Batavia Police Detective Sergeant Todd Crossett said that the officers who discovered the baby girl’s body were being offered counseling. …
LUFKIN, TX — Police have charged 17-year-old Bobby Woods with the murder of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old nephew after they say he purposely pushed the boy in a pond so the little boy would drown.
Last Monday, the family of Mason Cuttler called police to report the boy was missing from his home. Cuttler lived with his aunt and her boyfriend, Bobby Woods, and was last seen outside of the home playing with toys while his family cleaned house.
After an extensive search, the little boy’s body was found floating in a pond behind his home. At the time, Cuttler’s biological father didn’t understand how his son could have fallen into the pond.
“It’s hard to go by that pond,” Kevin Cuttler said. “I walked over there about three, four times already trying to figure out how in the heck did he get up in there?”
After an investigation into the circumstances behind the boy’s drowning, police would be able to answer that question. Turns out Woods had performed some of his own brand of house cleaning.…
BONITA SPRINGS, FL – Police have arrested and charged two men from Missouri in connection with the murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers, a popular doctor who was found dead inside her Florida home.
The 46-year-old mother of two operated the Restorative Health and Healing Center with her husband, Mark, and was well-known for her work with transgender patients.
On June 29, Sievers left her husband and two daughters at a Connecticut gathering and returned home. The next day she was found dead inside her home.
At the time, police offered no motive or the manner in which she was killed, but neighbors said they were told a hammer was involved. Neighbors would also report hearing a shrill sound and a man’s voice shouting coming from Sievers’ home at around 5 a.m. that morning.
Investigators have kept pretty tight-lipped regarding their investigation until now, revealing they have arrested two men from Missouri in connection with the woman’s murder.
GRASS VALLEY, CA — A man in California returned home to find the body of his best friend crammed under a back porch staircase.
When Andrew Poni returned home Tuesday afternoon, his neighbor told him something had happened in his home, but she wasn’t sure what. Deciding to play it safe, Poni peered through the windows and immediately noticed something was wrong.
His keys were missing, as was his 100-pound pit bull. When he went inside he found that there was standing water on his kitchen floor. But that was nothing compared to what he found when he went out to the back porch.
There, crammed under the second step of the porch’s staircase, was the body of his best friend since they were kids. “Saw my best friend crunched into a ball the size of a cubic meter dude,” Ponti told reporter Nick Janes.
Grass Valley Police are calling the man’s death suspicious and have called in The Federal Bureau of Investigation to collect evidence and help process the scene.…
Howell called 911 last year to report her 17-month-old daughter, Jaslynn Mansfield, was not breathing. The baby was rushed to the hospital where she would later die of acute methadone toxicity.
After police found a baby bottle in Jaslynn’s room contained methadone, Howell would admit that on the day her daughter died, she had given the baby methadone to help her go to sleep.
What makes that fact so tragic is that had she told emergency workers this when her daughter was brought to the hospital, they very well could have saved her life.
According to the child’s grandmother, Howell knew the dangers of the drug as Jaslynn was born addicted to it and her father died from a methadone overdose a few months before she was born.
In July, Howell would plea guilty to second-degree manslaughter and causing a child to be exposed to a controlled substance.…
MORELIA, MEXICO – A man has been arrested and charged with murder after he drowned his 3-year-old stepdaughter by repeatedly throwing her into a hotel swimming pool.
Police said the man was staying with a woman and her daughter at a popular hotel on August 12 when he decided to take the girl to the pool after her mother fell asleep.
As you can see in the disturbing video below, the man repeatedly throws the little girl in the pool. Sometimes he just drops her in the water, clothed, while others he haphazardly slings her out into the middle of the pool.
Each time he does this, the asshole nonchalantly walks around the edge of the pool or swims around her as she frantically tries to keep her head above the water. With each toss, the girl’s attempts at swimming become weaker and weaker.
The video also shows the man holding the girl under water for significant periods of time while other people are nearby and never intervene.
Later, the child stops breathing and was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. …
MONETA, VA – Local CBS news station WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward have died after being shot to death during a live broadcast.
Alison Parker, 24, was in the middle of an interview with Smith Mountain Lake Chamber Director Vicki Gardner at around 6:45 a.m. when a man walked up and fired about eight shots at Parker and her cameraman, 27-year-old Adam Ward.
You can see Parker reacting and screaming during these shots as the camera falls to the ground and captures a man in black pointing a handgun at Ward. The segment quickly cuts back to the news room to a very shocked anchor.
WDBJ’s general manager Jeff Marks would come on the air later to confirm that both Parker and Smith had been shot to death.
“We do not know the motive. We do not know who the killer is,” Marks said. “We do know that Franklin County sheriff… they are working very diligently to track down both the motive and the person responsible for this terrible crime against two fine journalists.”
The Franklin County Sheriff Department is saying that three people had been shot in the incident, so I am assuming Vicki Gardner was shot and is currently alive.…

