In The Mean Time...
In January, Fitzgerald would die hours after taking what turned out to be 25i-NBOMe, a synthetic drug called N-Bomb that we’ve featured on the site before that causes heart failure and bleeding on the brain. The straight-A student was at home with a friend, celebrating the fact that she’d scored a 30 out of 36 on her college readiness testing exam.
At around midnight, while Fitzgerald’s parents were sleeping upstairs, the girls took the drug. The next morning, Fitzgerald’s friend called her mother when she found her friend unresponsive and moaning. Fitzgerald was rushed to the hospital, but it would be too late and she would be pronounced dead shortly after arriving. The autopsy would conclude the teen died from complications of 25i-NBOMe toxicity.
During their investigation, police were able to get some teens to roll over on each other.…
On May 22, one of John’s’ neighbors called police to report that John had came by and told him that his wife, 45-year-old Anja Dewees, was dead inside his home. When police arrived, Anja’s body was found on the bedroom floor wrapped in plastic.
John initially told police that he’d killed his wife after he dropped her in the bathtub while giving her a bath. Anja was suffering from liver disease and was bedridden, so he was responsible for the cooking and cleaning, as well as bathing his wife and changing her diaper.
But the medical examiner’s report showed that Anja suffered more than an injury resulting from a simple fall in the bathtub. She had a large bruise on back of her head, blood coming from her right ear, a cut over her right eye and numerous bruises over her body.
Presented with these facts, John eventually told the whole truth.…
The 48-year-old was at an event at Grant Park dismantling the coffee machine when he lost his balance. Karr grabbed the machine to prevent from falling and the machine fell on top of his head and body, said police.
He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later from multiple crushing injuries to his head and chest. His death was ruled an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.
From what I can gather, Karr was kind of a big deal within the coffee community. He was a technician who installed, repaired and modified coffee brewing equipment, and considered by some as the best in the country. His company, SteamVolt, was dedicated to “advancing the mechanics of craft coffee.”
“In terms of the work Jim did, he was one of the very few in the country that was known as being a top expert at what he did,” said Nicholas Cho, of Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters.…
LAKE COUNTY, FL – Police say 52-year-old Patricia Tavernier said “for 52 years of shit” as she dumped her 73-year-old mother out of a wheelchair and in to the street.
Tavernier had been inside the Ruby Street Grille celebrating her 52nd birthday with her sister and her mother, who had been staying with Tavernier while recuperating from a broken hip.
Something happened during the dinner that got an intoxicated Tavernier upset, leading to her wheeling her mother out of the restaurant and dumping her head first off the curb. Witnesses say that afterwards, Tavernier hit her sister several times in the face with a camera.
When police arrived, they found Tavernier’s mother lying in the street in the fetal position. She was taken to the hospital after complaining about hip pain.
Tavernier was later arrested and charged with aggravated battery on a person over 65, a felony. She was also charged with misdemeanor battery for beating on her sister. She has since been released from the Lake County jail on $20,500 bond.…
Phoenix, AZ – Police have charged 16-year-old Justin Hoskins as an adult on suspicion of child abuse after a 5-year-old boy he was babysitting died from severe brain injuries.
According to police, Hoskins lived with his father and his father’s girlfriend. On Sunday, Hoskins was left to take care of his father’s girlfriend’s three children – ages 5-years-old, 3-years-old, and 4-months-old.
At some point during the day, Hoskins got angry with 5-year-old Ian Blair after he instigated a food fight with his 3-year-old sister. Things got worse when Ian refused to stand in a time-out corner as Hoskins instructed.
In response, Hoskins shoved Ian in the chest so hard that the boy’s head buckled back and he lost his balance. When he fell, he hit his head on the ground so hard that he was knocked unconscious. Instead of calling for help, Hoskins freaked out and placed the unresponsive boy in the bed.
When he checked on Ian later, he noticed the boy had vomited, but still did not call for any kind of medical assistance.…
BARTOW COUNTY, GA – Authorities say 18-year-old Chance Werner drowned while playing a shopping cart game at Lake Allatoona.
A spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources says that Werner and some friends were playing a game at Holiday Harbor Marina Saturday night that involved being pushed off a dock while riding inside a shopping cart.
Normally, the cart is tied to a pole so the rider would “pop” out of the cart as it was forcefully pushed off the dock and the person would simply swim back to the dock. But when Werner took his turn, he opted to have the cart tied to his belt loop instead.
Sadly, things didn’t go quite as planned. The weight of the cart ended up pulling the teen 30 feet below the surface of the lake and he was unable to break free. I did a little checking, and it turns out that an average shopping cart weighs around 30 pounds.
Rescue teams wouldn’t recover Werner’s body until three hours later. When found, he was still tied to the cart.…
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Laura Jean Shoulders was sentenced to 27 years behind bars after the 46-year-old pleaded guilty to making videos of herself performing sex acts on a one-year-old girl and sharing the videos on the Internet.
