HAINES CITY, FL – A 27-year-old high school teacher has been arrested after she sent nude photos and sexually explicit texts to a 15-year-old boy she met through Xbox One.

Back in September, a woman in Texas wash checking her son’s phone and found he was engaging in an inappropriate relationship with Robin Dunlap, a teacher at Haines City high school.

The woman used her son’s phone to contact Dunlap and inform her that her son was 15. Trying to get ahead of the storm that was coming, Dunlap voluntarily went to the Winter Haven Police Department to turn herself in.

She admitted to sending nude photos to a 15-year-old boy in Texas, but only did so before learning his real age. She claimed she met the teen over Xbox One before moving their communications to Kik. Dunlap said that the entire time she thought the teen was 19.

A month later, the teen’s father contacted police to say that Dunlap was still in contact with his son via Google Hangouts, despite Dunlap now knowing the boy’s age.…

CHICAGO, IL — Two daycare employees have been charged after one woman burned five toddlers with a glue gun while the other woman watched and laughed.

After a woman picked her child up from the Children’s Learning Place she noticed her child was suffering from burn injuries.

The mother, an ER technician, called the daycare and demanded an explanation and for the classroom surveillance footage to be reviewed.

The footage was reviewed and captured 32-year-old Lizandra Cosme, who had 16 children under her care, doing some pretty stupid things to some of the children with a hot glue gun she had brought to use on a Christmas project.

Cosme could be seen applying the glue gun directly to the hands and arms of five 2-year-old children – three girls and two boys – as they winced and whined. While Cosme was doing this, 27-year-old Susana Gonzalez watched and laughed.

After both women were fired from the daycare, Cosme was charged with five counts of aggravated battery to a child. Gonzalez was charged with misdemeanor counts of causing the circumstances of endangering a child.…

BUCKEYE, AZ – A woman in Arizona has been arrested after she fatally shot her 2-year-old son to death before stabbing herself repeatedly in the neck.

Police were called to a home after a family member called them to report 26-year-old Alyssa Pettibone had shot her son and was now trying to kill herself.

When officers arrived, they found Alyssa and her son, Hudson Pettibone, lying on the floor of a bathroom.

Hudson was dead from a single gunshot wound, while Alyssa was suffering from multiple, self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck. She told police that she was the one who shot her son before trying to shoot herself.

She failed to blow her brains out with the 9mm handgun found in the bathroom because a bullet had been loaded in the magazine backwards, causing the gun to jam after she shot her son.

Police noted Alyssa seemed mentally disturbed displayed signs of “control/ownership/jealousy issues.” They said that during their interview with Alyssa, she said she was sorry and that “No one would understand.”

Alyssa Pettibone was booked into jail on second-degree murder charges after being released from the hospital.…

HARRIS COUNTY, TX — A gun range employee was cleaning a rifle when he accidentally shot and killed a customer walking into the range.

An unnamed employee at the Hot Wells Shooting Range was cleaning a rifle in the range building when the weapon accidentally fired.

The bullet went through a wall and window before striking 36-year-old Joshua Luke Cummings in the head as he was in the range’s parking lot. Cummings, a married father of three, had just gotten out of his vehicle.

Cummings was rushed to a hospital in downtown Houston by a helicopter, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police believe the shooting was an accident, but homicide detectives are trying to determine whether the gun accidentally fired due to human error or a mechanical issue.

“Homicide will investigate all of the employees, witnesses and take control of the weapon. That weapon will be investigated also to find out if there’s anything wrong with it; if there was a malfunction, or if it was human error,” Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland said.…

COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, OH –  An Ohio woman killed her husband before taking a power saw to his corpse and boxing up the dismembered limbs, living with the remains for five months, according to police.

49-year-old Marcia Eubank was taken into custody in the parking lot of a local Walmart after the rotting remains were discovered.

The Summit County Medical Examiner tentatively identified the decomposing remains found in the home the couple shared as belonging to Howard Eubank, 54, sheriff’s investigators said.

Gary Guenther, chief investigator for the Medical Examiner’s Office, told reporters that, “Due to the decomposition and condition of the body, this process will take additional time.” And probably a lot of air freshener.

On Saturday, the Eubank’s son made a horrifying discovery at his parents’ home in the community of roughly eleven thousand just outside of Akron. He had climbed into the house through a window after being locked out of the home. The son lives on and off with his parents, News 5 Cleveland reported.

