In The Mean Time...
Kenneth Chambers and his roommate were apparently involved in some sort of strange altercation that stemmed from her refusal to clean his ear. One thing led to another, and Chambers ended up ripping the woman’s bedroom door off its hinges.
The alleged victim told police that at that point, she sat on Chambers’ lap and tried to talk to him, but he refused to be placated and pushed her to the floor. He then gummed her wrist. And then, well, he choked her a little bit and poured water all over her, damaging her hearing aid. When she stated she was going to call 911, Chambers threatened to kill her, she said.
When questioned by police, Chambers claimed the woman hit him… he was only trying to defend himself. He did admit to gumming her, but said it couldn’t have hurt because he doesn’t have any teeth.
Chambers was arrested after a witness confirmed the victim’s account of the story.…Continue Reading
It all started on July 4, when Cervellino’s wife contacted police after finding a toolbox in their home with marijuana and an assortment of pills hidden inside. She told police she snatched the drugs and took photos of the items with her cell phone before stashing them in her bedroom.
When police arrived at the couple’s home, the toolbox and the alleged drug stash were nowhere to be found. The woman’s pictures weren’t going to be enough to make a case, so no arrest was made.
Later that day, the woman claims, she returned home to find a watermelon on the kitchen counter with a butcher knife sticking out of it. Just moments later, she said, her husband walked into the kitchen and, without saying a word, began carving the melon in what she called a passive-aggressive and menacing manner. She whipped out her cell phone again and took pictures of the knife, which she later showed to police.…Continue Reading
Police were called to the home of Ward’s girlfriend at about 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Upon their arrival, they learned Ward and his girlfriend had been involved in some sort of argument, which led to Ward assaulting the woman. When the woman’s friends attempted to intervene, Ward apparently attacked them with a piece of lumber, injuring one badly enough to require a trip to the hospital.
Police arrested Ward at the scene and charged him with assault by contact/family violence and aggravated assault with deadly weapon for the lumber assault on the woman’s friend.
After Ward was transported to the Titus County Jail, officers learned that prior to their arrival, Ward had busted into a bedroom in the home and forced one of the woman’s two children, ages 8 and 9, to ingest an undisclosed amount of meth.
The child later tested positive for meth and was treated at the hospital.…Continue Reading
Surveillance video shows Lessa Iannone stuffing the undies in her purse Thursday afternoon, and walking out of the store without paying for them. She was seen making her escape in an ice cream truck.
One of the officers dispatched to the store was apparently familiar with the sticky fingered panty bandit, and she was quickly apprehended.
This is not her first rodeo…. she was busted for shoplifting back in March.
Iannone was charged with shoplifting and ordered held on a $2,000 bond.
Not gonna lie… I was hoping she had stolen the ice cream truck after lifting the frillies. Had my fingers crossed and everything. Kinda bummed me out to learn she actually operates the thing for a living. And a hard living, too, I’m guessing, if one can’t afford to shell out a couple of bucks for unattractive undies.…Continue Reading
Responding to a call of a possible hold-up early Saturday morning, officers arrived on scene to find the alleged victim banging on the front door of the establishment.
The unidentified 26-year-old man reportedly told officers that he had gone through the drive-thru to order some tacos, but grew angry after the employees refused to acknowledge him. He stated that he banged on the window and began yelling for service, but no one responded. Now hungry and angry, the man parked his car and approached the restaurant to complain about the shitty service. Police say the man was met at the locked front door by Steven Noska.
The victim told police Noska shoved him, then walked to his car and retrieved a BB gun. The man went on to say that Noska shot him several times and hit him with the gun before walking back into the restaurant.…Continue Reading
NEW COLUMBIA, PA – Four teenagers are facing a slew of serious charges after they threw a rock from an overpass that crashed through a vehicle’s windshield and smashed into a woman’s face.
Sharon Budd, a 52-year-old mother of four and cancer survivor, was with her daughter and husband travelling on I-80, headed to New York City from their small town in Ohio.
As they passed underneath an overpass in Milton, an 8-inch rock slammed through the front windshield and struck Sharon, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, right in her face.
“I’ve never seen anything like it. That rock hit her straight on, straight on in the face,” said Sharons’s husband, Randy Budd, who was in the backseat. “It was the most gruesome thing that you could ever imagine.”
Sharon’s teen daughter, who was driving, pulled over and Randy called for help. Sharon was rushed to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA where she’s already lost one eye and is suffering from life-threatening swelling on her brain.
While at the scene, police would notice the same car driving slowly by on two occasions.…Continue Reading
RENO, NV – Police have charged 24-year-old Jason Brown with multiple counts of animal cruelty after they say he adopted five dogs only to kill and dismember them in his motel room.
Brown was arrested on July 9 after a manager of a Super 8 Motel called police to report some gruesome shit going down inside Brown’s motel room.
