In The Mean Time...
Smith was golfing as part of a foursome at the Denison Country Club on Tuesday at about 4pm, Sheriff’s Sgt. Rickey Wheeler said Wednesday. At the 3rd hole, a fellow golfer, Jim Steward, said Smith’s dog Marty jumped out of the cart and ran to an adjacent home with two dogs.
Steward said then he heard what sounded like a firecracker and he turned to see McInchak with a gun in his hand. An injured and bloodied Marty came running back to the cart.
Steward said that after the first shot McInchak yelled, “Keep your dog off my property,” at which point Smith started walking toward him. According to Steward, Smith said as he approached, “If you’re gonna shoot my dog, shoot me.” Steward added, “And the guy shot him. I mean bam. He didn’t hesitate.”
Smith collapsed and didn’t get up. Deputies who arrived found Smith in McInchak’s back yard and McInchak standing on his patio about 25 yards away.…Continue Reading
Early Sunday morning, Raymond Mitchell, 34, is said to have stopped at a south London McDonald’s to buy a hot chocolate. While waiting in line, a fight reportedly broke out between two other men who were also in the line. Witnesses say Mitchell intervened to stop the fight. His intervention was not well received.
According to witness accounts, one of the men announced loudly, “You are gonna die tonight, you are not gonna see the morning.” That man is then said to have phoned someone asking him to bring a gun by yelling, “Bring me that thing.”
Mitchell was chased from the McDonald’s into a nearby cul-de-sac. According to the police account, the gun was delivered and Mitchell was beaten and pistol-whipped. Mitchell was then shot three times – including shots to the groin and liver. He was taken to hospital but died hours later.…Continue Reading
Trenton, NJ — The dog pictured is a Maltese/Yorkie mix puppy. As is well known, Maltese/Yorkies were originally bred by the warriors of Sparta for their utter depravity and blood lust. Particularly vicious when young, the puppies were used later as guard dogs in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany and Bosnia-Herzegovina. It is said that they can smell both blood and fear.
Knowing this animal to be the satan-incarnate that it is makes more understandable the allegations that Tiraya Green’s teenage neighbor beat her Maltese/Yorkie mix puppy to death.
According to Green, 9-month old “Thunda,” a Maltese/Yorkie mix like that shown, got away from her on his leash and ran toward a teenage neighbor boy while walking home a couple weekends ago.
“He ran away and up to the neighbor,” said Green. “I yelled before the dog got to the neighbor, but the puppy was just playing.”
It was at that point, according to Green, that the teenager summoned the courage of greek gods to beat the Maltese/Yorkie devil-spawn to death with a shovel.…Continue Reading
St. Paul, MN — The jury that convicted Luke Brandon Scott, 29, on two counts of assault, making terroristic threats and false imprisonment decided Tuesday that there were aggravating factors involved in the crimes.
The charges for which Scott was found guilty resulted from his mistreatment of Caitlin Hodges the night of Sept. 26 and early Sept. 27. He was charged with two counts of kidnapping but was found not guilty of those charges.
Luke Brandon Scott, 29, offered no visible reaction as the convictions were read.
During closing arguments, prosecuting attorney Janice Barker said Hodges told Scott she no longer wanted to be intimate with him. Scott got angry and refused to let her leave his house, Barker said.
Hodges testified at trial that Scott smashed her teeth with a wine bottle, beat her, pointed a pellet gun at her head, threatened her with a knife and locked her in a dog kennel. Barker also described how Scott made her mop up spilled beer with her hair, dragged her by the hair, wrapped his arm around her throat, kicked her, hit her with a riding crop, and threw his own dog against a refrigerator.…Continue Reading
Sacramento, CA – Dunno if any of you remember the story we posted about back in February regarding some mourners attacking a Fox40 news crew, but there has been an update to the story. No charges will be filed.
Back in February, FOX40 reporter John Lobertini and photographer Rebecca Little, were with other news crews at an IHOP parking lot were 27-year-old Chester Jackson had been shot to death earlier that day. Lobertini and Little got into a confrontation with friends and family of the victim who had gathered there when they began trying to interview some of them.
Video shows the father of the victim, 57-year-old Chester Jackson III, pushing Little’s camera away before a woman pulls Little to the ground. Jacqueline Jackson, the sister of the victim, then kicks Little while she’s on the ground, and Chester Jackson throws a punch at Lobertini.
