Atlanta, GA – More than a dozen years after 52-year-old Edward Kramer was accused of molesting three teenage boys, he has pleaded guilty to three child molestation charges in a deal that would ensure he remains out of prison.
Kramer is the well-known editor of a slew of famous sci-fi, fantasy and horror works such as Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman: Book of Dreams and James O’Barr’s The Crow. In 1987 he helped create Dragon Con, a yearly convention held in Atlanta, Georgia for fans of science fiction, fantasy, and comic books. The first convention drew around 1400 people, but now attendance can reach up to 52,000.
In 2000, an anonymous tip led to Kramer being charged with sodomizing two brothers aged 13 and 15 at his home, over a period of four years. The charges ultimately filed against Kramer led to one of the most delayed trials in the history of Georgia, helped by Kramer’s alleged health issues and the 370 requests and complaints he filed within six months.
Kramer was initially allowed to remain on house arrest, but this was reversed a week later after the courts learned he’d had a teenage visitor.…Continue Reading
WALTON COUNTY, GA - A 2-year-old girl suffered burns to 30 percent of her body after she caught on fire while sliding down a slide that had been lubricated with gasoline.
Investigators say the girl was playing on a swing set at her father’s home when her 4-year-old sister got her hands on a gas can and poured gasoline down the plastic slide to make it more slippery.
When the younger girl went down the slide, it is believed static electricity ignited the gas and set the girl on fire. The girls’ father had just stepped inside when the accident happened, but heard her screams and doused her with water.
She was rushed to a nearby fire station for help, then later transported to Grady Memorial Hospital, where she was placed in a medically induced coma. Sheriff Joe Chapman said that no charges are pending as it appears to be nothing more than a tragic accident.
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
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
WOODSTOCK, GA – This one goes out to one of our Facebook Fans, who has a birthday today and asked for something raunchy. Two students in a Georgia high school have been charged with misdemeanor public indecency after a female freshman was filmed giving another student a blowjob inside a high school cafeteria.
Reportedly, the girl was dared to perform the sex act on the fellow freshman, who initially thought the girl’s proposition was a joke. He found out she wasn’t joking after students arranged books and book bags so that the two teens were hidden from others inside the Etowah High School cafeteria.
When the the girl began sucking off the boy, he reportedly stopped her. But not before another student filmed the act and did what all teens seem to do after filming something illegal. “The guy who recorded it, he sent it to people…a lot (of people),” one student said.
Not surprisingly, the video went viral as more and more students began sharing it. I’ve said it before, but I’m so thankful cameras were not prevalent when I was a teen.…Continue Reading
Douglasville, GA - A senior at a Georgia high school is being treated for burns to 25 percent of her body after a science experiment went wrong during her school’s open house, and she was caught on fire.
On Thursday, Chapel Hill High School was hosting an Advanced Placement Open House where groups of students conduct presentations throughout the building. One group was showing how you can identify chemicals by the color of their flame when burning.
Surveillance video captured the moment a flammable liquid came out of its container too quicklyand ignited. The resulting fireball set a 12th grade female student on fire, and people nearby learned how to identify a human by the color of their flame when burning. (Hint: Bright yellow and screaming).
One of the student’s teachers who’d been monitoring the experiment took her down to the ground in an effort to extinguish the flames, but was having some trouble. Another teacher handed 17-year-old Will Wheeler a fire blanket that he was able to use to finally put out the fire.…Continue Reading
Athens, GA – A couple in Georgia have been accused of raping their landlord’s 10-year-old autistic son at knife-point.
Raising an autistic child on your own can be hard enough, but Nancy was raising two – ages 9 and 10. She had no friends or family in the area, so when the youngest boy had a “severe meltdown” she asked her two tenants if they could watch the older boy while she stayed with his brother at the hospital.
Nancy met the couple, Melissa Nicole Jones and Matthew Wilson Freethy-Swimm, after she’d placed an ad on Craigslist looking for someone to rent an efficiency apartment she’d created at her condo. Before moving to Athens, the couple had been living out of their van and provided documentation that showed clean criminal histories.
“This was the one and only time I ever left any of my children alone with them,” Nancy said. “This was an emergency and there was no one else available I could turn to.” She added that the entire time she was at the hospital, she remained in constant contact with the couple.…Continue Reading
Ellenwood, GA - Police are searching for 14-year-old Ayvani Hope Perez after she was abducted from her home during a home invasion early Tuesday.
Clayton County police spokesman Phong Nguyen said that two black males pried open a back door of the home about 2:15 a.m. The mother tried hiding with her two children, but the two gunmen found them and demanded money and jewelry.
When the woman told the intruders that she did not have either of those two things, the suspects shot the family dog and took Ayvani Hope Perez with them. She was last seen being taken from the home in a gray Dodge, wearing her Star Wars pajamas.
Nguyen said the home invasion was apparently random, and that the family did not know the two men.“It didn’t appear that they knew each other,” he said. “They just moved in about a month ago.”
Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released sketches of the suspects that have posted below. Anyone with information on Perez — described as Hispanic, 4 feet, 9 inches tall and 93 pounds — or the suspects, should call 911 or Clayton County police at 678-610-4781.…Continue Reading
MARIETTA, GA – A Georgia man stands accused of hideous animal abuse after mutilating two puppies that a neighbor had asked him to keep at his house for a few days.
Robert Williams Davis, 38, was arrested shortly before midnight on Saturday. He was charged with two counts of aggravated cruelty to animals and three counts of tampering with evidence. According to the arrest warrant, Davis allegedly beheaded a 6-week-old black and white pit bull puppy late Saturday night with a pair of scissors.
“The puppy’s neck was completely severed with the head attached to the body by a single piece of skin,” an affidavit says. “The puppy’s body did not appear to contain blood, suggesting the puppy’s head was severed while the puppy was still alive.” That sound you may be hearing is my blood starting to boil.
The unfortunate pooch was decapitated by what was described as a “sawing” type motion, according to the police report. This is I ask, “Just five minutes, worm your honor, him and me alone?” [Pink Floyd reference in an article about a decapitated puppy?…Continue Reading
SAVANNAH, GA – Police have arrested a 19-year-old after they say he was filming himself having sex with a underage boy and possibly using Skype so others could watch him abuse the boy live over the Internet.
Brandon Fanning was busted after Homeland Security gave the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force in Effingham County a tip regarding Fanning’s online activities. They ended up arresting Fanning on charges of aggravated child molestation, child molestation and sexual exploitation of a child.
“The investigation revealed that Fanning had been molesting an underage boy and possessed videos of the sexual acts between he and the victim which he was sharing,” sheriff’s spokesman David Ehsanipoor said, adding that Fanning was also engaging in sexual acts with a dog.
“Some of the details we have seen on these videos we couldn’t even try to explain on television. It’s one of those disgusting situations and we wouldn’t be able to believe anyone would try to do something like that,” said Ehsanipoor.
More charges are pending against Fanning, but deputies would not say what they were related to – I’m guessing it may have something to do with the poor pooch. …Continue Reading
CLAYTON COUNTY, GA – A 13-year-old boy was shot and killed during an attempted carjacking late Monday night.
Steven Diaz-Galindo was helping put air in the tires of his sister’s pickup truck when a red SUV pulled up and two Hispanic men approached them with bandanas covering their faces. One man had a baseball bat while the other was carrying a shotgun.
The men demanded the keys to the truck and their belongings, said 22-year-old Samaria Diaz. She told police she and her brother offered no resistance and did everything the men instructed them to do. Things didn’t go to hell until one man ripped the jewelry off her neck and another tried starting the truck.
When the man was unable to get the pickup truck to crank, they became enraged. One man started the hitting the truck with the bat while the other started shooting out the truck’s windshield.
“When we heard the first shot, we tried to run,” said Diaz. “I took a few steps. He fell on the ground so I grabbed his hand so we could run together and he said, ‘Samaria, come back.…Continue Reading
Police were called to the Kmart at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday after someone saw the boy sitting inside the car, with all the windows rolled up, crying. When police arrived, they found the car sitting in direct sunlight and the boy sweating in the backseat holding a towel.
The doors were unlocked so the officers were able to get the boy out of the car. He told the officers that his mom left him in the car while she went shopping and had instructed him to get on the floor and cover up with a towel so no one would see him.
Police found Moore inside the Kmart and brought her back to the parking lot so she could retrieve her identification she said was in a small pink bag inside her car. While retrieving her ID, officers allegedly found a pill bottle that contained a variety of pills
She told them that the pills were Adderall, which was prescribed to her, but that they were just a variety of colors.…Continue Reading
Cobb County, GA – A 13-year-old girl missing for a month was found hiding in the room of a 21-year-old man she’d met over the Internet.
Cobb County College student Joshua Measroach, 21, apparently used social media to convince a 13 year old girl to come with him after communicating online for three months. On May 2nd, Joshua drove the 50 mile distance to the girl’s Newton County home to pick her up and take her with him back to his room in Cobb County. The incident was initially thought to be a runaway situation as several of the girl’s personal effects were taken from her room.
The girl’s parents helped police with the investigation noting she was an avid user of social media websites. It’s undoubtedly through her online activities that police were able to find the girl holed up with Joshua Measroach. It’s there the girl and Joshua had engaged in various sexual acts during her month-long stay. It’s unclear whether she was being held against her will, but considering she went willingly with him, I have a feeling she was there on her own accord – at least initially.…Continue Reading
ALPHARETTA, GA – Two employees at a Golden Corral in Georgia got themselves fired after a waitress poured scalding hot water on one of the cooks.
According to the incident report, 20-year-old Alexis Carter got into an argument with a cook, Marcus Benson. The argument was of a personal nature and, according to a statement released by Golden Corral, was not work related.
