MOUNT CLEMENS, MI – A jury has found Donna Scrivo, 61, guilty of the 2014 murder and dismemberment of her mentally ill, adult son.
On January 27th 2014, Donna Scrivo reported that her son, Ramsay Scrivo, 32, had not returned after leaving their St. Clair Shores home the day before.
Three days later five bags containing parts of his body, clothing and burnt papers were located on a country road. Included inside one of the bags was an electric saw that was used to dismember his body.
According to the prosecution, Donna drugged her son with Xanax, strangled him to death and then dumped his body in a bathtub. After dismembering him into manageable pieces, she tossed the bags in four different places around St Clair County.
Throughout the trial Donna has maintained her innocence. She claimed she found an armed man in her son’s room who held her at gunpoint over a period of five days. She claimed the intruder killed her son and forced her into helping him dispose of the body.…
NORTH NAPLES, FL – Four years ago we reported on Christopher Serna, the psycho who decapitated his new girlfriend and pinned her nipples to a door. On Friday he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 50 years in prison.
Last year Serna’s defense attorney was talking about using the insanity defense, which is rarely used despite what television and movies will have you believe, and barring the gruesome crime scene photos from being seen by potential jurors.
I guess they changed their mind and figured a plea deal and a half-century behind bars was the best they were ever gonna get for their client.
“This saved the family from having to relive the case and hear again what he did to her,” said Samantha Syoen, a spokeswoman for the state attorney. “In many people’s eyes, this is virtually a life sentence.”
I can sort of understand the family of Suzane Bishop agreeing to the deal and not rehashing the details of Bishop’s murder in court, complete with crime scene photos, as they were pretty horrific.…
Police say that on Saturday, the 39-year-old killed 24-year-old Cecelia Woods, 3-year-old Keyon Jackson and 2-year-old James Jackson Jr. Afterwards, he contacted people to confess what he had done and his plans to kill himself.
“Just prior to his own death, Jackson Sr. contacted numerous people, confessing that he had killed Woods and the children, and his intention to kill himself,” state police said in a statement. “He also posted a suicide note on the refrigerator door.”
He wasn’t lying, and he made good on his word. When police arrived at the mobile home, they found Jackson hanging by his neck from a dog-lead cable that was attached to a TV antenna just outside the front door.
Inside they would find Woods dead in one bedroom, and the two children dead on a mattress in another bedroom.
A medical examiner would conclude Woods and her two children had all been strangled to death with the same metal dog lead Jackson used to hang himself with.…
DEMOTTE, IN – Alicia Keir has admitted to giving birth to a baby girl on a Carnival cruise then leaving the baby to die underneath her bed.
According to reports, the then 20-year-old woman boarded a Caribbean cruise ship in 2011 to celebrate her friend’s birthday. Unbeknownst to anyone but Keir, she was pregnant.
On the second day of the cruise, Keir gave birth to a baby girl by herself in her stateroom. She claims the full term baby was not moving or making a sound when she wrapped the baby in a towel and placed her underneath the bed.
It wasn’t until the next day, at the port of St. Maarten, that a cleaning crew found the baby dead underneath the bed. A doctor would later determine that the infant was born without any defects or diseases, and had died from exposure and lack of care.
By this time, Keir had already boarded a plane back home. I’m not sure why it has taken so long for this case to reach its conclusion, but I am pretty sure it had a lot to do with where the crime was committed.…
LAYTON, UT – A couple are facing homicide charges following the death of 2-year-old James “JJ” Sieger Jr., the boy who was stomped to death after having feces smeared on his face and being dropped to the floor.
The boy’s mother, 23-year-old Jasmine Bridgeman, and her boyfriend, 34-year-old Joshua Schoenenberger, brought an unresponsive James to the hospital early Saturday. Doctors would immediately notice bruising on his legs, groin, arms and head.
They would also discover the boy had internal bleeding and a perforated colon. Surgeons would end up removing about 10 inches of his colon then place James on life support. Unfortunately, he did not make it.
Police interviewed Bridgeman, who repeatedly lied about what happened to her son. When police explained that her bullshit was not matching up to her son’s injuries, she finally told police what had happened to James that morning.
According to her, Schoenenberger became upset with James when he soiled his diaper. She says after her boyfriend took the boy to the shower to clean him off, she heard screaming and hitting.…
On Thursday, police received phone calls reporting gunshots coming from Janzen’s home, followed by a loud bang. A SWAT team arrived at the home, beginning a four hour standoff before a fire was started inside the home.
After firefighters put out the blaze, members of the SWAT made entry into the home and found the bodies of Randy Janzen, his wife, Laurel, and their 19-year-old daughter, Emily. The body of his sister, Shelly, was found shot to death at another location.
According to a post made under Rand Janzen’s Facebook account the murder of his daughter was a cure for the migraines that had plagued his daughter since elementary school. He states that “he shot her in the head and now she is migraine free.”
He claims he murdered his wife and sister because it was in their best interest. His wife was killed because “a mother should never hear the news that their baby has died,” and he murdered his sister so she would not have to live with the shame he’d caused.…

Up until his arrest, the 43-year-old was the executive director of the Jared Foundation, an organization named after Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle that works toward raising awareness about childhood obesity.

Police were called to the all-night Dunkin Donuts on Arundel Mills Boulevard after a customer walked in at around 11 p.m. Sunday and found that there were no employees.

Leaj Price, 24, got into a a domestic situation with her husband that got so bad she felt the need to run from the home and to a doctor’s office next door. She was frantically trying to get in while screaming for someone to call the police.

Philadelphia, PA — This bitch. This cheery, smiling, happy-looking bitch right here has been accused of ditching her disabled 21-year-old son in the forest, with nothing but a blanket and a bible, so she could toddle off and hang with her boyfriend in Maryland for a minute.
According to police, 41-year-old Nyia Parler wheeled her non-verbal, quadriplegic son, who also suffers from cerebral palsy, into a wooded area sometime last Monday. She took the man from his chair and laid him on the ground nearby. She then covered him with a blanket, placed a bible on his chest, and walked away. And there he remained, in the cold and rain, for five fucking days.
When the man failed to show up for his scheduled classes at the School of the Future, school officials attempted to reach Parler. When she didn’t answer, they contacted the man’s aunt. She, in turn, contacted Parler.
Parler, the bitch, lied to the woman, claiming her son was there in Maryland, safe and sound, with her.…

Police were called to Wright’s home on a report of child abuse after a friend of Wright’s came over and discovered the suspect’s daughter covered in serious burns.

ELMWOOD PARK, NJ – Police say that 100-year-old Michael Juskin hacked his sleeping wife to death with an ax, becoming one of the oldest people ever accused of homicide, before killing himself with a knife.
Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said late Sunday night, used an ax to murder 88-year-old Rosalia Juskin as she slept. Afterwards, he went into a bathroom and killed himself with a knife. Their bodies were found by a family member Monday morning.
Molinelli said Michael and Rosalia Juskin had a “history of domestic issues,” while family members have said that Michael suffered from dementia. “Sometimes he was lucid and sometimes he wasn’t,” the family member said.
Neighbors say they would often see Michael walking his dog and Rosalia tending her garden, but that they “kept to themselves.” Teresa Communicates said she spoke with Rosalia on occasion but that Michael “wasn’t the type to converse.”
Authorities are still investigating, but have yet to determine a motive for the murder-suicide. If there is a silver lining to this cloud, it’s that Michael Juskin may be the oldest person accused of murder.…
