OZARK, AL – After a four day manhunt, police have captured 44-year-old David Pitts, the man accused of raping a woman and her 8-year-old daughter at knife-point.
Pitts was arrested at a Boynton Beach, Florida hospital without incident after the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that he was being treated there.
Four days earlier, Pitts fled from Ozark, Alabama after he was accused of raping a 30-year-old woman and her 8-year-old daughter. The woman said Pitts lived nearby, but was inside her home when she arrived with her daughter Thursday evening.

COLUSA, CA — Here’s a nice lesson for some of you parents out there: Never abduct a teenager to make him apologize for making your kid cry. A couple in California did it, and now they are facing kidnapping and false imprisonment charges.
Frances Sanapaw says her 13-year-old son, Nicholas, was playing near the river at Memorial Grove park with several other kids when he “accidentally” hurt the 6-year-old son of Rebecca and Jose Molina, making the young boy cry.
Witnesses say Rebecca Molina was not pleased with this. She reportedly snatched Nicholas by the shirt and started punching him before leaving the park to get her husband. When she and Jose returned, they chased Nicholas down and forced him into their minivan.
They then drove the teen to their home and forced him inside where they made him get on his knees and apologize to their 6-year-old for upsetting him. That’s about the time police showed up and took the couple into custody.
Rebecca and Jose are now in jail on kidnapping, false imprisonment and child cruelty charges.…
STAMFORD, CT – Police have arrested 39-year-old Leonel Rodriguez after they say he raped his 12-year-old daughter and got her pregnant.
On July 17, the girl’s mother took her to the doctor when she began complaining about cramps. It was soon revealed that the 12-year-old was preggers. The doctor notified the state Department of Children and Families, but the girl would not tell them who had knocked her up.
However, the girl did confide in a relative the next day, telling them that the father of her baby was also the baby’s grandfather. She told her aunt that her father had sexually abused her on several occasions and was the one who got her pregnant.
The relative called police, who immediately took Rodriguez into custody. They could only hold him for 48 hours, so police decided to interview the girl – along with her mother and her aunt – in hopes of getting her to repeat her statements.
They must have gotten the information they needed from the girl, because an arrest warrant was issued for Rodriguez on charges of sexual assault in the first degree and risk of injury to a minor.…
Last Thursday, Millsap took the family collie, “Penny” out for a walk but never returned home. Hours later, a couple jogging along the Macomb Orchard Trail found Penny standing guard over Millsap’s dead body, in a drainage ditch 15 to 20 feet off the trail.
“The dog protected the body, stayed with the body, actually moved in and out,” Armada Police Chief Howard Smith said. “They went by the dog the first time, thinking the dog may be coming after them. When they came back the other way on the trail and the dog was still there that made the people curious.”
Police have not released how Millsap was killed, but have said she was not stabbed or shot. They also stated detectives have interviewed relatives and Millsap’s boyfriend, “but they are not considered suspects in her death.”
Authorities are asking anyone who may have seen April on July 24 to call the state police tip line, 877 616-4677.…

Tom Greer said he came home Tuesday night to find a man and woman inside his home. Greer said they both tackled him and jumped on top of him before robbing his safe of thousands of dollars.
What the couple didn’t know was that Greer was not defenseless… he had a .22 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver in his pocket. The pair ran from the home when they saw Greer was armed, but the woman wasn’t quick enough.
After firing at her in an alley behind his house, Greer said the woman stumbled and then begged for her life. “She says, ‘Don’t shoot me, I’m pregnant! I’m going to have a baby!’ And I shot her anyway,” Greer said.

MIAMI, FL – Miguel Ruiz Lobo, 42, has been accused of killing 11-year-old Martha Guzman after the girl talked her mother into breaking up with him.
On June 22, Guzman was found dead inside the home she shared with her mother and three-year-old brother. Her neck and wrists had been slashed. Her death was originally believed to be a suicide since Guzman had a history of cutting, but autopsy results revealed her death was a homicide.
Focus quickly turned to Ruiz, the ex-boyfriend of Guzman’s mother. Ruiz used to live with the family, but Guzman’s mother had broken up with him five months ago at the urging of her daughter.
During their investigation, police noted Ruiz had fresh scratches on his arms and face, so they took a swab of his DNA and sent it off to be tested against fingernail scrapings collected from Guzman. He told police he had not seen the girl in days, but police had proof that was not true.
They had surveillance footage from a neighbor’s security camera that showed Ruiz entering Guzman’s apartment at approximately 10:28 A.M.…
ERIE, PA – Christopher Bisbee pleaded guilty Monday to beating his two cats to death with a golf club after one of the cats betrayed his trust.
Acting on a tip last June, Humane Society Animal Enforcement Officer Merle Wolfgang responded to Bisbee’s residence after someone there found the cats’ bodies in a trash can with “apparent trauma to their heads.”
Several people at the residence told Wolfgang that Bisbee, 32, was the person responsible. When interviewed, Bisbee admitted to killing the animals.
According to court records, Bisbee felt “betrayed” by the animals after one of them scratched him, so he responded by retrieving a golf club and using it to bash their brains in.
Investigators said Bisbee told them he “struck both cats numerous times with a golf club until they no longer were moving.”
Bisbee was charged with two counts of animal cruelty, but pleaded guilty to one second-degree misdemeanor count of cruelty to animals. The charge carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.…
FLINT, MI – Back in 2011, 23-year-old Donovan Haynes beat his toddler to death in an attempt to turn her into a lesbian. On Monday, a judge sentenced Haynes to 18 years and nine months in prison.
Ti’Airra Woodward was rushed to the hospital after the 2-year-old was found unresponsive in her mother’s basement. A medical examiner’s report indicated she died of internal bleeding from a lacerated liver caused by blunt force trauma to the abdomen.
There were also adult human bite marks all over the girl’s body.
Haynes was quickly taken into custody and would tell police that he only bit his daughter in the leg because she wet the bed. However, a pre-sentence investigation report claimed that Haynes beat the girl in an attempt to toughen her up and to turn her gay so she would avoid men like him.
Facing life behind bars on charges of open murder, first-degree murder and torture, Haynes eventually pleaded no contest to second-degree murder to avoid a trail which could have netted him 31 years in prison.…

EDWARDSVILLE, IL – Police in Illinois have accused 43-year-old Terry Davis of molesting a female Rottweiler puppy.
Davis is facing three counts of sexual misconduct, which seems to be par of this sex offender’s course. He has a record of sex offenses dating back to 2003.
He’s been convicted of criminal sexual abuse by use of force and has two convictions for failure to report a change of address as a registered sex offender.
These most recent charges claim that last October, Davis performed three different sexual acts with a female Rottweiler puppy, witnessed by Davis’ former roommate and the dogs owner.

Despite his lawyer telling the court that Davis suffers from anxiety and depression and has trouble sleeping and staying focused, he was found mentally fit to stand trial.
Now Davis is waiting to see if court officials decide he’s a sexually dangerous person.…
