Sheaen Smith called 911 at about 2 p.m. Sunday, ranting about werewolves and vampires. When officers arrived at the home Smith shared with his mother, they found 57-year-old Aurora Lee Buol-Smith dead from multiple stab wounds. (Multiple = approximately 20). Several of those cuts, police say, were defensive wounds.
Officers made contact with Sheaen inside the home, and he apparently confessed to killing his mother…. in between delusional rants about werewolves and vampires and whatever else lives in a tweaker’s head. He was promptly arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder while armed with a deadly weapon.
Based on certain statements from Sheaen, investigators have reason to believe the motive, besides the whole vampire thing, was sexual in nature. Authorities have mentioned that it’s not clear if those statements were more delusions or actual facts, and they are waiting on the results of the autopsy.…
Walker, who lived in his grandmother’s garage, was apparently just hanging out drinking beer early Monday, and decided he’d had enough of the woman’s nagging — she repeatedly asked him to turn off the lights and maybe take shorter showers — and “decided her and his fates.”
He entered her bedroom as she slept Monday morning, and choked the life out of her. But, BUT, he wanted to make sure she was good and dead, so he slit her throat with a kitchen knife, too, he said.
Grandma didn’t go quietly… police say Walker had numerous scratches on his chin and mouth. Damn shame he didn’t have a kitchen knife sticking out of his jugular.
After washing his hands, Walker reportedly walked to the Washougal Police department and confessed to the murder.
In court Tuesday, Walker’s court-appointed attorney claimed Walker was “remorseful and sad” about his grandmother’s death.…
Police were called to a Walgreen’s store late that evening, where they found the woman’s 29-year-old victim with a stab wound to the chest.
The man told police he and the woman met on Craigslist after he made a post seeking friendship, and maybe some dating, but not sex. He said the two ended up at the Rodeo Inn, where he paid for a room. Probably most definitely not for sex, though.
They were lying on the bed together, he said, just talking, and the woman kept asking him if he was a serial killer. His answer, each time, was no.
After he told her “no” the last time, he says, the woman climbed on top of him and said, “Well, I am a serial killer!” and then proceeded to stab him in the chest with a pocket knife.
He managed to fight her off and escaped with a 1-2 inch laceration on his chest.…
John Gragg and his girlfriend, Susanne Baumann, said they let their Lhasa Apso and Pomeranian out to play on their six acres of fenced-in property. When they called the dogs in two hours later, only the Pomeranian returned.
The couple found the other dog, “Mr. Magoo,” dead and skinned near the back fence. The fur on his torso and upper legs had been cut off in knife-straight lines.
“It’s perfectly square,” said Gragg. “It looks like something was stuck in the side of the animal which could have been a knife or a shot to put the dog to sleep. It looked very professional.”
The couple took the dog to the vet who confirmed the injuries were “clearly” caused by a human. Gragg said he contacted the Clark County Sheriff’s office, but said deputies initially refused to investigate because the victim wasn’t human.
That changed on Tuesday when the Sheriff’s Office admitted they should have responded that day as animal cruelty is a crime and it’s law enforcement’s responsibility to investigate.…
According to reports, police responded to a call about a suicidal woman who had “caught herself on fire.”
When they got to the scene they found the 34-year-old woman very late into her pregnancy suffering from significant burns.
The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition and gave birth to a baby boy. A little over two hours later, the baby died.
According to a King County Medical Examiner’s Office report, the boy died from prenatal asphyxia due to maternal thermal burns.
Despite hiss manner of death was listed as homicide, Kent police have not yet charged the woman with a crime.
“It is early on the investigation, and it is not quite clear if any charges will be brought against the woman,” said police spokeswoman Melanie Robinson.…
For those of you who may have missed the original story, a mountain biker found the a dog hanged from a tree on March 21. It was later determined that the dog had been “aggressively sexually violated” while restrained, and had died of asphyxiation.
“This is a truly horrific situation in all aspects,” the humane society’s Washington director, Dan Paul, said at the time. “To think about the suffering this dog experienced in her final moments, as well as knowing there’s an individual or individuals in our state who would perpetrate this type of abuse, is sickening. We are hopeful this reward will bring someone forward with information about this despicable crime.”
With a reward of $25,000 reward being offered to apprehend the person responsible, along with a spot on Washington’s Most Wanted, police where able to identify Evans as a suspect.
Turns out the dog was a 3-year-old pit bull named “Diamond” who was an emotional support animal for an 8-year-old boy.…
Lyne was last seen on Friday as she left to attend the Seattle Mariners opening game with 37-year-old John Charlton, a man she met online.
