The handsome gent to the left, 58-year-old Willie Brown, was jailed Wednesday after police say he stabbed his roomie several times during an argument over a radio station.
According to police, Brown and his roommate, 72-year-old Abraham Shedrack, got into a verbal altercation after disagreeing about which radio station to listen to.
Investigators say the spat at the Palace Mobile Home Park quickly turned violent that evening, with Brown leaving at least 10 new holes in Shedrack’s body before it was over.
Why, yes, alcohol was a factor. Well, alcohol and whatever it is in the water supply out there that makes people ugly and batshit crazy.
Shedrack was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, officials said.
Brown was booked in the Pinellas County Jail and is being held without bail. He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder.
While researching this story, I came across another link referring to a second stabbing in the same mobile home park… same night, damn near the same time.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL – Police say two suspects, both armed with guns and a knife, forced their way into a woman’s home as she was arriving home from work late Monday evening. Once inside the residence, the robbers reportedly bound the woman’s 15-year-old son with duct tape before ransacking the home in an apparent search for drugs and/or money. At some point during their two hour stay, the home invaders allegedly forced the woman to melt butter and pour it over her chest. *blinks* Fortunately, the butter had cooled somewhat before coming into contact with her skin. Police don’t believe the melted butter thing was meant to be any sort of sexual threat, but was meant to be intimidating. Silly me, I thought that’s what the guns and knives were for! Before making their escape, the alleged butter bandits bound the woman in duct tape and made off with an AK-47, a Glock 36 and a couple of iPods. Police say another family was taken hostage in the area less than 24 hours earlier.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL - Elroy McConnell was on vacation with his family and decided to treat his three sons to a “guys night out” Saturday evening. After taking in a movie, the four were heading back to their rented beach house early Sunday morning, when they were all taken out by an alleged drunk driver. Police say an intoxicated Demetrius Jordan may have been traveling at a high rate of speed when he blew through a red light and slammed his Impala into McConnell’s Ford Fusion, sending the car and its passengers into a large support beam boasting 7-11′s gas prices. The McConnells, 51-year-old Elroy, 28-year-old Elroy III, 24-year-old Nathan and 19-year-old Kelly, were pronounced dead on the scene. A father and his three sons, two of them fathers themselves, gone in the blink of an eye. Just. Like. That. Demetrius, 20, his 20-year-old male passenger were both transported to the hospital with serious injuries. I hope to hell the fucker lives – I hope he’s physically mangled and in constant agony, but I hope he lives to pay.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL - Vladimir Struk was jealous of his step-daughter’s pit bull mix, Barry. Because he felt the dog was “living better than him,” he allegedly wrapped a zip tie around the dog’s neck and strangled it to death before tossing it in the trash can. Struk claims the 13-year-old dog was given meat to eat – meat that should have been given to him. According to police, “while the dog was screaming, Struk held it down so it could not get away and could not find anyone to help it.” Officers later found the animal in a trash bin, with the zip tie still present on his neck. Struk also threatened to kill his entire family in the same manner. It is believed that Struk may be suffering from mental issues. Noooo…really? Ya think? The 57-year-old man is being held on charges of animal cruelty and bail has been set at $10,000.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL – This is Joseph Rezendes. Don’t let his boyish good looks fool you, the dude is a real badass. He terrorizes the elderly and can totally whoop a double amputee’s ass, people. Yep, he’s a real tough guy. According to police, Rezendes first accosted an elderly woman at her front door late Saturday night and robbed her of the $8 she was holding in her hand before running off. About 5 minutes after that, he came across a double amputee sitting in a wheelchair and, without provocation, proceeded to beat the snot out of the guy, repeatedly punching him in the face. The victim was left with a swollen and scratched up face. Knowing that, one can only hope the bruises, scratches and scrapes on Rezendes’ face were caused by an officer repeatedly dragging the fucker across the pavement. When Rezendes was caught, he told the arresting officers he would apologize if police would just let him go. I bet’cha the little puke even shed a tear or two.