Calgary – Police in Calgary have named Matthew de Grood, the son of a police officer, as the sole suspect in what they call the worst mass murder in their city’s history.
It is still unclear what spurned the attack, but it happened at an all day party attended by several dozen University of Calgary students celebrating the end of classes.
De Grood had been invited to the party and arrived there after finishing his shift at a local grocery store. But for reasons unknown, at around 1:20am, the 22-year-old turned a kitchen knife on some of the party-goers.
When the attack was over, Joshua Hunter, Kaitlin Perras, and Jordan Segura were dead at the scene, while Lawrence Hong and Zackariah Rathwell would die later at the hospital.
Police would apprehend de Grood less than an hour later after he was tracked down by a K9 unit. He was treated for dog bites before being charged with five counts of first-degree murder.
Police chief Rick Hanson said de Grood targeted the victims one by one, stabbing them multiple times.…Continue Reading
Last month I reported on 27-year-old Andrew Ward after he was arrested and accused of stabbing his 12-year-old half brother to death for no reason other than he “just felt like killing.”
For the last three weeks, Ward has been in custody at Maricopa County jail while awaiting his trial. His cellmate during this time was 33-year-old Douglas Walker, who was serving a few years for armed robbery.
On Wednesday night, inmates alerted guards that the two men were fighting. When they made their way inside the two men’s cell, officials would find Walker dead after Ward turned his head into a bit of psychotic performance art.
According to officials, Ward used a golf pencil to stab Walker in the eyes, used a playing card to slit Walker’s throat, smeared peanut butter on his head and shoved a plastic bag down Walker’s throat.…Continue Reading
Minneapolis, MN – After shooting his son to death during an argument about cable television, an 84-year-old man reportedly told police he wasn’t about to settle the matter in some foolish courthouse — nope, he was gonna settle that argument once in for all in the afterlife.
According to police, Pang Se Vang was upset that his son, 36-year-old Chue Vang, refused to have cable television installed in the home they shared. Chue basically told his father that if he didn’t like it, he could move the fuck out. My house, my rules kinda thing….
Anyway, instead of moving out, Pops apparently armed himself with a shotgun and put a new hole in Chue’s chest Monday evening. Another shot was fired when Pang’s eldest son disarmed him, but there were no other injuries.
Left without a gun, Pang locked himself in his room. When police arrived on scene, Pang made it very clear that he was armed with knives. When officers requested that he exit the room with his hands up, Pang responded that he couldn’t, he had stabbed himself in the chest.…Continue Reading

Boca Raton, FL – Dimitrios Karaloukas , owner of Jimmy the Greek Taverna in Boca Raton, was stabbed to death by an employee last week after the stabby guy learned Karaloukas has posted a photo of him on the internet.
Tilus Lebrun, who is not pictured here because he still looks really pissed off and stabby in his mugshot and it’s Florida so he might make bail at some point, apparently stabbed 61-year-old Karaloukas inside the Taverna Thursday evening as horrified dinner guests looked on. Karaloukas was stabbed three times on his left side and once in his back, police say.
An unidentified male employee at the restaurant was also stabbed several times. His condition is unknown at this time.

PHOENIX, AZ — Police arrested 27-year-old Andrew Ward after he admitted he’d stabbed his 12-year-old half-brother to death in the family’s home.
On Wednesday morning, Andrew Ward called 911 from a convenience store claiming he had stabbed someone without going into any further details. When police arrived and detained Andrew, he had blood on his hands and clothes, had a knife in his pocket, and appeared out of it.
He told police the person he stabbed could be found in his family’s home nearby. When police entered the home, they found Andrew’s younger brother, 12-year-old Austin Tapia, dead from multiple stab wounds.

KNOXVILLE, TN – A woman wanted for the attempted murder of her mother was arrested after she walked up to a news crew and admitted on camera that she tried to stab her mother to death because her mother was the antichrist and the leader of a satanic cult.
Laurie Nichols told authorities that her daughter, 31-year-old Katie Nichols, busted into her room around 3:40am Tuesday, put a sock in her mouth and told her to eat it. Nichols then tied her mom up and strangled her until she lost consciousness before stabbing her once in the chest with a small kitchen knife, once in the abdomen with a large kitchen knife, and once in the neck with a pair of scissors.

JAMAICA QUEENS, NY – No car seat…no problemo! After brutally stabbing his wife to death, 28-year-old Miguel Mejia-Ramos stabbed his two young daughters because he didn’t have car seats to take them with him on his way to Mexico.
Mejia-Ramos appeared in court Friday and was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and faces life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted. No bail was granted and Mejia-Ramos was placed on suicide watch following court.
Authorities said that, on January 19th, Mejia-Ramos got off work at 6 p.m. and spent the evening drinking beer at a friends house. He arrived home around 11 p.m. and brutally murdered his wife, 21-year-old Deisy Garcia, after he checked his wife’s phone and Facebook account (ohhh that pesky Facebook), and flew into a rage when he discovered a photo of his wife with another man.

