The teen was at the Colaw Gym with his mother last Thursday night. His mother noticed 24-year-old Betsy Ann Brashear flirting with her son and told her to stop and asked other members there to keep an eye on them as she went to work out.
Later, someone at the gym informed the mother that he just watched her son and Brashear enter one of the tanning booths together. The mother started banging on the booth and her son opened the door. Brashear was also inside the booth and trying to hide, but the boy’s mother dragged her ass out of the booth.
When she noticed that Brashear was naked from the waist down, wearing only a sports bra, so she allowed her to return back inside the tanning booth because there were men watching the entire incident.

Police were called to Claudio-Marrero’s home after his estranged wife’s current boyfriend, Larry Turner, called them with concerns for her safety. He told them that Sreymon Claudio had dropped him off at a nearby fast-food restaurant so that she could go to her husband’s house and confront him about some jewelry of hers he had pawned. She went alone because she did not want her husband to know of her relationship with Turner.
Turner grew increasingly concerned when Claudio had not returned a few hours later, so he took a cab to Claudio-Marrero’s home. He waited in the cab for 45-minutes, calling police after watching Claudio-Marrero walk out of the home, search for something in his vehicle, and then go back inside.
When police arrived, it took Claudio-Marrero fifteen minutes to come out. When he did, police observed his hands had fresh cuts and were bleeding. When police searched inside the home they would find Claudio’s dead body in an upstairs bathtub.…Continue Reading

Orlando, FL - Yeah, we knew that was coming. Defense attorney Jose Baez has written a new book, Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, in which he posits that (surprise!) Casey Anthony is a nutjob. Can I get a “well, DUH,” up in here?
In case you’ve been living in an Amish family (or a cave), Casey Anthony is the mother of Caylee Marie Anthony, the adorable toddler who was reported missing on July 15, 2008. Caylee had actually been missing since June 9 of the same year, and was found dead several months later, duct tape wrapped around her skull, a creepy heart sticker over what remained of her mouth.
Casey was charged and acquitted of first-degree murder in one of the great travesties and tragedies of the Florida judicial system last year. The case broke our servers and doubled our membership, and there may have been a pizza incident that landed us on Fox News, so, y’know, it’s close to my heart.
Now, Casey’s defense attorney is just gonna keep on defending his client, yammering on about how no sane person does the things that Casey did.…Continue Reading
CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA – A man has been charged with attempted murder after he tried to strangle his 3-month-old baby to death in a Walmart parking lot.
Daniel Graf, 32, was at the Walmart on Friday night to meet his estranged wife and visit his daughter. The couple eventually got into an argument over custody arrangements that led to Graf’s wife calling police.
Graf got angry with the responding officer and began walking away with his daughter. Graf then threatened to kill the baby and began strangling her. Realizing the infant was in danger, the officer decided to show Graf the proper way to choke the life out of someone by placing him in a carotid restraint control hold.
“It’s a tactic where the officer applies pressure to both sides of the carotid artery on the neck that will render and individual briefly unconscious,” said Jon Kempf from Citrus Heights Police.
What Kempf is trying to say is that the officer placed Graf in the Sleeper hold, an effective choke-hold I liked to employ on my ex-wife during sex, and before her lawyers got involved.…Continue Reading
BURLINGTON, Vt. - A woman is dead after she purchased $5 worth of gas at a Vermont gas station, then used it to set herself on fire.
According to a clerk at the Champlain Farms Shell gas station, the woman came into the store and prepaid for the gas. She also placed her I.D. on the counter and said she didn’t need it any longer. When she went back out to the pumps where her gold Subaru Forester was sitting, the store employees watched as the woman removed the hose from the gas pump and began dousing herself with gasoline.
Probably because women do this all the time, the store manager immediately shut off the pump from inside the store. But the employees quickly realized this wasn’t another case of a woman not knowing how to put the doohickey into the whatchamacallit when the woman struck a match and set herself on fire.
