SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Ramineh Behbehanian is facing attempted murder charges after the 50-year-old got caught sneaking bottles of orange juice mixed with lethal amounts rubbing alcohol into a Starbucks refrigerator.
A customer inside the coffee shop watched as Behbehanian removed two bottles of orange juice from her bag and place them inside a refrigerator inside the coffee shop. When the customer alerted staff what they had seen, Behbehanian fled the scene, but not before an employee snagged her license plate number as she drove away.
After checking the bottles of orange juice she had left in the refrigerator, and noticing they had a toxic smell, employees called 911. Firefighters tested the bottles of orange juice and found the bottles contained a lethal quantity of isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
Ramineh Behbehanian was arrested at her home on suspicion of attempted murder and felony poisoning. Investigators do not have a motive, but say the believe this was an isolated incident.
“We don’t know if she has done this before or if she had plans to do this again,” Sgt.…Continue Reading
OCALA, FL - Carron Washington is facing child abuse charges after feeding his 2-month-old baby bleach because he heard would cure the baby’s congestion.
According to police, the child was rushed to the hospital after her mother called 911 to report her baby had spit up a clear liquid that smelled like bleach.
Police were called by medical staff after they also noticed the baby’s vomit smelled like bleach, along with the baby’s formula.
“You smell the baby bottle and it smells like complete bleach.” the hospital employee tells the 911 dispatcher. “And the parents aren’t giving us a good story about how it got in there.”
When police questioned the child’s father, 20-year-old Carron Washington, they say he broke down crying and admitted he’d mixed less than a cap-full of bleach with less than two ounces of the baby’s formula.
He said that on Saturday night and Sunday morning, the baby was fussy, so at 1 a.m. Sunday, Washington put less than a cap-full of bleach with less than two ounces of the baby’s formula and then fed the child some of the formula.…Continue Reading
NEWBURYPORT, MA - Police have arrested a teen mother after they say she poisoned another teen mother’s infant while they both stayed at a home for teenage mothers.
The teens, both under the age of 17, had been staying at the home for little over a year when one of their infants became ill. The baby, less than a year old, was rushed to the hospital where it was learned that he had ingested a poisonous substance.
The boy was treated and released, but an investigation would later reveal that the infant had ingested baby formula tainted with a household cleaning product, and that another teen mother staying at the home had placed the substance in the formula earlier in the week.
Before it was learned how the boy was poisoned, and who was responsible, the accused teen had run away from the home. She was later found and arrested on a warrant issued for her running away, then charged with attempted poisoning the next day.
She is currently in jail without bond and will appear in juvenile court next week.…Continue Reading
ARMSTRONG, Iowa – A man with a 40-lb jar of mercury walks into a bar. Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, right? Well it actually happened the other day in Iowa and ended with more than a dozen people, , including four children, being monitored for mercury poisoning
It all started when a construction worker remodeling a home found a plastic bottle in the basement that contained 40 pounds of liquid mercury. The man decided to take the mercury to a bar so he could show it off to his friends.
While there, someone knocked over the container, spilling half of the mercury on the floor. The bar owner attempted to clean the spill with a shop-vac and a broom. Wanna guess the worst way to clean up a mercury spill aside from lapping it up with your tongue? Not only are the broom and vacuum now contaminated, the heat from the vacuum cleaner’s motor creates even more mercury vapor in the air.
Now that around a dozen bar patrons have been exposed to the mercury, the man decided he’d had his fun and took the remaining 25 pounds of mercury back to the house–and hid it in a sandbox.…Continue Reading
Prosecutors say that 84-year-old Frank Shull let his son, 56-year-old Byron Shull, and his son’s girlfriend, move into his home because Byron was a jobless, recovering alcoholic with nowhere to live.
But instead of being thankful for the help he was receiving from his father, Byron got upset that he had to abide by the rules his father instated while living under his roof. Completely asinine rules like no drinking or smoking the house. So Byron decided to get a little revenge.
“Traditionally the father drinks milk with each meal. When he got his glass of milk that morning, Byron had put at least one bottle of Visine into the milk,” said Cuyahoga County Assistant Prosecutor Andy Nichol.
Byron claims it was meant as a harmless prank, because poisoning your elderly father is hilarious. But after consuming the almost two bottles of Visine his son had put in his milk, the elderly man almost died.…Continue Reading
Lawrence, NY - A man has been charged with attempted murder after he and his 2 year-old daughter were found in his car, sick from being poisoned by chemicals.
Ammonium chloride, as it turns out, isn’t actually all that poisonous. Despite this, police believe 45-year-old Khemchan Sulaiman mixed the chemical with baby formula and gave his daughter the concoction in a bottle. The chemical was also found on the girl, along with a powder believed to be a household pesticide. Allegedly both Sulaiman and his daughter ingested the chemical.
