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.…
According to police, 56-year-old Bruce Albee was questioned after someone called regarding a suspicious man near a vehicle. When questioned, he told the officer that the car was stolen and then attempted to flee on foot.
He didn’t get far before he was apprehended; he then admitted to the officers that the car was his stepfather’s, who they would find dead inside the home the two men shared. Police went to the home and found the body of 82-year-old Charles Marion Rees.
When interviewed, Albee told police that he and Rees lived together and had gotten into an argument over beer that turned physical. No word on whether the argument was over an actual beer, or an argument over beer-drinking in general.
Albee said Rees fell and struck his head on a table before he used a rope to strangle Rees to death. Afterward, he placed Rees on a bed and covered him with blankets.…
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fl- A former Teacher of the Year is facing 30 years in prison after turning down a plea deal and then being found guilty of having sex with a 12-year-old student.
According to reports, then-29-year-old Ethyl Anderson abused the boy between December 2011 and February 2012 in Anderson’s home during math tutoring sessions. An investigation was started that quickly led to her arrest when the boys mother went to police, concerned that her son was having sex with his teacher.
During the trial, prosecutors displayed over 230 pages of sextings between Anderson and the boy. Anderson claims the messages were intended to promote sexual therapy and academia in order to make him a better student. She stated “That was my purpose, to gain his attention. And yes, I did it in an inappropriate way,” Anderson initially denied having sex with the boy, until the boys mother captured Anderson admitting to exchanging oral sex by wearing a wiretap. Anderson later recanted the admission, stating she was merely saying what the boy’s mother wanted to hear.…
Covington, WA— We just reported on a day care being shut down after the owner hit a kid in the face with a metal chair, and now we have a day care in Washington that has been shut down after the owner was accused of molesting two girls in his care.
Jose Luis Pena-Maldenado and his wife owned and operated El Carrusel Family Childcare for over a decade until last month, when 40-year-old Pena-Maldenado admitted molesting two girls, ages 4 and 7, since January 2012.
According to court documents, one of the girls told investigators that Pena-Maldenado would touch her at nap-time and make her look at pornographic magazines. Both girls said he told them that he touched them because he loved them. Not surprisingly, he also told the girls not to tell anyone.
Senior Prosecutor Richard Anderson revealed that this isn’t the first time Pena-Maldenado has been accused of being inappropriate with children at his day care. An investigation was opened back in 2010 by state licensing authorities and the DHSH after receiving reports that he was unusually physical with the children, frequently touching their legs and rubbing their arms.…
ESCONDIDO, CA – A child care center in Escondido has been shut down after the center’s owner threw a metal chair at a 6-year-old girl,hitting the child in the face.
The incident happened in August at the Wahaha Child Care Center when the center’s owner, Xiao Yan Hu, allegedly threw a metal folding chair at 6-year-old Imani. The chair struck Imani in the face, leaving her with a bruised and scarred cheek.
According to Imani, Hu tried bribing her into not telling her mother of the incident, which was also witnessed by Imani’s 10-year-old brother, by offering her a bag of lollipops. The ploy didn’t work and Imani told her mother what happened. The California Department of Social Services eventually got involved and went to the center on Sept. 12 to interview staff and children. After they were done, they ordered the center to close its doors immediately.
“The licensee threw a chair at a child in care, causing injury to the child. The Department believes that, as a consequence, the licensee, and the continued operation of this facility, pose a risk to the health and safety of day care children,” CDSS stated in their report.…
NASHUA, NH — A father and son picked the wrong bingo game to rob the other night and ended up behind bars after some bingo volunteers fought back.
The failed robbery attempt happened last Saturday night at the Eagle’s Wing Function Center, where The Blessed John Church was wrapping up their weekly Saturday night bingo game. As one of the bingo volunteers was counting money and getting payouts ready, 46-year-old Charles Preston walked in to the office and demanded money.
“He just waltzed right in, threw a lunch bag cooler at me and said ‘throw the money in the bag’,” says the volunteer who wanted to remain anonymous. “I just sat there staring at him.” Preston wasn’t happy with the staring and tried a little motivation technique by pulling out a gun and saying, “This ain’t a joke, put the (expletive) money in the bag.”
Still not getting the reaction he was looking for, Preston put his gun down and started putting some of the $15,000 in the bag himself.…
Granite City, IL – Police are still looking for the woman accused of using her two young children to steal $100,000 worth of jewelry from a Granite Falls jewelry store.
According to police, 23-year-old Geneshia Grey walked into the Hurley and Co. Jewelry Store last month with her two young children, ages believed to be around 6 and 8. A store surveillance camera captured Grey going up to the counter to ask the store’s owner questions while her two children were busy going behind counters, sticking their little hands in the jewelry cases, and stuffing expensive adornments in small bag.
After about 20 minutes, Grey left the store with her two children and an estimated $100,000 worth of jewelry. Grey might have gotten away with it had police not been called to a home where Grey and a family member were arguing. When police arrived at the home, Grey’s relative handed them 69 empty jewelry boxes and told them Grey was involved in some kind of criminal activity.
