NEW ORLEANS, LA – Police have arrested Kisha Carter on animal cruelty charges after they say she killed two puppies by tossing them from the third floor of a motel balcony.
The SPCA said they received a report that a guest at the Crystal Inn tossed the puppies from a balcony at the motel. Another guest found the injured puppies and rushed them to a nearby animal hospital. One of the puppies died on the way, while the other died at the hospital.
SPCA said they were able to identify Carter as the person responsible after interviewing the guest that found the puppies and reviewing the motel’s surveillance footage.
They worked with New Orleans police and Carter was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of simple cruelty to animals. She is currently being held without a set bond on a municipal attachment – which, in Louisiana, usually means she failed to appear to court on a past charge.
If Kisha Carter is convicted, the most she would be looking at is a fine up to $1,000 and a possible six months behind bars.…Continue Reading
On Sunday, March 10, 2013, at around 4:45A.M., a man and his girlfriend noticed three or four unknown black males standing outside of the Friendly Bar, a gay bar located on the corner of Chartres and Marigny Streets. The man said one of the males approached him and tried to strike up a conversation, but while he was trying to tell the man he wasn’t interested in talking, the suspects started following a man in his 30s who walked by them.
The man and his girlfriend then watched as the three subjects began beating the man with bottles. The attack was captured on surveillance video and showed the three black males beating the man with bottles, even when he was on the ground. One of the suspects can be seen walking away, then returning to kick the victim in the head.…Continue Reading
Westwego, LA - Linda Henry, 54, lost an eye, an ear and both arms, after she was attacked by three pit bulls she and her boyfriend had raised since they were puppies.
Henry and her boyfriend, Clarence Allen, have raised four pit bulls inside their home and treated them like their own kids. On Wednesday afternoon, Henry walked into her home and within minutes she was fighting for her life.
For reasons unknown at this time, Zeus, a 4-year-old male; Brutus, a 2-year-old male; and Ghost, a 4-year-old female, attacked Henry. A neighbor heard Henry yelling and called police while another tried getting inside the home, only to be attacked by one of the dogs.
When police arrived, they found Henry being mauled by all three dogs. “They could hear the woman screaming in the house,” said Police Chief Dwayne “Poncho” Munch. “They saw all three dogs biting her.”
Two of the dogs were shot and killed after they turned on the officers. A third dog was shot while still mauling Henry. A fourth dog, Big Lucy, had been in a back room and was not seen attacking Henry.…Continue Reading
An obviously offended resident put in a call to 911 at about 9:30 Friday night to complain about a butt-nekkid pedestrian who appeared to be masturbating.
Officers caught up with the alleged wanker, identified as Osmar Hernandez, in the 1500 block of Huey P. Long (tee-hee).
Police say Osmar was nekkid from the waist down and holding his shorts in his hand.
When asked if he would kindly re-clothe himself, Osmar reportedly ignored their commands. Instead, police say, he began singing and squeezin’ – his pud, that is.
Got my fingers crossed that the dash-cam video of this particular incident finds it’s way to national television.
Gretna Assistant Police Chief Anthony Christiana said officers did not recognize the tune.
Osmar eventually redressed and was promptly carted off to jail. Officers noted he had trouble keeping his balance and smelled of alcohol.
I wish the arresting officers had been able to pick up the tune… the curiosity is killing me.…Continue Reading
Winnsboro, LA – Sharmeka Moffitt, the 20-year-old woman who claimed she had been set ablaze by three men in white hoodies, apparently fabricated the whole story, as new evidence suggests she actually set herself on fire.
On Sunday, October 21st, Moffitt called 911 to report what police believed, at the time, to be a racially motivated attack in which three men doused Moffitt with lighter fluid, set her on fire, and then scrawled “KKK” and an ethnic slur on the side of her car in…ummmm…toothpaste? At the time, she said she did not know whether the men were black or white.
Moffitt was able to extinguish the flames using a nearby spigot, but had already suffered serious burns on over half her body. She was taken to LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for treatment. Several law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, began investigating the incident as a hate crime.
Now, several days after the incident, police have released the fact that Moffitt’s fingerprints were found on both the lighter fluid bottle in question and the lighter used to ignite it, proving, more or less, that she self-immolated. Answers are a bit scarce at the moment, as Moffitt remains in critical condition, unable to answer the many questions investigators have for her.…Continue Reading
WALKER, LA – A man in Louisiana has been arrested after he allegedly stabbed his pregnant wife in the abdomen and then cut out their unborn child.
