Nashuah, NH – The 2-year-old boy who suffered a head injury two weeks ago has died and now his mother, 21-year-old Unique Gould, is facing manslaughter charges.
Prosecutors say that on April 25, Unique used her hand to repeatedly hit Devon on the head, face, and buttocks. ”Gould made admissions that she ‘blacked out’ at one point, and admitted to hitting (him) very hard,” said Detective Marc Anderson.
Following the beating, Devon became unresponsive and slept for 18 to 20 hours. Being the brilliant woman she is, she tried to rouse Devon by shaking him and placing him in the shower. Gold only called 911 after family members and roommates threatened to do so themselves if she didn’t.
Devon was rushed to a Massachusetts hospital where it was determined he had a catastrophic brain injury and was suffering from inter-cranial bleeding. Unique was arrested and charged with first-degree assault.
Those charges would be upgraded to manslaughter on Monday after Devon passed away upon removal from life support last week. As of this time, no explanation has been provided as to why she did this, not that there could possibly be a reason that would justify the unthinkable violence she inflicted on her son.…Continue Reading
PHILADELPHIA, MS.- Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says Duane John, 34, has been charged with six felony counts of DUI manslaughter after a crash this weekend that killed an adult and his five children.
Authorities say John was drunk when the Dodge Durango he was driving went off the road, down an embankment, and into a rain-swollen creek shortly after midnight Saturday. Also in the SUV were five of John’s children along with three other adults. No one was wearing their seat belts.
Aside from John, only two other people survived the crash; Deanna Jim, who is the children’s mother, and Dale Chickaway. Killed were Dasyanna John, 9; Duane John, 8; Bobby John, 7; Quinton John, 4; Kekaimeas John, 18 months; and Chickaway’s wife, Dianne Lewis Chickaway, 37.
Waddel said that all of the deceased were still inside the vehicle at the time of their recovery, and that he believes they all drowned.
Duane John was charged after being released from the Neshoba County General Hospital where he’d been hospitalized for hypothermia and water inhalation.…Continue Reading
Malverne, NY – The parents of a 17-year-old boy who crashed his car and killed four of his friends back in October are now being charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle for allowing him to drive without a valid driver’s license.
On October 8th, 17 year old Joseph Beer was driving with his four 17-18 year old friends as passengers. Around 3:40 am, he was doing about 110 mph when he lost control of his vehicle on a stretch of road called “Dead Man’s Curve.” The car flew into the woods and split in two after hitting a tree. Chris Khan, Peter Kanhai and Darian Ramnarine, all 18, and Neal Rajapa, 17, were all killed in the crash, none of whome were wearing their seatbelt. Joseph was wearing a seat belt and survived.
He is now facing 25 years in prison after being charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated vehicular homicide, vehicular manslaughter in the first degree, four counts of manslaughter in the second degree, and a whole host of other charges that are just different configurations of the words manslaughter, degree and reckless. The driving while intoxicated charge is creating a bit of a stir because he had not been drinking, but did have marijuana in his system.…Continue Reading
OCALA, FL – A teenager has been charged with manslaughter after he he killed his friend with a sucker punch to the face.
According to reports, 19-year-old Matthew Gunter was in a Walmart when he received a call from someone who is probably feeling like shit right now. The person called to inform Gunter that his friend, 23-year-old Travis Henshaw, was sleeping with his girlfriend.
Angry, Gunter left the store and drove to a home where Henshaw was staying. Witnesses say Gunter confronted Henshaw by delivering a sucker punch to Hensaw’s face. As a result, Henshaw’s brain ping-ponged around in his skull after his head head hit the side of a door and then a concrete floor.
While Henshaw was on the ground, Gunter stood over him and asked why he slept with his “old lady.” After Gunter fled the scene, witnesses say Henshaw began suffering a seizure. He was rushed to the hospital suffering serious brain injuries and placed on life support. On Thursday morning he was pronounced dead.
Police tracked down Gunter and charged him with manslaughter.…Continue Reading
BALTIMORE, MD – A 13-year-old girl was found shot to death in an alley, buried under a pile of trash, and now two of her young friends have been charged with killing her.
Police say on Saturday night, 13-year-old Monae Turnage was inside a home with two boys, ages 12 and 13, playing with a .22 caliber rifle. The gun fired and Monae was killed by a shot to her chest.
Police say the two boys panicked and dragged Monae into a nearby alley then hid her body under some bags of trash. Afterwards, one of the boys called Monae’s mother to tell her that she was on her way home. When he called a second time to see if she had gotten there, Monae’s mother became suspicious.
