In The Mean Time...
Police say that early Saturday morning, 33-year-old Benjamin Batterham found 34-year-old Ricky Slater had broken into the home he shares with his young family.
The confrontation turned physical and spilled out into the street as Batterham and a friend fought with Slater and detained him at the scene until police arrived.
Slater was found unconscious at the scene and was taken to the hospital in critical condition. His family says Slater suffered a broken neck. Batterham was also taken to the hospital suffering from facial injuries, and later charged with recklessly inflicting grievous bodily harm.
That charge was upgraded to a charge of murder after Slater’s life support was turned off on Sunday morning. Batterham turned himself in to police and is still in jail after being refused bail. Under New South Wales law, a person is not responsible for an offense if a “reasonable response” was used while acting in self-defense.…
According to a Humane Society press release, the biker discovered the dog hanging from a tree on the Department of Natural Resources’ property. The dog had been asphyxiated by being hanged from a branch with her feet barely touching the ground. Further evidence showed she was severely sexually assaulted while being restrained.
The Humane Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever raped and killed the dog. This reward is double the usual amount offered by the organization because one of their board members chipped in some of their own money.
“This is a truly horrific situation in all aspects,” said the humane society’s Washington director, Dan Paul. “To think about the suffering this dog experienced in her final moments, as well as knowing there’s an individual or individuals in our state who would perpetrate this type of abuse, is sickening.…
“It looks like this guy went on this website and was reviewing the website to see who is out there, who wants to go on dates,” said Sgt. Marvin Jones. “And then he set them up to rob them and sexually assault them.”
Withers met his first victim, a 37-year-old man, who he carjacked at gunpoint. The man was able to run from the scene and report the incident to police. Two hours later, Withers used the app to meet a 30-year-old man who he forced into the car before robbing and sexually assaulting him. The victim was forced from the car and was able to flag down a police officer.
Four hours later, Wither met another man using Jack’d and followed the same pattern.…
WALTON COUNTY, GA – A genius shooting at a lawnmower stuffed with explosives blew off one of his legs, and the incident was captured on video.
Before I go on, the explosives the man was using is called Tannerite. It is often used with shooters in small amounts because when it is hit by a bullet, it will create a small explosion.
The manufacturer recommends using about 1/2 a pound but, as you can imagine, people often use a shitload more and like to stuff it into things to blow up – things like vehicles, wild hogs, and even barns.
In this case, 32-year-old David Pressley and his friends decided to load three pounds of Tannerite in an old lawnmower.
As you can see in the following video, Pressley takes multiple shots at the lawnmower with a rifle before he finally triggers an explosion. The resulting blast sent debris flying, and Pressley lost his left leg below the knee in the process.
Pressley’s friends used a tourniquet around his leg and drove him to a nearby road where EMS met the group and he was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.…
According to reports, police were initially investigating a sexual battery case involving Johns and her boyfriend, Kurtz Villavicencio.
When police interviewed Villavicencio, he denied assaulting Johns and produced a cell phone video she had sent him.
In the video, Johns could be seen engaging in oral sex with two pet dogs. She also texted her boyfriend images of the encounter, and the two talked about her having sex with a yet a third dog.
Instead of arresting Villavicencio, police arrested Johns on three counts of engaging in sexual conduct with an animal. She was placed in the Collier County Jail but later released after posting her $6,000 bond.
Don’t look so down, Johns. So now everyone knows you enjoy some red rocket. Hopefully you can find some solace knowing you’re not the only one who got busted sucking on it.
Last Thursday, Hatcher walked to a neighbor’s house and informed them she had placed her 2-year-old daughter inside her family’s oven and needed help with her daughter’s injuries.
The girl was flown by air ambulance to the Parkland Burn Center in Dallas where, according to a GoFundMe page, she is suffering from second and third degree burns across 60 percent of her body. Hatcher was arrested and charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury. She is currently being held on $3000,000 bond.
According to a Texas Child Protective Agency spokesperson, the girl will be placed in foster care once she is released from the hospital. The girl’s uncle said that he and other family members are not being allowed to have contact with the girl.
This is par for the course in regards to Hatcher’s children. She reportedly has a history of drug abuse and that her 7-year-old son was previously removed from her custody by Child Protective Services.…
Robert Ritchie says he returned home from work Tuesday night to find Anna had already given 4-year-old Austin Cooper a bath and put him to bed.
The following morning he called 911 after finding his son unresponsive in his bed and not breathing.
