PLATTE COUNTY, MO - Police have arrested a man after the body of 35-year-old Tangela Fisher was found stuffed inside a homemade wooden box.
The box, and its gruesome contents, were found Friday morning in a dry creek bed off East Dye Store Road. It hasn’t been reported how detectives eventually identified 51-year-old Martin Lee Williams as a possible suspect, but when he was interviewed he admitted to accidentally killing Fisher while the two did drugs inside his home.
According to Williams, he prepared a syringe containing a controlled substance for both of them to use, then injected it into Fisher’s arm. When Fisher became unresponsive, Williams decided not to call for help and let her die of a drug overdose.
Now the proud owner of a dead woman, Williams decided it would be in his best interest to dispose of the body. So, using a bit of ingenuity and some tools, Williams used some scrap wood and a ping-pong table to craft Fisher a coffin. Once completed, Williams placed Fisher in the box and then dumped it where it was later discovered.…Continue Reading
CHARLOTTE, NC - A Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer has been charged with manslaughter within a few hours of shooting and killing an an unarmed man.
There are still some unanswered questions regarding this incident and what we do know is that Jonathan Ferrell got into a single-car accident in a wooded area early Saturday morning. The wreck was so bad that Ferrell had to crawl through the back window of the vehicle to get out.
Ferrell wandered a half mile before emerging from the wooded area into a nearby neighborhood. He went to a home and began banging “violently” on the front door. The woman inside opened the door, thinking it was her husband returning home from work. When she saw a large black man standing on her front porch, she shut the door and called 911.
What happened when police arrived on the scene is where some of the details are lacking. Camera footage taken from responding officer’s patrol car show an unarmed Ferrell running towards the officers while lifting up his shirt.…Continue Reading
LINN COUNTY, OR – A woman wanted for a DUI related death in 1997 was found in Canada after she bragged about getting away with murder inside a bar.
Police said in 1997, a then 38-year-old Jean Keating was driving drunk when she sideswiped a car driven by 65-year-old Jewel Anderson, causing her cross the center median and collide with another vehicle. Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene. Keating, as is usually the case with drunks, was not hurt.
Keating was charged with manslaughter, DUII, reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person. But while awaiting trial in March 1998, Keating’s attorney informed authorities he was concerned his client had “flown the coop.”. The Linn County Circuit Court issued a bench warrant for Keating’s arrest and she hasn’t been heard from since. Well, until now.
In early 2013 a police officer in Manitoba, Canada had followed up on a tip about a woman telling people in a bar how she had gotten away with the deadly crash in the United States.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – A fight at a downtown Los Angeles strip club ended with two men losing some legs after they were pinned between two cars.
Police are investigating a fight that broke out between 40-year-old Terrence Conrad Meeks and two other men inside Sam’s Hofbrau at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
The fight spilled out into the club’s parking lot where, according to police, Meeks got behind the wheel of his white BMW and rammed his vehicle into the two men, pinning them both against their Mini Cooper.
Meeks continued accelerating, pushing the Mini Cooper into the side of the building. An act that police say was no accident. “He rammed his vehicle into them with malicious intent,” Lt. Lee McMillion said.
Both victims – ages 24 and 57 – were taken to the hospital, where one had both of his legs amputated above the knee, and the other had his right leg amputated above the knee. They are both listed in critical but stable condition. Luckily, they will live to enjoy future lap dances.…Continue Reading
Dallas, TX – Back in 2011 we reported on Eric Crutchfield, the drunk man who ran over and killed Kasey McKenzie in a strip club parking lot with his “monster truck.” The other day, a jury ruled that the strip club bears 70 percent of the blame and awarded the McKenzie’s family $10.5 million.
For those of you unaware of the original story, 23-year-old Kasey McKenzie was walking in the parking lot of the Spearmint Rhino when she stepped in front of 27-year-old Eric Crutchfield’s dumbass truck. The truck in question was an F-250 that had been lifted so high, Crutchfield must be hung like a Ken doll. Crutchfield didn’t see McKenzie and ended up killing her after running her over with his front and rear tire.
