In The Mean Time...
Irving, TX — Two Texas women are suing after a state trooper subjected them to a roadside body cavity search that was captured on video. On top of that, the case is being investigated by the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office’s public integrity division and will go before a grand jury in January.
Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece, Ashley Dobbs, 24, were driving down State Highway 161 one night last July when they were pulled over by state trooper David Farrell. The trooper told them he had seen someone in the car throwing out cigarette butts and then asked to search their vehicle for drugs because they were “acting weird.”
When his search failed to yield any illegal substances, he enlisted the help of female trooper Kellie Helleson to assist in a cavity search of both women. So on the side of the road, in front of a camera and passing motorists, Helleson probed both women’s anus and vagina while using the same latex glove.
In the video you can hear trooper Farrell tell the women he smells marijuana coming from the vehicle and Dobbs stating that, to the best of her knowledge, there was no marijuana in the vehicle.…Continue Reading
KEARNS, UT - An 11-year-old boy will face charges after he brought a .22 caliber handgun to school and threatened to kill a classmate.
The unidentified sixth-grader at West Kearns Elementary reportedly pulled the gun from his backpack during morning recess. He showed the gun off to classmates, telling them his parents had encouraged him to bring the gun in light of the Sandy Hook shootings.
When a fellow student threatened to tell on him, the boy allegedly aimed the gun at her head then threatened to kill her if she didn’t keep yer trap shut.
“He pulled out a gun and he put it to my head — me and my friend — (and) said he was going to kill us,” Isabelle Rios said. “I told him I was going to tell, but he said, ‘If you tell, I’m going to kill you.’”
So Isabelle kept her mouth shut until around 3:00 that afternoon when she finally told a teacher. That teacher immediately took the boy into physical custody and retrieved the unloaded gun, along with some ammo, from the boy’s back pack. He was taken to the principal’s office and police were called.…Continue Reading
Martell, NE - Looks like Matthew Wylie still hasn’t learned how to be around babies and not severely injure them. He was on our site back in 2009 after nearly severing a 3-month-old’s tongue, and now he’s back after allegedly breaking a 1-year-old’s skull.
A few years ago, Wylie was accused of almost severing the tongue of his then girlfriend’s 3-month-old. He would admit to pressing down on the infant’s tongue in an attempt to stop him from crying and possibly cutting the boy’s tongue with his fingernail.
Wylie was arrested and charged with felony child abuse. He would later be found guilty of the charges and sentenced to three to six years in prison. The boy’s mother, Tracy Daniel, kinda-sorta defended Wylie and would end up marrying him. The couple would have a daughter in 2010.
In September 2011, after serving less than two years in prison, the state Board of Parole approved his release after his Sunday school teacher told the board that Wylie has shown tremendous growth since being allowed to leave prison to attend Sunday school.…Continue Reading
Knoxville, TN — Robert Atkins, 31, is facing a whole slew of charges after allegedly roughing up his ex-girlfriend/baby mamma and taking off with her infant because she refused to make his dumb ass some Kool-Aid.
Atkins apparently showed up at the woman’s house in the early morning hours of December 10. Because a restraining order was in place, the woman pleaded with Atkins’ ride to take him away… she didn’t want him there. Atkins, apparently unfazed by a piece of paper that says where he can and can’t be, refused to leave.
I’m assuming he entered the woman’s home and made himself comfortable. Around 4:30 that morning, he demanded the woman whip him up a batch of Kool-Aid. When she refused, Atkins reportedly attacked, hitting the woman in the face.
The woman tried to escape into the bathroom, but Atkins followed and continued to assault her.
The woman told police Atkins took her keys and cellphone and placed a couch in front of the front door. She said she contemplated sneaking out a bedroom window, but Atkins had their 3-month-old son.…Continue Reading
Spartanburg County, SC — Not much to this one – no one was shot, stabbed, eaten or even arrested – but because it involves flatulence, I had to get it posted. ‘Cause hey, I’m mature like that.
Police were called to the home of Shannon and Michael Manatis earlier this week after receiving a report of a domestic disturbance. Seems the Mr. let loose a butt burp that left the Mrs. gasping for air and fighting the urge to toss her cookies.
Shannon reportedly told the responding officer said air biscuit was “bad enough to cause her to almost puke.” So, in retaliation, she grabbed a can of vanilla scented Lysol (that exists?!?!) and sprayed it in the area her husband occupied.
