In The Mean Time...
Weleetka, OK– Three years ago, we posted an article about 13-year-old Taylor Dawn Paschal-Placker and her best friend, 11-year-old Skyla Jade Whitaker. The two girls were walking down a dirt road in Weleetka, Oklahoma when they were gunned down in cold blood. Yesterday police announced they had finally apprehended they feel is person responsible, 25-year-old Kevin Sweat.
We’ve had a couple stories on the site that have always stuck out for me, and this was definitely one of them. For those of you who are not aware of this story, Skyla had spent the night at Taylor’s house and on the afternoon of June 8, 2008, the pair headed to Bad Creek Bridge, where they planned to collect shells and pebbles from the riverbank. When they did not return home , and Taylor would not answer her cell phone, Taylor’s grandfather went looking for them. He didn’t have to look for long.
Lying side-by-side in a ditch a quarter mile from the Taylor’s home were the bodies of the two girls.…Continue Reading
A toxicology report found the drugs inside the 235 pound, 6 foot tall body of 32 year-old Chad Brothers. The drugs are blamed for the state of ‘excited delirium‘ that led to his death. Based on my medical expertise, I’d say that it looks something like this.
Early on October 31st, Brothers was at the gym ‘lifting zing ups and putting zem down’ when he lost his goddamn mind. During the super-sized temper tantrum, Brothers apparently toppled weights, started winging dumbbells and punched another patron.
Police, attempting to subdue the man-beast, employed tasers several times with little effect. It even appears that Brothers may have tased himself during the confrontation. Whether or not that was intentional is unknown, but let’s all give him a big ‘Like a Boss!‘ and a round of applause anyway and pretend it was.…Continue Reading
San Tan Valley, AZ — A man who had hoped to teach his girlfriend’s daughter a lesson about sexting is now facing charges after allegedly forwarding a nudie pic found on the teen’s phone to everyone on her contact list.
Investigators say the teen’s mother, along with her boyfriend, 31-year-old Eugene Foster, found a nude picture of the teen on her cellphone and decided to teach her a thing or two about embarrassment and humiliation.
“They get into a fight and during that discussion [the] boyfriend decides I’m going to teach you a lesson I’m going to send this out to 30 plus contacts on her phone and that’s what he did,” says Elias Johnson, spokesperson for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. “You can’t distribute images like that, no one can, its illegal… there was nudity, clear full frontal picture.”
When officials at the girl’s school learned of the alleged incident, they scrambled to inform parents that their child may have received a pornographic picture via picture message, and asked that they delete the text if they or their children received it.…Continue Reading
Virginia Beach, VA – A selfless Virginia restaurateur, who reportedly took it upon himself to establish a personal college scholarship program to aid women in need, has pleaded guilty to sexual battery for… well… administering it.
Court testimony said that Henry Allen Fitzsimmons, 54, called his program the ‘Spencer Scholarship Program.’ It reportedly offered participants a chance ‘to go to college and better their lives.’ Court documents said that, sadly, none of the several women in the Spencer Scholarship Program ever began their college studies – as Fitzsimmons had deemed that they ‘were not yet ready.’ Five women filed criminal complaints against Fitzsimmons in April, saying – in effect – that the beatings from the Spencer Scholarship Program had left them with bruises and welts on their asses.
The women testified they were cash-strapped when they signed on to Fitzsimmons’ scholarship program. At the time of their “acceptance” into the scholarship program, the women were reportedly told that the program did not allow drinking alcohol and required the participants to phone Fitzsimmons.…Continue Reading
Tulsa, OK– A woman too broke to purchase the ingredients necessary to whip up a batch of meth is accused of swiping the items from the shelves at Walmart and setting up a mini-lab right inside the store.
Store surveillance video reportedly captured 45-year-old Elizabeth Alisha Halfmoon walking into the store at about noon on Thursday. For the next six hours or so, Halfmoon wandered through the store collecting the items on her shopping list.
It took a minute, but security personnel eventually figured the woman was up to something stupid and put in a call to the police.
Halfmoon was half-way to completion by the time police arrived. Deputies made contact with the woman just moments after she had mixed two bottles of sulfuric acid and starter fluid.
“When firefighters were on the scene she made statements to them that is what she was doing, she was attempting to obtain these chemicals and was in the process of trying to manufacture meth,” said Officer David Shelby. “However, she said she was not very good at it.”
Stoopid tweeker forgot to swipe the most important ingredient – pseudoephedrine.…Continue Reading
LONG BEACH, Calif. — A poor woman in California met a horrifying end when she was crushed by an elevator after it became stuck between floors and she tried to climb out.
Annette Lujan, 48, was inside an elevator at Cal State Long Beach when it became stuck somewhere near the third floor. She had already alerted others that she was trapped inside and fire crews were on their way to assist her. But Lujan decided to take matters into her own hands and asked someone who was there to help her climb out.
