In The Mean Time...
According to reports, 28-year-old Rebecca Sardoni boarded a school bus Friday morning with her 51-year-old mother, Stephanie Sardoni. The pair were on the bus looking for one of the kids they say have been bullying Rebecca’s daughter as she rode the bus to and from East Dover Elementary School.
“Who is Vinny?” she asked according to other students and the bus driver. When Vinny raised his hand, the mother-daughter pair walked to the back of the bus where he was sitting and had a talk with him about his alleged bullying.
By “talk with him” I mean that they screamed and cursed at them while Rebecca allegedly slapped Vinny in the face. Not quite satisfied, Rebecca then slapped the face of the boy who was sitting next to Vinny. She also told them that she was taking them to court.
Both Vinny and the other boy were treated by Toms River school nurses for cuts to their mouths.…
According to the boyfriend, Peel had been acting a little “off” for quite some time, going as far as threatening to “seek revenge on him while he slept” (*swoons*) if he ever cheated on her.
On the day of the alleged cutting, Peel had apparently been drinking heavily. The boyfriend told police she had injured herself in a drunken fall and refused medical treatment. At some point that night, he issued an ultimatum: Seek mental help within 24-hours. After preparing dinner for the both of them, he wisely made up a bed in the living room so as not to disturb Sleeping Beauty once she fell into a drunken slumber.
A short time later, the man said, he heard Peel wake up. And after having a bit to eat and feeding the cat, she approached the man’s make-shift bed and gently woke him up.…
FREEDOM, PA — A 9-year-old girl attending a Halloween party was shot by a relative who mistakenly thought the girl was a skunk.
New Sewickley Police Chief Ronald Leindecker said the girl was at a Halloween party Saturday wearing a black costume and a black hat with white tassel. At around 8:30 that evening, the girl strayed away from the two to three dozen guests at the home and hid on the edge of a hill near the home.
Unfortunately for her, a male relative at the party thought she was a skunk, and he really does not like skunks. The unidentified man grabbed a shotgun and fired, hitting the “skunk” in the shoulder, arm, back and neck.
She was reportedly conscious and talking as she was airlifted to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh where she currently remains in the intensive car unit. Leindecker says the relative hadn’t been drinking at the time of the shooting, and he doesn’t know if any charges will be filed against him.
I’m not sure how big skunks get in Pennsylvania, but where I live they never get much bigger than an average cat.…
Splendora, TX – Robbie Middleton, a 20-year-old man who had been struggling most of his life with burns sustained in a 1998 attack, taped a video just prior to his death in April 2011. In it, he accuses Don Collins, who was 13-years-old at the time of the incident, not only with setting him ablaze, but also raping him two weeks prior to the debilitating attack.
Middleton was celebrating his eighth birthday back in 1998, walking a forest path on his way to a friend’s house, when he encountered Collins, who allegedly tied him to a tree with fishing line, threw a cup of gasoline on his face, and lit him on fire. Middleton was able to free himself, but only after the heat of the blaze had melted the lines securing him. His burns, as you might imagine, were traumatic, leaving him permanently disfigured and without eyelids.
Though Collins was detained right after the attack, he was never formally charged due to a lack of evidence to make a conviction likely. …
Buffalo, NY – A man has been found guilty of beating his 10-year-old stepson to death with a rolling pin after arguing with the boy about homework.
Prosecutors say that on April 17, 10-year-old Abdifatah Mohamud climbed out a window of his home and ran down the street. A neighbor driving by saw the boy running with his stepfather, 41-year-old Mohamed Mohamud, chasing after him. She pulled over and gave Mohamud a ride so he could catch up to his stepson.
After catching up to the boy, Abdi told the woman he did not want to go back home with his stepfather, but Mohamud pulled Abdi into the vehicle and the neighbor took them back home. The neighbor said she stood at the entrance and asked Abdi if he wanted to come study at her house, but Mohamud told her he wasn’t going to do anything to the boy and she could leave.
