Sacramento, CA – Police in California have arrested a 17-year-old girl after they say she faked her own abduction last week.
Last Thursday, the family of Christina Almanza called police after they found her missing and had a voicemail from the teen stating she had been abducted and was being held hostage by several men. The family then began receiving a series of text messages from Almanza in which she informed them she was in a basement with two other girls, and didn’t know where she was. She also indicated that someone might have been killed.
A statewide Amber Alert was issued and a task force of police, deputies, FBI agents and U.S. Marshals were assembled who began searching for the girl, locating her on Friday afternoon. Police found her in a home of a man she had met online. She was unharmed, but the same cannot be said for the aggressive pit bull police shot when they entered the home.
Police questioned Almanza, the mother of a 2-year-old, who finally cracked and admitted the entire thing was a hoax.…Continue Reading
Hollywood, CA – LAPD officers were forced to shoot and kill a 26-year-old man from Pennsylvania who went on a shooting rampage on a downtown street in Hollywood this past Friday.
No one knows for sure why 26-year-old Tyler Brehm decided to use his Smith & Wesson handgun to randomly shoot at motorists on Sunset Blvd, but friends and family say he had been stressed out lately and a recent breakup with Alicia Alligood, his hot ass girlfriend, may not have helped his mental state.
The pair had dated for four years and known each other since they were five. His last entry on his Facebook page was made two days before he began shooting at cars, and it was changing his relationship status to being single. The couple had just recently moved out of an apartment and she told reporters that Brehm recently started taking pharmaceutical drugs.
Witnesses say Brehm was walking in the middle of the street screaming that he wanted to die. He shot at a Mercedes-Benz, hitting the driver in the jaw and chest, then walked to Sunset Blvd.…Continue Reading
Irvine, CA — Parents these days are so lazy. Why, back in my day, if you wanted your wayward spawn beaten for breaking the rules, you did it your damn self. Now it appears as if you can outsource the job to an “enforcer” of sorts…
According to police, a couple who believed their 15-year-old son was smoking sought the help of a fellow churchgoer, a man believed to be the “go-to guy” when it came to violently disciplining children, to set the kid straight.
After finding the teen with a lighter in his possession, the ‘rents reportedly dropped the boy off at 39-year-old Paul Kim’s house, where, with dad’s blessing, he was hit in the back of the legs with a metal pole about a dozen times.
Kim was arrested Tuesday, after teachers at the teen’s school noticed the severe bruising on the backs of his legs and contacted CPS. Charged with willful cruelty to a child, Kim posted $100,000 bail and was released on Thursday.
Investigators have reportedly received information that other families at the same church have used Kim in the same capacity.…Continue Reading
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A California prison psychiatrist is facing conspiracy charges after police say she faked a rape to trick her husband into moving out of their high crime neighborhood.
Laurie Ann Martinez, 36, told police that on April 10, she walked into her home to find a stranger in her kitchen. She told them the man grabbed her and punched her in the face, knocking her unconscious. When she woke up she found her pants and underwear pulled down to her ankles with numerous items from her home missing.
Police detectives say they had already spent hundreds of hours on the case when one of Martinez’s prison co-workers came forward and told them Martinez had talked about faking a crime to convince her husband to move out of their neighborhood.
Before long, police had unraveled Martinez’s lies and learned she had enlisted the help of her friend, 33-year-old Nicole April Snyder, to stage the fake robbery and rape. Martinez split her own lip with a pin, scraped her knuckles with sandpaper and had Snyder punch her in the face while wearing boxing gloves.…Continue Reading
LONG BEACH, Calif. — A poor woman in California met a horrifying end when she was crushed by an elevator after it became stuck between floors and she tried to climb out.
Annette Lujan, 48, was inside an elevator at Cal State Long Beach when it became stuck somewhere near the third floor. She had already alerted others that she was trapped inside and fire crews were on their way to assist her. But Lujan decided to take matters into her own hands and asked someone who was there to help her climb out.
Lujan had gotten about halfway out of the elevator when, like a horror movie, the damn thing decided this was the perfect time not to be stuck any longer. The 2000-pound elevator moved and Lujan was crushed between the floor of the elevator and the shaft.
