Truxton, NY – Four children and three adults were killed Wednesday when their minivan was hit by a trailer carrying crushed cars on Route 13 in Truxton, New York.
The accident happened around 6 p.m. after a trailer carrying around 20 crushed cars broke free from a truck travelling on Route 13. The runaway trailer struck a minivan, ripping it apart, and killing seven members of two families.
The names of the deceased are 26-year-old Teresa Bush and her two daughters, 4-year-old Alexis and 5-year-old Jasmine. Also killed were 21-year-old Lena Beckwith, 24-year-old Carino Vanorden, 7-year-old Alyssa Mead and 4-year-old Tyler Mead. The father of the two Mead children, Shawn Mead, was transported to Upstate University Hospital where he was in good condition.
First assistant fire chief Ken Stone said a couple of victims were under the trailer when help arrived. The trailer had to be jacked up to get them out. “It was all instant, no doubt,” Stone said. He added that responders were deeply affected by the crash.…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.
At the time we first reported on this, there were not a lot of details regarding the relationship between Kyle and Nichole. The information in the affidavit fills in some of those blanks. 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
In 1990, Carroll was living in a halfway house after serving time in prison for lewd conduct with two children. Living next door was Christine, her mother and her stepfather. On Oct. 30, 1990 after Christine’s mother left for work, Carroll raped and strangled the poor girl in her own bed while her stepfather slept.
Carroll’s last meal consisted of sunny-side-up eggs with bacon and sliced tomatoes, biscuits, avocados, a fruit salad of strawberries, papaya, peaches and pineapple and canned milk. He declined to make a final statement, but Christine’s mother, Julie McGowen, issued one: “Thank you to all that have worked so hard, and justice for all, namely, Christine McGowen. Rest in peace.”
The Catholic Diocese of Orlando held a service just before Carroll’s execution, praying for the abolition of the death penalty. “It’s a destructive tool rather than a preventive tool,” Bishop John Noonan said to the 30 people who attended.…Continue Reading
Cape Coral, FL – Police were called to Lisa Velez’s home on Sunday evening after she was found living with her two autistic children, one legally an adult and one a minor, in total and complete squalor.
They may have been called there by Velez’s estranged husband, who had returned to the home after being gone for over a year. He found Velez and his two autistic daughters living with eight cats inside a home littered with a bevy of cats, feces, trash, old food boxes, ants, spiders, vomit, roaches and general nastiness. There were even animal carcasses on the back patio.
It could have been her neighbors who have long suspected something wasn’t right inside the home. “I would come out at 10:30 at night and she’s out there, her daughter out there running around the street, yelling at every car over 30 miles an hour,” a neighbor said.
It may have even been DCF, who hav been investigating Velez for two years. They had visited the home previously and had instructed Velez to clean up the living conditions for her kids.…Continue Reading
MADISONVILLE, TX – Police have arrested nine people in connection to the gang rape of a 16-year-old girl, while two other suspects are still on the run.
The alleged rape happened in March when someone was paid to bring the victim to a trailer with the promise of drugs. Once at the trailer, the girl was given meth, and then 11 men took turns raping her.
“Once the sexual assault began, what our intel is telling us is that they started making phone calls and texting people, and more people ended up coming to the house to, unfortunately, take their turn,” said Lt. Jonathan Zitzmann.
After taking a ride on the rape train, the girl was introduced to two women. One threatened the victim with a gun and the other hit her several times over the head with a tire iron.
Instead of keeping quite, the victim told her mother about the gang rape that night but was so messed up from the drugs that she couldn’t give police many details.…Continue Reading
“Mr. Briones was observed to be having sexual intercourse with the passenger and sped off… at a high rate of speed,” the police officer wrote in a criminal complaint. “Their activities presented a danger to others in the roadway as exhibited by the accident.”
Police said that after Briones sped off, he crashed his 2006 Ford Explorer into another car after running a red light. The resulting collision ejected his female passenger from the vehicle. She was found on the ground, naked, and suffering from deep cuts to her face and hands.
