In The Mean Time...

Hey, wondering where we went? No worries, we are just changing format and conducting some testing before we flip the switch. For now, you can get all of our new stuff by clicking here.. We aren't quite ready to switch quite yet, but the end result will be a continuous flow of dark and often day-wrecking content from our regular authors as well as other members. It's a work in progress and we are still working on some design and function stuff, but the updated content is now coming through.

Marilyn EdgeSANTA ANA, CA — Two children were found dead inside a Southern California hotel room, and their mother has been charged after an unsuccessful suicide attempt.

According to reports, 47-year-old Marilyn Edge intentionally drove a car with Georgia license plates into an electrical box near a Costa Mesa Home Depot on Saturday morning.

When police arrived on the scene, they found Edge trying to strangle herself with a cord she had wrapped around her neck. A propane tank was also found inside the car, one that Edge said she was hoping would have exploded when she crashed the car.

As she was being taken to the hospital, Edge told authorities that her two children, 13-year-old Jaelen and 10-year-old Faith, could be found dead inside a Hampton Inn hotel room in nearby Santa Ana. Sadly, she wasn’t bullshitting.

Turns out Edge was angry over losing custody of her children to her ex-husband, whom she’d consistently prevented the children from visiting. Instead of turning over Jaelen and Faith as a judge had ordered, she fatally poisoned them.…

Randall KerrickCHARLOTTE, NC  – A Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer has been charged with manslaughter within a few hours of shooting and killing an an unarmed man.

There are still some unanswered questions regarding this incident and what we do know is that Jonathan Ferrell got into a single-car accident in a wooded area early Saturday morning. The wreck was so bad that  Ferrell had to crawl through the back window of the vehicle to get out.

Ferrell wandered a half mile before emerging from the wooded area into a nearby neighborhood. He went to a home and began banging “violently” on the front door. The woman inside opened the door, thinking it was her husband returning home from work. When she saw a large black man standing on her front porch, she shut the door and called 911.

What happened when police arrived on the scene is where some of the details are lacking. Camera footage taken from responding officer’s patrol car show an unarmed Ferrell running towards the officers while lifting up his shirt.…

Shan Marie McDonaldPhoenix, AZ – A daycare owner has been arrested after she admitted to choking a 6-year-old girl in her care, and possibly abusing a baby with pillows.

According to the probable cause statement, when a mom arrived at 36-year-old Shan Marie McDonald’s daycare to pick up her two daughters, ages 1 and 5, she found her baby on the couch with a busted lip and unable to open her eyes. The baby was taken to the hospital where she was treated for various injuries, including bruises on her neck, shoulders, face and thighs.

When the 5-year-old was interviewed, she said she didn’t know what happened to her baby sister but did know what happened to a 6-year-old girl who was also at the daycare. According to her, she saw McDonald choke the girl because she couldn’t find her shoes.

The mother of the 6-year-old had also noticed her daughter was sporting injuries when she picked her up and had taken some pictures of marks on her throat and scratches on her forehead. …

Jessie AlexanderPALM BEACH, FL — I’m all about full transparency, so let me be completely clear when I admit that I’m only writing this one up to help combat DD’s severe lack of side-boob action.

A loopy bird in Florida has been accused of posing as a television show producer and scamming thousands of dollars from businesses who believed they would be featured on a Fox television show.

According to police, Jessie Alexander contacted several Palm Beach businesses to let them know that for the low, low price of $3,500, they could have their business featured on a new show on FOX 29 titled “Best of the Palm Beaches”.

In return, the publicity would garner the business $47,000 of publicity after it aired on May 19. One of these business owners, Linda Gary, ponied up the cash to have her Worth Avenue real estate firm featured, but called police when the show never aired and Alexander would not return her phone calls.

Police investigated and quickly found out that Alexander was not affiliated with FOX 29 and did not have permission to use the station’s logo, which was on the agreements Alexendar had her victims sign.…

William OganSPOKANE, Washington – Motorists in Spokane started calling police on Sunday after getting an eyeful of a pious pedestrian. Witnesses told officers that William “Billy” Ogan, 31, was masturbating on the side of the road and displaying his penis to women.

Ogan confirmed this, telling police he was celebrating his “new marriage” to God, “working for Jehovah,” and “spreading God’s word.” God reportedly wanted Ogan to show his penis to women in order to teach them about sex. At press time, God had not responded to calls seeking his side of the story, and, of course, he cannot be forced to testify against Ogan thanks to spousal privilege.

Ogan was supposed to appear in court for three counts of indecent exposure on Tuesday, but “he refused to participate in the court process,” so he had to go on Wednesday instead. When Billy showed up, he did so without a lawyer and told the judge he didn’t feel anyone else in Spokane County could defend him.

“The legal system here in this facility, they don’t do the job, so I feel better representing myself,” Ogan said while surrounded by three deputies.…

Michael DeMaioGreenwich, CT – A man told police he “lost it” when he bashed his wife’s skull in with a baseball bat inside their mansion after learning she was leaving him.

Police responded to the $7.3 million estate of Michael and Diane DeMaio on Tuesday after receiving a report of a domestic situation with injuries. Once inside, they found Diane, 54, laying in a pool of blood inside a large closet with three ice packs placed under her badly disfigured head.

“What, hello, what’s going on,” she said before closing her eyes. Police tried to put pressure to a large gash on her head, “but felt it was soft”.

