WATERFORD, WI — Police have charged 30-year-old Jason Willis with felony identity theft after they say he was placing Craigslist sex ads to harass his neighbor.
Willis allegedly created personal ads on Craigslist looking for hookups, pretending to be a female neighbor who had no idea what he was doing. The only thing she was aware of was the strange men coming to her house in the middle of the night.
“The defendant sent multiple emails using the victim’s identifying information, her name, her address, and sending people to her home for sexual activity,” Racine County Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Sommers said.
After sending the men away, she eventually called 911 when one man showed up at 12:30 a.m. wearing nothing but a raincoat.
“It was at 12:30 a.m., with my daughter and I here, and it freaked me out. Somebody insistently ringing the doorbell at 12:30 a.m. is not a good sign, so I just called 911,” the victim said.
Police arrived and found the man who informed them he was just responding to a Craigslist ad. After a month long investigation, police arrested her neighbor, Willis, who told police it was just a joke.…Continue Reading
Truxton, NY – Four children and three adults were killed Wednesday when their minivan was hit by a trailer carrying crushed cars on Route 13 in Truxton, New York.
The accident happened around 6 p.m. after a trailer carrying around 20 crushed cars broke free from a truck travelling on Route 13. The runaway trailer struck a minivan, ripping it apart, and killing seven members of two families.
The names of the deceased are 26-year-old Teresa Bush and her two daughters, 4-year-old Alexis and 5-year-old Jasmine. Also killed were 21-year-old Lena Beckwith, 24-year-old Carino Vanorden, 7-year-old Alyssa Mead and 4-year-old Tyler Mead. The father of the two Mead children, Shawn Mead, was transported to Upstate University Hospital where he was in good condition.
First assistant fire chief Ken Stone said a couple of victims were under the trailer when help arrived. The trailer had to be jacked up to get them out. ”It was all instant, no doubt,” Stone said. He added that responders were deeply affected by the crash. “You get all that training and you’re not ready for it,” he said.…Continue Reading
Somewhere – The FBI is asking for the public’s help in identifying two women in connection to child porn circulating online of a seven-year-old girl being sexually abused.
Investigators have released images of the two women they have labelled ‘Jane Doe 25′ and ‘Jane Doe 26.’ They feel finding these women can lead them to the young victim and her male abuser. ”These are not even individuals who are involved in the abuse to our knowledge,” said Laura Eimiller from the FBI. “They’re clues that are taken from the images and video of real child pornography.”
‘Jane Doe 25′ is described as a white female, likely between the ages of 18 and 25, with dark hair and a wing tattoo covering most of her back. ’Jane Doe 26′ is described as a possibly Hispanic female, likely between the ages of 25 and 35, with dark hair and brown eyes.
Authorities have been aware of the images since August 2012, and they continue to circulate on child pornography sites. “The images in the video are very graphic.…Continue Reading
BANGOR, ME —Earlier this month we reported that 20-year-old Kyle Dube had been charged with the murder of 15-year-old Nichole Cable. Yesterday an affidavit reveals that Nichole died after Kyle intended to kidnap Nichole, hide her and then find her so he could be deemed a hero. Unfortunately for Nichole, Kyle is an idiot who accidentally killed her in the process.
Nichole went missing on Mother’s Day after leaving her home to meet someone she had met on Facebook named Bryan Butterfield. A week later, after receiving information from several sources, police found Nicole’s dead body in a wooded area. The following day, Kyle Dube was charged with intentional and knowing murder.
At the time we first reported on this, there were not a lot of details regarding the relationship between Kyle and Nichole. The information in the affidavit fills in some of those blanks. Turns out Kyle had made sexual advances towards Nichole, but Nichole had turned him down. Kyle then created a fake Facebook profile using someone else’s identity and began communicating online with Nichole.…Continue Reading
In 1990, Carroll was living in a halfway house after serving time in prison for lewd conduct with two children. Living next door was Christine, her mother and her stepfather. On Oct. 30, 1990 after Christine’s mother left for work, Carroll raped and strangled the poor girl in her own bed while her stepfather slept.
Carroll’s last meal consisted of sunny-side-up eggs with bacon and sliced tomatoes, biscuits, avocados, a fruit salad of strawberries, papaya, peaches and pineapple and canned milk. He declined to make a final statement, but Christine’s mother, Julie McGowen, issued one: “Thank you to all that have worked so hard, and justice for all, namely, Christine McGowen. Rest in peace.”
The Catholic Diocese of Orlando held a service just before Carroll’s execution, praying for the abolition of the death penalty. “It’s a destructive tool rather than a preventive tool,” Bishop John Noonan said to the 30 people who attended.…Continue Reading
Cape Coral, FL – Police were called to Lisa Velez’s home on Sunday evening after she was found living with her two autistic children, one legally an adult and one a minor, in total and complete squalor.
