Phoenix, AZ - A daycare owner has been arrested after she admitted to choking a 6-year-old girl in her care, and possibly abusing a baby with pillows.
According to the probable cause statement, when a mom arrived at 36-year-old Shan Marie McDonald’s daycare to pick up her two daughters, ages 1 and 5, she found her baby on the couch with a busted lip and unable to open her eyes. The baby was taken to the hospital where she was treated for various injuries, including bruises on her neck, shoulders, face and thighs.
When the 5-year-old was interviewed, she said she didn’t know what happened to her baby sister but did know what happened to a 6-year-old girl who was also at the daycare. According to her, she saw McDonald choke the girl because she couldn’t find her shoes.
The mother of the 6-year-old had also noticed her daughter was sporting injuries when she picked her up and had taken some pictures of marks on her throat and scratches on her forehead. …Continue Reading
A loopy bird in Florida has been accused of posing as a television show producer and scamming thousands of dollars from businesses who believed they would be featured on a Fox television show.
According to police, Jessie Alexander contacted several Palm Beach businesses to let them know that for the low, low price of $3,500, they could have their business featured on a new show on FOX 29 titled “Best of the Palm Beaches”.
In return, the publicity would garner the business $47,000 of publicity after it aired on May 19. One of these business owners, Linda Gary, ponied up the cash to have her Worth Avenue real estate firm featured, but called police when the show never aired and Alexander would not return her phone calls.
Police investigated and quickly found out that Alexander was not affiliated with FOX 29 and did not have permission to use the station’s logo, which was on the agreements Alexendar had her victims sign.…Continue Reading
SPOKANE, Washington – Motorists in Spokane started calling police on Sunday after getting an eyeful of a pious pedestrian. Witnesses told officers that William “Billy” Ogan, 31, was masturbating on the side of the road and displaying his penis to women.
Ogan confirmed this, telling police he was celebrating his “new marriage” to God, “working for Jehovah,” and “spreading God’s word.” God reportedly wanted Ogan to show his penis to women in order to teach them about sex. At press time, God had not responded to calls seeking his side of the story, and, of course, he cannot be forced to testify against Ogan thanks to spousal privilege.
Ogan was supposed to appear in court for three counts of indecent exposure on Tuesday, but “he refused to participate in the court process,” so he had to go on Wednesday instead. When Billy showed up, he did so without a lawyer and told the judge he didn’t feel anyone else in Spokane County could defend him.
“The legal system here in this facility, they don’t do the job, so I feel better representing myself,” Ogan said while surrounded by three deputies.…Continue Reading
Greenwich, CT - A man told police he “lost it” when he bashed his wife’s skull in with a baseball bat inside their mansion after learning she was leaving him.
Police responded to the $7.3 million estate of Michael and Diane DeMaio on Tuesday after receiving a report of a domestic situation with injuries. Once inside, they found Diane, 54, laying in a pool of blood inside a large closet with three ice packs placed under her badly disfigured head.
“What, hello, what’s going on,” she said before closing her eyes. Police tried to put pressure to a large gash on her head, “but felt it was soft”.
Also in the home was Diane’s elderly mother, Gloria Sica, who was screaming that Michael had attacked her daughter. “That monster hit her and she’s dying,” she screamed. An officer drew his gun on Michael and placed him in custody. The 55-year-old would confess to using a baseball bat to bash his wife’s head in.
“I lost it, I just lost it,” he told the officers as he lay handcuffed on the ground, explaining he became enraged shortly after learning his wife was leaving him.…Continue Reading
EFFINGHAM, IL - A man in Illinois has been charged with the murder of his 7-year-old niece after claiming that she fell on a stick andneeded to be put “out of her misery.”
Willow Long, 7, lived at her grandparents’ home with her mother, Ciarra and her uncle, Justin. Willow was reported missing on Sunday after her mother said she lay down for a nap, leaving the girl watching television with her 3-year-old brother, and woke up to find she’d vanished.
When she asked her son about Willow’s whereabouts, the boy pointed to the front door. Willow had apparently changed clothes before leaving the house, and had left her glasses behind. After failing to locate her, Willow’s mother called police.
Investigators were first working on the theory that Willow had left the house to re-enact scenes from THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, the movie she was allegedly watching when she was last seen, so the search initially focused on nearby bodies of water.
