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 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.…

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.

Roseanna KiserCLEARWATER, FL – A North Carolina woman has been arrested in Florida after she became angry with a 7-year-old boy in a hotel pool and poured vodka into his eyes.

Clearwater police say 23-year-old Roseanna Kiser was a guest at the Sheraton Sand Key Hotel who was spending time at the hotel’s pool Monday evening. While drinking from a bottle of vodka in the pool, Kiser became angry with several young children who were also in the pool.

When a 7-year-old boy Kiser didn’t know splashed water near, she responded by pouring some of her vodka directly into the boy’s eyes and face. She then grabbed him around the chest and pushed him away from her.

Police were called to the hotel and found Kiser inside her hotel room. When they tried escorting her off of the premises she began kicking and elbowing the arresting officers in the head, neck, and chest. She also managed to repeatedly kick one cop in the groin with the heel of her foot.

Not These Pit Bulls IdiotCHARLOTTE, NC — Police say 86-year-old Bessie Flowers was mauled to death by her daughter’s two pit bulls after she tripped in fell inside their home.

In the recently released 911 call, Flowers’ daughter can be heard saying “This is an emergency. My dogs attacked and really hurt her. Please come!”

When police arrived at the home, Flowers was dead on the living room floor. She had suffered bites to her head and neck area, and had lost a significant amount of blood.

According to police, Flowers slipped or tripped onto a dog bed. The family’s two pit bulls went over and apparently started playing with her. This playing turned aggressive and then escalated into a full-blown attack.

Flowers’ daughter was eventually able to get the dogs off of her mother and call 911, but it was too late for Flowers.

Flowers’ daughters reportedly refused to sign the dogs over to Animal Care and Control to be held during the investigation into Flowers’ death, so animal control officers seized the dogs.…

Crystal GambinoALEXIS, NC – Crystal Gambino, 42, has been charged with first-degree-murder in the shooting death of her husband, 40-year-old Giovanni Gambino, and a couple from Charlotte.

Gaston County Police were called by Crystal’s brother-in-law who told them that Crystal had informed the family she had caught her husband in bed with another woman and had shot them both.

Crystal also told her family that she had cleaned up the scene “and took care of the bodies,” claiming to have put the dead woman’s body in a wheelbarrow and dumping her on a “burn pile” behind the couple’s home.

However, police say when they went to the home they found the naked bodies of Giovanni Gambino, 39-year-old Geoffrey Gilliland, and 33-year-old Stephanie Sanchez shot to death inside a bedroom.

Gilliland and Sanchez lived together in a $55-a-night motel in Charlotte and were visiting the home, according to police. How Giovanni knew the couple hasn’t been made real clear, but it’s not hard to come up with a couple of scenarios – especially with the following quote:

“These are people that met, had interaction and then came together,” said Gaston County Police Capt.…

Nicholas ClarkBURKE COUNTY, NC – Police have arrested 20-year-old Nicholas Clark and 24-year-old Brittany Hefner after they say they beat their 3-month-old baby to death.

Police responded to the couple’s home after receiving a call about a baby that had stopped breathing. First responders performed CPR on the infant before rushing him to the hospital, along with his twin brother.

Staff at Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston Salem found that both boys had been abused. One was admitted in stable condition, while the other was admitted in critical condition and would die on Tuesday.

According to court documents, the baby died from an assault that caused “serious bodily injury, bleeding on the brain and neck injury.” The documents go on to say that both Clark and Hefner were responsible for the injures both boys suffered.

Hefner and Clark were initially arrested and charged with felony child abuse on Monday and are each being held on $75,000 bond. Additional charges are probably pending following their son’s death.…

Stephanie TillmanDALLAS, NC — Police have charged 30-year-old Stephanie Tillman with child neglect and child abuse after her infant son was found dead on Christmas Eve.

Police were called to Tillman’s home by her boyfriend, Jerry Allen, after he returned home from work to find his 6-month-old son dead on the living room couch.

“He’s beyond help, ma’am. He’s beyond help,” Allen tells the 911 dispatcher. When the 911 dispatcher asked him where Tillman was, he responded that he did not know, but that she was “probably eating another pill.”

Turns out he was pretty accurate on his assumption as he would find Tillman sleeping in the back bedroom with their two daughters, ages 3 and 4.

“I panicked. I went back there to wake her up. I rolled her over and I seen her face was covered in blood. It scared me, I screamed,” Allen would later tell reporters.

When emergency crews arrived, they would confirm that 6-month-old Jerry Allen Jr. was dead. A cause of death has not been released, but the boy’s autopsy was scheduled for yesterday.…