Whatever the argument was about, Carter was pissed.
As the restaurant’s patrons loudly mooed in frustration over the troughs not being loaded with honey-glazed giblets and deep fried fried chicken fast enough, Carter hit Marcus in the face with a dirty mop. She then hit him in the face with a pitcher she had filled with scalding hot water.
The resulting impact caused the boiling water to pour down the back of Marcus’ neck and a brown gravy enema to slip out of one diner’s butthole. Police reviewed surveillance footage of the incident before arresting Carter on a charge of battery. She has since bonded out of jail and has not provided a comment.…Continue Reading

BURKE COUNTY, Ga – One suspect is under arrest And authorities are hunting for a second after grave robberies that happened in Burke County last week.
Investigators say Ralph “Bubba” Hillis (you can’t make this shit up) was arrested Monday evening in Richmond County. His alleged accomplice, Jerry Atkinson, also of Waynesboro, is still wanted. Both men are charged with malicious removal of the dead from a grave.
The Old Church Cemetery’s caretakers said the scene was “heart-breaking,” after they discovered a toddler’s bones spilled from a casket and the uniform buried with a soldier in another plot strewn on the ground. In all, five graves were desecrated, according to police reports.
Burke County sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Cochran said that relic hunting is a possible motive. Or, Hillis and Atkinson could have just been trying to attract the attention of Buckwild producers for their own series.
A reward of more than $2,000 is being offered for information on the desecration at the Old Church Cemetery, or information on the whereabouts of Jerry Atkinson.…Continue Reading
Fulton County, GA – I had hoped there wouldn’t be any pit bull stories circulating this week, as I am tired of talking about them on our podcast, but a 2-year-old in Georgia was mauled to death by his family’s pit bull.
The attack happened shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday inside the boy’s home, when his mother went inside the bathroom. That’s when the family’s pit bull, owned by the mother for about eight years, decided to kill the toddler for reasons unknown.
“She advised it happened fast,” Parker said. “It was an obvious death once the mother came out of the restroom.”
A neighbor reported he heard the child’s mother after she ran outside of the home and rolled around on the ground screaming, “‘The dog killed the baby! The dog killed the baby!”
The dog remained inside the home for a couple of hours after the attack, possibly inside a bathroom. Animal control employees eventually removed the dog from the home and transported it to a shelter where it will be observed for several days.…Continue Reading
Columbus, GA – A 15-year-old with severe anger management issues got so angry with his parents for making him do chores instead of looking up a Bible verse, that he shot them both.
The incident happened on Friday, but started the day before when Kristi Lynn and Randal Askevich told their son to stop what he was doing and to complete a household chore.
The teen had been tasked with taking an old bed comforter to Goodwill, but the teen had his own, personal agenda at the top of his to-do list.
He was trying to do the Lord’s work and locate a Bible verse for a girl who had told him she wanted to be “saved.” (I really hope it was this one, as it is one of my favorites)
After much nagging, the teen finally did as he was instructed, but he was pissed. He stewed over it the rest of the day and into the next day while at school. He finally came to the conclusion that his only option was to shoot both of his parents.…Continue Reading
COLUMBUS, GA – Devin Brown, 13, was found hanging in is closet after reportedly being bullied at school and being labeled a snitch.
Devin moved to Columbus six months ago to live with his dad, Ray Brown, and started school at Rothschild Middle School. His father says the bullying started in November.
“He got jumped, or somebody beat him up,” said Brown, Devin’s father. “He came home one time and had some peanut butter pies he had made for school. When he walked through the door he had some pie left, and he had it all over him. Someone had jumped on him and smeared it all over him.”
Things escalated last week after Devin saw a girl at school with a butcher knife threatening to stab a teacher. Devin told his teacher and the girl was taken into custody. Afterwards, he was labeled as a snitch and told his father that 15-20 people wanted to jump on him.
On the night he told his father about this, his stepmother realized Devin wasn’t in his bed and began looking for him while on the phone with his older sister.…Continue Reading
Bryan County, GA – A 2-year-old-girl was killed in her backyard after seven seven dogs, all pit bulls or pit bull mixes, mauled her to death while her grandmother slept inside the house.
According to Bryan County Deputy Sheriff James Beatty, the girl’s grandmother woke up after hearing a commotion outside and discovered the dogs attacking 21-month-old Monica Renee Laminack in the backyard. She, along with other family members, rushed outside to pull the dogs off the girl, but she was already dead.
“When we got here and spoke to EMS, they told us that when they got here, she was already cold. There was nothing they could do,” Beatty said.
Police are not sure why the girl was alone with the dogs or what made them suddenly attack her. Beatty said the girl’s 12-year-old brother may have taken her out to play and forgot she was out there, or she may have gone out through a doggy door.
“Apparently what happened is the child and the dogs were all in the house together and exited the house through the doggie door,” Bryan County Sheriff Clyde Smith said during a press conference Thursday morning in Pembroke.…Continue Reading
