiliar to her. He further indicated that his wife didn’t have more than two drinks on Sunday.…
Police responded to a 911 call from the little girl’s uncle. When they arrived they found the dead body of the child covered in bruises and weighing only 15lbs.
A thorough examination of the girl’s body revealed cuts and bruises all over her body in various stages of healing, a 1-inch laceration to her head that exposed her skull, a broken knee and evidence that she had been sexually assaulted.
The parents both deny causing the injuries, although Velazco does admit to punishing her with a belt but only using “measured strength” as to not knock down the child.
During an interview with Cruz, who only speaks Spanish, he denied any knowledge about Alexandra’s other injuries telling investigators to, “ask his wife” and “not knowing the truth” about how they happened. Cruz did admit that the daughter’s weight loss was concerning and started after she had a fall in the tub. …
WHITE CLOUD, MI – Matthew Bradley, 27, has been arrested for concealing the death of his 4-month-old daughter after police found her body hidden in her grandmother’s basement.
The baby, Natallya Rich, was last seen alive Saturday with Bradley when he was to be caring for her while her mother, Brittany Rich, worked. When Rich came home, he told her the baby was sleeping.
He then said Natallya was at a babysitter’s house before claiming she was in the care of his sister, Stephanie Wert. Bradley assured Rich by having his sister cover for him and say that Natallya was with her.
Bradley’s sister claims that he came to her on Tuesday asking her to say she had her because he and Rich were fighting. Wert said that nothing seemed out of the norm with Bradley other than he was a little upset about his relationship issues.
Four days after Natallya went missing, police took Bradley and Rich in for questioning and Bradley finally revealed the location of Natallya – she was dead in her car seat, hidden in a crawlspace in his mother’s basement.…
FREDERICK, MD- Brittany Ann Sapp, 23, was charged twice for drugs after a traffic stop; once for it being in her car and once for it being inside in her vagina.
Sapp was pulled over for a traffic violation by a police officer with a K-9 Unit. During the stop, the K-9 detected narcotics inside Sapp’s car. She was arrested for possession of heroin and taken to Fredrick County Adult Detention Center where she was processed.
Fredrick County, who is way ahead of the jails I’ve seen the inside of, used a body scanner in lieu of a cavity search and detected 1.7 grams of heroin in a baggie tucked all up inside Sapp’s coochie.
Sapp was charged with possession of heroin and possession of contraband in a place of confinement. Sapp was later taken to the hospital after showing symptoms of ingesting some of the heroin. She has been released on bail.
This incident would have been a lot cooler if the dog was the one to locate the contraband. …
Police began receiving phone calls regarding a Schwaub-DeVault driving the wrong way down U.S. 127 at around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday. Despite repeated attempts to get her to pull over, she wasn’t arrested until five miles later after running from her vehicle butt nekkid.
“I know when the deputies started to chase the driver, as the driver exited the vehicle, the person was not clothed,” Clare County Undersheriff Dwayne Miedzianowski said.
When police went went to the rest area from where the pursuit originated, they would find Schwaub-DeVault’s husband, 32-year-old Joshua Devault, and their child. Both of them were naked as well.
The couple were both arrested and charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure and child abuse, while Schwaub-DeVault was also charged with driving under the influence, and a felony charge of running from police.
Investigators still have no idea what happened at the rest area that led to Schwaub-DeVault driving off, or why the entire family was naked.…
DALLAS, TX – Police have arrested 28-year-old Alicia Carroll after they say she left her 7-year-old daughter in a dumpster overnight.
According to Dallas police, Carroll and her daughter left the King Spa & Sauna about 10 p.m. Saturday.
Carroll began to run, telling her daughter that the police where after them, and instructed her daughter to climb in a nearby dumpster.
The girl fell asleep inside the dumpster while waiting for her mother to come get her, and woke up 10 hours later. As she began walking back towards the spa, Carroll was calling police to report her child was missing.
Carroll told police that she had drinks at the spa and left her daughter with a friend to “clear her head” and that the refused to return her child. The friend contradicted Carroll’s statements, telling police that she witnessed Carroll leaving the spa with her daughter and that Carroll was “highly intoxicated.”
Police began searching for the child and were alerted by some people at the spa who had located Carroll’s daughter.…
TRONDHEIM, NORWAY – A 26-year-old man from Norway is facing seven years in jail after feeding his ex-girlfriend, who was pregnant with his child, a smoothie laced with an abortion drug.
The pair had a short relationship and a child together already, but were no longer together when they met at a party and decided to scrump. This resulted in the woman getting pregnant with his second child and the man suffering from some serious post bang regret.
“He tried several times to convince me to have an abortion but it was not an option for me,” the woman told the court in Trondheim.
Feeling that he had no way out, the man researched abortive medications and purchased the drugs online. He gave the woman the pills under the guise that they were over-the-counter pain killers. His first attempt was unsuccessful and evident at a pregnancy check-up which showed the baby was still developing. He freaked knowing that if a developing child were exposed to these drugs they could be born with severe deformities.…
PORT ORANGE, FL — A 17-year-old student at Spruce Creek High School was taken into custody Monday after selling some hash oil brownies to fellow students that sent some of them to the hospital.
