BARTLESVILLE, OK – A mother has been arrested after allowing her 10-year-old daughter to get a tattoo with ink that contained human ashes.
Jennifer Wilson, 31, is facing child neglect charges after a school counselor at Jane Phillips Elementary School contacted Washington County Child Welfare about a tattoo they noticed on the left side of the girl’s body. Wilson was arrested with her husband, 33-year-old Amos Wilson, during a drug raid Thursday morning. Amos was allegedly breaking bad and making meth inside the home.
After the couple were questioned by police, they learned that the person responsible for giving the young girl the tattoo was an unlicensed tattoo artist, 31-year-old Brandon Brown. He was charged with unlawful tattooing and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He told investigators that despite not having a license to practice, he was a very clean tattoo artist and didn’t expose his clients to any health risks.
I know that the words “clean” and “health risks” can evoke various different definitions depending on the person you ask, but Sgt Elizabeth Mitchell said they checked out Brown’s workspace and found that “there were live and dead baby roaches present, along with roach feces on the open box of disposable gloves.” They also found the ink that was used on the girl had been mixed with human ashes.…
PLATTE COUNTY, MO – A 14-year-old freshman at Park Hill High School died after taking what he thought was acid. Ethan Rickman was found dead by Platte County Sheriff’s Office deputies and paramedics after they were called to a home just before 2:30 a.m. Friday.
Another 14-year-old boy in the home, identified as Z.S. in court documents, was treated after telling the police that he and Rickman had each ingested three hits of acid. A 16-year-old girl in the home told police she was with the two boys when they purchased the drugs from 17-year-old Krista Meeks (pictured).
Meeks was questioned by police and she admitted she’d sold the two boys what they thought was LSD, except that it wasn’t. She said it was actually “a research chemical drug that mimics the effects of LSD,” according to court documents.
She went on to say that even though she’s a heavy drug user, she refuses to take the drug “because the effects are so harsh and violent” and that she’d read articles in which people have died after taking the drug.…
Redmond, WA – The ex-wife of Eric Lehtinen arrived at his home Tuesday to pick up their 4-year-old son and found that Lehtinen had attempted to kill the boy by injecting him with heroin.
When the unidentified woman got inside the locked home after a job interview, she found Lehtinen unconscious, as was their son who also had a syringe sticking out of his chest. Both were rushed to the hospital where staff found indications of needle marks on the boy’s neck and buttocks.
Tests would reveal he’d been injected with a drug cocktail of heroin, ketamine, morphine, codeine, and other drugs. The latest reports have him listed in stable condition, but doctors are unsure of what long-term damage the drugs may have caused.
Lehtinen was released from the hospital and sent straight to jail. He did not collect $200. He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder. He’s being held on $3 million bail after prosecutors described him as a “man who is willing to inject his 4-year-old son with heroin in an attempt to kill the boy” and a “dangerous man willing to do anything.” If convicted, Lehtinen will be looking at a minimum of 15 years behind bars.…
PLATTE COUNTY, MO – Police have arrested a man after the body of 35-year-old Tangela Fisher was found stuffed inside a homemade wooden box.
The box, and its gruesome contents, were found Friday morning in a dry creek bed off East Dye Store Road. It hasn’t been reported how detectives eventually identified 51-year-old Martin Lee Williams as a possible suspect, but when he was interviewed he admitted to accidentally killing Fisher while the two did drugs inside his home.
According to Williams, he prepared a syringe containing a controlled substance for both of them to use, then injected it into Fisher’s arm. When Fisher became unresponsive, Williams decided not to call for help and let her die of a drug overdose.
Now the proud owner of a dead woman, Williams decided it would be in his best interest to dispose of the body. So, using a bit of ingenuity and some tools, Williams used some scrap wood and a ping-pong table to craft Fisher a coffin. Once completed, Williams placed Fisher in the box and then dumped it where it was later discovered.…
San Antonio, TX – A 67-year-old Texas man was sentenced to 35 years in prison after being convicted last month of raping his son’s prom date.
