Milwaukie, OR – Who says you can’t teach an old perv new tricks? Jared Walter, also known as the TriMet Barber, has found himself back in jail after being caught jacking off into a woman’s hair.
TriMet transit police arrested the 26-year-old Monday afternoon as he waited for a bus in downtown Portland. Earlier that day, a woman reported that Walter had shot his wad into a woman hair while inside a TriMet bus. Video from a surveillance camera inside the bus even caught him in the act.
Police believe Walter has done the same thing to at least two other women in the same way in the last three weeks. ”At the time of those first two reports, the victims were unsure as to what had transpired, and the seriousness of the offense was not understood,” Sgt. Pete Simpson said in a news release.
Jared Walter was charged with third-degree sexual abuse, public indecency, harassment and interfering with public transportation. He is being held on $22,000 bail, but still faces an accusation of violating post-prison supervision in Clackamas County.…Continue Reading
Clackamas, OR - Hugo Avalos-Chanon died a horrible death other day after the 41-=year-old cleaning contractor fell into a mechanical blender at a meat-processing plant.
Avalos-Chanon worked for DCS Sanitation Management Inc., which performs daily cleaning of equipment at Interstate Meat Distributors. Shortly before midnight Friday, emergency crews were called to the plant after Avalos-Chanon was found entangled in a mechanical blender that regulates the fat content of ground meat.
Another worker hit the emergency stop button, but it was way too late for Avalos Chanon. The poor guy was pronounced dead at the scene, but his body could not be removed from the machine until it was dismantled the following day.
Dr. Cliff Young, a deputy state medical examiner, said Avalos-Chanon died from “blunt-force injuries and chopping wounds.”
Interstate Meat was cited in October after inspectors found machinery in the meat-grounding room were not properly locked down during cleaning, and could result in “unexpected start-up of the machine.” But OSHA says it’s too early to tell if that’s connected to Avalos-Chanon’s death.
“It’s way too early to say,” said Oregon OSHA spokeswoman, Melanie Mesaros.…Continue Reading
OREGON CITY, OR – Shayla Shonneker died after her mother’s live-in boyfriend, 32-year-old Joseph Wolters, accidentally shot her has he practiced holstering his loaded gun.
Oregon City police say 9-year-old Shayla Shonneker was playing in her backyard while Wolters was inside the home practicing with his firearm, having recently been hired as an armed security guard with an armored transport company.
As Wolters was holstering and un-holstering his loaded gun, it went off. Out of all the paths this bullet could have traversed, this one traveled through a wall of the home, and into Shonneker’s face 50 yards away.
A LifeFlight helicopter rushed Shonneker to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, where she died. Wolters, a decorated Iraq War veteran, cooperated with police during an interview with detectives. No word on if he will be facing criminal charges.
Gladstone School District Superintendent Bob Stewart said the district has activated its crisis-response team and has established a safe room for both adults and students at John Wetten Elementary School, where Shayla had been a student since kindergarten.…Continue Reading
Gerardo Chavarria Sentenced For Killing Toddler By Pounding Boy’s Head Into Floor After Spilling His BeerMarch 21, 2013 at 9:53 am by Morbid
Keizer, OR - Gerardo Chavarria, 24, was sentenced to 25 years in prison after admitting he got angry with his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son for spilling his beer, and killed the boy by pounded his head into the floor.
In 2011, Chavarria took his girlfriend’s son, Sebastian Iturbetook, to the hospital claiming that he was watching the boy when Sebastian fell down the stairs leading to the basement. Sebastion was transferred to Oregon Health and Science University where he died of blunt force trauma to the head on Nov. 6, 2011.
A medical examination would later show that the boy’s injuries did not coincide with Chavarria’s explanation of events. Chavarria would change his story, saying he’d accidentally pushed the child with a child carrier, causing Sebastion to fall down the flight of stairs. This explanation still did not explain the boy’s injuries, and Chavarria was charged with murder.
Chavarria continued to proclaim his innocence, never admitting to willfully abusing the boy, or intentionally causing his death. But that changed on Tuesday, two weeks before he was to go to trial, when Chavarria waived his right to a trial and told the court what actually happened on the morning of Sebastion’s death.…Continue Reading
Corvallis, Oregon – The wide eyed beauty you see here is Miss Jelena Monique Taylor, 44. She likes to party Carrie style. She also apparently enjoys the recreational use of meth and getting her hair and nails did. Oh, and she enjoys getting naked.
Sadly, meth and time do not combine very well. You see, Jelena reportedl went to the salon “The Rage” extra early to make sure she got in. So early, in fact, she literally had to break in. As in the door. With a body part of hers, which made her bleed. But it seems that since meth gives those on it superpowers, Miss Jelena went all Hulk on equipment at the salon and smashed it while bleeding all over everything.
