DARLINGTON, WI – Jaren Kuester, a 31-year-old man with a history of mental problems, has been arrested and charged with beating three elderly people to death with a fireplace poker.
According to reports, Kuester was arrested after threatening staff members at a Waukesha County animal shelter. Staff there said Kuester demanded that the dead dog he’d dropped off a few weeks earlier be returned to him alive. He told them they would pay with their lives when they did not oblige.
After making bail, he got in his vehicle and started driving, feeling as if his life was “crashing and burning” around him. After driving three counties away, he felt as if he was being followed, so he abandoned his vehicle, stripped off his clothes, and ran into the woods.
He ended up getting cold and broke into the farmhouse of Gary Thoreson, 70, and Chloe Thoreson, 66, who were not at home. After getting clothes, food, and searching for valuables, Kuester went to sleep on a bedroom floor. Sometime after, 70-year-old Dean Thoreson, Gary’s brother, arrived and entered the home.…Continue Reading
MILWAUKEE — Cell phone video was posted on Youtube that showed Jason Scales body slamming a DMV security guard after he was asked to leave the building, while other patrons cheered him on.
The 35-year-old man had been asked to leave the north side DMV after he refused to turn down the music on his cell phone. Scales got mad and refused to leave, so a security guard stepped in to escort Scales out of the building.
As you can see in the video below, the guard has some trouble getting Scales to leave, and ends up getting body slammed to the ground while the crowd laughed and cheered for Scales. After getting off the ground, the guard pulled his gun on Scales as he finally left the building.
Milwaukee police say the man was eventually arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, but no felony assault charges.
Law enforcement expert Brian Dorow said that while the confrontation would have been challenging for an experienced officer to control, guards or officers should not touch an unruly person if they are not posing an eminent threat.…Continue Reading
Walworth, WI - On Wednesday, 14-month-old Dax Borchardt was mauled to death by his babysitter’s two pit bulls.
Police received a call from Borchardt’s babysitter, 30-year-old Susan Iwicki, stating she and the boy were being attacked by her two pit bulls.
Borchardt was taken to Mercy-Walworth Medical Center before being airlifted to the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin where he died from critical injuries at about 3:30pm.
Iwicki was also injured in the attack, but as of Thursday morning, her condition is unknown. The two dogs were later euthanized by a local veterinarian.
No word on if charges will be filed, but Walworth County Sheriff’s Office Captain Dana Nigbor said that ”unless something drastically changes,” this will not be a criminal case.
Borchardt’s father expressed his anger on his Facebook page, stating “these pitbulls was not abused, mistreated, or harmed in ANY way” and that he “will do everything in my power to make sure this breed is bred out of existence.”
I feel bad for the guy. Not only losing a son, but losing him in such a violent way.…Continue Reading
Deputies responded to the club at about 9:30 Thursday night for a call about a fight. Upon their arrival, they learned that two of the dancers, ages 19 and 23, had gotten into a cat fight on stage over a dollar bill.
Seems a patron had attempted to give the bill to one of the dancers, but the other had a shit fit because she felt that she had earned that dollar.
Police say both women fell to the floor, punching and slapping each other. Giggity? It has also been reported that hair was pulled. Which, in reality, deserves a fork to the neck.
The fight was eventually broken up by customers and other dancers. I say ‘eventually’ because you know they let that shit roll for a minute.
Neither of the women required immediate medical attention, though one of them is preggers, and both were cited for disorderly conduct, which carries a $250 fine.…Continue Reading
Milwaukee, WI – Someone was in the right place at the right time on Friday when they captured a brawl between a police officer and a clown outside Milwaukee City Hall.
Police say the clown is a known activist who can often be seen outside government buildings. But on Friday, police were getting calls that the clown was chasing cars with a squirt gun. Luckily, someone just happened to be there filming as a responding officer approached the clown.
“The officer reached for him, and the next thing you know, they’re on the ground, tussling and rolling around. The officer started punching him, and then another officer showed up, and it looked like they were about to arrest him. It was pretty funny,” the witness said. “The clown was resisting, so the cop needed to do what he needed to do to make sure he was safe.”
“What’s going through my head is a cop beating up a clown. How can I not capture this video and show it to all my friends?” the witness said.…Continue Reading
Last week the body of 78-year-old Barbara Olsen was discovered lying in a pool of blood inside her garage. At the time police were calling the death “particularly violent” and that they had two juveniles in custody; her great grandson and his friend. Now that the criminal complaint has been released, the disturbing details of what happened to Olsen have been revealed.
