In The Mean Time...
Jordan drove his son, La’Marion, to the hospital on Sept 3. He told doctors that the boy, who suffered from cerebral palsy, had fallen from his wheelchair and hit his head on the floor.
La’Marion was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center where he would die the next day. An autopsy revealed the boy had died from blunt force trauma to the head.
A sheriff’s investigator and an investigator with the State Law Enforcement Division’s child fatality unit would conduct a weeks-long investigation and determine the boy was not injured after falling from his wheelchair.
According to the arrest warrant, the boy was injured while Jordan was carrying La’Marion down the hallway of their home. For unreported reasons, Jordan allegedly “forcefully threw” his son to the floor, causing the boy’s injuries.
On Oct 13, Jordan was arrested and has been charged with homicide by child abuse. If convicted, he’s looking at 20 years behind bars.…
Sandra Ferguson was on her way to Sutter Elementary School Friday when she noticed one of her students in an unknown man’s vehicle. Ferguson sensed something wasn’t right and noticed that the girl looked scared.
Deciding to investigate, Ferguson pulled her car in front of the man’s vehicle and blocked him in. Ferguson asked the girl if the man was her dad, to which the girl answered no, that it was a friend.
“No, he’s not your friend,” Ferguson told the girl. “You get out of that truck right now.”
After the girl got out of the truck Ferguson called police, who arrested 51-year-old Santiago Salazar on suspicion of kidnapping. Police say Salazar “was not known to the victim” and followed the girl as she walked to school. They say he lured her to the passenger side of his vehicle and pulled her in by her wrist.…
BRADENTON, FL – Police have arrested 31-year-old Keishanna Thomas after the body of her 11-year-old daughter was discovered inside a deep freezer.
Thomas was already being investigated by the state on a child abuse complaint after her 12-year-old son called police from a Walmart to report he was being abused.
When investigators arrived at her home to take her children into state custody, they only found four of her kids – ages 2, 9, 12 and 15 – were there, and that 11-year-old Janiya Thomas was missing.
Thomas was arrested on contempt of court charges after refusing to answer any questions about her daughter’s whereabouts. Her four other children were been placed in state custody.
When the grandmother and aunt of Janiya learned the girl was missing, they decided to break open a deep freezer that Thomas and an unidentified man had brought to their garage last week. They discovered a body inside and immediately contacted police.
The body was turned over to the medical examiner’s office to determine the identity of the body and cause of death, although I think it is safe to assume Janiya has been found. …
The incident happened on Sunday night on a Aer Lingus flight from Portugal to Dublin when the man became erratic and attacked a passenger sitting near him.
After biting the other man, crew members restrained him before he lost consciousness. A doctor and nurse were on the flight and attempted to revive him, but were unsuccessful.
After the flight was diverted to the Irish city of Cork, paramedics pronounced the man dead on arrival. The man who was bitten was transported to the hospital while the remaining 165 passengers traveled by bus to Dublin.
Why the man lost his marbles and attacked another passenger is not being reported, but a 44-year-old Portuguese woman that was traveling with him was arrested after five pounds of suspected amphetamine powder was found in her suitcase.
That same day, a Southwest Airlines flight to San Francisco from Los Angeles had to turn around mid-flight after two passengers got into a physical confrontation.…
CHILLICOTHE, OH – According to police, the dead body of Rebecca Cade was seen hanging from a fence but dismissed by neighbors as a macabre Halloween decoration.
That is until a man walking his dog called police after he got a closer look at the “zombie prop” that was hanging on the fence by a shirt sleeve. On closer inspection, he realized he was looking at someone who’d been beaten to death.
Investigators searched the area and found a cellphone, a driver’s license, a shoe and a bloody rock. A coroner would later confirm Cade died after being beaten in the head and face.
Detectives would determine Cade had been attacked and tried defending herself. A trail of blood showed Cade ran from her attacker and tried to jump a fence surrounding an electrical substation, but would die suspended on that fence after her shirt sleeve got caught.
Later that night police would arrest 27-year-old Donnie Cochenour Jr., an acquaintance of Cade’s, after a tipster ratted him out. Cochenour has been charged with one count of murder and is currently on suicide watch in the Ross County Jail with bail set at $2 million.…
ALFRED, ME – Christopher Hall, 48, has been charged in with luring a female lawyer to the address of a potential client and assaulting and shocking her in the crotch with a homemade cattle prod.
