MILTON, WA – Police have arrested 29-year-old Michael Dufour after he allegedly left his 15-month-old daughter in a car in subfreezing temperatures long enough for her to suffer frostbite and hypothermia. Warning, this story contains a lot of diarrhea.
Police and medics were called to Dufour’s home after receiving a report that he had left his daughter alone in a car for an unknown amount of time overnight.
When medics arrived, they found the naked girl inside the car with two windows down in 26 degree weather. When police arrived, they found Dufour had already taken the girl out of the car and was carrying her into the house.
Dufour was naked from the waist down and had diarrhea running down his legs and carrying the girl in a diarrhea covered comforter. Inside the home police would find garbage everywhere and, of course, more diarrhea.
Medics noted the girl was red and lethargic and took her to the hospital where she was treated for hypothermia and minor frostbite.
When police asked Dufour why he was covered in his own shit and why his daughter was being turned into a popsicle, he said it was the girl’s mother’s fault.…

After Karen used a key to unlock the office door and enter, Larry admits he fired four shots from a .45-caliber handgun. Karen was hit three times, including once in the head, according to prosecutors.

Karen was rushed to the hospital in serious condition, but would die from her injuries. Larry Lotz was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. He is currently being held on a $3 million bail.

Inside the home police would find the bodies of two SUNY students – Kelsey Annese, 21, a member of the women’s basketball team, and Matthew Hutchinson, 24, a player on the men’s hockey team – as wella s the body of a former student, 24-year-old Colin Kingston.
An official cause of death has not been revealed, but police say a firearm was not involved and that a knife was found at the scene. Geneseo Police Public Information Officer Jeffrey Szczesniak said it’s too early to rule the deaths as a murder-suicide but they “believe the perpetrator is one of the deceased.”
I am totally speculating here, but with the info that has been released through various news reports, you can kind of figure out what happened.…
CONCORD, CA – Police have arrested 37-year-old Dormanicia Lawson after her paraplegic husband was found with bedsores and maggots feeding on his body.
Police were called after Lawson’s 36-year-old husband was taken to the hospital with trouble breathing. Once there, nurses found the poor guy was covered in bedsores and maggots.
“He could not talk. He had shortness of breath. He had maggots that were eating his body,” said Concord police spokesman Corporal Christopher Blakely. “You would think he was a corpse.”
By the next day, he was.
Police decided they should talk to the man’s wife, his primary caregiver, to find out how in the hell her husband had gotten to that state. When they arrived at the couple’s apartment they shared with their two sons – an 11-year-old and a severely autistic 19-year-old – they quickly found out.
There was a stench emanating from the apartment and inside police would find cockroaches and maggots crawling on a mattress, as well as dead flies wedged into the ceiling. The two boys echoed their surroundings and were described as dirty and smelling like shit.…

According to the police report, Freeman and his 57-year-old mother got into an argument after he found her pooch had scarfed an undisclosed amount of his cheeba.
Freeman got so angry that the 6’2″, 222-lb man-child punched holes in the wall, shoved his mother to the ground and hit her in the head with a pair of pants.
Police were called to the residence, but Freeman took off running when they arrived. After a brief chase, Freeman was apprehended and taken into custody.
After being read his rights, he “admitted to pushing his mother down and hitting her in the head with his pants” and said that she “deserved it.”

The man, identified in reports only as Tomy S, had been invited to the girl’s party by the girl’s mother, who knew Tomy from a home for the disabled where she worked.
After the party, the girl told her mother that Tomy had sexually assaulted her in her bedroom. At this point, my brain told me to stop trying to imagine how the hell a man with no arms and legs could molest a little girl, and then I found out — and wish I didn’t.
So let me share the pain.
According to the girl’s testimony in court, Tomy was reading the girl a story in her bedroom, along with other children. He initiated a “dare” game in which he pretended to be a vet who needed to examine her, and put his head on the girl’s stomach.
Afterwards, he gave the girl a horrible birthday gift. He instructed the other children to leave the room so he could examine her more thoroughly.…

Investigators say a man watched his son, Georta Mack, walk to the bus stop Tuesday morning, but was unaware that his son had returned home shortly after.
The teen had decided to skip school and hide in the basement until his father left for work – a tactic I am sure many of us used back in the day.
Unfortunately for everyone involved with this incident, the man heard the teen in the basement, but thought it was an intruder. Armed with a handgun, the man went into the basement to investigate.
Police say the teen startled his father, resulting in the man firing off a shot that hit his son in the neck. The boy was rushed to the hospital in “extreme critical condition” but would die shortly after.
Captain Terri Theetge said after interviewing the father, his department feels the death was the result of a tragic accident but they would be reviewing the investigation with the Hamilton Prosecutor’s Office.…
Police were called in to investigate a severe case of child abuse involving a 6-year-old boy and 4-year-old twins, a boy and a girl, who had been admitted to All Children’s Hospital.
“The sight of the 4-year-old boy took my breath away,” Detective Megan Buck said. “My description of him when I saw him was that he looked like a skeleton. His body was skin and bones. He has no hair because of lack of nutrients. He has a skin rash and marks from the lack of nutrients. He is non-verbal and cannot talk.”
According to reports, the boy’s intestines were completely empty and he only weighed 22 pounds – the normal weight of an 11-month-old baby. His twin sister only weighed 26 pounds.
The older sibling said that they live with their mother, 27-year-old Kimberly Haygood, but their father, 30-year-old Anthony Jones, also stays at the home and beats them with a belt.…
The girl was brought to the hospital on Monday after being cared for by Hartwig, who has helped care for the girl since she was an infant.
Hartwig was a family friend who offered to babysit because the baby’s parents were wary about putting the girl in daycare.
But when the girl’s mother arrived to pick up her daughter from Hartwig’s home, she found her daughter sleeping face down on the couch. The baby was lethargic and vomited as she left Hartwig’s home, so she rushed her to the hospital.
Doctors determined the girl was suffering from a skull fracture as well as swelling and bleeding around the brain. They say the child’s injuries were caused by “high force impact.”
When police went to talk to Hartwig, she said the girl could have fallen and hit her head on an entertainment center. But on Tuesday, doctors told police that the girl’s injuries could not have come from that kind of fall.…

The teen left her baby daughter in the care of the baby’s grandmother Monday night so she could go to a party for a couple of hours.
When she returned home shortly after midnight, she found her infant dead inside her crib. Seems that rats had gotten to the girl and had chewed off half of her face and her fingers.
After running to neighbors for help, paramedics arrived on the scene but could do nothing to save the infant, who was pronounced dead at the scene. After talking to police, both the teen and her mother were taken into custody.
We’ve reported on a lot of stories involving unattended babies being eaten by animals other than dogs, including an infant that lost most of its face after the family ferrets decided to make a meal out of it, and a baby that was strangled to death by the family’s pet python.…
Two days after Christmas, police were called by one of the Erquiagas’ neighbors who explained he had a young girl at his front door.
Her hands were zip-tied together, he told police, and she had separate ties around her ankles. The neighbor initially believed the girl had been kidnapped.
When police arrived and spoke with the girl, she explained that her parents hog-tied her whenever she got angry and kept her locked in a playhouse located in a loft area of the home.

All but one of the playhouse’s windows was screwed shut, and it reeked of urine. The girl explained she often pissed herself when locked inside for long periods of time.…

Santa Claus God. When he replied that he did not, Reid became so angry at his heathen ass that she beat the poor guy with his metal cane until it broke.
Reid remained at the man’s home for three hours after beating God into him, during which time he could not leave due to his disabilities. When she finally left, she reportedly took the guy’s cell phone, keys, cash and a wallet.
