In The Mean Time...
The body of 52-year-old Harold Sasko was found in his home on January 17 after the family of one of his former employees, 19-year-old Sarah McLinn, called police to report her missing. Sasko owned several CiCi’s pizza places in the area and had let McLinn move into his home in 2012.
Officers who found Sasko say he had suffered several traumatic injuries, and believed he was subdued and unconscious before an “edged device” was used to kill him. McLinn’s car was still in the driveway, but Sasko’s car and dog were misssing.
Police immediately began searching the area for McLinn and issued a nationwide alert to be on the lookout for McLinn and Sasko’s Altima. That searched ended a week later when, 1500 miles away, Rangers found McLinn illegally camping at Everglades National Park. She was living in Sasko’s car and was found with drugs and Sasko’s dog, Oliver.…Continue Reading
WESTMINSTER, CO – Vince Nett, a 16-year-old sophomore at Standley Lake, attempted suicide in the school’s cafeteria by drinking a bottle of bleach and then setting himself on fire.
At around 7:30 a.m. Monday morning, Nett was in the school cafeteria when he drank a water bottle full of bleach before dousing himself with Coleman fuel and lighting himself up. “I could see the kid in the flames,” a student said. “He was standing and it was almost like he was dancing around in the fire.”
A quick-thinking cafeteria worker was able to retrieve a fire extinguisher that a custodian used to put out the flames. Nett was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, suffering from burns to 80 percent of his body. Aside from a teacher cutting their hand while getting the fire extinguisher out of its glass case, no one else was injured. Police say Nett never tried to harm other students.
No on knows why Nett decided to kill himself in such a fashion, but over the weekend he posted his plans online.…Continue Reading
HERNANDO COUNTY, FL – Police have accused Cody Marrone, a 21-year-old corrections officer, of punishing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son by repeatedly burning his genitals with a hair dryer.
Meghan Sherron said it was routine for her to leave for work while her longtime, live-in boyfriend would take him to daycare. But last Friday, Marrone called her at work to inform her that her son’s genitals were swollen.
She had Marrone come to her work so she could see what he was talking about and found that her son’s genitals were swollen to the size of a softball. She also noticed burn marks to his thigh, buttocks and chest.
“When I saw the marks on his behind, I thought, that looks like my blow dryer,” she said. When she asked Marrone what the hell happened to her kid’s junk, he went through several different stories including; he woke up and found him that way, he blacked out and doesn’t remember, and that he simply snapped.
The boy was rushed to Tampa General Hospital where doctors would find the boy was suffering from second-degree burns.…Continue Reading
VENANGO TOWNSHIP, PA — A 12-year-old boy in Pennsylvania is facing animal cruelty charges after police say he intentionally killed a dog by injecting the animal with air.
According to police, the boy stole some syringes from a neighbor and used them to inject air into the family dog, a Labrador mix. After being injected, the dog became ill for a week before dying. Police say the boy knew that by injecting air into the dog’s blood vessels, that the dog could die.
The investigation is continuing, but Trooper Jason Domenick says he expects theft and cruelty to animals charges to be filed against the boy in juvenile court.
“I’ve never hear of anybody doing that,” said LeRoy Stearns, executive director of the Crawford County Humane Society. “That’s a new one on me. I’m dumbfounded.”
After running this site for a decade, I’m definitely not dumbfounded. In just the last two years, we’ve reported on an 11-year-old girl who beat a puppy to death, an 11-year-old boy who drowned a dog in a hot tub, and a 12-year-old boy who hanged a dog just to watch it die.…Continue Reading
OKEECHOBEE, FL — Bryan Adams, 31, is looking at some serious time in jail, along with a re-arranged face, after he abducted his son he believed was possessed by demons.
According to the police report, Adams showed up at his ex-wife’s workplace demanding her car keys. He told her he wanted their 11-year-old son and that he was seeing demons. She denied his request, and later told police she’d left Adams because of his heavy crystal meth usage.
Not taking no for an answer, Adams abducted his 11-year-old son from his bed at around 3 a.m. that morning and dragged him into some nearby woods. Adams told his son, who was clad only in his pajamas and a t-shirt, that he was possessed by a demon. “You are the demon.” Adams informed his son. “You know what I must do with you.”
Before anyone could find out exactly what Adams had in mind, police arrived with a K-9 unit and were able to quickly locate Adams and his son lying on the ground in the woods.…Continue Reading
WOODLAND, WA – Teresa Hernandez is facing two counts of child abuse after the 35-year-old admitted to using a clothes iron to burn the hand of her boyfriend’s 3-year-old, then pushing him down a flight of stairs two days later.
