WAUKESHA, WI – I usually hold off on posting missing kid stories because they always seem to be found, alive or dead, before I even get them typed up. But Waukesha officials are asking for the public’s help in finding 15-year-old Kathryn Stalbaum, a freshman at Kettle Moraine High School who was last seen early Tuesday morning.
Stalbaum was last seen around 6:15 a.m. at her home in Town of Genesee. She missed the bus to school that morning and texted a friend to let them know she would ride her bike to school. She never made it there, and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
“Kathryn has not an individual that has a history of running away. Her family has a good, close relationship with her, where she maintains contact, so the fact that she’s been gone for the time frame that she has is unusual,” Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department Inspector Eric Severson said.
Stalbaum is about 5’7”, 120 pounds, has long brown hair, blue eyes, has braces and wears contacts.…Continue Reading
HANCOCK COUNTY, MS - A Mississippi woman was arrested after she allegedly tried selling her 4-month-old baby boy to a woman in Louisiana she met over Craigslist.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department say they were contacted after 23-year-old Bobbie Stojic posted an ‘In Search of’ on Craigslist for baby clothes. A woman in Louisiana contacted her and the two women formed a relationship and began texting each other.
The woman in Louisiana said that after Stojic gave her a sob story about financial difficulties and possibly being evicted from her home, she offered to help care for Stojic’s 4-month-old. Stojic had a better idea, and texted the woman: “Well, for $5,000 you can have the child. Come and get him.”
The woman was interested, but replied that if Stojic wanted to relinquish her parental rights, they would need to go through the legal adoption process. Again, Stojic had a better idea and replied that there was no need for all that red tape, and that the woman could put the baby on layaway – $600 now, and then work out the remaining balance later.…Continue Reading
KERNERSVILLE, NC - A 25-year-old woman was mauled to death by her boyfriend’s two pit bulls while trying to feed them.
According to the sheriff’s office, Katherine Atkins was feeding the dogs in an outdoor enclosure because her boyfriend, Albert Jacobs, was running late for work. Jacobs’ roommate called police after he found Atkins lying dead in the backyard near the dogs’ enclosure while the dogs ran loose.
No one knows why the dogs attacked the woman, especially since Atkins regularly fed the dogs and the couple had raised them since they were puppies. Investigators said there is “no history of problems or aggression” with the dogs.
Animal control took both dogs into custody and euthanized them. A necropsy will be performed to determine if a medical condition may have caused them to turn on Atkins. However, Forsyth County Animal Control Director Tim Jennings say they may never know why the male and female pit bulls attacked Atkins.
“People always need to remember their DNA is programmed to be aggressive,” said Jennings.…Continue Reading
FORT WORTH, TX — The 13-year-old who used a bowling ball to kill a 5-year-old boy pleaded guilty to capital murder this morning in exchange for 23 years behind bars.
The trial for the unidentified teen, now 14-years-old, was scheduled to start this morning, but prosecutors were able to reach a deal with the teen’s lawyers.
Back in June, Sida Oswan went missing after going out to ride his bike. Within 24 hours, his dead body was discovered inside a fenced backyard of a vacant house. A day later, the teen was arrested on suspicion of the boy’s murder.
He was identified after two teens told police that they found the suspect crying and that he took them to see Sida’s body while admitting that he’d killed the boy. After he was taken into custody, it was revealed that the teen used a bowling ball to strike Sida in the head multiple times.
The teen told police that he was angry with Sida because the boy kept “pestering” him about taking him to the store.…Continue Reading
Clarks Summit, PA - Investigators are still trying to figure out what motivated a 42-year-old nurse to kill a 79-year-old nursing-home patient before killing herself.
Police said that at around 5:30 p.m. Monday, employees at Abington Manor entered a patient’s room to find the patient, Howard Kinney, dead from a gunshot wound to the chest. Also in the room was one of their nurses, Aimee Larkin, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Their deaths are now being ruled a murder-suicide, police stating that Larkin used a Sig Sauer P245 she got last Christmas to kill herself after she killed Kinney. You bastard.
