CHICAGO IL — Police have arrested a 52-year-old woman after they say she killed her 7-month-old granddaughter by slitting the baby’s throat with a power saw.
Police were called to to a Little Village apartment Monday morning where they would find the body of Rose Herrera. The baby’s grandmother was also found after she attempted to kill herself.
Authorities say the woman was upset with the baby because it would not stop crying. So after trying to shove a cloth in the baby’s mouth in an attempt to get her to stop, she used a circular saw to cut the baby’s throat.
Charges are now pending against the woman who was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and in police custody. She is in stable condition and is expected to survive.
Neighbors who know the family are shocked at the news. One neighbor knows the woman taken into custody and cannot believe the woman did what she has been accused of.
“She was a nice person, she came to my house,” they said.…
HERE, NOW – Thanks again to everyone who turned out to Saturday night’s Pulpit of Doom Podcast. I may have been a bit too drunk as I don’t remember much aside from putting a bit too much thought into why that guy splooged in that girl’s face.
In case you missed it, I flew solo with my Kraken and discussed the top 10 terrible stories circulating the site for the week, including baby maracas, unwanted facials, teachers hanging around classrooms, shooting fish in a barrel, penis cakes, handicapped placards and those that abuse them, tag-team baby rape, angry teens being grounded by drunk drivers, and the ALS pit bull challenge.
We also revealed some more of the oddest search phrases that have landed people on the site, and spoke with Forensix, BostonBurns, and Totemic about a lot of stuff – including the New Orleans DD meetup. If you’d like to call in during future shows, you can do so at (704) 750-9928.
In October 2013, Norgren walked into his brother’s room and began babbling about nonsense. He then punched out a window, cutting his hand, and wandered outside. He was eventually discovered by a hunter in the woods, standing by the hunter’s ATV.
Norgren approached the hunter and wrestled away his rifle, then allegedly said, “Sasquatch kills the hunter.” Norgren then knocked the hunter unconscious by hitting him over the head with a rock. When the hunter came to, Norgren was on top of him trying to remove his arms.
“When Mr. McDonald was unconscious, Linus Norgren, with unspeakable violence, caused two fractured and dislocated arms,” the prosecutor told the jury. “He systematically and violently ripped Mr. McDonald’s arms out of his torso.”
Norgren then began strangling the hunter, shoved his fingers down the man’s throat and gouged his eyes.…
DUMONT, NJ – Students will return to Grant Elementary School this morning following the death of one of their classmates who jumped out of a classroom’s second-story window.
On Friday, around 20 fifth-graders and a lunch aide were in a classroom for lunch when the 10-year-old boy handed a note to a classmate he had been playing chess with.
He then walked over to an open window and, without saying a word to anyone, jumped out. The boy would die at the hospital from injuries he sustained from landing on a concrete sidewalk 25 feet below.
Officials have not released the boy’s name or the details contained in the note he handed his classmate. A law enforcement source did not describe it as a suicide note, but said suicide is one of the motives being investigated.
The boy hasn’t been at the school long, but another student said he fit in well and had lots of friends. Counselors have been made available for any students, parents or staff who need them.…
Marshall and 65-year-old Theodore Hubbell Jr. owned property next to each other off a dirt road in a rural subdivision call Bokeelia. Marshall and his wife had purchased the property with hopes of building a home with a shed there.
Hubbell was upset with Marshall for clear cutting parts of the property and covering over gopher tortoise burrows. In Florida, the gopher tortoise is listed as Threatened. Both the tortoise and its burrow are protected under state law. Gopher tortoises must be relocated before any land clearing or development takes place, and property owners must obtain permits from the FWC before capturing and relocating tortoises.
Hubbell explained this to Marshall and uncovered the buried burrows. Marshall was upset with this and contacted his attorney, Robert Harris, who instructed him to contact police to get a restraining order. Marshall did contact police but there isn’t a restraining order against Hubbell.…

Police said they became involved after the boy was taken to the hospital on Saturday suffering a seizure.
The boy was airlifted to Boston where doctors there found he was suffering from two skull fractures and 17 broken bones, from his ribs to his toes. Orta-Santana’s son had to be placed in a medically induced coma.
When questioned, Orta-Santana admitted to police that he had punched his son in the head several times on Saturday after becoming frustrated with him.
No word on if he admitted to breaking 6% of his son’s bones in the last three months, but investigators believe some of the boy’s injuries happened around the time he was born.
Jose Orta-Santana was arrested and charged with felony first- and second-degree assault. He is currently being held on a $100,000 bond.
