Lincoln, NE — When Kristin Renee-Walz’s husband showed up in the emergency room Friday night with knife wounds to his elbow, forearm and knee, he reportedly told medical personnel that he was a sleep-eater and must have injured himself while sleep-slicing himself a piece of cake. It could happen, right?
Wrong. Police didn’t buy the flimsy excuse and arrested Renee-Walz. Authorities seem to believe the woman armed herself with a KA-BAR knife with a 5″ blade and proceeded to get stabby after hubby refused to take her out. She ultimately left a deep, 2-inch cut on hubby’s right elbow as well as 1 1/2-inch cuts to his forearm and knee. Weird….she doesn’t look crazy. oO
Renee-Walz, 40, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault and use of a weapon to commit a felony.…Continue Reading
Fort Collins, CO – Summoned to a mobile home on a report of a stabbing early Saturday morning, police found Bernadette Deleon, 27, bleeding from her chest and abdomen. She was transported to the hospital and found to have four different stab wounds, reportedly inflicted by Jeremy Velasquez, 30, and Michelle Aleman, 21. What was the weapon of choice for these two? A barbeque fork.
Although it is unclear why the fight broke out and which defendant actually stabbed the victim, both still remained jailed for the incident and may face significant criminal charges.
Michelle Aleman, 21, is being held on a $50,000 bond. She faces charges of first-degree assault and has a prior felony conviction, prosecutors said.
Aleman and Deleon are sisters; deputies said they believe Velasquez is Deleon’s boyfriend. I’m not quite sure why the victim’s boyfriend and her sister would team up against her, but my mind is definitely considering a love triangle.…Continue Reading
Police were called to the home Tuesday afternoon on a report of two females fighting – a man who lived in the apartment below said the fight caused pictures and other items to be knocked off of his walls.
Inside the apartment, officers found broken bottles and shards of glass all over the living room floor. A bedroom door appeared to have been ripped off the hinges and Stephanie’s 24-year-old sister was found on the floor…her face covered in blood. She had a large stab wound on her left cheek with an 8-10″ piece of wood trim sticking out of her face.
The victim told police she had been beaten by her sister. Stephanie first attacked with her fists, punching her sister more than 15 times, before getting stabby with the wood trim. The woman was transported to the hospital where the wood had to be surgically removed.…Continue Reading
BROOKLYN, NY – Police finally caught 23-year-old Maksim Gelman, the Brooklyn man who went on a killing spree that started Friday morning.
Police say that Gelman arguing with his stepfather, 54-year-old Aleksandr Kuznetsov, over the use of his car, Gelman stabbed the man to death. Gelman then took his stepfather’s car and struck a 41-year-old crossing guard as he fled the scene. The man he struck survived, suffering a broken leg.
Gelman would remain hidden until later that afternoon when he went to the apartment where his ex-girlfriend and her mother lived. Gelman stabbed 56-year-old Anna Bulchenko more than a dozen times before chasing her daughter, 20-year-old Yelena Bulchenko, outside the building and proceeded to stab her more than a dozen times as well.
By time police arrived at the scene both women were dead and Gelman had fled after stabbing 60-year-old Art DiCrescento and stealing his car. DiCrescento was taken to the hospital in critical condition after walking a block in the snow and screaming for help.
A mile away, Gelman struck 60-year-old Steve Tannenbaum with DiCrescento’s car.…Continue Reading
The details are a bit sketchy, but here’s what I’ve learned so far:
On January 30th, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office received a report from an anonymous tipster about an illegal cockfight that was under way in a field in Earlimart. When deputies arrived on scene and started rufflin’ feathers, all hell broke loose – people and poultry both scrambled to get away. In the midst of this uproar, Ochoa somehow suffered a severe cut to the calf from a blade attached to one of the cocks.
The cock in question responded to the deputies inquiries with an emphatic “BWAAK!” before pointing the finger at another fiendish fowl still at the scene. Ha! Just kidding….roosters don’t have fingers, silly.
Ochoa was transported to the Delano Regional Medical Center where he died a couple hours later. Authorities said this is the first time they have seen a human die as the result of a cockfight.…Continue Reading
Henrietta, NY — Kevin Minemier and his girlfriend were standing in the frozen food aisle of Wegmans Food Markets early Wednesday morning, when Kevin suddenly and inexplicably pulled a 6″ serrated knife out of his coat sleeve and viciously attacked – repeatedly stabbing the girl in the eyes, face and shoulder.