According to reports, patrons had to chase down Crutchfield, who had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit, who wasn’t even aware he had just flattened a human being with his rolling cock extension. Crutchfield would later be found guilty of manslaughter and is currently serving a nine-year prison sentence.…Continue Reading
PHILADELPHIA, MS.- Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says Duane John, 34, has been charged with six felony counts of DUI manslaughter after a crash this weekend that killed an adult and his five children.

OCALA, FL – A teenager has been charged with manslaughter after he he killed his friend with a sucker punch to the face.
According to reports, 19-year-old Matthew Gunter was in a Walmart when he received a call from someone who is probably feeling like shit right now. The person called to inform Gunter that his friend, 23-year-old Travis Henshaw, was sleeping with his girlfriend.
Angry, Gunter left the store and drove to a home where Henshaw was staying. Witnesses say Gunter confronted Henshaw by delivering a sucker punch to Hensaw’s face. As a result, Henshaw’s brain ping-ponged around in his skull after his head head hit the side of a door and then a concrete floor.
While Henshaw was on the ground, Gunter stood over him and asked why he slept with his “old lady.” After Gunter fled the scene, witnesses say Henshaw began suffering a seizure. He was rushed to the hospital suffering serious brain injuries and placed on life support. On Thursday morning he was pronounced dead.…Continue Reading
Eureka, CA - Maggie Wortman, 27, was sentenced to six years in prison for the death of her 6-week-old son, who died from ingesting meth from her breast milk.
When paramedics arrived at Wortman’s residence on November 21, 2010, Michael Acosta III was found in full rigor mortis. An autopsy report would later reveal the infant died of methamphetamine toxicity. Officials would claim the baby had ingested the meth through Wortman’s breast milk.
Court documents state Wortman tested positive for methamphetamine while six months pregnant and even admitted that, even though she was breastfeeding, she smoked meth “a couple of times a week” for three weeks before the infant’s death. Wortman’s then 19-month-old daughter would also test positive for meth and subsequently be taken into the custody of child protective services.
Wortman would eventually plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter but only because she thought she would get out of doing any time behind bars. But because she was already on felony probation for running a drug house at the time of her son’s death, she was ineligible for the probation she thought she would receive for admitting guilt.…Continue Reading
BALTIMORE, MD – A 13-year-old girl was found shot to death in an alley, buried under a pile of trash, and now two of her young friends have been charged with killing her.
Police say on Saturday night, 13-year-old Monae Turnage was inside a home with two boys, ages 12 and 13, playing with a .22 caliber rifle. The gun fired and Monae was killed by a shot to her chest.
Police say the two boys panicked and dragged Monae into a nearby alley then hid her body under some bags of trash. Afterwards, one of the boys called Monae’s mother to tell her that she was on her way home. When he called a second time to see if she had gotten there, Monae’s mother became suspicious.
When she still had not arrived home by 1 a.m. Sunday, her family called police and started searching for her. Monae’s brother would eventually see her leg sticking out from trash in an alley directly behind the house she had been visiting that night.…Continue Reading
Last Thursday night, 44-year-old Lisa Stilkey and her husband, 40-year-old Alan Stilkey, got into a heated argument. During part of this argument, Lisa was on the phone her son who said he heard Alan yelling, “When you get off the phone, I’m going to kill you.”
A short time after this phone call, Lisa threw a pillow out a second-story window and then followed behind it. It was not a smooth landing. She suffered severe injuries from the fall and was pronounced dead at the hospital the next day.
Alan, an arm wrestling champion, has been charged with manslaughter, assault and battery and threat to commit a crime. He has pleaded not guilty.
Kinston, NC - According to police, Krystal Jones, 24, was preoccupied by her huffing when she drove her car into a building in Kinston, North Carolina.
