In The Mean Time...
LITTLE ROCK, AR – Police in Arkansas have arrested a 14-year-old boy and charged him with the murder of his grandparents, who were found shot to death outside their home.
According to the Conway Police Department, police found the bodies of Robert Cogdell and his wife Patricia, both 66, after a co-worker of Robert’s called police when he failed to show up for work.
Police would go to the couple’s home and find their bodies in a tree line behind their home. Investigators believe they were killed Tuesday night and that Robert was shot inside the house while Patricia was shot in the garage. Their bodies were then dragged out to the backyard and dumped in the woods.
After speaking with family and friends, the teen was interviewed and subsequently arrested Wednesday evening. He’s currently being held at the Faulkner County Jail.
Family and friends say the the teen lived with his grandparents, adding that Robert and Patricia had custody of the teen. “This is the same grandson I know that he and Pat got custody of to raise, so what do you say to that?” said Jim Narey, who worked with Robert for more than 12 years.…
There are certain stories that, over the years, I have stayed away from – teachers fucking students and people leaving their kids in a hot car. After almost 5000 articles, I am just sick of writing them.
However, in the case of Peer, I am making an exception because, even after all of those articles, I can still be surprised at the level of stupidity some people manage to reach.
On July 4 , Peer and her two brothers walked into a Walmart, leaving her two-year-old daughter locked inside the car. In the sun. With the windows rolled up. On a sunny day that reached a high of 104 degrees.
Another shopper happened to walk by the car and saw the little girl sweating profusely in the backseat and called 911. Responding officers ended up smashing one of the car’s windows to get the girl out.…
The shooting happened 20 minutes into a showing of Trainwreck, when a dumbass in the audience started randomly shooting at approximately 75 other movie patrons. After he was finished, the unidentified coward committed suicide.
One of his victims died on the scene, while eight others were taken to local hospitals. One of those victims would later die from their injuries.
“We heard a loud pop we thought was a firecracker,” theatergoer Katie Domingue said. She then witnessed “an older white man” standing up and shooting down into the theater. “He wasn’t saying anything. I didn’t hear anybody screaming either,” Domingue said.
Police know the identity of the man, but have not released it to the press at this time. They say the shooting appears to be random, but are checking to see if he was connected to the victims in any way.…
BROKEN ARROW, OK – Not a lot of details on this one yet but police found five people dead in an Oklahoma residence, along with a teenage girl being treated for stab wounds, and have placed two teenage relatives in custody.
According to Broken Arrow police Sgt. Thomas Cooper, officers responded to the home around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday after receiving a 911 hangup call. Once inside the home they would find five people dead, both adults and juveniles, from stab wounds.
They would also find a 12- or 13-year-old girl suffering from multiple stab wounds, but still alive. She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Another juvenile was found in the home unharmed and is currently in state custody.
When police first entered the home, two teenagers – ages 16 and 18 – were seen running out the back door. Police would use a K9 unit to locate them on a trail behind the home and take them into custody.
Cooper said that the two teens and the victims were all related and lived in the home, and that the case is being considered a homicide investigation.…
HUMBLE, TX – A family in Texas came home to find their 8-month-old pit bull puppy dead inside their barbecue grill.
Cecelia Resendez said they had returned home from visiting family and immediately noticed something was wrong when they didn’t hear their puppy, Gema, barking upon their arrival.
When the family went into their backyard, they saw Gema’s legs sticking out from their backyard grill. The dog did not seem to be burned, but had several scratches and wounds to its legs and head.
Police still do not know exactly how the dog was killed, but one investigator thinks it may have been hit by a car and then stuffed into the grill. Police also said they may never know what happened as their are no security cameras in the area and the neighbors said they didn’t hear or see anything.
“I got her when she was a puppy and I’ve raised her,” Resendez said “If they can do that to a dog, imagine what they could do to a kid.…
LONDON – Sarah Sands, the 32-year-old woman facing a murder charge after admitting to stabbing her pedophile neighbor to death, was convicted of manslaughter.
Sands neighbor, 77-year-old Michael Pleasted, was a nasty peice of work. He was a convicted pedophile who had a history of sexually abusing young boys dating back to 1970.
He has been convicted of 24 sexual offences involving children but has only spent a little over six years total in jail. In the months before Sands gave him eight new holes to breathe from, he was facing new charges of molesting three other boys.
His trial was scheduled for this summer, and the prosecution was considering a third charge against him. That is until Sands saved everyone from a lot of time and money.
Remarkably, Pleasted was granted bail and allowed to return home while awaiting his trial. Sands, who lived across from Pleasted, wasn’t having any of it. On November 28 of last year, she drank two bottles of wine and then paid her neighbor a visit – with a kitchen knife, a hammer and and a wrench inside her purse.…
According to investigators, a realtor helping the couple sell their house stopped by on Sunday with some potential buyers. He found that the doors were locked and barricaded with furniture before hearing Agren crying for help in an upstairs bedroom.