“This is probably the most serious child abuse case that we’ve dealt with in a long, long time,” said Chief Kevin Cyr.…
DAVENPORT, FL – Victor Solano has been arrested after Polk County deputies say he hanged his dog from a tree for making a mess in his trailer.
Solano had initially asked his neighbors to borrow a gun so he could shoot the 18-month-old pit-bull for making the mess. This, as we all know, being the standard method of disciplining animals when they misbehave.
When neighbors refused to let the Solano have a loaded firearm, he tied a rope around the dog’s neck and hanged it from a tree, killing it. Solano then tied the rope to an ATV and dragged the dog to a local pond where he dumped the body.
Investigators were able to recover the dog’s body and delivered it to Polk County Animal Control. Solano was arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty and unlawful disposal of a dead domestic animal.
This isn’t Solano’s first brush with the law. He was released from prison in March 2013 and had been arrested on previous charges of burglary, larceny, carrying a concealed weapon, battery domestic violence, and violation of parole.…
COMSTOCK PARK, MI – Stevie Foehl and Michael Emory have been sentenced to life for raping a 1-year-old girl and filming it.
Police learned of a sexual relationship Michael Emory had with a 14-year-old girl who he met through an advertisement for babysitting services on Craigslist. During the statutory rape investigation police seized computers from the home these sick fucks shared. That’s when video was found of the couple taking turns raping a 1-year-old girl.
The girl’s mother says she has known Foehl since high school when Foehl became pregnant at 17. Foehl and Emory had a second child and would often babysit the little girl and her 5-year-old brother while their single mother was working and pursuing a college degree.
It was during this time that they admitted they took the child into a locked room and took turns violating her while the other filmed it. Their own children and the girl’s 5-year-old sibling were present outside the door while this was happening. Police believe she was assaulted on at least two occasions when she was in the couple’s care.…
According to the criminal complaint, the first incident happened in December when the teen woke up to find Pfeifer facing her while jacking off. He left the room immediately and did not touch her.
That same month, she woke up to, once again, find Pfeifer standing next to her bed masturbating. The teen asked Pfiefer what in the hell was he doing, to which Pfiefer left the bedroom without saying a word and went inside a hallway bathroom.
How there was ever a third incident I will never know, but in February the teen woke up to find Pfiefer standing over her bed basting his ham. Pfiefer’s girlfriend was in the same room and woke up to her younger sister’s screams and saw her boyfriend running out of the bedroom.
She told police that her younger sister was visibly upset and kept repeating “what do I do?” Possibly referring to the semen she saw on her sister’s face, hair and bedding.…
PRESCOTT, WI – Kari Milberg is facing three counts of homicide after police say the 34-year-old was chatting on Facebook while driving, moments before getting into a crash that killed her daughter and her two nieces.
In December 2013, Milberg was returning home from the Giggle Factory with her two children and two nieces when she lost control of her vehicle and slid into the path of an oncoming truck.
Her 11-year-old daughter, Lydia, was killed on impact. Milberg’s 5-year-old nieces, Laynie Jo Amos and Clara Pavek, would die at area hospitals.
Milberg was ejected from the vehicle and thrown down an embankment. However, she and her 3-year-old son, Easton, would survive along with the driver of the truck and his two passengers.
During their investigation, police would recover two cellphones inside the totaled vehicle. Milberg’s undamaged iPhone wasn’t found until almost four months later after the snow had melted, and would be one of the factors leading to her now facing criminal charges.
Wisconsin State Patrol determined bad tires and driver inattention to be a large contributing factors in the collision.…

GRAFTON, ND – Police have accused 23-year-old Jordan Nelson of locking four young children in a dog cage in the basement of their home, and feeding one of the kids dog food.
Court documents say the children, ages 5 to 9, were being held under “terrorizing conditions.”
More specifically, Nelson, who is in a relationship with the children’s biological mother, would punish the children by placing them in the dog cage in the basement and turning off the light.
Nelson is also accused of making one of the kids eat dog food, which made him throw up. When police interviewed the children, one of them drew a picture of himself in the kennel with the words “help me.”
Police did not note if the child wanted help because they were in a kennel or because they were in North Dakota.
Nelson was arrested and has been charged with four counts of felony abuse and neglect of a child and felonious restraint. She’s since been released on bond and ordered to stay away from the children.…
Jacobson was a popular photography instructor who had taught at the school for the last eight years. When some of her students tried to get inside her classroom they found the door was locked.
This was not normal for that time of day, so the students found another teacher who unlocked the door. That’s when they found Jacobson hanging from the ceiling. The teacher removed Jacobson and 911 was called.
