NORTH HAMPTON, MA -- A 27-year-old woman in Massachusetts has been charged with multiple counts of child rape after being accused have having sexual relations with her friend’s 13-year-old son.
Amanda Wilson has been charged with four counts of aggravated rape of a child after prosecutors say she had sex with the boy at his house while his mother was away and while she was caring for him when his family went out of town.
No word on how she got busted, but the boy told investigators that Wilson had showed him and another boy pornography on her laptop and would threaten to kill herself if anyone found out about the two having sex. Court documents reveal Wilson admitted to the rapes, citing “daddy issues.” o_O
Despite her admission, she pleaded not guilty to the charges while in court on Wednesday. She was supposed to appear on November 14, but didn’t show because authorities couldn’t find her to let her know. Despite the earlier no-show, her attorney successfully kept her from having to use a GPS device that would monitor her whereabouts until her June, 2013 pre-trial hearing.…Continue Reading
PLYMOUTH, MA – If you are interested in watching someone suffer severe backlash at the hands of the Internet because of a picture they posted on Facebook, then look no further than 30-year-old Lindsey Stone.
Stone was visiting the Arlington National Cemetery in October while on a paid business trip. She and a co-worker thought it would be funny to take this picture of Lindsey acting as if she was shouting while giving the finger to a sign at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that asks for “silence and respect.”
Thinking that this was funny and clever and everyone would tell them what a laugh riot she is, Lindsey and her co-worker posted the image to their public Facebook profiles for the world to see. Of course, this turned out to be a real bad idea.
It wasn’t long before the picture went viral, outraging many, prompting someone claiming to be a disabled Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran to create a Fire Lindsey Stone Facebook page. He is demanding that Stone be fired from LIFE, the non-profit organization that helps adults with disabilities that Lindsey worked for and who paid for the trip.…Continue Reading
NEWBURYPORT, MA - Police have arrested a teen mother after they say she poisoned another teen mother’s infant while they both stayed at a home for teenage mothers.
The teens, both under the age of 17, had been staying at the home for little over a year when one of their infants became ill. The baby, less than a year old, was rushed to the hospital where it was learned that he had ingested a poisonous substance.
The boy was treated and released, but an investigation would later reveal that the infant had ingested baby formula tainted with a household cleaning product, and that another teen mother staying at the home had placed the substance in the formula earlier in the week.
Before it was learned how the boy was poisoned, and who was responsible, the accused teen had run away from the home. She was later found and arrested on a warrant issued for her running away, then charged with attempted poisoning the next day.
She is currently in jail without bond and will appear in juvenile court next week.…Continue Reading
Police say 34-year-old Keith Paro got into an argument with his girlfriend as she sat inside a hot tub. Enraged over whatever it was they were fighting about, Paro allegedly retrieved his 4-foot ball python from its cage, then used it to whip his girlfriend.
After beating her with his snake, he tossed the animal into the hot tub, killing it. He also threw a set of temporary stairs at the woman, trashed the house, stole some items, and fled the scene before police arrived. His girlfriend was not seriously injured, suffering bruising to her knees, back, arms and stomach.
Paro would end up turning himself in to police and has been charged with domestic assault and battery, larceny over $250, wanton and malicious damage over $250, and cruelty to animals.
This isn’t the first time we have reported on a man beating his girlfriend with an animal.…Continue Reading
HAVERHILL, Mass. - In a landmark case out of Massachusetts, 18-year-old Aaron Deveau was convicted of causing a fatal accident while texting.
He was sentenced to one year in jail and becoming the first person in that state to be convicted of a new criminal charge, texting while driving negligently and causing injury, that just took effect in September 2010.
Last February, a then 17-year-old Deveau was driving a car that crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a pickup truck driven by 55-year-old Donald Bowley, who would die from his injuries a few weeks later.
During his trial it was revealed that Deveau had sent 193 texts from his mobile phone on the day of the accident. Deveau testified that he never sent any of the texts while driving, that he drifted into the wrong lane while thinking about homework. Police say this is not true, and they had phone records showing some of the texts sent from Deveau’s phone were done so moments before the fatal collision.