Smith would admit to detectives that on the day of his son’s death, he woke up about 7:30?a.m. that morning to his son crying. Smith went to check on him and squeezed him “like you squeeze a roll of toothpaste” until he heard a cracking sound. The boy went limp and groggy, so he placed him back in his sleeper.

BELLEFONTAINE, OH – Brittany Pilkington has been charged with the deaths of her three young sons after the 23-year-old admitted to murdering them because her husband was paying more attention to their daughter.
On Tuesday, Brittany called 911 to calmly report that her son, 3-month-old Noah, was not breathing. Noah was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Noah would be the third son Brittany and her husband have lost in a year.
In July 2014, she lost her 3-month-old son, Niall. In April of this year, her 4-year-old son, Gavin, would die. Authorities were still trying to determine the cause of Niall and Gavin’s death at the time of Noah’s passing.
So it was totally understandable that police would like to have a talk with Brittany. After just a few hours of questions, Brittany admitted she had killed her three sons by placing blankets over their faces and suffocating them.
Her motive? According to Brittany, she killed the boys because her husband was giving them more attention than he was their 3-year-old daughter, Hailey.…
The two were not students at the university, but were attending a party being thrown by a student who lived at the dorm. Witnesses told police that at around 2 a.m., the distraught was walking along a narrow ledge yelling that he was going to jump.
The older man was also on the ledge, trying to talk the teen into not killing himself. He quickly learned that no good deed goes unpunished, when he and the teen he was trying to save both fell from the ledge and landed 14 floors below.
The 24-year-old was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The teen is currently in critical condition at the hospital. If he wanted to kill himself before, I’m sure he’s really wanting to do it now — especially after learning his antics resulted in the death of someone who was just trying to help.…
The incident happened last month when the victim’s mother woke up to find her daughter was not in the house. She would end up finding her lying motionless and bleeding in the backyard of their home.
The girl was taken to the hospital where it was discovered she had a broken jaw, fractures to her skull and a bruised liver. One of the bruises on the girl, according to her mother, was in the shape of a man’s boot.
The girl regained consciousness and told police that she had woke up in the middle of the night and was walking down the hallway when she encountered a man she did not know. The intruder took her out to the backyard where he sexually assaulted her, stomped on her abdomen then beat her unconscious.
“None of her injuries, thank God, led to any internal brain damage or bleeding,” said the girl’s mother.…
TOULOUSE, FRANCE – Three French students have been accused of murdering a fellow student then, inspired by an episode of Breaking Bad, trying to dissolve her body in acid.
The three men, one 19 and the other two in their 20s, had recently began making their money by selling amphetamines to other students.
Last month, two of the three students went to the apartment of 23-year-old Eva Bourseau to collect approximately $6500 in drug money she owed them.
When they found out she did not have the money, they beat her to death with a crowbar and brass knuckles. In order to get rid of the body they decided to dissolve it in a plastic bin full of acid. One of the accused would later tell police they got the idea from watching Breaking Bad.
Figuring her body would dissolve in a few days, the geniuses bought a plastic bin, stuffed Bourseau’s body in it, then poured acid over her corpse. They would revisit the woman’s apartment over the next couple of days to check on the progress of their Soupe au Bourseau, steal some items, and replace air fresheners they were using to mask the smell of their work.…

According reports, witnesses observed Cox hitting his infant son, Jayceon Chrystie, several times with his hand as the child was in a car seat in the front passenger seat of Cox’s car. They were so disturbed by what they witnessed that they called 911 to report it.
“My wife and I [were] heading on the 31W, [and] we witnessed a guy look like he was striking something in the back seat of the car. I assumed that it was an infant or toddler the way he was striking it,” the witness said. “Couldn’t believe it, couldn’t believe it.”
Police looked for Cox’s vehicle, but before they could find it another call came in from the home of the boy’s mother. She called 911 to report Cox had dropped their son off in the driveway after having home for only a couple hours, and that the boy was “black and blue” and unresponsive.…