They may have been called there by Velez’s estranged husband, who had returned to the home after being gone for over a year. He found Velez and his two autistic daughters living with eight cats inside a home littered with a bevy of cats, feces, trash, old food boxes, ants, spiders, vomit, roaches and general nastiness. There were even animal carcasses on the back patio.
It could have been her neighbors who have long suspected something wasn’t right inside the home. “I would come out at 10:30 at night and she’s out there, her daughter out there running around the street, yelling at every car over 30 miles an hour,” a neighbor said.
It may have even been DCF, who hav been investigating Velez for two years. They had visited the home previously and had instructed Velez to clean up the living conditions for her kids.…Continue Reading
Queens, NY – Last week, 12-year-old Gabrielle Molina was found hanging in her room, dead from an apparent suicide. Now police have confirmed what others had been saying since the news broke – she killed herself because she was being bullied.
Molina’s body was discovered by her 15-year-old sister in their bedroom at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. As is usually the case when young people kill themselves, accusations of bullying were immediate. Friends and family say that Molina was the target of bullying both online and in person.
Her father George told the New York Post that his daughter was called a slut, whore and told she looked like she suffered from Down syndrome. There was even a video posted on Youtube called “Gabby’s Fight” that showed Molina in a fight with a former friend. Molina’s father said that these events, plus a recent breakup, pushed her over the edge.
“I was trying to comfort her because she was getting weak,” said her father. “I wanted to make her happy.” Her older sister said that while her parents knew of the bullying, even going to the school to complain about it, they did not know the full extent.…Continue Reading
New Zealand – Ana Eriepa is recovering in the hospital after the 37-year-old was kidnapped by her boyfriend and then dragged down the highway after escaping from the trunk of a car.
According to police, Eriepa left with her new boyfriend, 27-year-old Sonny Te Aramoana Waiti, to buy a new Subaru. Not a lot of details on what happened after the car was purchased, but at some point Waiti placed Eriepa in the trunk of her new car and then took off down the highway.
Eriepa managed to unlock the trunk of the car as it was speeding down the highway but her escape turned pear-shaped after her leg somehow managed to get stuck while climbing out. This resulted in her being dragged for a mile at a high rate of speed.
Onlookers described the scene as horrific, stating Eriepa’s body was “bouncing up and down, like a dummy.” Others said she resembled a bag of trash, or a sack of meat, more than she resembled a human being.
After finally falling free from the car, other motorists ran to help her.…Continue Reading
TACOMA, WA — Police have charged 25-year-old Tyler Deutsch with attempted murder after allegedly putting his 6-week-old daughter in the freezer to stop her from crying.
The infant’s 22-year-old mother called 911 on Saturday to report she’d left the infant in the care of her boyfriend but that when she returned, she witnessed Deutsch taking their infant daughter out of the freezer in their home.
Although the baby was unresponsive and had a temperature of 84 degrees when she was rushed to Tacoma’s Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, doctors expect the infant to recover.
According to Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer, Deutsch told sheriff’s deputies he wasn’t trying to kill his daughter, but had put the infant in the freezer to stop the girl from crying. She had been chillin’ in the ice box for about an hour.
“It was only a six-week-old kid – can’t do much other than cry – and from what we understand he wanted the baby to stop crying so he put the baby in the freezer,” Troyer said. ”The baby could have just been dead and on the way to being frozen.…Continue Reading
Rough and Ready, CA - Christina Salinas’ husband says the only thing he regrets about his wife biting his penis, is that he called 911.
The incident happened last Sunday after Salinas and her her husband, Anthony Hill, got into an argument while drinking at the Penn Valley Rodeo. She wanted to stay and dance, but he wanted to go home. The argument escalated once the couple arrived at home when Salinas grabbed two kitchen knives.
That’s when Salinas’ ex-husband, who lives with the couple, talked her into dropping the knives. When Hill tried leaving the house and got her four kids into the car, Salinas ran out and attacked him. With her husband and ex-husband trying to hold Salinas down, she somehow managed to bite Hill’s penis and hand.
Hill called 911, but says now he regrets doing that as the couple routinely assault each other. “I’ve assaulted her before in arguments,” he stated. “We work it out.” The Sheriff’s department stated Hill told them that Salinas smacked her oldest daughter around, but Hill is claiming this isn’t true.…Continue Reading
MOORE, OK – Two men were arrested Tuesday night, accused of looting from a Moore neighborhood hit by the EF-5 tornado that killed at least 24 people..
A homeowner called police after returning to his home to find two men going through the rubble of his house. When he asked what the hell they were doing, they stated they were searching for survivors. Unfortunately, they weren’t talking about human beings trapped underneath debris, they were talking about valuable items not destroyed by the tornado.
According to the homeowner who found the men in his house, he found some of his belongings in the suspects’ pockets. When police arrived at the scene, they found the men with a bag full of items the two had reportedly stolen from destroyed homes in the neighborhood.
