Police say they received a 911 call from the residence Saturday night after someone there said 27-year-old Derrick Dearman was trespassing on their property.
Dearman was on the property because his girlfriend, Laneta Lester, had gone to the house to stay with her sister in order to get away from Dearman and their “abusive relationship.”
Police arrived on the scene but were unable to locate Dearman and left. Hours later, police say Dearman returned to the home and used multiple weapons, including a gun, to attack the occupants as they were sleeping.
When he was done, Dearman had brutally murdered five people. The victims are Robert Lee Brown, 26; Chelsea Marie Reed, 22, who was five months pregnant; Justin Kaleb Reed, 23; Joseph Adam Turner, 26; Shannon Melissa Randall, 35.
Dearman then kidnapped Lester and a three-month-old infant and drove them to his father’s house in Mississippi.…
In June 2002, Wright removed the racks out of an oven, turned it to broil and waited for it to heat up. She then placed her 14-month-old daughter, Ashley Smith, head first into the oven.
Ashley was rescued by her father who heard her screams and found her inside the oven. While Smith was only in the oven for a short amount of time, she suffered third-degree burns to over 30 percent of her body.
Despite claiming voices told her to put her daughter in the oven, Wright would plead guilty to attempted murder, and be sentenced to 25 years in prison. On Tuesday, after having serving 13 years and 9 months of her sentence, Wright stood before the parole board in hopes of an early release.
Smith was also there to ask the board that her mother remain in prison.…
Police say 43-year-old Anita Parker had been faking a pregnancy for the last seven months, going as far as pretending to go to doctor’s appointments and sending her husband ultrasounds of the baby’s progress.
“I guess she pushed her belly out all the time, because she looked like she was,” said Johnny Parker.
Parker knew that her ruse was going to need an end-game, so she decided she would simply fake a miscarriage. When her husband came home on Wednesday, he found his wife on the bed covered in blood, along with some kind of body tissue.
She claimed she had a miscarriage and had flushed the stillborn down the toilet. The couple went to the hospital where doctors pulled him to the side and informed him that his wife had never been pregnant so there was no way she had a miscarriage.…
We first reported on Salers back in 2012 after he was taken into custody following the discovery of his half-sister, Katelynn Arnold, hanging dead from a tree in her family’s backyard.
When Arnold did not return home from a bicycle ride in the neighborhood, her aunt went looking for her. She did not find her until she returned home and checked the backyard.
That’s where the 9-year-old was found hanging from a tree by her neck with an old tire swing rope.
The following day, police would take Salers into custody and charged him with capital murder. Only 14-years-old at the time, the teen admitted to police that he intentionally killed his half-sister by hanging her from the tree.
He reportedly gave police a possible motive for wanting to kill the girl, but it was not revealed at the time.…
BIRMINGHAM, AL – Police in Alabama have charged an 8-year-old boy with the beating death of a 1-year-old girl.
Katerra Lewis, 26, was staying at a friend’s house with her only child, 1-year-old Kelci Lewis, while waiting for section 8 housing to open up for her. On Oct 11, Katerra and her friend left their children – ages 1, 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8 – home alone so they could go to a nightclub.
These classy bitches left at 11:30 p.m. and did not return until almost three hours later. During that time, Kelci was beat to death. Her body was discovered in her crib at around 10:45 the following morning. While I’m no expert, I think it’s safe to assume that means she was never checked on when the women returned home.
Birmingham police spokesman, Lt Sean Edwards, confirmed that there were obvious signs of trauma to the baby and stated the 8-year-old boy in the home is responsible.
“It is believed that while the mother and friend were at the club, the 8-year-old viciously attacked the 1-year-old because the 1-year-old would not stop crying,” Edwards said, “The 1-year-old suffered from severe head trauma as well as major internal organ damage which ultimately led to her death.”
After the boy beat the shit out of the baby, he put her back into her crib where she stayed until being found the next morning.…
PHIL CAMPBELL, AL – Russell Meyers was arrested and charged with having sex with his German Shepard after he accidentally left the sounds of him having sex with the dog on a friend’s voicemail.
After the person listened to Meyers making sweet, sweet love to his lady friend, they stopped retching long enough to report the call to police.
When police spoke with Meyers, the former carnival worker admitted he’d had sex with his female German Shepherd multiple times inside the shed he lived in.
Meyers was arrested and charged with four counts of bestiality, one count of possession of marijuana and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $6,000 and he was ordered not to have contact with his neighbor, animals or firearms.
Meyers was charged under a new state law that just went into effect a year ago. This new law makes bestiality a Class A misdemeanor and, if the district attorney can prove that Meyer’s motivation for fucking his dog was a sexual one, he would have to register as a sex offender.…
TRAFFORD, AL – Police have arrested 23-year-old Misty Wright and her boyfriend, 39-year-old Johnathon Talley, after Wright’s 3-year-old daughter was found unconscious in a pool of her own vomit.