According to 13-year-old Nathan Paape’s admission, he and 13-year-old Antonio Barbeau went to the home of Antonio’s great mother to kill her and steal some money. They got a ride to her home from Nathan’s mother, concealing a hammer and hatchet they brought along with them. After entering Olsen’s home through an unlocked side door attached to the garage, they encountered Olsen.
Olsen told Antonio that she was calling his mother, but when she turned around to do so, Antonio struck her in the back of the head with the blunt end of the hatchet.…Continue Reading
STURGEON BAY, WI -- An Illinois man has been charged with choking his pregnant ex-girlfriend to death, then having sex with her dead body.
Last month, 35-year-old Brian Cooper was staying with 22-year-old Alisha Bromfield, who was 6½ months pregnant with another man’s baby, at the Door County resort in Wisconsin. They were at the hotel to attend the wedding of Bromfield’s sister.
After the wedding, the two got into an argument over the fact that Bromfield wanted to end their relationship. Bromfield fell asleep, and Cooper started drinking and becoming increasingly angry over the breakup and how cold and indifferent he felt Bromfield was acting.
According to the criminal complaint, Cooper said he “didn’t want to go home single,” so he decided to stay in Wisconsin as a murdering, corpse raper.
Prosecutors say that at 2 or 3 in the morning, after watching Bromfield sleep for about two and a half hours, Cooper got on top of Bromfield and used his bare hands to choke her. Court papers revealed Bromfield pleaded for her life and the life of her unborn child.…Continue Reading
FITCHBURG, WI – More details have been released regarding the Wisconsin mother who repeatedly stabbed her 6-year-old daughter with a steak knife while she slept.
Early Monday morning, 30-year-old Tasha Harmon went to her neighbor’s apartment suffering from self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck and chest. She told the neighbors she had just stabbed her 6-year-old daughter before stabbing herself.
When the neighbors entered Harmon’s apartment, they found her daughter covered in blood, lying on her bed. She was suffering from several stab wounds inflicted by her mother, who had used a 7-inch steak knife that was found nearby. The girl was still alive and rushed to the hospital with life-threatening stab wounds to the chest and back as well as a punctured lung. According to reports, the girl told police, “Mommy tried to kill me.”
Harmon was transported to the hospital in serious but stable condition before being released on Thursday and placed in jail. She has been charged with attempted first degree intentional homicide. Her daughter was listed in critical condition, but police say she is expected to recover.…Continue Reading
Milwaukee, WI – Police have arrested a 13-year-old girl who they say was behind the wheel of the stolen car that struck and killed a bicyclist earlier this month. If you are to believe some of the witness statements, this girl joins the gang of the more callous, apathetic juveniles we have featured on this site in the past.
The girl had been out with friends stealing cars throughout the night when, at around 6:35 a.m, she and another girl where in a stolen Dodge Neon drag racing with two males in a stolen Chrysler minivan. The girl ended up hitting and killing 57-year-old Ronald Forbes, who had been riding his bicycle to work as he did every day.
Witnesses say that after the crash, the two girls got of the Neon and jumped into the minivan with the two boys before fleeing the scene. Using fingerprints obtained from the Neon and the minivan later found abandoned, they were able to track down the 13-year-old driver who hit Forbes. She was with other girls in yet another stolen car.…Continue Reading
FITCHBURG, WI – We just had a story yesterday involving a man using a vehicle to run down a woman during a domestic dispute, and now we have a man in Wisconsin in jail on murder charges after using his vehicle to run down his ex-girlfriend and his 2-year-old son.
Police said 30-year-old Jesus Castillo-Dimas and his 20-year-old girlfriend had recently ended their long-term relationship. I don’t think Jesus was on board with this breakup because when he saw his ex with their 2-year-old son, Yandel Castillo, riding in a vehicle driven by 30-year-old Miguel Menendez-Ruvalcaba, he began following them.
His ex told police that she and Miguel had lunch and he was taking her and her son home when she noticed Jesus was following them. After asking Miguel to pull into a parking lot close to her residence, Jesus pulled up beside them and confronted his ex and asked if she was in a relationship with Miguel. No one got out of their vehicles until Jesus began driving away stating, “You’ll see what is going to happen to you and your child.”
