ST ALBANS, WV – Police have arrested a man after he huffed spray paint then beat his mother over the head with a spatula.

Glenn Allen Casdorph loves paint. His mother? Maybe not so much.

About 10:45 PM last Thursday, September 13th, police in St. Albans, West Virginia were dispatched to a residence in reference to a domestic incident involving injuries.

That’s cop-speak for “Glenn’s up to his old tricks again.”

When they arrived, officers found Glenn Allen Casdorph, 30, AKA “Casdorph the Destroyer,” AKA “Squirrel,” sitting on a bench in the front yard, brandishing a steel bar and besmeared with copious amounts of silver spray-paint.

It is a well-known fact to connoisseurs of spray paint that the silver and gold varietals have both the best bouquet and the best buzz. And Casdorph the Destroyer is no novice when it comes to huffing paint.

Having dealt with Casdorph multiple times in relation to his predilection for solvent abuse, his condition was probably not surprising to responding officers. And given his history of responding violently to anyone who attempted to curtail his illicit love of fluorocarbons, what they found in the house probably didn’t surprise them either.…

PHOENIX, AZ – Police have charged a man with murder after he stomped another man to death for allegedly following his 16-year-old daughter into a convenience store bathroom.

According to a police report, 40-year-old Melvin Harris had picked up his 16-year-old daughter and two of her friends after they had gotten off work.

On the way home they made a stop at a QuikTrip convenience store to get drinks.

While his daughter was in the store, Harris was approached by Leon Armstrong who asked for some money. Armstrong then entered the store after Harris gave him some change.

A short time later, Harris’ daughter came out of the store and said that a man had followed her into the restroom and had tried to get into the stall she was using. She notified employees and Harris informed a hired security guard at the store that if he didn’t handle the situation he was going to.

Armstrong was kicked out of the store and Harris’s daughter pointed him out as the man who was in the bathroom.…

MIAMI BEACH, FL – A man has been accused of beating his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter to death, and the possible reason behind the beating is mind-boggling.

Last Friday night, 27-year-old Dennys Llopiz called 911 claiming he found his girlfriend’s daughter, 3-year-old Skylar, slumped over in the shower after he put her there for soiling herself.

Possibly figuring that responding police may question the extensive bruising on Skylar’s body, Llopiz added that Skyler had fallen on some rocks when they went fishing the night before.

Skylar was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. When doctors conducted an autopsy, it was quickly revealed the girl had not had a simple fallen on some rocks.

Skylar had suffered a large laceration to her liver, her large intestine, bowels and diaphragm and right lung were all bruised, the air sacs in her lungs were ruptured, and three ribs were fractured.

Her cause of death was ruled blunt force trauma.

Since Llopiz was the only person with the girl at the time of her injuries and his explanation for the girl’s injuries were not meshing with the obvious ass-kicking she was delivered, he was charged with her murder.…

NEW ORLEANS, LA – A man has been jailed after he chased down a man who stole his wallet and then beat him to death.

It started out as a hot, sunny morning in New Orleans this past Friday, but it would soon turn stormy in a bit of subtle foreshadowing.

Edwin, whose last name was not released, and may not even be known, was out spare-changing.

As any pro will tell you, the ability to size people up quickly is an important part of effective begging. Some people are a soft touch, and you want to focus your efforts on them. Some people would just assume see you starve, and they’re not worth your time.

If you intend to mix a little larceny in with your bumming, reading people properly becomes even more important: a matter of life and death vs. mere efficiency.

Edwin was a little off Friday morning.

He approached a man wearing a Pantera shirt and asked for a dollar, then snatched the wallet out of the man’s back pocket and ran.…

POLK COUNTY, FL – Police have arrested a woman after they say she encouraged her boyfriend to beat her 2-year-old son on multiple occasions, beatings that led to the boy’s death.

Police were called to a home early Tuesday morning where they found 2-year-old Harley Don Hiatt Jr. unresponsive.

The boy had visible bruising on his arms and legs, injuries the boy’s mother, 26-year-old Shannon Short, said came from beatings doled out by her boyfriend, 26-year-old Christian Thompson.

Hiatt was taken to the hospital where it was determined he had bleeding on the brain, among other injuries. He was pronounced dead a few hours later.

An autopsy would reveal that aside from numerous bruises on his face that appeared to be caused by a belt, various scars and scratches, Hiatt also had a lacerated bowel that led to peritonitis and brain hemorrhaging.

When police questioned Short about these major injuries, she told them that Thompson was the one who had cared for the boy in the few days before his death.…

CLEVELAND COUNTY, NC – A jury has found a North Carolina man guilty of first-degree murder in the beating death of 3-year-old Jordyn Dumont.

All Billy Joseph McCullen can do is cry.

He cried the first time his live-in girlfriend’s daughter Jordyn called him “daddy”. Jordyn’s mother, Jaylene Dumont, described their relationship as “loving”.

He cried when he called 911 to report that Jordyn, whom he was supposed to be watching, had mysteriously vanished while he was taking a nap on August 15th, 2016. He even begged her to “please come out” as if he believed that she might just be hiding somewhere.

The call was logged at 3:39 PM; dark fell at 9:45 PM that day outside Gastonia, NC. Gaston County officials and dozens of neighbors spent the six hours and six minutes in between searching for the missing 3-year old around her rural Gaston County home. Presumably, McCullen helped them. Crying.

They did not find anything.

