CHARLOTTE, NC – Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said 34-year-old Christina Treadway killed her two children before committing suicide by jumping off a highway bridge.

Police responding to a call about a woman who committed suicide Saturday afternoon found the body of Treadway on Interstate 485 after she jumped off the Old Gum Branch Road bridge.

Officials say “key information” led police to Treadway’s home where they found the dead woman’s two children, 7-year-old Isaiah Miller and 3-year-old Iliyah Miller, were alone and badly injured.

Responding paramedics and firefighters tried to save the children’s lives as they were transported to Carolinas Medical Center, but they were both pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

CMPD officials said their investigation revealed that Treadway physically assaulted her children before jumping off the bridge and killing herself.

Investigators are looking into what would cause Treadway to harm her children. The father of the two kids has been located and is not considered a suspect.

“Obviously, that’s at the core of this investigation: What would cause someone to be so despondent to want to take their own life and take the lives of their children,” said CMPD Maj.…

JACKSONVILLE, NC – The FBI has joined the search for Mariah Kay Woods, the 3-year-old girl who has been missing since Sunday night.

Kristy Woods said she last saw her daughter at about 11 p.m. Sunday night. Her live-in boyfriend saw her an hour later when he checked in on her after she woke up and he told her to go back to sleep.

When Woods went to check on the her the next morning, the girl was not in her room. She called authorities at around 6 a.m. after being unable to find her.

Since then, federal agents have joined K-9 units and helicopters to search the wooded areas near the family’s rural home, as well the grounds of Camp Lejeune.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office believe the girl was abducted and have issued a statewide alert asking for people to be on the lookout for the girl.

She’s described as having blond hair and blue eyes and weighing about 30 pounds. Her grandmother added that she usually walks with orthopedic braces.…

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – The Army veteran who filmed herself tying her service dog a tree before she and her boyfriend shot it to death has committed suicide.

For those of you who may have missed the original story, 23-year-old Marinna Rollins got herself into a bit of trouble last month when she decided to get rid of her service dog.

Rollins had adopted the dog from her estranged husband because he was being deployed to South Korea for a year. Rollins renamed the gray-and-white male pit bull Camboui while also having him certified as her emotional support dog.

Rollins received a medical retirement from the Army in January and her family and friends say she struggled with PTSD and was diagnosed with additional mental health issues.

However, Rollins would soon tell a friend that raising “Cam” was too expensive and would post a message on Facebook that made it seem as if she was re-homing the dog.

“Great last day with the pooch!” she posted. “Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to :)”

Turns out, Camboui was headed out in the dark woods with Rollins and her boyfriend, 25-year-old Jarren Heng.…

ZEBULON, NC – Police have an 18-year-old in custody after he was found holding his mother’s decapitated head.

According to police, Oliver Funez called police Monday after he attacked his mother, 35-year-old Yesenia Funez Beatriz Machado.

When police arrived at the home, they witnessed Michael Myers Funez walking outside holding his mother’s head in one hand, and a large butcher knife in the other.

Funez was taken into custody without incident and has since been charged with first-degree murder. Officials say a motive behind the attack is still unclear.

Police also found two young children in the home, who were present when the attack occurred. Another child was at school at the time of the attack.

All three children are now with their father, who showed up at the scene that afternoon and was overcome with grief.

“It’s a terrible situation for the family, a terrible situation for the neighborhood and this county. I’m just glad things worked out the way they did and no one else was hurt in taking the suspect into custody,” Sheriff Kent Winstead said.…

Shelby, NC — A 49-year-old man is in custody after allegedly attempting to grab a 1-year-old child from her mother’s arms at Walmart earlier this week.

The child’s mother, Tiana Langer, claims a strange man approached her and her child in the store and started talking all cute with the kid.

“He said, ‘How did you get that cutie?’ and I just thought he was being friendly,” Langer said.

He then apparently grabbed the kid’s arm and started rubbing it, saying she could “go home with him.” At this point, mom’s getting a little freaked.

She told him, “No, we don’t go to strangers and we don’t talk to them.” To which he responded, “I’m not a stranger. I’m just a friend she hasn’t been with yet.”

He apparently started tugging on the kid’s arm, but mom tugged back and both managed to safely retreat.

According to police, surveillance video later showed the man, identified as Eric Richardson, holding another child near the entrance of the store, but it didn’t appear as if that child’s mother was worried.…

RALEIGH, NC – Police say a man who broke into the apartment of his ex-girlfriend was arrested after a man inside fed him a piece of firewood.

