Authorities claim 18-year-old Brandon Davis, apparently high on some sort of synthetic drug, attacked his neighbor early Sunday morning, biting the man on his face, hands and neck while yelling something about eating the man’s eyeballs.
The victim, 54-year-old Nick Sorace, told police he heard a commotion at about 2:00 a.m. Sunday, and when he looked out the window to see what all the fuss was about, he witnessed Davis beating a dog.
“He thought the dog was the devil,” Sorace said. “And then the next thing he sees is me, illuminated — and all of a sudden, I’m the devil.”
Davis apparently kicked in Sorace’s front door, chased a woman through the house and out the back door, then returned. He started beating and biting Sorace, continuing with his “You’re the Devil” spiel.
“He broke a flower pot over my head, he was sticking me in the neck with pieces…he stuck his thumb all the way in my eye socket and he just ripped my mouth and he bit my face.…

GERMANTOWN, MD – Police have accused a woman of stabbing her two young children to death while performing an exorcism.
Police responded to the home of 28-year-old Zakieya Avery Friday morning after neighbors called to report a car outside of her house with its door open and a knife on the sidewalk. When police arrived at the home, they forced their way inside the home after seeing blood inside the car.
Inside the home they found two of Avery’s children dead, and two of them injured. Police say 1-year-old Norell Harris and his 2-year-old sister Zyana, were both found stabbed to death in their beds.

GALIVANTS FERRY, SC – Police have arrested 18-year-old Chris Heuser after they say he planned to rape and kill a teenage girl in his neighborhood.
On Sunday, a teen called police to report she’d come home to find one of her windows broken and her car tires slashed. She called back a second time to report finding a wallet and knives in a ditch next to her house. What had her more scared than a possible burglary was the handwritten note found inside the wallet.
It was a 14-part plan to stab, rape and dump her body, complete with estimated times to complete each of the tasks. She said she believed the note was written by Heuser, a boy with mental issues who lived down the street with his foster parents. He’d repeatedly stopped by her house hours earlier saying he was searching for his cell phone.
Investigators paid Heuser a visit at his home and found a letter with “what appeared to be the exact handwriting as the letter found in the ditch next to the house that was broken into”, according to a police report. …
ROCKLEDGE, FL – Police say a 36-year-old man brutally beat his stepmother before stuffing her into the trunk of his car.
There are no details regarding what prompted the beating, but the 57-year-old woman told police Thomas Youngman beat her head and face, slammed her head on the garage floor, stuffed her in the trunk of his car and informed her he was going to kill her.
She said Youngman began to drive off, but stopped to open the trunk and take away her cell phone. He then pulled her out of the trunk by her hair and began beating her again. Somehow she was able to escape and run to a neighbor’s for help as Youngman fled the scene.
The woman was taken to the hospital and Youngman was arrested later after he returned home. He was charged with attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery with great bodily harm, kidnapping, and resisting a law enforcement official without violence.

REDLANDS, CA — Police have arrested 28-year-old Steven Sunny after they say he planted a pipe bomb underneath his ex-wife’s vehicle in an attempt to blow her up, along with the couple’s two young children.
The woman was with her two children in the parking lot of the Redlands Town Center Monday when she noticed a suspicious device underneath her SUV. She immediately called 911 and police responded, quickly evacuating several nearby businesses and taping off several aisles in the parking lot.
Customers and employees were stranded for several hours as the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad used a robot device to remove a pipe bomb from underneath her vehicle and use dogs to perform a sweep of the area to ensure there were no other explosive devices.
Later that night, police would arrest Sunny at a San Bernardino trailer park where his girlfriend lives. He was charged with three counts of attempted murder and possession of an explosive device with intent to kill. He’s being held on $1 million bail.…

Assistant State’s Attorney Elizabeth Dibler said what happened was that Tucker accidentally struck one of the women as they crossed the street and wouldn’t claim he was flagged down by the women until later. …
BERNE, ID – A woman has been charged with attempted murder after she taped a sock inside her infant’s mouth and then left him in a closet face down.
Earlier this month, 22-year-old Sasha Hunt waited until her husband left the house to tape a sock inside the mouth of their three-month-old son before wrapping him in a blanket and placing him face-down inside a closet.
When her husband, Nathan, returned home 20 minutes later, he asked Sasha if she was ready to go to bed. She said she was, so he went downstairs to turn off the television. That’s when he heard a muffled cry coming from his youngest son’s room. When he went to check, he found that his son was not in his crib.
As he headed towards the cries coming from inside the closet, Sasha reportedly told him to stop. He didn’t, and found his son on the floor of the closet. He immediately took the tape off the baby’s face and the sock out of his mouth.…