On Wednesday, the jury sided with prosecutors and found Deveau guilty of motor vehicle homicide and negligent operation while texting.…Continue Reading
Shirley, Mass. – Someone emailed us this story about a pit bull named Lily that was hit by a train after dragging an unconscious woman off some railroad tracks. They asked that we post about it to show not all pit bulls are murderous baby rapers.
So here goes.
A pit bull’s attempts to push a woman in front of a moving train were unsuccessful and the dog ended up getting hit by the train instead.
According to one website owner, the dog probably crept up behind the woman as she walked along the tracks in an attempt to push her into the path of an oncoming train.
“Blood lust must have clouded the pit bull’s calculations, causing the pushed woman to fall away from the tracks and was knocked unconscious,” said the man who tracks pit bull incidents in hopes of thwarting their attempts to take over the world in the name of Satan. ”The dog was probably so enraged at its failure to remove another human from the planet, that it was unable to get out of the train’s path in time and was struck.”
Because of powers only bestowed upon the Devil’s minions, the pit bull only suffered a fractured pelvis and a leg that will have to be amputated.…Continue Reading
Providence, RI – Police have confirmed that the body found in a backyard storage shed of a home in Rhode Island does belong to the autistic teen who went missing in Massachusetts last month.
Joseph Webster, 19, was last seen at a Motel 6 on March 13. His family became increasingly worried when the teen never returned home because he had never stayed out overnight before.
He also suffered from mild autism and severe diabetes that required him to take insulin every eight hours. Even more distressing was the fact that Webster did not have enough insulin with him to survive the length of time he had been missing.
Police would eventually arrest 19-year-old James Howze and 22-year-old Lara Corey in connection to the teen’s disappearance, accusing the pair of assaulting Webster and stealing his car.
Corey had been staying in Room 214 at the Motel 6 where Webster was last seen and at the time he vanished. Prosecutors said blood and a shovel were found at the hotel and Howze had tried selling Webster’s car in Rhode Island.…Continue Reading
TURNERS FALLS, MA – Police have arrested six people in connection to the abduction and beating of a homeless teenager.
According to Montague Police Staff Sergeant Chip Dodge, a family got pissed after their 14-year-old daughter told them she had been hit by Branden Stebbins, a 19-year-old homeless teenager.
The girl’s mother, Dawn Shafer, decided not to contact police and inform them of her daughter’s allegations and reportedly asked a few friends to help her track down Stebbins and give him the what-for.
When they finally found the teen in a park, the group decided to dole out a bit of street justice. After duct taping the teen, they placed him in their vehicle and brought him back to their home where a neighbor watched seven people beat Stebbins with baseball bats.
Before police arrived, the group placed Stebbins back in the vehicle and had already left the scene. This is also about the time that Johny Lopez, one of Stebbins’ attackers and the alleged ringleader, threatened to rape and murder Stebbins.
Deciding not to find out if Lopez was serious on either of his threats, Stebbins jumped out of the moving vehicle. Despite having his arm ran over, Stebbins was able to run away and flag down a motorist to help.…Continue Reading
Boston, MA – Dr. Colette Vieau and her family, a husband and two young daughters, had boarded a JetBlue flight back to Boston from the luxurious island of Turks and Caicos when they were told to get off. The reason? Their two-year-old, Natalie, was throwing a fit and refused to be seated.
In a courageous show of force, the girl’s parents finally managed to wrangle the beast and restrain her with a seat belt, holding her in place. Dr. Vieau, who states her family were never belligerent, angry or screaming, then said to a flight attendant, “We have them seated. Can we go now?”
It was at that point that the flight attendant informed them the pilot had already decided, for the safety of all customers and crewmembers on board, that the family be removed from the plane.
JetBlue released a statement explaining the pilot came to this decision because the family “did not comply with crewmember instructions for a prolonged time period.”
There were no more flights that night, and the family reports that they spent $2,000 for a hotel and new flights. I reckon they could have obtained a toddler-sized muzzle and straitjacket for less than half that.…Continue Reading
Last Thursday night, 44-year-old Lisa Stilkey and her husband, 40-year-old Alan Stilkey, got into a heated argument. During part of this argument, Lisa was on the phone her son who said he heard Alan yelling, “When you get off the phone, I’m going to kill you.”
