OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is offering up to $10,000 for a video they believe shows the five-year-old murder of 19-year-old Carina Saunders.
We first reported on the murder of Saunders back in 2011, but for those of you too lazy to click on the link – here’s the details:
Saunders was last seen Oct. 8, 2011, getting into a red pickup at the Newcastle Casino with a man sporting tattoo sleeves on both arms. Five days later, Saunders’ dismembered body was found in a duffel bag behind an Oklahoma City grocery store.
After an autopsy showed Saunders died violently, her death was ruled a homicide. Then things got strange. Police would arrest Jimmy Massey and Luis Ruiz after a woman came forward to report she was abducted and taken to an unknown location the day after Saunders was last seen.
She claimed she was forced into a room where she was made to watch the torture and murder of Saunders. She claimed she “witnessed Ruiz physically beat Carina Saunders and then tie her up.…
Police say that on Friday night Antonia Lopez was alone in her bedroom when she gave birth to a baby girl who weighed two pounds and was 14 inches.
Afterwards, Lopez killed the infant by throwing it out of her second-floor window. She would end up confessing what she had done to her mother, who went outside and located the baby.
Lopez’ mother called police and performed CPR on the baby until help arrived, but the infant would be pronounced dead at the hospital. An official cause of death will not be released until after the baby’s autopsy has been completed.
The teen is now facing felony child abuse resulting in death, and will be charged as an adult. She was placed in the Douglas County Youth Center after going to the hospital for a medical evaluation.
Friends and family say they are shocked at the allegations and say they had no idea the girl was pregnant.…
For those of you who may not remember this case, here’s a quick refresher:
Erica was adopted by Casey and Sandy Parsons when she was two weeks old. In 2013, Erica’s step-brother reported her missing, but investigators would learn no one had seen the girl since 2011.
Casey and Sandy said they’d sent her to live with a relative in Asheville, but it turned out the relative didn’t exist. Over the next several months, police searched several properties but could not find Erica.
In 2014, Casey and Sandy were convicted on 76 federal charges for taking benefits for adoption assistance during the time Erica was missing. Casey was sentenced to 10 years, and Sandy was sentenced to eight years.
In July, Erica’s aunt and adoptive sister said they believed Erica was dead and that Casey and Sandy Parsons knew where Erica’s body was located.…
According to reports, police responded to a call about a suicidal woman who had “caught herself on fire.”
When they got to the scene they found the 34-year-old woman very late into her pregnancy suffering from significant burns.
The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition and gave birth to a baby boy. A little over two hours later, the baby died.
According to a King County Medical Examiner’s Office report, the boy died from prenatal asphyxia due to maternal thermal burns.
Despite hiss manner of death was listed as homicide, Kent police have not yet charged the woman with a crime.
“It is early on the investigation, and it is not quite clear if any charges will be brought against the woman,” said police spokeswoman Melanie Robinson.…
Police responded to Bingham’s trailer Tuesday morning after she called 911 to report she was going to kill herself and that she’d already killed her grandson, Rilan Everett.
Responding officers found Bingham walking on the road near her home and detained her without incident. Inside her home they would find Everett decomposing on his bed “with blue and decomposing skin and fluids flowing from the facial area.”
Bingham admitted to officers that on Sept 18 she held a washcloth over Everett’s mouth and nose as he lay awake in bed after telling him “it was time to go.” She removed the washcloth once the boy stopped struggling.
She told police that her initial plan was to kill her and Everett, who was living with her after his mother abandoned him to be with a boyfriend, by turning up the gas in the trailer. When that didn’t work she chose to smother Everett.…
RAPID CITY, SD – The grandmother of a 2-year-old boy who was allegedly killed by his mother due to potty-training issues, has been arrested and charged with helping her daughter cover up the boy’s beating death.
For those of you who may have missed this story earlier this year, 28-year-old Katrina Shangreaux allegedly beat her son to death after he had an accident while potty training at his grandmother’s house.
According to court documents the toddler had “multiple bruises on his body, some appeared older and some new. He also had multiple bite marks on his body and what appeared to be marks from a belt.”
Even more disturbing was the fact that the boy’s scrotum was torn and there was hair wrapped around his genitals.
Shangreaux would eventually be charged with murder and child abuse; charges she has since pleaded not guilty to. Now federal authorities have arrested Shangreaux’s mother, 47-year-old Sonya Dubray, accusing her of covering up the crime.
She allegedly washed Kylen’s clothes, cleaned up the crime scene, and lied about alleged abuse against the boy, and told authorities Kylen was already potty-trained.…

