In The Mean Time...
Howell called 911 last year to report her 17-month-old daughter, Jaslynn Mansfield, was not breathing. The baby was rushed to the hospital where she would later die of acute methadone toxicity.
After police found a baby bottle in Jaslynn’s room contained methadone, Howell would admit that on the day her daughter died, she had given the baby methadone to help her go to sleep.
What makes that fact so tragic is that had she told emergency workers this when her daughter was brought to the hospital, they very well could have saved her life.
According to the child’s grandmother, Howell knew the dangers of the drug as Jaslynn was born addicted to it and her father died from a methadone overdose a few months before she was born.
In July, Howell would plea guilty to second-degree manslaughter and causing a child to be exposed to a controlled substance.…
MORELIA, MEXICO – A man has been arrested and charged with murder after he drowned his 3-year-old stepdaughter by repeatedly throwing her into a hotel swimming pool.
Police said the man was staying with a woman and her daughter at a popular hotel on August 12 when he decided to take the girl to the pool after her mother fell asleep.
As you can see in the disturbing video below, the man repeatedly throws the little girl in the pool. Sometimes he just drops her in the water, clothed, while others he haphazardly slings her out into the middle of the pool.
Each time he does this, the asshole nonchalantly walks around the edge of the pool or swims around her as she frantically tries to keep her head above the water. With each toss, the girl’s attempts at swimming become weaker and weaker.
The video also shows the man holding the girl under water for significant periods of time while other people are nearby and never intervene.
Later, the child stops breathing and was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. …
MINNEAPOLIS, MS – Brian Cleveland, a 54-year-old janitor at a Washington County elementary school, has been accused of raping his 12-year-old adopted daughter and amassing a large amount of child porn that was being stored on his school-issued computer.
According to reports, the girl has been living with Cleveland for the last two years after being removed from her biological parents’ care. Police began investigating Cleveland in July after the girl told Anoka County investigators that she and Cleveland had a “bad secret.”
The girl didn not want to tell investigators what that secret was because she did not want to lose another family. She would eventually tell them that Cleveland had been sexually abusing her for the entire two years she had been living in his home.
Police executed a search a warrant at Cleveland’s home and confiscated a laptop belonging to the Forest Lake School District. Cleveland was arrested on August 19, the same day a forensic analysis found someone had deleted a large amount of child porn off the laptop at around the same time Cleveland was under investigation for criminal sexual conduct.…
HERE, NOW – I am Christopher “Morbid” Lee and I have been running Dreamin’ Demon since 2004. As a lot of you know, I have been fighting our server, off and on, for the last couple of months – but it has gotten a lot worse over the last week.
What started out as a hobby has turned into something else that strongly resembles a second job. The issue is that I never started the site to make money any further than paying for itself, and I still don’t. I just want to write horrible articles. I had no idea that we would find an audience of sick, twisted individuals that actually like reading the site on a daily basis.
This has caused us to upgrade our hardware and software multiple times through the last decade, and in that time I have been doing fine with the bit of money we got from ad revenue and Patreon donations from our fans. But now the site has reached another milestone, and those methods are not going to help resolve our dilemma in the time frame we need it to.…
MONETA, VA – Local CBS news station WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward have died after being shot to death during a live broadcast.
Alison Parker, 24, was in the middle of an interview with Smith Mountain Lake Chamber Director Vicki Gardner at around 6:45 a.m. when a man walked up and fired about eight shots at Parker and her cameraman, 27-year-old Adam Ward.
You can see Parker reacting and screaming during these shots as the camera falls to the ground and captures a man in black pointing a handgun at Ward. The segment quickly cuts back to the news room to a very shocked anchor.
WDBJ’s general manager Jeff Marks would come on the air later to confirm that both Parker and Smith had been shot to death.
“We do not know the motive. We do not know who the killer is,” Marks said. “We do know that Franklin County sheriff… they are working very diligently to track down both the motive and the person responsible for this terrible crime against two fine journalists.”
The Franklin County Sheriff Department is saying that three people had been shot in the incident, so I am assuming Vicki Gardner was shot and is currently alive.…
Back in January, Quesenberry was babysitting Koda Chrisely while his mother went out job hunting. The mother knew Quesenberry since middle school and had let her babysit her children multiple times in the past with no issues.
That all changed on Jan. 17 when she tried to pick up her son and Quesenberry would not answer the door. Over the next 72 hours, the mother tried getting her son while Quesenberry made excuses as to why that wasn’t possible but assured her that Koda was fine.
