ST. JOSEPH, MO - A 16-year-old Central High School student was charged in juvenile court with third degree assault, after taking a piss in a coffee pot used by school faculty.
The incident happened in March, when some teachers who drank the coffee reported that the coffee tasted funny.
“A report was made that it tasted like chemical or cleaner – I’m not sure what the word was,” said St. Joseph Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melody Smith. “There seemed like this personal coffee pot in a storage room, that the coffee tasted strange.”
An internal investigation was launched that included reviewing footage, frame by frame, from a hidden surveillance camera in the faculty room. Three weeks later, school staff were finally able to find the 16-year-old student responsible for tainting the coffee, and exactly what they’d tainted it with.
After notifying police, the teen was arrested and charged with third degree assault. If he’s convicted in juvenile court, he’s facing anywhere from probation, to being removed from his home and placed in a residential facility.…Continue Reading
Police responded to the home the couple had shared for nearly 40 years Wednesday, after receiving a call from Annie’s granddaughter.
Annie apparently called her granddaughter just before 1:00 p.m. and told her she had hurt the victim, Ronald, pretty bad. She went on to say that while her husband was helping her out with something, he hit her on the hand and began “talking smart” to her. She “lost it,” she said, and hit him upside the head with a baseball bat and cut him with a knife.
According to police, they found Ronald lying in a pool of blood. It appeared as if he had suffered from a bit of blunt force trauma to the head — officers observed part of his skull exposed. Blood spatter and brain matter were apparently evident on the floors and wall.
Annie was found in another bedroom, getting dressed. Officers noted she had blood spatter on her shoes and a piece of human tissue on her forehead.…Continue Reading
St-Louis, MO - Police say 2-year-old Mason Gorse died on Monday after he got caught in the cord of window blinds in his bedroom.
Apparently, Gorse was in his bedroom when he climbed on to his window sill and got caught in the nylon cord of the blinds. His mother found him hanging from his neck, several feet off the ground. A family member performed CPR on Gorse until paramedics arrived, but the boy was pronounced dead at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.
Homicide detectives investigated, but said the death appears to be a tragic accident.
For any of you not aware, the American Academy of Pediatrics says that since 1991, more than 175 infants and children have died after accidentally strangling in window blind cords. According to Parents for Window Blind Safety, 546 children have been strangled by window blind cords since 1983.
Look, I was far from the perfect parent, and I seriously doubt you could completely prep your home to the point that a 2-year-old couldn’t find some way to accidentally kill themselves.…Continue Reading
Ashley Nicole Williams Admitted To Molesting Her Infant Because She Wanted To Know What It Felt LikeMarch 19, 2013 at 8:09 pm by Morbid
Lebanon, MO – Very little details on this messed up story that doesn’t look like is being widely reported, but Lebanon police have arrested 19-year-old Ashley Nicole Williams after they say say she molested her two-month-old daughter because she wanted to know what it felt like.
On March 7, police responded to Mercy Hospital Lebanon’s emergency room to investigate a report of child molestation. When William’s husband was interviewed, he told told them that over the last five days he’d witnessed Williams touching the girl inappropriately while changing her diaper. He said she had done this with other family members present.
Williams waived her Mirand Rights and admitted to police that she molested her two-month-old daughter on at least three occasions. She said she became sexually aroused when molesting her daughter, and started having family members change her daughter’s diaper so she would not be tempted to do it again.
She said she was molested as a child and molested her daughter to know what it felt like to be the molester instead of the molested in order to try and understand why she was sexually abused.…Continue Reading
KANSAS CITY, MO - Police in Missouri believe that the murders of two area prostitutes are linked to the same suspect and that it’s likely there are living victims out there.
During a Friday news conference, a detective with the Kansas City Police Department said that the deaths of of 40-year-old Tamara Sparks and 24-year-old Nicoleone Reed are related.
Sparks’ body was discovered by two cyclists in Oct 2011 near Northeast 120th Street and North Eastern Road in Kansas City. Reed was last seen about Aug. 18 2012 near her home in the area of Independence Avenue and Denver Avenue in Kansas City. Her body was found Aug. 21 in a remote area of southeastern Kearney.
Connecting these two crime scenes is 92 Highway, a fact that police feel is a key to the investigation, as is investigators’ belief that the women’s bodies were meant to be found. They are asking that that the women’s line of work not be the focus point of the investigation.
