Midway, FL - Police have arrested two teenagers on attempted murder charges, accusing them of beating a 50-year-old man over the head with a hammer and stealing his vehicle. The victim is currently on life support.
On March 26, police were called by a witness who said they heard someone screaming for help and watched as two men pulled a man from a vehicle and drag him into the woods. Police would find the victim lying in the woods.
According to the arrest affidavit, the victim was sitting in his SUV when 18-year-old Julius Bender and 19-year-old Yahaziel Israel approached him and began beating him with a hammer. He was pulled out of his vehicle and dragged into a nearby wooded area where he was beaten over the head with the hammer.
His attackers fled the scene in the man’s car before police arrived and abandoned the vehicle at a short distance away. Investigators would received a tip from Crimeline that named Bender and Israel as the two they were looking for.
The witness to the beating was able to pick the teens out of a photo line-up and stated Bender was the one wielding the hammer. Israel’s fingerprints were found inside and outside of the victim’s vehicle.…Continue Reading
Orlando, FL - Alexis Felton, 22, was caught on video surveillance choking her 11-month-old daughter six times while in the Florida hospital’s pediatric intensive care unit.
The infant wasn’t even a year old, but had already been hospitalized a total of six times. During the infant’s latest stay in the hospital for respiratory problems, Felton was captured on camera disconnecting the wires connected to her daughter and then choking the infant six separate times.
According to the police report, Felton reaches down and chokes the child. The child again can be heard gasping for breath and can be seen kicking its legs in an attempt to get away. On the fifth attempt, the baby went limp and the monitors alerted the nurses.
The report states that when nurses entered the room, Felton said, “She’s having another episode.” The nurses were able to save the baby and the hospital staff called police. They questioned Felton at the scene and then arrested her. She was initially charged with six counts of attempted homicide but Judge Thomas Kirkland later minimized those counts to just one charge of attempted homicide.…Continue Reading
The teen was hanging out with a couple friends late last month, when he allegedly stabbed the 14-year-old victim in the gut with a 4-inch knife, causing a severe laceration to the boy’s intestine.
Afterwards, police say, the alleged stabber walked the stabbee to a nearby auto repair shop, where an ambulance was summoned.
A third teen claims to have witnessed the pokin’, and later told police he heard the alleged stabber tell the victim to pretend he had fallen on the blade.
The 15-year-old, who police say has no criminal background or questionable mental health history, reportedly told police he poked his friend because an Ouija board commanded it.
Weslaco police spokesman J.P. Rodriguez admits that the case is ”a little eerie” but said investigators believe the boy used the Ouija board to rationalize the attack.
“He actually believed what the Ouija board advised him, that the friend was the cause of his problems,” Rodriguez said.…Continue Reading
Remes’ victim had been quoted as saying, “I just hope that I get to tell the court what I experienced, and how it hurt.” With Remes’ trial for attempted murder now underway, she finally has her chance and was in court to testify against him.
Patricia Lefranc, 48, told court members that she was, ‘determined to look him in the eye and show the jury what he has done to me’.
According to court documents, on December 1, 2009, Remes was waiting for Lefranc as she exited an elevator in the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean. Lefranc told the court that Remes – with whom she had terminated an affair – sprayed sulphuric acid all over her head and upper body. Remes was married with children at the time.
After the attack, Lefranc said she was convinced that she would die, but neighbors heard her screams and managed to get her to a nearby hospital.…Continue Reading
Daniel Happ was arrested early Wednesday morning after police responded to the woman’s home on a disturbance call. When police arrived on scene, they found a 23-year-old woman unconscious and suffering from numerous blows to the head. Also in the home, the woman’s 8-year-old daughter, who police believe had been raped by Happ. Police say the sh*thead threatened to bludgeon the child with the same hammer he beat the snot out of her mamma with as he defiled her.
In addition to the two human victims, police also found a dog in the home to be suffering from several stab wounds.
