JEANNETTE, PA – Maxwell Morton has been charged with murder after police say the 16-year-old shot a classmate in the face before taking a selfie with the victim’s body and posting it to Snapchat.
Police were contacted Wednesday evening after the mother of 16-year-old Ryan Mangan found her son dead in his room. The following day, a woman called police to report a disturbing image her son had received via Snapchat.
The image was a selfie taken by Morton with a very dead Mangan sitting in a chair behind him with a gunshot wound to the face. The woman also said her son received messages from Maxwell, stating, “Told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one.”
A search warrant was served at Morton’s home and a 9 mm handgun was found in the basement under the steps that matched a shell casing found in Mangan’s room. After being advised of his rights, Morton confessed to shooting Mangan. At this time, no motive has been revealed.…
UPPER DARBY, PA – A teen who tried to rob an old man with a toy gun has died after the intended victim used his real gun to shoot the teenager in the head.
The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon when a 67-year-old man walking in Cobbs Creek park was confronted by 18-year-old Tyler Williams.
“As he turns around, he sees a masked man with a gun pointed at him saying, ‘Give it up, give me all you got,” said Supt. Michael Chitwood, Upper Darby Township Police.
The old man didn’t comply with the teen’s demands, but rather grabbed the teen’s gun. The two got into a struggle that ended when the victim pulled out his very real, .38 caliber handgun, and used it to shoot the teen in the head.
The man then walked out of the park and called 911 and Williams would die at the scene.
Chitwood said the teen was found with half a dozen cell phones and that the toy gun he was using looked so real that police at the scene didn’t know it was a fake until they got a closer look at it.…
DETROIT, MI – Tewana Sullivan has been ordered to stand trial for beating her friend to death with a crock pot during an argument over politics.
Last October, 50-year-old Tewana Sullivan was visiting her friend, 66-year-old Cheryl Livy, at the McNamara Towers senior housing complex when the two got into an argument over politics.
According to defense attorney John McWilliams, the two women were arguing over “presidential politics” and the controversy “between Democrats and Republicans.”
The argument got so heated that Sullivan allegedly picked up a crock pot beat the ever-living crap out of Livy with it until the crock pot busted. When police arrived at the apartment, they found Livy barely breathing with the cord of the crock pot wrapped around her neck.
At Sullivan’s preliminary hearing on Thursday, officer Thomas Blauvelt testified that there was “blood all over the walls, all over the floor, all over the victim.” Officer Michael Lewallen testified Sullivan was still at the scene when they arrived.
She appeared disoriented and “under the influence,” with blood on her hands.…
According to police, the boy’s aunt, Denise Kroutil, asked co-worker Nathan Firoved to help her family teach her nephew a lesson. She and other relatives felt that the boy was “too nice to people” and felt the only way to fix that was to abduct and terrorize him.
Firoved agreed that was a great idea, as did Elizabeth Hupp, the boy’s mother, and the boy’s grandmother, Rose Brewer. So they all put their heads together and came up with a plan that they carried out on Monday as the boy was walking home from his school bus.
That’s when Firoved lured the boy into his truck and told him he would “never see his mommy again” and that he would be “nailed to the wall of a shed.” When the boy started to cry, Firoved showed the boy a gun and told him to stop crying or he would hurt him.…
GAITHERSBURG, MD – Joey Poindexter has been convicted for sexually assaulting multiple men he possibly drugged after meeting them at beer pong tournaments.
Police have been investigating the 38-year-old real estate appraiser since 2013, after a young man reported Poindexter had sexually assaulted him after a beer pong tournament at a Maryland bar.
Investigators would end up finding several photos of the victim in various states of consciousness, and would also get their hands on a phone conversation between Poindexter and the victim that didn’t sound like an innocent man who had just been accused of rape.
“You know, no matter what did happen or didn’t happen, like I said, I was pretty trashed,” Poindexter tells the victim. “And if it makes you feel any better, I don’t have any [expletive] AIDS if anything did happen.”
After the case went public, four more men came forward with similar stories. They claimed they were also sexually assaulted at Poindexter’s home while they were drunk and possibly drugged, leaving them unable to guard their buttholes from Poindexter’s penis.…
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Wildlife officials say some teens at an upscale Fort Lauderdale condominium complex used an electronic cigarette to kill a pelican.
The attack, which happened last month and captured on security camera, shows one of the teens holding the pelican down and blowing fumes from an electronic cigarette into its beak and eyes.
The teen then holds the pelican’s beak closed so it couldn’t breathe. He does this repeatedly throughout the night until the pelican died, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Liz Barraco.
After reviewing the security footage, a security guard was able to identify one of the teens as a residence at the condominiums. They met with the teen and were able to identify the teen who killed the pelican as a 16 or 17-year-old non-resident.
Wildlife officers met with the teen and his father, then charged him with a violation of the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act. It’s only a second-degree misdemeanor which carries a maximum penalty of a $500 fine and 60 days in jail.…
DETROIT, MI – Police have arrested a 14-year-old boy after they say he stabbed his older brother to death after arguing over a soft drink and a bag of chips.
