CLEVELAND, OH – James Blair got so angry over his neighbor cutting her grass at night that police say the 50-year-old shot her in the face and ran over her body with a push mower.
Last week, 62-year-old Linda Ciotto was cutting her small lawn at around 9 p.m. This upset Blair so badly that he walked to her house next door and shot her in the face at point-blank.
When police arrived at Ciotto’s home two hours later after receiving a call, they found her body in her yard. Aside from the gunshot wound to her face, police say it also looked as if someone had run over her body with a push mower.
Blair was arrested early the next day after a six-hour standoff with sheriff’s deputies and a SWAT that only ended after they fired tear gas canisters into the home he lives in with his 73-year-old mother.
Blair was taken into custody and charged with murder. He is being held in the Huron County Jail on a $1 million bond.…
POLK COUNTY, FL – Police have charged Cheyanne Jessie, 25, with the murder of her father and her 6-year-old daughter before hiding their bodies.
Mark Weekly, 50, and his granddaughter, Meredith Jessie, were reported missing by Cheyanne Jessie on Saturday. They were last seen on July 18 at Weekly’s home, where Weekly often cared for Meredith.
When police checked Weekly’s home, they found blood splatter all over the house and detected a foul odor that Cheyanne said was a raccoon that had died under the house. After interviewing Cheyanne and other friends and family members, they learned that Cheyanne had told at least seven different stories regarding her daughter’s whereabouts.
When confronted with these allegations, Cheyanne admitted that she and her father got into an argument at his home regarding her new boyfriend. She claims Weekly brandished a knife and began swinging it around, accidentally stabbing and his granddaughter. Cheyanne said she was able to get the upper-hand and kill her father in self-defense.
Even if any of that were true, which evidence points to it all being a crock of shit, it doesn’t explain what Cheyanne admitted to doing next.…
GAITHERSBURG, MD – Police have charged 33-year-old Narges Shafeirad with the murder of her son after they say she forced the boy to overdose on allergy medicine before staging a fiery car crash.
On June 16, 5-year-old Daniel Dana was found trapped inside a burning car off Route 370. Shafeirad was face-down on the ground outside the driver’s door, screaming in pain.
Emergency crews tried to save Daniel, but he later died. Shafeirad was transported to the hospital to treat second and third degree burns to 40 percent of her body.
Shafeirad would tell Montgomery County police that the crash was an accident caused by her car catching fire, but investigators would quickly become suspicious.
For starters, fire marshals and a reconstruction team found that the fire started in the front-seat area and the car reeked of gasoline in and around the vehicle. They would later rule out a mechanical malfunction, including the fuel lines and fuel tank. But Shafeirad’s version of events really fell apart after Daniel’s toxicology results revealed the boy had died from Diphenhydramine intoxication.…
DEFOREST, WI – Theodore Peterson, 47, killed his disabled, teenage son before shooting himself in the head with a nail gun at Token Creek County Park.
On July 21, Peterson sent his wife a text saying he was at the park taking their 16-year-old son Maxwell for a walk. Maxwell suffered from Angelman syndrome, a rare neuro-genetic disorder that requires lifelong care.
While there, Peterson killed Maxwell by slitting his throat with a knife, then used a nail gun to shoot himself in the head. Peterson didn’t do as good of a job on himself as he did with his son, as he was still alive when a woman riding a horse found the pair lying on a trail.
Peterson was flown by helicopter to University of Wisconsin hospital where he was charged with the murder of his son before dying of his injuries a day or so later. No official word on a motive behind Peterson’s actions, but his wife told police that a respite care provider for Maxwell was no longer allowing a female worker into the Peterson home because of something posted on Facebook.…
PRYOR, MT – Jesus Mendoza, 18, has been accused of shooting and killing a couple after they stopped to help him after he became stranded on the side of the road.
Tana Shane, 50, was driving on Pryor Gap Road when she saw Mendoza was stranded on the side of the road. Tana continued home and picked up her husband, 52-year-old Jason Shane, and her daughter, 24-year-old Jorah Shane, with intentions of returning to help Mendoza.
The three first stopped at a nearby corner store to buy gasoline, but found the store was closed. They then went back to where Mendoza was stranded and found out the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished.
Instead of accepting their help, Mendoza opened fire on the family, killing Tana and Jason. He also shot Jorah, but the bullet grazed her head and she was able to run to a nearby school for help. She returned to the scene with family members before being transported to the hospital.
Law enforcement from the FBI, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Big Horn County Sheriff’s Department and the Montana Highway Patrol responded to the scene and immediately began searching for Mendoza who’d fled the scene in Tana’s car.…
CHARLESTON, WV – A prostitute in West Virginia shot and killed 45-year-old Neal Falls with his own gun after he tried to kill her, and may have very well stopped a serial killer’s cross-country murder spree.
According to “Heather” she had arranged a hookup with Falls via her online ad on Backpage that described her as a “sexy, red-headed sweetheart.”
But things turned bad real quick when Falls burst into Heather’s apartment brandishing a gun and asked, “live or die?”
Falls then grabbed Heather by the throat and tried to choke the life out of her. But Falls underestimated the 5-foot-6-inch, 130-pound Heather, who had no intentions of dying that day.
“When he strangled me, I grabbed my rake, and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I shot him,” Heather said. “I grabbed the gun and shot behind me I knew he was there to kill me.”
Heather, suffering from a separated shoulder and a broken vertebrae, ran to a neighbor’s apartment and called 911.…

