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
The teen wasn’t the demon’s first victim, either. The first was 63-year-old Gerald Myers earlier in the day. The 90-lb Hell-Hound attacked the man, pulled him to the ground and dragged him down the street. Myers ended up with 11 stitches, but only because the guy knew a demon’s weak spot – the window to the soul.
“He switched legs and got on my right leg. And that’s when I stuck my fingers in his eyes and he let me go,” Myers said.
A police sergeant got the call regarding the attack on Myers and went in search for the beast. When he found the dog, it was already making a second attempt at a sacrifice for Satan. Tyrell Henry had been walking to school when the skies grew dark and the air dropped by 15 degrees. That’s when the monster attacked, seemingly coming from nowhere.…Continue Reading
Cahokia, IL - Mario Hunt, a 35-year-old coach and teacher’s aide for special needs students at Cahokia High School, is currently behind bars after being accused of sexually abusing a male student and knowingly exposing him to HIV.
Initially, the school received complaints about Hunt making inappropriate posts on Myspace. Not having been on Myspace for years, I decided to do a little investigative journalism and find these alleged pictures/postings.
But, after 10 minutes of not being able to successfully navigate the “new” Myspace, I was left feeling old and angry. So, I will have to leave it to your terrifying imagination, my dear reader.
The allegations against Hunt quickly escalated about 10 days ago when a student and his mother asked police to investigate the conduct between the suspect and other young boys.
It was discovered that Hunt had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy from January-June 2011 and knowingly exposed the boy to HIV. The relationship with the teen has not been released, but charges say that Hunt “holds a position of trust authority or supervision” in relation to the minor.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Alexius Keys, 20, showed how happy she was that her ex-boyfriend had moved on after their failed relationship by turning the man’s new girlfriend into a screaming speed bump.
According to reports, the incident happened last Thursday after Keys saw her former boyfriend driving around with his new girlfriend and intentionally rear-ended their vehicle.
Once the couple got out of the car, Assistant State’s Attorney Anthony Gattuso said Keys drove in reverse across a lawn and struck the new girl. Keys ended up running the woman over and dragging her several feet under the vehicle.
The woman suffered a broken arm, back fractures, a bruised lung, rib fractures and had a layer of skin scraped from her lower back and buttocks.
Alexius Keys was arrested on an attempted murder charge, and was ordered held in lieu of $750,000 bail.
During her bail hearing, Keys collapsed, then was taken out of court while shouting, “I love y’all!” and “forgive me!” to her family.…Continue Reading
Palatine, IL – Three teenage girls have been arrested and charged in connection with the assault of a 12-year-old boy with a ketchup bottle during a home invasion and robbery.
Last Wednesday night, a teenage girl went to the door of the boy’s apartment and claimed to be a friend of his sister. When the boy told the girl his sister was not home, the girl left.
The same girl returned 10 minutes later accompanied by three other teenage girls and asked to use the bathroom. The boy let them in the apartment and after he turned his back, one of the girls hit him in the back an empty glass ketchup bottle.
According to police, two of the girls then went into the kitchen and bedrooms, stealing $50, jewelry and two cell phones before leaving the apartment. Police were called after the boy’s sister returned home to find her brother injured.
He was taken to the hospital with multiple, non-life-threatening cuts, police said. The boy’s sister was able to identify the girls as former friends.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Angela Petrov and Rodrigo Rodriguez have been accused of suffocating their 5-month-old daughter, then placing her limp body in a playpen before having sex.
At around 11 a.m. Friday morning, the couple noticed their daughter, Angelina, was ‘stiff and unresponsive’ inside her playpen. They tried throwing water on the baby’s face and attempted CPR before calling 911. Angelina was taken to the hospital where she is currently on life support.
Doctors would discover that Angelina was suffering from brain swelling, a blown pupil due to a lack of oxygen, and a skull fracture from a past incident. She’s still alive, but currently has limited or no brain activity.
Police interviewed the couple and Rodriguez eventually admitted he and Petrov had been drinking Hennessy in the room where Angelina was sleeping. When the baby woke up and would not stop crying, Rodriguez admitted to employing a method that is fairly effective in getting an infant to stop crying. Or breathing. Or functioning at any level of intelligence higher than a potato.