The stabbing reportedly happened Monday night when the teen got into an argument with his 18-year-old brother over who would get some carbonated fruit punch and some chips.
The teen is currently being held in a juvenile detention facility while the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office decides on criminal charges. Prosecutors have five days to bring charges and determine whether to charge the teen as a juvenile or as an adult.
Back in 2013 we reported on a 13-year-old girl who stabbed a classmate in the back with a pocket knife, allegedly because the boy had stolen a bag of chips from her while in the school’s playground.
Also in the “stabbed over chips” news is the North Carolina man who has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill after he allegedly stabbed a woman over a $1.49 bag of Jalapeno Cheetos.…
Police responded to the girl’s home after receiving a 911 call about a child not breathing. When police arrived at the home, the found an adult administering CPR to the child. Medical personnel were unable to revive the girl and determined she had been dead for some time, said Sgt. John Delaney,.
Turns out that before the girl was put to bed that night, her family attempted to treat her lice by covering her head in mayonnaise and then placing a plastic shopping bag over her head. Sometime during the night, the bag slipped down over the child’s face, suffocating her.
No charges have been filed at this time, but an investigation is ongoing and the state Department of Children and Families has been notified.
This isn’t the first time a home remedy for lice has landed someone on DD. Back in 2013, police charged a mother with child abuse by injury after she poured gasoline on her 5-year-old daughter’s head to treat head lice, which then caught fire.…
Police say 30-year-old Guadalupe Diaz’s son got into a fight with another boy at their school that ended with both boys being suspended.
According to the Harris County Precinct 6 Constable’s Office, Diaz allegedly confronted the other boy as he walked home from school. No details on that initial confrontation, but it lead to the boy running from her and into a nearby cellphone store looking for help.
Investigators say surveillance footage from the store shows Diaz following the boy in the store where she chokes him and tries to pull him outside before fleeing the scene in a red SUV.
A warrant was issued for Diaz after the altercation, and she was picked up after an officer saw her standing at an intersection. Diaz has been charged with injury to a child under 15, a third-degree felony.…
NAPA, CA – An elderly man is claiming he was left with a mutilated penis after doctors ignored multiple requests by nurses and family to remove an eroding catheter.
On July 21st 2013, a nurse at Napa Valley Care Center was caring for Rupert Collins and noticed his Foley catheter had irritated his penis causing it to swell, turn red and tear at his urethra. The nurse sent a fax to Collins’ insurer, Kaiser, explaining the situation and asking to try a no catheter trial period “to give the area a rest.”
According to the lawsuit Collins has filed against Kaiser, the request was denied and Collins was never examined or followed up on by a doctor from Kaiser. Two days later on July 23rd, a conference was requested by Napa Valley Care Center to discuss the care of Mr. Collins, but a representative from Kaiser did not show.
“As a direct result of Kaiser’s failure to participate, there was no meaningful communication or ongoing assessment and the dire need to remove the catheter from Rupert’s eroding penis continued to be ignored,” the complaint states.…
Michael Trudeau Accused Of Killing Girlfriend’s Cat, Biting Off Part Of Her Ear, Shoving Umbrella Down Her ThroatFebruary 2, 2015 at 4:06 pm by Morbid
CHASKA, MN – Michael Trudeau is facing a slew of charges after the 51-year-old lunatic allegedly killed his girlfriend’s cat weeks before biting off part of her ear and shoving an umbrella down her throat.
Last Sunday, officers responded to a report of a domestic assault and met with a 42-year-old woman who was visibly shaken and bloody.
She told them Trudeau, her boyfriend of two years, had spent the afternoon at her apartment drinking before they got into a verbal argument over their relationship that turned physical.
This argument may have had something to do with an incident that had happened a few weeks prior, when Trudeau allegedly set the victim’s cat on fire in the living room. After the fire was extinguished, Trudeau reportedly strangled the cat to death before cutting off its head with a pair of scissors.
The girlfriend didn’t call police because, well, he’s fucking crazy and he threatened to kill her if she did.
Now, three weeks later, the woman has found herself in a headlock with Trudeau telling her, “I’m trained to kill the enemy.…
PONTIAC, MI – Robert Kelly has been sentenced to 20 to 30 years in prison after being convicted of beating his sleeping daughter to death with an aluminum baseball bat.
Back in 2011, Kelly walked into the bedroom of his daughter, 20-year-old Megan Roberts, and beat her with a baseball bat.
She was found by her mother at around the same time the 52-year-old psychologist walked into the Oxford police station to confess that he’d beaten his daughter in the face and head as she slept.
Kelly was initially charged with assault with intent to murder, but that charge was upgraded to first-degree murder after Roberts died from her injuries.
Last month, Kelly pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Last Wednesday, he was sentenced to 20 to 30 years in prison.
A motive behind the killing has never been given. Kelly’s defense lawyer Sanford Schulman said “it’s obviously a mental health issue.”
Kelly has also offered no reasons behind beating his daughter’s face into a bloody pulp, aside from also alluding to a mental illness.…
OCALA, FL — Police have arrested 24-year-old Larry Floyd after they say he used a kitchen knife to try and circumcise his 20-month-old nephew.