Man Captured On Camera Drowning 3-year-old Girl In Hotel Swimming Pool Sentenced To 100 Years In PrisonSeptember 21, 2016 at 1:36 pm by Morbid
For those of you who missed the original story last year, Jose David N. was staying with a woman and her daughter at a popular hotel last August when he took the girl to the pool after her mother fell asleep.
As you can see for yourself in the video below, Jose repeatedly throws the girl in the pool even though he knows she cannot swim. Sometimes he just drops her in the water, while other times he haphazardly slings her out into the middle of the pool.
Each time he does this, he nonchalantly walks around the edge of the pool or swims around her as she frantically tries to keep her head above water. With each toss, her attempts at swimming become weaker and weaker.
The video also shows Jose holding the girl under water for significant periods of time while other people in the pool nearby do nothing. …

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Just when you think the story about Victoria Martens’ death couldn’t any worse, it does. Turns out her mother regularly brought men over to have sex with her 10-year-old daughter just so she could watch.

On August 31, 4-year-old Amarrah Reynolds was rushed to the hospital in an unresponsive state and would be pronounced dead later that same day.
When she was brought in, there were bruises and scars all over her body. There were also “injuries to the inside of her thigh appear consistent with severe pinch marks that punctured the flesh.”
According to charging documents filed by the Macon County State’s Attorney’s Office, these injuries were the result of “exceptionally brutal or heinous behavior indicative of wanton cruelty” doled out by her father, 29-year-old Darrell Reynolds.
When questioned by police, Reynolds stated he “just killed his daughter” and admitted to police that he routinely beat the girl with a belt for the last two years. During this last beating, Reynolds said he used a belt to strike the girl in the head body and legs so many times that he lost count.
Even worse is the fact that this years long torture was witnessed by the girl’s mother, 26-year-old Dalvon Taylor.…
Police found 23-year-old Joaquin Mendez outside of a home with a gunshot wound to the chest. They were told by his cousin, 24-year-old Alexandro Garibaldi, that he found his cousin like that after hearing a gunshot.
However, witnesses told a completely different story. They said Mendez had put on a bulletproof vest and sat in a chair while wondering aloud “whether it still worked.”
The cousins found out it didn’t after Garibaldi allegedly pulled out a handgun and said “Let’s see,” before shooting Mendez in the chest. Police would find the bloody vest inside the home.
Mendez would be pronounced dead at the hospital while Garibaldi was arrested and charged with manslaughter. He was being held Sunday without bond.
Before anyone decides to post the obligatory “Floriduh” comment, these two are not the only ones we have featured on DD who found out a bullet-proof vest did not work.…
According to reports, 21-year-old Joshua Rose accidentally overdosed while doing drugs at the home where 20-year-old Amanda Wayda and 19-year-old Preston Layfield were present.
Instead of calling 911, Wayda called 22-year-old Tyler Mirabelli and asked him to come over and take Rose to the hospital. So far, so good right?
But while in the car the three came up with a different plan. Driving past the hospital, Wayda allegedly put a plastic bag over Rose’s head before Layfield strangled Rose to death with a set of jumper cables.
It took around four minutes for Rose to finally die, but once he did the trio stopped for gas – but not before putting glasses and a hat on Rose to make him look alive. Afterwards, the three are accused of dumping Rose’s body in the woods near some railroad tracks.…
It happened on Saturday when 49-year-old Juanita Gomez attacked her 33-year-old daughter, Geneva Gomez, because she was “possessed by the devil.”
During the attack, police say Gomez forced a crucifix down her daughter’s throat and then watched her die.
“She’s just lying there with her arms out. Her face was like, I couldn’t even recognize it,” said the victim’s boyfriend, Frankie Merlos.
“She kept mumbling ‘devil’ and ‘money,’” said Merlos, who added Gomez tried to prevent him from leaving or calling police.
“I just shoved her, pushed her out of the way so I could run, and then she tried to, like, choke me,” Merlos said. “I ran to the car, and locked the car, and called 911.”
Gomez admitted to investigators that she was trying to get the devil out of her daughter by beating her and forcing a crucifix and religious medallion down her throat.…
When a relative was unable to contact Edward Coles Jr, 58, and his wife, 55-year-old Rosemarie, they went to the couple’s home where they found them both dead inside.
Police said that Ryan lived with his parents and beat them to death with his hands and possibly a chair. They also said he was in the house when they arrived. He was calm, they said, and told them his parents were sick.
Autopsies would later determine the couple died from blunt head trauma. Ryan was taken to a hospital for evaluation before being transported to jail on murder and weapons charges. His bail has been set at $1 million.
Neighbors and police say that police often visited the home and that Ryan could often be seen sitting on the stoop talking to himself.
“He seemed a little detached, depressed,” neighbor John Ferencsik told the station. “We didn’t really know that, just know the impression I had was he was a little bit off.”
He also made some odd posts to his Facebook profile, including one in 2015 that read:
“Energy is both created and destroyed.…
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.…