The woman was transported to the hospital for treatment, but because of her condition, she was unable to assist police with their investigation. The child was interviewed by professionals at the Kane County Child Advocacy Center and taken someplace safe, and the dog is in the care of a local veterinarian.…Continue Reading
Spartanburg, SC - Divorce is a difficult pill to swallow, and some stubborn folks just won’t swallow that pill.
Meet the beguiling 38-year-old Stacy Splawn. Knowing that Prince Charming must be awaiting her beauty and charm to be released from the binds of marriage, she asked her husband for a divorce.
Being a good Christian, Douglas Splawn told her that their vows were “till death do we part” and that he declined to take part in the sin of marriage dissolution. He thought her response of “That’ll be sooner than you think” was a little curious, but the dedicated fellow continued with his husbandly duties (gag!).
He happened upon a syringe and vial of medication which was labeled succinylcholine in Stacy’s eyeglass case on the nightstand. The warning label about surgical use, death and paralysis on the vial prompted him to hide the medication and fill the syringe with water. Later, while lying in bed and discussing their marital issues, Douglas asked her about the medication. He told her that he had filled the syringe with the paralyzing agent and thrown the bottle away.…Continue Reading
Snohomish, WA – Snohomish County Prosecutor Cindy Larsen wants to try the 15-year-old girl accused of stabbing two school mates last year as an adult, and it’s no wonder why. The girl has developed a particularly wicked “bucket list” while behind bars – a bucket list that includes attacking the victims again and torturing toddlers. It’s undoubtedly a ploy for attention but, hey, I’m game.
The attack occurred Oct. 24th in a girl’s restroom at Snohomish High School. The victims, freshmen April Lutz and Bekah Staudacher, were seen on surveillance video entering together. Soon after, the hooded attacker enters behind them. Commotion is heard and a crowd gathers outside. Eventually, paramedics cart out a victim on a stretcher. Staudacher received a large slice to the arm and was stabbed in the back, while Lutz received 13 stab wounds described as “life-threatening.” Both have recovered.
But the situation with the attacker started long before this incident. In April of last year, a couple of kids told school officials that the girl had become obsessed with them and threatened to kill one of their boyfriends.…Continue Reading
William Carr Oller Jr., 50, was apparently belting out a country tune at his home Thursday, when Oller Sr. essentially told him to shut the f*ck up. When the younger Oller failed to do so, the elder Oller reportedly exited the man’s home, declaring, “I’m going to shut you up.”
Police say Oller Sr. then retrieved a .22 caliber from his pickup and pointed it at his son, who had followed him outside to speak with him. With that, Oller Jr. beat feet back into the trailer, locking the door behind him.
Believing his father had left the area, Oller Jr. opened the door and popped his head out. There was dad, on the porch, gun in hand.
Police say that triggered another fight – a fight that reportedly left the younger Oller with gunshot wounds to the head, chest, hand and shoulder.…Continue Reading
Azusa, CA – Fernando Porras, 43, is facing a charge of attempted murder after police say he tried to kill his wife by spiking her Rice Krispies with Goof Off – The ultimate stain remover for even the toughest messes!
Azusa police said the 51-year-old woman started chowin’ down Thursday morning and soon noticed her normally tasteless cereal now tasted and smelled a bit funky. And after ingesting a few bites, she became ill.
Paramedics were called after the woman’s 17-year-old daughter took a whiff of the offending cereal.
“She goes ‘something’s in it, something’s in it,’” says Fernanda. “So I went and picked it up and when I saw what was in the cup, I could smell it and I was like ‘oh my gosh, this is a chemical.’”
Porras accompanied his wife to the hospital, but raised investigators’ suspicions when he went outside to smoke a cigarette and vanished. He was arrested about two miles away and has since been ordered held on $1 million bail.
Police said family members allegedly heard Porras making incriminating statements.…Continue Reading
When police arrived at the couple’s trailer Saturday evening, they found Anna Hibbs bleeding from a gash on her forehead. She informed the responding officer that while she was holding her 2-year-old daughter, her husband shoved her to the ground and popped her in the head with the gun.
