PLEASANT GROVE, UT - Police in Utah have arrested 39-year-old Megan Huntsman on suspicion of six counts of murder after it was discovered she’d been using her garage as form of dead baby storage.
On Saturday morning, Huntsman’s ex-husband, Darren West, called police after finding “a suspicious package with a pungent smell.” When he opened it, he was shocked to find the body of a full-term baby. When police arrived, they performed a search inside the garage and found six more infants in separate cardboard boxes.
West had just recently been released from prison after serving a nine year sentence on a drug distribution conviction. His parents owned the home and he’d been there with his family on Saturday to clean it up so he could move back in with his three daughters.
Huntsman had not lived in the home since 2011, having moved out due to a struggle with substance abuse. When she was located and questioned by police, she was fully cooperative and admitted to giving birth to the infants between 1996 and 2006 – before her husband had went to prison.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Demetrio Campbell has been accused of kicking in the door of a home and then raping a 4-year-old girl inside.
The 27-year-old convicted felon reportedly tried luring the girl and her older sister as they played outside, but the girls ran inside their home and locked the door behind them.
Campbell wasn’t letting a door stand in the way of some child rape, so he kicked in the door. Once inside, he instructed two older people in the home to leave, which they did. Campbell then took the 4-year-old into a bedroom and raped her.
One of the people Campbell ordered out of the home notified police, who found the victim in her bedroom and Campbell in the bedroom’s closet smoking a cigarette. He was arrested and charged with predatory criminal sexual assault and home invasion.
Campbell has past convictions for residential burglary and aggravated robbery. His most recent conviction was in 2008 in which he was sentenced to four years in prison. On Wednesday, Judge Edward Bowden ordered Campbell held without bond and also ordered Campbell to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.…Continue Reading
Last month I reported on 27-year-old Andrew Ward after he was arrested and accused of stabbing his 12-year-old half brother to death for no reason other than he “just felt like killing.”
For the last three weeks, Ward has been in custody at Maricopa County jail while awaiting his trial. His cellmate during this time was 33-year-old Douglas Walker, who was serving a few years for armed robbery.
On Wednesday night, inmates alerted guards that the two men were fighting. When they made their way inside the two men’s cell, officials would find Walker dead after Ward turned his head into a bit of psychotic performance art.
According to officials, Ward used a golf pencil to stab Walker in the eyes, used a playing card to slit Walker’s throat, smeared peanut butter on his head and shoved a plastic bag down Walker’s throat.…Continue Reading
Steamboat Springs, CO – An idiot is facing some serious charges after she left her 3-year-old son home alone for 20 hours and returned home to find him dead.
Megan McKeon, 24, was in the habit of leaving her young son, Austin Davis, home alone inside her small cabin at a local campground while she went to work. According to police, she admitted having done this at least 20 times before with no issues.
But on March 26, she left Austin home alone while she went to work her job at a grocery store. She figured he would be fine as she’d left him with food, juice and a movie playing. Instead of returning home after her shift was over, she returned home the following morning after spending the night at her boyfriend’s house.
She returned home to find Austin dead, lying face up with his eyes wide open. An official cause of death for the boy has not been revealed at this point, but a doctor who tried to save Austin’s life believes the boy may have accidentally poisoned himself with prescription medication or other substances.…Continue Reading
StPetersburg, FL – A desk clerk at an apartment complex thought the body of a 96-year-old woman found in the parking lot was an April Fool’s prank, so he tossed her body in a dumpster.
While taking a smoke break, 61-year-old Ronald Benjamin noticed the woman’s body lying in the parking lot. Thinking it was a mannequin placed there as an April Fool’s prank, Benjamin finished his cigarette and returned to his desk.
What he did not know was the body was not a prank. The body belonged to a 96-year-old woman who had been suffering from depression and had jumped to her death from the 16th floor.
A couple hours later, at around 6:30 a.m., another employee saw the woman’s body and told Benjamin about it. He told her not to worry, explaining to her that it was just a prank. A mannequin probably placed there by some drunks after the bars closed.
When a teen stopped by to deliver the paper, Benjamin asked him if would help dispose of the mannequin.…Continue Reading
Edinburgh – On Tuesday, 12-year-old Keane Wallis-Bennett was killed when an internal wall inside the gym at Liberton High School collapsed on top of her.
Keane suffered major upper-body injuries when a wall next to the showers in the gym collapsed on top of her as she changed for PE. Witnesses stated she screamed that she could hear something falling, but she was unable to get out of the way.
Staff and emergency services were unable to save her and Keane was pronounced dead at the scene. Police and health and safety officials have began investigating the circumstances surrounding Keane’s death and how the wall, built as a partition, collapsed.