The realtor broke into the house and made his way to the master bedroom where he discovered a gruesome scene. Agren was alive on the floor with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Her husband, 59-year-old Michael Jordan, and her son, 17-month-old Miles, were both lying dead on the bed.
Agren was taken to the hospital to treat her wound and would admit to police that she was the one who fatally shot her husband and son before turning the gun on herself. Police believe Agnes shot them two or three days before being found.
As for motive, it is looking like another case of postpartum depression.…
MAURY COUNTY, TN – Kenneth Faulkner was arrested after he allegedly beat the crap out of the man he accused of molesting his two young daughters, and is now looking at more time in jail than the man he beat up.
Faulker suspected his two daughter were being sexually abused by 67-year-old Thomas Williams, a man related to the children by marriage. So last December, he went to police with his suspicions.
The resulting investigation led to Williams being arrested in April and jailed on $2000 bond. In March, Williams was indicted by a grand jury on two charges of solicitation of a minor.
Last Thursday, Williams pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to three years probation and must register as a sex offender. While all this was happening inside the courthouse, Faulkner and his family were outside protesting.
As you can imagine, Faulkner was not too happy to learn the man he says molested his daughters “in every way” was not going to serve one day in jail.…
According the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Collins was riding a commercial zero-turn mower when her son, 2-year-old Zayden Collins, ran towards her and slipped in the wet grass.
Collins tried to shut off the mower before her son’s right foot slid underneath it, but she wasn’t quick enough and the blades ended up amputating the poor kid’s foot approximately three inches above the ankle.
Zayden was flown to Tampa General Hospital First where doctors were not able to re-attach his foot, despite first responders packing it in ice. Zayden has undergone two surgeries as of Sunday, according to family members, and doctors are checking for any possible nerve damage.
“He’s in more pain [Sunday] than he was [Saturday], so they have some medication running through him to help him out,” said Zayden’s uncle, Christopher Littlepage.
Collins is suffering some backlash from the social media peanut gallery regarding her decision to leave Zayden unsupervised.…
DETROIT, MI – Police in Detroit are looking for a group of men who are walking around gang raping women and forcing their boyfriends to watch the sexual assault.
At around 10 p.m. Thursday, three to six men cornered a 21-year-old woman and 22-year-old man as they walked together along McNichols Road.
The men forced the couple into a secluded alley by gunpoint and made them take off their clothes. They then proceeded to take turns raping the poor woman, forcing her boyfriend to watch.
After the sexual assault, the suspects left and the couple ran into a nearby liquor store half-naked to call for help.
A few hours later along the same stretch of road, a 19-year-old woman and 21-year-old man were approached by two to four men, one of whom is believed to be connected to the previous rape.
Following the same pattern as the incident earlier, the men forced the couple to strip and then took turns raping the woman, forcing her boyfriend to watch. Afterwards, the couple were robbed and told to run away.…
HERE, NOW – It’s that time again! For those of you not already running some kind of ad blocker on this site, you will notice that the main header ad, as well as the two ad placements in the sidebar, are now gone. Figured I would show I was being serious about removing ad revenue in favor of donations.
But that also means I am putting a lot of faith in you guys and gals; readers and the fans of the Dreamin’ Demon.
Over the last decade, I have remained pretty damned transparent when it comes to Dreamin’ Demon and how I run it. I never imagined when I started it that I would still be doing so over a decade later, with over 4600 articles written by myself alone.
I still consider it a hobby, and that is a big reason why Dreamin’ Demon barely generates enough money to pay to even being online. If I depended on it to put
drugs food on the table, I would have done shit a lot differently and made this a Baby Center site.…
Grodin got busted after he sent a message to a friend via Facebook, explaining that he was in love with the daughter of his ex-girlfriend, going as far as tell his friend about the size of the girl’s breasts and buttocks. The friend immediately contacted police.
When investigators interviewed the girl, she told them that while Grodin lived with her and her mother between April and June, he would use zip-ties to restrain her arms , gag her, then rape her while filming it.
“It is not believed the mother of the victim knew of these criminal acts. The mother is distraught and is working with law enforcement,” Swansea Police Chief Steve Johnson said, adding that both the mother and the victim are now in counseling.
On Thursday, Grodin was apprehended in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A search of his phone revealed numerous video clips and photos showing the girl engaged in sexual activities with Grodin.…
WEST VALLEY CITY, UT — Police say a 15-year-old boy murdered 12-year-old Kailey Vijil and left her body in a horse pasture after luring the girl from her home.
According to police, the teen went to the girl’s home around midnight Friday and said something to her that convinced her to leave the house and go with him.