According to Mohamud, Abdi would not stop trying to flee the house after the neighbor left, so he used electrical cord to tie him to a chair in the basement.…
Lufkin, TX – Angela Buchanan, 30, was arrested Monday on charges that she had impersonated a gynecologist to lure her long-time friend into a lesbian relationship.
In the interest of not having to constantly use the words “allegedly,” “supposedly,” and “reportedly,” I’m going to tell you right now that the text to follow is all information according to arrest affidavits.
Buchanan contacted the 51-year-old victim on Yahoo! Messenger, posing as “Doc,” a local physician who was advising Buchanan regarding a prior bout with breast cancer that had originally surfaced in 2008, back when she was living with a former partner with whom she’d had two children via in vitro fertilization. Confused yet? It gets better. Pay attention here.
After Buchanan’s alter ego, “Doc,” had made online contact with the victim, Buchanan informed her that “Doc” was a person with whom she had a close, personal, mother/daughter-type relationship. The victim accepted and believed this.
Back online, “Doc” informed the victim that Buchanan had recently been diagnosed with a pre-cancerous mass in her breast, but that its progression might be slowed, or even cured, if Buchanan were able to produce certain hormones that the body would naturally release during…you guessed it…sexual activity.…
DALLAS , TX — – According to police, a woman opened fire on a pair of burglars who had broken into her home and only one of the burglars lived to talk about it.
According to the Dallas Police Department, 47-year-old Eric Ford and 19-year-old Isaiah Phillip Williams kicked in the front door of a home owned by Charles Brown. As they charged their way upstairs, they met Brown’s 21-year-old daughter who had been sleeping in an upstairs bedroom.
Before I go on, here’s a little background. This house has been the target of burglars several times in the past. In Jan 2008, a car was stolen from the driveway, In Dec of that year, someone broke into the house and stole a CD player, diamond rings, necklaces and a digital camera.
In response to these burglaries, Brown taught his daughter how to shoot a gun and told her that it should the house alarm ever go off, be prepared. Seems as if his daughter was paying attention because when Ford and Williams met her, she was at the top of the stairs and had opened fire at them with a handgun she had armed herself with.…
MIDLOTHIAN, VA – A teacher has been fired after a former student shamed her all to hell on Twitter by revealing he had sex with her and backed up his claims with a series of nude photos and explicit text messages she’d sent him.
Justin Foster is a former student at Cosby High School in Midlothian, Virginia. The 18-year-old got drunk the other day and took to his Twitter with claims of some really big news to come. “Hahahaha oh man shit going down tonight please if you attend Cosby or used to please be on twitter it’ll be a treat” he posted Tuesday night. He wasn’t kidding.
What followed was a series of posts that contained nude photos of Anna Michelle Walters, a substitute teacher at Cosby High that Foster claims to have had sex with when he was a 17-year-old student there.
He also included a series of text messages between him and Walters that make it pretty clear that the two were involved in a sexual relationship. Aside from her telling Foster that by him having sex with her that he is the envy of his entire class, she also informs him that she had to adjust her vagina to accommodate his huge penis.…
Vancouver, Canada – A 32-year-old Internet bully who allegedly drove 15-year-old Amanda Todd to hang herself on October 10th has been outed by Anonymous, a world-famous computer hacking organization.
When Amanda Todd was just 12 years old, a man in an Internet chat room convinced her to flash her breasts on webcam. A year later, she asserted that he contacted her again and insisted that she perform a little show for him. She declined and the man responded by posting the year-old picture of her breasts to a Facebook page of his own creation, using the picture as its profile photo. He then messaged her friends to announce its existence.
News of the new page spread quickly amongst her classmates, leading to relentless online bullying and ridicule, causing her to drink to excess, become depressed and suicidal, and cut her own arms.
Todd moved to a new city and a new school, but the bullying picked right up again when she began a romantic relationship with an older man who had a girlfriend. …
LAS VEGAS, NV — A man has been charged with attempted murder after he set fire to a man who was harassing him at a Las Vegas gas station.