When she tried to get back on her feet, Harry reportedly pointed the gun at her and pulled the trigger. Fortunately, the gun jammed.
Harry was transported to the pokey and charged with attempted murder, reckless endangerment and assault. Bail has been set at $500,000.
Anna reportedly received five stitches to the forehead and made it back home in time to tend to her crops.…Continue Reading
Police were called to Strikers Family Sports Center Sunday evening and found the unidentified 28-year-old victim bleeding from a nasty gash on her forehead. The woman told police she and Stevenson had argued prior to the alleged beaning because she wouldn’t let him buy her a drink. When it was his turn to bowl, the jilted jerk reportedly picked up a 12-pound ball and tossed it at the woman’s head before walking out of the building.
Fortunately, the woman did not suffer a concussion and nothing was cracked or broken – the wound did require about 7 stitches, though.
Stevenson was picked up a short time later and booked into jail. He reportedly admitted to losing his temper and hitting the woman, but told police he regretted it. He was even kind enough to ask how she was doing.…Continue Reading
Brooklyn NY – I was going to call it a day and save this one for tomorrow, but I got some time to kill. A teenager is clinging to life today after a fellow student stabbed him multiple times in the head with a pair of scissors.
It happened yesterday in the Erasmus Hall High School gymnasium after 15-year-old Alfredo Allen (pictured) and 16-year-old Chevoy Nelson, an emotionally disturbed special ed student, got into an argument during a lunchtime game of basketball.
Nelson became increasingly angry at Allen and shoved him. Allen responded by slapping Nelson in the face. Infuriated, Nelson left the gymnasium and began running around asking people for a weapon.
“He goes running around, asking everyone for a weapon,” said a police source. “He goes into a classroom and asks a teacher for acid. She obviously says no, but then she get distracted he grabs a pair of scissors and runs back to the gym.”
That’s when Allen found out what I already knew… that the mentally challenged have the strength of ten men.…Continue Reading
Deputies responding to a 911 call about a critically injured man arrived at the victim’s home just before 11 p.m. and found the 33-year-old victim inside the residence with a severed right hand, numerous slash wounds to his torso and a deep laceration on his forehead. A blood covered sword was found in the man’s bedroom.
Police allege Banbury and the unidentified victim were in the trailer together when the victim fell asleep. Banbury reportedly exited the trailer as the victim slept, walked to his own trailer and, for whatever reason, retrieved the sword. When he returned, sh*t got bloody.
Banbury was taken into custody at the scene and is being held without bond. The victim was flown to Flagstaff Medical Center, where he is listed in stable condition.
The motive behind the alleged attack is still unknown.
First thought when I read the headline: “Damn!…Continue Reading
Oakland Park, FL — Allow me to introduce the lovely Dorothy Cooper. Cute, no? She’s been charged with attempted murder after police say she stabbed her neighbor with a steak knife when he refused to give her $2.
Cooper reportedly approached neighbor Robert Martin Sunday and asked him to give her a couple bucks. Her request was promptly denied. Cooper then demanded $5. Martin, again, refused. At that point, police say Cooper attacked Martin with a large steak knife, stabbing him in the back and chasing him outside. Once Martin fell to the ground, Cooper walked away, leaving him for dead.
Martin was transported to the hospital with a stab wound to the back and one to the ass. Though he was initially listed in critical condition, he was not listed as a patient Monday afternoon.
When questioned, Cooper first told police she was provoked after Martin asked her for sex *shudder* and struck her in the face when she refused his advances. She then made with the truth, admitting that she stabbed Martin because he refused to give her the money she wanted.…Continue Reading
Christopher Castillo, 38, was booked on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and tampering with evidence Monday after allegedly traveling from his home in San Jose to his mother’s home in Las Cruces with the intent of killing the woman.
