Bronx, NY – Police say 9-year-old Justice Williams hanged herself in the shower, possibly depressed over the birth of a sibling.
Justice’s mother made the horrific discovery Sunday night after checking on her daughter because she was taking too long in the shower. When she entered the bathroom, she found Justice motionless, with a white cloth around her neck hanging from the metal shower frame door.
Justice was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead minutes later. Sources say Justice had recently seen a therapist for help dealing with the birth of new half-sibling. She told family members she “wanted to die” when the new baby was born nearly a year ago, prompting her mother to get her professional help.
Despite this, her family is shocked that Justice would take her own life. She seemed to have adjusted well with her new sibling in the home, was performing well at school and never mentioned any type of bullying.
Yesterday, Justice’s death was officially ruled a suicide by the medical examiner. This makes Justice Williams the second pre-teen to kill themselves in the Bronx in less than a year.…Continue Reading

On the night she was murdered, Bowen was at Ward’s apartment to visit her children. She was six weeks pregnant and Ward said he did not believed the child was his.

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. – Police say 44-year-old Lisa Franklin, a substitute teacher at the Sacred Heart School,was having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy that started when the boy was just 12.
Franklin met the boy at Sacred Heart School and was able to continue a relationship with him, after she left the school in 2012, by befriending the boy’s parents and becoming his personal, at-home tutor as well as being allowed to spend social time with the boy.
“The parents trusted that she was acting as an adult and doing the proper thing,’” said New Windsor Deputy Police Chief Rick Hovey. After the parents found some text messages revealing Franklin was teaching their son how to put his erect penis into her 44-year-old mouth, they cock-blocked him by notifying police.
Police ended up arresting Franklin, who is married with two teenage children of her own, and charged her with second-degree rape and sexual conduct against a child. Additional charges are expected because Franklin allegedly took the boy to multiple jurisdictions so he could throw his hot dog down her hallway.…Continue Reading

Bronx, NY - Surveillance video captured a pit bull attacking a 6-year-old girl walking on a sidewalk in the Bronx Sunday afternoon.
In the video you can see as the girl and her grandmother are walking down Webster Avenue when the dog charges after the girl from across the street, latches on to her, then starts dragging the little girl around the sidewalk.
The girl’s grandmother tries desperately to protect her, to no avail. Other people rush in and start kicking the pit bull and are finally able to pull it off of the girl.
“At first the dog tried to bite her in the face, but he grabbed the jacket, he bit her on the leg,” said Eduardo Candelier, who was one of the people who rushed in to help. ”The girl was crying, she was going crazy.”

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – According to police, 39-year-old Eric Bischoff was arrested after he became angry at his wife over a photo she’d posted on the Internet and then hit over the head with an iPad.
According to court records, Bischoff and his wife got into an argument at their home about 12:40 a.m. last Saturday over a “picture displayed on the Internet.” Bischoff, who had been drinking, discovered Apple has an app for that and hit his wife in the head with an iPad a couple of times. She tried to get away, but he allegedly pulled her hair before throwing her to the floor of their backyard patio.

