KNOXVILLE, TN – A woman wanted for the attempted murder of her mother was arrested after she walked up to a news crew and admitted on camera that she tried to stab her mother to death because her mother was the antichrist and the leader of a satanic cult.
Laurie Nichols told authorities that her daughter, 31-year-old Katie Nichols, busted into her room around 3:40am Tuesday, put a sock in her mouth and told her to eat it. Nichols then tied her mom up and strangled her until she lost consciousness before stabbing her once in the chest with a small kitchen knife, once in the abdomen with a large kitchen knife, and once in the neck with a pair of scissors.
Neighbors called police after hearing Laurie’s screams, but by time they arrived Katie had fled the scene with her young daughter. Laurie was rushed to U.T. Medical Center, where she had surgery and is recovering in ICU.
A news crew went out to the apartment complex and were in the middle of interviewing a neighbor who knew the mother and daughter.…Continue Reading
SPRINGFIELD, MO - Police have arrested and charged 45-year-old Craig Wood with the abduction and murder of Hailey Owens, the 10-year-old abducted in broad daylight as she walked home from a friend’s house Tuesday afternoon.
Police were called after a couple watched a tan Ford Ranger stop near Owen as she walked down the street and heard the driver ask her for directions. Owens took a step or two toward the truck before the male driver lunged out of the truck, grabbed Owens with his left hand and threw her into the truck “like a rag doll” before fleeing the scene.
Other neighbors chased after the truck, but were unable to stop him. Luckily, the couple were able to give police a detailed description of the suspect and his vehicle, including the exact license plate number. This helped police quickly determine the truck was owned by Jim and Regina Wood, who told them the truck was driven by their son, 45-year-old Craig Wood.
When detectives arrived at Craig Wood’s home a few hours after Owens’ abduction, he drove up in the truck police were looking for and tossed a roll of duct tape in the bed of the truck as he got out.…Continue Reading
According to police, the fight apparently began when 56-year-old Benjamin Calderon swiped said foot from the skillet James Jugo was attending to at the moment. It was apparently then that the beating commenced.
Wait…. people eat chicken feet? I’ve seen them in the meat department and shit, but I didn’t know people actually fried and consumed them. I thought that shit was used for voodoo and stuff. I can’t imagine sticking one of those things in my mouth….
Anyway, Jugo told police he beat Calderon to death with his fists, but a witness claims to have seen him swinging a wooden cutting board. At any rate, Calderon is very much dead — the autopsy revealed he suffered internal bleeding after being hit numerous times on the face, neck and elsewhere.
This, surprisingly, isn’t Jugo’s first brush with the law — he’s been arrested at least 19 times on charges that include burglary, cocaine possession, petty theft, probation violation, open container and possession of a dangerous dog.…Continue Reading
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Little Rock Police say 48-year-old Willie Noble didn’t care much about his future freedom when he walked out of his home and started shooting at a car full of teenagers who vandalized his car.
One of those bullets ended up hitting and killing 15-year-old Adrian Broadway, and now Noble is looking at a first degree murder charge.
It happened on at around 1 a.m. Saturday morning after Broadway and a group of her friends pulled up to Noble’s residence for the second time that night, and covered Noble’s car with leaves, eggs and mayo.
Noble came running out of the house armed with a gun, and opened fire on the group of teens as they drove away. Police say the group drove to a nearby gas station and called 911 after realizing Broadway had been shot in the head.
She was rushed to Arkansas Children’s Hospital where she would be pronounced dead. Aside from the driver of the vehicle suffering lacerations to his hand from broken glass, no one else in the car was injured.…Continue Reading
EVERETT, WA — Brad George, 16, has been charged with murder after he confessed to beating his adoptive mother to death with a dumbbell.
Two weeks after getting off probation for assaulting a staff member at a school for troubled youth, George murdered 37 -year-old Georgina Latshaw, the woman who has taken care of him for the last ten years.
George called 911 on Friday afternoon after coming home from school to find his mother’s car at home, although she should have been at work, and the front door of his family’s apartment open. When he could not get his mother to answer his cell phone, he called for police.
When arriving officers entered the apartment, they found Latshaw dead in her bed. She had apparent blunt-force trauma to the head, and a bloody dumbbell was found in a nearby garbage can. Robbery did not seem to be a motive as there were no signs of forced entry, and money was reportedly lying out in the open in George’s room.…Continue Reading

Corriann Cervantes was last seen on Wednesday, but her body wasn’t found until early Saturday morning after someone went to investigate an open door at a vacant apartment. Houston police say the girl had been violently raped and then had her head bashed in with a toilet tank lid and an ashtray.
Even more disturbing is the fact that there was evidence of occult activity in the apartment and around the girl’s half-naked body. According to investigators, an upside-down cross had been carved into Cervantes’ stomach, and religious items had been placed around her body.
Reyes was arrested on Sunday after confessing to his part in the crime to a family member.