Witnesses stated Briones was obviously drunk when he exited his vehicle and eventually tried to drive away from the scene, leaving the naked woman behind. When one of the witnesses took the keys from the ignition, Briones ran off and hid behind a nearby cactus wearing one shoe and with his shorts on inside-out.…Continue Reading
BEL AIR, MD - Stephanie Mikles, a 45-year-old behavioral specialist for Harford County Schools, has been accused of having sex with the family dog.
Police found out about the alleged sexual liaison during an investigation by the child advocacy center of Harford County that began last year. No word on what that investigation was about, but during a search of her home, investigators found pictures and video of Mikles having sex with the family dog.
The encounters took place from August 1 to August 31, 2008. Unfortunately for her, there is no statute of limitations for bestiality in Maryland. So after dousing their eyeballs with bleach, officers arrested
the dog Mikles and charged her with bestiality. She was later released from jail on a five thousand dollar bond.
Recently, a grand jury puked in their shoes after being required to look at footage of Mikles getting knotted by the pooch. They ended up indicting her with “unnatural or perverted sexual practice.” Mikles’ attorney told reporters that she is fighting the charge and has filed motions to dismiss the case.…Continue Reading
Queens, NY – Last week, 12-year-old Gabrielle Molina was found hanging in her room, dead from an apparent suicide. Now police have confirmed what others had been saying since the news broke – she killed herself because she was being bullied.
Molina’s body was discovered by her 15-year-old sister in their bedroom at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. As is usually the case when young people kill themselves, accusations of bullying were immediate. Friends and family say that Molina was the target of bullying both online and in person.
Her father George told the New York Post that his daughter was called a slut, whore and told she looked like she suffered from Down syndrome. There was even a video posted on Youtube called “Gabby’s Fight” that showed Molina in a fight with a former friend. Molina’s father said that these events, plus a recent breakup, pushed her over the edge.
“I was trying to comfort her because she was getting weak,” said her father. “I wanted to make her happy.” Her older sister said that while her parents knew of the bullying, even going to the school to complain about it, they did not know the full extent.…Continue Reading
New Zealand – Ana Eriepa is recovering in the hospital after the 37-year-old was kidnapped by her boyfriend and then dragged down the highway after escaping from the trunk of a car.
According to police, Eriepa left with her new boyfriend, 27-year-old Sonny Te Aramoana Waiti, to buy a new Subaru. Not a lot of details on what happened after the car was purchased, but at some point Waiti placed Eriepa in the trunk of her new car and then took off down the highway.
Eriepa managed to unlock the trunk of the car as it was speeding down the highway but her escape turned pear-shaped after her leg somehow managed to get stuck while climbing out. This resulted in her being dragged for a mile at a high rate of speed.
Onlookers described the scene as horrific, stating Eriepa’s body was “bouncing up and down, like a dummy.” Others said she resembled a bag of trash, or a sack of meat, more than she resembled a human being.
After finally falling free from the car, other motorists ran to help her.…Continue Reading
TACOMA, WA — Police have charged 25-year-old Tyler Deutsch with attempted murder after allegedly putting his 6-week-old daughter in the freezer to stop her from crying.
The infant’s 22-year-old mother called 911 on Saturday to report she’d left the infant in the care of her boyfriend but that when she returned, she witnessed Deutsch taking their infant daughter out of the freezer in their home.
Although the baby was unresponsive and had a temperature of 84 degrees when she was rushed to Tacoma’s Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, doctors expect the infant to recover.
According to Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer, Deutsch told sheriff’s deputies he wasn’t trying to kill his daughter, but had put the infant in the freezer to stop the girl from crying. She had been chillin’ in the ice box for about an hour.
“It was only a six-week-old kid – can’t do much other than cry – and from what we understand he wanted the baby to stop crying so he put the baby in the freezer,” Troyer said. …Continue Reading
West Point, UT - A 15-year-old boy in Utah has been arrested in connection with the stabbing deaths of his younger brothers, aged 4 and 10.