A week later, after identifying where the stolen jewelry boxes came from, police spoke with the Hurleys, who were in the process of figuring out when they had been robbed.…
Ellenwood, GA – Police are searching for 14-year-old Ayvani Hope Perez after she was abducted from her home during a home invasion early Tuesday.
Clayton County police spokesman Phong Nguyen said that two black males pried open a back door of the home about 2:15 a.m. The mother tried hiding with her two children, but the two gunmen found them and demanded money and jewelry.
When the woman told the intruders that she did not have either of those two things, the suspects shot the family dog and took Ayvani Hope Perez with them. She was last seen being taken from the home in a gray Dodge, wearing her Star Wars pajamas.
Nguyen said the home invasion was apparently random, and that the family did not know the two men.“It didn’t appear that they knew each other,” he said. “They just moved in about a month ago.”
Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released sketches of the suspects that have posted below. Anyone with information on Perez — described as Hispanic, 4 feet, 9 inches tall and 93 pounds — or the suspects, should call 911 or Clayton County police at 678-610-4781.…
Cleveland, OH – A mother is facing child neglect charges after her 16-month-old child was found alone in an apartment with maggots crawling on her.
The child’s grandmother found her alone inside a disgusting apartment where police believe she had been left for 2-3 days with no food. The grandmother said the maggots had apparently hatched from the girl’s dirty diaper. The child was taken to the hospital to be fed, cleaned up and checked out. She is reportedly doing fine and in the care of relatives.
The child’s mother, Nikia Banks, claims that she was only gone from the apartment for about seven minutes, but investigators say it can take up to three days for maggots to form. Not sure if that means she left her child alone for that amount of time, or left a maggot-filled diaper on her child for that long. Either way, Banks was arrested and charged with felony child endangerment.
This latest charge is in addition to a neglect charge for Banks that was opened just last month leading to a social workers seeing the child, and meeting with Banks.…
RAEFORD, NC – A North Carolina soldier and his wife have been accused of filming themselves having sex with dogs, then posting the videos on the Internet.
Raeford police were first alerted to Ruben and Amber Fox, both 23, after a Virginia cybercrimes unit contacted them two weeks ago to report the couple’s bestiality videos being posted online. I’m betting the videos were posted to our go-to site when it comes to locating bestiality videos, so I may check later. For research purposes.
Investigators searched the couple’s home and seized recording devices and computer hard drives. Officers also took two mixed breed dogs and three cats from the home and placed them at a local shelter. A few years ago I would’ve assumed the cats were not involved, but now days you never know.
Ruben and Amber have both been charged with multiple counts of crimes against nature involving bestiality, disseminating obscene materials and conspiracy. Amber Fox was also charged with soliciting a crime against nature, police said. Bail was set at $15,000 each.…
Chandler, AZ - Christopher Jackson has been arrested after allegedly branding his initials onto his girlfriend’s vaginal area.
The incident occurred back in May, but the victim only recently reported it to police. According to her, Jackson, 49, wanted to go out dancing after a baseball game. The girlfriend said she was too tired, so he gave her some pills to help her stay awake. They did not.
In fact, she passed out and awoke later with extreme pain in her special lady parts and the initials, “CJ” seared into them. The girlfriend states that Jackson had bragged about branding previous girlfriends and wanted to brand her as well because “her vagina was his.”
Police found Jackson’s butane torch and branding tool inside his home. Jackson was booked into jail on aggravated assault with serious physical injury.
I found a Chris Jackson on Facebook who really likes dancing. I have a vagina (please, hold your applause) and the thought of some guy branding it is bad enough, but knowing my genitalia was mutilated by a guy who dances in pleather pants would just be adding salt to the gash.…
SANTA ANA, CA — Two children were found dead inside a Southern California hotel room, and their mother has been charged after an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
According to reports, 47-year-old Marilyn Edge intentionally drove a car with Georgia license plates into an electrical box near a Costa Mesa Home Depot on Saturday morning.
When police arrived on the scene, they found Edge trying to strangle herself with a cord she had wrapped around her neck. A propane tank was also found inside the car, one that Edge said she was hoping would have exploded when she crashed the car.
As she was being taken to the hospital, Edge told authorities that her two children, 13-year-old Jaelen and 10-year-old Faith, could be found dead inside a Hampton Inn hotel room in nearby Santa Ana. Sadly, she wasn’t bullshitting.
Turns out Edge was angry over losing custody of her children to her ex-husband, whom she’d consistently prevented the children from visiting. Instead of turning over Jaelen and Faith as a judge had ordered, she fatally poisoned them.…
CHARLOTTE, NC – A Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer has been charged with manslaughter within a few hours of shooting and killing an an unarmed man.
There are still some unanswered questions regarding this incident and what we do know is that Jonathan Ferrell got into a single-car accident in a wooded area early Saturday morning. The wreck was so bad that Ferrell had to crawl through the back window of the vehicle to get out.