If you guessed that the wonky-eyed wonder to the left is the alleged stripper in question, you win!
That, my friends, is 24-year-old Aydrea Meaders. Miss Meaders did all that was right this past Friday night – she got herself ready and attended her children’s school assembly at the North Albany Academy in Albany, as any responsible parent should. One thing she forgot to do was to start the party AFTER the assembly ended…
“Suddenly she stepped to the front of the group threw off her coat and stripped from the waist up,” said Ron Lesko of the Albany School District.
Yep, Aydrea got up on stage when the assembly started and proceeded to get naked and dance. Perhaps she thought some parents might see what their daughters may end up doing if they don’t make their kids focus on academics. It isn’t known what her intent with the strip and dancing gross out was.…Continue Reading
NORTH TONAWANDA, NY – Police have charged 23-year-old Jennifer Marchant with murder after the retired porn actress allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the neck with a steak knife.
Last Wednesday night, police responded to the apartment of Marchant and her 24-year-old boyfriend, Ralph Stone. According to police, Marchant had outfitted Stone with a hole to the neck that wasn’t quite working out.
Paramedics tried saving Stone, but he would die a short while later. Police say the wound was caused by Marchant stabbing the man with a steak knife. Both Marchant and Stone had a history of arrests.
Police have not given a motive, or revealed if Marchant has even confessed to stabbing Stone, but she has been charged with second-degree murder and is currently being held without bail. On Monday, Marchant entered a plea of not guilty while her attorney’s claim she was acting in self-defense.
Her Twitter account states she retired from porn last year, but Marchant has numerous videos online under the name Scarlett Rougue and normally featured in the BBW (Big Beautiful Women) category of most online porn sites.…Continue Reading
According to the documents provided by the fine folks over at The Smoking Gun, the doting dipshit passed a couple of Oxy pills to her spawn during a jailhouse visit Tuesday.
Deputies have not indicated whether there was any tongue involved in the alleged transfer.
The spawn, 30-year-old William Partridge, was being detained at the facility on weapons charges, and is now facing an additional charge of promoting prison contraband. He will be arraigned on the new charges Monday.
Police say the drugs were intended for Partridge’s personal use, not for resale.
Mom, Kimberly Margeson, was charged with a felony drug count and one misdemeanor count of promoting prison contraband.
After posting $2,000 bail, Margeson was released. She has since pleaded not guilty to both charges.
Now, if you’ll pardon me, I must find a pointy stick so I can dig that nasty visual out of my brain space.…Continue Reading
New City, NY – Two homes listed on the interactive map of legal gun owners published by The Journal News have been broken into in the last week.
The most recent burglary happened on Wednesday when a man returned home to find someone had broken into his home and made off with jewelry and two safes. One of those safes contained two handguns and two handgun permits. This comes less than a week after a family in White Plains, NY had their home broken into by thieves who also made off with some jewelry and tried breaking into a gun safe.
Both of these homes were listed on an interactive map that contained the names, addresses and home locations of thousands of pistol permit holders licensed in Westchester and Rockland counties, New York. This very controversial map was compiled and published by The Journal News on Dec 23.
Police say that there is no correlation between the map and the two break-ins, stating that they feel the houses were targeted at random. “The burglary is still under investigation, and there are no facts to support this correlation at this time,” Clarkstown Sgt.…Continue Reading
Walton, NY – A 27-year-old woman has been accused of making a series of posts on Facebook that threatened children and their families. Keep reading, as you won’t believe the level of stupidity this woman possesses.
Over the weekend, several Walton children and teenagers were getting death threats and pornography from an individual using various Facebook accounts (including this one and this one). The profiles used the same picture of two little girls that they stated they wanted to kill, as well as images of dead children tagged with the names of local Walton youth.
The person was also hacking into other Walton residents’ Facebook accounts to post even more harassing messages to the children, even going as far as asking if they should duplicate the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
This prompted police to monitor the local schools and for school administrators to cancel all outside school activities. They also informed parents the school doors would be locked during the day and that the staff had been made aware of the situation.…Continue Reading
Malverne, NY – The parents of a 17-year-old boy who crashed his car and killed four of his friends back in October are now being charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle for allowing him to drive without a valid driver’s license.
On October 8th, 17 year old Joseph Beer was driving with his four 17-18 year old friends as passengers. Around 3:40 am, he was doing about 110 mph when he lost control of his vehicle on a stretch of road called “Dead Man’s Curve.” The car flew into the woods and split in two after hitting a tree. Chris Khan, Peter Kanhai and Darian Ramnarine, all 18, and Neal Rajapa, 17, were all killed in the crash, none of whome were wearing their seatbelt. Joseph was wearing a seat belt and survived.
He is now facing 25 years in prison after being charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated vehicular homicide, vehicular manslaughter in the first degree, four counts of manslaughter in the second degree, and a whole host of other charges that are just different configurations of the words manslaughter, degree and reckless. The driving while intoxicated charge is creating a bit of a stir because he had not been drinking, but did have marijuana in his system.…Continue Reading
BATAVIA, NY — Last year we reported on Jacquetta Simmons, the woman who punched an elderly Walmart worker in the face after being asked to show her receipt. Last week a judge sentenced Simmons to five years in prison.
On Christmas Eve of last year, 26-year-old Jacquetta Simmons and her male companion were leaving a Walmart after having purchased some items at the electronics section located in the back of the store.
When 70-year-old Grace Suozzi asked to check her receipts against the items she was carrying out, Simmons punched the elderly woman in the face, knocking her to the ground and fracturing the bones in the side of her face.
Simmons and her friend fled to the parking lot but other employees and customers quickly surrounded their car and prevented them from leaving until police showed up. Simmons was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree assault, and released later on $40,000 bond.
Simmons would plead not guilty, but a jury would end up finding Simmons guilty in August and convict her under the state’s “Granny Law,” a law that gives stiffer penalties for assaulting anyone 65 or older.…Continue Reading
