HOUSTON, TX – Police have arrested 38-year-old Reinaldo Rivera after he stabbed his roommate to death for taking the last piece of fried chicken.
According to reports, Rivera and four other men were drinking and fixing fried chicken inside an apartment at the Lakeside Estates when 34-year-old Darwin Gonzalez took the the last piece of chicken, a drumstick.
Rivera was not at all happy about this, and the two men began arguing over Gonzalez’ faux pas. This argument spilled out into the apartment parking lot where the two traded blows.
The fight ended when Rivera stabbed Gonzalez once with a steak knife before fleeing the scene. Police would arrive on the scene to find Gonzalez dead in the parking lot.
Rivera was arrested after returning to the scene and admitting to police that he’d stabbed Gonzalez. He’s now behind bars facing a murder charge.
“There was a single drumstick in the pan,” according to HPD Homicide Detective Fil Waters. “You can’t script this stuff. It’s someone getting killed over a piece of chicken.…
COSTA MESA, CA – Benjamin Golden, a 32-year-old senior marketing manager for Taco Bell, is out of a job and facing criminal charges after he was captured on video assaulting an Uber driver.
Last Friday night, Edward Caban picked up Golden at around 8 p.m. and immediately knew he’d made a mistake. Golden was intoxicated and uncooperative, refusing to give Caban an address to go to.
Fed up with Golden, Caban pulled into a parking lot and told Golden he needed to get out of his car.
“You’re too drunk to give me directions, man. I’m kicking you out,” Caban told Golden as the drunkenly falls over in the back seat. “Get out of my car or I will call the police.”
After arguing for a bit, Golden opens the door and appears to be leaving, but then suddenly unleashes a flurry of punches to Caban’s face and head. When Golden stops yanking on Caban’s hair to pick up the hat that had fallen of his head, Caban uses the opportunity to retaliate with some pepper spray.…
Police were called to the Newport Landing apartments on Saturday after receiving a 911 call from one of Eh’s relatives. Once there, they spoke with Eh’s 12-year-old daughter who told them her other was trying to kill her and her two siblings.
She said that after Eh told her she was going to kill them and then herself, she put rat poison on a spoon and tried to force her 4-year-old son to drink it. When he kept his mouth shut, Eh allegedly slapped her son and forced the poison into his mouth.
She then tried to get her 12-year-old and 7-year-old to do the same, but when they saw what she was doing they booked it over to their grandmother’s nearby apartment and told her what was going on.
The boy was taken to the hospital in critical condition but has since stabilized. Her other two children are in the custody of Child Protective Services.…
MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – Prosecutors say they may file charges against a 58-year-old woman who allegedly hit her 61-year-old boyfriend over the head with a mounted sailfish, then poked him with the nose of the fish.
According to what the boyfriend told police, he and his girlfriend were drinking at around 2 a.m. when he decided to sketch a mounted sailfish. The two began arguing for some reason and she moved the fish before leaving the room.
When she returned, she found the fish had fallen and broke. Believing her boyfriend was responsible for the broken fish, she grabbed the head of the sailfish and began hitting him over the head with it. The man called 911 after she began poking him with the nose of the fish and cut his hand.
Responding police did not arrested the woman, citing her health issues, but the Muskegon County Prosecutor said they are reviewing the case and may file charges against the woman at a later time.
If you thought this was the first story ever featured on DD in which someone got into trouble for beating another person with a mounted animal, you would be mistaken.…
OMAHA, NE – Jacqueline Eide is facing trespassing charges after she broke into the Henry Doorly Zoo to pet a tiger, and got a mangled hand for her efforts.
In the early morning after Halloween night, an intoxicated Eide got inside the zoo and made her way to the cage of Mai, an 18-year-old Malayan tiger at the zoo’s African Grasslands exhibit.
Once she placed her hand inside the cage, Mai latched onto her hand “causing severe trauma to her hand,” police said in a statement.
After freeing herself, a friend drove Eide to the hospital where police say the 33-year-old was aggressive towards staff and showed signs of intoxication by alcohol or drugs.
Eide was still in the hospital on Sunday to treat injuries to her left hand that are so bad, she might lose parts of her fingers. But that’s not the end of her worries. Police have also charged her with criminal trespass.
Not that Eide’s a stranger to police or the court system, seeing as she’s previously been convicted of drunken driving, shoplifting, graffiti and other crimes.…
DENVER, CO – Police in Colorado have arrested 25-year-old Kanei Love after she was accused of fatally kicking a small dog during a domestic violence incident.
According to reports, police responded to a residence earlier this month and found Love holding the dead body of a small dog. She explained to them that she had kicked the dog while arguing with her boyfriend.
Witnesses told police that during the argument, Love kicked the dog and sent it three to four feet into the air. It must have been one hell of a kick, or one small dog, as the dog was dead by time it hit the ground, according to the affidavit.