The store manager and some customers ran out and tried to put the woman out with fire extinguishers, but the woman had already achieved her goal of self-immolation.…Continue Reading
Waco, TX – Seems like whenever there is a story about some drug-addled moron eating anything alive, the news affiliates throw in the word “zombie” in an attempt to ride out that Miami Zombie Train. A story out of Texas is no different where a man, allegedly under the effects of K-2, attacked some people before beating a dog to death and then eating on the dog’s corpse.
Police say they received a call from someone reporting a man “going crazy.” The man going crazy was 22-year-old Michael Terron Daniel and he was reportedly suffering a bad trip from ingesting K-2, the synthetic drug idiots take because they can’t find weed.
Witnesses say that after attacking several people at the home, telling them that the K-2 was killing him, he ran into the yard and started chasing a neighbor on his hands and knees while barking like a dog. Daniel then grabbed a medium-sized black dog and brought it onto the front porch where he beat and strangled the animal before he “began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away,” Waco police Sgt.…Continue Reading
BELLEFONTE, Pa. - I’ve pretty much stayed away from the Jerry Sandusky updates because he’s everywhere already and there really wasn’t much more we could add. But some news outlets are reporting today that while he was being housed in Centre County Correctional Facility awaiting his trial, the inmates there would taunt him by singing songs to him.
As everyone knows by now, the 68-year-old tickle monster was once the assistant football coach for Penn State. He was charged with raping young boys over a 15 years period, seemingly unhindered, and possibly after once being caught with his dick in the proverbial cookie jar. His trial wrapped up the other day and the jury found him guilty of 45 of the 48 charges against him.
Sandusky is now back in Centre County Correctional Facility waiting to be sentenced and an inmate there says the last time Sandusky was visiting, the inmates taunted him by singing Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall.
“At night, we were singing ‘Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone,’ ” an inmate named “Josh” said.…Continue Reading
MAINE TOWNSHIP, Ill. – Reports are that last week an 18-month-old girl in Illinois lost a fingertip to the family’s pet piranha.
The girl’s mother said she heard her daughter crying and found her with a bleeding finger that was missing the tip. At first she thought the family’s pit bull may have been the culprit, because you know, it’s a pit bull.She would learn this was not the case after 911 was called and the girl was rushed to the hospital.
The doctor who examined the girl said her injury could not have come from the 65-pound dog, but the culprit could have been one of the two piranhas swimming in a tank near where the girl had been playing. Authorities called the girl’s father, who was still at home, and informed them of their suspicions.
Without hesitation, the father plunged his hand in the tank, snagged one of the fish and cut it open. There, inside the piranha, was his daughter’s missing fingertip. The upset father delivered the piece to the doctors, who attempted to re-attach it to his daughter.…Continue Reading
According to police, the boy and his siblings, ages 8, 10 and 12, were home alone when a strange woman rang the doorbell that afternoon. The teen later told police he didn’t answer the door because he didn’t recognize the woman.
A short time later, the teen heard someone banging on the door. He gathered his siblings and rushed them upstairs, stopping to retrieve a handgun from his parent’s bedroom.
As the boy stood at the top of the stairs, he saw a man break through the front door and aim a gun at him. Before the intruder could get a shot off the kid fired, effectively altering the intruder’s plans.

DELTONA, Fla. – I’ll be honest. I’m only posting this story because of the mugshot. The details surrounding the moments before it was taken do not stray far from you average “drunken idiot resisting arrest” story we are all familiar with.
Police say they found the man pictured, 29-year-old Kelsey Smith, sitting inside a running Audi that was parked at an intersection. Officers noticed the smell of alcohol, Smith’s slurred speech and sporting eyes that resembled a pair of freshly f*cked assholes.
They ordered Smith out of the vehicle to participate in some field sobriety tests, but he refused and was Tased in the leg.
“The Taser cycle was basically ineffective, and Smith continued resisting,” the police report said.
