NEW YORK – The The 17-year-old daughter of of the U.S. Ambassador to Thailand fell to her death from the 25th floor of the Herald Towers Friday morning. Nicole John was pronounced dead at the scene after being found on a third-floor ledge of the building with severe trauma to her body. Investigators say Nicole was attending a party on the 25th floor with her friends after having just left a club. An investigation is underway, but witnesses say the group was heavily intoxicated and Nicole may have been leaning out of the high-rise’s window for fresh air when she fell over the edge. Ilan Nassimi, 25, was hosting the late night party and was charged with unlawful dealing with a child for supplying alcohol to someone under the age of 21. With any luck, she passed out before falling. According to the ambassador’s website, Nicole attended high school in Bangkok, but had returned to new York to attend college where she was planning to major in fine arts.…

STATESVILLE, N.C. — Early Friday morning. a small group of ghost hunters ended up becoming part of the legend they went to investigate.

The group of twelve had gathered on the railroad trestle at Buffalo Shoals Road in Statesville where, over 100 year ago, a train wreck happened that killed about two dozen people. They were there to investigate the legend that claims you can hear or see the doomed train on each anniversary of the accident.

Unfortunately for the group, they happened to be on the trestle when a Norfolk Southern train came around the bend at around 2:45 in the morning. The conductor saw the group and tried to stop the train but was unable to do so before striking and killing 29-year-old Christopher Kaiser. His body was found in a nearby ravine.

Another woman with the group was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Several reports say that Kaiser pushed the woman out of the train’s path before he was hit.

I’ve included some video detailing the original accident, the trestle and the ghost stories surrounding it.…

EAST FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – We already had once incident this month where the body of an 9-year-old disabled girl was stolen from a cemetery in Pennsylvania, now we have one of a body stolen from a cemetery in New York. Police say that sometime between Monday evening and early Tuesday morning, vandals broke into St. Charles Cemetery in East Farmingdale. The ghouls got inside three different mausoleums and in one of them, a casket had been taken out and smashed open. The casket contained the remains of an 87-year-old woman buried 12 years ago and are currently missing. Police do not believe the woman was specifically targeted but that whoever did it came with the tools to perform such an act. The Diocese Brooklyn operates the cemetery and has contacted family members to let them know what some sick assholes had done. Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio called the desecration an “incomprehensible” act. I don’t subscribe to the whole ‘the body is sacred even after death” crap and personally, you could turn my dead ass into a rotting marionette for all I care.…

“Hey! Get this car off me!”

August 23, 2010 at 6:59 am by  

Lorain, OH – Though a crime hasn’t actually been committed, I could not pass this story up. Mostly because I, too, tend to get all nekkid and sleepy when fuggered up – I’m just a bit choosier as to where I lay my head. According to police, an inebriated nekkid man was accidentally ran over and trapped underneath a vehicle while sleeping in an alley last Wednesday night. Robert Biggenow, 24, in town to visit with family members, celebrated the joyous reunion by tossing back a beer or sixteen. When it was time to sleep it off, his family said he went outside and laid down on the front lawn, but then went to the backyard, and that’s where they thought he would stay. Huh. That’s where I make my drunk relatives sleep, too! Instead of passing out in the backyard like he was supposed to, Biggenow stumbled into an alley behind the house and fell asleep there. Shortly thereafter, a man driving a Toyota Corolla pulled into his usual parking spot in the alley.…

Hikers Get Lost Three Times In One Weekend

August 17, 2010 at 10:25 am by  

JACKSON COUNTY, IL –  On the lighter side of the news, a group of hikers had to be rescued THREE TIMES at Cedar Lake over the weekend. According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s office, some lost hikers called them Friday because they were lost on a trail. Deputies and local fisherman were able to find them a couple hours later and took all four back to their vehicle. On Saturday the same group called police because they had gotten lost for a second time. Once again deputies located the group and led them back to their campsite. A short time later, the same group called back reporting they had somehow gotten lost a third time, were out of water and could not find their way back to their vehicle. A rescue boat (?) found the group and took them back to their vehicle. I don’t go hiking. Mostly because I don’t want to be eaten by a bear, raped by a hillbilly or haunted by a witch. But if I did ever attempt to enjoy the activity, getting lost once would probably be enough for me to not attempt it again without a GPS and Google Maps.…

LANCASTER, Pa. — Gruesome story out of Lancaster where some sick bastard(s) dug up the grave of a 9-year-old girl and stole her casket and remains. Paula Ream suffered from cerebral palsy and died in 1962, was buried in Riverview Memorial Cemetery alongside her parents. Police believe the grave was robbed sometime Thursday night or early Friday morning as the caretaker discovered the open grave on Friday. Family members are shocked and like myself, wondering why in the hell anyone would do this. I have my suspicions that involves stupid kids, but no matter who is responsible, that’s some pretty sick shit. Lancaster County Crimestoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and or conviction of the idiot(s) responsible. Police say they combed the area for evidence and have already been getting tips from callers. So with any luck we will have some mughsots shortly.…

