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.…
LAKE WORTH, FL – A Florida woman has been arrested after she allegedly attacked her mother on July 4 and removed both of her mother’s eyeballs with a knife.
No details have been released regarding what sparked the fight between 34-year-old Ferna Quesner and her mother, but police became involved after an anonymous caller informed them that Quesner was “beating her mother with a white pole.”
When deputies arrived at the home, they found Ferna “covered in blood” and her mother, 59-year-old Blonia Quesner, suffering from bleeding in her brain, a broken nose and two broken forearms. Oh yeah, her eyeballs were found “on the kitchen floor near a knife and a large pool of blood,” according to the probable cause affidavit.
“I don’t want to go to prison,” Ferna allegedly told the deputies while pointing toward her unconscious mother. “I was trying to kill the cat and she is the cat,” she added.
Quesner, who suffers from an unknown mental disability, allegedly beat her mother with a lamp pole and barbell weight before using a knife to carve out her eyes.…
WESTWOOD, MA — Police have arrested a woman who they say lost her freakin’ mind and attacked her 9-year-old daughter with a set of electric hedge clippers.
Investigators say 39-year-old Maureen Mullin attacked one of her two daughters inside their home around 5 a.m. Monday. The girl suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries because Mullin’s husband saw what was happening and “interceded in the struggle and prevented further harm from occurring to himself and the two children at the home,” police said.
Mullin was also injured during the attack and was taken to the hospital where she was arraigned in her hospital bed. She is due in court next week where she will face charges of mayhem, attempted murder and assault and battery on a child.
“They are just cute little girls that always seem to be smiling always seem to have good time,” one neighbor said. “What do you hope for in a situation like this? Other than maybe get some answers. But, even once you have the answers what is that really going to do?”
Police Chief Jeffrey Silva stated that violent crimes are not something you see in WWestwood, but pointed out that domestic violence is immune to geography.…
Gainesville, FL – A Gainesville teen has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed his 54-year-old father in the chest because he wanted to know what it felt like to kill a person.
Last Tuesday, 18-year-old Bamboo Flute Blanchard picked up a pocketknife his younger brother had been using and stated, “I wonder what it would be like to take a life.” Blanchard then rubbed the knife on his chest and said he didn’t think he could “handle it.”
I guess he wanted to test his resolve because afterwards he walked to a bedroom where his father was sleeping, followed by his younger brother, and stabbed the man in the chest with the pocketknife. 911 one was called and the man was taken to the hospital. He was released the next day and is expected to be fine.
Bamboo’s father would later tell investigators he initially thought his son had punched him in the chest before looking down and realized the crazy sumbitch ahd stabbed him.…
Danbury, CT – A 12-year-old student at Broadview Middle School is facing attempted murder charges after police say he brought a knife to school with the intent to kill some of his classmates.
At around 12:30 p.m. Monday, on the last day of the school year, a teacher asked to search the unidentified boy’s backpack. I’ve read a few articles, but some of the details surrounding the teacher’s decision to search this particular boy’s backpack are unclear.
One article says that the boy had threatened some classmates in gym class, while another states the teacher simply felt that something was “off” with the boy. Regardless, when the boy was asked to hand over his backpack, he ran inside a bathroom and threw the knife out a window. When police questioned him later, he told them where the knife was.
None of the articles I read detail anything else the boy told police, but they seem quite confident that the boy brought the knife with the sole intention of harming other classmates.…
PASADENA, MD – A teen in Maryland trying to get out of a simple marijuana charge has now been charged with attempted murder after he dragged a cop with his car.
Brian Hafer’s world turned to shit Monday night after police spotted marijuana in plain view in the vehicle the 18-year-old was driving. Police ordered Hafer and the other occupants in the vehicle to get out of the car, but Hafer refused.
When a detective reached inside to unlock the driver’s door and drag Hafer’s dumbass out of the vehicle, Hafer drove off with the detective’s arm trapped inside and dragged the guy approximately 60 feet before he fell off and into the road.
Other officers chased after Hafer who eventually stopped on Duvall Highway. Hafer’s passenger, 18-year-old Kevin Schofield, showed he had a bit more brains than his friends and was taken into custody without incident.
Hafer still refused to comply with officers and refused to get out of the vehicle. When he was finally pulled out, he became combative and punched and kicked the arresting officers.…
Police were called to a home Tuesday night where they found Barbara Herrara on the ground outside of the home. The 56-year-old was suffering from 12 stab wounds to the cheek, breasts, chest, abdomen, back and shoulders.
