RALEIGH, NC – Man accused of installing a hidden camera in a woman’s bedroom after her father told him he was not allowed to date her.

Brian Keith Fisher needs relationship help.

The 39-year-old doesn’t have the first clue about women, love, or how to get the latter from the former. The best he could come up with to win that Special Someone over is secret peeping.

He should also probably stop hitting on his friends’ daughters as well.

When the Fuquay-Varina, NC man “expressed romantic feelings” towards his un-named buddy’s 27-year-old daughter, Buddy cut him off short, citing the 12-year difference in their ages.

Buddy probably had additional concerns, like not wanting goofy-looking grandkids, but “you’re too old for Daddy’s Little Girl, you fucking pervert” is the excuse on record.

Rather than taking his friend at his word, Fisher apparently took advantage of a house-sitting gig to make the next move in his romantic pursuit.

He decided to place a hidden camera in his beloved’s bedroom, which was a brilliant move, as nothing will win a woman’s heart, or a reluctant father’s favor, faster than invasion of privacy.…

AMITE, LA – Five family members have been charged after they subjected an autistic woman to a litany of abuses, including forcing her to eat the ashes of her dead mother.

The events you are about to read happened between 2015 and 2016. The family members accused have already been charged and are awaiting trial.

The reason why it is being so widely reported is because the indictment against them was just made public and lists the long, creative list of horrible things they allegedly did o the victim.

The victim is a 22-year-old woman (named only as D.P. in the indictment) who suffers from several disabilities, including severe autism.

D.P. lived with her mother and other family members at her mother’s mobile home until D.P.’s mother died in 2015.

Now left in the care of the remaining family members, D.P. was subjected to extreme abuse — both physical and mental — for the next year.

The family allegedly treated D.P. like an animal, forcing her to live in a cage outside that was covered by a tarp.…

RALEIGH, NC – An elderly North Carolina man drove his car through the front of a Verizon store because his phone was not working and the store was closed.

Everybody hates their cellphone carrier. High rates for inferior products, shitty customer service, and reception that fails when you need it most.

Worst of all, those inconvenient phone store hours.

Combine the latter with the crankiest senior citizen since Vicki Lawrence’s ‘Mama’ and you’re bound to have a mess.

Just ask the staff at the Verizon store in the North Hills shopping center in Raleigh, NC. They found out the hard way that one ignores irate, irrational phone-deprived old men at one’s own peril.

On July 26th, 74-year-old Charles Michael Hager’s phone wasn’t working, and neither were the six staff members in the store, it being a bit after the store’s 8 PM closing time.

Most of us would just curse volubly and stalk away, but one look at the sheer unfettered determination on the face in the accompanying mugshot and you know this isn’t a guy that’s gonna take ‘no’ for an answer.…

CHANDLER, AZ – A man in Arizona has been arrested after he allegedly slit his 89-year-old grandmother’s throat because he was tired of caring for her.

Early Sunday morning, 30-year-old Brandon Smith called 911 to report his grandmother was not breathing and looked like she had been beaten up.

When officers arrived at the apartment Smith shared with his grandmother, they found 89-year-old Helen Smith stabbed to death inside a bathroom.

Brandon had already left the scene before police arrived but was taken into custody shortly afterward. According to police (and his booking photo), Brandon was under the influence of drugs and\or alcohol.

Police say Brandon told them that he was frustrated that he was the only one in the family taking care of his grandmother, who suffered from dementia.

That morning, Helen had urinated on herself so Brandon took her to the bathroom for a shower. Agravated, Brandon slapped his grandmother so hard she fell unconscious in the tub.

Not wanting his grandmother to live like this anymore, Brandon told police he decided to end her suffering.…

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – A man has been charged with murder after he stabbed another man to death during an argument over a handicap-parking space.

No one likes people who abuse handicap-parking spaces. But people in Florida will defend their proper use to the death, it seems.

There was already the guy in Clearwater, FL that was shot to death during an argument over a handicap-parking space, and now we have a Fort Lauderdale man getting stabbed to death over the same thing.

This latest incident happened on July 16 in the parking lot of Little Treasures Academy.

That’s where 40-year-old Oswald Zambrano had parked his SUV in one of the daycare’s handicap-parking spaces to pick up his wife.

Zambrano was sitting in his vehicle when he was confronted by 43-year-old Julio Ramos, who was not too happy about Zambrano being parked in the spot.

After accusing Zambrano of illegally using the spot, an argument ensued in which Ramos demanded Zambrano get out of his vehicle.

From looking at his booking photo, Ramos found he bit off more than he could chew when Zambrano obliged him.…

ARLINGTON, TN – A mother in Tennessee has been charged after she left her 6-month-old child in a car so she could go into a restaurant to drink Margaritas.

A couple were leaving the Cazadores Mexican Grill one evening last month when they heard a baby crying in the parking lot.

After a quick search, they found a baby in the back seat of a vehicle that was not running with the windows partially rolled down. Even worse, the doors were unlocked.

The outside temperature outside at the time was 92 degrees so the temperature inside the vehicle were quite a bit higher. The couple stated the baby did not seem to need emergency medical assistance, but she was sweating and obviously not happy about her situation.

The couple called 911 and emergency responders arrived at the scene to check on the child. It was only then that 26-year-old Rachel Vanwagner ran out of the restaurant barefoot to claim the infant.

She told police she purposefully left her child in the car for about 30 minutes so she could take part in the National Tequila Day festivities and had only been in the restaurant for about 30 minutes.…

LAS VEGAS, NV – Forget the WWE, forget MMA… if you want to see no-rules, no-hold-barred brutality, you don’t have to go further than the nearest Mickey D’s.

