In The Mean Time...
Broward, FL – On Saturday morning, a 52-year-old man died after he walked into a Florida shooting range, rented a gun, and then shot himself. When police went to his home to alert his wife, they found her dead inside the house.
Police say the man entered the Arizona Shooting Range & Emporium in Lauderdale Lakes at 10:18 a.m. and rented a gun. A short while later, he shot himself in the head while in the target-shooting area. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
A detective arrived at his home a few hour later but could not get anyone to answer the door, even though his wife’s car was parked in the driveway. Because of the day’s earlier events, the detective entered the house and found the man’s wife dead in a bedroom. Investigators are calling the deaths a murder-suicide.
Last October, another man committed suicide at the same gun range, leaving suicide note in the parking lot. In August of 2010, we reported on a very similar story out of Florida where a 24-year-old man killed his girlfriend before going to the Gallery Gun Range and committing suicide.…Continue Reading
The incident, police say, was captured on surveillance video.
Guards grew suspicious when the man’s Cadillac was spotted on surveillance cameras at about 4:20 a.m. Because the Caddy had been seen on prior occasions, officers zoomed in on it to get a better idea of what was going on inside. It was then, they said, that they discovered the occupant of the vehicle, 47-year-old Terry Doxey, was putting on a one man show for his lady.
When confronted, Doxey denied the accusations. A search of his vehicle, though, provided police with “irrefutable evidence.” Umm, eww?
Police say Doxey’s 27-year-old girlfriend is currently serving a sentence for retail theft. She is scheduled for release in September.
Doxey was booked into jail on charges of aggravated indecent exposure, a misdemeanor. He was released Friday on a $10,000 personal bond.…Continue Reading
Walpole, NH – On Friday, a 14-year-old boy pulled out a shotgun while inside a school cafeteria and shot himself in the face. Surprisingly, the boy is currently still alive.
Police say Hunter Mack was upset over a relationship with a girl when he shot himself in the face with a 20-gauge shotgun at around 11 a.m. at Walpole Elementary. There were around 70 other students in the cafeteria at the time of the shooting.
On student told reporters that when one their friends noticed the gun Mack had hidden under his clothing and asked what it was for, that Mack stated he was “making things better” before shooting himself.
Mack was rushed to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery for his significant facial injuries. His relatives say that his vital signs are good, but that he will have a challenging recovery.
Classes have resumed today and crisis response counselors will be available for students and staff.
All I can think of when I read the word “challenging” is James Vance, the guy who tried to kill himself with a shotgun blast to the head but only managed to blow off the lower half of his face.…Continue Reading
Houston, TX — A man accused of forcing his sexual partner to use a beer bottle during sexy time has been arrested on charges of sexual assault, after police learned he had documented the alleged assaults on video.
The victim reportedly told police 46-year-old Ted Dwayne Stevens went “too far” by forcing her to use a beer bottle during several of their presumably consensual sexual encounters in November of 2010. The 44-year-old woman also claimed Stevens had recorded the alleged attacks on several occasions.
A court order to collect the evidence was obtained, and the deputy that examined the footage reported finding about 65 clips that showed Stevens sexually assaulting the woman.
Stevens was charged with sexual assault of an adult and released on a $30,000 bond.
No word on how long the two had been in a sexual relationship.…Continue Reading
Harold Wayne Hadley Jr., 19, was arrested after authorities matched his handwriting to the note found in the bathroom of the industrial services building. Said note claimed a bomb had been placed in the school library.
Officials immediately closed the library and the industrial services building and brought in a bomb-sniffing dog. A total of 11 agencies responded to the alleged threat, and each came up empty handed.
Hadley, who was scheduled to graduate in May, is now being held at the Jones County jail on a $20,000 bond.
Hadley’s family members have since stepped forward in his defense, claiming Hadley often uses the word “bomb” as a reference to bodily functions, not an explosive device.
“He was in the restroom doodling on some toilet paper and I am going to just let modesty go and tell you we are from the country, and so he calls passing gas, bombs,” said Hadley’s unidentified aunt. …Continue Reading
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Police arrested a woman after she allegedly punched her 10-year-old son in the face during her anger management class.
Earlier this month, 30-year-old Misty Lawson was taking the class when she allegedly got pissed at her kid and punched him several times in his face and body. A counselor who witnessed the incident called police as well as Child Protective Services.