The DA’s office stated their decision not to press charges against Jackson were because “his actions do not rise to the level of a prosecutable case for assault or battery and certainly not attempted robbery.” Fair enough.…Continue Reading
TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES, N.M. – A 48-year-old woman was mauled to death by four pit bulls while she took a walk on Sunday.
Witnesses say that Margaret Salcedo tried using her cell phone as the dogs began attacking her, but one of the pits grabbed her arm and she dropped it. For the next three minutes, the four dogs bit her all over her body. A man in a car tried to help Salcedo, but remained in his vehicle when the dogs attacked him as well.
When police arrived, they had to shoot and kill one of the dogs when it charged at him, but the other three ran off. They were later rounded up and taken to the animal shelter. Salcedo was conscious at the scene, but her injuries were too severe and she would later die at the hospital.
The four dogs belonged to John and Maria Hardiman, and reportedly escaped from the home’s fenced-in backyard. The DA will decide if charges will be filed against the dog’s owners.…Continue Reading
Dallas, Texas – Police in Dallas caught a man in the act as he was raping a woman under a freeway overpass last night.
Around 11:45 pm, a homeless man witnessed an assault an ran to a nearby building to call police. When police arrived the witness led them to a grassy area beneath the Central Expressway ramp to Live Oak Street. It was there that police found another homeless man, 51-year-old Wendell Walker, on top of a 58-year-old woman who was screaming and trying to fight the rapist off.
As officers struggled to gain custody of the man, his pants vanished. Looking at the photo, they were not recovered before cameras snapped his arrest photo. Walker now faces aggravated sexual assault charges. The victim, who once had a relationship with Walker and lived with him under the bridge, was taken to Parkland Hospital in good condition.
A man and his wife were awakened by the sounds of someone busting through their back door on an early morning last March. the man ran to find out what was happening and was greeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials pointing guns at him and throwing him down the stairs.
They explained that he was a pedophile and had been sharing images online depicting children involved in sex acts. They had proof that child pornography had originated from the homeowner’s router via IP address. The man’s ISP then gave the agents his name and address based of of that info and now here they were sharing a pleasant Monday morning together.
The man denied being involved with any form of child porn, a reply I’m sure most ICE officials here everytime they go on one of these calls. He explained he had given up trying to password protect Wi-Fi after getting a new wireless router, and that someone must have leeched off him.…Continue Reading
Minneapolis, MN – A 29-year-old man has been charged with murder after allegedly driving onto a sidewalk and intentionally hitting a group of people he had argued with earlier. One man was killed and two others injured.
Timothy Ayman Bakdash had been drinking at the Library Bar when he got into an argument with 23-year-old Ben Van Handel and two other women around 2 a.m. on April 15. The dispute continued outside at which time Bakdash got behind the wheel of his car, went the wrong way on a one-way street and intentionally drove onto the sidewalk in hopes of hitting Handel and the two women.
One witness stated after Handel was struck, Bakdash continued driving down the sidewalk for about 50 feet with Van Handel on the hood. Handel tumbled into the air and into an intersection after his head struck a utility pole. The other two women who were struck, 21-year-old Sarah Anne Bagley and 21-year-old Katelynn Marie Hanson, are recovering from their injuries, Bagley currently unable to walk because of a serious injury to her left leg.…Continue Reading
Baltimore, MD – Bond has been denied for Teonna Monae Brown, one of the two teens charged with beating Chrissy Lee Polis in a Baltimore McDonald’s.
The attack was filmed by a McDonald’s employee who has since been fired, but not before he posted the video on his Facebook and found out the hard way that most of society did not find the act as hilarious as he did and do not condone the actions of Brown and her 14-year-old friend.
I don’t normally like to post about the same story in one week, but more information has been released regarding this incident, including Brown’s name, mugshot and the charges against her that include three first and second-degree assault charges.
The other bit of info comes from The Smoking Gun who uncovered that Brown was arrested for assaulting a woman last year, in the exact same restaurant. After watching Brown’s activities in the videotaped assault of Chrissy Polis, that doesn’t surprise me in the least.
Also revealed is the older woman who tries to step in and help Polis.…Continue Reading
Sanford, FL – Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying the slob pictured to the left. You see, the police would like to talk to said slob about a recent incident involving his urine and 100+ packages of cough drops.
