In The Mean Time...
Jackson, MI – Horrific details emerging in a case out of Michigan where a man arraigned on 12 counts of first degree sexual misconduct admitted he sexually assaulted his three-year-old daughter “too many times to remember.”
The 27-year-old has also been accused of taking elicit photographs of her for his own sexual gratification and even made her watch child porn. His wife admitted she helped her husband penetrate their daughter by holding her hands “so it wouldn’t hurt so much” while he held her legs if she tried to get away.
The girl’s mother, who has a history of being sexually abused, also admitted she and her husband watched pornography and had sex in front of the girl. She also said her husband has raped her too, and once grabbed her throat after she saw him physically abuse her sons when they were ages 2 and 4. He threatened to throw her out a window if she ever called police.
Police got involved after someone called to report the girl’s sexualized behavior, behavior that included her “humping her stuffed animals” and asking her brother for sex.…
PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ – Police said a 4-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his father, 35-year-old Justin Thomas, while they were visiting at a friend’s house.
Thomas and his son had driven to Prescott valley from Phoenix for an unannounced visit to see his former roommate. Within minutes of being inside the home, Thomas’ son found a gun, picked it up and asked what it was while pulling the trigger.
The gun fired, and Thomas was hit. He was rushed to the hospital in extremely critical condition, and later died from his injuries. Police said it’s standard procedure to investigate any death as a homicide anytime someone dies of anything other than natural causes, but probably will not be filing charges against the owner of the gun.
“At this point, it does appear that this is just a tragic accident from this child, and we will look to see if there’s any negligence issues there,” said Prescott Valley police Sgt. Brandon Bonney. “But, at this point, the information we have is it’s just a tragic accident that was unforeseen.”
Bonney also said the gun should have been locked away, but that Thomas’ friend was caught off guard by the unannounced visit and that no kids lived in the home.…
YACOLT, WA – Search crews are still looking for 19-year-old Maureen Kelly after she wandered away from a campsite to embark on a spiritual quest wearing nothing but a fanny pack.
Skamania County Undersheriff Dave Cox said a friend of Kelly’s reported the girl missing in the early Monday morning when Kelly didn’t return to the campsite at Canyon Creek Campground.
Kelly went on her quest naked, only wearing a fanny pack that contained a small knife and a compass. Search crews were able to determine Kelly managed to cross a creek and climb up to Forest Road 54, on the other side of the canyon from the campground.
“Where she entered the creek is amazingly steep. It’s called Canyon Creek Campground for a reason,” said Sharon Ward, with Pacific Crest Search Dogs. “It’s very, very steep. So how she got down there barefoot is a wonder. And how she came up out of the bottom is a wonder.”
Ward said Kelly’s tracks stopped on the paved road, and search crews have not determined if she ever left the road and re-entered the woods.…
JESSIEVILLE, AR — A five-year-old boy from Oklahoma was killed in Arkansas Sunday after he was attacked by a family friend’s Bullmastiff.
The boy and his 2-year-old sister were staying with 50-year-old Lynn Geiling and her husband while their family rebuilt their home destroyed by the deadly tornado that swept through Moore, Oklahoma last month.
The siblings had been staying with the couple for about two weeks when the couple’s Bullmastiff attacked the boy as he was putting on his shoes and, according to Geiling, throwing a tantrum.
“The child was putting on some shoes and was crying and upset,” said Garland County Deputy Scott Hinojosa. “The dog possibly took that as being aggressive and at that time the child was attacked.”
Geiling told police she tried to pull the dog off the boy, but by time she did the boy had already suffered “major lacerations” to his head and neck. He was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital in Hot Springs.
The dog ran away after attacking the boy, and animal control were still searching for it late Sunday night to have it euthanized.…

On June 5, police were called to an apartment where Weatherspoon had gotten into a physical altercation with his wife while she was holding their infant son.

