Shippensburg, PA – A 10-year-old girl in Pennsylvania has been charged with murdering 10-month-old Heath Ryder.
Last July, 56-year-old Dottie Mae Bowers was baby sitting Ryder when she called his mother saying she could not wake Heath from his nap and he was breathing funny. The mother told Bowers to call 911, but she didn’t. Ryder would die later at the hospital from blunt force trauma to the head and a doctor would later say that Ryder’s chances of survival would have been “greatly increased” had the idiot simply called 911 at the first signs of trouble.
Bowers was charged with involuntary manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child on Friday. She was released on an unsecured $50,000 bond and faces 15 years if convicted. Also charged was one of the girls who were also at the home. She was 9 at the time, and was charged with third-degree murder and originally charged as an adult.
There were two girls there at the time, the accused and a 7-year-old, each with a different account of what happened to Ryder.…
Riverside, CA – Police are reporting a regional director for the National Socialist Movement was shot in killed at his home early Sunday morning, and his 10-year-old son is suspected of pulling the trigger.
Jeff Hall, 32, was a regional director for the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group based in Detroit. Police responded to his home early Sunday after a report of shots fired. Inside they found Hall dead from a single gunshot wound.
His wife and five other children were at the home at the time of the shooting, but only his 10-year-old son was detained. Police said they were not looking for any additional suspects. They also didn’t state if they felt the shooting was an accident or intentional, but I’m sure that will all come out later when more details are revealed.
Aside from working as a plumber, Hall was gaining a lot of attention with his neo-Nazi endeavors. He ran for a position on the Western Riverside Municipal Water District board in November, but lost to incumbent Tom Evans.…
Calumet City, Illinois – Wanderer posted a story a couple days ago regarding the dead body of 18-year-old Rosemary Newman being found in a forest preserve. She was nine-months pregnant. Yesterday police announced they have arrested and charged two people for her murder. It turns out it was her ex-boyfriend and another woman, and what they did was as chilling as it was cold-blooded.
Newman was lured to a restaurant by her ex, 20-year-old Deandre Minkens, 20, under the guise of getting back together. Minkens is reportedly the father of Newman’s unborn baby. Newman’s family tried to warn her not to go, but she went anyway leaving a note that read “he already in my hands because he want to get back with me.”
What Newman didn’t know was that her family was right about their suspicions and that she had walked into a trap, a murder plot Minkens had spent several weeks planning. After eating at the restaurant, the pair got into Minkens vehicle where 19-year-old Shante Thomas was hiding. …
On Easter Sunday, the boy allegedly entered the room where his sister and her boyfriend were in bed. He then shot 17-year-old Tyree Bell in the head with a rifle. The bullet exited Bell’s head and then entered the hand and shoulder of the sister.
Bell was pronounced dead at the scene, the sister was taken to the hospital for treatment and released on Monday. The shooting occurred at the home of the sibling’s father’s, but he was not at home at the time of the shooting. Both the teen and his sister are in the state’s protective custody, but had been given Easter passes so that they could visit their family.
Police believe the suspect was upset because his sister was having a physical relationship with Bell. The suspected shooter is a documented gang member, but Bell is not.
The 15-year-old boy has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault.…
BOYLE HEIGHTS, CA – If you are responsible for the dead teenager found in a storage container on the side of a California highway, police would like to talk to you.
Police where called to an off-ramp of Interstates 5 and 10 after a homeless person made the grisly discovery. The plastic container contained the naked body of 17-year-old Michelle Lozano. “It was partially covered in Target, or some kind of plastic bags, and she was face down in the bushes,” said LAPD Det. DeWain Fields.
Police are investigating Lozano’s death as a homicide and believe she may have been killed somewhere else and dumped from a moving vehicle as the tub was busted open when it was discovered. Her cause of death will be determined today after the The Los Angeles County coroner’s office conducts their examination.
I’m having trouble finding any details on the teen aside from her having a tattoo on each wrist, one reading “Love” and the other “Hate.” Other than that, nothing. Homicide detectives say Lozano is not listed on any missing persons reports.…
CONWAY, N.H. – The body of Krista Dittmeyer was found by divers in a retaining pond about a quarter-mile from where her car was found idling with her infant daughter inside. An autopsy will be conducted to determine Dittmeyer’s cause of death, but police are labeling her death “suspicious.”
Police began searching for Dittmeyer after her car was found on Saturday, sitting in the Cranmore Mountain ski area parking lot. It had been idling there for several hours with the hazard lights flashing. In the backseat was Dittmeyer’s 14-month-old daughter, alive and unharmed.