While it is not known what the teen said to the girl, a neighbor told police that the teen was at her house the night before trying to get his teenage sisters to help him find a pregnant cat. I know some of you are going to ask if anyone knew the girl was leaving the house, and the answer to that question is “yes”.
West Valley Police Chief Lee Russo said Vijil’s mother knew her daughter was leaving with the teen, but didn’t say if she knew where her daughter was going. He also didn’t know why the mother allowed her daughter to leave in the first place. However, Russo also said “this isn’t about parenting, this is about a homicide.”
An hour later, when her daughter had not returned, Vijil’s mother began looking for her.…
LORAIN, OH – Paul Pelton is facing criminal charges after the 41-year-old decided not to help two dying teens who had just been in a car crash, but rather filmed them with his cellphone and posted the video to Facebook.
On Monday, 17-year-old Zachary Goodin lost control of his Honda and sent him and his passenger, 17-year-old Cameron Friend, hit a parked vehicle, a utility pole, and finally crashing into a house.
While witnesses rushed to help pull the teens from the burning vehicle before rescue teams arrived, Pelton decided to film it. Instead of offering assistance or trying to comfort the teenagers, Pelton allegedly pulled out his cellphone and pulled a Nightcrawler.
According to police, he opened the vehicle’s back door to get video of the teens inside, calling them “idiots” while doing so.
“He opened a back door and leaned in to film the boys and then walked around to the front door as he continued recording,” the police report said. “At no time did he try to help either of the boys.”
Friend would die at the hospital while the Goodin is currently at the hospital in critical condition.…
GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A 4-year-old girl died after she accidentally hanged herself with clothing while trying to reach for something in her room.
The girl was alone in her room when her mother and stepfather found her hanging by her neck from clothing that had been hanging on the back of a door. She was taken to Hackley Hospital in Muskegon but later air-lifted in critical condition to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids.
Unfortunately, Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department said the girl died from her injuries on Tuesday.
“The investigation into this incident is ongoing,” Bennett said. “However, at this point, it does appear that the 4-year-old may have become entangled in clothing that was hanging from the back of a bedroom door. This may have occurred while the youngster was standing on a toy trying to reach an item up high.”
No charges have been filed at this time, but Bennett said detectives are still conducting interviews and analyzing evidence, and that a forensic autopsy will be performed within the next few days to find the exact cause of death.…
SANDY, UT — I missed this story when it first came out, but police in Utah have arrested 31-year-old Joseph Castellanos after he allegedly beat his girlfriend before stabbing her with a fork, covering her in hot sauce and trying to force her into an oven.
I happened last month when Castellanos arrived home and was very, very upset with his live-in girlfriend because she had been slow to respond to his Facebook messages he’d sent from work.
So, over the next 2 hours, police say Castellanos “punched the woman several times in the face and body, kicked her in the ribs, threatened to kill her, stabbed the top of her head using a kitchen knife causing a quarter-inch wound, held a second knife to her throat, stabbed her head and body at least five times with a fork, urinated on her, struck her with a belt and buckle, poured hot sauce and ranch dressing on her and tried to put her in an oven.” Aristocrats!
He eventually gave up trying to stuff her in the oven, which was on btw, and said he had another plan.…
LEADORE, ID — Deorr Kunz Jr., the 2-year-old boy who vanished from an Idaho campground four days ago, is still missing.
Last Friday, the toddler was with family at the Timber Creek Campground when his parents, Deorr Kunz Sr. and Jessica Mitchell, decided to some exploring on their own.
They had assumed the boy’s grandfather would watching him while they were gone, but when they returned they noticed their son wasn’t with the group. When they asked the boy’s grandfather about Deorr, he replied that he thought he’d went with them.
The family immediately began searching the area for the toddler before calling police about 30 minutes later. A search team was quickly formed and consisted of police, search and rescue teams, dogs, people on horseback and atvs, and even a helicopter.
Approximately 150 people scoured the campground, as well as a 2.5 mile radius surrounding the campground, but no trace of Kunz was found. This has lead some, including the boy’s parents, to believe the little boy was abducted.…
Grimes and two others were on a rope swing ride at the camp, a pendulum type swing that holds three people, when she somehow became disconnected from her harness and plummeted 100 feet to the ground.
Emergency personnel administered CPR, but the coroner’s office pronounced Grimes dead on the scene. The two other campers who were on the swing with Grimes were not harmed.
The camp, run by the Christian organization Young Life, stated the ride was being operated by two camp employees at the time of the incident, and they currently don’t know what went wrong. Terry Swenson of Young Life headquarters in Colorado Springs released the following statement.
“Safety is our highest priority at Young Life camps. For all rides at our camps (including the swings), we observe strict protocols regarding upkeep of equipment as well as safety training and operating procedures.
We have swings at 13 of our camps; all are currently closed as a measure of precaution and to ensure a safe experience for our campers.…
