PHOENIX – Here’s a strange one out of Arizona. A woman initially thought to have died in a car crash had actually been choked to death by her son before the accident.

Tina Ferlet, 41, and her 74-year-old grandmother had travelled to Southern California from Oklahoma to pick up Tina’s teenage son, 16-year-old Nathan Ferlet and his 20-year-old girlfriend. They were on their way back to Oklahoma to try and get Nathan help for his mental illness.

At around 4 a.m. Wednesday morning, while his grandmother was driving through Phoenix, the teen leaned up from the backseat where he was sitting with his girlfriend, and began choking his mom sitting in the passenger seat.

The grandmother pulled into a convenience store parking lot and got out to get help, only to jump in the backseat when the teen got in the driver’s seat and drove off.

Nathan’s grandmother and girlfriend tried to get him to stop the car but he didn’t until an hour and 42 minutes later when he struck another vehicle.…

Phoenix, Arizona –– Last year, Jaded posted about Chance Kracke, the tweaker who placed his infant inside a freezer while high on meth. The 24-year-old pleaded guilty to the two counts of child abuse and now Judge Robert Gottsfield sentenced him to ten years in prison and probation for the rest of his life.

Kracke told police he was doped up on meth when he thought it would be a good idea to put his son in the freezer and closed the door because the floor was too dirty for him to sit on. He then told them he removed the baby (anywhere from three to 20 minutes later) when the infant started to cry.

Luckily the boy only suffered lacerations to his head, which doctors say could have been cause by the freezer door or a shelf.

The boy’s mother, 26-year-old Leann Kracke, did not call police because she says her husband threatened to harm her if she did. It was the boy’s grandmother who called 911 after seeing her grandson’s injuries.…

Glendale, AZ — In September of ’09, Veronica Linares’ 9-month-old daughter died after eating a packet of methamphetamine her mother had stashed next to the snacks in the bottom drawer of a dresser in the nursery. What? Like you don’t keep yours there, too…

The child, born with a heavy concentration of meth already in her system, was placed with a foster family shortly after birth and had only been back in her mother’s custody for a week when she died. According to police, CPS reports show Linares made statements about never wanting the kid and wishing the child was dead. Yet the baby was returned to the worthless meth-addicted incubator anyway….nice.

Shortly after the little girl’s death, Linares squished out another meth baby. That child, now a year old, was immediately taken by the state and placed into the care of other family members. Without pesky children to tie her down, Linares disappeared.

Police finally caught up with Linares on Wednesday and booked her on child abuse and second-degree murder charges.…

Phoenix, AZ — Police say an 11-year-old girl was severely and brutally beaten by a family member just moments after being sexually assaulted by that family member’s friend. Arrested was 34-year-old Jon Gary – a man police say has raised the child since she was an infant.

According to authorities, Gary witnessed his adult friend sexually assaulting the child on January 10. The friend accused of molesting the child later told police that Gary ordered the girl into her room and hit him once before retreating to the kid’s bedroom to kick her ass. The alleged rapist told police he left the home after Gary pointed a gun at him.

The victim, who ultimately spent 6 days in ICU, doesn’t remember anything before the beating other than drinking some “some soda that tasted funny.” She does remember Gary kicking, punching and stomping her until she lost consciousness. She was hospitalized with a liver laceration, a right adrenal gland hemorrhage, an acute 11th rib fracture, a concussion, an acute vaginal injury, and multiple bruises.…

December 28, 2010 at 3:50 pm by  

Phoenix, Arizona — Police say the man who opened fire at the Great Alaskan Bush Company had left his home with intentions of committing the act and picked people to shoot at random. Gavin MacFarlane, 28, paid for a topless dance, a full nude dance and a beer he did not touch before walking out of the strip club to retrieve a handgun from his vehicle. When he walked back in, he opened fire. When he ran out of ammo, he was tackled by other patrons and subdued until police arrived. Sadly, MacFarlane was able to shoot four people. Adam Troy Cooley, 34, a security guard, was shot and killed after he stepped in between MacFarlane and a dancer. Antonio Garcia, 20, was shot and killed. A 22-year-old man was wounded while a a 20-year-old topless dancer was reportedly shot in the arm. MacFarlane hit another man in the face with his gun after he ran out of bullets. Court documents reveal MacFarlane told investigators he planned the attack. “Gavin stated that he had brought the weapon with him as part of a plan he had formulated in his mind…with the intention of shooting the first people he came in contact with,” police wrote.…

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Police have charged 32-year-old Dominic Chagolla with murder, saying he stabbed his mother to death then hid her body in the back of her car. Last Wednesday, the family of 50-year-old Maria Chagolla contacted police after she never returned home after leaving to drop off her son. Dominic showed up alone an hour later and was very evasive as to the whereabouts of his mother. Police would locate Maria’s body five days later on the floor in the back of her car covered with a blanket. She had multiple stab wounds to her face, including both of her eyes. Dominic claims he is innocent, having last seen his mother after she dropped him off so he could go jogging. But two witnesses said they saw a suspicious man in the neighborhood with a black gym bag later jump a fence without the gym bag. The two men found the gym bag in a neighbor’s trash and found bloody clothing and shoes matching what Dominic was seen wearing earlier that day.…

