The incident happened on Friday at the United States Junior Open Wrestling Championship at the State Fair Park.
That’s where a man wearing a baseball cap and padded jacket, was doing some shopping and settled on an 8-year-old boy outside the Jim Norick Arena’s main entrance.
When the man picked the boy up from behind and tried carrying him off, the kid began kicking and screaming until the man figured the kid wasn’t worth all this hassle and let him go before running off.
The Oklahoma City Police Department released footage from the incident in hopes of identifying the man, described as six-feet-tall and heavy-set. They are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235 7300 or leave a tip online at www.okccrimetips.com.
People commenting on the Oklahoma PD’s Facebook post about this incident say there were more than 2,000 children at the event, and that parents are rarely on the competition floor because of the $50 floor pass.…
According to reports, a 16-year-old girl was babysitting a two week old infant when she accidentally burned her.
While giving the infant a bath in the sink under running water, she accidentally turned off the cold water instead of the hot water.
The girl’s mother called the infant’s parents, 25-year-old Patric Eddy and 26-year-old Candace Mercedes, to inform them of what happened.
The couple arrived and took the child home, telling them they were too high on meth to take the child to the hospital right away.
The mother of the babysitter visited the couple’s home the following day to check on the baby and found the infant crying in the bed next to her sleeping parents.
The woman told police the baby was suffering from an “awful” burn on her abdomen and had a diaper full of urine and feces.
The woman woke up Matthews who agreed to let her take the baby to the hospital.…
On Friday, police were called to a hospital to investigate a child abuse call after two infants were brought to an Owasso Urgent Care suffering from extreme malnutrition.
A tearful nurse told the officer that one of the children looked like a skeleton and had severe diaper rash, bedsores, feces in her ear.
Even worse, while the infant was being evaluated by medical staff, a maggot crawled out of the infant’s vagina.
The other infant was extremely skinny, had a major diaper rash, bed sores, and a hair was wrapped around her finger so tight it had gotten infected and skin was growing over it.
When officers interviewed the children’s parents, Kevin Fowler and Aislyn Miller, they said they are “new parents” and not used to taking care of infants.
Miller said they were aware of some of the medical issues the infants were suffering, but that they do not have health insurance and cannot afford the medical bills.…

We first reported on Amber Hilberling back in 2011 after her she pushed her husband, Joshua, through a plate glass window. Police would charge her with murder after Joshua’s fall was stopped by a garage roof 17 floors below.
Hilberling was 19-years-old and seven months pregnant at the time, and went on the news circuit claiming her innocence. This included an appearance on “Dr. Phil” where she claimed her husband’s death was an accident — the result of self-defense and thin windows.
However, a conversation between her and her grandmother in a police interrogation room captured Hilberling calling herself a “horrible person” and asking what kind of person would push her husband out of a window. She also says her husband was messing with a television when she shoved him through the window.
There was also the fact that her husband had filed an emergency protective order against her before his death, claiming she was physically abusive towards him and had brained him so hard with a lamp that he had to get staples and stitches.…

HOLLIS, OK — Jennifer Caswell, the former teacher convicted of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student, was handed a 10 year prison sentence.
In April 2014, Caswell resigned from her position as an English teacher at Hollis Middle School amid allegations that she was having sexual relations with the 15-year-old student
At the time, no charges where filed because prosecutors didn’t have any real evidence anything illegal had taken place. Caswell, who was married and had a 6-year-old, wasn’t admitting to anything and the student said nothing was happening, that Caswell was just a nice teacher.
That all changed a couple months later when she got busted with the boy in a Best Western hotel room – in Mississippi. The boy was there to visit his mother, and Caswell had traveled 650 miles to meet him on the down-low.
