Competitive Eating Contests Leave Two Dead

April 4, 2017 at 3:03 am by  

CT & CO — Two separate eating competitions, in two different states, have led to the death of two contestants. Yay for twofers?!

In the first story, we focus on a 20-year-old coed named Caitlin Nelson….

Nelson, pictured here, was taking part in a pancake eating competition at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut Thursday, when, after scarfing down about 4 or 5 pancakes, she began choking.

First responders attempted to clear her airway but to no avail. Nelson was transported to the hospital, where she died Sunday.

It was initially believed that Nelson suffered anaphylactic shock, due to several food allergies, but it has since been revealed that food allergies did not contribute to her death.

Meanwhile, in Colorado….

Travis Malouff, 42, was trying to polish off a half pound donut *drools* in under 80 seconds at a competition hosted by Voodoo Doughnut on Sunday, when he began choking.

The Heimlich maneuver was obviously unsuccessful — the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed Monday that Malouff died from “asphyxia, due to obstruction of the airway.”

Haven’t had your fill?…

Christopher AndrewsFAIRFIELD, CT – Police fatally shot Christopher Andrews Tuesday morning after the 51-year-old lost his damn mind and attacked his family with a baseball bat.

Police were called to the home early Tuesday morning after a young female inside the home called to report a domestic incident.

When police arrived on the scene they were confronted by Andrews, a partner at Manhattan law firm Andrews and Andrews, who was armed with a knife. An officer shot and killed Andrews when he refused to listen to commands.

“We actually came to the home and one of our officers was immediately confronted by an individual who would not comply with any demands to stay where he was,” said Lt. James Perez, Fairfield police. “That individual made a lunge at our officer, our officer in self-defense, fired.”

Inside the home, police would find Andrews’ family members in various rooms suffering from a myriad of beating and stabbing injuries.

According to reports, Andrews first attacked his wife and inflicted severe stab and blunt force wounds to her face.…

Kyle Damato-KushelBRIDGEPORT, CT — Kyle Damato-Kushel has been charged after the 45-year-old teacher’s aide got caught by her husband having sex with a 15-year-old boy.

Damato-Kushel’s husband thought intruders were in his house the other night and called police. Turned out it wasn’t burglars, but rather his wife shagging a 15-year-old boy she once taught in pre-school.

Despite Damato-Kushel offering the boy $900 to keep his mouth shut, the teen spiiled the beans – telling police he had been having sex with Damato-Kushel since 2013, when he was in seventh-grade.

He said the first time they had sex was in her husband’s “man cave” and that by the end of their run, they’d had sex in other rooms of the house and at various places around Stratford. He said that during that time, Damato-Kushel was pregnant with his baby but had a miscarriage.

Damato-Kushel is going to have a hard time getting out of this one, especially since police say her DNA was found in the boy’s underwear. She’s been charged with second-degree sexual assault, impairing the morals of a child and tampering with a witness.…

connecticut mud ladyWINDSOR LOCKS, CT – A delusional woman, naked and covered in feces, was restrained in a Subway restroom after running from a Connecticut motel room carrying a small dog.

Last Thursday, police responded to a Windsor Locks Motel 6 on a report of a woman acting erratically. Once they got to the scene, they found the unidentified woman had stripped naked and had smeared shit all over her body and inside the room.

When the woman opened the door and saw the cops standing there, she tried slamming it shut before running out of the room while screaming “shoot me, shoot me” at the officers. They didn’t, and the dog carrying dookie-cicle ran inside a nearby Subway were she locked herself in the restroom.

Police tried to talk her out of the restroom but ultimately had to force their way inside and find the woman still holding her dog and violently kicking and flailing. She was reportedly delusional and incoherent, repeatedly asked officers to shoot her, and had the small dog’s body squeezed between her legs.…

James McLambSTAMFORD, CT – A 15-year-old boy and 22-year-old James McLamb have been charged with murder after the teen stabbed 52-year-old Antonio Muralles to death because he accidentally spilled coffee on them.

