Review: The Serial Killer’s Apprentice

January 8, 2009 at 10:29 pm by  

About a year ago, began using the name of the alleged criminal in the title of every blog post.  Since then it has become standard practice at many other true-crime blogs, a mimicry that provides no shortage of flattery.  Unfortunately for James Renner, no names of the assuredly guilty can grace the titles of his chapters.  In The Serial Killer’s Apprentice he usually has to settle for the somber and sad inclusion of  only the names of victims.…

Rickeeta Johnson

Atlanta, GA – Some women will do anything to keep a man.  And some women are just sick bitches who enjoy watching others suffer.  Rickeeta Johnson might be both.   Johnson, 33, moved out of her marriage bed so that her husband, Donquan Rushin, could fill the spot – with the couple’s young daughter.  …

Frederick and Sharon Wessel

Indianapolis, IN–On Christmas Eve, 11-year-old Heather Wessel was standing near a propane heater being used to heat the home…she got too close and the bottoms of her silk pajamas caught on fire. She suffered second- and third-degree burns to her legs and backside. Her parents neglected to seek immediate medical attention. For two weeks, Heather suffered in excruciating pain, and they did nothing about it.…

“I Don’t Shoot No Kids!”

January 8, 2009 at 2:48 am by  

Jackie NanneyGastonia, NC— It reportedly happened on a fairly regular basis for about 3 months… Jessica Pack, 31, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Jackie Nanney, would shoot at her three children with a BB gun. It wasn’t necessarily a form of punishment, it was mainly for shits and giggles. Hey, asshats, really… get a new hobby.

The children, ages 4, 5, and 7, were apparently shot at for sport. In the bathtub, riding their bikes, playing in the yard, etc. Hey, they were fair game. At one point, Nanney had the 7-year-old trapped behind a door and then shot at him through the crack. The BB’s left welts and bruises and occasionally, the BB’s would draw blood.

When the pair made their first appearance in court on Wednesday, Pack told the court she did shoot the 4-year-old, and that she allowed Nanney to shoot all three of the children. But Nanney says, ‘I don’t shoot no children! I shoot cans and stuff.’

Nanney cried to judge, begging for a lower bail.…

LeBaron Vaughn & Rena Ireland Murdered Seth

January 7, 2009 at 9:57 am by

Seth Ireland

Seth Ireland

Fresno, CA – Everyone failed ten-year-old Seth Ireland.  Seth’s birth father abused him until he lost his  rights.  Seth’s mother, Rena Ireland, then got a new man, LeBaron Vaughn, 32.  Vaughn also beat Seth.  Rena Ireland didn’t do anything.  Seth’s father didn’t turn over a new leaf and protect his kid.  Even Family Services said they saw no reason to remove Seth from Rena’s home.

And now, Seth Ireland is dead.  On December 29, he was beaten, punched, kicked and stomped into a coma by LeBaron Vaughn.  Yesterday, Seth died.…

Daniel Lamborn

Houston, MO – Daniel Dale Lamborn, 25, seems to have really bad luck with parenting.  Less than two years ago, he and his wife Toni lost an infant to SIDS.  Late last year, they lost another child.  Toni’s daughter Camille Fayte Denis, 4, died on November 22, 2008.

Problem is, Camille didn’t die of natural causes.  Her heart muscle was literally torn by blunt force trauma.  And Daniel Lamborn has now been arrested and charged with Camille’s death.…

Pastor James Bell

James Howard Bell, pastor for The Refuge Temple Church of God in Christ, turned himself into police. He admitted to having some sexual encounters with a 15-year-old.