Raleigh, NC – An 11-year-old boy hanged himself the other day because, according to his parents, he was incessantly bullied at school over his love of the cartoon My Little Pony.
According to Michael Morones’ parents, the boy decided to put a stop to the bullying by hanging himself off the side of his bunk bed. He was found before he killed himself, but not before he deprived his brain of oxygen and caused potentially life-long brain damage.
“We won’t know for months how much is going to heal,” said his mother, Tiffany. “It could even be years before we find out what potential for healing he has.”
Surprisingly, she is not trying to have her son’s alleged bullies found and punished. ”I’ve heard a lot of people say you need to go after bullies and hold them responsible,” said Tiffany. “But you know, I don’t think that’s what Mike would want. I would rather teach people how to do right than turn around than punish, because punishment doesn’t always work.”
Morones is currently in critical condition at children’s hospital WakeMed where he is scheduled to have a tracheotomy today.…Continue Reading
Napa, CA – Police have arrested Sara Krueger and Scott Warner, the couple who were being sought in connection to the death of Krueger’s 3-year-old daughter, after someone recognized them inside a restaurant.

CHANDLER, AZ – Police have charged 65-year-old Rose Mary Vogel with attempted murder after they say she put shit in her husband’s IV while he was recovering from heart surgery.
Vogel was with her husband in his recovery room at Chandler Regional Medical Center when two nurses walked in and found Vogel handling her husband’s IV. The nurses said they saw Vogel touching the IV pump when the pump’s alarm went off, and said she told told them the line needed to be flushed.
One of the nurses noticed something brown in the line and removed it from the man’s arm. She went for help when she noticed the line smelled like shit. When the nurse returned to the room, she said Vogel was trying to empty the IV bag into the trash, but the nurse was able to get it away from her.
Tests would later show that the brown substance was fecal matter. Vogel was originally looking at an aggravated assault charge until investigators searched her purse and found two syringes containing fluid, and a third syringe with what appeared to be traces of feces.…Continue Reading
EAST ELMHURST, NY – A man brutally bludgeoned his girlfriend and her daughter with a hammer Wednesday because he believed them to be witches casting spells upon him.
44-year-old Carlos Alberto Amarillo turned a simple, household hammer into a deadly weapon when he used it to bludgeon his girlfriend, Estrella Castaneda, 56, and her daughter, 24-year-old Lina Castaneda, because he believed they were active practitioners of “Voodoo”.
Both women suffered blunt force trauma to the head and were pronounced dead at the scene, authorities confirmed. A neighbor said they heard what appeared to be banging the evening of the murders though no yells or screams were present.
Lina Castaneda’s 7-year-old daughter was mere feet from her mother who was left face down on her bedroom floor with a bloody hammer next to her corpse. The girl was removed from the house unharmed.

MARIANNA, FL – Researchers and forensic anthropologists have uncovered the remains of 55 people on the now closed school grounds of the notorious Arthur G. Dozier Reform School for Boys in northwest Florida.
For decades, families of the missing boys have sought answers to long asked questions regarding the mysterious disappearances amid reports of beatings, torture, and sexual assault that occurred at the reform school which operated from 1900 to 2011.
During the nearly two-year project, there have been 55 bodies uncovered; “five more than previous field work had indicated and 24 more than listed in school records.” The aim is to verify the identities and ages as well as the timing and circumstances surrounding their deaths.
Researchers led excavations at or around Boot Hill, which is an unmarked cemetery located on school grounds. Using tools such as ground-penetrating radar, DNA samples, and search dogs, the team investigated the area for unmarked graves that may have belonged to the growing list of boys reported missing over the many years of the school’s operation.…Continue Reading
JAMAICA QUEENS, NY – No car seat…no problemo! After brutally stabbing his wife to death, 28-year-old Miguel Mejia-Ramos stabbed his two young daughters because he didn’t have car seats to take them with him on his way to Mexico.
Mejia-Ramos appeared in court Friday and was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted. No bail was granted and Mejia-Ramos was placed on suicide watch following court.
Authorities said that, on January 19th, Mejia-Ramos got off work at 6 p.m. and spent the evening drinking beer at a friends house. He arrived home around 11 p.m. and brutally murdered his wife, 21-year-old Deisy Garcia, after he checked his wife’s phone and Facebook account (ohhh that pesky Facebook), and flew into a rage when he discovered a photo of his wife with another man.
District Attorney Richard Brown said Mejia-Ramos then chased his wife and stabbed her with a knife retrieved from the butcher’s block in the kitchen. He then proceeded to stab 1-year-old Yoselin Meija and 2-year-old Daniela Meija while they still slept in their beds.…Continue Reading
The body of 52-year-old Harold Sasko was found in his home on January 17 after the family of one of his former employees, 19-year-old Sarah McLinn, called police to report her missing. Sasko owned several CiCi’s pizza places in the area and had let McLinn move into his home in 2012.
Officers who found Sasko say he had suffered several traumatic injuries, and believed he was subdued and unconscious before an “edged device” was used to kill him. McLinn’s car was still in the driveway, but Sasko’s car and dog were misssing.
Police immediately began searching the area for McLinn and issued a nationwide alert to be on the lookout for McLinn and Sasko’s Altima. That searched ended a week later when, 1500 miles away, Rangers found McLinn illegally camping at Everglades National Park. She was living in Sasko’s car and was found with drugs and Sasko’s dog, Oliver.…Continue Reading

