At one point during his tirade, Benoit also grabbed a pen and threatened to kill his old man with it while he mimicked stabbing him.

JEANNETTE, PA – Maxwell Morton has been charged with murder after police say the 16-year-old shot a classmate in the face before taking a selfie with the victim’s body and posting it to Snapchat.
Police were contacted Wednesday evening after the mother of 16-year-old Ryan Mangan found her son dead in his room. The following day, a woman called police to report a disturbing image her son had received via Snapchat.
The image was a selfie taken by Morton with a very dead Mangan sitting in a chair behind him with a gunshot wound to the face. The woman also said her son received messages from Maxwell, stating, “Told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one.”
A search warrant was served at Morton’s home and a 9 mm handgun was found in the basement under the steps that matched a shell casing found in Mangan’s room. After being advised of his rights, Morton confessed to shooting Mangan. At this time, no motive has been revealed.…
UPPER DARBY, PA – A teen who tried to rob an old man with a toy gun has died after the intended victim used his real gun to shoot the teenager in the head.
The shooting happened Wednesday afternoon when a 67-year-old man walking in Cobbs Creek park was confronted by 18-year-old Tyler Williams.
“As he turns around, he sees a masked man with a gun pointed at him saying, ‘Give it up, give me all you got,” said Supt. Michael Chitwood, Upper Darby Township Police.
The old man didn’t comply with the teen’s demands, but rather grabbed the teen’s gun. The two got into a struggle that ended when the victim pulled out his very real, .38 caliber handgun, and used it to shoot the teen in the head.
The man then walked out of the park and called 911 and Williams would die at the scene.
Chitwood said the teen was found with half a dozen cell phones and that the toy gun he was using looked so real that police at the scene didn’t know it was a fake until they got a closer look at it.…
DARBY BOROUGH, PA - A one month-old-baby is missing a good portion of her face after having it chewed off by the family’s pet ferrets.
Skyy Isabelle Fraime was sitting in a car seat on the floor of the dining room when she was mauled by three ferrets that had gotten out of their cloth cage. Her father was upstairs sleeping during the attack, while her mother, Jessica Benales, was in an upstairs bathroom.
When Benales heard the baby screaming and went to check on her, she found her child in the car seat with the ferrets on top of her. It was immediately apparent the ferrets had mangled 25% of her face.
“I’ll be 45 years in June in Darby (with the police department), and this is the worst I’ve ever seen,” borough Police Chief Robert Smythe said. “The baby’s nose was gone, and a lot of the flesh from under the nose was gone and the cheek. It had little holes all over the head from where the ferrets were on her.”
There isn’t a clear indication of how long the baby was left alone, but it was undoubtedly enough time for several ferrets to eat her fucking face.…
HANOVER, PA – An 11-year-old has been accused of stabbing her 2-year-old cousin because she was having “the worst day ever.”
According to police, 31-year-old Anna Kristen Marye went to sleep and left her 11-year-old her niece unsupervised with her 2-year-old daughter last November, despite knowing her niece has mental health and anger issues and had acted aggressive toward her child in the past.
Marye woke up to her niece screaming that something was wrong with Marye’s daughter. When she went to check, she found her daughter in her crib with her intestines protruding through a one-inch laceration to her abdomen. She was transported to the hospital for emergency surgery.
When police interviewed the older girl she first told them she found the child injured and had no idea how she was injured. She would later admit she used a steak knife to stab the girl as she slept. She said she did it because she was “so mad and had the worst day ever.”
According to family members, the girl once said that she wished her cousin was dead, and once approached the younger child with a knife and asked, “Are you ready to die?” The girl was charged as a juvenile with two counts of aggravated assault, while Marye was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.…

Easton, PA — Authorities have reason to believe this freak, 53-year-old Gregory Graf, shot and killed his stepdaughter just so he could have sex with her corpse. What? Like you’ve never wanted anyone that bad….
Jessica Padgett, 33, was last seen alive on November 21, leaving her job as a child care provider at a Northampton day care center. Five days and several inconsistent stories later, Graf was charged with her murder.
Graf was taken into custody on November 26, after Padgett’s body was found buried behind a shed on his property. Authorities have stated she was shot in the back of the head.
Police found video footage of Graf violating the woman’s corpse on two separate cameras that had been seized. An additional recording was found on Graf’s computer.

Jacklyn Blake was apparently sleeping off a few drinks when the boyfriend took it upon himself to dish up. When Blake came to, police say, she went all kinds of batshit crazy — because that’s what holidays and cooking and breathing does to women.
Blake apparently chased the man around the living room with a knife, then stabbed him once in the chest. She then threw the knife at the guy, hitting him just below the eye.
The boyfriend was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. We can only hope he learned a lesson from all this… just sit in your chair, watch your game, shut the fuck up, and don’t. touch. anything.
Blake was carted off to the pokey, and has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, simple assault, reckless endangerment and making terroristic threats.
Some people live for Black Friday sales the day after Thanksgiving, I live for the stabs.…

