RUSSIA – Ivan Kuzmin has been accused of setting his new bride on fire because she had sex with an ex-lover on their wedding night after he fell asleep.
According to reports, Veronika Filippova, 27, had an affair with an ex-boyfriend after Kuzmin passed out drunk at their wedding reception. She was so consumed with guilt that she later told Kuzmin everything.
This turned out to be a big mistake, because Kuzmin, 30, responded by dousing her with alcohol while she was sleeping. When she woke up and tried to escape, Kuzmin set her on fire with a cigarette lighter.
Filippova was rushed to the hospital with burns to over 80 percent of her body but would die a few hours later. Kuzmin was arrested and has admitted to murdering Filippova. He’s now facing 15 years in prison.
Too bad Kuzmin never admitted to Filippova that he’d once served ten years in prison for the attempted rape and murder an underage girl. Had he, none of this may have ever happened.…Continue Reading
ALVIN, TX – Last year we reported on David Barajas, the man who was charged with murder after he allegedly shot a drunk driver to death moments after he fatally struck his two sons. His trial started yesterday.
On Dec 7, 2012, David Barajas’ truck ran out of gas on a rural road yards from his home. He and his two sons, 12-year-old David Barajas and 11-year-old Caleb Barajas, jumped out and began pushing the truck while Barajas’ wife and two daughters remained inside the vehicle.
At around this same time, 20-year-old Jose Banda was driving drunk when he plowed into the rear of the pickup. Caleb and his brother would both die after becoming pinned between the two vehicles. Jose Banda wold die from a bullet wound to the head.
Several witnesses present at the scene of the accident told police that after the crash, David Barajas walked the short distance to his home then returned to Jose Banda’s car. That’s when they heard gunshots. David Barajas was subsequently arrested and charged with murder.…Continue Reading
TAMPA, FL – Police have charged 24-year-old Austin Hamilton with first-degree murder after he admitted to using a belt to whip a 1-year-old to death because the boy peed on him during a diaper change.
On Saturday, the child’s mother went to work and left him and his 6-year-old brother with Hamilton in a room at the Motel 6 where she lived. Hamilton, who is not the father of either child, called 911 later that night to report the boy was having trouble breathing.
The child would die after being rushed to the hospital by paramedics who arrived and found him unresponsive on a bed. Hamilton initially claimed he didn’t hit or punish the boy in any way, and that the boy was not involved in any accidents.
That story would change after the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s Office report stated the child died as a result of blunt force trauma to the lower abdomen, and ruled his death a homicide.
When detectives confronted Hamilton with these findings, he changed his story and admitted he was responsible for the boy’s death.…Continue Reading
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Briana Holland is facing a slew of charges, including attempted murder, after the 22-year-old admitted to stuffing her newborn baby inside a trash can and leaving it to die.
Last Friday night, an employee at United Technology Carrier Corporation called a maintenance worker to a bathroom because they thought they heard an animal in the bathroom’s trash can.
The maintenance worker looked inside the trash can and found a newborn baby wrapped in bags used to dispose of sanitary napkins. The “lower half of the baby was put in a brown paper bag” and the “baby’s head was inside in another brown paper bag.”
Even worse, after the bags were removed, the baby was found to have toilet paper tightly wrapped “approximately 15 times” around his neck, court documents said, and had tissue and a plastic tampon applicator in his mouth. The baby was purple, cold and gasping for air before he stopped breathing.
The maintenance worker quickly removed the items from the baby’s mouth, wrapped the baby in a shirt and used his hands to stop the bleeding umbilical cord.…Continue Reading
TALLAHASSEE, FL – Police have arrested 63-year-old Martha White after she was accused of stabbing her 7-year-old grandson to death because she was fed up with babysitting him and his brother.
Mason Rhinehart, 7, and his 8-year-old brother were playing video games when White walked and told them she had a surprise for them. She took Mason into the bathroom and locked the door behind her.
Mason’s older brother said he then heard Mason crying and begging for his life, saying: “I don’t want to die, please don’t kill me.”
The boy said he tried to open the door to help his brother, but was unsuccessful. Instead, he called the cops and his father before finding a hiding spot.
White eventually walked out of the bathroom covered in blood, then left the house with a bottle of wine. But before she walked out, she reportedly told the boy that she “had a surprise for him too.”
Police arrived at the home within five minutes and found Mason lying on the bathroom floor suffering from multiple stab wounds to the chest.…Continue Reading
HEBRON, MD – Paul Hurst and Cary Edwards have been accused of severely beating their roommate, trying to carve a Juggalo tattoo off his arm, then setting the man on fire.
