HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. – Looking for someone to hate this Friday? Then meet 25-year-old Lindsey Lowe. She has admitted to giving birth to twins in a toilet, then suffocating them just minutes after they were born.
According to the affidavit, Lowe gave birth to her first son sometime between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday night while sitting on a toilet in her parent’s home. Lowe’s parents were unaware that their daughter was even pregnant and Lowe was hell-bent on keeping it that way.
So when the baby fell in the toilet and started crying, she told detectives that she covered the infants mouth and nose with her hand until he stopped breathing. She said that took about two minutes and she never checked the sex of her child.
She then gave birth to her second son, who also fell in the toilet, and proceeded to suffocate him in the same manner she did her other son, telling detectives he died quicker than his older brother.
Lowe took their bodies and hid them in a laundry basket in her bedroom, covering them with a blanket.…Continue Reading
AUGUSTA, Maine – Police say a man currently in jail for his role in a Massachusetts triple homicide previously served time in prison after an assault in which he licked a teenager’s blood and claimed to be a vampire — and his facial tatts, piercings and body modifications on display in his mugshot are making him quite the online sensation.
Caius Veiovis, 31, along with Adam Lee Hall, 34, and David Chalue, 44, has been charged with three counts of murder, kidnapping and witness intimidation after the men allegedly murdered then disposed of the bodies of 44-year-old David Glasser, 58-year-old Edward Frampton, and 47-year-old Robert Chadwell.
The murders were allegedly an attempt to keep Glasser from testifying against Hall, a ranking member of the local Hells Angels, in his upcoming trial for kidnapping, assault and battery and witness intimidation. Not surprisingly, Veiovis is no stranger to the justice system.Continue Reading
Douglasville, GA — You guys remember the story we posted last month about that 15-year-old who used a samurai sword to kill his great-grandmother? Well he was in court the other day where more details were released, including the fact that the fight started when she would not let him get on the computer.
For those of you too lazy to click the above link, Gevin Prince lost his shit during an argument with Mary Gibbs, his 77-year-old great-grandmother, and stabbed her to death with a kitchen knife and a samurai sword.
When police arrived at the home the teen shared with his grandmother and great-grandmother, they found Prince standing outside with Gibbs laying dead on the lawn. He was wielding the sword in one hand and using a BB gun in the other to shoot at the cops, pausing only to take care of some unfinished business with his great-grandmother.
“Eventually he took the sword and walked over to the great-grandmother, who was already deceased in the front yard, took the sword and said something I couldn’t hear, and raised the sword above his head and thrust into her chest area,” said Lt.…Continue Reading
PALOS PARK, Ill.— Police have arrested a 17-year-old and charged him with the gruesome beating death of his parents.
I’ve been keeping an eye on the murders of 44-year-old John Granat and his 42-year-old wife Maria, as police were informing neighbors that they weren’t in any danger while also mentioning the couple had a teen son. I figured it was only a matter of time before he was charged.
Police received a call from 17-year-old John Granat on Sunday morning, informing them that when he woke up that morning he found the house in disarray and his parents dead.
When police arrived they would find the couple dead in their blood-splattered bedroom. Cook County medical examiner’s office determined that John Granat suffered blunt force trauma to his head and was beaten so severely that his kidney was lacerated. Maria Granat suffered blunt force injuries as well, but unlike her husband, she was stabbed repeatedly.
I would suspect the fact that there was no evidence of forced entry combined with Granat’s multiple, inconsistent stories of what he was doing on the night his parents were beat to death, had police zeroing in on the teen from the onset.…Continue Reading
PINE CITY, Minn. — Police have arrested 16-year-old David Doberstein and charged him with shooting his sleeping stepfather in the head with a revolver.
Police were called to Doberstein’s home early Wednesday morning after he woke up his mother and told her that he thought something was wrong with 41-year-old Mark McKeller, who was sitting in a chair bleeding from his head with his right eye drooping.
McKeller was conscious and talking, but had no clue what the hell was going on or why he was bleeding. Thinking the man may have had a stroke and hit his head, paramedics rushed him to the hospital where a CAT scan would find the reasons behind the man’s injuries. It was in the form of a bullet lodged behind McKeller’s right eye.
When police began asking Doberstein questions, he told them that it was an accident. He told them he was trying to sneak out of the house and the .22 caliber revolver he had taken to scare a dog had accidentally discharged as he was leaving, striking his stepdad in the head.…Continue Reading
LOUISVILLE, KY – A judge surprised everyone during the sentencing phase of a woman accused of killing her 8-month-old son by rejecting a plea deal the defense and prosecution had agreed upon.
