In The Mean Time...
HARDWICK, VT – Second degree murder charges have been filed against a disabled teen’s mother and her boyfriend after police say they killed the boy by intentionally putting alcohol in his IV.
On Aug. 22, police responded to the home of Melissa Robitille and Walter Richter after first responders found 13-year-old Isaac Robitille dead inside.
Isaac had multiple medical issues that required caretakers, feeding tubes and IVs just to keep him alive. Robitille wrote on her blog that Isaac had a nervous system disorder and Holoprosencephaly – an anomaly in which the brain doesn’t fully divide into two hemispheres.
According to a comment made by Richter’s on his Facebook page just the other day, Isaac was well cared for and it was just his time to go.
Police disagreed with that assessment, especially after the teen’s autopsy revealed he had a BAC of 0.146, almost twice the legal limit to drive. The medical examiner’s office has ruled the boy’s death a homicide, citing alcohol as the contributing cause.
So how did the alcohol get in the boy?…
TOLEDO, OH – Markeese Cummings, 24, has been charged with punching a one-year-old in the face because she wouldn’t stop crying for her mother.
According to police, Cummings and 20-year-old Simone Day have a relationship that is purely sexual. On Monday, Cummings visited Day at her apartment where she lives with her one-year-old daughter.
Before the two had sex, Day moved her little girl to the child’s own room. After having sex, Cummings took the crying girl from her room while Day took a shower.
Cummings then took the child downstairs with him to get something to drink. When she would not stop crying for her mother, Cummings lost his temper and punched the child in the face with a closed fist “causing serious harm.”
The exact details of the child’s injuries are not being reported, but Cummings was arrested on a charge of felony battery. He was booked into the Lucas County jail where he’s being held in lieu of $75,000 bond.
This latest charge will be a nice addition to Cummings’ collection.…
SOMEWHERE – Stephen Collins, the actor who played the pastor dad in that horrible show 7th Heaven, admitted during a therapy session that he’d molested an underage girl and exposed himself to two others.
The New York Police Department has launched an investigation after a recording of the 67-year-old confessing to these crimes was made public. These recordings were made during a 2012 therapy session with his now ex-wife, Faye Grant. Grant secretly recorded the sessions and somehow TMZ recently got their hands on them.
Anyway, in the recording (listen to it here), Collins admits that he exposed himself several times to an underage relative of his first wife when the girl was 11, 12 and 13. He also admits that he had the girl place her hand on his dick.
Grant can be heard asking him if he had an erection when he exposed himself, to which he replies, “No, I mean, no. Partial, maybe, I think.”
He goes on to admit that he exposed himself to a California girl who lived in his Los Angeles neighborhood, and a 12- or 13-year-old in New York.…
SELBYVILLE, DE – Police in Delaware have arrested 30-year-old Ashley Tull after her 4-year-old girl went to daycare and started passing out bags of heroin to other children.
Workers at Hickory Tree Child Care Center called police Monday morning after they observed some of the kids with small bags of an unknown substance. The substance was later determined to be heroin.
An investigation would reveal a 4-year-old girl found 249 small bags in the backpack her mother, Ashley Tull, had given her to use after her own backpack was ruined by the family pet that night. The girl believed the small bags contained candy and began distributing them to her friends.
Although the teachers at the center were able to confiscate the bags before any of the children opened them, some were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures.
Police interviewed Tull and then took her into custody. She’s currently charged with maintaining a drug property and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Tull was released after posting $6,000 secured bond.…
SAN DIEGO, CA – Michael Lutts, a 50-year-old pediatric nurse, has been accused of sexually abusing his 6-week-old foster child, then sending photos of the abuse to another man.
According to court documents, Lutts brought the baby boy home on Aug. 4 and almost immediately began texting images of the infant to 34-year-old Stephen Schaffner of Greensboro, Maryland.
Over the next several hours, investigators say Schaffner directed Lutts to perform various sex acts on the infant and send him videos of the abuse.
