In The Mean Time...
Jacksonville, FL — Last year we reported on 35-year-old Dalina Nicholas, the woman accused of repeatedly pimping her six-year-old daughter out to homeless men in exchange for cash and crack. The other day she pleaded guilty to four counts of child neglect.
For those of you who missed the original story, police were flagged down by a homeless man who reported witnessing Nicholas’ daughter being sexually assaulted while he was in her home doing drugs. He said that over a two year period, he had witnessed the girl being sexually abused by other men, including a time when Nicholas accepted $20 from a man and then instructed her daughter to get naked so the man could perform oral sex on her.
He finally decided to do something about it after the girl confided to him what was happening to her and asked him to help her make it stop. The investigation that followed would lead to the arrest of Nicholas, who had fled to Georgia, and four men. Quinn Brooks, 57, and Ryan Harrover, were charged with sexual battery and lewd or lascivious molestation while John Hagans, 48, and Norman Thompson, 52, were charged with sexual battery.…
Jackson, TN — A pit bull in Tennessee is about to be euthanized at a local animal shelter after it was abandoned by the owner. The reason the owner abandoned the animal? The dog humped another male dog and the owner doesn’t want to own a gay animal.
The dog was posted on a Facebook page that lists dogs scheduled to be put down at a Tennessee “kill shelter.”
“This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he’s mean or bc he tears things up, but because… His owner says he’s gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a “gay” dog! Even if that weren’t the most assinine thing I’ve ever heard, its still discrimination! Don’t let this gorgeous dog die bc his owner is ignorant of normal dog behavior! He’s in kennel 10L and he WILL be put down tomorrow bc there is no room at the inn!”
Although homosexual behavior has been well documented within 1,500 species of animal, the fact that this dog got his groove on with another male dog doesn’t necessarily mean it prefers to feel its lipstick in the warm embrace of another male dog’s butthole (not that there’s anything wrong with that), as the dog could have simply been exerting his dominating over the other dog.…
Portland, OR — A 15-year-old boy is still clinging to life after hanging himself from some playground equipment at Central Elementary School.
Last Saturday, Jadin Bell was found by a passerby after the teen had climbed on top of a play structure and hanged himself. The person who found Bell tried rescuing the teen who was taken to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital where he remains on life support.
Reports are that Bell is an openly gay student at LHS where he is also a cheerleader. Even though he has a supportive family and large network of friends, Bell has been the target of bullying, reportedly in person and online.
School administrators confirmed that Bell had recently spoken with a school counselor and that they were investigating “a name calling incident.” In light of Bell’s attempted suicide, they’e also concerned about the other teen who was involved. Friends say that Bell had complained about bullying before, but that they have a hard time believing that this is what lead to Bell trying to take his own life.…
Scottsdale, AZ — Jason London, the actor best known for his role as Randall “Pink” Floyd in DAZED AND CONFUSED, was arrested after getting his ass kicked by some bouncers at an Arizona club, and produced one of the most hilarious celebrity mugshots I have seen since Nick Nolte’s. He also allegedly shit his pants on purpose, but we’ll get to that in a second.
The 40-year-old was with his wife at the Martini Ranch nightclub in Scottsdale, Arizona when he reportedly sneezed on a bouncer. When the bouncer asked for an apology, London punched the man in the face.
This led to London being ejected from the club and getting his face rearranged in the process. When police arrived, London became even more belligerent and shoved one of the paramedics who had arrived to treat him.
London then had some choice words for the police when they arrested him for disorderly conduct and assault. “Guess what faggot? I fucking love this. I fucking own you guys so hard,” London reportedly yelled at the officers.…
Crest Hill, IL — A man has been arrested after “accidentally” running over his wife in their garage. Police say the man called 911 for assistance and was seen stomping on the woman’s face when paramedics arrived.
Jerry Nichols, 62, apparently called 911 Saturday morning and told the dispatcher he had accidentally ran over his wife, 55-year-old Diane Nichols, with his Honda sedan.
Paramedics quickly responded to the couple’s address, and when they pulled up, witnessed Mr. Nichols stomping on the woman’s face. Why? Because without the proper distance and speed, a Honda isn’t going to do shit, except maybe break a bone or two.
Diane Nichols was pronounced dead at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center later that day.
Police say they have yet to determine a motive. My guess? Dude was pissed.
In court Monday, Nichols’ attorney argued that Nichols, who has no previous criminal history, had been a longtime employee of the LaGrange Public Works Department before retiring. Murphy also said Nichols is also a Vietnam veteran, has lived his entire life in Illinois and was married to his wife for 12 years before her untimely death.…
An obviously offended resident put in a call to 911 at about 9:30 Friday night to complain about a butt-nekkid pedestrian who appeared to be masturbating.
Officers caught up with the alleged wanker, identified as Osmar Hernandez, in the 1500 block of Huey P. Long (tee-hee).