On Tuesday, police responded to an emergency call at the home of 31-year-old Jeffrey Reynolds and his pregnant wife. Once there, they would find that Reynolds had done the unthinkable to his pregnant wife.
“His wife was on the floor he took a sharp instrument and actually had cut her open – her stomach area and pulled the baby out.” said Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard.
The 28-year-old woman, who was 7 1/2 months pregnant, was rushed to the hospital where she is currently in stable condition. Sadly, the baby died despite attempts to save it.
“I’ve seen crime scenes before but this one was very challenging, I mean they all are, but this one was one that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this,” said Ard.
Reynolds was still on the scene when police arrived and was very combative with the arresting officers.…Continue Reading
New Orleans, LA – This happened last week, but it has been siting in draft for days and I am tired of looking at it. A 19-year-old LSU student has been charged with attempted murder after police say she tried to kill her mother for inheritance money.
Last week, 52-year-old Sherri Boover received a knock on her door at 4.30am. When she looked through the peephole, she was greeted by her smiling daughter, Nicole Boover. But when she opened the door, Nicole pulled out a handgun and aimed it at her. The quick thinking mother immediately slammed the door shut before Nicole fired several rounds into the door and ran off.
Uninjured, Sherri called police and informed them they could probably find Nicole at the LSU dorms where she was currently staying. Outside of the dorm, police would find Nicole’s car with 18-year-old Nathan Yuhas, a friend and classmate of Nicole’s, sitting inside it. They would find Nicole in her dorm room.
Yuhas would spill his guts pretty quickly, telling investigators that Nicole had enlisted his help in murdering her parents in order to collect a $500,000 inheritance from which he would get a $50,000 cut.…Continue Reading
Montgomery County, LA – Police in Louisiana have arrested 49-year-old Duane Parker after he allegedly sent sexual messages to more than a dozen preteens on Facebook, including a video of him masturbating while saying what he would like to do to a seventh-grade girl.
Parker got busted after an investigation into his online activities that started when the mother of one of the girls he contacted authorities after seeing messages from an unfamiliar name on her daughter’s Facebook page. The girl told her mother that she only accepted his friend request due to how many mutual friends that had in common.
His modus operandi seemed to be friending a young girl on Facebook, along with any of her friends, then begin innocently messaging them before bringing out the big guns. “He’ll chat with them for a while but then after befriending them he’ll start sending pornographic videos to them, whether it was video or still images,” said Captain Mark Seals.
By time investigators got involved, Parker had deleted his Facebook account and created a new one. Law enforcement discovered his new Facebook account and seen Parker had attempted to contact several more young girls.…Continue Reading
RAYNE, La. - Police have charged 26-year-old Shaqueta McDade with homicide after her four children died in a mobile home fire Saturday night.
According to 26-year-old Shaqueta McDade’s neighbors, she had a bad habit of leaving her five young children home alone. One neighbor described finding McDade’s 2-year-old wandering the streets at midnight last month and calling police.
Another neighbor said that McDade’s left her kids alone inside their mobile home last Friday night, prompting them to call police as well. The kids were removed from the home, but returned to McDade the next day. That night, McDade once again left her children home alone.
This time the end result would be far more tragic than a simple call to police and yet another opportunity for McDade to leave her kids unsupervised. That night, a fire broke out in the living room of the home and soon the entire trailer was engulfed in flames.
Neighbors tried to get McDade’s children out of the trailer, but were driven back from the intense heat. Jamari McDade, 8; Amous Mouton Jr., 7; LaShay McDade, 5, and Brian Steiner, 2, would all perish in the fire.…Continue Reading
SHREVEPORT, LA — A 10-month-old boy suffered severe head trauma after his mother allegedly threw him through an open car window while arguing with the child’s father over money.
Police say that on Saturday, 29-year old Carmen Paul was arguing with Felthon Hall while holding their son. Fall was sitting inside a car and claims Paul got so angry that she threw the boy through the open car window in a fit of rage.
Hall was able to catch his son, but not before the child hit his head on the car’s metal door frame. It must have been one hell of a throw because after Hall rushed the boy to the hospital, doctors would find he was suffering from a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain.
The baby is currently in the hospital in stable condition while his mother is in jail. She reportedly walked away from the scene after giving her son the heave-ho, but was picked up later and charged with second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.