According to police, Theodore Bejarano was inside Cricle K store drinking on Oct 10. The clerk told him he was not allowed to loiter inside the store and asked him to leave. At around the same time, 61-year-old Patrick Newell had arrived at the store to get gas. After paying, he left the store only to encounter a drunken Bejarano leaning against his truck. Bejarano asked for a ride, but Newell refused, telling him he was driving a business vehicle.
Bejarano allegedly didn’t like that answer and kept bugging Newell to the point that Newell threatened to cut Bejarano with a pocketknife if he didn’t leave him alone. But instead of cutting the man, Newell went back inside the store and told the clerk that he was being harassed at the pumps and to call police. When he returned to his truck, Bejarano continued harassing him.…
New Orleans, LA — This happened last week, but it has been siting in draft for days and I am tired of looking at it. A 19-year-old LSU student has been charged with attempted murder after police say she tried to kill her mother for inheritance money.
Last week, 52-year-old Sherri Boover received a knock on her door at 4.30am. When she looked through the peephole, she was greeted by her smiling daughter, Nicole Boover. But when she opened the door, Nicole pulled out a handgun and aimed it at her. The quick thinking mother immediately slammed the door shut before Nicole fired several rounds into the door and ran off.
Uninjured, Sherri called police and informed them they could probably find Nicole at the LSU dorms where she was currently staying. Outside of the dorm, police would find Nicole’s car with 18-year-old Nathan Yuhas, a friend and classmate of Nicole’s, sitting inside it. They would find Nicole in her dorm room.
Yuhas would spill his guts pretty quickly, telling investigators that Nicole had enlisted his help in murdering her parents in order to collect a $500,000 inheritance from which he would get a $50,000 cut.…
Mesquite, TX — A woman in Texas is facing felony charges after she allegedly identified an undercover narcotics officer by posting his picture and his job on Facebook.
Earlier this month, someone notified police of a post Melissa Walthall, 30, had made on Facebook. It was a photograph of a man labeled “Undercover Mesquite Narcotics” with the caption “Anyone know this bitch.” According to the arrest affidavit, a warrant was issued for Walthall’s arrest after her post was deemed a “viable threat to that officer’s safety.”
When questioned, Walthall told police she had seen the photograph on a flyer her friend had made, and had posted it online because the officer had testified against her friend two months earlier in a drug case. She would not tell police who the friend was, but a computer search led police to 34-year-old George Pickens and his brother, 26-year-old Bobby Stedham.
Pickens told investigators he and his brother found the undercover officer’s Facebook page after doing some sleuthing online, then used the man’s photo to make flyers to display “like garage sale signs,” according to the affidavit.…
Salt Lake City, UT — More details have been released in the case of a mentally ill man who stabbed his 84-year-old grandmother to death earlier this month.
On Oct 3, police were called to the home of Joyce “Honey” Dexter where they found her grandson, 21-year-old Zachary Weston, covered in blood and standing over her dead body while holding a bloody knife. Weston later told investigators that he “stabbed his grandma” and that he “slit her belly, her jugular and her heart.” As overkill as that all sounds, it’s still an understatement.
A medical examiner later determined that Dexter had been stabbed 111 times, nine of those to her heart, and that several of Dexter’s internal organs had been removed. Because of the heinous nature of the crime, Weston was charged with aggravated murder. Since this happened in Utah, that means Weston is looking at a possible death sentence.
Weston’s family says that he’s had long-standing mental issues that have gotten progressively worse, calling his life a “tragedy in slow motion.” Weston was diagnosed with schizophrenia and has told others he was hearing voices. …
HUNTSVILLE, TX — Police in Texas say a 10-year-old boy was at home when he shot his sister and then fatally shot himself.
Sheriff’s deputies said that sometime late Thursday, Coby Tucker walked into his 15-year-old sister’s bedroom and shot her multiple times with a small caliber handgun before turning the gun on himself. The siblings’ father was at work at the time, but their mother was downstairs and called 911 after hearing the first shots.