The incident reportedly happened Thursday shortly after 1 a.m. after Hurst, 33, and Edwards, 35, got into an argument with their roommate, 31-year-old Zachary Swanson.
The argument escalated, and the suspects beat the shit out of Swanson. Afterwards, they attempted to carve a Juggalo tattoo off Swanson’s arm. Unsuccessful at removing the tattoo, they decided to burn it off by pouring a flammable liquid on Swanson’s arm and setting it on fire.
Swanson was left on the ground for hours before the pair dropped him off at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Swanson was later flown to a burn center in Baltimore, where he remains in critical condition with extensive injuries, including severe burns.
Hurst and Edwards were arrested and charged with first and second degree attempted murder, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment and a deadly weapon charge.…Continue Reading
ORLANDO, FL – The family of Rebecca Sedwick, the 12-year-old girl who jumped to her death last year, has filed a lawsuit against one one of the girl’s alleged bullies, the School Board of Polk County, Cemex Construction Materials of Florida.
“I feel like I need to have some definitive answers and get some form of justice for Becca in order to start the whole healing process,” said Tricia Norman, Rebecca’s mother.
According to Norman’s attorney, David Henry, Rebecca’s family is seeking at least $15,000 from each of the defendants in order to “hold those accountable to account.”
For those of you who may have missed this story when it happened last year, Rebecca killed herself by jumping from a tower at an abandoned cement plant. There were reportedly various factors for her doing this, including ongoing harassment from two of her classmates, 14-year-old Guadalupe Shaw and 13-year-old Katelyn Roman.
After Rebecca started dating Guadalupe’s ex-boyfriend, she became the target of repeated physical and online attacks. Aside from the standard-issue name calling, she was also encouraged to kill herself.…Continue Reading
And my eyes just rolled so hard they damn near fell out the back of my head….
Judith Jones, 44, is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault after her failed attempt at making her husband dead… something she had apparently been planning for quite some time.
Police say the couple’s 16-year-old daughter interrupted the attack late last month, quite possibly saving her father’s life. She later told police her mother had been planning to kill her father for about a year.
When questioned, Jones brought up the whole fish filleting spiel. Needless to say, that sorry ass excuse didn’t fly. She eventually admitted to the deed.
“I’ve seen stabbings before, but I’ve never had anybody tell us that they were dreaming that they were filleting fish when they committed a crime. It’s a first for that,” said Sheriff Fred Abdalla.…Continue Reading
MEXICO CITY - Oscar Otero Aguilar died over the weekend after accidentally shooting himself in the head while posing with a gun for a Facebook picture.
According to the Ministry of Public Security, the 21-year-old was drinking with two friends when he put a gun to his head to take a picture for his Facebook account. His friends say that Aguilar accidentally pulled the trigger, shooting himself once in the head.
Police in the area arrived on the scene and found that Aguilar had a bullet wound to the forehead and was still alive. He wasn’t alive for long, as he was pronounced dead once paramedics got to the home — ensuring a Darwin Award nomination.
His body will be handed over to the family once an autopsy has been completed. I’m guessing officials want to make sure the friends’ story of Aguilar shooting himself jives with the forensic evidence, especially since one of his friends, 21-year-old Omar Campos Abner Vives, was arrested; while “El Paco” fled the scene.
This makes the second person we’ve reported on this year to die while posing for a selfie.…Continue Reading
The alleged victim in this cookie caper, an unidentified 49-year-old woman, told police she believed her roommate, Allen Hall, was joking when he threatened to kill her for eating three of his Chips Ahoy! cookies for breakfast.
The woman told police she was getting dressed in the bathroom Wednesday morning, when Hall started pounding on the bathroom, making death threats and stuff.
She opened the door, she said, and exclaimed, “If you’re going to kill me, then go ahead!”
Probably not the smartest thing to say to an apparently unhinged, cookie-less motherfucker first thing in the morning, ya know.
According to the victim, Hall wrapped his hands around her throat and threw her into the tub, causing her to hit the back of her head on the tile. He then reportedly climbed on top of her and proceeded to choke her until she found it difficult to speak or breathe.…Continue Reading
TALLAHASSEE, FL — Devante Johnson has been charged with attempted murder after the 18-year-old allegedly tried stabbing a man to death while having sex with him in a Tallahassee cemetery.
Police say Johnson and the victim were having sex in a car at the Oakland cemetery around 11 p.m. when Johnson, “referred to a former boyfriend of (the victim’s) by name and said no one would have to worry about (the victim) anymore,” according to court documents.