We posted a similar story a couple years ago in which the drummer for the band Maserati, Gerhardt Fuchs, died after trying to jump out of an elevator stuck between floors.…Continue Reading
Daly City, CA - A woman in California has been charged with torture after she allegedly poured boiling water on her sleeping ex-husband and then whacking him with a baseball bat.
Police say 39-year-old Jesusa Ursonal Tatad and her ex-husband lived together until last month when Tatad reportedly became a tad upset after learning her ex had a new girlfriend. Prosecutors say she waited for the man to return home from a late shift, then dumped a pot of boiling water on him as he slept.
When the poor guy jumped up in excrutiating pain and ran to the bathroom, his psycho ex was waiting for him there wielding a baseball bat. After she clubbed him in the head, the man made it out of the home and flagged down someone who called police.
The man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, suffering from second- and third-degree burns to over 60 percent of his body. Because of his injuries, the man was unable to speak but according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, he is expected to survive but ‘he’s in for a long, long recovery.’
Tatad is facing life in prison if convicted on charges of aggravated mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence as well as torture.…Continue Reading
Police responded to the couple’s home Saturday evening after receiving a call from the “distressed” 62-year-old man. When they arrived, they found the man suffering from lacerations to his genital area. The man reportedly told police his wife of 32 years tried to sever his penis with a pair of large scissors…scissors that police say resembled poultry shears. Ouch.
Fortunately for him, she did not succeed. The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The injuries were deemed non-life threatening and he was soon released.
Police say the alleged snippin’ may have been the result of a long-standing marital dispute.
Virginia Valdez has been charged with mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and felony domestic violence. She was released Sunday on $100,000 bond.
Santa Ana, CA – Gladys Remigio, 17, and her two accomplices are in police custody after Remigio’s plan to kidnap a baby and present it as her own failed miserably. This after reportedly telling her out-of-town boyfriend that she had been carrying his pup for the last nine months. Remigio was said to have recently moved from New York state to Santa Ana. As she had allegedly told her San Diego boyfriend nine months earlier that she was pregnant with his child, she was under significant pressure to deliver. Bahahhahahahaha. Sorry.
Conveniently, her roommate had a 15-day old baby that would do just fine. Prosecutors say Remigio hired ‘hardcore gang members’ Robert Henry Rodriguez, 19, and Steven Quirino, 20, to snatch the baby during what was to look like a robbery. Remigio and the mother would, then, both be apparent victims.
Prosecutors described Remigio and her partners-in-crime ransacking the house Remigio shared with the mother and stealing a video game console. The mother was said to have been forced into a bedroom at the time.…Continue Reading
Hollywood, CA – In a sick twist on the casting couch, a Hollywood talent agent for child actors has been arrested and accused of sexually assaulting one of his clients.
Martin Weiss, 47, has been charged with eight felony counts of child molestation after one of his past clients, now 18, says he was forced to have sex with Weiss over a three years period starting when he was 11 or 12 years old.
He told police that Weiss told him that this was a common practice in the biz, which I really don’t doubt, and that he’d kept the abuse a secret in fear of damaging his career and hurting his family. After the Penn State child sex scandal broke, the victim says he was afraid there may be more victims so he confronted Weiss in a mid-November phone call that he recorded.
Weiss admits to the sexual activity in the phone call, but denied there were any similarities between him and Jerry Sandusky because he says the victim, at age 12, was the one who initiated the sexual contact.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA — Now that the turkey has settled, and because you couldn’t pay me to set foot in a retail store today, I figured I’d get a couple stories posted before slipping back into a food coma.
In what officials are calling “shopping rage,” an unidentified woman, trying to get her grubby paws on more sale items, sprayed as many as 20 other shoppers with pepper spray at the Walmart in Porter Ranch late Thursday night.
According to police Sgt. Jose Valle, store employees had brought out a crate of discounted Xbox 360s, and as the crowd waited for the unwrapping, the woman began spraying people “in order to get an advantage.”
Ten people were slightly injured by the pepper spray and 10 others suffered minor bumps and bruises in the chaos, Valle said. They were treated at the scene.
“People could have gotten trampled,” said Valle. “Good thing there were no small kids.”
