Matthew WarnerLOS ANGELES, CA — Matthew Warner, 30, was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison for the sexual assault and murder of his 19-day-old daughter.

On January 23, Warner was at home watching his infant daughter, Ellorah Warner, while his wife was at work. Later that evening, he would tell police that his daughter was missing and had been kidnapped.

Before a search for the baby began, neighbors told investigators that they saw Warner carrying a bundle away from the couple’s home. Around 50 personnel surrounding sheriff’s stations, as well as search-and-rescue crews and air units started searching for the girl.

The following morning, Warner would lead police to a truck parked in a parking lot located a half-mile from the couple’s home. Hidden inside the cab of the truck was the dead body of Ellorah, wrapped up in towels and bags.

At first it was reported that the baby had been drowned, but it was later reported she had been beaten to death. Warner was arrested and charged with the murder of his daughter.…

Christina BalaziWEST PALM BEACH, FL – Last month we had a man who ripped out his girlfriend’s intestines after she called out another man’s name during sex. Now we have a woman in Florida who repeatedly stabbed her husband after he called out another woman’s name during sex.

According to police, 39-year-old Christina Balazi and her husband of 10 years were having sex when he uttered another woman’s name.

Balazi became so enraged over the slight that she allegedly pulled a sheet over her husband’s head, straddled him and then stabbed him in the chest and neck at least seven times with a kitchen knife.

Her husband said after feeling sharp pains in his chest, neck and head, he removed the sheet and saw his wife straddling him while holding the knife. He told police he was able to get the knife away from her and run outside.

According to the police report, Balazi ran after him yelling “I’m tired of this!” before she got into her car and fled the scene.…

Alicia GoemaatSEATTLE, WA – Alicia Goemaat is facing murder charges after police say she kicked her boyfriend’s 17-month-old son to death.

According to reports, 26-year-old Goemaat was watching her toddler son along with Drue Lehto, the 17-month-old son of her boyfriend.

The toddlers got into an argument over a toy and, according to Goemaat’s own admission, she kicked Drue in the stomach. After the boy fell down, she kicked him again, causing fatal abdominal injuries.

One week before Drue was kicked to death, he was taken to Seattle Children’s Hospital to treat “bruises and scratches that did not appear to be normal for a toddler.”

According to the police report, Goemaat is a drug addict who would often scream at Drue. Friends of the couple also said Goematt “would become extremely agitated when the victim cried and would physically punish him by spanking him or ‘flicking’ him on his body when he cried.”

Goemaat’s ex-boyfriend said he was shocked at the news, stating he never saw Goemaat act aggressive towards his kids.…

Isabel Cristina ZuluagaSIMPSONVILLE, SC – Police have taken a 13-year-old boy into custody after his mother, 44-year-old Isabel Zuluaga, was found stabbed to death in their home.

A contractor who arrived at Zuluaga’s home Tuesday morning is the one who called 911 after finding the woman dead inside.

He said that when no one answered the door for him he went under home’s crawlspace to start working and found Zuluaga’s son hiding under the house.

After telling the boy to leave so he could start working he noticed blood dripping from above, through the floorboards. That’s when the contractor went inside the home and found Zuluaga dead from multiple stab wounds to the torso.

Police would take the teen into custody a few hours later after he was found walking near a highway. According to Greenville County Sheriff Steve Loftis, the teen admitted to killing his mother the night before and then going to sleep.

Mark ConstantinoRENO, NV – Mark and Debby Constantino, a couple often featured on Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures”, are dead in what police are calling a murder-suicide.

On Tuesday morning, a woman called police to report she had returned home to find her male roommate dead. She also told them her other roommate, Debby Constantino, was missing.

Through their investigation, police quickly determined that the missing woman’s cell phone was pinging from an apartment owned by an adult child of Debby and her estranged husband, 53-year-old Mark Constantino.

As police approached the apartment, Mark shot at them through the door and told them to go away. Negotiators from local police and the FBI tried to get Constantino to come out and surrender, but after a few hours and no response a SWAT team made entry into the apartment.

Inside they would find the dead bodies of both Mark and Debby. Police say Mark was responsible for the death of the male at the first location and had kidnapped his wife before killing her and then himself.…

Aaron CutsingerHARTFORD, AR – Police have charged 25-year-old Aaron Cutsinger with murder after he ran over a woman multiple times on a rural road as she held her 2-year-old son.

Police were called to the scene Saturday night after someone found a toddler covered in bruises wandering a dirt road. The boy was taken to the hospital while police searched the area and found the boy’s mother, 23-year-old Leanora Rippy, dead after having been run over numerous times back and forth.

