Boulder, CO - According to police, a Colorado youth hockey coach has admitted having online chats where he asked young male teen players to send him nude photos and challenged them to ‘masturbation races’ on Facebook. Police failed to see this as merely an effort to foster competitiveness.
Zachary Meints, 24, was arrested in response to police allegations that Meints had inappropriate online communication with boys as young as 13 when Meints was an assistant coach with the Boulder Hockey Club. Police said that he later moved to the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders youth hockey club where the conduct continued.
According to a Boulder affidavit, police first became aware of Meints after a fellow RoughRiders coach reported to the FBI that he overheard Meints having inappropriate phone chats with young hockey players who weren’t on his team. When Meints colleague asked one of the boys about Meints, the boy reportedly said that Meints would call or text him to talk about hockey, but then shift the conversation to sexual innuendo and ask the boy to send him naked photos of himself on Facebook.…Continue Reading
Louisville, KY - A Louisville man who was part of a work program designed to integrate convicts back into mainstream employment has been charged for allegedly attempting to rape a co-worker at a Kentucky Humane society. The man was in a court room last Wednesday to answer to his charges.
According to a Louisville Metro Police report, Todd Duke, 41, was at the Louisville Humane Society as a volunteer worker through Dismas Charities – having been assigned to LHS since February. Dismas Charities is a not-for-profit company with the stated goal of “providing effective re-entry programs for offenders” – meaning re-entry into the workforce. Duke was living in a Dismas halfway house and performing the state-mandated community service work after a meth conviction.
Last Monday, Duke allegedly locked a female co-worker in a room, kissed the employee by force, and exposed himself to her. Duke then alledgedly grabbed the victim by the hair and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him. The report alleges that Duke continued the attack by trying to take the employee’s pants off in an effort to rape her.…Continue Reading
Duchesne, UT — An unidentified 35-year-old woman is facing charges after police claim she took nekkid photos of her 13-year-old daughter and forwarded them to the girl’s boyfriend because the kid was apparently too stupid to work the camera herself.
The boyfriend, a 30-year-old man from Oregon, reportedly sent the teen a cellphone and requested that she send him nude photos of herself. And while most teen girls I know can work a cellphone in their sleep, this one was apparently confused with all the buttons and stuff. Enter Mother of the Year….
In what can only be an effort to win “cool points” with the teen, mom snapped about three photos of the kid in her birthday suit and forwarded them to the aging pervert in Oregon, police said.
During questioning, mom admitted that she was fully aware of the relationship between her daughter and the older man, and was also aware that her daughter intended to send him nude pics. She was promptly charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.…Continue Reading
Tecumseh, MI - Occasionally, we here at D’D are asked to set aside our laser sharp Ivy League-caliber analysis of human psychosocial behavior to focus on 100% real and true crime fightin’. This is one of those times…
Police are asking for civic-minded citizens to help them locate a man who was recorded on video surveillance cameras checking out at a Michigan grocery store with his johnson fully out of his zipper. The surveillance cameras – clearly equipped with the latest macro-zoom and digital enhancement features – recorded the man during his brazen display to an unwitting checkout worker.
Police say that at 2:07 p.m. Wednesday at Busch’s Valu-land in Tecumseh, Michigan, the man pictured was purchasing items. As the clerk scanned the suspect’s groceries, she noticed his jeans were unzipped and his genitals ‘fully exposed.’ The clerk told police the man stood very close to the checkout counter, but – cleverly – far enough back so she could see his man parts over the edge of the counter. As the man walked away, she observed him zipping his pants back up in a clear admission that this was no mistake!…Continue Reading
San Francisco, CA – It’s almost like the plot of a horror movie. A 25-year-old infectious disease worker left work Friday only to die the next day after being infected with the contagious bacteria he had been working with.
The man worked at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center where, over the last few months, he had been working with a rare Neisseria meningitidis bacterial strain that causes septicemia and meningitis — both of which are nasty ways to go if left untreated.
