In The Mean Time...
HAYDEN, ID – Veronica Rutledge was inside a Walmart when she was accidentally shot and killed by her 2-year-old boy after he reached into her purse and her concealed gun fired.
The shooting occurred on Tuesday at around 10:20 a.m. as Rutledge, 29, was shopping with her son and three other children, said Kootenai County sheriff’s spokesman Stu Miller.
The boy was in a shopping cart when he reached into his mother’s purse and pulled out a small-caliber handgun. The gun fired once and Rutledge, who had a concealed weapons permit, was fatally struck.
“It appears to be a pretty tragic accident,” Miller said.
Rutledge’s husband showed up to the store shortly after the shooting. All of the children were taken to a relative’s house.
Rutledge’s father-in-law, Terry Rutledge, told The Associated Press that Rutledge “was a beautiful, young, loving mother” and was “not the least bit irresponsible.” I beg to differ.
Look, I’m all for people being able to carry a concealed firearm. Hell, I’m a concealed weapons permit holder myself.…
BROOKLYN, NY – Apollo Hernandez was out on bail on charges of raping a teen relative is back in jail after the 29-year-old became a suspect in the murder of his mother.
Hernandez was jailed earlier this year after he allegedly sexually assaulted a teen relative in 2008. He was released from jail after his father posted his $3,500 bail.
In regards to the sexual assault accusations, Hernandez told detectives “that this was a family matter and has been handled as a family matter.”
His mother, 48-year-old Ruth Maceira, was found Saturday with a deep cut to her throat inside her apartment. Hernandez became the prime suspect almost immediately.
Hernandez had a good reason for wanting to off his dear, old madre as she was a witness in his rape case. Sources say the alleged victim first reported the rape to her.
Hernandez was taken into custody, but refused to talk to police and asked for a lawyer. His father went to court and asked the judge to revoke his sons bail, explaining that his emotionally disturbed son “can be a danger to himself or others,” prosecutors said.…

Lakeland, Fl. – An Indiana couple visiting family in central Florida has been arrested after their 22-day-old daughter died from starvation in the car while they were at a Golden Corral.
On December 23, Lakeland police responded to a Golden Corral parking lot where they found 22-day-old Betsey Stephens dead inside a car.
The girl’s parents, 23-year-old Ruby Stephens and 48-year-old Roy Stephens, told police they had driven from Indiana to visit family. After checking into their hotel, the mother said she noticed the baby’s feet were cold so she put a blanket over her.
The couple then took Betsey, along with their two other children, ages 1 and 2, to meet family at a nearby Golden Corral. That’s where the mother said she checked Betsey again and called 911 when she found her unresponsive.
The following day, an autopsy would show Betsey had died from malnutrition through starvation – an extremely painful and prolonged death – and manner of death was homicide.
Betsey only weighed 4-pounds when she died; half the weight of a normal, healthy baby. …
KINGS MILL, OH – Leelah Alcorn, a 17-year-old transgender, committed suicide by walking in front of a tractor trailer and left a letter in which she explains her decision to kill herself while also blaming her Christian parents.
After Alcorn stepped in front of the truck on Sunday, her suicide note was posted to her Tumblr account. It begins with: “If you are reading this, it means that I have committed suicide and obviously failed to delete this post from my queue.”
The note goes on to explain how Alcorn identified as a girl as a child and didn’t realize what transgendered meant until she was 14. While getting support from friends, her parents weren’t too happy about it and had her seeing Christian therapists.
After her parents pulled her out of public school and took away her ability to get online, she became more depressed. After being allowed back online, she felt the arms that greeted her back were not that open. She states she is “never going to be happy” living the rest of her life as a lonely man and that each day is worse than the next.…
Toms River, NJ – James Crudup is facing attempted murder charges after the 44-year-old ran over his girlfriend several times in a gas station parking lot.
Crudup and his 35-year-old girlfriend pulled into a Hess parking lot and immediately got into a fight outside of his pickup truck. The fight, which started as a shouting match, escalated to the point that Crudup threw the woman to the ground and choked her out.
The woman was able to get up and run towards the gas pumps, at which point Crudup entered his 2000 Dodge Durango pickup and drove towards her. A Hess employee tried to push her out of the way, but the woman ended up pinned between the bumper of Crudup’s truck and the gas pumps.
Not being a man to half-ass the situation, Crudup ran her over as she was lying on the ground, crushing her legs and hitting the gas pumps again. In a final hurrah, he took the opportunity to run her ass over a third time as he fled the scene.…
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Police say that after 32-year-old Marisol Toribio was confronted by a Macy’s employee for shoplifting, she reached in her pants and then smeared shit in their face.
According to court documents, Toribio was confronted by a loss prevention employee after she got caught stealing. In response, she reached in her pants, wrangled a turd, and then smeared it on the security guard’s face.
As disgusting as that is, I can’t help but wonder if Toribio shit herself on the spot in a desperate attempt to get away, or did she preplan this and walk into the store fully loaded in case she had to do some face painting?
