Police say they first showed up at the home of Valerie Jackson on Saturday morning after receiving a phone call from Jackson’s sister, who was concerned to learn that her sister’s ex, Conley, was at her sister’s home.
Conley and Jackson had a tumultuous relationship over the years, marked with a series of domestic assaults that included Conley bashing Jackson’s head into a refrigerator and Conley serving some time for wrapping an electrical cord around a baby’s throat. Jackson finally had enough in July and kicked Conley out and changed the locks.
Police would visit the home several times that day, but would find no need to make a forced entry until an officer looked through a window and saw a child lying on the ground inside. Once the deputies made their way into the home, they made a quick retreat after Conley opened fire on them.…
PITTSBURGH, PA – Police have arrested 25-year-old Cesar Mazza after they say he became upset that his ex-girlfriend wouldn’t name their newborn son after him, so he stabbed her to death and fatally beat her 72-year-old grandmother.
On May 6, Mazza took his 3-month-old son from foster care and dropped him off at his mother’s home. When asked why he and the baby were covered in blood, Mazza claimed that the blood was his and the result of the baby’s mother, 19-year-old Tionna Banks, trying to stab him because he forgot to bring her a pack of cigarettes when he picked up their baby.
The next day, police performed a wellness check on Banks after she did not report back to a social service agency by her assigned time. When police entered the residence, they would find Banks dead after suffering 15 stab wounds and some fractured bones. Her grandmother, 72-year-old Valerie Crumpton, was found dead with trauma to her head and body.

According to police, the girl got into an argument with her stepmother, 50-year-old Maria Torres, that led to the girl starting a small fire in her bedroom. When Torres confronted the girl about the fire, the girl stabbed her.

The following morning, police found the girl walking along some railroad tracks with a juvenile female friend in nearby Bristol. She was taken to the Elkhart County Juvenile Detention Center without incident. Police have not been able to interview her because she is a minor and the victims were her parents. They’ll have to wait until a judge appoints her a legal guardian.…
On Friday, Keever doused Amy Keever with gasoline and then set her on fire in front of their kids. A neighbor heard Amy screaming and ran over to help, watching as Donn drove away in his truck.
“She wasn’t on fire just a little bit. She was on fire. I can’t get it out of my head. It’s nothing I would ever imagine seeing,” said witness Jennifer Lewis.
She managed to help Amy put the flames that had burned off a large portion of Amy’s clothes, and call 911. Amy was rushed to the hospital suffering from serious burns over a large portion of her body.
Donn Keever was seen later that day speeding the wrong way down I-65. Witnesses say Keever abruptly turned into the path of a semi, crashing into it head-on.