She’s lucky she didn’t kill the boy, especially since his skull hasn’t even fully developed yet.…Continue Reading
The FBI say that over an eight year period, 66-year-old Charles Edward “Chuck” Reese, the CFO for Champagne Beverage, paid two women $750, 000 for sexually explicit videos of themselves along with their children, relatives, and even their pets.
The investigation into Charles Reese’s activities began when Photobucket.com alerted authorities to inappropriate media that had been uploaded by a user. One video showed a woman engaged in a sex act with a boy around 2-years-old. One subpoena later, and the FBI were able to identify the woman as a 28-year-old living in Vidor, Texas. The boy in the video was her own son.
The woman also happened to be dead, having passed away in a hospital for reasons that have not been disclosed. Investigators were able to retrieve the woman’s cell phone regardless, and found that it contained even more sexually explicit videos involving other children.…Continue Reading
Destrehan, LA — A man died at his own Wrestlemania party Sunday night after his teen cousin placed him in a choke hold.
According to reports, 24-year-old Stephen Arceneaux III had invited friends to his home Sunday night to watch a gay wrestling soap opera called Wrestlemania 28. At some point during the festivities, Arceneaux and his 14-year-old cousin began wrestling on an inflated mattress.
During the bout, the teenager, who weighed 110 pounds, got 220-pound Arceneaux in a rear-naked choke hold.
For those of you unaware, this popular move is when you get behind an opponent and wrap yourself around them like an addiction. You then place a forearm around their neck while pushing on the back of their head with your other arm, subsequently cutting off their air supply.
Witnesses told investigators that Stephen Arceneaux had informed everyone he was no pussy and would not “tap out” or signal the teen to release the hold. He kept his word.
After 30 to 40 seconds of not being able to breathe, witnesses say that Arceneaux turned blue from lack of oxygen.…Continue Reading
NEW ORLEANS, LA – A woman in Louisiana is forcing her 13-year-old daughter to wear an embarrassing shirt that reads “Hide your money. Hide your clothes. Hide everything. ‘Cuz I’m A Thief.” after the teen was caught shoplifting.
Danaka Walker said she was sick to her stomach the day she had to pick up her daughter, Aaroneisha Celestin, from a juvenile detention center. The girl was there after getting caught stealing a $10 shirt from a local shopping center.
As part of her punishment, her mother is forcing her to wear the new shirt whenever she leaves the house and must do so until her court proceedings are over.
“I feel like if you’re going to embarrass me by stealing, I’m gonna show you what it’s like to be embarrassed. Everybody’s gonna know that you stole,” Walker said. “I work too hard for her to steal, and I’m not gonna have no thief living with me. I refuse to have a thief living with me.”
Walker says she doesn’t want the judge to throw her in jail, especially since it’s her first offense, but she is not looking for leniency from the judge as she wants her daughter to learn her lesson.…Continue Reading
BATON ROUGE, LA – A teenager robbed an 89-year-old man on Sunday, and was rewarded with the elderly man’s wallet, a bullet to the leg and a trip to jail.
According to police, the victim was washing his car Sunday evening when he was approached by 18-year-old Riki Ingram. The teen demanded money and grabbed for the older man’s wallet.
The man wasn’t gonna let his wallet go that easily and began fighting with Ingram. In response, Ingram pulled out a handgun and fired it into the air. When he put the gun back in his pocket, he accidentally fired it again and shot himself in the leg.
That’s when police say 17-year-old Terrione Booker pulled up in a vehicle and picked up the wounded teen. Police would pull them over later and charge them both with attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery.
Westlake, LA — Twenty-eight-year-old bible school teacher/hottie Heather N. Daughdrill has found herself on the business end of the Louisiana justice system having been arrested for inappropriate sexual contact with a 13-year-old boy.
It was reported that text messages discovered by the 13-year-old boy’s parents prompted a call to authorities in early November. The subsequent investigation determined that Daughdrill had ‘inappropriate sexual contact’ with the boy on ‘multiple occasions between June and October’ after ‘picking him up from school without the parents’ knowledge.’
Daughdrill reportedly met the boy while she was working as a teacher/aide at a Summer Bible school camp the boy had attended.
“So when Corinthians talks about people who won’t inherit the Kingdom of God, it is talking about people who do that stuff that we just did, right?”
