Klamath, CA - Two years ago we reported on Jarrod Wyatt, a mixed-martial artist who was accused of ripping out his friend’s heart after the two ingested some hallucinogenic mushroom tea. Last Thursday, Wyatt pleaded guilty to murder and mayhem charges.
Back in March 2010, a then 26-year-old Wyatt and his sparring partner, 21-year-old Taylor Powell, were drinking tea brewed with hallucinogenic mushrooms. People who were at the home at the time stated Wyatt began mumbling about a coming tidal wave and the end of the world before he started fighting with Powell. When Wyatt and Powell were left alone in the home, Wyatt became convinced Powell was the devil.
When one of their friends showed up at the home later, he saw Wyatt on the couch next to his Powell’s mutilated corpse. Wyatt had removed most of Powell’s face, including his tongue, and had cut out his heart while the man was still alive. According to the probable cause statement, “a large incision in the chest could be seen, and other unspecified body parts had been removed.…Continue Reading
A security guard at a Motel 6 contacted police to report he had heard a loud argument going on between a man and women in one of the motel’s third-floor rooms. He told them that when he went to investigate, he witnessed Cristal Richardson walking down the hall naked and covered in blood.
Responding police were let into the room by the motel manager, and there they found the dead body of 34-year-old Cedric Owens. According to the medical report, Owens had suffered, “multiple stab wounds to his upper body, his throat was cut and there was traumatic amputation of the penis and scrotum.”
Richardson was treated at the hospital for minor, offensive injuries to her hands before being booked on a charge of murder with bond set at $200,000.
The two were casual acquaintances who both have criminal records that include assault and drug related convictions. Richardson’s attorney said she had simply acted in self-defense.…Continue Reading
According to court document, 27-year-old Harry E. Klages II had a party at his apartment in Massena, New York in January 2008. Andrew W. Lesperance, 51, attended the party and reportedly only met Klages earlier that night. Police were called after Klages phoned his father to say he had done something “he wasn’t very proud of.”
Responding police would find Lesperance with one eyeball gouged out, the other eyeball sliced, his abdomen cut, his leg nearly severed below his hip, and having had his genitals cut off. All of this courtesy of Klages, who was reported to be intoxicated, high, and ‘possibly using other drugs.’
Klages would later claim that he attacked Lesperance in response to ‘sexual misconduct,’ but prosecutors called “bullshit.” Klages – who was on probation at the time of the attack – would accept a plea deal in 2009 that resulted in a sentence of 38 years in prison.…Continue Reading
Jackson, MI– Since the decapitated body of 59 year-old Shirley Meeks was found in her Reed Manor apartment on Saturday, police have arrested her neighbor and information has come to light concerning a man that may be as deeply troubled as he is intelligent… and who is certainly as fascinating as anything on television.
Meeks was found in her apartment by her neighbors. There were signs of forced entry and blood all over the walls. Reports now indicate that her head had been removed.
Pictured for your enjoyment is 46 year-old Leo Joseph Kwaske. If he looks a tad effeminate in his mugshot, it may have something to do with the fact that when police arrested him, Kwaske was dressed as a woman. I mention this not because we here at the DD are hate-mongers or homophobes (as members of another website may or may not have suggested- thanks for the hits, at least) but because it took me a good 20 minutes to realize this was not a picture of the victim.…Continue Reading
North Naples, FL — Florida State Attorney’s Office released a 200-page document Wednesday describing the crime scene encountered by Collier County deputies when they responded to a 911 call on July 26th of this year. It was not good.
The call to 911 was made by the parents of the apartment dweller, Christopher Serna, 34. Serna’s parents had reportedly found him in the apartment covered in blood and thought he had been the victim of an assault.
The new documents from the State Attorney’s Office, however, describe Collier County deputies finding the bloody Serna sitting on a black box shaking uncontrollably. He wouldn’t respond to their questions.
With little progress being made, a deputy went looking around the apartment. In the living room, the deputy found the head of a woman who would later be identified as Suzanne Bishop, 45. Documents describe a metal rod with a black rubber handle protruding from her head.
Suzanne Bishop’s body was discovered on the floor of the master bedroom. Next to her, investigators saw two knives and a baseball bat.…Continue Reading
This was not a typical bar fight, though. This time – after one of the men got the upper hand – he reportedly administered a beatdown that was described as “barbaric.” There isn’t much doubt, either. The whole thing was recorded on a security camera mounted on the front of the club.
According to police, Laurence Richard McGinn, 28, confronted an unidentified 31-year-old victim outside a popular nightspot, Funkybox, at 6:20am on Saturday – just after the club closed. Liverpool licensing officer PC Stuart Moore described the fight like this:
The footage shows a fight between two males. The victim and the assailant could be seen brawling in the street. Both males fall to the floor and there’s a struggle. A second male appears to be protecting the people [fighting] to make sure the fight continues and the assailant starts reigning blows [on the victim].