The building – which had reportedly been a pet store – was being renovated to become a church. More ‘renovation’ is now needed, as Jones squarely smashed it all to hell.
Jones was jailed on a $1,000 bond and, at last report, was still in custody. Police charged her with careless and reckless driving, driving left of the center line and inhaling toxic vapors.
The ‘driving left of the center line’ thing may seem like grasping. It turns out that some grasping was necessary as, North Carolina authorities say, she can not be charged with DWI because the physiological artifacts of huffing dissipate too quickly for impairment to be established post-incident.
It is unfortunate that – apparently – driving through a freakin’ building isn’t a crime…
That said, the fact of the matter is that this incident turned out comparatively well. This case comes on the heals of a couple of more tragic cases.…Continue Reading
Anchorage, Alaska – The man accused of injecting a 14-year-old girl with heroin is in even more trouble after the teen died the other day, having spent almost a week on life support.
Police say 26-year-old Sean Warner, a navy veteran who served in the Afghanistan war as a medic, was with two other men when they picked up 14-year-old Jena Dolstad (Facebook) and took her back to Warner’s home to hang out. There the group used a variety of drugs, including heroin. Dolstad indicated she wanted to try the drug, but didn’t want to inject it herself.
According to the court documents, that’s when Warner tried to inject her himself. First attempts were unsuccessful as he was unable to find a vein. So he had Dolstad lie on his bed and tied a belt around her arm before injecting her with 25 to 30 units of heroin.
She was reportedly left alone in the room and was discovered the following morning face down in her own vomit.…Continue Reading
CHARLESTON, S.C. – A man’s brother died after eating the cocaine stashed in his ass and now police plan on charging him with manslaughter.
Back in November, 23-year-old Deangelo Rashard Mitchell and his brother, 20-year-old Wayne Joshua Mitchell were arrested for trafficking.
Video in the car captured Deangelo begging his younger brother to fish the cocaine out of his ass and eat it.
“One of us gotta do it, you the only one that don’t have any strikes. …You my little brother… I’m gonna get life,” Deangelo pleads.
Wayne does as he is instructed, and within the hour he was having trouble breathing and bleeding from the mouth. He died soon afterward.
Deangelo was initially charged with trafficking drugs and has since bonded out of jail. But with the video evidence and a toxicology report that definitively proves Wayne died from consuming the cocaine, police plan on charging Deangelo with involuntary manslaughter.
I love my brother to death, but if it ever came down to him going to prison, or me eating drugs out of his ass, I’d be visiting him in prison every chance I could.…Continue Reading
Kasia Rivera, 34, was arrested Friday on manslaughter charges and unauthorized practice of medicine in the death of 22-year-old Justin Street.
Street, presumably on a quest for the perfect penis, went to Rivera’s home on May 5, where she allegedly injected his babymaker with silicone…he died the next day. The medical examiner listed the cause of death as silicone embolism as a result of the injection and the death was ruled a homicide.
After a thorough investigation, Rivera was taken into custody and ordered held on $75,000 bail. Police are continuing their investigation and are asking other potential victims to please step forward.
While discussing this story with a friend, I was told of a man who claimed to have injected silicone into his dick on a pretty regular basis. And by regular basis, I mean about six years. I was also told that there was video of this man on the ‘net.…Continue Reading
Wangaratta, Australia – Two years ago, Kerry Anne McNiven, 44, got drunk at a party and passed out. Gary Stewart, who was reported to have been a friend of McNiven for 10 years, took unfortunate advantage of the situation and touched her breasts ‘inappropriately.’ According to testimony, this act was witnessed by McNiven’s partner and three other people. McNiven’s partner, Ray Fleming, told the other three not to tell her because he knew she would be ‘upset.‘ A week later, the same crew was partying again. It was then that one of the three witnesses to the groping told McNiven about what Stewart had done.