CONWAY, PA – Brittany Ruck, 25, is facing some serious charges after she allegedly pulled her 6-year-old daughter’s hair so hard that she separated the girl’s scalp from her skull.
Police were first alerted to the incident back in August after hospital officials contacted them to report they were treating a young girl for a head injury consistent with violent hair pulling.
“The head injury was described in medical terms as traction,” said Michael Priolo, of the Conway Police Department. “It is a separation between the scalp and skull which creates a void that fills with blood. The blood ended up pulling around the eyes, giving her raccoon eyes.”
When interviewed, the girl said that when she had difficulty counting to 12, her mother “pulled her out of a chair by her hair.” She said that the next day her mother pulled her into a corner by her hair.
Ruck admitted to police that she’d pulled her daughter’s hair on multiple occasions because that’s what her mother used to do to her when she was a young girl.…

Kurilla was visiting his grandfather on Saturday when he walked into the room of 90-year-old Helen Novak, whom his grandfather was caring for, and asked her a question. Novak got angry at the boy and told him to leave her room.
In response, Kurilla admitted to using a cane to hook around Novak’s neck and used the shaft to pull her back on to a bed. He then pressed the cane against Novak’s neck and punched her repeatedly in the head and stomach.

Newman arrived at Francis Scott Key School yesterday morning, where she has worked for twenty years, but stormed out after a heated telephone conversation.
She then drove to a Holiday Inn a mile away, left her purse in her car and entered a first-floor restroom just feet away from a packed conference room. Minutes later someone attending the conference entered the bathroom and noticed blood pooling from underneath one of the stalls
Hotel staff were notified and would find Newman in the locked stall suffering from multiple stab wounds; a steak knife and a pair of scissors at her feet.

EVERETT, PA – A 14-year-old boy is facing two years in jail after he simulated oral sex from a Jesus statue that, honestly, looked like it was made for something exactly like this.
The teen got himself in trouble after simulating the sex act with a statue that belongs to the Christian organization, Love in the Name of Christ. A friend of his snapped the photo in late July and then posted it on Facebook where it quickly went viral.
On Tuesday, police arrested the kid and charged him with, get this, desecrating a venerated object — a rarely used 1972 law. If he’s convicted, he could be looking at two years in juvenile jail. In case you are wondering, like I was, Pennsylvania law defines “desecration” as:
“Defacing, damaging, polluting or otherwise, physically mistreating in a way that the actor knows will outrage the sensibilities of persons likely to observe or discover the action.”
In other words, the teen hasn’t been been charged with damaging anything, he’s been charged for possibly offending a religious person by putting his crotch in the face of a Jesus statue.…
CENTER TOWNSHIP, PA – Stacey Golden is facing assault charges after she reportedly gave her boyfriend’s 9-year-old grandson a bloody nose at the boy’s bus stop.
According to the criminal complaint, the fifth-grader was crying when he got on the bus with a bloody nose and a black eye. Authorities were called after the boy told the bus driver and school officials that “Golden punched him in the face because she was mad at her boyfriend.”
His statement was corroborated by the driver who reported seeing Golden “outside flailing her arms in an aggressive manner” while she was talking to the boy.
“She struck the boy at least once, if not more, and he sustained some minor injuries,” Chief Barry Kramer said. “Someone lost their temper.”
Police arrested Golden and charged her with simple assault, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment. According to reports, the boy lives with his grandfather and Golden, which means things are probably pretty awkward in that house right now.
It’s been a few years since we’ve had an adult beat a kid’s ass at a bus stop.…
LITITZ, PA – Police have arrested 46-year-old Donald Hackman Jr. after they say he assaulted his girlfriend over several days, including lighting her vagina on fire.
Investigators were alerted to Hackman after his girlfriend admitted herself to the hospital seeking treatment for her injuries that included second and third degree burns to her lower stomach, genitals and inner thighs.
According to the woman, her injuries were caused by Hackman over the course of days. Aside from punching her repeatedly in the face and stomach and beating her several times with a belt, she says Hackman set her vagina on fire.
I, too, have been accused of setting vaginas on fire, but through pure animal sexuality — Hackman took a shortcut. The woman said that Hackman poured lighter fuel on her crotch and then lit her up. She said Hackman helped extinguish the resulting fire, but yelled at her for screaming and crying in pain.
The woman also said that during one assault, her 7-year-old tried to intervene and Hackman ended up locking the boy in a closet.…
INDIANA, PA – Meri Woods, 43, is looking at a possible nine years in prison after she was found guilty of downloading child porn in an attempt to frame her ex-husband.
About a year ago, Woods told investigators that she’d discovered her husband, Matthew Woods, had downloaded child porn on the family computer.
Police computer experts were able to immediately rule out Matthew as the person who downloaded the images by finding they were date-stamped during a time Matthew had already been forced from the home by a protection-from-abuse order.
Based on the findings, Woods was arrested and charged with a felony count of sexual abuse of children/possession of child pornography and a misdemeanor count of unsworn falsification to law enforcement. She pleaded not guilty and opted for a jury to decide her fate.
Turns out that was a bad move.
“She download in excess of 40 images of different acts of child pornography to the family computer, took it to the state police and said, ‘My husband downloaded all this porn,’” District Attorney Patrick Dougherty told the jury.…