More than 300 volunteers and members of the FBI, the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, the Watson Police and the Illinois State Patrol took part in the search that ended 30 hours later, when four volunteers found Willow’s body a few miles from her home.…Continue Reading
University Park, TX – While it’s understandable for a bored housewife to pick up a hobby, a man in Texas found out his wife had been at home trading child porn online - for over a decade.
Erika Susan Perdue, 42, pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to downloading and sharing child pornography since 1999. According to reports, Perdue confessed to “file-sharing child pornography every day,” in her 1.4 million dollar mansion while her husband, a successful attorney, was at work.
Perdue was arrested in April of last year after she unwittingly traded some of her child pornography with an undercover agent. She was using Facebook under the name Classybitch, with photos of herself posing as a sultry housewife. This isn’t surprising for a woman who reportedly drove a Camaro around town with personalized license plates that read “MY SYN”.
Detectives were eventually able to track her down and raid her home, finding a graphic collection of pictures and videos containing sexual content of minors on her computer, including video of of a man and a woman engaged in sex with a child.…Continue Reading
On August 27th, 22- year-old Anthony Ruff asked his 8-year-old stepson to take the dog out to use the bathroom in the apartment’s common area without a leash. After the dog did its business, it decided to partake in a pit bull’s favorite snack – a small child.
The dog didn’t have to look far as there were children out playing and it wasn’t long before it was enjoying a 2-year-old boy’s face. Ruff’s stepson was unable to do anything but watch as the dog laughed maniacally and took another bite from the tasty morsel.
The victim’s mother was alerted by her 4-year-old son who’d ran inside screaming that his little brother was dead. Mom immediately ran outside to find that wasn’t entirely true, but the boy was bleeding motionless on the ground with the dog standing nearby with blood on its mouth.…Continue Reading
Gonzales, LA - A three-year-old boy died on Sunday after he wandered away from his home and got his head trapped inside a partially open car window.
The boy’s family told investigators that the toddler wandered out of the house without any of the adults in the house knowing. After just a few minutes, the adults realized he was missing and started looking for him.
He was found hanging by the neck from the partially opened window of a Chevy Lumina parked outside. When responders arrived, the boy had already been removed from the window. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:30 p.m.
The boy wasn’t tall enough to put his head through the opening and would have needed to climb on something to reach the window, deputies said. Sheriff’s Office detectives are still investigating the death.…Continue Reading
San Antonio, TX - A 67-year-old Texas man was sentenced to 35 years in prison after being convicted last month of raping his son’s prom date.
The incident happened In May 2012, after Ismael Cruz’s son and his son’s 19-year-old girlfriend returned home from the prom. Because they had been drinking heavily, the girlfriend decided to spend the night.
The girl told police that she woke up in the middle of the night with her dress partially removed and someone on top of her. When she realized it wasn’t her boyfriend, but rather her boyfriend’s father, she pushed Cruz away and screamed for help.
Cruz’s son ran out and began beating him, and continued to try and get his hands on him even while police were on the scene. Cruz, who has two prior drunk driving convictions, told investigators he’d drank more than 60 beers that night.
Cruz’s attorney had asked state District Judge Ray Olivarri for the minimum penalty of 25-years in prison. Judge Olivarri took the attorney’s suggestion under consideration, then sentenced Cruz to 35 years behind bars.…Continue Reading
HANCOCK COUNTY, MS - A man recently released from prison after setting his dead fiancee on fire, now stands accused of brutally attacking a woman.
Mark Rice was just released from jail in March, but now he’s back in custody on charges of kidnapping, sexual battery and aggravated assault. He’s accused of beating a woman so badly that Chief Investigator Glenn Grannan called the attack one of the most heinous attacks he has dealt with in Hancock County.
“She suffered injuries to her face. She suffered injuries to her throat; He attempted to strangle her with the electric cord attached to a lamp,” Grannan said. “She suffered injuries to her buttocks area and back side as a result of a sexual attack.”
The unidentified woman was found by a roommate who had returned home to find the victim bound with duct tape and electrical ties. Unlike idiots in the movies, this person did not go into the house and investigate, but rather ran out of the house and called 911.…Continue Reading
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Last week we reported on the naked man who got his ass handed to him by the father of the girl he got caught spying on. Now it’s being reported that the father may face more time behind bars than the Peeping Tom.