Woman Accidentally Deposits Cocaine

August 16, 2010 at 9:27 am by  

South Windsor, Conn. – A lot of people are already aware of this, but from my experiences, anyone who is middle-aged and still abusing drugs are a sad lot. They usually operate at a fraction of their potential as they try to hang on to days gone by or follow the vicious circle of abusing drugs and alcohol just to cope with their life corrupted because of drugs and alcohol. But on top of all that, they are usually pretty stupid. Case in point, 43-year-old Kendl Murphy. After a weekend of partying, she made a stop at her local bank’s drive-up teller to make a deposit. What she didn’t realize was that she had forgot to remove the cocaine filled baggie from the deposit envelope she gave them. Bank staff asked Murphy to wait for her transaction, then called police. Murphy was charged with possession of narcotics and released on a $1,000 bond. Police Sgt. Scott Custer said when Murphy was questioned, she admitted the cocaine was hers and that she had forgot it was in the envelope.…

TOOELE, UTAH – Jacob McClatchy, 8, had finished eating dinner on Sunday and ran upstairs to change out of his church clothes so he could go outside and play with his older brother. After fifteen minutes, one of his brothers went to go check on what was taking Jacob so long and found him hanging from their bunk bed. Sometime after Jacob had changed his clothes, he picked up a terry cloth belt from a bathrobe and tied it to the bed. Officials believe he put the other end around his neck like a scarf and played a game in which he wrapped himself in the belt and then twirled. But something went horribly wrong. No one knows exactly what happened, but somehow the belt got wrapped around his neck too tight, strangling him. Paramedics tried to revive Jacob, but he was pronounced dead at the Primary Children’s Medical Center. Might be a good time for some of you parents to have a little chat with your young kids if you haven’t already.…

Forsyth County, GA – No, this isn’t a story about Morbid’s Friday night hook-up…get your minds outta the gutter, folks.  This is a story about a beaver – a large, angry, spittin’ mad beaver. And though I snicker and snortgiggle at the possibilities, I will try to get the story out with as few puns as possible. Wildlife officials in Forsyth County are keeping their eyes peeled for the pissy little beaver after getting a report that the critter attacked a local fisherman. Russ McTindal was just kinda hanging out, hoping to reel in a fish or two when the rascally beaver came at him. When the beaver got uncomfortably close, McTindal attempted to shoo the critter away by smacking and poking it with his rod, but that only angered the little stinker. Teeth bared, the beaver then tried to eat the man. McTindal was left with some battle scars – bites to his leg and arm. “He was actually attacking me. I hadn’t provoked him or anything,” he said.…

Woman Loses Arm Dancing In Front Of Train

July 29, 2010 at 9:15 am by  

MELBOURNE, Fla. – More news involving someone getting a bit too close to a train. Fortunately this person survived, though they are a bit lighter. Witnesses say a 27-year-old woman was dancing on some train tracks before her arm was ripped off by an oncoming train. Lucky for her an unidentified policeman who arrived on the scene applied a tourniquet to her stump as she laid conscious and bleeding to death, probably saving her life. She was rushed to the hospital where she was listed in critical condition. Police say she and another man, possibly her boyfriend, where walking near the train crossing at around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday when they got into an argument. The woman then jumped on the tracks, but was unable to get clear of the train when she tried to jump back off of them.…

CLAREMONT, N.H. – An employee for APC Paper Company was killed when he got sucked into a paper roller. No one knows exactly how 34-year-old Leo P. Gonyea got pulled into the machine even though a co-worker was standing 15-ft from him. “He was looking the other way. When he turned, he saw Leo wasn’t there. He went around and found Leo on the floor.” The machine is about the size of a car and is uses rollers to squeeze moisture out of paper as it is fed through. Think about that horrific fact for a bit. “I understand there is some flexing in the machinery, so if there’s a bump the rollers do give,” Claremont Fire Chief Peter Chase said. “However it’s obviously not meant for a person to go through.” When paramedics arrived, they found Gonyea, who regularly talked of working 12 hour shifts on his Facebook page, was out of the machine but was in cardiac arrest and suffering from severe trauma. He would die in route to the hospital.…

Meriden, Conn. – Three teens were seriously injured after being caught trespassing inside the abandoned Undercliff Institution. The facility used to be a place to house dying children, and – as is usually the case with creepy, abandoned medical facilities – it’s supposedly haunted. Police say the trio may have considered themselves amateur ghost hunters. When deputies arrived at around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, the boys pulled a Wile E. Coyote when they took off running into the woods and over the edge of a cliff. Though their injuries were not life-threatening, they were serious enough for one of the boys to use their cell phone to call police on themselves for help. I think the police may have simply followed the swath of shit the boys left, but I’m not sure. The unnamed teens were taken to the hospital and issued infractions for simple trespass. On the upside, the story of these three boys will be told in future Underhill urban legends, describing how three boys once broke into Underhill only to be found dead later, their naked bodies tied together in a knot and covered in the bloody handprints of children. …