Police say Osmar was nekkid from the waist down and holding his shorts in his hand.
When asked if he would kindly re-clothe himself, Osmar reportedly ignored their commands. Instead, police say, he began singing and squeezin’ – his pud, that is.
Got my fingers crossed that the dash-cam video of this particular incident finds it’s way to national television.
Gretna Assistant Police Chief Anthony Christiana said officers did not recognize the tune.
Osmar eventually redressed and was promptly carted off to jail. Officers noted he had trouble keeping his balance and smelled of alcohol.
I wish the arresting officers had been able to pick up the tune… the curiosity is killing me.…
According to police, James Masingill pleaded for his life as his girlfriend, 48-year-old Laura Morgan, used a crowbar to bludgeon him to death from her wheelchair. Afterwards, she took $200 from his wallet and went out to buy some crack.
When she returned home a couple hours later, she called 911 and told the dispatcher what she had done. Responding police would find Morgan in her wheelchair on the front porch of the home, and would locate Masingill’s body in the living room.
Morgan has been charged with first-degree murder and especially aggravated robbery. According to court records, Morgan has prior convictions for prostitution and drug possession.
Morgan and Masingill have been dating for 17 years and neighbors say that the victim was just trying to help Morgan turn her life around. Morgan’s family say that she was simply acting in self-defense.
“She told me they had been arguing and he came after her with a crowbar and swung at her and hit her in the hand with it and she was able to push him down and grab the crowbar, and that she hit him in the head and killed him,” Morgan’s niece, Carisa Holewinski says.…
Stetson Tedder, 26, was arrested Thursday on charges of second-degree assault of a child and unlawful imprisonment.
The injuries were discovered after the child’s grandmother, believing she had chicken pox, had her seen at the hospital. A registered nurse at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett counted more than 36 red marks over the girl’s body. After it was determined the child was not suffering from an illness, medical staff called 911.
The child reportedly told her grandmother Tedder tied her up and shot her with the pellet gun as punishment for waking him up.
For those of you unfamiliar with Airsoft guns, they fire plastic BBs made to sting but not break the skin.
Regardless, Tedder “knowingly inflicted bodily harm which by design caused pain as to the equivalent of that produced by torture,” Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies said.…
Nikki McNeil, 33, told authorities her ex-boyfriend and father of her three children, Lamark Tucker Sr., 36, became angry when she refused to discuss the status of their relationship while dropping off their children for visitation Saturday evening.
He grabbed her keys and cellphone, she said, in an attempt to keep her from leaving, but she was able to locate a spare key and started the car.
As she was backing out of the driveway, Tucker jumped on the hood and held tight for a good 10-miles or so, threatening her the entire time.
Fortunately, the children were not in the car.
Police say McNeil stopped the car at least two or three times as she was driving down the road with Tucker clinging to the car, asking people to call 911. Several motorists complied.
As she drove, she said she demanded Tucker get off the roof, but he refused and continued to yell at her.…
Diamond Lydia, 18, is facing charges after reportedly assaulting a female in the residence with a box of chicken, a pillow and his fists.
According to police, soon after the argument over the soda began, the 24-year-old victim went to her room. Diamond apparently followed and threw the box of chicken at her.
One witness told police Diamond started hitting the woman on the head with a pillow, and then climbed on top of her and started in with the punching. At that point, the victim grabbed a glass jar from her dresser and hit him on the head.
The witness apparently tried to break up the fight, and told Diamond to go downstairs. But as Diamond left the room, the witness said, he grabbed a tire iron and yelled, “I’m going to kill you!”
Diamond attempted to hit the woman with the tire iron, but the witness was able to step in and keep her from getting injured.…
Police responded to Rowley’s home after a neighbor called authorities to report what sounded like a boy being hit by a woman.
When police arrived at the home, they found the child sitting with his arms and legs around a porch support post with his hands and feet zip-tied together. Officers saw some blood on the boy’s hand and on the porch.
“The zip ties were too tight, and he was complaining,” said police spokesman Detective Steve Berry. “Through using scissors, or something like that, to cut them off, she managed to cut his finger as well. That didn’t apparently stop her from re-zip tying him to the pole.”
Rowley told the officers that while she was tying the kid up, he began complaining that the zip-tie was too tight. Compassionate woman that she is, she cut it off to relieve the pain, accidentally cutting his pinky finger in the process.…
Police were called to the Riverview apartments on a report of a fight that evening, and found the unidentified 44-year-old victim bleeding from a wound near his eye.
The man told police he and the suspect, 49-year-old Tammie Elaine Johnson, were at a neighbor’s home when an argument broke out. In addition to being upset she couldn’t get any money out of him to purchase crack, he said, “they were arguing because Tammie wanted to be with him but he was not interested in her.”