Lutts honored Schaffner’s requests and sent him multiple images and videos of the sexual abuse, including images of him performing oral sex on the baby and a video of him masturbating while he fondled the infant’s genitals
Investigators say the baby can be heard crying throughout most of the videos, and can be seen still wearing a hospital tag around his leg.
Lutts is currently in custody at the San Diego Metropolitan Correctional Center. Full charges have yet to be filed against him, as more sexual abuse allegations are pending.…
LEICESTER, ENGLAND – An online troll hiding behind online anonymity to send hateful messages to the parents of Madeleine McCann, has been found dead in a hotel room shortly after her identity was exposed.
Brenda Leyland, 63, was allegedly among a handful of people who feel the need to continually harass Madeleine’s parents by sending them abusive messages online.
Anyone who’s in the crime scene in any capacity is aware of the Madeleine McAnn disappearance and the campaign of hatred directed towards the McAnns from people who believe they have something to do with it — even though there isn’t a shred of proof to support that belief.
On Twitter, Facebook and even forums like ours, people state they want the McAnns killed or to suffer a variety of different fates. Leyland, using the Twitter handle sweepyface, once posted she wanted the couple to “suffer for the rest of their miserable lives.”
Some people were rightfully concerned with these messages and started gathering as much information as they could, eventually handing over seven years worth of info on the accounts making these comments to Scotland Yard.…
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Here’s an odd abuse case out of Oklahoma where police have accused 49-year-old (!) Geneva Robinson of dressing as a witch named “Nelda” to abuse her 7-year-old granddaughter.
Staff at Griffin Memorial Hospital called police after Robinson brought the girl there and told hospital employees that she was unable to control the girl anymore.
An examination of the child revealed multiple injuries, including infected wounds to her ankles and wrists that indicated the gir had been bound. It was also noted that the girl looked to be malnourished.
When interviewed by a DHS worker, the girl said that Robinson would physically abuse her while dressed as a witch named “Nelda.” She claimed Robinson would put on a green mask, hat and robe before binding her wrists inside the garage and making her sleep on a pair of pants because “she was in trouble.”
The girl also said “Nelda” would hit her with an orange and black whip, and use a pink dog leash underneath her arms to hang her in the middle of the garage so that creatures in the attic could come and get her.…
KENNER, LA – Police say two Destrehan High School English teachers decided to throw away their careers, relationships, reputations and possible freedom all so they could take turns sitting on some 16-year-old dick.
Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser says the two teachers, 32-year-old Shelley Dufresne and 24-year-old Rachel Respess, met with the student after a football game on September 12th, then drove to Respess’ home where they participated in a threesome that lasted until the early morning hours.
Regular readers of DD know we’ve reported on a slew of women having sex with their students, to the point that I get sick of writing them up. The obvious difference with this particular story is that it involves two teachers at the same time.
You are probably wondering, like I was, how in the hell does a scenario like this happen? How do two teachers at the same school end up having sex with the same student at the same time? It’s simple, really; word of mouth combined with a severe lack of judgement.…
FULTON COUNTY, GA – Janna Thompson has been indicted on second-degree murder and child cruelty charges after a 3-year-old boy in her daycare accidentally hanged himself while playing on a slide.
On July 9, Thomas Stephens was being watched at Janna’s Daycare, a daycare Thompson ran out of her home. According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, Thompson took Stephens and two other toddlers outside to play, leaving two infants and another toddler inside her home.
At some point Janna went back inside to discipline another child.
“While the children were playing, one toddler began misbehaving,” court documents stated. “The Provider took this child inside leaving three children unsupervised on the playground. While inside, the Provider used the restroom, received a phone call and made a phone call.”
After an “undetermined amount of time,” Thompson went back outside and found Stephens laying flat on a slide with a piece of twine wrapped around his neck. The boy wasn’t breathing, so Thompson called 911 and attempted CPR. Unfortunately, Stephens would die in his mother’s arms at the hospital the following day.…
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Vicente Ridon and his wife, Dorma, have been sentenced to life behind bars after being found guilty of crimes related to the production of animal cruelty videos.