First, here’s a little background. Back in 2010, police arrested Geneva Walters, accusing her being responsible for the drowning death of her son, Michael Cowherd. Police say Walters had given the boy adult-strength Tylenol before leaving him in the bathtub while she prepared formula, stopping short of placing a cinder block on the boy’s chest to keep him occupied.
She would be initially be charged with wanton endangerment and manslaughter, but earlier this year, Walters plead guilty to reckless homicide in a pretty sweet plea deal.
Both her defense and the prosecution had reached a plea agreement that would have Walters serving 60 days in jail and being placed on probation for five years. Not too bad for being an idiot who killed their kid.
Typically, judges will rule in favor of plea agreements, but Judge Stevens surprised everyone Thursday during sentencing when he bitch-slapped that plea deal into oblivion and then sentenced Walters to the maximum sentence of five years behind bars.…Continue Reading
Homewood, Ill — The man accused of stabbing his 3-year-old son to death after raping the boy’s mother and tossing her out a window has been ordered held without bond.
Police say that last Friday, 27-year-old Gregory Sandifer raped his girlfriend, 25-year-old Margaret Jefferson, at knifepoint. Afterwards, he stabbed her multiples times in the chest, neck and arms. Sandifer then began beating her, then hit her with her a television before pushing her out a second-floor window.
Still alive, Jefferson began screaming for help.
“There wasn’t any part of her body that wasn’t covered with blood. She was practically naked,” neighbor Kathy Perez told the Tribune. “She kept asking (police) to go get (her) baby. ‘He’s gonna kill my baby.’”
Still inside the apartment, Sandifer allegedly grabbed a carving knife and murdered his 3-year-old son, Jaivon Sandifer, by stabbing him 10 times in the torso, neck and arms as he lay in his bed. One of these wounds was a 14-centimeter stab wound on the back of the boy’s neck.
Witnesses then watched as Sandifer jumped from the second floor porch and landed in the yard of the house next door.…Continue Reading
LAS VEGAS , NV – Police say 19-year-old Javier Righetti admitted to stalking 15-year-old Alyssa Otremba, raping her, then stabbing her over 40 times before setting her body on fire.
Otremba was last heard from on Friday evening while walking home from a friend’s house. She texted her mother, informing her she would be home in 30 minutes and that her phone was dying. When she did not return home, Otremba’s mother began searching the neighborhood for her before calling police.
The next day, Otremba’s charred body was found in a desert area near her home. Autopsy reports show she was stabbed more than 40 times in the face, neck, chest, stomach and thighs.
On Monday, police would get a call from 18-year-old Elizabeth Morales who told them she had some information regarding Otremba’s murder. She told police that on Friday night her boyfriend, 19-year-old Daniel Ortiz, received several phone calls from a very upset Righetti.Continue Reading
Flint, MI – The mother of 4-year-old Dominick Calhoun, the boy who was tortured to death over the course of four days, will spend the next 13 to 30 years in prison after she pleads guilty to second-degree murder.
I know a lot of you are familiar with this case, but for those of you who are not and don’t feel like reading our original article, let me ruin your morning a bit.
Last April, 4-year-old Dominick was sitting on a couch eating cereal when he accidentally wet his pants. His mother’s boyfriend, 24-year old Brandon Hayes, became enraged and began beating the boy. Over the course of four days Hayes would punch, kick, and burn Dominick. He would even stick his thumbs in the little boy’s eyes.
Dominick’s mother, Corrine Baker, would also become the recipient of some of Hayes’ abuse, but at no time did she ever alert anyone that Dominick was being severely beaten even though she had multiple chances to do so and her friends were urging her to call police.…Continue Reading
ASHEVILLE, NC — Police have a charged a North Carolina mother with murdering her two young daughters with a hatchet before trying to use it on herself.
Neighbors say that on Saturday they heard blood curdling screams coming from the home of Naiyana Patel. She and her husband have run the Ash Pantry Food Store for the last couple years and had recently moved into the home with their two daughters, 8-year-old Jiya, and four year old Piya.
Her husband, Lalji Patel, called 911 after returning home from work Saturday morning and finding his two daughters dead and his wife injured. Police say Naiyana used a hatchet to murder the two girls before using it to repeatedly strike herself in the head.
Naiyana was rushed to the hospital where she is recovering, despite her wishes to die, with a guard posted outside her door. She told police that she wasn’t responsible for murdering her kids, but rather a “ghost killed her children.”
Not surprisingly, it’s being reported that Naiyana has some mental issues.…Continue Reading
Sonia Hermosillo, 31, was already in jail on attempted murder charges but prosecutors have now charged her with one felony count of murder and one felony count of assault on a child with force likely to produce great bodily injury resulting in death.
