BATON ROUGE, LA – Police have arrested 58-year-old Eldridge Dukes after they say he shot his 18-year-old son in the ass during an argument over orange juice.
Dukes and his son got into an argument on Sunday about having no orange juice that led to the teenager breaking a vase.
In response, Dukes grabbed a handgun and chased his son out of the house and down the street, firing several times. His son was hit once in the ass and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, say police.
Dukes was arrested and placed in the parish prison on counts of attempted manslaughter and illegal use of a dangerous weapon.
Some people just take their food seriously, man. A couple of months ago a 14-year-old stabbed his older brother to death over a soft drink and a bag of chips, and last year a man choked the shit out of his cookie eating roommate.…
In October 2013, Norgren walked into his brother’s room and began babbling about nonsense. He then punched out a window, cutting his hand, and wandered outside. He was eventually discovered by a hunter in the woods, standing by the hunter’s ATV.
Norgren approached the hunter and wrestled away his rifle, then allegedly said, “Sasquatch kills the hunter.” Norgren then knocked the hunter unconscious by hitting him over the head with a rock. When the hunter came to, Norgren was on top of him trying to remove his arms.
“When Mr. McDonald was unconscious, Linus Norgren, with unspeakable violence, caused two fractured and dislocated arms,” the prosecutor told the jury. “He systematically and violently ripped Mr. McDonald’s arms out of his torso.”
Norgren then began strangling the hunter, shoved his fingers down the man’s throat and gouged his eyes.…
According to police, 38-year-old Russell Mitchell was cashing in some lottery tickets at a Murphy USA gas station Friday afternoon, when 62-year-old Richard Nielson approached him. Nielson apparently called out Mitchell’s name just moments before shooting him in the head at point-blank range.
Nielson then approached Mitchell’s wife(?), 29-year-old Jessica Modolo, as she sat waiting for Mitchell to return to the car. Police say Nielson shot her once in the stomach, killing her unborn child, and once in the head. It is believed Modolo, who remains in critical condition, was about four months along in her pregnancy. Inside the car with Modolo, her 6-year-old son, and Mitchell’s daughters, ages 9 and 7.
Nielson then walked behind the vehicle and put a bullet in his own head.
This whole bunch of bullshit apparently stems from a dispute over some lawn equipment that Nielson had somehow procured from Mitchell.…
PASCO COUNTY, FL – Justin Colby is behind bars facing attempted murder charges after the 33-year-old allegedly tried aborting his girlfriend’s baby with a 2006 Dodge Charger.
On Monday, Colby got into an argument with his girlfriend, 32-year-old Crystal Noordhuizen, who is seven months pregnant. Not wanting to exasperate the situation, Noordhuizen left their home and began walking down the street.
That’s when police say Colby called her on her cell phone and asked, “Are you ready for your abortion date?” before veering his vehicle off the road and striking Noordhuizen from behind. Colby crashed into a pole, got out of the car and walked to his home where he fled on a white motorcycle.
Noordhuizen was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with minor injuries, while Colby was later picked up by police and charged with attempted murder.
This isn’t the first time Colby has been accused of hitting someone with a car. In 2012, Colby was charged with aggravated battery causing great bodily harm after he ran over his brother.…
SCHILLER PARK, IL — Krystle El Khatib, 29, has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to murder her children with poisoned apple juice because she was angry with their father.
Prosecutors say Khatib forced her 9-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter to drink two glasses each of apple juice she had poisoned with crushed up benzodiazepine pills, an anti-anxiety drug. When her son refused to drink the juice, Khatib allegedly threatened to hit him.
Official say that after her children had drank the juice, Khatib tried to kill herself by ingesting benzodiazepine and the painkiller Norco. Thankfully she didn’t use enough of the drug to kill the kids because the 9-year-old woke up vomiting the following day. When he was unable to wake his mother, he texted his father for help.
The boy’s father took him and his sister to the hospital, leaving Khatib in the house (lol), where they were treated for poisoning before being released into his custody. Police would later find Khatib at her home and transported her to the hospital.…
Toms River, NJ - James Crudup is facing attempted murder charges after the 44-year-old ran over his girlfriend several times in a gas station parking lot.
Crudup and his 35-year-old girlfriend pulled into a Hess parking lot and immediately got into a fight outside of his pickup truck. The fight, which started as a shouting match, escalated to the point that Crudup threw the woman to the ground and choked her out.
The woman was able to get up and run towards the gas pumps, at which point Crudup entered his 2000 Dodge Durango pickup and drove towards her. A Hess employee tried to push her out of the way, but the woman ended up pinned between the bumper of Crudup’s truck and the gas pumps.
Not being a man to half-ass the situation, Crudup ran her over as she was lying on the ground, crushing her legs and hitting the gas pumps again. In a final hurrah, he took the opportunity to run her ass over a third time as he fled the scene.…
ROCHESTER, NY – Police have charged 28-year-old Alicia Gould with attempted murder after they say she tried killing her boyfriend by throwing a plugged-in radio alarm clock into the bathtub he was bathing in.
