On January 26, Iris Hernandez Rivas called 911 and said she found her daughter face-down in the bathtub, “unresponsive with her hands clenched at her side.”
When first responders arrived at her apartment, Hernandez Rivas reportedly told them her daughter had been in the shower for 15 to 20 minutes when a noise from the bathroom prompted her to check on her child.
After finding her daughter face-down in the tub, she took her out and put her on the bedroom floor. She then called her boyfriend and her brother for help before calling 911 an hour after finding her daughter.
Paramedics took the child to the hospital in serious condition where medical staff found “reddish bruising on multiple regions of her body,” an injury to her brain, a “small liver contusion” and “patterned injuries that are the result of blunt force trauma with an object.”
When confronted about the injuries, Hernandez Rivas admitted she kicked the child in the stomach because she was angry that she wouldn’t brush her teeth.…
The incident happened Friday night after a bus driver called police to report a suspicious woman at the New Jersey Transit platform.
When officers approached the woman, identified as 20-year-old Autumn Matacchiera, she grabbed a random 5-year-old girl who had been standing nearby with her mother.
Matacchiera then gave the girl the ol’ heave-ho, tossing her onto the tracks as a train approached.
Luckily, police were able to get in front of the train to signal it to stop as the boyfriend of the girl’s mother got the girl to safety.
The girl was taken to the hospital to treat a facial cut and some bruising, while Matacchiera was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.
Once she is released, she will be taken to jail on an attempted murder charge.…
Frederick Jay Bowdy was building an acting career, including a role in the 2016 film, Prepper, some television roles, and was in the middle of starring in a sports film, Going Vertical.
To make ends meet, the 33-year-old father of at least six children also worked as an exotic dancer in Hollywood. But everything changed for Bowdy last Thursday after he was arrested in Santa Clarita on suspicion of sexual assault.
Not a lot of details on the sexual assault allegation, but he was the following day after posting $100,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Janice Banks.
Days later, Bowdy was using Facebook’s livestream to broadcast from inside his car, telling anyone watching that he was going to commit suicide. This prompted an out of state family member to call police.
However, before authorities could intervene, Bowdy fatally shot himself in the head while sitting in his vehicle.…
The two hour live-stream happened Sunday night inside the bathroom as Venant made a noose from a scarf. She then attached the scarf to the shower door frame and hanged herself.
One of Venant’s friends saw the live-stream and contacted police, but police first showed up at the friend’s house. They were then provided the wrong address before finally finding the correct residence.
Once inside the home, they found Venant hanging in the bathroom as her foster parents slept. Despite efforts to save her, Venant would be pronounced dead at the hospital.
Administrators with the Florida Department of Children and Families aren’t saying much about the circumstances surrounding Venant’s suicide, only stating that police were investigating the death of a child in the care of a foster family.
“We are absolutely horrified and devastated by the news of this young girl’s death,” said DCF Secretary Mike Carroll. “We will do everything we can to support this family and all those who cared for her as they begin to heal from this tragedy.…
A man called police to report he had come home to find his autistic son, 21-year-old Alex Santiago, dead in the living room, and his younger son watching television in the master bedroom.
When police arrived at the home, they found the autistic boy dead in the living room near a bloody baseball bat. He had suffered massive head trauma and had a sword sticking out of his gut.
Police found the victim’s 17-year-old brother in a bedroom watching television. He was cooperative with police and readily admitted he had attacked and killed his brother with the bat and sword. He said that afterwards he took a shower, changed clothes, and started watching TV.
Not done with all the confessing, the teen also admitted he had tried to kill his brother the year before by setting the family mobile home on fire. He stated he had locked his brother in his room and then poured gasoline on the floor of his room and his parents’ room, then set it on fire.…
Video from a surveillance camera inside the classroom at American School of the Northeast shows the boy stand up and use a .22 caliber pistol he brought from home to shoot a boy sitting in front of him.
He then shoots the teacher before shooting two other students point blank in the head.
Afterwards, it looks as if he tries shooting himself in the head, but the gun either jams or misfires. He seems to be telling other students to leave the classroom just before the teen puts the gun in his mouth and fires.
According to Nuevo Leon state Gov. Jaime Rodriguez, the 24-year-old teacher, a 14-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were shot in the head and currently “fighting between life and death.” A 15-year-old classmate was shot in the arm and is expected to survive.
A motive behind the shooting is not known at this time, but reports are that the teen was being treated for depression.…
Mark Pascual was playing Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) with his friend, 25-year-old Ferdinand Madamba Jr., at the Barangay 2 Internet cafe.