“These two women were mothers, they’re daughters. They’re family members to someone,” Sgt.…Continue Reading
Kansas City, MO - An emaciated, developmentally disabled 17 year old boy was discovered handcuffed to a steel pole in a basement Monday where he had apparently been since being pulled out of school by his father last September.
Police responded to the home on Monday on a tip made from a neighbor on a child abuse hotline. A woman answered the door when police arrived and stated she lived there with her husband and 17 year old stepson. When asked where the stepson was, she said he was downstairs sleeping in his room. She offered to go get him, but the officers requested to go down there themselves.
Their first clue that shit was terribly, terribly wrong was that as soon as their footsteps echoed on the basement stairs, they heard a voice from the basement saying, “I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything,” according to Officer Jonathan Stone’s report. The report continues, “. . . I turned on the lights. I then observed a thin frail looking male getting out of the fetal position on the concrete floor around a steal [sic] support pole .…Continue Reading
“Yes, I killed her and then killed myself,” Harry Irwin reportedly asked paramedics. “Why am I awake?”
According to police, the couple’s daughter arrived at the home Wednesday morning and found the bloodied Mrs. in the bedroom, and a bloody and unconscious Harry sitting in his recliner with self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest.
Harry later told police that his wife Grace had been arguing and screaming all night and he just couldn’t take it anymore, so he finally just “did her in.” He said he tried to stab himself in the heart afterwards, but must have aimed too low and hit a rib instead.
Harry went on to say that he didn’t remember exactly how he killed her, he just knew that he did.
The couple’s daughter said Harry called her at about 6:30 that morning and requested that she come to the house at 9 a.m.…Continue Reading
My Daddy Ate My Eyes Out, Man Dies After Eating Cocaine Out Of Brother’s Ass, and Crash Caused By Woman Shaving Her Vagina While Driving are just a few titles that come to mind, and now I have this one.
There aren’t a lot of details surrounding the actual murder, but on Sunday, police responded to a call regarding a burning vehicle at a public housing complex.
Once there, officers found 49-year-old Paul R. Potter standing near a burning vehicle and two burning apartments. In their report, the officers say they watched as Potter hurled two objects at nearby witnesses.
Those two objects turned out to be a pair of human arms.
Police and firefighters would find the arms’ owner in one of the burning apartments. Both of the apartments were strewn with blood, but one contained the armless corpse of Potter’s neighbor, who had also been stabbed multiple times. Witnesses say Potter had been involved in some kind of altercation earlier in the day.…Continue Reading
BOLIVAR, MO - Police in Missouri say one man’s plot to commit mass murder at a TWILIGHT screening was foiled after they were contacted by the man’s mother.
On Thursday, the mother of 20-year-old Blaec Lammers contacted police to inform them that her son had gone off his meds and had recently purchased weapons and ammo similar to those used by a gunman inside a theater in Aurora, CO, that claimed the lives of 12 people. She went on to say that she thought her son was intending to shooting people during the opening of the new TWILIGHT movie.
Lammers was taken in for questioning and admitted to police that he had purchased a ticket for a Sunday showing of the latest TWILIGHT movie with every intention of using his recently purchased firearms to shoot the people in the theater. However, he had changed his mind.
He told police he decided that he was going to shoot up a local Walmart instead. He figured that would a be a perfect place for his killing spree because when he ran out of his ammo, he could just reload with Walmart’s.…Continue Reading
Kansas City, MO – I cannot describe just how infuriated I get watching video like the one below. In it, a teenager can be seen sucker punching a Kansas City Metro bus driver, knocking the man unconscious.
The incident happened on October 1st about 9 p.m. at 39th Street and Indiana Avenue. According to Detective Nicholas Sola, the attacker boarded the bus with a several friends, each of them telling the 54-year-old driver the friend behind them would pay the fare. When the last of them didn’t have the money to pay, the driver told them to get off the bus. As the teens exit, one of the assholes sucker punches the driver. Hard.
The driver doesn’t get knocked out cold, but the older man is clearly injured and disoriented after the attack and can be seen rubbing his jaw and chest. He tries to continue his route, but as you can see in the video, he rolls the bus into some traffic cones before other passengers convince him to stop. “It seems as if he doesn’t know where he is,” Sola said.…Continue Reading
WAYNESVILLE, MO - It’s been almost five years since I first reported on 9-year-old Rowan Ford. At the time, she was just a missing girl from Missouri whose stepfather was not being cooperative with police. I didn’t know it at the time, but it would take five years for the case to be resolved, and the details of what happened to that little girl would end up haunting me to this day.