“There were broken vases, and a broken dryer. … The toilet, the shower, everything was covered in blood. It looked like a murder scene,” said salon owner Kayley Kampfer.
Oh, and she did all of this bare assed. I agree with the part where she thought: “fuck my pants” and dropped them.…Continue Reading
The call came in just after 3:00 Tuesday morning, police say.
When officers arrived at the store located in the Pony Village Mall, they say they found Darlene Huntley, yes… 45, locked inside.
No word on how she entered the store or why she didn’t just break a damn window to get out.
After a thorough investigation, Huntley was arrested and charged with second degree burglary and second degree criminal trespass, among other charges.
Huntley was transported to the Coos County Jail. No information on the bond/bail amount.
Even worse, they brought the ban hammer down. Hard. Huntley has been banned from the Pony Village Mall for LIFE! *insert echo here*
This, of course, brings to mind another Dollar Tree story we covered.
Back in 2011, we featured Shane Chavis – a man accused of holing up in the bathroom of an Arizona Dollar Tree.…Continue Reading
Portland, OR – A 15-year-old boy is still clinging to life after hanging himself from some playground equipment at Central Elementary School.
Last Saturday, Jadin Bell was found by a passerby after the teen had climbed on top of a play structure and hanged himself. The person who found Bell tried rescuing the teen who was taken to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital where he remains on life support.
Reports are that Bell is an openly gay student at LHS where he is also a cheerleader. Even though he has a supportive family and large network of friends, Bell has been the target of bullying, reportedly in person and online.
School administrators confirmed that Bell had recently spoken with a school counselor and that they were investigating “a name calling incident.” In light of Bell’s attempted suicide, they’e also concerned about the other teen who was involved. Friends say that Bell had complained about bullying before, but that they have a hard time believing that this is what lead to Bell trying to take his own life.…Continue Reading
Police in Lyons arrested 20-year-old Kevin Parrish earlier this week after doing just that.
Parrish was watching the 9-pound Chihuahua-Pinscher mix for his grandmother, who was out of state.
Parrish told police he had just heated up the oven to 350 and was preparing to make enchiladas, when the dog, Kudo, nipped at him.
Enraged, Parrish started punching the pint-sized pooch in the head and may even have strangled him a little.
Parrish then tossed the dog in the heated oven, police say, and was prepared to roast the little beast when he heard his brother enter the home.
Parrish’s brother and father rescued Kudo and rushed him to the vet, where was treated for cuts and bruises. He also had some singed fur, but is expected to fully recover.
Parrish’s father was the one to phone police, and is now caring for Kudo.…Continue Reading
Portland, OR — There is certainly no shortage of domestic assault stories here at the Dreamin’ Demon, and while domestic violence is no laughing matter, the “weapons” some of the alleged abusers use make me giggle. A little.
Caleb “Damn, he’d be really fucking hot if he lost some of that excess hair” Grotberg, 32, was recently booked on a laundry list of charges after allegedly strangling his girlfriend with his dreadlocks.
Police were called to the couple’s home early Monday morning, where they learned from the girlfriend that Grotberg had assaulted her and attempted to strangle her with his hair after the two argued.
Grotberg was not at the scene when officers arrived, but was quickly picked up after the victim described his ‘do.
He’s now behind bars, facing domestic violence-related charges that include kidnapping, attempted assault, assault, menacing and strangulation.
The woman was taken to a Portland hospital for treatment to numerous injuries, none of which were considered life-threatening.Continue Reading
Salem, OR – A 47-year-old woman in Oregon has been charged with attempted murder after she used her Ford F-150 to run down her husband.
Shirley Nunez suspected that her husband, Kenneth, was having an affair with a woman who lived nearby. So on Monday night, Shirley broke into the home of her husband’s alleged mistress and confronted the woman, pointing a gun at her in the process.
No details on what was discussed, but Shirley did not physically injure the woman and left the residence in her 2003 Ford F-150. Kenneth was not nearly as lucky. When Shirley got back home, she saw her husband walking to his motorcycle parked in front of their house and decided to give him a kiss with her truck’s grill.
Bill Deconcini said he and his wife woke up after hearing screaming and the two came outside to find Kenneth unconscious in the grass after Shirley had ran him down with her truck. He was transported to Salem Hospital in critical condition while Shirley was taken to the hospital for a medical evaluation before being booked into the Marion County Jail.…Continue Reading
Portland, OR – An 11-year-old boy has been accused of trying to carjack and rob a woman at gunpoint, and even returned to the scene of the crime as a news reporter was interviewing the victim.
