Phoenix, AZ — Edward Hartley, who has been convicted of at least six prior sex crimes including rape, reportedly saw two girls – ages 13 and 14 – at a downtown Phoenix bus stop. Court records say that Hartley approached them and initiated a conversation. The two girls told Hartley that they were runaways. He offered the girls a ride.

Court accounts say that Hartley drove the two girls to a Phoenix Days Inn motel and arranged for a room. He then reportedly offered them $400 for sex. To make his proposal seem even more attractive, apparently, court documents describe Hartley pulling out his penis to assure them that it was ‘too small to hurt them.’

Police say the teens agreed. By that, I mean agreed to the $400…

Police say they each admitted to having sex with Hartley while all three were in the motel room bed. Hartley then reportedly gave the girls four counterfeit $100 bills and told them that he would pay the motel for them to keep the room for the next two weeks.…

COTTONWOOD, AZ — A woman has been arrested after she was caught wrapping packing tape around her son’s head and mouth in an act of frustration.

A man asked a deputy to check out a Suburban parked at a Circle K as he had seen a woman “duct taping” the mouth and hands of a small child.

The deputy walked over to the vehicle and calmly stood behind 42-year-old Samantha Lyons who was outside the rear passenger door of the vehicle wrapping a crying 7-year-old’s head with clear packing tape.

The child’s mouth was completely taped shut and another female in the front seat of the vehicle was reportedly yelling at Lyons to stop what she was doing.

When Lyons finished and shut the door, she turned around and saw the officer standing there and immediately began crying. She told the deputy that she was trying to quiet her kid and that she had just gotten frustrated.

With the help of another child in the vehicle, the tape was removed from the boy and he was checked for injuries.…

Gilbert, AZ — Jennifer Barnes, 39, is currently in custody after investigators established probable cause to hold her for the abuse of her 10-year-old adopted son. The abuse was described as sexual, but I am having trouble labeling it. Well… other than “damn evil,” that is…

According to police, the young victim told them that his adoptive mother bound his hands and feet, forced dog shit into his mouth and then duct taped his mouth shut so that he could not spit it out. The victim also described her burning his penis with a lighter and sodomizing him repeatedly with his own toothbrush. Police reports described another incident when the mother repeatedly burned the victim’s penis with a curling iron before tying a necklace around it causing it to bleed. The abuse was reported to have occurred between May of 2010 and August 22 of this year.

Are these the claims of an unhappy adopted child? It doesn’t sound like it. It was discovered during a forensic physical examination that the child had large scars on his pelvic area and legs, consistent with healed burns.…

Gilbert, AZ — Police have arrested a man after they say he refereed a fight between his two sons and another boy while using a handgun to keep the crowd from stopping the fight.

Police say Gabriel Alberto Conde, 33, went with his two sons, ages 14 and 17, to a local park so that the younger boy could fight another 14-year-old boy.

When Conde’s son began to lose the fight, he instructed the older sibling to help his brother. While the two teens held the other boy on the ground, repeatedly kicking him in the head and breaking his jaw, Conde allegedly kept the crowd at bay by threatening them with a .45 handgun.

When police arrived at Conde’s home later, he refused to come outside until after police surrounded his residence and ordered him out using a loudspeaker.

Conde was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, threatening and intimidating, disorderly conduct with a deadly weapon and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His two sons are facing charges of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.…

Gilbert, AZ — Jessica Callaway, 21, is facing numerous charges after her roommate filmed her smacking her 10-month-old baby around.

The roommate, 18-year-old Alexandrea Kingsley told azfamily.com she had been rooming with Callaway and baby Laura for a couple of weeks. During that time, Kingsley compiled a pretty substantial list of “terrible things’ Callaway had done to the child.

“She would leave the baby in dirty diapers until they were so heavy they were falling off her,” said Kingsley. “There’s times she yelled ‘I wish I never had you, maybe I should just give you away, you’re such a mistake I hate you, you piece of….”