When we first reported on this horrific incident, a motive had not been given as to why Hermosillo would throw Noe Medina, Jr. off the parking deck, but now it is being reported that she could not live with some of his disabilities.
Noe was being treated for congenital muscular torticollis, a twisting of the neck to one side, and had to wear a specialized helmet to correct his plagiocephaly, also known as flat-head syndrome.
Police say that Hermosillo removed the boy’s helmet before tossing him off the parking structure, then went back inside the hospital to validate her parking and then left.…Continue Reading
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Police have arrested three men in connection to the brutal murder of a family found dead in their home on Tuesday.
Police were called to the home after concerned relatives asked them to check on their welfare. Once inside, police would find someone had murdered Lorenzo Graves, his wife Cheryl, and their 4-year-old daughter Ozzie.
Graves’ sister says he and his wife were found shot to death downstairs, while Ozzie was found dead upstairs on the side of her parent’s bed where it seems she had been hiding. She had been stabbed to death.
Chief Rodney Monroe said robbery was the motive. He called the crime barbaric. “(It’s) very hard,” Monroe said. “(It’s) senseless. There’s nothing that that 4-year-old child could’ve done (or) said to harm any of those individuals.”
Later that day, police would have 25-year-old Joseph Amous and 27-year-old Lorenzo White in their custody. Detectives honed in on Amous after learning he had been charged with breaking into the family’s apartment in June. Charges against Amous were dismissed the next month when Graves refused to give police a written statement.…Continue Reading
ST. MARTINS, Missouri – One trial I am looking forward to is the trial of Alyssa Bustamante, the teen accused of killing her neighbor, 9-year-old Elizabeth Olten. I had hoped it would start as scheduled, but now it looks like it won’t start until the beginning of next year.
Olten vanished while walking home from a friend’s house back in 2009. The day after she disappeared, the older sister of the friend Olten was visiting, a then 15-year-old Bustamante, led police to Olten’s dead body.
The mentally disturbed teen, with a history of cutting and a suicide attempt at 13, admitted to police that she killed the girl. After strangling, stabbing and cutting the girl’s throat, she buried her in a grave behind her house that she had dug a week prior. She told police she killed the girl because she wanted to know what it felt like.
Her attorney wanted her tried as a juvenile and kept in a juvenile facility where she would receive better treatment and increase her chances of rehabilitation.…Continue Reading
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — The Oklahoma County Jail has a young guest today after police arrested a 13-year-old boy and charged him with the murder of his 9-month-old sister.
Court documents indicated that on August 16, the girl was treated at Children’s Hospital for a severe brain injury, a skull fracture and blood clots that were compressing her brain. The hospital staff did not believe the parent’s story of the baby having been involved in an accidental fall and contacted police.
Investigators would learn that the baby’s older brother, Crystian Rivera, would regularly babysit the girl while their parents worked. On this particular occasion, Rivera told police that his sister would not stop crying while he played video games. He told them he became angry when his character in the video game he was playing was killed, so he picked up the girl and shook her. He says he then went back to playing video games while his sister continued to cry and eventually fall asleep.
Rivera first was taken to juvenile detention on a child abuse complaint but was booked on a murder complaint after the baby died a few days later.…Continue Reading
Dallas, TX – A Dallas man has been charged with abducting his two young sons and then drowning them in a creek.
Police say the children’s mother was walking 5-year-old Naim to school for his first day, along with his 3-year-old brother, Elijah, when their father, 32-year-old Naim Muhammad, drove up and forced all of them into his car while threatening them with a brick.
The couple have a history of domestic violence, but were separated. Relatives say they had recently been arguing over their children. The mother was able to jump out of the car when a constable drove up, but Muhammad jumped the curb and drove off.
Several hours later, authorities received a 911 call from a woman who said her son had drowned her grandchildren. Police would eventually find the two boys in the back of their father’s car parked in a parking lot. Muhammad had drowned both of them in a muddy creek.
“I think everyone’s hurt in this case,” said Deputy Chief Craig Miller. “I think officers that open up the trunk of a vehicle, the back hatch of a vehicle, and see a deceased three-year-old and a five-year-old, I think each one of us think about our own children, the vulnerableness of life.”
Muhammad was found by a SWAT team in a nearby creek and taken into custody. After his arrest, Muhammad told reporters, “I got something to say.…Continue Reading
BUNKER HILL, Ind. — Police have charged a man with murder after they say he stabbed a 76-year-old Boy Scout leader in the neck during a hiking trip in Indiana.
