FONTANA, CA – A man walked into a California Target, headed to the kitchen section where he obtained a knife, then proceeded to stab himself to death.
Officials say that on Wednesday around 11 a.m., the man walked into the Target at 15272 Summit Ave. in the Falcon Ridge Town Center.
He made his way to the store’s kitchen section where he opened a package and pulled out a knife that he used to stab himself in the torso. He died at the scene.
“Upon arrival, our officers located an individual with an apparent self-inflicted stabbing wound to the torso area,” said Martha Guzman-Hurtado, police spokeswoman. “It appears that this incident is suicide.”
Target remained open for two more hours and did not close until the coroner arrived to remove the man’s dead body. This decision didn’t sit well with some people who were in the store shopping at the time of the incident.
“It’s disgusting that they would let people continue to shop when there’s a dead body inside,” said Marlene Rodriguez, who was in the store shopping until 1:30 p.m.…
According to reports, 27-year-old Giordanni Osse went to a home Monday night to retrieve clothing that belonged to a female acquaintance.
The three occupants inside – members of the Latin Kings street gang – were not happy to see him.
This could’ve been because Osse is a member of the rival Bloods gang, or because Osse may have broken into the home. That latter detail still isn’t clear but even if he had, Nassau Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said what happened next did not fit the criteria of “reasonable” self-defense.
The home’s three occupants – Johnathan Faneytt, 21; Jesus Maldonado, 22; and Jorge Freire-Romero – punched, kicked and hit Osse in the head with a handgun. They then handcuffed Osse and placed in a bathtub where he was stabbed 12 times with a steak knife.
Police say Osse was then tied to a chair for hours and beat “within inches of his life.” Afterwards, Osse was put in a car and dumped on a street three miles away without his shoes or pants.…
According to Russian news outlets, 23-year-old Aleksandr U. was once the member of the punk rock band the Easy Riders. His bandmates kicked him out after learning he had a tendency to dress in women’s clothing.
One night in July of last year, Aleksandr had some friends over to the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, 22-year-old Viktoria V. According to reports, Aleksandr partaked in some alcohol and some bath salts – a drug we here at DD are familiar with – and lost his freaking mind.
After his friends left, Aleksandr attacked Viktoria with a knife, stabbing and cutting her more than 53 times in the chest, neck and lower extremities. He eventually decapitated Viktoria and, while wearing one of her dresses, performed sexual acts with her severed head.
As for a motive, investigators think that Viktoria was trying to break up with him after discovering he was wearing her makeup and clothing.…
Last January, someone walking ini some woods outside of Berlin found the charred remains of 19-year-old Maria Peiner, who was 8-months-pregnant.
It didn’t take long before police had Peiner’s boyfriend, Toben, in custody – along with his long-time friend, 20-year-old Daniel Mueller.
Both men blamed the other for Peiner’s death, but police would eventually determine that both men lured the pregnant teen into the woods after telling her they were going shopping for baby clothes.
Once in the woods, Toben hit the girl with a piece of wood before stabbing her with a bread knife. He then poured gasoline on the still conscious girl, and set her on fire.
“She was still conscious, it could have been 10, 20, 30 seconds – she was still moving,” the judge said at Toben’s sentencing.
The judge accused Toben of hatching the plan to kill his pregnant girlfriend because “he wanted a free, happy life which he had control over.” As for Mueller the judge said he “acted for the sole purpose of taking pleasure in the destruction of another human being’s life.”
Both men were sentenced to 14 years in prison….…

According to police, Havelow lives with his grandmother, mother and sister. He reportedly is not happy with the situation because, according to him, the women keep him from having a normal social life.
This resentment boiled over when he returned home at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday after taking his mommy’s car out to smoke weed with a friend. When he asked his mommy if his friend could spend the night, she said no, and Havelow lost it.
He began arguing with his mother and grandmother about them keeping him from having a girlfriend and not allowing him to smoke pot in the house. Now keep in mind, this man is twenty-fucking-four, unemployed, lives with his mother, and has no car. Yet he’s blaming them for being a loser.