The incident happened In May 2012, after Ismael Cruz’s son and his son’s 19-year-old girlfriend returned home from the prom. Because they had been drinking heavily, the girlfriend decided to spend the night.
The girl told police that she woke up in the middle of the night with her dress partially removed and someone on top of her. When she realized it wasn’t her boyfriend, but rather her boyfriend’s father, she pushed Cruz away and screamed for help.
Cruz’s son ran out and began beating him, and continued to try and get his hands on him even while police were on the scene. Cruz, who has two prior drunk driving convictions, told investigators he’d drank more than 60 beers that night.
Cruz’s attorney had asked state District Judge Ray Olivarri for the minimum penalty of 25-years in prison. Judge Olivarri took the attorney’s suggestion under consideration, then sentenced Cruz to 35 years behind bars.…
A woman was hospitalized last week after stealing $5,000 from her boyfriend and then trying to use a toilet brush to remove the stolen money from her ass.
Police were called to a home where a man said his soon-to-be ex-girlfriend, 43-year-old Christie Black, had stolen $5000 dollars. The man told police he’d suspected Black had been stealing from him so he set a trap for Black by placing two envelopes containing $5,000 in $100 bills in an old medicine bag that he then placed on a foosball table.
The man went to bed, only to wake up later to find Black was still awake and the medicine bag was missing. When he confronted Black about the missing money, Black reportedly became ill and puked up a baggy containing partially dissolved pills.
When he asked if his missing money would be coming up next, she explained that it might, just not from that end.…
Berne, NY – A 50-year-old New York man died the other day after a booby trap he’d placed to protect some pot plants turned his ass into a human Pez dispenser.
Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said Daniel Ricketts was driving an ATV in the backyard of his property around 2:30 p.m. Saturday when he ran into a heavy gauge wire that had been placed at neck height.
The heavy gauge wire was one of several booby traps Ricketts had set up to protect four marijuana plants he planted on his property. Ricketts was nearly decapitated by the wire and died after being thrown from his ATV. Apple says alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.
Police found several other traps Ricketts had placed to protect his sweat leaf, including a barbed wire trap and a leg trap similar to those used to trap coyotes. The marijuana plants were removed from the property on Saturday, but so far there have been no arrests.
Sheriff Apple said it’s common for people to use the rural hills in the area to grow pot.…
ASHLAND, WV – Sheriff’s deputies say they arrested a pair of McDowell County parents after they found the couples’ young children living in filth, being held in a room where they were handling and eating human excrement. Yum.
According to WVVA, Michael Paul Perry, 28, and Crystal Sidney Perry, 19, were arrested and charged with child abuse creating substantial risk of injury. Not to mention bad breath.
Martin West, the McDowell County Sheriff, told WVVA TV that detectives responded to a call from Child Protective Services employees who were trying to remove the kids from the home in the Ashland area on Thursday afternoon. Not surprisingly, the parents weren’t eager to cooperate and the employees told police they felt threatened.
Officers say that when they entered the residence, they found two toddlers, ages 1 and 2, being kept in a room where they were eating human waste. A criminal complaint filed in McDowell County Magistrate Court said the children were ‘filthy’, and worse.
“The room in which the children were being held had human excrement on the floor and that the children had been eating the excrement,” the complaint said.…
Police say 23-year-old Sean Carnell’s reign of bath salt terror started around 9:30 a.m. at Tully Park when he fed a 15-year-old boy several knuckle sandwiches before stealing the kid’s skateboard.
Carnell is then believed to have knocked a nearby cyclist unconscious before kicking a 10-year-old boy’s dog in the ribs. From there, Carnell made his way to 8th Street where he beat the shit out of a construction worker with a shovel.
Trevor McMillan told reporters the victim’s name is Mike Rice that he’d been working in a ditch when Carnell came up behind him, “took the shovel sideways” and hit Rice across the face several times. Rice ended up in the hospital with several bones broken in his face, along with a spinal injury.