According to police, the girl got into an argument with her stepmother, 50-year-old Maria Torres, that led to the girl starting a small fire in her bedroom. When Torres confronted the girl about the fire, the girl stabbed her.
Her father, 49-year-old Edwin Torres, tried to restrain his daughter, but she stabbed him as well, inflicting a non life-threatening injury. The girl then fled the apartment. The injuries to Maria were so severe, she would die before emergency responders could take her to the hospital.
The following morning, police found the girl walking along some railroad tracks with a juvenile female friend in nearby Bristol.

On Friday, Keever doused Amy Keever with gasoline and then set her on fire in front of their kids. A neighbor heard Amy screaming and ran over to help, watching as Donn drove away in his truck.
“She wasn’t on fire just a little bit. She was on fire. I can’t get it out of my head. It’s nothing I would ever imagine seeing,” said witness Jennifer Lewis.
She managed to help Amy put the flames that had burned off a large portion of Amy’s clothes, and call 911. Amy was rushed to the hospital suffering from serious burns over a large portion of her body.
Donn Keever was seen later that day speeding the wrong way down I-65. Witnesses say Keever abruptly turned into the path of a semi, crashing into it head-on.

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.…

LONDON – Sarah Sands, the 32-year-old woman facing a murder charge after admitting to stabbing her pedophile neighbor to death, was convicted of manslaughter.
Sands neighbor, 77-year-old Michael Pleasted, was a nasty peice of work. He was a convicted pedophile who had a history of sexually abusing young boys dating back to 1970.
He has been convicted of 24 sexual offences involving children but has only spent a little over six years total in jail. In the months before Sands gave him eight new holes to breathe from, he was facing new charges of molesting three other boys.
His trial was scheduled for this summer, and the prosecution was considering a third charge against him. That is until Sands saved everyone from a lot of time and money.
Remarkably, Pleasted was granted bail and allowed to return home while awaiting his trial. Sands, who lived across from Pleasted, wasn’t having any of it. On November 28 of last year, she drank two bottles of wine and then paid her neighbor a visit – with a kitchen knife, a hammer and and a wrench inside her purse.…
According to investigators, a realtor helping the couple sell their house stopped by on Sunday with some potential buyers. He found that the doors were locked and barricaded with furniture before hearing Agren crying for help in an upstairs bedroom.
The realtor broke into the house and made his way to the master bedroom where he discovered a gruesome scene. Agren was alive on the floor with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Her husband, 59-year-old Michael Jordan, and her son, 17-month-old Miles, were both lying dead on the bed.
Agren was taken to the hospital to treat her wound and would admit to police that she was the one who fatally shot her husband and son before turning the gun on herself. Police believe Agnes shot them two or three days before being found.
As for motive, it is looking like another case of postpartum depression.…
WEST VALLEY CITY, UT — Police say a 15-year-old boy murdered 12-year-old Kailey Vijil and left her body in a horse pasture after luring the girl from her home.
According to police, the teen went to the girl’s home around midnight Friday and said something to her that convinced her to leave the house and go with him.
While it is not known what the teen said to the girl, a neighbor told police that the teen was at her house the night before trying to get his teenage sisters to help him find a pregnant cat. I know some of you are going to ask if anyone knew the girl was leaving the house, and the answer to that question is “yes”.
West Valley Police Chief Lee Russo said Vijil’s mother knew her daughter was leaving with the teen, but didn’t say if she knew where her daughter was going. He also didn’t know why the mother allowed her daughter to leave in the first place. However, Russo also said “this isn’t about parenting, this is about a homicide.”
An hour later, when her daughter had not returned, Vijil’s mother began looking for her.…
LORAIN, OH – Paul Pelton is facing criminal charges after the 41-year-old decided not to help two dying teens who had just been in a car crash, but rather filmed them with his cellphone and posted the video to Facebook.
On Monday, 17-year-old Zachary Goodin lost control of his Honda and sent him and his passenger, 17-year-old Cameron Friend, hit a parked vehicle, a utility pole, and finally crashing into a house.
While witnesses rushed to help pull the teens from the burning vehicle before rescue teams arrived, Pelton decided to film it. Instead of offering assistance or trying to comfort the teenagers, Pelton allegedly pulled out his cellphone and pulled a Nightcrawler.
According to police, he opened the vehicle’s back door to get video of the teens inside, calling them “idiots” while doing so.
“He opened a back door and leaned in to film the boys and then walked around to the front door as he continued recording,” the police report said. “At no time did he try to help either of the boys.”
Friend would die at the hospital while the Goodin is currently at the hospital in critical condition.…