On Saturday, 22-year-old Amy Garrett was sitting inside her truck in the parking lot of Freedom Foursquare Church waiting for her parents. That’s when she was approached by two boys, ages 11 and 7. The older boy told Garret that he had a gun and would shoot her if she did not give him her truck.
Garrett didn’t believe the boys at first, and refused to let them have her vehicle. That’s when the 7-year-old instructed the older boy to show her the gun. The 11-year-old then lifted his shirt and showed Garrett a handgun. Thinking it was fake, she asked the boy if it was real.
“He said ‘you don’t ever ask somebody if it’s real. That’s how you get yourself shot.’” He also told her he was prepared to blow her brains out if she didn’t give him the truck, her wallet, and her phone.…Continue Reading
SALEM, Ore. – Last month we helped save two children, and helped create nightmares, when we posted pictures of an unidentified woman suspected of manufacturing child porn that featured herself engaged in sexual acts with another man and two young girls. That woman has now been identified as 40-year-old Michelle Freeman and she is now behind bars, along with her husband.
Michelle and her 39-year-old husband, Michael Freeman, surrendered to police after one of their acquaintances recognized photos of Michelle that ICE agents distributed to the media last month, and told them if the couple didn’t turn themselves in, they were going to do it for them.
Last month, while investigating material in an unrelated child pornography case, some poor soul on a computer forensics team found videos of a snaggle-toothed swamp monster (click at the risk of damaging your soul), along with an adult male, sexually abusing two young girls between the ages of 3 to 7-years-old. ICE agents obtained a “Jane Doe” arrest warrant for the unidentified woman and then asked the public’s help in identifying her.…Continue Reading
Portland OR – Here’s a great story out of Portland where a mother stopped a teenager from abducting her 6-year-old daughter, then used a 2×4 to deliver a bit of street justice in the process.
Antoinette Robinson’s daughter, Xavier, had been outside playing when a 17-year-old male grabbed her and tried to pull her into some bushes. That’s when Robinson sprang into action and the teen realized he had just messed with the wrong Mama Bear.
“I thought I heard something and then I looked and the man had my daughter in a bush with his hand over her mouth & around her waist,” said Antoinette Robinson. “I jumped up and ran out of the house and I just socked him in his face. Then I went to go hit him again and he let her go and we both rolled down the hill.”
The teen let go of her daughter and took off, but Robinson got into a car with neighbors and chased him down. When they found him, Robinson jumped out of the vehicle armed with a 2×4…and she wasn’t planning on building a house.…Continue Reading
WOODBURN, Ore. – A Catholic priest in Oregon got himself into some trouble after he allegedly fondled a 12-year-old boy during a sleepover.
Just before midnight Sunday, James Curths was hosting a barbecue when a 12-year-old boy ran up to them begging for help, saying that a man was chasing him. At about that time, Curths says he saw a man come around the corner wearing only a Speedo. That man was Rev. Angel Armando Perez, pastor of St. Luke Catholic Church, and the 46-year-old was trying to wave the boy over to him. Curths said the boy was scared to death and hid behind him, telling him the man in the speedo had touched his privates.
“He was staring at us,” said 28-year-old Heather Rodriguez, Curths’ sister-in-law. “Then he stood there with his hands on his hips like, ‘You’re really not going to give him to me?’”
Perez didn’t run away until after Curths told him they were calling police. They took the boy to his sister’s house where the boy repeated what he told Curths; that Perez had touched his privates.…Continue Reading
EDINBURG, Texas – A character from the movie Wrong Turn called police the other day and admitted that he was the man responsible for two separate murders committed in the ’70s.
Jeffrey Cutlip is a 63-year-old sex offender with a long history of arrests and stints in prison, including an 11 year prison sentence for a 1982 first-degree sodomy and first-degree burglary conviction.
But it seems Cutlip has either grown a conscience or now needs a place to live, because he called a Texas police department on Saturday and wanted to talk to detectives “about some bad things he had done in the past.” Then, according to a police spokesman, Cutlip confessed to three to four homicides in Portland.
One of his alleged victims was 15-year-old Julie Marie Bennett. She was last seen on April 4, 1977 walking with Cutlip, then 27, after stopping in a convenience store to buy beer and cigarettes. Her body was found two days later face-down in a creek. An autopsy showed Bennett had died from drowning.
Cutlip also admitted to the strangulation death of 44-year-old Marlene Clair Carlson.…Continue Reading
Portland, Ore. – A registered sex offender was arrested the other day after he tried to sexually assault a 10-year-old boy in a Wendy’s bathroom and stabbed the child several times when he fought back.