According to police, Floyd was staying at his sister’s house where the child and his siblings were being babysat. The babysitter stated they heard the baby crying in another room and then witnessed Floyd leaving the room with a bloody knife.
The child’s father arrived home shortly after and found his son bleeding then immediately rushed him to the hospital non-life-threatening injuries to his genitals. According to Sgt. Michael Sommer, Floyd told the father he was trying to circumcise the boy with a kitchen knife.
Floyd was arrested and charged with domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He has not given a reason why he decided to carry out the procedure on his nephew. Doctors say the boy is expected to recover.
By looking at Floyd’s picture, it’s hard to imagine he’s had run-ins with the law before, but he has served jail time for petty theft, drug possession and domestic battery.…
HERE, NOW – As usual, thanks to everyone who turned out last night and listened to the Pulpit of Doom Podcast live as myself and Jaded discussed the top 10 stories circulating the site this week. Oh wait, that’s right, Jaded bailed on me and I had to do this one solo.
These stories included a father son pedophilia tag-team, drowning puppies in airport toilets, abortion by Dodge Charger, the elderly and those that starve them, rape on the road, dead babies on recycling belts, baby chew toys for dogs, teens drowning babies and a baby who had their face eaten off by rabid ferrets. Whew!
I also revealed some of the weirdest search phrases people used to find us, discussed the state of the forums, and spoke with both Gaucha and Nell. Thanks for putting up with my drunk ass, and for listening to the show. We will definitely be doing it again next week.
We have moved off of Blog Talk Radio for podcasting and our new home is now at Spreaker.…
Dunnedin, Fl – Daniel Adams and his girlfriend were arrested after police say the couple took their child to kill a dog owned by Adams’ parents, then tried covering up the killing by staging a robbery.
Adams, 34, drove to his parent’s home with the intentions of handling his parent’s dog, Daisy, a 4-year-old Labrador they felt was a danger to others. Along for the ride were his girlfriend Lauren Curran, 28, and their son.
According to the couple, Daisy had been demonstrating aggressive behavior, including snapping at another family dog, that left the couple and their son fearful of the dog. To fix that issue, they decided to kill it.
Investigators say Curran “killed the dog with an intravenous needle filled with an unknown medication.” When the deed was done, the couple tried to cover their tracks by making it appear like the death was the result of a burglary inside the home by stealing an iPad.
Their fool-proof plan to kill the dog and cover it up by stealing an Apple product – that can be tracked once turned on – was thwarted after what can no doubt be a very short investigation.…
Ronald Kopf Jr. was indicted Wednesday, after admitting to police he had been raping the girl for more than a year. And as mentioned previously, this was the same girl his son, 29-year-old Christopher Kopf, was convicted for sexually assaulting when she was 13.
In Christopher’s case, both the victim and the suspect initially denied any sort of sexual contact — though the girl later admitted that the two had kissed. Christopher confessed after police presented him with DNA evidence. He pleaded guilty to first degree sex abuse in August of 2013, and was sentenced to six years in prison.
Ronald was busted after the victim told her mother she had been in a year-long sexual relationship with Ronald. Um, eww. Between the two of them, I just don’t think there’s enough alcohol, anywhere. Ever.
Anyway, Ronald admitted to providing the girl with cigarettes, money and marijuana.…
EASTPOINTE, MI – Angela Alexie is behind bars after police say the 24-year-old gave birth to a baby that she let starve to death in an unheated garage.
On Jan 14th, employees at a Roseville recycling center found a dead newborn on a sorting conveyor and contacted police. The resulting investigation lead police to Alexie, who is homeless, and she would admit to them that the baby was hers.
According to Alexie, she gave birth to the baby boy on Dec 22 at a home she had been living at, possibly with her boyfriend. Instead of calling for help or dropping the baby off at the nearest fire station, Alexie put the baby in the home’s unheated garage until it died several days later.
“She left the house and then back out to the garage to check on the baby every few hours,” said Roseville Police Detective Brad McKenzie. “Then the baby finally passed away on the 24th of December.”
McKenzie went on to say that the dead baby was placed in a recycling can by “some unknown person” weeks later.…
PASCO COUNTY, FL – Justin Colby is behind bars facing attempted murder charges after the 33-year-old allegedly tried aborting his girlfriend’s baby with a 2006 Dodge Charger.
On Monday, Colby got into an argument with his girlfriend, 32-year-old Crystal Noordhuizen, who is seven months pregnant. Not wanting to exasperate the situation, Noordhuizen left their home and began walking down the street.
That’s when police say Colby called her on her cell phone and asked, “Are you ready for your abortion date?” before veering his vehicle off the road and striking Noordhuizen from behind. Colby crashed into a pole, got out of the car and walked to his home where he fled on a white motorcycle.
Noordhuizen was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with minor injuries, while Colby was later picked up by police and charged with attempted murder.
This isn’t the first time Colby has been accused of hitting someone with a car. In 2012, Colby was charged with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm after he ran over his brother.…