Last Wednesday, 15-year-old Aza Vidinhar was babysitting his two adopted brothers while his mother took the family’s three other children to a dance recital. When his mother returned at 7:35, she found the 4 year old dead and called 911. Presumably already overwhelmed at that point, she did not realize that her 10 year old was also dead in the home and thought he was also missing with the 15 year old. When officers arrived, they found the 10 year old dead in another part of the house.
Unable to find the 15 year old, police did not know if he was another victim or a suspect. He was found walking about five miles away from the home later that night with blood stains on his shirt. Once picked up, he was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and apparently he spoke “pretty bluntly” to investigators. …Continue Reading
Rough and Ready, CA - Christina Salinas’ husband says the only thing he regrets about his wife biting his penis, is that he called 911.
The incident happened last Sunday after Salinas and her her husband, Anthony Hill, got into an argument while drinking at the Penn Valley Rodeo. She wanted to stay and dance, but he wanted to go home. The argument escalated once the couple arrived at home when Salinas grabbed two kitchen knives.
That’s when Salinas’ ex-husband, who lives with the couple, talked her into dropping the knives. When Hill tried leaving the house and got her four kids into the car, Salinas ran out and attacked him. With her husband and ex-husband trying to hold Salinas down, she somehow managed to bite Hill’s penis and hand.
Hill called 911, but says now he regrets doing that as the couple routinely assault each other. “I’ve assaulted her before in arguments,” he stated. “We work it out.” The Sheriff’s department stated Hill told them that Salinas smacked her oldest daughter around, but Hill is claiming this isn’t true.…Continue Reading
George County Sheriff Dean Howell said they received an anonymous 911 call Tuesday night concerning a man who had set his dog on fire and was “going psycho while crazy on meth.”
According to police, when they arrived at Pierce’s residence, they found a small breed dog on fire and Pierce in his bedroom acting erratically. He told officers he “wanted to help the dog go to heaven.” Pierce has a rather odd definition for the word “help” as police say he doused the dog with a flammable liquid and then set it on fire.
I can only speculate he truly was on meth when his drug-addled brain felt this was a good idea, or people need to be real careful asking this guy for any kind of assistance in the future.
Surprisingly, the dog survived and was transported to the George County Animal Hospital. Aside from having the tip of its nose burned off, the dog may also lose its eyesight, ears, and a front leg.…Continue Reading
MOORE, OK – Two men were arrested Tuesday night, accused of looting from a Moore neighborhood hit by the EF-5 tornado that killed at least 24 people..
A homeowner called police after returning to his home to find two men going through the rubble of his house. When he asked what the hell they were doing, they stated they were searching for survivors. Unfortunately, they weren’t talking about human beings trapped underneath debris, they were talking about valuable items not destroyed by the tornado.
According to the homeowner who found the men in his house, he found some of his belongings in the suspects’ pockets. When police arrived at the scene, they found the men with a bag full of items the two had reportedly stolen from destroyed homes in the neighborhood.
Police have not identified the suspects at this time, much to many people’s dismay, but the video below shows both of them being arrested and sparked a long series of racists comments regarding their ethnicity. To combat the looting issue, the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner is working on a badge system that will issue badges to residents that allow them to enter neighborhoods damaged by the tornado.…Continue Reading
Charlotte, NC – A woman in North Carolina had her juvenile son arrested for allegedly stealing her Pop-Tarts.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the woman called police on Monday to report that her Pop-Tarts had been stolen from her home. She also told them that her son was the theif and that she wanted him arrested.
Since Charlotte’s crime rate is -6.7% lower in March than it was the same time last year, a bored police officer obliged and placed the kid under juvenile arrest. He’s been charged with larceny/misdemeanor and will appear in juvenile court.
One of the boy’s neighbors laughed when informed he’d been arrested for stealing his mother’s Pop-Tarts. “He seems real nice to me. I mean, he is real respectful,” said the neighbor. Another neighbor told reporters that the food in her house is there for her kids. “It would be nice if they asked, but they don’t. They are kids,” they said.
