JEFFERSON, Wis. — No crime here, but just a bizarre accident at a high school swimming pool that seemed more like a scene out of a movie. On Monday, students were in the pool at Jefferson High School during a swimming class. The pool is equipped with an underwater viewing window that allows people to see in the water during swim and dive meets. This window ruptured for reasons unknown and as the water was sucked through the hole, a 17-year-old student in the pool got sucked through as well. The gym teacher, Greg Fetherston, saw what was happening to the student and jumped in to help and was pulled through the window as well. Both student and teacher ended up in the pool’s mechanical room six to eight feet below but Fetherston was able to get the student out safely. Fetherston suffered some minor cuts but the student’s injuries were a bit more serious and he was flown to UW Hospital, where he was still hospitalized Monday night. WISC-TV reported the pool was built in 1967 and a new pool is scheduled to open at the school next year.…

PORTLAND, Ore. — This story happened in Jaded’s neck of the woods and when she was first telling me that someone had died from exposure, we both had assumed it was a tragic case of a  homeless person stuck outdoors without any form of shelter when temperatures dipped below freezing. But it turns out the deceased was not homeless, but a 22-year-old man found naked inside a partially frozen fountain at Waterfront Park who had last been seen getting kicked out of a bar. Witnesses say Mike Ellis had been acting erratically Monday night before he was asked to leave Club 915, where he had been dancing, after he removed his shirt. Ellis obliged, leaving without his shirt and without his backpack that contained his jacket. Police are working with his friends to try and piece together what happened that night, but no foul play is suspected.  An autopsy report confirmed that Ellis died of hypothermia, explaining why he would have undressed and gotten inside the fountain as one of the effects of hypothermia is the brain telling the body that it needs to cool down.…

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Firefighters responding to a fire at Pennsylvania’s George Washington Hotel stumbled upon what they thought was a pretty gruesome crime scene in a 4th floor room. Inside room 405, firefighters found a room littered with liquor bottles with walls and ceiling covered in copious amounts of blood. A piece of scalp, with hair still attached, was resting on the center of a gore-covered mattress. Firefighters called police who in turn declared the room a crime scene, sending out detectives to investigate. But their investigation revealed that this wasn’t a real crime scene at all, but rather a room staged to look like one. Two years earlier, part of the horror film NEW TERMINAL HOTEL, starring the late Corey Haim, was filmed there and the owner of the hotel never cleaned it up in case the film crew needed to come back and do re-shoots. Washington Police Chief J.R. Blyth was pissed off at first, stating he had to pay detectives to check out what he called “the most grisly murder scene in his 35 years in law enforcement” but that in the end everyone had a good laugh about it.…

Boise, Idaho — Turns out the woman who was posing as a plastic surgeon and giving out fake breast exams is transgender. Police say Kristina Ross, 37, was arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license after two women said she gave them breast exams at a bar. She convinced the women that she was a plastic surgeon named Dr. Berlyn Aussieahshowna. She would offer the women information about liposuction and breast augmentation before talking them into letting her conduct a medical examination, including a breast exam. She would conclude the exam by giving them a phone number to an actual plastic surgeon’s office so they make follow-up appointments. Police were notified after the real plastic surgeon received multiple phone calls from women trying to make follow-up appointments with Dr. Aussiahshowna. When she was taken into custody, they found she had a warrant for her arrest, but under the name Kristoffer Jon Ross. She was actually a he. Or rather, a he in the process of becoming a she.…

Kennett Square, PA — The Fairfield Inn and Suites in Chester County was partially evacuated earlier this month after hotel staff found the nekkid and lifeless body of an unidentified 48-year-old man in one of the rooms – his body was surrounded by numerous sex toys, various inhalants and other chemicals, and a gas mask. Police believe the substances, mostly cleaning solutions, were being inhaled by the man to create a euphoric sensation. A source close to investigation stated that the sexual devices and the gas mask indicated that the man’s behavior may have been “ritualistic.” The man was alone in the room, and police believe he died while engaging in said ritualistic sex act. Police have not released the cause of death, and an autopsy report is pending toxicology results. Though authorities have declined to release the man’s name, they have reported that he was from Bloomington, Indiana, was married, and was in town on business. Heh…I guess my fondness for lemon Pledge isn’t so weird after all.…

