ALVIN, TX – Last year we reported on David Barajas, the man who was charged with murder after he allegedly shot a drunk driver to death moments after he fatally struck his two sons. His trial started yesterday.
On Dec 7, 2012, David Barajas’ truck ran out of gas on a rural road yards from his home. He and his two sons, 12-year-old David Barajas and 11-year-old Caleb Barajas, jumped out and began pushing the truck while Barajas’ wife and two daughters remained inside the vehicle.
At around this same time, 20-year-old Jose Banda was driving drunk when he plowed into the rear of the pickup. Caleb and his brother would both die after becoming pinned between the two vehicles. Jose Banda wold die from a bullet wound to the head.
Several witnesses present at the scene of the accident told police that after the crash, David Barajas walked the short distance to his home then returned to Jose Banda’s car. That’s when they heard gunshots. David Barajas was subsequently arrested and charged with murder.…
WEST WHITELAND TOWNSHIP, PA – Police have charged 24-year-old James Myers with cruelty to animals after he allegedly injected a kitten with heroin, choked it with a rope and slammed it to the ground.
Around 5 a.m. Sunday, a patrolling police officer noticed Myers parked in the middle of the street with his car door open. Under the door was a black kitten with a rope wrapped tightly around its neck. The kitten was lethargic, bleeding from the face and had some teeth missing.
A search of Myers car yielded bundles of heroin, hundreds of used bags of heroin, hypodermic needles, rope that matched the one wrapped around the kitten’s neck and a small box of cat shit.
The 8-week-old kitten was taken to a vet suffering from head trauma, where it was determined that the kitten had been injected with heroin. Dr. Jennifer Magilton first thought the kitten would need to be euthanized, but she first tried giving it some Narcan, a heroin antidote.
The kitten, now named Hope, immediately improved and is now expected to make a full recovery.…
WAGONER, OK – Police arrested Lorie Hill at Wagoner High School on Monday after she was found drunk in her classroom and not wearing any pants.
Hill is a newly hired teacher for Wagoner Public Schools and was found by two other teachers slumped over a desk in an empty classroom on the first day back at school for teachers.
“They didn’t know who she was, she was apparently new and was supposed to start yesterday,” Police Chief Bob Haley said.
When police arrived, they found the 49-year-old in principal’s office where someone had given her some shorts to wear. Hill admitted to police that she’d been drinking, and an empty cup smelling of vodka was found inside her car.
Since police could not prove she was intoxicated when she drove her vehicle, Hill was only charged with public intoxication. The Wagoner School District declined to comment on any possible disciplinary actions against Lorie, saying they do not comment on personnel matters.
Parents are, understandably, outraged. “I don’t know, as an adult, I just don’t know how you can be a professional teacher and teaching young people, and then show up drunk,” said one parent.…
Police were called to the home of Ward’s girlfriend at about 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Upon their arrival, they learned Ward and his girlfriend had been involved in some sort of argument, which led to Ward assaulting the woman. When the woman’s friends attempted to intervene, Ward apparently attacked them with a piece of lumber, injuring one badly enough to require a trip to the hospital.
Police arrested Ward at the scene and charged him with assault by contact/family violence and aggravated assault with deadly weapon for the lumber assault on the woman’s friend.
After Ward was transported to the Titus County Jail, officers learned that prior to their arrival, Ward had busted into a bedroom in the home and forced one of the woman’s two children, ages 8 and 9, to ingest an undisclosed amount of meth.
The child later tested positive for meth and was treated at the hospital.…
RENO, NV – Police have charged 24-year-old Jason Brown with multiple counts of animal cruelty after they say he adopted five dogs only to kill and dismember them in his motel room.
Brown was arrested on July 9 after a manager of a Super 8 Motel called police to report some gruesome shit going down inside Brown’s motel room.
He told them that a maid went in the room to clean it, and found bloodstains, dog limbs, drugs and drug paraphernalia inside. The manager told police the maid contacted him, and he found a decapitated brown dog in the room’s bathtub.
While the manager waited for police to arrive, Brown returned but then fled before police got there. Arriving police would check out the room and found four decapitated dog heads inside a small refrigerator.
