SAN LEANDRO — Richard Styner is facing child porn and burglary charges after the 45-year-old San Leandro High School teacher accidentally showed a naked photo of himself to a classroom of students.
On April 16, Styner was teaching a computer class how to transfer pictures from electronic devices to a computer using his personal phone. During this demonstration, he accidentally displayed a naked picture of himself on the overhead projector, in full view of a class full of 14 to 18-year-old students.
“At first the reaction was that everybody was laughing because they thought it was a joke, but then when everybody realized that it was our teacher, Mr. Styner, that’s when everybody got quiet because they realized it was serious,” said one student who was the class when it happened.
Styner reported the incident to school officials, who placed Styner on leave. Everything may have ended there had the school not checked his school computer. A search of the computer resulted in 200 pornographic stories being found in a folder, along with some disturbing photos.…Continue Reading
FULLERTON, CA — Lester Huffmire and his wife, Petra Huffmire, have been accused of keeping two young female relatives malnourished and locked inside a nasty trailer for years while they played World of Warcraft all day.
It is being alleged that between May 21, 2010, and May 20, 2013, the couple lived in a mobile home at the Satellite Mobile Homes Estate and prevented the two girls, ages 5 and 10, from leaving the trailer for any reason, including attending school.
Police got involved after multiple calls from concerned neighbors. Grace McKee said she called officials more than once to report something weird was going on with her neighbors, the last time was 12 days ago. “I wish I had forced the issue years ago. They sorta said, ‘If you don’t see much, why should we come out?’ That sort of thing,” she said. “I wish I would have really, really insisted.”
Witness McKayla Smith said she briefly saw one of the girls as she stared at her through a window. …Continue Reading
NEW YORK, NY – A quick-thinking 10-year-old scared off two men during a home invasion by firing the gun one of the men dropped.
The two men showed up to the Brooklyn home Monday evening posing as Fedex delivery men. When two teenage sisters answered the door, the two men rushed in and forced the girls into the living room at gunpoint, instructing them to get on the floor.
When one of the men went to the second floor of the residence, the girls’ mother made a mad dash to 10-year-old son’s bedroom with the invader in hot pursuit. She managed to get in a bedroom and slam the door on the man’s hand, causing him him to drop his gun.
Her quick-thinking kid then picked up the man’s gun and fired a shot at him. The two men then fled the home, but not before taking a shot at the kid. No one was injured during the incident, and the men left empty-handed.
A neighbor said the family may have been targeted because they own a store and the home invaders, described as two black males in their ’20s, may have figured there was lots of cash inside.…Continue Reading
KANSAS CITY, MO. — Well would you look who’s back on Dreamin’ Demon. Some of you may not remember Carrie Waldo, but two years ago she and her husband were charged with felony child endangerment after their infant had seven fingers chewed of by a ferret.
When we last reported on the couple, they told police they were both asleep when their pet ferret started chewing off all of their 4-month-old boy’s fingers. By the time their son’s cries woke them up, he only had three fingers left; two thumbs and a pinkie. According to the couple, the ferret had never been aggressive towards their son before.
It would later be proven that the couple were lying through their teeth and had not even been home at the time of the attack. Phone records and GPS location documents proved the couple were away from their home while their infant screamed bloody murder while feeding the ferret.
The couple’s landlord would also debunk the couple’s claims of the ferret not being aggressive after telling them that four days before this incident, the Waldos wanted to give the ferret away after it had bitten their baby twice, but obviously ended up keeping it.…Continue Reading
LOUISVILLE, KY – Police have arrested 41-year-old Yolanda Pearson after six children walked inside a police station and showed them where she had beat them all with an extension cord.
According to the arrest warrant, Pearson got angry with the children after coming home and finding a washcloth on the floor of the bathroom. She allegedly got an extension cord and used it to whip two 10-year-olds, an 11-year-old, two 12-year-olds and one 14-year-old.
After the punishment, all six of the children walked to a police station together to make a report of abuse, police say. The children were sporting injuries, so police took photographs of visible loop marks on their arms, legs and back.
Pearson is the legal guardian of all the children, some of them telling police Pearson was either their mother, or their aunt. Pearson was arrested and charged with five counts of criminal child abuse, and one count of assault.
Neighbors said the children were only seen outside of the home when they were doing yard work or coming home from school.…Continue Reading
Richmond, VA – Shavaughn Robinson has been accused of giving birth to a baby girl while at work, and then tossing the infant into a dumpster “like common household trash.”
Robinson was working in the Lee Medical Building as a massage therapist last week when she went into the bathroom and gave birth to a baby girl. Robinson put her daughter in a bathroom trash can, covered her with paper towels, tied the trash bag closed and tossed it in a dumpster behind the building.
A cleaning crew says they saw the 27-year-old cleaning up blood in the bathroom, but say Robinson told them she was having stomach problems. Police were not called until later that evening, after a janitor found the dead baby in the dumpster.
The medical examiner has ruled that the baby died of asphyxiation, and police have classified the baby’s death as a homicide. Robinson has only been charged with concealment of a dead body at this point, but more charges are likely. While in court the other day, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Janae Craddock asked the judge that Robinson be held without bond as she was considered a flight risk.…Continue Reading

Somewhere – The FBI is asking for the public’s help in identifying two women in connection to child porn circulating online of a seven-year-old girl being sexually abused.
Investigators have released images of the two women they have labelled ‘Jane Doe 25′ and ‘Jane Doe 26.’ They feel finding these women can lead them to the young victim and her male abuser. “These are not even individuals who are involved in the abuse to our knowledge,” said Laura Eimiller from the FBI. “They’re clues that are taken from the images and video of real child pornography.”
‘Jane Doe 25′ is described as a white female, likely between the ages of 18 and 25, with dark hair and a wing tattoo covering most of her back. ‘Jane Doe 26′ is described as a possibly Hispanic female, likely between the ages of 25 and 35, with dark hair and brown eyes.
Authorities have been aware of the images since August 2012, and they continue to circulate on child pornography sites. “The images in the video are very graphic.…Continue Reading
BANGOR, ME —Earlier this month we reported that 20-year-old Kyle Dube had been charged with the murder of 15-year-old Nichole Cable. Yesterday an affidavit reveals that Nichole died after Kyle intended to kidnap Nichole, hide her and then find her so he could be deemed a hero. Unfortunately for Nichole, Kyle is an idiot who accidentally killed her in the process.
Nichole went missing on Mother’s Day after leaving her home to meet someone she had met on Facebook named Bryan Butterfield. A week later, after receiving information from several sources, police found Nicole’s dead body in a wooded area. The following day, Kyle Dube was charged with intentional and knowing murder.

Turns out Kyle had made sexual advances towards Nichole, but Nichole had turned him down. Kyle then created a fake Facebook profile using someone else’s identity and began communicating online with Nichole.…Continue Reading