Muralles was exiting the McDonald’s on Bedford Street with a cup of coffee last week, when he bumped into the teen and accidentally spilled coffee on him.

Words were exchanged and the two suspects began to taunt Muralles and hit him with a stick before the teen pulled out a knife and stabbed Muralles.

“Without warning, he was viciously attacked and stabbed through the heart,” Capt. Richard Conklin said during a news conference. “A very heinous, tragic incident.”

Muralles collapsed on the sidewalk and was rushed to the hospital, but would die from his injuries after undergoing emergency surgery.

With the help of a narcotics informant, surveillance cameras, and members of the public that witnessed the incident, investigators were able to quickly identify three suspects.

Police would learn that McLamb, was already in custody in New Haven on an unrelated weapons charge.…

James PolkEAST WINDSOR, CT – James Polk, 43, has been accused of brutally raping a stripper then slitting his own throat when confronted by police.

At around 3:00 am Thursday morning, police received a 911 hangup call from a woman who seemed to be in medical distress. The number was traced to a land-line phone at Power Service Concepts, a company Polk manages.

When officers arrived, they interrupted Polk in the middle of brutally raping an exotic dancer he had picked up at the Mardi Gras II strip club.

The woman was able to run to police while Polk was held at gunpoint. Polk told the officers that he had a knife and that they were going to have to kill him. Just before police Tased him, Polk produced the knife and slit his own throat.

Both Polk and his victim were rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, Polk either needs a better knife or more moxie, as he is expected to survive his self-inflicted injury. He’s currently in intensive care under police guard.…

Emily FedorkoGREENWICH, CT – A day of fun on the Long Island Sound turned horrific when a popular teen was killed after being caught in a speed boat propeller.

The incident happened on Wednesday as 16-year-old Emily Fedorko and three of her friends were tubing in the waters off Greenwich Point Park.

Fedorko and a 15-year-old girl were both riding in a tube that was being pulled by a motor boat driven by a 16-year-old girl and a 16-year-old female passenger. It was after Fedorko and the girl riding with her were thrown off the tube that the accident occurred.

“At some point some of the maneuvers that took place with the boat and the tubes, the vessel slowed or stopped. The girls’ tube continued forward and they became entangled in the propeller,” said Greenwich Police’s Lt. Kraig Gray. Yikes.

Fedorko suffered a laceration to her torso from the propeller that was so bad that responding emergency personnel were unable to even attempt resuscitation. She was pronounced dead at the scene. …

Leonel RodriguezSTAMFORD, CT – Police have arrested 39-year-old Leonel Rodriguez after they say he raped his 12-year-old daughter and got her pregnant.

On July 17, the girl’s mother took her to the doctor when she began complaining about cramps. It was soon revealed that the 12-year-old was preggers. The doctor notified the state Department of Children and Families, but the girl would not tell them who had knocked her up.

However, the girl did confide in a relative the next day, telling them that the father of her baby was also the baby’s grandfather. She told her aunt that her father had sexually abused her on several occasions and was the one who got her pregnant.

The relative called police, who immediately took Rodriguez into custody. They could only hold him for 48 hours, so police decided to interview the girl – along with her mother and her aunt – in hopes of getting her to repeat her statements.

They must have gotten the information they needed from the girl, because an arrest warrant was issued for Rodriguez on charges of sexual assault in the first degree and risk of injury to a minor.…

Carmine CervellinoThomaston, CT — Carmine Cervellino, 49, was arrested last week after his wife told police he stabbed a watermelon in a manner she perceived as “threatening.”

It all started on July 4, when Cervellino’s wife contacted police after finding a toolbox in their home with marijuana and an assortment of pills hidden inside. She told police she snatched the drugs and took photos of the items with her cell phone before stashing them in her bedroom.

