Lawndale, CA - Surveillance cameras at a California high school captured 60-year-old Juan Gutierrez, a teacher’s aid, molesting a 16-year-old mentally challenged student, police say.
The incident reportedly took place on May 7th at Leuzinger High school when Gutierrez allegedly led the female victim into a stairwell where he touched her inappropriately over her clothing on her private parts.
The idiot had the foresight to do this in apparent plain view of other students who described the incident to the school principal. The principal alerted authorities and a formal investigation was launched resulting in Gutierrez’s arrest on Friday by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department.
Sgt. Dan Scott of the Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Unit claims that a student who witnessed the event actually recorded it on his or her cell phone but then deleted it before it could be recovered by authorities. Regardless, the sick bastard’s deed was still captured by the school’s surveillance cameras.
The bold manner in which this vile perv went about molesting this girl, who reportedly has the mental capacity of an elementary school child, means there’s a high probability this is not the first time Gutierrez has touched a student inappropriately at the school.…Continue Reading
Last October we reported on 62-year-old Jose Melena, the Bumble Bee Food employee who was cooked to death after being trapped inside an industrial pressure cooker. Now the company has been fined nearly $74,000 and cited for six safety violations.
State regulators investigated the accidental death of Melena for seven months before handing over their report, which included the details behind the man’s horrible death.
Melena, a father of six, had been employed with the company for five years. One of his responsibilities was loading 54-inch by 36-foot ovens with 12 rolling metal baskets full of tuna cans. These ovens then sterilize the cans while also processing the tuna.
When I first reported on this, I was curious about the oven and did a little Googling and found some images of an industrial tuna steamer sold by JBT. Seeing what one looks like makes the following details a little easier to understand.
On Oct. 11, 2012, Melena was ordered by his supervisor to load one particular oven. According to the report, Melena entered the oven to make a repair or to adjust a chain, leaving a pallet jack outside the oven.…Continue Reading
West Haven, CT – Gary Gray, whose eyes are currently raping your soul, is being charged with the double-whammy of first degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a child.
The 42-year-old has been under investigation since September of 2012, after the alleged victim, a 10-year-old girl, confided in her mother that she ‘thought’ she had sex with Gray, who was living with the family. I thought I was having sex with a fat chick once, turned out I was penetrating a Reuben sandwich that got lost in a fold on its way from the table to her maw.
Forensic examinations and medical evaluations revealed the girl had injuries consistent with sexual assault, police said. When interviewed by police, Gray reportedly told them, “Last time I admitted it, this time I’m not admitting it.”
The “last time” to which Gray was referring was a previous arrest for sexual assault and risk of injury to a child. He’s nothing if not consistent. Gray is also and currently the subject of a New Haven investigation involving another possible sexual assault.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – Last Thursday morning, 63-year-old Pamela Devitt was brutally mauled to death by several pit bulls while out jogging. Now police are investigating Devitt’s death as a possible homicide.
A passing motorist saw Devitt laying face down on the ground while several of the dogs were attacking her. She tried honking her horn to scare the dogs away, but they attacked her car, biting its tires. The driver called 911 and the responding officer tried to chase the dogs away, but was also attacked. The deputy fired a round at the dog which ran off into the desert.
But it was too late for Devitt. The poor woman had been dragged 50 yards, scalped, and had one of her arms ripped off. She would die in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Devitt, a married mother of two, often went jogging in the morning.
Police would seize six pit bulls and two mixed-breed dogs at the home of 29-year-old Alex Jackson after receiving information from Animal Control that he owned pit bulls that have been aggressive in the past.…Continue Reading

While her boyfriend is at work, Garcia takes care of the man’s daughter from a previous relationship. Police were called to the couple’s home Thursday afternoon after a neighbor called to report hearing a woman hitting a child.
When police arrived, they found the girl unresponsive with bruises around her eyes. She was taken to a hospital with a traumatic head injury. During their investigation, they were shown a video taken by another neighbor showing Garcia striking the 15-month-old on Wednesday.
“The previous day, a neighbor heard the child crying and the sound of a disturbance coming from the residence and went to investigate. Through an open window, a neighbor saw and took video from their cell phone,” said police in a statement.