Police have not identified the suspects at this time, much to many people’s dismay, but the video below shows both of them being arrested and sparked a long series of racists comments regarding their ethnicity. To combat the looting issue, the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner is working on a badge system that will issue badges to residents that allow them to enter neighborhoods damaged by the tornado.…Continue Reading
Charlotte, NC – A woman in North Carolina had her juvenile son arrested for allegedly stealing her Pop-Tarts.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the woman called police on Monday to report that her Pop-Tarts had been stolen from her home. She also told them that her son was the theif and that she wanted him arrested.
Since Charlotte’s crime rate is -6.7% lower in March than it was the same time last year, a bored police officer obliged and placed the kid under juvenile arrest. He’s been charged with larceny/misdemeanor and will appear in juvenile court.
One of the boy’s neighbors laughed when informed he’d been arrested for stealing his mother’s Pop-Tarts. “He seems real nice to me. I mean, he is real respectful,” said the neighbor. Another neighbor told reporters that the food in her house is there for her kids. “It would be nice if they asked, but they don’t. They are kids,” they said.
While the boy’s mother declined to comment, the arrest report stated the mother has been having ongoing discipline issues with her son, so she decided to use this incident to teach him a lesson.…Continue Reading

Plainfield, NJ – A 55-year-old New Jersey woman is recovering in the hospital after being viciously attacked by two American bulldogs on Saturday.
The woman was walking down the street when the two 5-year-old dogs, named Max and Marley, escaped from an unlocked fence and began attacking her.
Most of the attack was captured on video and shows the woman on the ground trying to defend herself while the two dogs alternate biting her.
You can also see as the owner of the dogs, along with passerbys, try everything from hitting the dogs with sticks, honking horns, and physically drag the dogs away from the woman – to no avail
When police showed up to the scene, the dogs were still attacking the woman so the officers fired five shots, killing both dogs. Plainfield Police Captain Ed Santiago said he had no issues with the officers’ decision to act.
“The next bite of a dog like that could have been a jugular. It could have killed her,” he said. “They weren’t even paying attention to their owner.”
Neighbors said it wasn’t the first time the dogs had gotten loose.…Continue Reading

Chicago, IL – Cook County prosecutors say Scandale Fritz, 16, Kenneth Brown, 15, and Justin Applewhite, 16, raped a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint, then posted a video of the sexual assault on their Facebook pages.
It happened in December of last year when the victim went to Fritz’s home to talk to him. Once inside, the girl said that Brown and Applewhite were also there and that Brown had a gun in his pocket.
Fritz took the girl into the basement were he raped and sodomized her. He then ordered her to have sex with the other two teens. She refused, but later complied because she was scared Brown would kill her.
The girl “knew that all three defendants were gang members of the Black Disciples faction ‘Tay-Town’ and was fearful that [Brown] would shoot her,” Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Bridget O’Brien said.
Tt’s quite common for teens to videotape their illegal activities so they can then share them online, and these teens were no exception. This particular video shows Brown waving a gun in the air while the girl performs a sex act, and all three shouting gang slogans, prosecutors said.…Continue Reading
Philadelphia, PA – Police arrested 26-year-old Attifa Brown inside her daughter’s school after she allegedly assaulted an 11-year-old girl she says has been bullying her daughter.
Brown says while she did go to A.B. Anderson Elementary School with her daughter to confront the other girl, she says she never touched her. ”I don’t beat my own child, let alone somebody else’s,” said Brown.
“The problem here is that we have a 26-year-old mother who has no reason to approach an 11-year-old child, so her credibility as far as I’m concerned is shot,” said Lt. John Walker, Philadelphia Police.
Besides, they say there is video of the incident. According to the 11-year-old victim’s mother, it shows Brown “over my daughter for minutes, poking her in the face, pulling her hair and beating her,” said Bobby Webster.
Brown is facing a myriad of charges, including terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and defiant trespass. School officials are looking into how Brown was able to walk into the school without signing in or without being questioned.…Continue Reading
Orem, UT – A father in Utah got so pissed off at two men who solicited his teenage daughters for sex that he helped arrange a sting that got both of the men arrested.
It happened on Wednesday when the man’s two daughters, ages 14 and 16, were walking through a Macey’s parking lot and were propositioned by 27-year-old Alexander Navidad-Hernandez.
After driving up beside them, he asked the girls if they needed money. He then handed them a five dollar bill with a phone number written on it, telling them to call the number if they needed more dough.
Frightened with their encounter, the girls hurried home and immediately told their father what had happened. Pissed, the father had the oldest daughter call the number to find out exactly what they had to do for the money.
Not surprisingly, the man wanted sex. When the girl agreed to $100, Navidad-Hernandez said that was too high and that he would only pay $30, as would a friend of his who wanted to participate. The girl said she would call him back, which she did, but only after her father had called the Oren police department.…Continue Reading