Coby and his sister, Ashley, were flown to the hospital were Coby was pronounced dead. Ashley underwent surgery and is currently listed in good condition. At this time, police do not have a motive. “We have not been able to talk to the girl because she was in surgery this morning,” Detective Greg Williams said. “It is still early in the investigation, and we are not sure why this happened.”
Police did say they think that Cody got the handgun from a locked gun safe in the home and that, at this time, no charges will be filed against the parents. …
Dallas, TX — The cheery lookin’ chickie to the left is 35-year-old Yakia Lashonta Mays – she was arrested earlier this month after allegedly threatening to cut her mother because the woman had the audacity to complain about a used tampon left on a bathroom counter.
Police were called to the home Yakia shares with her mother, 52-year-old Sandra Mays, on October 9, and learned the pair were involved in a verbal altercation after Sandra confronted her nasty ass daughter about a bloody gash plug left sitting on the counter top. *gag*
As the argument grew more heated, Yakia reportedly armed herself with a kitchen knife and threatened to get all kinds of stabby.
According to the police report, Yakia “charged” after her mother with the knife, screaming, “I’m gonna kill you, bitch!” Fearing for her life, the elder Mays quickly retreated to her bedroom, locking the door behind her. And you just know her batshit crazy spawn was right on her heels…
Yakia apparently attempted to break the door down, declaring, “Bitch, I’m gonna stab you in the middle of your fucking forehead.” Heh.…
Santa Fe Springs, CA — According to the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, a 62-year-old man working at a Bumble Bee tuna plant died after he was cooked inside an oven.
Sometime around 7 a.m. Thursday, Jose Malena was found inside a cooking device they are calling a “steamer machine.” Paramedics were called but they pronounced Malena dead as soon as they arrived.
Although they know who the man is, the coroner’s office is having some issues positively identifying Malena because of how badly his body was damaged in the machine. He died as a result of being “trapped in a pressure cooker,” Lt. Cheryl MacWillie said, bringing up images that do not play well with the breakfast burritos I ate earlier.
An investigation is currently underway in hopes of finding out how Malena, who had worked at the factory for six years, ended up inside the machine. I did a little Googling to find out exactly what this steamer machine looks like, and found some images of an industrial tuna steamer sold by JBT.…
Corpus Christi, TX – Laura Lee Day, 47, was arrested on child endangerment charges after her stepson, 6-year-old Taylor Syring, drowned in shallow water near Bob Hall Pier on October 5th. Investigation into Day’s past has revealed a criminal past rife with serious charges.
On October 5th, Laura Lee Day took Taylor Syring to the beach. She reportedly allowed him to take his life jacket off to play. However, some time later, he appeared on the surface of the water face-down and unresponsive. According to a police affidavit, Day did not call 911, did not enlist the aid of anyone else on the beach, and did not administer CPR, though she is a licensed diver who is certified to perform it.
Instead, she chose to drive to Bay Area Hospital, which is 12 miles away, because she says she believed it would take too long for EMTs to arrive on the scene. Doctors attempted to revive the boy for 30 minutes before pronouncing him dead.
There were no witnesses to the incident. …
Jacksonville, FL – Ronald Eugene Robinson, 34, has been arrested on federal charges of tampering with consumer products after he allegedly returned as many as twelve used, resealed saline enemas to a CVS store. Several of the enemas were actually repurchased by unsuspecting, anally-retentive customers.
If convicted of the current charges, Robinson faces up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Police contend that the repackaged enemas were returned for a refund between April 10th and June 15th and that fluid inside the packages tested positive for fecal matter.
The CVS store assures the public that they alerted authorities to the incidents as soon as they discovered them and have been cooperating with the investigation. They also say they have notified everyone who might have purchased product tainted with Robinson’s back-washed bum-juice.
“We fully cooperated with the authorities in their investigation of this matter and worked closely with the authorities to identify and contact any customer who purchased any of the potentially impacted enema products,” a CVS spokesperson wrote in an email statement.…