Her ex-husband reported her missing the following morning when he arrived at her home to drop off their three daughters – ranging in age from about 8 to 12 – and found she and her car were missing, although her purse and cell phone were inside the home.
Friends and family immediately began searching for Lyne while police were able to identify Charlton as the man she went on a date with the night before.
“We used some forensic evidence in dealing with telephone calls and cell towers and the usual investigative shoe leather that the homicide detectives in tracking down their leads on a regular basis. By utilizing those, we were led to a suspect early on,” said Seattle Police Assistant Chief Robert Merner.…
According to a Humane Society press release, the biker discovered the dog hanging from a tree on the Department of Natural Resources’ property. The dog had been asphyxiated by being hanged from a branch with her feet barely touching the ground. Further evidence showed she was severely sexually assaulted while being restrained.
The Humane Society is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever raped and killed the dog. This reward is double the usual amount offered by the organization because one of their board members chipped in some of their own money.
“This is a truly horrific situation in all aspects,” said the humane society’s Washington director, Dan Paul. “To think about the suffering this dog experienced in her final moments, as well as knowing there’s an individual or individuals in our state who would perpetrate this type of abuse, is sickening.…
Early Sunday morning, an unidentified man walked into a 7-11 wearing a mask and wielding a hatchet. He reportedly said nothing to the clerk behind the counter or the customers in the store when he began swinging his weapon.
“What everybody says is that he didn’t say anything. He just walked in the store, had the hatchet, and started attacking people,” King County PIO Cindi West said.
The man first swung the hatchet at a customer before going behind the counter and attacking a 58-year-old convenience store employee. What the attacker probably did not expect was that one of the customers in the store is a regular, and he has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
The 60-year-old man, who comes to the store every morning to get coffee and talk with the employees, pulled out a handgun and shot the man as he was attacking the employee.…
The man was with his girlfriend at a residence where they were each taking pictures of themselves holding the gun.
The girlfriend said that they had done this several times throughout the day and that the dead man had repeatedly unloaded and loaded the gun.
However, the last time the man posed with the gun he was unaware he had left a bullet in the chamber. He ended up with a new hole to his head that severely hindered his ability to be alive anymore, and the gene pool got another drop of chlorine.
Skagit County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Patrol Chad Clark said no charges will be filed at this time and that the death is being investigated as accidental.
Not surprisingly, this is not the first person we’ve reported on who fatally shot themselves while taking selfies with a gun.
Last year, 19-year-old Deleon Smith accidentally shot himself in the throat while taking selfies with a gun.…
Nelson and the girl had been dating since September of last year until the girl’s mother found out about the relationship and stopped it.
The two continued to see each other secretly, until earlier this month when the girl told Nelson she didn’t want to lie to her parents anymore and broke up with him.
This did not sit well with Nelson, so he allegedly vandalized his ex-girlfriend’s car in the school parking lot. When that didn’t win her over, he posted pictures of him having sex with the girl on social media.
Then, on Monday morning, police say Nelson went to the girl’s home and confronted the girl’s mother, 46-year-old Teresa Ryan, as she pulled up to the home with her 5-year-old daughter in the backseat.
An argument ensued, and Nelson fatally shot Ryan once in the chest and twice in the back before fleeing the scene on foot.…
MILTON, WA – Police have arrested 29-year-old Michael Dufour after he allegedly left his 15-month-old daughter in a car in subfreezing temperatures long enough for her to suffer frostbite and hypothermia. Warning, this story contains a lot of diarrhea.
Police and medics were called to Dufour’s home after receiving a report that he had left his daughter alone in a car for an unknown amount of time overnight.
When medics arrived, they found the naked girl inside the car with two windows down in 26 degree weather. When police arrived, they found Dufour had already taken the girl out of the car and was carrying her into the house.
Dufour was naked from the waist down and had diarrhea running down his legs and carrying the girl in a diarrhea covered comforter. Inside the home police would find garbage everywhere and, of course, more diarrhea.
Medics noted the girl was red and lethargic and took her to the hospital where she was treated for hypothermia and minor frostbite.
When police asked Dufour why he was covered in his own shit and why his daughter was being turned into a popsicle, he said it was the girl’s mother’s fault.…
Campbell was closing up her coffee stand, Saints and Sinners, when a broke out in the coffee kiosk.
The exact reason for the explosion is still under investigation, but investigators believe a propane tank and a portable heater were involved.
The resulting flames engulfed the stand and a car parked beside it, trapping Campbell inside. She managed to get out of the flames and walk to the arriving ambulance, but not before suffering extensive burns to 80 percent of her body.