Two years ago, someone stumbled across videos of young girls torturing animals. For those of you who are unaware of these types of videos, let me ruin your morning a bit.
The videos this person found are called crush videos, and are created for people who get aroused by watching women crush things with their feet.
The videos often include women simply stepping on food or insects, but can also include women stepping on live animals like kittens, puppies, mice, reptiles, etc.
The videos the Ridons manufactured included crush-type scenes, but they also ramped up the animal abuse to horrific levels while forcing a 12-year-old girl to participate.
Their videos featured:
- a dog getting skinned alive
- rabbits flailing and screaming as their ears were cut off and as they were set on fire
- a dog getting burned with a flat iron
- a monkey and several dogs getting hit in the eyes with the sharp end of a stiletto heel
- puppies getting crushed until they vomited their own internal organs
If you want to get a taste of just how heinous these videos are, then watch the following news report.…
DALLAS, TX – Dallas police say Angel Sanches-Zenteno, 17, raped his 5-year-old cousin in an abandoned apartment before he strangled her to death then hanged her inside a closet.
Katherina Gonzalez was staying with her uncle at the Lake Highlands apartments earlier this month while her parents were at work. Police were called after the girl was reported missing, and would find her body hanging by a shirt in the closet of a vacant apartment.
Sanches-Zenteno would tell police that a man named “Carlos” forced him and Gonzales into the abandoned apartment. He said that Carlos stuffed him inside a closet for more than a half hour while his cousin was killed.
He would tell another investigator that he sexually assaulted the girl for “less than a minute” because Carlos forced him to do so at gunpoint. DNA samples collected from Gonzales would later be tested and matched DNA taken from Sanches-Zenteno.
Police have yet to find Carlos, because he doesn’t exist. A witness told police he watched Sanches-Zenteno lure Gonzalez into the abandoned apartment, telling the girl “Come on, come on.”
Sanches-Zenteno is being held in Dallas County jail on charges of capital murder and aggravated sexual assault.…
ZWOLLE, LA – Police have not filed any criminal charges after a 19-month-old boy got wedged in his mother’s car window and died of positional asphyxia, although there is a criminal investigation into the child’s death.
Emergency responders were called to a home just before 11 p.m. Saturday, where Robert Lynch was found unresponsive and hanging out of his mother’s car window. The toddler was transferred to the hospital and placed on life support Unfortunately, the boy was pronounced brain dead and removed from life support the next day.

She told investigators that after she parked her car she noticed that the back window was rolling up, trapping her son.

WEST MILFORD, NJ — In more “horrifying ways I never want to die” news, 22-year-old Daten Patel was possibly killed by a black bear while hiking with friends in New Jersey’s Apshawa Preserve.
Patel was with a group of five men hiking through the 576-acre wooded area when they were confronted by a 300-pound black bear. When the bear began stalking them, the group scattered in different directions.
Four of the men were able to regroup, but were unable to find Patel. Two hours after calling police, the West Milford Search and Rescue team found Patel’s body being guarded by the bear.
“Evidence at the scene indicated that the victim had been attacked by a bear,” West Milford Police Chief Timothy C. Storbeck said.
Multiple attempts were made to scare the bear away, but the bear had to be euthanized. The bear’s body was taken to a state lab where it will be examined for clues as to why it pursued the group.
Kelcey Burguess, principal biologist and leader of the state Division of Fish and Wildlife’s black bear project, said the bear could have been predisposed to attack but was probably just looking for food.…
ELPASO, TX – Police have arrested US army specialist Dartarious Graham after they say the 20-year-old beat his 2-year-old daughter to death for soiling her diaper.
Graham was at his apartment Saturday with his cousin, 19-year-old Robert Franklin, and his daughter, Peyton Graham when Graham became angry that his daughter had soiled her diaper.
