In The Mean Time...
Police were called to the home of Larry and Courtney Taylor on Friday night after a relative went to check on the family after not hearing from them all day.
“He went over there to check on them. No one had heard from there that day,” said Sheriff Colan Harrell. “He saw a body, left and called 911.”
When deputies arrived at the home, they had to kick in a back door to gain entry. Once inside, they encountered 41-year-old Courtney Taylor who was brandishing a pistol.
“He told her to put the weapon down and she didn’t,” Harrell said.
When Taylor aimed the pistol at the deputies, Deputy Sanders shot Taylor twice, once in the chest and once in the abdomen. She was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Deputies would then find the dead bodies of Taylor’s 56-year-old husband Larry, 18-year-old daughter Jesse and 13-year-old daughter Jolee.…
Police say 64-year-old Edgard Fuentes broke into his estranged wife’s home Thursday night and poured gasoline on her as she was sleeping.

The resulting fire engulfed the home, destroying it. One neighbor described what he witnessed after hearing screaming.
“When I heard some screaming, they were in the back yard. I saw the lady rolling on the floor on fire. There was another lady crying for help,” he said.

According to the boy’s mother, she was giving him a bath when she noticed he had an injury on his hand. When she asked him what happened, he told her the nanny had burned him with an iron.
The woman reviewed surveillance footage from a home security camera and witnessed something shocking; the nanny, 21-year-old Nosipho Nxumalo, burning her son repeatedly with a hot curling iron.
“After she burns him several times, you could tell she was telling him, ‘See that’s what happens when you don’t listen,’ and then she hugs him.” said the boy’s mother. “She’s playing these warped mind games with my child, and it’s the most disgusting thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life.”
The woman immediately called police who arrested Nxumalo. She told them that she was just trying to discipline the boy when he refused to listen, so she used the curling iron to burn him.…
Bradley Jean Hubbard was arrested after a woman living in the home finally got tired of hearing Hubbard sexually assault the dog named “Baby Girl” and called police.
She told them that she had witnessed Hubbard take the dog into his bedroom to have sex with it, claiming it had happened at least 100 times in the last several years.
The woman claimed to have even witnessed Hubbard in the act after peeking through a hole in Hubbard’s bedroom door.
During each incident, the woman said she could hear the dog whimper and cry out in pain, but over time the dog remained silent while being assaulted.
No clue on why the woman waited so long to report the abuse, but the final straw came on Dec 28, when Hubbard allegedly grabbed the dog from her bedroom and then took her to his bedroom and shut the door.…
According to police, 65-year-old Rebecca Rawson went to the home of 83-year-old Eugene Matthews to retrieve a dog, Bart, that belonged to Rawson’s estranged husband, who died last week.
Matthews was a friend Rawson’s estranged husband, and took the dog in after his death.
When Rawson showed up to the home with her daughter and brother-in-law, she stayed in the car. When her brother-in-law knocked on the door, a woman answered the door and he called the dog’s name.
When Bart came to the door, he picked him up and took him back to the car. That’s when Matthews came out of the house and fired a handgun into the air twice before firing once at the car Rawson was sitting in.
The shot went through the windshield and hit Rawson in the face, killing her. Matthews’ family is saying he acted in self-defense, and that the Rawson family blasted through the gate and kicked down the front door, but the sheriff’s office said that account contradicts the evidence gathered from the scene.…

SILVER CREEK, GA – Videos taken by Katelyn Davis, the 12-year-old girl who live-streamed her suicide, are currently being published online and offer a real glimpse into her home life.
All I can say about it is that if I had to live in a household like that at 12, I don’t know if I would have hanged myself, but I surely would have murdered someone.
I have included two videos of Katelyn having an argument with her mother, which you can watch below, and it is like the breakfast scene in Rob Zombie’s Halloween.
During this argument you hear everything Katelyn had complained about in some of her other online videos, and she was not exaggerating.
She and her mother argue about Katelyn constantly having to watch her unruly siblings, about her mother’s drug use and bringing men over, Katelyn’s cutting and even Katelyn expressing her anger over her mother not immediately kicking out her man after an incident in a pool. It’s a goddamn train wreck.
Look, I’m sure no one would like to have a recording of an argument of themselves and their kid put out there, especially if you didn’t know you were being recorded and the person listening didn’t have context.…

When he tried washing off the liquid, he noticed she was no longer breathing and attempted CPR, but was unable to save Ashley.…

There’s a lot of details with this case, so I’m going to start at the beginning.
Back in July, 41-year-old Sara Packer went to police to report her adopted daughter, 14-year-old Grace Packer, had run away from home after an argument. She explained she had done this before and that on this occasion, she had taken $300 from the home.
Over the next several months, the Abington Township Police Department investigated Grace’s disappearance, but without the help of Sara. They say Sara ignored them, didn’t let Grace’s family know she was missing and continued to collect a Social Security check in the girl’s name – spending over $3000 of the funds.
In November, Packer was charged with hindering attempts to find her daughter and later released on bail.
On October 31, hunters would find a head and torso in the woods and called police.…

While giving the infant a bath in the sink under running water, she accidentally turned off the cold water instead of the hot water.
The girl’s mother called the infant’s parents, 25-year-old Patric Eddy and 26-year-old Candace Mercedes, to inform them of what happened.

The woman told police the baby was suffering from an “awful” burn on her abdomen and had a diaper full of urine and feces.
The woman woke up Matthews who agreed to let her take the baby to the hospital.…

Authorities were initially vague about what transpired in the apartment Ian shared with his parents and brother, but now say the boy’s death is being investigated as an apparent suicide.
Police are still investigating Ian’s death and determining how he got his hands on the family’s gun.
“We’re trying to definitely approach this taking care of all our responsibilities, while also being respectful that there’s an emotional trauma that’s occurred,” said Slaughter.
He went on to add that this should serve as a lesson to gun owners that they need to ensure firearms are not within easy reach of children.…

Last November, police got a call from a woman who said she was shopping in a Walmart when a “creepy” man, later identified as 26-year-old Timothy Blake, was stalking her.
