In The Mean Time...
SILVER CREEK, GA – Videos taken by Katelyn Davis, the 12-year-old girl who live-streamed her suicide, are currently being published online and offer a real glimpse into her home life.
All I can say about it is that if I had to live in a household like that at 12, I don’t know if I would have hanged myself, but I surely would have murdered someone.
I have included two videos of Katelyn having an argument with her mother, which you can watch below, and it is like the breakfast scene in Rob Zombie’s Halloween.
During this argument you hear everything Katelyn had complained about in some of her other online videos, and she was not exaggerating.
She and her mother argue about Katelyn constantly having to watch her unruly siblings, about her mother’s drug use and bringing men over, Katelyn’s cutting and even Katelyn expressing her anger over her mother not immediately kicking out her man after an incident in a pool. It’s a goddamn train wreck.
Look, I’m sure no one would like to have a recording of an argument of themselves and their kid put out there, especially if you didn’t know you were being recorded and the person listening didn’t have context.…
On Monday night at around 9pm, Mingming Chen called police to report her 5-year-old daughter, Ashley Zhao, was missing.
She told police that she last saw her daughter hours earlier and felt she had wondered out of Ang’s Asian Cuisine, the restaurant her family operates.
Police and locals began a search for Ashley, and an endangered child alert was issued. These were called off when Ashley’s body was discovered found “deceased and concealed” inside the family’s restaurant.
It was then that investigators learned the truth about what happened to the girl.
According to police, Chen repeatedly punched her daughter in the head for reasons unknown at this time. The girl’s father, Liang Zhao, found his daughter on the ground with a green liquid coming from her mouth.
When he tried washing off the liquid, he noticed she was no longer breathing and attempted CPR, but was unable to save Ashley.…
For those of you who may have missed this horrible story from August, Victoria Martens was killed on her 10th birthday and her dismembered remains were found wrapped in a smoldering blanket inside her family’s apartment.
Investigators would learn that Victoria’s mother, 35-year-old Michelle Martens, would solicit men to have sex with her daughter for her own sexual gratification. These men would include co-workers and men she met online.
One of these men she met online, 32-year-old Fabian Gonzales, raped Victoria before he strangled her to death as Martens watched. Gonzales and his cousin, 32-year-old Jessica Kelley, would try to dispose of Victoria’s body by dismembering it in a bathtub before wrapping it in a blanket and setting it on fire.
Martens, Gonzales and Kelley were all arrested and are in jail on a myriad of charges. Their trials are scheduled for October. You can read more about the initial reports of Victoria’s murder by clicking here.…
The rippin’ and the tearin’ happened on Thursday during an argument between Tara Pegues and her boyfriend, Anthony Black, inside their apartment.
Police were called to the scene by a neighbor and arrived to see the couple shouting at each other. Both Pegues and Black told the cops that everything was fine and that their argument was not physical.
But, as the Black was speaking with police, he “reached down and picked something up that had rolled onto the ground,” according to reports.
Police said his posture changed immediately and he told them that “his testicle had just fallen out onto the ground.” (*GOT DAYUM!*)
Once Black was rushed to the hospital for treatment, he told police what had really happened. He said Pergues “snapped” during and argument over Black’s possibly infidelity, and began physically assaulting him.
Black said when he went to leave the apartment, Pegues grabbed his testicles and caused one of them “to detach from his body.”
Pegues was subsequently arrested and charged with both aggravated and domestic battery.…
The incident happened on Friday at the United States Junior Open Wrestling Championship at the State Fair Park.
That’s where a man wearing a baseball cap and padded jacket, was doing some shopping and settled on an 8-year-old boy outside the Jim Norick Arena’s main entrance.
When the man picked the boy up from behind and tried carrying him off, the kid began kicking and screaming until the man figured the kid wasn’t worth all this hassle and let him go before running off.
The Oklahoma City Police Department released footage from the incident in hopes of identifying the man, described as six-feet-tall and heavy-set. They are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235 7300 or leave a tip online at www.okccrimetips.com.
People commenting on the Oklahoma PD’s Facebook post about this incident say there were more than 2,000 children at the event, and that parents are rarely on the competition floor because of the $50 floor pass.…
There’s a lot of details with this case, so I’m going to start at the beginning.
Back in July, 41-year-old Sara Packer went to police to report her adopted daughter, 14-year-old Grace Packer, had run away from home after an argument. She explained she had done this before and that on this occasion, she had taken $300 from the home.
Over the next several months, the Abington Township Police Department investigated Grace’s disappearance, but without the help of Sara. They say Sara ignored them, didn’t let Grace’s family know she was missing and continued to collect a Social Security check in the girl’s name – spending over $3000 of the funds.
In November, Packer was charged with hindering attempts to find her daughter and later released on bail.
On October 31, hunters would find a head and torso in the woods and called police.…
According to reports, a 16-year-old girl was babysitting a two week old infant when she accidentally burned her.
While giving the infant a bath in the sink under running water, she accidentally turned off the cold water instead of the hot water.
The girl’s mother called the infant’s parents, 25-year-old Patric Eddy and 26-year-old Candace Mercedes, to inform them of what happened.
The couple arrived and took the child home, telling them they were too high on meth to take the child to the hospital right away.
The mother of the babysitter visited the couple’s home the following day to check on the baby and found the infant crying in the bed next to her sleeping parents.
The woman told police the baby was suffering from an “awful” burn on her abdomen and had a diaper full of urine and feces.
The woman woke up Matthews who agreed to let her take the baby to the hospital.…
According to reports, Ian Sevostjanov was getting ready for school Thursday morning when his mother disciplined him for a “behavioral issue.”
After arguing with his mother, he was sent to his room where he used a gun to fatally shoot himself.
Ian was pronounced dead at the scene despite first responders doing “everything they could” to save him, said Clearwater Police Chief Dan Slaughter during a news conference Thursday morning.
Authorities were initially vague about what transpired in the apartment Ian shared with his parents and brother, but now say the boy’s death is being investigated as an apparent suicide.
Police are still investigating Ian’s death and determining how he got his hands on the family’s gun.
“We’re trying to definitely approach this taking care of all our responsibilities, while also being respectful that there’s an emotional trauma that’s occurred,” said Slaughter.
He went on to add that this should serve as a lesson to gun owners that they need to ensure firearms are not within easy reach of children.…

Last November, police got a call from a woman who said she was shopping in a Walmart when a “creepy” man, later identified as 26-year-old Timothy Blake, was stalking her.

Peter Balderas was trying to get rid of mice when he placed pellets known as Weevil-Cide under the house. This pesticide contains aluminum phosphide is to be placed by two fully trained professionals at a time.
This product is normally used industrially in ship hulls or other large areas, and is strictly prohibited on single and multi-family residential properties. When neighbors began to complain about the smell of the pesticide, Peter used a water hose to spray the pellets in hopes of dampening the smell.
While I’m not sure if that worked, what is known is that when the water mixed with the pellets, phosphine gas was created and slowly leaked into the home that the family breathed in over the course of two days. On Monday, police were called after someone who stopped by to see the family saw that everyone was sick.
When responders arrived, one child was already dead.…