A short time after this phone call, Lisa threw a pillow out a second-story window and then followed behind it. It was not a smooth landing. She suffered severe injuries from the fall and was pronounced dead at the hospital the next day.
Alan, an arm wrestling champion, has been charged with manslaughter, assault and battery and threat to commit a crime. He has pleaded not guilty.
Fitchburg, MA – A Massachusetts woman experienced the business end of an FBI chainsaw when she made the mistake of renting an apartment in the same building and floor as a suspected drug dealer.
Fitchburg – long considered the Medellín of the Northeast – was the scene of a massive citywide drug and weapons gang raid last Thursday. At 6AM, just before Judy Sanchez’ alarm was set to go off, she heard a pounding outside her second floor apartment. This prompted her to get out of bed to investigate.
“I just happened to glance over and saw this huge chainsaw ripping down the side of my [apartment] door,” Sanchez explained. “And I was freaking out. I didn’t know what was going on.”
As soon as the chainsaw had cut through most of her door, a member of the FBI arrest team kicked it in.
“That’s when I heard the clicking of a gun and I heard ‘FBI, get down!’, so I laid right on down.”
The FBI reportedly told the woman to get control of her three-month-old pit bull puppy, which she did.…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
“Officer Jason Mazza observed a vehicle on Route 125 drive slowly by,” deputy police Chief Kathleen Jones said. “[The patrol officer] heard a loud noise and observed the car was missing the rear driver’s side tire, driven on its rim only. It wasn’t flat, there was no tire on it at all.”
Officer Jason Mazza pulled Short over and approached. Shockingly, the officer reported smelling a ‘strong odor of alcohol.’ Mazza questioned Short and noted that he appeared ‘disoriented.’
“Short believed at the time of the stop that he was in Methuen, Massachusetts,” Jones said. “He told the officer he couldn’t find a jack to change his tire, but couldn’t explain why there was no tire on the car.”
After failing a field sobriety test, a police search of the vehicle yielded a substance suspected to be marijuana and some paraphernalia.…Continue Reading
Billerica, MA – Picking up where we left off yesterday, I got a couple more teacher stories to post, starting with the middle school teacher who was arrested and charged with armed robbery.
According to the police report, 27-year-old Jennifer Horton, a 6th grade English and Social Studies teacher at Marshall Middle School, was sitting in a parked car with her boyfriend, Andrew Pasquale, and a 54-year-old man who was in the backseat.
At some point Horton and Pasquale, who is an acquaintance of the victim, pointed a gun at the victim sitting in the backseat while demanding cash and his prescription medications. The victim told police that after the couple took $103, OxyContin pills and a Social Security card, he was sprayed with pepper spray before he was able to get out of the car.
Police have arrested Horton and Pasquale, charging them both with armed robbery. Bill Ryan, the superintendent of schools, said Horton is now on paid administrative leave and not allowed on school property.…Continue Reading
Attleboro, MA – A 41-year old Massachusetts mother has been arrested for allegedly forcing her 10-year-old daughter to pose nude on webcam in the preposterous hopes of winning a $20,000 mother-daughter bikini photo shoot.
Ann Lussier reportedly made her daughter strip down to her bra and underwear – and then get completely naked – while a man who identified himself as a Florida-based photographer watched her over Skype. The woman and her daughter were unable to see the photographer because, according to his claim, ‘his camera was broken.’
According to court documents, Lussier complained to her twin sister about the incident and how “uncooperative” her daughter was during the nude broadcast. The charging document also stated the aunt heard her niece crying in the background. The sister, who presumably ended up with all of the brains in their shared womb, contacted authorities. The resulting month-long investigation led to the arrest of the man allegedly on the other end of the camera – Joshua Dunfee of Oxford Junction, Iowa. That would be the Iowa that is in Florida, of course…
“There are sickos out there, and they let them go.…Continue Reading
According to authorities, 38-year-old Kelly Hoose placed a call to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Thursday and told the person on the other end of the line that he had been stalking the girl, admitting that he had been following her school bus on and off for three months. Hoose reportedly said he loved the “curly-haired” teen, wanted to kiss her and planned to take her to his house. Police say he then gave the operator his full name, address and license plate number.
