DETROIT, MI – A 10-year-old girl is in very critical condition after having her arm severed during a pit bull attack, police said.

The incident happened Saturday when the dog managed to get out of a second-floor gated room and attack the girl as she was playing in the backyard.

The owner of the dog has had issues with the animal in the past, including attacking a DTE a year ago, so when strangers are around they secure the dog.

“But in this instance, the dog left the upstairs, came down, the gated door was ajar, the dog left and immediately began attacking this child,” Chief James Craig said.

The girl’s aunt tried to intervene but the dog turned on her and injured her leg. A neighbor ran over with a shovel and beat the dog with it until the shovel broke, but the dog would not let go of the girl’s arm.

Someone else came and tried getting the dog away from the girl with food, to no avail.

“It wasn’t even think about that food, because at this point, it smelled blood,” said neighbor Raphael Jackson said.…

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — A 3-week-old baby girl died after being bitten by the family’s pit bull, police say.

The incident happened around 6 p.m. Thursday after Susannah Murray was left alone in her bouncer inside a home as several adults were on the front porch.

When one of the adults went inside the home to check on her, they found she was suffering from bite marks, and the family’s pit bull was nearby with blood around its mouth.

Susannah was rushed to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital where she underwent emergency surgery. Unfortunately, she would die the following morning.

Three pit bulls were removed from the home and taken to the Kent County Animal Shelter where they are under quarantine.

Another child lives in the home, said Sgt. Terry Dixon with the Grand Rapids Police Department, so Child Protective Services has been notified. At this time, the prosecutor’s office has not determined if any charges will be filed.

“This is a horrible tragedy and serves as a critical reminder to never leave a child unattended around a dog or dogs or cats.…

ROSEVILLE, MI – Police say the 4-year-old girl who died from abdominal trauma last week suffered a “catastrophic” blow to the stomach and that it was no accident.

Ivy Yurkus, 4, lived with her 28-year-old mother and her mom’s 25-year-old boyfriend, along with a seven-year-old brother and infant sister.

On Wednesday, Yurkus began complaining about severe stomach pains and became unresponsive. Her mother’s boyfriend loaded her in the car and drove to a nearby restaurant where her mother worked.

Only then was 911 called and Yurkus rushed to the hospital where she would die the next day. The Medical Examiner would later determine that the girl’s death was from blunt force trauma and ruled it a homicide.

“The ME’s office says no, this had to have been a purposeful blow by somebody and this is not the result of an accident or simple fall or anything along those lines,” said Police Chief James Berlin.

Police say they have not talked to Yurkus’ mother or her boyfriend, but have been in contact with attorneys for both.…

INKSTER, MI – A Michigan father has been accused of sexually assaulting and killing his 8-month-old daughter.

James Saltmarshall, 22, was alone with his daughter, Janiyah Saltmarshall, inside a Michigan hotel room after the child’s mother left for work last Thursday morning.

That afternoon, Saltmarshall called 911 to report Janiyah had hit her head and was unresponsive. The baby was rushed to the hospital with head trauma and rectal tearing. She died three days later.

The cause and manner of her death are still pending, county spokesman James Martinez said.

Saltmarshall changed his story a couple of times when questioned by police, first saying he got up to use the bathroom and came back to find Janiyah injured, then later saying she fell off the bed.

He had no explanations for the girl’s anal tearing, stating someone had to have crept into the hotel room and raped her while he was sleeping.

Saltmarshall was arrested and charged with first -degree murder and first-degree criminal sexual assault. While in court, Saltmarshall bawled like a baby and begged to call his mother.…

MUSKEGON, MI – Police say an 8-year-old girl is suspected in the death of a 1-year-old boy that was left unsupervised in a home day care.

When Bryanna Reasonover arrived at the Keysha Keepers home day care to pick up her four children early Friday morning, she immediately noticed something was wrong with her 1-year-old.

“I picked Korey up and I’m thinking he’s asleep and then his face tilts over,” Reasonover said. “I’m saying ‘What’s wrong with my baby’s face?’ I’m thinking he’s still asleep.”

She also noticed teeth marks and bruises on the boy’s face as he was taken to the bedroom of the home’s owner, Keysha Collins. CPR was performed as someone called 911, but Korey never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

According to Reasonover’s 6-year-old daughter, the children had been left unsupervised for a couple of hours and that Korey had been crying. The homeowner’s 8-year-old daughter decided to take care of the situation and put Korey in a closet and, according to Reasonover’s daughter, Korey was bleeding.…

MARQUETTE, MI – An 11-year-old boy hanged himself after his 13-year-old girlfriend faked her own suicide on social media.