Police say 18-year-old Minemier and 17-year-old Nicole Bean had been in a relationship for just a few weeks. And now he’s facing charges of assault and attempted murder, and she’s facing a long and complicated recovery.
Witnesses to the brutal attack said it looked like something out of a horror movie. Mustafa Said and Chris Patino, both 16, rushed to help Bean after hearing her scream for help. Patino punched Minemier in the head and held him down while Said grabbed the knife. Said was stabbed in the hand several times during the struggle.
When police reviewed the surveillance video, Minemier and Bean were seen embracing just moments before the attack. At this point, there is no reason, no motive behind the bizarre stabbing, but it appears as if Minemier planned it.…Continue Reading
Cherokee County, GA — The barely legal cutie to the left is 18-year-old Jeremiah Gossett – he was taken into custody early Wednesday morning after reportedly stabbing his best friend in the neck while attempting to hypnotize him.
According to police, Gossett and his friend, 19-year-old James Stanley, had been hanging out, drinking and smoking pot, when Gossett asked Stanley if he could hypnotize him. Stanley agreed to play along and closed his eyes in preparation. Right about then, he felt a sharp pain in his neck. Stanley told investigators he opened his eyes and saw Gossett holding a knife.
Gossett didn’t stick around long after that – police said he ran from the residence and attempted to kill himself by slashing his wrists with the same knife. He failed to do much damage…both men were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Gossett was arrested after being released from the hospital, charged with aggravated assault, and is currently in custody on $22,200 bond. With those looks, the kid had better keep a real tight hold on the soap……Continue Reading
Fort Pierce, FL — Accused of killing his pet pit bull, Joseph Barker told police he had grown tired of the dog’s incessant barking, so he beat it with a tire iron a bit before stabbing it to death.
According to authorities, on January 8, Joseph Barker paid a friend $20 to drive him and the 3-year-old pit bull to the L-20 canal. After exiting the vehicle, Barker reportedly struck the dog on the head a few times with a tire iron and tossed him into the canal. The blows to the head didn’t kill the dog, and as it tried to climb the embankment, Barker reportedly grabbed it and stabbed it in the neck approximately 26 times. He later told police he didn’t feel that beating and poking the animal full of holes was inhumane.
A family member later learned of the incident and retrieved the dog’s body from the canal before contacting police. Barker, 35, is being held without bond, charged with animal cruelty.…Continue Reading
Bristol, CT — Marc Higgins, 21, is being held on murder and assault charges after police say he stabbed four random people at a party over the weekend because a woman at the party supposedly made a stink about his anal emissions.
According to authorities, an intoxicated Higgins “was farting throughout the evening” Saturday, prompting a female partygoer to slap him. Embarrassed and enraged, Higgings reportedly stormed out of the apartment, only to return about 45 minutes later armed with three knives. Police say Higgins didn’t specifically target anyone, but just started lashing out at those unfortunate enough to be within stabbing distance.
Though authorities claim several people were attacked, only four required medical attention. Fellow partygoers Sandra Ranger, 18, David Klett, 19, and Tyler Basso, 18, were all treated for their injuries and released. A man Higgins considered a friend, 21-year-old Matthew Walton, wasn’t so lucky – he was pronounced dead at the hospital. Higgins fled from the scene after all the pokin’, but turned himself in a few hours later.…Continue Reading
Charleston, West Virginia – A woman was charged with domestic battery after allegedly stabbing her boyfriend in the nose during an argument.
Richard Lee Vaten, 41, and Lisa Kay Casdorph, 40, were arguing in a car just before 7:30 pm on Monday. The couple pulled into the parking lot of a Go-Mart convenience store where they continued to argue. That is until Casdorph used an ink pen and/or car keys to stab Vaten in the nose.
It isn’t clear what the argument was about, but the stabby lady not only got herself a domestic battery charge, she also got a possession of methamphetamine charge after a search turned some up in her purse. She was in the South Central Regional Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $10,000 bond.
Moral of the story: don’t mess with a meth head.…Continue Reading
Novi, MI – Police were called to the home Mark Schons shares with his wife and two children Friday afternoon after the boys, Camden, 4, and Tynan, 6, failed to show up for school, and his wife Jennifer, 38, missed an appointment with friends.