When police tried to put handcuffs on Smith, he became physically combative and was Tased a second time. Finally secured, Smith repeatedly banged his head and face on the roof of the police car, causing his nose to bleed. Smith continued being combative and started spitting blood at the officers, so a hobble was placed on his legs and a spit hood over his face.…Continue Reading
That creepy looking clown you see to your left is Sondance the Clown, otherwise known as 47-year-old Thomas Morgan. He got himself arrested after police searched his home and found child pornography on his computer.
Police obtained the search warrant after noticing someone using his Internet service provider account to download copious amounts of the stuff via a file-sharing program. Police say the amount of child porn they found on this clown’s computer was quite substantial.
“There was enough material on there that it would take them at least two or three weeks to go through all of it so there’s a lot of images,” said Cpl. Steven Dooly with Fort Smith Police.
Over on the Sondance the Clown website, Morgan states that he has spent 20 years perfecting his craft and is trained to work with children.…Continue Reading
Scott Flood, aka Karate Scott, is a karate instructor contracted to teach karate to children in at least three Arizona schools. But police say that Flood wasn’t just empowering children with the ability to possibly protect themselves, they say he was also preying on them.
Flood was arrested on Friday and is currently in jail on two counts of child molestation after a 5-year-old girl at Childtime Learning Centers told police that Flood touched her vagina over her clothes on multiple occasions and then told her not to tell anyone.
It was later revealed that Flood seems to find trouble when he is around children. Back in 1999, police wanted to charge Flood with “furnishing obscene materials to minors,” but the investigation was dropped after the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office decided there wasn’t enough probable cause.
Then, in 2010, a 5-year-old girl at Sunrise Preschool told her mother that Flood said she was “gorgeous” and “a real cutie pie.” The police report went on to say that Flood kissed the girl on the cheek during karate class and “tickled her butt crack.” These accusations, even if true, did not meet the requirements for a child molestation charge so police tried to charge Flood with aggravated assault. But once again, the investigation was dropped after the city attorney said a conviction would be nearly impossible.…Continue Reading
Jeremy Penny was working in a Tulsa field with his father and brother when he spotted 35-year-old Kalvin Hulvey taking off with his 1997 Buick LeSabre. Penny and his father, who both do rodeo work, immediately jumped into a truck and chased after Hulvey, eventually catching up to him at an intersection.
Penny, who stands 6-foot-5-inches and weighs 240-pounds, reached in and yanked Hulvey’s ass out of his car before his father proceeded to hog-tie Hulvey and suspend him from a nearby fence.
“I rodeo, we both rodeo,” said Penny. “But here lately, I’ve been having bad luck keeping calves tied, so he did the tying up. That way we made sure he stayed tied.”
And that’s where Hulvey stayed until police arrived and arrested him. Hulvey, who has prior felony convictions of burglary and possession of a controlled drug, was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle and is in jail on a $10,000 bond.…Continue Reading
Statesville, NC – A woman has been charged with neglect after the mentally handicapped woman she was hired to care for was left alone on a back porch for hours, and was found eating garbage.
Whitney Hill, 24, was arrested on Monday after she left a mentally disabled woman alone on her back porch for seven hours. Neighbors called police after noticing the handicapped woman had been left alone the porch and was observed eating garbage that included a dirty diaper.
Speaking of chowing down on a full diaper, anyone else remember the simple joy of being handed a bowl of leftover brownie mix when you were a kid? I still like cleaning the bowl whenever I make brownies–no need to let that weed go to waste–but it just isn’t the same.
Anyway, when police arrived at the apartment and spoke with Hill’s boyfriend, they learned Hill was spending the day with a friend. Hill was employed by M & M of the Carolinas to care for the woman, but was not authorized to take the woman from the home.…Continue Reading
Miami, FL – Another story in the news today that includes an x-ray of an object piercing straight through someone’s skull.
In this incident, 16-year-old Yasser Lopez was preparing to go fishing with a friend when a spear gun his friend was packing accidentally discharged. The three-foot spear entered above Lopez’s left eye and lodged in his head–after passing completely through his brain.
“It was about one inch above his right eye straight through,” said trauma surgeon Dr. George Garcia. “You could feel the tip under the skin on the posterior part of the skull.”