He told them that a maid went in the room to clean it, and found bloodstains, dog limbs, drugs and drug paraphernalia inside. The manager told police the maid contacted him, and he found a decapitated brown dog in the room’s bathtub.
While the manager waited for police to arrive, Brown returned but then fled before police got there. Arriving police would check out the room and found four decapitated dog heads inside a small refrigerator.
Two of the dogs were named Fernell and McGee, two Chihuahua mixes given to Brown by someone who used Craigslist to place the dogs up for adoption because they could no longer care for them.…Continue Reading
Matthew Burdette killed himself on November 29. His family had noticed the once happy, popular teen had become withdrawn in the days leading up to his suicide, but say they never saw it coming.
Matthew left a note that stated he had no friends and that he could no longer handle school. Wanting answers, his family started asking questions – starting with school officials at University City High School.
They say school officials wouldn’t tell them anything about what may have happened at the school to have caused Matthew to suddenly hate school so bad that it would be part of his reasoning for ending his own life.
However, other students didn’t have such issues. They told Matthew’s family that their son was being relentlessly bullied over a video that was posted online that went viral.…Continue Reading
SAN DIEGO, CA – Mason Zisette, a 16-year-old high school junior, died after he struck a freeway bridge while standing on the top section of a double-decker tour bus.
The bus had been chartered for another teen’s private birthday party on Thursday and was traveling about 45 mph on the San Diego Freeway when the incident occurred.
The bus had 45 passengers, most under 18 years old, along with some adult chaperons who were in the lower section of the open-roof bus.
Witnesses say about two dozen teens were dancing on the top level of the bus at around 8 pm as they passed under the Vitae Street overpass. Zisette may have been dancing on a seat cushion with his back to the freeway signs when his head and hands slammed into the sign.
Zisette collapsed to the floor and was carried to the lower section until help arrived. He was taken to UCLA Harbor General Hospital where he would die on Saturday.
In 2012 we reported on Daniel Fernandez, another 16-year-old boy who died on a party bus after hitting his head.…Continue Reading
Dorset, England – In an incident that increased the currently small number of speed boat-related murder convictions, Paul Gerlach and Louis Borzoni were sentenced to life in prison for the murder of aspiring rapper Rico Dardis.
The pair were convicted for an incident that took place May 27th of last last year in Christchurch Bay in Dorset, England. According to official reports, Gerlach, Borzoni, and Dardis were enjoying an alcohol-enhanced day-trip, when the conversation turned heated. One witness claims he heard one the convicted men saying “You are being ungrateful, you’ve smoked all my cigarettes and drunk all my beer.”
This lead to to the two men pushing Dardis off the boat and then running him over, fatally slicing the 30-year-old with the boat’s propellers. The severed parts became entangled in the propeller, which caused the boat to stop working. Rather than calling for help, the two men attempted to recover the body parts and then allowed the boat to drift to shore. Another beach-goer captured a photograph of the two men shortly after the murder.…Continue Reading
MILTON, WI – Two people were hurt in a three-vehicle rollover accident caused by an 11-year-old boy pointing an Airsoft gun out the rear window of a car.
The accident happened last week on Highway 59 in Milton, near Highway N. A female driver told investigators a boy leaned out the back window of the car in front of her pointing a gun.
She immediately slammed on her brakes, causing the car following behind her to ram into the back of her vehicle before swerving into the opposite lane of traffic, hitting an SUV head-on and causing it to rollover.
Surprisingly, no one was seriously injured. The driver of the SUV that rolled and the woman who initially slammed on her brakes were both taken to the hospital with minor injuries but released a short time later.
Authorities eventually identified the 11-year-old boy and his family, who were staying at a campground just down the road from where the accident happened. The boy’s grandmother had been driving and said she didn’t even know there had been an accident or that her grandson had been pointing the toy gun out the window.…Continue Reading
OCALA, FL – Earlier this year I reported on Joy McCall, the 35-year-old woman charged with having sex with the 12-year-old son of a family friend. Last week, a judge sentenced her to 10 years in prison.
Back in February, the victim’s mother called police to report she believed her son was in a sexual relationship with one of her adult friends. Her son had suffered major cock-blockage after telling a friend about his sexual relationship with McCall, and that friend told his mother, who then told the victim’s mother.
The boy’s mother investigated the claims and found some disturbing text messages between McCall and her son that seemed to confirm the two had sex on multiple occasions. “She was able to see through the different text messaging that had occurred between McCall and the juvenile. And determine the dates that the incidents had occurred,’ said Sergeant Angy Scroble.
When police interviewed the boy, he confirmed he’d had sex with “Ms. Joy” on three occasions. The first was in January after he began receiving Facebook messages from McCall that “continued getting more heated.” After sending him pictures of herself in her underwear, she texted him to meet her at the Paddock Mall.…Continue Reading
Mallory Loyola First Woman Charged Under New Tennessee Law That Criminalizes Drug Use During PregnancyJuly 14, 2014 at 10:43 am by Morbid
KNOXVILLE, TN – Mallory Loyola has made her family proud by becoming the first woman to be charged under a controversial Tennessee law that makes it a crime to take drugs while pregnant.