She continued the story, claiming that as she turned to leave the residence, Michael started belly-aching about how she had sprayed him in the eye. She further claimed that Michael threw a glass of tea at the back of her head, and for that, she wanted to press charges.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – An woman in Illinois is in jail on an aggravated domestic battery charge after she ran over her boyfriend and burned the skin off his testicles.
Christine Meyers, 23, got into a fight with her boyfriend Friday night after picking him up from a bar. When they got back to their home, her boyfriend got out of the car and, for some unknown reason, laid down in front of it.
Did he pass out? Was he preventing her from leaving? Who knows? What is known is that Meyers took this opportunity to remove some of the balls her boyfriend was displaying by getting in front of a car driven by a woman.
Prosecutors say she did this by intentionally running him over.
The boyfriend was not killed, but for a little while I’m betting he was wished he had been. That’s because aside from the severe burns he suffered to his chest and back, the skin was also burned off his testicles. In case you didn’t know, for a woman, the smell of her man’s testicles sizzling on her car’s exhaust pipe is the smell of victory.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – A judge has banned “actor” Edward Furlong from being alone with his six-year-old son after the boy tested positive for cocaine.
Although it’s not clear how the drugs got into the boy’s system, his ex-wife alleges they got there while he was in Furlong’s custody. On Friday, Furlong argued that his ex, Rachael Bella, is a liar who will do or say anything to keep him away from his son and destroy his (*insert air quotes*) career. The judge sided with Furlong’s ex-wife and ruled that Furlong no longer be allowed with his son without strict supervision.
Furlong’s career started when he 14-years-old, when he starred in TERMINATOR 2 and almost made it unwatchable with the sound on. His career peaked in 1998 when he starred alongside Edward Norton in the superb AMERICAN HISTORY X. Since then, Furlong has starred in a long line of turds, battling drugs and alcohol along the way.
The guy has spent time in rehab, and has a long history of arrests stemming from his drug use and\or assaulting his women.…Continue Reading
Ryan Reed, 27, and Allison Clement, 28, cared for 3-year-old Savannah Cross as part of their babysitting service they advertised on Craigslist. They had been caring for Cross since July and watching her on a full-time basis since October. Her mother, 27-year-old Ashley, would leave Savannah with the couple for weeks at a time, occasionally showing up to visit or pay her bill. The last time she visited her daughter was on Thanksgiving.
Ashley won’t have to worry about caring for her daughter any longer as the little girl is dead after suffering extreme physical abuse that ended with a well-placed stomp to the stomach. Police were called to the couple’s home Tuesday morning after receiving a call for a child not breathing. Savannah would die on the way to the hospital, where doctors would find signs the girl had been abused.
Savannah was covered in bruises on both sides of her body that were in different stages of healing.…Continue Reading
MONTREAL – Far be it for me, a resident of the great United States, to bash any other country’s legal system. But in Canada, a former cardiologist found guilty of stabbing his two children to death has been released after only 46 months of confinement.
In February 2009, Guy Turcotte stabbed 5-year-old Olivier and 3-year-old Anne-Sophie to death as they slept in their beds. One would hope that they did not suffer, but according to the children’s mother, that wasn’t the case. She is a physician and a coroner, so looking over her children’s autopsy reports revealed that her children experienced a long, painful death.
“I knew it was not a short death. You know, my little boy received 20 stabs of a knife, he had seven marks of defense,” said Dr. Isabelle Gaston. “He had no wound that was the one that gave him death,” she added. “My little girl, she had 19 wounds, maybe she was luckier? Because she had one that was more mortal than the other. But she felt 19 shots, that’s for sure,” Gaston said.…Continue Reading
ORANGE CITY, FL – Richard Watson has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to drown his wife in a dog’s water bowl after arguing about an under cooked pizza.
It happened Wednesday night as Richard and his wife, Debra, settled in with two frozen pizzas and began watching the 12-12-12 charity event on television.
After realizing his pizza was still raw, Richard threw a tantrum then threw his plate of food at the front door. In response, Debra threw her plate of food as well. This enraged Richard, so he tackled Debra to the ground and then held her head in a dog’s water bowl that contained three inches of water.
Debra said she wasn’t sure if he was using his hands or his knee to hold her head in place, but she’s positive she heard him say he was going to kill her. After managing to break free, Debra said Richard began strangling her in the living room by the front door.