Police say the man entered a Walgreens late Thursday night and headed directly to the aisle where the cough drops are kept. As is apparent in the attached video, the nasty pig glances around, unzips his fly and pisses on about 110 packages of cough drops.
Police say the man then walked back to the pharmacy and tried to have a prescription filled but didn’t have the proper documents. Denied, he and his empty bladder then exited the store.
Police were called after an employee stocking shelves in that particular aisle smelled urine and discovered the puddle. The estimated damage to the cough drops is about $300.
“He went to the pharmacy and tries to get a prescription but doesn’t have the right paperwork. That’s OK, at times you won’t have the right things, but he does not appear to be drunk or intoxicated,” said Sgt.…Continue Reading
Orlando, FL — Police arrested 30-year-old Donald Destin early Monday morning after the man reportedly broke into a Christian radio station and exposed himself before threatening to rape and rob the female host.
Police say the DJ at VOIX 98.9 was broadcasting a live prayer show at about 6:00 a.m. when Destin entered the studio uninvited, exposed himself and threatened to get rapey. A listener heard the threat and called 911.
“The microphone was on … they heard about everything,” said station manager Gary Pierre. “She left the microphone on and said, ‘Don’t kill me, let me give you money, don’t make sex with me.’ The guy came for two things: sex and money.”
Police say the woman remained calm and convinced Destin to follow her outside. Once outside, the woman locked herself in her vehicle and remained there until deputies arrived. At that point, Destin reportedly walked back into the station and stole several items from the woman’s purse before fleeing on foot. The entire incident was captured on surveillance video.…Continue Reading
CONWAY, N.H. – Police to execute two search warrants in relation to the disappearance of 20-year-old Krista Dittmeyer, the mother who was reported missing after her car was found abandoned with her infant daughter inside.
Someone noticed her car on Saturday, sitting in the Cranmore Mountain ski area parking lot for several hours with its engine running and hazard lights flashing. Police would find Dittmeyer’s daughter in the back seat, alive and unharmed.
Dittmeyer was nowhere to be found and at the time I type this, that still seems to be the case. Police have come out and stated that they feel she has been the victim of a crime, mainly because nothing points to Dittmeyer leaving behind her car and child by choice.
“There is nothing we’ve uncovered to indicate that she voluntarily absented herself from the vehicle or the child,” Lt. Chris Perley said. “People have asked about suicide or mental illness, but there’s nothing to indicate either of those things.”
Her family agrees, stating she would never leave her daughter in her car by herself unless she was forced to.…Continue Reading
Gary, Indiana – If you are responsible for leaving two bodies in a 15-foot high pile of horse manure at an Indiana horse farm, police would like to talk with you.
A man was boarding his horse at the farm Sunday morning when he notice what he thought was an arm sticking out of the manure pile that has collected on the farm for a couple years. When police arrived and began removing the body from the pile, they found a second one. Both bodies, one of them being reported as a white male, were wrapped in plastic.
The second body has not been identified as at the time of the reports, it had not been removed from the plastic. They were waiting for today so that the coroner could perform an autopsy as soon as the plastic was removed. They also found some bones in the pile, but they turned out to belong to horses.
Police are asking that anyone missing anyone, or with any information as to how these bodies got to where they were found, to contact Gary police Detective Mike Barnes at (219) 881-7434.…Continue Reading
I stopped doing television reviews a while back for no other reason than I wasn’t watching any. At least, none that were remotely relevant to the site. But I am now four episodes in to AMC’s THE KILLING, an American remake of the Danish television series, FORBRYDELSEN, that I figured I may start posting my thoughts on the episodes. Starting with last night’s.
For those of you unfamiliar with the show’s premise, it deals with the investigation into the murder of Rosie Larsen, a high-school student found in the trunk of a car pulled from a remote pond. Each of the thirteen episodes represents one day in the life of the two detectives in charge of the case, the friends and family of the deceased and all the red herrings in between. Filling in the gaps is a bit of a WEST WING political plot-line that will undoubtedly become more relevant to Rosie’s murder — especially considering the car she was found in belonged to the campaign of Darren Richmond, a politician running for mayor of Seattle.…Continue Reading
As for the actual podcast, Imp and myself (Jaded was out getting drunk and eating too much BBQ shrimp) discussed media bias (again) in regards to missing persons cases that was once again made apparant with the news of Phylicia Barnes’ body being found. We also discuss the latest depressing news on Rowan Ford as well as the beatdown of a transgender woman at the hands of two teen girls in a Baltimore McDonald’s.