When she still had not arrived home by 1 a.m. Sunday, her family called police and started searching for her. Monae’s brother would eventually see her leg sticking out from trash in an alley directly behind the house she had been visiting that night.
Both boys, whose names are not being released at this time, were arrested and are being held on juvenile charges of involuntary manslaughter.…Continue Reading
Kinston, NC - According to police, Krystal Jones, 24, was preoccupied by her huffing when she drove her car into a building in Kinston, North Carolina.
The building – which had reportedly been a pet store – was being renovated to become a church. More ‘renovation’ is now needed, as Jones squarely smashed it all to hell.
Jones was jailed on a $1,000 bond and, at last report, was still in custody. Police charged her with careless and reckless driving, driving left of the center line and inhaling toxic vapors.
The ‘driving left of the center line’ thing may seem like grasping. It turns out that some grasping was necessary as, North Carolina authorities say, she can not be charged with DWI because the physiological artifacts of huffing dissipate too quickly for impairment to be established post-incident.
It is unfortunate that – apparently – driving through a freakin’ building isn’t a crime…
That said, the fact of the matter is that this incident turned out comparatively well. This case comes on the heals of a couple of more tragic cases.…Continue Reading
Anchorage, Alaska – The man accused of injecting a 14-year-old girl with heroin is in even more trouble after the teen died the other day, having spent almost a week on life support.
Police say 26-year-old Sean Warner, a navy veteran who served in the Afghanistan war as a medic, was with two other men when they picked up 14-year-old Jena Dolstad (Facebook) and took her back to Warner’s home to hang out. There the group used a variety of drugs, including heroin. Dolstad indicated she wanted to try the drug, but didn’t want to inject it herself.
According to the court documents, that’s when Warner tried to inject her himself. First attempts were unsuccessful as he was unable to find a vein. So he had Dolstad lie on his bed and tied a belt around her arm before injecting her with 25 to 30 units of heroin.
She was reportedly left alone in the room and was discovered the following morning face down in her own vomit. She was still alive, but unresponsive.…Continue Reading
CHARLESTON, S.C. – A man’s brother died after eating the cocaine stashed in his ass and now police plan on charging him with manslaughter.
Back in November, 23-year-old Deangelo Rashard Mitchell and his brother, 20-year-old Wayne Joshua Mitchell were arrested for trafficking.
Video in the car captured Deangelo begging his younger brother to fish the cocaine out of his ass and eat it.
“One of us gotta do it, you the only one that don’t have any strikes. …You my little brother… I’m gonna get life,” Deangelo pleads.
Wayne does as he is instructed, and within the hour he was having trouble breathing and bleeding from the mouth. He died soon afterward.
Deangelo was initially charged with trafficking drugs and has since bonded out of jail. But with the video evidence and a toxicology report that definitively proves Wayne died from consuming the cocaine, police plan on charging Deangelo with involuntary manslaughter.
I love my brother to death, but if it ever came down to him going to prison, or me eating drugs out of his ass, I’d be visiting him in prison every chance I could.…Continue Reading
Kasia Rivera, 34, was arrested Friday on manslaughter charges and unauthorized practice of medicine in the death of 22-year-old Justin Street.
Street, presumably on a quest for the perfect penis, went to Rivera’s home on May 5, where she allegedly injected his babymaker with silicone…he died the next day. The medical examiner listed the cause of death as silicone embolism as a result of the injection and the death was ruled a homicide.
After a thorough investigation, Rivera was taken into custody and ordered held on $75,000 bail. Police are continuing their investigation and are asking other potential victims to please step forward.
While discussing this story with a friend, I was told of a man who claimed to have injected silicone into his dick on a pretty regular basis. And by regular basis, I mean about six years. I was also told that there was video of this man on the ‘net.…Continue Reading
OCOEE, Fla. – At the same time Jose Baez was convincing a Florida jury that Casey Anthony did not murder her child, another defense attorney was in the same building trying to convince a jury that Billy Bob Thorton’s estranged daughter was not responsible for the death of her best friend’s 1-year-old daughter.
Back in October 2008, 32-year-old Amanda Brumfield was charged with murder after her best friend’s baby, Olivia Madison Garcia, died in her care. Garcia died after suffering a 3.5-inch fracture of her skull and bleeding on the brain.
Brumfield would tell investigators that the injury was caused by the girl falling out of her crib, but that after the fall the child seemed fine and even ate a banana. She explained the little girl’s lack of distress was the reason why she did not call for help until nearly two hours after the alleged fall, even sending her mother a text saying “Olivia can climb out of her playpen but has learned … she has perfected the landing.”
