In The Mean Time...
SAINT LOUIS, MO – Adrienne Martin, the 37-year-old accused of setting a dog on fire after it allegedly bit her son, has had all charges dropped against her.
In July 2013, Martin was charged with two felony counts of animal abuse after she allegedly set a relative’s 3-year-old terrier mix on fire. The burns to the dog, named Brownie, were so severe that it had to be euthanized.
A witness told police he saw flames come from where the dog was chained to the back fence of the owner’s home and saw a man with a gas tank and Martin, the sister-in-law of the dog’s owner, with a lighter. The witness even picked Martin out of a photo lineup.
A quick check of Martin’s Facebook page was also very telling. One post the day before Brownie was set on fire read “I’m on killa mode…#killdogs.com…today.” On the day Brownie was burned, a post was tagged with “#alldogsdontgotoheaven.com.” After the incident made the news, Martin posted: “MF’s is killin me about this stupid dog…keep it real…you didn’t take care nor like or love the MF…on the TV str8 lies.”
After she was picked up and interviewed by police, Martin admitted to setting the dog on fire because Brownie had bitten her son the day before.…
SILVER SPRING SHORES, FL – Tayvon Alexander and his girlfriend have been arrested after a 3-year-old boy was found with possible rib and facial fractures, as well as severe bruising to his face and torso.
With his arrest on Sunday in Marion County for charges of aggravated child abuse after his alleged treatment of a three-year-old child, I’m thinking 23-year-old Tayon L. Alexander has used up his 15 minutes of fame. (And God help us all: Florida? AGAIN?)
Based on Alexander’s many Facebook selfies and the subsequently unsubstantiated report that “Well loox like i got the part az a model forreal. they payin 4 the flight up 2 new york and i can make a retainer of $10,000 a month. loox like im gonna b livin it the fukk up now!!!!!!”(Translation: “Well, it looks like I got the part as a model. They’re paying for the flight up to New York, and I can make a retainer of $10,000 a month. Looks like I’m going to be living a nice lifestyle!”), I’m guessing Alexander believes his supposed 5’6″ 138-pound physique alone (c’mon, we have to rule out his writing abilities, don’t we?) is going to shoot him into the Kardashian-ist stratosphere.…
According to reports, the victim went to police this month to report what had happened to her. She said that she got pregnant after being raped raped by a family member in August 2012. She did not report the crime at the time because she was ’embarrassed’.
Five months later her family could see that she was pregnant. They feared other children in the home would be removed if CPS investigated the details surrounding the girl’s pregnancy, so they decided to hide the crime.
Plan A involved 45-year-old Sharon Jones reportedly giving the girl multiple doses of birth control pills, emergency contraception pills and cinnamon tablets. When none of these methods killed the baby, the family went to Plan B; beat the baby out of her.
The girl, along with a witness who went to the police station with her, told police that in the living room of Jones’ house, 25-year-old Cecilia McDonald held her arms down while Lonnell McDonald kicked and bounced up and down on her stomach.…
The stray pup was found with electrical tape wrapped tightly around her muzzle, her tongue trapped between her teeth. It is believed she had wandered around like that for at least two days before appearing on the doorstep of a good Samaritan.
Her story quickly went viral, and the picture that accompanied the article was enough to make a heartless wench like myself tear up a bit. The public was asked to help identify the idiot responsible, and an arrest was made earlier this week.
William Dodson, 41, was charged Monday with ill treatment of animals and torture. Dodson is being held pending a bond hearing, and police have yet to release a motive.
“Caitlyn is in a lot of pain, her condition is critical, and her prognosis is guarded,” said Dr. Lucy Fuller, Charleston Animal Society’s senior director of veterinary care. “A large part of her tongue may need to be removed surgically if the tissue dies from the lack of blood flow.…
Last Thursday, police responded to a Windsor Locks Motel 6 on a report of a woman acting erratically. Once they got to the scene, they found the unidentified woman had stripped naked and had smeared shit all over her body and inside the room.
When the woman opened the door and saw the cops standing there, she tried slamming it shut before running out of the room while screaming “shoot me, shoot me” at the officers. They didn’t, and the dog carrying dookie-cicle ran inside a nearby Subway were she locked herself in the restroom.
Police tried to talk her out of the restroom but ultimately had to force their way inside and find the woman still holding her dog and violently kicking and flailing. She was reportedly delusional and incoherent, repeatedly asked officers to shoot her, and had the small dog’s body squeezed between her legs.…
JOHANNESBURG – An American was mauled to death at a Johannesburg safari park after a lion reportedly dragged her out of a car.
Sources say a man and woman had their vehicle’s windows down as they were driving through a lion camp at the Lion Park, a popular safari park where “Super Close-Up Animal Views Guaranteed”.