Koda’s mother finally told Quesenberry that she was calling police if she did not get her son back, and that did the trick. But once the woman was reunited with her son, she discovered he was suffering from severe second- and third-degree burns on his left arm. He also had what appeared to be cigarette burns on his abdomen, behind his ears, nose and other areas.…
The 29-year-old victim was eating at the restaurant with her family on August 24th when she upset a 17-year-old waiter. The two got into an argument over the addition of water to the hot pot.
In response, the waiter went to the kitchen and then returned with a big ass bowl of boiling water that he poured on top of the poor lady’s head. But he wasn’t finished. The teen then slammed the woman to the ground and began kicking her.
Two women who were eating with the woman, as well as six customers, had to drag the victim away from the teen and restrain him there until police arrived.
The victim was rushed to the hospital to treat the burns to her face, torso and back. She was last listed in stable condition, but from the looks of her injuries, she’s in for one painful recovery.…
SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC — Porsche Cartee, 25, was killed by her pit bull on Saturday during an attack that also injured her mother and sister.
According to police, the 7-to 10-year-old male pit bull first attacked Cartee’s mother and then attacked Cartee when she stepped in to help. Cartee’s sister managed to get the dog locked into another room in the house, but it was too late for Cartee.
She would die at the scene from bites to her head and body. Her mother and sister both suffered injuries to their arms, her mother suffering injuries so severe that they required surgery.
Investigators don’t know why the dog attacked, police saying it could have been anything from a high-pitched noise to the brand of toilet paper in the house, but Cartee’s ex-boyfriend said it’s probably because the dog was a total asshole.
“I have never seen a dog more aggressive,” said Patrick Powell. “That dog was so aggressive. I wanted to kill that dog. I said if you don’t let me do it, let somebody else do it.…
PARK CITY, KS – Michael Rush is facing animal cruelty charges after the 26-year-old used a small dog as a weapon against a police officer.
On Sunday night, police were called to a neighborhood after people who lived there called to report a suspicious man walking through backyards and kicking fences.
A responding officer encountered Rush walking a small pug-mix on a leash and “acting erratically.” When the officer tried talking to Rush and asked him to stop, Rush spit at the officer and used the dog’s leash to swing the dog at the officer multiple times.
The officer tried using a stun gun on Rush, as well as pepper spray, but Rush continued to charge the officer until other police arrived and were able to get him under control and into custody.
Rush now faces animal abuse charges as well as battery against a law enforcement officer. The dog was unharmed and is currently at the Wichita Animal Shelter. Park City police say they’ll do everything they can to make sure the dog finds a safe home and does not go back to Rush.…
According to reports, Christian arranged a meeting with his father at a Braum’s restaurant Sunday evening to work out a dispute the two had earlier that morning. Obviously, things did not go well.
Witnesses say the two men got into a heated argument before Christian, 26, stabbed his father with a knife. Mark got up and walked around the restaurant seeking help before walking out to the parking lot. That’s when Christian attacked his father again, stabbing him multiple times in the head and neck.
Other people at the restaurant intervened and used belts to hold Christian at the scene until police arrived. Mark, a married father of five, was found dying in a car in the parking lot. Despite attempts to save him, Mark would be pronounced dead after being transported to the hospital.
Christian was taken into custody and is currently looking at a charge of first-degree murder, as well as a possible death sentence.…
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Here’s a weird one. The body of 26-year old Julie Mott was stolen from her casket following her funeral service at a San Antonio funeral home.
According to reports, Mott’s body was taken from Mission Parks Funeral Chapel North following her August 15 service that ended around 1:30 p.m.
“The next morning when they came back to the funeral home, they discovered that the casket Ms. Mott had been in for the service was actually empty,” said SAPD Sgt. Javier Salazar. “Her remains had been removed.”
The funeral home locks up around 4:30 p.m., and since an alarm at the facility had not been triggered overnight, police believe her body was taken after it had been moved to a private visitation area in the back of the funeral home.
Mott died on August 8th after a life-long battle with cystic fibrosis. The owners of the funeral home are close with her family and have known the deceased since she was born. They are offering a $20,000 reward to help catch the person responsible for this “shameless act.”
Salazar told reporters that a single person could be responsible fro the theft of Mott’s corpse, as the girl was petite.…
LINCOLN COUNTY, KY – Police in Kentucky have arrested 44-year-old Michael May after he was caught trying to dig up his father’s grave so he could argue with the dead man’s corpse.
Lincoln County constable Delbert Mitchell noticed a truck parked at the Pilot Baptist Church cemetery at around 10:30 p.m. Monday night and went to investigate. He would find May using a shovel and a pickaxe to dig up his father’s grave.
Mitchell said that when he asked May what in the hell he was doing, May began “hollering out verses” from the Bible and explained that he was trying to dig up his old man in order for his deceased father to go to heaven.
