Interview with Tana French

January 2, 2009 at 5:59 pm by  

It is fitting that our first interrogation victim would be a recipient of the Edgar Award for best debut novel.  Tana French’s In the Woods won praise in our review and has had critics and readers clamoring for more.  She dutifully followed with a sequel, The Likeness, which features some of the same characters, but with a new protagonist at the center.  We already have our copy and will be doing a review of it soon.…

Richard Heatwole Ruins Lives

January 2, 2009 at 8:01 am by  

 Hayes, Haley and Richard Heatwole

CANDLER, N.C. — I had been following a story over the New Years holiday in which a man had allegedly shot and killed his ex-wife, two neighbors and then abducted his two young children. The last I had checked before crashing last night, was that police were still looking for him driving a white Toyota Tundra. I woke up this morning to see that the three had been located at a residence, and that a standoff was live and in progress.…

Review: In The Woods

January 1, 2009 at 5:31 pm by  

In the Woods comes with a ton of expectations.  With an Edgar award, a Macavity Award, an Irish Book Award, and the Strand’s award for best first novel, I cracked this book open prepared to be blown away.  You would think a let-down was imminent, but instead I was up way past my bedtime two nights in a row, desperate to finish the novel but dreading not having any more to read.  Good news on both fronts: the end was satisfying, a sequel was released this summer, and Tana’s publicist informs me that she is hard at work on a third.  Not only was I satisfied, I get to go back for more!…

December 30, 2008 at 7:26 am by  

Ada, OK – Kenneth Wayne Huneycutt, 60, is the pastor of New Hope Baptist Church.  He’s also a pedophile who likes to feel up little boys and force them to reciprocate.  Rev. Huneycutt has admitted to molesting two little boys, ages six and ten, multiple times over the last eight months.  Most recently, the pastor molested the boys in December, after which he told them that what he’d done (and made them do) was their “little secret”.

Um, Reverend?  That thing in your hand is not a  church-approved teaching tool. …

Staten Island, NY – I really hope Jaquan Porter had a great Christmas this year, because he isn’t getting another one. On Friday, December 26, ten-year-old Jaquan was beaten to death by his mother.

Christopher Sefakis: Stung Twice

December 26, 2008 at 12:58 pm by  

Hamilton Twp, OH–They say lightning never strikes twice. In the case of Christopher Sefakis, 41, that proves to be false. You see, Sefakis is looking for love. His requirements? You must be male and you must be under the age of 16. Like many other pedophiles and pervs we write about, Sefakis was looking for some young love on the internet. This little hobby of his got him in trouble last year when the 15-year-old boy he was chatting it up with turned out to be Hamilton Township Police Lt. Jeff Braley. Almost one year later, Sefakis is up to his old tricks again. Imagine his surprise when he found his internet love interest was once again Lt. Jeff Braley. Seriously folks, you can’t make this shit up!…

Anthony LaMantia Is A Recalcitrant Pedophile

Anthony LaMantia

Liberty, NY – Anthony LaMantia likes little girls.  And, apparently, the occasional little boy as well.  LaMantia, 56, is a registered sex offender in the state of New York.  Why?  Because he raped two preteens repeatedly between 1998 and 2001, that’s why.   LaMantia was convicted in 2005 of second-degree rape and was placed on ten years supervised probation.  You heard me – probation.  For child rape.   Um, New York?  WTF? …

Theodore, AL–Lawrence Edward Lee, 45, had a bad case of the ‘nobody loves me’ Christmas blues. He didn’t get a single present for Christmas. Not even a re-gifted fruitcake. Can you believe that? Well, he got even with the selfish relatives who overlooked him…he set his own trailer on fire. That’ll show ’em! Now he not only lacks presents, but also a home. Luckily, the kind-hearted folks down at the Metro Jail welcomed him with open arms.

joe_gallegos

Phoenix, AZ – This is a story too terrible for Christmas.  But frankly, it’s too terrible for any day, and the family has no choice about dealing with it, so I think we should, too.

On Tuesday, December 23rd, with the excitement of Christmas in the air, two young cousins, Edwin Pellecier, aged 10, and Jesse Ramirez, aged 7, decided to walk to the park just a few doors from their home to play.   They were found a short time later, bludgeoned about the head so badly that the EMT’s could not determine who they were or what had caused their injuries.