Ferrell wandered a half mile before emerging from the wooded area into a nearby neighborhood. He went to a home and began banging “violently” on the front door. The woman inside opened the door, thinking it was her husband returning home from work. When she saw a large black man standing on her front porch, she shut the door and called 911.
What happened when police arrived on the scene is where some of the details are lacking. Camera footage taken from responding officer’s patrol car show an unarmed Ferrell running towards the officers while lifting up his shirt.…
Phoenix, AZ – A daycare owner has been arrested after she admitted to choking a 6-year-old girl in her care, and possibly abusing a baby with pillows.
According to the probable cause statement, when a mom arrived at 36-year-old Shan Marie McDonald’s daycare to pick up her two daughters, ages 1 and 5, she found her baby on the couch with a busted lip and unable to open her eyes. The baby was taken to the hospital where she was treated for various injuries, including bruises on her neck, shoulders, face and thighs.
When the 5-year-old was interviewed, she said she didn’t know what happened to her baby sister but did know what happened to a 6-year-old girl who was also at the daycare. According to her, she saw McDonald choke the girl because she couldn’t find her shoes.
The mother of the 6-year-old had also noticed her daughter was sporting injuries when she picked her up and had taken some pictures of marks on her throat and scratches on her forehead. …
A loopy bird in Florida has been accused of posing as a television show producer and scamming thousands of dollars from businesses who believed they would be featured on a Fox television show.
According to police, Jessie Alexander contacted several Palm Beach businesses to let them know that for the low, low price of $3,500, they could have their business featured on a new show on FOX 29 titled “Best of the Palm Beaches”.
In return, the publicity would garner the business $47,000 of publicity after it aired on May 19. One of these business owners, Linda Gary, ponied up the cash to have her Worth Avenue real estate firm featured, but called police when the show never aired and Alexander would not return her phone calls.
Police investigated and quickly found out that Alexander was not affiliated with FOX 29 and did not have permission to use the station’s logo, which was on the agreements Alexendar had her victims sign.…
SPOKANE, Washington – Motorists in Spokane started calling police on Sunday after getting an eyeful of a pious pedestrian. Witnesses told officers that William “Billy” Ogan, 31, was masturbating on the side of the road and displaying his penis to women.
Ogan confirmed this, telling police he was celebrating his “new marriage” to God, “working for Jehovah,” and “spreading God’s word.” God reportedly wanted Ogan to show his penis to women in order to teach them about sex. At press time, God had not responded to calls seeking his side of the story, and, of course, he cannot be forced to testify against Ogan thanks to spousal privilege.
Ogan was supposed to appear in court for three counts of indecent exposure on Tuesday, but “he refused to participate in the court process,” so he had to go on Wednesday instead. When Billy showed up, he did so without a lawyer and told the judge he didn’t feel anyone else in Spokane County could defend him.
“The legal system here in this facility, they don’t do the job, so I feel better representing myself,” Ogan said while surrounded by three deputies.…
Greenwich, CT - A man told police he “lost it” when he bashed his wife’s skull in with a baseball bat inside their mansion after learning she was leaving him.
Police responded to the $7.3 million estate of Michael and Diane DeMaio on Tuesday after receiving a report of a domestic situation with injuries. Once inside, they found Diane, 54, laying in a pool of blood inside a large closet with three ice packs placed under her badly disfigured head.
“What, hello, what’s going on,” she said before closing her eyes. Police tried to put pressure to a large gash on her head, “but felt it was soft”.
Also in the home was Diane’s elderly mother, Gloria Sica, who was screaming that Michael had attacked her daughter. “That monster hit her and she’s dying,” she screamed. An officer drew his gun on Michael and placed him in custody. The 55-year-old would confess to using a baseball bat to bash his wife’s head in.
“I lost it, I just lost it,” he told the officers as he lay handcuffed on the ground, explaining he became enraged shortly after learning his wife was leaving him.…
EFFINGHAM, IL – A man in Illinois has been charged with the murder of his 7-year-old niece after claiming that she fell on a stick andneeded to be put “out of her misery.”
Willow Long, 7, lived at her grandparents’ home with her mother, Ciarra and her uncle, Justin. Willow was reported missing on Sunday after her mother said she lay down for a nap, leaving the girl watching television with her 3-year-old brother, and woke up to find she’d vanished.
When she asked her son about Willow’s whereabouts, the boy pointed to the front door. Willow had apparently changed clothes before leaving the house, and had left her glasses behind. After failing to locate her, Willow’s mother called police.
Investigators were first working on the theory that Willow had left the house to re-enact scenes from THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, the movie she was allegedly watching when she was last seen, so the search initially focused on nearby bodies of water.
More than 300 volunteers and members of the FBI, the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, the Watson Police and the Illinois State Patrol took part in the search that ended 30 hours later, when four volunteers found Willow’s body a few miles from her home.…