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Yesterday detectives arrested Don Underwood, a doctor of naturopathic medicine and a licensed acupuncturist, on seven counts of child molestation. The charges came after an employee of the doctor told police that her 9-year-old son told her about a “tickling game” he and Underwood played at his home while naked in bed. Detectives say Underwood has sort of admitted that he engaged in sexual conduct with a boy. “He hasn’t admitted anything that would rise to the level that he believes he committed a crime. He is specifying that what he did was for medical purposes and bonding purposes. He is somewhat in denial with our detectives right now.” Maricopa County Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Lee said. The doctor lived alone, but a said he’s seen kids at his house but thought they were Underwood’s. He has been booked on seven counts of child molestation and three counts of sexual contact with a minor. Authorities suspect there may be more victims and encourage anyone with information to call 602-876-1818.…

TEMPE, AZ –– Stories will be sparse today as I am off and Jaded is so drunk at the moment she is running around the front yard waving away bats she says are trying to braid her hair. But I did want to post a few stories this morning, including the fact they made an arrest in the death of Kyleigh Sousa. She was the gorgeous ASU student who was dragged to death back in May when some jackass reached outside of a car and grabbed her purse outside a IHOP. She got tangled in the straps and ended up hitting her head on the pavement. After receiving hundreds of tips and a traffic photo of the suspect in a 2008 gold Dodge Charger, 20-year-old Joseluis Marquez has been arrested and has been charged with first degree murder. There were other people in the car who identified Marquez as the driver as well as the person who grabbed Sousa’s purse. None of the passengers have been charged with a crime at this time.…

Phoeniz, AZ –– An off-duty police officer is facing domestic abuse charges after allegedly choking his live-in girlfriend. According to the report, 29-year-old Sutton Wohlman and his girlfriend had just arrived home from a fundraiser where Wohlman had gotten shitfaced after consuming anywhere from 11 to 14 drinks. When his girlfriend tried to pull him out of the car, Wohlman threw her to the ground and began choking her. A witness was in her car and observed Wohlman choking the victim inside the garage. “She was screaming for her life, what her screams sounded like. And he was yelling at her, asking for forgiveness of some sort,” the witness stated. Afraid to get out of the car, the witness called 911 just before Wohlman’s girlfriend broke free. “As soon as she turned her head and saw me, she ran towards my car, frantically screaming for help,” said the witness. When police arrived they found Wohlman sitting on the floor of the garage with a pistol holstered on his ankle. When the responding officer grabbed his arm, Wohlman punched him in the face.…

Sunrise, AZ — Police say a 12-year-old boy pulled a knife on his mother after an argument about his desire to dress up as a gay Justin Bieber for Halloween…which, in itself is redundant, but whatever. The parental unit nixed the idea, telling the boy his costume idea was disrespectful. Whether she thought it was disrespectful to gays or to Justin Biebers is unknown at this point. After a verbal argument and a temper tantrum, the boy was grounded from trick-or-treating. He then reportedly grabbed a knife from his room and threatened to kill his mother. Mom was able to disarm the child without injury and call the police. When the boys in blue arrived, the kid was arrested on suspicion of threatening his mother with a knife. I guess I gotta give mom props for keeping her cool and not smacking the kid stupid(er)…had I pulled that shit on my mother, I’d still be picking shoe leather out of my ass. If you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years and have no idea what a Justin Bieber is, I have attached one of his “music” videos for your viewing enjoyment.…

Tucson Teen Charged With The Murder Of Her Father

November 4, 2010 at 10:38 am by  

Tucson, AZ — Tucson police have arrested a man’s 16-year-old daughter in connection with his murder, along with her 19-year old boyfriend. Police were called to a home on Sunday after a family filed a missing persons report. They told police 40-year-old Andres Sanchez had been missing since Oct 20th, but had not reported anything as they believed he had left voluntarily. “The family had received information from what they thought at the time to be from him and that he had left on his own free will,” said Sgt. Diana Lopez. Police were called back out to the home early Monday morning after the family obtained further information that led to his daughter, Clarissa Andrea Sanchez, and her boyfriend, Larry Raymond Coronado, being taken to police headquarters for further questioning. Later that day officers were sent to a stretch of desert northwest of 40th and San Joaquin where they would find a badly decomposed body. They have not listed a cause of death aside from saying the body showed signs of trauma.…

MESA, Ariz. — Police have arrested a man who thinks he is a vampire after he failed to register as a sex offender as part of his probation. Robert Gray has permanent dental implants resembling fangs, sleeps in a coffin and drives a hearse. He’s also a sex offender convicted of molesting a young girl and for the last two months Marshals have been looking for him after he failed to register as a sex offender as part of his probation. He was nabbed along with 30 other fugitives during the U. S. Marshals’ Operation Safe Treat, an operation that targets anyone convicted of a sex crime. “They’re not supposed to participate in Halloween activities. We go around with probation (officers) and make sure (offenders) are following the rules. If they’re not, then they’re arrested,” said Deputy Marshal Eric Anderson. Deputies say that Gray hissed at them when he was arrested. I knew he wasn’t a real vampire the second I read he molested a girl. Everyone knows vampires are gay.…