Arthur L. Anderson was on a 5-mile hike with another adult and two scouts, ages 11 and 12, when they stopped to identify a tree on the Nickel Plate Trail in Bunker Hill.
That’s when police say 22-year-old Shane Golitko walked up behind Anderson and stabbed him the neck before fleeing the scene. Despite the attempts of responding medics and a nearby neighbor to save his life, Anderson died at the scene.
A minute before police received the 911 call regarding Anderson, they got a 911 call from Golitko’s mother. She told police that her son had just beaten her up and was headed towards Nickel Plate Trail.
After stabbing Anderson, Golitko returned home to trash his mother’s house and stab the family’s boxer and a pit bull, killing the boxer. Golitko then drove off and was later arrested after leading police on an 8-mile chase.…Continue Reading
PAHRUMP, NV – A man in Nevada is sitting in jail on murder charges and his daughter’s boyfriend learned a crappy lesson regarding good deeds and dating a chick whose family has some severe anger issues.
Police say 21-year-old Christopher Mundy was at the home of his girlfriend early Thursday morning, helping her move her belongings out. Mundy’s girlfriend had been arrested after getting into a fight with her sister and she had asked Mundy to go to her parent’s home and retrieve some of her belongings.
Before Mundy went to the home with his roommate’s 14-year-old brother early Thursday morning, he was supposedly threatened by his girlfriend’s mother several times on his Facebook profile. If anyone tracks those down, I’d love to know what was said.
Once there, his girlfriend’s parents told Mundy to get off their property. Mundy refused and chose to sit in his car parked in their driveway.
That’s when police say the girl’s father, 46-year-old Daniel Robbins, fired a round into the vehicle before he walked up to the car window, put a gun to Mundy’s head and shot him.…Continue Reading
MEMPHIS, Ar - A surprise hearing is scheduled for today, one in which many think some or all of the West Memphis Three will be released. I’m not going into all the details surrounding this case as if you are reading this site on a regular basis, you are probably fully-versed on it and have already formed your opinions.
For those of you who do not know who the West Memphis Three are, they are three individuals currently sitting in prison for almost two decades, one of them on death row, convicted of killing three 8-year-olds back in 1993. You can get all the details surrounding this case here, here, here and especially here (almost everything you ever wanted to know about the case is there presented with no bias whatsoever) , but here it is in a D’D nutshell.
Three eight-year-old boys, Stevie Branch, Michael Moore, and Christopher Byers, were found dead in a ditch shortly after being reported missing. They had been beaten, tortured and mutilated. Within a short amount of time police zeroed in on three of the town’s misfits, Jessie Misskelley, Jr., 17; Jason Baldwin, 16; and the supposed ringleader, Damien Echols, 18.…Continue Reading
KENNETT, Mo. – Police say they’ve found the remains of Breeann Rodriguez, the 3-year-old girl who went missing on August 6 while riding her bicycle in front of her house.
The remains were found Tuesday evening by an officer of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Patrol, who was searching by boat. Her body was found near the floodway ditches northeast of Hornersville, Missouri, about 8 to 10 miles from the girl’s home.
Shortly after the discovery, Breeann’s parents were notified.
“We appreciate all the help and support from the community in what has been a difficult time for all,” Dunklin County Sheriff Bob said. “We are saddened to confirm our fears, but glad we have been able to recover her for her parents.”
One of Breeann’s neighbors, 43-year-old Shawn Morgan was arrested earlier this week and charged with the little girl’s murder.
He told police that he grabbed Breeann and took her in his house after finding her standing on a ladder by the pool in his backyard. According to the affidavit, the father of three then used a white plastic trash bag to suffocate the girl, by holding it over her face and mouth.…Continue Reading
THIBODAUX, La. – Lots of details have come out over the last 24 hours regarding the man who decapitated his handicapped son the other day, and it just keeps getting worse.
One of the most chilling revelations is the fact that the boy’s head was left on the sidewalk so that his mother would see it when she got home.
Police say 30-year-old Jeremiah Lee Wright admitted to bludgeoning 7-year-old Jori Lirette to death before using a meat cleaver to decapitate him and dismember his body over the kitchen sink.
His motive? He says he was tired of taking care of the boy. Lirette suffered from cerebral palsy, was wheelchair bound and had to be fed through a feeding tube.
The boy’s mother, Jesslyn Lirette, had left that day to get her truck repaired and police say that’s when Jeremiah attacked his son.
“The cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma to the head,” Thibodaux Police Chief Scott Silverii said. “He had extensive bleeding to the right side of his brain, decapitation and dismemberment.”
Wright told police he intentionally left the boy’s severed head on the sidewalk so Jesslyn would see it when she returned home.…Continue Reading