“She felt her life was going to end,” said Orange City Cmdr.…Continue Reading
The alleged mastermind behind the bizarro plan is convicted killer and apparent Bieber fan, 45-year-old Dana Martin – a man serving two life sentences for the rape and murder of a 15-year-old Vermont girl back in 2000.
According to police, the aged “Belieber” began to formulate his evil plan after Bieber “slighted” him by refusing to respond to any of his messages. Oh, and did I mention Martin has Bieber’s face tatted on his leg? Yeah…
Martin apparently hooked up with another prisoner, 41-year-old Mark Staake, and fed him some bullshit about how he had access to a metric shit ton of money, acreage in Vermont and some connections to some Chinese gang in New York. Not sure what Chinese gangs have to do with anything, but whatever. If Staake wanted a piece of Martin’s fame and fortune, he just had to do one simple thing………
KILL THE BIEBER.…Continue Reading
Stillwater, OK – Nathan Cochran, a 22-year-old fraternity leader at Oklahoma State University, has been accused of sexually assaulting at least 11 male students while they were sleeping.
University officials were first made aware of possible sex assaults in November 2011, when the president of the FarmHouse fraternity asked about reporting sexual assaults. Afterwards five male students had come forward to report Nathan Cochran, a fellow member of the FarmHouse fraternity and the secretary of Oklahoma State’s Interfraternity Council, had sexually assaulted them.
One student said he was sleeping when he was awakened by Cochran fondling him. The student says he pretended he was sleeping in hopes Cochran would stop, but that it didn’t work out too well. The student said that Cochran rubbed his genitals on his face and tried forcing him to suck his dick before Cochran gave him a blowjob. Deep sleeper, that kid.
A second student stated he awoke in his dorm room to find Cochran fondling him. He didn’t get Cochran’s lunchmeat spread all over his face because instead of faking sleep, he got up and went to the bathroom.…Continue Reading
Police say Robert Bodiddlie Ball, 49, invited his estranged wife Janet over to his place Monday in the hopes of fixing their broken marriage.
Much to his dismay, Janet admitted that after 32 years together, she was no longer in love with him. *sob*
Instead of chuckin’ the whole thing in the fuckit buckit and moving on, Ball got all kinds of violent, reportedly punching the woman in the head and pocketing her car keys and cell phone to prevent her from leaving or calling for help.
After roughing her up a bit, Ball apparently whipped out a knife and forced her to sit and watch TV with him for a bit, repeatedly threatening to kill her if she gave him any trouble.
At about 5:00 p.m. that evening, police say Ball forced Janet to drive to Golden Corral, where he treated her to an endless buffet of less-than-fresh food and a side of food poisoning.…Continue Reading
RICHLAND HILLS, TX – A father has been accused of using a box cutter to carve a pentagram in his 6-year-old son’s back, telling a 911 operator he did so because it was a holy day.
Police arrested 39-year-old Brent Troy Bartel yesterday after he called 911 and calmly told the dispatcher he had “shed innocent blood.” At the same time, the child’s mother had ran next door to a neighbor’s for help, saying that Bartel was hurting their son.
When police arrived, they found Bartel alone in the home with his son, who was clad in only pajama bottoms and sporting a bloody pentagram that his father had carved into his back with a box cutter. They also found the child’s blood smeared on the sides and the top of the home’s door frame.
“I would say his demeanor was very flat. There were no indications that he was under the influence of any drugs,” Richland Hills police Sgt. Nathan Stringer said about Bartel.
The boy was transported to Cook Children’s Medical Center, where he underwent treatment for the pentagram that covered the majority of his back.…Continue Reading
I have been following this story since it first hit the news, but was waiting a bit because I really thought the girl was alive and had ran away from home. Turns out that may not have been the case.
On Sunday, 16-year-old Kayla Campbell left her home to go ride her bike and was supposed to be back home at 5:15 pm. Her father called Kayla on her cell phone when she did not arrive home on time and she told him she was on her way.
“We called her at 5:20 p.m., and she said she was close-by,” said the girl’s father, Robert Campbell. “But we didn’t feel like she was telling the truth.”
Campbell became more concerned after using location software he had installed on Kayla’s phone to find she was not in the location she said she was. They called police at around 6 pm after trying to call Kayla again and finding the phone had been turned off.…Continue Reading
Warsaw, Ind. – An appeals court threw out Paul Gingerich’s 2010 guilty plea on Tuesday, overturning the 14-year-old’s 25-year prison sentence and granting him a new trial.