“I think my son’s died,” Ritchie can be heard telling the dispatcher. “He got into a hot bath last night with my wife and she thought [unintelligible] OK. So, he said he wanted to go lay down in bed.”
Austin was taken to Atrium Medical Center where his death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy revealed the little boy had died from third-degree burns to his legs.
Anna was initially arrested and charged with child endangerment, but more charges are pending since she has reportedly admitted to dipping her stepson’s legs in a bathtub of scalding water as a punishment.…
According to reports, 27-year-old Giordanni Osse went to a home Monday night to retrieve clothing that belonged to a female acquaintance.
The three occupants inside – members of the Latin Kings street gang – were not happy to see him.
This could’ve been because Osse is a member of the rival Bloods gang, or because Osse may have broken into the home. That latter detail still isn’t clear but even if he had, Nassau Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said what happened next did not fit the criteria of “reasonable” self-defense.
The home’s three occupants – Johnathan Faneytt, 21; Jesus Maldonado, 22; and Jorge Freire-Romero – punched, kicked and hit Osse in the head with a handgun. They then handcuffed Osse and placed in a bathtub where he was stabbed 12 times with a steak knife.
Police say Osse was then tied to a chair for hours and beat “within inches of his life.” Afterwards, Osse was put in a car and dumped on a street three miles away without his shoes or pants.…
SYRACUSE, NY – Man, oh man. Do I have a twisted one for you this morning. A father has admitted to catfishing his daughter for nude pictures that he would later use as blackmail material to molest her.
Back in 2013, a 41-year-old man created a handful of social media accounts pretending to be a 16-year-old boy. He used this account to communicate with his 14-year-old daughter and used the account to enter into an online relationship with her.
Throughout the relationship, the boyfriend constantly asked for the girl to send him nude pictures of herself. She initially resisted, but eventually sent him sexually explicit images of herself, totally unaware she was actually sending them to her own father.
The girl grew tired of the relationship and tried to break up with the boy, explaining she was looking for someone interested in more than just sex. Her father, posing as the teenage boy, responded to this breakup by asking for more nudes. When she denied his request, he resorted in blackmailing her using the previous pictures she’d sent him.…
According to Russian news outlets, 23-year-old Aleksandr U. was once the member of the punk rock band the Easy Riders. His bandmates kicked him out after learning he had a tendency to dress in women’s clothing.
One night in July of last year, Aleksandr had some friends over to the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, 22-year-old Viktoria V. According to reports, Aleksandr partaked in some alcohol and some bath salts – a drug we here at DD are familiar with – and lost his freaking mind.
After his friends left, Aleksandr attacked Viktoria with a knife, stabbing and cutting her more than 53 times in the chest, neck and lower extremities. He eventually decapitated Viktoria and, while wearing one of her dresses, performed sexual acts with her severed head.
As for a motive, investigators think that Viktoria was trying to break up with him after discovering he was wearing her makeup and clothing.…
Early Sunday morning, an unidentified man walked into a 7-11 wearing a mask and wielding a hatchet. He reportedly said nothing to the clerk behind the counter or the customers in the store when he began swinging his weapon.
“What everybody says is that he didn’t say anything. He just walked in the store, had the hatchet, and started attacking people,” King County PIO Cindi West said.
The man first swung the hatchet at a customer before going behind the counter and attacking a 58-year-old convenience store employee. What the attacker probably did not expect was that one of the customers in the store is a regular, and he has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
The 60-year-old man, who comes to the store every morning to get coffee and talk with the employees, pulled out a handgun and shot the man as he was attacking the employee.…
Sometime in January, the body of Robert Bank was found in some woods in Sumter County. It would later be revealed that the man had been brutally beaten to death before being burned.
After an extensive investigation into the man’s death, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced the arrest of three brothers, their father and a friend in connection with Bank’s murder. Anthony, Nathan and Brian Johnson, have been charged with first-degree murder, along with their friend, Michael Gunn. Brian Johnson Sr. is being charged with helping his sons dispose of Banks’ body.
According to reports, a the men invited Banks to hang out after a female friend told them that Banks had raped her. Once there, the men handed out some vicious justice based on the woman’s claims.
“They proceeded to beat Robert viciously,” Judd said. “They kicked him, strangled him with an electrical cord.…
Rafael McCloud, 33, escaped from the Warren County jail where he was awaiting trial for the kidnap, rape and murder of 69-year-old Sharen Wilson.
Wilson’s body was found outside an abandoned hospital last year after a group of ghost hunters followed a blood trail out of the building. McCloud was quickly arrested after he was found driving Wilson’s car.
