In The Mean Time...
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Police say 48-year-old Amy Newman, a sixth-grade math teacher, left her school after a heated phone conversation then stabbed herself to death in a Holiday Inn hotel room.
Newman arrived at Francis Scott Key School yesterday morning, where she has worked for twenty years, but stormed out after a heated telephone conversation.
She then drove to a Holiday Inn a mile away, left her purse in her car and entered a first-floor restroom just feet away from a packed conference room. Minutes later someone attending the conference entered the bathroom and noticed blood pooling from underneath one of the stalls
Hotel staff were notified and would find Newman in the locked stall suffering from multiple stab wounds; a steak knife and a pair of scissors at her feet. She was rushed to the hospital suffering from several self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck, breast and arms, but was pronounced dead after undergoing surgery.
Police say they’ve recovered a suicide note at the school where grief counselors have been made available to students and staff.…
EVERETT, PA – A 14-year-old boy is facing two years in jail after he simulated oral sex from a Jesus statue that, honestly, looked like it was made for something exactly like this.
The teen got himself in trouble after simulating the sex act with a statue that belongs to the Christian organization, Love in the Name of Christ. A friend of his snapped the photo in late July and then posted it on Facebook where it quickly went viral.
On Tuesday, police arrested the kid and charged him with, get this, desecrating a venerated object — a rarely used 1972 law. If he’s convicted, he could be looking at two years in juvenile jail. In case you are wondering, like I was, Pennsylvania law defines “desecration” as:
“Defacing, damaging, polluting or otherwise, physically mistreating in a way that the actor knows will outrage the sensibilities of persons likely to observe or discover the action.”
In other words, the teen hasn’t been been charged with damaging anything, he’s been charged for possibly offending a religious person by putting his crotch in the face of a Jesus statue.…
Barngrover, 32, was with his 9-year-old son driving to purchase Barngrover’s “dream truck” when his current truck stalled on the train tracks. After getting himself and his son out of the truck, the train hit the vehicle.
According to eyewitnesses, the force of the collision caused Barngrover’s truck to smash into him. Barngrover was rushed to Indiana University Health Morgan Hospital where he would die from his injuries.
His son was taken to the hospital where he was treated for pain, but I’m guessing the bulk of the damage that kid will suffer from isn’t the physical kind.
A GoFundMe page has been setup to help Barngrover’s wife and three children with funeral and medical costs. The couple dated for 12 years but just got married last year.
“I still keep hoping to wake up and have my sweet husband laying next to me like he was supposed to for the rest of my life.…
BLACKSTONE, MA — Just two weeks after four children were removed from a vermin-infested home because of suspected abuse or neglect, investigators found the remains of three infants inside the same house.
Police have not charged anyone in relation to the discovery of the bodies, nor have they released the causes of their death. However, they have arrested one of the home’s residents, 31-year-old Erika Murray, on a witness intimidation charge and charges stemming from the living conditions inside the home
“What we know is that we have three infants that have been found deceased at this residence,” Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said. “The house is filled with vermin. We have flies, we have bugs. We have used diapers, in some areas as much as a foot-and-a-half to two feet high.”
Early said officials will be at the now condemned house for the next several days and will continue to search for additional remains.
Two weeks ago, DCF removed a 6-month-old, a 3-year-old, a 10-year-old, and a 13-year-old, from the home after one of the children told a neighbor that the youngest child would not stop crying.…
CENTER TOWNSHIP, PA – Stacey Golden is facing assault charges after she reportedly gave her boyfriend’s 9-year-old grandson a bloody nose at the boy’s bus stop.
According to the criminal complaint, the fifth-grader was crying when he got on the bus with a bloody nose and a black eye. Authorities were called after the boy told the bus driver and school officials that “Golden punched him in the face because she was mad at her boyfriend.”
His statement was corroborated by the driver who reported seeing Golden “outside flailing her arms in an aggressive manner” while she was talking to the boy.
“She struck the boy at least once, if not more, and he sustained some minor injuries,” Chief Barry Kramer said. “Someone lost their temper.”
Police arrested Golden and charged her with simple assault, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment. According to reports, the boy lives with his grandfather and Golden, which means things are probably pretty awkward in that house right now.
It’s been a few years since we’ve had an adult beat a kid’s ass at a bus stop.…
LITITZ, PA – Police have arrested 46-year-old Donald Hackman Jr. after they say he assaulted his girlfriend over several days, including lighting her vagina on fire.
Investigators were alerted to Hackman after his girlfriend admitted herself to the hospital seeking treatment for her injuries that included second and third degree burns to her lower stomach, genitals and inner thighs.
According to the woman, her injuries were caused by Hackman over the course of days. Aside from punching her repeatedly in the face and stomach and beating her several times with a belt, she says Hackman set her vagina on fire.
I, too, have been accused of setting vaginas on fire, but through pure animal sexuality — Hackman took a shortcut. The woman said that Hackman poured lighter fuel on her crotch and then lit her up. She said Hackman helped extinguish the resulting fire, but yelled at her for screaming and crying in pain.
The woman also said that during one assault, her 7-year-old tried to intervene and Hackman ended up locking the boy in a closet.…
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL – Renata Congleton got herself into a bit of trouble last Friday after the 27-year-old arrived at an elementary school to pick up a child while having a blood alcohol level five times the legal limit.
Staff at Trinity Elementary School say Congleton was extremely intoxicated when she arrived at the school and tried to pick up the child. Police were called to the school but before they got there, Congleton drove off — hitting two cars in the process.
Deputies would find Congleton at home, sitting by her front door. She reportedly swore at them as they tried to question her before kicking and scratching a deputy while being handcuffed.
Congleton was charged with neglect of a child, battery on a law enforcement officer, and resisting an officer with violence. Her bond was set at $15,000.
I don’t know what’s in the water in Florida, but it seems to make women get their drink on before picking their kids up from school. Congleton is the fourth Florida woman we’ve reported on who’s done this, and wins the award for being the drunkest.…