Johnson didn’t deny assaulting the man. In fact, she reportedly told police that after the neighbor had kicked ’em out and they decided to resolve their differences in the parking lot, she stopped by her own apartment real quick like and armed herself with olives. She said she did so because she knew she couldn’t take him.…
Arrested alongside Laird, because he watched the life-sized troll doll beat the woman and did jack shit, is 19-year-old Josiah Sklar.
There aren’t a lot of details at this point, but according to police, Linda Laird’s body was found at the bottom of a staircase in the living room sometime Tuesday. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office determined the cause of death was a homicide due to “blunt force trauma to the head and neck.”
Laird and Sklar had apparently left the residence right about the time the body was discovered.
Sklar was arrested at a nearby motel Wednesday morning. 56-year-old Linda Laird still showed signs of life after the beating, Sklar told police, but because he was scared of Laird, and because he wasn’t prepared to testify against him in court, he did nothing to help the woman.…
According to the police report, Valerie Nile was hanging out at her neighbor’s trailer, drinking, when the discussion took a turn for the dirty.
Two of the three needed for a threesome must have sobered up a bit because it didn’t happen.
This displeased Valerie. Police say it was then that she walked into the neighbor’s kitchen and armed herself with three knives – she slipped a large kitchen knife into her waistband, and stashed two smaller knives in her socks. Then, she apparently started yelling, threatening, terrorizing and stuff.
In fear for his life, the victim, 56-year-old Edward Sabatino, beat feet out of the trailer and called 911.
When officers arrived on scene, they found Sabatino’s female roommate, 30-year-old Shanna Chickering, snoozing on the couch. When questioned about the knives and the threats and the other craziness, she stated that she did not witness the incident because she was, like, asleep.…
While I don’t see a problem with that, really, the law doesn’t allow for those sort of shenanigans and the suspect, 42-year-old Tina Berryhill Rucker, was arrested.
According to the victim, Rucker got all choky and shit after he attempted to employ the “tuck and roll” maneuver so popular with blanket hogs.
He said Rucker “jumped on top of him and began to choke him.”
Signs of a struggle were apparently evident on the man’s neck – police say it appeared as if he had been choked. He was also sporting a few bloody scratches from Rucker’s fingernails.
Rucker, who police say was intoxicated and uncooperative at the time of her arrest, presumably due to the fact that she was friggin’ cold and tired, was booked into jail and charged with criminal domestic violence.
Personally, I think she went rather easy on him, considering… steal my covers and not only will I choke you into unconsciousness, I will cut you.…
“Yes, I killed her and then killed myself,” Harry Irwin reportedly asked paramedics. “Why am I awake?”
According to police, the couple’s daughter arrived at the home Wednesday morning and found the bloodied Mrs. in the bedroom, and a bloody and unconscious Harry sitting in his recliner with self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest.
Harry later told police that his wife Grace had been arguing and screaming all night and he just couldn’t take it anymore, so he finally just “did her in.” He said he tried to stab himself in the heart afterwards, but must have aimed too low and hit a rib instead.
Harry went on to say that he didn’t remember exactly how he killed her, he just knew that he did.
The couple’s daughter said Harry called her at about 6:30 that morning and requested that she come to the house at 9 a.m.…
Levittown, Philadelphia — On Monday, 35-year-old Melissa Ketunuti was found on fire in her basement. Her hands and feet had been bound there was a rope around her neck. An autopsy would show the pediatrician had been strangled to death.
Today, police have arrested Jason T. Smith, the exterminator the doctor had hired to take care of a rodent problem in her home that day, and have charged him with murder. Police zeroed in on Smith after his truck was captured on surveillance video near Ketunuti’s home.
After he was identified and picked up on Wednesday, Smith admitted to police that he “just snapped” after getting into an argument with Ketunuti and felt like she was disrespecting him and was making fun of him. He said after striking her, he got on top of her and began strangling her.
Once she was dead, Smith says he panicked and tried to cover up the crime by dousing Ketunuti’s body with accelerant and setting her on fire. Smith has been charged with murder, abuse of a corpse, risking arson, and risking a catastrophe.…
Orlando, FL — A man in Florida has been arrested after police say he assaulted his fiancee and tried forcing her engagement ring down her throat.
On Sunday, police responded to a Florida Walmart after a woman there called to report she had been physically assaulted by her boyfriend of four years.
The woman told police that her boyfriend, 29-year-old Faron Thompson, got into an argument after she informed him she wanted to move out. In response, Thompson allegedly grabbed his girlfriend’s engagement ring and tried shoving it down her throat.
She also said that he shoved her against a wall as she held their 1-year-old baby and covered her face with his hands to keep her from breathing. When he threatened to burn down the house, she called him a psycho and he shoved her and their baby out the front door. That’s when she called police and arranged to meet a deputy at a nearby Walmart.
Police located Thompson and charged him with battery via strangulation and child neglect.…