At 10:10 AM the following day, they did. Jordyn’s battered body was located in a shallow grave in some woods near her home, covered with branches and leaves.…

LAS VEGAS, NV – Forget the WWE, forget MMA… if you want to see no-rules, no-hold-barred brutality, you don’t have to go further than the nearest Mickey D’s.

The customer isn’t always right. Sometimes you have to put them in their place. Sometimes you have to beat the shit out of them. At least that’s the operant management theory at this particular restaurant.

It all starts routinely enough: people are gorging themselves on McFoodProduct that is slowly killing them, disaffected employees are waiting for the school bell to ring, and a not-very-smart, too-cheap-for-her-own-good bit of fluff, Sabrinah Fontelar (pictured), is trying to pull the old “I just want a water cup so I can fill it with soda” routine.

The manager, Erika Chavolla, is wise to that old schtick, and shuts her down quick via the brilliant tactic of turning the soda machine right the hell off. That’s when the sparks start to fly, and that’s when our video starts.

Buffy Von Short-Shorts’ response is to go into a rage, hurling invectives, abuse, a McFry, and finally a McShake at the counter dwellers.…

VENTNOR, NJ – A woman confessed to bludgeoning her mother and grandmother to death in their condo on July 7th.

Heather Barbera, 42, evidently wanted to live it up and have a rip-roaring time in Atlantic City and later in Manhattan.

However, she needed a way to fund her luxurious desires.

So, according to reports, Barbera used a nightstick to beat her mom and granny to death. She then took their cash and credit cards before hightailing it to Atlantic City.

The bodies of the two women – 67-year-old Michelle Gordon and 81-year-old Elaine Rosen – were discovered by Barbera’s uncle. He’d stopped by the condo on July 8th to see why they were not answering his calls.

“It was unimaginable,” he said. “It was horrible, they were both on the floor. There was blood all over. I was hoping they were alive, even though they were dead.”

Police didn’t have a hard time finding Barbera as she was leaving a credit card trail all over Manhattan as she stayed in a luxury hotel and enjoyed a shopping spree as she walked toward Times Square.…

JACKSONVILLE, FL – A man fought back against a home intruder armed with a rifle by gouging his eyes out.

Richard “Beast” Golden was in his home the other night when he heard someone break out his glass door.

He was then confronted by 34-year-old Timothy Hinson, a man Golden did not know, who was armed with a rifle and demanding money.

“He hit me in the head with a rifle and at the exact time a buddy of mine happened to come up and distract him,” said Golden. “When he distracted him I made my move. I grabbed him and locked the gun in.”

Golden put Hinson in a headlock and proceeded to shove his fingers into Hinson’s eyes as far as he could.

“I dropped the clip because I have some military training and then there was still one in the chamber. It went off. I knew I wasn’t dead. Then military training took over and I gouged him in his eyes until I felt his brain,” Golden said.…

CHEHALIS, WA – Two brothers have been accused of raping and murdering a 16-year-old boy.

This is an odd one as a motive behind the brothers’ actions hasn’t been made clear. But here’s the details so far:

Last week, 16-year-old Benjamin Eastman was reported missing by his father. During their search for the teen, investigators would find his body buried in a shallow grave.

A medical examination would rule Eastman died of blunt-force trauma.

As the discovery was making the news, police were asking for help locating Eastman’s closest friend, 16-year-old Benito Marquez and Benito’s brother, 21-year-old Jonathan Adamson.

The brothers were reportedly the last to see Eastman and seemed to have left the area.

Once the brothers were located and questioned by police, they began singing — especially when cell phone records show they lured Eastman into the woods for a camping trip but actually planned to assault him.

Adamson allegedly told detectives that once in the woods, he and his younger brother physically assaulted Eastman for 20-45 minutes. Adamson estimated they kicked Eastman more than 100 times.…

BURLINGTON, VT – A fight between two men on a bridge ended with one of them falling off the bridge and the other facing murder charges.

Jared Streeter and Joshua Granger, both 20, have had a long-running rivalry that hinged on them both being interested int he same woman.

The two men decided to settle things with an arranged fight on Saturday at the Blue Bridge.

The bridge is a railroad span over the Winooski River that is commonly traveled on foot as a shortcut between Burlington and Winooski.

The fight had its own set of rules, the main one being that no weapons would be allowed. The two men showed up, along with a small crowd, and the fight began.

According to witness statements, the crowd advanced toward the fight, causing the two men to back up toward the bridge.

At some point, Streeter got knocked out and hit his head on a metal railing. He reportedly was “sleeping for a good two seconds.”

Sleeter managed to get back up and resume fighting but he was visibly groggy.…

PEARL RIVER, LA – A 20-year-old woman has been accused of beating a 46-year-old man to death who was recovering from brain tumor surgery.

While people were out enjoying themselves on the Pearl River on Saturday, an argument started between two large groups at a sandbar.

Apparently, the disagreement was over one group throwing bottles into the river and the other group telling them to stop.

Jeffrey Howell, 46, was a part of the latter group. He had recently survived a brain tumor surgery and still had the staples in his head.

The argument turned physical and Howell ended up dead from blunt-force trauma to the head. An autopsy would later reveal Howell had been hit near the scar from his surgery.

“If you cup your hand behind your left ear, that’s where the incision was,” said St. Tammany Coroner Dr. Charles Preston.

After talking with witnesses at the scene, 20-year-old Blaine Manalle was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. She’s currently in the St Tammany Parish Jail with a $250,000 bond.…