What they are now trying to determine is why Larkin killed Kinney a little over an hour into her shift. There was no note left behind, and the relationship between Larkin and Kinney is unknown. Neither of them exhibited any unusual behavior before the incident.
Larkin has worked for the facility since 2011, while Kinney had been living there for the past two years while undergoing cancer treatment. According to Kinney’s nephew, he was in remission at the time of his death.…Continue Reading
BARRIE, Ont. — It’s been awhile since we’ve had anything worth reporting out of Canada, but when we do, you can count on it being pretty messed up. In this case, three friends are facing a cornucopia of sex-related charges that include child pornography and bestiality.
Shayne Lund, 22, is facing 110 charges, including counselling and conspiring to kidnap a child, making and selling child pornography, invitation to sexual touching, voyeurism, sexual assault and bestiality.
His two friends, 19-year-old Kathryn Thompson and 20-year-old Avery Taylor, are each facing 16 charges that include child pornography and bestiality.
What exactly this trio has been up to has not been revealed in detail, but investigators say they have identified at least five child victims between the ages of two and 10. Comments from some people close to the case will have you imagining the unimaginable.
One woman told police that her 5-year-old daughter is one of the alleged victims, and that she often used Taylor as a babysitter. She said she was horrified to learn that her child has been sexually abused and that pictures of the abuse may be circulating the Internet.…Continue Reading
STLOUIS, MO – A father in Missouri has been accused of posting an online ad looking for someone to help beat and rape his 11-year-old daughter.
Police were notified about the ad and had an undercover officer make contact with 32-year-old Anthony Brinkman. Beleiving he was talking with a 27-year-old female with an interest in books, walks on the beach, and pedophilia, Brinkman told her he wanted her to be his girlfriend and to help him sexually assault his daughter.
The undercover officer and Brinkman agreed to meet at a Cracker Barrel restaurant and, if they all got along, return to Brinkman’s home and rape his daughter with sex toys. Personally, I prefer another cup of coffee after a Momma’s Pancake Breakfast.
Investigators didn’t think Brinkman would actually show up, but to their surprise, Brinkman arrived and had brought his daughter along with him.
“It’s just a lot of talk for most of these guys, but this guy actually brought (the girl) to the scene to go ahead with the next step of enacting it,” said St.…Continue Reading
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA — A man burned to death at the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval after his costume caught fire.
At around 10:25 p.m. Thursday, 51-year-old Gilbert Estrada was attending the party with his girlfriend and his brother as he does every year. Estrada was dressed as a military sniper and for reasons still unclear, his costume catches on fire.
As he runs around in circles trying not be on fire, other party-goers danced and cheered, not realizing the seriousness of the situation.
“So many people were drunk and partying,” said a witness. “People were chanting, clapping, filming and taking pictures like it was some kind of cool, funny thing and not realizing it was a guy who was suffering in a really bad condition.”
You can watch the 1-minute, 41-second video below, and while it doesn’t show how the fire started, it does show Estrada running around trying to extinguish the flames while a bunch of morons dance around and cheer, or remark how they got that shit on video.…Continue Reading
Police say the victim was listening to music and watching TV at her friend’s house when she was approached by a group of teens who told her she had to have sex with 19-year-old Jayvon Woolfork, or get her ass kicked. She chose to get her ass kicked, which she did, but still ended up having to have sex with Woodfork.
The victim said after she refused, she was attacked by the group, including her friend. She was kicked, had her hair pulled, was thrown down stairs, and had the bones around her eyes broken when her face was smashed into concrete.
Afterwards, she said she was dragged into a bedroom where Woodfork raped her while 18-year-old Lanel Singleton and three minors – a 17-year-old male, 15-year-old female and a 14-year-old girl - held her down.
The victim spent several days in the hospital recovering from her injuries, while all five of the accused were eventually arrested and charged with sexual assault and kidnapping.…Continue Reading
SAN ANTONIO, TX – A man has been accused of severely beating a woman with a clothes iron after she gave him a ride.
