Joseph ThoresenDEER RIVER, MN – Police have arrested 35-year-old Joseph Thoresen after he decapitated a 20-year-old man accused of raping his girlfriend.

According to reports, Thoresen was understandably upset to learn that his friend, David Haiman, had allegedly raped his girlfriend in the bedroom of their apartment.

The couple invited Haiman over and confronted him about the rape. A punishment for Haiman was agreed upon, one that would consist of Haiman being tied up and beaten.

After he was secured, Thoresen’s girlfriend broke Haiman’s nose and kicked him in the stomach. Thoresen then repeatedly punched Haiman while telling him he shouldn’t have raped his girl.

Afterwards, the three got into Haiman’s car and drove around meeting friends while smoking weed and meth. However, Thoresen was still pissed about the rape and continually called Haiman a piece of shit and his girlfriend a slut.

Thoresen eventually pulled Haiman’s car over, pretending that it had some kind of mechanical issue. After telling Haiman to check the oil, Thoresen hit him over the head with a baseball bat.…

David Daniel McCraryPORTLAND, OR – A mother of two young children shot and killed a man after she returned home Sunday night and found him inside her 10-year-old daughter’s bedroom.

Police say 33-year-old Tara-Alexis Ford returned home with her daughter, aged 10, and five-year-old son at around 1:20 a.m. Sunday morning. Inside her daughter’s bedroom, Ford would encounter 59-year-old David McCrary who had entered the home through the back bedroom ‘s window.

After a brief confrontation, Ford used a personal handgun to shoot McCrary one time. Ford then called 911 to report she had fatally shot a home intruder. Responding officers would find McCrary dead in the bedroom.

Police have confirmed that McCrary had no connection with Ford or her family, but that he did suffer from mental illness. No charges have been filed against Ford, who is cooperating with investigators, but detectives are still determining if the shooting was self-defense.

As for why McCrary was in the home to begin with, we may never know for sure. However, a neighbor said that the home had been vacant for a while before Ford moved in and that squatters would often stay inside the home.…

Emile WeaverZANESVILLE, OH – A judge threw two books at 21-year-old Emile Weaver, sentencing her to life behind bars without possibility of parole after she was found guilty of murdering her newborn daughter.

On April 22, 2015, Weaver gave birth to a baby girl in a bathroom at the Delta Gamma Theta sorority at Muskingum University. Weaver put the infant in a trash bag and left her outside where the newborn would die of asphyxiation.

After the body was found by Weaver’s fellow sorority sisters, Weaver was arrested and later charged with aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. Instead of owning up to what she did, Weaver would plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

During her trial, prosecutors would show that Weaver never had any intention of keeping the baby. They told the jurors that Weaver drank alcohol, smoked marijuana and played sports during her pregnancy.

Even more damning was the fact that hours after she gave birth, but before the baby’s body was found, she sent a text to the boy she believed to be the father that read: “No more baby,” and “taken care of.”

Weaver’s defense was that she was in denial about the pregnancy and thought her daughter was dead when she put her in the trash.…

sharpitFRESNO, CA -A 3-day-old baby was mauled to death by two family dogs after being left unattended on a couch.

According to reports, the girl’s 30-year-old mother left the baby girl on a couch for only a few seconds while she went to use the bathroom.

It was at this time that the two dogs, believed to be Shar Pei-pit bull mixes, came into the home through an open door and attacked the baby. The infant was rushed to the Community Regional Medical Center where she was later died.

The woman told police the dogs belonged to her brother and that she thought they were chained up outside when she left the door open because it was hot. She also informed police that one of the dogs is aggressive.

Sgt. Dan Macias said that at this point the baby’s death seemed like an unfortunate accident, but that the investigation is ongoing and that charges haven’t been ruled out.

The dogs are currently in the custody of the Central California Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals where they will both be euthanized.…

Andrew GoodenoughNEW WINDSOR, NY – Police have arrested 35-year-old Andrew Goodenough after he used a box-cutter to slit a stranger’s throat in a New York grocery store.

The incident happened inside a Shoprite on Saturday morning when Goodenough walked behind a man he did not know and slit the man’s throat in the produce aisle.

Goodenough dropped the knife then calmly walked to another part of the store, leaving 35-year-old Michael Kohus to bleed to death on the floor. There were around 250 people in the store at the time, so Kohus was discovered within minutes after being attacked.

Unfortunately, there wasn’t anything anyone could do and Kohus was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital. Police quickly sealed off the store as they searched for a suspect and screened customers before letting them leave.

Using the store’s surveillance cameras, police were able to identify Goodenough as their suspect and take him into custody as he tried blending in with other shoppers. Goodenough is now being held without bail at Orange County Jail, facing a second-degree murder charge.…

Clearwater police say 23-year-old Roseanna Kiser was a guest at the Sheraton Sand Key Hotel who was spending time at the hotel’s pool Monday evening. While drinking from a bottle of vodka in the pool, Kiser became angry with several young children who were also in the pool.

When a 7-year-old boy Kiser didn’t know splashed water near, she responded by pouring some of her vodka directly into the boy’s eyes and face. She then grabbed him around the chest and pushed him away from her.

Police were called to the hotel and found Kiser inside her hotel room. When they tried escorting her off of the premises she began kicking and elbowing the arresting officers in the head, neck, and chest. She also managed to repeatedly kick one cop in the groin with the heel of her foot.

Lottie BelkVIRGINIA BEACH, VA – A woman celebrating her birthday has died after being stabbed in the chest by a beach umbrella that had been caught in the wind.

According to police, 56-year-old Lottie Belk was at the beach celebrating her upcoming birthday and wedding anniversary when a beach umbrella got caught in a strong gust of wind and struck her in the chest.

Colin ScottYELLOWSTONE – A 23-year-old man died after he wandered hundreds of yards off a designated boardwalk at Yellowstone and fell into a hot spring at the Norris Geyser Basin.

On Tuesday, Colin Scott and his sister hiked approximately 225 yards off the designated boardwalk near Pork Chop Geyser when Scott slipped and fell into a thermal geyser.

His sister alerted rangers who returned to the scene, which was in an area so remote that the park airplane and helicopter had trouble finding it, but there wasn’t much they could do.

Because of the high temperatures, all that could be recovered were some of Scott’s personal effects that were near the spot he fell in. By Wednesday, rangers determined there were no longer any remains of Scott left to recover and abandoned the search.

The spot where Scott fell in is one of the hottest and most volatile areas of Yellowstone, where the water that flows beneath a thin rock crust is 400 degrees or more.

“We extend our sympathy to the Scott family,” said Superintendent Dan Wenk.…