According to local reports, Pascual was becoming irritated with Madamba because he kept winning matches and trash talking Pascual.
Madamba challenged Pascual to a fist fight outside the cafe, which Pascual accepted. Once outside, Pascual took out a knife and stabbed Madamba multiple times in the neck and stomach, ultimately leading to his death.
Pascual then fled the scene after murdering his long-time friend. Madamba’s brother, who goes by the name of PJ, discovered his brother lying in a pool of his own blood a few minutes later.
Pascual has not been apprehended at this time, and local authorities have launched a manhunt to find him.
According to reports, Pascual and Madamba have been friends for roughly 10 years. PJ said the two had gotten into a fight earlier in their village.…
The teen, Alexander Kireev, murdered his father Victor, 43, his sister Victoria, 14, and his grandmother Vera, 67. All of the victims were found in their home suffering from multiple axe wounds.
Victoria and Vera were already dead by time police found them, but Victor was still alive. He would die from his injuries after being taken to the hospital.
Some news outlets are reporting the family were murdered in their beds, alongside the same picture of a blood-soaked bed, but a Russian news outlet says the family were attacked during a heated argument, and that Alexander threw the axe into his sister’s head as she tried to run away.
According to friends and neighbors of the family, the teen has been suffering from depression ever since his mother died from cancer three years ago, and did not like his father’s new girlfriend. They say Alexander had become more withdrawn lately, and was describing himself as a Satanist.…
On Saturday, 38-year-old Amy Robertson was witnessed acting frantic outside of her apartment she shares with her son, 12-year-old Caden Berry.
Robertson was crying and reportedly walked into the apartment building’s courtyard and began yelling about demons.
When a neighbor asked Robertson where her son was, Robertson reportedly told her that Berry was under a blanket inside the apartment.
“There was a recliner tipped over and he was halfway on it under a blanket,” said Brenda King. “I pulled the blanket back and I could tell he was gone.”
Police were called to the scene where Berry was pronounced dead at the scene. Robertson was still at the scene when police arrived and was taken into custody.
She has been booked into the Marion County Correctional Facility without bail on an aggravated murder charge. Her next court appearance is scheduled for tomorrow.

Police were called to the home of Larry and Courtney Taylor on Friday night after a relative went to check on the family after not hearing from them all day.
“He went over there to check on them. No one had heard from there that day,” said Sheriff Colan Harrell. “He saw a body, left and called 911.”
When deputies arrived at the home, they had to kick in a back door to gain entry. Once inside, they encountered 41-year-old Courtney Taylor who was brandishing a pistol.
“He told her to put the weapon down and she didn’t,” Harrell said.
When Taylor aimed the pistol at the deputies, Deputy Sanders shot Taylor twice, once in the chest and once in the abdomen. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Deputies would then find the dead bodies of Taylor’s 56-year-old husband Larry, 18-year-old daughter Jesse and 13-year-old daughter Jolee.…
Police say 64-year-old Edgard Fuentes broke into his estranged wife’s home Thursday night and poured gasoline on her as she was sleeping.
Her son, 32-year-old Eric Montes, ran to her bedroom after hearing her yell in surprise and got into a struggle with Fuentes.
Montes was also doused with gasoline in his attempts to stop Fuentes, but he was unable to prevent Fuentes from igniting the gasoline and flee the home.
The resulting fire engulfed the home, destroying it. One neighbor described what he witnessed after hearing screaming.
“When I heard some screaming, they were in the back yard. I saw the lady rolling on the floor on fire. There was another lady crying for help,” he said.
Daisy Tapia, 61, and her son were both rushed to the hospital where they remained in critical condition for hours before dying from their injuries.…
According to police, 65-year-old Rebecca Rawson went to the home of 83-year-old Eugene Matthews to retrieve a dog, Bart, that belonged to Rawson’s estranged husband, who died last week.
Matthews was a friend Rawson’s estranged husband, and took the dog in after his death.
When Rawson showed up to the home with her daughter and brother-in-law, she stayed in the car. When her brother-in-law knocked on the door, a woman answered the door and he called the dog’s name.
When Bart came to the door, he picked him up and took him back to the car. That’s when Matthews came out of the house and fired a handgun into the air twice before firing once at the car Rawson was sitting in.
The shot went through the windshield and hit Rawson in the face, killing her. Matthews’ family is saying he acted in self-defense, and that the Rawson family blasted through the gate and kicked down the front door, but the sheriff’s office said that account contradicts the evidence gathered from the scene.…
On Tuesday morning, police responded to a home after family members inside called 911 to report an assault.
When police arrived they found 52-year-old Pamela Wolosz dead inside the home, and her 16-year-old daughter seriously injured.