According to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, the teen sold seven hash oil brownies at school for five bucks each. He told the buyers that the brownies were potent and shouldn’t be eaten at one time.
At least 10 students ate the brownies, with four of them possibly not heeding the teen’s advice and becoming so sick that they required hospitalization. “One of the students was so impaired on Monday that he could barely speak,” deputies said in a hilarious statement.
The student who allegedly brought the batch of brownies was taken into custody after being chased by a campus official and tossing 11 more brownies into a trash can. He’s been charged with four counts of sale and delivery of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and seven counts of culpable negligence.
Last year, because of our asinine drug laws, a 19-year-old with a spotless record was facing life behind bars in Texas after he got busted selling hash oil brownies.…
BALDWIN TOWNSHIP, MN – Michael Gunderson, 32, is facing charges after his two children were found by their mother starving in a crib, and one of them appearing to eat feces.
The children’s mother left for Utah for work, leaving the toddlers, ages 2 and 3, in the care of Gunderson. When she returned two months later, she found the kids alone in a crib inside a home that smelled like piss and was littered with trash and dog shit.
Even worse, the children were “weak and thin” with their rib cages clearly defined. One “appeared to be trying to eat feces,” while another was too weak to even walk.
The mother took her kids to the hospital where medical personnel noted that the children had sores on their bodies and “were diagnosed as being severely malnourished and subject to starvation.” The kids were immediately given fluids by IV, and police were notified about the conditions of the children.
When police interviewed Gunderson, he admitted he left the children at home so he could go to work.…
BESSEMER, AL – Bessemer police have charged Cassie Townsend after the two-year-old she was caring for died from drinking a grape soda spiked with the woman’s methadone.
Police say that around 1 a.m. Saturday morning, Townsend rushed Demonie Hendon to the hospital after realizing the grape soda she spiked with methadone was missing and Hendon was acting sick.
For those of you unaware, methadone is a medication that reduces withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotic drugs. It allows the addict to get high without the associated drug addiction. Methadone is normally not supposed to leave the clinic from where it is dispensed.
By time Hendon was admitted to the hospital, he was unresponsive and placed on life support. Townsend, who is the boy’s aunt or godmother, bonded out of jail after initially being charged with chemical endangerment of a child that morning.
However, Hendon was taken off of life support on Monday, and Townsend was arrested again, charged with chemical endangerment resulting in death. Townsend is currently in the Jefferson County Jail on a $60,000 bond.…
Apoka, FL – Trinity Bachmann, 13, was hit and killed by a car while sitting in the middle of the road throwing a temper tantrum.
The Apopka Memorial Middle School student was returning from the Central Florida Fair in Orlando with her mother, Janice Pedroza, 36, and a group of her friends. Bachmann, a rising member of the Future Farmers of America, was at the fair showing off her pig.
After stopping to drop off one of the kids, they began to fight over who was going to sit in the front seat. Bachmann became upset and walked away from the vehicle telling her mom she would rather walk the three miles home than get back in the car.
Dressed in dark clothing, Bachmann walked into the middle of a barely lit road and sat down. Her mother tried to force her off the road as a car approached, but they were too late.
Jackie Suggs who lives across the street from where the incident took place said, “We heard arguing going on and stepped outside.…
SLIDELL, LA – Police have arrested 34-year-old Brett Flower after they say he poured beer down a 1-year-old boy’s throat multiple times because he thought it was funny.
A witness reported the incident to the state Department of Child Services after they watched it happen at a family gathering.
Police were called and questioned friends and family of Flower and the boy’s 23-year-old mother, Krysten Verdin.
Investigators were told that on several occasions Flower poured beer down the boy’s throat, causing the boy to choke and throw it up.
This would irritate Verdin who, according to a press release, would “become agitated and slap the child on the back of the head, causing him to fall on the floor.’
When interviewed by police Flower, who is not the boy’s father, admitted to making his girlfriend’s son drink beer. He wasn’t trying to harm the boy, he said. He “just thought it would be funny,” said Detective Daniel Seuzeneau.
According to Seuzeneau, Verdin confirmed that her boyfriend had poured beer down her son’s throat, but did not admit that ever hit her kid.…
Tacoma, WA – Wallace Jackson, 48, Crystal Jackson, 30, and Darrel Daves, 49, have all been arrested for murder after the dismembered and rotting body of 18-year-old Jesus Isidor-Mendoza was found in a ravine in Tacoma.
Isidor-Mendoza was last seen Oct 22nd leaving his mother’s home to attend a class at Pierce College. She never saw him again and reported him missing in November. On Feb 8th police would respond to a report of a body in a duffle bag.
Though the mutilated body was badly decomposed, they were able to identify it as Isidor-Mendoza’s. Court documents show that he had been cut in half at the waist, chopped up, wrapped in plastic bags, and then shoved into a red nylon duffle bag with a tarp.
According to prosecutors, Daves lived with Wallace Jackson inside Crystal Jackson’s detached garage. Isidor-Mendoza went to the garage to meet with the three but ended up arguing over drugs. Things got weird, as arguments over drugs often do, leading up to the death of Isidor-Mendoza.…