Kingsley went on to say that she had witnessed Callaway hitting the child, blowing marijuana smoke in her mouth and feeding her cold medicine to make her sleep.

Finally, on Friday, as Callaway stomped around the house in a snit, Kingsley decided she’d had enough and out came the cell phone. While pretending she was texting, Kingsley began filming the Mother of the Year at work.…

Phoenix, AZ – James Stark, 58, experienced the business end of the Arizona justice system when he was sentenced last week to 7-consecutive life sentences – and an additional 102.5 years in prison – for molesting his granddaughter.

Stark was arrested January 2010 after his 8-year-old granddaughter told a family friend of the abuse and that led to a police investigation. Prosecutors said that Stark had been living in the same home as the victim’s family since November 2008. The Buckeye (Arizona) Police Department investigation led by Det. Joseph Kirby established that Stark molested the girl for more than a year. This means that the molestation must have begun almost immediately.

When the victim’s mother learned of the situation – presumably from the family friend – she took the 8-year-old to the Buckeye Police Department. A statement from the Maricopa County attorney said:

In a subsequent forensic interview the 8-year old disclosed the defendant had performed a variety of sexual acts on her. These acts included showing her pornography, teaching her how to masturbate, digital contact, digital penetration and oral-genital contact.

Elderly Man Impaled With Pruning Shears

August 31, 2011 at 9:05 am by  

TUCSON, AZ — Earlier this week we had a story about a woman who survived a tree branch impaling her through the eye socket and touching her brain.

Now we have an elderly man who has survived pruning shears impaling him through the eye socket — handle first — and lodging themselves in his neck.

Leroy Luetscher, 86, was bending over to pick up some pruning shears he had dropped while doing some gardening last month when he lost his balance and fell on top of them with his face.

As you can see by the accompanying, cringe-inducing x-ray, the handle of the shears entered through the mans eye socket and went down into his neck.

Luetscher said he realized he had picked up the tool in one of the worst ways possible after he stood up and felt the shears sticking out of his face. He also stated it was the worst pain he had ever experienced in his life.

“I didn’t know if my eyeball was still there or what,” Luetscher told The Associated Press on Tuesday.…

CHANDLER, Ariz. – A CPS approved safety monitor and her boyfriend have been arrested and charged with child abuse after an infant was found with 14 broken bones.

A safety monitor is a person, often a family member, entrusted by CPS with the care of a child who has been taken out of their home instead of being placed into foster care. CPS had removed a 4-month-old girl from frying pan her family and placed her into the fire home of a family friend, 25-year-old Angelica Jimenez.

On August 3, Jimenez told police and CPS that she was alone when she found the baby was not breathing and experiencing seizures. At the hospital, doctor’s found that the infant was suffering from fourteen broken bones in her legs and ribs, a cigarette burn to her left arm, and multiple bruises and abrasions.

Fourteen friggin’ bones, man. Think about that. This baby has already had seven times the amount of broken bones in her four months of living than the average American will have in their entire life.…

Man Shoots His Penis With Girlfriend’s Pink Gun

August 10, 2011 at 10:33 am by  

CHANDLER, Ariz. — A man in Arizona is dealing with the fact that he shot his dick with his girlfriend’s pink gun while somewhere, a feminazi just slid off their soaked seat.

Joshua Seto, 27, was walking to the store with his girlfriend, 26-year-old Cara Christopher, when he learned that just because it looks cool in the movies, doesn’t mean you should do it.

Like shooting a gun while holding it sideways, Seto learned that pointing a loaded gun at your junk is retarded when he stuck his girlfriend’s loaded pink handgun in the front waistband of his pants.

Most of us realize what a bad idea this is because well, you run the risk of shooting off your dick. Which is exactly what happened when the pink gun somehow fired.

Seto was not lucky enough for this bullet to just hit the sidewalk, his foot or even his brain. Nope, this bullet hit his dick and continued through his thigh. The bullet. Hit. His dick.