The attorney, who works as a professional mediator, arranged to meet a new client named “Sue” through text messages. When she arrived at the address she noticed an old man with a cane standing next to a van.
Not thinking anything of him, she started towards the entrance when the man rushed her, shocking her between her legs with what was described as a cattle prod. He then put his hand over her mouth to stifle her screams because who doesn’t like a weird sexual-ish assault without a little smothering?
She fought back, kicking the man, knocking off his wig in the process. He fled on foot and took off in the van.
Investigators received a tip that Hall was the person that attacked her. They staked out his home, stopping a van as it left his address.…
LAKEWOOD, CO – Police have arrested 43-year-old Julie Greiner, accusing her of pimping out her 12-year-old daughter to a man in Australia in exchange for rent money and gifts.
According reports, Greiner’s daughter met 23-year-old Thomas Keski in an online chat last year. The girl’s relationship with Keski, who lives in Australia, turned explicit. The pair sexted with each other and shared nude pics of each other.
Keski would reciprocate by sending the girl and Greiner gifts, including jewelry, electronics and the sex toys police would find in the minor’s bedroom. All told, Keski sent around $10,000 to Greiner and her daughter for bills and rent, some of that money going to an engagement ring Greiner purchased for her daughter on Keski’s behalf.
“There were gifts and money being provided by this adult in Australia to the child’s mother,” Jefferson County District Attorney Pete Weir said. “The mother was aware that there was inappropriate sexual conversations and contact going on between the man and her daughter.”
Even more twisted is the allegation that Keski took Greiner and her daughter on a trip to Hawaii where Keski and Greiner’s daughter slept together in the same bed while Greiner shared a room with Keski’s mother.…
AIKEN, SC – Police have arrested 25-year-old James Quattlebaum after he decapitated a 2-week-old puppy in front of his girlfriend and her two children during an argument.
On Saturday, police responding to a disturbance call arrived at a home and spoke with 37-year-old Tarsha Hankinson. She told them her boyfriend, Quattlebaum, came home under the influence of narcotics and had beheaded a puppy in front of her and her two children, ages 7 and 10.
The two children told police that Quattlebaum had gotten into an argument with their mother then and confirmed he had used a large kitchen knife to cut the head off of one of their puppies.
Inside the home police would find blood on a rug in a rear bedroom and a large knife on a dresser. The knife was covered with blood and light-colored animal fur. Police would find the puppy’s body outside the home in a trash can.
The officers would find Quattlebaum in the driveway sitting in his vehicle reeking of alcohol. After being placed in a patrol car, Quattlebaum had to be hobbled when he “began kicking the door to the patrol car as officers began preparing to transport him” and spit in an officer’s face.…
Palm Beach County raided three slaughterhouses for illegal operation and extreme cruelty to animals.
The raid, which was the largest tactical strike on extreme animal cruelty in U.S. history, ended in the arrest of six slaughterhouse owners, employees and the rescue of 1,000 live animals.
According to authorities, the slaughterhouses sold illegally slaughtered horses for human consumption and shipped the meat from Palm Beach all the way to Miami.
The bust of Rancho Garcia owned by Jorge Garcia follows a 6-month underground investigation that revealed decades long buying and selling of animals from auctions and craigslist for slaughter, black magic and sacrificial purposes.
Undercover ARM investigators witnessed and captured footage of Garcia and his employees “selling large amounts of horse meat, violently stabbing pigs in the heart and boiling them alive, slitting throats of goats and rams before hoisting them by their hind legs then skinning them alive, and brutally stomping on ducks, slitting their throats and drowning them in their own blood.”
A puppy mill was also located on the property.…
KISSIMMEE, FL – Raymond, 56, and Debbie Sutherland, 54, have been arrested for the abuse and neglect of Raymond’s 81-year-old mother.
The unnamed victim recalls falling in her bedroom and asking her son for help several times before passing out. When she regained consciousness, she was lying in a pool of her own blood.
She was left to lay there and suffer while her son ignored her pleas. He finally called an ambulance “after some time.” Once examined it became apparent that the woman’s injuries were not consistent with a fall, but were from being abused.
In an interview with Raymond by Detectives, he initially denied any mistreatment to his mother, later admitting to taking medication that made him black out. Conveniently because he was “blacked out” he denied having memory of injuring his mother. The victim is currently in a rehabilitation center in critical condition.