During the trial, the prosecution would argue there was no way Garcia would have suffered such a massive head injury from the short fall distance Brumfield described, and that it had to come from some other method.…Continue Reading
Bartlesville, OK – Some of you may remember the lovely lady to the left, she was charged with manslaughter in November of last year after her 10-day-old baby was found dead inside a running washing machine. Well, she’s been sentenced.
We covered the story when it broke, but for the click impaired, a quickie rundown on the case….
On Thursday, November, 4th, Lyndsey Fiddler called 911 to report that the infant, Maggie May Trammel, was dead. At the time, Fiddler blamed the child’s death on a relative – the same relative that was heard in the background of the 911 call saying, “No, I didn’t kill your baby. You did.”
It was that relative, Fiddler’s aunt, that found Maggie May in the machine. The woman told detectives she watched as Fiddler left the room with the girl to feed her. Fiddler returned a short time later without the baby. When the woman went to look for the baby, she heard loud noises coming from the laundry room and went to investigate.…Continue Reading
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police say two teens are being charged with involuntary manslaughter after a prank they pulled resulted in a fatal car crash.
Derek W. Greenlee, 18, and Seth R. Stonerock, 19, are accused of concealing a stop sign with several layers of plastic wrap and petroleum jelly, rendering it invisible to motorists.
Afterwards, they both went on Facebook and posted about how funny their prank was until they got exactly what they wanted, and two elderly women breezed through the stop sign and into the path of an SUV pulling a boat.
Mary Spangler, 85, died in the crash while her 80-year-old sister, Jeanne Shea, remains in critical condition at the hospital where one of her legs was amputated above the knee.
Although the boys tried to hide what they had done by deleting their Facebook posts, others had already seen them and contacted police after news of the crash began to spread.
Neither of the high school graduates have a criminal record and Greenlee was considered the best high-school golfer in the county, but if convicted they’re looking at a possible five year prison sentence.…Continue Reading
Pensacola, FL — Elena Rendell, 17, is being held on charges of manslaughter in the shooting death of her 14-year-old foster sister, Christina Sneary, after the two reportedly argued over a cell phone.
According to an arrest report released late last week, Rendell retrieved a 9 mm handgun from a high shelf in a bedroom and shot Sneary in the neck after the two argued. Rendell then reportedly ran outside and informed neighbors her sister had been shot.
She was arrested at the scene, but later told police that had she known she would be charged with a crime, she’d have run. Police say Rendell claimed the shooting was an accident.
The girls’ mother, Troyce Sneary, claims Rendell isn’t even aware of what she’s done. Sneary reportedly told police both of the girls are severely learning disabled, and said Rendell suffers from problems with aggression. Ummm, obviously?
“The guns were put away. Don’t know how they got them. And I get a phone call and this is it,” Sneary said. “Two kids in one day.…Continue Reading
Bronx, NY — Kim Crawford, 21-year-old mother of two, erm…make that one, was booked on murder charges over the weekend after police say she beat her son to death because he broke the television while playing Nintendo Wii.
And, well..she didn’t just beat him, she beat him and neglected to seek medical attention, leaving the kid to suffer for nearly a week. The medical examiner’s office ruled 5-year-old Jamar died Friday from blunt trauma to the chest and an infection to his lacerated pancreas and intestine.
Prosecutors claim Crawford told police several different stories about how Jamar was injured. First, she claimed he simply got sick, went to sleep and never woke up. Then she claimed he fell and injured himself while playing at the park. Questioned further, Crawford cracked. She reportedly told police she “smacked” Jamar on his stomach and back on June 13, “harder than she had ever hit him before.” She told police she watched as the child vomited and suffered in pain for days, neglecting to seek medical help because she was worried the hospital staff would see the bruises and she’d be arrested.…Continue Reading
Orlando, Florida – Thirteen floors beneath the Casey Anthony sideshow, another trial involving the death of a toddler has ended with 32-year-old Amanda Brumfield, the estranged daughter of Billy Bob Thorton, being convicted of aggravated manslaughter in the death of her 1-year-old goddaughter.
Back in October 2008, Brumfield was charged with murder after her best friend’s baby, Olivia Madison Garcia, died in her care. The baby would die after suffering a 3.5-inch fracture of her skull and bleeding on the brain. Brumfield would tell investigators that the injury was caused by the girl trying to climb out of her crib and falling.