Meningitis can lead to fever, headache, neck stiffness, coma and then death. By comparison, you would pray for this over septicemia, which is what investigators believe killed the man. Septicimia is inflammation of the bloodstream that causes bleeding into the skin and organs. A person unlucky enough to be afflicted with this blood poisoning can die very quickly from septic shock or ARDS.
Fellow employees described the man as competent and fully capable of handling the bacteria he was working with and the chief of the VA Hospital’s infectious diseases division said if the man had been working with the bacteria, he would have been wearing protective clothing from behind a protective safety cabinet or hood.…Continue Reading
CULPEPER, VA – The other day we had a commenter in one of our dog stories relay a story of someone shooting a dog after it had tried to attack a baby. It was a real hit with our resident animal lovers.
Coincidentally, we now have another story involving a dog who bit a baby, and an owner who shot it immediately afterwards. (*puts popcorn in microwave*)
An infant in Virginia hasn’t even been breathing air for a month when the family’s Jack Russell terrier decided to use the 20-day-old as a chew toy. The dog had gotten into the child’s bassinet while the mother took a nap.
Luckily the baby’s father returned home as the attack was in progress, but the dog had already bitten off the infant’s ear. The child was rushed to the hospital to treat multiple bite wounds to the buttocks and to have the ear sewn back on. The infant is currently in stable condition.
Lillian Leo, who raises and sells Jack Russell terriers, says she will not sell the dogs to families with small children.…Continue Reading
Iowa City, IA – Despite what others may say, I derive no pleasure from kicking someone when they’re down. Sometimes, as in this case, I choose to feature certain individuals purely as a public service announcement.
Sort of like Crazy Ralph, but instead of warning people away from cursed campgrounds, I’m warning them of the dangers of certain drugs. All in the hopes I can keep one person from getting busted using them in a pharmacy bathroom with their 4-year-old child present.
That’s exactly what happened to 30-year-old Tiffany Lewis the other day inside a Iowa City pharmacy. A witnesses told police that Lewis requested syringes before disappearing inside the pharmacy bathroom with her toddler for several minutes.
When she came back out, she was obviously under the influence of something and asked where she could dispose of used needles.
When police arrived on the scene and tried to question Lewis, she attempted to conceal a Crown Royal bag behind her back that was found to contain a metal spoon blackened with residue, a used needle and a substance believed to be heroin.…Continue Reading
Corbin, KY - A Kentucky woman was hospitalized in serious condition after an acquaintance reportedly stabbed her six times in a heated roadside dispute over a bra. Virginia L. Frye (pictured), 30, was arrested after Erica Canada – believed to be in her 20s – was brought to a hospital with stab wounds.
The melee reportedly began when Frye asked the victim to return a bra that she had left at Canada’s home.
“I called [Canada] to ask her about the bra and that’s when she said, ‘I have a problem with you,’” said Frye.
Not able to let that go by, the women met shortly after alongside a Kentucky highway. Investigators say both women had weapons – Canada armed with a lug wrench and Frye armed with a kitchen knife.
“They were screaming ‘bash her head in, kill her, kill her,’ and I had no choice but to defend myself,” said Frye. An interview with the clearly hyperactive Frye can be viewed here.
Whitley County Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Jackson was dispatched to the scene at approximately 8:15 p.m.…Continue Reading
According to witnesses, Michael Sadler had just cashed a check at the Asher One stop convenience store Thursday, when 14-year-old Michael “Lil Flip” Stanley rode by on his bike and jacked his wallet before pedaling down the street.
Incensed, Sadler hopped into his mini-van and gave chase, jumping the curb and tearing through several yards before finally mowing the kid down in a vacant lot.
Once the kid was immobilized, Sadler reportedly dragged him out from underneath the van and began beating the holy hell out of him. One witness told police Sadler even tore the kid’s clothing off in an attempt to find the wallet.
“He ran over him than pulled him out from under the van and started beating him up and choking him. That’s what I saw.” said witness Dewayne Turner. ”He [Stanley] is well loved; you know kids are going to be kids.…Continue Reading
Clearwater, FL — Officials with a Florida Humane Society are presumably reviewing policies on workplace fraternization after an ex-employee – and boyfriend of current HS medical director – was charged with having sex with a dog.