The woman apparently used the spray tactic in other areas of the store as well, but no other injuries have been reported.…Continue Reading
Stockton, CA – Lincoln Unified School District has placed one of its teachers on paid leave while investigating allegations she was operating a collective of pornographic websites using her district-issued Apple laptop. Heidi Kaeslin, 35, was the creator of teachertitties.com and mysluttyteachers.com which, by name, appear to be educational sites. Sadly, the Lincoln Unified School District disagrees.
According to reports, the investigation concerned allegations Kaeslin (pictured) and Richard Fields, 51, were using the school computer to support several for-profit websites, adult-oriented sites. Kaeslin, a special-education teacher, has worked for Lincoln Unified since 2002. She also served as the Lincoln High girls soccer coach during part of that time. Fields, incidentally, was Lincoln High’s School Resource Officer at the time.
District officials became aware of the possible misuse of her computer after her husband – reportedly suspicious of the relationship between Kaeslin and Fields – told them of her endeavors. The district is said to have confiscated her school-issued laptop and hired a computer expert to perform a forensic study of the hard drive contents.…Continue Reading
WHITMORE, Calif. – We have hundreds of stories involving women killing their infants after giving birth. Some choose to suffocate the baby while others stab them to death. Others, like the woman police arrested in California, let their baby starve to death.
Jessica Nicole Bradford, 23, was arrested Sunday after the mummified remains of her baby were found inside a utility closet at Julian Youth Academy. Bradford lived and worked at the school that’s described as a Christian residential boarding school for troubled teens.
She admitted to police that after getting pregnant she hid her pregnancy from everyone, including her boyfriend of three years, giving birth to a baby girl on Sep 19th. Instead of dropping her off at a hospital, or giving the child up for adoption, Bradford decided to kill the infant by doing nothing it all, including not even giving the girl a name.
She admitted to hiding her daughter in a vacant building where she lived for four days before starving to death. Bradford said she would periodically check on her baby during this time to check on the progress of her murder, in between working and visiting her boyfriend.…Continue Reading
Los Altos, CA — In what prosecutors are describing as a “carefully plotted” attempt to kill her estranged husband, 50-year-old Laura Jean Wenke, dressed in coveralls, rubber boots and bubble wrap, approached the man from behind and proceeded to get stabby.
According to police, wacky Wenke showed up at the couple’s business, identified as Wenke Construction, at about 7:00 p.m. on September 15. I don’t know how she managed to sneak up on the man, but
squeak sneak she did. Police say she hit him once in the ribs with a stun gun and stabbed him multiple times in the neck and chest as he sat at his computer.
The man somehow survived the sneak attack and notified police – officers found him bleeding outside the business. He was taken to Stanford Hospital in critical condition and released a week later.
Wenke, for all of her “careful” planning, apparently failed to draw up an escape plan…she was apprehended inside the building, her bubble wrap outfit streaked with blood.
Why all the hatred?…Continue Reading
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – A 43-year-old woman in California is in a bit of trouble after she was accused of having sex with a 12-year-old friend of her son.
Police have charged the extremely lonely Patricia Ann Serrano with three felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 after they say she had sex with the boy once in her home and once in her car.
The victim’s mother first became suspicious of her son’s relationship with Serrano after she discovered them in a room together. She did not observe any wrongdoing, but reports are they had been kissing.
Police feel there may be more victims and are asking anyone with any information to call Supervising District Attorney Investigator Lou Gutierrez at (714) 347-8794.
Raise your hand if you feel this isn’t that big of a deal and the term “victim” is being used very loosely. Ok men, put your hands down. Now raise your hand if you feel this woman should be in prison for the full 12 years she is looking at if convicted.…Continue Reading
Lakewood, CA — A 47-year-old transient was arrested on suspicion of murder Tuesday, accused of bludgeoning an elderly man to death with a baseball bat in the sporting goods section of the store. Police are calling the attack random and unprovoked.
Surveillance cameras show Richard Lawrence Kalfin wandering the aisles for a short time before the 74-year-old victim even entered the store. Kalfin’s wandering led him to the sporting goods section of the store, where he grabbed an aluminum baseball bat from a display rack.
Kalfin continued walking through the aisles, stopping only when he spotted the 74-year-old victim. Witnesses claim Kalfin asked the man for change, and when he was denied, he started swinging. And he didn’t stop until the victim was good and dead….
