UNION, NJ — A 4-year-old boy was found starving inside an apartment with the body of his mother, who had been dead for about five days.
On Tuesday morning, a maintenance worker called police to report a foul odor coming from an apartment whose door was ajar but locked with a chain. When police arrived and entered the apartment, they found the emaciated 4-year-old inside with his mother, who was dead in her bedroom.
The boy told police he tried to heal his mother by rubbing lotion on her. He also told them he was unable to unlock the front door and had not eaten because he was unable to open the refrigerator.
“He made a statement to the officer that ‘There’s plenty of food in the refrigerator, but I couldn’t open the door,’” said Police Director Daniel Zieser. “So that’s kind of sad that nobody checked on him, no family members. It’s sad, very sad.”
Neighbors said they never heard any cries for help from the apartment, and police said there are no records of any 911 calls being made from the apartment.…Continue Reading
Las Cruces, NM — A 16-month-old girl was fatally attacked by a family pit bull Tuesday. Witnesses said the girl’s grandmother was accidentally shot by a neighbor trying to help the toddler. The witness accounts alleviated initial fears that a pit bull armed with a pistol and an opposable thumb was on the loose in New Mexico.
Around 11:30 a.m., Police were called by a neighbor reporting the girl’s attack and the grandmother, 52, crying for help. The 2-year-old pit bull reportedly attacked the girl in the backyard of her grandparents’ home. The grandmother was also attacked trying to help the girl.
The 69-year-old neighbor who called 911 then retrieved a .45-caliber handgun and went to help the grandmother and granddaughter. Police said the neighbor fired several shots at the dog, and one of them accidentally hit the grandmother’s leg.
“A lot of [the injuries were] to the top of her head and the side of her face,” neighbor Chris Wallard – who performed CPR – said. “I was really scared.…Continue Reading
HILLSBORO, Oreg. — A toddler in Oregon drowned after he fell into the family’s running washing machine.
According to the reports, the 21-month-old Oliver Hebb fell into the machine after he climbed on top of it while his mother, Tiffany Hebb, was in another room reading a magazine. Sadly, the machine was in a wash cycle.
Oliver’s mother found him partially submerged in the machine within minutes and pulled him out, but he wasn’t breathing. Her screams alerted neighbors who performed CPR on the boy. They were able to get Oliver breathing again but he never regained consciousness.
The family removed Oliver from life support on Sunday after it was determined that he was brain-dead. An autopsy report would reveal Oliver Hebb died of oxygen deprivation to his brain as a result of drowning and suffered physical trauma from the washer’s agitator.
Most washer’s are equipped with a safety mechanism that stops all mechanical functions if the lid is opened. That doesn’t always keep the machine from filling with water, or in this case, the agitator from working.…Continue Reading
Boston, MA – Dr. Colette Vieau and her family, a husband and two young daughters, had boarded a JetBlue flight back to Boston from the luxurious island of Turks and Caicos when they were told to get off. The reason? Their two-year-old, Natalie, was throwing a fit and refused to be seated.
In a courageous show of force, the girl’s parents finally managed to wrangle the beast and restrain her with a seat belt, holding her in place. Dr. Vieau, who states her family were never belligerent, angry or screaming, then said to a flight attendant, “We have them seated. Can we go now?”
It was at that point that the flight attendant informed them the pilot had already decided, for the safety of all customers and crewmembers on board, that the family be removed from the plane.
JetBlue released a statement explaining the pilot came to this decision because the family “did not comply with crewmember instructions for a prolonged time period.”
There were no more flights that night, and the family reports that they spent $2,000 for a hotel and new flights. I reckon they could have obtained a toddler-sized muzzle and straitjacket for less than half that.…Continue Reading
Hermitage, Mo. - Marlin Dallas Lane, 29, was caring for an 18-month-old girl in his home between August 15 to September 30, 2009 while her mother – with whom Lane had another child – was working. Any mistreatment of the toddler during that time went undetected, but only weeks later the toddler would be diagnosed with genital warts on both her vagina and anus. According to the Webster County Health Department, Lane had received the same diagnosis in 2007.
As you might expect, at that time, the child was unable to verbalize any account of sexual contact to which she may have been subjected. It wouldn’t be until February 2011 that – according to investigators – the victim was able to begin to communicate the details of a sexual assault to a children’s services employee.
During a follow-up interview with detectives, the child was able to further verbalize the abuse and use an anatomically correct drawing to show detectives what “Daddy Dallas” had done to her. For those inclined, you can view the charging documents as a Word document here.…Continue Reading
On November 25, police reported that a witness saw a 2-year-old girl, her 3-year-old brother and a dog on the roof of a house in town. The witness then saw the girl fall from the roof and land on concrete steps below. A man reportedly rushed to the child’s aid, scooping her up. According to court documents, Torres came out on the roof and, after seeing that the girl had fallen to the ground, asked the man holding her to ‘throw her back up.’
Oddly, the man refused – reportedly necessitating that Torres hump her ass down the stairs to retrieve the girl. The girl was reportedly taken to the hospital where she, thankfully, was found to have no injuries.
The lack of injuries may seem miraculous. Perhaps a bit of background is in order…
Police were called early last year when, according to court documents, the boy showed up at the hospital having ingested an oxycodone pill.…Continue Reading
They are not releasing many details surrounding the crime aside from charging him with two counts of rape for two separate incidents.
Further reports state the boy will not have to register as a sex offender because of his age, and that he’ll likely go into the court’s sex offender treatment program. “It’s about an 18-month curriculum that they have that juveniles have to go through and when they are done with that SOT program, they’re usually still on probation,” says Prosecutor Olender.
I was going to end the article here until I read some of the comments at the links above. Absolutely no details whatsoever on this case aside from the ages of the suspect and the victim and of course, the crime. But with that, the cause of this boils down to:
1. Lack of corporal punishment
2. Society going to hell in a handbasket

Kenosha, WI- On Saturday, officers in Wisconsin were alarmed to discover what they are calling one of the most disturbing abuse cases they had ever encountered. Inside a residence in Kenosha, police found a 2 1/2 year old child strapped in a car seat in a small, dark room. His face was covered, his diaper loaded, and his hair infested with lice. But that was not the worst of it. In the dining room of the home, a 38-year old woman was found lying on the floor covered in urine and feces with her left ankle was chained to a weight bench. The frail woman appeared to weigh no more than 70 pounds and, after the chain was cut, she could not straighten her legs, stand or walk. What kind of monsters would do something so cruel and callous?

He wanted to build a relationship with her and began to shower her with sweet little gifts and sugary treats. Months passed. The crush soon turned into an obsession – he started showing up at her home with more gifts and Hannah Montana CD’s. Wait….what? Hannah Montana?