Either way, Toribio was arrested and is now facing charges of theft and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
This wouldn’t be the first person featured on DD that put their feces on someone else’s face. Back in 2011, a man was charged with assaulting a police officer after he spit his own shit into a police officer’s face.…
MADISON COUNTY, IN – Jarod Rebuck is behind bars after trying to give his pregnant girlfriend a Christmas miscarriage — one of the worst presents you can give a pregnant woman aside from lingerie.
The 25-year-old’s pregnant girlfriend called police on Christmas Day after she smelled a strange odor in a drink that Rebuck was very adamant about her ingesting.
Suspicious, the woman checked out Rebuck’s cell phone and found he’d been searching Google on “ways to cause a miscarriage.”
I found many ways to achieve a miscarriage via Gooogle, including cinnamon, dong quai and baseball bat — but Rebuck seemed to have settled on some clary sage oil that he purchased from an herbal supplement store.
The oil is commonly used to aid menstrual cramping and reduce stress, and sometimes used by women as a natural way to induce labor.
Police say Rebuck admitted that he had performed the Google searches and that he did put the oil in his girlfriend’s drink for the sole purpose of causing her to miscarry.…
LA PLATA COUNTY, CO — This colorful looking fellow, who most definitely smells like a penny, was arrested following the imprisonment and assault of a woman in her own home over a two day period.
Edward Venteroso was living on the property of Kristy Harris, who had a previous order of protection against Edward so it’s unclear why he was still “living” on her property. Going by his mugshot, I can only imagine it was in a cave or under a lean-to made of a big ass blue tarp.
On Tuesday, Venteroso allegedly entered Harris’ home and El-Kabonged her repeatedly about the head with a cast iron skillet. When Harris attempted to call 911 for help, Venteroso smashed her phone.
Police were eventually called to the home where they found a bloody and half-conscious Harris on her hands and knees, pleading for help. She was taking to the hospital and is being treated for blunt trauma to her head and ears as well as other multiple blunt injuries.
Venteroso was arrested on a charge of first-degree assault, violation of a protection order, false imprisonment and obstructing of telephone service.…
PARADISE TOWNSHIP, PA – Dustin Klopp has been accused of murdering his wife with an axe during an argument Christmas Eve, then taking their two young children to his parents to celebrate Christmas before calling police to confess.
According to reports, Klopp got into an argument his wife, 34-year-old Stephanie Kilhefner, in which he punched her in the face and cut her throat with a knife before bashing her head in with an ax.
Klopp then attempted to clean up the blood and dragged his wife’s body outside to a shed, stuffing her inside a large carrier bag. He then gathered his children, aged 2 and 5, to go to his parent’s house to celebrate Christmas. The children were at home during the attack but, luckily, did not witness the murder of their mother.
Klopp called police at 5:20pm on Christmas day and confessed to killing his wife the previous night and wanted to turn himself in. Police arrived at the house ten minutes later and located Kilhefner’s body inside the shed.…
PORTAGE, IN — Police are investigating the Christmas Day death of 40-year-old Eddie Cahill, allegedly at the jaws of Fat Boy, his 8-year-old pit bull.
Cahill’s wife, Blanca Rodriguez, returned home after visiting with family to find her husband dead in a pool of his own blood and Fat Boy with blood all over his mouth. Cahill was later determined to have died from severe blood loss from wounds to his face and arms.
Animal control officers had to use a Taser to subdue the dog, and later euthanized him at the request of the family. Rodriguez told the press that their two pit bulls were not vicious. One would sleep with the children, while the other would sleep with her husband and herself.
“I don’t want people to think bad of pit bulls,” said Cahill’s wife, while picking pieces of her husband out of the carpet. “It was a freak accident. He loved the dogs.”
According to police, however, Rodriguez told an officer at the scene that Fat Boy was known to be “violent and unpredictable” and she’d advised Cahill to have the dog put down before.…
The aforementioned juvenile apparently contacted police on Saturday to report that a white woman tried to “forcefully” remove his shoes and take them from him. She failed.
Based on the child’s description of the woman, police made contact with Chessly Brimberry. The arresting officer mentioned in his police report that Brimberry blew a .255 on a portable breathalyzer, and that she seemed kinda surprised, a little insulted, even, that she was being arrested for trying to take shoes from a kid. I mean, c’mon… it’s not like she was trying to steal his fucking candy.
While being booked, Brimberry reportedly told the arresting officer, “When I see you I will kill you.” This little spitfire also attempted to flee the premises, twice, but was stopped at the gate both times.
She was charged with public intimidation and attempted robbery, and ordered held on a $7,500 bond.…
Framingham, MA — I’ve been here at the Demon for a long, long time. So long, in fact, that it is difficult to find a story that actually makes me feel. But this one, well, this one made me tear up a bit.