While the boy’s mother declined to comment, the arrest report stated the mother has been having ongoing discipline issues with her son, so she decided to use this incident to teach him a lesson.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – LAPD officer Miguel Schiappapietra, with six years on the force, has been charged with allegedly luring two girls under the age of 10 into his home and committing lewd acts with them.
Not a lot of details on this story, but Schiappapietra had just moved into his new home with his wife and three young children five weeks prior to his arrest on Saturday. It’s not known how Schiappapietra was able to lure the girls into his home, or how his actions were discovered.
Neighbor Tim Rossi told CBS reporters, “You know, having children of my own and knowing there are other children in this neighborhood…I had no idea it was going on down there. It’s very disturbing”. It’s particularly disturbing considering this man’s profession, but it wouldn’t be the first time a perv made the force.
In any event, he was booked and charged on Saturday at his home, and as of Monday evening was still being held on $100,000 bail. He has been placed on paid vacation, I mean, paid administrative leave, pending the results of both a criminal and internal affairs investigation.…Continue Reading
Las Vegas, NV – Jose Canseco, a former MLB player and convicted wife beater, is a suspect in a reported sexual assault. While no charges have been filed, Canseco took to his Twitter on Wednesday to inform his followers of the situation while also tweeting his accuser’s name, picture and telephone number.
It started with four posts he made on Twitter yesterday, starting with one at 1:15 that read: “Breaking news this is a first folks las vegas police were just at my house i have been charged with rape by a [removed] from las vegas”
Two more tweets follow in which he welcomes the media to this “drama filled event” and says he’s willing to take a polygraph test. The fourth read:”[name removed] told police that i drugged her and then raped her.hmmmmm.lets find out what really happened.”
Metro Sgt. John Sheahan confirmed part of Canseco’s announcement. “He’s being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, and that’s it,” Sheahan said. He also confirmed officers spoke with Canseco Wednesday morning and that Canseco agreed to an interview that has not taken place yet.…Continue Reading
Plainfield, NJ – A 55-year-old New Jersey woman is recovering in the hospital after being viciously attacked by two American bulldogs on Saturday.
The woman was walking down the street when the two 5-year-old dogs, named Max and Marley, escaped from an unlocked fence and began attacking her.
Most of the attack was captured on video and shows the woman on the ground trying to defend herself while the two dogs alternate biting her.
You can also see as the owner of the dogs, along with passerbys, try everything from hitting the dogs with sticks, honking horns, and physically drag the dogs away from the woman – to no avail
When police showed up to the scene, the dogs were still attacking the woman so the officers fired five shots, killing both dogs. Plainfield Police Captain Ed Santiago said he had no issues with the officers’ decision to act.
“The next bite of a dog like that could have been a jugular. It could have killed her,” he said. “They weren’t even paying attention to their owner.”
Neighbors said it wasn’t the first time the dogs had gotten loose.…Continue Reading
BANGOR, Maine – Police have charged 20-year-old Kyle Dube with the murder of Nichole Cable, the 15-year-old who has been missing since Mother’s Day.
According to the girl’s mother, Cable was last seen near her home before she went to meet Dube, whom she met through Facebook. Dozens of law enforcement officers, using aircraft and dogs, and hundreds of civilian volunteers, spent days searching for Cable.
On the Wednesday following her disappearance, Cable’s mother pleaded for her daughter’s return during a press conference.
“I would like to say, ‘Nichole, we love you and if you’re scared because you ran away — you’re not in trouble. It’s OK,’” Kristine Wiley said. “If somebody has her — I don’t care [what happened] — take her to a gas station or a park. I don’t know what else to say. I’m waiting for you to call me and I love you.”
The day after Cable was reported missing, Dube posted the following to his Facebook regarding his girlfriend, who is not Cable:
“OK so I don’t with the droma.…Continue Reading
