In The Mean Time...
PHOENIX, AZ – A man has admitted to hacking up his 13-year-old son with an ax because he thought the boy was a demon sent from Hell to eat him.
Police were called to 51-year-old Gary Sherrill’s home after his ex-wife called to report Sherrill had not returned their son to her. The couple shared custody of the boy and Sherrill was supposed to bring him back to her home on New Year’s Eve.
When police arrived at his home, Sherrill initially told them his son was not home. He eventually allowed the officers into his home to check for themselves, and the officers found David dead inside. The boy had suffered stab wounds and lacerations to several parts of his body.
When asked what the hell happened to his kid, Sherrill told them he killed the poor kid with an ax. But it was self defense, Sherrill explained. His son was actually a demon and was going to eat him.
Police arrested Sherrill and charged him with first-degree murder. Some of Sherrill’s neighbors said they’d seen the couple arguing in the past, and that Sherrill had been acting strange lately.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – Another year of horrible stories has come and gone. Even though we had a semi-rough year with a lack of writers and some intermittent site issues, we were still able to get approximately 1000 articles posted for 2013.
There were some messed up stuff in those articles, but it seems as if our readers are still drawn to the stories that involved murdered or abused children. Out of the top 10 stories on the site for 2013, seven of them involve children. I have provided a link to the original article, while summarizing the details and providing updates, if any.
For anyone interested, this list was compiled by using Google data. So while we may have stories that were more popular with members and have more comments, these are the 10 stories that got the most traffic.
Once again, I want to thank everyone who has helped out the site over this last year – from the writers who’ve come, gone, and stayed to all you sick readers who continue to put up with all the grammatical errors.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Police have accused 18-year-old Alexis Valdez of cutting off the head of his aunt’s boyfriend, then leaving the head on her bed “as a present” for Christmas.
Prosecutors say the teen was living with his aunt and her boyfriend, 41-year-old Silvestre Diaz-Hernandez, inside a basement apartment. After multiple arguments, the couple told Valdez he would have to move out since he was unable to help pay the bills.
Instead, Valdez attacked Diaz-Hernandez on Christmas morning, smashing in the man’s skull with a hammer. He then turned up some music, covered the apartment’s windows, and proceeded to cut off Diaz-Hernandez’s head. He also cut off the man’s left arm, his ears and his nose. After gouging out the man’s eyes, the teen placed the decapitated head on his aunt’s bed.
“He wanted to ‘leave his aunt a present,’” Assistant State’s Attorney Kingsley Sawyer told reporters.
Before leaving the apartment, Valdez called 911 to report a dead body. When the 911 operator asked if he’d attempted CPR, Valdez just laughed and informed the operator that the body had no head.…Continue Reading
CASA GRANDE, AZ – Police have accused 35-year-old Connie Villa of murdering her 13-year-old daughter on Christmas Day during an attempt to kill her entire family.
Police were called to Villa’s apartment by her ex-husband Wednesday night. He told them he was driving himself to the hospital after being stabbed by Villa multiple times. When officers forced their way into the apartment, they found Villa suffering from self-inflicted stab wounds and holding a knife to her chest.
To make things worse, three of her children – ages 3, 5, and 8 - were standing at her side. After Villa was detained, her 13-year-old daughter, Aniarael Macias, was found dead in the bathroom. A cause of death has not been determined, but police say Villa forced her children to ingest “prescription narcotic drugs in an attempt to kill them.”
Villa and her three surviving children were transported to area hospitals. The kids are expected to be ok even though each were found with “trace amounts” of opiates in their systems. They have since been placed in the custody of their father’s family.…Continue Reading
A popular high school teacher in Arizona was killed after he and his wife were both attacked by the family’s pet boxer.
The former Mayor of Bullhead City, Diane Vick, called 911 on Saturday to report she and her husband, 64-year-old Thomas Vick, had been attacked by their pet boxer while trying to break up a fight between it and the family’s cocker spaniel.
“They both attempted to break up the fight, but the boxer suddenly turned and began attacking them,” Lt. Nick Sessions said.
Thomas Vick got the worst of it and was taken to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center where he would later die from his injuries. Diane is in intensive care but is expected to survive. She “was pretty beat up,”’ Bullhead City Mayor Jack Hakim said.