Police responded to the woman’s home after receiving a 911 call from a neighbor. The neighbor reported seeing a man, later identified as Castillo, wearing a white dress, high heels, stockings and a wig and walking toward the woman’s home. A short time later, the neighbor heard screams and went to investigate. When she stepped into the victim’s home, she saw Castillo standing over the woman, baseball bat in hand.
The neighbor reportedly yelled out, causing Castillo to flee. The neighbor then helped the victim to her feet and out of the house.
Police apprehended Castillo a couple blocks away from the home. By that time, he had changed into a pair of khaki pants, a white shirt and tennis shoes.…Continue Reading
Toronto, Canada – We don’t have nearly the amount of stories out of Canada as I would like. But I aim on fixing that, starting with this story out of Toronto in which a man allegedly tossed his wife and two daughters off a fourth-floor balcony.
According to the reports I can find, 27-year-old Jerome Stephenson was in court on Sunday facing three charges of attempted murder after tossing his wife and two daughters, aged eight months and two years, over their apartment balcony. He then jumped over himself, but was restrained by other residents until police arrived.
Witnesses described a horrific scene: The toddler wearing white pajamas lying in the fetal position, inches from a concrete sidewalk. Her older sister was lying on the grass nearby in a crumpled heap while their mother was on the ground flush with the building.
Surprisingly, everyone survived. Stephenson’s wife suffered serious injuries while his two girls were being treated at the hospital for life-threatening injuries. On Sunday their condition was listed as fair and doctors expect both girls to survive.…Continue Reading
Los Altos, CA — In what prosecutors are describing as a “carefully plotted” attempt to kill her estranged husband, 50-year-old Laura Jean Wenke, dressed in coveralls, rubber boots and bubble wrap, approached the man from behind and proceeded to get stabby.
According to police, wacky Wenke showed up at the couple’s business, identified as Wenke Construction, at about 7:00 p.m. on September 15. I don’t know how she managed to sneak up on the man, but
squeak sneak she did. Police say she hit him once in the ribs with a stun gun and stabbed him multiple times in the neck and chest as he sat at his computer.
The man somehow survived the sneak attack and notified police – officers found him bleeding outside the business. He was taken to Stanford Hospital in critical condition and released a week later.
Wenke, for all of her “careful” planning, apparently failed to draw up an escape plan…she was apprehended inside the building, her bubble wrap outfit streaked with blood.
Why all the hatred?…Continue Reading
Orlando, FL – Late Friday night, John Luther, 31, and his fiancée had returned from dinner and drinks when he asked for money to go out, according to police. She reportedly claimed to be broke and went to bed. Bitch.
Police records state Luther responded by dousing the woman’s head with gasoline and igniting her pillow with a lighter. The record goes on to say that Luther then started to “put the fire out with his hands” and “left the residence … to go out drinking.” The fiancée reportely went to the living room and fell asleep with her dog. I am guessing because her pillow was all burned and everything…
According to the arrest report, approximately 1 to 1 1/2 hours later Luther returned to the residence and – in an intoxicated state – woke his fiancée to advise her that the house was full of smoke.
Police arriving at the couple’s home noted “extensive structural (fire) damage” to a corner of the house and the woman smelling of gasoline.…Continue Reading
Anaheim, CA — The pathetic lookin’ sack of crap to the left is 24-year-old Joshua Robey – he’s accused of trying to kill his 2-month-old son by repeatedly shaking and punching him and swinging him around by the neck in a “noose-like” blanket.
Robey’s girlfriend apparently suspected him of cheating on her, so she set up a hidden camera in her home to record him while he was alone in the home, caring for the infant. And I can’t even begin to imagine the horror, fear, anger and revulsion she felt when she viewed the recording the next morning.
According to prosecutors, Robey is seen wrapping a blanket around the infant’s neck and picking him up by lifting both ends of the blanket like a noose. He is then seen swinging the child, by his neck, for more than a minute. He was just gettin’ started…
Police said Robey laid the child down and proceeded to punch him in the chest several times with a closed fist. He then slapped the child numerous times, grabbed him by the throat and began to violently shake him.…Continue Reading