When police arrived at the couple’s home, the toolbox and the alleged drug stash were nowhere to be found. The woman’s pictures weren’t going to be enough to make a case, so no arrest was made.

Later that day, the woman claims, she returned home to find a watermelon on the kitchen counter with a butcher knife sticking out of it. Just moments later, she said, her husband walked into the kitchen and, without saying a word, began carving the melon in what she called a passive-aggressive and menacing manner. She whipped out her cell phone again and took pictures of the knife, which she later showed to police.…

piss mopMIDDLETOWN, CT – Middletown police have arrested a 22-year-old Charles Stack after they said he emptied a container of urine on a female housemate.

Police said Stack and the woman live in the same building and that Stack went to the woman’s room last week with a container full of urine.

When the woman opened her door, Stack emptied the container o’ piss on her, covering her clothing, body, face and room.

Sounds like Stack had been saving up for this occasion, and possibly doubling down on the asparagus intake, because police reported the room was covered with an “extremely large quantity” of urine that had an “extremely strong odor.”

The woman told police that Stack has never liked her and often curses at her. She also said Stack once threatened to kick her in the head. Police tried to talk to Stack, but he’d locked himself in his bedroom.

After the landlord unlocked the door, police found Stack on his bed with a sheet pulled up over his head.…

John DeweesENFIELD, CT — Police say 49-year-old John Dewees Jr. got tired of changing his sick wife’s diaper so he beat her to death after she soiled herself again.

On May 22, one of John’s’ neighbors called police to report that John had came by and told him that his wife, 45-year-old Anja Dewees, was dead inside his home. When police arrived, Anja’s body was found on the bedroom floor wrapped in plastic.

John initially told police that he’d killed his wife after he dropped her in the bathtub while giving her a bath. Anja was suffering from liver disease and was bedridden, so he was responsible for the cooking and cleaning, as well as bathing his wife and changing her diaper.

But the medical examiner’s report showed that Anja suffered more than an injury resulting from a simple fall in the bathtub. She had a large bruise on back of her head, blood coming from her right ear, a cut over her right eye and numerous bruises over her body.

Presented with these facts, John eventually told the whole truth.…

Michael LueckeStamford, CT — A substitute teacher at Westhill High School accused of tuggin’ his slug while eyeballing students on campus earlier this week, claims was really just adjusting his pants.

A staff member at the school told police she was walking in an area of lockers just after 7:30 Wednesday morning, when she spotted Michael Luecke lying on the ground. Believing the man had been hurt, the woman approached… only to find him with his hand in his pants and his eyeballs all rolled back in his head. And, she told police, he was “manipulating his penis.” *insert GASP here*

The woman reportedly told Luecke that his behavior was inappropriate, to which Luecke reportedly said something along the lines of, “I need to find somewhere else to do this.”

When the staff member informed Luecke that he shouldn’t be anywhere near children, Luecke relayed that such a thing had never happened to him before. The woman then reported the alleged incident to school officials and Luecke was immediately removed from the classroom he was overseeing and sent to the principal’s office.…

Banana thiefNewington, CT — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man accused of ramming his car into a convenience store and making off with a single banana.

Surveillance video shows a Ford Freestyle with Connecticut license plates backing repeatedly into the store and breaking the glass doors, setting off the burglar alarm, at about 2:00 Thursday morning.

Once the man was inside, he apparently swiped a lone banana off a shelf and devoured it before leaving the store.

Police say nothing else was taken.

The car apparently sustained damage to the driver side rear bumper and tail light.

If you recognize this banana loving, station wagon driving doofus, please contact the Newington Police Department at (860) 666-8445.

Why, yes, it is a slow news day…. why do you ask?…

pit bullWILTON, CT – A 56-year-old woman is the hospital after her pit bull attacked and proceeded to entirely remove one of her arms and partially remove the other. She was rescued by passing motorists who heard her screaming for help from underneath her car.