Redmond, WA – The ex-wife of Eric Lehtinen arrived at his home Tuesday to pick up their 4-year-old son and found that Lehtinen had attempted to kill the boy by injecting him with heroin.
When the unidentified woman got inside the locked home after a job interview, she found Lehtinen unconscious, as was their son who also had a syringe sticking out of his chest. Both were rushed to the hospital where staff found indications of needle marks on the boy’s neck and buttocks.
Tests would reveal he’d been injected with a drug cocktail of heroin, ketamine, morphine, codeine, and other drugs. The latest reports have him listed in stable condition, but doctors are unsure of what long-term damage the drugs may have caused.
Lehtinen was released from the hospital and sent straight to jail. He did not collect $200. He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder. He’s being held on $3 million bail after prosecutors described him as a “man who is willing to inject his 4-year-old son with heroin in an attempt to kill the boy” and a “dangerous man willing to do anything.” If convicted, Lehtinen will be looking at a minimum of 15 years behind bars.…
UMATILLA, FL – Florida police say a man kidnapped a 14-year-old girl, strangled her and drove over her with his SUV after she refused to have sex with him for money.
According to police, Adrian Mendez became angry when the teen refused his $200 offer for sex. Not taking no for an answer, Mendez pulled the teen into his Ford Explorer by her hair, then strangled her until she lost consciousness.
About 90 minutes later, someone watched as Mendez intentionally backed over the girl with his vehicle and then sped forward, spinning the tires on her body.
“He was on top of her with the vehicle. And I started screaming at him. He backed up, he literally backed up and hit her again and he went to take off because he heard us screaming at him,” said Shane Green, who had been outside barbecuing. “He hit his brakes and was spinning his tires on top of that little girl.”
When police arrived on the scene, they found the girl on the side of the road. …
Greenwich, CT – A man told police he “lost it” when he bashed his wife’s skull in with a baseball bat inside their mansion after learning she was leaving him.
Police responded to the $7.3 million estate of Michael and Diane DeMaio on Tuesday after receiving a report of a domestic situation with injuries. Once inside, they found Diane, 54, laying in a pool of blood inside a large closet with three ice packs placed under her badly disfigured head.
“What, hello, what’s going on,” she said before closing her eyes. Police tried to put pressure to a large gash on her head, “but felt it was soft”.
Also in the home was Diane’s elderly mother, Gloria Sica, who was screaming that Michael had attacked her daughter. “That monster hit her and she’s dying,” she screamed. An officer drew his gun on Michael and placed him in custody. The 55-year-old would confess to using a baseball bat to bash his wife’s head in.
“I lost it, I just lost it,” he told the officers as he lay handcuffed on the ground, explaining he became enraged shortly after learning his wife was leaving him.…
KALAMAZOO, MI – Kelli Stapleton has been charged with attempted murder after police say the 45-year-old tried to kill herself and her 13-year-old autistic daughter.
Police said Kelli Stapleton and her daughter, Isabelle, were found Tuesday after having suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning. Kelli was released from the hospital on Thursday, but Isabelle remains unconscious and in critical condition. Doctors fear she may have suffered permanent brain damage.
Matt Stapleton reported his wife and daughter missing Tuesday afternoon after receiving a “disconcerting, despondent” phone message from Kelli and found their van was gone from their home.
Police found mother and daughter unconscious inside the smoke-filled van in a rural area nearby. Kelli had lit a portable charcoal grill inside the van, then locked the doors and closed the windows.
Kelli regained consciousness quickly but has not been forthcoming with police in regards to her motives. Taking a look at her blog, The Status Woe, doesn’t make it too hard to figure out.
In her last entry, dated Sept 3rd, Kelli states she is suffering from a “severe case of battle fatigue” and was upset after learning Isabelle would not be allowed to attend a local school program.…
LANDOVER, MD – A woman has been accused of breaking into her ex-boyfriend’s home where she tried to kill the man’s 8-year-old son.