Both dogs are being held at the Bullhead City Animal Control facility. …Continue Reading
Houston, TX – A man has been charged with a hate crime after he decided to play the “knockout game” and punched an elderly black man in the face because of his race.
Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, has been charged with a federal hate crime after he filmed himself punching the 79-year-old man on November 24. Barrett recorded the assault on his cell phone and later bragged about it. The victim ended up in the hospital for four days were he was treated for a fractured jaw and some missing teeth.
Barrett was caught after he walked up to a random couple inside a restaurant and asked them if they’d ever heard of the knockout game. He went on to say that he’d played the game that very day and showed them the video on his cell phone of him attacking the elderly man.
In the video, Barrett walks up to the victim asking him, “How is it going, man?” before sucker punching him in the face. The man immediately falls to the concrete while Barrett laughs, says “knockout,” then jumps into his car and drives away.…Continue Reading
TAMPA, FL – A father and his teenage son drowned on Christmas day while doing some cave diving with some new diving gear they had received as presents.
Deputies got a call from 35-year-old Darrin Spivey’s fiancee at around 3 p.m. after he and his 15-year-old son, Dillon Sanchez, did not return home from a cave dive as scheduled.
Spivey and his son had went out to the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Refuge earlier that morning to test out some new diving equipment inside an underwater cave known as the Eagle’s Nest Sink – an underwater cave that can reach depths of 300-feet.
She ended up driving out to the location and called police when she found Spivey’s car still in the parking lot but could find no sign of the pair, and Spivey would not answer his cell phone. A hunter told police he’d seen the pair suiting up to dive at around 11 a.m., but did not see them at anytime afterwards.
Divers went into the cave to search for the father and son, and found their bodies in the main cavern area.…Continue Reading
Gulf Breeze, FL – Police say 17-year-old Brandon Aydelott murdered his mother on Christmas Eve then smiled as he described the brutal attack to investigators.
According to reports, Brandon and his mother, Sharon Aydelott, have not been getting long well the last few months. The arguing between the two had gotten so bad that the promising pitcher on the Gulf Breeze High School baseball team had moved out of the home and was staying with a friend since September.
When one of Sharon’s friends went to visit her on Christmas Eve, they found the front door was open and smeared with blood. Just inside the home they found Sharon lying dead in a pool of blood. She’d been beaten, stabbed, had her throat slashed, and had a large kitchen knife protruding from her eye socket.
Police tracked Brandon down to the home where he’d been staying and was taken into custody without resistance. Police noted that his clothes were clean, but he did have a bit of dried blood on his wrist.…Continue Reading
Flossmoor, IL – A 15-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing his older brother to death because of his alleged bullying.
Police were at the family’s home just before 1 a.m. Friday on a domestic violence call. Inside the home they found 25-year-old Steven Tigue (pictured) suffering from multiple stab wounds inflicted by his brother, 15-year-old Michael Tigue.
The boy’s mother told police she woke up to the two brothers fighting and broke up the fight. She then told Michael to call 911 for his brother. Steven Tigue was taken to the hospital where he would die a short time later.
Police questioned Michael who would admit that he’d planned the attack on his brother because of past bullying. He reportedly waited for his brother in a bedroom and began beating him with a golf club when he got home. When his older brother was able to take the golf club away from him, Michael pulled out a steak knife and repeatedly stabbed his brother in the chest.
Michael Tigue was arrested and charged as an adult with first degree murder and ordered held on $2 million bond.…Continue Reading
GALIVANTS FERRY, SC - Police have arrested 18-year-old Chris Heuser after they say he planned to rape and kill a teenage girl in his neighborhood.
On Sunday, a teen called police to report she’d come home to find one of her windows broken and her car tires slashed. She called back a second time to report finding a wallet and knives in a ditch next to her house. What had her more scared than a possible burglary was the handwritten note found inside the wallet.
It was a 14-part plan to stab, rape and dump her body, complete with estimated times to complete each of the tasks. She said she believed the note was written by Heuser, a boy with mental issues who lived down the street with his foster parents. He’d repeatedly stopped by her house hours earlier saying he was searching for his cell phone.
Investigators paid Heuser a visit at his home and found a letter with “what appeared to be the exact handwriting as the letter found in the ditch next to the house that was broken into”, according to a police report. …Continue Reading
Here, Now – I know I’m late getting this one posted, but this is last week’s Pulpit of Doom Podcast with myself, Jaded and Athena talking about the top ten stories for that week.
