In The Mean Time...
Raleigh, NC – An 11-year-old boy hanged himself the other day because, according to his parents, he was incessantly bullied at school over his love of the cartoon My Little Pony.
According to Michael Morones’ parents, the boy decided to put a stop to the bullying by hanging himself off the side of his bunk bed. He was found before he killed himself, but not before he deprived his brain of oxygen and caused potentially life-long brain damage.
“We won’t know for months how much is going to heal,” said his mother, Tiffany. “It could even be years before we find out what potential for healing he has.”
Surprisingly, she is not trying to have her son’s alleged bullies found and punished. “I’ve heard a lot of people say you need to go after bullies and hold them responsible,” said Tiffany. “But you know, I don’t think that’s what Mike would want. I would rather teach people how to do right than turn around than punish, because punishment doesn’t always work.”
Morones is currently in critical condition at children’s hospital WakeMed where he is scheduled to have a tracheotomy today.…Continue Reading
Here, Now – First, let me personally thank each and every one of you who have pledged. We have only been using Patreon for about a month and, overall, I am happy with it. I haven’t spammed the Patreon page over the last couple of weeks, so pledging has stalled a bit, but I have no doubt we can reach a monthly pledge amount that will allow me to remove all banner ads from the site.
For those of you unaware, we have decided to use Patreon in an attempt to crowdfund the site. You can read the long explanation over on our Patreon page. But the short story is the site keeps getting more expensive, but the ad revenue does not change. I could use shitty ads that pop-up\under or fly-over, but I hate those and most of you are probably using some kind of ad-blocking software.
So we though we would see what would happen if we tried not sucking up to advertisers and relied solely on our fanbase for funding, allowing us to focus purely on beautiful, uncensored content.…Continue Reading
KISSIMMEE, FL – Police have arrested 41-year-old Letina Smith after she was accused of subjecting three children under the age of 10 to a punishment called “the electric chair” that included zaps from a pink stun gun.
The alleged practice came to light after one of the kids got into trouble at school and pleaded with her teacher not to call her home and tell she’d misbehaved in class. The girl explained that she and her two brothers lived with her aunt and she was afraid of being punished with Letina’s electric chair.
“(She) explained that the punishment was to get touched with a ‘taser,’” the arrest report stated. “The electric chair consists of the child who is in trouble holding themselves… with their back on the wall and their legs forming a chair. They have to stay there for an hour and if they speak or move Letina will come up to them with the electrical weapon, “taser,” and activate and touch them with it.”
Police interviewed all three children separately and were given similar stories involving Letina and her pink stun gun.…Continue Reading
Napa, CA – Police have arrested Sara Krueger and Scott Warner, the couple who were being sought in connection to the death of Krueger’s 3-year-old daughter, after someone recognized them inside a restaurant.
Police were looking for Krueger and Warner after Krueger’s daughter, Kayleigh Slusher, was found dead on Saturday. The little girl was discovered by police conducting a welfare check at the couple’s apartment based on an anonymous phone tip.
Kayleigh was found lying on a bed and appeared to have suffered blunt force trauma, said Napa police Lt. Debbie Peecook, adding, “There is also preliminary evidence of a sexual assault.”
Neighbors told police they had seen Krueger and Warner leaving the apartment several hours earlier, carrying luggage. Napa police reached out to the public to help find the couple so they could be questioned, and it didn’t take long before someone gave them a call.
On Sunday, someone saw the couple 30 miles away at a restaurant near a Bay Area Rapid Transit station in El Cerrito.…Continue Reading