The pair were found semi-conscious in Sulaiman’s car Monday morning, parked behind a block of stores, after someone heard the man honking the car’s horn and yelling for help. Police believe this to be an attempted murder-suicide and that it may have stemmed from some bad blood between Sulaiman and his ex-wife, who is also the girl’s mother. Both were taken to the hospital in critical condition, but as of Tuesday the girl is listed as stable and Sulaiman is expected to make it to court, where he could get up to 25 years.…Continue Reading
PUTNAM LAKE, N.Y. — We have a lot of suicide stories on D’D, but none that I recall were a suicide by snake. But some unanswered questions surrounding the death of a woman found dead in her home after succumbing to the poison from one of the most deadliest snakes in the world, has some close to the victim feeling she may have allowed herself to be bitten.
Aleta Stacey, 56, was a snake lover who kept 75 snakes in the home she shared with her boyfriend. One of these snakes was the extremely deadly Black Mamba, reportedly the fastest venomous snakes in the world that also delivers a bite with a mortality rate of 100% if not treated immediately with antivenom. Typically, a bite from one of these bastards means you have about 20 agonizing minutes to make sure your corpse is found wearing clean underwear.
On Tuesday, Stacey’s boyfriend found her dead in their bedroom. She had snake bites on her arm and the Black Mamba was loose from its enclosure that was usually secured with a padlock.…Continue Reading
LASALLE, Colo. — I’m quickly coming to the conclusion that the majority of students in Colorado are psychotic and want to kill their classmates. A North Valley Middle School student has been arrested on suspicion of menacing and assault after he allegedly handed out gum to fellow students. Gum that police say he had intentionally poisoned.
The eighth-grader was reportedly angry at some classmates and decided to get back at them by soaking gum in household cleaners. After drying out and re-wrapping the gum, he handed it out to other students at the school.
He ended up getting suspended Monday after making comments about “sending some people to the hospital,” but no one realized he had given out the tainted gum. That is until Tuesday, when a male student chewed a stick of gum and became ill. The student was checked out at a local hospital and released.
LaSalle Police Chief Carl Harvey stressed that at this time there is no proof the boy actually poisoned the gum and that “these are accusations only and he’s presumed innocent until proven guilty.” Even so, the boy isn’t at home.…Continue Reading
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – I’ve been holding of on this one because the details keep changing and it is just full of strange information. In a nutshell, Laura Johnson has been charged with second-degree murder, an alternative count of manslaughter and unauthorized practice of medicine in the death of her husband, attorney LLoyd Johnson, 47. He was brought to the hospital for what was reported as a heart attack, but two days later he was dead. What makes this story so odd is that aside from revealing he had high levels of opiates in his system, his cause of death is being reported as a stabbing, a poisoning, or both. But the “practice of medicine” charge is an interesting addition to the oddball list of shit found in the family’s home. Things like a dead dog, correspondence between Laura and Lloyd Johnson, bloodstained bedding, prescription medication, needles, a photo album with “injuries photo” as an entry, assorted medical and surgical supplies in the master bedroom, and frozen human tissue in the refrigerator.…Continue Reading
NEW BEDFORD, Mass. - Chad Wunschel, 27, is a JV softball coach who was substituting a welding class on Wednesday. At some point he drank some of his iced coffee and began experiencing severe stomach pains. He figured some jackass had put something in his drink – especially after his coffee melted a Styrofoam cup it was poured into. It was at this point that the Greater New Bedford Regional Technical High School teacher was rushed to the hospital. He is expected to recover, but detectives would really like to talk to the person who put the poison in the coffee. They think it was probably acetone – a chemical used to clean metal before it is welded. They have interviewed every student that was in the class so I figure it is only a matter of time before they catch who did it. In my experience, kids have big mouths and a large portion of them are very easy to crack. I particularly liked this blurb from the article from a girl whose friend was detained: “She was very mad because she had nothing to do with it and she had to sit in a room for a very long time.…Continue Reading
WALTHAM, Massachusetts – A police investigation concluded that on the morning of November 12th three McDevitt Middle School students, two 13-year olds and a 12-year old, put some sort of cleaning solution in their teacher’s water bottle. Luckily, the teacher could smell the solution in the water before drinking it and reported that her water bottle had been tampered with. Police were called and eventually, all three students were charged with attempted poisoning and were suspended indefinitely. Superintendent Peter Azar feels the term “poison” was an exaggeration, that the drink had only been “tampered with.” He doesn’t feel the kids tried to do malicious damage to the teacher. You know, by putting cleaning fluid in her water. Obviously they had hoped that by her drinking ammonia, it would make her happy.…Continue Reading