On Monday, Wright and Talley called 911 after finding Jettie Adams laying in a pool of vomit on a mattress on the porch of their trailer. Paramedics rushed the girl to the hospital where she would be pronounced dead.
An autopsy would reveal the girl died from severe internal injuries – the result of being repeatedly struck in the chest, abdomen and head.
“She was hit was such force her intestines were damaged,” said Chief Deputy Randy Christian, adding that she likely suffered a long, painful death all alone after going out to the porch to lie down on the mattress where she stayed all night. “It’s the saddest case I can recall.”
Several children found living in the trailer were placed into the custody of the Department of Human Resources. Neighbors say they didn’t know the family well, but the law is very familiar with Talley.…
UPDATE – The body of Stephen Hutcheson was found yesterday (July 4) in a wooded area near Adger, AL. Authorities responding to a call about a suspicious vehicle that had been in the location for several days discovered the 2005 Dodge Stratus with Hutcheson inside. He appears to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
MCCALLA, AL – Authorities are searching for 47-year-old Stephen “Hut” Sean Hutcheson after his wife and two children were found shot to death on Sunday.
Deputies were called to the Hutcheson home early Sunday evening by a relative who was concerned since family members hadn’t heard from the Hutchesons. After making a forced entry into the home, they would find the bodies of 49-year-old Doris, shot twice in the head, and 14-year old Kimberly, who was shot once in the head and once in the face.
Both are suspected to have been asleep, but it’s being reported that 12-year-old Peyton probably was awake at the time of his murder. He was shot twice in the face and once in the neck; he was found on the couch.…
UPDATE – While it does appear that Medley had some sort of “sexual contact” with Buster, there is now doubt that he (to put it directly but crudely) anally raped Buster, as Buster was seen by a veterinarian and found to be in good shape. This is not what you’d expect had a 5- to 10-pound dog been penetrated by a grown man’s penis.
I just made myself gag. And then I laughed while the word “micropenis” danced about in my head.
GENEVA, AL – You could say that 39-year-old Jonathan Medley screwed the pooch, but if you want to be completely accurate, you’d instead say that he got caught fucking his wife’s dog.
Probably no one would’ve known that Medley was spending time making sweet, sweet love to the canine had his wife not suspected he was having an affair and set up a recording device. Instead of catching him with another woman, she caught him with her dog.
Can you imagine coming home and watching/listening to the recording of your spouse going hard and heavy with your dog?…
MENTONE, AL – A small town in Alabama had its first homicide in 25 years after 22-year-old Tyler Blansit admitted he beat his mother to death with a baseball bat after arguing about grades.
When police first arrived at the home after receiving a 911 call from Blansit, a student at University of Alabama-Birmingham who had come home after the spring semester ended.
Blansit claimed that he and his mother had been attacked, and that he sustained scratches and a knot on the head. His mother, 45-year-old Sherry Blansit, was found dead in the backyard after someone used a baseball bat to cave her skull in.
When they got Blansit to the Sherriff’s Office to be interviewed, it wasn’t long before he admitted he was the one responsible for his other’s murder. He confessed to using the bat to beat the poor lady to death after they got into an argument over his college grades.
Blansit was arrested and charged with his mother’s murder. He’s currently in the DeKalb County Jail.…
JEMISON, AL – Authorities charged Eric “Heath” Price with murder after he shot and killed his wife inside a doctor’s office before turning the gun on himself.
Leaj Price, 24, got into a a domestic situation with her husband that got so bad she felt the need to run from the home and to a doctor’s office next door. She was frantically trying to get in while screaming for someone to call the police.
Dr. Jay Patel went to the main entrance and found Leaj struggling with her husband, 26-year-old Eric “Heath” Price. “He wouldn’t let go of her hand and he just stood at the doorway,” Patel adds.
Patel said Eric Price threatened him with a gun, so he locked a dozen other patients and employees in a back room. “Before anything could happen, I heard a pop then I heard her stop screaming,” Patel says.
After shooting Leaj in the head, Eric walked back to the couple’s rental home next door and staged a standoff with police that lasted several hours.…
BESSEMER, AL – Bessemer police have charged Cassie Townsend after the two-year-old she was caring for died from drinking a grape soda spiked with the woman’s methadone.
Police say that around 1 a.m. Saturday morning, Townsend rushed Demonie Hendon to the hospital after realizing the grape soda she spiked with methadone was missing and Hendon was acting sick.
For those of you unaware, methadone is a medication that reduces withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotic drugs. It allows the addict to get high without the associated drug addiction. Methadone is normally not supposed to leave the clinic from where it is dispensed.
By time Hendon was admitted to the hospital, he was unresponsive and placed on life support. Townsend, who is the boy’s aunt or godmother, bonded out of jail after initially being charged with chemical endangerment of a child that morning.