NEW STRAITSVILLE, OH – Police have accused a woman of abusing her two granddaughters in a variety of ways, including forcing one girl to put some shit-stained underwear in her mouth.
Investigators got involved after they received a complaint that 54-year-old Karen Sharpe was abusing her two granddaughters, ages 11 and 13. They were given cellphone video taken by the older girl that contained “the most disgusting, heinous child abuse I’ve ever seen,” according to Sheriff’s Office Detective Sgt. Ed Downs.
The video allegedly shows Sharpe stuffing a dirty pair of men’s underwear in the 11-year-old’s mouth, then taping her mouth shut. After the girl ends up vomiting because the underwear was soiled with shit, Sharpe tells the girl to “swallow it”. This particular abuse was the result of the young girl accidentally stepping on Sharpe’s injured foot.
Sharpe was also accused of hitting the older girl in the face, a girl who already has a steel plate in her head from past abuse at the hands of another adult, causing a large amount of bruising. …Continue Reading
CHANDLER, AZ – Police have charged 65-year-old Rose Mary Vogel with attempted murder after they say she put shit in her husband’s IV while he was recovering from heart surgery.
Vogel was with her husband in his recovery room at Chandler Regional Medical Center when two nurses walked in and found Vogel handling her husband’s IV. The nurses said they saw Vogel touching the IV pump when the pump’s alarm went off, and said she told told them the line needed to be flushed.
One of the nurses noticed something brown in the line and removed it from the man’s arm. She went for help when she noticed the line smelled like shit. When the nurse returned to the room, she said Vogel was trying to empty the IV bag into the trash, but the nurse was able to get it away from her.
Tests would later show that the brown substance was fecal matter. Vogel was originally looking at an aggravated assault charge until investigators searched her purse and found two syringes containing fluid, and a third syringe with what appeared to be traces of feces.…Continue Reading
FORT WAYNE, ID – Ashley Ann-Marie Walton, 28, is facing battery and neglect charges after admitting she threw her baby against a wall when she could not get the infant to stop crying.
On January 10, Walton called 911 to report her baby girl was lethargic and her face was swollen. She said she woke up to her infant’s cries and found the baby lying on the bedroom floor with her three-year-old daughter standing nearby saying, “ut oh”. Walton sad she thought her older daughter had accidentally dropped the infant on her head.
Walton’s baby was rushed to the hospital in critical condition suffering from a skull fracture and brain bleeding. I’m assuming the injuries were more severe than being dropped on her head, so police decided to interview Walton at the police station. Walton stuck to her original story that she’d called 911 at 12:03 pm, immediately after finding her daughter injured.
Police confiscated Walton’s cell phone to verify her story, and found Walton was more concerned about getting drugs than she was about her injured infant. …Continue Reading
EAST ELMHURST, NY – A man brutally bludgeoned his girlfriend and her daughter with a hammer Wednesday because he believed them to be witches casting spells upon him.
44-year-old Carlos Alberto Amarillo turned a simple, household hammer into a deadly weapon when he used it to bludgeon his girlfriend, Estrella Castaneda, 56, and her daughter, 24-year-old Lina Castaneda, because he believed they were active practitioners of “Voodoo”.
Both women suffered blunt force trauma to the head and were pronounced dead at the scene, authorities confirmed. A neighbor said they heard what appeared to be banging the evening of the murders though no yells or screams were present.
Lina Castaneda’s 7-year-old daughter was mere feet from her mother who was left face down on her bedroom floor with a bloody hammer next to her corpse. The girl was removed from the house unharmed.
Estrella Castaneda was found in another bedroom with a pillow covering her face, blood surrounding the bed and the wall next to her. The rubber grip of the hammer lay beside her (Unholy Fuckhole!).…Continue Reading

After Amania… fuck that finger twisting name. After Mr. A calmed down a bit, the wife apparently approached him with the idea of a separation. Gee.. I wonder why. This did not please Mr. A, and meltdown #2 was soon in progress.
This time, police say, Mr. A’s rage was directed at his wife’s cat, which he choked and threw against a door.