The boy’s father was not at home during these assaults, but Hernandez explained to him that the burn on the boy’s hand came from him touching a hot iron after she had left the room. The boy’s father accepted this explanation, but took his son to the hospital two days later after noticing he was walking unsteadily.
Emergency room staff at Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital called police when they saw the third-degree burn on the back of the boy’s hand and found he was suffering from a severe head injury. The boy was taken to Randall Children’s Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery to treat his brain injury. As of Thursday morning, the boy was listed in fair condition.
When interviewed by police, Hernandez first repeated the “touched the iron” story she’d given the boy’s father.…Continue Reading

COWANSVILLE, PA – Every now and then a story comes along with enough wtf that there is little I need to do but report the facts. This story about a teen who “expelled wind from the vulva during coitus” inside a school bus is one of those stories. Enjoy!
An 18-year-old girl was cited for harassment after she allegedly elbowed a 13-year-old boy in the nuts inside a Pennsylvania school bus. She was angry with the boy because he laughed at her for queefing while she had sex with another student at the back of the bus.
According to Trooper Jordan’s original report:
“Both the victim and the accused were riding school bus. The accused expelled wind from the vulva during coitus while at the back of the bus. The victim began to laugh and chuckled at the accused for her actions. The accused approached the victim and elbowed him in the testicles. Accused was cited for harassment.”
Trooper Jordan said that while his original report was accurate, his superiors deemed it a bit too detailed and had him modify it.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – It’s only been two weeks since we signed on with Patreon, and already we have 96 patrons with a combined monthly pledge of $450. This warms my black heart and shows we are totally capable being totally independent without the need for advertisers.
For those of you unaware, we have decided to use Patreon in an attempt to crowdfund the site. You can read the long explanation over on our Patreon page. But the short story is the site keeps getting more expensive, but the ad revenue does not change. I could use shitty ads that pop-up\under or fly-over, but I hate those and most of you are probably using some kind of ad-blocking software.
So, as a test, we though we would see what would happen if we tried not sucking up to advertisers and relied solely on our fanbase and get back to not caring what we post or how we post it. Patreon may just be the way we achieve that, while still making enough revenue to keep the site up and running.…Continue Reading
According to Burlew, she and Jason Ash liked to engage in strangulation and cutting during sex, but she took things a little too far last Saturday. Everything was going ok until she wrapped some electrical wire around Ash’s neck and choked him for a tad too long, killing the guy.
At first Burlew though Ash had simply passed out, so she tried to get him to wake up by cutting him with a razor. When that didn’t work, she did the next best thing and used the razor to start cutting herself. Eventually Burlew realized that also wasn’t working, and called her mother to inform her Ash was dead.
When her mother arrived at the apartment, she found Ash dead on the bed with a cord around his neck. He was fully clothed but his pants were unbuttoned. Able to handle stressful situations better than her daughter, she called 911 and tried performing CPR instead of conducting an interpretive dance and punching Ash in the crotch.…Continue Reading
Mundelein, IL — A 14-year-old girl is facing three counts of murder after authorities say she stabbed her 11-year-old sister nearly 40 times. Apparently, her ungrateful little sister didn’t appreciate everything she had done for her.
“She indicated she was mad from the night before,” said Asst. State’s Atty. Claudia Kasten during a detention hearing for the teen. “She went downstairs to get a knife. . .With each stab wound, she said she was not thankful for what she (the older girl) had done.”
Kasten, citing the autopsy, told the court the teen stabbed the girl 30 times across the neck, chest and arms and slashed her face three times. The girl also suffered bruises to her chest, and non-penetrating knife wounds “too numerous to count,” meaning she probably was jumping away from the knife, police say.
Police learned of the attack early Tuesday morning after receiving a 911 call from the teen. Her initial story was that she woke to the sound of her sister’s screams just before 8:00 a.m.…Continue Reading
Authorities claim 18-year-old Brandon Davis, apparently high on some sort of synthetic drug, attacked his neighbor early Sunday morning, biting the man on his face, hands and neck while yelling something about eating the man’s eyeballs.
The victim, 54-year-old Nick Sorace, told police he heard a commotion at about 2:00 a.m. Sunday, and when he looked out the window to see what all the fuss was about, he witnessed Davis beating a dog.
“He thought the dog was the devil,” Sorace said. “And then the next thing he sees is me, illuminated — and all of a sudden, I’m the devil.”
Davis apparently kicked in Sorace’s front door, chased a woman through the house and out the back door, then returned. He started beating and biting Sorace, continuing with his “You’re the Devil” spiel.
“He broke a flower pot over my head, he was sticking me in the neck with pieces…he stuck his thumb all the way in my eye socket and he just ripped my mouth and he bit my face.…Continue Reading
Officers were called out to the Carolina Pride pork plant early that morning and found the victim bleeding from a hole in her neck. The woman told police she and a co-worker, identified as Johnnette Lachelle Brown, were in a room where the hogs are slaughtered and cut up for processing, when Brown accused the woman of slugging her with a hog stomach.