According to court records, Shoulders met a man in Oklahoma through a Craigslist ad in 2012. The pair exchanged messages that eventually led to Shoulders sending the man videos she recorded with her cell phone that showed her performing sex acts on a one-year-old girl she was babysitting.
In turn, the man in Oklahoma would share the videos to other pedophiles online.
Shoulders was arrested in December and would plead guilty to producing child pornography in February. This past Wednesday, Shoulders was sentenced to 27 years in prison without the possibility of parole. She got lucky, as she was initially looking at a possible 90 years behind bars.
You would think that women so desperate for a man’s attention that they’re willing to chow down on a 1-year-old’s vagina would be a rare thing, but in the last few years we’ve had several stories of women who’ve recorded themselves sexually abusing children for the enjoyment of men they’ve met online.…
SAN ANTONIO, TX – A teen has been charged with murder and attempted murder for her involvement in a December fire that killed her brother and seriously injured her father.
Back in December, a fire broke out in the home of 19-year-old Miranda Herrera. Her autistic brother, 22-year-old David Herrera Jr., died in the fire. Her father, 49-year-old David Herrera Sr., was hospitalized with serious injuries and remains in a facility that provides around-the-clock care.
Hours after the fire, Herrara was on Facebook posting about the fire: “Their was fire at my house my brother and my dad was in there i got out sadly my brother passed away on the way to the hosptle i love my brother so much and i miss him,” she wrote.
An investigation concluded the fire was an accident, possibly started by a Christmas tree. But that changed this past Tuesday when Herrera told a school staff member that 17-year-old Sari Rodriguez was telling people she was responsible for the house fire.
This piqued the interest of SAPD homicide detectives and they began an investigation into the claims.…
CHARLOTTE, NC – Shamika Reaves and her boyfriend, Corey McCree, have been arrested after Reaves’ 3-year-old boy was found nearly beaten to death inside a Charlotte hotel room.
Police were called to the Charlotte Express Inn around 3:45 in the morning after Reaves’ boyfriend, McCree, called 911 asking for an ambulance. When police arrived at the scene, they found the boy unconscious and suffering from critical injuries.
The boy was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where doctors found he was suffering from severe head trauma and had been sexually assaulted. The boy’s grandmother told reporters that the couple had crushed the boy’s bones and mutilated his genitalia.
“The whole left side of his head is gone. When I look at his private area — his private area — Oh, God,” said Felisha Brown. I haven’t found a published report of this, but I heard a rumor on the radio that the boy’s penis had been chewed on.
Reaves was in tears during her first court appearance as the judge told her she was being charged with felony child abuse.…
Brooklyn, NY – Two boys, ages 9 and 12, have been arrested after they allegedly put rat poison pellets in their teacher’s water bottle.
According to reports, the boys were at PS 315 in Flatbush on Monday when they decided to spice up one of their teacher’s water with some poison. The boys were busted after another student saw what they had done and reported it to their mother, who contacted the school.
School officials ended up calling police after rat poison pellets were found in one the boy’s backpacks. The teacher had already drank from the water bottle and ended up going to the doctor for some mild nausea. The fourth-grade teacher was treated and released.
Both boys are now facing charges of attempted assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon, said police. According to the police commissioner, the boys put a small amount of the poison in the teacher’s water because “the 9-year-old wanted to see what the reaction would be.”
“God knows where kids get these ideas,” he said.…
Police in Arizona have accused 27-year-old Nicole Renee Candelaria of getting angry at her boyfriend’s 3-year-old daughter and forcing her to eat shit.
According to the reports, Candelaria lives with her boyfriend and is often left to care for his three children while he is at work.
On one of these occasions, Candelaria got aggravated with the 3-year-old after she took a dump in the bathtub. In response, Candelaria forced the girl to eat the feces.
The fact that this happened in a bathtub makes me gag a bit louder because my brother shit in the tub when we were little and I will never forget my brother cackling like a madman as the soggy turd flaked apart in the water. *shudder*
Anyway, when the children were back home with their mother, they informed her of what had happened.…
According to police, Workman met the girl on some social media site and the two began chatting. After messaging back and forth for a few weeks, a meeting between the two was set up in a wooded area near the teen’s home.
Investigators have reason to believe the teen invited Workman inside her bedroom, and soon after apparently agreed to let him live in her closet.
“During the day he was either in her closet or in her bedroom, and when she would come home from school or on the weekend or whatever, he would come out on evenings,” said Det. Lt. Bill Hamby with the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.
Fast forward five days from when he first moved in — mom was in the kid’s room, putting shit away, and found the strange man hanging out in the closet. Oh, and do keep in mind that during those five days, Workman is alleged to have had sex with the girl numerous times.…
Sex machine Lonnie Hutton reportedly walked into The Boro Bar & Grille Friday evening, and headed straight to the ATM. Then, according to witnesses, Hutton dropped his pants and undies, exposing his genitals, and attempted to make sweet, sweet love to the money machine.