Police say on Sunday, 49-year-old Adam Lee Brown stood outside a Wendy’s bathroom door and forced a 10-year-old boy inside. After locking the door behind him, Brown allegedly attempted to sexually assault the boy. When the boy fought back, Brown stabbed him several times with a knife.
Before I go on, here’s a little background on Brown.
He’s a registered sex offender who served 11 years in prison for molesting at least nine children in 1992. The HIV-positive preacher’s son would force his victims into silence by threatening them with knives, scissors and matches. In some cases he would rely on the oldest trick in the book by warning them that Satan would come if they didn’t do what he wanted.
In 1993, Brown was convicted of three counts of first-degree sodomy after pleading no contest to lesser charges–prosecutors tried to charge him with murder because he knew he was possibly infecting children with HIV. A real piece of shit, right?…Continue Reading
Portland, OR – Early last year, Shiloh Hampton, 14, was tragically struck down by gunfire outside a northeast Portland mall. …and of course, we reported it to you. Well… not exactly…
What we reported to you was that – while authorities were cataloging evidence at the secured crime scene – Kevin Signalness, 41, ‘plowed’ into the area they had cordoned off while ‘intoxicated, masturbating to pornography, and driving a stolen car.’ Go Kevin!
Little beyond that was known at the time of our first report. Police reports and court records regarding the incident can now provide us with a more complete picture. For instance, when officers confronted Signalness about his driving while masturbating to pornography, Signalness reportedly replied “You caught me red-handed.”
It’s a good thing that cops love that type of humor! Also, while toxicology tests after the incident established that Signalness had only a blood alcohol level of .02 percent, he was also using methamphetamine and marijuana prior to his fapapalooza.
In September, Signalness was convicted of driving under the influence of intoxicants and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.…Continue Reading
Salem, OR - An Oregon woman was charged after allegedly using a Visa debit card with a $2.1 million balance issued to her after her fraudulent electronic 2011 tax return was approved by the Oregon Department of Revenue. The ruse came to an end only after the woman reportedly lost the card and applied for a replacement.
Authorities allege Krystle Marie Reyes, 25, used the tax preparation software Turbo Tax to file a faked 2011 income tax return with the state in which she reported earnings of $3 million and claimed a refund of $2.1 million. Due to the high dollar amount, the return had to go through a manual review process at the Oregon Department of Revenue in which ‘multiple reviewers’ would need to approve the refund. Oddly, they all did. Once the refund was approved, Turbo Tax issued Reyes a Visa debit card with a $2.1M balance.
“We do not have that many $2.1 million refund claims,” Derrick Gasperini, a Revenue Department spokesman, said. “It absolutely should have been caught and was not.”
What transpired immediately after is what you would likely expect from a person holding a Visa debit card with a $2.1 million balance.…Continue Reading
Portland, OR – A school bus driver suffered bites, scratches and bruises after she was viciously attacked by a 10 to 12-year-old autistic boy riding on the bus.
According to reports, 68-year-old Alice Scoggin was transporting two special needs students to Rock Creek Middle School when a a student with autism began biting her repeatedly, continuing his assault even after she had pulled over.
A passing motorist stopped to assist after seeing the bus with its emergency lights on and Scoggins waving her bloody arms outside the window. The man, a volunteer firefighter, said he witnessed the student biting Scoggin, and that the boy also tried to bite him when he got on the bus. When police arrived to take the boy into custody, he even tried to bite the arresting officer.
Scoggin was transported by ambulance to Kaiser Sunnyside Medical Center, suffering from bites on her hands, her arms and possibly her face. Her injuries were not life-threatening. The boy was taken into protective custody at a secure facility, where he’ll undergo a psych exam.…Continue Reading
HILLSBORO, Oreg. — A toddler in Oregon drowned after he fell into the family’s running washing machine.
According to the reports, the 21-month-old Oliver Hebb fell into the machine after he climbed on top of it while his mother, Tiffany Hebb, was in another room reading a magazine. Sadly, the machine was in a wash cycle.
Oliver’s mother found him partially submerged in the machine within minutes and pulled him out, but he wasn’t breathing. Her screams alerted neighbors who performed CPR on the boy. They were able to get Oliver breathing again but he never regained consciousness.
The family removed Oliver from life support on Sunday after it was determined that he was brain-dead. An autopsy report would reveal Oliver Hebb died of oxygen deprivation to his brain as a result of drowning and suffered physical trauma from the washer’s agitator.
Most washer’s are equipped with a safety mechanism that stops all mechanical functions if the lid is opened. That doesn’t always keep the machine from filling with water, or in this case, the agitator from working.…Continue Reading