When this story was first making the rounds, the mother of the boy was talking about her son’s suicide in hopes it would get other parents to talk to their kids about the dangers of social media.

Katrina Goss did not go into details regarding the motives behind her son deciding to end his own life, aside from saying it was because of a social media prank. Her original statement read:

My son Tysen Benz was an 11 year old student, athlete, comedian, friend, brother, charismatic and all around amazing child. On Tuesday March 14th he impulsively chose to end his own life as a result of a horrific act of a social media prank which is under investigation by authorities. He clung on with the help of life support until Tuesday April 4th. He has now been set free and can Rest In Peace. He was loved by everyone he knew and he will absolutely never be forgotten.

MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – A 19-year-old mother has been accused of sexually abusing her infant son and using him to produce child pornography.

Jazmine Nichole Pacyga has been charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct and manufacturing child sexually abusive material after admitting to performing oral sex on her 3-month-old baby.

I can’t find a lot of details regarding how she was caught, but I am assuming – going by the charges against her – Pacyga is another of many women we have featured on the site who have sexually abused their children on camera.

Pacyga is being charged as a second-time habitual offender because of a prior conviction for felony home invasion. These latest charges could see her getting life behind bars if convicted.

Since her parental rights have been suspended due to her “drunkenness and neglect,” and because she has been lodged in the Muskegon County Jail on two felony charges, her son has been placed in the custody of DHHS. Efforts are currently underway to determine the baby’s father.…

SAGINAW, MI – A 17-year-old girl is facing life in prison after she was charged with raping a 19-year-old man at knife point.

The incident reportedly happened earlier this month when 17-year-old Lestina Marie Smith allegedly held a knife to the throat of a 19-year-old male and made him engage in oral and vaginal sex.

Smith has been arraigned on two felony counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, with each of those charges carrying a maximum punishment of life in prison. She is being held without bond at Saginaw County jail.

Authorities have not released any further details, including the relationship between Smith and the victim before the attack. Smith will be back in court on Feb 3 for a probable cause hearing, so I’m guessing we’ll get more details shortly.

According to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, 3% of American men have experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime, and that 1 out of every 10 rape victims are male.

I’ve read through some comments attached to other news articles reporting on this, and I am amazed that people – mainly women – do not grasp the fact that a hard-on does not equal sexual arousal.…

kiyana-mcnealSHERMAN TOWNSHIP, MI — Police say a 4-year-old girl was mauled to death by a dog that the family had just gotten that day.

On Oct 23, Kiyana McNeal and her mother were outside of their home with a dog they had just gotten to replace the family dog that had recently died.

According to friends, the dog attacked Kiyana as the dog’s old owner went to leave. Kiyana’s mother tried stopping the attack, but was unable to do so.

By time help arrived on the scene it was too late for Kiyana, who could not be resuscitated and died at the scene. Her mother was taken to the hospital to treat non-life-threatening injuries to her head and hands.

The dog, described as a Doberman or Doberman-mix, was taken away by animal control. No word on where the dog came from — whether it was from a shelter, rescue, classified ad listing, family friend or breeder.

Friends and family have started a YouCaring page to help Kiyana’s mother with funeral and medical expenses.…

Robert HerweyerSAUGATUCK, MI – Authorities say a medical episode or fumes may have contributed to the death of 23-year-old Robert Herweyer who drowned in a vat of molasses last week.

On July 26, Herweyer and a co-worker were pumping molasses out of a 12-foot plastic vat at the Agri-Science Technology Company.

When the molasses got to about two feet deep, Herweyer put on a safety mask and used straps attached to a forklift to climb down into the tank to adjust a valve.

According to the co-worker, when Herweyer grabbed the straps to climb back out, he didn’t move and would not respond to him asking if he was ok.

When the co-worker found he was unable to life Herweyer out of the tank with the straps, he ran to their boss’ office for help.

Their boss, David Alexander, used an electric saw to cut the tank open and pull Herweyer out of the vat and start performing CPR. But it was too late.

Reports say that Herweyer was on his back in the tank and his safety mask was barely visible.…

guinea pigGROSSE ILE, MI – Members of the Grosse Ile High School lacrosse team have been accused of killing a guinea pig, drinking its blood and painting themselves in blood as part of a pre-game ritual.

According to Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, 18-year-old Tanner Coolsaet and 17-year-old Michael Roth showed up to a team meeting off campus with a guinea pig in a box.