In less than 24 hours investigators had identified Cutsinger as a suspect and had taken him into custody. Cutsinger once dated Rippy and had recently been arrested after sending Rippy a series of threatening text messages. During questioning, Cutsinger reportedly admitted that he was responsible for Rippy’s death.

Cutsinger is now facing charges of first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder. He’s currently being held at the detention center without bond. Rippy’s son has since been released from the hospital and into DHS custody.

“It was an act of God the child was not hurt worse,” Sebastian County Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck said, adding the boy was alone for several hours in a remote area populated by wild hogs and bears.…

hortonAVON PARK, FL – I plan on being a feisty old fart. I’m going to shimmy my old lady ass as I shuffle board in the morning, and drink a few margaritas while I play strip poker in the evening. I’m going to be amazing.

What I won’t be doing is waving my gun at the help, or being a general cantankerous ass like 91-year-old Max Horton, who was arrested after threatening to kill a landscaper for getting grass clippings on his car.

Robert Hendrix was working at Horton’s home when the elderly man confronted him about grass clippings that had landed on his car. Hendrix, who has known Horton for 14 years, brushed the grass off the car but Horton went apeshit, saying he was going to “fix the problem himself.”

Horton pulled out a gun from a pouch on his hip, then ordered Hendrix to his knees while telling Hendrix he was going to kill him. Hendrix begged “please don’t kill me” while backing up on his knees. Johnny Barnes, Hendrix’s coworker, saw this unfolding and approached Horton as he fired off a shot at Hendrix and then aimed the gun at Barnes.…

Alan LassiterDURHAM, NC — Police have arrested 29-year-old Alan Lassiter after he admitted he’d tried drowning his three small children in an apartment complex’s pond.

After Lassiter tossed his children into the pond Sunday night, an off duty sheriff’s deputy who lives in the complex was able to pull out Lassiter’s daughters, ages 3 and 5, and start administering CPR. Lassiter’s 7-year-old son was able to get away unharmed and run for help.

Lassiter called 911 afterwards and told the dispatcher what he had done, and why he did it. As you may have already guessed, it was everyone else’s fault but his own.

“I just drowned my two daughters in the lake back there ’cause CPS wanted to take them away from me,” he said. “I was dealing with some pedophilia things, OK, OK. I was dealing with some sexual desires that I was trying to get some help with, but instead they turned their back on me, the whole system, and tried to take my kids, and they took the rest of the, of the little happiness that I had.”

He then goes on to tell the dispatcher that chucking his children in a lake was a teaching aid that he hopes they will learn from.…

Fidel LopezFORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Police say 24-year-old Fidel Lopez became so enraged over his girlfriend saying her ex-husband’s name during sex that he killed her by pulling out part of her intestines through her vagina.

At around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, Lopez called 9-1-1 to report his girlfriend, 31-year-old Maria Nemeth, was having difficulty breathing and was going to die.

When police arrived at the couple’s apartment, they found several holes in the apartment’s drywall, a closet door was lying in a hallway, and the rear sliding glass door had been shattered.

They found Lopez crying in the bathroom beside Nemeth, who was lying dead in a pool of blood. Officers also found a large amount of blood on the floor inside a closet, along with several chunks of bloody tissue.

When questioned, Lopez told police that he and Nemeth had been drinking Tequila and then started having rough sex. Lopez said that after he inserted several objects into Nemeth’s vagina, at her request, she went to the bathroom where she vomited and started having trouble breathing.…

Jerry NicholsCREST HILL, IL — Jerry Nichols, the 62-year-old man who ran over his wife the stomped on her face until she died, has been convicted of murder.

Back in 2013, Nichols called police to report he had accidentally ran over his wife, 55-year-old Diane Nichols, with his Honda sedan. Responding paramedics reported arriving at the scene to see Nichols stomping on the face of his wife of 12 years.

Diane Nichols was rushed to the hospital where she would be pronounced dead later that day, and Nichols would eventually be charged with two counts of first-degree murder. During his trial, jurors would learn that Nichols gave police multiple accounts of what happened that morning.

In one account he accidentally ran over her once; in another he ran over her twice. One time he said he didn’t know the car was in gear; the other he said his foot slipped off the gas pedal. But none of this explained Diane’s head injuries, which a forensic expert would describe as being consistent with a stomping, or the fact that paramedics witnessed him tap dancing on his wife’s head.…

skalitzkyMADISON, WI – Matthew Skalitzky, 40, has been arrested after he used a 4-foot sword to stab and decapitate his 68-year-old mother.