The woman was eventually able to corral both of her cats and leave the house.…Continue Reading
That’s it. I have heard it all. Time to shut off the internet. Well, maybe after I finish this story….
The dick slapping incident apparently occurred sometime early Tuesday morning. A man living in the home told police he heard a knock at the door at about 3:00 that morning, and when he answered, was confronted by two males holding guns. Real guns, ya perverts.
Anyway, the two unidentified males entered the home and demanded cash. When the man who answered the door came up dry, the suspects apparently busted into a bedroom occupied by the man’s 33-year-old daughter-in-law.
Authorities say one of the men held a gun to the woman’s head and demanded money. When the woman stated she had none, one of the two whipped out his Johnson and began hitting her in the face with it. And while he’s at it, he’s yelling, “*censored* give me the money.” No word on whether the member was flaccid or at full attention.…Continue Reading
MARIANNA, FL – Researchers and forensic anthropologists have uncovered the remains of 55 people on the now closed school grounds of the notorious Arthur G. Dozier Reform School for Boys in northwest Florida.
For decades, families of the missing boys have sought answers to long asked questions regarding the mysterious disappearances amid reports of beatings, torture, and sexual assault that occurred at the reform school which operated from 1900 to 2011.
During the nearly two-year project, there have been 55 bodies uncovered; “five more than previous field work had indicated and 24 more than listed in school records.” The aim is to verify the identities and ages as well as the timing and circumstances surrounding their deaths.
Researchers led excavations at or around Boot Hill, which is an unmarked cemetery located on school grounds. Using tools such as ground-penetrating radar, DNA samples, and search dogs, the team investigated the area for unmarked graves that may have belonged to the growing list of boys reported missing over the many years of the school’s operation.…Continue Reading
Norris was last seen by his parents on Tuesday, but they thought he was staying with a friend. On Thursday afternoon, his stepmother found him slumped over in the front seat of his pickup truck parked in the driveway. According to reports, it was hard to see him inside the truck from the outside.
Police are waiting on autopsy results to find out exactly how Norris died and how long he may been in the truck. There was no evidence of foul play and no signs of drugs or alcohol being involved. His family said Norris frequently spent long periods of time inside the truck using his cell phone to talk with friends.
Ohio is one of many states experiencing freezing temperatures lately and on the day he was found, temperatures in the area had dropped in the low zero degrees. I guess it’s possible he went to the truck to use his phone and wait for his friend to get him, and succumbed to the cold.…Continue Reading
Pennsauken, NJ – A man was arrested for driving under the influence after crashing his car outside a fried chicken joint and then disrobing to masturbate in public.
On Monday, 34-year-old Vincent Wade veered his car across an intersection and drove on to the curb, hitting a fixed object outside the Crown Fried Chicken restaurant. No injuries were reported, but witnesses reported Wade got out of his car and began yelling while undressing.

The body of 52-year-old Harold Sasko was found in his home on January 17 after the family of one of his former employees, 19-year-old Sarah McLinn, called police to report her missing. Sasko owned several CiCi’s pizza places in the area and had let McLinn move into his home in 2012.
Officers who found Sasko say he had suffered several traumatic injuries, and believed he was subdued and unconscious before an “edged device” was used to kill him. McLinn’s car was still in the driveway, but Sasko’s car and dog were misssing.
Police immediately began searching the area for McLinn and issued a nationwide alert to be on the lookout for McLinn and Sasko’s Altima. That searched ended a week later when, 1500 miles away, Rangers found McLinn illegally camping at Everglades National Park. She was living in Sasko’s car and was found with drugs and Sasko’s dog, Oliver.…Continue Reading

Meghan Sherron said it was routine for her to leave for work while her longtime, live-in boyfriend would take him to daycare. But last Friday, Marrone called her at work to inform her that her son’s genitals were swollen.

VENANGO TOWNSHIP, PA — A 12-year-old boy in Pennsylvania is facing animal cruelty charges after police say he intentionally killed a dog by injecting the animal with air.
According to police, the boy stole some syringes from a neighbor and used them to inject air into the family dog, a Labrador mix. After being injected, the dog became ill for a week before dying. Police say the boy knew that by injecting air into the dog’s blood vessels, that the dog could die.
The investigation is continuing, but Trooper Jason Domenick says he expects theft and cruelty to animals charges to be filed against the boy in juvenile court.
“I’ve never hear of anybody doing that,” said LeRoy Stearns, executive director of the Crawford County Humane Society. “That’s a new one on me. I’m dumbfounded.”
After running this site for a decade, I’m definitely not dumbfounded. In just the last two years, we’ve reported on an 11-year-old girl who beat a puppy to death, an 11-year-old boy who drowned a dog in a hot tub, and a 12-year-old boy who hanged a dog just to watch it die.…Continue Reading