I know that when compared to other stories on this site, this is small potatoes. But I had to get this one posted because of what the accused allegedly did after he started beating his victim.
According to the 27-year-old victim, 42-year-old Colin Ryan called her because he needed a ride to the store. Ryan was currently staying at a Super 8 motel, and the victim said she’d given Ryan a ride the day before at the urging of her aunt.
After picking Ryan up and returning back from the store, the victim told police that Ryan offered to give her gas money and told her to come inside his motel room to get it.
Not long after she entered Ryan’s room, the victim said Ryan acted like he didn’t know who she was, or why she was there, and began beating her with his fists and a clothes iron.…Continue Reading
BALTIMORE, MD – A woman who fought to have her pit bull returned after an attack last year, was mauled to death by that same pit bull after she fell out of her wheelchair.
According to reports, 56-year-old Terry Douglass suffered from cerebral palsy and has used a wheelchair for the last two years. On Friday, she fell out of her wheelchair while reaching for a glass of water. While on the ground, her 4-year-old pit bull “Boosie” attacked her and, according to Douglass’ daughter, “ripped her apart.”
Family members say Douglass was never known as a dog lover, but quickly grew attached to Boosie, a dog Douglass initially bought for protection. “My mom had gotten to a point in her life when she felt like her kids didn’t need her any more, and she latched onto this dog,” said Douglass’ daughter, Tamathia Davis.
Davis said that two years ago, Boosie bit Douglass’ face so bad that “whenever my mom would open her mouth, her cheek would open with it.” But Douglas defended the dog and refused to get rid of it. …Continue Reading
AURORA, CO - A 26-year-old man in Colorado is behind bars after police say he kidnapped an 8-year-old girl from her bedroom window last week.
Police say last Monday, at around midnight, John Snorsky Jr. removed a screen from the bedroom window of an 8-year-old girl and then pulled the girl out of her house. The girl struggled and screamed as she was carried into an alley behind her home. She was able to escape and run to her father who had been woken up by his daughter’s cries for help.
Snorsky fled the scene when the girl’s father tried confronting him, but between the father noticing a newer model Mercedes in the area that night, along with the girl’s description of the man who kidnapped her, police were able to quickly identify Snorsky as a possible suspect. Within hours, he was arrested on an unrelated felony parole violation. Turns out Snorsky was already in some trouble after giving a false report to a pawn broker back in September.
On Friday, detectives say they’d gathered enough evidence to charge Snorsky with first- and second-degree burglary and second-degree kidnapping.…Continue Reading
ORANGE CITY, IA – A daycare worker has been accused of killing a 3-year-old girl because the toddler would not remove her coat.
Autumn Elgersma died on Halloween, two days after being admitted to the hospital suffering from a head injury she received at her daycare. According to 33-year-old Rochelle Sapp, the owner and operator of the in-home daycare, Autumn had fallen down some stairs shortly after being dropped off Tuesday morning.
After receiving a call from Sapp about her daughter’s accident, Jennifer Elgersma took Autumn from Sapp’s home and rushed her to the hospital where doctors discovered the little girl had a fractured skull and brain trauma. When Sapp was presented with evidence that Autumn’s injuries were not consistent with a fall down down some stairs, Sapp admitted she’d thrown the girl to the floor after she refused to take off her coat.
Sapp was arrested and initially charged with willful injury and child endangerment resulting in serious bodily injury. Since Autumn died from the injuries inflicted on her by Sapp, those charges will be upgraded as soon as the girl’s autopsy is completed, according to Orange City Police Chief Jim Pottebaum.…Continue Reading
CLARKSVILLE, GA – A man in Georgia will face criminal charges after he accidentally set his wife on fire at a gas station while refueling his pickup truck.
Security footage from a Clarksville gas station shows 37-year-old Austin Dawkins pumping gas while talking to his 30-year-old wife, Jessica Dawkins. For some inexplicable reason, Austin ignites a cigarette lighter and then lowers his hand towards his truck’s gas tank.