The boy suffered from redness to the eye and a knuckle bruise on the right cheek. Lawson was charged with fourth degree assault, and probably needs to get her damn money back. This isn’t the first time Lawson has made the news regarding something stupid she did with her son.
Last June she and 29-year-old Derek Noel left the boy, then 9-years-old, and a 12-year-old boy in the back seat of a hot car while the went inside a Kroger to get their pictures taken. It was 90 degrees outside, so when some Kroger employees saw the boys unattended in the back of the car, the stopped a police officer.…Continue Reading
Police learned of the incident after responding to the home on a well-being check. And, according to one source, the child was still in the dryer when deputies entered the home. Another source, though, claims Bayly admitted to having placed the kid in the dryer earlier that day. Either way, the kid was supposedly tumbled at some point.
No word on how long the kid was fluffed, but police were unable to find any visible injuries. Police say the toddler was released to his mother, who wasn’t home when deputies arrived.
Bayly was arrested on a misdemeanor child endangerment charge and quickly bonded out, but was immediately rearrested on a felony domestic violence charge. He was apparently convicted on similar charges back in 1999, after assaulting a 5-year-old family member.
I can’t stand the racket a heavy coat makes in the dryer, the sound of a child bouncing around in there would drive me insane(er).…Continue Reading
Mansfield, OH – Police say that on the night of Jan. 31, Paul Lovely, 44, swerved off the road, over-corrected, and ended up hitting a tree while intoxicated.
“At that point he got out of the vehicle, and – with a bottle of whiskey in his hand – walked east to Lexington Avenue and waited for the light to turn green,” Mansfield police Officer Korey Kaufman said.
“The light turned green and he just came out of nowhere,” Jordan Eagleston, the driver of the first vehicle to hit Lovely, said. “I don’t know why he would try to cross the road then.”
Police reports say that the impact from Eagleston’s car sent Lovely airborne. He landed in the street. Lovely was then struck by a second vehicle while laying on the ground.
“When we found him, he had a bottle of liquor laying next to him in the road,” Police Sgt. Ken Carroll said.
Lovely was transported to a local hospital with injuries. He was initially listed as being in stable condition.…Continue Reading
Lakeway, TX – An arrest warrant has been issued for a 46-year-old woman accused of entering a neighbor’s home last month “with the intent of committing capital murder.” Her intended target – the Antichrist and his parents.
According to police, on the afternoon of January 27, Beth Ann Straley walked into her neighbor’s home through an unlocked door and confronted the family’s 37-year-old babysitter. She then reportedly whipped out a loaded .38 and ordered the sitter to find the Antichrist’s incubator.
The sitter, an apparent badass, not only failed to disclose the whereabouts of the evil one and his makers, but also disarmed Straley with very little fuss.
Mission unaccomplished, Straley then fled to another neighbor’s house, a home that belongs to a former Lakeway police chief, and reportedly admitted to those inside that her intent was to kill the man and woman of the home and their 5-year-old son…the Antichrist.
Straley was not in custody as of Thursday, but the arrest warrant sets bail at $500,000. She was apparently evaluated by a mental health deputy on the day of the incident.…Continue Reading
Athens, GA - Police have arrested a legless man on charges that he raped an 11-year-old relative.
Athens-Clarke police Capt. Clarence Holeman said that the woman became suspicious after 33-year-old Elbert Roman Tate made two trips in a wheelchair to use a restroom on the other side of the home, even though “there was another one next to their bedroom.” The bathroom he chose was located next to the bedroom of the woman’s 11-year-old daughter.
“She felt something wasn’t right because he was gone so long, and she actually heard him go into the bathroom that’s adjacent to the child’s bedroom,” Holeman said. Holeman added that the woman stated that one of Tate’s “bathroom visits” took about 45 minutes.
Holeman said that later, after Tate had left the residence, the woman took it upon herself to ask her daughter if anything happened. According to Holman, the girl reportedly responded that “Tate had wheeled himself into her room, climbed into her bed, then fondled [her] and raped her.”
According to Holeman, Investigators collected evidence that corroborated the girl’s story.…Continue Reading
Baltimore City, MD - Manuel Loja, 35, reportedly sent texts to the owner of a pair of stolen red thong underwear that included photos of that very same pair of stolen red thong underwear. Oddly, this did not work out well for Loja.
