Police responded to a residence on a domestic disturbance call last month to find 69-year-old Joyce Courson sitting in the hallway in a puddle of blood.
She was suffering from severe cuts and bruises to her face and more on her stomach and chest.
Courson told the officers that her grandson, Brougham, had flew into a rage because she’d taken his beer and wouldn’t tell him where she hid it.
She said he first punched several holes in the walls before shoving her to the floor. That’s when Brougham held her down and repeatedly punched her in the face, then started kicking her.
Another roommate in the house ran out of his room to investigate when he heard the woman yelling for help, but Brougham had already left the home.
Police would find the teen walking near the home and took him into custody. He told police that when he gets upset, “he blacks out in rage and does not remember what he does.”
Initially charged with aggravated battery, Brougham has now been charged with murder after Courson died from her injuries one week later.…
Police say 56-year-old Kurt Jenkins was driving slowly through a neighborhood with children, and was naked and with electrical wires protruding from his penis.
According to police reports, a witness said Jenkins drove up to him and gestured for him to look at Jenkins’ junk.
“(The witness) observed Jenkins was completely naked and saw an electronic device with wires, which was attached to Jenkins’ penis,” the police report said.
Jenkins opened the passenger door and asked him to get inside. The witness declined, but took a picture of Jenkins and called police.
Police said Jenkins would slow down his vehicle “almost to a complete stop” as children from a nearby school were dropped off in the neighborhood.
Arriving officers quickly located Jenkins, who refused police commands to get on the ground. The officers helped him out a bit and gave him a free makeover in the process.
Jenkins is now facing charges of lewd and lascivious exhibition, exposure of sexual organs, and resisting a law enforcement officer without violence.…
According to police, Monord admitted she was pissed at her sleeping boyfriend over some “infidelity issues” and decided to give him an “abrupt awakening.”
After boiling some water in a pot normally used to sterilize their son’s bottles, she tossed the water on 23-year-old Winsky Perpignan as he was in bed under the covers. He ended up suffering significant burns to his right arm, upper torso, stomach, back and face.
What Monord did not realize, for some reason, was that her boyfriend was not alone in the bed. Their son was sleeping beside him and was also doused with the boiling water. The baby ended suffering second-degree burns to his chest and left arm that could require skin grafting.
After initially denying purposefully pouring the water on her boyfriend, she finally admitted the truth.
“In the beginning of the investigation, she said it was an accident, but we found some inconsistencies in the story there and started digging a little deeper, and that’s when we were able to determine it was an intentional act and that she had done it on purpose,” Gainesville Police Department spokesman Officer Ben Tobias said.…
Police found 23-year-old Joaquin Mendez outside of a home with a gunshot wound to the chest. They were told by his cousin, 24-year-old Alexandro Garibaldi, that he found his cousin like that after hearing a gunshot.
However, witnesses told a completely different story. They said Mendez had put on a bulletproof vest and sat in a chair while wondering aloud “whether it still worked.”
The cousins found out it didn’t after Garibaldi allegedly pulled out a handgun and said “Let’s see,” before shooting Mendez in the chest. Police would find the bloody vest inside the home.
Mendez would be pronounced dead at the hospital while Garibaldi was arrested and charged with manslaughter. He was being held Sunday without bond.
Before anyone decides to post the obligatory “Floriduh” comment, these two are not the only ones we have featured on DD who found out a bullet-proof vest did not work.…
Michael Downing was found dead in the backyard of a residence next to the apartment complex where he lived. Investigators aren’t sure how Downing got into the backyard, but think he may have been pulled under a fence.
Downing, who had recently suffered a stroke, was very frail and was unable to defend himself from the four dogs — a Rottweiler, and three mixed breeds consisting of German shepherd, Rottweiler, and Chow Chow.
One witness said the dogs treated the elderly man like a rag doll, ripping off his legs and tearing flesh from his head and arms.
“By far it’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” said the witness. “There was only 30 percent left of his body probably.”
Neighbors who live in the apartment complex say the dogs bother anyone who takes their trash to the dumpsters next to the fence.…
Police say it started Monday night while Harrouff was with is family at a sports bar and restaurant. Harrouff reportedly stormed out of the restaurant, aggravated over the slow service.
His parents were so worried about his behavior that they called police and some of his fraternity brothers in hopes of locating him.
About 45 minutes later, Harrouff made contact with Michelle and John Stevens, who were sitting inside their open garage as they often did at night.