Daughdrill was arrested on November 28 and charged with 4 counts of carnal knowledge of a juvenile; 8 counts of sexual battery; 3 counts of 2nd degree kidnapping; 1 count contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile; and 1 count indecent behavior with a juvenile.…Continue Reading
NAPOLEONVILLE, La. – A couple of men were arrested Sunday after they tracked down a rape suspect and then proceeded to beat him with a baseball bat.
According to reports, police were called to a home after someone said they woke up to find 37-year-old Telly Ross (pictured) sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl who was staying in the home. Ross fled the area before police arrived, and an arrest warrant was issued.
Police would find Ross later that same day while responding to a fight in progress on the same street as the alleged sexual assault. The fight turned out to be Ross on the shit end of the street justice stick. He had been found by 25-year-old Everton Smith and 33-year-old Ramon Johnson who were doling out some punishment with a baseball bat.
Ross was transported to the hospital where he was treated and released before being taken into custody on a charge of simple rape. Smith and Johnson were each charged with aggravated battery. It may not be 100 percent correct, but I did some quick checking and if convicted, Ross is looking at 25 years.…Continue Reading
The incident happened on the campus playground of an unnamed school where a 6-year-old girl was doing something that really got under 65-year-old Mildred Russ’ skin and had her losing any semblance of patience or control.
First she wrapped her legs around the girl to keep her from moving then tied the girl’s sweater around her neck, squeezing it every time she tried. Russ finally dragged the girl to the principal’s office, pulling her out of her shoes in the process.
For her actions, Russ was arrested on a charge of cruelty to a juvenile and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. I know some will come in here and back this teacher in some fashion, citing disrespectful kids, lack of parenting, etc, etc. But I don’t choke disrespectful kids in the grocery store or in my neighborhood, whether they deserved it or not. If I ever do, I would deserve to be in jail just like Mrs.…Continue Reading
Raceland, Lousiana – In one of the saddest stories I’ve read today, a 4-year-old boy was killed after falling off the back of a tractor and then ran over by a grass cutter the tractor was pulling behind it.
Last Thursday night, Logan Howes and his 7-year-old brother were riding on a tractor driven by their grandmother’s boyfriend. It was something they did all the time whenever they came over to visit, family say, and an activity that others in the community participate in with their own grandchildren.
But on this occasion, Barry Medeiros was making a turn and hit a bump at the same time. The older boy held on, but little Howes fell off and into the blades of a grass cutting attachment and died of multiple traumatic injuries. One neighbor described what happened immediately after they realized something had went wrong.
“We heard them yell so we walked over there and we saw Barry, the driver of the tractor crying over there and my dad went over, hugged him, comforted him and asked him what’s wrong Barry, he started just mumbling jibberish, mainly just about how he’s sorry.”
Authorities have ruled his death as an accident, an accident that has others thinking twice about letting children ride with them in such a fashion in the future.…Continue Reading
THIBODAUX, La. – Police have arrested a man they say raped a 12-year-old boy in a Burger King bathroom.
Police say the boy was taken to the hospital by his parents where he was treated and released. Based off the description the victim gave police, they were able to identify and arrest 51-year-old Terry Sanchez.
This wouldn’t be the first story this year involving a kid who was sexually assaulted in a restaurant’s bathroom, but this particular story is missing some key info.
If the charges are correct, I’d like to know how the two met. One article does mention the two had never met before Friday night’s encounter, but they don’t state if the the 12-year-old simply ran into Sanchez when he went to use the restroom or if the victim was at the Burger King with his parents.
I’ll post any further details if I find any. In the meantime, Sanchez has been charged with aggravated rape and is being held on a $250,000 bond.…Continue Reading
KENNER, La. — Good news never lasts long around here. Police have arrested a man after they say he got so aggravated with his 3-month-old baby, that he slammed the infant against a wall, likely causing permanent neurological defects.
Tyler Jonathan Eastgate, 22, said he found his son found his son in his room having trouble breathing, seizing and losing consciousness.
But doctor’s determined the infant’s injuries were the result of blunt force trauma from having been thrown down and contacted police.
The baby had bleeding on the brain, bruises to his cheek, chin and chest, as well as several scratches and bruises to his neck in the shape of a hand.
Presented with this information, Eastgate finally admitted to police that while babysitting his son, he lost it when the boy would not stop crying.
First he threw the baby against the wall, causing him to strike his head. Not surprisingly, since babies usually don’t like being thrown into hard surfaces, the boy cried even more. So Eastgate said he struck his son in the face before throwing him into his crib, causing the boy to hit his head a second time.…Continue Reading