She said after the fall, she noticed the girl had a minor mouth injury so she cleaned that up before feeding her bananas. After painting the girl’s toenails she laid on the couch and placed the girl on the floor beside her. When she woke up later and found the girl limp and unresponsive, she called 911. The call was placed two hours after the “fall” and in it you can hear Brumfield administering CPR to Olivia while her husband receives medical instructions from the dispatcher.…Continue Reading
ADA, Okla. – Jasmine Cotter, 19, killed her boyfriend after running him over with a car back in October of last year. She would plead no contest to first-degree manslaughter in February and on Tuesday, she found out her punishment. A 10-year deferred sentence.
After running over her boyfriend, investigators said Cotter, who was 18 at the time, told them she snapped during an argument with her 21-year-old boyfriend, Damian Ruston. She told a state trooper Ruston had spit in her face, flipped her off, then cursed at her before she intentionally turned him into a speed bump on the shoulder of a highway. Before being arrested, Cotter failed a sobriety test.
Because she took a “blind plea” a judge would decide her sentence and the prosecution would not object. Even though everyone agreed on the blind plea, Assistant District Attorney Jim Tollison hinted they had enough evidence to convict. “The facts of the case certainly met the statutory elements of a crime,” he said. Cotter was facing anywhere from four years to life in prison.…Continue Reading
Dallas, TX – One of those assholes who drive a truck lifted 20-ft in the air has been charged with manslaughter after he ran over a woman in a strip club parking lot and killed her.
Kasey McKenzie, 23, was walking in the parking lot of the Spearmint Rhino when she stepped in front of 27-year-old Eric Crutchfield’s dumbass truck. The truck in question was an F-250 that had been lifted too ridiculous heights and unknowingly ran her over with two of his truck’s giant wheels. McKenzie died on the scene.
Patrons had to chase down Crutchfield who wasn’t aware he had just flattened a human being with his rolling cock extension. He was taken into custody and charged with intoxication manslaughter and driving with a suspended license. He has two previous arrests for possession of controlled substances.
In case some of you are wondering about the “intoxication manslaughter” charge like I was, turns out Texas is one of the few states that has a specific charge for anyone who kills someone if they are operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.…Continue Reading
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — I was going to post the story about the tow truck driver who got dragged to death back when it first happened, but some of the details were sketchy. Now they’re not.
Allen Rose, a 35-year-old married father of two, was hooking up an illegally parked SUV to his tow truck when the owner got inside the vehicle and made a run for it. The cable Rose had attached to the SUV snapped and somehow he got tangled up in it. He was dragged screaming one-and-a-half miles down the street.
Reports are that blood streaked long stretches of Platte Avenue, and boots, a tattered jacket, a ball cap, wallet and other articles were scattered along the road. Rose would die later that day from blunt force trauma. The driver of the SUV was found later and identified as 32-year-old Detra Farries.
It is unclear if she knew she was towing a full-grown, screaming male down the street, but as of now she has been charged with manslaughter. She is free on a $50,000 bond, but the DA is still investigating so more charges may be coming after her hearing on March 9th.…Continue Reading
Witnesses told police Gustafson and Gilbert spent much of the evening arguing about her drinking. When Gilbert punched Gustafson in the arm, she reportedly walked into a bedroom of the home and retrieved an antique .38. As she readied the weapon to fire, others in the home pleaded with her to put it down. Gilbert, however, began taunting her.
“Go ahead and shoot me,” he demanded. And after repeated dares, Gustafson did just that…right in the face at point-blank range.
Not knowing what kind of crap Gustafson was going to pull next, another woman in the home ordered her to leave. Law enforcement officials caught up with her at a convenience store a short time later. The gun used in the killing was found in her vehicle. She remains behind bars at the Marion County Jail. Fortunately, it appears as if her bags were already packed…
Thank ya, Sister Iroz, for bring this one to our forums.…Continue Reading
Pahrump, NV — Sharon Broadhead, 29, was arrested Saturday on manslaughter and child abuse charges after three of her children and a family friend died in a mobile home fire that may have been started by one of the kids.
According to Scott Lewis, chief of the Pahrump Valley Fire-Rescue Service, the investigation has shown that it was an “apparent accidental fire possibly ignited by a juvenile resident.” Though Broadhead was in the home when the fire started, she was the only one to make it out alive.
The charges stem from the fact that the woman’s children were known firebugs, having set several fires in the past, and she did very little to prevent them from doing so again.
“There’s a track record of fires in the residence, fires not reported to the authorities,” Nye County Sheriff Anthony De Meo says. A couple of the children reportedly poked holes in the walls and threw lit paper into them. On another occasion, a pillow was set on fire. Police say one of the rooms in the house had already been destroyed by flames, yet Broadhead never reported it or took the appropriate steps to make sure it never happened again.…Continue Reading