Also in the home was Diane’s elderly mother, Gloria Sica, who was screaming that Michael had attacked her daughter. “That monster hit her and she’s dying,” she screamed. An officer drew his gun on Michael and placed him in custody. The 55-year-old would confess to using a baseball bat to bash his wife’s head in.

“I lost it, I just lost it,” he told the officers as he lay handcuffed on the ground, explaining he became enraged shortly after learning his wife was leaving him.…

Justin DeRykeEFFINGHAM, IL – A man in Illinois has been charged with the murder of his 7-year-old niece after claiming that she fell on a stick andneeded to be put “out of her misery.”

Willow Long, 7, lived at her grandparents’ home with her mother, Ciarra and her uncle, Justin. Willow was reported missing on Sunday after her mother said she lay down for a nap, leaving the girl watching television with her 3-year-old brother, and woke up to find she’d vanished.

When she asked her son about Willow’s whereabouts, the boy pointed to the front door. Willow had apparently changed clothes before leaving the house, and had left her glasses behind. After failing to locate her, Willow’s mother called police.

Investigators were first working on the theory that Willow had left the house to re-enact scenes from THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, the movie she was allegedly watching when she was last seen, so the search initially focused on nearby bodies of water.

More than 300 volunteers and members of the FBI, the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, the Watson Police and the Illinois State Patrol took part in the search that ended 30 hours later, when four volunteers found Willow’s body a few miles from her home.…

Erika Susan PerdueUniversity Park, TX – While it’s understandable for a bored housewife to pick up a hobby, a man in Texas found out his wife had been at home trading child porn online – for over a decade.

Erika Susan Perdue, 42, pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to downloading and sharing child pornography since 1999. According to reports, Perdue confessed to “file-sharing child pornography every day,” in her 1.4 million dollar mansion while her husband, a successful attorney, was at work.

Perdue was arrested in April of last year after she unwittingly traded some of her child pornography with an undercover agent. She was using Facebook under the name Classybitch, with photos of herself posing as a sultry housewife. This isn’t surprising for a woman who reportedly drove a Camaro around town with personalized license plates that read “MY SYN”.

Detectives were eventually able to track her down and raid her home, finding a graphic collection of pictures and videos containing sexual content of minors on her computer, including video of of a man and a woman engaged in sex with a child.…

Anthony Donnell RuffHouston, TX– A two year-old toddler had half his face eaten by a pit bull mix as he played outside an apartment complex in southwest Houston, and now the dog’s owner is facing possible jail time.

On August 27th, 22- year-old Anthony Ruff asked his 8-year-old stepson to take the dog out to use the bathroom in the apartment’s common area without a leash. After the dog did its business, it decided to partake in a pit bull’s favorite snack – a small child.

The dog didn’t have to look far as there were children out playing and it wasn’t long before it was enjoying a 2-year-old boy’s face. Ruff’s stepson was unable to do anything but watch as the dog laughed maniacally and took another bite from the tasty morsel.

The victim’s mother was alerted by her 4-year-old son who’d ran inside screaming that his little brother was dead. Mom immediately ran outside to find that wasn’t entirely true, but the boy was bleeding motionless on the ground with the dog standing nearby with blood on its mouth.…

open windowGonzales, LA – A three-year-old boy died on Sunday after he wandered away from his home and got his head trapped inside a partially open car window.

The boy’s family told investigators that the toddler wandered out of the house without any of the adults in the house knowing. After just a few minutes, the adults realized he was missing and started looking for him.

He was found hanging by the neck from the partially opened window of a Chevy Lumina parked outside. When responders arrived, the boy had already been removed from the window. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 7:30 p.m.

The boy wasn’t tall enough to put his head through the opening and would have needed to climb on something to reach the window, deputies said. Sheriff’s Office detectives are still investigating the death.…

prison barsSan Antonio, TX – A 67-year-old Texas man was sentenced to 35 years in prison after being convicted last month of raping his son’s prom date.

The incident happened In May 2012, after Ismael Cruz’s son and his son’s 19-year-old girlfriend returned home from the prom. Because they had been drinking heavily, the girlfriend decided to spend the night.

The girl told police that she woke up in the middle of the night with her dress partially removed and someone on top of her. When she realized it wasn’t her boyfriend, but rather her boyfriend’s father, she pushed Cruz away and screamed for help.

Cruz’s son ran out and began beating him, and continued to try and get his hands on him even while police were on the scene. Cruz, who has two prior drunk driving convictions, told investigators he’d drank more than 60 beers that night.

Cruz’s attorney had asked state District Judge Ray Olivarri for the minimum penalty of 25-years in prison. Judge Olivarri took the attorney’s suggestion under consideration, then sentenced Cruz to 35 years behind bars.…

Mark Andrew RiceHANCOCK COUNTY, MS – A man recently released from prison after setting his dead fiancee on fire, now stands accused of brutally attacking a woman.

Mark Rice was just released from jail in March, but now he’s back in custody on charges of kidnapping, sexual battery and aggravated assault. He’s accused of beating a woman so badly that Chief Investigator Glenn Grannan called the attack one of the most heinous attacks he has dealt with in Hancock County.

“She suffered injuries to her face. She suffered injuries to her throat; He attempted to strangle her with the electric cord attached to a lamp,” Grannan said. “She suffered injuries to her buttocks area and back side as a result of a sexual attack.”

The unidentified woman was found by a roommate who had returned home to find the victim bound with duct tape and electrical ties. Unlike idiots in the movies, this person did not go into the house and investigate, but rather ran out of the house and called 911.…