Notre Dame, Indiana — A 20-year-old Notre Dame student was killed in a tragic accident after the scissor lift he was standing on toppled over in a strong gust of wind. Declan Sullivan worked as a member of the athletic department’s video crew and was on the lift, which extends above the field’s goal posts, recording the team practice. Hours before the accident occurred, Sullivan sent a prophetic messages to Twitter that read: ‘Gust of wind up to 60mph well today will be fun at work… I guess I’ve lived long enough.’ This was followed by another at 4.06pm, that read: ‘Holy f*ck holy f*ck this is terrifying.’ At 4:50pm, the tower would fall over in a 51mph gust of wind, fatally injuring Sullivan. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said: ‘Our thoughts and prayers go out to Declan’s family and friends. Declan was a diligent student worker in our video department and had a tremendous personality and great sense of humour.…

PORTLAND, Ore — A 3-month-old baby is in the hospital after his mother attempted to circumcise him. 911 was called sometime after 2 a.m. Sunday, a woman telling the dispatchers that she had tried to perform a medical procedure on her infant but that there was a lot of blood. When paramedics arrived at the home they realized that the woman had attempted a DIY circumcision and rushed him off to the hospital where he is expected to be ok. No charges or arrests have been made at this point, but the police department’s child abuse team are investigating. I’m all for cutting corners and saving money — times are tough for some. But cut their hair or make their underwear or something. Slicing skin off a baby’s dick is best left to the professionals and not some mother sitting at home on a Saturday night deciding she wants to play moyl. You can watch some video at the link I provided. The reporter tries to talk to someone at the home, but for obvious reasons, they had no comment.…

Costa Mesa, CA – Police say a woman drove around for months with the body of a homeless woman mummifying in the passenger seat. The body was discovered on Thursday after police received a call about a Mercury Grand Marquis that was partially blocking a driveway. Officers detected a foul stench emanating from the vehicle, and after seeing a leg sticking out from underneath a pile of clothes on the seat, broke a window to gain access. Officers made contact with the driver of the vehicle, an unidentified 57-year-old woman, and she told them she had allowed the woman, a transient known to her only as Signe, to sleep in the car overnight sometime back in December. When she walked out to the car the next morning, Signe was dead. The woman told police she was afraid to report the death to the proper authorities, so she just continued to drive the vehicle while Signe decomposed. To combat the smell, the woman had a box of baking soda inside the vehicle.…

FORT WORTH, Texas — Before I go any further, let me go ahead and warn you that the video at the bottom of this article is pretty graphic and that I posted this purely as an excuse to show a man with no face. If you wanna argue politics, go for it, but that’s not the purpose of the article.

The purpose was to simply show the injuries suffered by 25-year-old Dallas C. Wiens after his face was literally burned off of his skull, and the fact that he’s a true badass.

Two years ago he was painting a church when he accidentally hit a power line that caused burns so severe he was left blind and without lips, teeth or a nose. After multiple surgeries in which doctors were able to use skin and muscle from his back and thighs to cover up the exposed portions of his skull, Wiens was left without any working facial features aside from his lipless mouth.

But now because of the new federal healthcare law that allows people up to age 26 to be covered by their parent’s insurance, he has become eligible for a full face transplant and possibly the third American to ever undergo such a surgery.…

I’m posting this video because it is pretty fucking awesome and it freaks me out at the same time. A Russian cop has to jump inside a motorist’s car to avoid a large pack of wild dogs running down the M23 highway.

Houston, Texas — A woman is thinking twice about ever calling 911 again to report a crime after a suspect she turned in called her back. The woman noticed a man beating the crap out of a woman in a car next to hers, so she does the right thing and calls 911 to report it. Thirty minutes later, she receives a phone call from a number she doesn’t recognize. When she answers, a man on the other end keeps asking who she is before hang up. Immediately after that, she gets another phone call but this time it’s from a female. “She called me just as he hung up and it was like, ‘Ma’am, are you the concerned lady that called about my welfare?’ and I am like, ‘Excuse me,’ and she said, ‘Well I’m OK,’ and I said, ‘Excuse me,’” said the woman. The next morning she gets yet another call, this one from inside the Harris County Jail where the suspect was placed for outstanding warrants and not for the assault the woman says she witnessed.…

TRENTON, Mich. – There’s probably no way to know exactly what started the two year long fued between Jennifer Petkov and Rebecca Rose. The neighbors each blame the other and no matter what story you here the truth is probably in the middle where it always is. But no matter what the reasons or who started it, Jennifer took things way too far in a display of callousness so extreme that even I am surprised by it. She used her Facebook to post photos she made of Rebecca’s daughter, Laura Edward, wrapped in the arms of the grim reaper. Laura died from Huntington’s Disease at the age of 24. But that wasn’t enough. She also posted a picture of Rebecca’s granddaughter, 7-year-old Kathleen, depicting her face becoming the center of a skull and crossbones. the young girl also suffers from Huntington’s Disease. Jennifer would go on to apologize for her actions saying “If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t do it.” Her husband, Scott, echoed the same sentiments.…