He said he used his hand to cover Angelina’s mouth and nose until she stopped crying.…Continue Reading
CHICAGO, IL – Let it not be said that superstition and lore have no place in modern-day baseball, as evidenced by Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts receiving a package in the mail at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon. The contents? A severed goat’s head.
The goat’s head, in all likelihood, is a reference to the infamous curse of the billy goat, a piece of baseball history that dates back to the 1945 World Series, and an incident in which Sam Sianis, a Cubs fan, was asked to leave a game against the rival Detroit Tigers due to the smell of his billy goat. Lost in years of retelling is whether the goat was the man’s date, or had its own ticket.
According to Julian Green, a team spokesman, a package was dropped at Wrigley Field’s Gate K on Wednesday, addressed to Ricketts. The package was apparently delivered by an unknown person, and did not appear to have been delivered by the USPS. Police were called at around 2:30, when it was determined that officials had on their hands an, “intimidating package.” Bet that was a heckuva phone call.…Continue Reading
Janet Strickland, 64, was charged with one count each of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm after her husband, William Strickland, 72, was killed in a hail of bullets in front of their home by his 19-year-old grandson, whose name is also William Strickland.
Janet Strickland, who knows about doing things the Chicago way, was not present at her bond hearing on Saturday. She was being held at a local hospital where she was being treated for lung disease and high blood pressure, according to the Chicago Tribune. Her bail was set at $500,000.
In full-on Capone mode, granny Strickland plotted with her teenage grandson, an admitted member of the Black P. Stones street gang, to kill her husband because she was “sick” of Strickland and wanted him dead, said Assistant State’s Attorney Jacqueline Kwilos.
“They discussed on numerous occasions killing the victim,” Kwilos said during the hearing.…Continue Reading
Galesburg, IL – Ashiya Ferguson, the owner of the pit bull that killed 7-year-old Ryan Maxwell earlier this month, told reporters that she wants to die.
Lot of details out there regarding what led to this tragic incident, but still no word on what triggered the actual attack. After reading several articles (all of which will be linked) here is what is known so far.
On March 1st, Sarah Mead let her 7-year-old son, Ryan Maxwell, go roller skating for the first time – not knowing it would be his last. He would be spending the night at the home of Ashiya Ferguson, the wife of Sarah’s brother, along with Ashiya’s two boys, after going roller skating. The next day, Ryan was outside playing in Ashiya’s backyard when he was viciously mauled to death by the woman’s pit bull.
“He got so excited. He was excited to go skating and excited to spend the night with some other kids,” Sarah said, sobbing. “I let him go, and then this happened.”
The events that happened up to the attack have been mostly detailed by Ashiya and her mother, Susan, who were home when the attack occured.…Continue Reading
Skokie, IL — The pleasant looking woman you see to the left is 51-year-old Elaine Cook – she’s behind bars on a $100,000 bond for allegedly biting off a significant chunk of her boyfriend’s tongue. Yum.
According to prosecutors, Cook and her 47-year-old boyfriend of 10 months had just returned home after a Valentine’s Day date when shit got ugly.
After arguing, Cook demanded that her boyfriend vacate the premises. He tried to oblige, but made the mistake of trying to kiss and make up before leaving.
“He told her they should stop fighting and went to kiss her,” Assistant State’s Attorney Eve Reilly said, “and she bit off a large portion of his tongue.”
The man ran to the kitchen sink. Cook followed, prosecutors say, and placed the chunk of mouth meat in her hand and tossed it on the kitchen counter. Nonchalantly, I’m sure. Dude put the severed tongue in a bag of ice and called 911.
Cook’s been booked on charges of aggravated domestic battery.
Unfortunately for the boyfriend, due to an “inadequate blood supply,” the tongue could not be reattached.…Continue Reading
Naperville, IL – Police have arrested 35-year-old Bryan Woldman after he drove to a theater, where he thought he was meeting a 12-year-old girl for a sexual encounter.
When Woldman arrived at the theater, he was cock blocked by members of the Naperville Police Department, who arrested Woldman and charged him with indecent solicitation of a minor, traveling to meet a minor for a sexual encounter and grooming.
