In The Mean Time...

NEW ORLEANS, LA – A man has been jailed after he chased down a man who stole his wallet and then beat him to death.

It started out as a hot, sunny morning in New Orleans this past Friday, but it would soon turn stormy in a bit of subtle foreshadowing.

Edwin, whose last name was not released, and may not even be known, was out spare-changing.

As any pro will tell you, the ability to size people up quickly is an important part of effective begging. Some people are a soft touch, and you want to focus your efforts on them. Some people would just assume see you starve, and they’re not worth your time.

If you intend to mix a little larceny in with your bumming, reading people properly becomes even more important: a matter of life and death vs. mere efficiency.

Edwin was a little off Friday morning.

He approached a man wearing a Pantera shirt and asked for a dollar, then snatched the wallet out of the man’s back pocket and ran.…

LANCASTER, CA – The body of a man was found after he died a horrible death inside a stone pillar outside a California grocery store.

On Monday, police pulled over a man suspected of driving a stolen vehicle. The man fled on foot and the officers were unable to locate him.

That was until Saturday when his decomposing corpse was found inside a stone pillar outside the WinCo Foods grocery store.

Turns out that when the man ran from police he made his way inside the store and on to the store’s roof.

Access to the inside of the store’s stone pillars can be reached from there and the man either fell or climbed into one of the pillars.

On Saturday, a manager at the store smelled a foul odor coming from that pillar and thought it was a sewage issue.

The plumber that was hired to check it out called police after he knocked away some of the pillar’s stone and saw a man’s leg and tennis shoes.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” sheriff’s Lt.…

TROY, NC – A woman taking a walk in her North Carolina neighborhood was reportedly mauled to death by two pit bulls.

When the 66-year-old woman did not return home after her routine walk, her husband went out with neighbors looking for her.

When they were unable to find her they called 911. Responding police and emergency personnel would find her body along an unused road in her housing development.

According to reports, it looked as if the woman had been attacked by a dog so police immediately began searching the surrounding area.

Eventually they “located two pit bull dogs with physical evidence reflecting the dog’s involvement.

The dogs’ owner agreed to release the dogs to animal control so they could be euthanized and tested for rabies. Medical examiners also wanted to study the dogs’ jaw sizes.

As of Saturday, the case remained a death investigation and not a criminal investigation.

“This is a very tragic event, which has deeply affected the family, friends, deputies, and first responders,” Montgomery County Sheriff Chris Watkins said.…

DENVER, CO – Police have taken a 16-year-old girl into custody in connection to the death of a 7-year-old boy who was found dead on Tuesday.

Jordan Vong was reported Monday afternoon after he went missing in his neighborhood. Police searched a 20-block radius but did not find the boy until Tuesday night.

That’s when police searched the family’s home and found Vong’s body. Police are not releasing any details regarding how the boy died, but did say the body was carefully hidden.

“It was intentionally concealed, and it took some time to find it,” said Joe Montoya, division chief of investigations.

The next morning, a 16-year-old girl was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree murder after police said they found evidence connecting her to Vong’s death.

She is being held without bond and will be formally charged on Aug. 14.

Police have not released her identity because she is a juvenile and have not stated her relationship with Vong.

Interesting to note, however, was Montoya’s description of Vong’s family when he stated they were “cooperative to a point.”

GoFundMe page has been created to help raise money for Vong’s funeral.…

CAYCE, SC – A man in South Carolina called police to his home to help him find his missing bag of meth.

I always thought Officer Friendly was a myth- some fairy tale they told you in elementary school, like Santa Claus, or the Easter Bunny, or the Honest Politician.

Turns out Officer Friendly is real. A meth-head in Cayce, SC met him.

When the unnamed 24 year-old, who is a strong contender for Dumbest Criminal of 2018, went to indulge in his favorite narcotic this past Sunday, he was mortified to find that his meth was missing.

He could have taken this development as a warning from the Good Lord Above not to speed on Sunday, but he didn’t.

He could have run amok and gotten all stabby with the other denizens of his lair (the most popular response to missing meth), but he didn’t.

He could have even gone out and bought more meth. Nope.

You’d never guess what he did in a million years if the headline didn’t give it away.…

DELRAY BEACH, FL – The shooting of a 10-year-old boy has been linked to a decades long feud between three Florida families, say police.

Everyone has heard of the Hatfields and the McCoys.

The two families, who lived by the Big Sandy River along the modern-day border of Kentucky and West Virginia, engaged in a bloody 19th-century feud that lasted almost thirty years.

This feud is a well-known part of American folklore, and has become synonymous with internecine, interfamily hillbilly warfare. It ended with dozens killed and wounded on both sides of the affair.

It’s the kind of thing that you read about and think “Stupid hillbillies! I’m so glad we’ve evolved beyond that as a culture.”

Not in Florida, baby!

Florida has its own modern-day Hatfield-McCoy Feud, and while it takes place in an urban setting, the Northwest and Southwest neighborhoods in Delray Beach, it is just as bloody and just as stupid as the original.

Partisans siding with three longstanding Delray Beach families have been fighting since a 2009 nightclub dust-up, the cause of which no one even remembers any more, except for the vague recollection that there was a diss involved.…

TAMPA, FL — A man got so angry during a political disagreement that he drove to the other man’s house and shot him in the ass.