Matthew Skalitzky spent the night at his parents, Jane and Joseph Skalitzky, and ate breakfast with them the following morning.

At around 11:30 a.m. he told his parents that he was ready to go home so his mother offered to drive him the 4-miles to the townhouse he shared with a roommate.

The roommate, who has not been named, recalls Jane being friendly and greeting him before going upstairs with Matthew, who seemed “distant and unemotional.” Within 10 to 15 minutes, the roommate heard “stomping noises” upstairs and went to investigate.

On his way up the stairs he says he heard Jane yelling, “No, no, no!” When he reached Matthew and Jane he found Matthew holding a 4-foot sword over the headless body of his mother. Jane’s hands were also wounded, which I assume was the result of Jane trying to defend herself.

The roommate moved towards Matthew, who surrendered the bloodied sword to him, then lead Matthew to the couch as if he were a child.…

Lisa BorchDENMARK – Lisa Borch, 15, and her 29-year-old boyfriend convicted of murder after teen’s mother found stabbed to death.

Borch was a love-struck teenager who had her heart broken when her radical Muslim boyfriend left her to move to Sweden. So she went down to the refugee center to shop for a new man. Plenty more fish in the sea!

She met Iraqi Bakhtiar Mohammed Abdulla, 29, and became obsessed with all things ISIL, watching hours of YouTube clips showing beheadings carried out by Jihadi John.

But parents, right? They just don’t understand! Lisa’s mom was less than enthusiastic about her daughters love for terrorists and her much older boyfriend; arguments becoming so frequent that Lisa’s twin sister moved out of the house.

So the couple planned how to live out their happy ever after. Rather than white picket fences, they dreamed of slaughtering the mother who opposed their love, then running away to Syria to fight with ISIS.

Borch went so far as to show her twin the knife she planned to use to kill their mother.…

justin lawsonOKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Justin Lawson, 22, has been arrested for the rape and murder of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter.

In the early morning of September 3rd, Keah Cudjo went to school leaving her daughter, Sheleah, in the care of her boyfriend, Justin Lawson. Sheleah had been ill the night before with diarrhea and vomiting.

Not long after she left she received a call from Lawson letting her know that Sheleah had peed her pants and was shaking. Cudjo said she would come home but was told by Lawson that she didn’t need to.

A few hours later she would receive another call from Lawson saying that Sheleah was throwing up again, prompting Cudjo to leave school to check on her. When she arrived she found her little girl unresponsive.

“By the time I got here, my baby was on her back foaming at her mouth,” Keah said. “The first thing I did was ran to my baby screaming for someone to take me to the hospital.”

Lawson left before EMS arrived and transported Sheleah to Children’s Hospital where she was pronounced dead.…

Paulette RichardsonURIE, WY — Joseph Richardson and Paulette Richardson are facing manslaughter charges after they let Paulette’s 16-year-old son drink until he died from alcohol poisoning.

According to court documents, Paulette’s son, Kendal Ball, had been expressing a desire to drink. Paulette would tell police that the boy’s biological father was an alcoholic and she was afraid her son would turn out like him.

In order to stop that from happening, the couple came up with a genius plan to let the kid drink. Joseph would explain later that he was told the best way to stop the boy from drinking would be to let him drink until he got sick.

So on the night July 6, Ball started drinking with his step-father and a family friend. How much the kid drank in a two hour time-span all depends on who you ask.

Paulette said her son drank a few shots of Fireball and a few shots of Jack Daniel’s. Joseph said his stepson drank a few ounces of Jack Daniel’s.…

Daniel FurlongCONSTANTINE, MI — Police have arrested 65-year-old Daniel Furlong and charged him with the murder of Jodi Parrack, the 11-year-old girl found strangled to death in a cemetery back in 2007.

Out of the almost 5000 articles I have written for the site, only a handful stick in my memory. Some because of how gruesome they were or the impact they made on the site. But others because they seemed like they would be solved quickly, but weren’t.

A few examples of these would be the murder of Holly Bobo, Phylicia Barnes, Morgan Harrington and the double murder of Taylor Paschal-Placker and Skyla Whitaker. Slowly but surely, those cases have all been solved, for the most part.

But the murder of 11-year-old Jodi Parrack remained unsolved for eight years – almost the amount of time that this site has existed.

For anyone of you who are not aware of her case, Jodi disappeared while riding her bicycle in the town of Constantine, Michigan. Her body would be found by her mother later that day, lying in the local cemetery.…