Eric Antunes, 29, was arrested after police reportedly found child pornography and evidence of his own act of bestiality in his possession.
Clearwater police began investigating Antunes after getting a tip that he possessed child pornography. A search of the computer yielded nine explicit photos and one explicit video depicting children, detectives said. According to police, he has admitted to downloading and viewing the child pornography on his home computer. A check of Antunes’ cell phone then revealed “several images of bestiality” involving Antunes and his girlfriend’s dog, police said. Ruh-roh.
The situation is a bit unique because, as it turns out, Antunes was a past employee of the Pinellas Humane Society and the girlfriend is the current medical director. Clearwater Public Communications Director Joelle Castelli said police do not have evidence that the girlfriend was aware of the fact Antunes was taking photos of himself engaged in sex acts with her pit-bull mix.…Continue Reading
Hinckley, MN - A Minnesota woman was left to re-evaluate a past relationship after her ex-boyfriend was arrested in conjunction with a failed effort to kidnap her chained up as a sex-slave. Hmmm… Yep. Ending it was probably the right thing…
Jesse Michael Ericson, 45, was charged in District Court on Tuesday after police accused him of contracting with an undercover law enforcement officer to kidnap his ex-girlfriend and hold her as a sex slave.
According to the Pine County Sheriff’s Office, an investigation began after informants told the East Central Drug and Violent Offender Task Force that Ericson was seeking someone to murder an ex-girlfriend. Task force agents arranged a meeting between Ericson and an undercover officer posing as a hit man.
The criminal complaint describes two meetings where Ericson providing detailed information on the woman – including a picture of her, a diagram of her home and information on her movements. Ericson reportedly told the agent he would receive approximately $150,000 for the hit.
“The defendant then wavered between having her killed and keeping her chained up and using her as a sex slave,” the complaint said.…Continue Reading
Boca Raton, FL - A Florida mother and father called police after seeing surveillance video showing their son robbing two elderly women boarding a bus. One of the women, who is 96 years old, suffered two broken ribs when her wheelchair fell during the incident.
In video recorded on April 12, a man identified as Adam Bardisa, 19, approaches the women – who are sisters – outside of a Publix store as they are waiting for a ramp to lower on a Palm Tran bus. The man then grabs a purse of one of the women, knocking them both to the ground before fleeing on his razor scooter.
Bystanders reportedly ran after Bardisa as he wheeled his scooter across the parking lot and jumped into a gold-colored car. Police said that he had gotten away with $1,200, a gold watch and a gold bracelet. The women gave a description to detectives.
Palm Tran released several different angles of video from the bus. Bardisa is also seen in in-store video watching the elderly women at the service counter purchase $620 of money orders.…Continue Reading
ECONOMY, PA – Two 13-year-old girls had to be airlifted to the hospital after they fell asleep while sunbathing in the road and were run over by a passing car.
For whatever reason, Samantha Schermanhorn and Kaylie George decided that they should work on their tan in the middle of a rural road. Unfortunately, they both fell asleep and did not hear the approaching car being driven by a 19-year-old who, just as unfortunately, did not see the two girls sleeping in the road.
The driver had just turned on the road the girls were sleeping on after having stopped at a stop sign. After he turned the girls into a pair of screaming speed bumps, 911 was called. They remained conscious throughout the ordeal and were able to explain what had happened and why they were in the road.
Both Schermanhorn and George were airlifted to the hospital suffering from lacerations to their ears, scalp and other areas. They were listed in fair condition and are both expected to be ok.
Police questioned the teen who ran over the girls, a cousin of one of the victim’s, but he was later released.…Continue Reading
Radnor, Pa - A 19-year-old Pennsylvania man is getting a lesson in what is appropriate from authorities in Pennsylvania after allegedly posting photos of random girls – alongside his post-masturbatory penis – on their Facebook pages. He reportedly told police these actions were ‘no big deal.’ Police disagree.