Police were aware of Woldman after an alert mother contacted them to report her 12-year-old had been engaged in inappropriate communications with Woldman “via Facebook, cell phone, text, and Skype,” police said in a release.
So for the next few weeks, the Naperville Police High Technology Crimes Unit began an investigation in which Woldman “exchanged sexually explicit text messages with what he thought was the 12-year-old female” that ultimately led to Woldman thinking he would be meeting the girl for sex.
At around 7:47 p.m. Friday, Woldman allegedly traveled from his home to the theater where he was arrested without incident. He has been transferred to Will County jail with a bond set at $1 million.…Continue Reading
Matteson, IL – Xenia Jaimes and her parents are facing a slew of very serious charges after police say they kidnapped and beat Xenia’s former boyfriend after he threatened to post nude images of the 18-year-old.
According to court records, the 19-year-old victim was having a casual sexual relationship with 18-year-old Xenia Jaimes. At some point during their relationship, Xenia stripped during a video chat and allowed the victim to photograph her nude with his cell phone.
Things between the two turned sour after Xenia went to a social networking website and accused the victim of stealing her iPad. The teen claims he had taken the device by mistake and had immediately returned it. When he discovered her online accusation, he threatened to post some of the nude photographs of Xenia he had if she didn’t call him to talk about the alleged theft.
On Jan 15, Xenia texted the victim and told him to come to her family’s house so they could talk. Once the teen arrived at the home, Xenia led him down to the basement where he was ambushed by five people wearing ski masks and holding metal pipes and, in the case of one of the masked individuals, a walking crutch.…Continue Reading
Crest Hill, IL – A man has been arrested after “accidentally” running over his wife in their garage. Police say the man called 911 for assistance and was seen stomping on the woman’s face when paramedics arrived.
Jerry Nichols, 62, apparently called 911 Saturday morning and told the dispatcher he had accidentally ran over his wife, 55-year-old Diane Nichols, with his Honda sedan.
Paramedics quickly responded to the couple’s address, and when they pulled up, witnessed Mr. Nichols stomping on the woman’s face. Why? Because without the proper distance and speed, a Honda isn’t going to do shit, except maybe break a bone or two.
Diane Nichols was pronounced dead at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center later that day.
Police say they have yet to determine a motive. My guess? Dude was pissed.
In court Monday, Nichols’ attorney argued that Nichols, who has no previous criminal history, had been a longtime employee of the LaGrange Public Works Department before retiring. Murphy also said Nichols is also a Vietnam veteran, has lived his entire life in Illinois and was married to his wife for 12 years before her untimely death.…Continue Reading
JOLIET, IL – Police say that three of the four young adults charged with the strangulation and attempted dismemberment of two men were found playing video games in the home where the victims’ bodies were found.
“This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,” Police Chief Mike Trafton said. “Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.”
On Thursday, Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins, both 22, were found strangled in a home after police received a call informing them that they may find two dead guys inside. The caller wasn’t lying, as police found Glover and Rankins dead when they entered the home, as well as evidence that someone tried dismembering their bodies.
Police also found 19-year-old Adam Landerman, 18-year-old Alisa Massaro and 24-year-old Joshua Miner inside the home. The trio were very much alive and were playing video games. According to Trafton, they were “very much surprised” when police walked in on them.…Continue Reading
Meet Lawrence Adamczyk – he made his first appearance here at the D’D in June of 2011, when he was accused of exposing himself and groping men at the X-Sport Fitness Club in St. Charles.
Larry (not even gonna try and type dude’s last name more than once… it’s like a tongue twister for my fingers) was apparently found guilty in that case, as a recent update mentions he was paroled in December of 2012 and was being monitored electronically. The same update also points out that Larry had previous arrests dating back to 2005, all similar and sexual in nature. But for whatever reason, he was not required to register as a sex offender.
Larry was confronted by security personnel at Riverside Brookfield High School Saturday morning while wandering about in a hallway that was closed and off-limits because of a boys’ swim meet, police said. The police were called and responding officers found Larry sitting on the bleachers, watching the competition.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – An woman in Illinois is in jail on an aggravated domestic battery charge after she ran over her boyfriend and burned the skin off his testicles.
Christine Meyers, 23, got into a fight with her boyfriend Friday night after picking him up from a bar. When they got back to their home, her boyfriend got out of the car and, for some unknown reason, laid down in front of it.