It’s been two years since I first reported on Paul Gingerich. When he was only 12-years-old, he helped 15-year-old Cody Lundy murder Lundy’s stepfather before trying to run away to Arizona. They would both be charged as adults and Gingerich would be sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to the lesser charge of conspiracy to commit murder.
He would also become one of the youngest people in Indiana to be sentenced to prison as an adult.
But that may all change after the Indiana Court of Appeals reversed Gingerich’s 2010 conviction and ordered he get a new trial. They agreed with Monica Foster, the public defender who handled the appeal, that the court in Kosciusko County did not give the boy’s attorneys enough time to make the case that he should have been tried as a juvenile.
“The Constitution won today,” Foster said. “This is a 12-year-old kid who did not get the due-process protection of the U.S.…Continue Reading
HUDSON, FL -- Pasco County authorities say 16-year-old Jessica Laney hanged herself Sunday night, and some of her friends say cyber-bullying is to blame.
According to one of her friends, Laney attended Fivay High School after being transferred there due to bullying at her previous high school. But they say the bullying that led to Laney killing herself did not come from her new school, but rather from anonymous people online. In particular, members of the website Ask.fm.
For the un-initiated, Ask.fm is a social site where users can invite questions and comments from other members, anonymously. Laney’s page is full of the standard crap you would expect on a cute 16-year-old girl’s page, but also contains some disparaging comments from anonymous users calling her fat and a loser. Some even tell teh girl no one cares about her and instruct Laney to hurry up and kill herself.
Her friends say these negative comments are what led the girl to hang herself Sunday night, although official from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office says neither Laney’s parents nor Laney’s boyfriend were aware of Laney being bullied.…Continue Reading
Salem, OR – A 47-year-old woman in Oregon has been charged with attempted murder after she used her Ford F-150 to run down her husband.
Shirley Nunez suspected that her husband, Kenneth, was having an affair with a woman who lived nearby. So on Monday night, Shirley broke into the home of her husband’s alleged mistress and confronted the woman, pointing a gun at her in the process.
No details on what was discussed, but Shirley did not physically injure the woman and left the residence in her 2003 Ford F-150. Kenneth was not nearly as lucky. When Shirley got back home, she saw her husband walking to his motorcycle parked in front of their house and decided to give him a kiss with her truck’s grill.
Bill Deconcini said he and his wife woke up after hearing screaming and the two came outside to find Kenneth unconscious in the grass after Shirley had ran him down with her truck. He was transported to Salem Hospital in critical condition while Shirley was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation before being booked into the Marion County Jail.…Continue Reading
Police said 52-year-old Kathy Carlisle was on train tracks near the campus of St Francis, taking pictures of an approaching train, when she was struck from behind by a train travelling in the opposite direction. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The president of St. Francis said the school canceled classes on Monday and organized a memorial service for Carlisle. They’re also providing grief counselors and allowing students to set up a memorial and posting a bulletin board for students who want to share memories or express their grief.
“We’re taking this opportunity to really reflect on the tremendous gift that she was to our community,” said Reid Brown. “She was so skilled and passionate in her work, and really had a gift. The girls understood that she had a gift to share with them.”
Carlisle, a married mother of three, taught 600 students at the all girl Catholic school since 2008.…Continue Reading
MILLBOURNE, PA – Authorities are saying a 44-year-old woman, whose body was found in a Pennsylvania state park almost a week after being reported missing, committed suicide by inhaling helium gas.
A man contacted police on December 2 to report that he had returned home and was unable to find his girlfriend, Teresa Mastracola.
He’d last seen her that morning as she left for Delaware County Memorial Hospital where she worked as an imaging Equipment Specialist, and her co-workers reported that Mastracola never showed up for work that day.
Police did not immediately treat the woman’s disappearance as suspicious because Mastracola, a Master Sergeant with the National Guard, was an avid hiker and would often spend days out in the woods. But this past Saturday, her body was found in a heavily wooded area deep in Ridley Creek State Park.
Authorities have not released all the details surrounding her death, but are confident foul play was not involved, and that the woman had committed suicide. Coroner Frederic Hellman listed her cause of death as chemical asphyxia from helium inhalation.…Continue Reading
