GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. — Police were called to a home early Monday morning after receiving a call that an infant had been attacked by the family’s pet ferret.
When they arrived they found a 4-month-old boy missing some fingers. It seems as if the ferret had gotten into where the boy was sleeping and started chewing off all his fingers. By the time the parents realized what was happening, the boy only had three fingers left; two thumbs and a pinkie.
The father killed the ferret after seeing what it had done. “(I want) to know why the ferret was not locked up properly, secured, especially with an infant in the household,” Sharon Cannon of the Kansas City Ferret Hotline said. She’s not the only one. Because of the severity of the injuries, the Grain Valley Police Department and the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office are now investigating the case.Continue Reading

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – I don’t know which pisses me off more. Child abusers, or the women who allowed it. Well, maybe not allowed it, but through their lack of common sense, attributed to it. Case in point, Johnny Juliot and his girlfriend, Tara Hack. They met through a friend and although they had not known each other long, Juliot was already abusive towards her. But this did not stop her from letting Juliot watch her son, 4-year-old Tony Hack, because she says he was never violent towards the boy. When she arrived home on one of these occasions, she was greeted with Juliot carrying her son limp in his arms, blood coming from his mouth. They both took Tony the hospital and while there, Juliot left. Doctors told Hack her son’s skull fractures and bruising had come from getting the crap beat out of him, calling it the worst case of child abuse they’d ever seen. “He never showed signs of being mean at all to my child to my face, never.…Continue Reading

Lyons, NY — The constipated looking douchebag you see to the left is 30-year-old Aaron Iacono – his ugly mug is staring back at you today because police say he injured his 10-month-old daughter by holding her head and face under a running bathtub faucet on at least two separate occasions. Police allege that on November 30, Iacono held the baby girl’s head and face under a stream of cold water in the bathtub for approximately five minutes, causing her stomach to fill with water.

HAYDEN, Idaho -- A man has been charged with putting his 18-month-old stepdaughter in a storage room then placing a 25-pound bag of drink mix on her back so she couldn’t move. The girl was found whimpering in the storage room by 18-year-old Zacharee Wright’s father, who called police.

Tracy, CA — About two years ago, I posted a rather long-winded and heartbreaking story about a boy known only as Kyle – a 16-year-old boy who made headlines after escaping from a couple of monsters who kept him chained to their fireplace for more than a year. Long story short, Kyle appeared at the In-Shape City Sports Club on December 1, 2008, and asked club employees to hide him. He was emaciated, dirty, bruised and terrified. He had a 3-foot long chain clamped to his ankle. He kept repeating, “Hide me! They’re coming to get me! They’re coming to get me! Don’t let them get me!” Investigators learned the boy had been imprisoned and tortured by Kelly Lau, Michael Schumacher and neighbor, Anthony Waiters. Also charged, Kyle’s aunt, Caren Ramirez. Lau, Schumacher and Ramirez have all had their day in court and will more than likely spend at least 30 years behind bars after sentencing on December 6. Waiters was recently found guilty of multiple torture and abuse charges and is set to be sentenced on January 18.…Continue Reading
Father Charged In Baby’s Raccoon Attack After Investigation Reveals He Had Been Keeping Them As PetsNovember 23, 2010 at 9:20 am by Morbid
COVINGTON, Ga. – I shouldn’t take up a portion of this post by gloating about how I already knew that the raccoons that attacked a sleeping baby were probably family pets, but lookie there…I already did.
For those of you who are link impaired, police were called to a home earlier this month after a 9-month-old baby was attacked by two raccoons while it slept in its crib. One raccoon was shot and killed at the scene after it became aggressive towards responders, the other was captured and tested negative for rabies.
The infant would survive the severe bites to her head face and hands, but investigators were looking into whether the raccoons were wild or were pets. After the investigation was completed, it turns out the baby’s father, 35-year-old Michael Wayne Cannon, had taken the two raccoons in and had bottle fed them since June.
A month before the attack he had placed the pair outside in the backyard. Since then, the raccoons had been getting into the house through open windows and side panels of window air conditioning units.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – I was gonna wait to see if the parents of the toddler who fell five stories to his death were going to be charged before posting this, but it’s a slow news day. Shortly after the Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors at the Staples Center last night, 2-year-old Lucas Anthony Tang and member of his family were enjoying their time in their luxury sky box situated among the highest row of suites in the arena. His parents were looking at some digital photos they had just taken when they realized that Tang was no longer in the box with them. They, along with his 11-year-old sister, began looking for him only to find that Tang had managed to crawl over the glass safety barrier and had plunged 50-feet to the seating below. He would be rushed to the hospital but would die that night from severe head injuries. Police are now investigating, the case handed over to the juvenile division. A police spokeswoman said the investigation was standard in the death of a child and did not necessarily mean charges were currently being considered.…Continue Reading

McMINNVILLE, Ore.– Police have arrested four adults after a video of two 9-year-olds fighting was posted on Facebook. The video showed the two tots trading blows while the adults encouraged them on, even giving them tips on what to do to each other. “In the background, the adults are telling them to choke-out the other or do this or do that to increase the intensity of the attacks,” said Capt. Dennis Marks with the McMinnville Police Department. The fight ended after one of them got bit and the other was sporting a bloody nose.

Pittsburgh, PA — According to police, 42-year-old Karen Remsing decided to help herself to a dose of her terminally ill son’s pain medications this past Sunday. Remsing, a registered nurse, reportedly disconnected a computerized intravenous injection tube supplying Midazolam to her 15-year-old son, and filled several hypodermic needles stolen from a hospital supply cart before injecting herself with the sedative.

Fortunately, the potentially fatal air bubble did not enter her son’s body. When hospital personnel entered the room and found Remsing passed out on the couch with blood on her clothing and bloody hypos scattered about, they realized what was up and properly reconnected the boy’s IV.

Cincinnati, OH — A woman is facing felony charges after being arrested for allegedly giving pot to her three young kids, ages 7, 4, and 1. Valerie Cecil, 25, was charged with three counts of corruption with drugs after the 7-year-old told her counselor at school that she had been forced to smoke pot. Tests were performed on all three children and all were found to have marijuana in their system. While the test cannot determine if the pot got into their system through ingestion or contact, court documents filed by Officer Dana Jones say Cecil “did recklessly administer a controlled substance” on Sept. 1 to the three children. One of Cecil’s neighbors told reporters that she has also tried to give alcohol to underage kids in the apartment complex. This story completes the trifecta of brain dead, pot smoking mothers — the other two being the mom in the“bong baby” story and Jessica Gamble, the chick who recorded her 2-year-old smoking pot. Cecil was arrested and the released the same day on her own recognizance without posting any money.…Continue Reading

Irene told police the 2-year-old child fell in a bathtub filled with “lukewarm” water last Friday.

At the station, Irene reportedly told officers that the boy had had an accident in his pants made a mess, so she took him to the garage and washed him off in a basin – the water was apparently too hot. Investigators believe that is where she intentionally submerged the child in scalding water to teach him a lesson. The water temperature was reported to be at least 137 degrees.…Continue Reading
ALBUQUERQUE, NM — A mother has been arrested and charged with child abuse after her 2-year-old son was diagnosed with an STD. Police say that Amanda Lunsford, 26, would physically and emotionally abuse the boy, often leaving him alone with strange men or locked in a room so she could go out to party. She told investigators that the boy’s crying “would make me drink, and I would hit him.” Her sister-in-law also said that Lunsford told her that she often used Nyquil to shut the kid up, using three bottles in two months. Police believe the abuse happened earlier this year while the mother was living with her half sister in Albuquerque.