CALEDONIA, WI – Before any of you start thinking this is another “pit bulls are evil” stories, I wrote this one up because it’s a story that seems to be incompetent dog ownership that led to a 15-month-old getting bit in the face by a pit bull.
On June 5th, police responded to a home where a child had been bitten in the face by the family’s pit bull. According to reports, the child had been sitting on the kitchen floor eating a cookie when the pit bull, named Mary Jane, presumably bit the child while trying to get the cookie from the child’s mouth.
The child had to be taken to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin suffering from severe facial tears, puncture wounds and missing teeth. Of course this could have happened to anyone with an animal in the home with young children, but it’s the other details being reported that make this incident so rage inducing and avoidable.
“This particular animal the family took in and they knew it had been abused in the past so they had taken this dog in and they told us that the dog is not friendly towards children,” said Lt.…
About three months after a contentious divorce in 2011, the West St. Paul woman struck up an extensive online relationship with a man named Aaron Carpenter. Not unlike many online relationships, the woman shared a number of personal details with her new beau, including the difficulties she had been having with her ex-husband, a 36-year-old man named Brian Cornelius.
Over the course of the year-long romance, “Carpenter” had talked her into some presumably one-way webcam action, and even managed to talk her out of appearing at a court date to request a protection order against Cornelius, who had allegedly assaulted her in March of 2012. The protection order request was dropped at a result.
Eventually, in August, the woman began putting two and two together, when Cornelius started cropping up in places she told Carpenter she would be. The Carpenter persona had begun to slip, mentioning to the victim things that only Cornelius would know. …
HICKORY, NC — Here’s a story to freak you out a bit the next time you plan on staying in a hotel or, at the very least, relay to friends when they say the “body under the bed” story is just an urban legend. Police in North Carolina are at a Motel 6 after a dead woman was found rotting underneath a bed in one of the rooms.
Hickory police said an employee at the motel discovered the woman’s body underneath the bed on Friday after a guest complained about smelling a foul odor. “I heard some screaming and I don’t know what happened after that,” said Tim Brown, who was outside of the motel when the body was found. “I didn’t know anything was going on, to be honest with you, but wow.”
Police still do not know the identity of the woman, but believe a couple had been staying in the room and are now asking for help locating them. They have released a photograph of a white Previa Toyota van seen leaving the motel Friday morning and are calling the pair “persons of interest.”
Aside from the locating the couple, police hope to learn more about the woman, and how she died, from her autopsy. …
Chicago, IL - DD’s most talked-about victimizer, the dreaded pit bull, seems to be suffering a bit of karma lately at the hands of the human penis. We just posted about a pit bull getting sexed up by a man in an alley, now we have Gerardo Perez. The 50-year-old was arrested after he sexually assaulted a pit bull in a Chicago animal shelter. Oh, how the mighty pit bull has fallen.
Perez was on a group tour of the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility when he broke off from the group and was found by an employee going into a restricted area. The employee told him he needed to leave, but returned later to find Perez had not left. Or more specifically, the employee found Perez had not left and was inside a kennel, on his hands and knees, next to a grey and white pit bull. Apparently, he was just “finishing up.”
Perez made “inculpatory statements” regarding his having sexual conduct with the dog to several employees, police said. …

SAN LEANDRO — Richard Styner is facing child porn and burglary charges after the 45-year-old San Leandro High School teacher accidentally showed a naked photo of himself to a classroom of students.
On April 16, Styner was teaching a computer class how to transfer pictures from electronic devices to a computer using his personal phone. During this demonstration, he accidentally displayed a naked picture of himself on the overhead projector, in full view of a class full of 14 to 18-year-old students.
“At first the reaction was that everybody was laughing because they thought it was a joke, but then when everybody realized that it was our teacher, Mr. Styner, that’s when everybody got quiet because they realized it was serious,” said one student who was the class when it happened.
Styner reported the incident to school officials, who placed Styner on leave. Everything may have ended there had the school not checked his school computer. A search of the computer resulted in 200 pornographic stories being found in a folder, along with some disturbing photos.…
FULLERTON, CA — Lester Huffmire and his wife, Petra Huffmire, have been accused of keeping two young female relatives malnourished and locked inside a nasty trailer for years while they played World of Warcraft all day.
It is being alleged that between May 21, 2010, and May 20, 2013, the couple lived in a mobile home at the Satellite Mobile Homes Estate and prevented the two girls, ages 5 and 10, from leaving the trailer for any reason, including attending school.
Police got involved after multiple calls from concerned neighbors. Grace McKee said she called officials more than once to report something weird was going on with her neighbors, the last time was 12 days ago. “I wish I had forced the issue years ago. They sorta said, ‘If you don’t see much, why should we come out?’ That sort of thing,” she said. “I wish I would have really, really insisted.”
Witness McKayla Smith said she briefly saw one of the girls as she stared at her through a window. …
NEW YORK, NY – A quick-thinking 10-year-old scared off two men during a home invasion by firing the gun one of the men dropped.
The two men showed up to the Brooklyn home Monday evening posing as Fedex delivery men. When two teenage sisters answered the door, the two men rushed in and forced the girls into the living room at gunpoint, instructing them to get on the floor.
When one of the men went to the second floor of the residence, the girls’ mother made a mad dash to 10-year-old son’s bedroom with the invader in hot pursuit. She managed to get in a bedroom and slam the door on the man’s hand, causing him him to drop his gun.
Her quick-thinking kid then picked up the man’s gun and fired a shot at him. The two men then fled the home, but not before taking a shot at the kid. No one was injured during the incident, and the men left empty-handed.
A neighbor said the family may have been targeted because they own a store and the home invaders, described as two black males in their ’20s, may have figured there was lots of cash inside.…
KANSAS CITY, MO. — Well would you look who’s back on Dreamin’ Demon. Some of you may not remember Carrie Waldo, but two years ago she and her husband were charged with felony child endangerment after their infant had seven fingers chewed of by a ferret.
When we last reported on the couple, they told police they were both asleep when their pet ferret started chewing off all of their 4-month-old boy’s fingers. By the time their son’s cries woke them up, he only had three fingers left; two thumbs and a pinkie. According to the couple, the ferret had never been aggressive towards their son before.
It would later be proven that the couple were lying through their teeth and had not even been home at the time of the attack. Phone records and GPS location documents proved the couple were away from their home while their infant screamed bloody murder while feeding the ferret.
The couple’s landlord would also debunk the couple’s claims of the ferret not being aggressive after telling them that four days before this incident, the Waldos wanted to give the ferret away after it had bitten their baby twice, but obviously ended up keeping it.…