It happened Monday night after 44-year-old Brian Sebring and 46-year-old Alex Stephens got into a political argument that seems to be the norm these days.

Sebring was not happy about Stephens’ messages, nor did he like the threats Stephens was allegedly sending him.

So instead of blocking him or calling police to report the alleged threats, Sebring made the totally rational decision to visit Stephens at his house two miles away. Armed with a Glock and an AR-15.

After pulling into Stephens’ driveway and honking his horn, Stephens came out of his house to confront Sebring.

Sebring responded by pulling out his Glock and firing at Stephens, hitting the man in the thigh and the ass. Sebring then turned himself in to police.

Stephens was taken to Tampa General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries while Sebring was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed firearm.…

HOUSTON, TX – A man masturbating while riding a bicycle was shot by a woman after he tried entering her home.

This must be the week of The Masturbators.

First we have a homeless guy in SC whipping his weasel at a 13-year-old-girl whose denser-than-lead mother left her home alone with him while she went to the store.

Now word comes out of Texas about a crazed masturbating bicyclist running amok in a Houston neighborhood.

That takes some serious coordination. This guy is a pro.

About 5:15 PM on Tuesday, around the time normal, productive members of society are coming home from a long day’s work, this assclown was freewheeling around the Golfcrest neighborhood, popping wheelies and copping feelies. On himself.

He was really enjoying himself, too, and who wouldn’t be! The refreshing rush of the breeze on his inflamed johnson, the delirium of the love tugs blurring his vision to a delightful kalidoscopic dazzle, the lyrics to his own special pervert’s version of Freebird soaring through his head.

Feelin’ GOOD, man.…

HOUSTON, TX – Two children cried and begged for their lives as their father brutally murdered them before calling his wife to say he’d left her a present.

On Saturday, Sabine Ntongo dropped 8-year-old Marcel Ndossoka and 1-year-old Anna-Belle Faith Ndossoka at their father’s apartment.

Ntongo had recently separated with the children’s father, 61-year-old Jean Pierre Ndossoka, after six years of marriage.

She was leaving the children with Ndossoka so he could visit with them while she went to work.

Later that day, Ndossoka began calling his estranged wife at her job, telling her he’d killed their kids and that he’d left her a present at his apartment.

When police arrived and made entry into Ndossoka’s apartment, they found his two children on his bed with their throats slit.

Officers also found a bloody knife and a note written by Ndossoka in which he states Ntongo would be the one to “carry the burden” of her children’s souls.

Ndossaka wasn’t at the scene when police arrived but was found the next day in his car suffering from a self-inflicted, but not life-threatening, gunshot wound.…

DURHAM, NC – An aggressive driver, whose antics behind the wheel caused locals to use social media to get him off the road, has had his sentencing delayed after a judge questioned his plea deal that would have him serve no jail time.

Close your eyes. Now imagine the most aggressive driver you’ve ever encountered. Imagine someone even more aggressive than that. No, even worse.

Imagine a Road Douche so bad that other social-media-savvy local drivers teamed up with police to hunt his ass down and kill him.

Okay, that last part is just wishful thinking on my part. You can open your eyes now.

The asshole you are looking at is Maurice Beckwith, 52, of Durham, NC, and he is the King of the Road Douches.

I don’t know what his problem is, maybe a bad case of “Boy Named Sue” syndrome, or a pair of undescended testicles, or a chronic case of Vaginal Silicosis.

Whatever it is, he’s had it for a long time; he has “driving while license revoked” convictions as far back as January of 2003, so he’s definitely an OG Road Douche.…

RIVER FALLS, WI – Police in Wisconsin have arrested a roofer after they say he killed a co-worker with a circular saw.

Two roofers got into some kind of altercation while working on a roof Monday afternoon, leading to one man dead and the other in jail for his murder.

Police say they were called to the home at around 4:30 p.m. and found 37-year-old Israel Valles-Flores unconscious with severe lacerations to his face and neck.

Nothing could be done to save the man and he would be pronounced dead at the scene.

His co-worker, 24-year-old Maguel Nabarro, has been accused of killing Valles-Flores with a circular saw.

Nabarro was charged with intentional homicide and placed in the Pierce County Jail. Police have not given a motive behind the attack, stating the investigation is still ongoing.…

TYSONS CORNER, VA — A mother has been arrested after she shot her two daughters, killing her 5-year-old and critically injuring another.

On Sunday night, a 911 call was made by 33-year-old Veronica Youngblood who stated she had just killed her two daughters.

When Fairfax County police officers arrived at her apartment they did not find Youngblood but did find her two daughters had been shot.

One of the girls, 5-year-old Brooklynn Youngblood, had been shot in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. Her old sister was still alive and rushed to the hospital where she is in critical condition.

A short time later a was made to 911 from an acquaintance of Youngblood’s who told the dispatcher that Youngblood arrived at their residence and that there was “cause for concern.”

When police arrived at that location they found Youngblood as well as the gun they believe was used to shoot her two daughters.

Youngblood was arrested and charged with murder. She’s currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center without bond.…