These stories included pit bull shenanigans, starving babies, inbred mutants, penis helicopters, and much, much more. Unfortunately, the guy who ass-raped a woman with his fist was number one for the third week in a row. Luckily, it looks like it has finally fallen down the list and will be gone before tomorrow night’s podcast
I also went on a mini-rant about some of our readers and their hypocritical stance regarding what bad news we should post, and what we shouldn’t. Some do not seem to understand that we simply pick the worst stories we can find. If that means pit bulls mauling people to death or a child being raped and murdered. It’s basic yellow journalism. It’s Schadenfreude. We just don’t have any issues admitting that.
We also stress to our readers that we are not true reflection of society, just a very small percentage of it.…Continue Reading
London – The lead singer for Lostprophets, 36-year-old Ian Watkins, was accused of a slew of child sex related crimes that included trying to rape a baby, sexually touching a 1-year-old, encouraging a fan to abuse her child and making child pornography.
He pleaded pleaded guilty last month to 13 charges and was sentenced yesterday to 29 years in prison. But that’s the good news. I’m here with some bad news – in the form of Judge Roger John Royce’s statements during the sentencing. His statements were directed to Watkins and the two women accused of raping their babies for Watkins’ pleasure, and included the following remark:
“I am satisfied that you are a deeply corrupting influence, you are highly manipulative, you are a sexual predator, you are dangerous,” Judge Roger John Royce said. “The public and, in particular, young females need protection from you.”
Before we get to the rest of his statements, it has also been revealed that police are now investigating whether Watkins committed similar crimes abroad.…Continue Reading
Arlington, TX – After holding up the Educational Employees Credit Union in Arlington Tuesday afternoon, and walking out the door with a reported $5,000 in his hands, an alleged bank robber got robbed. Heh.
When Larry Poulos walked into the credit union and handed the teller a deposit slip with the word “bomb” written on the back, the teller first thought she was the victim of a very, very bad joke. When Poulos started fidgeting around with something in his waistband, the woman started stuffing the provided bag with cash.
Poulos exited the bank and took off running like his ass was on fire. Right about then, someone called police to report seeing a man running through an apartment complex behind the bank holding a bag with money flying out of it. Nope, not suspicious at all….
Poulos’ roommate later told police Poulos entered the apartment shortly after 1:00 and disappeared into a back bedroom. Just moments later, two rather large men walked into the apartment. After some sort of short-lived commotion, those two men exited the apartment carrying handfuls of money.…Continue Reading
Canton, MI — A 44-year-old father was arraigned Wednesday on six charges of possessing child pornography after he accidentally forwarded several disturbing images from his cell phone to a wrong number.
An unidentified Canton man showed up at the police department Sunday with concerns about some images that were texted to his phone.
“On his cell phone he received some messages that were explicit in nature, and there were children on them. He was disgusted,” Detective Sergeant Chad Baugh said. “These children were nude and in sexual positions.” And it didn’t take long for police to find the person responsible for sending the images.
Baugh claims Joel Dummann was trying to send the images from one of his phones to another when he inadvertently entered the wrong number. A search of Dummann’s home revealed additional images, all graphic in nature.
Dummann has been ordered held on $250,000 cash bond or 10% cash surety. He also cannot have unsupervised contact with minors, including his young daughter.
Can you imagine being the poor fucker that received those images?…Continue Reading
Norfolk, VA — A 31-year-old man is facing numerous charges after police say he flashed a handgun in the general direction of a manager at McDonald’s when said manager informed him he must fill out an application for employment online.
According to police, Tevin Monroe walked into a Norfolk McDonald’s last week and asked for a job application. The manager on duty informed Monroe they don’t do paper applications anymore — the application process is handled online. Because fuck doing things the old-fashioned way…. it’s all about cold, hard technology, bitch. Just click “Submit,” cross your fingers and pray an actual human looks at it and has the courtesy to get back in touch, k?
Anyway, Tevin wasn’t buying the whole “we don’t have paper applications” thing and asked again. Nonverbally. Like, with a gun. Tevin didn’t even have to remove the handgun from his waistband, he just flashed it. Then, whaddyaknow? A paper application appeared in the manager’s hands.