For reasons currently unknown, Harrouff viciously attacked and killed the couple with a switchblade and multiple “weapons of opportunity” found inside the garage.
“Both victims sustained massive trauma on multiple portions of their body. There were lacerations, stab wounds and blunt trauma,” Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said.
A neighbor heard the screams and witnessed Harrouff on top of John in the driveway.…
Steele has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child after she went to a cellphone store to have her phone repaired, leaving her 6 and 3-year-old son alone inside her minivan with their 13-day-old sister.
When the baby girl started crying, her older brother killed her by beating the ever-living crap out of her. But before I get into those details, let’s discuss the events that lead up to them. Besides, I’m sure some of you have already asked yourselves why a 62-year-old woman has a newborn.
Back in 2009, Steele and her late husband, Philip, was featured on the reality show I’m Pregnant and 55 Years Old. She explained that she worked as a broker, putting in 60-80 hours a week, when she met her husband in her 40s.
The couple tried for 12 years to conceive a child via vitro fertilization, and Steele finally became pregnant in 2009 at the age of 55.…
According to reports, 35-year-old Travis Martin called police at about 1:16 a.m. Sunday to let them know that he was shot at by some young boys in an SUV.
Martin, who is homeless, said he did not want to press charges and just wanted police to know what happened. However, Martin called back to say the SUV had returned and the kids had shot at him again while yelling vulgarities.
When an officer arrived at the location, Martin flagged them down and pointed out the SUV. The officer stopped the SUV, driven by 36-year-old Amina El-Zayat, and had her and her three juvenile sons get out of the vehicle.
Inside the vehicle the officer would find two air soft rifles, both replicas of M4 assault rifles, and one of which was fully automatic that could fire 15 pellets at a time.…
The incident happened on Tuesday while 45-year-old Joseph Carrao was at the park with his mother, brother, and three teenage children visiting one of the animal viewing areas.
For reasons known only to Carrao, the idiot picked up one of the 250 flamingos at the park and set it back down without injuring it. He then picked up a second flamingo special to the park, a dancing flamingo named Pinky, that made appearances around the area as part of the park’s conservation and education efforts.
When Carrao’s mother told him to leave the birds alone, the fat fuck threw Pinky to the ground so hard that one of her feet was almost severed. The injury was so severe that veterinarians that examined Pinky had no recourse but to euthanize the bird.
Corrao was detained by the park’s security and arrested by Tampa police on a charge of felony animal cruelty.…
A little after midnight on Sunday, 41-year-old Misty Childs got into an argument with her boyfriend, 45-year-old Lavont Moss inside the halfway-house where Moss lives.
After the argument, Moss went to bed while Childs fixed a pot of soup. Once the soup was boiling, Childs dumped the pot of soup on Moss’s face and torso as he was lying in bed. Childs then fled the scene.
One of the other residents described hearing Moss screaming that Childs had burned him before he fell on the couch.
“He was barely able to breathe because of the pain. He was moaning,” said Ashleigh Ferris.
Wesley Clark, a trained paramedic who also lives in the house, said the injuries Moss suffered were some of the worst he had ever seen.
“His skin, it just looked like someone took his shoulder blades and grabbed the skin and pulled it off,” Clark said.…
Police were called to a beach in Daytona Beach on Monday afternoon where they found 18-year-old Tatyana Allen had used the child to batter her boyfriend after the couple got into an argument.
According to witnesses, Allen was angry with her boyfriend because he would not walk with her to the bathroom. In response, Allen reportedly punched the man several times in the face before grabbing her son by the ankles and swinging him like a baseball bat at the man’s direction.
Allen then dropped the baby face-down in the sand and the boyfriend picked him up. Witnesses said Allen had been rough with the baby and at one point as she walked up the steps to the boardwalk, the baby’s head struck the railing.
Family members corroborated what witnesses told investigators, but refused to provide written statements. Surprisingly, the toddler was not injured, but was taken to a local hospital just in case.…
Reports are still coming in, but the Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a child was attending a movie night at the resort when the alligator dragged her into the Seven Seas Lagoon at around 9:30 p.m.
Some witnesses said they saw the child near the water but no one who saw the actual attack has spoke to reporters at this time. However, someone at the scene stated they heard a group of people describing the child’s father wrestling with the alligator.
The child’s name has not been released and it isn’t clear if she or her family were guests at the hotel. Police have taped off the scene and are using a helicopter and dive crews to look for th child. As of 11:30 p.m., the toddler has no been located.

