In The Mean Time...
The 22-year-old victim apparently fell and hit her head that morning, knocking herself out. The woman told police that while being transported to the hospital, she awoke in the ambulance to find the EMT sexually assaulting her. She indicated that she could not move because she was strapped to a stretcher. She contacted police immediately after her release from the hospital.
Investigators determined that 49-year-old Mark Powell was the paramedic who treated the woman in the ambulance and an arrest warrant was obtained.

The victim survived the attack and is currently listed in good condition.
Damn…with this kind of shit, we’re going to need an ‘overreact much?’ tag here at the D’D.…Continue Reading
You see… Parker was a Florida Sunday school teacher. Sadly, he was arrested and convicted on child pornography charges in 2009. This happened after he was found to have taken photos of young girls at the church camps at which he volunteered, cut out their faces, and and pasted them on adult pornographic images. Parker was subsequently sentenced to five years for possession of child pornography.
It was reported that, while jailed, Parker read the story of John Stelmack. Stelmack was a principal at a nearby elementary school who had been arrested in 2007 for basically the same thing that Parker did. Stelmack was reported to have taken photographs of his female students and attached them to photographs of adult pornography. The resulting images were found in his school office. Stelmack was later convicted on child pornography charges, but that conviction was recently overturned.…Continue Reading
“Officer Jason Mazza observed a vehicle on Route 125 drive slowly by,” deputy police Chief Kathleen Jones said. “[The patrol officer] heard a loud noise and observed the car was missing the rear driver’s side tire, driven on its rim only. It wasn’t flat, there was no tire on it at all.”
Officer Jason Mazza pulled Short over and approached. Shockingly, the officer reported smelling a ‘strong odor of alcohol.’ Mazza questioned Short and noted that he appeared ‘disoriented.’
“Short believed at the time of the stop that he was in Methuen, Massachusetts,” Jones said. “He told the officer he couldn’t find a jack to change his tire, but couldn’t explain why there was no tire on the car.”
After failing a field sobriety test, a police search of the vehicle yielded a substance suspected to be marijuana and some paraphernalia.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL - During a rainstorm in 2008, Hiroyuki Joho, 18, (pictured) was trying to catch a train. While hurrying towards the platform with an umbrella shielding him from the rain, he made the literally fatal mistake of stepping into the path of an oncoming Amtrak express train.
The teen’s mother Jeung-Hee Park, had reportedly left Joho, a high school student, at the station that morning. It is believed that he thought that the approaching train was his local train and that he expected it to slow down. Joho crossed over the tracks using the pedestrian crossing which put him in the path of the train.
Joho’s train, in fact, had been delayed by the bad weather and overtaken by the Amtrak express. That train, traveling at close to 70mph, did not slow down. Joho was reportedly ‘shredded’ on impact.
Gayane Zokhrabov, 58, a commuter waiting on the platform was hit by a ‘sizeable portion of Joho’s body.’ The impact – which occured after a portion of Joho’s torso had traveled almost 100 feet through the air – was reported to have knocked her to the ground, breaking her leg and wrist and injuring her shoulder.…Continue Reading
Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee has joined Las Vegas as the only two U.S. cities who have a website featuring the real pictures of their unidentified dead.
They hope this will help them solve some of their cold cases instead of just relying on sketches and those creepy clay models that leave you standing in the furthest depths of uncanny valley.
If the site of dead adults, infants and fetuses in varying states of decay are your thing, then head on over to the Milwaukee medical examiner’s unidentified persons site and take a gander. For those of you with weak stomachs, let me warn you as these are the real deal and some of it is fascinasty™.
But no worries if you accidentally click the link, as your desktop won’t immediately be flooded with images of bloated corpses. Forensic investigator Michael Simley is aware of the sensitive nature of the photographs and places more than enough warnings on the site before you actually get to the meat.
Smiley is also aware of how desperate this seems, but says that in the 17 cases featured, they have simply run out of options.…Continue Reading
White River Junction, VT – A 19-year-old girl has been accused of faking her own abduction in an effort to extort money from her grandmother so she could pay off a drug dealer.
Monday night, 73-year-old Patricia Swanson received a call at her home from a man demanding she bring him $600 as her granddaughter, Megan, could be heard crying in the background. If she did not bring him the money, the man told her, he was going to kill her.
When Swanson told the unknown man that she didn’t have that kind of cash, he threatened her as well. Fearing for her life and her granddaughter’s, Swanson complied and agreed to drop the money off wherever he instructed.
When Swanson dropped off the cash at the drop off spot, Megan’s kidnappers were unaware that they had been set up. Patricia had called police beforehand and they were there watching in unmarked cruisers. They say 20-year-old Joshua Rice was the one who arrived at the location and grabbed the cash.
Police pulled a car over as it was leaving the scene and found 21-year-old Kevin Emery and the alleged hostage, Megan.…Continue Reading
Staten Island, NY – I’m sure a lot of you have read about 15-year-old Amanda Cummings by now. For those of you who haven’t, two days after Christmas, she purposely stepped in front of a city bus while carrying a four page suicide note.
She would later die at the hospital from blunt force trauma and skull fractures and her family is blaming bullying for her death. The family claims she was bullied throughout school, even in the days before her decision to end her life. Her uncle has stated he wants justice and will push this as far as he can, in an effort to ensure those who pushed her over the edge are held accountable.
“I’m not going to tolerate this,” he said. “I’m gonna go full force. Kids can’t do this to each other.”
Her mother echoed the same sentiments stating, “This entire tragedy is far, far from over,” she wrote. “I am no where done with this.”
Her sister, Dawn, recently wrote, in part, “I AM BEGGING YOU KIDS, ANYONE WITH ANY CONCRETE PROOF OF BULLYING TOWARD MY SISTER, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.…Continue Reading
No word on what the actual tiff was about, but according to investigators, the man’s mother sided with his sister in the alleged argument, forcing him to take drastic measures.
The irritated teen reportedly walked downstairs and doused himself with lighter fluid before returning to the kitchen. Then, as his horrified siblings looked on, he set fire to himself. Way to milk it, kid! That’ll teach ‘em!
Family members extinguished the flames and performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Sadly, their Life saving efforts proved fruitless – he died at the hospital a short time later.
While it’s painfully obvious the kid lacked the Most basic of coping skills, investigators say he had no known mental issues. He did, however, have some sort of physical disability.

