WICHITA, KS — Laticia Davis, the 36-year-old woman who was found in a park after having been raped and set on fire, has died.
On Nov 14, firefighters responding to a fire at Fairmount Park found Davis suffering from severe burns on more than half of her body and cuts on her head. She was taken to the hospital where she remained in critical condition for the last week before dying Saturday morning.
Investigators were never able to speak to Davis while she was hospitalized, but were able to collect forensic evidence. This evidence was used to link 26-year-old Cornell McNeal to the attack. No further details have been given aside from police stating they believe the attack followed a “random encounter”.
McNeal was arrested on Friday and charged with attempted capital murder and rape. Now that Davis has died, those charges will be amended, according to Police Lt. James Espinoza. He’s also facing arson charges after being linked to a fire set at the park and at a garage.…
It happened on Friday night as Campbell was riding in a car driven by her 33-year-old boyfriend. The boyfriend would later tell police that they’d recently bought the gun in case shit went down over the grand jury’s decision on the shooting of Michael Brown.

Early Tuesday morning, 27-year-old Matthew Luedeman arrived at a Cenex gas station wearing nothing but a pair of jeans and doused himself with gasoline.
“He took the gas nozzle, turned the gas pump on, held the nozzle above his head and poured gasoline on himself,” Police Chief Bruce Lang said. “He then set himself on fire.”
Luedeman was reportedly engulfed in flames for 10 seconds before he tried pouring more gasoline on himself, but by that time the clerk inside the gas station had already tuned off the gas pumps.

AUBURN, WA – Laszlo Molnar has been arrested after police say the 67-year-old was caught on camera raping an 83-year-old dementia patient in his care.
Molnar is one of the owners of AA Adult Family Home, a home care facility that specializes in Alzheimer’s. He was allegedly busted after the family of one of his patients feared she was being abused and placed a hidden camera in her room.
To their horror, they reportedly captured Molnar sexually assaulting the 83-year-old woman. After reviewing the footage, police took Molnar into custody and charged him with second degree rape.
“It’s a very disturbing video. Obviously very disturbing, very traumatizing for the victim and the family,” said Auburn police Commander Mark Caillier.
The home has since been shut down and all 12 residents were taken away and placed in new homes. Since many of them suffer from dementia and can’t communicate clearly, they’re all being checked for signs of sexual assault.

WATERFORD TWP, MI – Two teens are looking at spending the rest of their lives behind bars after allegedly trying to hire a hitman to kill someone.
According to police, they received information last month that 18-year-old Mia Buscemi and 19-year-old Dallys Vogel were looking to pay someone to kill a man who lived in Flint.
An undercover detective posing as a hitman made contact with the girls and a place and time was set to meet. During the meeting, the two idiots offered the detective $2000 to kill a man, even going as far as specifying how they wanted it done.
“Buscemi lost a boyfriend in a shooting at a party in Flint two years ago,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said. “The two women believe the man responsible got away with murder and were looking for street justice. They wanted him killed. They even bargained down the price.”
After the deal was sealed, police arrested the girls on charges of solicitation to commit murder and conspiracy to commit murder. …
CHINA – Two-year-old Wei “Keke” Tsao was killed and had his head partially eaten by the family pig after he crawled into the animal’s pen while his parents were not looking.
According to reports, Keke had been playing outside in the garden but crawled into a pig pen after his parents stepped inside there home for a moment. The pen housed a sow who deemed Keke a threat to her piglets when he got too close.
Keke’s father said they were only inside for a couple of minutes when they heard Keke’s screams. They ran outside to find the boy in the pen with the pig “gnawing on Keke’s head.”
Neighbors rushed to the scene after hearing the boy’s screams, but after wrestling the pig to the ground it was apparent there was nothing that could be done for Keke as a portion of his head had been eaten.
The pig was ultimately beat to death and tied to a tree before having it’s stomach split open. A lot of commenters seem to stop at this point so they can post that the pig should not have been killed because it was just protecting its young. …

Ledelldra Brooks says when she showed up unannounced to her 7-year-old daughter’s classroom at Viking Elementary School, she found her daughter wearing a dirty diaper inside a makeshift enclosure made from a toddler gate and a crib gate that were attached to bookshelves.
Not happy with the situation, Brooks immediately took her daughter out of the classroom, notified the school’s principal and called police. A teacher’s aide explained to the responding investigators that the girl was one of seven children in the classroom and that the enclosure, which had been there for three years, was not used for punishment.
The aide said students were put in the gated area when they were out of control or posed a risk to themselves and classmates. In the case of Brooks’ daughter, the girl had been disruptive in class and had scratched one of the aides.…

Natalie Bree Hajek-Richardson says she was in the checkout line when a child between the age of 4 and 6 began throwing a tantrum. She said the tantrum itself didn’t bother her, but it was very loud and hurting her ears.
She says she politely asked the mother if she could do something to keep the kid’s trap shut and, well, things didn’t go so well from there.
“She came to the side of me and told me not to tell her child what to do. And I told her that I didn’t ask your child what to do, I asked you very nicely to calm down your child just a little bit,” she said.
An argument ensued, with Hajek-Richardson telling the woman to go to hell. The woman replied with, “I’ll see you there.” Hell turned out to be the parking lot and the mother made good on her promise.…
SOUTH WALES – Just two weeks after being released from prison, 34-year-old Matthew Williams was killed by police after he was found in a hotel room chewing off a woman’s face.
Williams was just released from prison after serving half of a five year prison sentence for violently attacking his girlfriend. He and 22-year-old Cerys Yemm were inside a room at the Sirhowy Arms Hotel, a facility used as temporary accommodation for homeless people, and Williams was high on coke.
The halfway house does not allow residents to have overnight guests, so hotel security went to Williams room to tell him Yemm needed to leave. Williams refused to answer or open the door, so security let themselves in and stumbled into a nightmare.
According to the reports, they found Williams eating Yemm’s face off.
They immediately called police who responded and found Williams still in the room attacking Yemm. He’d gouged out both of her eyes and had eaten them, and had also removed half of her face.
Police ended up using a high-voltage taser, knocking him to the floor.…

Pankratius, 36, got angry when a couple pulled into a parking space she’d been waiting for. She called them “douche bags” before driving off to find another spot. At this point, I’m with Pankratius. Having a spot taken from you can be infuriating, even if it was done unintentionally.
But Pankratius couldn’t let it go and turned her vehicle around and speeded toward the couple as they were walking towards the store. Pankratius says she only meant to scare them, but she allegedly came within inches of the man and hit the woman, 40-year-old Julie Weakly, with her driver’s side mirror.
Weakly didn’t need medical treatment, but even so, Pankratius’ actions were as unacceptable as they were illegal. She was quickly identified by police via her license tag and was cooperative with police once contacted.
She admitted to being the driver who hit the woman, saying she “felt really bad about it” and was “really scared.” She was arrested and charged with assault and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony – both felonies.…