“It was very scary — very, very scary, to hear the noise of someone’s life being taken away,” said witness Jennifer Thompson. “Noises like moans and groans … you could hear when he hit him. It was awful, so awful. And then I went around the corner and peeked … and he just walked out like it was nothing.”
Kalfin was arrested at the scene.…Continue Reading
Christopher Schwanke, 35, was arrested outside the couple’s home Monday evening after a brief tussle with the man of the house. Schwanke. Heh.
The woman apparently thought her hubby was trying to get all romantical when she first felt the hand on her crotch. Imagine her surprise when she realized dear hubby was sound asleep. Now imagine the horror that poor woman felt when she leaned over the side of the bed and found that Schwanke was attached to the digits buried in her lady bits.
After what I imagine would be at least three full minutes of violent projectile vomiting, the woman dialed 911. In the meantime, her husband opened up a can of whoop ass on the depraved prowler, restraining him until police arrived.
The couple later reported having had a couple of run-ins with the bozo in the past month.…Continue Reading
San Mateo, CA – Vittorio Vincent Valdez, 27, is clearly in need of the type of guidance that only Demonites can provide. This after the Half Moon Bay, California man punched his 82-year-old grandmother in the face several times, according to police. Please do not let him down.
San Mateo prosecutors allege that at approximately 11:30PM on Sept. 24, Valdez’ grandmother was driving him from Palo Alto to Half Moon Bay in her car because he has a suspended license. According to reports, Valdez grew angry at the slow speed at which she was driving and pushed down his grandmother’s right leg to accelerate the vehicle. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said that the woman became frightened woman and tried pulling into a Shell gas station for help. Valdez then reportedly ‘yanked her from the driver’s seat and threw her into the passenger side.’ Prosecutors allege that Valdez then punched her in the face several times and kept her inside when she tried to exit.
A witness at a nearby 7-Eleven called 911.…Continue Reading
A 21-year-old was in Blue Rock Springs Park Friday night with friends when he bet $100 he could fit his ass into a child’s swing. You know, the plastic ones made for toddlers that are equipped with leg holes.
The man lubed himself up with some laundry detergent and successfully squeezed himself into the swing, winning the $100. Unfortunately, his winning will barely cover the costs of having to be rescued by Vallejo fighters. See, the man got stuck in the swing. Even worse, the man has douchebag friends who did what I would have done when they left him stuck in the swing.
He would not be found until 9 hours later after a park employee arrived and called police upon hearing the man’s screams for help. Ok, up to this point the story is kind of humorous to me. But what happened next is the hilarious part.…Continue Reading
Anaheim, CA — The pathetic lookin’ sack of crap to the left is 24-year-old Joshua Robey – he’s accused of trying to kill his 2-month-old son by repeatedly shaking and punching him and swinging him around by the neck in a “noose-like” blanket.
Robey’s girlfriend apparently suspected him of cheating on her, so she set up a hidden camera in her home to record him while he was alone in the home, caring for the infant. And I can’t even begin to imagine the horror, fear, anger and revulsion she felt when she viewed the recording the next morning.
According to prosecutors, Robey is seen wrapping a blanket around the infant’s neck and picking him up by lifting both ends of the blanket like a noose. He is then seen swinging the child, by his neck, for more than a minute. He was just gettin’ started…
Police said Robey laid the child down and proceeded to punch him in the chest several times with a closed fist. He then slapped the child numerous times, grabbed him by the throat and began to violently shake him.…Continue Reading
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A 15-year-old girl and her 16-year-old boyfriend are currently behind bars suspected of killing the girl’s mother and step-father.
According to Lt. Mary Leef of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the victims were reported missing on Tuesday “under suspicious circumstances.” Family members pointed police to the missing woman’s daughter and her boyfriend after she was seen discarding some of her mother’s possessions.
One neighbor said that when she asked the teen where her mother was, the girl told her that she was in the hospital having surgery. Turns out she was actually in a vacant lot rotting in a shallow grave. Her body was found on Saturday after someone walking by noticed a foul odor.
On Wednesday, police would contact the teens who would take police to a vacant lot a block away from the victims’ home. There, inside another shallow grave, was the body of the girl’s stepfather. The teens were arrested that night on suspicion of murder.
Because of their ages, the teens’ identities have not been released.…Continue Reading