Clearwater police say 23-year-old Roseanna Kiser was a guest at the Sheraton Sand Key Hotel who was spending time at the hotel’s pool Monday evening. While drinking from a bottle of vodka in the pool, Kiser became angry with several young children who were also in the pool.
When a 7-year-old boy Kiser didn’t know splashed water near, she responded by pouring some of her vodka directly into the boy’s eyes and face. She then grabbed him around the chest and pushed him away from her.
Police were called to the hotel and found Kiser inside her hotel room. When they tried escorting her off of the premises she began kicking and elbowing the arresting officers in the head, neck, and chest. She also managed to repeatedly kick one cop in the groin with the heel of her foot.
Kiser was placed in jail on felony charges of child abuse and battery on a law enforcement officer.…
HERNANDO, FL – If my stories don’t already have you afraid to take your eyes of your chirrun, here’s one where a man tried to drag a 13-year-old girl out of a Dollar Store but was stopped by the girl’s mother and an off-duty deputy who happened to be in the parking lot.
It happened on Tuesday morning when 30-year-old Craig Bonello decided to kidnap the girl from inside a Dollar General while she shopped with her mother.
As seen in the following surveillance video, the greasey bastard scopes out the pair for a bit before walking up and grabbing the girl by the arm. What follows is a terrifying tug-of-war between Bonello and the victim’s mother as he tries dragging the girl out of the store in full view of other shoppers.
The mother never gives up and manages to get Bonello to let go of her daughter. Bonello runs out of the store and into his car at the same time Deputy Jonathan Behnen pulled into the parking lot.…
According to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the girl had sex with as many as two dozen boys after school Tuesday afternoon at South Fort Myers High School and video of the activity was posted on social media.
Deputies said at that a hallway camera captured at least 25 males entering the restroom while the female was inside. Principal Melissa Layner is the one who reported the incident after reviewing the footage the following morning and after the female student admitted to her that she’d had sex with multiple males in the bathroom.
Layner sent a message to parents on Friday explaining that she cannot speak about student discipline with the media or parents of other students, but that student discipline was “dealt quickly.”
“The incident this week should not be a reflection on our combined efforts, administration, students, and teachers, to keep our building and students secure and safe,” Layner wrote.…
Police responding to a distress call at the home of Cheryl Lynch and her son, 38-year-old Christopher Lynch, early Sunday morning.
As deputies approached the home, they could hear loud yelling and the sounds of a person in distress.
They were approached by Christopher, who was covered in blood and wielding an iron rod with a hook on one end of it.
“You want some?” Christopher reportedly asked the officers before striking their patrol car with the iron rod. After refusing to comply to verbal commands, police shot Christopher multiple times with a stun gun.
This caused him to drop the iron rod, but Christopher began trying to kick and punch the officers. With the help of other deputies who arrived on the scene, police were finally able to get Christopher in leg irons and handcuffs.
On the front porch of the home police would find Christopher’s mother.…
Judith Therianos was reported missing by her family after the 52-year-old traveled to Florida from Maine to care for a sick friend. She was last seen on March 14 with a black eye and in the company of an unidentified man.
On April 7, her corpse was found in a wooded area near 6633 U.S. Highway 19. According to police, her body was posed with her breasts and genitals exposed. A specific cause of death has not been released, aside from reports of Therianos suffering from homicidal violence.
Two days after Therianos’ body was found, police arrested Johnson in connection to Therianos’ murder and accused him of doing much more after the woman was dead.
Investigators say the two did not know each other before meeting outside a liquor store on March 13 where they both went inside and purchased alcohol.
The two then made there way to a wooded area where police believe they began engaging in sexual intercourse.…
Victoria Reid, 60, reportedly confronted her 60-year-old husband about an affair he was allegedly having.
She had him sit on a sofa, then pulled out a gun that she used to taunt him with by aiming it at his head and chest.
According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, she told her husband of 16 years that she wanted to maim him and give him post-traumatic stress disorder – a condition she reportedly suffers from.
She may very well have succeeded, because she shot her husband in the knee. If that weren’t bad enough, the bullet traveled up the man’s thigh and took up residence in his testicles.
The man’s condition is not known, but Reid was arrested on Wednesday and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated domestic violence, false imprisonment and firing a weapon inside a home. She’s currently in the Brevard County Jail on a $35,000 bond.…