According to reports, on February 2, an unidentified female victim’s rear kitchen door was pried open to gain entry and cash, jewelry, and a pair of red thong underwear were taken. The victim told police that she had received the jewelry from a man she knew as “Luis,” and that “Luis” began sending her “taunting” text messages after the break-in that included a photos of her stolen panties.
Police say the man agreed to meet her to return her items. At the time of their meeting, he brought the items and she brought the police.
“Luis,” subsequently identified as Loja, was arrested on charges of burglary, destruction of property, and theft.
Please watch the following video for sage advice from one of the victim’s neighbors on how to keep your panties from being used against you. …Continue Reading
HARDIN, Mo. — Two teenagers are facing sexual assault charges after being accused of sexually assaulting students in a high school locker room.
I’ve been following this story since it first broke in December but the details were too vague so I decided to wait until more details came out. They have, and it’s not pretty.
According to court documents, 17-year-old Jeffrey R. Ellis and 18-year-old Randy E. Estenbaum sexually assaulted separate students in the Hardin-Central High School locker room on separate occasions. These assaults happened while students were changing for P.E. or to play basketball.
In November, one of the accusers told police that Estenbaum pinned him down and forced his legs up in the air and “humped” him while he was naked. In December, Ellis allegedly assaulted two boys with the help of two others. After two other students helped hang two classmates upside down, Ellis allegedly pulled down one boy’s pants and stuck a water bottle in his butthole.
The school conducted its own investigation and all four students who participated in the attacks were expelled from school in January while Ellis and Estenbaum were charged as adults with forcible sodomy.…Continue Reading
The baby had been admitted to MUSC Children’s Hospital two weeks prior to the incident because her mother, 17-year-old Chevonne Youngineer, said her her child “frequently quits breathing or starts choking.” Luckily, according to Youngineer, she had learned CPR and saved her child’s life on multiple occasions.
Because of the child’s many brushes with death, the baby had been placed in a hospital room equipped with a hidden camera. The other day, Youngineer requested asistance because once again, her baby wasn’t breathing. Nurses were able to revive the infant and remove some cotton that had somehow made its way into the baby’s mouth.
Hospital workers reviewed the surveillance footage and watched as moments before she called the nurses, Younginer tore cotton from a stuffed animal and then shoved the stuffing into her baby’s mouth before covering the baby’s face with a blanket. After several seconds Younginer went back and pushed the stuffing further into her baby’s mouth and walked away.…Continue Reading
Brooklyn, NY - A teacher’s aid has been arrested after he allegedly videotaped himself spanking a child and fondling another – in a public school classroom.
FBI agents arrested 40-year-old Taleek Brooks after a computer and two external hard drives seized from his home were found to contain child porn. Brooks became the target of a child porn sting after he traded some child porn images with an undercover police officer online. But turns out Brooks was doing more than just trading child porn, the sicko was also creating it.
Two of the videos retrieved were taken in a classroom at Weeksville School where Brooks has worked since 1995. According to the complaint, one was of Brooks fondling a child’s genitals and another was of him spanking a naked child. Investigators believe the videos were shot sometime between January 2008 and January 2011.
The complaint also states that Brooks “admitted that he had been downloading and sharing child pornography for approximately seven years.” He also “indicated that he had collected and saved over 1,000 digital files on his computer containing child pornography.”
The Department of Education released a letter telling Weeksville School parents to call a confidential FBI hotline, 212-384-2700, if they have any information relevant to the investigation or believe that one of their children may have been victimized by Brooks.…Continue Reading
Lake Wales, FL – A teen accused of brutally murdering his 67-year-old grandmother, shooting the woman in the back of the head with a crossbow and stabbing her approximately 93 times, apparently did so because he was pissed off at his uncle.
Jasper Aristotle Smiddie, 19, was taken into custody Wednesday after confessing the alleged crime to his father.
According to police, Smiddie initially intended to kill his uncle, but decided to take his anger out on grandma instead. That way, police say, his uncle would have to live with the death of his mother for the rest of his life.
Police said Smiddie, who lived with his grandmother, Gloria Helfrich, as well as his uncle, confronted the woman in her bedroom on Tuesday. He first fired the crossbow, then repeatedly stabbed the woman in the back, neck and face. He then left the room, but returned a short time later to bash the woman in the face with a wrench.
