In The Mean Time...
Dallas, TX -- An elderly man in Texas has been accused of shooting his two upstairs neighbors to death after a year of noise and dog feces complaints.
Police say that on Monday morning, 75-year-old Chung Kim shot 31-year-old Michelle Jackson after she walked out onto the balcony of her Sable Ridge condominium. Kim then went upstairs to her apartment and shot her boyfriend, 31-year-old Jamie Stafford.
When Stafford ran through the back patio door and jumped to the ground, Kim stepped onto the back balcony, leaned over, and shot Stafford again. In all, neighbors reporting hearing eight gunshots.
“I heard three [gunshots], then it stopped and I was about to rise up on the floor, and I heard five more and I got back on the floor,” said neighbor Yolanda Washington.
Kim drive away from the scene but was arrested nearby and then transported to the hospital for an undisclosed medical condition. He is facing two charges of capitol murder.
Jackson was a mother of five children, four of which were at school at the time of the shootings.…Continue Reading
The video was shot during an act for Circo Suarez in Sonora state. In it you can see as U.S. citizen Alexander Crispin, 35, circles two tigers during his act. One of the tigers lunges towards Crispin, then pulls down Crispin’s pants causing him to fall to the ground.
What follows is the tiger pinning Crispin to the ground as it claws and chews his face and neck area. As spectators flee the circus tent, circus employees begin beating the tiger in an effort to free Crispin.
No offical word on how they finally got the tiger to let go of Crispin, but some commenters on the Youtube video angrily stated that the tiger was killed. Crispin was rushed to Red Cross hospital Huatabampo, Sonora where he died as a result of hypovolemic shock.
I know this guy died a horrible death, as you can see below, but I just have a hard time feeling sorry for him or anyone who is killed doing that kind of work.…Continue Reading
Fairfield, CA – Slow news day today. Aside from that nut in the bunker getting himself dead, I couldn’t really find anything I felt like writing up. But I did find one story out of California that doesn’t seem to be getting covered by the major news outlets, and that’s the death of 13-year-old Genelle Conway Allen.
Genelle was in foster care and reported missing on Thursday after she didn’t return home from Green Valley Middle School. On Friday, her nude body was found lying face down on a cement median in Allan Witt Park.
“I got closer and closer. And the closer I got to her, the more it became real. And then I got right up to her, and I realized that was a human body,” said Eric May who initially thought Genelle’s body was a mannequin. “I tried to wake her up. I did. Absolutely. Look, I got three layers of clothes on. I know how to survive the cold. I was ready to take my outer clothes off and give it to her.”
There aren’t a lot of details, but reports are that Genelle was strangled. Investigators stated they won’t announce whether the teen was sexually assaulted for another six weeks.…Continue Reading
BOYNTON BEACH, FL — Police say a man broke into his estranged wife’s home and murdered his two youngest sons as their mother pleaded for him to stop. Before he killed himself, the man told the mother he was letting her live so she would have to suffer the loss of her children.
Victoria Zavala said that at around 2 a.m. Saturday she heard a commotion in her home and went to investigate. In the kitchen she found her husband, 45-year-old Isidro Zavala, dressed in black and strangling one of the couple’s teen sons with a rope.
Victoria begged Isidro to kill her instead, but Isidro told her he wanted her to suffer the loss of her two sons — 12-year-old Eduardo and 11-year-old Mario – before he shot himself once in the chest and then once in the head.
Police responding to Victoria’s call to 911 would find Isidro and his two sons dead at the scene. One child was found on the back patio and the other in the kitchen dining area.…Continue Reading
According to the boyfriend, Ronald Massie, Sample got all bent out of shape at his refusal to share, and grabbed his neck. She then snatched his cell phone in an attempt to keep him from calling police.
Massie managed to escape the crazy lady and called police from a nearby relative’s home.
While researching this particular story, these two names popped up in a story from 2012 – seems Sample stabbed Massie in the back in a fight over *drumroll* drugs. Massie is apparently a slow learner….
Back in April of last year, Massie and Sample had been arguing, reportedly over drugs, when Sample grabbed a butcher knife and planted it in Massie’s back, puncturing a lung.
Massie’s daughter told police told police Massie was struck in the head with a board prior to being stabbed. Oh, well, that might explain the stupid!
Massie was admitted to the hospital in critical condition.…Continue Reading
The call came in just after 3:00 Tuesday morning, police say.
When officers arrived at the store located in the Pony Village Mall, they say they found Darlene Huntley, yes… 45, locked inside.
No word on how she entered the store or why she didn’t just break a damn window to get out.
After a thorough investigation, Huntley was arrested and charged with second degree burglary and second degree criminal trespass, among other charges.
Huntley was transported to the Coos County Jail. No information on the bond/bail amount.
Even worse, they brought the ban hammer down. Hard. Huntley has been banned from the Pony Village Mall for LIFE! *insert echo here*
This, of course, brings to mind another Dollar Tree story we covered.
Back in 2011, we featured Shane Chavis – a man accused of holing up in the bathroom of an Arizona Dollar Tree.…Continue Reading
According to Manatee County Police, 38-year-old Katina Jane Collins did just that earlier this week.
The arresting officer was presumably just hanging out in his patrol car Tuesday afternoon when the following message flashed across his MDT:
“A woman with long braids and red pants was on a street kicking people in genitals and running around kicking a man.”
No word on whether she was giggling as she did so.
The officer spotted a female who matched the description, Collins, and asked her to walk towards him, police say.
Collins first walked, then ran away from the deputy — but then stopped dead in her tracks, turned to the left and popped the pursuing deputy in the face with a closed fist, knocking his sunglasses off.
The deputy was able to restrain and handcuff Collins.
According to jail records, just 12 days prior, Collins had been booked for battery on a police officer, fire-fighter or EMT.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
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.…Continue Reading