Mundelein, IL — A 14-year-old girl is facing three counts of murder after authorities say she stabbed her 11-year-old sister nearly 40 times. Apparently, her ungrateful little sister didn’t appreciate everything she had done for her.
“She indicated she was mad from the night before,” said Asst. State’s Atty. Claudia Kasten during a detention hearing for the teen. “She went downstairs to get a knife. . .With each stab wound, she said she was not thankful for what she (the older girl) had done.”
Kasten, citing the autopsy, told the court the teen stabbed the girl 30 times across the neck, chest and arms and slashed her face three times. The girl also suffered bruises to her chest, and non-penetrating knife wounds “too numerous to count,” meaning she probably was jumping away from the knife, police say.
Police learned of the attack early Tuesday morning after receiving a 911 call from the teen. Her initial story was that she woke to the sound of her sister’s screams just before 8:00 a.m.…Continue Reading

According to the unidentified 50-year-old victim, he and his brother, Michael Charles, were watching the Niners get their asses handed to them by the Seahawks Sunday, when Michael went to grab the last can of Pepsi.
Michael, apparently a Niner fan, had been drinking steadily throughout the day and continued to grow more and more agitated as the game dragged on. When the alleged victim asked him not to drink the last soda, shit got violent.
“Go fuck yourself,” Michael reportedly demanded. He then knocked his brother upside the dome with a metal pipe. Totally justified.
Michael then allegedly armed himself with a small knife and proceeded to stab his brother in the chest several times. In retaliation, the brother grabbed a knife and stabbed Michael in the arm. Sigh…. kinda makes me miss the family reunions I’m no longer invited to.…Continue Reading

Thailand – The lead singer for a Thai black metal band was stabbed to death by a Satanist who claimed the singer was a big fat phony.
Last Wednesday, Prakarn Harnphanbusakorn went to the home of 36-year-old Samong Traisattha, a member of the band Surrender of Divinity. According to Traisattha’s wife, he’d stopped by to do some t-shirt screen printing and have some drinks with her husband. She said she went to put their child to bed and returned around an hour later to find her husband dead in the living room, lying in a pool of blood.
While police were searching for Harnphanbusakorn, a post was made on Facebook by someone calling themselves Maleficent Meditation. The poster took credit for Traisattha’s murder and posted pictures of the crime scene (NSFW\L) that will make a great cover for Surrender of Divinity’s next album. The poster, who police believe is Prakarn, described stabbing Traisattha 30 times while the victim begged for his life.
He wanted it to be clear that this wasn’t a John Lennon type of assassination – he was no fan of Traisattha or Surrender of Divinity’s music.…Continue Reading
Haywards Heath, West Sussex — A 19-year-old believed to be under the influence of some sort of party drug, “meow meow” being one possibility, is reported to have stabbed his mother and severed his own dick.
Not a lot of info on this, but the kid was apparently home for Christmas break, and after indulging in a bit of plant food, went berserk and stabbed his 46-year-old mother. That accomplished, he got busy on the family jewels.
Mom called emergency services to the home, where the kid was found hanging from a bedroom window, blood gushing from his new, temporary vagina.
Both parties were rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
As of yesterday, mom was listed in stable condition, and it appears as if surgeons were able to successfully reattach the boy’s dick. He, too, is listed as stable.
It might just be me, but every time we cover a story involving a severed dick, I get a sudden urge for chili dogs. I might need psychiatric help….…Continue Reading
North Charleston, SC — Kayso, I’m a little late on this one – those who know me would expect nothing less from the Queen of Procrastination – but since it’s looking like Crazy Lady Day at The Dreamin’ Demon, I’m gonna go ahead and throw in Helen Williams.
Williams, 44, sent her common-law husband out for some beer late Christmas Eve, and when the man returned home empty handed due to the fact that the stores were closed, she got a little testy.
The 41-year-old man was apparently in the kitchen upon his return (making his own damn sammich, by the way), when Williams grabbed the squirrel and knocked him upside the back of the head with it. Then, police say, she stabbed him with it. I, for one, would love to see this friggin’ squirrel… sounds like I need a similar one for my “collection.”
Anyway, the man tore out of the house and headed to the neighbors to call police. When police arrived shortly after midnight, they found the man covered in blood, suffering from cuts to the face and shoulder.…Continue Reading
According to investigators, the girl was dropped off at home Friday and was apparently unhappy about it. The girl reportedly told police her mother, Toshia Edmonson, said something about “giving her away” and shoved her down on a couch.
Like something ripped from one of my own nightmares, the spawn waited until her mother fell asleep and armed herself with a kitchen knife. She then crept into her mother’s bedroom and got to stabbing, police said. Nine friggin’ times. This kid was more than just a little unhappy, methinks.
The commotion apparently woke the girl’s younger brother, who later told police he heard his mother screaming for the girl to stop it, and saw the both of them covered in blood.
Edmonson was apparently able to get her hands on the knife and fell on top of the child to stop the attack.
The girl reportedly told police she stabbed her mother because she was “so, so angry and frustrated with her.” She’s now cooling her little heels in the Henry Wade Juvenile Center.…Continue Reading

The man told police he was just getting his hair cut Monday, when one of the salon’s other barbers started giving him shit. The two apparently have some sort of long running feud-type thing going on. He knows the barber from around the neighborhood, he told police, but the two certainly aren’t friends. He also told police the barber had assaulted him on previous occasions, but he never reported it.
Anyways, the alleged victim had had enough of the man’s crap that day, and after he was finished in the chair, asked him to kindly knock it the fuck off. The mean barber reportedly responded with a death threat of sorts, in addition to threats of a stabbin’ and a punchin’. And with that, the victim said, the barber grabbed a pair of scissors and attempted to stab him in the gut.…Continue Reading