Police say 26-year-old Helen Marie Newsome broke into her ex-boyfriend’s home early Saturday morning intent on killing his 8-year-old son. After the boy’s father went to work, Newsome allegedly went into the young boy’s bedroom and attacked him while he was sleeping.
According to Andy Amaya, the boy’s father, Newsome first tried to smother his son with a pillow, but the boy responded by head-butting her. Newsome switched tactics and grabbed a dumbbell she used to hit boy on the head. Andy said that his son takes karate lessons and was able to use some of what he had learned to karate chop Newsome before she came at him with a knife. The boy was able to kick her away and then run to a neighbor’s for help.
The boy was taken to the hospital where he received eight stitches on his head and then released, say police.…
JACKSONVILLE, FL – Police say a man in a Florida Best Buy lured a 9-year-old girl into the store’s bathroom where he allegedly beat her and shoved her head in the toilet.
Investigators say the girl was only out of her mother’s sight for a minute or two, but that was all 29-year-old James Tadros needed to get the little girl into the women’s bathroom.
That’s where Tadros reportedly kicked and punched the girl, put a plastic bag over her head and held her head down in the toilet. Authorities say the girl would have been killed had store employees not taken time out from not being able to answer the most basic of technical questions, and walked into the bathroom after hearing the girl’s screams.
“By the grace of God, the customer and employees got in when they did,” Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jay Farhat said. “If it had been any longer this could have been a much worse outcome.”
The employees told police that they looked underneath the handicapped stall and saw Tadros holding the child’s head in the toilet.…
Memphis, TN – Police are looking for two men they say are responsible for dousing another man in gasoline and then setting him on fire in a vacant lot.
Police were called two weeks ago after neighbors heard the victim’s screams. Ellis Dewald says he came across the victim in a vacant area behind two homes. He said the man was burned from the waist down.
“I ain’t ever seen nothing like that in my life. I don’t know what made them do something like that,” said Dewald. “That’s torture. I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to die like that.”
Another neighbor said he did not remember the victim’s name, but will never forget the injured man’s screams. “He was in the weeds. And I just came home from getting groceries. He was over there hollering, his skin peeling off,” said Robert Pearson.
The unidentified man was rushed to the MED in extremely critical condition, suffering burns to 60 percent of his body. He’s still alive, but I’m betting he wishes he wasn’t.…
WEST BEND, WI – A West Bend man has been charged with attempted murder after stabbing his ex-girlfriend in a Walmart parking lot.
Police say Craig Hron, 50, ambushed the woman he used to live with in the parking lot of the Walmart on W. Paradise Drive at around 7 a.m. Sunday, slashing her with a knife as she attempted to get into her car.
“We heard this loud, blood curdling screaming. He was full of rage, just punching away, slamming the door against her, dragging her out, trying to get into the driver’s seat,” said Cody Bauer, one of the victim’s co-workers.
According to police, Bauer tried to step in and stop the attack. He was “punching him in the arm, just trying to get in there,” the Good Samaritan said.
Hron had left his own vehicle parked in the lot of a neighboring business and approached the victim, 45, on foot, knowing where she routinely parked. The victim told investigators that Hron also made threats about harming her son while carrying out the attack.…
Moab, UT – Think you are having a bad day? Well a cop in Utah has been accused of trying to kill his father after he caught him having sex with his wife.
According to reports, 33-year-old Timothy John “TJ” Brewer, a deputy with the sheriff’s department in Grand County, invited his father, Moab fire chief Wesley “Corky” Brewer, to his home for dinner and drinks.
Sometime in the early morning hours, TJ’s wife, Logan Brewer, said she was going to take one of their children to bed. When that kid came back downstairs, TJ realized he was alone and went upstairs to find the door to his 4-year-old son’s bedroom was locked. When he made entry, he found his wife on top of his father, with “his dad’s dick” inside her.
As you can imagine, poor TJ lost it. He “beat the fuck” out of his old man before leaving the room and coming back with a handgun. Logan told investigators that she heard her husband “rack a round” into the gun’s chamber before he started smacking her around a bit.…
