RURAL RETREAT, VA – A woman has been accused of cutting off her boyfriend’s head allegedly demanded arresting police officers “to take me back and let me get my heads.”

Sometimes a trinket is all we have by which to remember a departed loved one. The need for that trinket, that last link, can exceed rationality.

Roena Mills, 41, knows. She’s no April Fool.

She is batshit crazy, though.

When Mercer County deputies were called to a house in Lerona, West Virginia, by annoyed residents this past April 1st, they found her deranged ass bouncing around, bloody and single-gloved, with “a pocket knife in her pants”.

Mills had been trying to convince the homeowners to loan her a chainsaw and some gasoline. They declined and offered to give her a ride somewhere. She declined their counteroffer. And refused to leave.

Deputies later reported that her eyes were glazed and that she kept talking to an unseen person whom she called “Daddy.”

She gave a false name and blamed all the blood on having been thrown through a glass door.…

CHICAGO, IL – A 16-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy have been accused of killing another teen by stabbing him, setting him on fire, then running him over when he tried running away.

Firefighters were in the middle of training last Tuesday when they noticed smoke in a nearby field. When they went to investigate, they found the smoldering body of 18-year-old Luis Guerrero.

It wasn’t long before police had three teens in custody and charged in connection to Guerrero’s murder, all thanks to the parents of 18-year-old Francisco Alvarado.

Turns out that while police were on the scene, Alvarado’s parents told them their son was an acquaintance of Guerrero’s and that there was unexplained blood stains in their Jeep their son had borrowed that night.

This information led police to 18-year-old  Jesus Correa who took them to a motel where Alvarado was staying with 16-year-old Tia Brewer.

Inside the room police found Guerrero’s bloody backpack, a knife and screwdriver, as well as bags of food and clothing that indicated the couple were about to take a trip.…

BELLEVUE, WA – A former student and employee at Bellevue College has filed a lawsuit that claims a former assistant dean at the school raped her, assaulted her and stalked her for nearly six years.

Robert Hare, in a 2007 article entitled ‘Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work,’ claimed that psychopaths are three to four times as prevalent in senior management positions in the business world as in the population at large.

I’ve always thought that a similar study of the world of academia would make for interesting reading.

If the allegations in a quite explosive lawsuit prove true, 54-year-old Faisal Jaswal could well be the star of that study, as the behaviors and actions attributed to him are a shockingly pure expression of sexual sociopathy.

The lawsuit was filed a couple of weeks ago. It accuses Bellevue College in Bellevue, Washington, as well as the state of Washington, of fostering a hostile work environment by failing to protect an employee, identified only as S.R., from Jaswal.

The specific accusations seem almost fictionally malevolent.…

LUTHER, OK – Police say a 14-year-old boy stabbed a 14-year-old girl multiple times during an assembly at Luther High School.

Luther High School has around 250 students and the school’s board recently passed a measure to arm faculty members.

While none of the faculty are currently armed, they did just go through training for active threats which may have just saved a teen girl’s life on Thursday.

According to reports, the students were attending an assembly on the first day of school when a boy stood up and began attacking a female classmate.

Several teachers immediately intervened and quickly realize the boy was stabbing the girl.

They managed to get him off the girl and throw him up against a wall, but not before he had stabbed the girl 9 to 11 times.

The girl was flown by helicopter to the hospital where she is currently in stable condition.

The suspect was taken into custody and is being held in a juvenile detention center. Police do not know the relationship between the boy and the victim, or a motive.…

FOREST CITY, NC — No charges will be filed against the 15-year-old girl who shot and killed her mother’s abusive boyfriend.

Who wants to end the week on a happy note?

I do! I do!

Steven Kelley is such an asshole, he had to leave Indiana.

He had active domestic violence protection orders on his sorry ass from two different women in two different states, and I guess they made things pretty hot for him. So he loaded up the truck and he moved to Forest City. N.C., that is.

Of course, you can’t be a wife-beater without a wife, so Kelley brought along his new punching bag, girlfriend Chandra Nierman, 44, and her kids: a 12-year-old son and 15- and 16-year-old daughters. He should have left the kids in Indiana.

Changes in latitude, changes in attitude? Yeah, right. Different state, same old shit. He was up to his old tricks in no time.

Constant threats became action on August 4th, when Kelley started beating on Nierman and fired off a couple of rounds inside the house to make his point.…

PHOENIX, AZ – Police have charged a man with murder after he stomped another man to death for allegedly following his 16-year-old daughter into a convenience store bathroom.

According to a police report, 40-year-old Melvin Harris had picked up his 16-year-old daughter and two of her friends after they had gotten off work.

On the way home they made a stop at a QuikTrip convenience store to get drinks.

While his daughter was in the store, Harris was approached by Leon Armstrong who asked for some money. Armstrong then entered the store after Harris gave him some change.

A short time later, Harris’ daughter came out of the store and said that a man had followed her into the restroom and had tried to get into the stall she was using. She notified employees and Harris informed a hired security guard at the store that if he didn’t handle the situation he was going to.

Armstrong was kicked out of the store and Harris’s daughter pointed him out as the man who was in the bathroom.…

MIAMI BEACH, FL – A man has been accused of beating his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter to death, and the possible reason behind the beating is mind-boggling.