No word on whether an actual deposit was made…..
When he was finished, Hutton then moseyed around the bar for a while, his junk just a bouncin’ and a swingin’, making thrusting motions with his hips, witnesses told police.
He was promptly escorted outside.
When police arrived on scene, Hutton was ordered to sit his drunk ass down at a picnic table while they collected information from the reporting party. It was then that Hutton allegedly disrobed and attempted to get his freak on with the table.
Hutton was arrested after being deemed a danger to himself and 90% of the inanimate objects within his field of vision.…
PHOENIX, AZ – Corey McCarthy has been arrested for child abuse after he was captured on surveillance video throwing his 23-month-old daughter into a swimming pool as a form of punishment.
In the video, McCarthy can be seeing chucking Mia out into the pool as a woman swims after her. His reason? It was to teach the toddler not to throw things in the pool… like the puppy she dropped in the pool that later died.
According to the child’s mother, Samantha, she and McCarthy have dated off an on for the last ten years and have two children together. She says that McCarthy has not played a big role in Mia’s life and was just babysitting her on the day of the incident.
According to Samantha, the video you are seeing only shows part of what McCarthy did to punish the toddler.
“You see him taunting her, like throwing her like he’s gonna, then he’s not, throwing her like he’s gonna, then he’s not,” Samantha said. “What people don’t know is also in the beginning of the video, he hoses her down with a water hose to kind of torture her that way.”
Police decided to charge McCarthy with child abuse because in the state of Arizona, child abuse includes unreasonable discipline – like throwing a child in a swimming pool as a form of punishment.…
HOUSTON, TX – Police have charged a 16-year-old student at Nimitz High School after he became upset with his substitute teacher taking his phone, that he pushed the 66-year-old woman onto the ground.
Two separate videos taken inside the classroom show the 6 foot 3. 325 lbs student standing up and pushing Beverly Round three times, the final push sending Round to the floor. The student allegedly became angry with Round because she’d taken away his phone after he was caught texting in class.
After the assault, the student walked himself to the principal’s office to turn himself in. He was subsequently arrested and charged with injury to the elderly.

HONOLULU, HI – A Hawaiian pro surfer/model has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after purposefully driving her car into an elderly lady in a parking garage.
Jill Anjuli Hansen, 30, was arrested at her apartment Wednesday night in connection to the vehicular assault on 73-year-old Elizabeth Cronklin. Cronklin was hospitalized with cuts and bruises as well as a serious head injury.
Authorities said the incident happened Wednesday morning in the underground parking complex of the Diamond Head Apartments, where Hansen followed Cronklin into the garage. Upon Cronklin exiting her car, Hansen allegedly drove her Volkswagen Passat into her. Apartment maintenance worker Chris Khory, who witnessed the confrontation, said Hansen was about to hit the woman again when he grabbed a crowbar and smashed the back of her windshield.
That’s when Hansen reportedly abandoned her car and fled the scene. Police have stated that Hansen and Cronklin do not know each other and there is no apparent motive at this time.
According to Facebook time-stamps, Hansen updated her status a few hours after the incident, but before her arrest, stating, “I am becoming a professional!…
LAHORE, Pakistan – Pakistani police have arrested 2 brothers accused of cannibalizing a freshly buried 3-year-old toddler after the head of the child was found at their home.
Known cannibals, Farman Ali and Mohammad Arif, were taken into custody after neighbors complained of a deathly stench emitting from the pair’s residence. Police raided the house and found the remains of the child, including the head.
Arif admitted to chopping up the body, boiling the flesh into a curry, and then devouring the entree (I wonder what flavor of chutney they used). He blamed the grave robbing on his bro.
“Zafar Iqbal, a police official, said that the men’s wives and family members had left them some years ago and both were living in the house in isolation.”
Both Arif and Ali are no strangers to cannibal kitchen endeavors. Back in 2011, the brothers were arrested for robbing the grave of a 24-year-old woman who died of cancer. The body of the woman was found (with both legs mutilated) next to a giant pot of boiling meat curry.…
BEAUMONT, TX – Police have arrested 27-year-old Tieralyn Angelie after one of her neighbors caught her on video repeatedly slapping the shit out of her 8-month-old baby.
The man said called 911 and started filming Angelie slapping her infant after he heard the sounds of her slapping the baby from across the street. “It was kind of loud for me to hear with my door closed,” explained Hakim. “That’s what made my heart just fall. It was too hard.”
However, when police arrived, they left without arresting Angelie because her baby didn’t show any signs of injuries. “They went up to the house and looked at the baby and came back out. Five minutes, and they were gone. Nobody asked to look at the video or anything,” said Hakim who added he notified 911 that he had video of the abuse.
It wasn’t until after Hakim posted the video online that authorities got involved. Two days after the video was posted to his Facebook, drawing outrage from the public, police arrested Angelie – who police say has a lengthy criminal record – for violating her probation on an unrelated burglary charge.…
