In The Mean Time...
Orlando, FL – Vanessa Olmos, 35, born a male named Christopher in Mexico, was arrested on July 4th for touching the genitals of a 14-year-old boy who was alone in a Days Inn motel room.
The police report indicates that Olmos, who was working at the motel as a housekeeper, knocked on the door of a room where the unnamed 14-year-old was staying. The boy, whose mother was at the front desk, reportedly let Olmos into the room, at which point Olmos asked him if he had any dirty towels, and if he was alone.
He/she then allegedly asked, “Can I touch?” The boy, somewhat confused, asked, “Touch what?” Bad question.
Olmos, clearly a man/woman of action above words, allegedly reached out and grabbed the boy’s genitals, saying, “You hot.” The astute young man responded, “You’re weird,” and walked to the bathroom to wait for Olmos and her randy johnson to leave.
When the boy’s mother returned, he told her what had happened and she called the police, telling them that she had already swapped their dirty towels for clean ones earlier in the morning, intimating that Olmos had knocked on the door under a false pretense.…
WINTER HAVEN, FL – A Polk County man was arrested over the weekend after allegedly accosting three women with a 4-foot-long sword and a peanut butter sandwich.
The melee reportedly began when Mark Miller, 50, was disturbed by noise the women were making outside of his mobile home. Miller is said to have exited his trailer angrily, brandishing the blade and his late night snack. At some point during the scuffle that ensued, according to responding officers, Miller jabbed the more dangerous and metallic weapon at a woman’s stomach, one Brandi Bodiford, who happened to be 6 months pregnant.
Fortunately for Bodiford and her unborn child, she was able to grab the blade before being skewered and her friend, Taylor Grimes, stepped between her and Miller. Miller then smeared his remaining weapon, the peanut butter sandwich, on the chest of the third woman, Cierra Harwell.
Deputies arrived to detain and transport Miller to Polk County Jail, but before the trip was completed Miller used his teeth to cause $550 worth of damage to the padding on the squad car’s cage partition.…
Fort Pierce, FL – Robert Casey, 49, was arrested on Monday after a tow truck driver called police to report a naked, masturbating man driving a Jeep Cherokee on Interstate 95.
We east-coasters know 95 as one of the most frustrating interstates in the country. I believe Casey may have been merely attempting to alleviate some of that frustration by abusing his manhood to completion. Unfortunately for him, he pulled up along-side a tow truck driver who didn’t appreciate his relaxation methods. “The male’s hands were in his groin area moving around,” the police report said.
But, in keeping with I-95’s propensity for moving along swimmingly and then coming to a screeching halt for no apparent reason, police located the Cherokee and put Casey’s five-finger knuckle-shuffle to an abrupt end. It took him a little while longer than most to stop the car since he was attempting to get dressed as he did so.
When the officer asked him why he was driving naked, “Casey stated that he has problems with this and he is getting therapy,” the report said, adding that the man couldn’t explain why he was naked. …
Portland, Ore. — A registered sex offender was arrested the other day after he tried to sexually assault a 10-year-old boy in a Wendy’s bathroom and stabbed the child several times when he fought back.
Police say on Sunday, 49-year-old Adam Lee Brown stood outside a Wendy’s bathroom door and forced a 10-year-old boy inside. After locking the door behind him, Brown allegedly attempted to sexually assault the boy. When the boy fought back, Brown stabbed him several times with a knife.
Before I go on, here’s a little background on Brown.
He’s a registered sex offender who served 11 years in prison for molesting at least nine children in 1992. The HIV-positive preacher’s son would force his victims into silence by threatening them with knives, scissors and matches. In some cases he would rely on the oldest trick in the book by warning them that Satan would come if they didn’t do what he wanted.
In 1993, Brown was convicted of three counts of first-degree sodomy after pleading no contest to lesser charges–prosecutors tried to charge him with murder because he knew he was possibly infecting children with HIV. …
Fort Pierce, FL – A woman’s call to police on June 25th, complaining of her male roommate’s habit of bringing various women into their home, resulted in the arrest of three individuals on prostitution charges.
An officer responding to a Fort Pierce home found George Leroy Marshall, 71, sitting in a blue Lincoln Town Car. When he asked Marshall what he was doing there, he reportedly said that he had brought his niece to the house so she could speak with her ex-husband. The cop then knocked on the door and says he waited for about three minutes for someone to open it, at which point 27-year-old Crystal Lynn Morine and a man claiming to be Ignacio Diaz, 49, appeared. Morine was adjusting her wardrobe and “Diaz” had his fly down, the police report claims.
“Diaz” had a different story, saying that Morine was a “friend” of his who would stop by on occasion. The officer then asked the couple if they’d been having sex when he knocked on the door. …
Las Vegas, NV – Elizabeth DeMaria, 46, jumped to her death from the 35 story window of the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas on June 26th, just as criminal investigators were entering her room to arrest her.
DeMaria, who was arrested on eleven counts each of theft and fraud in 2010, failed to show up for her court-mandated status check on May 10th; the same day she began renting a room at the MGM Grand using the name Lisa Victoria. She had been accused of collecting $200,000 from nine investors for a fictional media company called “The Vegas Channel.” She is believed to have spent that money on luxury items for herself.