Three days after I posted that article in 2007, Rowan’s battered body was located in a sinkhole where she had been dumped after having been raped and strangled to death. The day after, police would arrest Rowan’s stepfather David Spears (who had previously been on the news pleading for her safe return) and his friend Chris Collings. Police would charge them both with Rowan’s rape and murder after Collings admitted to acting alone in abducting, raping, and strangling Rowan, while Spears confessed to participating in the rape of Rowan and being the one who strangled her to death.
A year later, these two men still had not stood trial, and Impqueen wrote a great summary of everything we knew about the case up until then.…Continue Reading
The incident happened on August 24th during the Poker Run boat race on the Lake of the Ozarks and was captured by a Lake TV photographer. In the video you can see as the driver of a Fountain powerboat as he plows through a wake. The resulting collision causes the driver to plank at the speed of light, and his passengers to be violently tossed from side to side inside of the boat’s interior.
The driver, Marvin Carter, and four of his passengers were taken to area hospitals for moderate injuries. The two women seen in the video, a mother and daughter (rawr), declined treatment at the scene. One of the passengers suffered a broken leg, broken wrist and ruptured disc in his back.
Carter was initially cited with careless and imprudent operation, but after the video was posted to Youtube and went viral, police have cited Carter with a seating violation as well.…Continue Reading
Samantha Edwards is 26-years-old, weighs 115 pounds and stands at 5′ 6″. But don’t let the small stature and those derpy eyes fool you, this mischievous mynx knows how to have a good time!
She’s into recreational drugs, cab rides around the city, shopping, and taking long walks in the park where she will get high, strip naked, and show off her va-jay-jay to strangers.
In full disclosure, she’s in a bit of legal trouble at the moment, currently spending time at one of Greene County’s finest facilities after her latest run-in with The Man. But feel free to visit her anytime between Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. — just ask for her by her new nickname “2114178.”
I’d take her myself, but my girlfriend already tried killing me in my sleep after I helped an elderly woman who was hit by a car.…Continue Reading
CLAYTON, MO – If only all criminals were as stupid as Mr. Donald Ingerson. The 67-year-old, long-time St. Louis teacher has been charged with rape and statutory sodomy after he confessed to sexually assaulting two girls, believing that the statute of limitations had expired on the crimes.
Ingerson worked in five or six districts in Missouri County between 1960 and 1990. He called the St Louis County Prosecutors office on June 4 to inform them he had sexually assaulted two high school girls, aged around 15 years old. One of these occurrence happened in 1974, the other in 1995.
‘This is the first time we’ve had someone contact our office and say, `I want to talk about what I did,’ said St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch.
What was the motive behind Ingerson confessing to his crimes? Perhaps he felt guilty. Maybe he wanted to make amends before he died. Who knows, really? Whatever the reasons, Ingerson only confessed because the statute of limitations is 30 years and thought he could do so without suffering any legal repercussions.…Continue Reading
ST. LOUIS, MO – The woman who recorded a fight between two toddlers, then posted the video to her Facebook, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Earlier this month, 21-year-old Latonya Davis recorded a video of her 2-year-old daughter fighting with a 3-year-old boy she was babysitting. In the video, Davis can be heard laughing while the children cry hysterically as they strike each other at Latonya Davis’ instructions.
“Got some action! Got some action!” Davis can be heard yelling as she records. “Y’all better ball up some fists!”
Obviously thinking that this was perfectly acceptable, Davis then posted the video to Facebook to share with birds of a feather. But she found out pretty quickly that while this may be hilarious in certain circles, not everyone found it amusing.
“It’s like she’s training her before she starts school or something,” said an acquaintance of Davis. “It’s sad because today’s society in the black community its really sickening that these kids are learning how to fight, get guns and stuff, and it shouldn’t be going on.”
In the probable cause statement, a law enforcement officer states:
“I believe that the defendant poses a danger to a crime victim, the community, or any other person because defendant took obvious pleasure and amusement in causing a three and a half year old child and a two and a half year old to engage each other in a physical fight.…Continue Reading
JACKSON MO. — Camera’s were rolling yesterday when the son of James Clay Waller, a man charged with murdering his wife, confronted a witness for the prosecution outside the courthouse before the two traded some punches.