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL – While watching an episode of American Idol in their motel room last Tuesday, Cynthia Bettis-Ware, 52, and her boyfriend, 47-year-old Kevin Johnson, had some sort of disagreement over something that happened on the show. Johnson, hoping to end the squabble, turned the channel. Ware, however, wasn’t finished with her tirade and continued running at the mouth. When she failed to put a cork in it, Johnson decided to just retire for the evening and the poor sap turned his back on the angry woman. Tsk, tsk. Someone wasn’t paying attention in class – the first thing they teach you at man school is to never turn your back on a pissed off crazy lady. Johnson awoke to find Ware standing over him with a 10″ butcher knife. Ware was still pissed off and feeling stabby. She stabbed her lover five times in the back and twice in the chest. And at some point during the melee, scalded him with hot chocolate. Johnson stripped her of the knife and beat feet out of the room.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL – Nicholas Marks, 20, is an unemployed and ungrateful little bastid who has been moochin’ off his cancer-stricken 83-year-old grandma for far too long. Despite her illness, the woman works five days a week to support her snot-nosed bratty grandson and is repaid not with kindness, but with threats and abuse. Last Sunday, Marks called police to report that he was beaten by his father’s girlfriend and pushed by his grandmother. While investigating his claims, police discovered that Marks is the abusive one and has been mentally and physically abusing his grandmother for nearly a year. The alleged abuse includes repeated insults directed at his grandmother and the screaming of vulgarities; repeated pokes to grandma’s arm; repeatedly fucking with the remote and changing channels while grandma was watching TV. On one occasion, grandma accidentally stepped on the brat’s foot and ended up knocking her head on a wall after he pushed her. On Sunday, after another argument over the TV, grandma retreated to another room, only to be followed by a yelling and screaming Marks.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL - What is it about Wal-Mart that makes some men totally lose all sense of morals and rationality? We have many stories here at the Dreamin’ Demon about men who stalk the aisles and bathrooms of Wal-Mart with the sole intent of ruining someone’s day to appease their own sick and twisted desires. Is it the lighting? The crowd? The odor? Really, I’d love to know. Let’s add Hugh Thompson to the ever-growing list of Wal-Mart miscreants. Hugh, a registered sex offender, was arrested after he was caught annoying and harassing women at a Wal-Mart Supercenter. According to authorities and video surveillance, Hugh appeared to be “wandering” aimlessly through the store for about 30 minutes, but he wasn’t doing any shopping. What he was doing was trying to garner the attention of female shoppers by “continuously zipping and unzipping his pants” after approaching or walking past them. According to police, it seemed as though he was waiting for the women to turn around and catch him with his pants unzipped.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, Florida–Police received a call around midnight on Friday from Kimberly Crone, who said she was following a motorist who was driving erratically. Before the call to 911 had even ended, the erratic driver plowed into Ted Manooch’s truck, which was parked in front of his house. The driver hit the parked vehicle with enough force to slam it right into the house. After the accident, Kimberly said she jumped out of her car and heard a baby crying. “I tried to break the window, but I couldn’t break it with my hand.” …Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL- If I ever live to be in my eighties, I want to be a feisty old broad like Joyce Trace. In the nursing home or psych ward, wherever it is that my kids decide to dump me off at, I plan to be the motherfucking Godmother of the place and smuggle in as much booze and contraband as possible. I will have my own “soldiers” who will be active in making sure the rest of our “grey ones” are properly taken care of and anyone who tries to interfere with the “family“, will be “sleeping with the fishes” just like Joyce’s attacker.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL–Christopher Mauro, 29, has a disorder. It’s called ‘selective and convenient amnesia.’ When authorities asked him about his sexual contact with an 8-year-old girl, the amnesia conveniently struck. ‘I cannot recall and I do not remember.’ Bummer. No worries though, Christopher…you filmed it all. I’m sure the prosecutor will have no problem refreshing your memory.
St. Petersburg, FL–The crazy things that crazy people do never ceases to amaze me. Take 63-year-old James Spencer Adams for instance. For some strange, unknown, fucked up reason, he decided he would jam the hook of a plastic clothes hanger down the throat of his 8-year-old step-grandson. I just can’t even come up with a single semi-reasonable explanation as to what could possibly possess him to do such a thing.…Continue Reading