We even get some surprise mail from Jaded’s biggest fan, Jane Importante. If you listened in on the podcast last night, you heard the message. But if you check out some of the stuff me and Imp talked about after we went off the air, you can also hear Jane’s response that can only be summed up with o_O.
This episode has more foul language than usual as we do talk about the guy who had sex with a bus seat which lead to all the other stories regarding guys and what they will stick their dicks in…like dogs, patio furniture and dead deer.…Continue Reading
Lodi, CA – Have you ever had one of those nights? You know, the kind where you find yourself in a graveyard in the middle of the night, half-nekkid with hair accessories attached to your genitals? No? Erm…me neither. Shawn Batie might know what I’m talking about though…
Police had reason to believe Mr. Batie was under the influence of methamphetamines when he was found wandering around outside a cemetery late Thursday night, waving a flashlight around and talking to himself. If the jittering and dilated pupils didn’t give him away, his wardrobe choice certainly did.
Police say Batie was wearing a Raiders jersey, a lacy g-string and socks. (Whether the socks were knee-high, mid-calf or low cut is unclear at this point, but I’m picturing black mid-calf ’cause it’s way funnier). And to complete the look, a hair scrunchie on the peener. Way to accessorize!
Taken into custody on suspicion of being under the influence, Batie was transported to the pokey and dumped in a holding cell. It was there that he apparently attempted to wow the officers with his mad poo-painting skills.…Continue Reading
New Castle, PA — Police have accused a 12-year-old boy of trading marijuana for candy outside his school. According to police, classmates became aware of the transactions last Tuesday and alerted a teacher at the George Washington Intermediate School. The teacher then alerted administrators.
Police reports say the young entrepreneur told his principal he took the marijuana from his stepfather’s freezer. The stepfather has been identified as Michael Quinn Jr.
The boy reportedly elaborated saying that he has, on several occassions, exchanged drugs with a 20-year-old man for candy and other items. “He said he would trade the drugs for candy, and he did this several times…” said New Castle Police Chief Tom Sansone. When those exchanges happened and the identity of the 20-year-old man has not yet been reported.
When the New Castle Narcotics Bureau and the Lawrence County Drug Task Force searched the stepfather’s apartment, they found six bags of marijuana in a freezer and a digital scale.
Quinn faces drug charges of possession with the intent to deliver and possession of a controlled substance.…Continue Reading
Fort Mill, SC — Surveillance video of two men dressed in women’s clothing who stole from a truck stop last week has been released by South Carolina police. Love’s Truck Stop in Fort Mill was the scene of this cunning crime.
An employee told police that one of the men distracted him by making a purchase using a credit card that wouldn’t process. While distracted, a second man was reportedly spiriting away vehicle electronics. Police said that before this daring ruse was over, the second man would walk out of the truck stop with a GPS unit and a combination television/DVD player.
Police are asking the public’s help in their apprehension.
While the employee blamed the distraction on credit card processing, it is understandable if he was unable to resist the mesmorizing beauty and fetching glances from these enchantresses. The employee provided detailed descriptions of the two men to police.
The first man was wearing a delightful teal and white dress – the white top being almost diaphanous in texture and the dress portion flowing in a nod to the spring weather of the Carolinas.…Continue Reading
Phelps County, Missouri - The rape and murder trial of Chris Collings, 35, was set to start on Monday. Instead, Phelps County Judge Mary Sheffield declared a mistrial this morning because Collings’ prosecution and defense were unable to come up with a jury, even on a change of venue from Barry County and a two-year delay. Join me in a chorus of ” THIS FRIGGING SUCKS” by Imp and the Dammit Dammits, won’t you?
We first reported on Rowan Ford over three years ago. Rowan Ford was nine years old in November 2007. She was an elfin little girl, sweet-natured despite her repeated bouts of head lice and general air of neglect. Rowan often slept in the back of her mother’s car while Colleen Spears worked the overnight shift at Wal-Mart. Rowan slept there when the weather was good because she was afraid of her stepfather, David Spears. The extent of Rowan’s fear was sadly proven correct when her battered, raped body was found bloody and strangled in a small cave a week after her disappearance.…Continue Reading
