WASHINGTON, DC – One week after getting engaged, a 35-year-old woman was stabbed to death in a random attack at a Washington, DC intersection.

The incident happened Tuesday evening as Wendy Martinez, an avid runner, was out for her routine jog. Just before 8 p.m. Martinez was attacked by an unknown male with a knife at 11th and O streets, Northwest.

Bleeding profusely from her neck, Martinez managed to stumble into a nearby Chinese restaurant for help. Surveillance footage shows her running inside the restaurant and seemed to be trying to alert customers about her attacker outside.

Some of the patrons ran out while others tried tending to the woman’s wounds until paramedics arrived. Unfortunately nothing could be done to save her and she would die from her injuries.

Authorities are now asking for the public’s help in identifying the man they say is responsible, described as a black male wearing a mustard-colored shirt, dark-colored pants, white socks and sandals.

He fled heading southbound on the 1400 block of 11th Street, NW, after attacking Martinez.…

AIMES, IA – Police have accused a 22-year-old homeless man of murdering an Iowa State University student whose body was found in a golf course pond.

On Monday morning police were called to Coldwater Golf Links after some golfers discovered an abandoned golf bag.

A short time later, police would find the body of a female in a pond at the golf course. She was identified as 22-year-old Celia Barquin Arozamena, a student at Iowa State University and Iowa State Female Athlete of the year.

Barquin Arozamena, who was due to graduate with a degree in civil engineering, had suffered stab wounds to her upper torso, head, and neck.

While on the scene, investigators were approached by a man walking on a nearby trail who asked, “what did he do to her?”

When asked to clarify, the man told police that he had been staying with a man in a nearby homeless camp who had been expressing a desire to “rape and kill a woman.”

Police went to the homeless camp and found the man, identified as 22-year-old Collin Daniel Richards, and noticed he had several fresh scratches on his face and that he was trying to conceal a gash on one of his hands.…

LAKE CITY, FL – An inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution murdered his cellmate, gouged out his eyes, then strolled to breakfast with the victim’s ear on a necklace.

The incident happened early Thursday inside a cell being shared by 58-year-old Larry Mark and another man who has not been identified.

Mark was reportedly aggravating his cellmate to the point that his cellmate strangled him to death. But the cellmate wasn’t done.

After killing Mark, the man gouged out Mark’s eyeballs and placed them in a cup. He reportedly told other inmates he planned to eat them later.

Mark’s body was not discovered until after his killer showed up for breakfast with other inmates and began showing off Mark’s ear that he had fashioned into a stylish necklace.

Unconfirmed reports state Mark’s killer had recently been transferred to Columbia from Florida State Prison where he had been on Death Row.

Obviously, I don’t know Mark so I can’t comment on his character or if he deserved the death he got. However, he was serving a life sentence for beating a cab driver’s skull in for $35 and a wedding ring.…

ECTOR COUNTY, TX – A 19-year-old woman has been accused of beating her 3-month-old daughter to death with a dresser drawer.

Klarissa Ramirez brought her daughter to the Medical Center Hospital emergency room with her unresponsive daughter.

She claimed that she and the girl’s father had fed her and placed her in a baby seat in the living room. They walked away only to return and find her unresponsive.

After examing the girl, doctors found she was suffering from fractured ribs on both sides of her torso as well as a fractured skull.

When confronted with the fact that the injuries her daughter suffered did not match up to her story, Ramirez admitted she was solely responsible.

She said she had squeezed her daughter and then struck her in the head with a dresser drawer. Ramirez was arrested on May 8 and charged with injuries to a child. She bonded out the next day.

The charges against Ramirez were upgraded to capital murder in July after her daughter died and the cause of death was ruled a homicide.…

MOUNT VERNON, WA – Police arrested a man after he admitted to cutting off his girlfriend’s head in front of their 3-year-old daughter because God told him to.

Vanessa Cons, 27, and Timothy Hernandez, 32, lived together with their 3-year-old daughter at the home of Hernandez’s parents.

On Sunday Hernandez’s parents left to go to church. When they returned a few hours later they were greeted by a horrific site.

Cons was lying dead on the floor with her decapitated head positioned on her back like some kind of macabre art exhibit.

The couple called police to report what they had found while also letting them know their son and his daughter were not at the home.

When police arrived they found that, aside from having her head sawed off, Cons had also suffered multiple stab wounds to her back, neck and to the back of her head.

A butcher knife was found in the sink with a clean blade but with blood and hair on the handle.

Police would locate Hernandez with his daughter at the nearby Cascade Mall, where Hernandez would readily admit that he was responsible for killing Cons.…

MOGOCHINO, RUSSIA – News outlets in Russia are reporting that a 15-year-old used a chainsaw to decapitate himself after losing at a video game.

Now let me preface this with the fact that this story is coming from Russia, so who the hell knows what is actually factual or not.

I decided to put my Russian to the test (Google translate) and browsed some Russian news sites reporting on this incident. They are all pretty much copies of one another with similar details.

What’s being reported is that 15-year-old Pavel Matveev got so upset after losing a video game on his computer that he went into his backyard and used a chainsaw to decapitate himself.

Some have already called into question the validity of this claim as it doesn’t seem possible that anyone could chainsaw off their own head. Personally, if true, I would imagine it is all in the execution.