So Graham did what a lot of parents do in that situation; he took the little girl in a bedroom so he could beat the shit out of her with a belt. Franklin observed this beating but instead of stopping it, he walked away while the beating was taking place.
Once he was done, Graham came out of the room with his daughter who proceeded to go limp and unresponsive. Graham called 911 and the girl was transported to the hospital where she would later die. Police were notified when injuries found on the child appeared to be suspicious, and some of them were indicative of past abuse.
After questioning Graham and Franklin, they were arrested and charged with murder.…
Two hours after classes ended on Friday, Nash approached his teacher and put his arm around her. When she rebuked his advances, Nash body-slammed her to the ground, choked her until she was unconscious, then raped her.
By the time the teacher regained consciousness and called police, Nash had already left the scene. He’d also put a used condom in her purse, threw her cell phone in the trash and took her car keys.
Police would locate him five hours later driving the teacher’s car. Once in custody, Nash admitted he sexually assaulted the teacher. Nash has been charged with attempted first degree murder, sexual battery, robbery and grand theft.
Nash’s father, Victor Marshall Nash Sr., said that he was ‘shocked’ to hear his son had been accused of raping his teacher, adding that he and his mother “tried to raise him as both loving parents.” Nash Sr.…
CHANDLER, AZ — A man trimming trees at a car dealership was decapitated when he somehow fell headfirst into an industrial wood chipper.
According to the Chandler Police Department, the unidentified man worked for Phoenix Trim-A-Tree LLCA and was part of a small crew trimming trees at Freeway Chevrolet at about 10:15 a.m. Thursday.
He was reportedly standing on the wood chipper when he suddenly slipped and fell in. To make matters worse, two of the workers with him when it happened were his two sons.
The man’s family arrived on the scene and described the victim to reporters as a happy, family man who took pride in his work and had been employed by the landscaping company for years.
The state Occupational Safety and Health Administration will probably conduct their own investigation, said Chandler police spokesperson Sgt. Seth Tyler.
If there’s a silver lining to this man’s horrific death, it’s the fact that he went in with his head. I’m sure it was pretty quick. Aside from being eaten alive by an animal, I cannot think of a more terrifying way to die than to get pulled feet first through a goddamn wood chipper.…
GEORGETOWN, TX – Police say 18-year-old Papa Murphy’s employee, Austin Symonds, admitted he rubbed his balls on a customer’s pizza because he’d ordered it right before closing time.
On Sept 2, a man called a Papa Murphy’s just before closing time to order a family size stuffed pizza with Canadian bacon, pineapple and extra cheese. Symonds was not happy with the timing of the order, so he decided to add some of his scrotum to the pizza’s toppings free of charge.
Unfortunately for Symonds, his timing could not have been worse. The customer walked in and witnessed Symonds adding his nuts to the pizza, potentially saving him and his family unknowingly chowing down on some tainted pubes.
Symonds apologized after he was confronted by the customer, who asked Symonds his age. When Symonds responded that he was 18, the customer stated, “So you are old enough to know better than to put your balls on someone’s pizza.”
The customer said he watched as Symonds talked to the store’s manager over the phone and that Symonds apologized again.…
ALASKA — Immediately after KTVA reporter Charlo Greene reported on a medical marijuana business during a live 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, she revealed she was the owner of the business and declared, “As for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
It’s worth watching, not just for her quitting, but also for her shocked co-anchor’s hilarious attempt at a recovery.
Greene was reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club, reportedly Alaska’s only legal medical marijuana resource that helps connect medical marijuana cardholders with local growers.
Greene is also the president and CEO of the organization. She says she quit her job as a reporter so she could redirect all of her energy toward helping end “a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.” Amen.
She chose to quit in the way that she did in order to draw attention to the issue of medical marijuana and Ballot Measure 2, the initiative to regulate marijuana in Alaska like alcohol. She says KTVA had no idea she was connected to the Alaska Cannabis Club or that she was going to quit on the air.…