The school had been surveyed by Edinburgh City Council and found to need ‘significant’ work. The local authorities did not have the money needed to fix all the problems found with all of their schools at once, so they adopted a “prioritization” scheme. This led to Liberton High being placed behind other schools needing work.
The wall that collapsed was not identified as a problem when the school was surveyed, but students said the wall had been “wobbly” for months and that they’d warned teachers about it.…Continue Reading

Dorothy Hamilton was found by her son on Monday, lying in a pool of blood on her living room floor with two aggressive pit bulls next to her. The two dogs were owned by Hamilton’s son that he’d been keeping locked in a bedroom for several months.
Police say there is evidence that the dogs broke through the bedroom door before attacking and killing Dorothy.
Some neighbors say that the dogs were aggressive and that they’d had run-ins with them in the past. “One of those pit bulls charged all the way down the road to where that truck is at me and my dog. That’s been about two years ago and I haven’t walked since. It was very frightening,” said Emma Glenn.
Both of the pit bulls, along with six pit bulls being kept outside the home, were taken to a Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department facility.…Continue Reading
HOLMES COUNTY, MS – Authorities have identified the 3-year-old boy who was mauled to death by two pit bulls on Monday afternoon, as Christopher Malone.
The two pit bulls are kept outside in a chain-link dog pen, but somehow were able to break out of the enclosure and attack the toddler as he was outside playing.
“The dog just jumped him and took him down and drugged him in the back and killed him, ate him up,” said Lucy Mayze, Malone’s aunt.
The boy’s mother noticed Malone was not in the mobile home playing with other children and went outside to look for him. She found him being mauled by the family’s two pit bulls in the back yard. When she tried to intervene, she was attacked as well.
Family members say they’ve owned the dogs since they were puppies, and that they have been around children their entire lives and have never been violent. “They never been no real viscous dog they never bit nobody they never jumped on nobody around here,” said Mayze.…Continue Reading
SAN DIEGO, CA — Police in California shot and killed three pit bulls after they went on a rampage in a quiet neighborhood Tuesday morning and and attacked three people.
At around 8:30 a.m. yesterday morning, a 78-year-old Edgardo Manimtim was attacked by the dogs after he went outside to get his newspaper. “I fell down and they made a steak out of me,” said Manimtim.
Luckily, Manimtim was able to fight the dogs off but suffered bites to his face, legs and and arms in the process. The dogs then turned their attention on 60-year-old Norma Williams, who was walking to church.
The pit bulls surrounded her and started attacking, ripping her pants and biting her ankle. She managed to fend them off with an umbrella and got away by scaling a neighbor’s fence. Then the dogs attacked 19-year-old Michael Ward, a teenager who stepped outside of his home to see what Williams was yelling about.
“She was trying to get away from three large pit bulls,” Ward said.…Continue Reading
Chelsea, OK – A couple in Oklahoma have been accused of abusing two of their children, and keeping a 4-year-old boy locked in a dog cage for as long as 14 hours a day.
On Oct. 13, a social worker paid a visit to the home of 33-year-old Suzanne Satterfield and 31-year-old Johnathon Lee. The visit must have been unannounced, because when the worker walked into the residence, she found the couple’s 4-year-old son locked inside a small dog cage.
Police were called and the couple were taken into custody. During their interview with police, they explained that they locked the boy in the cage as a form of discipline and to keep him from harming himself. They estimated they kept the boy locked in the cage as long as 14 hours a day.
Lee told the police the boy would get up at night and there were exposed wires in the bedroom that he was afraid the boy may electrocute himself. He figured it was a hell of a lot easier to stick the kid in a cage than it was to fix the electrical issue.…Continue Reading
City of Beacon, NJ – Police arrested 33-year-old Edwina Negron on Wednesday after they, and other witnesses, watched as she repeatedly threw her infant daughter onto the ground.
Police were called to the intersection of Verplanck Avenue and Willow Street after witnesses described watching Negron twice throwing her 8-month-old daughter to the ground.

SPARTANBURG, SC - A couple were arrested after a man was accused of hitting his girlfriend with his anger management book and she was accused of stabbing him with a boxcutter.
Police were called to a home Monday night on a domestic disturbance call and found 23-year-old Tyler Ford suffering from a deep cut on his forearm while his girlfriend, 22-year-old Sheelah Thompson, had a bump on her forehead.
Thompson told police that she and Ford got into an argument over their relationship while watching a movie. Thompson said her boyfriend strangled her, hit her with his rolled up anger management book and threatened to kill her.
She added that Ford put her phone in the oven to prevent her from calling for help and “popped” their infant daughter on the legs because she was crying.
Ford’s story was a little different and painted Thompson as the instigator of the argument, as well as the winner of the fight that ensued. He claimed the argument started after he began asking Thompson why she purposely tries to anger him, knowing he takes anger management classes.…Continue Reading