When officers arrived, Jennifer and the boys were found dead in separate rooms of the home. Jennifer had apparently been stabbed to death, and Camden and Tynan died of asphyxiation due to compression — Camden with smothering as a secondary cause of death. Hours later, 39-year-old Mark was found dead inside his vehicle in a WalMart parking lot a few miles from his home – police say the cause of death was carbon monoxide poisoning.
“He apparently purchased the grill somewhere, placed it on the passenger seat next to him, and just went to sleep,” Novi Police Chief David Molloy said. “It (grill) was still warm when his body was found.” Molloy also said a knife found inside the vehicle is believed to be the weapon used to kill Jennifer Schons, and is still undergoing testing.
Brodnax, VA — A former corrections officer has been charged with murder after allegedly stabbing her husband to death, reportedly after an argument over chili beans.
Police say that 34-year-old Tiffany Harrison stabbed her husband, 28-year-old William Harrison had been arguing off and on all day. But things got real bloody after William returned home from the store with the wrong kind of beans to be used in the chili Tiffany was making. The argument escalated to the point that Tiffany grabbed a knife and stabbed her husband.
Afterwards she dropped her husband off at the hospital and returned home to clean up the mess. It has not been reported where or how many times William had been stabbed, but the damage was so severe that he would die at the hospital and the staff would call police. After talking with Tiffany, she was arrested and charged with murder.
Tiffany met William while he was serving time at the Brunswick Correctional Center where she worked as a corrections officer. He had just moved into Tiffany’s home after being released from prison in October.…Continue Reading
Hawthorne, FL- Ronnie Ganley, 30, is another wacky representative from one of my favorite states I like to write about and more than likely will never, ever visit.
Late last Monday night, Ronnie got a tad ticked off with his mother and stepfather. The reason? They cut off the electricity to Ronnie’s camper that resided behind their home. Surely you can sympathize with the fury Ronnie must have felt when he was no longer able to
sponge off rely on his parent’s generosity and use their electricity to cook his five-star cuisine dented can of spaghetti-o’s. (Actually, that’s just a guess. I don’t know if he was cooking spaghetti-o’s. Just going by his looks alone, I would have to say cooking meth would probably be more like it.)
Anywho, after the power was cut, Ronnie decided to get even by stabbing his mother and stepfather. He then immediately ran into the woods and hid. The police arrived with a K-9 team to help search for Ronnie and located him within 45 minutes. When Ronnie refused to obey the deputies’ commands and tried to run away, a police dog was released.…Continue Reading
Fergus Falls, MN — Timothy Peterson, a self-described medicine man and soul collector, was charged with attempted murder after he reportedly tried to stab his neighbor to death in order to steal his soul.
Ivan Mallas, owner of the soul in question, told police Peterson, armed with a Bowie knife and a Coke bottle containing alcohol, showed up at his house early Sunday morning and declared he was there to kill him. When Mallas inquired as to why he had to die, Peterson reportedly responded, “Because I own your soul.” Oh, well in that case….
Peterson then commenced to gettin’ stabby…starting with Mallas’ toes. “He started stabbing that knife in between my feet; closer and closer, and I didn’t move,” said Mallas. He said Peterson was chanting, calling himself a “medicine man” and a “soul collector.” Peterson reportedly told him he’d already killed 13 people. Once Mallas started resisting, Peterson gave up on the toes and moved forward to the man’s head, threatening to scalp him. Mallas grabbed hold of the knife and the two began struggling.…Continue Reading
Bethany, OK — Reginald Bartlett told police he came home Saturday evening to find that his wife, 57-year-old Cathy Bartlett, had been stabbed to death. Bartlett hinted that the stabbing may have been the work of home intruders as a couple of drawers had been pulled open and items were strewn about the house. Before police could interview him, he was transported to a hospital because of his “distraught demeanor.” Once released, and after sitting through nearly three hours of questioning, Bartlett confessed, telling investigators he “snapped” when his wife caught him watching porn. According to him, Cathy walked into the computer room that evening, took one look at what was on the computer monitor, and began yelling at him about some bank statement. Cathy apparently believed her husband had been blowing dough on porn, and at some point during the altercation, hauled off and slapped him upside the head. That’s about the time he got to stabbin’. After stabbing her multiple times, Bartlett told police he pulled some of her clothes off to make it look like his wife had been raped, then emptied a drawer out on the floor to make it look like the house had been burglarized.…Continue Reading