I don’t even want to imagine what an injury like this looks like, but I can’t help it.…

Arizona City, AZ – A 22 year-old ‘Juggalo’ is being held on $100,000 bail after he allegedly molested a 16 year-old special needs girl.

For those of you who don’t know by now, Juggalos are fans of the ‘band’ Insane Clown Posse (the guys that still don’t know how magnets work ),who enjoy painting their faces like clowns.

They’re a particular favorite here at D’D — having been featured killing infants, robbing kids of their candyharassing families in parks and, on a more positive note,  pelting Tila Tequila with rocks. This particular Juggalo is facing one count of child molestation and three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Police were contacted on July 1st by the girl’s parents, who had reason to believe there was an inappropriate relationship between the two. Though the girl denied it initially, a search of her facebook and e-mail (as permitted by her parents) yielded not only explicit conversation between her and Lowe, but nude photographs of the girl she had sent to him upon request.…

Phoenix, AZ – I hate to start the morning with these kind of stories because they are infuriating. As some of you may remember, last week I posted the tragic story of a girl who reportedly died while playing hide-and-seek.

The reports at the time were that 10-year-old Ame Deal was playing the game with other kids late at night, when she climbed into a box in the backyard. She was not discovered untl the next morning, dead from possible positional asphyxiation or suffocation.

In the article I asked a couple questions that had me feeling something wasn’t quite right with the story. Why were these kids were out playing hide and seek unsupervised late at night and why didn’t kids notify adults immediately when they could not find the missing girl. Now we know why. It was all a lie.

The girl was padlocked inside the box overnight as punishment for taking a popsicle. Now, 23-year-old Samantha Allen and her 23-year-old husband John Allen, face first degree murder charges for putting Ame in the box. …

MESA, Ariz. — Police have arrested a man and charged him with murdering his girlfriend and then living with her corpse for over two months.

Like most men, 35-year-old Erik Grumpelt wasn’t pleased when his girlfriend, 39-year-old Malinda Raya, informed him she had slept with other men in their bed. Instead of punching her in her whore mouth, he kneed her in the stomach until she died.

When he realized she would never again have sex with other guys in their bed, or breathe, he claims to have performed CPR on Raya for 30 minutes before calling it.

Figuring his reaction to his girlfriend’s infidelity may have been a bit excessive, and really illegal, he panicked and shoved her under the bed, wrapped in sheets. Fearing he would get caught if he tried to dispose of the body in some fashion, Grumpelt decided to just do nothing and let her rot away inside their apartment, hoping that no one would notice.

He changed the locks on the apartment in an effort to thwart his landlord from discovering Raya’s body and later, after Raya started getting ripe, he began placing room fresheners and sprinkling her corpse with carpet deodorizer.…

Phoenix Girl Dies While Playing Hide And Seek

July 20, 2011 at 8:53 am by  

Phoenix, AZ — This story is a week old, but I figured I’d post it for anyone else who, like me, didn’t see it. A 10-year-old girl playing hide-and-seek was found dead inside a storage locker last week.

The girl was playing outside a home with her cousins and some neighborhood kids late Monday night, early Tuesday morning, when she climbed inside the small trunk to hide. Reports are the girl took considerable pride in not being found by picking some pretty good hiding places in the past, including a dryer.

This time she picked one a little too good. It was a storage locker of some type located in the backyard of the house. She would not be found until the next morning when the adults in the home woke up and began looking for her. Attempts were made to revive her but she had already died, possibly of positional asphyxiation or suffocation.

Police do not suspect foul play, but they did notify child protective services when they found the inside of the home a mess.…

GILBERT, Ariz. — According to police, witnesses described seeing 43-year-old Marnie L. Korhel scream “I will kill you” at her crying 3-month-old several times while inside an Arizona Target store. They became concerned for the child’s well-being and called police.

