Madison, WI – Wisconsin authorities are working to unravel the case of an unidentified 15-year-old girl who was seen ‘stumbling down the street’ barefoot and wearing only thin pajamas in the winter cold. She was also scraped and bleeding. A passerby, Mike Vega, noticing her purple feet in his rear view mirror, stopped to help.
“The girl started talking about how her stepmother had just thrown her down the stairs, she had escaped out a window and was looking for help,” said Vega. “You could see fear in her eyes. It was very disturbing.” Vega added.
Vega said that the 15-year old girl – who weighed just 70 pounds – was scared at first to be inside Vega’s car, but that she became more comfortable after he showed her photos of his three young sons and a Mary Poppins video on his cellphone.
“It was the most shocking thing I have ever seen,” Vega said, recalling the sight of her when he found her. “A little girl looking like that.…Continue Reading
Erik Cain, 30, apparently got all kinds of slashy with his brother Wednesday evening after learning said brownie had been cut in half. Angered at the sight of the mutilated confection, Cain reportedly armed himself with three steak knives and went to work on his sibling, slashing the man on his forearm, wrist and shoulder.
The slashee, Gene Cain, told police he feared his brother was going to kill him, so he threw a television set at him in retaliation.
Cain was later arrested on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct. Interestingly enough, police say Cain was out on bail on charges he had slashed his girlfriend last month.
Since I can’t seem to find any information on the victim’s condition, I have to assume the wounds were somewhat superficial. If anything, the man learned a very important lesson – never lay a finger on an unstable slasher’s chocolate.…Continue Reading

Yeadon, PA — Police say four men who orchestrated an armed heist of a 13-year old’s meatball sandwich are now in custody. As a result, meatball sandwich brokers worldwide – who are often the target of organized meatball sandwich theft rings – are breathing a collective sigh of relief.
According to court documents, on Saturday night, the young man had just bought a meatball sandwich at a nearby deli. While on his way home, two men – possibly aware that the teen would be transporting a meatball sandwich – exited a black Ford Expedition and approached him.
One of the men, later identified as Rashawn Ameer Mallory, 21, (pictured) displayed a black revolver. The probable-cause affidavit quotes Mallory as telling the teen, “Whatever you do, don’t move,” and then adding, “If you do anything, I’ll cap you.” A second assailant, later identified as Ernest Wellington Barnett, 22, went through the teens pockets. Police say that the suspects established that – other than the meatball sandwich – the teen had nothing of value.…Continue Reading
According to the arrest affidavit, the child’s mother noticed the kid was missing at about 4:30 Wednesday evening and immediately called police. Officers arrived at the complex and began a door-to-door search. When they knocked on Vaughn’s door, he claimed he hadn’t seen the child. But just moments later, another officer reported seeing Vaughn holding the child outside his second-story window, then dropping him to the ground.
“And the child came walking through here crying, and they ran up there. And Sean was screaming, ‘I didn’t do nothing,’ but the screen was busted out and you could see everything,” said neighbor Reggie Edwards. “So it’s just a horrible story.”
Fortunately, the child was not seriously injured – he landed on his feet and suffered nothing more than a sprained ankle.
When questioned, Vaughn admitted to luring the boy into his apartment with the promise of toys.…Continue Reading
Fond du Lac, WI – A 9-year-old girl came to the aid of her mother by stabbing Jason Fields, 27, in the back for the second time in two years. The woman and Fields have a child in common.
It all began when police were called to the woman’s home last week after Fields jumped on the woman’s car and broke the windshield. According to the complaint, police left after Fields gave the woman money for the windshield and assured them that he would leave the home for the day. He did not.
The couple started fighting shortly after police left. Fields is accused of strangling the woman and holding a knife to her throat, threatening to kill her. As Fields was threatening her, police say the 9-year-old girl plunged a kitchen knife into Field’s back – he then dropped his knife in response.
According to the complaint, the 9-year-old girl told police she was not upset by the incident as she had stabbed Fields in the leg two years earlier when he also was hurting her mother.…Continue Reading
Staten Island, NY — Rasheen “Illuminati” Harrison is facing numerous charges after police say he covered his ex-girlfriend’s door with his own feces and set fire to the nasty mess. ‘Cause nothing says “fuck you” quite like a little fecal flambé, right?

When the elevator dropped him at the desired floor, police say he grabbed a handful of shit and smeared it all over the woman’s door.