There are nine consecutive punches while he lies on the floor.…Continue Reading
OKLAHOMA CITY – Charges of animal cruelty have been filed against 20-year-old Angelina Barnes in the Oklahoma County district court after authorities say she mutilated the 15-year-old family cat.
Barnes’ relative arrived at their Oklahoma City home in March to total darkness. ”There were things done to the house like covering light switches with duct tape so she wouldn’t be able to turn on the light,” OKC MSgt. Gary Knight said.
Barnes was found in an outfit she planned to wear to the Lady Gaga concert; a long rain coat and streaks of what turned out to be cat blood on her face, according to the court affidavit.
Barnes’ relative “became very afraid that the suspect was going to try to do harm to her,” MSgt. Knight said. The police officer reported Barnes asked her step-aunt for help and was taken to a hospital. There, she “pulled a jagged piece of glass from her purse and said she was going to hurt the male intake nurse,” the officer reported.
Back at the scene, investigators found purple hair dye and blood all over the bathroom along with the dead cat.…Continue Reading
New York --While I continue to fight connection issues today, here are a couple stories that were meant to go up yesterday. Starting with the 400-lb Bronx man who was found murdered in his apartment, stuffed inside a duffel bag.
The body of 52-year-old Angel Rondon was found after a neighbor called 911 to complain about the putrid smell coming from his sixth-floor apartment. Inside Rondon’s flat, police found an apartment covered in blood with cleaning products scattered throughout. They also found a bloody hatchet on the kitchen floor and inside the kitchen closet, they found the large duffel bag containing Rondon’s body, leaking a steady stream of blood.
I know, you’re thinking that must have been one hell of a duffel bag to be able to hold the dead body of a man who weighed 400 pounds. But it seems that the killer(s) simply played a bloody game of Jenga, dismembering the poor man before stuffing his parts in the bag. An autopsy showed Rondon died from massive blunt force trauma to his head and several skull fractures.…Continue Reading
You know when Sheriff Garcia calls a suspect a “rabid dog” that they must have done something really, really messed up and if 39-year-old Gregory Longoria Jr. is guilty of what he has been accused of, I’d say Garcia was holding back.
After being separated from his common-law wife for six months, Longoria became enraged when he thought she was seeing another man. So he told the 33-year-old woman that if she and their 1-year-old toddler did not go back to his apartment, he would kill her and everyone in her family. She had no reason to doubt this as Longoria has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1989 that include charges of theft, attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault of a family member and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
Once there, Longoria forced her to undress and began taking obscene pictures of her.…Continue Reading
Hickory, NC — Police have charged a 19-year-old with murder after a man was killed in what some investigators are calling one of the most bloodiest crime scenes they’ve seen in years.
Early this morning, Michael Anderson, 19, called 911 to report he had shot his roommate, 36-year-old Stephen Starr. When police arrived at the home, they found Starr’s dead body laying on a bed in the front bedroom.
He’d been fatally shot with both a handgun and a shotgun then had his body hacked up with an axe. Not quite satisfied with their handiwork, the killer used a knife to carve words into his body. A pen was used to write even more.
Anderson was taken into custody at the scene and charged with murder this afternoon. He told WBTV’s Steve Ohnsesorge that he was “sorry” to Starr’s family.