It happened outside the Cape Girardeau County Courthouse during a 10-minute break from Waller’s preliminary hearing. His son, J.C. Waller, can be seen confronting Matt Marshall, one of the prosecution’s 17 witnesses testifying against J.C.’s old man.
Words are exchanged leading to Marshall punching J.C. in the face. J.C. returns fire and the pair get into a minor brawl. The fight ends when a group of women step in and pull J.C. off of Marshall, who had fallen on the ground. Police arrested both men shortly after.
Check out the video. If you can’t see it because of work related restrictions, trust me when I say you aren’t missing much.
We posted about this case back in July of last year, which I will now recap for those of you who may be click impaired.…Continue Reading
Police were called by Haarup’s fiancé, Matt Meyers, after he came home Friday to find the sisters were not there and his 6- and 18-month old daughters had been left alone and in the same crib.
Reports are that there was also blood on the couch, a truck was missing as well as some guns that had been in the home. They would be found Saturday on an abandoned road. There were no signs of foul play, and nothing was found during an initial search of the surrounding fields.
Fearing an abduction but hoping that the two women were still alive, family members gathered that night and held a candle-light vigil to pray for their safe return.
“Whoever has them, give them a phone, have them call us, put an end to this,” the girl’s father, Paul Haarup pleaded.
On Sunday, the Platte County Sheriff’s Department said they were speaking with a person of interest in the case and have executed two search warrants. Later that same day, police found the bodies of the two women in a field near Trimble, MO.…Continue Reading
POPLAR BLUFF, MO – Two years ago we reported on someone in North Carolina who was killed by a train while investigating a ghost train. Now we have two teenage girls in Missouri who were also trying to catch a glimpse of a ghost train, and were killed when a very real train smashed into the vehicle they were sitting in.
“They were playing a stupid game called ‘Ghost Train,’ and the object is to get scared, kind of like telling stories on Halloween,” Butler County Coroner Jim Akers said. “The game was to park on the tracks, let the windows fog up inside and let your mind play tricks on you.”
As Aikers stated, and as detailed in a post at strangeusa.com, the game consists of stopping your vehicle on a particular stretch of tracks on Wilcox Road and turning it off. As you sit there with the rolled up windows becoming increasingly foggy, legend says you may see the lights of a train that crashed in the 1900s.…Continue Reading
Lilbourn, MO — I’m a little late with this one because I somehow managed to miss it. But seeing as how Dakota Valkyrie mentioned it during Saturday’s drunkcast, I figured I’d throw it up. Literally… kinda.
The smokin’ hot mass of flesh to the left is 48-year-old Melissa Eaton (no pun intended) — she’s been accused of boinkin’ a teenage boy on a fairly regular basis for the past two years. No, I don’t know if he’s stupid, blind and/or mentally impaired…
According to authorities, the heavenly beast began violating the boy back in April of 2010, when he was just 13, and continued until February of this year. Investigators and juvenile authorities believe the two hooked up for nookie (and cake?) at least twice a week.
Eatin’ pleaded not guilty to more than a dozen charges of statutory rape and sodomy late last week. I do believe the beast is still caged. And hongry.
I realize most teen boys will hit anything warm and squishy, but damn….…Continue Reading
Rolla, MO – Remember Rowan Ford? If you don’t, maybe you haven’t been here in awhile. Or maybe it’s been so long since the nine-year-old’s murder in 2007 that you forgot. I’d forgive you if you blocked it out from trauma – Rowan’s murder was heinous.
Long story short, Chris Collings (who is 6’6″) and Rowan’s stepdad David Spears (who’s six feet wide, give or take) thought it would be really fun to pull a train on a nine year old girl. Then one or both of the men garroted Rowan with a cord and dumped her body down a cave entrance, where she laid half-clothed and decomposing for nearly a week. Nice, huh? NO.
Collings has admitted to abducting Rowan from her bed and taking her to a trailer, where he raped and killed the child. Spears has also admitted to raping and killing Rowan, which is a slick strategy if you like defense maneuvers for later appeals.
This week, a Phelps County jury finally convicted Christopher Collings of first-degree murder for killing Rowan during the commission of statutory rape.…Continue Reading