Police say the woman and her two young children were inside the apartment at the time and couldn’t escape because the door and the doorknob were hot to the touch.…Continue Reading
Apparently the ball on this case got rolling many months ago, when the parents of a 9-year-old autistic child called police to report their daughter was coming home after school with bruises on her hands and arms. Eventually arrested was Jennifer Davila, a school bus monitor, who also happens to be the daughter of school bus driver Evelyn Guzman.
Late last summer, Davila was charged with assaulting the 9-year-old (case still pending; next court date April 1), but it’s what was found during that investigation’s review of the school bus company’s video footage that currently has folks in a bit of an uproar.
The video captures the 47-year-old Guzman texting while driving the damned bus. How much texting? Well, let’s start with April 6, 2010, and end with May 15, 2010, and we would have…calculating…calculating…calculating…okay, got it! How about 1,068 text messages sent or received?
Police got an arrest warrant, and Guzman turned herself in Wednesday.…Continue Reading
LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. – James Whalen, 12, is suffering from third-degree burns on his face and neck area with less serious burns on other parts of his body, after a teen doused him with cologne while he was sleeping and set him on fire.
Trudy Smith said her son is autistic and that he’s been bullied in the past, including having a tooth broken and being urinated on. But she allowed him to attend a sleepover thinking that he and the 13-year-old boy who lived there would be the only kids there. Turns out there were 14 children there.
Whalen says that after he went to sleep that night, he woke up in pain.
“I went to sleep. (The) next thing I smelled something good then I felt something burning then I smelled something good again and then I felt fire,” he said.
Turns out someone thought it would be hilarious to douse Whalen with cologne and then light him up.
With his shirt on fire he ran to get help, falling down the stairs and setting the carpet on fire.…Continue Reading
The teen told deputies her mother had been drunk and acting “out of her head” since Friday. She added that her phone rang several times while she was at school, and when she answered, her mother was on the other end “talking out of her head.” She said she told her mother to quit calling, but Stiles continued.
When the girl returned home from school on Tuesday, she said Stiles began yelling at her and four other juveniles in the home for unknown reasons. After being screamed at for several hours, the kid got fed up and called 911.
Deputies say they arrived at the residence to find Stiles belligerent and intoxicated. She allegedly, “could not understand why the Sheriff’s Office was called, could not follow instructions and was talking in circles about unrelated issues.”
Stiles allegedly denied drinking alcohol, stating she was taking several prescription narcotics for various medical issues.
Hillsboro, OR — At about 7:45 Monday evening, Lisa Smalley was driving to Target with her children when she spotted a young boy running around in his underwear – the temperature that night was hovering around 20 degrees. “He said that his dad had gone insane and, you know, ‘help me–help me,’” said Smalley. “He was really, really cold so we threw off all our jackets, and kind of wrapped him as fast we could and blasted the heat in the back of the car.” She called 911. Further investigation revealed the 11-year-old boy and his father, 49-year-old David Andrew Cecil, had argued over his report card that night. Apparently angry over his son’s grades, Cecil reportedly forced the child outside in his underwear and tossed a cup of water on him. It has been reported that the boy had been outside, half nekkid and wet, for at least 15 minutes before being rescued by Smalley. Police say the child also had some bruising to his back, possibly from a prior assault.…Continue Reading
Chester, PA — Jorge Alvarado-Barbosa, an 18-year-old cafeteria worker Chester Community Charter School was arrested on assault charges Wednesday after he allegedly punched an 8-year-old boy in the mouth Monday afternoon. According to police, Alvarado-Barbosa was taking out the trash when he saw the child sitting on a rock wall outside. Alvarado-Barbosa reportedly walked over to the child and said, “I put your brother in the headlock.” Obviously unimpressed, the kid replied, “I don’t care.” At that point, Alvarado-Barbosa started screaming at the child, calling him a bitch.

Now, you would think the principal would have been on the phone with the police and the kids parents, right?…Continue Reading
Stevens Point, WI -- Some of you may remember the write-up I did earlier this year on Paula Wolf…for those who don’t, Wolf was accused of driving down the street blowing darts at people just to hear them say “ouch.” Easily one of my favorite stories here at the Dreamin’ Demon. Anyway, initially charged with six counts of recklessly endangering safety, Wolf pleaded not guilty by reason of mental defect or disease in May. That plea was rejected by the jury after testimony from a psychologist who said Wolf, though clearly mentally ill at the time of the crime, knew what she was doing was wrong. She was found guilty on all counts. After hearing about Wolf’s criminal history at her sentencing hearing earlier this month, a history that includes a stint in prison and a conviction for possession of a Molotov cocktail, and charges for absconding because she moved to Alaska while still on probation, the jury handed down a 2 year sentence. Entering prison with six months credited, Wolf must also write a letter of apology to all victims of her hilarious crime spree and shell out about $500 for fines and restitution.…Continue Reading
Pittsburgh, PA — According to police, 42-year-old Karen Remsing decided to help herself to a dose of her terminally ill son’s pain medications this past Sunday. Remsing, a registered nurse, reportedly disconnected a computerized intravenous injection tube supplying Midazolam to her 15-year-old son, and filled several hypodermic needles stolen from a hospital supply cart before injecting herself with the sedative. The loopy woman then tried to reconnect the IV tube back into the machine, but screwed it up, causing an air bubble in the line. Fortunately, the potentially fatal air bubble did not enter her son’s body. When hospital personnel entered the room and found Remsing passed out on the couch with blood on her clothing and bloody hypos scattered about, they realized what was up and properly reconnected the boy’s IV. The woman police she jacked her son’s pain meds because she was tired from not having slept in a couple of days. Oh, and she’s a depressed and recovering drug addict. She was booked on charges of of recklessly endangering another person, endangering the welfare of a child, possession of a controlled substance, criminal mischief, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, possession or use of paraphernalia and theft by unlawful taking or disposition.…Continue Reading

When police arrived at the home, McGinley’s three roommates were in tears, one of them so disgusted she nearly vomited. Roommate Bridget Spicer told police McGinley walked into the home that evening with an injured kitten in each hand.

A second roommate confronted McGinley as he sat in the bathroom talking to himself. She, too, asked what his intentions were. “I ran these two cats over with my truck and now they’re my dinner. I am going to eat them,” was his response. And that’s about the time the police were called. Officers found McGinley sitting in the blood-spattered bathroom and placed him under arrest.…Continue Reading

See, the young man’s girlfriend was on her way over and he felt Fehr was “being disrespectful” by sitting out there in his draws.