The video shows Garcia seated on the floor when, “Without provocation, Garcia violently swung her hand and slapped the child on the head, knocking the child off her feet as she flew several feet away and lay motionless on the ground,” Watsonville police Sgt.…Continue Reading

Valley Springs, CA – Police arrested 12-year-old Isaiah Fowler on Saturday and will be charging him with the death of his 8-year-old sister, Leila Fowler, who was murdered last month.
On April 27, the Isaiah and Leila were home alone when Leila was stabbed more than twenty times inside their home. The brother told police he saw a man with long grey hair leaving their home and found his sister suffering from multiple stab wounds. A neighbor also told police they’d also seen the man running from the scene.
Police began an intensive search for the suspect while residents were told he was considered armed and dangerous and instructed to lock their doors as deputies searched the area. Authorities searched the home and neighborhood, while dive teams searched two reservoirs near the house.
Aside from possible fingerprints and DNA found in the home, and a possible link to an abduction attempt in a nearby town, police didn’t seem to be getting any closer to finding the person responsible. But in a statement issued Saturday, Sheriff Gary Kuntz informed the public they could sleep safely as they’d found the person responsible – Isaiah Fowler.…Continue Reading
Seattle, WA – A possible dispute over property lines between neighbors turned dangerous and somewhat hysterical when a 51 year-old Barry Alan Swegle hopped in a bulldozer and started smashing into houses.
Swegle is reported to have a lengthy criminal history which includes public indecency, stalking and burglary. He is also known by his neighbors as the guy who digs random holes with his bulldozer late at night. It would seem it was simply a matter of time before Barry was featured here at the Dreamin’ Demon for something.
One of his neighbors, Barbara Porter, claims she knew this was coming. She states ”We all said one of these days Barry is going to take that dang cat and he’s going to start tearing up people’s property and that’s what he did.” Well then. The rampage started sometime around noon on Friday, when Barry decided to play Blastcorps in real life. I hope Joe Lieberman doesn’t hear about this one.
Barry fired up an International Harvester TD-25 and took out his grumpies on his neighbors’ property.…Continue Reading
Ontario, Canada – Ontario police are asking for the public’s help in locating 32-year-old Timothy Bosma, who was last seen Monday after taking two men for a test drive in the pickup truck he was trying to sell online.
Bosma was reported missing by his wife Monday night after he never returned home from meeting two men interested in buying his black 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel pickup with the Ontario licence number 726 7ZW. On Thursday afternoon, police found Bosma’s cellphone in an industrial complex in west Brantford.
Police were able to track the cellphone they believed the suspects used to contact Bosma which led them to a man in Etobicoke. He told police he was also selling a truck and had met two men that he took on a test drive. He said the men were suspicious and he found it odd that they arrived at his business on foot. They did not buy the truck, and the man was not harmed.
“He thought it was odd, because of the size of the vehicle. It’s more of a business vehicle than a personal vehicle,” said Det.…Continue Reading
CARY, NC — Police have charged 61-year-old Dottie Amtey with murder after they say she strangled her 77-year-old husband to death.
Police were dispatched to the home of Dottie and Shared after an unidentified woman called 911 Wednesday night. When police arrived at the home, they found Shared unconscious in an upstairs bedroom with someone on the phone with 911 trying to perform CPR in an unsuccessful attempt to revive him.
Police initially said Dottie would be charged with first-degree murder, but the Wake County District Attorney’s Office is considering charging her with second-degree murder.
The couple had been married for over 30 years and had five children together. Dottie was recently employed at UCB Pharma, and Shared was a research physicist, with career stops at universities and a massive government research project.
Cary officials say this is the first homicide they’ve had in their town in nearly two years.
While no motive has been released, there’s enough information in this article regarding the couple that makes it easy to speculate that this was probably some kind of mercy killing, and could also explain why prosecutors are considering the lesser murder charge.…Continue Reading
DARLINGTON, WI – Jaren Kuester, a 31-year-old man with a history of mental problems, has been arrested and charged with beating three elderly people to death with a fireplace poker.
