Anthony JohnsonWINTER HAVEN, FL – Police have arrested five people in connection to the vigilante beating death of a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman.

Sometime in January, the body of Robert Bank was found in some woods in Sumter County. It would later be revealed that the man had been brutally beaten to death before being burned.

After an extensive investigation into the man’s death, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd announced the arrest of three brothers, their father and a friend in connection with Bank’s murder. Anthony, Nathan and Brian Johnson, have been charged with first-degree murder, along with their friend, Michael Gunn. Brian Johnson Sr. is being charged with helping his sons dispose of Banks’ body.

According to reports, a the men invited Banks to hang out after a female friend told them that Banks had raped her. Once there, the men handed out some vicious justice based on the woman’s claims.

Rafael McCloudVICKSBURG, MS – A murder suspect who escaped from a Mississippi jail last week was shot to death Monday by one of the people he had taken hostage.

Rafael McCloud, 33, escaped from the Warren County jail where he was awaiting trial for the kidnap, rape and murder of 69-year-old Sharen Wilson.

Wilson’s body was found outside an abandoned hospital last year after a group of ghost hunters followed a blood trail out of the building. McCloud was quickly arrested after he was found driving Wilson’s car.

He’s been in jail awaiting his trial ever since, until March 2 when he escaped his cell by taking a jail guard hostage with a homemade shank and forced the guard to give him his clothes.

McCloud was able to escape the building and police have been scouring the area looking for him. It took a week, but police finally found McCloud – shot to death in a family’s bathtub.

At around 4:30 a.m. Thursday, a man went out to his garage to start his wife’s car and encountered McCloud.…

Jamie GiltPUTNAM COUNTY, FL – A pro-gun activist was shot in the back while driving after her 4-year-old son found her handgun in the backseat of her vehicle.

According to reports, 31-year-old Jamie Gilt was driving down the road when her son found a handgun in the backseat. The boy fired the gun and the bullet traveled through the back of the driver’s seat and entered Gilt’s back.

Gilt pulled over and was noticed by a passing police officer who stopped to offer assistance. Gilt was taken to a hospital in stable condition and her son was placed with family members. The Department of Children and Families has been contacted but, at this time, the shooting is being investigated as accidental.

However, Capt. Joseph Wells said investigators are trying to determine how the boy got his hands on the gun and if he was fastened to his booster seat at the time of the shooting.

“There was a booster seat in the back of the vehicle, but however the boy was not strapped in when the deputy got to them,” Wells said.…

Colleen LoughmanFORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Dashcam footage of 43-year-old Colleen Loughman’s drunk driving arrest shows that Dean Vernon Wormer was right; fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life – especially when you have a 2-year-old child.

According to reports, Loughman had driven several miles down I-95 without a tire before stopping in the emergency lane.

When a trooper stopped to see if she needed assistance, he noted her breath smelled of alcohol, her speech was slurred, and her eyes looked like to freshly fucked assholes.

Inside her vehicle, the trooper found Loughman’s 2-year-old sleeping in his car seat in a vehicle littered with paperwork, open food containers and spilled yogurt.

At first Loughman treats the entire encounter as a joke, even waving at the officer’s dashcam. But her demeanor quickly changes after she fails the officer’s sobriety check and is told she is being arrested for drunk driving.

“Please don’t arrest me! Please!” Loughman can be heard screaming as police try putting her in handcuffs. “I’m going to call CNN!

Felisha WhitcombBAY CITY, MI — Felisha Whitcomb was sentenced to 6 months in jail for lying about a police officer sexually assaulting her during a traffic stop.

On June 17, Whitcomb was pulled over for running a red light and found with a small amount of marijuana. She was arrested and placed in the Iosco County Jail, then released the next day on her own recognizance.

Two days later, Whitcomb showed up at the McLaren Bay Region hospital emergency room stating she had been sexually assaulted by the officer.

She claimed that after she was stopped, the officer handcuffed her, slammed her against his patrol vehicle, then touch her inappropriately with his open palm. She also claimed the officer slammed her head on a K-9 cage when he put her in the back of his vehicle.

Hospital staff called police to relay Whitcomb’s story. A nurse told the responding trooper that while Whitcomb did have some bruising to her scalp and thigh, the injuries were too old to have happened during the incident with the police officer.…

Dean KellyWASHINGTON PARISH, LA – Dean Kelly, former model remembered from an Aerosmith music video, has been charged with trying to hire a hitman to take care of the people who sent him to prison for sex crimes.