The agency immediately contacted Massachusetts State Police. Surveillance was placed at school bus stops on Friday and police began tailing Hoose. When he spotted the tail on Monday, Hoose allegedly rammed a police cruiser and sped off. After a brief pursuit, Hoose was arrested at his home. But not before he attempted to arm himself with a knife.…Continue Reading
Pittsfield, MA — Charlie Price, a Level III sex offender, pleaded guilty to a single count of disturbing the peace earlier this week after he was accused of groping and licking a cardboard cutout on display at a Rite-Aid pharmacy over the weekend.
According to the police report, an allegedly intoxicated Price entered the store at about 5:00 Saturday evening, “grabbed hold of the sunglass display, hugged it tightly and then began to lick and kiss the face of the female party on the display.”
The alleged tonguing apparently lasted for about a minute and promptly ended when Price fell to the floor.
Police say that when Price was back on his feet, he began yelling and screaming. My guess…papercut. Anywho, Price’s bizarre behavior apparently scared a few customers in the store, who police said were “actively” trying to make themselves scarce. They should have been “actively” hitting the record buttons on their cellphones.
In 1991, Price was convicted of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. Last year, he was convicted of open and gross lewdness and lascivious behavior.…Continue Reading
Boston, MA – Thomas Hutchinson, 19, of Tewksbury, Massachusetts was indicted on child rape and child pornography charges after being accused of blackmailing an underage girl into performing sexual acts using a series of fake online identities.
It was reported that early this year, a 15-year-old girl using the social networking website MyYearbook.com was contacted by individual calling herself “Brittany.” “Brittany” reportedly offered to help the victim get into modeling if the victim was interested. According to police, after the victim agreed, a second online persona using the screen name Sexybeast5655@aim.com contacted her. “Sexybeast” claimed to be in the modeling industry.
“Sexybeast” – with full knowledge of the victim’s age – asked the victim to send pictures of herself in bathing suits and various clothing. After a series of message exchanges, “Sexybeast5655″ reportedly asked the victim to send naked pictures and videos.
Police reported that, after the victim had provided the pictures and videos, “Sexybeast” threatened to post them online if the teen didn’t have sex with a “friend.” The victim was also threatened with rape if she refused or told police.…Continue Reading
Cambridge, MA — Joseph P. Macdonald, 32, was arrested last week after his attempts to organize an impromptu block party were spurned by his unimaginative neighbors. …and we wonder why America lacks a “sense of community.”
The evening of October 3 began innocently enough when MacDonald reportedly came out of the isolation of his apartment to urinate on the front steps of the building. At his point, you might expect that his neighbors would inquire as to how the urinating was going or even join in – as that would be the polite thing. But, no. Completely out of the blue, some of his neighbors reportedly yelled at him to stop.
After a verbal exchange that we will simply describe as “unpleasant,” Macdonald reportedly returned to his apartment.
Not to be discouraged and clearly clinging to the notion that the concept of the neighborhood is not dead, Macdonald reportedly returned to the street. This time – while wearing only a T-shirt and peach-colored lace panties – police said Macdonald began masturbating in the middle of the street and calling out to the other residents to ‘come outside and join him.’ Ungrateful, neighbors called police.…Continue Reading
NEW BEDFORD, Mass., – Before you continue reading I suggest you get the full effect of the article’s contents by playing this in the background. Ok, ready?
The other day, an emaciated one-year-old female dog jumped from a third story window in an effort to save herself from starving to death.
The pit bull mix broke her hip and hind leg upon landing and more than likely would have died had had a cop not witnessed the dog’s three-story plunge. Animal control officials were called and immediately began treating her.
Officials would also find a four-month-old puppy starving to death on the first floor of the flea-infested apartment. The property manager told police the tenant had moved out a couple month’s ago and did not have their contact information.
The female, named Miracle, underwent surgery on Monday and will be placed into the custody of Forever Paws Animal Shelter once she recovers. The puppy, Gracie, was in a lot worse shape but is alive and recovering in the shelter’s ICU.
Officials do not know who left the dogs to die like that, but say they will find out who is responsible.…Continue Reading