According to reports, Kuester was arrested after threatening staff members at a Waukesha County animal shelter. Staff there said Kuester demanded that the dead dog he’d dropped off a few weeks earlier be returned to him alive. He told them they would pay with their lives when they did not oblige.
After making bail, he got in his vehicle and started driving, feeling as if his life was “crashing and burning” around him. After driving three counties away, he felt as if he was being followed, so he abandoned his vehicle, stripped off his clothes, and ran into the woods.
He ended up getting cold and broke into the farmhouse of Gary Thoreson, 70, and Chloe Thoreson, 66, who were not at home. After getting clothes, food, and searching for valuables, Kuester went to sleep on a bedroom floor. Sometime after, 70-year-old Dean Thoreson, Gary’s brother, arrived and entered the home.…Continue Reading
DALLAS, TX – Marlena Mints, a sex ed teacher and coach at Bessie Coleman Middle School, was arrested Wednesday morning after the 31-year-old was accused of having a sexual relationship with two of her students.
According to an arrest warrant, a 13-year-old student told another coach at the school that he’d had sexual contact with Mints. He said he was texting Mints one day and told her there was something wrong with his dick. Mints told him she would have to see it to know what was wrong with it, so he met Mints at the school where she examined the boy’s penis with her mouth.
The student would later tell police he has been allowed to touch her tits and ass on numerous occasions in her classroom in the presence of other students who were also allowed to do the same. Looking at her picture, I can just imagine these kids pawing on her as she excitedly exclaimed, “Ah ab godda ta neecho boke ooh neetah!”
A second student was also interviewed and he claimed he and Mints exchanged multiple messages via phone and the chat application Voxer, including Mints asking him if he liked white girls and initiating their first sexual encounter at her home in Cedar Hill.…Continue Reading
MOUNT HOPKINS, AZ – Lord knows I have reported on just about every horrifying death imaginable, but every now and then one comes around that has me thinking about the victim and muttering, “You poor, poor son of a bitch.”
On Monday, 55-year-old Steven Johnson was found dead in the Santa Rita Mountains hanging from his rappelling gear and covered in bee stings. The dog Johnson often took with him was also found dead and covered in bee stings on the cliff Johnson had rappelled from.
Johnson, an experienced hiker and mountain climber, was reportedly working an area of Mount Hopkins on Friday to prepare it for future climbers. Sheriff’s deputies went to search the site after he failed to show up for work on Monday.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine actual cause of death, but Santa Cruz County’s Lt. Raoul Rodriguez believes that Johnson may have disturbed a bees’ nest while hammering his ropes into the cliff. Some comments state that this is a terrible time of year in regards to bees, and some mentioned that the bees that attacked Johnson and his dog were probably the dreaded Africanized Honey Bee, aka the true Killer Bee.…Continue Reading
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – We just reported on the Florida father accused of slapping and spitting on his son’s alleged bully, now we have a father out of Colorado who has been accused of pepper spraying a group of teens who may have bullied his son.
Police say that on Sunday afternoon, the unidentified man pulled up next to four 13-year-old boys then sprayed them with pepper spray before driving away. Reportedly, this attack was in retaliation for the boys possibly physically assaulting his 8-year-old son.
Police said the man’s son claims he was assaulted by the kids in the apartment complex playground, and that they had tried to steal his skateboard. When he informed his father, the man jumped in his car and caught up with the boys a few blocks away and gave them the business.
Police have interviewed the father and plan on seeing if the teens can identify him from a photo lineup. The man has not been charged at this time, but authorities are considering he be charged with misdemeanor child abuse.…Continue Reading
MARION, ID – On Monday, 14-year-old Braylee Rice hanged herself with a necktie on the bleachers located behind McCulloch Junior High School.
School officials said around 9:00 am Monday morning, Rice snuck away from the gym during a break from ISTEP testing, then used a necktie she regularly wore to hang herself on the bleachers near the track.
Some reports state no one saw Rice commit suicide, but Jennifer Smith says her seventh grade son was walking around the track with other students and a teacher when they saw her jump from the bleachers.