Glendale, AZ — Jose Rivera, 55, was booked into jail New Year’s Eve after his son contacted police to report that he had found an SD card containing at least two videos of his old man raping a 12-year-old girl.
The 30-year-old man apparently found the card in Rivera’s bathroom and handed it over to police after viewing its contents. According to police, one video showed Rivera telling the girl to get undressed. A second video showed him raping her.
Since he couldn’t deny raping the kid, Rivera put the blame on her. The skeevy puke actually claimed he made the videos to prove to police the little trollop had been forcing him to do sexual things since she was nine. Can’t wait to see how that defense works out for him in court…
Rivera has been charged with one count of sexual conduct with a minor and one count of sexual exploitation with a minor.…Continue Reading
HENDERSON, N.C. — A North Carolina teen used a shotgun to give an uninvited guest, who had broken into his home, a few new holes to breathe out of.
Last Thursday, a 17-year-old girl called 911 to report that she was hiding in her bedroom closet while a man was banging on the front door trying to get in. She said that she and her 14-year-old brother were home alone, but that her brother was armed with a shotgun.
Her brother eventually gets on the phone with the 911 dispatcher and calmly tells her he has just shot a man who had gained entry into the home.
“I just shot the man. He came around the corner. I shot him. He broke the whole glass out,” the teen told the 911 dispatcher.
The man who received the teen’s gift of buckshot was 19-year-old Anthony Henderson Jr., and after acquiring his sucking chest wound, he stumbled outside to die on the front lawn.
As the boy and his older sister waited for police to arrive, the dispatcher asks if they are ok. ”I’m perfectly fine,” the teen replies.…Continue Reading
Cassie Cotta’s mother contacted police on New Year’s Eve after her daughter failed to show up for work. The last time anyone had any contact with her was at around 11pm on December 30 when she left a post on her Facebook account that read ”Blah blah blah.. Cheers people! Fuck it.”
Cassie’s husband, 33-year-old Brent Cotta, was the last person to see Cassie alive and told police she left for a party with a man named “Brandon.” He also commented on that last post of Cassie’s, joining in with concerned friends and expressing his concerns over Cassie’s party habits and the people she hung out with.
The Ft. Smith PD informed Cassie’s family that due to New Years Eve celebrations they would not be able to form a search until January 1, so Cassie’s friends and family started a grassroots effort to locate her using Youtube and Facebook to get the word of her disappearance out to the public.…Continue Reading
A third man in the pair’s camp apparently called 911 early Tuesday morning, claiming he watched as Leer “chopped off” the unidentified man’s head.
According to the witness, the three were just kind of hanging out Monday night, barbecuing steaks and drinking rum, when the victim accidentally knocked over the grill they were using to cook the steaks on. That unforgivable transgression ultimately led to some wicked choppin’ and hackin’ on Leer’s part.
The witness told police Leer knocked the 53-year-old victim to the ground, grabbed a machete-like knife and began to “chop” at the man’s head. At that point, the witness wisely took off running.
The witness later led deputies to the victim’s body and provided a spot-on description of Leer. Deputies canvassed the area and soon found Leer at the campsite, drinking rum. He was taken into custody without incident.
Leer is being held without bail, charged with second-degree murder.…Continue Reading

When questioned, Brown reportedly told officers that he had been allowed inside the movie theater for free by an unknown female who told him to take a seat in the front row, take off his clothes and wait for her, and they would have sex, smoke crack and do heroin.