Lujan had gotten about halfway out of the elevator when, like a horror movie, the damn thing decided this was the perfect time not to be stuck any longer. The 2000-pound elevator moved and Lujan was crushed between the floor of the elevator and the shaft.
We posted a similar story a couple years ago in which the drummer for the band Maserati, Gerhardt Fuchs, died after trying to jump out of an elevator stuck between floors.…Continue Reading
Westlake, LA — Twenty-eight-year-old bible school teacher/hottie Heather N. Daughdrill has found herself on the business end of the Louisiana justice system having been arrested for inappropriate sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy.
It was reported that text messages discovered by the 13-year-old boy’s parents prompted a call to authorities in early November. The subsequent investigation determined that Daughdrill had ‘inappropriate sexual contact’ with the boy on ‘multiple occasions between June and October’ after ‘picking him up from school without the parents’ knowledge.’
Daughdrill reportedly met the boy while she was working as a teacher/aide at a Summer Bible school camp the boy had attended.
“So when Corinthians talks about people who won’t inherit the Kingdom of God, it is talking about people who do that stuff that we just did, right?”
Daughdrill was arrested on November 28 and charged with 4 counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile; 8 counts of sexual battery; 3 counts of 2nd degree kidnapping; 1 count contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile; and 1 count indecent behavior with a juvenile.…Continue Reading
Obion County, TN — Vicky Bell called 911 when a fire started in the trailer she shared with her boyfriend, but it didn’t lead to much. Because Bell and her boyfriend had not paid a fire protection fee, firefighters were not going to put it out. So, instead, the mobile home burned to the ground.
The nearby city is South Fulton. City residents automatically have fire protection but rural residents do not. They have to pay a $75 fure protection fee that is referred to as “pay for spray.” The mayor says it comes down to simple business. If they don’t collect fire fees, the fire department can’t survive and if they make exceptions to the rule, no one will ever pay the fee. South Fulton made the news last year for a similar incident.
“There’s no way to go to every fire and keep up the manpower, the equipment, and just the funding for the fire department,” Mayor David Crocker said.
But it was reported that the firefighters did go to the fire.…Continue Reading
Police responded to the family’s home on November 22, where they made contact with pair’s 42-year-old mother. The woman, bloodied, swollen and bruised, told deputies the proverbial shit hit the fan soon after she threw out several cans of Bud Light she had found in her refrigerator. She tossed the beer, she said, because her daughter, 20-year-old Brittany Ferguson, was not of legal drinking age. This apparently angered Brittany and her brother, 18-year-old Lindell Ferguson, and the two jumped their mother and an unidentified 47-year-old male who also lived in the home.
Neither adult suffered serious injuries, and neither required hospitalization.
Brittany and Lindell fled the scene shortly after the beating, but were arrested five days later. Both remain behind bars in lieu of $10,000 bail.
Should’a kept the beer and tossed the kids……Continue Reading
Police responded to the woman’s home after an unidentified party reported the alleged abuse to Child Protective Services.
When questioned, Avila reportedly told police she bit the child’s cheek and finger last week, leaving behind bruises and bite marks, because she was trying to discipline the kid.
Seriously, this site is just brimming with helpful parenting tips! Now I know what to do if my spawn’s grades slip again.
Avila was booked on a charge of injury to a child and later released on $5,000 bail.…Continue Reading
Canton, GA – Police have arrested 20-year-old Ryan Brunn in connection to the vicious sexual assault and murder of 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera whose body was found discarded in a dumpster.
Rivera was last seen alive on Friday playing with other children at the River Ridge apartments. She vanished after telling friends she was going inside to get drinks. After a massive search, her body was found in a dumpster on Monday.
Autopsy results showed the girl was killed a short time after she had gone missing and had died from blows to the head and stab wounds. She had also been sexually assaulted before her body was tossed in the dumpster.
Brunn is a recently hired maintenance worker at the apartment complex, fitting in with the police’s initial theory that the person responsible for the girl’s death lived in the complex or had access to vacant apartments.
“We are confident that Brunn is the killer,” GBI Director Vernon Keenan said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon, about an hour after Brunn’s arrest.…Continue Reading
Jacksonville, FL – A woman in South Carolina has been accused of murdering a woman in Florida and then hiding her body under some Christmas presents.
Michelle O’Dowd, 67, was discovered by her twin brother after he went to her home to check on her after she failed to show up for work. He said that the door was open and the house had been ransacked, however her car and her pets where still there.
There was also a foot sticking out of a pile of Christmas gifts. Underneath the gifts, like some kind of macabre present, was his dead sister whose bloody face covered by a towel. She had been beaten and strangled.
It wasn’t long before police had arrested a friend of the family, 40-year-old Patty Michelle White. O’Dowd’s brother said that White was an ex-girlfriend of the victim’s nephew. He said O’Down would help White, who he said could never get her life together, by letting her stay at her place or paying her for odd jobs.…Continue Reading
San Antonio, TX – A little late getting this one posted as my site wants to be an ass today, but the two kids who were shot by their mother during a standoff at a Texas welfare office are still alive today.