A lion decided to take advantage of the open window and jumped through it. The lion attacked a woman in the car before dragging her out. Ambulances arrived on the scene quickly, but the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man survived the attack, but suffered serious injuries he received while trying to fight the cat off the woman.
Hopefully the park won’t be penalized, even though this is the third attack at the park in four months. But to be fair, in all cases, the people who were attacked were victims of their own lack of judgement.
An Australian tourist, who had his windows down, was attacked by a lion in March and suffered some nasty bite wounds to his legs and arm.…
MENTONE, AL – A small town in Alabama had its first homicide in 25 years after 22-year-old Tyler Blansit admitted he beat his mother to death with a baseball bat after arguing about grades.
When police first arrived at the home after receiving a 911 call from Blansit, a student at University of Alabama-Birmingham who had come home after the spring semester ended.
Blansit claimed that he and his mother had been attacked, and that he sustained scratches and a knot on the head. His mother, 45-year-old Sherry Blansit, was found dead in the backyard after someone used a baseball bat to cave her skull in.
When they got Blansit to the Sherriff’s Office to be interviewed, it wasn’t long before he admitted he was the one responsible for his other’s murder. He confessed to using the bat to beat the poor lady to death after they got into an argument over his college grades.
Blansit was arrested and charged with his mother’s murder. He’s currently in the DeKalb County Jail.…
AUBURN, ME – Three decades ago, 66-year-old John Lane was convicted of killing his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter by cooking her in an oven. Now a federal judge says that Lane should seek a new trial.
On the night of October 27, 1984, John Lane, then 37, was living with 30-year-old Cynthia Palmer and Palmer’s two daughters. 4-year-old Angela Palmer and 5-year-old Sarah.
That night, Lane beat and tortured Angela before forcing her into an oven and wedged a chair against the door so she could not get out. Lane then turned the heat up as high as it could go as Angela screamed, “Let me out, Daddy, let me out!”
It was the smell and smoke of Angela’s cooked body that eventually led police to the apartment and discover Angela’s smoldering body after tracing the source of the smoke and opening the oven.
Lane would end up charged with murder while Angela’s mother would be charged with manslaughter. She would later be acquitted because, according to her, she had overdosed the night of Angela’s murder and was not aware of what had happened.…
BAKER, FL – Nicole Parker, 30, was arrested for attempting to murder her husband by slitting his throat with a pocket knife.
Nicole Parker was in a truck driving around with her husband, 35-year-old Jerald Parker, and her ex-husband, when she and Jerald started arguing.
Jerald stopped to piss, at which point Nicole and her ex took off in the truck. Jerald walked home, making it there just before midnight. When get got there, Nicole and her ex were waiting and a fight started between Jerald and Nicole’s ex-husband.
During the fight, Nicole came up behind Jerald, pulled his head back with her left hand, and used a folding knife to slit his throat. As if that wasn’t enough, she then stabbed him under his left arm.
Jerald began bleeding, as one who has just had his throat slit by a crazy woman does, and Nicole then took off leaving Jerald to bleed to death.
Luckily for Jerald, his family was able to stop him from hemorrhaging by applying pressure to his wounds.…
Police responded to a 911 call from the little girl’s uncle. When they arrived they found the dead body of the child covered in bruises and weighing only 15lbs.
A thorough examination of the girl’s body revealed cuts and bruises all over her body in various stages of healing, a 1-inch laceration to her head that exposed her skull, a broken knee and evidence that she had been sexually assaulted.
The parents both deny causing the injuries, although Velazco does admit to punishing her with a belt but only using “measured strength” as to not knock down the child.
During an interview with Cruz, who only speaks Spanish, he denied any knowledge about Alexandra’s other injuries telling investigators to, “ask his wife” and “not knowing the truth” about how they happened. Cruz did admit that the daughter’s weight loss was concerning and started after she had a fall in the tub. …
ATHENS, PA – Police have charged Anthony Rockwell with two felony counts after he allegedly sexually assaulted two boys, ages 5 and 6, inside a church restroom and stuck a pill in each of their anuses.
According to reports, Rockwell approached three children playing at the His Majesty Church playground. Two women were outside the church at the time, painting the church exterior.
Although one of the women knew Rockwell from church, the other became concerned when she noticed Rockwell and the children were missing. When she went inside the church to look for them, she found that she was unable to open the restroom door.
Rockwell walked out when she was able to enter, and she saw one boy crying and another bent over naked. Her son told her that Rockwell had hurt him and the other boy. During her examination of the boys, she found a white pill in each of their asses and removed them.
Police were called and the two boys were taken to the hospital for treatment.…
According to police, Davis was a guest at a family cookout this past Sunday when the host’s daughter got pissed over Davis “taking the last rib from the kitchen.”