When police arrived at the location they found Korhel and her baby in the parking lot where she admitted to threatening the infant. She also handed the kid to the officers and said, “Give this baby to CPS… I can’t do this!”

No injuries where found on the baby, but police want Korhel to be charged with domestic violence threats. In the end, Korhel did get her wish when CPS arrived and took custody of her baby.

I dug around for a mugshot but couldn’t find one. If any of you stumble across one let me know and I’ll get it added.

Slowly but surely, Target is approaching the same amount of stories on D’D as Walmart.…

Cochise County, AZ – I don’t know how you screen nannies in your house, but one would think a nanny who loves children would be an asset, right?  That’s what Clayton and Elizabeth Cherry thought.  After all, they love children too.  They love kids so much police allege they just wanna snuggle right up, take off their clothes, show ’em some porn and get busy.  And who better to help with that enterprise than a nanny who’s already got one kid in CPS custody?

Mr. and Mrs. Cherry, both age 28 and victims of the ugly stick, hired Rachel Danea Robison, 26, to come on in and help out with their own kids.  Which, since she clearly already had parenting issues with one child, seemed like a great idea. I guess her gorgeous four-year-old little girl was a bonus.

The Cherrys have three kids, ages 3, 6, and 10.  Arizona CPS was already working with those kids, too.  Sounds like a nanny match made in heaven.  Or, you know, hell. …

Pair Attacked By Maniac With A Meat Cleaver

March 14, 2011 at 10:47 am by  

Phoenix, AZ — Police have arrested a man after they say he attacked a man and a woman with a meat cleaver, sending them both to the hospital with serious injuries.

They have not released the name of the victims, but police are saying 28-year-old Qui Tu Trong was upset over losing his job at a market and showed up at the home of a co-worker. After a verbal altercation, Trong began attacking the man with a meat cleaver.

The victim’s aunt joined in the fray, trying to stop the attack, only to receive some serious injuries of her own. “She had a big cut on her arm,” a neighbor said. “You could see her bone; skin was just hanging. And she had a cut on her head.”

Both victims suffered injuries to their heads and arms. The man is in serious condition, his aunt is reported to be in critical condition.

Police report that they are familiar with the Trong, who fled the scene after the attack, but was later arrested and charged with burglary and attempted murder.…

UPDATE March 15, 2011 – Because the autopsy results on Jill Fattig showed no indication of foul play, the charges against Tim Fattig have been dropped. ~Lizard


TOMBSTONE, AZ – A filmmaker was arrested Wednesday after police found a decomposing body inside his home. Police believe the body belongs to his mother.

According to Tombstone Marshal Billy Cloud, a deputy was sent to do a welfare check on 68-year-old Jill Fattig Wednesday. When he arrived at her home, there was no sight of her. With the woman’s welfare still in question, he went to question her son Timothy Fattig.

34-year-old Fattig is a filmmaker for Desert Scream Productions, a horror-film production company.  Originally, he told the deputy that his mother was in a hospital in Tucson. Police investigated this claim and found it to be untrue, at which point Fattig admitted that his mother had been dead for over a year. Apparently, Fattig claims he was so overcome with grief when he found her dead that he never reported her death.…

Burglar Thwarted By Vigilant Clothes Hamper

March 13, 2011 at 1:31 am by  

MESA, AZ – Mesa police say a home burglary attempt resulted in the arrest of 20-year-old Michael Trias after a common household storage item got involved: after removing the screen from a bedroom window of a townhome Thursday morning, Trias climbed through the window and subsequently became entangled in the clothes hamper that was underneath it. Apparently, upon hearing the commotion, the resident of the home rushed into the room, restrained Trias, and called police.

Police say nothing was taken but reported some damage inside the bedroom in question, which isn’t really surprising–every combative incident I’ve had with a storage solution has resulted in property damage, if not personal injury.

Trias is facing burglary and criminal damage charges.…