However, Hendon was taken off of life support on Monday, and Townsend was arrested again, charged with chemical endangerment resulting in death. Townsend is currently in the Jefferson County Jail on a $60,000 bond.…
MOBILE, AL – Police have arrested 38-year-old Hiawatha Robinson, accusing him of killing his 8-year-old daughter while engaged in the act of sodomy.
In September, Hiawayi Robinson was reported missing after leaving her father’s home to walk to her aunt’s and never arriving. In news reports at the time, Robinson can be seen with his ex-wife pleading with the public for help in finding his daughter.
Hiawayi would be found dead behind an abandoned building two days later. Now, two months later, police have charged Robinson with the girl’s death, claiming he killed her while he was sexually assaulting her.
Authorities arrested Robinson on Tuesday and charged him with first-degree sodomy and murder. In Alabama, the first degree sodomy charge means someone is accused of engaging in ‘deviant sexual intercourse’ with someone under the age of 12.
“Deviant sexual intercourse is defined in the law of the state of Alabama as sexual gratification involving the sexual organs of one person and the mouth or the anus of another person,” Rich said.…
Back in 2012, the daughter of Kristopher Speigner and Joy Lynn Speigner died after ingesting a dish washing detergent tablet. They did not call for help until the following morning because, according to police, they were “too high and too drunk” to do anything to save her.
Almost a year later, they were both arrested and charged with negligent homicide and ordered held on $6000 bond. They made bail, but failed to appear for their bench trial in September and a judge issued a warrant for their arrest.
“Last time we had a court date, we continued it, but they were still required to be here and they didn’t show up at that time,” explained ADA Jason Scully-Clemmons. “I felt it had to do with the fact they knew it was gonna be continued, and so that was not much of a big deal.…
ONEONTA, AL – A 10-year-old Boy Scout accidentally hanged himself with the rope he was using to earn a merit badge for knot tying.
A.J. Underwood was found by his mother hanging from the practice rope in his bedroom Friday night. She got him down and carried him outside screaming for help.
A neighbor performed CPR until paramedics arrived, but A.J. would be pronounced dead at St. Vincent’s Blount hospital a short time later. Investigators believe the boy’s death was a freak accident.
“We had been learning how to tie rope, tie knots in ropes in Boy Scouts,” said A.J.’s aunt, Dana Wiesman. “He came into the house and had unpacked his Boy Scout bag, and he went in his room and was apparently playing with the rope and slipped and got caught in it.”
A.J. was a student at Oneonta Elementary School and leaves behind three sisters and his mother. Wiseman said the family isn’t doing well, but that the outpouring of community support is helping them get through it minute by minute.…
That’s bad enough. But the kicker is that the girl had been sent to the bathroom as bait in a sting orchestrated by a teacher trying to catch the boy in the act.
First, here’s a bit of background. Teachers at Sparkman Middle School were having a lot of problems dealing with a 16-year-old boy at the school. The kid wasn’t demonstrating your standard juvenile hijinks; he was violent and sexually aggressive towards female students.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the issues school administration has had with the teen, starting after a 2008 suspension for hitting a student:
Feb 2009 – Suspended for “sexual harassment.”
Apr 2009 – Received in-school suspension for disrespecting a teacher.
Sep 2009 – Suspended for trying to pay another student to beat up a girl
Oct 2009 – Banned from school bus for 10 days and given three days in-school suspension for telling off school bus driver.…
Police believe Jones killed his five children, between the ages of 1 and 8, then drove to Alabama where he dumped their bodies on a dirt road in a rural area. The kids had been reported missing by their mother on Sept. 3.
Jones was pulled over at a motor vehicle checkpoint in Smith County, Mississippi. He became agitated when a deputy questioned him about an odor of chemicals coming from his Cadillac Escalade. When the deputy searched Jones’ vehicle, he found chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine and some Spice.
Even worse, officers found what appeared to be bleach, muriatic acid, blood and possible body fluids inside the vehicle. A quick background check on Jones revealed he was wanted in South Carolina “regarding a welfare concern of his children,” who were on a national missing persons list.
It was at this point Jones admitted he’d killed his five children and led officers to their decomposed bodies along a logging road in Alabama.…
OZARK, AL – After a four day manhunt, police have captured 44-year-old David Pitts, the man accused of raping a woman and her 8-year-old daughter at knife-point.
Pitts was arrested at a Boynton Beach, Florida hospital without incident after the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that he was being treated there.
Four days earlier, Pitts fled from Ozark, Alabama after he was accused of raping a 30-year-old woman and her 8-year-old daughter. The woman said Pitts lived nearby, but was inside her home when she arrived with her daughter Thursday evening.
He reportedly abducted them at knife point and made the woman drive her car to a secluded location 10 miles away. He then raped the woman at gunpoint and made her daughter watch. After he was finished, he allegedly made the woman watch as he raped her little girl.
Pitts held the mother and daughter until the next morning, at which time he forced the woman to drive to a residential area where he jumped out and ran.…