Witnesses at the scene told police they saw Herrara fighting with her daughter, Jennifer Alvarado, and that Alvarado was “yelling incoherent statements and stated that she was going to kill (Herrera) because she was evil and possessed by the devil.”
They said that Alvarado had walked off after the attack and pointed in the direction she was headed. Police would find Alvarado walking in the neighborhood nude and covered in blood. After being taken into custody, Alvarado claimed responsibility for her mother’s extra holes, stating she stabbed her because she was “evil and possessed by the devil.”
Alvarado was placed under arrest and has been charged with attempted murder.…
MIDWEST CITY, OK – Didn’t see a lot of news reporting on this, so thought I would. Police were forced to shoot and kill a man inside a Walmart after he took a toddler hostage and threatened to kill her.
The store was full of shoppers Monday afternoon when 37-year-old Sammie Wallace walked into the Walmart, took a toddler out of a shopping cart in front of her mother and began cradling her in his arms.
“The mother began asking him, what he was doing, it wasn’t making any sense what he was saying, he had a weapon in his hand, a knife up against the child, threatening the child’s life,” said Sid Porter, Assist. Chief of Police.
Witnesses said Wallace was acting erratic and speaking about the Illuminati and a satanic cult while holding the girl and holding a knife against her. “He was really erratic, telling the daughters mother to call his attorney,” said witness, Tony Humphrey.
“He’s basically saying things like, he wants to see his kids, he wants his kids too,” said Owens.…
Redding, CA – I can’t wait to hear the details regarding a disturbing incident out of California in which a man used a radial saw to cut off both of his hands after he stabbed his father multiple times.
Police were called to a home Monday afternoon to find 59-year-old Gregory Dunn lying in his driveway suffering from multiple stab wounds. Also in the driveway was his son, 27-year-old Jason Dunn. He was the person responsible for his father’s current condition, and was standing in the driveway with both of his hands cut off at the wrists.
Investigators say a verbal dispute led to Jason stabbing his father multiple times with a pair of scissors. Afterwards, Jason used a radial saw in the garage to sever both of his hands. Neighbors heard the commotion and a witness called 911, seeing as Jason no longer had the ability to do so. Both father and son were transported to the hospital in critical condition.
Neighbors said they didn’t know the Dunn family too well, but would have never expected anything like this happening. …
The poor guy just couldn’t do shit right Friday night when he finally mustered the courage to shoot his defenseless wife with a small caliber handgun. According to police, after shooting her once, the gun malfunctioned and allowed his wife, who thought her husband had hit her with the gun, to jump out of bed and run out of the house.
“She told a neighbor that he had hit her in the face with the gun, but actually he had shot her and she didn’t know it because she was sleeping,” Bradenton Police Chief Michael Radzilowski said. “It must have felt like a massive blow, like a punch, which is why she thought she had been hit with a blunt object.”
While his wife was next door, Pinel jumped into his car clad only in his underwear and sped away.…
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Because voices from the television told him to, Martin Montano stabbed his mother and a man, stuffed them in a car trunk then tossed his mother off a bridge.
According to Albuquerque police, Montano beat and stabbed his mother, Hope, and a man named Francisco Dominguez. The 26-year-old then loaded their bodies into the trunk of a car and drove them to to the Rio Grande Bridge. That’s where he pulled his mother out of the trunk and tossed her off the bridge.
A passerby was able to intervene before Montano had a chance to throw Dominguez over the bridge, and Montano took off running. Using information from witnesses at the scene, police were able to apprehend Montano shortly afterward.
Martin Montano was arrested and charged with an attempt to commit a violent felony, attempted murder, tampering with evidence, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle and aggravated burglary.
He told police that he was watching television when voices informed him that his mother and Dominguez where clones, and that his real family were living underground.…
TACOMA, WA — Police have charged 25-year-old Tyler Deutsch with attempted murder after allegedly putting his 6-week-old daughter in the freezer to stop her from crying.
The infant’s 22-year-old mother called 911 on Saturday to report she’d left the infant in the care of her boyfriend but that when she returned, she witnessed Deutsch taking their infant daughter out of the freezer in their home.
Although the baby was unresponsive and had a temperature of 84 degrees when she was rushed to Tacoma’s Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, doctors expect the infant to recover.
According to Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer, Deutsch told sheriff’s deputies he wasn’t trying to kill his daughter, but had put the infant in the freezer to stop the girl from crying. She had been chillin’ in the ice box for about an hour.
“It was only a six-week-old kid – can’t do much other than cry – and from what we understand he wanted the baby to stop crying so he put the baby in the freezer,” Troyer said. …