Police say 29-year-old Dylan Maho was naked and making noises underneath a young girl’s window last week. When the girl’s father, Emilio Chavez III (pictures), went out to investigate with his son and his son’s friend, they found Maho and proceeded to chase him down the street before beating the ever-living shit out of the pervert.
Responding police found Maho bleeding in the street suffering from severe injuries. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Earlier news reports said he may not make it, but just like his penis outside of a kid’s bedroom window, Maho wasn’t staying down. He has since been upgraded to stable condition.
Once out of the hospital, police will charge him with felony voyeurism, a fourth-degree felony that carries a max penalty of one to two years in jail. …Continue Reading
Charleston, SC – An early morning shagging resulted in multiple charges for a couple caught having sex inside a shed at a South Carolina Home Depot.
The couple were observed going into a display shed and closing the door behind them at around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. The employees didn’t look to see if there was any shmexy action going on in the butthut, instead deciding to call police.
When officers arrived at the scene and looked inside the shed, they discovered 20-year-old Emily Craig inside with her dress untied at the top and hanging around her waist. Also inside was 31-year-old Shaun Bowden. He had no shirt on and his pants were down to his knees, exposing his penis.
Craig’s troubles grew as fast as Bowden’s erection shrank after she gave police a false name and date of birth. Police discovered her true identity, and learned that she was on probation after being convicted of burglary and drug possession last year. Not surprisingly, she has at least one other arrest for prostitution.…Continue Reading
MISSOULA, MT - A woman in Montana has been accused killing her husband of one week by pushing him off a cliff during an argument, instead of killing him with 30 to 40 years of incessant nagging.
Cody Johnson, 25, and Jordan Graham, 22, were married a little over a week ago but their honeymoon was short lived after Johnson was reported missing on July 8, when he did not show up for work.
Graham said she last saw her husband the night before, when he left their house late on July 7 with unidentified friends in a dark-colored car. On that same night, Graham reportedly sent a friend a message stating she was going to talk to her husband about her regretting having ever gotten married.
On July 10, Graham spotted her husband’s body at the base of a cliff in Glacier National Park and alerted park rangers. When asked how she knew where to look for Johnson’s body, she claimed she received an email telling her that her husband had died after a fall while hiking.…Continue Reading
GILA BEND, AZ - A mother of three has been arrested after an anonymous tip informed police that she had burned her 2-year-old son on top of an electric stove.
Child Protective Services received a tip from an anonymous caller who claimed that 26-year-old Anna Ochoa was aggressive and abusive with her children. The caller added that Ochoa was particularly nasty with her 2-year-old son and made comments such as, “I’m going to hurt him because I am fed up with him,” and “I don’t love him.”
CPS looked into the the caller’s claim and discovered that the child had severe burns on his buttocks consistent with a stove’s burner. He also had bruises on his lower back and blisters on his lips and fingers.
When questioned, Ochoa admitted to burning her son because she had gotten upset over him wetting himself. She told investigators she removed her son’s clothing, turned on one of the burners on her stove and then held the boy over the hot burner.
She said she didn’t know how long she had held the boy over the burner but afterwards she got ready for work without tending to the boy’s injuries.…Continue Reading
KANSAS CITY, MO - A mother who got angry with her son’s kindergarten teacher has been accused of hitting her in the face, jerking her hair, and then ramming the teacher’s head against a filing cabinet.
Kansas City police say the attack occurred Thursday afternoon after 24-year-old Simone Baker entered her son’s kindergarten classroom at Truman Elementary to talk to the teacher “about what her son stated (the teacher) did to him in class earlier today.”
Baker’s 6-year-old son had returned home from school with a scratch on his neck that he stated was inflicted by his teacher after he had gotten into trouble at school earlier that day.
The teacher reportedly told Baker that if she wanted to speak with her and the principal regarding her son, she needed to return on Friday. Instead, Baker went to the principal’s office where she reportedly created a scene.
“She came up to the school very irate,” said Ebony Walker, the school district’s spokeswoman. “The administration did everything they could do to keep her calm.…Continue Reading
Port Arthur, TX – This article was written by Gaucha in our Workshop forum. I will get this under their name once their account has been created. A one-month old is currently in a full body cast after being beaten and shaken so badly that her brain had shifted.
Faith Mason was brought to the hospital last month suffering from a plethora of injuries, including a broken neck, arms and legs. In addition, the baby had a lacerated liver, a ruptured kidney and her brain had shifted due to being violently shaken. Some of these injuries are reportedly weeks old.
