Naperville, Illinois -- What would you do if a security guard caught you smoking in a bar bathroom? Any rational person would decide to step outside to finish that smoke, but not Adam Heard and his obviously equally intelligent girlfriend, Kelly Cihlar.
The 31-year-old man and his 25-year-old girlfriend were having a cigarette in the Blackfin American Saloon bathroom when the security guard entered and told them to take it outside. Hearn decided he had a better idea. He started arguing and began fighting with the security guard. Then, he pulled out a knife and got all stabby. Other security guards stepped in and subdued Heard until police arrived.
The guard must have had some extensive injuries because he had to undergo surgery after being transported to Edward Hospital. His current condition has not been released.
Cihlar was charged with obstruction of a police officer, resisting arrest, battery, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of cannabis.
Heard was charged with aggravated battery with a weapon, aggravated battery with great bodily harm and possession of a weapon by a felon.…Continue Reading
New Orleans, LA – New Orleans police arrested a 10-year-old boy on Saturday, accusing him of stabbing his 15-year-old brother in the back twice with a kitchen knife.
Reports are that the brothers had gotten into an argument after the victim told his brother to quit wrestling with his cousin in fear of one of them getting hurt.
The 10-year-old got pissed and retrieved a knife from the kitchen. When he approached his brother, a struggle over the knife ensued, ending with the 10-year-old stabbing his older brother twice in the back.
No word on the condition of the victim, but his younger brother was arrested and placed in a juvenile facility.
Kid’s got some anger management issues, right? God knows me and my brother got into it from time to time, but the worst I ever did was shoot him in the head with a pellet gun. But that was just a
well-aimed shot accident.…
UPPER MERION, Pa. – A man with a history of mental illness has been charged with the stabbing deaths of his mother, father and twin brother on Saturday.
Police were responding to a domestic disturbance call at the home of 70-year-old Joseph McAndrew, 64-year-old Susan McAndrew. The couple lived there with their two sons Joseph and James McAndrew, both 23.
When they arrived, they found Joseph outside in the driveway covered in blood. Inside the home, reportedly in the kitchen, they found the dead bodies of his family. All three had been stabbed to death. Police described the bloody scene as ‘violent’ and ‘gruesome’ adding that it was apparent the three had fought for their lives.
Joseph, who has a history of mental illness, was taken into custody and charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Detectives removed several knives from the home, including a samurai sword.
A friend of James told reporters that he had just recently mentioned dealing with his twin brother’s mental instability. “[He said], ‘I have to go back home and deal with his paranoia.’ I said, ‘what do you mean?’ He said, ‘my brother thinks everybody is after him,’” the friend recounted.…Continue Reading
FLUSHING, NY – Police have charged a woman with the stabbing death of her son, who was suffering from cerebral palsy, before trying to kill herself.
Rene Vera, 38, was found dead with stab wounds in the family’s apartment after his mother, 57-year-old Migdalia Vera, called 911 saying her son had been hurt. She told police that her son had been depressed and had asked her to help him put a knife in his chest.
But the DA says this was no mercy killing. He says that after an argument, Vera picked up a knife from the kitchen, stabbed her son twice in the chest and then held a pillow over his face for at least two minutes.
Afterwards, Ms. Vera tried to kill herself by cutting her wrists and stabbing herself. She did not succeed and was in stable condition on Thursday night at New York Hospital Queens. She has been charged with second-degree murder and first-degree manslaughter.
Personally, I have no problem buying someone with cerebral palsy would welcome death.…Continue Reading
NEW YORK, NY – Two women got into a public argument on Facebook over money borrowed to buy diapers that ended with one woman dead and the other in jail charged with stabbing her to death.
Authorities say 22-year-old Kamisha Richards got into a Facebook argument with her brother’s girlfriend, 18-year-old Kayla Henriques. The argument started over Richards lending Henriques $20 for diapers that she spent on something else. The back-and-forth exchange continued to get more and more personal with Richards making this post on Henriques Wall:
“I don’t give a f–k. U know ya sister so its not just ova $20 its the principle so don’t make it seem like I’m goin n 4 $20 she kno wat she did and she real f–ked up … this aint the 1st time she did dum sh-t…F–K THESE NOSY PPL!!!!”

“Trust, Ima have the last laugh,” Richards responded.…Continue Reading
Reports are 53-year-old Wade Ridley drove to the home of his ex-girlfriend, 62-year-old Anne Simenson, and stabbed her multiple times with a machete and a butcher knife. He then stole her car as well as some jewelry and electronics.
After he was pulled over driving Simenson’s car and arrested outside the Hard Rock Hotel, he admitted to the murder, robbing a Safeway pharmacy of some oxycodone shortly afterwards and that weeks earlier, he had tried to murder another ex-girlfriend.
In that incident, Ridley told police he was so angry with a woman he met on Match.com for breaking up with him, he broke into her garage and waited for her to come home with the sole purpose of killing her. He told police he wanted to make her pay “for how she mistreated him.”
When 49 year-old Mary Kay Beckman arrived home, Ridley admitted to knocking her to the ground and stabbing her multiple times until the blade of the knife broke inside her. …Continue Reading
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.…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