On Tuesday, police executed search warrants on two vehicles. One was Dittmeyer’s black Nissan Sentra, the other was never revealed to the media. Reports of blood being found in Dittmeyer’s vehicle were not confirmed by police, saying the Conway Police Department “does not comment on specific pieces of evidence.”
No one knows why Dittmeyer was in Conway, but she reportedly had a number of friends in the area. Her family, like a lot of other people, feel she was forced out of the car and that she persuaded that person to leave her daughter behind. …
SLIDELL, La.– The story of the man found shot to death and stuffed in the trunk of his car is gonna get even more interesting than it was when it was first reported.
It all started on Monday afternoon when someone called 911 to report they had heard gunshots coming from a neighbor’s home. When the responding officer arrived at the home of fire battalion chief David Smith, he was greeted by 33-year-old Michael Lizana claiming to be Smith’s roommate. The officer left having no reason to doubt the man’s story, but stuck around the area just in case. He ran into a fellow firefighter of Smith’s and after speaking with him, felt that something wasn’t quite right at the home.
When the officer went back to the home, he was once again greeted by Lizana but the officer went inside the home and found Smith. He was in the trunk of his Camero wrapped in plastic. He had been shot four times. Police arrested Lizana and charged him with first degree murder.…
Calumet City, Illinois – The body of a pregnant teen was found strangled to death in a Cook County Forest Preserve.
The body of 18-year-old Rosemary Newman was discovered Sunday morning by a man walking his dog . After an autopsy on Monday, the medical examiner indicated Newman, who was 9-months pregnant, was strangled.
Newman’s mother says her daughter went out on Saturday night and was expected to return home at about 11:30. When the teenager did not return, Rosie Newman wasn’t worried for her safety, but rather concerned because her daughter was so far into her pregnancy.
“I know she was going to be having the baby pretty sooon. So I just started to worry. She didn’t come back at the time she was supposed to come back,” said Rosie Newman.
Police believe it is likely the Alsip teen was murdered elsewhere and her body dumped in the forest preserve. She was last seen at a restaurant with a friend. While the Newman family does not know who killed Rosemary, they do not believe her murder was random.…
Smith was golfing as part of a foursome at the Denison Country Club on Tuesday at about 4pm, Sheriff’s Sgt. Rickey Wheeler said Wednesday. At the 3rd hole, a fellow golfer, Jim Steward, said Smith’s dog Marty jumped out of the cart and ran to an adjacent home with two dogs.
Steward said then he heard what sounded like a firecracker and he turned to see McInchak with a gun in his hand. An injured and bloodied Marty came running back to the cart.
Steward said that after the first shot McInchak yelled, “Keep your dog off my property,” at which point Smith started walking toward him. According to Steward, Smith said as he approached, “If you’re gonna shoot my dog, shoot me.” Steward added, “And the guy shot him. I mean bam. He didn’t hesitate.”
Smith collapsed and didn’t get up. Deputies who arrived found Smith in McInchak’s back yard and McInchak standing on his patio about 25 yards away.…
Early Sunday morning, Raymond Mitchell, 34, is said to have stopped at a south London McDonald’s to buy a hot chocolate. While waiting in line, a fight reportedly broke out between two other men who were also in the line. Witnesses say Mitchell intervened to stop the fight. His intervention was not well received.
According to witness accounts, one of the men announced loudly, “You are gonna die tonight, you are not gonna see the morning.” That man is then said to have phoned someone asking him to bring a gun by yelling, “Bring me that thing.”
Mitchell was chased from the McDonald’s into a nearby cul-de-sac. According to the police account, the gun was delivered and Mitchell was beaten and pistol-whipped. Mitchell was then shot three times – including shots to the groin and liver. He was taken to hospital but died hours later.…

Phelps County, Missouri - The rape and murder trial of Chris Collings, 35, was set to start on Monday. Instead, Phelps County Judge Mary Sheffield declared a mistrial this morning because Collings’ prosecution and defense were unable to come up with a jury, even on a change of venue from Barry County and a two-year delay. Join me in a chorus of ” THIS FRIGGING SUCKS” by Imp and the Dammit Dammits, won’t you?
We first reported on Rowan Ford over three years ago. Rowan Ford was nine years old in November 2007. She was an elfin little girl, sweet-natured despite her repeated bouts of head lice and general air of neglect. Rowan often slept in the back of her mother’s car while Colleen Spears worked the overnight shift at Wal-Mart. Rowan slept there when the weather was good because she was afraid of her stepfather, David Spears. The extent of Rowan’s fear was sadly proven correct when her battered, raped body was found bloody and strangled in a small cave a week after her disappearance.…
Mequon, WI — Police have arrested a 20-year-old man, accusing him of shooting both of his parents to death after an argument over gas money.