Thinking he was leaving, the woman and her son got out of Miguel’s car and began walking away.…Continue Reading
West Allis, WI - While possibly under the impression that he wasn’t important to anyone, David Carter, 41, reportedly used a 9mm handgun to take his own life in his house in a Milwaukee suburb in 2007.
More than four years later, on January 23, 2012, his ‘skeletonized’ remains would be found by a real estate worker from the Milwaukee County treasurer’s office and a locksmith who arrived to inspect the home after it had been awarded to the county in a tax foreclosure.
In the years since his suicide, Carter reportedly never paid a bill, retrieved his mail, mowed the lawn, or cleared snow. His mail undoubtedly included the expected late payment and cancellation notices. These, of course, went unanswered.
According to news reports, near the time of his death, Carter quit his job as a nuisance control officer for the City of Milwaukee and told co-workers that he planned to ‘move to New Mexico.’ Never having been to New Mexico, his coworkers were unaware that the phrase “I am moving to New Mexico” is a completely reasonable euphemism for “I am going to shoot myself in the head and allow my bloodied and lifeless corpse to rot in stench and darkness.” It’s an easy mistake to make.…Continue Reading
St. Croix County, WI - Two sisters in Wisconsin have been charged after a man accused them of sexually assaulting him with pliers and forcing him to drink their urine. Does this sound odd to you? If not, it means that you are ideally suited to sort this one out.
Court documents say that an 18-year-old male was at a Wisconsin residence with Valerie M. Bartkey, 24, and Amanda L. Johnson, 17. Whatever fun they were having reportedly ended when the sisters – who had reportedly imbibed some weed – began punching and kicking him, and then – gasp – putting one of the man’s shoes in the toilet and soaking the other in a sink.
According to court records, the man said the sister’s funfest continued when they later brought him a cup of liquid claiming that was lemonade and ‘forced’ him to drink it. It reportedly turned out to be a cup of the sisters’ urine.
Police say that the man went on to say that the sisters then ‘forced him to undress,’ with the intent of Bartkey having sex with him.…Continue Reading
Madison, WI — Allow me to introduce Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop. No, I’m not drunk, that’s his real name. He was arrested Thursday on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and probation violation.
According to the incident report, residents near a local park called police because of all the drinkin’ and druggin’ going on in the area. Responding officers immediately recognized Zopittybop-Bop-Bop from a past incident in which he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, a handgun, so they got a little nervous when he stuck his hands in his pockets. That, of course, led to a search of his person and property.
Said search revealed marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a knife. Zopittybop-Bop-Bop was quickly taken into custody on the aforementioned charges. No mention of a bail/bond amount.
The incident report also mentions that while enroute to the cop shop, 30-year-old Zopittybop-Bop-Bop told officers that he would eventually “Get even with them.”
Now, about that awesome name. Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop used to be known as Jeffrey Drew Wilschke. According to his Facebook profile, he had his name legally changed in late November.…Continue Reading
Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee has joined Las Vegas as the only two U.S. cities who have a website featuring the real pictures of their unidentified dead.
They hope this will help them solve some of their cold cases instead of just relying on sketches and those creepy clay models that leave you standing in the furthest depths of uncanny valley.
If the site of dead adults, infants and fetuses in varying states of decay are your thing, then head on over to the Milwaukee medical examiner’s unidentified persons site and take a gander. For those of you with weak stomachs, let me warn you as these are the real deal and some of it is fascinasty™.
But no worries if you accidentally click the link, as your desktop won’t immediately be flooded with images of bloated corpses. Forensic investigator Michael Simley is aware of the sensitive nature of the photographs and places more than enough warnings on the site before you actually get to the meat.
Smiley is also aware of how desperate this seems, but says that in the 17 cases featured, they have simply run out of options.…Continue Reading
Grand Chute, WI — An unidentified Cheesehead was taken into custody Sunday after police say the inebriated woman grew angry and attacked her 11-year-old daughter because the Packers lost their first game of the season. To the *snortgiggle* Chiefs.
About five hours after the devastating loss, police were called to the Extended Stay Hotel where the woman was presumably staying with her husband and child. After making contact with the family, police learned the woman had been downing beer and vodka throughout the game.
According to the criminal complaint, the girl reportedly stepped forward and told police that while the Packers were losing, her mother grabbed her hair and choked her. The girl went on to say that after the Packers lost, her mother choked her again with enough force that she couldn’t breathe, asking her, “Do you want to die?” Red marks and scratches were apparently visible on the child’s neck.