The victim denied doing so, pointing out to Brown that there weren’t even any hog stomachs on the table. Regardless, it was on…
After a brief verbal altercation, Brown reportedly grabbed a pair of scissors and stabbed the woman in the neck. The victim apparently managed to fend Brown off with her fists until co-workers pulled the two apart.
A witness to the alleged confrontation confirmed the victim’s story, saying there were no hog stomachs on the table in question.…Continue Reading
Sandra Nabucco, 53, was just out walking her dog, minding her own business Wednesday, when a porcupine reportedly fell off a lamppost and landed on her head, leaving nearly 200 quills behind.
Wait…. what? Porcupines can climb? *googles* Yes, porcupines can climb. Except for African porcupines — I guess they just don’t like to. Learn something new every day here at the DD, eh? Like, did you know that the male porcupine squirts a hot stream of piss at the female porcupine prior to mating? Now you do.
“It was a huge shock,” Nabucco said of the incident. “I felt a thud on my head and then felt spines with my hands. The pain was enormous.”
A surgeon removed the quills with tweezers. Nabucco claims to have stopped counting once she reached 150, but swears there had to have been at least 200 quills lodged in her head.…Continue Reading
According to the unidentified 50-year-old victim, he and his brother, Michael Charles, were watching the Niners get their asses handed to them by the Seahawks Sunday, when Michael went to grab the last can of Pepsi.
Michael, apparently a Niner fan, had been drinking steadily throughout the day and continued to grow more and more agitated as the game dragged on. When the alleged victim asked him not to drink the last soda, shit got violent.
“Go fuck yourself,” Michael reportedly demanded. He then knocked his brother upside the dome with a metal pipe. Totally justified.
Michael then allegedly armed himself with a small knife and proceeded to stab his brother in the chest several times. In retaliation, the brother grabbed a knife and stabbed Michael in the arm. Sigh…. kinda makes me miss the family reunions I’m no longer invited to.…Continue Reading
Sarasota, FL — Authorities arrested 28-year-old Shelley Bezanson after learning the woman strangled her 7-year-old adopted Pit bull with her own chain so no one else could have her.
Diamond was apparently abandoned, left chained to a pole, outside the Sarasota County Humane Society in October of 2012. Bezanson, after jumping through all the necessary hoops, adopted Diamond in January of 2013. It was about then that Bezanson made a promise to the critter — the two would be together until the end. Apparently, Diamond’s end was in November.
Acting on an anonymous tip, officers were dispatched to the home of Bezanson’s mother on November 14. Bezanson was apparently heading to mom’s place to bury Diamond. Officials soon learned that Bezanson strangled Diamond to death with her own chain.
“It was prolonged, it was painful, it was torturous, and it was a horrible, horrible death for this dog to die,” said sheriff’s office spokesperson Wendy Rose.
At the time of her confession, Bezanson reportedly told police she was in the middle of a breakdown while she was choking the life out of the dog, and she had no idea that what she was doing was wrong.…Continue Reading
ALHAMBRA, CA – On Friday, 28-year-old Jamie Carrillo posted a video of herself confronting a former teacher she says sexually abused her when she was a child. Andrea Cardosa, the alleged abuser and assistant principal of Alhambra High School, has since resigned.
The video’s description stated:
“I am 28 years old and have been waiting years to get up enough courage to report a teacher for sexually abusing me for years. When I finally got up enough courage to report her, I found out that the statute of limitations was up and she will never have to pay for the things that she did to me. I decided to call her and make a video to let the public know what kind of person is around their children. Her name is Andrea Cardosa and works with your children at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, Ca.”
In the video, Carrillo explains she was abused by Cardosa for years, starting when she was just 12-years-old and Cardosa was a basketball coach at her middle school in Moreno Valley.…Continue Reading
New Port Richey, FL – Police have charged 30-year-old Kayla Shavers with child neglect after she left her 9-year-old and 8-month-old in a freezing car while she went hog hunting.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, they received a call from the 9-year-old at around 7 a.m. Thursday morning. He told them that he and his baby sister had been in a car for 30 minutes, and the car was off.
Since it was 38 degrees outside, the boy told police he was freezing and called 911 because he figured “a police car would be warmer.” Deputies were dispatched and found the boy and his sister in a car parked on the side of a dark, isolated road.
They waited for nearly 40 minutes before Shavers finally emerged from the woods dressed in camouflage. She told police that she was hunting hogs that have been tearing up her property. She defended leaving the children in the car, explaining she stayed in close proximity and had showed the boy how to crank the vehicle if it got cold.…Continue Reading
