Ormond Beach, FL - Osteopath Dr. Jerrold Ecklind, 37, likes to pretend to be a cop. But is he a serial killer? That’s what police are investigating, as some really weird events unfold around the genial geriatric specialist. Ecklind, 37, was pulled over last Sunday night. In his Mustang, he had a known prostitute named Gina Oslizlo, a pair of handcuffs, and three guns.Â Oh, and he’d told Oslizlo that he was a police officer. …Continue Reading
EL DORADO HILLS, CA – Trina Lynn Rodriguez, 30, is an after-school caregiver for students at Lake Forest Elementary School and Silva Valley Elementary School in El Dorado Hills.

But it looks like she may have “helped” five kids with much, much more. …Continue Reading
Marlbough, Mass. - You know those guys who never listen? Yeah, Jason Eberhardt is one of those guys. He was in court on Thursday to be arraigned on a charge of raping a seven-year-old.Â Despite the prosecutor’s request for a $10,000 cash bond, Judge Jonathan Brant decided to let Eberhardt just walk out of the courtroom – as long as he followed some simple instructions, like “don’t contact the victim.” So Eberhardt, 32, walked out of the courtroom and went to a pay phone, where he called the victim’s house. Twice. …Continue Reading

Putnam County, FL - Poor little Morgan Leppert. The blond, blue-eyed 15-year-old cutie has her name and image attached to an Amber Alert. Once upon a time she was just another Florida kid with her own MySpace, where she called herself “blue eyed devil” and posted an oh-so-original profile pic — Morgan with her lips pooched out, peering out from under big black shades, looking as cool as any 15-year-old girl on MySpace ever does, doing pretty much the exact same pose. …Continue Reading
Middletown, OH – As a caregiver for Griswold Special Care, Abena Afrakomah had the same client for two years: a 74-year-old woman who cannot speak. Afrakomah’s job was to provide in-home non-medical care for the elderly woman, including personal care and some housekeeping. But that’s not all that was going on in the client’s home.

Bluffton, SC - I wrote an article about Paul Danao just a few weeks ago and published it here. It got some traffic, but not a lot. Probably because the guy was definitely creepy and kind of gross, but he didn’t seem like more than your garden-variety psycho perv to most readers, I think. He’s the guy whose van had been towed and was at a storage facility when some bomb-making chemicals and kiddie porn were found inside.
Now, it looks like Paul Danao might be a whole lot creepier than anyone thought. …Continue Reading
Indianapolis, IN – Jessica Vasquez, who is all of 19 and a giant pain in the ass, beat the hell out of an 81-year-old woman yesterday. Vasquez thought that octogenarian Evelyn Page was driving too slowly, so she sped around Page, then slammed on her brakes. Nice work, gutterslag. Intimidating old people makes you feel big, huh? Except she didn’t stop there. Once Mrs. Page had stopped, Vasquez got out of her car, ran to Page’s door, and pulled the victim out of her car. Then Vasquez beat the living shit out of the poor lady. Vasquez beat Page mercilessly, and as Page tried to get away, Vasquez shoved her into two lanes of traffic. Oh yes she did. You may all get out your rocks and slingshots now, denizens, because it gets even hairier. …Continue Reading
Nashville, TN - Some of you might remember a story we did back in January about a guy named Jerald Hicks, who starved his children.

His two-year-old sister LaTarvia was also severely malnourished, but survived. Now the children’s mother and grandmother have been arrested and charged in connection with baby Jerald’s death. …Continue Reading

Liberty City, FL – This bitch makes my blood boil. Â Felicia Watkins, 37, doesn’t look like she misses any meals.Â Hell, she works as a high school lunch lady, so we know the bitch can cook.Â Â But apparently feeding her seven-year-old niece was more than this rotund pile of magenta-topped nastiness could handle.
Worse, she beat and tortured the little girl if the child tried to steal food. Â And even worse than that? The victim was living with Watkins because her own mother, Latressa Height, is awaiting trial in the murder of the child’s father, Larrie “Jazzy” Abernathy.Â Â Yeah, and you thought your day was going to shit. …Continue Reading

On Friday, Berne Amishman Andy Eicher was charged with felony incest and child molestation after one of his ten daughters told a neighbor that her father had been molesting her since she was five.

Aloha, OR – David Michael Schedin, 40, loves the Lord, a good button-up polo shirt, and juvenile girls.Â The part-time teacher atÂ Palace of Praise Academy in Aloha was arrested on Thursday after one of his students told her parents that Schedin had taken her to the Beaverton High School parking lot and sexually assaulted her.Â Â I guess the girl didn’t buy his “coming under male spiritual authority” doctrine.Â …Continue Reading
Waterville, Maine – Leroy Fuller, 66, is a registered sex offender with a record dating back to 1959.Â But since it’s pretty much a walking offense to feel up a kid in Maine, he’s done remarkably little time.Â In fact, for his last offense in 2004, Fuller got just 364 days – suspended.Â He walked on a charge of sexual misconduct with a child under the age of 14.Â Which is probably why he felt perfectly comfortable feeling up a six-year-old girl in a thrift store on Monday – twice. …Continue Reading
Sacramento, CA – Mauriel Mercado, 20, and her boyfriend Derek Garcia, 22, had some shopping to do Friday night. So they went to the mall, parked at Macy’s, and left Mercado’s two year old son in the car. With the windows up. For nearly an hour.

Bean Station, TN - But you gotta give him credit for trying. William Randall Crawford, 34, is the subject of a large-scale manhunt centered in Grainger County, Tennessee. Crawford is accused of going to his in-laws’ home in Bean Station on Saturday night and shooting, stabbing and biting five family members: his in-laws, his wife, and his two children. Fortunately, Crawford was unsuccessful – so far, all of his victims are alive. At this point, though, I would say that a family reconciliation seems unlikely. …Continue Reading