After being rushed to the hospital, Campbell was placed in a medically-induced coma. According to her friends, things were looking optimistic.
“There was hope,” said Ben Scott. “The nurses were optimistic. Her boyfriend said she looked better than she had since the accident happened. We were all making plans,” he said.
That was until Monday afternoon when her condition took a turn for the worse and she died from her injuries. …
ROCKVILLE, MD — Police say when 33-year-old Gabriel Omogbo wasn’t preaching at the Celestial Church of Christ in Riverdale, he worked as a security officer and had a nasty hobby that involved raping and robbing D.C. prostitutes.
According to authorities, Omogbo arranged meetings with several escorts on Backpage.com. The first two met him at a Best Western in Rockville where Omogbo allegedly raped and robbed them.
The third attack happened in a Rockville Radisson Hotel and the one that put a stop to his alleged extracurricular activities.
In that attack, the woman said she had arranged to meet Omogbo at the hotel via Backpage. After having consensual sex, she says Omogbo emerged from the bathroom holding a knife. “You are going to die today,” he reportedly informed the woman while ordering her to strip naked.
He then beat the woman and cut her arms, legs and hands before stealing her iPad, pre-paid T-Mobile cell phone and $300. Before he left the hotel room, Omogbo told the woman to wash up, and gave her some water.…
Abel was reportedly taken from her home sometime Monday by three teens — a 14-year-old girl, 15-year-old boy and 16-year-old boy — and forced into the trunk of her own car.
At around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday and hundreds of miles later, the teens stopped at a Walmart in Wood Village, Oregon and went inside a store. This is about the time Abel decided she’d had about enough of this shit, and took the opportunity to pop the car’s trunk.
After running inside the Walmart looking for help, a Walmart employee called police. When officers arrived, they spotted the three teens across the street at a gas station and took them into custody.
They are now in an Oregon juvenile detention facility facing charges of kidnapping, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, and reckless endangerment.
Despite her ordeal, Abel was unharmed and returned home after being checked out by doctors.…
SEATTLE, WA – Alicia Goemaat is facing murder charges after police say she kicked her boyfriend’s 17-month-old son to death.
According to reports, 26-year-old Goemaat was watching her toddler son along with Drue Lehto, the 17-month-old son of her boyfriend.
The toddlers got into an argument over a toy and, according to Goemaat’s own admission, she kicked Drue in the stomach. After the boy fell down, she kicked him again, causing fatal abdominal injuries.
One week before Drue was kicked to death, he was taken to Seattle Children’s Hospital to treat “bruises and scratches that did not appear to be normal for a toddler.”
According to the police report, Goemaat is a drug addict who would often scream at Drue. Friends of the couple also said Goematt “would become extremely agitated when the victim cried and would physically punish him by spanking him or ‘flicking’ him on his body when he cried.”
Goemaat’s ex-boyfriend said he was shocked at the news, stating he never saw Goemaat act aggressive towards his kids.…
WASHINGTON, DC – Robert Smith Sr. has been charged with first-degree murder after police say he he squeezed his 5-week-old son so hard that he fractured the infant’s vertebrae and ribs.
According to the court documents, the infant’s mother called 911 when she went to check on the baby and found he was not breathing.
The baby would be pronounced dead at the hospital where the medical examiner would find the infant had suffered rib fractures, both recent and old; a fractured vertebra; a fractured wrist; and a scabbed abrasion on the back of his head.
Smith would admit to detectives that on the day of his son’s death, he woke up about 7:30?a.m. that morning to his son crying. Smith went to check on him and squeezed him “like you squeeze a roll of toothpaste” until he heard a cracking sound. The boy went limp and groggy, so he placed him back in his sleeper.
Smith admitted that this squeezing technique was one he had employed on previous occasions when his son would cry or become fussy – about three or four times a day in the days leading up to his death.…
PORT TOWNSEND, WA – A 13-year-old boy has been charged with three counts of first-degree rape after police say he sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl on a school bus.
Jefferson County Under Sheriff Joe Nole said they began their investigation back in March after receiving a call from a doctor’s office regarding the possible rape of a 7-year-old.
The victim’s aunt, her legal guardian, had taken the girl to the doctor’s office after she came home from school bleeding, and finally told her aunt what the boy had been doing to her on the school bus. While exact dates of the assaults are not known, the resulting investigation determined the girl and the boy rode the bus together from Sept. 3, 2014 to Feb. 25, 2015.
In April, the information the sheriff’s department had gathered had them recommending the boy be charged with child rape in the first degree, child molestation in the first degree, and indecent liberties.
The boy was expelled from Chimacum Middle School and was released to his family pending his trial.…
