JOHNSON COUNTY, MO – Two men are behind bars after they allegedly robbed a woman, bound her, then set her on fire after pouring gasoline on her.

According to court documents, 22-year-old Vincent Rist and 24-year-old Antonio Bowen broke into a home on Sunday occupied by a 20-year-old woman.

They bound her hands and mouth and grabbed various items, including a shotgun. One of the men hit her in the head with a lamp then poured gasoline on her.

The pair threatened to set her on fire if she did not give them the combination to a gun safe in the home.

When she did not or could not comply with their demand, Rist allegedly ignited the gasoline and told her to burn with the house.

Surprisingly, the woman managed to escape and call for help. She was taken to the burn unit at Research Medical Center suffering from first-, second- and third-degree burns over 30 percent of her body.

Johnson County Sheriff Scott Munsterman confirmed the house was not so lucky and is a complete loss after the fire.…

KISSIMMEE, FL – A man is facing attempted murder charges after he admitted to trying to set several sex offenders on fire at a Florida motel.

According to police, 50-year-old Jorge Porto-Sierra arrived at the Friendly Village Inn with a plan to light up one of the rooms where four men were staying — two of which are registered sex offenders.

Witnesses said Porto-Sierra rammed the men’s car and poured gas on it while making several threats.

“I’m going to kill you, child molester,” he was reportedly screaming while throwing gasoline on the door of the men’s room. He also broke out the front window and poured gas into the men’s room.

When police arrived, Porto-Sierra had not set the gasoline on fire and he was taken into custody.

When questioned, Porto-Sierra admitted that he showed up at the motel to “barbecue all the child molesters on fire and kill them.”

Asked why he didn’t carry out his plan, Porto-Sierra simply replied: “You got here too soon.”

Porto-Sierra was arrested and has been charged with four counts of attempted premeditated murder.…

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Police have charged a woman with attempted murder after they say she intentionally set her ex-boyfriend on fire on Easter Sunday.

According to reports, 38-year-old Shivon Perez asked her ex-boyfriend Bradley Atkins over to her apartment to help her fix a pipe that was leaking under her bathroom sink.

The couple had only broken up the week before but were on amicable terms, according to Atkins. He thought he was at the apartment to fix the leak, eat dinner and watch a movie.

However, while he was under the sink working on the pipe, he noticed Perez standing over him while holding a container.

When he asked what was inside the container, Perez responded, “It’s gasoline, you son of a bitch,” before dousing him with charcoal fluid.

“You are going to pay,” Perez reportedly said before setting Atkins on fire.

As Atkins began taking off his burning clothes, he noticed Perez was locking the front door while spraying the charcoal fluid on the living room floor.…

POLK COUNTY, FL – A man accused of molesting a girl under the age of 12 has now been accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill her and her family so they could not testify against him at his upcoming trial.

Back in February 2013, 26-year-old Richard Palmer was accused of molesting a young girl.

According to the victim, who was under the age of 12 at the time, said she woke up to find Palmer in her bed with his hands in her panties.

He was arrested but got out on bail to await his trial on child sex offenses. However, in September Palmer’s bail was revoked after he assaulted a police officer while resisting arrest.

Now sitting in jail, Palmer decided the best way out of his situation was to keep the girl from being able to testify against him.

Palmer asked a fellow inmate if he knew anyone who could “X Out” the child and two female witnesses, providing him with a hand-drawn layout of the family’s home.…

ALMERIA, SPAIN – Three people, including two children, were burned to death inside a cave after a teen set a fire at the opening of the cave and turned it into a chimney.

I normally don’t post horrible stories from around the globe, but this one out of Spain was too horrific and unique to not report on.

Here’s what I can gather from DailyMail’s incorrect details, as well as Google translating local reports of the incident.

In the mountains of the northern part of Almeria, there is a limestone cave that young people use as a hideout where young people often go to drink, smoke and listen to music. At around 8 p.m. Monday night, 21-year-old Alejandro P., a 17-year-old boy and two girls aged 14 and 12-years-old were inside the cave.

Another group of teens arrived and wanted to go inside the cave as well, but were denied entry. A 17-year-old with a history of setting fires was not happy about the rejection and set fire to a couch at the mouth of the cave to flush the others out.…

Martinsburg, WV — Molly Jo Delgado, 29, was charged Wednesday in connection with the deaths of her two young sons in January of this year.

Molly Jo reportedly confessed to setting fire to boys’ beds as they slept. She then walked out the front door of their mobile home and locked it from the outside, before moseying off to her parent’s home across the street.