It took investigators over a month to track her down. When they eventually did, they knocked on the door and announced their intent to serve a bench warrant for her failure to appear on May 10th. They heard a female voice inside, but no one was answering the door. They then forced entry into the room to witness DeMaria tossing a laptop computer off the balcony. …
Police were dispatched to U.S. 176 in East Flat Rock Friday night after a call was made to 911 regarding the body of a man found on the side of the road. Police were able to identify the man as 45-year-old Roger Moody and concluded he had been a victim of a hit-and-run.
When investigators went to his home to notify his next of kin, they found Bishop there along with the Honda Accord she had been driving earlier that night. Police examined the vehicle and were able to determine it had been the one that struck and killed Moody. After questioning Bishop, they arrested her and charged her with murdering Moody.
The couple have a history of domestic issues throughout their two year relationship with both calling 911 on each other in the past. On the day Moody was killed, the couple had gotten into yet another fight that had Moody leaving the residence on foot.…
According to Bay 9 News, Thorin Montgomery was with some friends on the back porch of his home playing Russian Roulette with a .38-caliber handgun. Thorin was the first to go, and much to the relief of everyone else playing, Darwin stopped by for a visit.
The gun discharged, the bullet striking Thorin in the head. He didn’t die right away, but would do so later after being airlifted by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center in very critical condition.
The other morons playing the game with Thorin – ages 19, 18 and 16 – have not been identified.
“I’m shocked to find out they’re stupid enough to play that game,” said one neighbor, who obviously does not read D’D . “Kids nowadays, with them playing with guns the way they do, there’s no reason for that.”
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the exact cause of Thorin’s death.…
On Friday, police arrested William Hurt, 18, Deadra Hurt, 19, Harley Wade, 16, and Andrea Hurt, 16. They have all been accused of murdering a homeless man, Marcus E. Golike, 54, and then dumping his body into the Ohio river.
All four teens lived with Debbie Hurt, a woman who runs a foster care home and brings in troubled juveniles. Deadra Hurt was her biological daughter, but Debbie had adopted William and Andrea Hurt. Debbie had let Harley move into the home within the last month, and just from reading the articles and comments about him, he is one messed up kid.
The victim was known to Debbie and the teens because Marcus’ mother was Debbie’s foster mother. Even though they were not biological siblings, Debbie and Marcus considered themselves brother and sister.…
Forrest City, AR – It’s coming up on four years since I wrote about Reginald Davis (note: very graphic), and that case still rings my outrage bell loud enough to put any civil defense siren to shame.
Quick recap: Davis went to visit the new mother of an eight-day-old baby girl–supposedly his daughter. When the 15-year-old mom returned after leaving the baby alone with Davis so she could get a shower, she observed blood on the baby, and the mother and grandmother took the little girl to the Forrest City (Arkansas) Medical Center, accompanied by Davis.
A medical examination indicated the infant had been raped; it also was noted that she had a fractured skull. Police were called, Davis was arrested, and the little girl was transferred to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock due to the severity of her injuries.
For any of you new to the case, let me reiterate: EIGHT. DAYS. OLD.
If we were to say that the case as it originally stood filled all three able-to-be-perceived dimensions on the WTF?/OMG!…
ROCKLAND, Maine — A 5-year-old boy is in the hospital today as doctors try to reattach the hand he had severed in a freak jump rope accident.
The boy was in the back seat of his grandmother’s car Tuesday evening and found something to do with a jump rope that was worse than the restraining methods I use them for–from a personal safety standpoint, that is.
The boy had one end of a jump rope wrapped around his wrist while the other end was hanging outside the car window. As they sat at an intersection, the rope got tangled in a car that had pulled up alongside them. When that car drove off, the rope was pulled, and the boy’s hand was yanked off.
A passerby stopped to assist the boy and provided aid until EMS workers arrived. The boy was taken to Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport and the driven to Mass General by ambulance after poor weather conditions prevented the LifeFlight aircraft from being used.
No word on if the surgery was successful or how the boy is doing.…
Phoenix, AZ – Michael Marin, 54, entered a courtroom yesterday afternoon to hear a jury issue its verdict on charges that he had committed arson by burning down his Biltmore Estates mansion in July 2009. He appeared to have entered the courtroom with nothing but a drink bottle.
However, video shows that immediately after the verdict is read, Marin places his head in his hands, and then appears to put something small, perhaps a pill, into his mouth, then swallow. Minutes later, he turns to someone behind him, begins convulsing slightly, and then collapses on the floor.
When emergency personnel arrived on the scene about ten minutes later, they placed an unresponsive Marin on a stretcher and took him to an ambulance. He was later declared dead. Toxicology tests will not be available for a few weeks. Little will be known about the apparent suicide until then, unless either a suicide note is found, or an acquaintance can give some relevant insight into anything Marin might have said prior to his death.…
Houston, TX — A 24-year-old moving company employee has been accused of taking pictures of and fondling a customer’s 5-year-old girl while he was on the job.