According to police, 27-year-old Matthew Bergstedt kicked in the back door of his former girlfriend’s apartment for reasons not currently being reported.

Unfortunately for Bergstedt, his face met a piece of firewood swung by a 20-year-old man who was inside the apartment.

After being turned into a panda, Bergstedt fled the apartment and broke into an empty apartment in the same complex.

Police responding to a burglary call at the apartment complex apprehended Bergstedt and booked him into the Wake County Jail on charges of breaking and entering and attempted breaking and entering.

He has since been released after posting a $3,000 bond.

Bergstedt should count himself lucky. Sure he looks hilarious, but as we have reported numerous times before, he could have gotten his ass shot. Or, like what happened with another intruder earlier this year, had his hand chopped off with a machete.…

HILLSBOROUGH, NC – Police have charged a man after an unmanned construction truck rolled down a hill and killed a 5-year-old boy standing in his driveway.

The incident happened the day after Christmas in a subdivision that is still in the process of being built. An unmanned truck that was being loaded with dirt “became loose and rolled down the hill,” said Hillsborough spokeswoman Catherine Wright.

The truck rolled down a hill, snapped overhead power lines, and through several yards before crashing into the side of a house.

Several children were playing soccer in the driveway of the home before it was hit, and 5-year-old William Copeland was unable to get out of the way. He was struck by the truck and died from his injuries.

Police determined Alejandro Suarez was responsible for the truck and ensuring it was properly secured, and charged him with misdemeanor death by vehicle. He was booked into the Orange County Jail on a $10,000 secured bond.

“We will also be following up the investigation, looking at the mechanical condition of the vehicle and confirming all of the working relationships, regarding specifically which company the crew was working for,” said Hillsborough Police Chief Duane Hampton.…

The shooting happened Saturday night at the home of 38-year-old Misty Michelle Flowers, a Lincoln County deputy, who was hosting a Halloween party.

At some point, Flowers decided to show off her service weapon and accidentally fired it. The bullet went through a wall and struck Flower’s 11-year-old daughter in the stomach.

pizza-hutCHARLOTTE, NC – An employee at a Charlotte Pizza Hut used his own handgun to shoot and kill one of three armed men who were robbing the store.

The incident happened early Sunday morning at around 1:40 a.m. after the store had closed. Three armed men came into the restaurant and were in the process of robbing it when they found out one of the employees had a gun of his own.

The employee shot at the armed robbers, hitting and killing 28-year-old Michael Renard Grace. Police said Grace was carrying a gun when he was shot and that they recovered the weapon at the scene.

His two accomplices fled the scene and have not been captured at this time. When they are, they are in for a world of hurt as they will more than likely be charged with Grace’s death.

Erica ParsonsROWAN COUNTY, NC – Five years after she disappeared, and three years after she was reported missing, the skeletal remains of 13-year-old Erica Parsons have been found.

For those of you who may not remember this case, here’s a quick refresher:

Erica was adopted by Casey and Sandy Parsons when she was two weeks old. In 2013, Erica’s step-brother reported her missing, but investigators would learn no one had seen the girl since 2011.

Casey and Sandy said they’d sent her to live with a relative in Asheville, but it turned out the relative didn’t exist. Over the next several months, police searched several properties but could not find Erica.

In 2014, Casey and Sandy were convicted on 76 federal charges for taking benefits for adoption assistance during the time Erica was missing. Casey was sentenced to 10 years, and Sandy was sentenced to eight years.

In July, Erica’s aunt and adoptive sister said they believed Erica was dead and that Casey and Sandy Parsons knew where Erica’s body was located.…

Milina HarrisGREENVILLE, NC – Police have charged a woman with murder after she reportedly doused her mother with boiling water before stabbing her to death.

Police were called to an apartment early Wednesday morning after 20-year-old Milina Harris threw boiling water on her sleeping mother before stabbing her multiple times.

Harris’ mom, 47-year-old Tamara Joyner, was rushed to Vidant Medical Center with life-threatening injuries where she would die later that afternoon.

Harris, who was initially charged with attempted first degree murder, has been charged with first-degree murder. She is currently in the Pitt County Detention Center on a $2 million bond.

When Harris made her first appearance before a judge, she wore chains, handcuffs and a padded green cover up used for people who are at risk of suicide.

A motive isn’t known at this time and the investigation is still ongoing. Whatever the reasoning, you got to really, really hate someone to pour boiling water on them while they are sleeping and then start stabbing them.