Poor, stupid Tevin was sitting down in the restaurant filling out that application when police arrived.…Continue Reading
Mayo allegedly popped some Xanax, then headed to Walmart for some new clothes, makeup and jewelry. Initially seen by loss prevention officers in the store, Mayo had been filling a trash bag with items pilfered from the shelves totaling $1,148.67. She then stumbled into the clothing section, removed the clothes she wore into the store, dumped them into a trash can and stood in the aisle, naked, looking for some new threads.
By the time officers arrived, Mayo was apparently disoriented and didn’t know where she was. According to Officer Charles Haubrich’s report, “Her speech was slurred, she was unsteady on her feet, couldn’t hold her head up, and her pupils were like pin holes.” Classy.
Not long afterward, a female officer arrived on the scene to escort Mayo into a dressing room and assist her in changing back into the clothes she arrived in. Not surprisingly, 36 Xanax pills were allegedly recovered from Mayo’s purse, of which she admitted to taking two of before the incident.…Continue Reading
On Dec. 7th, police responded to a home after a woman found her 6-month-old unresponsive in a playpen. The child, identified only as “J.B.”, was rushed to the hospital where he would be pronounced dead hours later.
According to the affidavit, The boy suffered bruising to his forehead, cheek, nose, right side of his head and base of the skull, as well as blood coming out of one of his ears. An autopsy revealed the child also had a subdural hematoma on his brain.
Walker was the one caring for J.B. the night he died, but he claimed he never harmed the boy. When he was interviewed a second time, he finally came clean. He said he was watching the University of Oklahoma/Oklahoma State football game on television when he got angry with the child’s crying during the second half of the game.
He stated that he picked up J.B.…Continue Reading
Early Monday morning, Camlin went on what he thought would be a nice bike ride, only to be hit from behind by a vehicle matching the description of Inostroza’s black Ford Mustang. After impact, police say, Camlin hit the front windshield, rolled over the roof of the car, and landed onto the back windshield where he was wedged between the window and the spoiler.
Inostroza is said to have then driven for another two miles before dumping the injured man in a wooded area behind a dumpster. After that, he did what every normal person does after an accident — he went home and took a nap.
A few hours later, a landscaping crew found the man clinging to life. 911 was called and Camlin was taken to the hospital. His body temperature was so low when they got to him that if he hadn’t been found when he was, it’s likely he wouldn’t have survived.…Continue Reading
Brooklyn, NY – A teenage couple suffered serious burns after they attempted to make a potent form of marijuana but only ended up blowing themselves up inside a garage.
Anthony Gambale, 19, and Gabriella Katanov, 17, were making their stash 80 percent stronger by creating what is called “ear wax,” “dabs,” “honey oil,” or “butter.” The names are derived from the final product’s yellowish color and gooey consistency.
There are many how-to videos available online showing people how they can turn their herb into ear wax if you want to try it yourself, but one of the main steps includes soaking your marijuana in butane.
This couple had already finished that step, using a 30-gallon tub to cover some cannabis, and were in the process of evaporating the gas when one of the morons decided that was the perfect time to light up a cigarette.
The resulting explosion woke up the neighbors, who reported hearing the couple screaming for help from inside the burning garage. Gambale and Katanov were both transported to Staten Island University Hospital in serious condition, suffering from second- and third-degree burns.…Continue Reading
BAKERSFIELD, CA – A 17-year-old girl has been accused of murdering the 2-year-old boy she was supposed to be babysitting.
The teen was supposed to be caring for Kayden Webb while his mother was helping out at her own mother’s house. It’s not clear who called for help, but Webb stopped breathing around 3:15 a.m. Monday morning. Emergency crews transported Webb to a nearby hospital, but the boy would be pronounced dead a few hours later.
Later the same day, investigators said they’d developed enough probable cause to arrest the teen and book her into juvenile hall, accused of first-degree murder and assault on a child causing death. They have not reported exactly how the boy died, but Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt said there was evidence the boy had been assaulted.
“It’s our belief, at this point, that he died as a result of injuries that he sustained while he was with the female suspect,” Pruitt told reporters. “We were able to develop information that leads us to believe that she’s responsible for his death.”
Neighbors say the teen was homeless and Webb’s mother had let her stay in her home because she didn’t want the teen living on the street.…Continue Reading