According to court documents, Justin Summers was working for the moving company hired by a family to help them move into a new home. While at the house, the report states he entered an upstairs room where the customer’s 5-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son were playing a game.
That’s where Summers allegedly fondled the girl and took inappropriate photographs of her with his cell phone. The charges are only being file now because no one knew anything may have happened until the girl’s brother recently told his mother what happened.
He told her that he saw Summers “lifting his sister’s skirt and removing or pulling down her underwear and then taking several photographs of her genital area.” The girl confirmed her brother’s comments and later told investigators that Summers “touched her private area by putting his finger on it” before taking the pictures.
Police tracked down Summers and were able to seize his cell phone where they found some creepy videos of the girl.…
Port St. Lucie, FL – Robert Gabriel Gernot, 54, was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge for threatening to kick his neighbor’s ass, but only after he’d taken care some business of his own, apparently.
Gernot’s neighbor stopped by on June 17th and attempted to engage him in conversation, to which Gernot responded that he was not in any mood to talk. And who could blame him? After all, he’d probably been out at sea all day, dragging nets, hauling them up, and battling the elements. Oh, wait. That’s the Gordon’s fisherman. Perhaps something else was bothering him, right?
At some point, it is believed that the neighbor threatened to beat Gernot’s ass, though Gernot later told a deputy that he never actually felt threatened.
Realizing that Gernot was probably in need of a break from his hectic beard-growing job, the neighbor went back home and returned with a beer and a cigarette, presumably to serve as a peace offering. He also took care of some planting he’d promised Gernot’s mother he would do in her yard.…
West Jordan, UT – Early Tuesday morning, Kathy and Brad Newbold awoke to find that their six-year-old daughter, Sierra, was missing. She wasn’t in her bed at the family’s suburban Salt Lake City home. She wasn’t anywhere. Kathy Newbold called police to report her daughter missing, and within a half hour, Sierra’s body was located in a canal a block from her house. Yesterday, an autopsy found that Sierra was sexually assaulted and murdered while her parents slept.
That’s the story, so far. Cute little girl allegedly abducted from her bed, apparently murdered, dumped in a canal. It’s already national news. The parents are not, at this time, considered suspects. West Jordan is on high predator alert. It’s a tragedy. So far, it appears to be that rarest of crimes – a stranger abduction. Not unheard of in Utah (see Elizabeth Smart), but uncommon anywhere.
I dunno, though. Maybe I’m cynical, jaded by years of stories that start out this way and end with a parent or weird relative or family friend on trial.…
West Haven, CT — A woman has been placed behind bars after making a series of videos of herself abusing her 10-month-old daughter and then sending those videos, along with some messed up text messages, to the child’s father.
Court records show 24-year-old Kellie Park took seven videos of herself abusing her little girl then sending those videos to the child’s father through at least 55 text messages that included such gems as “I’ll f***ing break her face in” and “I’ll beat her face in” along with the timeless classic, “I love abusing this kid.”
The videos were just as disturbing. One shows Park as she kicks a gate on top of her crying child causing her to fall, and then saying “don’t you get it? Your father doesn’t care so guess what, I’m not gonna care.” Another video shows Park throwing food at her crying daughter as she sat in her high chair. In other videos Park can be heard telling her daughter she’s not worth half a cigarette, and that she makes her life miserable.…
Arlington, VA – A Virginia woman is seeking $5.3 million in damages from Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer’s former employer, Human Life International, the Catholic Diocese of Arlington and its bishop, Paul S. Loverde. She asserts that when she met Euteneuer in 2008, she believed she was possessed by the devil, and that the clergyman proceeded to sexually abuse her frequently over the next two years under the guise of exorcising her demons.
In 2008, “Jane Doe” decided to seek the help of Euteneuer for her spiritual dilemma. He diagnosed her case as “severe,” and offered his services despite knowing full well that he was not “authorized” by the church to perform exorcisms. He then had her sign an agreement promising full cooperation, and he meant it.
To my utter stupification, the Catholic church actually has about fifty people around the country who are trained to exorcise demons; mostly from deep within prepubescent boys, I’m guessing. In 1999, the Vatican formally revised and upheld the practice of exorcism for the first time in nearly 400 years. …
BARTLESVILLE, OK — A 24-year-old woman is facing felony charges after she got busted with her pants off, kissing a 15-year-old boy inside a fitness tanning booth.
The teen was at the Colaw Gym with his mother last Thursday night. His mother noticed 24-year-old Betsy Ann Brashear flirting with her son and told her to stop and asked other members there to keep an eye on them as she went to work out.
Later, someone at the gym informed the mother that he just watched her son and Brashear enter one of the tanning booths together. The mother started banging on the booth and her son opened the door. Brashear was also inside the booth and trying to hide, but the boy’s mother dragged her ass out of the booth.
When she noticed that Brashear was naked from the waist down, wearing only a sports bra, so she allowed her to return back inside the tanning booth because there were men watching the entire incident.
When police arrived, Brashear admitted she knew the boy was 15, but that “there was nothing wrong or illegal about giving someone a kiss.” She denied removing any of her clothing.…