Police say the 12-year-old son and brother of the victims had stabbed them both multiple times with a chef’s knife that he had taken from the kitchen.
Ashland police Chief Tighe O’Meara said the 12-year-old cooperated with police and that the situation was “contained immediately and there was no threat as soon as officers got on scene.”
The boy’s sister was rushed to the hospital and is expected to survive. The boy was arrested on allegations of homicide and assault and is currently being held at a juvenile detention facility in Medford.
Although a 12-year-old can be charged as an adult, an attorney with the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office said they haven’t decided what will happen in this case.…
SILVER CREEK, GA – Videos taken by Katelyn Davis, the 12-year-old girl who live-streamed her suicide, are currently being published online and offer a real glimpse into her home life.
All I can say about it is that if I had to live in a household like that at 12, I don’t know if I would have hanged myself, but I surely would have murdered someone.
I have included two videos of Katelyn having an argument with her mother, which you can watch below, and it is like the breakfast scene in Rob Zombie’s Halloween.
During this argument you hear everything Katelyn had complained about in some of her other online videos, and she was not exaggerating.
She and her mother argue about Katelyn constantly having to watch her unruly siblings, about her mother’s drug use and bringing men over, Katelyn’s cutting and even Katelyn expressing her anger over her mother not immediately kicking out her man after an incident in a pool. It’s a goddamn train wreck.
Look, I’m sure no one would like to have a recording of an argument of themselves and their kid put out there, especially if you didn’t know you were being recorded and the person listening didn’t have context.…
On Monday night at around 9pm, Mingming Chen called police to report her 5-year-old daughter, Ashley Zhao, was missing.
She told police that she last saw her daughter hours earlier and felt she had wondered out of Ang’s Asian Cuisine, the restaurant her family operates.
Police and locals began a search for Ashley, and an endangered child alert was issued. These were called off when Ashley’s body was discovered found “deceased and concealed” inside the family’s restaurant.
It was then that investigators learned the truth about what happened to the girl.
According to police, Chen repeatedly punched her daughter in the head for reasons unknown at this time. The girl’s father, Liang Zhao, found his daughter on the ground with a green liquid coming from her mouth.
When he tried washing off the liquid, he noticed she was no longer breathing and attempted CPR, but was unable to save Ashley.…
For those of you who may have missed this horrible story from August, Victoria Martens was killed on her 10th birthday and her dismembered remains were found wrapped in a smoldering blanket inside her family’s apartment.
Investigators would learn that Victoria’s mother, 35-year-old Michelle Martens, would solicit men to have sex with her daughter for her own sexual gratification. These men would include co-workers and men she met online.
One of these men she met online, 32-year-old Fabian Gonzales, raped Victoria before he strangled her to death as Martens watched. Gonzales and his cousin, 32-year-old Jessica Kelley, would try to dispose of Victoria’s body by dismembering it in a bathtub before wrapping it in a blanket and setting it on fire.
Martens, Gonzales and Kelley were all arrested and are in jail on a myriad of charges. Their trials are scheduled for October. You can read more about the initial reports of Victoria’s murder by clicking here.…
There’s a lot of details with this case, so I’m going to start at the beginning.
Back in July, 41-year-old Sara Packer went to police to report her adopted daughter, 14-year-old Grace Packer, had run away from home after an argument. She explained she had done this before and that on this occasion, she had taken $300 from the home.
Over the next several months, the Abington Township Police Department investigated Grace’s disappearance, but without the help of Sara. They say Sara ignored them, didn’t let Grace’s family know she was missing and continued to collect a Social Security check in the girl’s name – spending over $3000 of the funds.
In November, Packer was charged with hindering attempts to find her daughter and later released on bail.
On October 31, hunters would find a head and torso in the woods and called police.…
According to reports, Ian Sevostjanov was getting ready for school Thursday morning when his mother disciplined him for a “behavioral issue.”
After arguing with his mother, he was sent to his room where he used a gun to fatally shoot himself.
Ian was pronounced dead at the scene despite first responders doing “everything they could” to save him, said Clearwater Police Chief Dan Slaughter during a news conference Thursday morning.
Authorities were initially vague about what transpired in the apartment Ian shared with his parents and brother, but now say the boy’s death is being investigated as an apparent suicide.
Police are still investigating Ian’s death and determining how he got his hands on the family’s gun.
“We’re trying to definitely approach this taking care of all our responsibilities, while also being respectful that there’s an emotional trauma that’s occurred,” said Slaughter.
He went on to add that this should serve as a lesson to gun owners that they need to ensure firearms are not within easy reach of children.…