According to investigators, a realtor helping the couple sell their house stopped by on Sunday with some potential buyers. He found that the doors were locked and barricaded with furniture before hearing Agren crying for help in an upstairs bedroom.
The realtor broke into the house and made his way to the master bedroom where he discovered a gruesome scene. Agren was alive on the floor with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Her husband, 59-year-old Michael Jordan, and her son, 17-month-old Miles, were both lying dead on the bed.
Agren was taken to the hospital to treat her wound and would admit to police that she was the one who fatally shot her husband and son before turning the gun on herself. Police believe Agnes shot them two or three days before being found.
As for motive, it is looking like another case of postpartum depression.…
SANDY, UT — I missed this story when it first came out, but police in Utah have arrested 31-year-old Joseph Castellanos after he allegedly beat his girlfriend before stabbing her with a fork, covering her in hot sauce and trying to force her into an oven.
I happened last month when Castellanos arrived home and was very, very upset with his live-in girlfriend because she had been slow to respond to his Facebook messages he’d sent from work.
So, over the next 2 hours, police say Castellanos “punched the woman several times in the face and body, kicked her in the ribs, threatened to kill her, stabbed the top of her head using a kitchen knife causing a quarter-inch wound, held a second knife to her throat, stabbed her head and body at least five times with a fork, urinated on her, struck her with a belt and buckle, poured hot sauce and ranch dressing on her and tried to put her in an oven.” Aristocrats!
He eventually gave up trying to stuff her in the oven, which was on btw, and said he had another plan.…
AUGUSTA, GA – Tabathia Grooms helped bolster a few stereotypes regarding Georgians after she attacked her boyfriend, Carlos Grace, because he declined to have sex with her.
According to reports, the 35-year-old came home around 11:30 p.m. after a night of drinking. She was still fuming because, earlier in the day, Grace had refused to kiss that colostomy bag she calls a mouth.
As Grace sat on a couch, Grooms informed him that she’d went out and “fucked everyone else because he would not fuck her,” then physically attacked him. During the assault, Grooms allegedly scratched Grace on the face, head and neck and bit him on the arm before he was able to lock himself in the bathroom and call 911.
When police arrived, they reported that Grooms was “highly intoxicated” and refused to explain what had happened. She did admit to drinking and threatened to run a deputy over with a baby stroller if he did not move out of her way.
While at the residence, Grooms’ 66-year-old mother took one of the officers aside and told them that her daughter had punched her in the face during her tirade.…
MOUNT DORA, FL – A 45-year-old detention deputy with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and improper exhibition of a firearm last Monday after following another vehicle and brandishing a gun at the couple in the car.
It appears that Thomas J. Thompson was not in a good mood following his arrest, since he was arrested–again!–Wednesday on a domestic violence charge related to an argument between him and his wife that Monday night.
Let’s get this little bit of business out of the way before someone gets confused: yes, I described Thompson as a detention deputy with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Different words are used in different jurisdictions, but understand that the phrase in question tags Thompson as a jailer. Not a police officer.
Way back when, I was a juvenile detention officer. Yes, officer. My official title was Court Services Officer, and I did indeed carry a shiny badge proclaiming my name, title, and county; in the course of my job, I was required to make decisions regarding crimes committed and those accused of committing crimes.…
SPRINGFIELD, OR — Police have arrested 38-year-old Jeremy Ringquist after the bodies of his parents were found stuffed inside a freezer at their home.
According to reports, Ringquist had recently moved from Chicago and into the home of his parents, Randy, 63 and Karen, 65, following a divorce and a disability that prevented him from working.
Neighbors described Karen as sweet, but say Randy was a raging alcoholic who verbally abused both Karen and his son. According to Karen’s cousin, Mark Cestaric, the abuse was worse than verbal.
He said Randy was physically and mentally abusive to Karen and, after he moved back home, so was Jeremy. Cestaric said he talked to Karen by phone every week and that the last time he talked to her, on May 22, she said Jeremy had kicked her.
“Karen and her husband, they didn’t get along, he was abusive to her. And then their son moved in and he was also abusive. He’s a 300-pound kid,” Cestaric said. “Her life was miserable and I tried to tell her to get out.…
ROGERSVILLE, TN – Johnny Richards, 33, and Erin Lawson, 32, like to fight, screw each other loudly and stab neighbors for calling the police to complain.
The neighbor unfortunate enough to live next door to this lovely couple, called police to report what he thought was a domestic disturbance of some kind. It turned out the couple were just having sex loud enough that it sounded like they were killing each other.
The neighbor called police once more when the couple started at it again, but this time they were actually fighting. When the police left, the couple went to the neighbor to confront him with a rake. When he opened the door, Richards beat the shit out of him with it, breaking the handle. He then used the broken handle to stab the man in the arm.
A report from responding officer HCSO Cpl. Kenneth Ferguson confirms the neighbor’s story matches his injuries.

Baird’s roommate came home from work at 2 am and was let in by the Baird’s 4-year-old daughter. After finding Baird unconscious, she called 911. Paramedics would take Baird to Ben Taub Hospital where she was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma.
The roommate now fears Baird’s young daughter may have witnessed the murder. “I found the baby. The baby is the one who opened the door and let me in. I’m so worried about the baby at this point, because of what she went through and what she saw.”
Earlier that evening Baird had been texting her friend, Jennifer Lester, who confirmed that Baird had been fighting with her ex-boyfriend. Lester asked Baird if her ex had gotten physical with her. She replied with a very short text that simply stated, “Yes. I’m ok.”
Houston Homicide Detectives confirmed that a man with the same name as the ex-boyfriend was found dead the next morning of an apparent suicide.…
KINNEAR, WY – On Friday, 46-year-old Terry Schmuck was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder after hitting his estranged wife Cindy in the head with a hatchet. (Insert your own joke about a “hatchet job” here.)
Terry Schmuck got served divorce papers early Thursday morning and didn’t react well. Actually, someone give me an award for understatement already. KCWY13 reported that “[t]he affidavit says Terry cut the telephone wires with the hatchet before forcefully entering the home and striking his estranged wife in the head. It was then that the victim asked to be taken to the hospital when terry [sic] took her.”
Your language lesson of the day: “The Latin adverb sic (“thus”; in full: sic erat scriptum, “thus was it written”) inserted immediately after a quoted word or passage, indicates that the quoted matter has been transcribed exactly as found in the source text, complete with any erroneous or archaic spelling, surprising assertion, faulty reasoning, or other matter that might otherwise be taken as an error of transcription.” Thanks, Wikipedia!…
AUBURN, ME – Three decades ago, 66-year-old John Lane was convicted of killing his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter by cooking her in an oven. Now a federal judge says that Lane should seek a new trial.
On the night of October 27, 1984, John Lane, then 37, was living with 30-year-old Cynthia Palmer and Palmer’s two daughters. 4-year-old Angela Palmer and 5-year-old Sarah.
That night, Lane beat and tortured Angela before forcing her into an oven and wedged a chair against the door so she could not get out. Lane then turned the heat up as high as it could go as Angela screamed, “Let me out, Daddy, let me out!”
It was the smell and smoke of Angela’s cooked body that eventually led police to the apartment and discover Angela’s smoldering body after tracing the source of the smoke and opening the oven.
Lane would end up charged with murder while Angela’s mother would be charged with manslaughter. She would later be acquitted because, according to her, she had overdosed the night of Angela’s murder and was not aware of what had happened.…
