GRAND FORKS, ND – A woman in North Dakota reportedly shot her three young children to death before turning the gun on herself.

Police were the ones who found the bodies after the school the children attended asked them to perform a welfare check at their home.

When the officers arrived, they found the dead bodies of  35-year-old Astra Volk and her children, 14-year-old Tyler Talmage, 10-year-old Aidan Talmage and 6-year-old Arianna Talmage.

According to police, the children were shot to death by Volk before she turned the gun on herself. No motive has been given at this point, but Volta recently posted a fundraiser on GoFundMe looking for financial help.

The campaign, which has been removed, stated the following:

“Myself and my boys suffer from mental illness, bi polar, manic depression, autism, etc. we have all been hospitalized for this 🙁 I work full time but my wages have recently been garnished for medical bills. I’m looking for help with 1 months bills to help get on our feet and look for a second job.…

ENGLAND – A 19-year-old woman has been sentenced to over a decade in jail after painting her face like a clown and stabbing her boyfriend five times during sex.

The incident happened last year after 19-year-old Zoe Adams and her 17-year-old boyfriend, Kieran Bewick, had smoked some weed and drank some vodka.

Bewick felt sick and decided to lay down in Adam’s bed. She followed him after downing a few more shots of vodka and was now wearing clown makeup.

“She walked in with her hands behind her back and asked: ‘Does this scare you?’,” Bewick would later tell police. “She had diamond eyes, and a Joker mouth, with red lipstick on the lips, and she had her hands behind her back. She had a weird smirk on her face.”

Adams asked Bewick if she could tie him up in bed, to which Bewick declined. So Adams told him to at least put a pillow over his face because the sex would be kinkier.

After Bewick covered his face with a pillow Adams stabbed Bewick in the chest with a 10-inch knife.…

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Police have started investigating an incident in which a 1-year-old had his face pummeled after his mother dropped him off at his daycare.

According to the boy’s mother, Tiffany, she received a phone call Monday from the Kiddiegarden daycare a few hours after dropping off her baby and his older sibling.

When she arrived at the daycare she said she could hear her baby, Jesse, screaming. She would find that her baby had cuts to his face and that both of his eyes and lips were swollen.

Outraged, the woman admits she lashed out in anger and punched the 22-year-old daycare worker who was supposed to be looking after the children.

Baby Jesse was taken to the hospital to have his injuries treated and to make sure he isn’t suffering from injuries that could cause long-term damage.

Tiffany said the worker told her a 2-year-old girl was responsible for the baby’s injuries. A claim that Tiffany, as well as the accused 2-year-old girl, find hard to believe.

“It’s no way a baby, a 2-year-old and that baby was small and she didn’t look like she was the violent type and her mom said she wasn’t the violent type and her mom said scratches her baby might do but when seen that picture she started crying and said her baby wouldn’t do anything like that,” Tiffany said.…

HOUSTON, MO – Two teens have been accused of intentionally killing a puppy by throwing it off an unused fire watch tower.

Police were initially contacted by a woman who said an unnamed juvenile was bragging to other students at Houston High School about he and 17-year-old Taylor DeWolfe throwing a puppy to its death.

When police questioned DeWolfe, he admitted that he and the other boy had driven to the Highway 38 fire lookout tower with the sole purpose of killing the puppy.

After climbing to the highest platform on the tower, DeWolfe said the other boy took the puppy and tossed it to the ground 100 feet below.

When they climbed back down, DeWolfe said the other boy picked up the dog’s corpse and threw it in a ditch.

DeWolfe went on to say that the juvenile later told him he had told people at school what they had done and maybe they should move the puppy’s body.

So DeWolfe went back to the scene to get the puppy’s corpse, put it in the trunk of his car and then left it on the side of Highway Z.…

BALTIMORE, MD — After a six-month investigation, police have charged a woman with child abuse in the death of a baby girl that was poisoned with an enema.

Police began investigating 32-year-old Latayia Hutchins last November after police were called to a home for a report of a six-month-old baby not breathing.

The baby, Indira Henderson, was rushed to the hospital where she would later die.

After completing the girl’s autopsy, the medical examiner would rule her death a homicide by poisoning.

Investigators would find that Hutchins had been babysitting the girl when she got permission from the girls’ mother to give the baby an enema to help with a bowel movement.

During the administration of the enema, Hutchins used a lubricant that contained Lidocaine, a topical numbing agent sometimes used to treat irregular heartbeats.

Immediately after the enema was administered, Indira began convulsing and stopped breathing.

Hutchins, who reportedly worked for more than five years in clinical research at a Maryland hospital. was arrested on Thursday and charged with first-degree child abuse.…

HOUSTON, TX – A 10-year-old boy in Houston died after he was electrocuted while hiding inside a dryer during a game of hide-and-seek with friends.

On Friday, Fernando Hernandez Jr. was playing hide-and-seek with some other kids when he decided to hide inside a dryer in his apartment complex’s laundry room.

The kids he was playing with would find Hernandez unresponsive inside the dryer and called for help.

“I was just inside cooking… and my little son came inside and told me my son was dead on the floor,” said Hernandez’s mother. “He was purple and his eyes were open and he was gone.”

His parents performed CPR on the boy until paramedics arrived, but Hernandez would later be pronounced dead at the hospital.