But Carnell wasn’t done. After re-arranging Rice’s face with a shovel, he forced his way into an apartment and tried to strangle a 36-year-old woman.…
Lauderhill, FL - Two police officers turned themselves in last week amid allegations that they pressured two female DUI suspects into giving them sexual favors in return for not arresting them. One officer allegedly ordered one of the women to punch him in the nuts because it turned him on.
Police officer Thomas Merenda, 34, and his partner, Franklin Hartley, 33, pulled over two intoxicated women around 4 am at a Taco Bell. The women allege that Hartley told them he could arrest them, but then told them to drive behind a strip mall where Merenda was waiting.
Hartley followed them and once there, began to “kiss and touch” the passenger’s breasts “while reminding her she could be arrested.” Then he reportedly ordered her to have sex with him, which she did.
At the same time, Merenda gave the other female a very thorough “pat down” and then asked her to punch him in the “nuts” and “reassured her that this was ok and this turned him on.” His ever-helpful partner encouraged the woman to do so by saying that he “really enjoys this” and the woman kicked Merenda in the balls.…
WASHINGTON, D.C. Police have charged a 33-year-old man with punching his girlfriend’s 4-year-old several times in the abdomen with enough force to lacerate his liver.
According to police, Peter Hendy was watching Kamari Taylor on Monday when the boy rode his scooter into the street. When Hendy reprimanded the boy, Kamari allegedly told Hendy, “I don’t have to listen to you…you’re not my daddy.”
Hendy didn’t like that response, so he punched the boy twice in the abdomen, then let Kamari ride away on his scooter. He then called the boy’s mother several times to say he had to discipline her son for being a smart mouth kid. When the little boy returned home 45 minutes later, he was sweating profusely and shaking with severe bruising to his midsection.
Instead of getting him any help, Hendy put the boy to bed and gave him some water. He then went outside to sell marijuana. When he came back inside an hour later, he found Kamari’s condition had worsened and he now had a “blank look” on his face.…
CALDWELL COUNTY, NC – Three men have been arrested for making meth after one of them called 911 claiming he got lost in the woods while searching for paranormal activity.
Police say they received a call Monday night from 39-year-old Sonny Clay Hyatt. He told them he and his friends had been out investigating ghost stories in the woods when they got separated. Hyatt told the dispatch that he was now lost in the woods and needed help getting out.
Deputies ended up using Hyatt’s cell phone signal to track him down, but his story just didn’t sound right. After further questioning, Hyatt admitted that he and his two friends, 38-year-old Thomas Glenn Imler Jr. and 31-year-old Eric John Schmidt, weren’t in the woods looking for spooky ghosts – they were in the woods to make sweet, sweet meth.
Wyatt told them that they had gone into the woods to make meth because they were too afraid to do it in their apartment. The three got into an argument when their cook failed, and his two friends left him in the woods and made it safely back to their apartment.…
GULFPORT, FL — The driver of the school bus accused by some of not doing enough to protect a 13-year-old kid who was getting his ass kicked by three teens will not face any charges.
According to Gulfport police, the bus had left Lealman Intermediate School when three 15-year-olds — Lloyd Khemradj, Julian McKnight and Joshua Reddin — punched and kicked the 13-year-old victim dozens of times, fracturing his hand and robbing him before leaving via the rear emergency door.
The motive behind the beating stems from the victim telling school officials that one of the attackers had tried to sell him pot in the school bathroom two weeks earlier. The three boys are now facing charges of aggravated battery with one of them facing an additional charge of robbery for taking the victim’s cash.
Police initially wanted charges filed against the bus driver, 64-year-old John Moody, for failing to properly help the victim. “There was clearly an opportunity for him to intervene and or check on the welfare of the children or the child in this case and he didn’t make any effort to do so,” said Chief Robert Vincent of Gulfport Police Department.…
Moab, UT – Think you are having a bad day? Well a cop in Utah has been accused of trying to kill his father after he caught him having sex with his wife.
According to reports, 33-year-old Timothy John “TJ” Brewer, a deputy with the sheriff’s department in Grand County, invited his father, Moab fire chief Wesley “Corky” Brewer, to his home for dinner and drinks.