With over half of the 18 member team present, along with some adults, Coolsaet allegedly used a knife to slit the guinea pig’s throat. Roth then allegedly beat it with a small bat. Some of the team members present reportedly drank the animal’s blood and painted their faces with the blood.

The incident was brought to the attention of police after a teacher heard some of the students talking about what had been done. Both Coolsaet and Roth were charged with killing/torturing an animal and conspiracy to commit killing/torturing of animals. They are each facing a possible 4 years in prison.

Students at the school say that they are now suffering from taunts from other schools at sporting events and practices, where they are now known as the “guinea pig school.”

One parent complained that he didn’t see what the big deal was and that the media was blowing the killing of an animal for sport out of proportion.…

It all started Tuesday evening when police started receiving phone calls from concerns citizens regarding a blue pickup truck driving erratically.

Jeff WillisNORTON SHORES, MI – Three years after 25-year-old Jessica Heeringa went missing from her job as a gas station attendant, police have named a person of interest in her disappearance.

Heeringa was last seen in April of 2013 as she prepared to close up the Exxon Mobil gas station where she worked the late shift. A concerned customer called police 15 minutes after Herringa had made her last sale to report there was no employee at the open gas station.

Police believed Heeringa had been abducted from the store as her purse and keys were still there, and there was evidence she had been in the process of closing the store. Unfortunately, the gas station was not equipped with surveillance cameras but there were reports of a van in the area at the time.

Now, three years later, police think they may have the person responsible for Heeringa’s disappearance – and he may be a serial killer. Last week, 46-year-old Jeffrey Willis was charged with trying to abduct a teenage girl in April.…

Elazar WithersDETROIT, MI – Police have accused 28-year-old Elazar Withers of using a dating app to meet and rape multiple men during an early morning crime spree.

Police say that Withers used the cell phone dating app Jack’d, used primarily for gay and lesbian hookups, to rob and rape multiple men early Friday morning.

“It looks like this guy went on this website and was reviewing the website to see who is out there, who wants to go on dates,” said Sgt. Marvin Jones. “And then he set them up to rob them and sexually assault them.”

Withers met his first victim, a 37-year-old man, who he carjacked at gunpoint. The man was able to run from the scene and report the incident to police. Two hours later, Withers used the app to meet a 30-year-old man who he forced into the car before robbing and sexually assaulting him. The victim was forced from the car and was able to flag down a police officer.

Four hours later, Wither met another man using Jack’d and followed the same pattern.…

Felisha WhitcombBAY CITY, MI — Felisha Whitcomb was sentenced to 6 months in jail for lying about a police officer sexually assaulting her during a traffic stop.

On June 17, Whitcomb was pulled over for running a red light and found with a small amount of marijuana. She was arrested and placed in the Iosco County Jail, then released the next day on her own recognizance.

Two days later, Whitcomb showed up at the McLaren Bay Region hospital emergency room stating she had been sexually assaulted by the officer.

Hospital staff called police to relay Whitcomb’s story. A nurse told the responding trooper that while Whitcomb did have some bruising to her scalp and thigh, the injuries were too old to have happened during the incident with the police officer.…

Quasarano familyFENTON TWP, MI – Investigators say that the family of six that died from carbon monoxide poisoning “dropped in their spots” in different parts of the home.

On Friday night, the Quasarano family returned home from family movie night at Faith Baptist Church of Linden to find the high winds had knocked out power to their home.

So Leonard Quasarano ran out to Home Depot to pick up a 10,000 Watt generator that is attached to a 40-pound propane tank. The generator was cranked up after being set up in the home’s walk-out basement.

That night, or possibly the following morning, all six members of the family would die from carbon monoxide poisoning due to a lack of ventilation that caused the gas to build up inside. There were no carbon monoxide detectors in the home.

Their bodies would not be found until Sunday, after concerned family members stopped by the home to check on them. According to Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell, the family didn’t know what hit them and “dropped in their spots” throughout the home.…

Eric MastersGRAND RAPIDS, MI — Eric Masters has admitted to repeatedly raping an 18-month-old girl in a Michigan motel room, which he recorded and shared online.

Masters, 29, is already serving a 50-year prison sentence after he was convicted last year of making child porn that he would share online. Investigators found 21 videos and images depicting sexual exploitation of a child.

The videos were taken in a motel room and show Masters raping the girl, who was sometimes tied to a bed. Court records also state that in one video, Masters urinated on the child.

On Monday, Masters pleaded guilty to five felony charges in relation to those sexual assaults, a plea the judge accepted. Masters is facing a minimum of 50 more years in prison when he is sentenced in March.