Some of you old-timers may remember Kelly from Aerosmith’s “Crazy” video – the one that launched the career of Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler, while also being responsible for the Hand Lotion Shortage of 1993.

In the video, Kelly plays the nose-picking tractor driver who goes skinny-dipping with the young ladies. I have no idea what the hell Kelly has been up to since then, but he was recently charged with forcible rape, felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, second-degree kidnapping and possession of child pornography after being accused of raping a 14-year-old girl in February 2005 and a 17-year-old later that same year.

In 2013, Kelly plead guilty to the lesser crimes of sexual battery and felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile. As part of the plea deal, Kelly received a 10-year suspended prison sentence if he successfully completed five years of probation.…

Brandon WalkerCOLESHILL, UK – Brandon Walker, 19, has been sentenced to 18-months in youth custody after he placed a sewing needle in a co-workers drinking straw, sending her to the hospital to have the needle removed from her throat.

The incident happened two years ago where Walker and the woman both worked at Shustoke Farm Barns, a local wedding venue. Walker, described as being a “loud, cocky and boisterous” practical joker, can be seen in CCTV footage playing with the woman’s straw shortly before she took a drink.

The woman ended up sucking the needle through the straw where it became stuck in her throat. She immediately began retching and coughing up blood-stained bile. Unable to talk, she was rushed to the emergency room where doctors would locate the needle and remove it. She was discharged the next day.

Walker initially denied placing the needle in his co-worker’s straw, but his lawyer would eventually tell the courts that her client has admitted to the deed and was “very ashamed” of what he did.…

Nick HawkinsDORA, AL – Police have arrested a 6th person in connection to the shooting death of 19-year-old Nicholas Hawkins, whose body was found shortly after telling his mother someone was trying to kill him.

On February 13, Hawkins made a frantic phone call to his mother to tell her someone was trying to kill him before his cell phone disconnected. After his vehicle was discovered at a residence the following day, police used search dogs to search a nearby wooded area.

The teen’s body was found at a construction dump site the next day, wrapped in sheets. According to reports, Hawkins had been shot to death.

Police quickly arrested 21-year-old Joshua Reese, the man who Hawkins told his mother was trying to kill him, as well as 28-year-old Cory Daniel Conner and 22-year-old Danny Lee Jarvis. All three have been charged with Hawkins’ murder. Reese is being held on a $500,000 bond, while Conner and Jarvis are each being held on $250,000 bonds.

Reese already has pending charges in Alabama for attempted murder after he was arrested in 2013 for allegedly hitting a man over the head with a gun and then trying to shoot him.…

Lindsey D. HoneycuttMYRTLE BEACH, SC – Four people have been arrested and accused of sexually assaulting two 4-year-old children at multiple locations for five months.

The details regarding these arrests almost sound too depraved to be true but, as longtime DD readers are well aware, we’ve reported on worse.

According to police, two 4-year-olds, a male and a female, told police that they had been sexually abused by Lindsey Honeycutt, 29; Ambrose Heavener, 30; Panteleimon Spirakis, 55; and Anthony Strickland, 45.

These assaults reportedly took place between December 2014 and April 2015 at various locations, including a Myrtle Beach strip club where Honeycutt worked as a dancer.

The victims said that not only were they were forced to have sex with Honeycutt and Heavener, they were also forced to have sex with their siblings and with each other. The female victim said she was had sex with Spirakis — a man charged in 2008 for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old girl for three years.

All four of the accused have been located and are now being detained at J.…

Moriah GonzalesLIVERMORE, CA – Police have charged 20-year-old Moriah Gonzales after she was allegedly caught on camera smothering a crying 13-month-old boy in her care.

Gonzales, who advertised her babysitting services on Care.com, apparently has a nifty technique that will help get a crying child to take a nap.

Police say this technique involves a little bit of determination, and a lot of cutting off the child’s air supply.

According to the probable cause document, Gonzales was caring for a 13-month-old boy last month when a hidden nanny cam captured her performing her Go The Fuck To Sleep method.

In the video, Gonzalez can be seen putting her hands over the crying child’s face until the boy “began to squirm and kick” before going limp. Her job done, Gonzalez leaves the boy in his crib.

The boy was fine by time his mother got home, but the mother saw what happened after she reviewed the video footage. Showing a hell of a lot more restraint than me, the mother let Gonzalez leave the home without telling her what she had seen and then called police.…

The teen became so angry at their repeated attempts to get his ass up, that he grabbed a handgun from his closet and opened fire.