Sometime in the early morning hours, TJ’s wife, Logan Brewer, said she was going to take one of their children to bed. When that kid came back downstairs, TJ realized he was alone and went upstairs to find the door to his 4-year-old son’s bedroom was locked. When he made entry, he found his wife on top of his father, with “his dad’s dick” inside her.
As you can imagine, poor TJ lost it. He “beat the fuck” out of his old man before leaving the room and coming back with a handgun. Logan told investigators that she heard her husband “rack a round” into the gun’s chamber before he started smacking her around a bit.…
Baltimore, MD – A grandmother’s attempt to get her grandson to go to sleep by applying methadone to his gums worked a bit too well and now she’s in jail facing murder charges.
On July 4, Towanda Reaves was watching her two grandchildren and put them to bed at around 8pm. She called 911 at 4am the following morning when she found one of the children unresponsive. Despite attempts to revive 17-month-old Aadyn Overton, he was pronounced dead at the hospital an hour later.
Police initially thought the death was accidental until they received a call from the hospital. Turns out the dead infant’s younger sister was admitted to the hospital later that same day and tested positive for methadone. When questioned, Reaves admitted she’d rubbed methadone on both of the infants’ gums to help them go to sleep.
Reaves was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, child abuse resulting in death, first- and second-degree assault, first-degree child abuse and reckless endangerment.
Those who knew Reaves say they are shocked at the allegations, saying that the woman seemed like a doting grandmother.…
STONINGTON, CT – A 10-year-old boy in the backseat of his father’s car called 911 to report his dad was driving drunk moments before his father crashed.
Rhode Island State Police received a 911 call from the boy who said he and his 12-year-old sister were passengers in a Mercedes driven by their father, Owen Gilman. The boy said he was in fear for his life because his old man was drunk and driving erratically.
The boy told them he was so scared that he was contemplating jumping from the moving vehicle because that would be better than crashing at the speeds his father was currently driving. The boy didn’t have time to test his theory, because moments later his father rear-ended a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Gilman hit the Jeep so hard that he sent it 50 feet off the shoulder of the interstate and down an embankment where it overturned. The driver of the Jeep was taken to the hospital to be treated for blunt force trauma and lacerations and was last listed in fair condition. …
Anaconda, MT - Jeremy Brent Cramer, 38, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to stabbing and beating his 3 year old son to death and leaving his body in a field in southwestern Montana.
On July 8th, Cramer’s wife, Nataliya, called police in their hometown of Lacey, WA to report that her husband had left with their son and now she could not get a hold of him. She was alarmed to discover that he had used his gas card to fill up in Moses Lake, about 3 1/2 hours away from their home, but she did not think her son was in danger, so no Amber Alert was issued. There was a missing person report and a “be on the lookout” for Cramer and his son.
Later that same day in Montana, Cramer was discovered in a bathroom by a convenience store clerk, washing blood from his clothes and minus a son. Apparently, he had hitched a short ride there and the man who gave Cramer a ride asked him about the blood on his clothes, to which Cramer responded, “I had a traumatic experience and no one is dead.” Liar. …
SAN DIEGO, CA – A man is in the hospital after driving his car off a cliff in the Sunset Cliffs neighborhood of San Diego.
According to San Diego police, the driver of a sedan sped through a locked gate and off a 40-foot tall cliff, slamming into the beach below, in the early morning of July 29th.
The vehicle, shown suspended from tow cables in this photo, has extensive damage to both the front and the rear. The driver was able to walk away from the vehicle and ignored onlookers shouting at him from the top of the bluffs. “He was pretty unresponsive,” said a witness. “He didn’t look up at us.”
When rescuers arrived the man resisted rescue efforts, preventing them from placing him inside a rescue helicopter. Maurice Luque, of the San Diego Fire Rescue Department said, “He was combative, he wanted to fight with our crews, he wanted to be left alone.”
The fire rescue captain stated, “We put him in a bag called a Bowman bag which pretty much just wraps him up like a burrito.” The human burrito was then transported to the hospital via helicopter with “serious but not life-threatening” injuries.…
