Police found 23-year-old Joaquin Mendez outside of a home with a gunshot wound to the chest. They were told by his cousin, 24-year-old Alexandro Garibaldi, that he found his cousin like that after hearing a gunshot.
However, witnesses told a completely different story. They said Mendez had put on a bulletproof vest and sat in a chair while wondering aloud “whether it still worked.”
The cousins found out it didn’t after Garibaldi allegedly pulled out a handgun and said “Let’s see,” before shooting Mendez in the chest. Police would find the bloody vest inside the home.
Mendez would be pronounced dead at the hospital while Garibaldi was arrested and charged with manslaughter. He was being held Sunday without bond.
Before anyone decides to post the obligatory “Floriduh” comment, these two are not the only ones we have featured on DD who found out a bullet-proof vest did not work.…

Police say that on Tuesday morning, the couple were working in King’s Beauty when they caught the 13-year-old girl and a friend shoplifting items from the store.

However, the girls came back and this time were able to get away with some merchandise. The couple called police and the two girls were located in an adjacent lot. One girl was taken into custody for an outstanding juvenile warrant, but the 13-year-old was let go with a warning after the couple refused to press charges.

In December of 1989, DeLeon left her boyfriend’s house and was headed home. The next morning, a railroad crew found her dead body alongside the railroad tracks. The teen had suffered a head wound and had been stabbed multiple times.
In January 1994, Ault was found shot to death inside her home. She was found with her crying 4-year-old son and 6-month-old daughter next to her body. Her husband told police that that they had received threatening phone calls from a woman in the days before Ault’s murder.
Police identified the woman caller, but did not have enough evidence for any kind of prosecution. This same woman also knew DeLeon, police saying she was a romantic rival linked to the men in the murdered women’s lives.
“The investigation has revealed that the suspect and an accomplice have been involved in other incidents involving the harassment and intimidation of romantic rivals,” Detective Scott Howard said in a prepared statement.…
Heeringa was last seen in April of 2013 as she prepared to close up the Exxon Mobil gas station where she worked the late shift. A concerned customer called police 15 minutes after Herringa had made her last sale to report there was no employee at the open gas station.
Police believed Heeringa had been abducted from the store as her purse and keys were still there, and there was evidence she had been in the process of closing the store. Unfortunately, the gas station was not equipped with surveillance cameras but there were reports of a van in the area at the time.
Now, three years later, police think they may have the person responsible for Heeringa’s disappearance – and he may be a serial killer. Last week, 46-year-old Jeffrey Willis was charged with trying to abduct a teenage girl in April.…
Now that more details have come out, a clearer picture of events has emerged that shows why a Fort Hood soldier has been charged with the shooting death of a Good Samaritan in a Walgreens’ parking lot.
Quinisha Jones said she was surprised to see her husband of two months, 22-year-old Ricci Bradden, show up outside the Walgreens where she worked because he was supposed to be at Fort Hood. Turns out her husband was angry over a selfie she had posted on Facebook and had come to her work to confront her about it.
“He was just saying I was tripping, and I wanted attention from other people and attention from my husband just wasn’t enough,” Johnson said. “And I was trying to explain it to him, that I married you. You’re all the attention that I needed. And I could feel that he was getting mad, so I tried to walk off, and that’s when I heard him pull the gun out.”
Bradden fired two shots at her feet — the second shot hitting her ankle.…
MILWAUKEE, WI – The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office say a woman was killed while driving down Highway 175 after a child in the backseat got his hands on a gun and shot her in the back.
Police responded to the scene Tuesday morning and found 26-year-old Patrice Price with a single gunshot wound to her back.
Despite life-saving efforts by police and paramedics, the mother of three was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to her father, the car Price was driving belonged to her boyfriend who works as a security guard. He had left his gun inside the vehicle and Price’s 2-year-old son found it and shot his mother from the backseat.
Price’s death comes less than two months after we reported on a Florida mom who was driving when she was shot in the back by her kid.
In that case, 31-year-old Jamie Gilt was driving when her 4-year-old son found a loaded handgun and shot his mother from the backseat. Gilt, a vocal gun enthusiast, survived her injuries but may be facing a misdemeanor charge of allowing a child to access a firearm.…
Victoria Reid, 60, reportedly confronted her 60-year-old husband about an affair he was allegedly having.
She had him sit on a sofa, then pulled out a gun that she used to taunt him with by aiming it at his head and chest.
According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, she told her husband of 16 years that she wanted to maim him and give him post-traumatic stress disorder – a condition she reportedly suffers from.
She may very well have succeeded, because she shot her husband in the knee. If that weren’t bad enough, the bullet traveled up the man’s thigh and took up residence in his testicles.
The man’s condition is not known, but Reid was arrested on Wednesday and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated domestic violence, false imprisonment and firing a weapon inside a home. She’s currently in the Brevard County Jail on a $35,000 bond.…