The woman’s husband told police the woman also threw her dinner on the floor, broke a lamp and attempted to punch him in the face because she was upset about the game.…Continue Reading
Robert Markwardt, 18, and his 15-year-old girlfriend broke up after he found out she had cheated on him with 19-year-old Jordan Lass. But Markwardt couldn’t let things go, unable to handle the thought of Lass putting his beef in his ex-jailbait’s taco.
Fueled by stupidity and jealousy, Markwardt told multiple people he was going to beat Lass’ ass with a samurai sword. He followed through with this threat after finding out Lass had spent the night with his ex and was currently at her house.
Equipped with his sword, Markwardt walked into his ex’s house uninvited then went upstairs to her room where he found his rival sleeping in her bed. Ever the pussy, Markwardt took advantage of the situation and proceeded to whack Lass with the sword multiple times. Luckily Lass woke up during the first set of blows so the majority of his injuries were to the arm he held up to block the ones that followed.…Continue Reading
Admittedly, some of the details are vague as the victim isn’t talking to the press, but what is being reported is that an unidentified 18-year-old met 21-year-old Rebecca Chandler online and travelled by bus from Arizona to Milwaukee in order to meet her in person.
Once at the Chandler’s apartment, the teen told police he spent two days tied up while getting cut, slashed and stabbed. After escaping and alerting authorities, he was taken to the hospital where doctor’s say he had more than 300 wounds covering his body.
Chandler was arrested at the apartment where police say they found a pool of blood and blood stains on the banisters and walls. They also discovered a number of occult related items, including one of my personal favorites, The Necromantic Ritual Book.
I found the golem making operations quite useful and the section titled “Necrophilia in the Necromantic Rite” ensured I never had to read my kids another bedtime story.…Continue Reading
Oshkosh, WI – I know that in the grand scheme of things, VeiJzahn Knight losing her title of Miss Oshkosh after getting caught shoplifting from Walmart isn’t that big of a deal, but I’m in a bad mood this Monday morning and I’m writing about it anyway.
Miss Oshkosh Scholarship Pageant is a beauty pageant that began back in 1964. Any lucky lady crowned Miss Oshkosh receives a cash scholarship, totaling around $9000 dollars for 2012, with various different gifts from over twenty other sponsors. I could be wrong about this, but from the looks of the contestants over the last few years, this pageant has been a primarily white affair.
But this year, 19-year-old VeiJzahn Knight was crowned Miss Oshkosh and became the first black woman ever given the title in the pageant’s 47 year history. Adding to that proud distinction, Knight has now become the first woman in the pageant’s history to have their title stripped from them.
It’s not like pageant officials didn’t have a valid reason.…Continue Reading
Stephanie Bailey, 28, accompanied her 7-year-old daughter on a Wayne Elementary School trip to Pioneer Village, acting as a parent chaperone.
At some point Bailey went to the restroom, deciding she needed a little help getting through all the fiddling and butter churning. One of the other parents grew concerned when Bailey never returned and went to check on her.
Inside the bathroom she would find Bailey passed out on the restroom floor next to some hypodermic needles. At first she thought Bailey was diabetic, but quickly realized that wasn’t the case when she noticed a glass pipe next to Bailey’s lost dignity. Teachers administered first aid and called 911.
By time police arrived, Bailey had already come to. She would consent to a search and police would find she’d come to Pioneer Village prepared, possessing four small baggies of heroin, two pills, a metal spoon, a clear glass pipe, several alcohol prep pads, several hypodermic needles, rubber tubing, two plastic containers of sterile water, and a lighter.…Continue Reading
Annette Morales-Rodriguez, 33, called 911 saying she’d just given birth to a baby in her living room and that the baby wasn’t breathing. When officers arrived they found the full-term baby boy dead. Both Rodriguez and her dead son were taken to the hospital.
An autopsy was performed on the baby on Friday, the deputy medical examiner revealing the baby had not been born naturally as the uterus was still attached to the baby as were parts of ovaries. His findings were that the infant had been cut out by force and died because his mother had died.
Since Rodriguez was very much alive, having walked out of the hospital after refusing to be examined, police brought her back for a medical exam, which would show she’d not given birth, and then to the police station for an interview. It’s then they would learn the horrifying, sickening truth about the dead baby and the fate of the baby’s real mother.…Continue Reading