Noticing an unpleasant odor and finding maggots, the son texted his mother to ask what was in the stinky boxes stashed in her home office.…

ANAHEIM, CA – A man caught sexually assaulting an 11-year-old female relative on a Disneyland ride has been sentenced to 31 years in prison.

On March 12, 2015, 47-year-old Johnny Lawrence Johnson and the victim were on the Doom Buggy ride at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion when an employee noticed the girl was performing a sex act on Johnson.

Johnson was apprehended by police and the ensuing investigation would reveal Johnson had been sexually abusing the girl for years, usually when she would visit him from Texas in the summers of 2013 and 2014.

At the time of the Disneyland incident, Johnson was living with the girl’s family.

Johnson was looking at a possible 50 years in prison after being convicted Nov 9. of four counts of lewd acts on a child younger than 14 and two counts of having sex with a child 10 or younger.

Back in January, police received a call about an unresponsive woman. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a deceased woman with heroin and needles nearby. She also had ligature marks on her wrists and ankles.

When they questioned her boyfriend, 39-year-old Graser, he told them he found his girlfriend sitting unresponsive on their bed with the drugs on her lap. He then summoned a neighbor, a former paramedic, to come check on her.

After Graser informed a detective he had been arrested months earlier for choking his girlfriend, police decided to question him further. That’s when Graser told police what he had done after finding his girlfriend on the bed.

GWINNETT COUNTY, GA – A couple in Georgia have been accused of torturing a 13-year-old girl for years to the point she is permanently disfigured.

Warning for those of you who are disturbed by extreme child abuse stories: skip this one.

After a teacher noticed one of her 13-year-old students may be the victim of child abuse, she contacted Gwinnett police.

The resulting investigation initially resulted in the girl’s biological mother and stepfather being charged with one count of child abuse. That was until investigators began talking to the victim and found she has endured years of torture.

“Once we started talking to her it became very clear that it was a much more significant case,” Assistant District Attorney Tracie Cason said. “The severity of what happened to this child over a number of years is just astounding.”

According to the Gwinnett County D.A.’s office, the girl’s stepfather, 32-year-old Rimmon Lewis, was convicted of abusing the girl in 2014 and placed on probation. But the abuse continued at the hands of both Lewis and her own mother, 33-year-old Angela Strothers.…

A woman flagged down a police officer at about 3 a.m. at the Magnolia Avenue Police Station to report her son, Joseph Hayden Boston, had molested two young boys hours earlier.

She said her son had called her to confess that he had just molested two boys, ages 8 and 4, that lived at the motel where he was staying.

According to Boston’s mother, the children lived at the motel with their parents, but had been allowed to go to Boston’s room Friday night to watch television. That’s when Boston sexually assaulted both boys.

AURORA, CO – A 10-year-old girl reportedly committed suicide after a fight between her and another girl was posted online.

According to the father of Ashawnty Smith, his daughter was involved in a fight with her alleged bully on school grounds last month.

“She got into her first ever fight. It was recorded by a student and sent to an app called Musical.ly,” her father said.

The video that was posted showed Ashawnty and another girl fighting on Sunrise Elementary School property while other kids watched.

The girl’s mother said the fight started after her daughter confronted the girl she claims had been bullying her daughter.

Once the fight was posted online, the girl suffered even more bullying. The bullying got so bad that, according to her parents, Ashawnty ended her own life.

“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” her mother said.

Ashawnty was rushed to the hospital where she would spend two weeks on life support before dying Wednesday morning.

The girl’s parents believe Ashawnty was the victim of “bullycide” and are hoping that by coming forward and telling their story, they can help prevent another child from killing themselves because of bullying.…

The body of 15-year-old Sabriya McLean was found behind an apartment complex in the 200 block of South 49th Street late Tuesday morning after meeting 23-year-old Cole Swaringer-Herring the previous evening.

According to WPVI, McLean traveled to Philadelphia from her home in Delaware on Monday to meet the Herring, whom she had been corresponding with on Facebook. Her parents reported her missing that same day.

Investigators say that when McLean met up with Herring Monday night, things must have went South for the teen very quickly.

Herring’s parents notified the police the following morning. No explanation was given as to the delay in contacting authorities, but you have to wonder how well they slept that night with a dead girl out back and Sir Sticks-A-Lot in the next room.…