Anne Murray is in stable condition despite losing one arm, a portion of her other arm below the elbow, and bites from her legs up to the side of her head. She can thank two Good Samaritans for her life, as they were the ones who stopped because they saw the pit bull wandering in the road.

Thinking they were helping the dog, the first motorist who stopped to help corral the dog back in its yard got back inside her car when the dog began acting aggressive towards her. A second motorist who had stopped to help heard screams for help coming from underneath a car in the home’s driveway, and called 911 for help.

The arriving police officer witnessed Murray under the car trying to fend off the dog – a two-year-old male named Tuxedo.…

Robert ChestersLEBANON, CT – A widowed father of three is behind bars after being accused of drugging his 12-year-old daughter so he could have sex with her 12-year-old friend during sleepovers.

The relationship between 42-year-old Robert Chesters and his daughter’s friend was discovered after the girl’s friends found sex-related text messages on her phone and alerted a guidance counselor at their middle school. The messages found are as disgusting as they are cringe-inducing.

“I love you so much and I am glad I love you so much as I do sometimes I wish I didn’t love you as much as I do so I would not worry about you leaving,” Chesters texted the girl. “You told me to trust you and I am but admittedly I do get worried you will find somebody much better and much better looking and obviously younger and I cannot wait to see you tonight as my girlfriend/lover either. Bob.”

Other texts seem to back up the girl’s claims that Chesters was drugging his daughter so that they could have their sexual encounters without being caught. …

Paula MontanezDANBURY, CT – A couple in Connecticut are in jail after investigators said they forced a 9-year-old girl to bark while wearing an electric dog collar as punishment for a bad progress report from school.

Eduardo and Paula Montanez were arrested after the girl told her teacher she was having problems at home, then described the electric dog collar incident. She said her stepfather and mother were upset about her progress report, so Eduardo put a PetSafe barking collar around her neck and made her bark so she would get shocked. Her mother was there when this happened, she said, but did nothing to stop it.

The girl said it only happened once, but marks on the girl’s neck lead investigators to believe that the shock treatment was a common method of punishment used in the home. The girl also told police that she’d been beaten by her parents several times. After a joint investigation between Department of Children and Families and Danbury police, the couple were arrested five days later.…

girl bullySTAMFORD, CT – Police in Connecticut have arrested a 12-year-old girl after they say she was relentlessly bullying another student at a private middle school in Stamford.

The parents of a 13-year-old girl went to police after their daughter told them she was being bullied at school by the 12-year-old, who constantly taunted and harassed her. Even after making the complaint to police, the bullying continued and even intensified.

The bullying got so bad that the victim spoke about killing herself, prompting school administrators to work with police and investigate the bullying claims. This lead to police arresting the bully and charging her with disorderly conduct.

“This behavior will not be tolerated,” Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin said. “If it is brought to our attention, we will vigorously investigate the allegations and make arrests when appropriate. We investigate all claims of bullying, and this type of behavior will not be condoned in a learning environment.”

Some residents think that arresting the girl, who was later released to her parents, is a bit drastic.…

Michael DeMaioGreenwich, CT – A man told police he “lost it” when he bashed his wife’s skull in with a baseball bat inside their mansion after learning she was leaving him.

Police responded to the $7.3 million estate of Michael and Diane DeMaio on Tuesday after receiving a report of a domestic situation with injuries. Once inside, they found Diane, 54, laying in a pool of blood inside a large closet with three ice packs placed under her badly disfigured head.

“What, hello, what’s going on,” she said before closing her eyes. Police tried to put pressure to a large gash on her head, “but felt it was soft”.

Also in the home was Diane’s elderly mother, Gloria Sica, who was screaming that Michael had attacked her daughter. “That monster hit her and she’s dying,” she screamed. An officer drew his gun on Michael and placed him in custody. The 55-year-old would confess to using a baseball bat to bash his wife’s head in.

“I lost it, I just lost it,” he told the officers as he lay handcuffed on the ground, explaining he became enraged shortly after learning his wife was leaving him.…