May’s father died more than three decades ago after being beaten to death at a sawmill while drinking with co-workers. According to Greg Haynes, the pastor of Pilot Baptist Church, May explained that his “Daddy didn’t do things right,” and he needed to be dug up in order to go to Heaven.
“He needs to be on the ground.…

According to police, MacCalister had been planning to kill someone for months because she was “angry with life.”
On Wednesday afternoon, she walked into a Shaw’s supermarket and targeted Wendy Boudreau because the victim had “looked at her funny” in the parking lot and was a small elderly female MacCalister “knew wouldn’t resist,” according to court documents.
Other shoppers say there was a lot of shouting before MacCalister grabbed Boudreau from behind and then slit her throat.
Two EMTS were already in the store shopping, so they immediately began providing medical assistance to Boudreau while store employees and shoppers held down MacCalister until police arrived. MacCalister said she was off her meds and had planned on killing more people had she not been stopped.

WASHINGTON, DC – Robert Smith Sr. has been charged with first-degree murder after police say he he squeezed his 5-week-old son so hard that he fractured the infant’s vertebrae and ribs.
According to the court documents, the infant’s mother called 911 when she went to check on the baby and found he was not breathing.
The baby would be pronounced dead at the hospital where the medical examiner would find the infant had suffered rib fractures, both recent and old; a fractured vertebra; a fractured wrist; and a scabbed abrasion on the back of his head.
Smith would admit to detectives that on the day of his son’s death, he woke up about 7:30?a.m. that morning to his son crying. Smith went to check on him and squeezed him “like you squeeze a roll of toothpaste” until he heard a cracking sound. The boy went limp and groggy, so he placed him back in his sleeper.
Smith admitted that this squeezing technique was one he had employed on previous occasions when his son would cry or become fussy – about three or four times a day in the days leading up to his death.…
HOMESTEAD. FL – Police have arrested four Homestead Job Corp students for their roles in the death of 17-year-old Jose Guardado, who was brutally murdered with a machete then buried in a shallow grave.
Guardado went missing on June 28 after being dropped off at the Job Corps facility. His brother would find his body several days later, buried in a shallow grave in some woods near the Job Corps center.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – According to recently released court documents, Jared Fogle, the dead-eyed greasy lipped spokesperson for Subway, will plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex acts with minors and received child pornography.
Last month we reported on a raid conducted on the home of Jared Fogle, in connection to a child pornography investigation involving 43-year-old Russell Taylor.
At the time of his arrest, Taylor was the director for the Jared Foundation, a foundation created by Fogle in an effort to help kids live healthy lifestyles and to put his sub in their pretty little mouths.
Taylor was arrested after investigators found more than 400 videos child pornography on his home office computers. Police also found videos taken by cameras hidden in Taylor’s home that “showed the exposed genitals or pubic area of the children.”
While Taylor was looking at a handful of child pornography related charges and an attempted suicide while in jail, Fogle was quick to distance himself from Taylor, stating he was “shocked” at the news and that he and his foundation had completely severed ties with Taylor.…
The incident happened Saturday afternoon, when Weathford called police to report a 13-year-old boy had vandalize his front walkway by smashing some landscaping bricks.
While police were there taking the report, they noted a strong smell of urine but could not determine the source.
The source of that smell would reveal itself after they were called back to the location by the mother of the boy who allegedly vandalized Weatherford’s walkway. She was calling to report Weathford had assaulted her snowflake with urine.
The 13-year-old told police he’d got into an argument with Weatherford, an argument that ended with Weatherford dumping a bowl full of piss on his head from Weatherford’s his second-floor balcony.
Police wrote in their report that while the teen was talking to them, he “had a strong smell of urine emanating from his person.”
That visual is hilarious to me — a sulking teen having to talk to police covered in stinking piss because his mother wouldn’t let him wash it off so there would be proof of the act.…
BELLEFONTAINE, OH – Brittany Pilkington has been charged with the deaths of her three young sons after the 23-year-old admitted to murdering them because her husband was paying more attention to their daughter.
On Tuesday, Brittany called 911 to calmly report that her son, 3-month-old Noah, was not breathing. Noah was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Noah would be the third son Brittany and her husband have lost in a year.
In July 2014, she lost her 3-month-old son, Niall. In April of this year, her 4-year-old son, Gavin, would die. Authorities were still trying to determine the cause of Niall and Gavin’s death at the time of Noah’s passing.
So it was totally understandable that police would like to have a talk with Brittany. After just a few hours of questions, Brittany admitted she had killed her three sons by placing blankets over their faces and suffocating them.
Her motive? According to Brittany, she killed the boys because her husband was giving them more attention than he was their 3-year-old daughter, Hailey.…