Afterwards, Love told the responding police, “I don’t give a shit about the dog.”
Obviously not, but I bet she does give a shit about the consequences of kicking it to death. Love was arrested and charged with cruelty to animals. She was released after posting $2000 bond and is expected back in court on Nov 2.
Her boyfriend, 22-year-old Melvin Lewis, was also arrested and charged with city assault after he allegedly punched Love three to four times in the face during the altercation.…
MOUNT HEALTHY, OH – Police have arrested 35-year-old James Phillips after they say he killed his 3-month-old baby by slamming her into the floor.
Police responded to Phillip’s home Saturday after receiving a call of a baby not breathing. When they arrived, they found a neighbor performing CPR on Phillip’s 3-month-old daughter.
The baby was rushed to the hospital in critical condition suffering from severe skull fractures that kept her from breathing unassisted, and would die the next day.
Police say that when they questioned Phillips about his daughter’s injuries, he admitted that after the baby’s mother went to the store that he’d slammed his daughter on her back into the floor. Phillips was arrested and initially charged with child endangering and assault. After the infant died, aggravated murder charge were filed against him.
Phillips is being held on $4 million bond and is facing the death penalty if convicted. Despite police claiming he admitted what he did, his lawyer says Phillips denies harming his daughter and that his parents support him.…
The gruesome discovery was made after Rejuvenice employees came to work the other morning and found Ake dead inside one of the company’s cryotherapy chambers.
According to the Rejuvenice website, these “cryosaunas” or “cryochambers” are an alternative to cold water immersion or ice packs that decreases cell growth and increases cellular survival by subjecting the occupant with dry air that dips below -240 degrees Fahrenheit.
This treatment is only supposed to last two to four minutes, but Ake was in the chamber for at least 10 hours. Surveillance cameras show that after Ake closed up shop, she walked to the back where the cryochambers are located. There are no cameras in that area, so investigators can only assume Ake got into one of them by herself and that the machine did not turn off.
Investigators say it’s likely Ake suffocated within seconds, and say her death was due to “operator error.” Her family disputes this claim, stating Ake was an aesthetician and chamber operator who “knew exactly what she was doing.” They say investigators at the coroner’s office told them they were looking into the gases Ake inhaled before her death, as well as the chamber’s mechanics and whether she could keep her head above the chamber to breathe.…
GRANTS, NEW MEXICO – Damon Perry admitted to beating his friend to death with a guitar after binge watching The Walking Dead, explaining that he did so because his friend was turning into a zombie.
Police were called to the Vista Mesa Villa Apartments on Thursday after someone called to report an intoxicated man with a knife. When officers arrived on the scene, they found two apartment complex maintenance men restraining 23-year-old Damon Perry outside an apartment.
Inside the apartment police would find 23-year-old Christopher Paquinan. He was unconscious and appeared to have been brutally beaten. Paquinan was pronounced dead at the scene by responding emergency personnel.
Perry told police that he was the one who beat his friend to death, but that it was self-defense. According to Perry, he and Paquinan were drinking “large amount of alcohol” while binge watching The Walking Dead on Netflix.
At some point, Perry says his friend “began to change into a zombie” and started biting him. In order to protect himself, and save his friend from a fate worse than death, Perry admits beating Paquinan his hands, feet, a guitar, a microwave and other household items.…
INDIA – I normally stay away from stories out of India because no news from that area shocks me, but I have made an exception after a 13-year-old girl got revenge on her alleged rapist by decapitating the man’s five-year-old son.
According to reports, the teenager said that she was raped by a man called Rinku in the tiny village of Khair after he offered her some print erasing whitener – a substance that the girl reportedly likes to huff on.
Deciding to get some revenge against Rinku for the assault, the girl set her eyes on the man’s 5-year-old son, Amit. While the boy was playing outside his house on Tuesday evening, the girl allegedly lured him away, took him to a vacant plot and beheaded him.
Afterwards, she smashed the boy’s body with bricks, wrapped it in a polythene bag and set it on fire. His murder was discovered the next day after a pack of dogs were seen dragging around Amit’s half-burnt corpse.
The girl was taken into custody after Amit’s parents told police she was the last one seen with their son.…
LEBANON, OH – Robert Traylor was found guilty Friday of cutting off his 13-day-old daughter’s nose and sentenced to eight years in prison.
Last year, the child’s mother said she was in the kitchen doing dishes when her baby daughter, Kynzie, started crying. When she went to investigate, she found that the infant’s nose has been cut off.
“There was no nose. All you could see was bone. It was horrific,” she would say later.
During her call to 911, the woman told the operator that her 3-year-old son had bitten off his sister’s nose and that he displayed biting issues in the past. When the girl was admitted to the hospital, she was also suffering from two skull fractures, broken ribs and bruised feet.