She ended up confronting Davis about her taking all the food out of the house. Davis responded by stabbing her in the left eye with a fork she’d been using to take meat from a pan.
Police were called to the cookout and would note in their report that the victim had two small lacerations on her left eyelid and that her eye was swollen and bloodshot.
Davis admitted to poking the woman in the eye, but told police it was in self-defense as the victim had come at her with a knife. A witness told police that this was true, but that the victim did not go after Davis with the knife until after she’d been forked in the eyeball.…
At around 9:45 Friday night, Lambert and some others were hanging out on the American River Bike Trail near Bannister Park, messing around with a handgun and a bulletproof vest.
At some point the group decided to test out the effectiveness of the vest, so 19-year-old Miguel Martinez agreed to put it on and allowed Lambert to shoot him. Their test results revealed the vest to be a tad lacking in the bulletproofing department.
“The bullet penetrated the top of his vest,” said Martinez’ brother, Tom Cline. “my brother was hit, my brother said he couldn’t breathe.”
Cline said that after the shooting, one girl ran for help while two guys tried carrying Martinez out of the woods. Police arrived on the scene but it was too late for Martinez, who would be pronounced dead at the hospital.
The sheriff’s department said the killing was unintentional but have charged Lambert with homicide and have booked him into Sacramento County Main Jail without bail.…
The incident happened at around 10:20 p.m. Friday while Chevelle were on stage. Kirchhoff, 24, and two of his friends were on the Aragon’s second-floor balcony when they went through a door that took them to a catwalk.
After watching the show for a bit from their new vantage point, Kirchoff’s friends noticed he was no longer with them. They went looking for him and found that he’d fallen about 6 to 8 feet and was impaled through the chest by two metal rods protruding from the floor.
Chevelle cut their performance short as first-responders arrived and attended to Kirchhoff., but he would be pronounced dead about 30 minutes later at Weiss Memorial Hospital.
The band would later post on their Facebook page, apologizing to their fans for cutting the show short and wishing Kirchoff a quick recovery.
“To our fans at the Chicago show: We are very sorry we had to end the show early.…
LA PLATA, MD — Here’s a morbid one out of Maryland where a mother was found by police at a park pushing her dead 3-year-old child in a swing.
According to the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, police responded to Wills Memorial Park at around 6:55 a.m. Friday after someone called to report a woman pushing a child in a swing for an unusually long time.
When officers got to the park, they found the 24-year-old woman pushing a kid in a swing and immediately noticed that the boy had been dead for several hours. The child showed no signs of trauma and officials say the woman and her son may have been at the park since the day before.
The boy was taken to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore where an autopsy will be performed while the mother was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Diane Richardson said: “We have a lot of work to do to try to figure out what happened to this child.…
On Last Friday, Treaster and her boyfriend arrived at the Mount Nittany Medical Center to treat injuries the elderly man had received after being assaulted. Police were called to the hospital where the man would tell them a person he did not know entered his home and assaulted him.
He was in the hospital for two days to treat lacerations to the head and finger that needed stitches, an injury to his genitals and a minor brain bleed. When he was released, he met with police at his home and told them who really kicked his ass.

He said he tried running from Treaster but she tackled him in the garage and climbed on top of him.…
MOUNT CLEMENS, MI – A jury has found Donna Scrivo, 61, guilty of the 2014 murder and dismemberment of her mentally ill, adult son.
On January 27th 2014, Donna Scrivo reported that her son, Ramsay Scrivo, 32, had not returned after leaving their St. Clair Shores home the day before.
Three days later five bags containing parts of his body, clothing and burnt papers were located on a country road. Included inside one of the bags was an electric saw that was used to dismember his body.

Throughout the trial Donna has maintained her innocence. She claimed she found an armed man in her son’s room who held her at gunpoint over a period of five days. She claimed the intruder killed her son and forced her into helping him dispose of the body.…
MEXICO – A 7-year-old boy playing near the Barra Santa Ana estuary was eaten alive by a crocodile in front of his horrified father.
It happened on Sunday afternoon as Manuel Abraham and his father played with a soccer ball at the edge of the river. After the ball rolled into the water, the boy instinctively ran to pick it up. That’s when the crocodile struck.
According to witnesses, the crocodile sprang from underneath the water and clamped down on the poor kid’s head. It then dragged him into the water in front of his helpless father and onlookers.
Despite attempts to rescue the boy, Abraham and the crocodile disappeared into the water. The boy’s remains have yet to be found, but not because of a lack of trying.
After the attack, city officials deployed the military, civil protection groups and fisherman to find the crocodile and the boy’s remains. This reaction probably stems from the fact that this was the eighth crocodile attack in the Bara Santa Ana estuary in the last two years.…