The 26-year-old was arrested and charged with assault after both she and her newborn infant tested positive for meth. The law allows a woman to be charged with assault if it’s found she illegally used a narcotic drug while pregnant and her infant ends up harmed or addicted to the drug.
Unfortunately for Loyola, this new law just went into effect this month, and she admitted to police that her infant tested positive for meth because she smoked meth just days before giving birth. The charge is a misdemeanor, and Loyola has been released on $2,000 bail.
Lawmakers hope this new law will help deter other women from using drugs while pregnant. “Hopefully it will send a signal to other women who are pregnant and have a drug problem to seek help. That’s what we want them to do,” said Monroe County Sheriff Bill Bivens.…Continue Reading
We first reported on the disappearance of Gabriel Johnson back in 2010 after Johnson fled to Texas with him on the eve of a custodial hearing. Since she was a no-show, Johnson lost custodial rights to Gabriel.
She would tell Gabriel’s father that she’d killed Gabriel, and blamed him for her actions. Authorities would eventually apprehend Johnson in Miami Beach, Florida but Gabriel was not with her. While in custody, Johnson would recant her murder confession and claim to have given Gabriel to a couple at a Texas park.
However, during an unauthorized, three hour meeting between Johnson and Detective John Salame, Johnson would again confess to killing her son. The detective says he was close to getting the location of the boy’s body when Johnson’s lawyer, who was unaware the jailhouse interview was taking place, walked in and pulled the plug.…Continue Reading
Good Samaritans in a Home Depot parking lot said they heard a child crying for help inside a pickup truck parked in 90-degree heat. The truck was off, had its windows rolled up and its doors locked. The girl had been in the truck for over an hour and managed to crawl out of the rear sliding window.
Sheena Mayorga and her fiancé Hector Ramirez, along with their friend John Bodenheimer, went to the girl’s aid and tried calming her down. Mayorga said the girl was sweating from head to toe and was “screaming, sweating, unsure, and very scared.”
Police were called while another customer and some Home Depot employees took the girl inside the air-conditioned store and gave her water. The girl told police that her parents, Angelica Lerma-Montoya and Dulces Monge-Perez, ordered her to stay in the truck as punishment for eating earlier in the day.…Continue Reading
Police say that on Tuesday night, 55-year-old Henrietta Dickson either fell asleep or passed out in a designated parking space between two carport support pillars. When 55-year-old Fathima Masud returned home and pulled into the space, she did not see Dickson and accidentally parked on top of her.
Masud stated that she did notice a slight bump when she pulled in, but when she got out of her car to check, she found a tote bag full of clothing just behind her front left tire. Assuming that’s what she ran over and not seeing Dickson, who police say could only be seen from the front of the car, Masud went inside her home.
It wasn’t until the next morning that a passerby called police to report someone was sleeping underneath a car after they noticed Dickson’s hand sticking out from beneath the front of Masud’s car.…Continue Reading
San Jose, CA — Victor Manzanares, 39, is facing multiple charges after allegedly entering a family’s home and inappropriately touching their two young daughters before attempting to burn their house down.
Officers responded to the home Monday, after receiving several reports of a naked man running rampant through the neighborhood.
While cops were combing the neighborhood, a butt nekkid Manzanares reportedly entered the home through an unlocked door. Once inside, police say, he walked into the bedroom of a 10-year-old girl and got all touchy-feely.
“He came into my room… he kissed my cheek, I thought it was my dad, and then he lied next to my bed and tried to touch my bum,” the girl said.
Not sure what caused Manzaneres to exit the room, but he soon wandered into the living room where a 12-year-old girl was napping.
“I was on the couch taking a nap,” the girl said. “I was in deep sleep when the man licked my face and I freaked out.”
The two girls rounded up their little brother and beat feet out of the house. …Continue Reading
MURFREESBORO, TN – Anthony Lane has been charged with first degree murder after his daughter died at the age of 22 from injuries she received from a beating when she was only five weeks old.
Lane was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 1992 after he “violently beat” his daughter Amanda. The girl’s mother, Stephanie Pinson, would be sentenced to two years in jail after being convicted for accessory after the fact of child abuse.
While Amanda survived the beating, she was left critically injured. Authorities said she required four injections daily for a diabetic condition, suffered from seizures, and had cerebral palsy.
Despite this, Amanda would live for 22 years until finally dying last year. An autopsy would reveal her death was caused by complications to the blunt force trauma she suffered as an infant.
Nancy Woodall-Holmes, who adopted Amanda when she was three months old, described Amanda as “pure joy” and woke up and went to sleep with a smile each day.
“She could only do less than a newborn baby,” said Woodall-Holmes.…Continue Reading