Did she get upset? You decide…
According to court records, after mother-of-three McNiven was told of Stewart’s actions, she filled a container with a gasoline-oil mixture and placed it inside a shopping bag she was carrying. She then invited Stewart, pictured on the right, to walk to a nearby river. When they reached the river, they sat down at a boat ramp and continued to talk and drink.…Continue Reading
OCOEE, Fla. – At the same time Jose Baez was convincing a Florida jury that Casey Anthony did not murder her child, another defense attorney was in the same building trying to convince a jury that Billy Bob Thorton’s estranged daughter was not responsible for the death of her best friend’s 1-year-old daughter.
Back in October 2008, 32-year-old Amanda Brumfield was charged with murder after her best friend’s baby, Olivia Madison Garcia, died in her care. Garcia died after suffering a 3.5-inch fracture of her skull and bleeding on the brain.
Brumfield would tell investigators that the injury was caused by the girl falling out of her crib, but that after the fall the child seemed fine and even ate a banana. She explained the little girl’s lack of distress was the reason why she did not call for help until nearly two hours after the alleged fall, even sending her mother a text saying “Olivia can climb out of her playpen but has learned … she has perfected the landing.”
During the trial, the prosecution would argue there was no way Garcia would have suffered such a massive head injury from the short fall distance Brumfield described, and that it had to come from some other method.…Continue Reading
Bartlesville, OK – Some of you may remember the lovely lady to the left, she was charged with manslaughter in November of last year after her 10-day-old baby was found dead inside a running washing machine. Well, she’s been sentenced.
We covered the story when it broke, but for the click impaired, a quickie rundown on the case….
On Thursday, November, 4th, Lyndsey Fiddler called 911 to report that the infant, Maggie May Trammel, was dead. At the time, Fiddler blamed the child’s death on a relative – the same relative that was heard in the background of the 911 call saying, “No, I didn’t kill your baby. You did.”
It was that relative, Fiddler’s aunt, that found Maggie May in the machine. The woman told detectives she watched as Fiddler left the room with the girl to feed her. Fiddler returned a short time later without the baby. When the woman went to look for the baby, she heard loud noises coming from the laundry room and went to investigate.…Continue Reading
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police say two teens are being charged with involuntary manslaughter after a prank they pulled resulted in a fatal car crash.
Derek W. Greenlee, 18, and Seth R. Stonerock, 19, are accused of concealing a stop sign with several layers of plastic wrap and petroleum jelly, rendering it invisible to motorists.
Afterwards, they both went on Facebook and posted about how funny their prank was until they got exactly what they wanted, and two elderly women breezed through the stop sign and into the path of an SUV pulling a boat.
Mary Spangler, 85, died in the crash while her 80-year-old sister, Jeanne Shea, remains in critical condition at the hospital where one of her legs was amputated above the knee.
Although the boys tried to hide what they had done by deleting their Facebook posts, others had already seen them and contacted police after news of the crash began to spread.
Neither of the high school graduates have a criminal record and Greenlee was considered the best high-school golfer in the county, but if convicted they’re looking at a possible five year prison sentence.…Continue Reading
Joseph Segura died of a Suboxone overdose while in state prison last year. The drug, normally given to people trying to get off heroin, was smuggled into the prison inside watercolor paintings supposedly made by his kids.
At face value, the artwork looked like any other crappy artwork children make, accompanied with notes about missing and loving daddy. But the paint used to create the yellow sun and duck was spiked.
Police say his girlfriend, 47-year-old Shari Stone, crushed up Suboxone and mixed it into the paint so that when Segura got the artwork, he would simply lick the paintings and catch one hell of a buzz.
Not any more of course, as he’s dead and his girlfriend is looking at a charge of involuntary manslaughter, bringing contraband onto prison grounds, conspiracy to commit bringing contraband onto prison grounds and distribution of a controlled substance.…Continue Reading