Did he pass out? Was he preventing her from leaving? Who knows? What is known is that Meyers took this opportunity to remove some of the balls her boyfriend was displaying by getting in front of a car driven by a woman.
Prosecutors say she did this by intentionally running him over.
The boyfriend was not killed, but for a little while I’m betting he was wished he had been. That’s because aside from the severe burns he suffered to his chest and back, the skin was also burned off his testicles. In case you didn’t know, for a woman, the smell of her man’s testicles sizzling on her car’s exhaust pipe is the smell of victory.…Continue Reading
BIG ROCK, IL – A man in Illinois returned home to find that his 44-year-old wife had been killed by a mastiff they had adopted from a family member a week earlier.
The body of Dawn Brown was discovered by her husband Monday afternoon. She had suffered fatal bite wound to the neck, apparently inflicted by a Mastiff they had recently brought into the home.
Brown had been alone in the home with the dog and the couple’s two other dogs, a boxer and a pit bull mix. Her husband tried to resuscitate Brown, but she had died had died hours before he found her.
Police are investigating what may have prompted the attack and if the animal, which weighed an estimated 130 to 140 pounds, had shown any violent behavior in the past.
The previous owners say the dog had never been violent and that they only gave the dog up because they simply couldn’t care for it any longer.
Dawn was firefighter and paramedic for the Bristol Kendall Fire Protection District, and her co-workers are the ones who responded to the call. “To pronounce one of your own dead is probably one of the hardest things we have to do,” said Big Rock Fire Cpt.…Continue Reading
Naperville, Ill – A woman in Illinois has been charged with two counts of murder after she stabbed two children to death because voices told her it was the only way to save their souls.
I’ve collected the following details from a few news articles, but from what I can gather, 40-year-old Elzbieta Plackowska was babysitting 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski at her home, along with her her 8-year-old son, Justin Plackowska. At some point on Tuesday, Plackowska packed up the children and drove to a nearby church before driving to Olivia’s home. During this time, she argued on the phone with her husband because she had recently lost her father and wanted to return to her native Poland, but her husband wanted to stay here.
On top of all that, according to Plackowska, she was hearing demonic voices that were informing her that the children’s souls were in peril and that the only way to save them would be to
volunteer at a nearby homeless shelter stab the children to death. Instead of disobeying the demonic voices, she stabbed Justin and Olivia to death, along with two dogs.…
Benton, IL – Police have arrested the drummer for The Core of Your Nightmares, a death metal band you’ve probably never heard of until now, accusing him of producing child pornography to share on the Internet.
Martin Evanick aka Vlad Evanick (Facebook), was arrested on Oct 19 and charged with the production of child pornography after prosecutors say the 31-year-old took photographs of himself engaged in sexual acts with a minor, including close-up pictures of the minor’s genitalia.
These photos were taken between April 1, 2012 and April 21, 2012, but the federal indictment states Evanick has been creating child porn for more than two years.
Evanick is being held without bond pending trial as investigators feel he is a flight risk and a danger to the community. They also fear he might threaten, injure or intimidate a victim.
If convicted, Evanick faces between 15 and 30 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and term of supervised release between five years and life. Someone from the band commented on their Facebook page that they had absolutely no idea and are just as appalled as the rest of us.…Continue Reading
Toulon, IL – A teen mother in Illinois has been accused of leaving her infant alongside a rural road where she remained for twelve hours after the mother told police her baby had been abducted.
Last Thursday, an Amber Alert was issued for 3-week-old Mia Graci Thompson. Her mother, 19-year-old Kendra Meaker, told police that she had left Mia and her 11-month old sister in the car while she walked into a Toulon post office to mail a package. She informed them that it wasn’t until she had already driven away that she noticed Mia was missing.
Sheriff Jimmie Dison said he figured Meaker’s story was bullshit from the beginning, but with no evidence to the contrary, he didn’t have any choice but to request an Amber Alert. It wasn’t until twelve hours later that Meaker finally told the truth and admitted that she drove outside Toulon that morning and placed her daughter on the side of a rural road.
After volunteer searchers were dispatched to the area, Mia was found after a pair of searchers heard her cries.…Continue Reading