New York, NY – It’s been almost a year since Jerome Isaac sprayed Delores Gillespie with gasoline and then set her on fire as she stood in an elevator. Yesterday he pleaded guilty to her murder in a deal that will have him serving 50 years in prison.
For those of you who may have missed this heinous story, 47-year-old Jerome Isaac had lived with 71-year-old Delores Gillespie doing odd jobs, and was angry after she kicked him out without paying him the $2,200 he says she owed her for five months of housework. Friends of Gillespie say the woman kicked Isaac out after she found that he had been stealing from her.
In either case, Isaac decided to get his revenge in one of the most worst ways imaginable. Surveillance footage captures Gillespie as she is about to step out of an elevator on the fifth floor of her apartment building after buying groceries. That’s when Isaac barges in while wearing an exterminator’s outfit. He sprays Gillespie in the face and body with gasoline from a canister he is carrying, then lights her on fire.…Continue Reading
STATEN ISLAND, NY – I’m just getting back from vacation and behind on the news, so I’m just going to post some stories I found interesting, starting with the 15-year-old high school freshman who jumped in front of a train last week because she was tired of being bullied by members of her high school’s football team.
Felicia Garcia, a 15-year-old student at Tottenville High School, was being picked on because of rumors that she slept with multiple members of the football team at a party held after a game. After school administrators heard about the rumors, they met with Garcia and the 17-year-old boy who was singled out as the main instigator.
Reports are that the meeting ended with Garcia running out while shouting at the boy. Her friends say that Garcia normally didn’t let the bullying bother her. She’d already had a tough life with her parents dying when she was young and being bounced between foster homes after running away from her aunt’s home to be with an older man.…Continue Reading
Forest Hills, NY – Gilberto Valle, a married 6-year veteran of the New York Police Department, was arrested in Queens yesterday on charges that he was conspiring to kidnap, rape, cook, and eat a number of female acquaintances.
Pretty much all the evidence against the 28-year-old Valle is in the form of e-mails and instant messages which discussed his plans to “kidnap, rape, torture, kill, cook and eat body parts of a number of women,” according to the complaint against the officer. Though Valle, who works at the 26th Precinct in Manhattan, never actually followed through on any of his plans, the evidence was enough to officially charge him with federal kidnapping conspiracy.
It’s pretty clear that Valle put some serious thought into his plots though. In one conversation with a co-conspirator, he mentioned that he would like cook someone “over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible,” according to the complaint, which describes two specific plans.
The first plan allegedly involved a $5,000 kidnap-for-hire in which Valle believed that his customer was interested in raping the woman in question.…Continue Reading
Brooklyn, NY – Vindalee Smith, a 38-year-old mother of four, was found dead in her Brooklyn apartment on Saturday, lying in a pool of blood from slash and stab wounds to her neck. She was to be married to her fiancé, Anthony Jackman, on Sunday at New Dimension Seventh Day Adventist Church in Brownsville. Sources are indicating, however, that Jackman is still legally married to another woman in New Jersey.
The baby Smith was carrying was due in just two weeks, but did not survive the attack. Smith’s other four children are older and did not live with her.
Police questioned Jackman, but they report that he is not currently a suspect. Authorities believe, however, that Smith did know her attacker, as there was no sign of forced entry.
Another lead police are investigating is a luke-warm one. Smith had previously had an argument with a former neighbor who threatened to kill her. That incident occurred months ago, however, and the tension seemed to evaporate once she’d moved away.
In a “WTF” twist on the case, police report that they found a note at the crime scene. It states that one pregnant woman will be killed each week until the “D.C.…Continue Reading
Buffalo, NY - A man has been found guilty of beating his 10-year-old stepson to death with a rolling pin after arguing with the boy about homework.
Prosecutors say that on April 17, 10-year-old Abdifatah Mohamud climbed out a window of his home and ran down the street. A neighbor driving by saw the boy running with his stepfather, 41-year-old Mohamed Mohamud, chasing after him. She pulled over and gave Mohamud a ride so he could catch up to his stepson.
After catching up to the boy, Abdi told the woman he did not want to go back home with his stepfather, but Mohamud pulled Abdi into the vehicle and the neighbor took them back home. The neighbor said she stood at the entrance and asked Abdi if he wanted to come study at her house, but Mohamud told her he wasn’t going to do anything to the boy and she could leave.
According to Mohamud, Abdi would not stop trying to flee the house after the neighbor left, so he used electrical cord to tie him to a chair in the basement.…Continue Reading
Greenwich Village, NY — Last October we reported on the McDonald’s employee caught on camera as he used a metal bar to beat the crap out of two women who had jumped the counter and tried to attack him. That same McDonald’s is back in the news today after a customer got into an argument with a gay couple, then used a razor to slash one of them in the face and neck.
The attack happened on Wednesday after 24-year-old Jamar McLeod and his transgender girlfriend, Jalisa “JoJo” Griffen, stopped in the McDonald’s so Griffen could use the bathroom. The couple were holding hands and talking about their freinds being attacked for being gay when a man waiting on a cheeseburger confronted them.
He began making anti-gay statements and threatened to beat up Griffen after she went to use the ladies restroom instead of the men’s. McLeod stood up for his girlfriend and told the man that he wasn’t laying a hand on Griffen and that he would have to fight him instead.…Continue Reading
Brooklyn, NY – A 69-year-old man has been arrested after he poured acid on his daughter’s face.
On Saturday afternoon, Jerome Lynch’s 49-year-old daughter, Darlene Lynch, had stopped by to visit him at his apartment. As she sat on a couch in her father’s living room, Jerome splashed her in the face with something in a cup he was holding. At first she thought her father had poured water on her, but after her face started melting off she realized she was wrong.
Police say what Jerome had poured on his daughter was actually a cup full of the drain cleaner El Diablo, which contains 98 percent sulfuric acid. Darlene ran out of the apartment screaming when the burning started, witnesses saying her clothing was disintegrating and her skin was falling off her face.
“Her skin looked like melting wax. And then her whole eye lid was melted. The whole left side from her face all the way down to her feet,” said her neighbor, Clarisse Shakespeare.
Neighbors ran to help Darlene, pouring water on her and removing her clothing.…Continue Reading