The miraculous thing is that Lopez did not die immediately, but somehow the spear missed every major blood vessel in his brain. The teen also got lucky in that the spear went through the right side of the brain, the side that does not control speech.
But surviving a spear to the brain without dying is only part of the issue. the other part is doctor’s being able to remove the damn thing without killing Yasser or causing him more serious injuries.…Continue Reading
Shiner, TX – This isn’t too surprising, but a grand jury in Texas ruled that the father who caught a man molesting his young daughter was within his rights to beat that man to death.
On Tuesday, a Lavaca County grand jury decided not to indict the 23-year-old father who beat 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores to death after he caught Flores in the act of raping his 5-year-old daughter. Prosecutors said the grand jury agreed with police, in that the father was within his rights to protect his daughter with deadly force, after they reviewed evidence that included the father’s 911 call.
The father and her daughter were on their family’s rural farm having a barbecue when someone witnessed Flores, a casual acquaintance of the father’s family, forcibly carrying the father’s daughter to a secluded area near a barn. After being informed, the father ran towards his daughter’s screams and found Flores in the process of sexually assaulting her. The father pulled Flores away and delivered a series of blows to Flores’s head that proved fatal.
In the 911 call the father made after the beating, you can hear a man who was absolutely frantic and trying everything he could do to save Flores.…Continue Reading
FORT WAYNE, Ind. – I got an update on 39-year-old Mike Plumadore, the man charged with murdering and dismembering 9-year-old Aliahna Lemmon last year.
On Monday, a judge sentenced Plumadore to life behind bars. Plumadore plead guilty to the murder last month and saved himself from the Pancuronium bromide and Potassium chloride cocktail he so richly deserves.
A few days before last Christmas, Plumadore was babysitting Aliahna and her 6-year-old sisters because their mother was sick. They all lived in the same trailer park and Plumadore was a trusted family friend who had cared for Aliahna’s dying grandfather who passed away a few weeks earlier.
Plumadore said that the next morning he woke up and found Aliahna missing. This would turn out to be partly true as cops would find the girl’s hands, feet and head inside Plumadores’ freezer. The rest of her was found in garbage bags at a nearby gas station. An autopsy report would reveal the girl had died from blunt force trauma and suffocation.
Plumadore was charged with Aliahna’s murder and prosecutors were going for the death penalty.…Continue Reading
CHARLOTTE, NC – Police have arrested 33-year-old Regina Terry after they say she threw a pan of hot grease on her neighbors this past Sunday, burning two adults and four children.
Neighbors say that Terry has had an ongoing dispute with her neighbors, the McLean family. The altercations never turned physical, and usually consisted of them yelling at each other. But this past Sunday, Terry skipped past simple assault and went straight to assault with a deadly weapon and malicious maiming.
After Terry and the McLeans got into another argument, the McLean family–two adult sisters and their children, ages 10, 8, 6, and 22 months–were on the phone with police when Terry threw hot grease from a pan inside the McLean’s apartment.
Everyone in the McLean family was burned in some fashion. Four of the victims were taken to Chapel Hill burn center. One of the adults and her 22-month-old son suffered injuries so bad that they had to be airlifted. Two others were treated at a local hospital while another refused treatment.
One of their neighbor described the children’s reactions.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – If you have been on this site for any amount of time, then you have heard of Hugh Howey or may even know him. We recently reviewed his Amazon Bestseller, the Wool Omnibus, and now I eagerly await his next book, a zombie book titled I, ZOMBIE.
I can hear some of you complain, “Ah, man… another zombie book?” Yeah, it is indeed a saturated market at the moment. The public really love their zombies. But let me tell you why this is my most anticipated book. I, ZOMBIE will detail a zombie outbreak from the viewpoint of multiple characters. But unlike the plethora of other zombie books out there, these tales will not be told by a group of survivors, it will be told from the zombies themselves.
Imagine that you have been turned into a zombie and have found yourself in your infant’s room. No hope for the poor kid as you reach into his crib and then lift his soft belly up to your mouth and begin chewing.…Continue Reading