In what police are calling a “bizarre twist,” Smiddie locked his grandmother’s bedroom door and waited for his uncle to get home.…Continue Reading
MT. MORRIS, Michigan – Police have charged a husband and wife with possessing hundreds of images of child pornography, including photos that show the husband abusing the couple’s 6-month-old daughter that the police believe were taken by the girl’s mother.
Police arrested 25-year-old Daniel Hall and charged him with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and using a computer in the commission of a crime. His wife, 26-year-old Alisha M. Hall, was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct and possession of child pornography.
The couple’s arrest was the result of an investigation that began last October when an anonymous couple contacted police to tell them that the Halls, who they met on a swingers website, were asking if they had a young daughter that could participate in any sexual activities.
Once police got involved, Daniel Hall repeated this request to an undercover officer, leading to police executing a search warrant on the couple’s home in January and taking away four computers. Investigators were able to retrieve 745 images of child pornography from those computers, 13 of them featuring Daniel sexually abusing his 6-month-old daughter.…Continue Reading
TITUSVILLE, FL – Police have arrested a registered sex offender for allegedly exposing himself to a couple of kids in the toy aisle of a Florida Walmart.
Police say that 28-year-old Robert Walyus was in a Titusville Walmart last Saturday when he approached two children in the toy aisle and asked if he could touch them while his dick was hanging out of his pants.
One of the victims ran off and told her mother what happened and that she “saw his thing.” The mom witnessed Walyus adjusting his pants when she turned around and looked at him. Waylus managed to get out of the store before authorities arrived, but after using images from surveillance video, Waylus was soon identified and arrested at his home.
He was charged with with lewd or lascivious exposure to a child under 16 years old and is currently being held on a $125,000 bond. He may be facing more charges as detectives were able to link him to a similar incident at Titusville Publix last October.…Continue Reading
West Allis, WI - While possibly under the impression that he wasn’t important to anyone, David Carter, 41, reportedly used a 9mm handgun to take his own life in his house in a Milwaukee suburb in 2007.
More than four years later, on January 23, 2012, his ‘skeletonized’ remains would be found by a real estate worker from the Milwaukee County treasurer’s office and a locksmith who arrived to inspect the home after it had been awarded to the county in a tax foreclosure.
In the years since his suicide, Carter reportedly never paid a bill, retrieved his mail, mowed the lawn, or cleared snow. His mail undoubtedly included the expected late payment and cancellation notices. These, of course, went unanswered.
According to news reports, near the time of his death, Carter quit his job as a nuisance control officer for the City of Milwaukee and told co-workers that he planned to ‘move to New Mexico.’ Never having been to New Mexico, his coworkers were unaware that the phrase “I am moving to New Mexico” is a completely reasonable euphemism for “I am going to shoot myself in the head and allow my bloodied and lifeless corpse to rot in stench and darkness.” It’s an easy mistake to make.…Continue Reading
Only in Florida — A man accused of shoving his wife, putting his hand on her throat and raising his fist to her during an argument learned his fate during his initial court appearance earlier this week – a romantic dinner with the wife at Red Lobster.
“He’s going to stop by somewhere and he’s going to get some flowers,” Judge John “Jay” Hurley said at 47-year-old Joseph Bray’s bond hearing. “And then he’s going to go home, pick up his wife, get dressed, take her to Red Lobster. And then after they have Red Lobster, they’re going to go bowling.”
Bray’s wife, who was present at the hearing, said the couple began arguing after Bray neglected to wish her a happy birthday. At some point during the spat, Bray allegedly shoved the woman against a couch and placed one hand on her throat, raising the other as if to strike her. Fortunately, he did not.
Judge Hurley asked the woman if she was hurt or in fear of her husband.…Continue Reading
In case you had forgotten, last month we told you all about a man who walked into the Romantix Pleasure Palace and pulled out a large hunting knife on the clerk working behind the counter. The terrified clerk jumped the counter and ran to a nearby convenience store for help.
The suspect gave a brief chase before turning back and stealing a $250 sex toy called the Fuck Me Silly. This “mega masturbator,” put out by Pipedream Products, is nothing but 20 pounds of dat ass — described as “the most realistic piece of ass you ever fucked…Slap that big round ass and listen to the whack…it sounds and feels just like a real ass!”
You can check out the product, in all its NSFW glory, by clicking here. I was on the fence about getting one until I read that they’ve “made the pussy and ass openings deeper than previous models.” Sold!…Continue Reading