He’s been in jail awaiting his trial ever since, until March 2 when he escaped his cell by taking a jail guard hostage with a homemade shank and forced the guard to give him his clothes.
McCloud was able to escape the building and police have been scouring the area looking for him. It took a week, but police finally found McCloud – shot to death in a family’s bathtub.
At around 4:30 a.m. Thursday, a man went out to his garage to start his wife’s car and encountered McCloud.…
According to reports, 31-year-old Jamie Gilt was driving down the road when her son found a handgun in the backseat. The boy fired the gun and the bullet traveled through the back of the driver’s seat and entered Gilt’s back.
Gilt pulled over and was noticed by a passing police officer who stopped to offer assistance. Gilt was taken to a hospital in stable condition and her son was placed with family members. The Department of Children and Families has been contacted but, at this time, the shooting is being investigated as accidental.
However, Capt. Joseph Wells said investigators are trying to determine how the boy got his hands on the gun and if he was fastened to his booster seat at the time of the shooting.
“There was a booster seat in the back of the vehicle, but however the boy was not strapped in when the deputy got to them,” Wells said.…
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Dashcam footage of 43-year-old Colleen Loughman’s drunk driving arrest shows that Dean Vernon Wormer was right; fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life – especially when you have a 2-year-old child.
According to reports, Loughman had driven several miles down I-95 without a tire before stopping in the emergency lane.
When a trooper stopped to see if she needed assistance, he noted her breath smelled of alcohol, her speech was slurred, and her eyes looked like to freshly fucked assholes.
Inside her vehicle, the trooper found Loughman’s 2-year-old sleeping in his car seat in a vehicle littered with paperwork, open food containers and spilled yogurt.
At first Loughman treats the entire encounter as a joke, even waving at the officer’s dashcam. But her demeanor quickly changes after she fails the officer’s sobriety check and is told she is being arrested for drunk driving.
“Please don’t arrest me! Please!” Loughman can be heard screaming as police try putting her in handcuffs. “I’m going to call CNN!…
On June 17, Whitcomb was pulled over for running a red light and found with a small amount of marijuana. She was arrested and placed in the Iosco County Jail, then released the next day on her own recognizance.
Two days later, Whitcomb showed up at the McLaren Bay Region hospital emergency room stating she had been sexually assaulted by the officer.
She claimed that after she was stopped, the officer handcuffed her, slammed her against his patrol vehicle, then touch her inappropriately with his open palm. She also claimed the officer slammed her head on a K-9 cage when he put her in the back of his vehicle.
Hospital staff called police to relay Whitcomb’s story. A nurse told the responding trooper that while Whitcomb did have some bruising to her scalp and thigh, the injuries were too old to have happened during the incident with the police officer.…
WASHINGTON PARISH, LA – Dean Kelly, former model remembered from an Aerosmith music video, has been charged with trying to hire a hitman to take care of the people who sent him to prison for sex crimes.
Some of you old-timers may remember Kelly from Aerosmith’s “Crazy” video – the one that launched the career of Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler, while also being responsible for the Hand Lotion Shortage of 1993.
In the video, Kelly plays the nose-picking tractor driver who goes skinny-dipping with the young ladies. I have no idea what the hell Kelly has been up to since then, but he was recently charged with forcible rape, felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, second-degree kidnapping and possession of child pornography after being accused of raping a 14-year-old girl in February 2005 and a 17-year-old later that same year.
In 2013, Kelly plead guilty to the lesser crimes of sexual battery and felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile. As part of the plea deal, Kelly received a 10-year suspended prison sentence if he successfully completed five years of probation.…
COLESHILL, UK – Brandon Walker, 19, has been sentenced to 18-months in youth custody after he placed a sewing needle in a co-workers drinking straw, sending her to the hospital to have the needle removed from her throat.
The incident happened two years ago where Walker and the woman both worked at Shustoke Farm Barns, a local wedding venue. Walker, described as being a “loud, cocky and boisterous” practical joker, can be seen in CCTV footage playing with the woman’s straw shortly before she took a drink.
The woman ended up sucking the needle through the straw where it became stuck in her throat. She immediately began retching and coughing up blood-stained bile. Unable to talk, she was rushed to the emergency room where doctors would locate the needle and remove it. She was discharged the next day.
Walker initially denied placing the needle in his co-worker’s straw, but his lawyer would eventually tell the courts that her client has admitted to the deed and was “very ashamed” of what he did.…