A fact he conveniently did not tell the juvenile.…

Interview With Daniel Suarez

January 6, 2009 at 9:00 am by  

Daniel Suarez’s startling first novel, Daemon, lands on store shelves this Thursday, January 8th.  If you have read my review of Daemon, you’ll recall that we gave it 6 stars out of 5, which brought our site down for a few days (perhaps an early sign of the Daemon’s awakening?). The fact that Daniel took time out of his busy schedule to answer some of our questions also makes me nervous. I have a bad feeling that you, the reader, are about to be infected with a neurological meme-based virus encoded to trigger your genetic predisposition for peer pressure.…

Jeffrey Bone Got Beat Down

Great Falls, MT–Jeffrey Bone, 34, is a man with varied interests. I can think of four right off the top of my head; ghosts and the paranormal, photography, ladies underwear, and unconscious women.

Charlie W. Myers

Dayton, OH – Jennifer Nelson, 29, was a young married mother, putting her four-year-old son to bed on Friday night.  Jenny’s husband Eddie was working at one of his three jobs – jobs he worked so that Jenny could stay home with little William.  As Jenny put Will to bed, evil broke into the Nelson home.  Charlie W. Myers, 22, shot and killed Jennifer Nelson in front of her little boy.  He then stole two computers – and Will.…

Michael Clemmons, Luster Lewis Taped the Rape

L to R: Michael Clemmons, Luster Lewis, John Foster

Santa Ana, CA – Ruby’s crime tip of the day:  If you’re going to commit a violent crime, please have the common sense not to videotape it.    You see, if you do, then someone may just pass that tape along to authorities and get your ass thrown in jail.

I shouldn’t have to tell you people this stuff, really.  But it seems this thought never occurred to Michael Alexander Clemmons, Luster Mitchell Lewis, or John Paul Foster II, because they raped an unconscious woman and taped the assault.…

Alicia Mae Herrera Was FUBAR

Alicia Mae Herrera

Houston, TX–Ya gotta be pretty damn drunk if the patrons at a bar call police to complain about your drunkeness. Police were dispatched to a Texas City bar Friday evening after getting complaints about a seriously intoxicated woman. When officers arrived at the bar, they found Alicia Mae Herrera to be so drunk, she had to be held up by two other customers at the bar. Playing it safe, the police decided to call in an ambulance to haul the inebriated woman away. She forgot something in the parking lot though, her 2-year-old daughter.

Provo, UT–I have a recommendation for some of you ladies out there who are thinking about letting the current penis babysit your children. Since love is blind and you are 100% certain that your boyfriend would never, ever lay a hand on your child, invest in a good punching bag…I think you can pick one up for about $30. That way, when the current penis throws a fit and needs to release some aggression, maybe he will choose the punching bag over your precious child.

The Kovens Wanted To Party

Lori Beth & Craig Alan Kovens

Gainesville, FL–Imagine, for a minute, that you are a 10-year-old child. You wake up bright and early one morning to find your parents gone. There is no instructions, no note, no phone call, no indication as to where they have gone. The house is dirty and there is no food. The Kovens’ twin boys awoke to such a dilemma on New Year’s Day.

Danny Platt Said “No” to Child Support

January 4, 2009 at 1:03 am by  

Ja'Shawn Powell at dreamindemon.comJa’ Shawn Powell

New Orleans, LA – Two and a half years ago, a woman gave birth to a little boy and named him Ja’ Shawn. Ja’ Shawn’s father didn’t seem to show much interest in being a daddy, as he never visited him. Of course, the courts expect fathers to help with the raising of their children at least financially, even when the extent of their parental involvement was a single sperm donation, and recently Danny Platt was ordered to pay child support. Apparently this caused Platt to cogitate on his hopes, dreams, desires, and the course of his future, and Friday, for the first time ever, the 22-year-old picked up Ja’ Shawn for a weekend visit. You might guess that Platt had decided it was time to step up to the plate, get to know his son, and be a good father to him, but guess what? You’d be completely wrong.…

HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP – Talk about bringing in the New Year. While some of you were at your local bar bringing in 2009 with your tongue shoved in the mouth of a stranger, or possibly watching in abject horror as Dick Clark counted down from 10…Steven Kelsey, 19, was slitting his 17-year-old sister’s throat before having sex with her, ending the night by stabbing her in the eye in an attempt to get to her brain.…
