FORT IRWIN, CA – Police have accused 24-year-old Rose Marie Smith with the death of her 4-year-old stepson.

Police were called to a home on June 7 on a report of an unresponsive child.

HENDERSON, NV – A 16-year-old boy died while playing a game of Russian roulette with two other teens inside an abandoned house.

On Friday police tried to pull over a vehicle they witnessed driving recklessly. The car ended up crashing and several teenagers ran from the vehicle.

After failing to flee police and being taken into custody, one of the teens told officers “he had been present during a murder” at an abandoned home earlier that day.

When police investigated the home, they found the body of 16-year-old Matthew Minkler in a closet.

Apparently, Minkler had been playing Russian roulette with 16-year-old Jaiden Caruso and 17-year-old Kody Harlan inside the home earlier that day.

But unlike the typical rules of Russian roulette of the person pulling the trigger themselves, Caruso changed the rules according to Harlan.

Harlan told police that Caruso pulled out a .375-caliber revolver for a game of Russian roulette but “never allowed the other participants to handle the firearm or pull the trigger themselves” during the game.

Caruso ended up shooting Minkler in the face.

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.…

FRANCE – Anthony Bourdain has died after he hanged himself in a France hotel room.

Bourdain, 61, was in Strasbourg, France to film an upcoming episode of CNN’s Parts Unknown.

His good friend Éric Ripert, the owner of New York City’s Le Bernardin restaurant, found Bourdain dead in his room on Friday morning.

CNN released the following statement:

It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain.

His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

Bourdain leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter.

As for why he decided to kill himself — who knows? Some people are speculating everything from drugs, depression and\or his relationship with Italian actress Asia Argento, who he started dating in 2016.…

WICHITA, KS – Emily Glass, the main suspect in the death of her stepson Lucas Hernandez, has committed suicide.

The body of 26-year-old Emily Glass was found early Friday morning at the home of Lucas Hernandez’ father. She apparently died from a gunshot wound.

No further details have been reported.

Glass was the main suspect in the death of her stepson, 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez, who was reported missing in February of this year.

Glass told police she had fallen asleep for a few hours and when she woke up Hernandez was gone.

Before he went missing, the state of Kansas was told at least twice that Hernandez was being abused and enduring a dysfunctional and violent family life.

It was alleged that Glass had bipolar disorder, abused meth, and routinely targeted the boy when she was angry at his father.

Then last month, Glass led a private investigator to the boy’s remains underneath a Kansas bridge.

The story regarding how that private investigator got Glass to lead him to the boy’s body could be turned into a movie, to be honest.…

BOSTON. MA – The person who struck and killed an elderly man then fled the scene was taken into custody minutes after his interview with a reporter was aired.

Just after 1 p.m. Monday, 23-year-old Phocian Fitts struck a man in 80s as he crossed the street using a crosswalk. Fitts fled the scene and the man was rushed to the hospital where he would later die.

Fitts was identified by police after matching his license plate. He was not taken into custody initially but police towed his vehicle and took some of his clothing.

However, that all changed after a Boston 25 reporter found Fitts on the street and Fitts began talking. He made no apologies for killing a man, but he did make these choice statements.

“I just want to say one thing right…. accidents happen.”

“I was listening to my music and as I was driving I was driving too quick… I was driving too quick to the point where I couldn’t really stop and it was a green light.…

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.…

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – A man suspected of killing up to six people connected to his 2009 divorce and custody battle has killed himself.

Six people found murdered over the last few days were connected to 56-year-old Dwight Jones’ divorce from his wife in 2009.

The divorce involved the typical messy subjects — fights over money and child-custody issues — and did not work out in Jones’s favor.

On Thursday, police believe Jones killed renowned psychiatrist Dr. Steven Pitt. Some of you true crime buffs may remember Dr. Pitt as the 59-year-old was involved in the JonBenet Ramsey murder and the Jodi Arias trial.

He was also the psychiatrist Jones was ordered to see during his divorce. Jones shot Pitt to death Thursday night outside his Phoenix office.

The next day, Jones shot two paralegals to death. Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49 worked at the law firm Burt Feldman Grenier. A partner at that law office, Elizabeth Feldman, represented Jones’ wife and was probably the intended victim.

The following morning, hypnotherapist and life coach Marshall Levine was shot to death by Jones just after midnight Saturday at his Scottsdale office.…

DALLAS, TX – A woman in Texas has been accused of fatally shooting her husband because he was beating the family cat.

Police were called to a home on Saturday morning where 47-year-old Mary Harrison had just shot her husband, 49-year-old Dexter Harrison.

When questioned by detectives Harrison told them she shot her husband because he was beating on the family cat.

The man was taken to the hospital but he would die from his injuries.

Harrison was arrested on a murder charge and booked into the Lew Sterrett Justice Center. She is being held on $100,000 bail.

According to neighbors, the family moved into the home a few months ago with their two teenage sons. They mostly kept to themselves, but when the family cat went missing Harrison was seen posting missing fliers in the neighborhood.

“A man got shot over a cat? It’s kind of crazy. It’s unbelievable. A man loses his life over a cat. I mean, people love their pets, but it ain’t that serious… to die for a cat,” said neighbor Carl Phillips.…

POINSETT COUNTY, AR – Police have arrested a woman in connection to the death of her one-month-old daughter who was found inside a clothes dryer.

Police were called to a mobile home Tuesday afternoon after the baby’s father found his daughter, Caseleigh, dead inside the dryer.

Both he and the baby’s mother, 25-year-old Tyra Neal, were arrested but charges against the baby’s father were later dropped.

Second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse charges were not dropped against Neal, however, and she is sitting in jail on a $1 million cash-only bond.

Family members say Neal has four remaining children.

No word on how the baby died, but the sheriff’s office said her body has been sent to the State Crime Lab for an autopsy.

No word on a motive, either. But I’m guessing a 25-year-old living in a trailer in the middle of nowhere five kids may have a little something to do with it.

Sheriff Kevin Molder said the immediate response of Arkansas State Police was the reason why they have been able to progress this case so quickly.…

NORTH HAVERHILL, NH – A 19-year-old is facing a possible seven years behind bars if he is found guilty of helping his roommate commit suicide.

According to prosecutors, Parker Hogan assisted in the suicide of his roommate, Michael Buskey, who was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound earlier this month.

Although Buskey’s death was ruled a suicide, police arrested Hogan and charged him with causing or aiding a suicide involving death, along with three counts of falsifying physical evidence.

Police say Hogan told them Buskey had a court date and did not want to go to jail. So the two went into a wooded area near their apartment where they practiced how Buskey would shoot himself.

Hogan then left the woods, waited until he heard a gunshot then returned to make sure Buskey was dead. He removed a phone from Buskey’s pocket that had been playing a song on repeat.

He brought back the gun and a suicide note before calling police and Buskey’s father the next morning.

“I think there’s a lot more behind it,” Buskey’s mother said about her son’s death.…