College Station, TX – Police believe John Robert Murphy III is the man responsible for stabbing a 12-year-old girl in the lobby of McDonald’s Monday night. Police also believe the attack was random. According to the police report, a man police have identified as Murphy was sitting at a table inside the restaurant when the child entered with her father, a restaurant employee. The child was left waiting in the lobby as her father headed toward the back to conduct some business. Surveillance video shows the man throwing his trash away and heading for the exit where the little girl was standing. As he approached the child, he pulled a pocketknife out of his pocket, keeping it hidden from the girl behind his leg. On his way out of the restaurant, he paused just long enough to stab the girl once in the stomach. The child remains hospitalized in stable condition with a laceration to her colon. The girl later told police she could smell alcohol on the man’s breath, and that he called her a bitch when he stabbed her.…Continue Reading
Bangor, Maine- It’s easy to predict that a story is probably not going to turn out good when you have a woman who is pissed-off, drinking alcohol, and has access to sharp, pointy objects. Cynthia Dorion, 57, was arrested this last Thursday after she allegedly stabbed her husband in the back with a knife in the kitchen of their home. When asked the reason for attacking her better half, Dorion told police that she stabbed her husband because “I can’t stand him and he drives me nuts.” Police say the attack appeared to be unprovoked and Dorion was allegedly intoxicated when she decided to get all stabby. She was released Friday morning after posting $1,500 cash bail. Dorion faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000 on the aggravated assault charge, up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 on the assault with a dangerous weapon charge and up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000 on the domestic violence assault charge.…Continue Reading
UNION, NEW JERSEY – As I sit here listening to some Cloudkicker trying to get in the mood to update the site, I figured I’d post a couple stories first. Starting with this story out of New Jersey that sounds like a scene from a horror movie. The women were returning home after walking their dogs early this morning when they noticed various items from their backyard shed scattered around the yard. As the pair opened the shed to investigate, 25-year-old Morgan Mesz jumped out and began hacking the pair with a large hatchet. Luckily for them, their screams alerted a neighbor, 33-year-old Hernan Agudelo, who wasn”t like the majority of people who witness shit like this and break out their cell phones so they can get some Youtube video. Instead, this son-of-a-bitch whipped out a souvenir baseball bat, jumped a fence in his pajamas and started whacking Mesz in the head before tackling the mentally deranged man. Agudelo suffered several stab wounds but was treated and released from the hospital. “If he didn’t help, he would’ve killed the women,” neighbor Alex Kepuladze said.…Continue Reading
Meridian, ID – Michael James Lee, a former detention deputy at the Ada County Jail, was arraigned Wednesday on six felony charges for the alleged rape and abduction of his wife, and for the murder of his mother, 46-year-old Lynn Marie Blake. According to authorities, Michael sexually assaulted his wife on Tuesday, bound her with chains and tape, and put her in the trunk of a car. He placed their 4-month-old daughter in the backseat of the vehicle and the threeseom headed to his mother’s house. Michael’s wife later told police that he drove to Lynn’s home with the intention of robbing her. When Michael arrived at his mother’s house, he took the baby in and sat down to dinner with her and her 56-year-old partner, and carried on what was described as a “normal conversation” for nearly an hour. The wife? Still in the trunk. Lynn’s partner told police she went to lie down, but soon emerged from her room after hearing a strange noise. The noise was the sound of Michael stabbing his mother to death.…Continue Reading
Tampa, FL -- While attending a family gathering on New Year’s Eve, police say 23-year-old Xavier Thomas walked off with his 6-year-old son and stabbed the child nearly two dozen times before abandoning him at a playground. According to police, the family was outside lighting fireworks when Thomas disappeared with the boy. Family members noticed the child was missing about 20 minutes later and began searching for him. Right about then, Thomas returned to the apartment without the kid. When relatives asked where the boy was, Thomas took off running. Relatives then called police to report the child missing. As police arrived on scene, the child, Xavier Thomas Jr., reappeared – he was covered in blood and had been stabbed repeatedly in the back, chest, neck and arms. Though the boy lost a lot of blood, none of the injuries were life threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery. Physically, anyway. Police have not yet identified the motive behind the attack, but Yvonne Mickles, Thomas’ grandmother, said that just six weeks ago, Thomas was being treated for mental illness.…Continue Reading