According to police, Lindsay McNamara, 24, sauntered into the Framingham Police Department Friday, with a Dunkin’ Donuts box in her hands. She approached the lobby window, police say, and when the officer behind the glass asked how he could help her, McNamara reportedly declared it was “time to feed the pigs.”
She reached into the box, which apparently didn’t contain donuts, and grabbed a handful of raw bacon and sausage links. (Please, friends, pardon my hysterical sobbing). She then proceeded to throw the products at the window, while simultaneously smearing them on and around the glass.
McNamara was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and malicious destruction of property. Later that day, McNamara, who represented herself before the judge, reportedly said God told her to “go feed the pigs,” before claiming that the courts were allowing people to sell her.…
Last week, police served a search warrant on the home of Andrew Castro, 27, and his brother Levi Castro, 29, as a part of an investigation by the Will County State’s Attorney’s High Technology Crimes Unit.
Andrew Castro was charged with the dissemination of child pornography and possession of child pornography while Levi was charged with the possession of child pornography.
The brothers were in court the following weekend to face a judge and ended up being sent back to the Will County jail after their bonds were set at $2 million each.
That must have been a shitload of child porn to have a bond set that high, right? Possibly, but an investigator shed a bit more light on the brothers, and the horrendous plan they allegedly concocted that involved raping a baby.
The investigator testified at their bond hearing that the Castro brothers “discussed possibly kidnapping a child, a baby, sexually assaulting the baby and then killing, or disposing of the baby, and if the mother of the child got in the way, killing the mother.”
If convicted of their current charges, Andrew is looking at 30 years in prison while his brother is looking at a possible seven years behind bars.…
Belvoir was at the attraction with his 25-year-old daughter celebrating Christmas one day early because his daughter wanted to spend Christmas day with her boyfriend.
His daughter had already completed the rope course and watched as her father fell from the highest point of the course and landed on the cement floor 30-feet below.
Emergency responders administered CPR on Belvoir and rushed him to Dr. Phillips Hospital, but he would later die from his injuries.
No official word on what the major malfunction was, but reports say Belvoir was still in his harness when he landed and that the disconnect was from where the harness attached to the ride.
“He was still hooked on his harness, but the little thing that it goes into is what came out of. The actual ride piece itself. There’s little sliders,” said Lt. Lovetta Quinn-Henry of the Orlando Police Department.…
POTTSTOWN, PA – Police have arrested Iris Gibney after the 42-year-old married mother of three was caught with a mouth full of 17-year-old dick.
Last month, an Upper Pottsgrove Police officer was making his rounds when he noticed a car parked illegally in Hollenbach Park after closing.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, when the officer approached the car he saw a naked Gibney performing a sex act on a 17-year-old soccer player from Pottsgrove High School.
The teen admitted to the officer that he was in a sexual relationship with Gibney. He said he met her at a high school football game earlier this year when Gibney was volunteering as a “cheer mom” for her daughter’s cheerleading team.
Gibney allegedly told the officer, “I’ve never been in trouble before. I can’t believe I did this. I have three children of my own — I am so, so sorry.”
Police would later find that Gibney and the teen communicated through Twitter and a public chat room. They also found sexts from Gibney on the boy’s cell phone, along with several partially nude photos of Gibney that have not made it online.…
DAYTON, OH – Police said a man with a concealed weapon permit shot and killed 16-year-old Jawaad Jabbar after the teen showed a gun and tried to rob the man of his new Nike Air Jordans.
According to reports, Jabbar was with two friends at the Dayton Mall to buy a pair of the limited edition sneakers. When the teen found out the shop had sold out, he resorted to getting them another way.
He and his friends waited outside on the sidewalk until they spotted two men leaving the mall carrying the newly bought shoes they were seeking. Jabbar allegedly showed a gun to the men and demanded their merchandise.
“This was a random act of ‘I want something that person has and I’m going to take it from them by any means,'” said Miami Township, Ohio police Sgt. Jay Phares.
Unfortunately for Jabbar, he picked a man with a concealed weapon permit who was carrying a gun of his own. The man, who is not being identified at this time, pulled out his gun and shot Jabbar once in the torso.…
WAUSAU, WI – Jared Kreft is probably having a rough time this holiday season after he was accused of smoking marijuana before giving a horse a blowjob.
Kreft was arrested last Wednesday after deputies were sent to a barn, where they found the 30-year-old near a horse.
According to court documents, Kreft was wearing a face mask and blue wind pants with “holes cut in the groin and buttocks areas.” Deputies also found a marijuana pipe and a jar of petroleum jelly nearby.
Kreft admitted to the deputies that after viewing some “horse pornography” at home, he went to the barn and sucked the horse’s dick and pleasured the horse with his hand.
Police arrested Kreft and charged him with sexual gratification with an animal sex organ, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana as a repeat offender and bail jumping.
I found that first charge odd, as I guess that means in Wisconsin, you cannot pleasure yourself with an animal sex organ even if it isn’t attached to an animal?…
