Raleigh, NC - Larry Whitfield was a 20-year-old man with no prior criminal record until this week. Now, due to a string of very bad decisions that led to his scaring 79-year-old Mary Parnell to death, he stands accused of first degree murder. I’ll tell you what: that’s one hell of a bad week.…Continue Reading
Port Richey, FL – Gentleman readers, you probably know the situation. You’re at home, trying to relax, and fuck if she doesn’t open her piehole. “WAH WAH WAH,” is the sound coming out of her fucking mouth, and you grit your teeth but she keeps it up, so you make the suggestion that maybe a little quiet is in order, but noooo, it’s more “WAH WAH WAH.” Let’s face it, after a point, it’s pretty damn hard to not just pop the cunt a good one, and in fact, 24-year-old Thomas Ludwig stepped up to the plate and did just that. Unfortunately, the recipient in this instance was one of Ludwig’s 2-month-old daughters, and now little Diella Ludwig is dead.…Continue Reading
Harrisonville, MO–The baby in the cooler was wrapped in a blue blanket…clothed in dark blue pants, a blue turtle neck, white socks, and a stocking cap. There was a stuffed teddy bear and a toy car alongside him in his makeshift coffin. Another cooler, sealed with silicone, held yet another tiny body, this one wrapped in a thin blanket. There is another cooler, buried somewhere in Oklahoma, that holds yet another dead baby. The babies were fathered by their own grandfather, Danial Rinehart.…Continue Reading

Brockton, MA – The handsome speciman you see above is Keith Luke, 22, who yesterday decided to cleanse his town of non-whites trying to destroy the white race. He began his day as many of us do, by placing a 9 mm gun, 200 rounds of ammunition, handcuffs, a hammer, a mouth gag, and a blindfold into his backpack. Can’t you just feel the love?…Continue Reading
San Jose - Some neighborhood residents have been experiencing kids constantly speeding around their neighborhood. On Monday, a 19-year-old (and going by the above picture, a species of goblin) resident was returning home when he accidentally ran into another neighbor’s fence. After doing so, he ran to his nearby home to get another car. 45-year-old Donna Fife, who had heard the initial crash, was outside attempting to get the license plate from the Civic Delgado was now driving. In return, Delgado ran over the woman as she stood in a yard. She died shortly after.…Continue Reading
O’Fallon, MO–Wow…Timothy looks really scared in that mug shot, doesn’t he? Looks like he might bust out bawling at any second. And for good reason. He killed his 5-month-old son, Ayden Harley.

Then the coroner called. Benjamin was the victim of a homicide.…Continue Reading

Milton-Freewater, OR–Loretta Polanco, 26, caught my attention earlier this month. She had been arrested for suspicion of murder in the death of her 2-year-old son, Lucas Isaac Polanco. At the time, there weren’t many details released…now that I have some details, I feel that her stupid face, her stupid tattoos, and her story of torture deserve a spot here on the Demon.…Continue Reading
Back in November, Christina Rubin’s father, Marc Rubin, yelled at her for some reason or another. This exchange was overheard by her boyfriend, 20-year-old Jeffery Leinheiser, who had the normal reaction of expressing a desire to kill Christina’s father. Christina thought that this wasn’t a bad idea and they developed a plan in which Leinheiser would shoot Marc Rubin with Christina’s .357 revolver the day after Thanksgiving. That part of the plan worked beautifully. …Continue Reading
Christopher Mitchell’s Myspace
Johnson City, TN–It happened at the Value Place Hotel. Little Jacob Mitchell, 2, somehow ended up with a fatal gunshot wound to the head. The only other person in the motel room at the time was 25-year-old Christopher Alan Mitchell…Jabob’s father.

Fresno, CA – Everyone failed ten-year-old Seth Ireland. Seth’s birth father abused him until he lost his rights. Seth’s mother, Rena Ireland, then got a new man, LeBaron Vaughn, 32.

And now, Seth Ireland is dead. On December 29, he was beaten, punched, kicked and stomped into a coma by LeBaron Vaughn. Yesterday, Seth died.…Continue Reading

Ja’ Shawn Powell
New Orleans, LA – Two and a half years ago, a woman gave birth to a little boy and named him Ja’ Shawn. Ja’ Shawn’s father didn’t seem to show much interest in being a daddy, as he never visited him. Of course, the courts expect fathers to help with the raising of their children at least financially, even when the extent of their parental involvement was a single sperm donation, and recently Danny Platt was ordered to pay child support. Apparently this caused Platt to cogitate on his hopes, dreams, desires, and the course of his future, and Friday, for the first time ever, the 22-year-old picked up Ja’ Shawn for a weekend visit. You might guess that Platt had decided it was time to step up to the plate, get to know his son, and be a good father to him, but guess what? You’d be completely wrong.…Continue Reading

Upper Darby, PA - Amber Jackson was a beautiful 20-year-old student at Delaware County Community College, and a part-time dispatcher for the Pennsylvania State Police. She had her whole life in front of her, until Freddie Cleveland stole it.…Continue Reading

Phoenix, AZ – This is a story too terrible for Christmas. But frankly, it’s too terrible for any day, and the family has no choice about dealing with it, so I think we should, too.
On Tuesday, December 23rd, with the excitement of Christmas in the air, two young cousins, Edwin Pellecier, aged 10, and Jesse Ramirez, aged 7, decided to walk to the park just a few doors from their home to play. They were found a short time later, bludgeoned about the head so badly that the EMT’s could not determine who they were or what had caused their injuries. …Continue Reading