Raymond and his wife, Debbie, have been arrested for felony battery charges and elderly neglect for not seeking medical assistance while he was busy being “blacked out” and his wife was busy listening to a frail old woman being beaten to a pulp from the other room while stroking her chin hair, daydreaming.…
Last week, Martha McClure was caring for Francis Jackson’s three children at her daycare when he showed up drunk with an unidentified woman.
McClure was aware that CPS had custody of Jackson’s children, all under the age of 4, and that he was to have no contact with them.
Jackson became angry that McClure would not let him pick up his kids, and threatened to assault her in front of the kids at the daycare. Despite the threat of harm, McClure physically removed Jackson from the building and lock the door.
Not satisfied, Jackson tried getting back in the building by throwing toys and a tricycle at a window. When McClure went back outside, she and Jackson got into a physical altercation that ended when Jackson’s unidentified companion smacked McClure in the face with a snow shovel.
Jackson took this opportunity to punch McClure in the face before he and the woman fled the scene without the children.…
DALLAS, TX – Thomas Johnson, a former Texas A&M football player, has been accused of hacking a random jogger to death with a machete “because he was angry about his living conditions.”
Police say Johnson has admitted to the slaying, which was witnessed by a passing cyclist who said he saw Johnson deal six or seven blows with a machete.
“As I get closer and closer I could tell it was a machete and there are repeated blows that are occurring. As I get closer, I could see what’s being hit is a person, lying face down on the ground,” the witness said. “It was apparent to me by the time I got close that there was nothing that could be done for the person.”
The witness said he heard the killer call out to him as he passed the horrific scene, but he wasn’t about to stick around to see what he wanted.
“I heard a little bit of a yell from behind. I assume it was the guy with the machete yelling to stop,” he said.…
Police have arrested 31-year-old Leigh Felten after she allegedly sold some sexually explicit breast-feeding videos that featured her 18-month-old son.
Tallahassee police were alerted to Felten after a woman in Wisconsin called them to report her husband had purchased seven disturbing videos from Felten that involved her breast-feeding her toddler.
According to the affidavit, the videos depict Felten and her toddler in the nude while Felton was “rubbing oil on herself and the child.” At one point, Felton’s “vagina and the child’s penis appear to be in contact with one another.” In another video, Felten “rubs her breasts back and forth across the child’s face.”
Investigators found Felten’s YouTube and Google+ accounts with a post that read, “New unlisted vids for a donation. Please support a single mommy.” When investigators searched Felten’s home, they found similar videos on a laptop.…
According to reports, Alt was sending the homemade child porn to a U.S. Marine stationed in Southern California, and got busted after investigators with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service found the material.
After being taken into custody during a traffic stop, Alt would admit to creating and sending the sexually explicit images to the Marine in exchange for cash and gifts.
Investigators said Alt was also prostituting via Craigslist and that these sexual encounters often occurred while her children were present. Police do not believe Alt’s husband was aware of her activities and was allowed to take custody of their children.
Alt, named 2014 Mrs. Orange County, is now in the Central Women’s Jail in Santa Ana in lieu of $100,000 bail. She’s facing charges of producing and distributing child pornography, and lascivious conduct with a child.
Officials said Alt worked with children at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints so there may be more victims.…
Police say a shoplifter was leaving Home Depot around 2 p.m. Tuesday and was followed by the store’s loss prevention employee.
As they tried to stop him, the suspect got into an SUV and sped out of the parking lot.
This was noticed by another Home Depot customer who was in the parking lot and had a concealed weapons permit. She decided to intervene and fired shots at the fleeing SUV, possibly blowing out one of the vehicle’s tires in the process.
The suspect got away and police are now on the lookout for the person who shoplifted from the Home Depot, as well as the person who was driving the getaway vehicle.
But the real story here isn’t the fact that someone shoplifted from Home Depot, but rather someone decided that this was a life or death situation and shot at the goddamn car.…

On January 23, Warner was at home watching his infant daughter, Ellorah Warner, while his wife was at work. Later that evening, he would tell police that his daughter was missing and had been kidnapped.
Before a search for the baby began, neighbors told investigators that they saw Warner carrying a bundle away from the couple’s home. Around 50 personnel surrounding sheriff’s stations, as well as search-and-rescue crews and air units started searching for the girl.