Police were called to a Super 8 Motel early Friday morning where they found Gould and her boyfriend having a domestic disturbance. According to Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering, the pair had gotten into an argument that Gould tried ending with an alarm clock.
While her boyfriend was taking a bath, Gould reportedly tossed a plugged-in alarm clock in the water in an attempt to electrocute him. Fortunately for him, the room’s ground fault interrupter went off and stopped the electrical current from making its way through the water.
Pickering said that there will probably be some circumstances surrounding her actions that may be used in her defense, but that under New York State Law, Gould had to be arrested on the spot and taken into custody.
Gould is now looking at second degree attempted murder charges and is being held in the Monroe County Jail on $20,000 cash bail.…
Two hours after classes ended on Friday, Nash approached his teacher and put his arm around her. When she rebuked his advances, Nash body-slammed her to the ground, choked her until she was unconscious, then raped her.
By the time the teacher regained consciousness and called police, Nash had already left the scene. He’d also put a used condom in her purse, threw her cell phone in the trash and took her car keys.
Police would locate him five hours later driving the teacher’s car. Once in custody, Nash admitted he sexually assaulted the teacher. Nash has been charged with attempted first degree murder, sexual battery, robbery and grand theft.
Nash’s father, Victor Marshall Nash Sr., said that he was ‘shocked’ to hear his son had been accused of raping his teacher, adding that he and his mother “tried to raise him as both loving parents.” Nash Sr.…
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Briana Holland is facing a slew of charges, including attempted murder, after the 22-year-old admitted to stuffing her newborn baby inside a trash can and leaving it to die.
Last Friday night, an employee at United Technology Carrier Corporation called a maintenance worker to a bathroom because they thought they heard an animal in the bathroom’s trash can.
The maintenance worker looked inside the trash can and found a newborn baby wrapped in bags used to dispose of sanitary napkins. The “lower half of the baby was put in a brown paper bag” and the “baby’s head was inside in another brown paper bag.”
Even worse, after the bags were removed, the baby was found to have toilet paper tightly wrapped “approximately 15 times” around his neck, court documents said, and had tissue and a plastic tampon applicator in his mouth. The baby was purple, cold and gasping for air before he stopped breathing.
The maintenance worker quickly removed the items from the baby’s mouth, wrapped the baby in a shirt and used his hands to stop the bleeding umbilical cord.…
HEBRON, MD – Paul Hurst and Cary Edwards have been accused of severely beating their roommate, trying to carve a Juggalo tattoo off his arm, then setting the man on fire.
The incident reportedly happened Thursday shortly after 1 a.m. after Hurst, 33, and Edwards, 35, got into an argument with their roommate, 31-year-old Zachary Swanson.
The argument escalated, and the suspects beat the shit out of Swanson. Afterwards, they attempted to carve a Juggalo tattoo off Swanson’s arm. Unsuccessful at removing the tattoo, they decided to burn it off by pouring a flammable liquid on Swanson’s arm and setting it on fire.
Swanson was left on the ground for hours before the pair dropped him off at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Swanson was later flown to a burn center in Baltimore, where he remains in critical condition with extensive injuries, including severe burns.
Hurst and Edwards were arrested and charged with first and second degree attempted murder, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment and a deadly weapon charge.…
And my eyes just rolled so hard they damn near fell out the back of my head….
Judith Jones, 44, is facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault after her failed attempt at making her husband dead… something she had apparently been planning for quite some time.
Police say the couple’s 16-year-old daughter interrupted the attack late last month, quite possibly saving her father’s life. She later told police her mother had been planning to kill her father for about a year.
When questioned, Jones brought up the whole fish filleting spiel. Needless to say, that sorry ass excuse didn’t fly. She eventually admitted to the deed.
“I’ve seen stabbings before, but I’ve never had anybody tell us that they were dreaming that they were filleting fish when they committed a crime. It’s a first for that,” said Sheriff Fred Abdalla.…
The alleged victim in this cookie caper, an unidentified 49-year-old woman, told police she believed her roommate, Allen Hall, was joking when he threatened to kill her for eating three of his Chips Ahoy! cookies for breakfast.
The woman told police she was getting dressed in the bathroom Wednesday morning, when Hall started pounding on the bathroom, making death threats and stuff.
She opened the door, she said, and exclaimed, “If you’re going to kill me, then go ahead!”
Probably not the smartest thing to say to an apparently unhinged, cookie-less motherfucker first thing in the morning, ya know.
According to the victim, Hall wrapped his hands around her throat and threw her into the tub, causing her to hit the back of her head on the tile. He then reportedly climbed on top of her and proceeded to choke her until she found it difficult to speak or breathe.…
TALLAHASSEE, FL — Devante Johnson has been charged with attempted murder after the 18-year-old allegedly tried stabbing a man to death while having sex with him in a Tallahassee cemetery.