Like, you would have to rig it so it stayed running and stationary as you just kind of lay the back of your neck on the running blade.…

LAS VEGAS, NV – A couple have been arrested after the woman’s missing 3-year-old was found murdered at Lake Mead.

On Sunday morning, 20-year-old Cassie Smith called 911 to report her son, 3-year-old Daniel Theriot, was missing.

She said she had taken her son to Sunset Park to feed the ducks, but when she took her eyes off of him to use her phone he had seemingly disappeared.

Police immediately began a huge search effort that included shutting down the park and checking cars as they left. But they also began doubting Smith’s version of events when they received info from other park-goers.

No one at the park remembered seeing Smith and her son at the park that morning, nor did anyone remember seeing Smith searching for him at the park.

“We started doubting if the three-year-old was ever at the park,” said homicide detective Ray Spencer. “We suspected some foul play was involved.”

Early Monday morning investigators would have their suspicions confirmed when Daniel’s body was found near Lake Mead National Recreation Area.…

YORK COUNTY, SC – York County investigators said they’ve arrested and charged a woman with murder after she poisoned her husband with eye drops.

On July 21, the body of 64-year-old Steven Clayton was found dead in the foyer of his home he shared with his wife, 52-year-old Lana Sue Clayton.

It was believed he had fallen down the stairs and died from his injuries.

So you can imagine the shock that came to his friends and family when the toxicology results came back from his autopsy.

Steven Clayton, the man known for his “big personality” and retiring in 1995 after founding a national company, had been poisoned.

Police say Clayton had poisonous levels of tetrahydrozoline, the chemical found in eye drops, in his body at the time of his death.

During questioning, his wife admitted she had been poisoning her husband with eye drops in the three days prior to his death. She was arrested and charged with murder and unlawful malicious tampering of food.

Steven’s family provided the following statement:

“The family is shocked and mortified at the cause of Steven’s death.

ANCHORAGE, AK — A mother has been charged with murder after two of her baby daughters die two years apart.

Last November, 23-year-old Stephany LaFountain called emergency services to report her 13-month-old daughter was not breathing.

The girl was taken to the hospital where she would die four days later. It would later be determined that the girl had died from lack of oxygen to the brain.

Looking into LaFountain’s past, investigators learned that she had lost another daughter in a similar fashion two years prior.

In 2015, while in a relationship with a different man, LaFountain had a 4-month-daughter that died. Police did not believe the death was the result of foul play at that time.

But now? After LaFountain had lost two baby girls in the same way within two years?

“The autopsy results and medical records for both children showed that they were entirely healthy, with no genetic abnormalities, no diseases, and no injuries,” police stated in a news release.

Investigators started to focus their attention on LaFountain and decided to check out her Internet activity.…

RURAL RETREAT, VA – A woman has been accused of cutting off her boyfriend’s head allegedly demanded arresting police officers “to take me back and let me get my heads.”

Sometimes a trinket is all we have by which to remember a departed loved one. The need for that trinket, that last link, can exceed rationality.

Roena Mills, 41, knows. She’s no April Fool.

She is batshit crazy, though.

When Mercer County deputies were called to a house in Lerona, West Virginia, by annoyed residents this past April 1st, they found her deranged ass bouncing around, bloody and single-gloved, with “a pocket knife in her pants”.

Mills had been trying to convince the homeowners to loan her a chainsaw and some gasoline. They declined and offered to give her a ride somewhere. She declined their counteroffer. And refused to leave.

Deputies later reported that her eyes were glazed and that she kept talking to an unseen person whom she called “Daddy.”

She gave a false name and blamed all the blood on having been thrown through a glass door.…

CHICAGO, IL – A 16-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy have been accused of killing another teen by stabbing him, setting him on fire, then running him over when he tried running away.

Firefighters were in the middle of training last Tuesday when they noticed smoke in a nearby field. When they went to investigate, they found the smoldering body of 18-year-old Luis Guerrero.

It wasn’t long before police had three teens in custody and charged in connection to Guerrero’s murder, all thanks to the parents of 18-year-old Francisco Alvarado.

Turns out that while police were on the scene, Alvarado’s parents told them their son was an acquaintance of Guerrero’s and that there was unexplained blood stains in their Jeep their son had borrowed that night.

This information led police to 18-year-old  Jesus Correa who took them to a motel where Alvarado was staying with 16-year-old Tia Brewer.

Inside the room police found Guerrero’s bloody backpack, a knife and screwdriver, as well as bags of food and clothing that indicated the couple were about to take a trip.…

LUTHER, OK – Police say a 14-year-old boy stabbed a 14-year-old girl multiple times during an assembly at Luther High School.

Luther High School has around 250 students and the school’s board recently passed a measure to arm faculty members.

While none of the faculty are currently armed, they did just go through training for active threats which may have just saved a teen girl’s life on Thursday.

According to reports, the students were attending an assembly on the first day of school when a boy stood up and began attacking a female classmate.

Several teachers immediately intervened and quickly realize the boy was stabbing the girl.

They managed to get him off the girl and throw him up against a wall, but not before he had stabbed the girl 9 to 11 times.

The girl was flown by helicopter to the hospital where she is currently in stable condition.

The suspect was taken into custody and is being held in a juvenile detention center. Police do not know the relationship between the boy and the victim, or a motive.…