These injuries, on top of the girl’s missing nose, led police to believe that there was more to this story than what was being told. This was confirmed when the mother of the baby changed her story and told police she believed her husband, 26-year-old Robert Taylor, was the person responsible for their daughter’s injuries.…

According to an affidavit in the case, the baby’s mother had asked Morales to feed the baby, then went to check on them when she noticed the baby would not stop crying.
That’s when she says she saw Morales “grinding his teeth” around the infant’s ear while the baby was screaming bloody murder. The mother was able to get the baby away from Morales and noticed he’d bitten off the top portion of the baby’s ear.
After taking the baby to a neighbor’s home to call for help, the infant was taken to the hospital. After speaking to the woman at the hospital, police arrested on a felony charge of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.
Morales had his bond set at $60,000 and is looking at anywhere between five to 99 years behind bars if convicted. Texas Child Protective Services have been notified.…
Police have arrested 61-year-old Ira Task after they say he, and other men, recorded themselves raping a 6-year-old boy.
Task’s arrest was the result of an investigation that started when federal investigators alerted Pennsylvania police that 19-year-old William Byers Augusta, who lives in North Middleton Township, had live-streamed the rape of a 6-year-old boy over a video-conferencing website back in July.
When police searched Augusta’s home, they found a laptop in the teen’s bedroom that contained numerous videos and photographs of child pornography. The investigation then led them to a second North Middleton Township where numerous computers and phones were seized, with one of the phones containing a particularly disturbing video.
In the video, which was taken in April, two adult males could be seen raping the same 6-year-old boy that Augusta had raped during a live-stream. Police say the rape was filmed by Augusta, and was shot in a way as to crop out the faces of the two men.…
Last Friday, a video was posted to Facebook by someone calling themselves Bdsb BroadDay. You can watch the video below, but it shows Hunter antagonizing a 45-year-old homeless woman who was sitting in Brown’s Park.
Eventually Hunter looks at the camera, does a windup and then sucker punches the woman in the face with a haymaker. Afterwards, the cameraman zooms in on the unconscious woman’s face while Hunter boasts about his cowardly act.
The woman was rushed to the hospital in serious condition suffering from serious head trauma. She spent the weekend in the hospital before signing herself out on Monday. That same day, police were able to identify Hunter and arrest him on a charge of aggravated assault.
As can be seen in his mugshot, Hunter got a little taste of his own medicine while being strip searched inside the jail. According to Warden Geraldine Cohen, Hunter lunged at the officer performing the search so the officer introduced Hunter’s face to the floor.…
NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – Police say a teen tried to rape a woman in South Carolina but was foiled when the victim kicked him in the balls then bit off his tongue.
Last Friday morning at around 6:30 a.m., a woman was awakened by a knock on her door. She got up and answered the door, but found no one there and went back to bed.
This happened two more times until the woman finally stepped outside to see who was knocking on her door and ringing her doorbell. According to a police report, the woman saw a man on the side of her house, holding a knife.
She screamed and ran back inside her home in an attempt to escape the man, but he followed and was able to force himself into her home before she was able to shut the door. The suspect then tackled the woman, punched her several times in the face and informed her to “stop fighting and I won’t hurt you.”
The suspect carried the victim into her bedroom where he tried to remove the victim’s shorts, but she wasn’t letting him have his way that easily.…
VIDOR, TX – Tanner Smith would have turned 6-years-old today, but on Sunday he was mauled to death by two pit bulls.
Tanner was with his mother visiting one of her mother’s friends when the attack happened.
When Tanner’s mother learned she had mistakenly thought her son was outside with her friend’s father, she went outside and found Tanner had been mauled by the family’s two pit bulls.
According to Tanner’s grandmother, the boy had been bitten about 16 times, including a bite to the main artery in his neck. The dog’s owners performed CPR on Tanner until paramedics arrived, but he would be pronounced dead at the hospital.
One of the dogs was shot on the spot by the homeowner, while the other was taken by animal control. The dogs were in a fenced in yard and are often around children, including the homeowner’s grandchildren. Police say they do not plan on pressing charges against anyone.
What a horribly tragic end for a boy who was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, and had already endured three open heart surgeries in his short life.…
MIAMI, FL – Eduardo Sanchez, a 43-year-old employee at The Knife Steak House, got his ass busted filming a child using the bathroom inside the restaurant.
On Friday, a boy was with his family at the restaurant when he went to use the bathroom. As he was in the stall, he heard someone enter the neighboring stall.
As he was sitting on the toilet, the boy told police he heard the sound of a cellphone being turned on. Moments later he looked up to see someone was filming him over the stall partition with a white cellphone.
The boy yelled that he was calling the police, causing Sanchez to run out of the bathroom. Unfortunately for Sanchez, this kid wasn’t an idiot. After calling his father over, he was able to pick out Sanchez by his shoes and pants.
“The kid was actually very astute. He recalled the shoes the person had on and the color of the cellphone, and that is how we were able to identify who the person was,” said Officer Kenia Fallat with Miami Police.…