“They heard a noise and looked over at the bleachers and she had jumped,” said Smith, who also said Braylee came to school Monday with a piece of paper taped over her mouth with a smiley face drawn on the tape.
Police are still investigating a motive, but as is usually the case whenever a teen kills themselves, allegations of school bullying immediately reared its ugly head. Police and school officials have said it is too early in the investigation to pinpoint bullying as a factor in Rice’s death.…Continue Reading
Ocenaside, CA – Tim Lambesis, the 32-year-old lead singer for the
jumbo shrimp Christian metal band As I Lay Dying, has been arrested and accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife.
Police received information last Thursday that Lambesis was “soliciting another individual” to kill his wife, Meggan, who filed for divorce last September. She currently lives in Encinitas with three Ethiopian children the couple had adopted.
According to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, “The Encinitas Detectives, The San Diego Fugitive Task Force and the Sheriff’s Special Investigation Division investigators immediately initiated an investigation. The investigation culminated this afternoon [Tuesday], when Lambesis solicited an undercover detective to kill his wife.”
In his defense, while the Bible is pretty clear that you should not kill anyone, it’s a bit hazy when it comes to hiring someone else to do it for you. Lambesis was arrested without incident, then booked into the Vista Detention Facility. His next court appearance should be today or tomorrow.
I’ve never listened to As I Lay Dying, or any religious themed band that doesn’t worship the devil, so I have no idea if they are any good or not.…Continue Reading
CASSELBERRY, FL — Allen Banyacksi is facing child abuse charges after he allegedly slapped one of his son’s bullies and spit in his face.
Banyacksi would not comment on the charges against him, but did go on camera to say that his son is being incessantly bullied at Helm Way West and that he feels helpless.
“I feel horrible that I can’t do more. That I can’t be at school every day to watch over him. To walk him through the hallways,” Banyacksi said. ”I have four kids and he’s my youngest. He’s my baby. And we’ve watched him get bullied since the 4th grade. And when does it stop?”
According to a police report, Banyacksi confronted the two kids who were bullying his son as they walked home from school last Thursday. The boys told police Banyacksi pulled up along side them in his car and threatened to kill them.
One of the boys responded to Banyacksi’s threats by giving him the middle finger. Banyacksi allegedly responded by spitting in the boy’s face. When the boy spit back, Banyacksi gave him five across the eyes before getting back into his car and driving home.…Continue Reading
Santa Fe, NM - An 18-year-old high school student claims he was raped by his horticulture teacher, 31-year-old Jennifer Vigil, in her classroom at Pojoaque Valley High School.
The student states Vigil pressured him into sex acts when he turned in an assignment to her after school. She allegedly locked the classroom door and said, ”You’re not leaving until I get something from you.” He initially refused, but Vigil agreed to let him leave if he let her perform a sex act on him.
Vigil admits having sex with him in her classroom, but insists the sex was consensual. However the student told police that the idea of sex with her was “disgusting.” Harsh. Vigil claims he requested oral sex from her and that led to intercourse, and he again requested to have sex with her at a later date and she agreed. He took a picture with his cellphone of her blowing him and showed it to police.
These stories are now a dime a dozen; male teenage student, attractive-ish married female teacher, sex, everybody gasps thinking a woman would know better, men everywhere ask, “Where were these teachers when I was a student?” and the overwhelming response is, “You were too ugly” .…Continue Reading

Chicago, IL – A 14-year-old boy was pepper sprayed and robbed after he arranged a sexual encounter with 22-year-old Dareka Brooks.
On Wednesday, the teen had the house to himself and decided this was a perfect time to hire himself a prostitute. So he went online and used a website often frequented for people trying to setup sexual encounters, and met Brooks.
After agreeing to the terms of their meeting, Brooks showed up at his home and instructed the teen to go to the bedroom and take off his pants. Once the teen was nekkid, Brooks entered the room and slaughtered the kid’s boner by allegedly pepper spraying him in the face.
She then made off with an iPad, a jar full of money, and the teen’s piggybank. The teen called police to report the robbery and gave them the description of Brooks’ car. Police were able to locate Brooks at a local motel after she turned on the iPad. The stolen items were recovered and returned to the teen.