Johnson then pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim three times in the chest and one time in each arm. The unidentified man was able to kick Johnson out of the car and lock the door.
As Johnson attempted to get back into the car through a partially rolled-down window, the victim sped out of the cemetery and crashed through the cemetery’s fence in the process.
The victim flagged down police, alerting them that he’d been stabbed. He was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery for a punctured lung and lacerated liver.…Continue Reading
Last Thursday, Millsap took the family collie, “Penny” out for a walk but never returned home. Hours later, a couple jogging along the Macomb Orchard Trail found Penny standing guard over Millsap’s dead body, in a drainage ditch 15 to 20 feet off the trail.
“The dog protected the body, stayed with the body, actually moved in and out,” Armada Police Chief Howard Smith said. “They went by the dog the first time, thinking the dog may be coming after them. When they came back the other way on the trail and the dog was still there that made the people curious.”
Police have not released how Millsap was killed, but have said she was not stabbed or shot. They also stated detectives have interviewed relatives and Millsap’s boyfriend, “but they are not considered suspects in her death.”
Authorities are asking anyone who may have seen April on July 24 to call the state police tip line, 877 616-4677.…Continue Reading

LONG BEACH, CA – A home burglary turned to shit for two people after the 80-year-old homeowner walked in on them and ended up shooting a woman to death.
Tom Greer said he came home Tuesday night to find a man and woman inside his home. Greer said they both tackled him and jumped on top of him before robbing his safe of thousands of dollars.
What the couple didn’t know was that Greer was not defenseless… he had a .22 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver in his pocket. The pair ran from the home when they saw Greer was armed, but the woman wasn’t quick enough.
After firing at her in an alley behind his house, Greer said the woman stumbled and then begged for her life. “She says, ‘Don’t shoot me, I’m pregnant! I’m going to have a baby!’ And I shot her anyway,” Greer said.
When asked what happened next, Greer said he shot the woman a second time. “She was dead. I shot her twice, she best be dead … (The man) had run off and left her,” he said.…Continue Reading
MIAMI, FL – Miguel Ruiz Lobo, 42, has been accused of killing 11-year-old Martha Guzman after the girl talked her mother into breaking up with him.
On June 22, Guzman was found dead inside the home she shared with her mother and three-year-old brother. Her neck and wrists had been slashed. Her death was originally believed to be a suicide since Guzman had a history of cutting, but autopsy results revealed her death was a homicide.
Focus quickly turned to Ruiz, the ex-boyfriend of Guzman’s mother. Ruiz used to live with the family, but Guzman’s mother had broken up with him five months ago at the urging of her daughter.
During their investigation, police noted Ruiz had fresh scratches on his arms and face, so they took a swab of his DNA and sent it off to be tested against fingernail scrapings collected from Guzman. He told police he had not seen the girl in days, but police had proof that was not true.
They had surveillance footage from a neighbor’s security camera that showed Ruiz entering Guzman’s apartment at approximately 10:28 A.M.…Continue Reading
FLINT, MI – Back in 2011, 23-year-old Donovan Haynes beat his toddler to death in an attempt to turn her into a lesbian. On Monday, a judge sentenced Haynes to 18 years and nine months in prison.
Ti’Airra Woodward was rushed to the hospital after the 2-year-old was found unresponsive in her mother’s basement. A medical examiner’s report indicated she died of internal bleeding from a lacerated liver caused by blunt force trauma to the abdomen.
There were also adult human bite marks all over the girl’s body.
Haynes was quickly taken into custody and would tell police that he only bit his daughter in the leg because she wet the bed. However, a pre-sentence investigation report claimed that Haynes beat the girl in an attempt to toughen her up and to turn her gay so she would avoid men like him.
Facing life behind bars on charges of open murder, first-degree murder and torture, Haynes eventually pleaded no contest to second-degree murder to avoid a trail which could have netted him 31 years in prison.…Continue Reading

Matthew Burdette killed himself on November 29. His family had noticed the once happy, popular teen had become withdrawn in the days leading up to his suicide, but say they never saw it coming.
Matthew left a note that stated he had no friends and that he could no longer handle school. Wanting answers, his family started asking questions – starting with school officials at University City High School.
They say school officials wouldn’t tell them anything about what may have happened at the school to have caused Matthew to suddenly hate school so bad that it would be part of his reasoning for ending his own life.
However, other students didn’t have such issues. They told Matthew’s family that their son was being relentlessly bullied over a video that was posted online that went viral.…Continue Reading