At around 7:30 a.m. Monday morning, Nett was in the school cafeteria when he drank a water bottle full of bleach before dousing himself with Coleman fuel and lighting himself up. ”I could see the kid in the flames,” a student said. “He was standing and it was almost like he was dancing around in the fire.”

According to Burlew, she and Jason Ash liked to engage in strangulation and cutting during sex, but she took things a little too far last Saturday. Everything was going ok until she wrapped some electrical wire around Ash’s neck and choked him for a tad too long, killing the guy.
At first Burlew though Ash had simply passed out, so she tried to get him to wake up by cutting him with a razor. When that didn’t work, she did the next best thing and used the razor to start cutting herself. Eventually Burlew realized that also wasn’t working, and called her mother to inform her Ash was dead.
When her mother arrived at the apartment, she found Ash dead on the bed with a cord around his neck. He was fully clothed but his pants were unbuttoned. Able to handle stressful situations better than her daughter, she called 911 and tried performing CPR instead of conducting an interpretive dance and punching Ash in the crotch.…Continue Reading
Mundelein, IL — A 14-year-old girl is facing three counts of murder after authorities say she stabbed her 11-year-old sister nearly 40 times. Apparently, her ungrateful little sister didn’t appreciate everything she had done for her.
“She indicated she was mad from the night before,” said Asst. State’s Atty. Claudia Kasten during a detention hearing for the teen. “She went downstairs to get a knife. . .With each stab wound, she said she was not thankful for what she (the older girl) had done.”
Kasten, citing the autopsy, told the court the teen stabbed the girl 30 times across the neck, chest and arms and slashed her face three times. The girl also suffered bruises to her chest, and non-penetrating knife wounds “too numerous to count,” meaning she probably was jumping away from the knife, police say.
Police learned of the attack early Tuesday morning after receiving a 911 call from the teen. Her initial story was that she woke to the sound of her sister’s screams just before 8:00 a.m.…Continue Reading
Authorities claim 18-year-old Brandon Davis, apparently high on some sort of synthetic drug, attacked his neighbor early Sunday morning, biting the man on his face, hands and neck while yelling something about eating the man’s eyeballs.
The victim, 54-year-old Nick Sorace, told police he heard a commotion at about 2:00 a.m. Sunday, and when he looked out the window to see what all the fuss was about, he witnessed Davis beating a dog.
“He thought the dog was the devil,” Sorace said. “And then the next thing he sees is me, illuminated — and all of a sudden, I’m the devil.”
Davis apparently kicked in Sorace’s front door, chased a woman through the house and out the back door, then returned. He started beating and biting Sorace, continuing with his “You’re the Devil” spiel.
“He broke a flower pot over my head, he was sticking me in the neck with pieces…he stuck his thumb all the way in my eye socket and he just ripped my mouth and he bit my face.…Continue Reading
Officers were called out to the Carolina Pride pork plant early that morning and found the victim bleeding from a hole in her neck. The woman told police she and a co-worker, identified as Johnnette Lachelle Brown, were in a room where the hogs are slaughtered and cut up for processing, when Brown accused the woman of slugging her with a hog stomach.
The victim denied doing so, pointing out to Brown that there weren’t even any hog stomachs on the table. Regardless, it was on…
After a brief verbal altercation, Brown reportedly grabbed a pair of scissors and stabbed the woman in the neck. The victim apparently managed to fend Brown off with her fists until co-workers pulled the two apart.