According to prosecutors, 20-year-old Dennis Markov got into an argument with his father, 45-year-old Victor Markov, after Victor refused to give him $5 for gas. Dennis responded by retrieving a rifle and shooting his father multiple times in the back of the head. When his mother, 39-year-old Larissa Markov, returned home from running errands, Dennis shot her to death as well.
When Larissa did not show up for work and no one was able to contact her, police were asked to check on her. When they arrived at the home, they were let inside by Dennis and they discovered both Victor and Larissa’s dead bodies in the garage. They also found “a hand saw on a work bench adjacent to the bodies, a miter saw on a stand nearby, as well as a quantity of plastic bags.”
One of the most chilling aspects of this senseless murder is the absolute lack of remorse displayed by Dennis.…
SUMMERFIELD, FL — Six people have been arrested and charged with killing a 15-year-old boy, burning his body and then shoveling the ashes into paint cans. This story is just like the one detailed in the movie BULLY, about another group of young geniuses from Florida who murdered a peer, but on a seemingly higher level of retardation.
Police say that 15-year-old Seath Jackson (facebook) received a text message from his 15-year-old ex-girlfriend, Amber Wright (facebook), wanting to get back together. This text was sent sometime after Jackson had declined an offer by Wright to meet her at the home of 18-year-old Charlie Kay Ely.
With this new text, Jackson went to the home and walked right into a trap. He was unaware that he had walked into an ambush by a group of people that included Wright’s new boyfriend, 18-year-old Michael Bargo, a teen he had fought with several weeks prior.
Daytona Beach, FL – Police are saying that a 4-year-old boy may be the person responsible for the drowning death of his 3-year-old sister.
Tanya Causey, 38, told investigators that on Tuesday evening she left her two children in the garage playing in an inflatable pool to go use the restroom. The pool measured 10 to 12 feet long and contained less than 2 feet of water. When she returned she found her daughter,Victoria Cunningham, underwater.
Paramedics carried the little girl into the ambulance as her brother was seen running around the yard, but she would be pronounced dead a short time later. At first the death was deemed accidental, but that soon changed. “During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that the brother may have had some involvement with his sister’s death,” Daytona Beach police spokesman Jimmie Flynt said.
The little girl’s brother, who reportedly has mental issues, told his mother he held his sister’s head underwater because he was mad at her. The Florida Department of Children and Families have now gotten involved, but even if it is proved that the boy intentionally drowned his sister, he is too young for any charges to be filed against him.…
LOUISVILLE, Ky – I know I usually meet opposition on this subject from some of our readers, and on some levels I even understand their points. But whenever I read about another person who killed someone while driving drunk being convicted on murder charges, I can honestly say it pleases me greatly.
Back in July, Angela Baumia had left a birthday party where she admitted she had been drinking for hours. She would end up striking and killing 11-year-old Dylan Geitgey who was riding his bike in the street. She was ultimately charged with murder, wanton endangerment, and driving under the influence. Her trial started this year and yesterday she was found guilty of murder.
Her defense attorney’s tried painting a picture of a battered woman who was being abused by her boyfriend moments before the collision. They also stopped short of blaming Geitgey for his own death, as he was not riding on the sidewalk. But prosecutors did a good job of dismantling her defense. They informed jurors of the open beer in the car, her admission of drinking for hours before leaving the party, her not being able to recollect if she had stopped at the intersection and the fact that she cursed out the nurses and EMT workers after the accident.…
Arlington Heights, IL – Bail has been denied for the Arlington Heights teen who was charged with the murder of his father.
Matthew Nelleson had recently began living with his father after a stint in jail on burglary charges. He was angry with his dad, 55-year-old George Nelleson over not getting money he felt he deserved. So with the help of 20-year-old Marlon Green, a man he met in prison, he devised a plan to rob his father.
On April 12, Nelleson, Green and 20-year-old Armon Braden, waited for his father to return home from work. Once home, the elder Nelleson was threatened with a pellet gun and then bound to a chair with duct tape. They forced the man to write them a $100,000 check as he begged his son not to steal his retirement money. They also stole $800 from his wallet, retrieved his ATM banking passwords and PIN. When George Nellessen threatened to call the police, prosecutors say Nelleson decided that his father needed to be killed.…