Two of the dogs were named Fernell and McGee, two Chihuahua mixes given to Brown by someone who used Craigslist to place the dogs up for adoption because they could no longer care for them.…
Dorset, England – In an incident that increased the currently small number of speed boat-related murder convictions, Paul Gerlach and Louis Borzoni were sentenced to life in prison for the murder of aspiring rapper Rico Dardis.
The pair were convicted for an incident that took place May 27th of last last year in Christchurch Bay in Dorset, England. According to official reports, Gerlach, Borzoni, and Dardis were enjoying an alcohol-enhanced day-trip, when the conversation turned heated. One witness claims he heard one the convicted men saying “You are being ungrateful, you’ve smoked all my cigarettes and drunk all my beer.”
This lead to to the two men pushing Dardis off the boat and then running him over, fatally slicing the 30-year-old with the boat’s propellers. The severed parts became entangled in the propeller, which caused the boat to stop working. Rather than calling for help, the two men attempted to recover the body parts and then allowed the boat to drift to shore. Another beach-goer captured a photograph of the two men shortly after the murder.…
Mallory Loyola First Woman Charged Under New Tennessee Law That Criminalizes Drug Use During PregnancyJuly 14, 2014 at 10:43 am by Morbid
KNOXVILLE, TN – Mallory Loyola has made her family proud by becoming the first woman to be charged under a controversial Tennessee law that makes it a crime to take drugs while pregnant.
The 26-year-old was arrested and charged with assault after both she and her newborn infant tested positive for meth. The law allows a woman to be charged with assault if it’s found she illegally used a narcotic drug while pregnant and her infant ends up harmed or addicted to the drug.
Unfortunately for Loyola, this new law just went into effect this month, and she admitted to police that her infant tested positive for meth because she smoked meth just days before giving birth. The charge is a misdemeanor, and Loyola has been released on $2,000 bail.
Lawmakers hope this new law will help deter other women from using drugs while pregnant. “Hopefully it will send a signal to other women who are pregnant and have a drug problem to seek help. That’s what we want them to do,” said Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens.…
San Jose, CA — Victor Manzanares, 39, is facing multiple charges after allegedly entering a family’s home and inappropriately touching their two young daughters before attempting to burn their house down.
Officers responded to the home Monday, after receiving several reports of a naked man running rampant through the neighborhood.
While cops were combing the neighborhood, a butt nekkid Manzanares reportedly entered the home through an unlocked door. Once inside, police say, he walked into the bedroom of a 10-year-old girl and got all touchy-feely.
“He came into my room… he kissed my cheek, I thought it was my dad, and then he lied next to my bed and tried to touch my bum,” the girl said.
Not sure what caused Manzaneres to exit the room, but he soon wandered into the living room where a 12-year-old girl was napping.
“I was on the couch taking a nap,” the girl said. “I was in deep sleep when the man licked my face and I freaked out.”
The two girls rounded up their little brother and beat feet out of the house. …
WALKER, LA — Billy and Lana Henry are looking at child cruelty charges after they forgot they’d brought their infant to Walmart and left the baby in the backseat of their car.
Officers responded to the Walmart parking lot after someone called to report seeing an infant locked in the backseat of a car. Police decided to force their way into the car due to the high temperatures.
Police checked the child for injuries and called the Office of Child Services. As all this was going on, the child’s parents – Billy Henry Jr., 35, and Lana Henry, 32 – had exited the Walmart and were walking toward the car.
When questioned, neither of the dumb fucks remembered they’d even brought their kid, and that the baby must have been locked in the car for about an hour. One officer reported that while questioning the couple, they “were unsteady on their feet and had slurred speech.”
Police would learn from the couple that their condition was the result of them taking Oxycodone.…
CROWLEY, TX – A 12-year-old girl is dead after a woman had her ride on top of her car because she didn’t want the girl’s wet bathing suit messing up the car’s upholstery.
Kisha Young, 38, spent June 17 getting drunk at the Creekside Community Pool with the victim’s mother and their six children between the ages of 8 and 14.
When the group left the pool, Young had the kids ride on top of her Chevy Malibu because their bathing suits were wet.
While taking the 1-minute drive home, four of the children fell off the car as Young drove around a corner. Neither Young or the victim’s mother were aware their load had lightened until some teenagers flagged down their car at the end of the street.
Three of the children were treated at the hospital and later released, but 12-year-old Octavia Watkins was admitted with severe head injuries. She never regained consciousness and was removed from life support last Wednesday.