Because of the severity of her injuries, Faith was flown to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston and put in a full body cast and has not regained consciousness. The team taking care of Faith has stated that this is the worst case of child abuse they had ever seen.
Faith lived with her mother, 20-year-old Christine Johnson, her father, 17-year-old Darrell Mason, and Christine’s aunt, Linda Fields. To be honest, you could throw a dart at these three and whoever you managed to hit could possibly be the person responsible for Faith’s injuries.…Continue Reading
REDSTONE TOWNSHIP, PA – Most people recall fond memories of the ice cream trucks rolling through their neighborhood, but the only memories one 12-year-old girl in Pennsylvania will have of these musical, frozen treat dispensers is having been raped in one.
According to the affidavit, Ronald Burwell III and a 12-year-old girl were selling ice cream in June. The co-owner of this particular ride stated that drivers bringing kids along with them is something a lot of the drivers do. He also stated Burwell presented the girl as a family member, and had only been working for F & S Ice Cream for about three weeks. “She would call him ‘Dad’ around the yard when we were loading up trucks and things. There’s something bloodcurdlingly creepy going on there,” the co-owner’s son said.
Ronald “Ronnie” Burwell’s activities were discovered after the girl and her mother went to the police on Wednesday, September 4th to report the sexual assault. The girl told detectives that a few days before the rape, she and Burwell were already going into the back of the ice cream truck kissing and discussing using protection during sex.…Continue Reading
Dallas, TX - Two teenagers checking out an attractive woman in the car next to them helped save her from a kidnapper after she mouthed the words, “Help me” at the teens.
Aaron Arias, 19, and Jamal Harris, 17, first noticed the woman in the back seat of a car at a stoplight. They were checking her out because they thought she looked good, but the woman looked “panicked” and was mouthing “Help me” at the teens who noticed the driver of the car had turned to look back at them.
Arias called 911 and reported what was happening. “Yes, I’m on the highway,” Arias told the 911 dispatcher. “I’m witnessing a robbery; not a robbery — a kidnapping.”
The teens followed the woman’s car down U.S. 175 until police caught up with them and pulled the car over. Turns out that an hour earlier, the 25-year-old woman had been kidnapped after leaving a downtown office building.
Police say Charles Atkins Lewis Jr smacked her across the head with a pistol and forced her into her own car.…Continue Reading
ALBUQUERQUE, NM — A man is in critical condition after he got caught peeping into the window of two teenage girls, then got his naked ass beat by the girls’ father and brother.
The incident occurred at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday, when a man called 911 to report a naked Peeping Tom was caught outside his home, staring through a window at the caller’s 13- and 15-year-old daughters.
“The bushes were shaking. Then she heard groaning and moaning,” said the girls’ mother, Katrina Chavez. “My oldest son went out, said ‘What are you doing?’ and then discovered he was naked.”
Police say the girls’ dad, brother and a friend of the brother – ages 29, 19 and 19 – chased the naked man away from their home and down the street before a fight ensued. By time police arrived, the suspected pervert was found in the street, badly beaten.
The man was taken to the hospital and is in unstable, critical condition as of yesterday. So far the three men have not been arrested for putting the alleged prowler in the hospital, but the District Attorney is working with detectives to determine if they should be charged with a crime.…Continue Reading
KALAMAZOO, MI - Kelli Stapleton has been charged with attempted murder after police say the 45-year-old tried to kill herself and her 13-year-old autistic daughter.
Police said Kelli Stapleton and her daughter, Isabelle, were found Tuesday after having suffered from carbon monoxide poisoning. Kelli was released from the hospital on Thursday, but Isabelle remains unconscious and in critical condition. Doctors fear she may have suffered permanent brain damage.
Matt Stapleton reported his wife and daughter missing Tuesday afternoon after receiving a “disconcerting, despondent” phone message from Kelli and found their van was gone from their home.
Police found mother and daughter unconscious inside the smoke-filled van in a rural area nearby. Kelli had lit a portable charcoal grill inside the van, then locked the doors and closed the windows.
Kelli regained consciousness quickly but has not been forthcoming with police in regards to her motives. Taking a look at her blog, The Status Woe, doesn’t make it too hard to figure out.
In her last entry, dated Sept 3rd, Kelli states she is suffering from a “severe case of battle fatigue” and was upset after learning Isabelle would not be allowed to attend a local school program.…Continue Reading