As most of you heard by now, 38-year-old Rachelle Grimmer entered the welfare office Monday afternoon with her two children, 12-year-old Ramie Grimmer and her 10-year-old brother, Timothy Grimmer. She was really pissed off about a whole lot of stuff, including the fact that she had been denied food stamps.
A supervisor took her into a private room so that they could discuss her case, and that’s when Grimmer pulled out a handgun and started an hours long standoff with police. The supervisor convinced Grimmer to let the other employees go, which she did, and stayed with Grimmer. Police tried to negotiate with Grimmer over the phone, but she kept hanging up, eventually letting the supervisor go unharmed at around 7:45 p.m.
Grimmer stayed inside the office with her children for a few more hours until around 11:45 p.m.…Continue Reading
PUEBLO, Colo. – A woman in Colorado is in the hospital recovering after a pair of pit bulls gave her a haircut.
The 60-year-old woman walking down the road Monday morning when she passed a house where two pit bulls resided. The two dogs chased after the woman after the male dog broke from his chain and the female escaped from her pen.
The woman was dragged for 15 feet by her hair and in the process of being mauled to death when a delivery driver showed up and stopped the attack. When the ambulance arrived, they found the woman’s scalp had become completely detached, and was lying on the ground. She was airlifted to the hospital along with her new wig where she’ll undergo several surgeries to repair the damage done to her head.
Police found the two dogs by following their footprints and had to use their mace when the dogs turned on them. The owner of the animals, Paul Rodriguez, was issued a summons and complaint for two counts of unlawful ownership of a dangerous dog.…Continue Reading
According to court document, 27-year-old Harry E. Klages II had a party at his apartment in Massena, New York in January 2008. Andrew W. Lesperance, 51, attended the party and reportedly only met Klages earlier that night. Police were called after Klages phoned his father to say he had done something “he wasn’t very proud of.”
Responding police would find Lesperance with one eyeball gouged out, the other eyeball sliced, his abdomen cut, his leg nearly severed below his hip, and having had his genitals cut off. All of this courtesy of Klages, who was reported to be intoxicated, high, and ‘possibly using other drugs.’
Klages would later claim that he attacked Lesperance in response to ‘sexual misconduct,’ but prosecutors called “bullshit.” Klages – who was on probation at the time of the attack – would accept a plea deal in 2009 that resulted in a sentence of 38 years in prison.…Continue Reading
GASTON COUNTY, N.C. — I don’t know if any of you have been following this story out of my state, but a 9-year-old student at Brookside Elementary called a teacher “fine” and the ensuing knee-jerking it caused has been unbelievable.
First the school suspended Emanyea for sexual harassment. They said they have had issues with the boy calling students bad names before, a claim Emanyea denied to reporters, and that he made the statement about the teacher in a suggestive manner. Emanyea was suspended for three days and served a one-day, in-school suspension and two days out of school.
Understandably, his mother wasn’t happy about the school’s decision to suspend her son for sexual harassment, so she went to the local news. It wasn’t long before sites like CNN and Huffington Post picked up the story and it quickly went viral. Not long after that, all the negative attention had the school district getting involved and then release a statement yesterday that apologized to the family.
“”After a thorough investigation by school officials involving the suspension of a fourth grade student at one of our elementary schools, it has been determined there was no sexual harassment.…Continue Reading
DALLAS, Texas - A Texas fashion model is recovering in the hospital after the airplane propeller she walked into sliced off her hand and caused injuries to her shoulder, head and brain.
Lauren Scruggs, 23, works as the editor of LoLoMag.com and had just exited a small airplane Saturday night after getting an aerial view of Christmas lights when she somehow walked into the single engine’s propeller.
Scruggs is in stable condition at Parkland Memorial Hospital where she has already underwent facial and shoulder reconstruction surgeries. Her family says she still has to undergo further surgery and are concerned about the injuries to her left eye and brain.
“They’re telling us it’s going to be a long recovery,” Jeff Scruggs said. “Obviously she’s had a lot of trauma to her head, and she lost her left hand and her left eye is questionable. We’re praying she’ll regain her sight.”
Investigators are not sure how the communications major walked into the propeller, but her family thinks she was turning to thank the pilot and walked right into it.…Continue Reading
The body of 2 year-old Tierra Morgan-Glover, who prosecutors say was “awake, alert, and helpless” when her dad put her in the creek, was found partially submerged the next day by children playing nearby.
Morgan had picked up the girl from her mother to take her to a movie. When he did not return for a few hours, Imani Benton called police. By that time, Morgan had already left the park where the creek was. According to the prosecutor, Morgan went from the park to a friend’s house. There, he had a few drinks, gave away his car and some other belongings, and headed for a nearby train station.
He was arrested a week later, mere miles from the Mexican border in California. On Monday he stood in court, stone-faced and calm, answering to the charge of murder.…Continue Reading