Police believe Jones killed his five children, between the ages of 1 and 8, then drove to Alabama where he dumped their bodies on a dirt road in a rural area. The kids had been reported missing by their mother on Sept. 3.
Jones was pulled over at a motor vehicle checkpoint in Smith County, Mississippi. He became agitated when a deputy questioned him about an odor of chemicals coming from his Cadillac Escalade. When the deputy searched Jones’ vehicle, he found chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine and some Spice.
Even worse, officers found what appeared to be bleach, muriatic acid, blood and possible body fluids inside the vehicle. A quick background check on Jones revealed he was wanted in South Carolina “regarding a welfare concern of his children,” who were on a national missing persons list.
It was at this point Jones admitted he’d killed his five children and led officers to their decomposed bodies along a logging road in Alabama.…
BANGOR, ME — Adam Morton has been charged with aggravated assault after the 27-year-old dumbass put a 2-year-old boy in a running clothes dryer, leaving the toddler with second degree burns.
The incident occurred last month while Morton was watching his girlfriend’s son and three other children. He initially told police he didn’t know how the boy was injured because he was in the shower when it happened, but would later admit that he’d put the boy in the dryer – but not for very long.
He said the boy was only in the dryer for one revolution, but that was inconsistent with the boy’s injuries that included second degree burns to his back and arms, as well as burns and blisters on this feet.
Dr. Lawrence Ricci also conducted a forensic examination of the boy that had him concluding the boy was in the dryer much longer and may not have been the first time.
“There were lesions on the lower back that looked like they could have been healing burns and incidentally, the two circular lesions correspond to bolts on the inside of the dryer,” the doctor noted.…
NEWARK, DE – Two boys, ages 13 and 14, have been arrested in connection to videotaped attacks on a mentally challenged man.
The videos were posted online and showed 26-year-old Karon being beaten by several teenagers while other teenagers stood around and watched. The teens can be seen repeatedly punching Karon in the face and body slamming him.
Karon’s mother says he suffers from Williams Syndrome and has the mental capacity of a second grader. “He doesn’t do anything to anyone but be kind,” she said.
The cool thing about this story, aside from the teens getting busted, is how they got busted. A 16-year-old girl saw the videos and wanted to do something about it.
Angeliz Marrero re-posted the attacks Saturday using #TheBullyProject. Within 24 hours, she had 18,000 new Instagram followers. “It spread so fast and I’m just so grateful for everybody that’s helping me out because if it weren’t for everybody helping, supporting and everything, this wouldn’t even go viral and that man really deserves justice,” said Angeliz.…

On September 6, a large group of teens left a CiCi’s Pizza and made their way to a nearby Kroger parking lot while chanting, “Fam Mob.” They began beating people at random, including a 25-year-old customer who was getting out of his car.

VERO BEACH, FL – Kevin Adorno was on the final stages of his bike ride down the East Coast when he stopped in a McDonald’s and was stabbed to death by a mentally ill homeless man who thought Adorno was trying to have him killed.
Adorno, 28, was only two days and 100 miles away from completing his trip from Maryland to Miami. His girlfriend was to meet him 20 miles from his destination so that she could finish the trip with him.
What she didn’t know was that once in Miami, Adorno had planned to propose to her.
Unfortunately, Adorno crossed paths with 59-year-old Rene Herrera Cruz, a mentally-ill homeless man, when he stopped at a Vero Beach McDonald’s to grab something to eat and use his phone.

The Graham family were camping in Book Cliffs Saturday night when they had an unwelcome guest who was very persistent in getting inside their camper.
Sami Graham said she was putting her four kids to bed inside the camper, while her husband was out deer hunting, when she heard a knock on the door. She opened the door but didn’t see anyone there.
Moments later, she heard a violent scratch on the side of the camper and decided to look out a window to see what was going on.
“I went over to my kitchen window and pulled up my blinds and looked out. I had to put my face pretty close to the window and there he was face-to-face with me.”
The “he” she is talking about was a 6-foot tall black bear standing on its hind legs peering into the kitchen window.…

The pit bull had the smaller dog at the back of the neck holding the loose skin and fur there,” said Reeves.…