No surprise to anyone with a functioning brain, the gas fumes immediately ignited and set the truck on fire. Jessica might have walked away from this unharmed, but her idiot husband made matters worse by removing the flaming gas nozzle from his truck.
As you can see in the following video, Jessica is hauling ass away from the truck when Austin decides to point the flame-spewing nozzle in his wife’s direction, dousing her with a hefty dose of Liquid Hell. Jessica is last seen running out of the camera’s view, clearly on fire. She did not die, but did suffer second- and third-degree burns to her legs, arms, back and head.…Continue Reading
LAKE WORTH, FL – A self-described sadomasochist is facing some sexual assault charges after she went a little too far with her girlfriend, allegedly beating and choking her while also raping her with a marital aid.
The 53-year-old victim contacted police on October 25 to report that her girlfriend of nine months, 23-year-old Mia McCarthy, had attacked her the day before. A detective met the victim at a sexual assault care center where the victim was sporting bruises, bite marks and scratches on her neck.
The victim told the detective that she’d gotten into an argument with McCarthy that had turned physical. She said that McCarthy had punched and scratched her before choking her to the point that she saw spots and almost passed out. The victim said that’s around the time McCarthy gave her some helpful advice that I will have to remember for my next Backpage date:
“Breathe or I’ll kill you,” McCarthy reportedly threatened.
She went on to describe an earlier incident that happened back in July.…Continue Reading
KENOSHA, WI – A drunk man dressed as a clown has been accused of dangling a boy over a railroad overpass early Sunday morning.
According to police, 33-year-old Antonio Brown came home drunk after attending a Halloween party Saturday night. Still dressed as a clown, he told his girlfriend’s two kids that he wanted to go walk the train tracks, something they had all done before.
As he and the two boys – ages 13 and 8 – walked along the tracks, Brown continued drinking alcohol. The boys said Brown was “acting strange” and ended up making them drink the alcohol to the point that one of the boys threw up.
When the younger of the two boys got scared and wanted to go home, Brown got angry. The two boys took off running with Brown in hot pursuit. Brown caught up to the older boy, grabbed him, picked him up and hung him upside down from an overpass. “If you try that again, I’m going to drop you,” he allegedly informed the boy.…Continue Reading
DAVIE, FL – A man with a history of battery arrests has been arrested again after allegedly using a cat to attack his girlfriend.
Kenneth Stuart, 41, was fighting with his live-in girlfriend last week when he walked into the bedroom holding her cat over his head, then threw it in her face. The cat ended up scratching the woman on the left side of her face and her eye.
When police arrived, Stuart told them, “Just take me to fucking jail. I’m tired of this.” And take him to jail they did, charging Stuart with battery, tormenting an animal, and resisting an officer without violence.
When he faced Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley to answer to the charges, he told Hurley he’s unemployed and unable to work because of herniated discs in his back. Hurley found that interesting, especially after reading the facts about the case.
“That’s very interesting. I didn’t realize you had such a bad back,” said Hurley. “They say you broke the TV, the computer, the kitchen window, and then during it, you pushed her, knocked the TV and the computer to the ground.”
Hurley ordered Stuart to be held in jail on a $16,000 bond.…Continue Reading
CARROLL COUNTY, GA – An 8-year-old girl with hair extensions had to be taken to the emergency room after bullies at her school pulled her hair so hard that they ripped her scalp.
Aolani Dunbar’s family said she wanted to brush her hair like other girls at school so she got hair extensions. When she showed up to school, other kids picked on her for two weeks and took turns trying to pull out the extensions. They pulled her hair so hard that they eventually ripped Aolani’s scalp.
“They kept pulling it and pulling it, especially on the playground,” said Aolani. “Everybody got a chance, and I was in the gazebo sitting there crying because I have no friends to play with that will protect me.”
Her grandmother discovered the injury after she returned home from school one day. “When I saw just the horror of it, I just started to cry,” said Dorris Bearden. “I cried as I un-braided her hair and the hair fell out in my hands.”
She was taken to the hospital to have her scalp repaired, where she had to have her hair shaved to avoid infection.…Continue Reading