Investigators are also trying to determine exactly what the relationship between Starr and Anderson was besides them being roommates. Anderson told police that the two were just friends, but a neighbor said Starr introduced the teen as his son — which he is not.…Continue Reading
Louisville, KY — Dubbed the “Craigslist Cat Killer,” 24-year-old Alex Phelps appeared before a judge last Friday and entered a plea of not guilty to torturing and mutilating four cats over the past two months, later claiming he did it for research purposes. The bodies started showing up in early December. Two cats were found in a shopping cart behind a Kroger grocery store in early December – sources say their legs were bound together and their stomachs had been sliced open. Another cat was found right before Christmas, and yet another just last Saturday. All were killed in a similar manner. Brutally. “I’ve been a policeman for 20 years and this is the first where the injuries to the animal were that significant,” said Sgt. Troy Thompson, Louisville Metro Police Department Seventh Division. “They were stabbed multiple times and their intestines were out. Pretty extensive injuries.” Detectives questioned Phelps after receiving an anonymous tip and he reportedly admitted to killing the cats that were found in December. Police believe Phelps found his furry victims on Craigslist.…Continue Reading
Gulf Breeze, FL – If you aren’t totally creeped out by Matthew Foote’s maniacal looking mugshot, you might be by the time you finish reading this story. Foote is set to undergo a psych eval after stabbing, suffocating, skinning and burning the family dog – a 7-year-old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix named Sasha. His father called 911 after returning home from Mass on Sunday and reported the mutilation. When questioned, a calm and cooperative Foote first told investigators that he believed the dog was possessed by Jesus. He then corrected himself and said the dog was possessed by Satan. Soooo, he got stabby. He slit the dog’s throat and chest – when she didn’t die right away, he held her mouth closed until she suffocated. He then took her body into the backyard and proceeded to gut and skin her. Foote dug a shallow grave, placed Sasha’s body inside, doused it with gasoline and lit a match. What was left of the body was buried and the skin and entrails were dumped in a wooded area nearby.…Continue Reading
Everett, WA – In case one knife-wielding parental unit hacking on the offspring wasn’t enough for you, I give you 26-year-old Christopher Isaiah Eaves. Back in October, Eaves started having some mental health issues and has since been involuntarily hospitalized twice. And recently, in a move that occurs way too fucking much, he stopped taking his medications, which perhaps contributed to his obsession over having his 11-month-old circumcised. His family rightfully has been very concerned about him, to the point that they were considering hospitalization again, and his wife refused to leave their son home alone with him. So, when Mrs. Eaves had to work on Tuesday, the child was left in the home not only with his daddy but also his grandma and aunt. Long story short: one door torn off its hinges, two knives, and several physical altercations between Grandma and her son, Eaves’s little boy is awaiting evaluation by a urologist to determine if Daddy’s handiwork will have lasting implications.…Continue Reading
Guangdong, China – A woman has been accused of dragging her screaming, 6-year-old step-daughter into the kitchen and slicing off her left ear with a knife. When the little girl tried to run away, the woman grabbed the girl, placed her hand on a cutting block and then chopped off four of her fingers on her right hand. The biological father of the girl took her to a nearby hospital and left her there with $1,200 for her treatment. Aside from the missing ear and fingers, hospital staff also found stab wounds near the girl’s genitals. No one knows what sparked the attack, but neighbors say that the couple are not poor and have two younger children, the victim from her father’s previous relationship. Neighbors describe the father as a nice man, but his wife as odd and snobbish. It is also being reported that the victim did not live with her father and his wife, but was simply visiting that day with her nanny. The girl is refusing to talk about what happened to her and said: “I can’t tell even if you kill me.” I have included a news report on this but be warned that it is not in English and there is some graphic video of the girl in the hospital that show her wounds.…Continue Reading
Macomb County, MI - Mohammed Abdul-Fazal Chowdhury, 22, was accused of the Sept. 2009 stabbing death of his wife, 25-year-old Suraia Miah (she was also his cousin). She had been stabbed more than 60 times in the face, torso, head and neck, and was nearly beheaded. When police arrived at the couple’s apartment, they discovered Miah face down in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor. Their 2-year-old son was sleeping in another room. Chowdhury initially told police that a trio of men broke into their apartment and murdered her. He was later arrested and charged with her murder and was sitting in the Macomb County Jail awaiting trial. But on Friday, he was found dead in his cell. He had used a razor blade from a shaving tool available through the jail’s commissary to cut off his genitals, and then to slit his own throat. If that isn’t strange enough, officials have not been able to find his dick. Jail officials did not hear or see anything as Chowdhury had shut the door and covered the window of the room.…Continue Reading

Her murderer is still at large. …Continue Reading
WAUKEGAN, Ill. - The father of a 4-month old boy was visiting his girlfriend in a Waukegan apartment Saturday night. Placing the infant on the couch, surrounded by blankets, the couple went into another room to sleep. Sometime early Sunday, the girlfriend was wakened by the sound of the infant screaming. She found that her pet dachshund, which had been left with the infant, had chewed through the diapers and eaten the boys genitals. The boy was taken to Lutheran General Hospital …Continue Reading
Tennessee - While the news has been populated by what Britney Spears is doing with her hair, or whether Paris Hilton will see jail time for driving without a license – all newsworthy items, for sure – have you read about the case that is about to go to trial regarding a couple by the name of Channon Christian, a 21-year-old University of Tennessee student, and her 23-year-old boyfriend Christopher Newsom?
It’s amazing if you haven’t as it involves two young people being abducted, raped, tortured and murdered by another group of people in house in a Tennessee neighborhood. The investigation into their deaths led to the arrest of Lemaricus Davidson, 25; his brother, Letalvis Cobbins, 24; George Thomas, 24; and Cobbins’ former girlfriend, Vanessa Coleman, 18, and Eric Boyd, 34.
Even more details have been trickling out in the manner of Channon and Christopher’s death. Christopher was gang-raped, possibly had his genitals cut off, shot and burned. This was all done in front of Channon. Channon was also was gang raped over several days, urinated on, made to drink household cleaner, had a breast removed, possibly while still alive, strangled and then cut into multiple pieces.…Continue Reading