When this was first reported, the cause of death was not known so I assumed someone turned on the dryer while he was in it, or he died of some kind of positional asphyxiation or suffocation.

But on Monday an autopsy would reveal Hernandez had been electrocuted.…

PERU – A 41-year-old man from Canada who traveled to Peru to study hallucinogenic medicine was lynched by a mob of villagers after he allegedly killed a local shaman.

Sebastian Woodroffe went to Peru in hopes of getting an apprenticeship with a plant healer from the Shipibo tribe in hopes of helping him treat addicts with hallucinogenic medicine.

On an Indiegogo page he set up to help finance his trip, Woodroffe wrote:

“The plant medicine I have the opportunity of learning is far deeper than ingesting a plant and being healed. It is not about getting ‘high’ either. It is true some of the plants I will be learning about do have a perception-altering effect, but these are a few plants out of thousands I will be working with.”

So how did Woodroffe start his trip with such good intentions and end up with a “I went to the Amazon rain forest and all I got was this lynching by a mob” t-shirt?

Well, the details aren’t quite clear, but current reports say that Woodroffe was killed after being accused of shooting an 81-year-old Olivia Arevalo to death.…

Site Update for 4/20/2018

HERE, NOW – I made a post in our forums explaining the recent lack of articles, but since not all of you visit the forums, I figured it was time to post something more public — especially after getting a recent email (thanks for your input, Sharon).

The fact of the matter is that I am burned out. After 14 years and thousands of articles (5441 written by me alone), I am having a real hard time getting motivated to write another article about something horrible happening to someone.

It has gotten to the point that I don’t even like checking the news for crime-related articles. I have become thoroughly desensitized by it all and more cynical than I thought possible. None of this is helped by, for the last five years or so, my personal and professional life have gotten a hell of a lot busier.

I thought taking a short break would give me time to refresh my batteries, but that short break has turned into almost three weeks.…

SWEDEN, NY – Police say that 10 days after being released from a psychiatric hospital, a woman in New York decapitated her 7-year-old son with a kitchen knife.

Police were sent to a home Thursday night after 911 received several calls reporting a suicidal woman with a knife. Before officers arrived, another call came in telling them to hurry as someone had been injured.

Once at the home, deputies encountered 36-year old Hanane Mouhib who was holding a large kitchen knife. When she refused to drop it, the deputies used pepper spray and a Taser to disarm her and take her into custody.

After subduing Mouhib, the officers found the body of the woman’s 7-year-old son, Abraham Cardenas, decapitated in another room.

Five people were inside the home when Abraham was killed, including Mouhib, Abraham, Mouhib’s husband, the boy’s grandmother and his 10-year-old brother. No one else was injured during the attack and they were reportedly in another part of the house when Abraham was killed.

According to Mouhib’s husband, there were no warning signs before Mouhib murdered her son.…

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Police have charged a woman with attempted murder after they say she intentionally set her ex-boyfriend on fire on Easter Sunday.

According to reports, 38-year-old Shivon Perez asked her ex-boyfriend Bradley Atkins over to her apartment to help her fix a pipe that was leaking under her bathroom sink.

The couple had only broken up the week before but were on amicable terms, according to Atkins. He thought he was at the apartment to fix the leak, eat dinner and watch a movie.

However, while he was under the sink working on the pipe, he noticed Perez standing over him while holding a container.

When he asked what was inside the container, Perez responded, “It’s gasoline, you son of a bitch,” before dousing him with charcoal fluid.

“You are going to pay,” Perez reportedly said before setting Atkins on fire.

As Atkins began taking off his burning clothes, he noticed Perez was locking the front door while spraying the charcoal fluid on the living room floor.…

SAN BRUNO, CA – By general rule, I usually don’t report on shootings like this – but in this case, I’m making an exception because I don’t think I’ll have another chance at that headline.

For those of you living under a rock, 39-year-old Nasim Aghdam opened fire at Youtube’s headquarters in Californa, injuring multiple people.

One man and two women were shot before Aghdam used the gun to fatally shoot herself.

Aghdam didn’t kill anyone, yet, but last reports listed a 36-year-old man in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition.

Initially reported as a domestic dispute, it now turns out that Aghdam was just a nutty Youtuber who was angry with Youtube’s latest policies that have seen the dramatic decline of many Youtube creators’ viewership and ad revenue.

Aghdam had multiple social media accounts, including multiple Youtube channels with videos that featured everything from her animal rights activism to workout routines.

Lately, she had been focused on her hatred of Youtube and how their new policies had severely hampered her income.…

HOUSTON, TX – Guys, I’m getting my ass kicked with work but couldn’t let the day pass without posting something.

Today I chose one of the dumbest things ever live-streamed on Facebook and it involved a woman accidentally shooting a man in the head.

The incident happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of a gas station while 26-year-old Devyn Holmes, 25-year-old Cassandra Damper and another man are live-streaming while sitting in a car playing with a handgun.

In the video, Damper can be seen grabbing the gun and pointing it to the camera. Holmes remarks that she is making him nervous while the man in the backseat claims the gun doesn’t have a clip in it.

That’s when Damper racks the slide of the gun, points it at Holmes and says “say something, bitch” before pulling the trigger. The gun fires and Holmes is hit in the head. The video ends as Holmes slumps over with blood pouring out of his wound while Damper and the other man flee the vehicle.…