Last Friday night, 27-year-old Dennys Llopiz called 911 claiming he found his girlfriend’s daughter, 3-year-old Skylar, slumped over in the shower after he put her there for soiling herself.

Possibly figuring that responding police may question the extensive bruising on Skylar’s body, Llopiz added that Skyler had fallen on some rocks when they went fishing the night before.

Skylar was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. When doctors conducted an autopsy, it was quickly revealed the girl had not had a simple fallen on some rocks.

Skylar had suffered a large laceration to her liver, her large intestine, bowels and diaphragm and right lung were all bruised, the air sacs in her lungs were ruptured, and three ribs were fractured.

Her cause of death was ruled blunt force trauma.

Since Llopiz was the only person with the girl at the time of her injuries and his explanation for the girl’s injuries were not meshing with the obvious ass-kicking she was delivered, he was charged with her murder.…

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – A Virginia man will serve no active jail time after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

One of the biggest debates in the world of social sciences at the turn of the 20th century was the age-old question of “nature vs. nurture,” or whether or not human behavior is determined by heredity (“nature”) or environment (“nurture”).

Without rehashing tens of thousands of pages of academic argument, some of it quite impassioned and even acrimonious, we will jump right to what appears to be the modern consensus: both usually play an important role.

Common sense, really, but then most of the things that academics argue about usually are.

To the readers who just cannot restrain themselves from delving deeper into this debate, I recommend watching the Three Stooges episode Hoi Polloi. Much more entertaining than the learned articles on the subject, and just as correct.

The salient point is that, as individuals, we often learn from our experiences, consciously or otherwise. Sometimes this weakens existing behaviors, sometimes it reinforces them.…

RIO RANCHO, NM – The 6-year-old girl found dead in her home’s garage was naked from the waist down and had damage to her genitals.

Ariana Jade Romeo was found dead on Saturday morning inside her home’s garage, which was also a makeshift bedroom described as being in “total disarray” by police.

Her body was in bloody sheets on a piece of foam that was acting as a mattress. The girl was not wearing pants or underwear and there was damage to her genitals.

Lying nearby was a marijuana pipe and prescription medications.

How the girl died has not been released, but search warrants stated police were looking for items that could be used to strangle or beat someone.

Neighbors say the girl lived at the home with her mother and older kids were often seen going in-and-out of the home. She had only been living at the home for a short time.

While no one has been arrested at this time, here’s some interesting information regarding the man who owns the home, 63-year-old Winston Scates.…

BEAUFORT, SC – A high school teacher allegedly had sex with two students over spring break after using Google to search if it was legal to do so.

Brittany Whetzel is too impatient for her own good. And a bit slutty to boot.

The 28-year-old Battery Creek High School English teacher recently fell down the increasingly common rabbit-hole of wrongful relations between teacher and student.

Well, in her case, it’s ‘students’ with a terminal ‘s’, as in “so your friend is pretty cute, too.”

Whetzel, who had been working for the school district in Beaufort, South Carolina since 2016, had apparently had the hots for one of the students for a while now, telling some co-workers how handsome he was and sharing her hopes to one day have “beautiful babies” with him.

A bit optimistic on her part, and for more than one reason.

She knew that this nefarious need could get her in trouble; she told friends that she couldn’t wait until June 3rd, when the student would graduate, so that “she could do whatever she wanted,” including putting the aforementioned buns in her oven with the help of his baby batter.…

SAN DIEGO, CA – A father in California got the satisfaction of beating on the man accused of molesting his 3-year=old daughter before police arrived and took the neighbor to jail.

The incident happened Saturday morning after a man found his 3-year-old daughter standing in his living room partially undressed.

When he asked her why she was not in bed, she told him a man from next door had taken her out her bedroom window and touched her inappropriately.

Her father took her next door and told her to point out the man who had molested her. She pointed at their neighbor, 46-year-old Francisco Diaz, a man well-known to the family.

“I talked to him every day. I gave him money,” the girl’s father said. “Everyone in my family is comfortable with him. I can’t believe it.”

Understandably upset, the girl’s father started arguing with Diaz and the argument quickly turned physical. The two men were still fighting when police arrived and had to separate them.

Diaz was arrested and is being held without bail on charges of kidnapping, threat to cause death, lewd and lascivious acts with a minor and sodomy with a minor.…

STATESVILLE, NC – Police have arrested a man after he hired a 14-year-old girl to do yard work then offered her money to see her naked.

Salesmen call it the foot-in-the-door technique. You get someone to make a small concession, and that makes it easier for you to get them to agree to a bigger concession later.

Douglas Jackson, 61, of Statesville, NC, must have been watching Glengarry Glen Ross recently.

When an enterprising 14-year-old girl agreed to do yard work for pay, he had that perverted foot in the doorway.

After letting her work up a good sweat, he pushed a hard sell: more pay for more services.

Specifically, Santa Claus here wanted her to shuck off them sweaty skivvies, ’cause she so sexy.

The unnamed young lady slammed the door right on that ol’ cloven hoof.

The incident was reported to local authorities on August 3rd, and Jackson was arrested for the indecent proposal. He was held under a $50,000 bond on a single felony charge of indecent liberties with a child.…
