The letter states that new DNA evidence has cleared the entire Ramsey family of any suspicion in the December 26, 1996 death of six-year-old JonBenet. …Continue Reading

Fox, 31, was playing croquet with his wife and sixteen-year-old stepson outside their mobile home.Â Â As game play was in progress, Fox and his stepson had a disagreement about rules, and a physical fight ensued. …Continue Reading
Hialeah Gardens, FL - Public shaming is all fine and good if you’re, say, making fun of the perp eyes on a pedophile, or telling the internet about the rat-bastard-ness of a babykiller. But when your ten year old son has a toileting accident due to full bathrooms, it’s a bad idea to take naked pictures of him with soiled underwear on his face and e-mail the pics to all your friends. Got that, Evelyn Rolong, you stupid bitch? …Continue Reading
Port St. Lucie, FL – Timothy J. Placko, 24, decided to go for a peaceful drive Sunday night. So he steered his Chevy Astro van to a wooded area south of N.W. North Torino Parkway and down a dirt trail. The low temp for Port St. Lucie yesterday was about 72 degrees–pretty pleasant. Maybe he was driving with his window down. If so, I bet he heard some wildlife, some nightbirds, the sound of the breeze rustling the leaves. Peaceful. Until the damn cops pulled him over.…Continue Reading
Lisa Reily and Jennifer Prokop
LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – Don’t let the sad look fool you. 37-year-old Lisa Reilly is a bitch. On July 2nd, Reilly passed a tractor trailer on the right and struck Jennifer Prokop, a 34-year-old pregnant mother of three, with her 2003 Ford Explorer. Prokop was thrown 70 feet and died at the scene. Reilly continued driving and pulled into a nearby gas station. She was confronted by the driver of the tractor trailer in the gas station parking lot, but Reilly denied it was her that hit the woman and that it was another red SUV. She then flipped off eyewitnesses at the gas station and drove off, passing by the crumpled body of Prokop. She drove home, parked the car in the garage and told her husband she had hit a tractor trailer.…Continue Reading

UPDATE 7/8/08 – A source tells me that Gonsoulin’s girlfriend, Guadalupe Diaz, was not home on Thursday, July 3, when most of the abuse occurred. Diaz returned home, saw Cameron, and called 911. Charges may still be brought against Diaz, since investigation has determined that she had knowledge of the abuse in the days prior to Thursday. Charges are also likely against Richard D’Ginto, the neighbor who witnessed some of the abuse.
Uncle Tony and Cameron
Apopka, FL – Cameron Palmer was six years old. He’ll never get any older. He won’t start school in August. He won’t play with his cousins, most of them with “C” names like his own. His parents, Heather and Jon, won’t see him again. Why? Because Cameron’s great-uncle Tony Gonsoulin brutally beat him to death last week. And while we’re at this little recount of justice gone awry, it should be noted that a neighbor witnessed Cameron being abused within hours or days of his death. And what do you think the neighbor did, denizens of the Demon?…Continue Reading
Mugshot Parade, L to R: 2002, December 2007, July 2008.
Lake Wales, FL – Nothing really says “I’m glad this bitch is not my mom” like Debra Crear Randall’s Parade of Mugshots. There’s the 2007 Expression Of Stoned Disdain mugshot. Then there’s last week’s Sorrow In Cornrows version. But my favorite is the 2002 You Done Messed Up My Hair mugshot. It’s descriptive without being overstated. It lends itself to a history of Prior Bad Acts. It’s kind of psycho, abusive mom without going all “oooh, she needs help.” That 2002 mugshot just says, “Wow, Tiera Crear, sorry your mom is a big ol’ bag of mean.” …Continue Reading
UPDATE – Chad took his sorry-ass to Mexico. He has been charged with three counts of murder and Mexican authorities have approved Huber’s extradition.

Lawrence “YEAH YOU KNOW IM SEXXY” Auler
Anderson, IN – On his MySpace profile, Lawrence Eugene Auler, 44, describes himself as having “A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR” and “SEXY LOOKS.” I have to question the accuracy of that, cuz he sure ain’t got sexy looks, and he also says he weighs 280 pounds. AS IF! I guess if he were going for accuracy, he’d say “FAT SLOB PREPUBESCENT GIRL MOLESTER.”
Lawrence says he’s separated from his wife of 16 years and is working a part-time temp job, which explains why he’s been living with some family acquaintances. Acquaintances who happen to have children. Acquaintances who allowed Lawrence to occasionally watch their children. Like, unattended.…Continue Reading

LEE COUNTY, Ga. â€“ I know this video is making the rounds everywhere, but goddamn I just had to get this one posted here as well. I PRAY this kid suffers greatly for this stunt. I mean, I did some really, really stupid shit in my day…but launching a baby in the air like that and then laughing? Wow.

As you can see in the picture above, Vereen got a shiny new pair of bracelets for his birthday! How very thoughtful of the Charleston PD. What did he do to deserve such bling?

Couty Alexander; Couty & Christa Alexander
Livingston Parish, LA â€“ On the surface, Couty Lamar Alexander looked like such a nice young man. Definitely a church-going young man. Back in 2004, he was part of team of youngsters who traveled to Jamaica to conduct Vacation Bible Schools. Afterward, he said, â€œIt was a wonderful mission field experience. The kids we worked with were great. I canâ€™t wait to go back and see the kids again.â€ Donâ€™t know if he got to return to Jamaica to see the kids again, but as of last week, he had a special child to think aboutâ€”his own. Married at the beginning of March, he and Christa Ann (nee Baker) were expecting a baby in December. Looking at the pictures of Christa on Coutyâ€™s MySpace, itâ€™s easy to imagine a dark-haired, fair-skinned baby with her motherâ€™s sweet face and smile. Itâ€™s also easy to imagine that baby growing up to conduct Vacation Bible Schools in another country just like Daddy did, since both Christa and Couty grew up in God-fearing homes and were active in their Missionary Baptist church.…Continue Reading

Philadelphia - At around 1 a.m. Sunday, a minivan pulled up to a house and parked. A man, woman and 4 children all got out, went inside and went to bed. Well, almost everyone. The couple left their 5-year-old niece in the locked vehicle where she stayed for 9 hours. Police were called around 10 a.m. about reports of a girl screaming.…Continue Reading

On Wednesday night, three teenagers beat Waters to death on one of these side streets.…Continue Reading