Her husband, Justin Delgado Sr.,  who was asleep on the opposite side of the mobile home, was awakened by the smoke and attempted to get to the children’s bedroom. Unable to do so, Justin attempted to flee the trailer but found he was locked inside. He ended up screaming for help out of the kitchen window.

Molly Jo’s father, Drew McCombs, said he saw his daughter walking back to her trailer after she heard her husband yell that the trailer was on fire and he needed the key to get out.

McCombs and his wife, Brenda, entered the trailer in the hopes of rescuing the boys, but they, too, were unsuccessful.…

Veronica HarrisHOUSTON, TX – Veronica Harris and Christen Rogers have been arrested for dousing a 4-year-old girl in alcohol and lighting her on fire.

Harris said it had been 24 hours since the little girl was injured but she had been unable to get her medical attention because she didn’t have transportation. She also stated she should have called 911.

Investigators would learn how the girl was injured from the child herself. She told police that her aunt strapped her into a car seat for being bad. She said after she was strapped in, her aunt poured a bottle of alcohol all over her.

While still strapped into her seat and wearing only a diaper, Rodgers held a lighter to her stomach and set her on fire.

Harris told investigators that the alcohol was used to treat the girl’s mosquito bites while Rodgers denies lighting the girl on fire.…

Investigators were alerted to Hackman after his girlfriend admitted herself to the hospital seeking treatment for her injuries that included second and third degree burns to her lower stomach, genitals and inner thighs.

According to the woman, her injuries were caused by Hackman over the course of days. Aside from punching her repeatedly in the face and stomach and beating her several times with a belt, she says Hackman set her vagina on fire.

I, too, have been accused of setting vaginas on fire, but through pure animal sexuality — Hackman took a shortcut. The woman said that Hackman poured lighter fuel on her crotch and then lit her up. She said Hackman helped extinguish the resulting fire, but yelled at her for screaming and crying in pain.

Tatanysha HedmanRenton, WA — A woman accused of setting her husband on fire after learning he may have molested her 7-year-old daughter, reportedly told police she chose fire because shooting him was “too nice.”

According to police, Tatanysha Hedman set fire to 52-year-old Vincent Phillips with gasoline and a flick of her Bic, as he lay sleeping in their bed on July 17.

Phillips managed to extinguish the flames before driving to a nearby convenience store, where he screamed “I’m on fire!” Which, by that time, he was not. Oops, credibility GONE.

Store employees called for medical assistance, and when police arrived on scene, Phillips reportedly said, “My wife did it,” before passing out.

When questioned by police, Hedman, 40, admitted setting her husband on fire. She claimed he hurt his stepdaughter, and well, shooting him was just too nice.

She’s being held on charges of arson and assault — bail has been set at $500,000.

Miranda HerreraSAN ANTONIO, TX – A teen has been charged with murder and attempted murder for her involvement in a December fire that killed her brother and seriously injured her father.

Back in December, a fire broke out in the home of  19-year-old Miranda Herrera. Her autistic brother, 22-year-old David Herrera Jr., died in the fire. Her father, 49-year-old David Herrera Sr., was hospitalized with serious injuries and remains in a facility that provides around-the-clock care.

Hours after the fire, Herrara was on Facebook posting about the fire: “Their was fire at my house my brother and my dad was in there i got out sadly my brother passed away on the way to the hosptle i love my brother so much and i miss him,” she wrote.

An investigation concluded the fire was an accident, possibly started by a Christmas tree. But that changed this past Tuesday when Herrera told a school staff member that 17-year-old Sari Rodriguez was telling people she was responsible for the house fire.

This piqued the interest of SAPD homicide detectives and they began an investigation into the claims.…

Cameo CrispiNaples, UT — A 31-year-old woman has been arrested after allegedly attempting to burn down her ex-boyfriend’s home by intentionally leaving a pound of bacon burning on a gas stove.

GUILTY! OFF WITH HER HEAD!

It all started when Cameo Crispi’s ex called police on March 14 to complain that he had received numerous texts and phone calls from her within the range of one hour, and he really wanted her to knock it the fuck off already. He also told police he didn’t want Crispi at his home. Crispi. Heh.

An officer was dispatched to the man’s home and found smoke pouring out the front door. Inside, an “impaired” Crispi.

When the officer stepped inside the man’s home, he noticed a wood stove left open with a fire burning inside and hot coals on the floor around the stove. And on the kitchen stove, claimed the officer, there was a cookie sheet with about a pound of bacon on it. Now, bear with me, people….. this part of the story is extremely difficult for me.…