Neil Geckle, 19, came to the attention of authorities after a gaggle of young females – all members of the Radnor High School network – arrived at police headquarters to complain. Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo said that when the girls – three juveniles and one 18-year-old – first came to the station to explain the situation, they were so “hysterical” that he ‘couldn’t understand them at first.’
“I didn’t understand what they were talking about until one of them pulled out a picture,” Colarulo said. “As soon as we saw that, we knew we were dealing with something serious.”
According to investigators, Geckle set up a fake Facebook account. It was reported that Geckle then printed pictures of the girls from Facebook, put the girls’ pictures on a desk in his grandma’s bedroom and – after masturbating to them and ejaculating on them – uploaded a picture of the result including the original photo and his penis to the girls’ pages.…Continue Reading
A security guard at a Motel 6 contacted police to report he had heard a loud argument going on between a man and women in one of the motel’s third-floor rooms. He told them that when he went to investigate, he witnessed Cristal Richardson walking down the hall naked and covered in blood.
Responding police were let into the room by the motel manager, and there they found the dead body of 34-year-old Cedric Owens. According to the medical report, Owens had suffered, “multiple stab wounds to his upper body, his throat was cut and there was traumatic amputation of the penis and scrotum.”
Richardson was treated at the hospital for minor, offensive injuries to her hands before being booked on a charge of murder with bond set at $200,000.
The two were casual acquaintances who both have criminal records that include assault and drug related convictions. Richardson’s attorney said she had simply acted in self-defense.…Continue Reading
WINTER PARK, Fla. — Police have announced they have a suspect in custody in connection to the execution style murders of two teenagers whose bodies were found burning alongside a popular walking trail.
Last month, some bicyclist riding along the Cady Way Trail found the burning bodies of 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart, best friends who both attended Winter Park High School.
It is now being revealed that police have a suspect and have had him in custody since two days after the boys were found. His name is Jessie Davis and it may come as a shock, judging by his picture, but the 30-year-old is an alleged drug dealer with a lengthy criminal history. He also lives one mile from where the murders occurred.
Davis was arrested on April 17 on charges of violation of probation, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. These charges are not related to the deaths of Presha and Stewart.…Continue Reading

HOUSTON, TX – Police have arrested a man for allegedly barricading a populated bar’s exit and then setting the bar on fire.
On the night of April 19, 30-year-old Jaime Mata and his buddy, known only as “Pepe,” were kicked out of an East Houston nightclub, the East End Bar, for fighting with staff.
Apparently they felt that if they weren’t to be allowed a full night’s fun, no one else should be either. Witnesses state that as the pair were being ejected, Mata called out the subtle warning, “This place is gonna burn!”
Mata and Co. left and fetched some gasoline from a nearby Conoco station. They then returned to the bar where, as is clearly seen in surveillance video, a shirtless man with ‘Mata’ emblazoned on his back (and tits bigger than mine) accompanied by an equally shirtless friend, closes the burglar bars over the front door of the bar. He then wedges a large piece of wood between the burglar gate and the ground, effectively jamming it closed.
Further video shows the men rounding the building and pouring the gasoline along the bar’s back wall and rear exit, then lighting it. Lucky for patrons and staff, the building was equipped with a third door and everyone was able to safely evacuate.…Continue Reading
Munich, Germany - A woman with past charges of forced sex has been taken into custody again after her latest ‘victim’ was found cowering in the street in tears. A police affidavit confirmed the man’s description of ’36 hours of hell.’
“I met her on a bus,” the victim was reported to have told police. “She invited me back here. Oh God, it was hell. I can’t walk. Please help me.”
This comes on the heels of earlier police involvement when a different conquest of the woman, Dieter Schulz, 43, called police after escaping to her balcony after she fell asleep. The man reported a marathon of seven successive sexual encounters under duress.
“You have got to help me,” Schulz reportedly told police dispatchers. “She is trying to kill me with sex. I cannot get out – and I cannot go on!”
Schulz is reportedly pursuing charges of sexual coercion and deprivation of freedom. According to Munich police, when officers arrived to question the woman and free Schulz, she invited two officers to join her in bed for a “quickie” – but an MPD spokesperson says that the officers declined.…Continue Reading