The customer isn’t always right. Sometimes you have to put them in their place. Sometimes you have to beat the shit out of them. At least that’s the operant management theory at this particular restaurant.

It all starts routinely enough: people are gorging themselves on McFoodProduct that is slowly killing them, disaffected employees are waiting for the school bell to ring, and a not-very-smart, too-cheap-for-her-own-good bit of fluff, Sabrinah Fontelar (pictured), is trying to pull the old “I just want a water cup so I can fill it with soda” routine.

The manager, Erika Chavolla, is wise to that old schtick, and shuts her down quick via the brilliant tactic of turning the soda machine right the hell off. That’s when the sparks start to fly, and that’s when our video starts.

Buffy Von Short-Shorts’ response is to go into a rage, hurling invectives, abuse, a McFry, and finally a McShake at the counter dwellers.…

DURHAM, NC – Man ordered to pay $8.8 million to the ex-husband of the woman he had an affair with.

This story is pretty unremarkable except for some really interesting legal anomalies because of where it takes place.

Other than that, it’s like half the divorces in the country: filled with the tawdry desperation, lies and deceit found when an unhappily married person tries to fill the gaping hole in their heart with Something New.

The 30,000 foot view: a woman in a bad-from-the-start marriage meets Something New and has an affair, breaking up the marriage in the process.

Her erstwhile husband files a civil suit against Something New and is awarded $8.8 million in damages using a law that only exists in North Carolina and five other states.

The detail is involved and convoluted, and reading it gave me a headache, but we’re going to bull through it and summarize a bit.

Danielle King married Keith King (who is 15 years older than Danielle) in 2010. Keith is a former professional BMX bike competitor that owns a “BMX bike stunt show company” and still rides in his own shows… and that’s a young man’s game.…

GERMANY – Egidius Schiffer aka the “Aachen Strangler,” accidentally electrocuted himself while performing a solo sex act in his jail cell.

For those of you who are not up to par with your foreign serial killers, Schiffer was responsible for the deaths of five female hitchhikers in northwest Germany between 1983 and 1990.

His modus operandi was to pick up women as they left nightclubs. The former insurance salesman would then handcuff and attempt to rape the women before strangling them to death.

Schiffer got caught over a decade after his last murder when he voluntarily gave a DNA sample after getting busted stealing metal from a scrapyard. The DNA ultimately linked him to the deaths of the five women.

Once he was in custody he confessed to the murders but then later retracted his statements. He claimed he was sadomasochistic and made up his involvement as the thought of being locked up in a cell excited him.

Police nor the jury believed a word of it, especially since his confession contained details only the killer would know and his DNA matched the DNA from the crime scenes.…

SPARTANBURG, SC – A woman in South Carolina has been convicted after she killed her baby with salt in an attempt to get her ex-husband back.

Kimberly Martines was an apathetic mother. In November 2015, a pediatrician expressed concern about her daughter, Peyton Martines, citing low weight gain and developmental delays.

The doctor referred her to a specialist. Martines apparently didn’t share the doctor’s concern, as she canceled the appointment.

In 2016, Martines graduated from being apathetic to being homicidal. On July 31st of that year, 17-month-old Peyton was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center with a 103.2 degree fever; she was dehydrated and having a seizure.

Doctors determined that she was suffering from hypernatremia, or acute sodium poisoning. Peyton was placed on life support, to no avail; she was declared brain dead on August 2nd and died the following day.

Of course, Martines had an explanation; her sort always do. It was all a terrible accident. Peyton and her twin sister “got into a bag of salt” and Peyton munched herself to extinction, according to Mommy Dearest.…

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Police say a man dodged a bullet after he was stabbed to death by his fiancé during an argument over a proposed wedding guest.

At around 12:30 a.m Saturday, 31-year-old Jacqueline Souza called 911 to report her fiancé, 33-year Brandon Watkins, was bleeding and had dropped to the floor in their kitchen.

When emergency officials arrived they found Watkins bleeding on the floor with a bloody kitchen knife on a table nearby. Watkins was taken to the hospital but did not survive his injuries.

When questioned by investigators, Souza said she and Watkins had been at a bar celebrating their upcoming wedding and Watkins’ new job.

They got into an argument on the way when Watkins said he wanted to invite one of his ex-girlfriends to their wedding. Souza was angry about this because she felt Watkins was still in a sexual relationship with the woman.

Now here is where Souza’s story changed a couple of times. First she said after arriving home she came out of the bathroom and found Watkins on the kitchen floor with a knife in his chest — suggesting an intruder was the culprit.…

THAILAND – A man in Thailand confessed to cutting off his employee’s penis then throwing the detached member to his pet dogs to eat.

According to reports, 39-year-old Suwit Tipjantha was drinking at the home of his employer, 50-year-old Permsak Petprasert.

When they ran out of alcohol, Permsak and another man left to buy more while leaving Suwit at the home with Permsak’s wife, who was sleeping in another room.

When Permsak returned home, he was greeted by his frantic wife running out of the house claiming that while they were gone Suwit had come into her room and began stroking her arm.

“Me and another friend came back and my wife was screaming,” Permsak said. “She ran to me and said that Suwit had went into the room while she was sleeping and touched her.”

When Permsak went inside his home he witnessed Suwit coming out of his wife’s room wearing only his shorts.

Furious, Permsak attacked Suwit with a hammer rendering him unconscious. This is probably a good thing for Suwit because of what Permsak did next.…