Police say Johnson and the victim were having sex in a car at the Oakland cemetery around 11 p.m. when Johnson, “referred to a former boyfriend of (the victim’s) by name and said no one would have to worry about (the victim) anymore,” according to court documents.
Johnson then pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim three times in the chest and one time in each arm. The unidentified man was able to kick Johnson out of the car and lock the door.
As Johnson attempted to get back into the car through a partially rolled-down window, the victim sped out of the cemetery and crashed through the cemetery’s fence in the process.
The victim flagged down police, alerting them that he’d been stabbed. He was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery for a punctured lung and lacerated liver.…
The incubator in question, 23-year-old Lasasha Allen, sent a text to the child’s father Saturday, claiming that the child had fallen out of a car window and was injured. She did this, she told police, to get a reaction from the child’s father.
The baby’s father apparently neglected to respond to the text, and because Allen doesn’t want anyone thinking she’s a liar or anything, she had to rough up that baby a bit. She loaded up the baby and another child, aged 7, and went for a drive.
Police say Allen drove to some rural location with a lot of curves, and once she hit about 45 mph, opened the passenger door and pushed the baby out. Then, for whatever reason, she just kinda waited at the scene for a bit before finally taking the child to the hospital.
Allen later told police that her intent was to inflict minor damage so that she would not be caught in a lie.…
HONOLULU, HI – A Hawaiian pro surfer/model has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after purposefully driving her car into an elderly lady in a parking garage.
Jill Anjuli Hansen, 30, was arrested at her apartment Wednesday night in connection to the vehicular assault on 73-year-old Elizabeth Cronklin. Cronklin was hospitalized with cuts and bruises as well as a serious head injury.
Authorities said the incident happened Wednesday morning in the underground parking complex of the Diamond Head Apartments, where Hansen followed Cronklin into the garage. Upon Cronklin exiting her car, Hansen allegedly drove her Volkswagen Passat into her. Apartment maintenance worker Chris Khory, who witnessed the confrontation, said Hansen was about to hit the woman again when he grabbed a crowbar and smashed the back of her windshield.
That’s when Hansen reportedly abandoned her car and fled the scene. Police have stated that Hansen and Cronklin do not know each other and there is no apparent motive at this time.
According to Facebook time-stamps, Hansen updated her status a few hours after the incident, but before her arrest, stating, “I am becoming a professional!…
FAYETTEVILLE, NC — Police in Fayetteville have charged 17-year-old Tyt’ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson with attempted murder after they say she poisoned her grandmother’s collard greens with insecticide.
On Easter Sunday, Johnson got angry with her grandmother, Gaylon Moody, because Moody took her cell phone away for a week as a punishment. In response, Johnson waited until Moody left for church to pour termite killer into a pot of collard greens cooking on the stove.
Later that day, Moody and Clifton Evans returned home and sat down to eat their Easter dinner of collard greens with smoked pig tails, rice, baked chicken, peach cobbler and corn bread. Since you can cook collard greens in a pot of dog piss and not notice, they didn’t notice the termite killer. In fact, Evans liked it so much he had seconds.
But it wasn’t long before Moody and Evans began feeling the pain. “About an hour and a half later, we started getting sick,” Moody said. “My fingers started feeling numb, my chest, my face, my mouth.” The pair attempted driving themselves to the hospital, but found they were unable to do so.…
Ocala, FL — A 13-year-old girl and her 15-year-old boyfriend are in police custody after allegedly ambushing the girl’s mother, slitting her throat, in the hopes of living happily ever after. How fucking cute.
According to police, Yaquelin Galvez-Don lured her mom into the garage early Sunday morning, where the boyfriend, Pedro Solis, informed the woman that he wanted to be with her daughter… cause he could, like, take care of her and stuff. He also told her that she should not have hit him with a stick previously. (Methinks she didn’t hit him hard enough. Or often enough. Or with a big enough stick). Solis then reportedly slashed the woman’s throat and ran inside, intent on doing the same to his beloved’s father.
With the knife to his throat, Galvez-Don’s father pleaded with Solis to seek medical assistance for his wife. No word on what was said between the two, but whatever it was, it worked — he was left uninjured and Solis loaded the woman up and dropped her off at an emergency room.…
KNOXVILLE, TN – A woman wanted for the attempted murder of her mother was arrested after she walked up to a news crew and admitted on camera that she tried to stab her mother to death because her mother was the antichrist and the leader of a satanic cult.
Laurie Nichols told authorities that her daughter, 31-year-old Katie Nichols, busted into her room around 3:40am Tuesday, put a sock in her mouth and told her to eat it. Nichols then tied her mom up and strangled her until she lost consciousness before stabbing her once in the chest with a small kitchen knife, once in the abdomen with a large kitchen knife, and once in the neck with a pair of scissors.
Neighbors called police after hearing Laurie’s screams, but by time they arrived Katie had fled the scene with her young daughter. Laurie was rushed to U.T. Medical Center, where she had surgery and is recovering in ICU.
A news crew went out to the apartment complex and were in the middle of interviewing a neighbor who knew the mother and daughter.…
